Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Björnstjerne Björnson
  Clean as a maiden’s honor.  1
  Fly around like a bat in the twilight.  2
  Forsaken like some old house one moves out of and locks up when one has gotten a new one.  3
  Running as if they had hot coals in their shoes.  4
  Settlements between married people are like throwing oneself out of the window a second time in order to discover how it happened the first time.  5
