But sometimes it was a really noble and inspiring strain that reached these woods, and the trumpet that sings of fame, and I felt as if I could spit a Mexican with a good relish--for why should we always stand for trifles?--and looked round for a woodchuck or a skunk to exercise my chivalry upon.

The old prince always dressed in old-fashioned style, wearing an antique coat and powdered hair; and when Prince Andrew entered his father's dressing room (not with the contemptuous look and manner he wore in drawing rooms, but with the animated face with which he talked to Pierre), the old man was sitting on a large leather-covered chair, wrapped in a powdering mantle, entrusting his head to Tikhon.
The prince, who generally kept very strictly to social distinctions and rarely admitted even important government officials to his table, had unexpectedly selected Michael Ivanovich (who always went into a corner to blow his nose on his checked handkerchief) to illustrate the theory that all men are equals, and had more than once impressed on his daughter that Michael Ivanovich was "not a whit worse than you or I."
"The past always seems good," said he, "but did not Suvorov himself fall into a trap Moreau set him, and from which he did not know how to escape?"
Only those things he always kept with him remained in his room; a small box, a large canteen fitted with silver plate, two Turkish pistols and a saber--a present from his father who had brought it from the siege of Ochakov.
But think, Andrew: for a young society woman to be buried in the country during the best years of her life, all alone--for Papa is always busy, and I... well, you know what poor resources I have for entertaining a woman used to the best society.
You know I always was a savage, and now am even more so.

Though the words of the order were not clear to the regimental commander, and the question arose whether the troops were to be in marching order or not, it was decided at a consultation between the battalion commanders to present the regiment in parade order, on the principle that it is always better to "bow too low than not bow low enough."
You're always like that; you thwow a thing down anywhere and forget it.
You may take offense or not but I always stick to mother truth.
His face with its long mustache was serious as always, only his eyes were brighter than usual.
"Ah, that's always the way!" said Nesvitski with a wave of the hand.
It was already quite dark when Prince Andrew rattled over the paved streets of Brunn and found himself surrounded by high buildings, the lights of shops, houses, and street lamps, fine carriages, and all that atmosphere of a large and active town which is always so attractive to a soldier after camp life.
In society he always awaited an opportunity to say something striking and took part in a conversation only when that was possible.
His conversation was always sprinkled with wittily original, finished phrases of general interest.
His thin, worn, sallow face was covered with deep wrinkles, which always looked as clean and well washed as the tips of one's fingers after a Russian bath.
His small, deep-set eyes always twinkled and looked out straight.
Prince Andrew, being always near the commander in chief, closely following the mass movements and general orders, and constantly studying historical accounts of battles, involuntarily pictured to himself the course of events in the forthcoming action in broad outline.
Amid the smoke, deafened by the incessant reports which always made him jump, Tushin not taking his pipe from his mouth ran from gun to gun, now aiming, now counting the charges, now giving orders about replacing dead or wounded horses and harnessing fresh ones, and shouting in his feeble voice, so high pitched and irresolute.
Only when a man was killed or wounded did he frown and turn away from the sight, shouting angrily at the men who, as is always the case, hesitated about lifting the injured or dead.
The soldiers, for the most part handsome fellows and, as is always the case in an artillery company, a head and shoulders taller and twice as broad as their officer--all looked at their commander like children in an embarrassing situation, and the expression on his face was invariably reflected on theirs.
In the darkness, it seemed as though a gloomy unseen river was flowing always in one direction, humming with whispers and talk and the sound of hoofs and wheels.

He was always hearing such words as: "With your remarkable kindness," or, "With your excellent heart," "You are yourself so honorable Count," or, "Were he as clever as you," and so on, till he began sincerely to believe in his own exceptional kindness and extraordinary intelligence, the more so as in the depth of his heart it had always seemed to him that he really was very kind and intelligent.
He was always busy and always felt in a state of mild and cheerful intoxication.
Formerly in Anna Pavlovna's presence, Pierre had always felt that what he was saying was out of place, tactless and unsuitable, that remarks which seemed to him clever while they formed in his mind became foolish as soon as he uttered them, while on the contrary Hippolyte's stupidest remarks came out clever and apt.
She was, as always at evening parties, wearing a dress such as was then fashionable, cut very low at front and back.
She paused, as women always do, expecting something after they have mentioned their age.
She says little, but what she does say is always clear and simple, so she is not stupid.
