Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Active as an ape.
Austere as so many weather-beaten ascetics from the desert.
Black as a wolfs mouth.
Bursting like an overdone potato.
Cling to the old house as barnacles to a wrecked and stranded vessel.
Fits as a shell fits a crab.
Forward like a fierce hound straining on a leash.
Gleaming like shot silk in the sunshine.
Healthy as a May hedge in bloom.
Luminous as a panthers skin.
Panting like a spent hound.
Puffy as a cheesecake.
Silently as a fish in a stream.
Swayed rhythmically in one direction like a wheatfield in a squall.
Swiftly like a cloud scud on a breezy day.
The air was as thick as the main deck in a close-fought action.
Vanish as easily as an eel into sand.
