He had often before, during the last six weeks, remained alone with her, but had never spoken to her of love.
That never does any harm, thought Anatole.
It can never happen! she said, looking at herself in the glass.
This expression in Princess Mary did not frighten them (she never inspired fear in anyone), but they knew that when it appeared on her face, she became mute and was not to be shaken in her determination.
Prince Vasili readily adopted her tone and the little princess also drew Anatole, whom she hardly knew, into these amusing recollections of things that had never occurred.
"Why is it you were never at Annette's?" the little princess asked Anatole.
You have done up your hair in this new way for the visitors, and before the visitors I tell you that in future you are never to dare to change your way of dress without my consent.
I never invited them.
You who are so pure can never understand being so carried away by passion.
My dear, I must tell you that this is a moment I shall never, never forget.
I thank you for the honor, but I shall never be your son's wife.
So, Count, there never is any negligence in my company, and so my conscience was at ease.
Under cover of obtaining help of this kind for another, which from pride he would never accept for himself, he kept in touch with the circle which confers success and which attracted him.
My brother knows him, he's dined with him--the present Emperor--more than once in Paris, and tells me he never met a more cunning or subtle diplomatist--you know, a combination of French adroitness and Italian play-acting!
Suddenly he heard musket fire quite close in front of him and behind our troops, where he could never have expected the enemy to be.
The old countess, not letting go of his hand and kissing it every moment, sat beside him: the rest, crowding round him, watched every movement, word, or look of his, never taking their blissfully adoring eyes off him.
"I never go back on my word," he said.
I'll never marry anyone, but will be a dancer.
His looks thanked her for offering him his freedom and told her that one way or another he would never cease to love her, for that would be impossible.
"Yes, I never loved her," said he to himself; "I knew she was a depraved woman," he repeated, "but dared not admit it to myself.
"I'll kill you!" he shouted, and seizing the marble top of a table with a strength he had never before felt, he made a step toward her brandishing the slab.
"God is merciful, doctors are never needed," she said.
"My darling!" he said--a word he had never used to her before.
And Fedya, with his noble spirit, loved him and even now never says a word against him.
And Sonya, though she would never have dared to say so, knew it and blushed scarlet every time Dolokhov appeared.
Dolokhov often dined at the Rostovs', never missed a performance at which they were present, and went to Iogel's balls for young people which the Rostovs always attended.
With a sinking heart he watched Dolokhov's hands and thought, "Now then, make haste and let me have this card and I'll take my cap and drive home to supper with Denisov, Natasha, and Sonya, and will certainly never touch a card again."
His servant was also a yellow, wrinkled old man, without beard or mustache, evidently not because he was shaven but because they had never grown.
"I should never dare to say that I know the truth," said the Mason, whose words struck Pierre more and more by their precision and firmness.
"Yes, I never thought of it, but I have led a contemptible and profligate life, though I did not like it and did not want to," thought Pierre.
With my whole soul I wish to be what you would have me be, but I have never had help from anyone....
Willarski, stepping toward him, said something to him in French in an undertone and then went up to a small wardrobe in which Pierre noticed garments such as he had never seen before.
Share thy happiness with thy neighbor, and may envy never dim the purity of that bliss.
The Emperor of Austria can never have thought of such a thing, it is only the cabinet that says it.
* "Europe will never be our sincere ally."
"Since the day of our brilliant success at Austerlitz," wrote Bilibin, "as you know, my dear prince, I never leave headquarters.
I shall never agree with you, said Pierre.
All the plans Pierre had attempted on his estates--and constantly changing from one thing to another had never accomplished--were carried out by Prince Andrew without display and without perceptible difficulty.
He did not know Arakcheev personally, had never seen him, and all he had heard of him inspired him with but little respect for the man.
It was evident that the thought could never occur to him which to Prince Andrew seemed so natural, namely, that it is after all impossible to express all one thinks; and that he had never felt the doubt, "Is not all I think and believe nonsense?"
It seemed to him that he ought to have an explanation with Natasha and tell her that the old times must be forgotten, that in spite of everything... she could not be his wife, that he had no means, and they would never let her marry him.
"Never mind, I'll run it up, it won't show," said Dunyasha.
"I have never enjoyed myself so much before!" she said, and Prince Andrew noticed how her thin arms rose quickly as if to embrace her father and instantly dropped again.
Prince Andrew had never before heard Speranski's famous laugh, and this ringing, high-pitched laughter from a statesman made a strange impression on him.
