Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Andrew Lang
  Dull as lead.  1
  Eyes like the flower that was Rousseau’s delight.  2
  Fancies flit, and wheel like butterflies on banks of thyme.  3
  Glows like the diamond in the presence of radium.  4
  Increased, like a spreading sore.  5
  Obsolete as the Minotaur of Crete.  6
  More pale than the meadows of Anjou.  7
  Sifted, drifted, like the sun of sands in wastes Arabian.  8
  Flies as swift as shafts the bowmen pour.  9
  Weak as young corn withered, whereof no man may gather and make bread.  10
