"But no, it can't be!" he thought.
I just can't believe this.
I can't remember the name of it, but I think I would have remembered North Street.
You can't imagine how I've missed the country.
We can't make her understand.
What's the point of living to a ripe old age if you can't enjoy yourself?
I can't have one.
I can't believe you thought I was going to marry her.
I can't make the decision for you.
"I can't help it," said the prince.
I can't go back.
It is very sound: one can't permit the land to be pillaged and accustom the troops to marauding.
(Of course, I can't go buy a thousand cans for $2,000 and have them worth $10,000 to me.
You can't do something that long and not have some strong opinions on the matter.
"You can't carry me all the way to the house," She said, clinging to his neck.
I can't imagine what he was thinking to hide a thing like that from you.
I just want to do my part, and I can't if I don't have all the facts.
I just can't figure her.
Yes. I just can't stand sitting around.
I can't imagine why he didn't tell us his friend was a pretty girl.
He's at home with Jonathan and he can't come in because Destiny might catch what he has.
I can't believe she would want you to sacrifice...
He's at home with Jonathan and he can't come in because Destiny might catch what he has.
I hurt my ankle and I can't walk on it.
She can't make up her mind whether you're having an affair with me or hiding something.
We can't keep falling forever, you know.
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.
"Can't you mend them?" she enquired.
You can't have everything.
He can't see at all!
Is it true, as they tell me, that I can't even go away?
I can't imagine why you chose Allen instead.
"Those were the first words I ever said," called out the horse, who had overheard them, "and I can't explain why I happened to speak then.
Oh, Dorothy--you can't imagine what horrid things they are!
"Then we're all right," said the girl, "for if the dragon went the other way she can't poss'bly get to us now."
I can't believe that the colour-impressions she received during the year and a half she could see and hear are entirely lost.
It can't be an attack, for they are not moving; it can't be a square--for they are not drawn up for that.
They can't hold all that line.
No, I can't describe it, she had said, flushed and excited.
Besides, if you buy a cheap one, you get discouraged when you can't get the quality of music that you want.
You can't avoid conflict all the time.
I just can't believe it.
You can't spend your life terrified to leave the house alone.
I can't promise you we'll never fight, or that I'll never take a drink.
"But Uncle Henry and Aunt Em need me to help them," she added, "so I can't ever be very long away from the farm in Kansas."
But in a world without scarcity, socialism can't even exist.
In any case, as the song says, The times, they are a-changin'—and they are changing in a manner that governments probably can't keep up with.
It was a rhetorical question and, to those posing it, simply a wish—just another way to say, "Why can't we all just get along?"
More and more of the things we have, we "can't live without."
When they can't, they are deposed.
Can't you hurry up?
I can't tell you, sir.
No, it can't be! she thought.
We shall if everybody wants it; it can't be helped....
All right, one can't talk--how tiresome!
Not being a military man I can't say I have understood it fully, but I understand the general position.
But I can't help it.
Well, he has a home office and he goes there pretty often, but I can't figure out what he's doing.
That's why he can't leave that ranch.
"The Country of the Gurgles can't be far from the top of the earth," remarked Dorothy.
"I simply can't describe 'em," answered the kitten, shuddering.
I can't think of anything offline to compare it to.
I can't tell you which clips will be watched in a century, but I'm certain that some will be.
I can't really remember what won, though at the time, I thought it all very forward looking and exciting.
With more than thirty thousand genes in your body, you can't expect them all to have cool names.
Can't get it yet.
Windows that can't be broken and can switch from opaque to clear.
The farmer replies, "You can't get there from here."
It was the basis for the movie War Games in which the military's computer finally figures out it can't win in a nuclear launch scenario and says of such a war, Strange game.
She learns because she can't help it, just as the bird learns to fly.
One can't everywhere say all one thinks, mon cher.
I can't understand why he wants to go to the war, replied Pierre, addressing the princess with none of the embarrassment so commonly shown by young men in their intercourse with young women.
I don't understand it; I don't in the least understand why men can't live without wars.
"I still can't understand what you are afraid of," said Prince Andrew slowly, not taking his eyes off his wife.
