Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Thomas Shadwell
  Her dazzle like the sun in his Meridian.  1
  Dive, like ducks.  2
  Lean as a skeleton.  3
  A wise man is never disappointed. Man’s life is like a game at tables; if at any time the cast you most shall need does not come up, let that which comes instead of it be mended by your play.  4
  Moody as a poet.  5
  As ridiculous as to venture your life for another man’s quarrel.  6
  Snores like the base-pipe of an Organ.  7
  Thin as a skeleton.  8
  Troublesome as a monkey.  9
  Witless as a jackdaw.  10
