Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Sir Thomas Browne
 
  For God is like a skilful Geometrician, who, when more easily and with one stroke of his Compass he might describe or divide a right line, had yet rather do this in a circle or longer way, according to the constituted and forelaid principle of his art.  1
  Heresies perish not with their authors, but, like the river Arethusa, though they lose their currents in one place, they rise up again in another.  2
