Even the kitten gave a dreadfully shrill scream and at the same time Jim the cab-horse neighed loudly.
So the horse gave a groan, flopped its four wings all together, and flew away from the platform.
The cab-horse gave a nervous start and Zeb began to rub his eyes to make sure he was not asleep.
I'm very certain, Oz, that you gave me the best brains in the world, for I can think with them day and night, when all other brains are fast asleep.

In the finals, no one read my work over to me, and in the preliminaries I offered subjects with some of which I was in a measure familiar before my work in the Cambridge school; for at the beginning of the year I had passed examinations in English, History, French and German, which Mr. Gilman gave me from previous Harvard papers.

Your excellency, you gave him leave yourself, on the march.
Wasn't it fine when those Germans gave us lifts!
He took out a notebook, hurriedly scribbled something in pencil, tore out the leaf, gave it to Kozlovski, stepped quickly to the window, and threw himself into a chair, gazing at those in the room as if asking, "Why do they look at me?"
On seeing Rostov, Denisov screwed up his face and pointing over his shoulder with his thumb to the room where Telyanin was sitting, he frowned and gave a shudder of disgust.
When Telyanin had finished his lunch he took out of his pocket a double purse and, drawing its rings aside with his small, white, turned-up fingers, drew out a gold imperial, and lifting his eyebrows gave it to the waiter.
His hand trembled as he gave his horse into an orderly's charge, and he felt the blood rush to his heart with a thud.
Prince Andrew took out his purse and gave the soldier three gold pieces.
His fertile mind instantly suggested to him a point of view which gave him a right to despise the adjutant and the minister.
What the diplomatic matter might be he did not care, but it gave him great pleasure to prepare a circular, memorandum, or report, skillfully, pointedly, and elegantly.
Prince Andrew looked inquiringly at him and gave no reply.
The offer of a truce gave the only, and a quite unexpected, chance of saving the army.
The prince gave orders that no one should leave his post.
Prince Andrew listened attentively to Bagration's colloquies with the commanding officers and the orders he gave them and, to his surprise, found that no orders were really given, but that Prince Bagration tried to make it appear that everything done by necessity, by accident, or by the will of subordinate commanders was done, if not by his direct command, at least in accord with his intentions.
He spoke as if those bullets could not kill him, and his half-closed eyes gave still more persuasiveness to his words.

In the middle of a dull and halting conversation, Helene turned to Pierre with the beautiful bright smile that she gave to everyone.
But much as all the rest laughed, talked, and joked, much as they enjoyed their Rhine wine, saute, and ices, and however they avoided looking at the young couple, and heedless and unobservant as they seemed of them, one could feel by the occasional glances they gave that the story about Sergey Kuzmich, the laughter, and the food were all a pretense, and that the whole attention of that company was directed to-- Pierre and Helene.
Prince Vasili gave him a look of stern inquiry, as though what Pierre had just said was so strange that one could not take it in.
Who gave orders? he said in his shrill, harsh voice.
And as Princess Mary gave no answer, she left the room.
And scarcely had she put that question than God gave her the answer in her own heart.
Perhaps he did not really think this when he met women--even probably he did not, for in general he thought very little--but his looks and manner gave that impression.
Mademoiselle Bourienne flushed, and gave the princess a frightened look.

He gave the words of greeting, and the first regiment roared "Hurrah!" so deafeningly, continuously, and joyfully that the men themselves were awed by their multitude and the immensity of the power they constituted.
They followed Prince Dolgorukov out into the corridor and met--coming out of the door of the Emperor's room by which Dolgorukov had entered--a short man in civilian clothes with a clever face and sharply projecting jaw which, without spoiling his face, gave him a peculiar vivacity and shiftiness of expression.
Rostov smilingly reassured the dragoon and gave him money.
Weyrother again gave that smile which seemed to say that to him it was strange and ridiculous to meet objections from Russian generals and to have to prove to them what he had not merely convinced himself of, but had also convinced the sovereign Emperors of.
What if he gave me a place near him?
The adjutants and battalion and regimental commanders mounted, crossed themselves, gave final instructions, orders, and commissions to the baggage men who remained behind, and the monotonous tramp of thousands of feet resounded.
He greeted the men of the foremost regiment and gave them the order to march, thereby indicating that he intended to lead that column himself.
Kutuzov, affecting the manners of an old soldier at the front, gave the command "Attention!" and rode up to the Emperors with a salute.
He touched his horse and having called Miloradovich, the commander of the column, gave him the order to advance.
On receiving the order he gave his horse the rein and galloped along the line.
Nobody gave him a look or thought of raising him.
The ice gave way under one of the foremost soldiers, and one leg slipped into the water.
Denisov gave no answer.
He gave her a grateful look, but was still expectant and looking for someone.
They hardly gave one another time to ask questions and give replies concerning a thousand little matters which could not interest anyone but themselves.
Sitting on the sofa with the little cushions on its arms, in what used to be his old schoolroom, and looking into Natasha's wildly bright eyes, Rostov re-entered that world of home and childhood which had no meaning for anyone else, but gave him some of the best joys of his life; and the burning of an arm with a ruler as a proof of love did not seem to him senseless, he understood and was not surprised at it.
