What her good friend, Charles Dudley Warner, wrote about her in Harper's Magazine in 1896 was true then, and it remains true now:

Any deaf child or deaf and blind child in good health can be taught.

Well, one day King Frost was trying to think of some good that he could do with his treasure; and suddenly he concluded to send some of it to his kind neighbour, Santa Claus, to buy presents of food and clothing for the poor, that they might not suffer so much when King Winter went near their homes.
"He will know how to make good use of the treasure," added Jack Frost; then he told the fairies not to loiter by the way, but to do his bidding quickly.
Then the fairies thanked him for his forgiveness, and promised to work very hard to please him; and the good-natured king took them all up in his arms, and carried them safely home to his palace.

"Very good," answered Nesvitski.
What good are they?
With his shaggy head thrown back like birds when they drink, pressing his spurs mercilessly into the sides of his good horse, Bedouin, and sitting as though falling backwards in the saddle, he galloped to the other flank of the squadron and shouted in a hoarse voice to the men to look to their pistols.
I hope it is good news?
Bring us nice news of a victory by the Archduke Karl or Ferdinand (one archduke's as good as another, as you know) and even if it is only over a fire brigade of Bonaparte's, that will be another story and we'll fire off some cannon!
We are Macked), he concluded, feeling that he had produced a good epigram, a fresh one that would be repeated.
"Well, good-by, Prince," said he to Bagration.
"Get in," said Kutuzov, and noticing that Bolkonski still delayed, he added: "I need good officers myself, need them myself!"
One would think that as an artillery officer you would set a good example, yet here you are without your boots!
Ouh! ouh! came peals of such healthy and good-humored laughter from the soldiers that it infected the French involuntarily, so much so that the only thing left to do seemed to be to unload the muskets, explode the ammunition, and all return home as quickly as possible.
No one had given Tushin orders where and at what to fire, but after consulting his sergeant major, Zakharchenko, for whom he had great respect, he had decided that it would be a good thing to set fire to the village.
"Very good!" said Bagration in reply to the officer's report, and began deliberately to examine the whole battlefield extended before him.
"Very good!" said Bagration.
Rapidly leaping the furrows, he fled across the field with the impetuosity he used to show at catchplay, now and then turning his good-natured, pale, young face to look back.
"Good-bye, my dear fellow," said Tushin.
Good-bye, my dear fellow! and for some unknown reason tears suddenly filled his eyes.
Good luck to you, fellow countrymen.
How and when this would be he did not know, he did not even know if it would be a good thing (he even felt, he knew not why, that it would be a bad thing), but he knew it would happen.
That's a good thing, but don't move from Prince Vasili's.
It is good to have a friend like the prince, she said, smiling at Prince Vasili.
He had merely understood that the woman he had known as a child, of whom when her beauty was mentioned he had said absent-mindedly: "Yes, she's good looking," he had understood that this woman might belong to him.
Then it would suddenly seem to him that it was not she but he was so unusually beautiful, and that that was why they all looked so at him, and flattered by this general admiration he would expand his chest, raise his head, and rejoice at his good fortune.
I loved your father... and she will make you a good wife...
It is good because it's definite and one is rid of the old tormenting doubt.
He shaved and scented himself with the care and elegance which had become habitual to him and, his handsome head held high, entered his father's room with the good-humored and victorious air natural to him.
That's a good thing.
Tikhon, like all good valets, instinctively knew the direction of his master's thoughts.
"No good... no good..." said the prince rapidly, and thrusting his feet into his slippers and his arms into the sleeves of his dressing gown, he went to the couch on which he slept.
Decide, my dear, good, gentle Marie, whom I have always loved as a daughter!
"Very well, then, be so good as to wait," said Prince Andrew to the general, in Russian, speaking with the French intonation he affected when he wished to speak contemptuously, and noticing Boris, Prince Andrew, paying no more heed to the general who ran after him imploring him to hear something more, nodded and turned to him with a cheerful smile.
