constancy

Be firm in faith through life's tests and trials.
Break not your word of honor whatever may befall.
Hold your ideal high in all circumstances.
Keep to your principles in prosperity as well as in adversity.
Uphold your honor at any cost.
Do not neglect those who depend upon you.
Observe constancy in love.
Blessed are the unselfish friends and they whose motto in life is constancy.
Meet the world with smiles in all conditions of life.
Bring out the Beloved in others.

Surveying the available alternative energy sources for criteria such as energy density, environmental impacts, reliance on depleting raw materials, intermittency versus constancy of supply, and the percentage of energy returned on the energy invested in energy production, none currently appears capable of perpetuating this kind of society

So it is not really the gradualism of Darwin that the punctuationists oppose: gradualism means that each generation is only slightly different from the previous generation; you would have to be a saltationist to oppose that, and Eldredge and Gould are not saltationists. Rather, it turns out to be Darwin's alleged belief in the constancy of rates of evolution that they and other punctuationists object to... it is all too easy to confuse gradualism (the belief, held by modern punctuationists as well as Darwin, that there are no sudden leaps between one generation and the next) with 'constant evolutionary speedism' (opposed by punctuationists and allegedly, though not actually, held by Darwin). They are not the same thing at all.

The defects and faults of the mind are like wounds in the body; after all imaginable care has been taken to heal them up, still there will be a scar left behind, and they are in continual danger of breaking the skin and bursting out again.

Now the time is come, That France must veil her lofty-plumed crest, And let her head fall into England's lap.
