Just as horses shy and snort and gather about a dead horse, so the inmates of the house and strangers crowded into the drawing room round the coffin--the Marshal, the village Elder, peasant women--and all with fixed and frightened eyes, crossing themselves, bowed and kissed the old prince's cold and stiffened hand.
You're only joking, I'm afraid-- Just wait till I am bigger.

In such transparent and seemingly bottomless water, reflecting the clouds, I seemed to be floating through the air as in a balloon, and their swimming impressed me as a kind of flight or hovering, as if they were a compact flock of birds passing just beneath my level on the right or left, their fins, like sails, set all around them.

The word kumbaya appears in this book only once, and you just saw it.
But just because it is an old dream, doesn't mean it is an impossible one.
Wait--just a word!
He was answered by a voice which informed him of the resolution just arrived at.
Women's fuss! muttered Alpatych to himself and started on his journey, looking round at the fields of yellow rye and the still- green, thickly growing oats, and at other quite black fields just being plowed a second time.
I just wonder what his angle is.
Just above them, and almost on a level with their platform, were banks of rolling clouds which constantly shifted position and changed color.

Not just rulers, either.

Well, Prince, so Genoa and Lucca are now just family estates of the Buonapartes.
Just then a closed carriage and another with a hood drove up to the porch.
"Now then, niece!" he exclaimed, waving to Natasha the hand that had just struck a chord.
"What were you thinking about just now, Nicholas?" inquired Natasha.
There an old maidservant was grumbling at a young girl who stood panting, having just run in through the cold from the serfs' quarters.
That's just how she started and just how she came up smiling timidly when all this happened before," thought Natasha, "and in just the same way I thought there was something lacking in her."
I am just finishing the design.
Of course I do, I remember his teeth as if I had just seen them.
Just like a boy!
He comes in, just in the shape of a man, like an officer--comes in and sits down to table with her.
It was lucky the maids ran in just then...
Sonya had not seen anything, she was just wanting to blink and to get up when she heard Natasha say, "Of course she will!"
In Moscow Princess Mary had no one to talk to, no one to whom to confide her sorrow, and much sorrow fell to her lot just then.
Shinshin, lowering his voice, began to tell the count of some intrigue of Kuragin's in Moscow, and Natasha tried to overhear it just because he had said she was "charmante."
She smiled just as he was doing, gazing straight into his eyes.
"One word, just one, for God's sake!" cried Anatole.
"Natalie, just a word, only one!" he kept repeating, evidently not knowing what to say and he repeated it till Helene came up to them.
Don't talk nonsense, just listen! said Natasha, with momentary vexation.
"Good day, your excellency!" he said, again holding out his hand to Anatole who had just come in.
Ermolov, Kaysarov, and Toll, who had just arrived, sat down on this bench.
The first time the young foreigner allowed himself to reproach her, she lifted her beautiful head and, half turning to him, said firmly: That's just like a man--selfish and cruel!
Just then the lady companion who lived with Helene came in to announce that His Highness was in the ballroom and wished to see her.
"To be a soldier, just a soldier!" thought Pierre as he fell asleep, "to enter communal life completely, to be imbued by what makes them what they are.
Though this news was being concealed from the inhabitants, the officials--the heads of the various government departments--knew that Moscow would soon be in the enemy's hands, just as Count Rostopchin himself knew it, and to escape personal responsibility they had all come to the governor to ask how they were to deal with their various departments.
But despite her grief, or perhaps just because of it, she took on herself all the difficult work of directing the storing and packing of their things and was busy for whole days.
"Oh, what sleep-?" said the countess, waking up just as she was dropping into a doze.
I see you were right, but just take out the top one.
The church bells everywhere were ringing for service, just as usual on Sundays.
Just unload one or two carts.
Just then the countess came in from the sitting room with a weary and dissatisfied expression.
I have just been told that nothing is ready yet.
It no longer seemed strange to them but on the contrary it seemed the only thing that could be done, just as a quarter of an hour before it had not seemed strange to anyone that the wounded should be left behind and the goods carted away but that had seemed the only thing to do.

Just wait a minute, sir.

Just when Pierre snatched at and struck up the pistol Makar Alexeevich at last got his fingers on the trigger, there was a deafening report, and all were enveloped in a cloud of smoke.
Natasha, pale, with a fixed look, was sitting on the bench under the icons just where she had sat down on arriving and paid no attention to her father's words.
For just one moment I didn't look after you...
Just once, looking into those eyes to say...
With a rapid but careful movement Natasha drew nearer to him on her knees and, taking his hand carefully, bent her face over it and began kissing it, just touching it lightly with her lips.
"Forgive me for what I ha-ve do-ne!" faltered Natasha in a scarcely audible, broken whisper, and began kissing his hand more rapidly, just touching it with her lips.
We ran out just as we were....
He ran round to the other side of the lodge and was about to dash into that part of it which was still standing, when just above his head he heard several voices shouting and then a cracking sound and the ring of something heavy falling close beside him.
"She is bringing me my daughter whom I have just saved from the flames," said he.
"You are speaking of the poor countess?" said Anna Pavlovna, coming up just then.
I raise fervent prayers to Heaven that the Almighty may exalt the race of the just, and mercifully fulfill the desires of Your Majesty.

The governor's wife led him up to a tall and very stout old lady with a blue headdress, who had just finished her game of cards with the most important personages of the town.
When Rostov entered the room, the princess dropped her eyes for an instant, as if to give the visitor time to greet her aunt, and then just as Nicholas turned to her she raised her head and met his look with shining eyes.
I saw him lying on a bed," said she, making a gesture with her hand and a lifted finger at each detail, "and that he had his eyes closed and was covered just with a pink quilt, and that his hands were folded," she concluded, convincing herself that the details she had just seen were exactly what she had seen in the mirror.
Sonya was softened, excited, and touched by all that had occurred that day, especially by the mysterious fulfillment she had just seen of her vision.
In another moment Davout would have realized that he was doing wrong, but just then the adjutant had come in and interrupted him.
And indeed he only had to lie down, to fall asleep like a stone, and he only had to shake himself, to be ready without a moment's delay for some work, just as children are ready to play directly they awake.
He liked to talk and he talked well, adorning his speech with terms of endearment and with folk sayings which Pierre thought he invented himself, but the chief charm of his talk lay in the fact that the commonest events--sometimes just such as Pierre had witnessed without taking notice of them--assumed in Karataev's a character of solemn fitness.
Sometimes Pierre, struck by the meaning of his words, would ask him to repeat them, but Platon could never recall what he had said a moment before, just as he never could repeat to Pierre the words of his favorite song: native and birch tree and my heart is sick occurred in it, but when spoken and not sung, no meaning could be got out of it.
And so it was: in Sonya's place sat Natasha who had just come in noiselessly.
But just when he was clumsily creeping toward the door, that dreadful something on the other side was already pressing against it and forcing its way in.
The discovery of these laws is only possible when we have quite abandoned the attempt to find the cause in the will of some one man, just as the discovery of the laws of the motion of the planets was possible only when men abandoned the conception of the fixity of the earth.
Just as it is impossible to say when it was decided to abandon Moscow, so it is impossible to say precisely when, or by whom, it was decided to move to Tarutino.
I haven't time just now, replied Ermolov, and left the hut.
"You think he went off just by chance?" said a comrade, who was on the staff that evening, to the officer of the Horse Guards, referring to Ermolov.
A damp dull autumn morning was just dawning.
They disappeared into the forest, and Count Orlov-Denisov, having seen Grekov off, returned, shivering from the freshness of the early dawn and excited by what he had undertaken on his own responsibility, and began looking at the enemy camp, now just visible in the deceptive light of dawn and the dying campfires.
One desperate, frightened yell from the first French soldier who saw the Cossacks, and all who were in the camp, undressed and only just waking up, ran off in all directions, abandoning cannons, muskets, and horses.
Danger, cannon balls, and bullets were just what he needed in his angry mood.
"That's how everything is done with us, all topsy-turvy!" said the Russian officers and generals after the Tarutino battle, letting it be understood that some fool there is doing things all wrong but that we ourselves should not have done so, just as people speak today.
