After his dismissal from headquarters Zherkov had not remained in the regiment, saying he was not such a fool as to slave at the front when he could get more rewards by doing nothing on the staff, and had succeeded in attaching himself as an orderly officer to Prince Bagration.
"How did you get here?" said he, turning to Zherkov.
Who'll get there first?
Will they get there and fire the bridge or will the French get within grapeshot range and wipe them out?
"Ugh. The hussars will get it hot!" said Nesvitski; "they are within grapeshot range now."
But now, even if they do get peppered, the squadron may be recommended for honors and he may get a ribbon.
See if I don't get promoted to a sublieutenancy.
"Get well soon, lads!" he continued, turning to the soldiers.
We had expected, as I told you, to get at their rear by seven in the morning but had not reached it by five in the afternoon.
The road was so obstructed with carts that it was impossible to get by in a carriage.
I know nothing except that it was all I could do to get here.
"Get in with me," said he to Bolkonski.
"Get in," said Kutuzov, and noticing that Bolkonski still delayed, he added: "I need good officers myself, need them myself!"
"If he is one of the ordinary little staff dandies sent to earn a medal he can get his reward just as well in the rearguard, but if he wishes to stay with me, let him... he'll be of use here if he's a brave officer," thought Bagration.
"Yes, let's go in and I will get myself a roll and some cheese," said Prince Andrew who had not yet had time to eat anything.
The retirement of the center to the other side of the dip in the ground at the rear was hurried and noisy, but the different companies did not get mixed.
It was all that they could do to get the guns up the rise aided by the infantry, and having reached the village of Gruntersdorf they halted.
He tried to get away from them, but they would not for an instant let his shoulder move a hair's breadth.
It would not ache--it would be well--if only they did not pull it, but it was impossible to get rid of them.
But you will see everything for yourself when you get to Petersburg.
It is high time for you to get away from these terrible recollections.
Poor Vyazmitinov could not get any farther!
When did you get the letter?
"Now you, young prince, what's your name?" said Prince Bolkonski, turning to Anatole, "come here, let us talk and get acquainted."
And don't I see that that idiot had eyes only for Bourienne--I shall have to get rid of her.
I'm not going to get married.
Rostov had not yet had time to get his uniform.
"Well, how are you going to get out of that?" he remarked.
I did not think he would get it to you so quickly....
As for us, Count, we get along on our pay.
Our stories have some weight, not like the stories of those fellows on the staff who get rewards without doing anything!
Bolkonski took the opportunity to go in to get some details of the coming action from Dolgorukov.
I'll take another turn and when I get back I'll go to the general and ask him.
On the day of battle the soldiers excitedly try to get beyond the interests of their regiment, they listen intently, look about, and eagerly ask concerning what is going on around them.
You should have gone on long ago, now you won't get there till evening.
The troops were running in such a dense mass that once surrounded by them it was difficult to get out again.
One was shouting, Get on!
He will not get away before the Frenchman remembers his bayonet and stabs him....
Bagration knew that as the distance between the two flanks was more than six miles, even if the messenger were not killed (which he very likely would be), and found the commander-in-chief (which would be very difficult), he would not be able to get back before evening.
On being relieved from picket duty Rostov had managed to get a few hours' sleep before morning and felt cheerful, bold, and resolute, with elasticity of movement, faith in his good fortune, and generally in that state of mind which makes everything seem possible, pleasant, and easy.
Only to get past them quicker, quicker!
He urged on his already weary horse to get quickly past these crowds, but the farther he went the more disorganized they were.
Get onto the ice, over the ice!
"Now then, get on," he shouted to the driver.
You shall have three rubles for vodka--get on!
Who is going to get me the flowers?
I shall have my own orchestra, but shouldn't we get the gypsy singers as well?
We can't get them from anyone else.
Pierre has arrived, and now we shall get anything we want from his hothouses.
All Moscow repeated Prince Dolgorukov's saying: "If you go on modeling and modeling you must get smeared with clay," suggesting consolation for our defeat by the memory of former victories; and the words of Rostopchin, that French soldiers have to be incited to battle by highfalutin words, and Germans by logical arguments to show them that it is more dangerous to run away than to advance, but that Russian soldiers only need to be restrained and held back!
It was at first impossible to enter the drawing-room door for the crowd of members and guests jostling one another and trying to get a good look at Bagration over each other's shoulders, as if he were some rare animal.
'Everyone fears a bear,' he says, 'but when you see one your fear's all gone, and your only thought is not to let him get away!'
She won't get over it!
