Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Paul Whitehead
  Fix’d as oaks.  1
Like the young lion wounded by the dart,
Whose fury kindled at the galling smart;
The hero rouses with redoubled rage,
Flies on the foe, and foams upon the stage.
Manners, like fashions, still from courts descend,
And what the great begin, the vulgar end.