But this is what we'll do: I have a good friend, an adjutant general and an excellent fellow, Prince Dolgorukov; and though you may not know it, the fact is that now Kutuzov with his staff and all of us count for nothing.
But what was most amusing," he continued, with a sudden, good-natured laugh, "was that we could not think how to address the reply!
Again he pressed the hand of the latter with an expression of good-natured, sincere, and animated levity.
"But don't hurt my little horse!" said the Alsatian good-naturedly to Rostov when the animal was handed over to the hussar.
"Not 'our Sovereign, the Emperor,' as they say at official dinners," said he, "but the health of our Sovereign, that good, enchanting, and great man!
"I wish you good luck and success, gentlemen!" he added and went out after shaking hands with Dolgorukov and Bilibin.
But the Austrian general, continuing to read, frowned angrily and jerked his elbows, as if to say: "You can tell me your views later, but now be so good as to look at the map and listen."
"Very good, very good," said Bagration.
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.
The morning was bright, he had a good horse under him, and his heart was full of joy and happiness.
How good it would be to know where to seek for help in this life, and what to expect after it beyond the grave!
Oh, well then, good-by: go and dress.
On his return to Moscow from the army, Nicholas Rostov was welcomed by his home circle as the best of sons, a hero, and their darling Nikolenka; by his relations as a charming, attractive, and polite young man; by his acquaintances as a handsome lieutenant of hussars, a good dancer, and one of the best matches in the city.
That's so, your excellency, all they have to do is to eat a good dinner, but providing it and serving it all up, that's not their business!
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.
(In accordance with Lise's and Prince Andrew's wishes they had sent in good time to Moscow for a doctor and were expecting him at any moment.)
"Very good!" said the prince closing the door behind him, and Tikhon did not hear the slightest sound from the study after that.
It's no good making excuses now!
"Well--had a good time?" said the old count, smiling gaily and proudly at his son.
"Dear me!" said his father, who was in a specially good humor.
"Very much," said Nicholas flushing, and with a stupid careless smile, for which he was long unable to forgive himself, "I have lost a little, I mean a good deal, a great deal--forty three thousand."
Good luck to you!
He looked at the countess, and seeing her severe face said: "Well, good-by, Countess," and kissing her hand, he left the room with quick resolute strides, without looking at Natasha.
Is this good or bad?
It is good for me, bad for another traveler, and for himself it's unavoidable, because he needs money for food; the man said an officer had once given him a thrashing for letting a private traveler have the courier horses.
And what have you done with all these good gifts?
"Good!" said the Rhetor quickly, apparently satisfied with this answer.
"How easy it is, how little effort it needs, to do so much good," thought Pierre, "and how little attention we pay to it!"
Everything bore an impress of tidiness and good management.
The only good is the absence of those evils.
What error or evil can there be in my wishing to do good, and even doing a little--though I did very little and did it very badly?
And the main thing is," he continued, "that I know, and know for certain, that the enjoyment of doing this good is the only sure happiness in life."
But what's right and what's good must be judged by one who knows all, but not by us.
They could not understand that I have not the necessary qualifications for it--the kind of good-natured, fussy shallowness necessary for the position.
His eyes glittered feverishly while he tried to prove to Pierre that in his actions there was no desire to do good to his neighbor.
But it is a good thing for proprietors who perish morally, bring remorse upon themselves, stifle this remorse and grow callous, as a result of being able to inflict punishments justly and unjustly.
Prince Andrew, glancing at Pierre, broke the silence now and then with remarks which showed that he was in a good temper.
If there is a God and future life, there is truth and good, and man's highest happiness consists in striving to attain them.
On hearing those words I said good-by to the holy folk and went.
Today he is cheerful and in good spirits, but that is the effect of your visit--he is not often like that.
The old prince was in a good temper and very gracious to Pierre.
In the regiment, everything was definite: who was lieutenant, who captain, who was a good fellow, who a bad one, and most of all, who was a comrade.
"Good day, your honor!" he shouted, rolling his eyes at Rostov and evidently mistaking him for one of the hospital authorities.