The smile of pleasure never left his face.
"But such a... such a... never happened to me before!" she said.
I never experienced anything like it before.
Natasha never remembered how she entered the drawing room.
The princess never thought of that proud word "justice."
The first death I saw, and one I shall never forget--that of my dear sister-in-law--left that impression on me.
He wrote that he had never loved as he did now and that only now did he understand and know what life was.
Never let me see your face here again, you villain!
"I knew," thought Nicholas, "that I should never understand anything in this crazy world."
Suddenly the wolf's whole physiognomy changed: she shuddered, seeing what she had probably never seen before--human eyes fixed upon her--and turning her head a little toward Rostov, she paused.
Nicholas, though he had never seen Ilagin, with his usual absence of moderation in judgment, hated him cordially from reports of his arbitrariness and violence, and regarded him as his bitterest foe.
"Uncle" too was in high spirits and far from being offended by the brother's and sister's laughter (it could never enter his head that they might be laughing at his way of life) he himself joined in the merriment.
Natasha ate of everything and thought she had never seen or eaten such buttermilk cakes, such aromatic jam, such honey-and-nut sweets, or such a chicken anywhere.
I have no other friend like her and never shall have.
I am so afraid it will never be!
I shall never forget it: I felt sad and sorry for everyone, for myself, and for everyone.
But no-- this is something new I've never seen before.
On the way back Nicholas drove at a steady pace instead of racing and kept peering by that fantastic all-transforming light into Sonya's face and searching beneath the eyebrows and mustache for his former and his present Sonya from whom he had resolved never to be parted again.
I will never let anyone say anything bad of Sonya, for there is nothing but good in her.
The countess, with a coldness her son had never seen in her before, replied that he was of age, that Prince Andrew was marrying without his father's consent, and he could do the same, but that she would never receive that intriguer as her daughter.
Exploding at the word intriguer, Nicholas, raising his voice, told his mother he had never expected her to try to force him to sell his feelings, but if that were so, he would say for the last time....
There was never a dinner or soiree at the club without him.
Pierre no longer suffered moments of despair, hypochondria, and disgust with life, but the malady that had formerly found expression in such acute attacks was driven inwards and never left him for a moment.
"Helene, who has never cared for anything but her own body and is one of the stupidest women in the world," thought Pierre, "is regarded by people as the acme of intelligence and refinement, and they pay homage to her.
But the later on never came.
His words are music, I never tire of hearing him! said the old prince, keeping hold of the hand and offering his cheek to be kissed.
Julie never missed a ball, a promenade, or a play.
Boris began, wishing to sting her; but at that instant the galling thought occurred to him that he might have to leave Moscow without having accomplished his aim, and have vainly wasted his efforts--which was a thing he never allowed to happen.
There was no need to say more: Julie's face shone with triumph and self- satisfaction; but she forced Boris to say all that is said on such occasions--that he loved her and had never loved any other woman more than her.
From early in the morning, wearing a dressing jacket, she attended to her household affairs, and then she drove out: on holy days to church and after the service to jails and prisons on affairs of which she never spoke to anyone.
We never hear a word but Dolokhov is mentioned.
Count Pierre never used to forget us.
While saying this he never removed his smiling eyes from her face, her neck, and her bare arms.
Nobody will know and I shall never see him again, she told herself.
He had never missed a carousal at Danilov's or other Moscow revelers', drank whole nights through, outvying everyone else, and was at all the balls and parties of the best society.
He was instinctively and thoroughly convinced that it was impossible for him to live otherwise than as he did and that he had never in his life done anything base.
Anatole had no notion and was incapable of considering what might come of such love-making, as he never had any notion of the outcome of any of his actions.
She continually fancied that either he would never come or that something would happen to her before he came.
A smile of pleasure never left Natasha's face.
Anatole moved a chair for Natasha and was about to sit down beside her, but the count, who never lost sight of her, took the seat himself.
You are enchanting... from the moment I saw you I have never ceased...
I cannot come to visit you but is it possible that I shall never see you?
Can I never...? and, blocking her path, he brought his face close to hers.
It seems to me that I have never loved anyone before.
"Well, anyway," thought Sonya as she stood in the dark passage, "now or never I must prove that I remember the family's goodness to me and that I love Nicholas.
But with "his gentlemen" he always drove himself and never demanded anything for his work.
