  Jarred on the ear like a squeaking lead-pencil.
            —William Archer
  Jarred horrid, like the rusted hinge upon a door of hell, like the shrill scream outbursting from a frightened charger’s throat, like the rasp of a tang of brass against an iron gate.
            —Victor Hugo
  Jars like a butting ram.
            —William J. Lampton