"A good figure and in her first bloom," he was saying, but on seeing Rostov, he stopped short and frowned.
Prince Andrew was most favorably placed to secure good reception in the highest and most diverse Petersburg circles of the day.
It taught men to be wise and good and for their own benefit to follow the example and instruction of the best and wisest men.
Joseph Alexeevich, having remained silent and thoughtful for a good while, told me his view of the matter, which at once lit up for me my whole past and the future path I should follow.
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.
"Just so, just so," repeated the countess, and shaking all over, she went off into a good humored, unexpected, elderly laugh.
But see, those two, though not good-looking, are even more run after.
Pierre, swaying his stout body, advanced, making way through the crowd and nodding to right and left as casually and good-naturedly as if he were passing through a crowd at a fair.
She was at that height of bliss when one becomes completely kind and good and does not believe in the possibility of evil, unhappiness, or sorrow.
It seemed that in this company the insignificance of those people was so definitely accepted that the only possible attitude toward them was one of good humored ridicule.
Having sat some time at table, Speranski corked a bottle of wine and, remarking, "Nowadays good wine rides in a carriage and pair," passed it to the servant and got up.
The old count's hospitality and good nature, which struck one especially in Petersburg as a pleasant surprise, were such that Prince Andrew could not refuse to stay to dinner.
Berg explained so clearly why he wanted to collect at his house a small but select company, and why this would give him pleasure, and why though he grudged spending money on cards or anything harmful, he was prepared to run into some expense for the sake of good society--that Pierre could not refuse, and promised to come.
He is very good to me.
Berg rose and embraced his wife carefully, so as not to crush her lace fichu for which he had paid a good price, kissing her straight on the lips.
What's the good of making so much of it?
Pretty, a good voice, young, and in nobody's way if only they leave her in peace.
The good he has done to everybody here, from his peasants up to the gentry, is incalculable.
Good-bye, my dear friend.
Rostov had become a bluff, good-natured fellow, whom his Moscow acquaintances would have considered rather bad form, but who was liked and respected by his comrades, subordinates, and superiors, and was well contented with his life.
The count was so weak, and trusted Mitenka so much, and was so good-natured, that everybody took advantage of him and things were going from bad to worse.
It's a good day, eh?
The old count had always kept up an enormous hunting establishment.
"Good morning, Uncle!" said Nicholas, when the old man drew near.
I knew you wouldn't be able to resist it and it's a good thing you're going.
"A good thing too, little countess," said "Uncle," "only mind you don't fall off your horse," he added, "because--that's it, come on!--you've nothing to hold on to."
Having straightened his coat and fastened on his hunting knives and horn, he mounted his good, sleek, well-fed, and comfortable horse, Viflyanka, which was turning gray, like himself.
She's as good as many a man!
Yes, she's a good dog, gets what she's after, answered Ilagin indifferently, of the red-spotted bitch Erza, for which, a year before, he had given a neighbor three families of house serfs.
Involuntarily Rostov recalled all the good he had heard about him from his father and the neighbors.
I have got him a good balalayka.
Really very good! said Nicholas with some unintentional superciliousness, as if ashamed to confess that the sounds pleased him very much.
Not 'very good' it's simply delicious!
"That's a good player of ours," she added.
"Good-bye, dear niece," his voice called out of the darkness--not the voice Natasha had known previously, but the one that had sung As 'twas growing dark last night.
What a good fellow Uncle is!
It depends on what you hear; hammering and knocking--that's bad; but a sound of shifting grain is good and one sometimes hears that, too.
I will never let anyone say anything bad of Sonya, for there is nothing but good in her.
It would be too good! said Natasha, rising and going to the looking glasses.
Pierre was one of those retired gentlemen-in-waiting of whom there were hundreds good-humoredly ending their days in Moscow.
"My dear fellow, with our five hundred thousand troops it should be easy to have a good style," returned Count Rostopchin.