It can't be helped! said the count, shrugging his shoulders and speaking playfully of a matter that evidently distressed him.
I can't think why his nieces put it off.
"Nicholas is going away in a week's time, his... papers... have come... he told me himself... but still I should not cry," and she showed a paper she held in her hand--with the verses Nicholas had written, "still, I should not cry, but you can't... no one can understand... what a soul he has!"
But Nicholas is my cousin... one would have to... the Metropolitan himself... and even then it can't be done.
Last winter she wheedled herself in here and told the count such vile, disgraceful things about us, especially about Sophie--I can't repeat them--that it made the count quite ill and he would not see us for a whole fortnight.
I can't bear the sight of that woman.
I don't want any other life, and can't, for I know no other.
"No, it can't be helped, lad," said the prince.
They're all like that; one can't unmarry.
It's in the Emperor's service... it can't be helped... one is sometimes a bit hasty on parade...
No one shall hear a word from me," said Rostov in an imploring voice, "but I can't apologize, by God I can't, do what you will!
I can't describe the feeling.
"The squadwon can't pass," shouted Vaska Denisov, showing his white teeth fiercely and spurring his black thoroughbred Arab, which twitched its ears as the bayonets touched it, and snorted, spurting white foam from his bit, tramping the planks of the bridge with his hoofs, and apparently ready to jump over the railings had his rider let him.
I confess I do not understand: perhaps there are diplomatic subtleties here beyond my feeble intelligence, but I can't make it out.
You see that your victory is not a matter for great rejoicing and that you can't be received as a savior.
"I should like to speak well of them, but as far as I know the facts, I can't," replied Bolkonski, smiling.
He has a passion for giving audiences, but he does not like talking himself and can't do it, as you will see.
"I can't make out at all," said Nesvitski.
"One can't write so fast, your honor," said the clerk, glancing angrily and disrespectfully at Kozlovski.
We can't stop those fellows, said the staff officer pointing to the soldiers.
Another, a younger voice, interrupted him: "Afraid or not, you can't escape it anyhow."
"Once again, Colonel," said the general, "I can't leave half my men in the wood.
They can't have wanted to kill me.
"One was damaged," answered the staff officer, "and the other I can't understand.
I can't bear those old men!
Even if I like him I can't now be myself with him.
"Well, do you think I shall prevent her, that I can't part from her?" said the old prince angrily.
I can't tell you.
Can't you do it more gently? said the Emperor apparently suffering more than the dying soldier, and he rode away.
"Well then," Prince Andrew answered himself, "I don't know what will happen and don't want to know, and can't, but if I want this--want glory, want to be known to men, want to be loved by them, it is not my fault that I want it and want nothing but that and live only for that.
"They can't be far off, probably just beyond the stream," he said to the hussar beside him.
No, one can't hear them.
It will soon be over, it can't be that, it can't be!
"It can't be!" said Rostov.
"But it can't be he, alone in the midst of this empty field!" thought Rostov.
Yes, it can't be helped if they won't take less.
We can't get them from anyone else.
I have no right to, and can't, believe it.
Can't I go away from here, run away, bury myself somewhere? passed through his mind.
You can't! said a terrified voice from within.
The knave, double or quits... it can't be!...
He can't want my ruin.
No, it can't be!
"Ah, it can't be avoided!" thought Nicholas, for the first and last time.
"It can't be helped It happens to everyone!" said the son, with a bold, free, and easy tone, while in his soul he regarded himself as a worthless scoundrel whose whole life could not atone for his crime.
I can't make out what the commander at Korchevo--a certain Khandrikov--is up to; till now the additional men and provisions have not arrived.
I can't tell you how much I have lived through since then.
You can't help thinking.
I go to bed after two in the morning, thoughts come and I can't sleep but toss about till dawn, because I think and can't help thinking, just as he can't help plowing and mowing; if he didn't, he would go to the drink shop or fall ill.
It can't be so.
You say you can't see a reign of goodness and truth on earth.
After all, can't let our men starve.
"I can't tear myself to pieces," the doctor was saying.
I won't, I can't sleep, what's the use?
"You go to sleep, but I can't," said the first voice, coming nearer to the window.
