He closed the door and walked around to the other side.
In other words, it's none of my business.
I do not remember when I first realized that I was different from other people; but I knew it before my teacher came to me.
I may be connected to other people, but still it is all about me.
Everything that I saw other people do I insisted upon imitating.
On the other hand, maybe he was simply surprised that Alondra would want such a tame life.
He might never say anything to Jonathan about it, but Jonathan would know in other ways how he felt.
On the other hand, Alex needed to be in a position where he was forced to actually talk to his father.
He stood on one leg and then on the other, and watched very closely; but nobody whispered.
And they will see how this information will be used to better the lives of other people in very real ways.
And then there was the other thing.
On the other hand, maybe he was hiding from something besides the responsibility of the ranch.
I'm very certain, Oz, that you gave me the best brains in the world, for I can think with them day and night, when all other brains are fast asleep.
But it is the biggest, best store ever, where you can buy anything from anywhere, based on reviews by other buyers, at a discount, and have it gift wrapped, engraved, altered, drop-shipped, and probably delivered by tomorrow.
The beginning of my life was simple and much like every other little life.
On the other hand, the dream was in her head, not his.
Jonathan separated himself from the other children.
Some other officers, who had seen the whole affair, cried out to the captain, Shame!
For the other day, when you sat at dinner with your officers, I noticed that the wine made you act queerly.
The next day, the laugh was the other way.
They admired the new foal and a few other horses.
She rested one hand on his upper arm and surrendered her other to a hand that engulfed hers.
There will be one from each of us to the other, and then a couple for the children from Santa.
So I say the horses and chickens are mine and Alex says the other animals are his.
When the bed sagged on the other side, she realized the sound was Alex changing into his night clothes.
At least, it isn't as wrong as some other things.
A farmer is as good as any other man; and where there's no room for a farmer, there can be no room for me.
The other is made of artificial flowers, shaped and colored by a skillful artist.
We often see other technologies race toward a point and then stop growing along that axis.
From this period came some of humanity's greatest masterpieces, including St. Peter's Basilica, Da Vinci's Last Supper, Michelangelo's Pieta, and hundreds of other instantly recognizable artistic treasures.
So why not the other components?
It was the word "water," and I continued to make some sound for that word after all other speech was lost.
Belle, our dog, my other companion, was old and lazy and liked to sleep by the open fire rather than to romp with me.
How can a man be a philosopher and not maintain his vital heat by better methods than other men?
Of two patterns which differ only by a few threads more or less of a particular color, the one will be sold readily, the other lie on the shelf, though it frequently happens that after the lapse of a season the latter becomes the most fashionable.
"Won't you come over to the other table?" suggested Anna Pavlovna.
But won't you come to this other table? repeated Anna Pavlovna.
On the other hand, Alex exuded confidence.
Leaning forward, she lifted his chin with her other hand and kissed his lips.
These are my other two daughters, Dulce and Alondra.
Alex walked in and closed the door to the other bedroom.
The man sitting at the other end of the table was introduced to them as Morino el capataz - their foreman, Morino.
For a moment she clung to him, pressing her body against his until desire for him drowned out every other thought.
Or was it the other way around?
On the other hand, when the issue finally came to a head, she would have been in the middle of it all anyway.
Was the man capable of thinking of someone other than himself?
Jonathan found a stick larger on one end than the other to use for a bat.
Lifting the skirt slightly with one hand so she wouldn't trip on it, she let the other hand slide lightly down the banister for added balance.
Other than the one time he had lost his temper with her, she had never known him to be anything but gentle.
Not that one had anything to do with the other, but the technology of surrogacy would have been inconceivable back then.
The other obvious fact was that Dulce didn't accept the inheritance issue.
But a lot more complicated for the other two, maybe.
Mom used to say that people suspected in others what they had experienced or what they would do in the other person's shoes.
Other than an infatuation with Josh before she met Alex, there had been no one else.
In other words, when he shook himself free of his current family, he would come to Dulce.
Surely they had other people who spoke Spanish - people familiar with the customer.
On the other hand, Katie had flatly refused to provide some information because she said Alex wouldn't want her to tell.
The arm with the IV rested across her chest and the other hung limply.
The other lung was infected and they had switched to yet another antibiotic.
They did another x-ray this morning and the infection has spread to the other lung.
On the other hand, Alex needed to be in a position where he was forced to actually talk to his father.
They were sitting beside each other, reading when she began the inquest.
Maybe she was right, and if Alex hadn't been such a perfect husband in every other way, she might have done it.
