Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Dr. John Doran
 
  Bright and steady as a sunbeam.  1
  Dry as granite.  2
  Glittered like dragon-flies.  3
  Pure as the stars in yon blue sky.  4
  Scarlet as Major Bagstock.  5
  Sparkling as Mercutio.  6
  Sprang, like the twin fountains of Benasji, from a divided source.  7
  Swear like a drunken tapster.  8
  Sweet as Anadyomene rising from the sea.  9
  As timid, touching and inquiring, as she who charmed the gods from the threshold of Olympus.  10
