Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Walter Pater
 
  A book, like a person, has its fortunes with one; is lucky or unlucky in the precise moment of its falling in our way, and often by some happy accident ranks with us for something more than its independent value.  1
  Ineradicable, like some persistent vegetable growth, because its seed is an element of the very soil out of which it springs.  2
  Opinions!—they are like the clothes we wear, which warm us, not with their heat, but with ours.  3