"But no doubt it always is and must be so!" he consoled himself.
"Something special is always said in such cases," he thought, but could not remember what it was that people say.

Boris, in the accurate way characteristic of him, was building a little pyramid of chessmen with his delicate white fingers while awaiting Berg's move, and watched his opponent's face, evidently thinking about the game as he always thought only of whatever he was engaged on.
Prince Andrew always became specially keen when he had to guide a young man and help him to worldly success.
However far he has walked, whatever strange, unknown, and dangerous places he reaches, just as a sailor is always surrounded by the same decks, masts, and rigging of his ship, so the soldier always has around him the same comrades, the same ranks, the same sergeant major Ivan Mitrich, the same company dog Jack, and the same commanders.
The well-known old door handle, which always angered the countess when it was not properly cleaned, turned as loosely as ever.
She says: 'I shall love him always, but let him be free.'
No, but you are so nice... but it won't do...not that... but as a friend, I shall always love you.
A bit touched--I always said so.
Partly because of the depressing memories associated with Bald Hills, partly because Prince Andrew did not always feel equal to bearing with his father's peculiarities, and partly because he needed solitude, Prince Andrew made use of Bogucharovo, began building and spent most of his time there.
"Oh, leave off, you always talk nonsense and keep putting things off-- and this is what comes of it!" said Prince Andrew in an exasperated whisper, evidently meaning to wound his sister.
Karl Ivanich always says that sleep is more important than anything, whispered Princess Mary with a sigh.
Yes, yes, he's always poking fun at me....
Pierre blushed, as he always did when it was mentioned, and said hurriedly: I will tell you some time how it all happened.
Men always did and always will err, and in nothing more than in what they consider right and wrong.
So that's what I'm sorry for--human dignity, peace of mind, purity, and not the serfs' backs and foreheads, which, beat and shave as you may, always remain the same backs and foreheads.
I feel that I cannot vanish, since nothing vanishes in this world, but that I shall always exist and always have existed.
Prince Andrew led Pierre to his own apartments, which were always kept in perfect order and readiness for him in his father's house; he himself went to the nursery.
When Pierre had gone and the members of the household met together, they began to express their opinions of him as people always do after a new acquaintance has left, but as seldom happens, no one said anything but what was good of him.
Let them twy me, but I'll always thwash scoundwels... and I'll tell the Empewo'...
"I should like to see the great man," he said, alluding to Napoleon, whom hitherto he, like everyone else, had always called Buonaparte.
As soon as he noticed a French officer, who thrust his head out of the door, that warlike feeling of hostility which he always experienced at the sight of the enemy suddenly seized him.
Always the same and always a fraud?
Always the same and always a fraud?
As happens to some people, especially to men who judge those near to them severely, he always on meeting anyone new-- especially anyone whom, like Speranski, he knew by reputation--expected to discover in him the perfection of human qualities.
Even those members who seemed to be on his side understood him in their own way with limitations and alterations he could not agree to, as what he always wanted most was to convey his thought to others just as he himself understood it.
Only to this aim can we always strive independently of circumstances.
At that time, as always happens, the highest society that met at court and at the grand balls was divided into several circles, each with its own particular tone.
At these parties his feelings were like those of a conjuror who always expects his trick to be found out at any moment.
Anna Mikhaylovna also had of late visited them less frequently, seemed to hold herself with particular dignity, and always spoke rapturously and gratefully of the merits of her son and the brilliant career on which he had entered.
In her behavior to her mother Natasha seemed rough, but she was so sensitive and tactful that however she clasped her mother she always managed to do it without hurting her or making her feel uncomfortable or displeased.
He was not always old.
Berg, closely buttoned up in his new uniform, sat beside his wife explaining to her that one always could and should be acquainted with people above one, because only then does one get satisfaction from acquaintances.
Everything was similar: the ladies' subtle talk, the cards, the general raising his voice at the card table, and the samovar and the tea cakes; only one thing was lacking that he had always seen at the evening parties he wished to imitate.
I am always afraid when I'm with him.
I always thought it....
In the house that poetic dullness and quiet reigned which always accompanies the presence of a betrothed couple.
He seldom laughed, but when he did he abandoned himself entirely to his laughter, and after such a laugh she always felt nearer to him.
It always seemed to him that there was something not quite right about this intended marriage.

(She always ended with these words.)