But at the moment when he imagined himself calmed by such reflections, she suddenly came into his mind as she was at the moments when he had most strongly expressed his insincere love for her, and he felt the blood rush to his heart and had again to get up and move about and break and tear whatever came to his hand.
He flung down the slab, broke it, and swooping down on her with outstretched hands shouted, "Get out!" in such a terrible voice that the whole house heard it with horror.
"You did not get my letter?" he asked, and not waiting for a reply-- which he would not have received, for the princess was unable to speak-- he turned back, rapidly mounted the stairs again with the doctor who had entered the hall after him (they had met at the last post station), and again embraced his sister.
"I expected help from you and I get none, none from you either!" said her eyes.
That evening, proud of Dolokhov's proposal, her refusal, and her explanation with Nicholas, Sonya twirled about before she left home so that the maid could hardly get her hair plaited, and she was transparently radiant with impulsive joy.
Please place your money on the cards or I may get muddled in the reckoning.
"One does get tired sitting so long," he added.
It was as if the thread of the chief screw which held his life together were stripped, so that the screw could not get in or out, but went on turning uselessly in the same place.
It was plain that he was lying and only wanted to get more money from the traveler.
But the officer thrashed him because he had to get on as quickly as possible.
Pierre quickly took out his purse and watch, but could not manage for some time to get the wedding ring off his fat finger.
Get along with you!'
"When you see my sister, Princess Mary, you'll get on with her," he said.
I should be thankful to do nothing, but here on the one hand the local nobility have done me the honor to choose me to be their marshal; it was all I could do to get out of it.
How did the star get into the icon?
They were half clad, hungry, too weak to get away on foot and had no means of obtaining a conveyance.
I shall answer for it and not you, and you'd better not buzz about here till you get hurt.
"I get there," began Denisov.
Rostov, who felt his friend's absence very much, having no news of him since he left and feeling very anxious about his wound and the progress of his affairs, took advantage of the armistice to get leave to visit Denisov in hospital.
The foul air, to which he had already begun to get used in the corridor, was still stronger here.
"Get him to his place and give him some water," said Rostov, pointing to the Cossack.
No, I only wonder how you managed to get away from your regiment.
The smell of the food the Preobrazhenskis were eating and a sense of hunger recalled him from these reflections; he had to get something to eat before going away.
He feared to give way to his thoughts, yet could not get rid of them.
My God, I cannot get on with him at all.
But on the contrary, my papa and mamma are now provided for--I have arranged that rent for them in the Baltic Provinces--and I can live in Petersburg on my pay, and with her fortune and my good management we can get along nicely.
A third of the visitors had already arrived, but the Rostovs, who were to be present, were still hurrying to get dressed.
They had decided to be at the ball by half past ten, and Natasha had still to get dressed and they had to call at the Taurida Gardens.
He walked in rapidly, bowing to right and left as if anxious to get the first moments of the reception over.
But either from fatigue or want of sleep he was ill-disposed for work and could get nothing done.
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.
You can get to know something, you can ask for something.
And I don't at all want to get married.
At first the family felt some constraint in intercourse with Prince Andrew; he seemed a man from another world, and for a long time Natasha trained the family to get used to him, proudly assuring them all that he only appeared to be different, but was really just like all of them, and that she was not afraid of him and no one else ought to be.
Sometimes the others would get up and go away and the couple, left alone, still remained silent.
I shall come to a place and pray there, and before having time to get used to it or getting to love it, I shall go farther.
Daniel himself felt this, and as usual stood just inside the door, trying to speak softly and not move, for fear of breaking something in the master's apartment, and he hastened to say all that was necessary so as to get from under that ceiling, out into the open under the sky once more.
"To search far," he said, turning back the skirt of his coat to get at his snuffbox.
"Only once in my life to get an old wolf, I want only that!" thought he, straining eyes and ears and looking to the left and then to the right and listening to the slightest variation of note in the cries of the dogs.
The wolf crouched, gnashed her teeth, and again rose and bounded forward, followed at the distance of a couple of feet by all the borzois, who did not get any closer to her.
And you, Theodore, get me a piece of chalk.
She seemed to be trying whether any of them would get angry or sulky with her; but the serfs fulfilled no one's orders so readily as they did hers.
Sonya had not seen anything, she was just wanting to blink and to get up when she heard Natasha say, "Of course she will!"
I'll get it unraveled.
French spy, slave of Buonaparte, spy, get out of my house!
"My dear," said Anna Mikhaylovna to her son, "I know from a reliable source that Prince Vasili has sent his son to Moscow to get him married to Julie.
Get the samovar ready!...
