Having once more entered into the definite conditions of this regimental life, Rostov felt the joy and relief a tired man feels on lying down to rest.
Several times parts of the Pavlograd regiment had exchanged shots with the enemy, had taken prisoners, and once had even captured Marshal Oudinot's carriages.
He shall be taken away--taken away at once, said the assistant hurriedly.
On Rostov's inquiry as to how the matter stood, he at once produced from under his pillow a paper he had received from the commission and the rough draft of his answer to it.
Rostov noticed by their faces that all those gentlemen had already heard that story more than once and were tired of it.
The members of his suite, guessing at once what he wanted, moved about and whispered as they passed something from one to another, and a page--the same one Rostov had seen the previous evening at Boris'--ran forward and, bowing respectfully over the outstretched hand and not keeping it waiting a moment, laid in it an Order on a red ribbon.
If once we begin judging and arguing about everything, nothing sacred will be left!
"Just once more," said a girlish voice above him which Prince Andrew recognized at once.
"Yes, it is the same oak," thought Prince Andrew, and all at once he was seized by an unreasoning springtime feeling of joy and renewal.
This was Speranski, Secretary of State, reporter to the Emperor and his companion at Erfurt, where he had more than once met and talked with Napoleon.
During the first period of their acquaintance Bolkonski felt a passionate admiration for him similar to that which he had once felt for Bonaparte.
Joseph Alexeevich, having remained silent and thoughtful for a good while, told me his view of the matter, which at once lit up for me my whole past and the future path I should follow.
I knew that if I once let myself see her I should not have strength to go on refusing what she wanted.
I seemed to know at once that the process of regeneration had already taken place in him, and I rushed to meet him.
Natasha had not had a moment free since early morning and had not once had time to think of what lay before her.
Natasha at once recognized the shorter and younger man in the white uniform: it was Bolkonski, who seemed to her to have grown much younger, happier, and better-looking.
Hardly had he got rid of his hat before he ran into Prince Andrew's room with a preoccupied air and at once began talking.
Vera, having decided in her own mind that Pierre ought to be entertained with conversation about the French embassy, at once began accordingly.
Could she, like other women" (Vera meant herself), "love a man once for all and remain true to him forever?
Once she came to her mother, tried to say something, and suddenly began to cry.
She listened joyfully (as though she had not expected it) to the charm of the notes reverberating, filling the whole empty ballroom, and slowly dying away; and all at once she felt cheerful.
Yes, at once, that very instant, her fate would be decided.
Once she began questioning him about his son.
Once, when in a room with a lamp dimly lit before the icon Theodosia was talking of her life, the thought that Theodosia alone had found the true path of life suddenly came to Princess Mary with such force that she resolved to become a pilgrim herself.
Once, when he had touched on this topic with his mother, he discovered, to his surprise and somewhat to his satisfaction, that in the depth of her soul she too had doubts about this marriage.
The countess, who heard at once from the maids what had happened at the lodge, was calmed by the thought that now their affairs would certainly improve, but on the other hand felt anxious as to the effect this excitement might have on her son.
But once the countess called her son and informed him that she had a promissory note from Anna Mikhaylovna for two thousand rubles, and asked him what he thought of doing with it.
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.
Take the covert at once, for my Girchik says the Ilagins are at Korniki with their hounds.
"Only once in my life to get an old wolf, I want only that!" thought he, straining eyes and ears and looking to the left and then to the right and listening to the slightest variation of note in the cries of the dogs.
"Uncle's" huntsman was galloping from the other side across the wolf's path and his borzois once more stopped the animal's advance.
"And suppose they outdo my Milka at once!" he thought as he rode with "Uncle" and Ilagin toward the hare.
When he jumped up he did not run at once, but pricked his ears listening to the shouting and trampling that resounded from all sides at once.
"Once she had missed it and turned it away, any mongrel could take it," Ilagin was saying at the same time, breathless from his gallop and his excitement.
I did once, but gave it up.
Played "Uncle" once more, running his fingers skillfully over the strings, and then he stopped short and jerked his shoulders.
She asked "Uncle" for his guitar and at once found the chords of the song.
Natasha glanced at her and at the crack in the pantry door, and it seemed to her that she remembered the light falling through that crack once before and Sonya passing with a glass in her hand.
Once in the regiment I had not gone to some merrymaking where there was music... and suddenly I felt so depressed...
Do you remember when I was punished once about some plums?
I'll dress up at once and go with them.
Sometimes, as she looked at the strange but amusing capers cut by the dancers, who--having decided once for all that being disguised, no one would recognize them--were not at all shy, Pelageya Danilovna hid her face in her handkerchief, and her whole stout body shook with irrepressible, kindly, elderly laughter.
He first implored her to forgive him and Sonya and consent to their marriage, then he threatened that if she molested Sonya he would at once marry her secretly.
