Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
John Tillotson
 
  Sincerity is like travelling on a plain, beaten road, which commonly brings a man sooner to his journey’s end than byways, in which men often lose themselves.  1
  He that is deeply engaged in vice, is like a man laid fast in a bag, who, by a faint and lazy struggling to get out, does but spend his strength to any purpose, and sinks himself the deeper in it: the only way is, by a resolute and vigorous effort to spring out, if possible, at once.  2