"Well, good-by, your excellency, keep well!" said Rostopchin, getting up with characteristic briskness and holding out his hand to the prince.
Good-bye, my dear fellow....
And do you know the new way of courting? said Pierre with an amused smile, evidently in that cheerful mood of good humored raillery for which he so often reproached himself in his diary.
She was by now decidedly plain, but thought herself not merely as good-looking as before but even far more attractive.
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?
She looked straight into his eyes, and his nearness, self-assurance, and the good- natured tenderness of his smile vanquished her.
His father announced to him that he would now pay half his debts for the last time, but only on condition that he went to Moscow as adjutant to the commander-in-chief--a post his father had procured for him--and would at last try to make a good match there.
Eh? said Anatole, with a good-humored laugh.
Natasha had not time to take off the bodice before the door opened and Countess Bezukhova, dressed in a purple velvet gown with a high collar, came into the room beaming with good-humored amiable smiles.
She did not cease chattering good-naturedly and gaily, continually praising Natasha's beauty.
Helene for her part was sincerely delighted with Natasha and wished to give her a good time.
So she knows I am engaged, and she and her husband Pierre--that good Pierre--have talked and laughed about this.
There were a good many people there, but nearly all strangers to Natasha.
She only felt herself again completely borne away into this strange senseless world--so remote from her old world--a world in which it was impossible to know what was good or bad, reasonable or senseless.
If, after that, I could return his smile when saying good-by, if I was able to let it come to that, it means that I loved him from the first.
"Don't answer like that, my good girl!" she said.
He is an invalid and an old man who must be forgiven; but he is good and magnanimous and will love her who makes his son happy.
She cried as she said good-by to Uncle, Sonya remembered.
Balaga was a famous troyka driver who had known Dolokhov and Anatole some six years and had given them good service with his troykas.
"Good day, your excellency!" he said, again holding out his hand to Anatole who had just come in.
Well, good-by, Theodore.
We have had a good time--now farewell, lads!
"Well, good-by, Matrena," said Anatole, kissing her.
Good-bye, Matrena, wish me luck!
"You shameless good-for-nothing!" said she.
He was in very good spirits; the affair with the purchaser was going on satisfactorily, and there was nothing to keep him any longer in Moscow, away from the countess whom he missed.
He was meeting Helene in Vilna after not having seen her for a long time and did not recall the past, but as Helene was enjoying the favors of a very important personage and Boris had only recently married, they met as good friends of long standing.
As soon as the King began to speak loud and fast his royal dignity instantly forsook him, and without noticing it he passed into his natural tone of good-natured familiarity.
"Good day, General!" said he.
The Emperor was in very good spirits after his ride through Vilna, where crowds of people had rapturously greeted and followed him.
What is the good of that?
Bennigsen was a landlord in the Vilna province who appeared to be doing the honors of the district, but was in reality a good general, useful as an adviser and ready at hand to replace Barclay.
Prince Andrew had an opportunity of getting a good look at him, for Pfuel arrived soon after himself and, in passing through to the drawing room, stopped a minute to speak to Chernyshev.
It was one of the millions of proposals, one as good as another, that could be made as long as it was quite unknown what character the war would take.
Armfeldt says our army is cut in half, and Paulucci says we have got the French army between two fires; Michaud says that the worthlessness of the Drissa camp lies in having the river behind it, and Pfuel says that is what constitutes its strength; Toll proposes one plan, Armfeldt another, and they are all good and all bad, and the advantages of any suggestions can be seen only at the moment of trial.
Not only does a good army commander not need any special qualities, on the contrary he needs the absence of the highest and best human attributes--love, poetry, tenderness, and philosophic inquiring doubt.
If the thought that things looked bad chanced to enter anyone's head, he tried to be as cheerful as befits a good soldier and not to think of the general trend of affairs, but only of the task nearest to hand.
But she was not even grateful to him for it; nothing good on Pierre's part seemed to her to be an effort, it seemed so natural for him to be kind to everyone that there was no merit in his kindness.