He ceased keeping a diary, avoided the company of the Brothers, began going to the club again, drank a great deal, and came once more in touch with the bachelor sets, leading such a life that the Countess Helene thought it necessary to speak severely to him about it.
At the next review, they say, the Emperor did not once deign to address him.
Boris read 'Poor Liza' aloud to her, and more than once interrupted the reading because of the emotions that choked him.
When the count returned, Natasha was impolitely pleased and hastened to get away: at that moment she hated the stiff, elderly princess, who could place her in such an embarrassing position and had spent half an hour with her without once mentioning Prince Andrew.
One can see at once that they're engaged....
They did not drag her away at once, but sang with her for a long time and then at last dragged her off, and behind the scenes something metallic was struck three times and everyone knelt down and sang a prayer.
All that was going on before her now seemed quite natural, but on the other hand all her previous thoughts of her betrothed, of Princess Mary, or of life in the country did not once recur to her mind and were as if belonging to a remote past.
More than once he had vexed his father by spoiling his own career, and he laughed at distinctions of all kinds.
"You know, I adore little girls, they lose their heads at once," pursued Anatole.
With the same expression of agitated surprise and guilt she went about the house, taking up now one occupation, now another, and at once abandoning them.
"Go to the devil!" cried Anatole and, clutching his hair, left the room, but returned at once and dropped into an armchair in front of Dolokhov with his feet turned under him.
More than once when Anatole's regiment was stationed at Tver he had taken him from Tver in the evening, brought him to Moscow by daybreak, and driven him back again the next night.
More than once he had enabled Dolokhov to escape when pursued.
More than once he had driven them through the town with gypsies and "ladykins" as he called the cocottes.
More than once they had beaten him, and more than once they had made him drunk on champagne and Madeira, which he loved; and he knew more than one thing about each of them which would long ago have sent an ordinary man to Siberia.
He took a heavy paperweight and lifted it threateningly, but at once put it back in its place.
"Posterity will do him justice," he concluded, and at once turned to Pierre.
He told me once to apply to you...
"I will tell him, I will tell him everything once more," said Pierre.
Balashev did not do so at once, but continued to advance along the road at a walking pace.
During the speech that followed, Balashev, who more than once lowered his eyes, involuntarily noticed the quivering of Napoleon's left leg which increased the more Napoleon raised his voice.
Prince Andrew wished to leave at once, but Princess Mary persuaded him to stay another day.
He passed into the next room, and the deep, querulous sounds of his voice were at once heard from there.
To ride this horse was a pleasure to him, and he thought of the horse, of the morning, of the doctor's wife, but not once of the impending danger.
A child knocks itself and runs at once to the arms of its mother or nurse to have the aching spot rubbed or kissed, and it feels better when this is done.
Once when making such calculations he wrote down his own name in French, Comte Pierre Besouhoff, but the sum of the numbers did not come right.
The people did not at once realize the meaning of this bombardment.
Understanding at once to whom she alluded, Prince Vasili said in a whisper:
On the fifteenth, the day of the old prince's death, the Marshal had insisted on Princess Mary's leaving at once, as it was becoming dangerous.
Mademoiselle Bourienne at once began crying again and kissed that hand, speaking of the princess' sorrow and making herself a partner in it.
So many different eyes, old and young, were fixed on her, and there were so many different faces, that she could not distinguish any of them and, feeling that she must speak to them all at once, did not know how to do it.
"All our stupidity, Yakov Alpatych," came the answers, and the crowd began at once to disperse through the village.
On the rest of the way to Moscow, though the princess' position was not a cheerful one, Dunyasha, who went with her in the carriage, more than once noticed that her mistress leaned out of the window and smiled at something with an expression of mingled joy and sorrow.
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.
He smiled at the recollection of that time and of his love for Natasha, and passed at once to what now interested him passionately and exclusively.
I tell you once for all, my dear fellow," said he, "into the fire with all such things!
On seeing these peasants, who were evidently still amused by the novelty of their position as soldiers, Pierre once more thought of the wounded men at Mozhaysk and understood what the soldier had meant when he said: "They want the whole nation to fall on them."
Pierre recognized him at once by his peculiar figure, which distinguished him from everybody else.
There they are, those rudely painted figures that once seemed splendid and mysterious.
Napoleon noticed at once what they were about and guessed that they were not ready.
Do you remember at Braunau he commanded an army for three weeks and did not once mount a horse to inspect his entrenchments....
Once or twice he was shouted at for being in the way.
Pierre ran down the slope once more.
Why did he not retire at once by the Kaluga road, abandoning Moscow? and so on.
An order must be given him at once, that instant.
Helene was touched, and more than once tears rose to her eyes and to those of Monsieur de Jobert and their voices trembled.
