How do you say something is similar to, or something is like something else?

Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough but how do you say something is like something else.

An example of what I mean would be:

That man is as tall as a building.
As steady as a stone.
a spider that is like a cat.

Hopefully someone can help and thank you in advance for reading my question.