But if the aim of the battle was what actually resulted and what all the Russians of that day desired--to drive the French out of Russia and destroy their army--it is quite clear that the battle of Tarutino, just because of its incongruities, was exactly what was wanted at that stage of the campaign.
And just at this time he obtained the tranquillity and ease of mind he had formerly striven in vain to reach.
Just as Pierre reached the door, the corporal who had offered him a pipe the day before came up to it with two soldiers.
Moreover, just as Pierre was speaking a sharp rattle of drums was suddenly heard from both sides.
Just look at the crowds!...
Just see what the blackguards have looted....
Just look, there's no end to it.
Lying on his bed during those sleepless nights he did just what he reproached those younger generals for doing.
He imagined all sorts of possible contingencies, just like the younger men, but with this difference, that he saw thousands of contingencies instead of two or three and based nothing on them.
But, just what did the genewal tell you?
What a wogue--it's just as I thought, said Denisov to the esaul.
"But why are you angry?" remonstrated Tikhon, "just as if I'd never seen your Frenchmen!
He was highly delighted with what he saw and experienced in the army, but at the same time it always seemed to him that the really heroic exploits were being performed just where he did not happen to be.
But if they did catch me they'd string me up to an aspen tree, and with all your chivalry just the same.
And to all Denisov's persuasions, Petya replied that he too was accustomed to do everything accurately and not just anyhow, and that he never considered personal danger.
And Petya gave the Cossack a detailed account not only of his ride but also of his object, and why he considered it better to risk his life than to act "just anyhow."
Some fellows do things just anyhow, without preparation, and then they're sorry for it afterwards.
"Just so," said the Cossack.
She was terrified by his illness, and yet that was just what she needed.
He says his hand is just made for a baby's seat.
From broken remarks about Natasha and his father, from the emotion with which Pierre spoke of that dead father, and from the careful, reverent tenderness with which Natasha spoke of him, the boy, who was only just beginning to guess what love is, derived the notion that his father had loved Natasha and when dying had left her to his friend.
Only you need not have bought me this, she added, unable to suppress a smile as she gazed admiringly at a gold comb set with pearls, of a kind then just coming into fashion.
Just as she needed to work off her spleen so she had sometimes to exercise her still-existing faculty of thinking--and the pretext for that was a game of patience.
The countess had long wished for such a box, but as she did not want to cry just then she glanced indifferently at the portrait and gave her attention chiefly to the box for cards.
I told them just one thing in Petersburg.
That's just what I said to him, put in Nicholas, who fancied he really had said it.
Little Nicholas, who had just waked up in a cold perspiration, sat up in bed and gazed before him with wide-open eyes.
Undoubtedly some relation exists between all who live contemporaneously, and so it is possible to find some connection between the intellectual activity of men and their historical movements, just as such a connection may be found between the movements of humanity and commerce, handicraft, gardening, or anything else you please.
But why did it not react on Louis XIV or on Louis XV--why should it react just on Louis XVI?
The theory seems irrefutable just because the act of transference of the people's will cannot be verified, for it never occurred.
Amid a long series of unexecuted orders of Napoleon's one series, for the campaign of 1812, was carried out--not because those orders differed in any way from the other, unexecuted orders but because they coincided with the course of events that led the French army into Russia; just as in stencil work this or that figure comes out not because the color was laid on from this side or in that way, but because it was laid on from all sides over the figure cut in the stencil.
Why don't we go out for supper tonight - just us and the kids?
I just wondered how you felt about him hiding things from you.
Just about time I think the two of you are making progress, something like this comes up.
I just thought it would be fun for the man to tell the wife this for once.
Alex didn't know about her fear of flying and she'd just as soon he didn't learn.
I just want it to be healthy.
Let's just leave it at that.
I just didn't see any point in spending money on new clothes when my old ones still had a lot of wear in them.
It's just a veterinary clinic.
I guess it's just something different - something we aren't used to yet.
I just thought it was because he was so good looking.
If this was what defined a vacation away from home, she'd just as soon stay at home.
It was all just good clean fun.
For a minute there, I was ready to do just that.
I'm just a country hick myself.
We just found out.
He just turned twenty-one and he thinks he is a man now.
I just wish you'd stop hiding everything from me.
Nothing. I was just thinking about technology.
You know, I just thought of something.
She was just surprised by what was in the envelope.
We pop some popcorn and drink some eggnog - just enjoy each other.
Her fingers searched and found the door handle - just in case.
It's just not my style.
Are you just getting back?
"I don't know why you didn't just undress me when you put me in bed," she said.
Some people just put more effort into distinguishing right from wrong than others.
Of course, he was just a kid.
Considering the information Katie had just disclosed, it wasn't surprising that he wanted to be in control - or that he had chosen a wife who asked few questions.
I'll just have to take naps while she's asleep.
Just keep thinking that... and praying.
Yeah, I'm just tired, and my throat is itching this morning.
She just keeps getting worse!
She was right, of course, but having mama stand there watching her suffer was just as upsetting for Destiny.
Just take care of yourself.
She was right, of course, but having mama stand there watching her suffer was just as upsetting for Destiny.
I just got a call from the doctor.
He's always been secretive, and whenever I ask him, he just tells me it's something I don't want to be involved in.
Then he just makes all the important decisions - and you have no input?
Just because he doesn't ask for or want your help, doesn't mean he doesn't need it.
Just because it upsets me doesn't mean I don't want to know - or that you shouldn't tell me.
Then he got into the buggy again and took the reins, and the horse at once backed away from the tree, turned slowly around, and began to trot down the sandy road which was just visible in the dim light.
But they continued to fall, all together, and the boy and girl had no difficulty in remaining upon the seat, just as they were before.
But don't let us worry over such things, Zeb; we can't help ourselves just now, you know, and I've always been told it's foolish to borrow trouble.
Yet one has just occurred that was even worse than the first.
Just then a man came running into the hall and addressed the Prince after making a low bow.
Just then the man with the star came and stood before the Wizard.
"Nonsense!" said the little man, turning red--although just then a ray of violet sunlight was on his round face.
I am delighted to find humbugs inside the earth, just the same as on top of it.
But I've just had the bad luck to come out of the sky, skip the solid earth, and land lower down than I intended.
There were no stairs in their houses, because they did not need them, but on a level surface they generally walked just as we do.
Just now, my dear, there is not a single warrior in your company.
Please, Mr. Wizard, may I eat just one of the fat little piglets?
He got his satchel from the buggy and, opening it, took out two deadly looking revolvers that made the children shrink back in alarm just to look at.
Just you light out and make for that rock, Jim; and don't waste any time about it, either.
Our friends had a good start and were able to maintain it, for with their eight wings they could go just as fast as could the Gargoyles.
The flames leaped up at once and the bonfire began to smoke and roar and crackle just as the great army of wooden Gargoyles arrived.
Of course; in just a jiffy.
You'll just love the folks in Oz, when you get acquainted.
Just then a loud cackling was heard outside; and, when a servant threw open the door with a low bow, a yellow hen strutted in.
Ozma sprinkled me with a magic powder, and I just had to live.
Just then Dorothy, who had risen early and heard the voices of the animals, ran out to greet her old friends.
"What brought you back?" was the next question, and Dorothy's eye rested on an antlered head hanging on the wall just over the fireplace, and caught its lips in the act of moving.
Just then the girlish Ruler of Oz opened the door and greeted Dorothy with a good-morning kiss.
Just behind the royal standard-bearers came the Princess Ozma in her royal chariot, which was of gold encrusted with emeralds and diamonds set in exquisite designs.
Just then the Scarecrow proposed a race between the Sawhorse and the Cab-horse; and although all the others were delighted at the suggestion the Sawhorse drew back, saying:
"I ought to be a fairy," grumbled Jim, as he slowly drew the buggy home; "for to be just an ordinary horse in a fairy country is to be of no account whatever.
When he returned the Princess looked down the narrow neck of the big ornament and discovered her lost piglet, just as Eureka had said she would.
Just ahead of them were the gates of Hugson's Ranch, and Uncle Hugson now came out and stood with uplifted arms and wide open mouth, staring in amazement.
