Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Fernán Caballero
  Happiness, like the blue of the sky, cannot be lasting, for the earth, to yield its fruits, requires the rain, and man to estimate at their true value this life and the next, has need of tears.  1
  Motionless as a statue.  2
  Scamper off and disappear like a flight of partridges.  3
  Sparkled like a garnet in the light.  4
  Sparkling like a star.  5
  Tranquil as a child who goes to gather flowers.  6