"Teach me what I should do, how to live my life, how I may grow good forever, forever!" she pleaded.
Napoleon did not smile, though he was evidently in high good humor, and he ordered these words to be repeated.
Prince Andrew remained silent, and his expression was so forbidding that Pierre addressed his remarks chiefly to the good-natured battalion commander.
"Good-bye, be off!" he shouted.
All this must be done in good order (le tout se fera avec ordre et methode) as far as possible retaining troops in reserve.
Well, Rapp, do you think we shall do good business today?
They talk about medicine--what is the good of medicine when it can't cure a cold!
Be so good as to ride to General Barclay and inform him of my firm intention to attack the enemy tomorrow, said Kutuzov sternly.
"My head, be it good or bad, must depend on itself," said he, rising from the bench, and he rode to Fili where his carriages were waiting.
Well, good-by, Peter Kirilych--isn't it?
Good-bye, Peter Kirilych!
"Good-bye!" he said and turned with his groom toward the inn.
But he's a good-for-nothing lad!
Good-bye, my dear fellow.
What a good thing it would be!
Sonya felt that this was true: that the only possibility of retrieving the Rostovs' affairs was by Nicholas marrying a rich woman, and that the princess was a good match.
"Well, Vasilich, is everything ready?" asked the count, and stroking his bald head he looked good-naturedly at the officer and the orderly and nodded to them.
Count, be so good as to allow me... for God's sake, to get into some corner of one of your carts!
Good-bye, good-by! he muttered.
Good-bye, good-by! he muttered.
Be so good as to step in.
Be so good as to protect us!
As you see" (he glanced with an amused air and good-natured smile at his coat and boots) "my things are worn out and I have no money, so I was going to ask the count..."
"Good morning, lads!" said the count briskly and loudly.
Many other victims have perished and are perishing for the public good--and he began thinking of his social duties to his family and to the city entrusted to him, and of himself--not himself as Theodore Vasilyevich Rostopchin (he fancied that Theodore Vasilyevich Rostopchin was sacrificing himself for the public good) but himself as governor, the representative of authority and of the Tsar.
"Good!" said Murat and, turning to one of the gentlemen in his suite, ordered four light guns to be moved forward to fire at the gates.
Though tattered, hungry, worn out, and reduced to a third of their original number, the French entered Moscow in good marching order.
The other was that vague and quite Russian feeling of contempt for everything conventional, artificial, and human--for everything the majority of men regard as the greatest good in the world.
* "Good day, everybody!"
The French are good fellows.
He was so very polite, amiable, good-natured, and genuinely grateful to Pierre for saving his life that Pierre had not the heart to refuse, and sat down with him in the parlor--the first room they entered.
There was so much good nature and nobility (in the French sense of the word) in the officer's voice, in the expression of his face and in his gestures, that Pierre, unconsciously smiling in response to the Frenchman's smile, pressed the hand held out to him.
Will you now be so good as to tell me with whom I have the honor of conversing so pleasantly, instead of being in the ambulance with that maniac's bullet in my body?
The captain was so naively and good-humoredly gay, so real, and so pleased with himself that Pierre almost winked back as he looked merrily at him.
The few glasses of wine he had drunk and the conversation with this good-natured man had destroyed the mood of concentrated gloom in which he had spent the last few days and which was essential for the execution of his design.
"There now, how good it is, what more does one need?" thought he.
What are you staring at, you good-for-nothing?...
"Dear people, good Christians, save me, help me, dear friends... help us, somebody," she muttered between her sobs.
"Your information may be better than mine," Anna Pavlovna suddenly and venomously retorted on the inexperienced young man, "but I know on good authority that this doctor is a very learned and able man.
Those who tried to understand the general course of events and to take part in it by self-sacrifice and heroism were the most useless members of society, they saw everything upside down, and all they did for the common good turned out to be useless and foolish--like Pierre's and Mamonov's regiments which looted Russian villages, and the lint the young ladies prepared and that never reached the wounded, and so on.
Nicholas was in such good spirits that this merely amused him.
