Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
George W. Curtis
 
  Expiring like the deserted camp-fires of a retiring army.  1
  As finely flexible as linen.  2
  Quiver, as if they stood upon the verge of an imminent peril.  3
  Redolent … as a clover-field of honey.  4
  Sure … as the witch-hazel towards treasure.  5
  Trivial as to attempt to blow out the stars.  6
  As trivial as if a painter should put real gold upon his canvas instead of representing gold by means of paint.  7
