Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Henry Mackenzie
 
  Domestic calamity is like the miniature of a friend, which we wear in our bosoms, and keep for secret looks and solitary enjoyment.  1
  Hideous as the witch of Endor.  2
  Masculine as a fox chase.  3
  Returned, like the first messenger of Noah.  4
  Sentiment, like religion, had its superstition and its martyrdom.  5
  Tedious and dull as truth.  6
  Tender, as if it twinned with sorrow.  7
