Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Penn
 
  Watch against anger; neither speak of it nor act in it; for, like drunkenness, it makes a man a beast, and throws people into desperate inconvenience.  1
  A man, like a watch, is to be valued for his manner of going.  2
  A passionate man is like a weak spring, that cannot stand long locked.  3