There were a great many ladies and some of Nicholas' Moscow acquaintances, but there were no men who could at all vie with the cavalier of St. George, the hussar remount officer, the good-natured and well-bred Count Rostov.
But the latter's good-natured naivete was so boundless that sometimes even he involuntarily yielded to Nicholas' good humor.
The governor's good-natured wife came up with a look of disapproval.
"Oh no, we are good friends with him," said Nicholas in the simplicity of his heart; it did not enter his head that a pastime so pleasant to himself might not be pleasant to someone else.
Nicholas also noticed that look and, as if understanding it, flushed with pleasure and began to kiss the boy with good natured playfulness.
His having encountered her in such exceptional circumstances, and his mother having at one time mentioned her to him as a good match, had drawn his particular attention to her.
But his brilliantly white, strong teeth which showed in two unbroken semicircles when he laughed--as he often did--were all sound and good, there was not a gray hair in his beard or on his head, and his whole body gave an impression of suppleness and especially of firmness and endurance.
They called him "little falcon" or "Platosha," chaffed him good-naturedly, and sent him on errands.
"How good it would be!" and taking her hand he kissed it.
He gazed at the caleches and carriages in which soldiers were riding and remarked that it was a very good thing, as those vehicles could be used to carry provisions, the sick, and the wounded.
"It's good, quite good, thank you," said the Frenchman, in French, "but there must be some linen left over."
"Be so good..." shouted the captain, frowning angrily.
Good lord, they've even grabbed those chaises!...
Suddenly he burst out into a fit of his broad, good-natured laughter, so loud that men from various sides turned with surprise to see what this strange and evidently solitary laughter could mean.
He did not consider or ask himself whether the news was good or bad.
To be able to go a thousand miles he must imagine that something good awaits him at the end of those thousand miles.
Then I see he's no good and think I'll go and fetch a likelier one.
What was the good of bringing him?
"Oh, but he was a regular good-for-nothing," said Tikhon.
* "Good day, gentlemen."
"Good evening, gentlemen," said Dolokhov.
Petya wished to say "Good night" but could not utter a word.
Well now, good-by.
From all sides came shouts of command, and from the left came smartly dressed cavalrymen on good horses, passing the prisoners at a trot.
The French, excited by all that had happened, were talking loudly among themselves, but as they passed Dolokhov who gently switched his boots with his whip and watched them with cold glassy eyes that boded no good, they became silent.
"C'est grand!" * say the historians, and there no longer exists either good or evil but only "grand" and "not grand."
Grand is good, not grand is bad.
For us with the standard of good and evil given us by Christ, no human actions are incommensurable.
That's a sign of a good harvest next year.
Oh, how good, how splendid!
Terenty, when he had helped him undress and wished him good night, often lingered with his master's boots in his hands and clothes over his arm, to see whether he would not start a talk.
It was the first piece of good news we had received for a long time.
With all his soul he had always sought one thing--to be perfectly good--so he could not be afraid of death.
Dessalles' voice was heard outside the door asking whether little Nicholas might come in to say good night.
We imagine that when we are thrown out of our usual ruts all is lost, but it is only then that what is new and good begins.
"Well, good night, Mary!" said Natasha.
It did me so much good to tell all about it today.
It was hard and painful, but good, very good! said Natasha.
"Well, good night," said Natasha.
What a good fellow he is and how attentive, and how he remembers everything," he thought, looking at Savelich's old face, "and what a pleasant smile he has!"
What's the good of freedom to me, your excellency?
If I may take the liberty, your excellency, it would be a good thing.
It would be a very good thing for the Rostovs, they are said to be utterly ruined.
What a fine, good-looking officer and how kind.
Princess Mary, foreseeing no end to this, rose first, and complaining of a headache began to say good night.
Tomorrow--but I won't say good-by yet.
Next day Pierre came to say good-by.
When on saying good-by he took her thin, slender hand, he could not help holding it a little longer in his own.
"Good-bye, Count," she said aloud.