"My dear," Princess Mary entering at such a moment would say, "little Nicholas can't go out today, it's very cold."
Mon cher, even in this case you can't do without Michael Mikhaylovich Speranski.
You know you can't marry him.
I can't do it like that, said the maid who was holding Natasha's hair.
I can't bear him.
"It can't be helped: men must sometimes have masculine conversation," said he.
At last I live, but I can't live without her!
"And can't it be helped?" she asked.
"No, it can't be!" thought Rostov, taking a deep breath, as a man does at the coming of something long hoped for.
I can't make head or tail of it.
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.
I can't look at him... different voices were saying.
I really don't know what sort of girl she is; I can't analyze her at all.
"They can't help liking me," she thought.
I can't bear this waiting and I shall cry in a minute! and she turned away from the glass, making an effort not to cry.
Well, that can't happen twice!
Only so could I be completely happy; but now I have to choose, and I can't be happy without either of them.
But it can't be that she loves him!
"No, Sonya, I can't any longer!" she said.
I can't hide it from you any longer.
"But I can't believe it," insisted Sonya.
You can't understand it....
I can't leave it like this.
"But I can't live without him!" cried Natasha.
I can't make it out.
Well, Papa, I tell you definitely, and Mamma too, it's as you please, but I say definitely that you must let me enter the army, because I can't... that's all....
No, I can't petition him myself--that would be too bold.
Something in my pocket--can't remember...
"But you can't have understood me," said Princess Mary with a sad smile.
The peasants are rioting, and you can't manage them?
One can't walk in the streets.
They talk about medicine--what is the good of medicine when it can't cure a cold!
One can't cure anything.
One can't help being afraid, he said laughing.
I can't send Claparede.
"Go, my dear fellow," he said to Ermolov, "and see whether something can't be done."
If they're sent out and brought back again later on it will do no harm, but as things are now one can't answer for anything.
"You can't, Miss, we have tried to," said the butler's assistant.
"I can't think what the servants are about," said the countess, turning to her husband.
You can't possibly have ordered it!
Don't you know I can't sit like that?
But no, it can't be true that I am in Moscow, he suddenly thought.
'Against God's might our hands can't fight.'
"Oh well... it can't be helped!" said he in a tone of vexation and placed his hand on the gate as if to leave.
They can't understand that all those feelings they prize so--all our feelings, all those ideas that seem so important to us, are unnecessary.
They are like children from whom one can't get any sensible account of what has happened because they all want to show how well they can fight.
We can't start the affair without knowing for certain how many there are.
She said: This can't go on--it won't.
You see, brothers, I know it's hard for you, but it can't be helped!
No, it can't be, he told himself at every look, gesture, and word that filled his soul with joy.
I can't bear these ladies and all these civilities! said he aloud in Sonya's presence, evidently unable to repress his vexation, after the princess' carriage had disappeared.
I can't get a moment's peace....
Without you, or when something comes between us like this, I seem lost and can't do anything.
"Now, Nicholas," she added, turning to her husband, "I can't understand how it is you don't see the charm of these delicious marvels."
"I don't and can't," replied Nicholas, looking coldly at the baby.
"When you are here he can't tear himself away," she said.
I can't bear it!
No, but I can't sit on the fence forever - and I do want another baby.
We can't - not right now.
I guess I can't deny that, but in all these years, why hasn't Uncle Fabrice's name come up in a conversation at least once?
They can't keep her temperature down.
If it's something we simply can't afford, that's one thing, but we should be encouraging things like this, Alex.
I can't really blame him.
I can't believe this is really happening.
When you're only going to work for the summer, you can't be too picky.
"You can't find a sitter closer to your home?" she asked skeptically.
I can't sleep well here.
I can't figure out who owns this house or who has the money.
Are you telling me I can't go for a walk?
I can't imagine how Allen knew.
Can't you simply ask his mother what he does for a living?
I can't believe that it's healthy to push them from your mind altogether.
I can't go the rest of my life avoiding birthday cakes.
It can't be any more dangerous than driving around in Tulsa.
If there's one thing he can't stand, it must be an independent female.
We can't expect them to make an exception for us.
