It refilled itself as if by magic.
The wound healed itself quickly.
The picture itself rendered her speechless.
The problem will work itself out.
It repeats itself because it is the record of the choices of people.
Suddenly facts fell into place, previously homeless happenings began making sense, and a picture arranged itself in Dean's mind.
When the opportunity presented itself, she grabbed it.
Roosevelt is saying that freedom itself cannot exist apart from some amount of economic liberty.
Lana twisted to watch it lower itself to the ground a hundred meters behind her position.
As one problem worked itself out, another always seemed to take its place.
She pulled hard on the rope, feeling some give, then tautness as the anchor lodged itself between unmovable objects.
The craft above him opened its door and lowered itself as close as it dared to the ground.
We hardly understand the process, which itself seems unbelievable.
Some might argue this is not in and of itself a force for peace.
It buries itself alive.
The tiny specs indicating crafts or personnel in the 3D image moved and changed; the image itself spun slowly, as if to present her with all sides of the battle at once.
The leather-like necklace itself contained the stiffness of something new, rather than the well-worn suppleness of the one around her neck.
Now that they were back in sync, would this unexplainable fear wedge itself between them?
The image replayed itself in her mind, and guilt flooded her.
Instead of piety being expressed simply in a multitude of unrelated individual acts, it expressed itself in group action.
But the opportunity to talk privately didn't offer itself the rest of the day.
Under the cloud of war, it is humanity hanging itself on a cross of iron.
Through the falling snow a purple-black and starry sky showed itself and the frost grew keener.
Another opportunity will present itself I'm sure, but not where I might be identified with my perfect house on wheels and electric bicycle.
I think the best course of action in this instance is inaction—let this business play itself out, at least for the time being.
If what Tymkyn learned was true, the underworld itself was at war.
A man in a robe hurried down the hall as the beast battered itself against the weakening cell.
She looked up, shocked to see Sasha standing over them, his sharp gaze on the creature preparing itself for a second attack.
"Let's just leave it alone and let it work itself out," she said with a sigh as she snuggled against him.
The PMF was the only party standing while the government tore itself apart.
The city had struggled through the drabness of poverty and joblessness in an effort to raise itself from the ashes of long-dead industries.
And advances in drip irrigation, which itself isn't exactly new but is becoming far more widespread and ever more efficient, allows crops to be grown with massively less water.
No one I knew of had ever seriously considered the possibility that without any conflict, treaty, war, or even a coin toss, the Soviet Union would simply vote itself into nonexistence in 1991.
Helen Keller's letters are important, not only as a supplementary story of her life, but as a demonstration of her growth in thought and expression--the growth which in itself has made her distinguished.
Is it possible for the College to accommodate itself to these unprecedented conditions, so as to enable me to pursue my studies at Radcliffe?
This in itself is a great comment on the difference between Laura Bridgman and Helen Keller.
The explanation of the fact was unimportant compared to the fact itself and the need of hurrying on.
Miss Keller's education, however, is so fundamentally a question of language teaching that it rather includes the problems of the deaf than limits itself to the deaf alone.
She got the language from the language itself, and this is, next to hearing the language spoken, the way for any one to get a foreign tongue, more vital and, in the end, easier than our schoolroom method of beginning with the grammar.
When she was at the Wright-Humason School in New York, Dr. Humason tried to improve her voice, not only her word pronunciation, but the voice itself, and gave her lessons in tone and vocal exercises.
It shows how the child-mind gathers into itself words it has heard, and how they lurk there ready to come out when the key that releases the spring is touched.
A lake like this is never smoother than at such a time; and the clear portion of the air above it being, shallow and darkened by clouds, the water, full of light and reflections, becomes a lower heaven itself so much the more important.
It was Homer's requiem; itself an Iliad and Odyssey in the air, singing its own wrath and wanderings.
I had this advantage, at least, in my mode of life, over those who were obliged to look abroad for amusement, to society and the theatre, that my life itself was become my amusement and never ceased to be novel.
If you told him that such a one was coming, he did as if he thought that anything so grand would expect nothing of himself, but take all the responsibility on itself, and let him be forgotten still.
My auxiliaries are the dews and rains which water this dry soil, and what fertility is in the soil itself, which for the most part is lean and effete.
