|Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.|
|And similes in each dull line,|
Like glow-worms in the dark should shine.
| What liuely similitudes & comparisons, as the righteous man to a baie tree, the Soule to a thirstie Hart, vnitie to oyntment and the dew of Hermon.|
|Similes are like songs in love;|
They much describe; they nothing prove.
| Similes prove nothing, but yet greatly lighten and relieve the tedium of argument.|
