Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Live like a king.
  Live like a lord.
  Live like a prince.
  Live like fighting cocks.
  Will live together like two wanton vines.
            —Beaumont and Fletcher
He would live like a lamp, to the last wink,
And crawl upon the utmost verge of life.
            —John Dryden
  I live in the town like a lion in his desert, or an eagle in his rock, too great for friendship or society, and condemned to solitude by unhappy elevation and dreaded ascendency.
            —Dr. Samuel Johnson
