Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
George Crabbe
 
  Calm as infant-love.  1
  Dreams are like portraits; and we find they please because they are confessed resemblances.  2
  A great lie is like a great fish on dry land; it may fret and fling, and make a frightful bother, but it cannot hurt you; you have only to keep still and it will die of itself.  3
For party poets are like wasps, who dart
Death to themselves, and to their foes but smart.
  4
Wine is like anger; for it makes us strong,
Blind and impatient, and it leads us wrong;
The strength is quickly lost; we feel the error long.