Just behind the schoolhouse was Mr. Finney's barn.
These children are learning it just as the first people who lived on the earth learned it in the beginning.
Haroun-al-Raschid (Aaron the Just) was the greatest of all the caliphs of Bagdad.
He could see a green open space just beyond; and then the woods seemed to be thicker and darker.
He's just in from the backwoods.
He was dressed plainly, and, with his reddish-brown hair and mud-bespattered face, looked like a hard- working countryman just in from the backwoods.
Just step inside and make believe that you are Dean Swift.
"It looks just like her, doesn't it?" she said.
There was something which she wished very much to know before going home, and so, without thinking, she had leaned over and whispered just three little words.
There was a ship just ready to sail for Corinth, and the captain agreed to take him as a passenger.
He was dressed just as they had seen him when he jumped into the sea.
Just as he spoke, the ant lost its footing and fell to the ground.
Just then a young man stepped up.
When the work was finished, the old fishing boat looked rather odd, with a paddle wheel on each side which dipped just a few inches into the water.
But, as I came to your palace this morning, I kept saying to myself, 'When our lord Al Mansour learns just how it was that I borrowed the gold, I have no doubt that in his kindness of heart he will forgive me the debt.'
At last, just as the blacksmith was in the midst of a stirring song, he rose quietly and went out into the darkness.
I had carried some charcoal to the queen's kitchen and was just starting home.
They were just rising from the table when they heard a great noise in the street.
But all along, they believed they would ultimately prevail—and not just win the war, but also do something epic that would change the course of history for all time.
By the midpoint of the twentieth century, America's dreamers were preoccupied with the future—and not just any old future, but the great and glorious future that seemed inevitable.
Not just a little better, but gloriously and fantastically better.
And not just a path, but a well-lit, eight-lane highway.
So isn't it just possible that it could end ignorance, disease, poverty, hunger, and war?
It is just as engineer and communication technology pioneer John Pierce said, in the quote I offered above: "After growing wildly for years, the field of computing appears to be reaching its infancy."
We don't need our computers to be infinitely fast, just a whole lot faster than they are today.
We don't need bandwidth to be instant, just nearly instant.
We don't need miniaturization to go to infinitely small, just really, really small.
We just lacked these means to do it before.
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.
Today, there are modern-day Da Vincis living in parts of the world where just surviving is a full-time occupation, powerless to develop the gifts they could offer the wider world.
It would just take several hours as opposed to a few minutes.
They will take time to write a great big forum post just for you, a total stranger they will never meet.
In our modern age, people disagree not just in terms of values they apply to knowledge, but they disagree on actual pieces of knowledge.
We will just sit back and let the machines sort it all out.
And not just where do they go, but where is it that people drive the farthest to get to?
In 1916, the number of cases just in New York City was reported to be nine thousand.
And then we come to Greece, the home of Hippocrates, the "Father of Modern Medicine," who left us not just the oath that bears his name but also a corpus of roughly sixty medical texts based on his teaching.
So these doctors were perhaps just as brilliant as those who have come since.
Or maybe smart old people just direct that energy to crosswords and it is not the crosswords doing the job at all ...
Finally, this system will not just solve for human illness, but all kinds of other problems as well.
Highly specialized experts are a few keystrokes away and can be hired for just a few minutes or hours at a time.
Consider just a few of the mechanisms by which the Internet promotes trade that otherwise would not have occurred.
Without the Internet, they would just gather dust.
But if each of ten people specialized on just one-tenth of the task, they could together make 48,000, an increase in per-person productivity from one pin a day to 4,800 pins per day.
If you are a farmer and work alone, you can only plant as much land as you can personally plow. You can do just a couple of thousand calories of work a day, consuming only the energy produced by the food you ate.
We just don't know how to capture it efficiently.
Was it some kind of rhetorical flourish, just words that sounded good?
Remember when Janis Joplin sang "Freedom's just another word for 'nothing left to lose'"?
Well, scarcity is just another word for "we don't know how to get it."
First, many things in the physical world that we think of as scarce are not really scarce, just presently beyond our ability to capture.
Because nanites are so small, they require little in the way of raw materials, just a few molecules here and there.
Innovating will become table stakes just to stay in business, and innovation will be used to lower prices, not to increase them.
This pan's nanite coating means to clean it, you just wipe it with a nanite rag that doesn't stain.
So, let's say on average the pan is worth $2,000 to everyone who uses it—all the way from the people who just think it is "cool" to the people who it saves from food poisoning to the people whose lives and houses it saves.
Labor will fall, material costs will fall, materials will be better, stronger, greener, prettier, lighter, more malleable, and just altogether better.
The house of the future won't just be better than the house you have today.
We just want it all to work, to do what it is programmed to do.
And not just chairs, but bread and muskets and plows.
My guess of the thousandfold increase in wealth is just that, a guess.
Such radical redistribution attempts are dangerous games, for the rich are creators of economic opportunity, not just for themselves, but as employers, for society.
But we take it largely for granted—and I think that is just fine.
This will produce extremely specific nutritional information for just you, will add years to your life, and will increase its quality as well.
More than half the hungry people in the world live in just these three nations—nations that are all net food exporters.
Just half a century ago, Americans on average spent more than 20 percent of their income on food.
To me, this makes the problem of hunger that much sadder in the present—to realize that the planet has enough food, just not enough generosity.
In societies where a large percentage of income is necessary just to buy food, having volatile food prices will mean hunger sooner or later, no matter how good the factory jobs are.
Pretty much just goofing off.
The system will see that just the right amounts of black-eyed peas, potatoes, and corn are grown.
Second, some people will still want their food grown the old-fashioned way, just like how I buy heritage meats and heirloom seeds.
Don't limit it just to plants.
The ultimate goal, I submit, is not to optimize just meter by meter but what I call "grape by grape," down to each individual piece of flora and fauna.
I know it sounds all futuristic and expensive now, but what if this technology falls to just a few dollars per acre?

We just don't want to badly enough.
Just when things look dark, well, they actually get worse.
It is true that there is much disagreement over how to achieve these ideals, but the fact remains we want a just society for all.
It was a rhetorical question and, to those posing it, simply a wish—just another way to say, "Why can't we all just get along?"
As American diplomat Ralph Johnson Bunche aptly observed, "There are no warlike people, just warlike leaders."
Just as there is no single cause of war, there will be no single way that war will end.
It is not just that the price of weapons falls and that their destructive ability increases.
You would argue that no other widget on the market can beat the C2000, no nation can ever gain widget superiority if the government just buys the C2000—and so they do.
As we just noted, when nations buy each other's goods, that promotes peace.
Monarchies with any real, significant power are just waiting out the clock.
It was a huge shift in public opinion in which no group benefited financially; if anything, financial interests were aligned against this change, just as with tobacco.
After all, public opinion may just as easily be stirred up in favor of war as against it.
Pause, just for a moment, and consider how profound a force for peace this is: to be able to communicate with anyone, anywhere, instantly.
In just a few years, virtually all phones will be camera phones.
The future German man will not just be a man of books, but a man of character.
It isn't just that we can communicate better but that we actually relate to each other better.
Now, instead of just intellectually engaging with the news, we feel the government brutality, we experience the war, we are electrified by the demonstrations, and we are horrified at the suffering.
In World War I, in the Battle of the Somme, were over a million casualties, and the action advanced the Allied line just seven miles, or about two deaths for every inch of ground.
That is just so alien to me.
Martha Washington understood my signs, and I seldom had any difficulty in making her do just as I wished.
Inspired, perhaps, by Master Gobbler's success, we carried off to the woodpile a cake which the cook had just frosted, and ate every bit of it.
My fingers lingered almost unconsciously on the familiar leaves and blossoms which had just come forth to greet the sweet southern spring.
Whenever anything delighted or interested me she talked it over with me just as if she were a little girl herself.
Just before the Perkins Institution closed for the summer, it was arranged that my teacher and I should spend our vacation at Brewster, on Cape Cod, with our dear friend, Mrs. Hopkins.
