Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Hannah More
  Cold as the snows of Rhodope.  1
  Dear as light.  2
  Dear as the vital stream that feeds my heart.  3
  Lie like a book of anecdotes.  4
  Pleasure, like an over-fed lamp, is extinguished by the excess of its own aliment.  5
  Posturing, for all the world just like the man on the slack rope at our fair.  6
  Steadfast as the pole-star.  7
  Terrible as war.  8
