Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Sir William Schwenk Gilbert
 
  Blind as death itself.  1
  Calm as a lake in heaven.  2
  Curled up in his heart, like a little squirrel in its nest.  3
  As dear to me as my own right hand.  4
  Free as a mountain bird.  5
  Free as a tethered ass.  6
  Helpless as the dead.  7
  Imperceptibly as old age comes on.  8
  As innocent as a new-laid egg.  9
  Pert as a school-girl well can be.  10
  Pure as the summer sun of Southern heaven.  11
  Start, like a frightened roe.  12
  Sweet … as the new-mown hay.  13
  Thrills … like a thing of song and gladness.  14
  True as the sun.  15
  Trustful as innocence.  16
                Unsettles
Like a bed of stinging nettles.
  17
  Welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring.  18