The old count had always kept up an enormous hunting establishment.
She was followed by Petya who always kept close to her, by Michael, a huntsman, and by a groom appointed to look after her.

We might always drive about together!
I can always sacrifice my feelings for my family's welfare," he said to himself, "but I can't coerce my feelings.
"You always find something to do, but I can't," said Natasha.
After tea, Nicholas, Sonya, and Natasha went to the sitting room, to their favorite corner where their most intimate talks always began.
Sonya, as always, did not quite keep pace with them, though they shared the same reminiscences.
"That is metempsychosis," said Sonya, who had always learned well, and remembered everything.
The soul is immortal--well then, if I shall always live I must have lived before, lived for a whole eternity.
It is now today, and it will be tomorrow, and always; and there was yesterday, and the day before...
She was only a couple of paces away when she saw him, and to her too he was not the Nicholas she had known and always slightly feared.

Moscow society, from the old women down to the children, received Pierre like a long-expected guest whose place was always ready awaiting him.
His purse was always empty because it was open to everyone.
I have tried, and have always found that they too in the depths of their souls understand it as I do, and only try not to see it.
But what distressed the princess most of all was her father's irritability, which was always directed against her and had of late amounted to cruelty.
Prince Nicholas had always ridiculed medicine, but latterly on Mademoiselle Bourienne's advice had allowed this doctor to visit him and had grown accustomed to him.
On that day I always go to pay my devotions to the relics of Prince Nicholas Bolkonski.
Incidents were related evidently confirming the opinion that everything was going from bad to worse, but whether telling a story or giving an opinion the speaker always stopped, or was stopped, at the point beyond which his criticism might touch the sovereign himself.

Nowadays they are always writing! and he laughed unnaturally.
Her dresses were always of the latest fashion.
"I can always arrange so as not to see her often," thought Boris.
On ordinary days, after dressing, she received petitioners of various classes, of whom there were always some.
Next morning Marya Dmitrievna took the young ladies to the Iberian shrine of the Mother of God and to Madame Suppert-Roguet, who was so afraid of Marya Dmitrievna that she always let her have costumes at a loss merely to get rid of her.
But looking into his eyes she was frightened, realizing that there was not that barrier of modesty she had always felt between herself and other men.
Natasha kept turning to Helene and to her father, as if asking what it all meant, but Helene was engaged in conversation with a general and did not answer her look, and her father's eyes said nothing but what they always said: Having a good time?
Anatole was always content with his position, with himself, and with others.
He was convinced that, as a duck is so made that it must live in water, so God had made him such that he must spend thirty thousand rubles a year and always occupy a prominent position in society.
But with "his gentlemen" he always drove himself and never demanded anything for his work.
The gentlemen always made him sit down.
For the same reason they are always hard at work and in a hurry.
Balashev knew how to reply to each of Napoleon's remarks, and would have done so; he continually made the gesture of a man wishing to say something, but Napoleon always interrupted him.
"But a large number of monasteries and churches is always a sign of the backwardness of a people," said Napoleon, turning to Caulaincourt for appreciation of this remark.
Armfeldt virulently hated Napoleon and was a general full of self-confidence, a quality that always influenced Alexander.
The second party was directly opposed to the first; one extreme, as always happens, was met by representatives of the other.
"Be he what he may" (they always began like that), "he is an honest, practical man and we have nobody better.
Since the campaigns of Austerlitz and of 1807 Rostov knew by experience that men always lie when describing military exploits, as he himself had done when recounting them; besides that, he had experience enough to know that nothing happens in war at all as we can imagine or relate it.
That curly grass which always grows by country roadsides became clearly visible, still wet with the night's rain; the drooping branches of the birches, also wet, swayed in the wind and flung down bright drops of water to one side.
Rostov, always closely followed by Ilyin, rode along the side of the road between two rows of birch trees.
Doctors came to see her singly and in consultation, talked much in French, German, and Latin, blamed one another, and prescribed a great variety of medicines for all the diseases known to them, but the simple idea never occurred to any of them that they could not know the disease Natasha was suffering from, as no disease suffered by a live man can be known, for every living person has his own peculiarities and always has his own peculiar, personal, novel, complicated disease, unknown to medicine--not a disease of the lungs, liver, skin, heart, nerves, and so on mentioned in medical books, but a disease consisting of one of the innumerable combinations of the maladies of those organs.
