Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Henry A. Clapp
  Clinging like a faint odor.  1
  Cling to the memory as tenaciously as the fragrance of lavender clings to glove or lace.  2
  Dead as Scrooge’s partner.  3
  Masterful as the blind instinct that compels the migration of schools of fish.  4
  Sound-hearted to the core, like some perfect fruit ripened in a sunny nook of an English garden.  5
  Thin as the petal of the cotton blossom.  6
