Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
George D. Prentice
  A pin has as much head as some authors and a great deal more point.  1
  As beautiful as ’twere a dewy flower.  2
  Courage, like cowardice, is undoubtedly contagious, but some persons are not liable to catch it.  3
  Faded like a wreath of mist at eve.  4
Like sounds upon the wind-harp’s chords when all the winds are still.
