Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
George Chapman
 
  Cures are like causes in law, which may be lengthened or shortened at the discretion of the lawyer.  1
    His deeds inimitable, like the sea
That shuts still as it opes, and leaves no tracts
Nor prints of precedent for poor men’s facts.
  2
  As cedars beaten with continual storms, so great men flourish.  3
  Melt like two hungry torrents.  4
  Plain as truth.  5
  Spread like wild-geese.  6
  Start like sparkles from a fire.  7
  Thick like two hungry torrents.  8
  Wholesome as the morning air.  9
