Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
New York Sun
  As boldly as a sunflower faces the orb of day.  1
  We believe that mendacity, like marriage, is essentially a human convention and that in Heaven there is neither lying nor giving the lie.  2
  As pitiless to them as the Hyrcanian tiger to a lamb chop in the original wool.  3
  Silent as a steam calliope with a broken boiler.  4
  Smile like an Oil Trust.  5