I called him Black Beauty, as I had just read the book, and he resembled his namesake in every way, from his glossy black coat to the white star on his forehead.
Just here, perhaps, I had better explain our use of the manual alphabet, which seems to puzzle people who do not know us.
I thought I might just as well describe my pet in order to know it--order, vertebrate; division, quadruped; class, mammalia; genus, felinus; species, cat; individual, Tabby.
I was just beginning to read Caesar's "Gallic War" when I went to my home in Alabama.
Just before the books came, Mr. Gilman had begun to remonstrate with Miss Sullivan on the ground that I was working too hard, and in spite of my earnest protestations, he reduced the number of my recitations.
It is most perplexing and exasperating that just at the moment when you need your memory and a nice sense of discrimination, these faculties take to themselves wings and fly away.
Just then the proctor informs you that the time is up.
I was only just learning to speak, and had previously repeated her name until I could say it perfectly.
It was early in the spring, just after I had learned to speak.
My dear Mrs. Hopkins:-- I have just fed my dear little pigeon.
We have just eaten our breakfast.
One sits on the twig of a tree, just beneath our window, and he fills the air with his glad songs.
The dress is blue like your eyes, and candy is sweet just like your dear little self.
My Dear Mr. Wade:--I have just received a letter from my mother, telling me that the beautiful mastiff puppy you sent me had arrived in Tuscumbia safely.
The tongue is so serviceable a member (taking all sorts of shapes, just as is wanted),--the teeth, the lips, the roof of the mouth, all ready to help, and so heap up the sound of the voice into the solid bits which we call consonants, and make room for the curiously shaped breathings which we call vowels!
Just think of an army of blind people, with guns and cannon!
My Dear Friend, Mr. Krehl:--I have just heard, through Mr. Wade, of your kind offer to buy me a gentle dog, and I want to thank you for the kind thought.
I want you to see baby Tom, the little blind and deaf and dumb child who has just come to our pretty garden.
Mr. Wade is just as dear and good as ever!
I have just finished reading "Ivanhoe."
The next two letters were written just after the death of Mr. John P. Spaulding.
Just think, I shall soon finish my grammar!
She looked as if she had just risen from the foam of the sea, and her loveliness was like a strain of heavenly music.
I have just had some pictures taken, and if they are good, I would like to send one to Mr. Rogers, if you think he would like to have it.
I am working very hard just now.
Just think, she cannot use the manual alphabet!
Perhaps, if you would send a copy of this to the head of the Cambridge School, it might enlighten his mind on a few subjects, on which he seems to be in total darkness just now....
We've just had four lovely dresses made by a French dressmaker.
But Miss Watkins seems to be just the kind of teacher she needs.
A gentleman in Philadelphia has just written to my teacher about a deaf and blind child in Paris, whose parents are Poles.
He had just constructed a boat that could be propelled by a kite with the wind in its favor, and one day he tried experiments to see if he could steer the kite against the wind.
If any one whom she is touching laughs at a joke, she laughs, too, just as if she had heard it.
No one knows, however, just what her sensations are.
It is amusing to read in one of the magazines of 1895 that Miss Keller "has a just and intelligent appreciation of different composers from having literally felt their music, Schumann being her favourite."
For Miss Keller to spell a sentence in the manual alphabet impresses it on her mind just as we learn a thing from having heard it many times and can call back the memory of its sound.
Why, one might just as well say that a two-year-old child converses fluently when he says 'apple give,' or 'baby walk go.'
She has a fine head, and it is set on her shoulders just right.
I have just heard something that surprised me very much.
Just then the nurse brought Helen's little sister into the pump-house, and Helen spelled "baby" and pointed to the nurse.
She learns because she can't help it, just as the bird learns to fly.
It was amusing to see her hold it before her eyes and spell the sentences out on her fingers, just as I had done.
Just then the nurse came into the cistern-house bringing her little sister.
Just then I had no sentences in raised letters which she could understand; but she would sit for hours feeling each word in her book.
Just now she finds it great fun.
We are just back from church.
Of course, you cannot help it, and I love you just as well as if you were the most beautiful creature in the world.
After a moment she added, mournfully, "I fear some people's lives are just like Ginger's."
All day long in their play-time and work-time Miss Sullivan kept spelling into her pupil's hand, and by that Helen Keller absorbed words, just as the child in the cradle absorbs words by hearing thousands of them before he uses one and by associating the words with the occasion of their utterance.
There is, then, a good deal that Miss Sullivan has done for Miss Keller which no other teacher can do in just the same way for any one else.
That is just what the teacher of the deaf child must be, a child ready to play and romp, and interested in all childish things.
It would, I think, be hard to make her feel just how to pronounce DICTIONARY without her erring either toward DICTIONAYRY or DICTION'RY, and, of course the word is neither one nor the other.
The ability to read the lips helps Miss Keller in getting corrections of her pronunciation from Miss Sullivan and others, just as it was the means of her learning to speak at all, but it is rather an accomplishment than a necessity.
Some were red, some white, and others pale pink, and they were just peeping out of the green leaves, as rosy-faced children peep out from their warm beds in wintertime before they are quite willing to get up.
Teacher and I have just returned from our walk.
It was quite early, the sun had not been up very long; the birds were just beginning to sing joyously.
Their fears were well founded, for their long absence had alarmed the king, and he had started out to look for his tardy servants, and just as they were all hidden, he came along slowly, looking on all sides for the fairies.
King Frost frowned and looked very angry at first, and his fairies trembled for fear and cowered still lower in their hiding-places; but just then two little children came dancing through the wood, and though they did not see King Frost or the fairies, they saw the beautiful colour of the leaves, and laughed with delight, and began picking great bunches to take to their mother.
At first King Frost was very angry, and the fairies trembled and crouched lower in their hiding-places, and I do not know what might have happened to them if just then a party of boys and girls had not entered the wood.
The style of the Bible is everywhere in Miss Keller's work, just as it is in the style of most great English writers.
They sang at intervals throughout the night, and were again as musical as ever just before and about dawn.
This is particularly distinct to one standing on the middle of the pond in winter, just after a light snow has fallen, appearing as a clear undulating white line, unobscured by weeds and twigs, and very obvious a quarter of a mile off in many places where in summer it is hardly distinguishable close at hand.
There Nature has woven a natural selvage, and the eye rises by just gradations from the low shrubs of the shore to the highest trees.
Was that a farmer's noon horn which sounded from beyond the woods just now?
I will go with you gladly soon, but I am just concluding a serious meditation.
I will just try these three sentences of Confut-see; they may fetch that state about again.
Why has man just these species of animals for his neighbors; as if nothing but a mouse could have filled this crevice?
Hard green wood just cut, though I used but little of that, answered my purpose better than any other.
I had just sunk my head on this when the bells rung fire, and in hot haste the engines rolled that way, led by a straggling troop of men and boys, and I among the foremost, for I had leaped the brook.
But all I can learn of their conclusions amounts to just this, that "Cato and Brister pulled wool"; which is about as edifying as the history of more famous schools of philosophy.
Early in May, the oaks, hickories, maples, and other trees, just putting out amidst the pine woods around the pond, imparted a brightness like sunshine to the landscape, especially in cloudy days, as if the sun were breaking through mists and shining faintly on the hillsides here and there.
If I were confined to a corner of a garret all my days, like a spider, the world would be just as large to me while I had my thoughts about me.
Law never made men a whit more just; and, by means of their respect for it, even the well-disposed are daily made the agents of injustice.
Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.
As they could not reach me, they had resolved to punish my body; just as boys, if they cannot come at some person against whom they have a spite, will abuse his dog.
He had just entered, wearing an embroidered court uniform, knee breeches, and shoes, and had stars on his breast and a serene expression on his flat face.
Just then another visitor entered the drawing room: Prince Andrew Bolkonski, the little princess' husband.
"Ah, that is just what I tell him!" said she.
Just for a whim of his own, goodness only knows why, he leaves me and locks me up alone in the country.
Even in the best, most friendly and simplest relations of life, praise and commendation are essential, just as grease is necessary to wheels that they may run smoothly.
He is a son of Marya Ivanovna Dolokhova, such a worthy woman, but there, just fancy!