On land only the grass and trees wave, but the water itself is rippled by the wind.
Though the woodchoppers have laid bare first this shore and then that, and the Irish have built their sties by it, and the railroad has infringed on its border, and the ice-men have skimmed it once, it is itself unchanged, the same water which my youthful eyes fell on; all the change is in me.
And gradually from week to week the character of each tree came out, and it admired itself reflected in the smooth mirror of the lake.
But the ice itself is the object of most interest, though you must improve the earliest opportunity to study it.
Little did the dusky children think that the puny slip with its two eyes only, which they stuck in the ground in the shadow of the house and daily watered, would root itself so, and outlive them, and house itself in the rear that shaded it, and grown man's garden and orchard, and tell their story faintly to the lone wanderer a half-century after they had grown up and died--blossoming as fair, and smelling as sweet, as in that first spring.
The soil is blanched and accursed there, and before that becomes necessary the earth itself will be destroyed.
They said that a gentleman farmer, who was behind the scenes, wanted to double his money, which, as I understood, amounted to half a million already; but in order to cover each one of his dollars with another, he took off the only coat, ay, the skin itself, of Walden Pond in the midst of a hard winter.
No wonder that the earth expresses itself outwardly in leaves, it so labors with the idea inwardly.
The very globe continually transcends and translates itself, and becomes winged in its orbit.
The whole tree itself is but one leaf, and rivers are still vaster leaves whose pulp is intervening earth, and towns and cities are the ova of insects in their axils.
It is wonderful how rapidly yet perfectly the sand organizes itself as it flows, using the best material its mass affords to form the sharp edges of its channel.
This generation inclines a little to congratulate itself on being the last of an illustrious line; and in Boston and London and Paris and Rome, thinking of its long descent, it speaks of its progress in art and science and literature with satisfaction.
The government itself, which is only the mode which the people have chosen to execute their will, is equally liable to be abused and perverted before the people can act through it.
But it is the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil.
If there were one who lived wholly without the use of money, the State itself would hesitate to demand it of him.
It must help itself; do as I do.
But now this head was swaying helplessly with the uneven movements of the bearers, and the cold listless gaze fixed itself upon nothing.
Prince Andrew was silent, but the princess noticed the ironical and contemptuous look that showed itself on his face.
Just facing it, on the crest of the opposite hill, the village of Schon Grabern could be seen, and in three places to left and right the French troops amid the smoke of their campfires, the greater part of whom were evidently in the village itself and behind the hill.
The troops of the left flank, infantry and hussars alike, felt that the commander did not himself know what to do, and this irresolution communicated itself to the men.
So her future shaped itself in Mademoiselle Bourienne's head at the very time she was talking to Anatole about Paris.
It looked as if by that slight motion the army itself was expressing its joy at the approach of the Emperors.
It seemed as though not the trumpeters were playing, but as if the army itself, rejoicing at the Emperors' approach, had naturally burst into music.
He felt that this nearness by itself made up to him for the day he had lost.
In Wischau itself, a petty German town, Rostov saw the Emperor again.
And then that happy moment, that Toulon for which he had so long waited, presents itself to him at last.
The quiet home life and peaceful happiness of Bald Hills presented itself to him.
His father's nature showed itself in Pierre.
He firmly believed in the possibility of the brotherhood of men united in the aim of supporting one another in the path of virtue, and that is how Freemasonry presented itself to him.
"Go!" he repeated, amazed at himself and glad to see the look of confusion and fear that showed itself on Prince Vasili's face.
The trench itself was the room, in which the lucky ones, such as the squadron commander, had a board, lying on piles at the end opposite the entrance, to serve as a table.
How are you, how are you? he called out, still in the same voice as in the regiment, but Rostov noticed sadly that under this habitual ease and animation some new, sinister, hidden feeling showed itself in the expression of Denisov's face and the intonations of his voice.
An expression of annoyance showed itself for a moment on his face on first recognizing Rostov.
The crowd unexpectedly found itself so close to the Emperors that Rostov, standing in the front row, was afraid he might be recognized.
He did not think of doubting Freemasonry itself, but suspected that Russian Masonry had taken a wrong path and deviated from its original principles.
At that meeting he was struck for the first time by the endless variety of men's minds, which prevents a truth from ever presenting itself identically to two persons.