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.
When the count returned, Natasha was impolitely pleased and hastened to get away: at that moment she hated the stiff, elderly princess, who could place her in such an embarrassing position and had spent half an hour with her without once mentioning Prince Andrew.
I have already heard much of you in Petersburg and wanted to get to know you, said she to Natasha with her stereotyped and lovely smile.
To get better acquainted she asked that one of the young ladies should come into her box for the rest of the performance, and Natasha moved over to it.
The count decided not to sit down to cards or let his girls out of his sight and to get away as soon as Mademoiselle George's performance was over.
You'll only get yourself into a mess!
Dolokhov with a cold smile and a gleam in his handsome insolent eyes looked at him--evidently wishing to get some more amusement out of him.
He liked to hear those wild, tipsy shouts behind him: Get on!
Get on! when it was impossible to go any faster.
Drive all three to death but get me there in three hours.
You'll get there in time?
Didn't we get you to Tver in seven hours?
Get out of the way!
She did not even get up to greet him.
"But how get married?" said Pierre, in answer to Marya Dmitrievna.
"Things get worse from hour to hour!" ejaculated Marya Dmitrievna.
"Secondly," he continued after a short pause, again rising and again pacing the room, "tomorrow you must get out of Moscow."
Pierre now recognized in his friend a need with which he was only too familiar, to get excited and to have arguments about extraneous matters in order to stifle thoughts that were too oppressive and too intimate.
Oh, when he takes it in hand himself, things get hot... by heaven!...
In evident fear of refusal, like a boy asking for permission to get on a horse, he begged to be allowed to swim across the river before the Emperor's eyes.
The old man at first stared fixedly at his son, and an unnatural smile disclosed the fresh gap between his teeth to which Prince Andrew could not get accustomed.
The men of that party, remembering Suvorov, said that what one had to do was not to reason, or stick pins into maps, but to fight, beat the enemy, keep him out of Russia, and not let the army get discouraged.
On receiving this letter, Nicholas did not even make any attempt to get leave of absence or to retire from the army, but wrote to his parents that he was sorry Natasha was ill and her engagement broken off, and that he would do all he could to meet their wishes.
We can at least get dry there, and Mary Hendrikhovna's there.
He hurriedly but vainly tried to get his foot out of the stirrup and did not remove his frightened blue eyes from Rostov's face.
"You'll never get well like that," she would say, forgetting her grief in her vexation, "if you won't obey the doctor and take your medicine at the right time!
The doctors said that she could not get on without medical treatment, so they kept her in the stifling atmosphere of the town, and the Rostovs did not move to the country that summer of 1812.
One might easily get killed that way!
Get away, get away! and then, turning to the soldiers, shouted:
He will get nothing for his pains!
He hopes we should be in time to get away tomorrow, but I think it would now be better to stay here, said Mademoiselle Bourienne.
"From whom did you get this?" she asked.
It's all a trick," said Dunyasha, "and when Yakov Alpatych returns let us get away... and please don't..."
For the last three days Bogucharovo had lain between the two hostile armies, so that it was as easy for the Russian rearguard to get to it as for the French vanguard; Rostov, as a careful squadron commander, wished to take such provisions as remained at Bogucharovo before the French could get them.
How can you chuck it in like that or shove it under the cord where it'll get rubbed?
Now p'waps Wussians will get a look in.
It's all vewy well--only not for those who get it in the neck.
One can't get on without it.
* "Think it over; get into the barque, and take care not to make it a barque of Charon."
How easily some people get over everything!
"Get over what?" inquired Pierre, looking displeased.
Where do you get your information from?
As soon as Leppich is ready, get together a crew of reliable and intelligent men for his car and send a courier to General Kutuzov to let him know.
"I must get away this very day," he murmured to himself.
How did you get here? said a voice.
Then when we get back, do spend the night with me and we'll arrange a game of cards.
"How did that fellow get here?" asked Pierre.
You see, we were going away, so he would get it all; wasn't it so, your excellency? and again Timokhin turned to the prince.
And we said so because we had nothing to fight for there, we wanted to get away from the battlefield as soon as we could.
It all lies in that: get rid of falsehood and let war be war and not a game.
There was nothing left for them to do but cry "Vive l'Empereur!" and go to fight, in order to get food and rest as conquerors in Moscow.
On returning to Gorki after having seen Prince Andrew, Pierre ordered his groom to get the horses ready and to call him early in the morning, and then immediately fell asleep behind a partition in a corner Boris had given up to him.
We can get a view from there and in our battery it is still bearable, said the adjutant.