For fifty-eight years have I lived in this world and never known anything so disgraceful!
It's true this engagement never was much to my liking.
I never promised, because...
"Thirdly," Pierre continued without listening to him, "you must never breathe a word of what has passed between you and Countess Rostova.
I do not, and never did, like Speranski personally, but I like justice!
If you wish to be my friend never speak to me of that... of all that!
No, that can never be.
A sense of pity he had never before known overflowed Pierre's heart.
Boris, coolly looking at Helene's dazzling bare shoulders which emerged from a dark, gold-embroidered, gauze gown, talked to her of old acquaintances and at the same time, unaware of it himself and unnoticed by others, never for an instant ceased to observe the Emperor who was in the same room.
The reasons on which the Duc de Bassano based his refusal to deliver them to him would never have led me to suppose that that could serve as a pretext for aggression.
In fact, the ambassador, as he himself has declared, was never authorized to make that demand, and as soon as I was informed of it I let him know how much I disapproved of it and ordered him to remain at his post.
Pfuel only snorted contemptuously and turned away, to show that he would never demean himself by replying to such nonsense as he was now hearing.
Doctors came to see her singly and in consultation, talked much in French, German, and Latin, blamed one another, and prescribed a great variety of medicines for all the diseases known to them, but the simple idea never occurred to any of them that they could not know the disease Natasha was suffering from, as no disease suffered by a live man can be known, for every living person has his own peculiarities and always has his own peculiar, personal, novel, complicated disease, unknown to medicine--not a disease of the lungs, liver, skin, heart, nerves, and so on mentioned in medical books, but a disease consisting of one of the innumerable combinations of the maladies of those organs.
"You'll never get well like that," she would say, forgetting her grief in her vexation, "if you won't obey the doctor and take your medicine at the right time!
She not merely avoided all external forms of pleasure--balls, promenades, concerts, and theaters--but she never laughed without a sound of tears in her laughter.
After those involuntary words--that if he were free he would have asked on his knees for her hand and her love--uttered at a moment when she was so strongly agitated, Pierre never spoke to Natasha of his feelings; and it seemed plain to her that those words, which had then so comforted her, were spoken as all sorts of meaningless words are spoken to comfort a crying child.
Never mind what it's for....
I never doubted the devotion of the Russian nobles, but today it has surpassed my expectations.
The artillery and baggage wagons moved noiselessly through the deep dust that rose to the very hubs of the wheels, and the infantry sank ankle-deep in that soft, choking, hot dust that never cooled even at night.
I swear to you on my honor that Napoleon was in such a fix as never before and might have lost half his army but could not have taken Smolensk.
Never to the end of his life could he understand goodness, beauty, or truth, or the significance of his actions which were too contrary to goodness and truth, too remote from everything human, for him ever to be able to grasp their meaning.
By adopting smaller and smaller elements of motion we only approach a solution of the problem, but never reach it.
A commander-in-chief is never dealing with the beginning of any event--the position from which we always contemplate it.
She began to think she would never live to see such happiness.
"I was never pleased at Bolkonski's engagement to Natasha," said the countess, "but I always wanted Nicholas to marry the princess, and had a presentiment that it would happen.
Never mind, never mind, what does it matter?
"Well, never mind, some of the things can be unloaded," he added in a soft, confidential voice, as though afraid of being overheard.
Those about him had never seen the count so morose and irritable.
To a man not swayed by passion that welfare is never certain, but he who commits such a crime always knows just where that welfare lies.
A Frenchman never forgets either an insult or a service.
He said that in all his life he had loved and still loved only one woman, and that she could never be his.
Whether it was the wine he had drunk, or an impulse of frankness, or the thought that this man did not, and never would, know any of those who played a part in his story, or whether it was all these things together, something loosened Pierre's tongue.
He was the same as ever, but the feverish color of his face, his glittering eyes rapturously turned toward her, and especially his neck, delicate as a child's, revealed by the turn-down collar of his shirt, gave him a peculiarly innocent, childlike look, such as she had never seen on him before.
Those who tried to understand the general course of events and to take part in it by self-sacrifice and heroism were the most useless members of society, they saw everything upside down, and all they did for the common good turned out to be useless and foolish--like Pierre's and Mamonov's regiments which looted Russian villages, and the lint the young ladies prepared and that never reached the wounded, and so on.
Only unconscious action bears fruit, and he who plays a part in an historic event never understands its significance.
