Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Moving constantly, like the spheres.
Gently she moved in the calmness of beauty,
Moved as the bough to the light breeze of morning.
  Moving like heaven still in the self-same moving.
            —Phineas Fletcher
A wizard wind did faintly move,
Like a whisper through a dream.
            —Owen Meredith
  When everything moves equally, nothing moves apparently: as on a ship.
            —Blaise Pascal
Moving, like a skeptic’s thought,
Out of nowhere into naught.
            —James Whitcomb Riley
  Moved one like the finest eloquence.
            —Alexander Smith
