Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Martin Luther
 
  Faith, like light, should ever be simple and unbending.  1
  The human heart is like a millstone in a mill; when you put wheat under it, it turns and grinds, and bruises the wheat into flour; if you put no wheat in it, it still grinds on; but then it is itself it grinds, and slowly wears away.  2
  A lie is like a snow-ball; the longer it is rolled, the larger it is.  3
  Human reason is like a drunken man on horseback; set it up on one side, and it tumbles over on the other.  4
  Sound as a fish.  5