He asks you to come to him at once on a very important matter.
Natasha glanced with frightened eyes at the face of the wounded officer and at once went to meet the major.
She at once set to work afresh and they now trusted her completely.
We can harness at once, your excellency.
But the work of unloading, once started, could not be arrested.
The first troops started at once, and during the night they marched slowly and steadily without hurry.
A general with a brilliant suite galloped off at once to fetch the boyars.
The general orders them all to be driven out at once, without fail.
I'll fetch a piece of cloth at once for such an honorable gentleman, or even two pieces with pleasure.
And one of the soldiers, his face all at once distorted with fury, struck Vereshchagin on the head with the blunt side of his saber.
One of the Russians understood what was asked and several voices at once began answering the interpreter.
"Fire!" repeated the officer once more, and the reports of a musket and of two cannon shots were heard simultaneously.
As a hungry herd of cattle keeps well together when crossing a barren field, but gets out of hand and at once disperses uncontrollably as soon as it reaches rich pastures, so did the army disperse all over the wealthy city.
Then during the first day spent in inaction and solitude (he tried several times to fix his attention on the masonic manuscripts, but was unable to do so) the idea that had previously occurred to him of the cabalistic significance of his name in connection with Bonaparte's more than once vaguely presented itself.
Even if Pierre were not a Frenchman, having once received that loftiest of human appellations he could not renounce it, said the officer's look and tone.
It was plain that l'amour which the Frenchman was so fond of was not that low and simple kind that Pierre had once felt for his wife, nor was it the romantic love stimulated by himself that he experienced for Natasha.
At the time of that meeting it had not produced an effect upon him--he had not even once recalled it.
I'll lie down at once, said Natasha.
I'll lie down at once, said Natasha, and began hurriedly undressing, tugging at the tapes of her petticoat.
And suddenly the sequence of these thoughts broke off, and Prince Andrew heard (without knowing whether it was a delusion or reality) a soft whispering voice incessantly and rhythmically repeating "piti-piti- piti," and then "titi," and then again "piti-piti-piti," and "ti-ti" once more.
If only it were possible for me to see her once more!
Just once, looking into those eyes to say...
The little barefooted Frenchman in the blue coat went up to the Armenians and, saying something, immediately seized the old man by his legs and the old man at once began pulling off his boots.
A little man in Russian civilian clothes rode out from the ranks, and by his clothes and manner of speaking Pierre at once knew him to be a French salesman from one of the Moscow shops.
During his diplomatic career he had more than once noticed that such utterances were received as very witty, and at every opportunity he uttered in that way the first words that entered his head.
And at once, without leaving the church, thanks were rendered to the Creator for His help and for the victory.
The Emperor at once received this messenger in his study at the palace on Stone Island.
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.
"Anna Ignatyevna wants to see you, Nicholas," said she, pronouncing the name so that Nicholas at once understood that Anna Ignatyevna was a very important person.
"And I have known so many cases of a splinter wound" (the Gazette said it was a shell) "either proving fatal at once or being very slight," continued Nicholas.
"The potatoes are grand!" he said once more.
When Princess Mary heard from Nicholas that her brother was with the Rostovs at Yaroslavl she at once prepared to go there, in spite of her aunt's efforts to dissuade her--and not merely to go herself but to take her nephew with her.
Natasha felt happy and agitated, but at once remembered that this would not do and that he had to be quiet.
Once again it pushed from outside.
And all at once it grew light in his soul and the veil that had till then concealed the unknown was lifted from his spiritual vision.
Though the condition and numbers of the French army were unknown to the Russians, as soon as that change occurred the need of attacking at once showed itself by countless signs.
And at once, as a clock begins to strike and chime as soon as the minute hand has completed a full circle, this change was shown by an increased activity, whirring, and chiming in the higher spheres.
His wrath, once expended, did not return, and blinking feebly he listened to excuses and self-justifications (Ermolov did not come to see him till the next day) and to the insistence of Bennigsen, Konovnitsyn, and Toll that the movement that had miscarried should be executed next day.
And once more Kutuzov had to consent.
The theaters set up in the Kremlin and in Posnyakov's house were closed again at once because the actors and actresses were robbed.
My orders are to give it at once to the general on duty.
Konovnitsyn had understood at once that the news brought was of great importance and that no time must be lost.
An army gains a victory, and at once the rights of the conquering nation have increased to the detriment of the defeated.
An army has suffered defeat, and at once a people loses its rights in proportion to the severity of the reverse, and if its army suffers a complete defeat the nation is quite subjugated.
To weturn at once? asked Denisov.
Once a Frenchman Tikhon was trying to capture fired a pistol at him and shot him in the fleshy part of the back.
Denisov at once cheered up and, calling Petya to him, said: "Well, tell me about yourself."
