Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Allen Butler
 
  Calm as Heaven’s serenest deeps.  1
  Crazy as a June bug.  2
  Fixed as the polar star.  3
  As forlorn as the faded coquette.  4
In fact, man ain’t constructed for a heavy strain of bliss.
Human beings are like boilers, and the same rules, it would seem,
Have an equal application to affection and steam.
