Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Constant as a shadow in the sun.
  Constant in motion as the spheres.
  Constantly in my thoughts, like the lost voice of his victim in those of the murderer.
More constant than the evening star,
Which mildly beams above.
  Constant as the dove.
            —Mrs. James Hunter
  Constancy is like vnto the Storke, who wheresoeuer she flye commeth into no neast but hir owne, or the Lapwinge, whom nothing can driue from hir young ones, but death.
            —John Lyly
  Constant as the years are rolled.
      Her constancy, that, like a rock,
Beats off temptation, as that mocks the fury
Of the proud waves.
            —Philip Massinger
  Constant in intercommunication as are the sun and earth.
            —George Meredith
  Constant as the day and night from east to west.
            —James Montgomery
  Constant as the stars that never move.
            —Thomas Otway
  Constant as the sun.
            —Charles Reade
  Constant as the constant hours.
            —Margaret E. Sangster
But I am as constant as the northern star
Of whose true-fix’d and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.
            —William Shakespeare
  Constantly as the week passes.
            —Abigail A. Smith
  Constant as a soaring lark.
            —William Wordsworth
  Constant as the motion of the day.
            —William Wordsworth
