Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
George W. Curtis
Expiring like the deserted camp-fires of a retiring army.
As finely flexible as linen.
Quiver, as if they stood upon the verge of an imminent peril.
Redolent as a clover-field of honey.
Sure as the witch-hazel towards treasure.
Trivial as to attempt to blow out the stars.
As trivial as if a painter should put real gold upon his canvas instead of representing gold by means of paint.