Around it were arranged, like the five points of a star, the other five brilliant balls; one being rose colored, one violet, one yellow, one blue and one orange.
Dorothy was too dazed to say much, but she watched one of Jim's big ears turn to violet and the other to rose, and wondered that his tail should be yellow and his body striped with blue and orange like the stripes of a zebra.
We are somewhere in the middle of the earth, and the chances are we'll reach the other side of it before long.
A balloon meant to her some other arrival from the surface of the earth, and she hoped it would be some one able to assist her and Zeb out of their difficulties.
The Wizard reached out, caught the wee creature in his hand, and holding its head between one thumb and finger and its tail between the other thumb and finger he pulled it apart, each of the two parts becoming a whole and separate piglet in an instant.
After that other people brought water from a brook and sprinkled the earth.
The children looked at each other in perplexity, and the Wizard sighed.
They did not bother to cross the bridges over the brooks, but when they came to a stream they stepped high and walked in the air to the other side.
"But IS there any other place?" asked the Wizard.
So he placed Dorothy upon one side of him and the boy upon the other and set a lantern upon each of their heads.
"And mama can't tell whether my face is dirty or not!" added the other childish voice, gleefully.
"The Valley of Voe is certainly a charming place," resumed the Wizard; "but we cannot be contented in any other land than our own, for long."
"True," he replied; "and in my satchel are other useful things to fight with."
"Why, we can see each other again!" cried one, joyfully.
"If we had known we were coming we might have brought along several other useful things," responded the Wizard.
There was a regretful accent in the creature's voice, and at the words all the other dragonettes sighed dismally.
Oh, she is sometimes gone for several weeks on her hunting trips, and if we were not tied we would crawl all over the mountain and fight with each other and get into a lot of mischief.
"Then we're all right," said the girl, "for if the dragon went the other way she can't poss'bly get to us now."
The mother dragon probably knows the road to the earth's surface, and if she went the other way then we have come the wrong way, said the Wizard, thoughtfully.
The lanterns were beginning to grow dim, and the Wizard poured the remaining oil from one into the other, so that the one light would last longer.
The Sawhorse stopped at the same time and stared at the other with its queer protruding eyes, which were mere knots in the log that formed its body.
"I couldn't help it," returned the other, rather crestfallen.
The wooden animal gave a start, and then examined the other intently.
"There ought to be several animals on the jury," said Ozma, "because animals understand each other better than we people understand them.
Two other baby birds were there, that had not fallen out.
With one hand the little boy clung to his sister's arm, and with the other he held his primer.
He wrote "The Village Blacksmith," "The Children's Hour," and many other beautiful pieces which you will like to read and remember.
In it were many great cities; and from one end of it to the other there were broad fields of grain and fine pastures for sheep and cattle.
"Samuel Stark saw her the other morning," said Tanner.
All the other men agreed to this, and they parted.
Then he tied a rope around his waist and said to his friends, Take hold of the other end, boys.
Far away, at the other side of the field, King Richard saw his men falling back.
So he went to the other hotel, where he found the vice president sitting with some friends in the parlor.
One was Mr. Webster's horse; the other was an old gray nag with a lady's sidesaddle on its back.
Who lives on the other side of the world?
He persuaded other towns near Antium to send their soldiers to help him.
And many other stories are told of this man's great love and pity for the timid creatures which lived in the fields and woods.
The other slaves laughed and said he was foolish.
And before the end of the journey Aesop had nothing to carry, while the other slaves were groaning under their heavy loads.
"Because, since these other slaves do everything, there is nothing left for me to perform," said Aesop.
Many other stories are told of this wonderful slave.
"Good! good!" said all the other Mice; and one ran to get the bell.
And as he spoke, the other lawmakers listened in silence till the darkness began to fade and the sky grew bright again.
But he was still headstrong and ill-tempered; and he was often in trouble with the other sailors.
He quarreled with the other sailors, and even with the captain.
They also put in some bread and meat and other food, enough for several weeks.
Like other kings, he lived in a beautiful palace and had many officers and servants to wait upon him.
So he raised a great army and made war against other countries.
Of what other story does this remind you?
He took something like an oarlock from his pocket and fastened it to the stern of the boat; then with a paddle which worked in this oarlock one of the boys could guide the boat while the other turned the paddle wheels.
After him the other men were called, one by one; and each in turn sang his favorite song.
And all of the sweet-faced sisters and other women of the place listened while he sang again the wonderful song of the creation.
