Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
George Chapman
  Cures are like causes in law, which may be lengthened or shortened at the discretion of the lawyer.  1
    His deeds inimitable, like the sea
That shuts still as it opes, and leaves no tracts
Nor prints of precedent for poor men’s facts.
  As cedars beaten with continual storms, so great men flourish.  3
  Melt like two hungry torrents.  4
  Plain as truth.  5
  Spread like wild-geese.  6
  Start like sparkles from a fire.  7
  Thick like two hungry torrents.  8
  Wholesome as the morning air.  9