A week later Pierre gave his wife full power to control all his estates in Great Russia, which formed the larger part of his property, and left for Petersburg alone.
She approached him, saw his face, and something gave way within her.
Prince Andrew turned to him, but the doctor gave him a bewildered look and passed by without a word.
In a corner of the room something red and tiny gave a grunt and squealed in Mary Bogdanovna's trembling white hands.
"Ah, what have you done to me?" it still seemed to say, and Prince Andrew felt that something gave way in his soul and that he was guilty of a sin he could neither remedy nor forget.
His approaching departure did not prevent his amusing himself, but rather gave zest to his pleasures.
"Perhaps," coldly and angrily replied Dolokhov, glancing at Sonya, and, scowling, he gave Nicholas just such a look as he had given Pierre at the club dinner.
She gave him an imploring, frightened look.
Nicholas had replied that it would be more than enough for him and that he gave his word of honor not to take anything more till the spring.
Pierre gave no answer, for he neither heard nor saw anything.
His arms felt numb, his legs almost gave way, it seemed to him that he was tired out.
Pierre hurriedly began taking off his right boot also and was going to tuck up the other trouser leg to save this stranger the trouble, but the Mason told him that was not necessary and gave him a slipper for his left foot.
Prince Vasili gave Pierre a significant look.
His new brethren gave him letters to the Kiev and Odessa Masons and promised to write to him and guide him in his new activity.
Anna Pavlovna gave him her shriveled hand to kiss and introduced him to several persons whom he did not know, giving him a whispered description of each.
They put questions and gave brief replies about things they knew ought to be talked over at length.
He is kind, he is one of God's chosen, he's a benefactor, he once gave me ten rubles, I remember.
He came to town and wanted to invite me to dinner--I gave him a pretty dinner!...
Tushin, Tushin, don't you remember, who gave you a lift at Schon Grabern?
He did not finish, but gave a painfully unnatural smile.
Amid the turmoil of his activities and distractions, however, Pierre at the end of a year began to feel that the more firmly he tried to rest upon it, the more masonic ground on which he stood gave way under him.
At the time I gave him no answer.
Now I recalled every detail of that meeting and in my mind gave him the most malevolent and bitter replies.
I stepped on it, but it bent and gave way and I began to clamber up a fence which I could scarcely reach with my hands.
To this he replied that one should not deprive a wife of one's embraces and gave me to understand that that was my duty.
So they gave their consent.
The count was so disconcerted by this long-foreseen inquiry that without consideration he gave the first reply that came into his head.
She looked at her and gave her alone a special smile in addition to her usual smile as hostess.
Stolypin gave a deep bass guffaw as he munched a piece of bread and cheese.
The father and mother came into the room and gave the betrothed couple their blessing.
In the middle of the summer Princess Mary received an unexpected letter from Prince Andrew in Switzerland in which he gave her strange and surprising news.
After long hesitations, doubts, and prayers, Princess Mary gave the letter to her father.
His hussar comrades--not only those of his own regiment, but the whole brigade--gave Rostov a dinner to which the subscription was fifteen rubles a head, and at which there were two bands and two choirs of singers.
At the last post station before Otradnoe he gave the driver a three-ruble tip, and on arriving he ran breathlessly, like a boy, up the steps of his home.
The wolf paused, turned its heavy forehead toward the dogs awkwardly, like a man suffering from the quinsy, and, still slightly swaying from side to side, gave a couple of leaps and with a swish of its tail disappeared into the skirt of the wood.
For sole reply Daniel gave him a shy, childlike, meek, and amiable smile.
I gave him one with the fox.
They looked at one another (now that the hunt was over and they were in the house, Nicholas no longer considered it necessary to show his manly superiority over his sister), Natasha gave him a wink, and neither refrained long from bursting into a peal of ringing laughter even before they had a pretext ready to account for it.
I did once, but gave it up.
No one in the house sent people about or gave them as much trouble as Natasha did.
He took off its cloth covering, and the harp gave out a jarring sound.
From the back porch came the sound of feet descending the steps, the bottom step upon which snow had fallen gave a ringing creak and he heard the voice of an old maidservant saying, Straight, straight, along the path, Miss.
We all profess the Christian law of forgiveness of injuries and love of our neighbors, the law in honor of which we have built in Moscow forty times forty churches--but yesterday a deserter was knouted to death and a minister of that same law of love and forgiveness, a priest, gave the soldier a cross to kiss before his execution.
On Thursdays Princess Mary remembered with a mournful smile that she now had no one to write to, since Julie--whose presence gave her no pleasure was here and they met every week.
Another lately added sorrow arose from the lessons she gave her six year-old nephew.
Next day the prince did not say a word to his daughter, but she noticed that at dinner he gave orders that Mademoiselle Bourienne should be served first.
After dinner, when the footman handed coffee and from habit began with the princess, the prince suddenly grew furious, threw his stick at Philip, and instantly gave instructions to have him conscripted for the army.
Nicholas' Day and the prince's name day--all Moscow came to the prince's front door but he gave orders to admit no one and to invite to dinner only a small number, a list of whom he gave to Princess Mary.