When he had changed, poured water over his head, and scented himself, Nicholas arrived at the governor's rather late, but with the phrase "better late than never" on his lips.
As soon as Nicholas entered in his hussar uniform, diffusing around him a fragrance of perfume and wine, and had uttered the words "better late than never" and heard them repeated several times by others, people clustered around him; all eyes turned on him, and he felt at once that he had entered into his proper position in the province--that of a universal favorite: a very pleasant position, and intoxicatingly so after his long privations.
I never told this to anyone and never will, only to you.
And he knew that he would never act basely.
But he never thought about her as he had thought of all the young ladies without exception whom he had met in society, nor as he had for a long time, and at one time rapturously, thought about Sonya.
But with Princess Mary, to whom they were trying to get him engaged, he could never picture anything of future married life.
She knew that Natasha loved no one but Prince Andrew and had never ceased to love him.
You cannot know me, General, I have never seen you...
He had experienced this before, but never so strongly as now.
Pierre thought he had never eaten anything that tasted better.
We had no idea, never guessed at all.
"Ah, my dear fellow!" rejoined Karataev, "never decline a prison or a beggar's sack!"
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.
Latterly she had become convinced that she loved and was beloved, though she never said this definitely to herself in words.
At the Troitsa monastery they had spoken of the past, and he had told her that if he lived he would always thank God for his wound which had brought them together again, but after that they never spoke of the future.
The war went on independently of them, as it had to go: that is, never in the way people devised, but flowing always from the essential attitude of the masses.
Probably it had never had an owner, and it still belonged to nobody and had no name.
The look of his eyes was resolute, calm, and animatedly alert, as never before.
He is a man who never forgets anything.
Like Dokhturov he had the reputation of being a man of very limited capacity and information, and like Dokhturov he never made plans of battle but was always found where the situation was most difficult.
Through these forests Denisov and his party rode all day, sometimes keeping well back in them and sometimes coming to the very edge, but never losing sight of the moving French.
Tikhon did not like riding, and always went on foot, never lagging behind the cavalry.
"But why are you angry?" remonstrated Tikhon, "just as if I'd never seen your Frenchmen!
"Well, never mind!" and immediately, blushing and looking anxiously at the officers to see if they appeared ironical, he said:
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.
Perhaps he was really sitting on a wagon, but it might very well be that he was not sitting on a wagon but on a terribly high tower from which, if he fell, he would have to fall for a whole day or a whole month, or go on falling and never reach the bottom.
Petya was as musical as Natasha and more so than Nicholas, but had never learned music or thought about it, and so the melody that unexpectedly came to his mind seemed to him particularly fresh and attractive.
The source of this contradiction lies in the fact that the historians studying the events from the letters of the sovereigns and the generals, from memoirs, reports, projects, and so forth, have attributed to this last period of the war of 1812 an aim that never existed, namely that of cutting off and capturing Napoleon with his marshals and his army.
There never was or could have been such an aim, for it would have been senseless and its attainment quite impossible.
It was impossible first because--as experience shows that a three-mile movement of columns on a battlefield never coincides with the plans--the probability of Chichagov, Kutuzov, and Wittgenstein effecting a junction on time at an appointed place was so remote as to be tantamount to impossibility, as in fact thought Kutuzov, who when he received the plan remarked that diversions planned over great distances do not yield the desired results.
The aim of cutting off Napoleon and his army never existed except in the imaginations of a dozen people.
And that other side of life, of which she had never before thought and which had formerly seemed to her so far away and improbable, was now nearer and more akin and more comprehensible than this side of life, where everything was either emptiness and desolation or suffering and indignity.
And now it will never, never be possible to put it right.
To that end Kutuzov's activity was directed during the whole campaign from Moscow to Vilna--not casually or intermittently but so consistently that he never once deviated from it.
Miloradovich, who said he did not want to know anything about the commissariat affairs of his detachment, and could never be found when he was wanted--that chevalier sans peur et sans reproche * as he styled himself--who was fond of parleys with the French, sent envoys demanding their surrender, wasted time, and did not do what he was ordered to do.
Kutuzov never talked of "forty centuries looking down from the Pyramids," of the sacrifices he offered for the fatherland, or of what he intended to accomplish or had accomplished; in general he said nothing about himself, adopted no pose, always appeared to be the simplest and most ordinary of men, and said the simplest and most ordinary things.
