Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Paul Bourget
  Charitable as a whole convent.  1
  Clashing in a frenzy as of a resounding battle.  2
  His vulture nature had already linked itself to this poor little soul as a spider binds a fluttering insect in its web, which the little thing tries vainly to break.  3
  Stretch away, like the perspective of a dream.  4
  Uprise like the islands of the Cyclades as seen from the mountains of Negroponte.  5