He tried equally to avoid thinking about his wife, and about Natasha and Prince Andrew; and again everything seemed to him insignificant in comparison with eternity; again the question: for what? presented itself; and he forced himself to work day and night at masonic labors, hoping to drive away the evil spirit that threatened him.
He saw the whips in their red caps galloping along the edge of the ravine, he even saw the hounds, and was expecting a fox to show itself at any moment on the ryefield opposite.
Apart from the advantage he derived from Anatole, the very process of dominating another's will was in itself a pleasure, a habit, and a necessity to Dolokhov.
Evidently this question presented itself to her mind for the first time and she did not know how to answer it.
At the entrance to the Arbat Square an immense expanse of dark starry sky presented itself to his eyes.
The first to speak was General Armfeldt who, to meet the difficulty that presented itself, unexpectedly proposed a perfectly new position away from the Petersburg and Moscow roads.
A child knocks itself and runs at once to the arms of its mother or nurse to have the aching spot rubbed or kissed, and it feels better when this is done.
Whatever worldly baseness presented itself to him, he said to himself:
This fire was already burning itself out.
"Call Andrew!" he said suddenly, and a childish, timid expression of doubt showed itself on his face as he spoke.
Many of them were punished, some sent to Siberia, many died of cold and hunger on the road, many returned of their own accord, and the movement died down of itself just as it had sprung up, without apparent reason.
She lay on the sofa with her face to the wall, fingering the buttons of the leather cushion and seeing nothing but that cushion, and her confused thoughts were centered on one subject--the irrevocability of death and her own spiritual baseness, which she had not suspected, but which had shown itself during her father's illness.
When she had taken leave of him and remained alone she suddenly felt her eyes filling with tears, and then not for the first time the strange question presented itself to her: did she love him?
As often occurs with old men, it was only after some seconds that the impression produced by Prince Andrew's face linked itself up with Kutuzov's remembrance of his personality.
He was not occupied with the question of what to sacrifice for; the fact of sacrificing in itself afforded him a new and joyous sensation.
On the twenty-fourth of August the battle of the Shevardino Redoubt was fought, on the twenty-fifth not a shot was fired by either side, and on the twenty-sixth the battle of Borodino itself took place.
The Russian army, they say, in its retreat from Smolensk sought out for itself the best position for a general engagement and found such a position at Borodino.
To anyone who looks at the field of Borodino without thinking of how the battle was actually fought, this position, protected by the river Kolocha, presents itself as obvious for an army whose object was to prevent an enemy from advancing along the Smolensk road to Moscow.
Glory, the good of society, love of a woman, the Fatherland itself--how important these pictures appeared to me, with what profound meaning they seemed to be filled!
For me tomorrow means this: a Russian army of a hundred thousand and a French army of a hundred thousand have met to fight, and the thing is that these two hundred thousand men will fight and the side that fights more fiercely and spares itself least will win.
His eyes grew dim, he moved forward, glanced round at a chair (which seemed to place itself under him), and sat down on it before the portrait.
Let life go on in it unhindered and let it defend itself, it will do more than if you paralyze it by encumbering it with remedies.
All this was vivid, majestic, and unexpected; but what impressed Pierre most of all was the view of the battlefield itself, of Borodino and the hollows on both sides of the Kolocha.
And suddenly a new unexpected memory from that realm of pure and loving childhood presented itself to him.
And he fell back into that artificial realm of imaginary greatness, and again--as a horse walking a treadmill thinks it is doing something for itself--he submissively fulfilled the cruel, sad, gloomy, and inhuman role predestined for him.
But however small the units it takes, we feel that to take any unit disconnected from others, or to assume a beginning of any phenomenon, or to say that the will of many men is expressed by the actions of any one historic personage, is in itself false.
Moment by moment the event is imperceptibly shaping itself, and at every moment of this continuous, uninterrupted shaping of events the commander-in-chief is in the midst of a most complex play of intrigues, worries, contingencies, authorities, projects, counsels, threats, and deceptions and is continually obliged to reply to innumerable questions addressed to him, which constantly conflict with one another.
"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.
And now a picture of a solemn meeting of the lodge presented itself to his mind.
I want to understand what was revealing itself to me in my dream.
