Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Habit may be likened to a cable; every day we weave a thread, and soon we cannot break it.
  Habits are like the wrinkles on a man’s brow; if you will smooth out the one, I will smooth out the other.
            —Josh Billings
  Bad habits are as infectious by example as the plague itself by contact.
            —Henry Fielding