Pierre's insanity consisted in not waiting, as he used to do, to discover personal attributes which he termed "good qualities" in people before loving them; his heart was now overflowing with love, and by loving people without cause he discovered indubitable causes for loving them.
Whether the preservation of my father's house in Moscow, or the glory of the Russian arms, or the prosperity of the Petersburg and other universities, or the freedom of Poland or the greatness of Russia, or the balance of power in Europe, or a certain kind of European culture called "progress" appear to me to be good or bad, I must admit that besides these things the action of every historic character has other more general purposes inaccessible to me.
What would then have become of the activity of all those who opposed the tendency that then prevailed in the government--an activity that in the opinion of the historians was good and beneficent?
"Good-bye, Princess!" said he.
Well then, good-by!
Excuse me, good-by! and suddenly she began to cry and was hurrying from the room.
At first he watched the serfs, trying to understand their aims and what they considered good and bad, and only pretended to direct them and give orders while in reality learning from them their methods, their manner of speech, and their judgment of what was good and bad.
He was as careful of the sowing and reaping of the peasants' hay and corn as of his own, and few landowners had their crops sown and harvested so early and so well, or got so good a return, as did Nicholas.
Sometimes when, trying to understand him, she spoke of the good work he was doing for his serfs, he would be vexed and reply: Not in the least; it never entered my head and I wouldn't do that for their good!
That's all poetry and old wives' talk--all that doing good to one's neighbor!
"And fairness, of course," he added, "for if the peasant is naked and hungry and has only one miserable horse, he can do no good either for himself or for me."
And all Nicholas did was fruitful--probably just because he refused to allow himself to think that he was doing good to others for virtue's sake.
He felt the good and bad within himself inextricably mingled and overlapping.
But only what was really good in him was reflected in his wife, all that was not quite good was rejected.
You are pleased, you've had a good time....
Soon after this the children came in to say good night.
Good night! said Pierre, giving his hand to the Swiss tutor, and he turned to young Nicholas with a smile.
It would be good for him to have companions.
Well, good-by! and she left the room.
(Though there were two good portraits of Prince Andrew in the house, Nicholas never imagined him in human form.)
"He is good and kind and I am fond of him!" he thought of Dessalles.
Man is the creation of an all-powerful, all-good, and all-seeing God.
When we do not at all understand the cause of an action, whether a crime, a good action, or even one that is simply nonmoral, we ascribe a greater amount of freedom to it.
I guess that's a good question.
As good as ever.
I just thought it was because he was so good looking.
You've been a very good girl.
A friend, certainly, but their relationship was also romantic so best friend didn't seem like a good description.
It was a good thing he found it so amusing.
I guess the only thing he wanted more than that was a good woman and children.
It was a good thing they didn't change after church, because everyone at the table was dressed as if going to church.
That was good, wasn't it?
I'm going to take Destiny and Jonathan down to say good-bye.
He probably wanted to say good-bye privately.
When did that start - and was it a good thing?
Alex was in a good mood and it was a pleasant trip - until Felipa made a comment about Tessa's visit the night before.
It was neither good nor bad in her mind back then - it simply was.
Mom always had a good relationship with her sister and brother.
"Good afternoon," Carmen responded, punctuating it with a quick kiss on his lips.
Frustrating as it was - as he was - it would do no good to question him further.
Good. It's about time you started thinking defensively.
That is good to hear, son.
All this was so terrible and unreal that he could not understand it at all, and so had good reason to be afraid.
Good gracious, I believe I am.
Just as good a Wizard as you are a Sorcerer.
"Very good," remarked the Wizard.
Now, good people, observe me carefully.
But it took a good many years for them to grow as large and fine as they are now.
"He will sprout very soon," said the Prince, "and grow into a large bush, from which we shall in time be able to pick several very good sorcerers."

On top of the common-good projects supported with our tax dollars, almost all of us—certainly not just the wealthy—have causes we support.
I know the list of nefarious uses of the Internet—but on balance, we are building it for good purposes.