The symptoms of Natasha's illness were that she ate little, slept little, coughed, and was always low-spirited.
But she was always imagining that.
It always seemed to her that everyone who looked at her was thinking only of what had happened to her.
With a sinking heart, wretched as she always was now when she found herself in a crowd, Natasha in her lilac silk dress trimmed with black lace walked- -as women can walk--with the more repose and stateliness the greater the pain and shame in her soul.
She included among her enemies the creditors and all who had business dealings with her father, and always at the thought of enemies and those who hated her she remembered Anatole who had done her so much harm--and though he did not hate her she gladly prayed for him as for an enemy.
Pierre, from club habit, always left both hat and stick in the anteroom.
Will he not always have a bitter feeling toward me?
"There he is, always losing everything!" remarked the countess.
Petya decided to go straight to where the Emperor was and to explain frankly to some gentleman-in-waiting (he imagined the Emperor to be always surrounded by gentlemen-in-waiting) that he, Count Rostov, in spite of his youth wished to serve his country; that youth could be no hindrance to loyalty, and that he was ready to...
"To see the Governor by his excellency's order," answered Alpatych, lifting his head and proudly thrusting his hand into the bosom of his coat as he always did when he mentioned the prince....
He is said to be more Napoleon's man than ours, and he is always advising the Minister.
The doctor said this restlessness did not mean anything and was due to physical causes; but Princess Mary thought he wished to tell her something, and the fact that her presence always increased his restlessness confirmed her opinion.
"Dronushka," she said, regarding as a sure friend this Dronushka who always used to bring a special kind of gingerbread from his visit to the fair at Vyazma every year and smilingly offer it to her, "Dronushka, now since our misfortune..." she began, but could not go on.
Advisers are always plentiful, but men are not.
I know you were friendly with Natalie, and so... but I was always more friendly with Vera--that dear Vera.
I have always said so and I am beginning to experience it.
But contrary to what had always happened in their former battles, instead of the news they expected of the enemy's flight, these orderly masses returned thence as disorganized and terrified mobs.
Napoleon was experiencing a feeling of depression like that of an ever- lucky gambler who, after recklessly flinging money about and always winning, suddenly just when he has calculated all the chances of the game, finds that the more he considers his play the more surely he loses.
"On the contrary, your Highness, in indecisive actions it is always the most stubborn who remain victors," replied Raevski, "and in my opinion..."
It is merely necessary to select some larger or smaller unit as the subject of observation--as criticism has every right to do, seeing that whatever unit history observes must always be arbitrarily selected.
People accustomed to think in that way forget, or do not know, the inevitable conditions which always limit the activities of any commander in chief.
A commander-in-chief is never dealing with the beginning of any event--the position from which we always contemplate it.
But a commander in chief, especially at a difficult moment, has always before him not one proposal but dozens simultaneously.
Moving troops in close proximity to an enemy is always dangerous, and military history supports that view.
When he had dismissed the generals Kutuzov sat a long time with his elbows on the table, thinking always of the same terrible question: When, when did the abandonment of Moscow become inevitable?
And as it always happens in contests of cunning that a stupid person gets the better of cleverer ones, Helene--having realized that the main object of all these words and all this trouble was, after converting her to Catholicism, to obtain money from her for Jesuit institutions (as to which she received indications)-before parting with her money insisted that the various operations necessary to free her from her husband should be performed.
"Listen, Bilibin," said Helene (she always called friends of that sort by their surnames), and she touched his coat sleeve with her white, beringed fingers.
Though Petya would remain in the service, this transfer would give the countess the consolation of seeing at least one of her sons under her wing, and she hoped to arrange matters for her Petya so as not to let him go again, but always get him appointed to places where he could not possibly take part in a battle.
Though she concealed from him her intention of keeping him under her wing, Petya guessed her designs, and instinctively fearing that he might give way to emotion when with her--might "become womanish" as he termed it to himself--he treated her coldly, avoided her, and during his stay in Moscow attached himself exclusively to Natasha for whom he had always had a particularly brotherly tenderness, almost lover-like.
The countess watched the things being packed, was dissatisfied with everything, was constantly in pursuit of Petya who was always running away from her, and was jealous of Natasha with whom he spent all his time.
"I was never pleased at Bolkonski's engagement to Natasha," said the countess, "but I always wanted Nicholas to marry the princess, and had a presentiment that it would happen.