He wrote letters to his daughters and to Madame de Stael, read novels, liked the society of pretty women, jested with generals, officers, and soldiers, and never contradicted those who tried to prove anything to him.
On the contrary, the army had never under the best material conditions presented a more cheerful and animated aspect.
Pierre remembered that the princess always had lady companions, but who they were and what they were like he never knew or remembered.
She spoke, mingling most trifling details with the intimate secrets of her soul, and it seemed as if she could never finish.
They even tell me wonders I myself never dreamed of!
Not only did I never see him but I heard nothing about him--I was in much lower company!
The other way out--his mother's death-- never entered his head.
"I never expected anything else of him," said Princess Mary to herself, feeling a joyous sense of her love for him.
But I never said I was dull.
Sometimes when, trying to understand him, she spoke of the good work he was doing for his serfs, he would be vexed and reply: Not in the least; it never entered my head and I wouldn't do that for their good!
She never cried from pain or vexation, but always from sorrow or pity, and when she wept her radiant eyes acquired an irresistible charm.
"Mary," he said softly, going up to her, "it will never happen again; I give you my word.
Never, he repeated in a trembling voice like a boy asking for forgiveness.
"I should never, never have believed that one could be so happy," she whispered to herself.
That happened only when, as was the case that day, her husband returned home, or a sick child was convalescent, or when she and Countess Mary spoke of Prince Andrew (she never mentioned him to her husband, who she imagined was jealous of Prince Andrew's memory), or on the rare occasions when something happened to induce her to sing, a practice she had quite abandoned since her marriage.
But the father whom the boy did not remember appeared to him a divinity who could not be pictured, and of whom he never thought without a swelling heart and tears of sadness and rapture.
Knowing that Natasha asked nothing for herself, and gave him commissions for others only when he himself had offered to undertake them, he now found an unexpected and childlike pleasure in this purchase of presents for everyone in the house, and never forgot anything.
But best of all you have brought yourself back--for I never saw anything like it, you ought to give your wife a scolding!
Pierre exchanged glances with Countess Mary and Nicholas (Natasha he never lost sight of) and smiled happily.
I never knew him to tell an untruth.
Countess Mary's soul always strove toward the infinite, the eternal, and the absolute, and could therefore never be at peace.
Nicholas has the weakness of never agreeing with anything not generally accepted.
(Though there were two good portraits of Prince Andrew in the house, Nicholas never imagined him in human form.)
This condition is never observed by the universal historians, and so to explain the resultant forces they are obliged to admit, in addition to the insufficient components, another unexplained force affecting the resultant action.
The theory seems irrefutable just because the act of transference of the people's will cannot be verified, for it never occurred.
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.
Napoleon could not have commanded an invasion of Russia and never did so.
So that examining the relation in time of the commands to the events, we find that a command can never be the cause of the event, but that a certain definite dependence exists between the two.
The soldier himself does the stabbing, hacking, burning, and pillaging, and always receives orders for these actions from men above him; he himself never gives an order.
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.
(3) However much the difficulty of understanding the causes may be increased, we never reach a conception of complete freedom, that is, an absence of cause.
In the same way we can never imagine the action of a man quite devoid of freedom and entirely subject to the law of inevitability.
She was uneasy because she had never been on a plane before.
Actually, she hadn't thought how it looked to others - and there had never been any doubt in her mind that she was fortunate to have Alex.
Never had she seen Alex so hostile - not even with Josh.
There were so many people she had never seen - lots of good looking women.
I'm not ever going to know them if I never meet them, am I?
The kitchen was open all the time, but Alex didn't drink - or never had to her knowledge.
They loved one child as much as the other, but one child could never take the place of another.
A part of her might never forgive him for what he did... and that was a dark part of her personality that she didn't want him to see.
He had never called Señor Medena Dad before.
I guess it does sound dull when I talk about it, but it's never dull to me, and Alex seems to be happy with things.
Sure, he'd had some rough times, but she had never done anything to make him think she would be unfaithful.
So you never suspected...
Her savings and checking accounts combined had never exceeded $3,000 - not even before she paid the bills.
I never knew there was so much.
It was unrealistic to think two people could spend a lifetime together and never squabble about anything.
Maybe it was anger that prompted him to make the remark about her spending his money, but he never apologized about it specifically.
I never met Grandma and Grandpa Barret.
Considering her own feelings about Alex, and the fact that he was a lot like his father, it wasn't hard to imagine that his mother never got over Señor Medena.