It must be written down so that people in other places and in other times may hear it read and sung.
In it there are numberless trees and flowers and rivers and waterfalls, and other things to make the heart glad.
They told him that there were beautiful things at home--why go away to see other things less beautiful?
At the other end were the beds.
She has other things to do, and no time to attend to me.
All the other men will take off their hats, but the king will keep his on.
"Then there is only one other thing to be done," said Solon.
Via books, ideas became mobile—or as we would say today, went viral—spreading to other villages and other countries and to multiple places around the world simultaneously.
We are building the Internet to connect with each other better, to share information, to collaborate, to offer mutual support, and so on.
Why are there fewer traffic jams in one certain city than in any other of its size?
When you look at a product on one of its web pages, Amazon suggests other products you might like as well.
On the same page, Amazon says "Frequently Bought Together" and then lists a few other products.
Then imagine if you shared your Digital Echo with a billion other people on the planet.
It will look at all other people who like the same restaurants and see where they repeatedly go for Italian food in San Francisco.
It will look at all this and a million other factors that would seem to be unrelated.
Every time you buy a book from Amazon, its employees use your data—information about what you did on their site in the privacy of your own home—to try to sell other people more products.
Sometimes they became infected with other illnesses, and variolation seemed to start entirely new epidemics.
But in other cases, variolation worked: The person who survived it did not subsequently get smallpox.
Say, for instance, you believe redheads cause more traffic accidents than those with other colors of hair.
Then you ask the computer for any other statistical anomalies between these two populations.
Are these ingredients in other foods as well?
You won't have to go eat the other foods; the system will remember every meal you have had and will log your headaches.
Then, you will search to see if other people have this same problem.
You won't be able to identify the other people; you will simply see that 1600 other people seem to have this same corn dog issue.
You will then look to see what other factors they all have in common.
Finally, this system will not just solve for human illness, but all kinds of other problems as well.
Some chunks of your DNA do nothing useful (that we know of yet), but other chunks we call genes.
You knew little of what any other scientist was working on.
When you trade with someone in a free market, you are giving up something you have for something the other person has, which you value more.
Most cases aren't like our jelly bean example where each person had the items the other person wanted.
They suggest other products a customer might be interested in.
Most of these people have other jobs and obligations, so without something like Etsy, they might not be able to enter into these trades.
To the extent that I get accurate information from other consumers of the product, I will tend to make better choices.
The other is division of labor, worth discussing in some detail as it is an almost miraculous process.
Technology is simply the combining of other economic products in new ways.
Given perfect information, frictionless markets, and other theoretical impossibilities, a finite amount of utility can be achieved in that way.
And like our example with energy, technology and human innovation could make other things that are now scarce—or that we think of now as scarce—not so at all.
Technological advances that displace human workers are similar in effect to two other concepts with which we are very familiar in the modern age: outsourcing and free trade.
Calculating the actual, societal costs of fatty foods, alcohol, cars, pet ownership, mercury thermometers, air conditioning, solar panels, razor blades, jogging shoes, and ten thousand other things, and incorporating those costs in the prices as taxes would lead to a vastly more efficient allocation of resources.
And the principle at work in this technology could lead to a cure for other autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
But let's move on to other jobs they can do outside our bodies.
So, will we get a thousandfold increase in other areas?
The United Kingdom famously did this after World War II by raising marginal tax rates on earned income to more than 99 percent and, for some other kinds of income, to more than 100 percent.
Other methods of redistribution are even more direct.
In other words, the government taxes and spends about $300 per person per year.
On the other hand, if you take the forty richest countries, each person earns on average around $33,000.
In fact, you have no other income.
In other words, the average person will make more money, pay a higher percentage as taxes, but still bring home vastly more than before.
When I talk about this future, a future in which machines will do more and more of the work people do now, I always get some variant of the same question: What about the people who lose their jobs to machines and don't have any other skills?
If a million people lose their jobs to a machine, then entrepreneurs start businesses that hire those people to do other things.
But sadly, other people don't think his work is any good.
They don't really worry about whether playing polo or building orphanages or any other chosen pursuit can pay the bills, because they don't need it to pay the bills.
Plus, we have powers formerly attributed to the ancient gods; we can fly, talk to people in other places, and see what is happening elsewhere.
In other words, food is present, but some cannot afford it.
And that doesn't even count the many other charitable organizations that have not filed for this tax-exempt status with the federal government.
In other words, civil government steps in to take over roles traditionally provided by private charity only when charities no longer provide the service.