Above all, they were gay because there was a war near Moscow, there would be fighting at the town gates, arms were being given out, everybody was escaping--going away somewhere, and in general something extraordinary was happening, and that is always exciting, especially to the young.
The count spoke timidly, as he always did when talking of money matters.
She was accustomed always to oppose anything announced in that timid tone and considered it her duty to do so.
"They always will forget everything!" said the countess.
Gerasim looked cautiously into the study several times and saw Pierre always sitting in the same attitude.
However, I know their presence will inspire me, and I shall speak to them as I always do: clearly, impressively, and majestically.
The sleeve of his coat kept slipping down and he always carefully rolled it up again with his left hand, as if it were most important that the sinewy white arm he was flourishing should be bare.
Rostopchin, though he had patriotic sentiments, was a sanguine and impulsive man who had always moved in the highest administrative circles and had no understanding at all of the people he supposed himself to be guiding.
To a man not swayed by passion that welfare is never certain, but he who commits such a crime always knows just where that welfare lies.
Pierre's physical condition, as is always the case, corresponded to his mental state.
While Pierre, standing in the middle of the room, was talking to himself in this way, the study door opened and on the threshold appeared the figure of Makar Alexeevich, always so timid before but now quite transformed.
She passed the valet, the snuff fell from the candle wick, and she saw Prince Andrew clearly with his arms outside the quilt, and such as she had always seen him.
"But perhaps that's my shirt on the table," he thought, "and that's my legs, and that is the door, but why is it always stretching and drawing itself out, and 'piti-piti-piti' and 'ti-ti' and 'piti-piti-piti'...?
This reading, as was always the case at Anna Pavlovna's soirees, had a political significance.
I always said he was the only man capable of defeating Napoleon.
"Colonel, I always require it," replied the Emperor.
This was Malvintseva, Princess Mary's aunt on her mother's side, a rich, childless widow who always lived in Voronezh.
There is always a right way of doing things, replied the governor's wife.
Reveries about Sonya had had something merry and playful in them, but to dream of Princess Mary was always difficult and a little frightening.
But we are always judging, 'that's not well--that's not right!'
He was always busy, and only at night allowed himself conversation--of which he was fond--and songs.
He did not sing like a trained singer who knows he is listened to, but like the birds, evidently giving vent to the sounds in the same way that one stretches oneself or walks about to get rid of stiffness, and the sounds were always high-pitched, mournful, delicate, and almost feminine, and his face at such times was very serious.
He liked to hear the folk tales one of the soldiers used to tell of an evening (they were always the same), but most of all he liked to hear stories of real life.
It had meaning only as part of a whole of which he was always conscious.
As always happens when traveling, Princess Mary thought only of the journey itself, forgetting its object.
He is always talking about you!
To love everything and everybody and always to sacrifice oneself for love meant not to love anyone, not to live this earthly life.
Since she had begun looking after him, he had always experienced this physical consciousness of her nearness.
At the Troitsa monastery they had spoken of the past, and he had told her that if he lived he would always thank God for his wound which had brought them together again, but after that they never spoke of the future.
Kutuzov only replied that movements arranged from a distance were always difficult to execute.
The war went on independently of them, as it had to go: that is, never in the way people devised, but flowing always from the essential attitude of the masses.
Meantime, according to the dispositions which said that "the First Column will march" and so on, the infantry of the belated columns, commanded by Bennigsen and directed by Toll, had started in due order and, as always happens, had got somewhere, but not to their appointed places.
As always happens the men, starting cheerfully, began to halt; murmurs were heard, there was a sense of confusion, and finally a backward movement.
"The word attack is always on your tongue, but you don't see that we are unable to execute complicated maneuvers," said he to Miloradovich who asked permission to advance.
This little dog lived in their shed, sleeping beside Karataev at night; it sometimes made excursions into the town but always returned again.
And the corporal leaned against the door and offered Pierre his pipe, though whenever he offered it Pierre always declined it.
You damned rascal, where do you always hide it? said the voice of the man who was stretching himself, to the orderly.
Like Dokhturov he had the reputation of being a man of very limited capacity and information, and like Dokhturov he never made plans of battle but was always found where the situation was most difficult.
Since his appointment as general on duty he had always slept with his door open, giving orders that every messenger should be allowed to wake him up.
