Her expression became thoughtful.
Alex stared at her, his expression sour.
In reading my teacher's lips I was wholly dependent on my fingers: I had to use the sense of touch in catching the vibrations of the throat, the movements of the mouth and the expression of the face; and often this sense was at fault.
Standing on the smooth sandy beach at the east end of the pond, in a calm September afternoon, when a slight haze makes the opposite shore-line indistinct, I have seen whence came the expression, "the glassy surface of a lake."
For a moment he looked down at her, his expression somber.
Instead of reading words on a page and trying to imagine a concept, we can see it, as the old expression goes, in Technicolor.
She hesitated, her expression pensive.
Everything about him, from his weary, bored expression to his quiet, measured step, offered a most striking contrast to his quiet, little wife.
The hostility in his voice and expression was unnerving.
She just came to say, with a worried expression, "Girl--not count very large (many) words."
The best works of art are the expression of man's struggle to free himself from this condition, but the effect of our art is merely to make this low state comfortable and that higher state to be forgotten.
"Why, this is a palace!" she said to her husband, looking around with the expression with which people compliment their host at a ball.
For a moment he gazed down at her, his expression much like the trapped fox in the hen house.
There was not an ugly person in all the throng.
Aside from his solemn expression, there was nothing in the way he acted with the children that might indicate anything was wrong between them.
His expression was a blend of question and concern.
His expression was wary, but he said nothing.
He watched her while she wiped her hands, his expression unreadable.
As he absorbed her words, his expression went from tense to relieved, and then on to something sweet and sad.
He nodded, his expression reflective again.
An unidentifiable expression lurked in his dark features as he nodded.
His expression was perplexed.
The retired naval man was speaking very boldly, as was evident from the expression on the faces of the listeners and from the fact that some people Pierre knew as the meekest and quietest of men walked away disapprovingly or expressed disagreement with him.
Pierre, however, felt excited, and the general desire to show that they were ready to go to all lengths--which found expression in the tones and looks more than in the substance of the speeches--infected him too.
This question suddenly presented itself to her, and in answer she saw him before her with the expression that was on his face as he lay in his coffin with his chin bound up with a white handkerchief.
He nodded, his expression drifting to uncertain.
Alex glanced up at him and then his expression turned sour.
Señor Medena watched him for a moment, his expression guarded.
His gaze shifted to his mother and his expression softened.
The ancient cannon, which look seaward, wear a very menacing expression; but I doubt if there is any unkindness in their rusty old hearts.
Every shade of feeling finds expression through her mobile features.
"Can anyone find an example of an idiom, or fun expression, to share with the class?" asked the teacher.
With a sudden expression of malevolence on his aged face, Adraksin shouted at Pierre:
All she could see was that his former stern and determined expression had altered to one of timidity and submission.
She recalled all her life with him and in every word and act of his found an expression of his love of her.
"Call Andrew!" he said suddenly, and a childish, timid expression of doubt showed itself on his face as he spoke.
He was still lying on the bed as before, but the stern expression of his quiet face made Princess Mary stop short on the threshold.
She could not fathom whether it was curiosity, devotion, gratitude, or apprehension and distrust--but the expression on all the faces was identical.
And again all the faces in that crowd bore an identical expression, though now it was certainly not an expression of curiosity or gratitude, but of angry resolve.
What gentleness and nobility there are in her features and expression! thought he as he looked at her and listened to her timid story.
But the princess, if she did not again thank him in words, thanked him with the whole expression of her face, radiant with gratitude and tenderness.
On the rest of the way to Moscow, though the princess' position was not a cheerful one, Dunyasha, who went with her in the carriage, more than once noticed that her mistress leaned out of the window and smiled at something with an expression of mingled joy and sorrow.