"But perhaps that's my shirt on the table," he thought, "and that's my legs, and that is the door, but why is it always stretching and drawing itself out, and 'piti-piti-piti' and 'ti-ti' and 'piti-piti-piti'...?
He felt awed, and no clear picture presented itself to his mind.
He only saw how the workman suddenly sank down on the cords that held him, how blood showed itself in two places, how the ropes slackened under the weight of the hanging body, and how the workman sat down, his head hanging unnaturally and one leg bent under him.
As always happens when traveling, Princess Mary thought only of the journey itself, forgetting its object.
But we need only penetrate to the essence of any historic event--which lies in the activity of the general mass of men who take part in it--to be convinced that the will of the historic hero does not control the actions of the mass but is itself continually controlled.
At the council at Fili the prevailing thought in the minds of the Russian commanders was the one naturally suggesting itself, namely, a direct retreat by the Nizhni road.
Though the condition and numbers of the French army were unknown to the Russians, as soon as that change occurred the need of attacking at once showed itself by countless signs.
But by the time this letter, which proved that the real relation of the forces had already made itself felt in Petersburg, was dispatched, Kutuzov had found himself unable any longer to restrain the army he commanded from attacking and a battle had taken place.
The former slackness which had shown itself even in his eyes was now replaced by an energetic readiness for action and resistance.
It will fall of itself when ripe, but if picked unripe the apple is spoiled, the tree is harmed, and your teeth are set on edge.
To the left of the road between Mikulino and Shamshevo there were large forests, extending in some places up to the road itself though in others a mile or more back from it.
The horses that had previously been invisible could now be seen to their very tails, and a watery light showed itself through the bare branches.
While imprisoned in the shed Pierre had learned not with his intellect but with his whole being, by life itself, that man is created for happiness, that happiness is within him, in the satisfaction of simple human needs, and that all unhappiness arises not from privation but from superfluity.
But well as he knew it, Pierre now listened to that tale as to something new, and the quiet rapture Karataev evidently felt as he told it communicated itself also to Pierre.
And Pierre's soul was dimly but joyfully filled not by the story itself but by its mysterious significance: by the rapturous joy that lit up Karataev's face as he told it, and the mystic significance of that joy.
That aim was attained in the first place of itself, as the French ran away, and so it was only necessary not to stop their flight.
But at the instant when it seemed that the incomprehensible was revealing itself to her a loud rattle of the door handle struck painfully on her ears.
But besides this, since the exhaustion and enormous diminution of the army caused by the rapidity of the advance had become evident, another reason for slackening the pace and delaying presented itself to Kutuzov.
This longing to distinguish themselves, to maneuver, to overthrow, and to cut off showed itself particularly whenever the Russians stumbled on the French army.
The French perished from the conditions to which the Russian army was itself exposed.
That search for the aim of life had not merely disappeared temporarily--he felt that it no longer existed for him and could not present itself again.
He had equipped himself with a mental telescope and looked into remote space, where petty worldliness hiding itself in misty distance had seemed to him great and infinite merely because it was not clearly seen.
And by chance an escape from this dangerous position presents itself in the form of an aimless and senseless expedition to Africa.
But as soon as the necessity for a general European war presented itself he appeared in his place at the given moment and, uniting the nations of Europe, led them to the goal.
If the purpose of food is nourishment and the purpose of marriage is the family, the whole question resolves itself into not eating more than one can digest, and not having more wives or husbands than are needed for the family--that is, one wife or one husband.
These are the instinctive, plain, and most legitimate questions humanity asks itself when it encounters the monuments and tradition of that period.
According to this view the power of historical personages, represented as the product of many forces, can no longer, it would seem, be regarded as a force that itself produces events.
In their exposition, an historic character is first the product of his time, and his power only the resultant of various forces, and then his power is itself a force producing events.
No command ever appears spontaneously, or itself covers a whole series of occurrences; but each command follows from another, and never refers to a whole series of events but always to one moment only of an event.
The noncommissioned officers (of whom there are fewer) perform the action itself less frequently than the soldiers, but they already give commands.
The commander-in-chief never takes direct part in the action itself, but only gives general orders concerning the movement of the mass of the troops.
Restoring the essential condition of relation between those who command and those who execute, we find that by the very nature of the case those who command take the smallest part in the action itself and that their activity is exclusively directed to commanding.
