"But won't they be veg'table, like everything else here?" asked the kitten.
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.
She would like to have so much attention.
At last he saw something in the darkness that looked like two balls of fire.
The Internet does not, like the car, have a single essence.
But alas! we do like cowbirds and cuckoos, which lay their eggs in nests which other birds have built, and cheer no traveller with their chattering and unmusical notes.
If a man has faith, he will co-operate with equal faith everywhere; if he has not faith, he will continue to live like the rest of the world, whatever company he is joined to.
But I don't know anything about dressing or acting like a lady.
It seems like you've become the resident veterinarian and the vacation is over.
The mountain before them was shaped like a cone and was so tall that its point was lost in the clouds.
They were tower-like in shape and the best of them seemed old and weather-worn; yet all were strong and substantial.
"Tell us, dear, what do the creatures look like?" she asked, addressing her pet.
Oh, mother, I would like to know everything.
He was not petted and spoiled like many other princes.
I don't use history to predict the future, like some talisman that lets me pick winning lottery numbers (don't I wish).
Statistics like this are generally not rigorously calculated.
I like this goal, and I would like to do it as well, but in bits, not bites.
I did not like his plan, for I wished to enter college with my class.
Debarred from the great highways of knowledge, I was compelled to make the journey across country by unfrequented roads--that was all; and I knew that in college there were many bypaths where I could touch hands with girls who were thinking, loving and struggling like me.
The words rush through my hand like hounds in pursuit of a hare which they often miss.
They fly hither and thither in my thought like blind birds beating the air with ineffectual wings.
But when a great scholar like Professor Kittredge interprets what the master said, it is "as if new sight were given the blind."
On the 1st of April it rained and melted the ice, and in the early part of the day, which was very foggy, I heard a stray goose groping about over the pond and cackling as if lost, or like the spirit of the fog.
There is a plenty of such chairs as I like best in the village garrets to be had for taking them away.
The youth may build or plant or sail, only let him not be hindered from doing that which he tells me he would like to do.
Probably I should not consciously and deliberately forsake my particular calling to do the good which society demands of me, to save the universe from annihilation; and I believe that a like but infinitely greater steadfastness elsewhere is all that now preserves it.
Natasha did not like the visitor's tone of condescension to childish things.
How can you torture me and yourself like that, for a mere fancy? said Nicholas taking her hand.
I don't like you to talk like that.
Would you like to kiss me? she whispered almost inaudibly, glancing up at him from under her brows, smiling, and almost crying from excitement.
"I don't like these veg'table people," said the little girl.
Tears filled the thin man's eyes, and the fat otkupshchik sobbed outright like a child and kept repeating:
She feared for her brother who was in it, was horrified by and amazed at the strange cruelty that impels men to kill one another, but she did not understand the significance of this war, which seemed to her like all previous wars.
Eight quires, like this sample, gilt- edged... it must be exactly like the sample.
The cook began running hither and thither in the passage like a frightened hen, just as Alpatych entered.
"Routed up the earth like a pig," said another.
Once more something whistled, but this time quite close, swooping downwards like a little bird; a flame flashed in the middle of the street, something exploded, and the street was shrouded in smoke.
Through the streets soldiers in various uniforms walked or ran confusedly in different directions like ants from a ruined ant-hill.
Some of this dust was kneaded by the feet and wheels, while the rest rose and hung like a cloud over the troops, settling in eyes, ears, hair, and nostrils, and worst of all in the lungs of the men and beasts as they moved along that road.