Can't we wait 'till tomorrow?
"I can't," Mrs. Marsh sobbed, and leaned against Brandon for support.
I'm not going back and you can't make me.
I'm flattered by your offer, but I can't leave the twins.
Chauncey, you can't carry me in this heat.
I can't believe I've finally found you.
There is nothing so terrible that a few words from the Padre can't mend.
You can't imagine how sore I am.
Can't you just picture them swimming around on that pond, ducking their heads gracefully to feed.
We can't let it happen again. she stammered.
"I can't see that it's wrong," remarked Jim, in his gruff tones.
"Of course; can't you see?" and again the kitten wandered into the air and back to the edge of the roof.
And if I can't eat the piglets you may as well plant me at once and raise catsup.
"And they have no hearts; so they can't love anyone – not even themselves," declared the boy.
"Can't imagine, my dear," he replied.
Can't you see us?
"No! he can kick pretty hard with his heels, and bite a little; but Jim can't 'zactly fight," she replied.
"And mama can't tell whether my face is dirty or not!" added the other childish voice, gleefully.
"Never mind; we can't turn back," said Dorothy; "and we don't intend to stay there, anyhow."
"No you can't," remarked Jim, with a twinkle in his round eyes.
But he can't wiz a single thing if he hasn't the tools and machinery to work with.
You can't make me believe that, said the robber; and he hurried away to rob one of the rich merchants.
We also can't hammer nails with our hands, so we invented hammers.
It doesn't matter what the law or the union or their mothers think about it: They can't get a thousand dollars per flip.
They can't even put a value on it; they wouldn't sell it for a million dollars.
We can't naturally fly, so we make airplanes.
We can't remember all that we hear, so we make pens and paper.
But, in spite of all their wild efforts, neither side was scored, and we all laughed and said, "Oh, well now the pot can't call the kettle black!"...
It can't be helped!
I can't remain any longer in Petersburg.
Leading such a life I can't decide or think properly about anything.
Know this, Masha: I can't reproach, have not reproached, and never shall reproach my wife with anything, and I cannot reproach myself with anything in regard to her; and that always will be so in whatever circumstances I may be placed.
You can't come in!
No, I can't agree with you!
She is like a sister to me, and I can't tell you how it offended me... because... well, for that reason....
One can't talk about that, said Natasha.
No, that can't be!
"Ah, my dear, I can't tell you how fond I have grown of Julie latterly," she said to her son.
I can't tell you, I don't know.
Why can't you understand?
Sonya, one can't doubt him!
I know I can't prevent your doing so, but if you have a spark of conscience...
"I don't know that and don't want to," he said, not looking at Pierre and with a slight tremor of his lower jaw, "but you have used such words to me--'mean' and so on--which as a man of honor I can't allow anyone to use."
If there is any misunderstanding and discord between you and Mary, I can't blame her for it at all.
"I can't stand this any more," said Ilyin, noticing that Rostov did not relish Zdrzhinski's conversation.
I can't make it out at all.
Besides, all the same I can't study now when...
Such magnanimity and sensibility are like the magnanimity and sensibility of a lady who faints when she sees a calf being killed: she is so kindhearted that she can't look at blood, but enjoys eating the calf served up with sauce.
She can't help it, thought the princess.
I can't prove it to you.
I can't believe you're doing this to me.
But we can't live long in this cavern, that's certain.
You can't wait a moment!
One can't get on without it.
I can't draw back now!
Can't you make less noise?
But it can't be....
No, it can't be!
The Tugendbund is all vewy well for the sausage eaters, but I don't understand it and can't even pwonounce it, interposed Denisov in a loud and resolute voice.
We can't run sixty miles in an hour, so we make cars.
He can't see anything.
I can't see any of the girls running the ranch... or wanting to, for that matter.
No, you can't understand what I learned from that illiterate man--that simple fellow.
Oh, she can't be that bad.
* "You can't pass!"
"No it can't be, that would be too extraordinary," and at the very moment she thought this, the face and figure of Prince Andrew, in a fur cloak the deep collar of which covered with snow, appeared on the landing where the footman stood with the candle.
Whatever I may be, I can't live under Bonaparte's rule.