Petya took off his wet clothes, gave them to be dried, and at once began helping the officers to fix up the dinner table.
"Come to your Papa at once, please!" said she with a strange, excited look.
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.
But that man, so heedless of his words, did not once during the whole time of his activity utter one word inconsistent with the single aim toward which he moved throughout the whole war.
"You see, brothers..." said he when the shouts had ceased... and all at once his voice and the expression of his face changed.
At the end of the third verse as the last note died away, twenty voices roared out at once: Oo-oo-oo-oo!
He glanced once at the companion's face, saw her attentive and kindly gaze fixed on him, and, as often happens when one is talking, felt somehow that this companion in the black dress was a good, kind, excellent creature who would not hinder his conversing freely with Princess Mary.
She spoke little of Pierre, but when Princess Mary mentioned him a long-extinguished light once more kindled in her eyes and her lips curved with a strange smile.
But the once proud and shrewd rulers of France, feeling that their part is played out, are even more bewildered than he, and do not say the words they should have said to destroy him and retain their power.
There is no step, no crime or petty fraud he commits, which in the mouths of those around him is not at once represented as a great deed.
He at once resigned his commission, and without waiting for it to be accepted took leave of absence and went to Moscow.
Once in summer he had sent for the village elder from Bogucharovo, a man who had succeeded to the post when Dron died and who was accused of dishonesty and various irregularities.
He understood what she was weeping about, but could not in his heart at once agree with her that what he had regarded from childhood as quite an everyday event was wrong.
But he did forget himself once or twice within a twelvemonth, and then he would go and confess to his wife, and would again promise that this should really be the very last time.
"You should go, go away at once, if you don't feel strong enough to control yourself," she would reply sadly, trying to comfort her husband.
Once she had a talk with her friend Natasha about Sonya and about her own injustice toward her.
And she deduced the essentials of his wishes quite correctly, and having once arrived at them clung to them tenaciously.
He looked at Natasha with sorrow and surprise as at a bad likeness of a person once dear.
He felt that his way of life had now been settled once for all till death and that to change it was not in his power, and so that way of life proved economical.
But those glances expressed something more: they said that she had played her part in life, that what they now saw was not her whole self, that we must all become like her, and that they were glad to yield to her, to restrain themselves for this once precious being formerly as full of life as themselves, but now so much to be pitied.
Once or twice Pierre was carried away and began to speak of these things, but Nicholas and Natasha always brought him back to the health of Prince Ivan and Countess Mary Alexeevna.
But I understand that you value what opens up a fresh line, said she, repeating words Pierre had once uttered.
But the Allied monarchs were angry at this and went to fight the French once more.
Once the fire of passion was gone, it was embarrassing.
Once again he had caught her ogling him.
Once again he lowered his head, but this time his lips lingered on hers, searching for a response.
I think everyone was guilty of staring at her at least once - if for no other reason, wondering if she was going to fall out of her dress.
Once again fear squeezed her stomach.
Once someone from church came by to see if she needed help.
Once free of the vehicle she took a deep breath and turned to face her rescuer.
Once the car was stopped, he turned to her, his voice suddenly gentle.
I'll be alright once I get my car.
Of course, once she had convinced everyone else what a foolish move it would be, how was she going to convince herself that she didn't need Brandon in her life?
I had a beautiful black once, but I had to sell it.
So, with a snort and a neigh and a whisk of his short tail he trotted off the roof into the air and at once began floating downward to the street.
Once I lived on top the earth, but for many years I have had my factory in this spot--half way up Pyramid Mountain.
Over this Land I ruled in peace for many years, until I grew old and longed to see my native city once again.
And now, my friends, please to excuse My lisping and my stammers; I, for this once, have done my best, And so--I'll make my manners.
In Scotland there once lived a poor shepherd whose name was James Hogg.
Once upon a time there was a famous Arab whose name was Al Mansur.
First, Tommy Jones whispered to Billy Brown and was at once called out to stand on the floor.
Soon, at the head of a very great army, he marched toward the city which had once been his home.
From time to time she smoothed the folds of her dress, and whenever the story produced an effect she glanced at Anna Pavlovna, at once adopted just the expression she saw on the maid of honor's face, and again relapsed into her radiant smile.
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.
He could not resist looking at them once more.
Be off to your houses at once, and don't let one of your voices be heard!
If we have once seen, "the day is ours, and what the day has shown."
Old Rostov could not tell his wife of what had passed without tears, and at once consented to Petya's request and went himself to enter his name.
The demands of life, which had seemed to her annihilated by her father's death, all at once rose before her with a new, previously unknown force and took possession of her.
I determined to go into business at once, and not wait to acquire the usual capital, using such slender means as I had already got.
"How do you expect him to answer you all at once?" said Prince Andrew.