He gave her a cold, angry look and offered her his wrinkled, clean- shaven cheek to kiss.
The scantily clad Helene smiled at everyone in the same way, and Natasha gave Boris a similar smile.
Only after she had reached home was Natasha able clearly to think over what had happened to her, and suddenly remembering Prince Andrew she was horrified, and at tea to which all had sat down after the opera, she gave a loud exclamation, flushed, and ran out of the room.
Pierre received him unwillingly at first, but got used to him after a while, sometimes even accompanied him on his carousals, and gave him money under the guise of loans.
You know Prince Andrew gave you complete freedom--if it is really so; but I don't believe it!
Pierre gave his word of honor.
He gave an angry thrust to his horse, which had grown restive under him, and plunged into the water, heading for the deepest part where the current was swift.
The Emperor gave his consent.
It seemed to Boris that it gave the Emperor pleasure to utter these words.
If you gave me Petersburg and Moscow I could not accept such conditions.
Yes, I know you have made peace with the Turks without obtaining Moldavia and Wallachia; I would have given your sovereign those provinces as I gave him Finland.
To the alleged insanity of the Swedes, Balashev wished to reply that when Russia is on her side Sweden is practically an island: but Napoleon gave an angry exclamation to drown his voice.
Kutuzov, who was already weary of Bolkonski's activity which seemed to reproach his own idleness, very readily let him go and gave him a mission to Barclay de Tolly.
And the officer gave them details of the Saltanov battle, which he had heard at the staff.
Rostov riding in front gave the order "Forward!" and the hussars, with clanking sabers and subdued talk, their horses' hoofs splashing in the mud, defiled in fours and moved along the broad road planted with birch trees on each side, following the infantry and a battery that had gone on in front.
He touched his horse, gave the word of command, and immediately, hearing behind him the tramp of the horses of his deployed squadron, rode at full trot downhill toward the dragoons.
With the same feeling with which he had galloped across the path of a wolf, Rostov gave rein to his Donets horse and galloped to intersect the path of the dragoons' disordered lines.
She knew for certain that she was pretty, but this no longer gave her satisfaction as it used to.
The assembled nobles all took off their uniforms and settled down again in their homes and clubs, and not without some groans gave orders to their stewards about the enrollment, feeling amazed themselves at what they had done.
She gave it to him and, unpleasant as it was to her to do so, ventured to ask him what her father was doing.
The prince had a list of things to be bought in Smolensk and, walking up and down the room past Alpatych who stood by the door, he gave his instructions.
The same evening that the prince gave his instructions to Alpatych, Dessalles, having asked to see Princess Mary, told her that, as the prince was not very well and was taking no steps to secure his safety, though from Prince Andrew's letter it was evident that to remain at Bald Hills might be dangerous, he respectfully advised her to send a letter by Alpatych to the Provincial Governor at Smolensk, asking him to let her know the state of affairs and the extent of the danger to which Bald Hills was exposed.
He gave me his word he would not retreat, but suddenly sent instructions that he was retiring that night.
But while himself remaining, he gave instructions for the departure of the princess and Dessalles with the little prince to Bogucharovo and thence to Moscow.
His excellency Prince Andrew himself gave me orders to move all the people away and not leave them with the enemy, and there is an order from the Tsar about it too.
But again the sense that she represented her father and her brother gave her courage, and she boldly began her speech.
Rostov and Ilyin gave rein to their horses for a last race along the incline before reaching Bogucharovo, and Rostov, outstripping Ilyin, was the first to gallop into the village street.
Rostov dismounted, gave his horse to the orderly, and followed Alpatych to the house, questioning him as to the state of affairs.
To remember her gave him pleasure, and when his comrades, hearing of his adventure at Bogucharovo, rallied him on having gone to look for hay and having picked up one of the wealthiest heiresses in Russia, he grew angry.
The lieutenant colonel of hussars smiled beneath his mustache at the orderly's tone, dismounted, gave his horse to a dispatch runner, and approached Bolkonski with a slight bow.
On reaching home Pierre gave orders to Evstafey--his head coachman who knew everything, could do anything, and was known to all Moscow--that he would leave that night for the army at Mozhaysk, and that his saddle horses should be sent there.
Here, at the extreme left flank, Bennigsen talked a great deal and with much heat, and, as it seemed to Pierre, gave orders of great military importance.
Corvisart gave me these lozenges but they don't help at all.
And having entered on the path of definition, of which he was fond, Napoleon suddenly and unexpectedly gave a new one.
"One moment, one moment!" replied the adjutant, and riding up to a stout colonel who was standing in the meadow, he gave him some message and then addressed Pierre.
The men soon accepted Pierre into their family, adopted him, gave him a nickname ("our gentleman"), and made kindly fun of him among themselves.
And the sergeant, taking one of the men by the shoulders, gave him a shove with his knee.
They gave little jumps as they walked, as though they were on springs.
Suddenly something happened: the young officer gave a gasp and bending double sat down on the ground like a bird shot on the wing.
Napoleon gave orders that the troops should form up on the farther side and wait.