Get her leg out!
Get into step, Fedor...
The one thing he now desired with his whole soul was to get away quickly from the terrible sensations amid which he had lived that day and return to ordinary conditions of life and sleep quietly in a room in his own bed.
That will help them to get well quicker.
He asked one, 'From whom did you get it?' 'From so-and-so.'
'From whom did you get it?' and so on till he reached Vereshchagin, a half educated tradesman, you know, 'a pet of a trader,' said the adjutant smiling.
'From whom did you get the proclamation?' 'I wrote it myself.'
Pierre did not understand and was not interested in any of these questions and only answered them in order to get rid of these people.
She tried to get Nicholas back and wished to go herself to join Petya, or to get him an appointment somewhere in Petersburg, but neither of these proved possible.
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.
She and Mavra Kuzminichna tried to get as many of the wounded as possible into their yard.
We'll get it all packed, urged Sonya reproachfully.
But hard as they all worked till quite late that night, they could not get everything packed.
We don't expect to get him home alive!
We don't expect to get him home!
Not only were huge sums offered for the horses and carts, but on the previous evening and early in the morning of the first of September, orderlies and servants sent by wounded officers came to the Rostovs' and wounded men dragged themselves there from the Rostovs' and from neighboring houses where they were accommodated, entreating the servants to try to get them a lift out of Moscow.
Count, be so good as to allow me... for God's sake, to get into some corner of one of your carts!
You have still time to get away....
She was putting away the things that had to be left behind and making a list of them as the countess wished, and she tried to get as much taken away with them as possible.
That same evening-- without even asking himself what they were wanted for--he procured a coachman's coat and cap for Pierre, and promised to get him the pistol next day.
Go and get the samovar to boil for your grandfather.
You think I won't get to him?
Those who were able to get away were going of their own accord, those who remained behind decided for themselves what they must do.
But it is a turbulent crowd, your excellency--I hardly managed to get away from it.
And with that object he had asked Gerasim to get him a peasant's coat and a pistol, confiding to him his intentions of remaining in Joseph Alexeevich's house and keeping his name secret.
No, you shan't get it, he yelled.
A strange feeling of weakness tied him to the spot; he wished to get up and go away, but could not do so.
"I only ran out to get some water," said Mishka.
And as if in order not to offend Sonya and to get rid of her, she turned her face to the window, looked out in such a way that it was evident that she could not see anything, and again settled down in her former attitude.
"Couldn't one get a book?" he asked.
He kept asking them to get him the book and put it under him.
Please get it for me and put it under for a moment, he pleaded in a piteous voice.
Get along! said several voices, and one of the soldiers, evidently afraid that Pierre might want to take from them some of the plate and bronzes that were in the drawer, moved threateningly toward him.
It was now, however, impossible to get back the way he had come; the maid, Aniska, was no longer there, and Pierre with a feeling of pity and disgust pressed the wet, painfully sobbing child to himself as tenderly as he could and ran with her through the garden seeking another way out.
The women and girls flirted with him and, from the first day, the people concerned themselves to get this fine young daredevil of an hussar married and settled down.
With the naive conviction of young men in a merry mood that other men's wives were created for them, Rostov did not leave the lady's side and treated her husband in a friendly and conspiratorial style, as if, without speaking of it, they knew how capitally Nicholas and the lady would get on together.
But you don't suppose I'm going to get you married at once?
On reaching Moscow after her meeting with Rostov, Princess Mary had found her nephew there with his tutor, and a letter from Prince Andrew giving her instructions how to get to her Aunt Malvintseva at Voronezh.
The day after her party the governor's wife came to see Malvintseva and, after discussing her plan with the aunt, remarked that though under present circumstances a formal betrothal was, of course, not to be thought of, all the same the young people might be brought together and could get to know one another.
But with Princess Mary, to whom they were trying to get him engaged, he could never picture anything of future married life.
Every night before lying down, he said: "Lord, lay me down as a stone and raise me up as a loaf!" and every morning on getting up, he said: "I lay down and curled up, I get up and shake myself."
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.
It was done on purpose to get Konovnitsyn into trouble.
Adjutants and generals galloped about, shouted, grew angry, quarreled, said they had come quite wrong and were late, gave vent to a little abuse, and at last gave it all up and went forward, simply to get somewhere.
We shall get somewhere or other!
And they did indeed get somewhere, though not to their right places; a few eventually even got to their right place, but too late to be of any use and only in time to be fired at.
"We couldn't take Murat prisoner this morning or get to the place in time, and nothing can be done now!" he replied to someone else.