I can just imagine what a funny figure that policeman cut!
Especially just at this age, so dangerous both for girls and boys.
Just fancy: wants to be an hussar.
Just fancy!" said the countess with a gentle smile, looking at Boris and went on, evidently concerned with a thought that always occupied her: "Now you see if I were to be severe with her and to forbid it... goodness knows what they might be up to on the sly" (she meant that they would be kissing), "but as it is, I know every word she utters.
Though what she said was quite just, perhaps for that very reason no one replied, and the four simply looked at one another.
But I'll just tell Mamma how you are behaving with Boris.
(She used the word "diplomat," which was just then much in vogue among the children, in the special sense they attached to it.)
"He is just the same as ever," replied Anna Mikhaylovna, "overflowing with amiability.
It's a burden to him, and Bory's life is only just beginning....
There will just be time.
But before Pierre--who at that moment imagined himself to be Napoleon in person and to have just effected the dangerous crossing of the Straits of Dover and captured London--could pronounce Pitt's sentence, he saw a well-built and handsome young officer entering his room.
Just now they are talking about you and your father.
But I just wish to say, to avoid misunderstandings, that you are quite mistaken if you reckon me or my mother among such people.
What you have just said is good, very good.
Yes, yes; just so!
Just consider my own position now, Peter Nikolaevich...
Then just think what can be done with two hundred and thirty rubles!
It was just the moment before a big dinner when the assembled guests, expecting the summons to zakuska, * avoid engaging in any long conversation but think it necessary to move about and talk, in order to show that they are not at all impatient for their food.
Pierre had come just at dinnertime and was sitting awkwardly in the middle of the drawing room on the first chair he had come across, blocking the way for everyone.
Just see how these nestlings are growing up, and she pointed to the girls.
Natasha, who sat opposite, was looking at Boris as girls of thirteen look at the boy they are in love with and have just kissed for the first time.
*(4) I just ask you that.
"What you said just now was splendid!" said his partner Julie.
Then Nicholas sang a song he had just learned:
Just look at her! exclaimed the countess as she crossed the ballroom, pointing to Natasha.
Just look at the master!
The second princess had just come from the sickroom with her eyes red from weeping and sat down beside Dr. Lorrain, who was sitting in a graceful pose under a portrait of Catherine, leaning his elbow on a table.
The quilt of a high, white feather bed was just visible behind a screen.
Prince Vasili looked questioningly at the princess, but could not make out whether she was considering what he had just said or whether she was simply looking at him.
Anna Mikhaylovna with just the same movement raised her shoulders and eyes, almost closing the latter, sighed, and moved away from the doctor to Pierre.
He lay just under the icons; his large thick hands outside the quilt.
The little princess had grown stouter during this time, but her eyes and her short, downy, smiling lip lifted when she began to speak just as merrily and prettily as ever.
Yes, just the same.
I know you are just like Father.
On October 11, 1805, one of the infantry regiments that had just reached Braunau had halted half a mile from the town, waiting to be inspected by the commander-in-chief.
That's just like you young men, said the regimental commander cooling down a little.
Kutuzov and the Austrian general were talking in low voices and Kutuzov smiled slightly as treading heavily he stepped down from the carriage just as if those two thousand men breathlessly gazing at him and the regimental commander did not exist.
That's just it, friend!
You just sit still and are drawn along.
But at that instant a tall Austrian general in a greatcoat, with the order of Maria Theresa on his neck and a black bandage round his head, who had evidently just arrived, entered quickly, slamming the door.
General Mack has arrived, quite well, only a little bruised just here, he added, pointing with a beaming smile to his head.
Just fancy, he didn't let me win a single cahd, not one cahd.
I put it just here.
"You've only just missed him," said the orderly.
"That money is Denisov's; you took it..." he whispered just above Telyanin's ear.
"You just wait a moment, my dear fellow, and listen," interrupted the staff captain in his deep bass, calmly stroking his long mustache.
Just then Zherkov entered the room.
You look as if you'd just come out of a hot bath.
Just to flutter the nuns a bit.
Just try! said the general, turning to an artillery officer.
"Yes, the ham was just delicious..." answered another with a loud laugh.
He just sends a ball and they think they'll all be killed, a sergeant was saying angrily and reproachfully.
Just see, the German sausage is making tracks, too!
"Just see where it carries to!" a soldier near by said sternly, looking round at the sound.
They're led about just for show! remarked another.
The black, hairy, snub-nosed face of Vaska Denisov, and his whole short sturdy figure with the sinewy hairy hand and stumpy fingers in which he held the hilt of his naked saber, looked just as it usually did, especially toward evening when he had emptied his second bottle; he was only redder than usual.
Just then the commander appeared on the bridge.
Next he thought that his enemy would send the squadron on a desperate attack just to punish him--Rostov.
"There, it's just as I thought," said Rostov to himself.
Rostov did not think what this call for stretchers meant; he ran on, trying only to be ahead of the others; but just at the bridge, not looking at the ground, he came on some sticky, trodden mud, stumbled, and fell on his hands.
"True enough," answered Nesvitski; "two smart fellows could have done the job just as well."
So you've smelt powdah! shouted Vaska Denisov just above his ear.
Why didn't you capture one, just one, marshal for us?
That's just it, my dear fellow.
Then followed other questions just as simple: Was Kutuzov well?
"That's just it," answered Bilibin.
"It's not treachery nor rascality nor stupidity: it is just as at Ulm... it is..."--he seemed to be trying to find the right expression.
Prince Andrew rode up and was just putting his question to a soldier when his attention was diverted by the desperate shrieks of the woman in the vehicle.
He had just remembered his recent encounter with the doctor's wife and the convoy officer.
Just as he was going to open it the sounds ceased, the door opened, and Kutuzov with his eagle nose and puffy face appeared in the doorway.
"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.
Just behind it they came upon some dozens of soldiers, continually replaced by others, who ran from the entrenchment.
But the guns remained loaded, the loopholes in blockhouses and entrenchments looked out just as menacingly, and the unlimbered cannon confronted one another as before.
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.
Lemarrois had just arrived at a gallop with Bonaparte's stern letter, and Murat, humiliated and anxious to expiate his fault, had at once moved his forces to attack the center and outflank both the Russian wings, hoping before evening and before the arrival of the Emperor to crush the contemptible detachment that stood before him.
"Lift it two lines more and it will be just right," cried he in a feeble voice to which he tried to impart a dashing note, ill-suited to his weak figure.
It seemed to Prince Andrew that the officer's remark was just and that really no answer could be made to it.
Turning to his adjutant he ordered him to bring down the two battalions of the Sixth Chasseurs whom they had just passed.
The French had fallen behind, and just as he looked round the first man changed his run to a walk and, turning, shouted something loudly to a comrade farther back.
Just see the smoke!
"Of course, we only just missed one another," said the staff officer, with a smile to Bolkonski.
If he ever thought of Helene, it was just of her beauty and her remarkable skill in appearing silently dignified in society.
The aunt was just speaking of a collection of snuffboxes that had belonged to Pierre's father, Count Bezukhov, and showed them her own box.
But she was just as terribly close to him.
On Helene's name day, a small party of just their own people--as his wife said--met for supper at Prince Vasili's.
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.
Pierre smiled, but his smile showed that he knew it was not the story about Sergey Kuzmich that interested Prince Vasili just then, and Prince Vasili saw that Pierre knew this.
Pierre and Helene still sat talking just as before.
"Come, dear princess," said Mademoiselle Bourienne, "just one more little effort."
"And didn't Hippolyte tell you?" asked Prince Vasili, turning to his son and seizing the little princess' arm as if she would have run away and he had just managed to catch her, "didn't he tell you how he himself was pining for the dear princess, and how she showed him the door?
Him--I just shut my eyes and remember, but Boris...
Her face wore the proud expression of a surgeon who has just performed a difficult operation and admits the public to appreciate his skill.
The Guards, just arrived from Russia, spent the night ten miles from Olmutz and next morning were to come straight to the review, reaching the field at Olmutz by ten o'clock.
