Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Without favor, art is like a wind-mill without wind.  1
  Cries as deafening, as the shout that breaks from the bribed audience, when Fesidius speaks.  2
  Fierce as a tigress plundered of her young.  3
  Apples, as fragrant, and as bright a hue, as those which in Alcinou’s gardens grew, mellowed by constant sunshine; or as those, which graced the Hesperides, in burnished rows.  4
  Invisible as air.  5
Shouts like Egypt, when her priests have found,
A new Osiris, for the old one drowned.
