Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  As much pity is to be taken of a woman weeping, as of a goose going barefoot.
            —Robert Burton
And pity, like a naked, new-born babe,
Striding the blast, or heaven’s cherubin, hors’d
Upon the sightless couriers of the air,
Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye,
That tears shall drown the wind.
            —William Shakespeare
