Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Thomas Heywood
 
  Black as stormy darkness.  1
  Close as night.  2
  Her sweet content is like a flattering glass to make my face seem fairer to mine eye.  3
  Dear as his eyeball.  4
  ’Scape as did Arion on the Dolphin’s back.  5
  Gracious as a mediæval queen.  6
  Hard to enter my belief as Dives into heaven.  7
  Honest a man as ever lived by bread.  8
  Lean as a lath.  9
  Necessary as one’s digestion.  10
  Rebellious as the sea.  11
  Senseless as stones.  12
  Smiling like a cherry.  13
  Smooth as ice.  14
  Soft as jelly.  15
  Spotless as an angel.  16
  Spotless as the noon.  17
  Stiff as a rubbing brush.  18
  Void of pity as chased bears.  19
  Wet as a drowned rat.  20
  As white as bear’s teeth.  21