Rostov, who had just celebrated his promotion to a cornetcy and bought Denisov's horse, Bedouin, was in debt all round, to his comrades and the sutlers.
In the middle of his story, just as he was saying: "You cannot imagine what a strange frenzy one experiences during an attack," Prince Andrew, whom Boris was expecting, entered the room.
The council of war was just over when Prince Andrew accompanied by Boris arrived at the palace to find Dolgorukov.
"That's just it," interrupted Dolgorukov quickly, laughing.
The Emperor had only just fallen asleep and so Savary had to wait.
Just as in a clock, the result of the complicated motion of innumerable wheels and pulleys is merely a slow and regular movement of the hands which show the time, so the result of all the complicated human activities of 160,000 Russians and French--all their passions, desires, remorse, humiliations, sufferings, outbursts of pride, fear, and enthusiasm--was only the loss of the battle of Austerlitz, the so-called battle of the three Emperors--that is to say, a slow movement of the hand on the dial of human history.
There are many stories of his getting to know an officer in just such a chance way and attaching him to himself!
I thought about him too, just opposite Guryev's house...
"They can't be far off, probably just beyond the stream," he said to the hussar beside him.
"The picket is still on the hill, your excellency, just where it was in the evening," reported Rostov, stooping forward with his hand at the salute and unable to repress the smile of delight induced by his ride and especially by the sound of the bullets.
However far he has walked, whatever strange, unknown, and dangerous places he reaches, just as a sailor is always surrounded by the same decks, masts, and rigging of his ship, so the soldier always has around him the same comrades, the same ranks, the same sergeant major Ivan Mitrich, the same company dog Jack, and the same commanders.
Just then at a distance behind Kutuzov was heard the sound of regiments saluting, and this sound rapidly came nearer along the whole extended line of the advancing Russian columns.
"That is just why I do not begin, sire," said Kutuzov in a resounding voice, apparently to preclude the possibility of not being heard, and again something in his face twitched--"That is just why I do not begin, sire, because we are not on parade and not on the Empress' Field," said clearly and distinctly.
The French were supposed to be a mile and a half away, but had suddenly and unexpectedly appeared just in front of us.
I saw him just as I see you....
They've just finished supper.
Natasha had put on one spurred boot and was just getting her foot into the other.
I just heated a ruler in the fire and pressed it there!
All that ruler business was just nonsense, but we are friends forever.
Why should he not love her now, and even marry her, Rostov thought, but just now there were so many other pleasures and interests before him!
But after a while, just as a jury comes out of its room, the bigwigs who guided the club's opinion reappeared, and everybody began speaking clearly and definitely.
Evidently just before coming to the dinner he had had his hair and whiskers trimmed, which changed his appearance for the worse.
It would be particularly pleasant to him to dishonor my name and ridicule me, just because I have exerted myself on his behalf, befriended him, and helped him.
He was just going to take it when Dolokhov, leaning across, snatched it from his hand and began reading it.
But just at moments when such thoughts occurred to him, he would ask in a particularly calm and absent-minded way, which inspired the respect of the onlookers, Will it be long?
Just you try it on....
The little princess lay supported by pillows, with a white cap on her head (the pains had just left her).
"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.
I'll just finish dealing, and then Ilyushka will come with his chorus.
Come now, just this one more little card!
"Just as I may suppose you to be deluded," said Pierre, with a faint smile.
You do not know Him, but He is here, He is in me, He is in my words, He is in thee, and even in those blasphemous words thou hast just uttered! pronounced the Mason in a stern and tremulous voice.
"The exchange horses have just come," answered the servant.
I said so even at the time when everybody was in raptures about him, when he had just returned from abroad, and when, if you remember, he posed as a sort of Marat at one of my soirees.
The novelty Anna Pavlovna was setting before her guests that evening was Boris Drubetskoy, who had just arrived as a special messenger from the Prussian army and was aide-de-camp to a very important personage.
Have just this moment received by special messenger very joyful news--if it's not false.
Yes, we have gained a victory over Bonaparte, just when I'm not serving.
I have certainly acquired a taste for war, and it is just as well for me; what I have seen during these last three months is incredible.
But as it turns out, just at that moment a third enemy rises before us--namely the Orthodox Russian soldiers, loudly demanding bread, meat, biscuits, fodder, and whatnot!
Just as he went in he saw that the nurse was hiding something from him with a scared look and that Princess Mary was no longer by the cot.
Everywhere preparations were made not for ceremonious welcomes (which he knew Pierre would not like), but for just such gratefully religious ones, with offerings of icons and the bread and salt of hospitality, as, according to his understanding of his master, would touch and delude him.
I experienced just the reverse.
"But that's just the same as myself--they are not others," explained Prince Andrew.
"Come, let's argue then," said Prince Andrew, "You talk of schools," he went on, crooking a finger, "education and so forth; that is, you want to raise him" (pointing to a peasant who passed by them taking off his cap) "from his animal condition and awaken in him spiritual needs, while it seems to me that animal happiness is the only happiness possible, and that is just what you want to deprive him of.
I go to bed after two in the morning, thoughts come and I can't sleep but toss about till dawn, because I think and can't help thinking, just as he can't help plowing and mowing; if he didn't, he would go to the drink shop or fall ill.
Just as I could not stand his terrible physical labor but should die of it in a week, so he could not stand my physical idleness, but would grow fat and die.
When spring came on, the soldiers found a plant just showing out of the ground that looked like asparagus, which, for some reason, they called "Mashka's sweet root."
Despite this destitution, the soldiers and officers went on living just as usual.
But, just because the assistant evidently did not want him to go in, Rostov entered the soldiers' ward.
Just before him, almost across the middle of the passage on the bare floor, lay a sick man, probably a Cossack to judge by the cut of his hair.
Just then a commissariat soldier, a hospital orderly, came in from the next room, marching stiffly, and drew up in front of Rostov.
Who can be more just, more magnanimous than he?
Look at those cramped dead firs, ever the same, and at me too, sticking out my broken and barked fingers just where they have grown, whether from my back or my sides: as they have grown so I stand, and I do not believe in your hopes and your lies.
In 1809 Count Ilya Rostov was living at Otradnoe just as he had done in former years, that is, entertaining almost the whole province with hunts, theatricals, dinners, and music.
Just before the window was a row of pollard trees, looking black on one side and with a silvery light on the other.
"Just once more," said a girlish voice above him which Prince Andrew recognized at once.
Do just come and see what a moon!...
He could not now understand how he could ever even have doubted the necessity of taking an active share in life, just as a month before he had not understood how the idea of leaving the quiet country could ever enter his head.
Just the same as now--I ask you, Count--who will be heads of the departments when everybody has to pass examinations?
He rose, took Prince Andrew by the arm, and went to meet a tall, bald, fair man of about forty with a large open forehead and a long face of unusual and peculiar whiteness, who was just entering.
And it was just this peculiarity of Speranski's mind that particularly attracted Prince Andrew.
Even those members who seemed to be on his side understood him in their own way with limitations and alterations he could not agree to, as what he always wanted most was to convey his thought to others just as he himself understood it.
It was just then that he received a letter from his wife, who implored him to see her, telling him how grieved she was about him and how she wished to devote her whole life to him.
I have just returned from my benefactor, and hasten to write down what I have experienced.
Illuminism is not a pure doctrine, just because it is attracted by social activity and puffed up by pride.
Pierre was just the husband needed for a brilliant society woman.
Now, just one on your throat and another... that'll do!
"Not to marry, but just so," she added.
"Just so, just so," repeated the countess, and shaking all over, she went off into a good humored, unexpected, elderly laugh.
"Just so, just so," repeated the countess, and shaking all over, she went off into a good humored, unexpected, elderly laugh.
You're awfully like me, just such another giggler....
She had washed behind her ears just as carefully, and when she entered her drawing room in her yellow dress, wearing her badge as maid of honor, her old lady's maid was as full of rapturous admiration as the Rostovs' servants had been.
"Ah, here she is, the Queen of Petersburg, Countess Bezukhova," said Peronskaya, indicating Helene who had just entered.
Just look how he treats the ladies!
* "He is all the rage just now."