This is the case on genetically modified crops and many other issues where passions run high.
Why are people so quick to vilify those on the "other side" of the issue—and why do we even think in terms of sides?
I take no side other than to be against hunger.
And finally, consider how nutrition affects other relative and subjective factors in our lives such as energy level and mood.
In other words, you might not notice the time you ate the MSG and didn't get the headache.
In areas of uncertainty, we form our opinions on the basis of assumptions in other parts of our life.
Again, this is because without compelling, widely accepted facts, we use things we've learned from other parts of our lives to make our decisions.
Start with India, which has more chronically hungry people than any other country.
In fact, China produces more food than any other country in the world, triple the amount the United States produces.
If poor nations decide to pursue what I will call the Japan strategy, importing all their food and developing other industry, then they become huge fans of farm subsidies in other countries.
In that case, the subsidy goes straight from the taxpayer in the other country to the purchaser of the subsidized crop.
If, on the other hand, they want self-sufficiency in agriculture, then farm subsidies in other countries are bad for them.
The cotton gin, steel ploughs, tractors, combines, and a thousand other inventions would forever change the farm.
Government buildings were converted into silos to hold the abundance, as other countries in the region placed orders for massive amounts of these seeds.
He had no way to collaborate with scientists in other places, no Internet, and no library.
He would pollinate a wheat stalk, then cover it with a trash bag to prevent contamination by other plants.
How much more should we be able to with the Internet, computers, and other technology?
Sensors can constantly monitor moisture levels in the soil, the size and color of the plants, air quality, nutrient levels in the soil, amount of sunlight, and hundreds of other variables.
Food also serves two other purposes.
First, the technology can be abused and used irresponsibly, like pretty much every other technology in the world.
Other businesses in the food industry—say those pricey health foods you see at fancy grocery stores—optimize for taste and nutrition at the expense of price.
In any case, there are other ways to use genetic modification to get energy.
Wouldn't that be something: Plants that would convert nitrogen from the atmosphere directly into ammonia they could use or plants that gave off the odor of other plants that pests avoid?
Collaboration, communication, access to information, and the other advantages that the Internet brings will all come to bear here.
When a promising new finding emerges, that information will be shared with other farms and those techniques will be tested there.
During the period 1958 to 1961, an initiative called "The Great Leap Forward" was intended to increase the production of grain and other agricultural products.
And the great tragedy is: During these three years, China exported more than twelve million tons of grain along with a literal cornucopia of other agricultural products.
It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill.
They were lined up as far as the eye could see on the Apian Way, the main road through Rome, as a warning to other slaves who might consider rebellion.
I will spare my readers a description of this other than to say it is exactly what it sounds like.
We no longer force prisoners to kill each other for our amusement.
Young boys compete with other boys in sports and races and tug-of-wars and, well, in everything, because that is simply how they are wired.
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.
In addition to that, many Americans own stock in other countries through their retirement savings.
Is the value of the city just the value of the buildings, cars, furniture, and other physical items in the city?
Unless one can somehow imagine NATO countries going to war with each other, such as Belgium invading the United Kingdom, it is hard to see how "world wars" could escalate outside of NATO member countries.
We could go on here and talk about other military powers and alliances, but the simple fact is that large countries are less willing to risk war in defense of small ones.
As the number of touch points with other countries rises, so must our shared understanding of acceptable conduct.
Plus it promotes empathy, the ability to see the other guy's viewpoint.
Most Facebook users have people of other ethnicities and national origin as Facebook friends.
But if these other news outlets contradict the official account, then all the better.
They need the Internet, mobile phones, computers, and the other accoutrements of the modern age for the wealth they bring.
Other nations are becoming more transparent as well.
More people speak some English than any other language.
Nations will maintain their own traditions, holidays, music, idioms, diets, and a thousand things that make them different from other nations.
Every other metric is still climbing: data throughput, mobile phone usage, messages sent, websites created, amount of information online, data transfer speed, and CPU speed.
On the other end of the education spectrum, college degrees are up: A recent Harvard University study reports that 6.7 percent of the world has a college degree, up from 5.9 percent in 2000.
As education rises, a thousand other things rise with it: income, health, political engagement, and an overall concern for world affairs.
Being educated in the United States has long been a mark of distinction for the elites of other nations.
According to Allan Goodman, president and CEO of the Institute of International Education, The United States continues to host more international students than any other country in the world.
In addition, more than one billion of the world's seven billion people visited a country other than their own in 2011.
This is a force for peace—to the extent that as we share the same set of cultural references, we understand each other better.