In battle he was always under fire, so that Kutuzov reproved him for it and feared to send him to the front, and like Dokhturov he was one of those unnoticed cogwheels that, without clatter or noise, constitute the most essential part of the machine.
A man in motion always devises an aim for that motion.
And the impulses felt by a single person are always magnified in a crowd.
Each of them desired nothing more than to give himself up as a prisoner to escape from all this horror and misery; but on the one hand the force of this common attraction to Smolensk, their goal, drew each of them in the same direction; on the other hand an army corps could not surrender to a company, and though the French availed themselves of every convenient opportunity to detach themselves and to surrender on the slightest decent pretext, such pretexts did not always occur.
Such action always occurs in wars that take on a national character.
Guerrilla war (always successful, as history shows) directly infringes that rule.
* Large battalions are always victorious.
Men who want to fight will always put themselves in the most advantageous conditions for fighting.
Its first period had passed: when the partisans themselves, amazed at their own boldness, feared every minute to be surrounded and captured by the French, and hid in the forests without unsaddling, hardly daring to dismount and always expecting to be pursued.
At night he would go out for booty and always brought back French clothing and weapons, and when told to would bring in French captives also.
Tikhon did not like riding, and always went on foot, never lagging behind the cavalry.
He was highly delighted with what he saw and experienced in the army, but at the same time it always seemed to him that the really heroic exploits were being performed just where he did not happen to be.
And he was always in a hurry to get where he was not.
(The horseflesh was appetizing and nourishing, the saltpeter flavor of the gunpowder they used instead of salt was even pleasant; there was no great cold, it was always warm walking in the daytime, and at night there were the campfires; the lice that devoured him warmed his body.)
Karataev had told it to him alone some half-dozen times and always with a specially joyful emotion.
"I agreed," Natasha now said to herself, "that it would be dreadful if he always continued to suffer.
Kutuzov never talked of "forty centuries looking down from the Pyramids," of the sacrifices he offered for the fatherland, or of what he intended to accomplish or had accomplished; in general he said nothing about himself, adopted no pose, always appeared to be the simplest and most ordinary of men, and said the simplest and most ordinary things.
To that question, "What for?" a simple answer was now always ready in his soul: "Because there is a God, that God without whose will not one hair falls from a man's head."
Pierre remembered that the princess always had lady companions, but who they were and what they were like he never knew or remembered.
With all his soul he had always sought one thing--to be perfectly good--so he could not be afraid of death.
When two people quarrel they are always both in fault, and one's own guilt suddenly becomes terribly serious when the other is no longer alive.
The invaders flee, turn back, flee again, and all the chances are now not for Napoleon but always against him.
Count Ilya Rostov died that same year and, as always happens, after the father's death the family group broke up.
As always happens in such cases rivalry sprang up as to which should get paid first, and those who like Mitenka held promissory notes given them as presents now became the most exacting of the creditors.
She is a very admirable young woman and you always liked her, but now suddenly you have got some notion or other in your head.
As I understand your present life, I think you will always recall it with satisfaction, because the self-sacrifice that fills it now...
He always had before his mind's eye the estate as a whole and not any particular part of it.
When a decision had to be taken regarding a domestic serf, especially if one had to be punished, he always felt undecided and consulted everybody in the house; but when it was possible to have a domestic serf conscripted instead of a land worker he did so without the least hesitation.
The looks of the plain Countess Mary always improved when she was in tears.
She never cried from pain or vexation, but always from sorrow or pity, and when she wept her radiant eyes acquired an irresistible charm.
"I give you my word of honor it shan't occur again, and let this always be a reminder to me," and he pointed to the broken ring.
She waited on the old countess, petted and spoiled the children, was always ready to render the small services for which she had a gift, and all this was unconsciously accepted from her with insufficient gratitude.
You always have such strange fancies!
"That's always the way," thought Countess Mary.
Sonya was always the first excuse Countess Mary found for feeling irritated.
It always seems to me...
On reading that letter (she always read her husband's letters) Natasha herself suggested that he should go to Petersburg, though she would feel his absence very acutely.
In Pierre's presence his face always shone with pleasure and he flushed and was breathless when Pierre spoke to him.
The guests welcomed Pierre because he always helped to enliven and unite any company he was in.
When Pierre and his wife entered the drawing room the countess was in one of her customary states in which she needed the mental exertion of playing patience, and so--though by force of habit she greeted him with the words she always used when Pierre or her son returned after an absence: High time, my dear, high time!
