Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
John Heywood
 
  Broad as barn doors.  1
  Comely as is a cow in a cage.  2
  Thou goest like a dromedary, dreary and drowsy.  3
  As far exceed … as doth the flower the weed.  4
  Hard as wire.  5
  As meet as a rope for a thief.  6
  Mend as sour ale in summer.  7
  Presumptuous as Haman the halt.  8
  Rich as newshorn sheep.  9
  Right as a line.  10
  Rugged as burrs.  11
  Sharp as a handsaw.  12
  Sharp as her needle.  13
  Slippery as an eel’s tail.  14
  As wise as a woodcock.  15
