Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Ivan Turgenev
  Dumb and mighty, as a tree grows on a fruitful soil.  1
  Incessant as the squeaking cry of a monkey.  2
  Emotional effusions are like licorice-root. When you take your first suck at it, it doesn’t seem so bad, but it leaves a very bad taste in your mouth afterward.  3
  Sparkling like young wine which has ceased to ferment.  4
  The egoist withers like a solitary barren tree.  5