Without such justification there would be no reply to the simplest question that presents itself when examining each historical event.
Wherever the ship may go, the rush of water which neither directs nor increases its movement foams ahead of it, and at a distance seems to us not merely to move of itself but to govern the ship's movement also.
The subject for history is not man's will itself but our presentation of it.
In actual life each historic event, each human action, is very clearly and definitely understood without any sense of contradiction, although each event presents itself as partly free and partly compulsory.
Religion, the common sense of mankind, the science of jurisprudence, and history itself understand alike this relation between necessity and freedom.
In the first case, if inevitability were possible without freedom we should have reached a definition of inevitability by the laws of inevitability itself, that is, a mere form without content.
But just as the subject of every science is the manifestation of this unknown essence of life while that essence itself can only be the subject of metaphysics, even the manifestation of the force of free will in human beings in space, in time, and in dependence on cause forms the subject of history, while free will itself is the subject of metaphysics.
But when truth conquered, theology established itself just as firmly on the new foundation.
Exhaustion made itself known and her head nodded.
I planned to let her game play itself out, but I don't want to see any bloodshed.
If his week was any indication, this was not about to fix itself as easily as the portal shutting out his assassins.
She had a beautiful apartment, a wardrobe, a pantry that magically restocked itself every time she left the place.
An image not of her own creation pushed itself into her mind.
The beast across the hall roared and threw itself against its prison.
The cell repaired itself until it stood straight again.
The beast within continued to throw itself at it, ceasing finally when it saw the prison had been reinforced.
The pterodactyl dropped and caught itself, coasting in the sea breeze.
The jaguar launched itself at the child, and Toby.s scream shattered the quiet morning as its jaw clamped on his arm.
Toby began to panic and pull, and the jaguar lowered itself farther to the ground, planting its back legs and jerking the boy towards the forest.
She rested against the door, jarred when the flash of a grey knife crossed inches before her eyes, followed by a muted thunk as the weapon buried itself in the door.
The scene would repeat itself several days in a row, whenever one of the sisters tracked her down.
He intended for the problem to right itself in his absence, once she adjusted.
"Qatwal has always been full of itself, but they may still aid you," Mansr said.
The connection between them flowed with hot energy, the planet's life form itself bonding the two of them together at their touch.
Everything else would work itself out.
The thought that they had no water on the planet itself had never occurred to her.
Suddenly, a dark form launched itself from behind a group of boulders onto her path.
The meds in her system, the weakness from her injury, the night itself was too much for her to digest fully.
The helicopter righted itself fast, and she saw the parachute Brady had been trying to release by smashing his fist against the control box in the ceiling.
His shove almost drove her to her knees again. She steadied herself and looked up in time to see him disappear into the jungle. Fear made her heart pound. The strange path he'd been following appeared ahead of her, revealing itself only a few steps at a time. She started at a walk and quickened to a jog, making sure the path wouldn't close and trip her. The path kept up with her, and she ran.
The cut healed itself in seconds.
The concerned look on Randy Byrne's face told Dean that Cynthia's action, while not of itself so unusual, was totally out of character for the boy's mother.
The first arrow planted itself firmly in the rump of Sirian's spirited grey.
The beast itself told her thus.
It took a decade or two for the new medium to be seen in light of itself, not just in terms of what it displaced.
By comparison, if a country has 99 percent of the people working in agriculture—if it is barely feeding itself, even with everyone working at that—then it is living at a subsistence level, the very definition of poverty.
Weaponized famine occurs when hunger itself is used to gain a political or military end.
Add to that how food itself is changing, our food choices change, our lifestyles change, and all along the way we are aging.
While agriculture itself is a technology, it is, in its most basic form, extremely low tech.
GMO could make this a crop that Africa could easily use to feed itself, gain food independence, and maybe even export.
If it were a person, it still couldn't even order a beer to toast itself for all it has done in such a short time.
Meanwhile, the city itself was deserted.
Lana, you know enough about the PMF to know they're the only force—perhaps in the world—with the ability to survive the government tearing itself apart.
Much later, in the darkest part of the night, Dean's mind was creating picture stories to amuse itself while his body lay in frozen and unmoving slumber like a fallen mannequin.