But never mind; something will happen pretty soon.
"Never!" declared the Wizard, boldly.
"I wonder if these people never sleep," said the girl.
The Mangaboos were much impressed because they had never before seen any light that did not come directly from their suns.
The cab-horse, who never slept long at a time, sat upon his haunches and watched the tiny piglets and the kitten with much approval.

As for reaching the top of the earth, I have never heard that it is possible to do that, and if you succeeded in getting there you would probably fall off.
Once you have tried my goods I am sure you will never be without them.
"Never mind; we can't turn back," said Dorothy; "and we don't intend to stay there, anyhow."
Never mind; they'll get Eureka, whatever they're called.
"It isn't that," said the Sawhorse, modestly; "but I never tire, and you do."
And in it were some odd little pictures, which he never grew tired of looking at.
No wonder the lad had never owned a toy.
Why the boys should drive away, Little maidens from their play, Or love to banter and fight so well, That's the thing I never could tell.
If he begins as a common sailor, he will never be anything else.
But he had never seen any pictures except a few small ones in a book.
You can never know everything, my child.
"No, never," said Cyrus.
So the physical mechanisms have been serially transformed, yet the law has never hiccupped.
It is an answer engine, but one that attempts to answer questions that have never before been asked.
A person could dedicate his life to understanding just one suggestion and never even get close.
We never will have the opportunity to learn from the details of their lives and the trillions upon trillions of trial-and-error learning that humankind has repeated again and again.
Phipps never came down with smallpox.
There was great rejoicing in the family that morning, but no one, not even the doctor, knew that I should never see or hear again.
I built dams of pebbles, made islands and lakes, and dug river-beds, all for fun, and never dreamed that I was learning a lesson.
The tang of the untainted, fresh and free sea air was like a cool, quieting thought, and the shells and pebbles and the seaweed with tiny living creatures attached to it never lost their fascination for me.
I was never still a moment; my life was as full of motion as those little insects that crowd a whole existence into one brief day.
I had never crossed it until one day Mildred, Miss Sullivan and I were lost in the woods, and wandered for hours without finding a path.
Miss Sullivan had never heard of "The Frost Fairies" or of the book in which it was published.

I never saw such strength and endurance in a child.

Perhaps I don't understand things, but Austria never has wished, and does not wish, for war.
Very likely it would be splendid, but it will never come about...
However much he drank, he never lost his clearheadedness.
Pierre again covered his eyes and thought he would never open them again.
"No, you'll never manage him that way," said Anatole.
This idea horrified her, made her shudder, blush, and feel such a rush of anger and pride as she had never experienced before.
She replied that she had never doubted his devotion and that she was ready to do anything for him and for the peasants.
Never will that moment return for him or for me when he might have said all he longed to say, and not Tikhon but I might have heard and understood him.
Not only did the Russians not fortify the position on the field of Borodino to the left of, and at a right angle to, the highroad (that is, the position on which the battle took place), but never till the twenty- fifth of August, 1812, did they think that a battle might be fought there.
The relative strength of bodies of troops can never be known to anyone.
Success never depends, and never will depend, on position, or equipment, or even on numbers, and least of all on position.
No, he did not and never will know it.
He never felt any hesitation in dealing with the peasants.
I've never had anything to do with drugs.

I asked him once if he was not sometimes tired at night, after working all day; and he answered, with a sincere and serious look, "Gorrappit, I never was tired in my life."
They learned that Chilon was a very quiet man, that he never spoke about himself, and that he spent all his time in trying to make his country great and strong and happy.
I think I shall never revisit those scenes.
I have said and still say that the theater of war is Poland and the enemy will never get beyond the Niemen.
It was unsatisfactory everywhere, but the corner behind the piano in the sitting room was better than other places: he had never slept there yet.
Alex never knew how you felt?
"No," returned Dorothy, stoutly, "it won't do to go back, for then we would never get home.
Carmen refrained from looking at Alex or displaying the shock she felt at the introduction of two more siblings he had never mentioned - an entire family.

"Thought that train would never come," observed the boy.
Yet Señor Medena never left the house.
"Never mind your hunger," interrupted the Prince.
His father was never able to get custody of him as a child.
Kicking his foot free of the stirrup, he offered her a hand, never taking his eyes off Señor Medena.
"Never mind," said Zeb, "we don't want to get back, anyhow."
