Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Hermann Sudermann
 
  A life bowed under its own wealth as the vine is bowed under its fruit.  1
  Faint as the moonlight that rests upon your sleep, or the first glow of dawn that wakes you to new endeavor.  2
  Emotion extinguished instantly, like a lighted match in a water-butt.  3
  Rocked like a mass of jelly that has been invisibly shaken.  4
  Voice … like a peace-giving orison.  5