He had just heard particulars of that morning's sitting of the Council of State opened by the Emperor, and he spoke of it enthusiastically.
Just then Count Bezukhov was announced.
Everything was just as everybody always has it, especially so the general, who admired the apartment, patted Berg on the shoulder, and with parental authority superintended the setting out of the table for boston.
Everything was just as it was everywhere else.
He just came and then left off, left off...
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.
But a fortnight after his departure, to the surprise of those around her, she recovered from her mental sickness just as suddenly and became her old self again, but with a change in her moral physiognomy, as a child gets up after a long illness with a changed expression of face.
After the rapture of meeting, and after that odd feeling of unsatisfied expectation--the feeling that "everything is just the same, so why did I hurry?"--Nicholas began to settle down in his old home world.
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.
But just as Daniel was about to go Natasha came in with rapid steps, not having done up her hair or finished dressing and with her old nurse's big shawl wrapped round her.
Then, unexpectedly, as often happens, the sound of the hunt suddenly approached, as if the hounds in full cry and Daniel ulyulyuing were just in front of them.
A thousand times during that half-hour Rostov cast eager and restless glances over the edge of the wood, with the two scraggy oaks rising above the aspen undergrowth and the gully with its water-worn side and "Uncle's" cap just visible above the bush on his right.
But here Nicholas only saw that something happened to Karay--the borzoi was suddenly on the wolf, and they rolled together down into a gully just in front of them.
But when he saw that the horsemen did not dismount and that the wolf shook herself and ran for safety, Daniel set his chestnut galloping, not at the wolf but straight toward the wood, just as Karay had run to cut the animal off.
For a long time they continued to look at red Rugay who, his arched back spattered with mud and clanking the ring of his leash, walked along just behind "Uncle's" horse with the serene air of a conqueror.
And Natasha felt that this costume, the very one she had regarded with surprise and amusement at Otradnoe, was just the right thing and not at all worse than a swallow-tail or frock coat.
Just as "Uncle's" pickled mushrooms, honey, and cherry brandy had seemed to her the best in the world, so also that song, at that moment, seemed to her the acme of musical delight.
"Uncle" continued to play correctly, carefully, with energetic firmness, looking with a changed and inspired expression at the spot where Anisya Fedorovna had just stood.
"Just a few oats?" said Misha, cheerfully and readily.
If you will be so kind, I'll fix a time and go down to the estate just for a day, and leave my lassies with you.
I don't like it, it's just self-indulgence!
"Natasha!" she said, just audibly.
I couldn't hold them in, my hands grew numb in the sharp frost so that I threw down the reins--'Catch hold yourself, your excellency!' says I, and I just tumbled on the bottom of the sleigh and sprawled there.
Why, she'll rush out more dead than alive just in the things she is wearing; if you delay at all there'll be tears and 'Papa' and 'Mamma,' and she's frozen in a minute and must go back--but you wrap the fur cloak round her first thing and carry her to the sleigh.
She was in just the same position in which Marya Dmitrievna had left her.
But still he pitied Prince Andrew to the point of tears and sympathized with his wounded pride, and the more he pitied his friend the more did he think with contempt and even with disgust of that Natasha who had just passed him in the ballroom with such a look of cold dignity.
Yes, I have just seen him.
Pierre laughed and said it was nonsense for he had just come from the Rostovs'.
The conversation was about Speranski--the news of whose sudden exile and alleged treachery had just reached Moscow.
He thought she would give him her hand as usual; but she, stepping up to him, stopped, breathing heavily, her arms hanging lifelessly just in the pose she used to stand in when she went to the middle of the ballroom to sing, but with quite a different expression of face.
Millions of men, renouncing their human feelings and reason, had to go from west to east to slay their fellows, just as some centuries previously hordes of men had come from the east to the west, slaying their fellows.
The sun was only just appearing from behind the clouds, the air was fresh and dewy.
A French colonel of hussars, who had evidently just left his bed, came riding from the village on a handsome sleek gray horse, accompanied by two hussars.
He had just finished dressing for his ride, and wore a blue uniform, opening in front over a white waistcoat so long that it covered his rotund stomach, white leather breeches tightly fitting the fat thighs of his short legs, and Hessian boots.
His short hair had evidently just been brushed, but one lock hung down in the middle of his broad forehead.
The whole purport of his remarks now was evidently to exalt himself and insult Alexander--just what he had least desired at the commencement of the interview.
Balashev, who was on the alert all through the dinner, replied that just as "all roads lead to Rome," so all roads lead to Moscow: there were many roads, and "among them the road through Poltava, which Charles XII chose."
He had grown, become rosier, had curly dark hair, and, when merry and laughing, quite unconsciously lifted the upper lip of his pretty little mouth just as the little princess used to do.
From among all these parties, just at the time Prince Andrew reached the army, another, a ninth party, was being formed and was beginning to raise its voice.
Just at the time Prince Andrew was living unoccupied at Drissa, Shishkov, the Secretary of State and one of the chief representatives of this party, wrote a letter to the Emperor which Arakcheev and Balashev agreed to sign.
Prince Andrew did not catch what he said and would have passed on, but Chernyshev introduced him to Pfuel, remarking that Prince Andrew was just back from Turkey where the war had terminated so fortunately.
A Russian is self-assured just because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe that anything can be known.
God forbid that he should be humane, should love, or pity, or think of what is just and unjust.
Then came the prayer just received from the Synod--a prayer for the deliverance of Russia from hostile invasion.
Just then Petya came running in from the drawing room.
After standing some time in the gateway, Petya tried to move forward in front of the others without waiting for all the carriages to pass, and he began resolutely working his way with his elbows, but the woman just in front of him, who was the first against whom he directed his efforts, angrily shouted at him:
But in spite of this he continued to struggle desperately forward, and from between the backs of those in front he caught glimpses of an open space with a strip of red cloth spread out on it; but just then the crowd swayed back--the police in front were pushing back those who had pressed too close to the procession: the Emperor was passing from the palace to the Cathedral of the Assumption--and Petya unexpectedly received such a blow on his side and ribs and was squeezed so hard that suddenly everything grew dim before his eyes and he lost consciousness.
Women, women! said Alpatych, puffing and speaking rapidly just as the prince did, and he climbed into the trap.
I am just starting myself.
The cook began running hither and thither in the passage like a frightened hen, just as Alpatych entered.
Just then Ferapontov returned and entered his shop.
Rostov was just mounting to go for a ride round the neighboring villages with Ilyin; he let Lavrushka have another horse and took him along with him.
But such undercurrents still existed among the people and gathered new forces ready to manifest themselves just as strangely, unexpectedly, and at the same time simply, naturally, and forcibly.
Just as Dron was a model village Elder, so Alpatych had not managed the prince's estates for twenty years in vain.
"Now just listen, Dronushka," said he.
"Why don't you speak?" she inquired of a very old man who stood just in front of her leaning on his stick.
Alpatych at a gliding trot, only just managing not to run, kept up with him with difficulty.
We did it just out of foolishness.
It made him angry just because the idea of marrying the gentle Princess Mary, who was attractive to him and had an enormous fortune, had against his will more than once entered his head.
"Whew... whew... whew!" he whistled just audibly as he rode into the yard.
"We were just talking of you," she said with the facility in lying natural to a society woman.
I ask just one thing of you, cousin," she went on, "arrange for me to be taken to Petersburg.
The flogging was only just over, and the executioner was releasing from the flogging bench a stout man with red whiskers, in blue stockings and a green jacket, who was moaning piteously.
The commander-in-chief was putting up there, but just when Pierre arrived he was not in and hardly any of the staff were there--they had gone to the church service.
There's our center, at Borodino, just there, and he pointed to the village in front of them with the white church.
We are just going to the left flank.
"Ah, Kaysarov!" said Boris, addressing him with an unembarrassed smile, "I was just trying to explain our position to the count.
Just then Boris, with his courtierlike adroitness, stepped up to Pierre's side near Kutuzov and in a most natural manner, without raising his voice, said to Pierre, as though continuing an interrupted conversation:
He is unsuitable now, just because he plans out everything very thoroughly and accurately as every German has to.