"Thank you, my dear, you have cheered me up," said she as she always did.
Once or twice Pierre was carried away and began to speak of these things, but Nicholas and Natasha always brought him back to the health of Prince Ivan and Countess Mary Alexeevna.
It is always the first thing that tells me all is well.
This meant two stockings, which by a secret process known only to herself Anna Makarovna used to knit at the same time on the same needles, and which, when they were ready, she always triumphantly drew, one out of the other, in the children's presence.
"Always the same thing," said Pierre, looking round at his listeners.
"Always some fantastic schemes," said Nicholas.
Everything is strained to such a degree that it will certainly break, said Pierre (as those who examine the actions of any government have always said since governments began).
A fine lad, a fine lad! repeated Nicholas, who at heart was not fond of Nicholas Bolkonski but was always anxious to recognize that he was a fine lad.
"Yes, Pierre always was a dreamer and always will be," he continued, returning to the talk in the study which had evidently disturbed him.
Countess Mary's soul always strove toward the infinite, the eternal, and the absolute, and could therefore never be at peace.
What will become of us if she dies, as I always fear when her face is like that? thought he, and placing himself before the icon he began to say his evening prayers.
And it was always my fault.
"Always about the same thing," said Pierre with a smile.
I only wished to say that ideas that have great results are always simple ones.
Whatever happens and whoever may stand at the head of affairs, the theory can always say that such and such a person took the lead because the collective will was transferred to him.
Experience shows us that whatever event occurs it is always related to the will of one or of several men who have decreed it.
No command ever appears spontaneously, or itself covers a whole series of occurrences; but each command follows from another, and never refers to a whole series of events but always to one moment only of an event.
Every order executed is always one of an immense number unexecuted.
For common action people always unite in certain combinations, in which regardless of the difference of the aims set for the common action, the relation between those taking part in it is always the same.
Men uniting in these combinations always assume such relations toward one another that the larger number take a more direct share, and the smaller number a less direct share, in the collective action for which they have combined.
Every army is composed of lower grades of the service--the rank and file--of whom there are always the greatest number; of the next higher military rank--corporals and noncommissioned officers of whom there are fewer, and of still-higher officers of whom there are still fewer, and so on to the highest military command which is concentrated in one person.
The soldier himself does the stabbing, hacking, burning, and pillaging, and always receives orders for these actions from men above him; he himself never gives an order.
When a man works alone he always has a certain set of reflections which as it seems to him directed his past activity, justify his present activity, and guide him in planning his future actions.
In whatever direction a ship moves, the flow of the waves it cuts will always be noticeable ahead of it.
But wherever it may turn there always will be the wave anticipating its movement.
Whatever happens it always appears that just that event was foreseen and decreed.
Having learned from experiment and argument that a stone falls downwards, a man indubitably believes this and always expects the law that he has learned to be fulfilled.
Whatever presentation of the activity of many men or of an individual we may consider, we always regard it as the result partly of man's free will and partly of the law of inevitability.
The proportion of freedom to inevitability decreases and increases according to the point of view from which the action is regarded, but their relation is always one of inverse proportion.
She smiled to herself - and not always because he rubbed her the wrong way.
You're always the last one to get anything new.
He always looked nice, but normally he would have worn a suit for the occasion.
As always, he had been there when she needed him.
Felipa didn't seem to notice anything unusual in his attitude, so maybe he had always treated them that way.
Besides, after he inherited, he could always put someone in charge of the estate.
But then, Alex had always been fluent in pretty talk.
He's always been so alert and in control.
He always wanted to be a veterinarian.
Maybe it would always be there, but hopefully it would fade.
"It is always Alex," Dulce continued in a bitter voice.
I guess I always knew he was secretive - even you to some degree.
I always thought that was funny.
I always wondered if that was why Mom and Dad split up for a while - because Mom was used to a different lifestyle and social circle.
Mom always had a good relationship with her sister and brother.
Carmen had always looked forward to evening when Alex returned from work, but she was doubly relieved for the evening hours now.
Alex always said she had a good imagination.
Probably because he didn't know how to handle the situation - and Alex always wanted to be in control.
He walked up and down the river bank, leading his horse behind him; but he kept his eyes turned always toward the dim, dark spot which he knew was the old North Church.
He was always reading, learning, inquiring.