If he wants anything and asks me, he won't get a refusal.
Another, a thin little officer, was speaking to everyone, conjecturing where they were now being taken and how far they would get that day.
At the bridge they all halted, waiting for those in front to get across.
To get a better view, several officer prisoners climbed onto the wall of the half-burned house against which Pierre was leaning.
Like this, we shan't get away before evening.
During the hour Pierre watched them they all came flowing from the different streets with one and the same desire to get on quickly; they all jostled one another, began to grow angry and to fight, white teeth gleamed, brows frowned, ever the same words of abuse flew from side to side, and all the faces bore the same swaggeringly resolute and coldly cruel expression that had struck Pierre that morning on the corporal's face when the drums were beating.
Did you get here quickly?
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.
So it came about that at the council at Malo-Yaroslavets, when the generals pretending to confer together expressed various opinions, all mouths were closed by the opinion uttered by the simple-minded soldier Mouton who, speaking last, said what they all felt: that the one thing needful was to get away as quickly as possible; and no one, not even Napoleon, could say anything against that truth which they all recognized.
But though they all realized that it was necessary to get away, there still remained a feeling of shame at admitting that they must flee.
But that native land was too far off, and for a man going a thousand miles it is absolutely necessary to set aside his final goal and to say to himself: "Today I shall get to a place twenty-five miles off where I shall rest and spend the night," and during the first day's journey that resting place eclipses his ultimate goal and attracts all his hopes and desires.
"He'll get away!" said the esaul, screwing up his eyes.
"Now, my lad, we'll go and get dwy," he said to Petya.
I went to get Frenchmen, answered Tikhon boldly and hurriedly, in a husky but melodious bass voice.
And he was always in a hurry to get where he was not.
You send a hundred men away, and thirty get there.
The rest either starve or get killed.
However, we must get to work.
"He'll make them get a move on, those fellows!" said another, laughing.
We can still get a nap before morning.
"Well, you should get some sleep now," said the Cossack.
The Cossack bent forward from under the wagon to get a closer look at Petya.
Denisov came out of the watchman's hut and, having called Petya, gave orders to get ready.
* "Get along, get along!"
And though they pretended to be concerned about the army, each was thinking only of himself and of how to get away quickly and save himself.
You will get well-- quite well.
And do you know, Daddy, the day before yesterday we ran at them and, my word, they didn't let us get near before they just threw down their muskets and went on their knees.
Give him some porridge: it takes a long time to get filled up after starving.
Just then he was only anxious to get away as quickly as possible from places where people were killing one another, to some peaceful refuge where he could recover himself, rest, and think over all the strange new facts he had learned; but on reaching Orel he immediately fell ill.
"Well, tell me... now, how did you get food?" he would ask.
He felt uneasy and embarrassed, but sat on because he simply could not get up and take his leave.
He realized from the first that he would not get up again, despite the doctor's encouragement.
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.
He was hard alike on the lazy, the depraved, and the weak, and tried to get them expelled from the commune.
I can't get a moment's peace....
These questions, then as now, existed only for those who see nothing in marriage but the pleasure married people get from one another, that is, only the beginnings of marriage and not its whole significance, which lies in the family.
Discussions and questions of that kind, which are like the question of how to get the greatest gratification from one's dinner, did not then and do not now exist for those for whom the purpose of a dinner is the nourishment it affords; and the purpose of marriage is the family.
Pierre had but to show a partiality for anything to get just what he liked done always.
Then I took the matter in hand: I left him alone and began with nurse's help to get the other children up, telling him that I did not love him.
Only the possible ones get linked up with a consecutive series of commands corresponding to a series of events, and are executed.
If we examine a man little dependent on external conditions, whose action was performed very recently, and the causes of whose action are beyond our ken, we get the conception of a minimum of inevitability and a maximum of freedom.
Only by separating the two sources of cognition, related to one another as form to content, do we get the mutually exclusive and separately incomprehensible conceptions of freedom and inevitability.
Only by uniting them do we get a clear conception of man's life.

But they had made up their minds to get rid of him.
"We hope that he will get what he deserves," they said.
Any time you can move data collection from humans to computers, you get vast improvements in efficiency.
Any time you can move data processing from intellects to CPUs, you get vast improvements in efficiency.
Because of Moore's Law, computers will get faster and storage will be cheaper.

She said, 'Girl,' to the maid, 'put on a livery, get up behind the carriage, and come with me while I make some calls.'

"With our business, how can we get away?" said Ferapontov.
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.
If you don't get some sleep when you go home, you won't be able to relieve me tonight.
