Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Sir Edward Sherburne
  Man, like this sublunary world, is born the sport of two cross planets, love and scorn.  1
  Smooth as the elephant’s new polished tooth.  2
Woman the other world resembles well,
In whose looks Heav’n is, in whose breast is Hell.