It tried three times, four times, a dozen times, twenty times--but always with the same result.
"They say that King Henry always has a number of men with him," said the boy; "how shall I know which is he?"
I find they almost always answer.
You can be a subsistence farmer and perhaps produce some excess, but given the prior observation about the fundamental volatility of farming, you will always be at risk of not producing enough.
People will always try to get other people to do what they want them to.
In Othello is a character named Iago, an evil man who never does anything illegal himself but is always planting ideas in other people's minds, to get them to do his dirty work.
I knew my own mind well enough and always had my own way, even if I had to fight tooth and nail for it.
But about this time I had an experience which taught me that nature is not always kind.
I saw him many times after that, and he was always a good friend to me; indeed, I was thinking of him when I called Boston "the City of Kind Hearts."
In places the wild muscadine and scuppernong vines stretched from tree to tree, making arbours which were always full of butterflies and buzzing insects.
I am always happy and so was Little Lord Fauntleroy, but dear Little Jakey's life was full of sadness.
We commonly do not remember that it is, after all, always the first person that is speaking.
You will export such articles as the country affords, purely native products, much ice and pine timber and a little granite, always in native bottoms.
What mean ye by saying that the poor ye have always with you, or that the fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?
To meet the objections of some inveterate cavillers, I may as well state, that if I dined out occasionally, as I always had done, and I trust shall have opportunities to do again, it was frequently to the detriment of my domestic arrangements.
All that I could say, then, with respect to farming on a large scale--I have always cultivated a garden--was, that I had had my seeds ready.
What should we think of the shepherd's life if his flocks always wandered to higher pastures than his thoughts?
If we were always, indeed, getting our living, and regulating our lives according to the last and best mode we had learned, we should never be troubled with ennui.
You can always see a face in the fire.
But the rich man--not to make any invidious comparison--is always sold to the institution which makes him rich.
Prussia has always declared that Buonaparte is invincible, and that all Europe is powerless before him....
"Soyez tranquille, Lise, you will always be prettier than anyone else," replied Anna Pavlovna.
His eyes, nose, and mouth all seemed puckered into a vacant, wearied grimace, and his arms and legs always fell into unnatural positions.
Dolokhov could play all games and nearly always won.
And as he waved his arms to impersonate the policeman, his portly form again shook with a deep ringing laugh, the laugh of one who always eats well and, in particular, drinks well.
"They're always in love with someone," he thought of Sonya and Natasha.
"Yes, always first both on the grassland and here," answered Rostov, stroking his heated Donets horse.
"On the contrary, things seem satisfactory, ma cousine," said Pierre in the bantering tone he habitually adopted toward her, always feeling uncomfortable in the role of her benefactor.
It always comes down to this, doesn't it?
Mom always said lost time couldn't be replaced.
Has your mother always taken care of Tammy?
Was she always misinterpreting his intent, or was he merely quick-witted enough to think of a good excuse on the spur of the moment?
Please think of me always as your loving little sister, HELEN KELLER.
One fair-haired young soldier of the third company, whom Prince Andrew knew and who had a strap round the calf of one leg, crossed himself, stepped back to get a good run, and plunged into the water; another, a dark noncommissioned officer who was always shaggy, stood up to his waist in the water joyfully wriggling his muscular figure and snorted with satisfaction as he poured the water over his head with hands blackened to the wrists.
"What year did you enter the service?" he asked with that affectation of military bluntness and geniality with which he always addressed the soldiers.
The salesperson offers, "I find that my customers who buy this suit almost always get wingtips."
The problem for us was always that it is easier to get a car running than it is to fix the brakes.
Riding past the pond where there used always to be dozens of women chattering as they rinsed their linen or beat it with wooden beetles, Prince Andrew noticed that there was not a soul about and that the little washing wharf, torn from its place and half submerged, was floating on its side in the middle of the pond.
How did he always manage to do that?
But don't let us worry over such things, Zeb; we can't help ourselves just now, you know, and I've always been told it's foolish to borrow trouble.
Actually, it was how my family always celebrated Christmas.
Even today, the scientific method involves experimentation that almost always necessitates some amount of data collection.
The dust always hung motionless above the buzz of talk that came from the resting troops.
"Prince," said Berg, recognizing Prince Andrew, "I only spoke because I have to obey orders, because I always do obey exactly....
Just remember, I'll always be there – whenever you need me.
Solitude had always been her friend.
