Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  A poor man without patience is like a lamp without oil.  1
                Dimly traced
Like moss-grown letters on a mouldering stone.
Gently she moved in the calmness of beauty,
Moved as the bough to the light breeze of morning.
  White as the stem of a young palm.  4
  White as paper of Syria.  5