"I not only understood her, but it was just that inner, spiritual force, that sincerity, that frankness of soul-- that very soul of hers which seemed to be fettered by her body--it was that soul I loved in her... loved so strongly and happily..." and suddenly he remembered how his love had ended.
Yes, our body is just a machine for living, that is all.
The sun, just bursting forth from behind a cloud that had concealed it, was shining, with rays still half broken by the clouds, over the roofs of the street opposite, on the dew- besprinkled dust of the road, on the walls of the houses, on the windows, the fence, and on Pierre's horses standing before the hut.
From the left, over fields and bushes, those large balls of smoke were continually appearing followed by their solemn reports, while nearer still, in the hollows and woods, there burst from the muskets small cloudlets that had no time to become balls, but had their little echoes in just the same way.
"He was here a minute ago but has just gone that way," someone told him, pointing to the right.
On the contrary, just because he happened to be there he thought it one of the least significant parts of the field.
A young round-faced officer, quite a boy still and evidently only just out of the Cadet College, who was zealously commanding the two guns entrusted to him, addressed Pierre sternly.
Napoleon was experiencing a feeling of depression like that of an ever- lucky gambler who, after recklessly flinging money about and always winning, suddenly just when he has calculated all the chances of the game, finds that the more he considers his play the more surely he loses.
"Ah, here he is, my hero!" said Kutuzov to a portly, handsome, dark- haired general who was just ascending the knoll.
The cannon balls flew just as swiftly and cruelly from both sides, crushing human bodies, and that terrible work which was not done by the will of a man but at the will of Him who governs men and worlds continued.
In seeking the laws of historical movement just the same thing happens.
The French army pushed on to Moscow, its goal, its impetus ever increasing as it neared its aim, just as the velocity of a falling body increases as it approaches the earth.
For instance, on the twenty-eighth it is suggested to him to cross to the Kaluga road, but just then an adjutant gallops up from Miloradovich asking whether he is to engage the French or retire.
In reply to his last question Pierre again explained who Makar Alexeevich was and how just before their arrival that drunken imbecile had seized the loaded pistol which they had not had time to recover from him, and begged the officer to let the deed go unpunished.
Do you know I have only just come back!
Perhaps it was just the Cossack, Likhachev, who was sitting under the wagon, but it might be the kindest, bravest, most wonderful, most splendid man in the world, whom no one knew of.
Well, one night the convicts were gathered just as we are, with the old man among them.
A Frenchman who had just pushed a Russian soldier away was squatting by the fire, engaged in roasting a piece of meat stuck on a ramrod.
It is only possible to capture prisoners if they agree to be captured, just as it is only possible to catch a swallow if it settles on one's hand.
Do please just leave me alone!
One of his legs twitches just perceptibly, but rapidly.
They just live their own old, quiet, and commonplace life, thought Natasha.
The rapidity of the Russian pursuit was just as destructive to our army as the flight of the French was to theirs.
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.
Just like the Frenchie!
So naturally, simply, and gradually--just as he had come from Turkey to the Treasury in Petersburg to recruit the militia, and then to the army when he was needed there--now when his part was played out, Kutuzov's place was taken by a new and necessary performer.
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.
In appearance he was just what he used to be.
"Just imagine--I knew nothing about him!" said he.
Pierre's confusion was not reflected by any confusion on Natasha's part, but only by the pleasure that just perceptibly lit up her whole face.
She got up quickly just as Nicholas entered, almost ran to the door which was hidden by curtains, struck her head against it, and rushed from the room with a moan either of pain or sorrow.
Natasha suddenly said with a mischievous smile such as Princess Mary had not seen on her face for a long time, he has somehow grown so clean, smooth, and fresh--as if he had just come out of a Russian bath; do you understand?
With a short coat and his hair cropped; just as if, well, just as if he had come straight from the bath...
The children will live just the same.
Doesn't he know that he is a man, just a man, while I...?
After Pierre's departure that first evening, when Natasha had said to Princess Mary with a gaily mocking smile: "He looks just, yes, just as if he had come out of a Russian bath--in a short coat and with his hair cropped," something hidden and unknown to herself, but irrepressible, awoke in Natasha's soul.
Owing to various diplomatic considerations the Russian armies--just those which might have destroyed his prestige--do not appear upon the scene till he is no longer there.
It was just when the count's affairs had become so involved that it was impossible to say what would happen if he lived another year that he unexpectedly died.
With Mademoiselle Bourienne's help the princess had maintained the conversation very well, but at the very last moment, just when he rose, she was so tired of talking of what did not interest her, and her mind was so full of the question why she alone was granted so little happiness in life, that in a fit of absent-mindedness she sat still, her luminous eyes gazing fixedly before her, not noticing that he had risen.
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.
"Is it just sentimentality, old wives' tales, or is she right?" he asked himself.
"You know," said Natasha, "you have read the Gospels a great deal--there is a passage in them that just fits Sonya."
I just looked in.
I don't love it, but just try to cut it off!
She gave it up just because it was so powerfully seductive.
Pierre had but to show a partiality for anything to get just what he liked done always.
This relation of the commander to those he commands is just what is called power.
Whatever happens it always appears that just that event was foreseen and decreed.
A man's will seems to him to be limited just because he is not conscious of it except as free.
But learning just as certainly that his will is subject to laws, he does not and cannot believe this.
And so the conception of the action of a man subject solely to the law of inevitability without any element of freedom is just as impossible as the conception of a man's completely free action.
And as the undefinable essence of the force moving the heavenly bodies, the undefinable essence of the forces of heat and electricity, or of chemical affinity, or of the vital force, forms the content of astronomy, physics, chemistry, botany, zoology, and so on, just in the same way does the force of free will form the content of history.
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.
Just as prolonged and stubborn is the struggle now proceeding between the old and the new conception of history, and theology in the same way stands on guard for the old view, and accuses the new view of subverting revelation.
Hope that you'll start accepting me as your husband - your mate; not just a lover.
You just happened to get caught on camera.
He was just showing me a house he said he was giving as a wedding gift.
It wasn't just losing a baby.
You spring something on me and then you just shut me out - like what I feel isn't important.
My whole name is Zebediah; but folks just call me 'Zeb.'
Just then the buggy tipped slowly over upon its side, the body of the horse tipping also.
Just then his eye fell upon the lanterns and the can of kerosene oil which Zeb had brought from the car of his balloon, and he got a clever idea from those commonplace things.
"And that's just what I shall do if you don't let those little balls of pork alone," said Jim, glaring at the kitten with his round, big eyes.
We have time, just now, and I'd rather face the invis'ble bears than those wooden imps.
No; she just dug her claws into the wood and climbed down the sides of this house to the ground.
We hope to grow to be dragons some day, but just now we're only dragonettes.
"This is just the place for that wolf," he thought.
It looks just like her!
The officer began to write, but just as he finished the first word, a bomb came through the roof of the house and struck the floor close by him.
This will be extremely useful, because the game, as they say, has just changed completely.
She creates premium services on her site that cost just $9.95 a year that include a number of additional features and virtual goods.
(It would have many more, but for now let's just say it includes a million things about you.)
But for now, I want to leave you with a preposterous thought: In the future, a new Mercedes Benz will cost just $50.
Makes me hungry just thinking about it.)
In a speech to the House of Representatives at this same time, Congressman Davy Crockett told the story of getting chewed out by a constituent for voting for a $20,000 emergency relief bill for the homeless in a city just wiped out by a fire.
In the future, massive new amounts of information will begin to resolve the debate, instead of just adding noise to it as too often occurs today.
Is the value of the city just the value of the buildings, cars, furniture, and other physical items in the city?
And she spread out her arms to show her short-waisted, lace-trimmed, dainty gray dress, girdled with a broad ribbon just below the breast.
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.
Dorothy thought he just wiggled one of his drooping ears, but that was all.
Just then they heard the big voice of Jim the cab-horse calling to them, and going to the doorway leading to the dome they found the Princess and a throng of her people had entered the House of the Sorcerer.
Wise machines are dramatically more valuable than machines that just store and retrieve information.
We've been married for nearly five years, and we just made love.
