Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Bishop John Earle
 
  His breast is like a gentlewoman’s closet, which locks up every toy or trifle, or some bragging mountebank that makes every stinking thing a secret.  1
  Great brains, like brightest glass, crack straight; those of stone or wood hold out, and fear not blows.  2
  Like one drowning fastens upon anything that is next at hand.  3