People will always try to get other people to do what they want them to.
In Othello is a character named Iago, an evil man who never does anything illegal himself but is always planting ideas in other people's minds, to get them to do his dirty work.
He told Simonides he was only going to pay him half the fee and if he wanted the other half, he should collect it from Castor and Pollux.
We would recite it to each other like a Homeric epic.
Moore's Law works because many thousands of people compete with each other to drive technology forward.
Other than cataclysm, asymmetrical attack, or government gone wild, we have little to worry about.
Optimism, on the other hand, says, "There is a way."
One day some gentlemen called on my mother, and I felt the shutting of the front door and other sounds that indicated their arrival.
The other was white, with long golden curls.
One child was six years old, the other two or three years older.
The younger child was blind--that was I--and the other was Martha Washington.
Curiously enough, the absence of eyes struck me more than all the other defects put together.
As the cool stream gushed over one hand she spelled into the other the word water, first slowly, then rapidly.
I learned how the sun and the rain make to grow out of the ground every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, how birds build their nests and live and thrive from land to land, how the squirrel, the deer, the lion and every other creature finds food and shelter.
What joy to talk with other children in my own language!
I used to make noises, keeping one hand on my throat while the other hand felt the movements of my lips.
I have read "The Frost Fairies" since, also the letters I wrote in which I used other ideas of Miss Canby's.
At other times, in the midst of a paragraph I was writing, I said to myself, "Suppose it should be found that all this was written by some one long ago!"
In the electrical building we examined the telephones, autophones, phonographs, and other inventions, and he made me understand how it is possible to send a message on wires that mock space and outrun time, and, like Prometheus, to draw fire from the sky.
I had a French grammar in raised print, and as I already knew some French, I often amused myself by composing in my head short exercises, using the new words as I came across them, and ignoring rules and other technicalities as much as possible.
Indeed, I think I made more progress in German than in any of my other studies.
For a while, indeed, I had to copy my Latin in braille, so that I could recite with the other girls.
Burke's speech was more instructive than any other book on a political subject that I had ever read.
It makes me most happy to remember the hours we spent helping each other in study and sharing our recreation together.
It was thought advisable for me to have my examinations in a room by myself, because the noise of the typewriter might disturb the other girls.
All the other preliminary examinations were conducted in the same manner.
The embossed books and other apparatus arrived, and I threw myself into the work with renewed confidence.
I still found more difficulty in mastering problems in mathematics than I did in any other of my studies.
Consequently, I need more time to prepare my lessons than other girls.
You are sure it is somewhere in your mind near the top--you saw it there the other day when you were looking up the beginnings of the Reformation.
Great poetry, whether written in Greek or in English, needs no other interpreter than a responsive heart.
I take all my other friends to see this king-tree.
When a rainy day keeps me indoors, I amuse myself after the manner of other girls.
As a child I loved to sit on his knee and clasp his great hand with one of mine, while Miss Sullivan spelled into the other his beautiful words about God and the spiritual world.
I shall mention only two other friends.
To the other friend I am also deeply indebted.
Mother and teacher and Mrs. Hopkins and Mr. Anagnos and Mr. Rodocanachi and many other friends went to Plymouth to see many old things.
Then it is all ready to be manufactured into engines, stoves, kettles and many other things.
The other day I broke my doll's head off; but that was not a dreadful accident, because dolls do not live and feel, like people.
The other day I had a fine party.
Her little brown mate has flown away with the other birds; but Annie is not sad, for she likes to stay with me.

It is such a delight to be with the other girls, and do everything that they do.
On the other hand, when we learn a new word, it is the key to untold treasures....
Besides, I have been told that "sociables" cost more than other kinds of bicycles.
My teacher and other friends think I could ride a Columbia tandem in the country with perfect safety.

How quickly I should lock up all these mighty warriors, and hoary sages, and impossible heroes, who are now almost my only companions; and dance and sing and frolic like other girls!
On the other hand, it would be a pledge to the world that we intend to stand by our declaration of war, and give Cuba to the Cubans, as soon as we have fitted them to assume the duties and responsibilities of a self-governing people....
But we shall not be quite separated; we shall see each other every day, I hope.
The other day, I met a deaf Norwegian gentleman, who knows Ragnhild Kaata and her teacher very well, and we had a very interesting conversation about her.
She showed me how very foolish it would be for me to pursue a four years' course of study at Radcliffe, simply to be like other girls, when I might better be cultivating whatever ability I had for writing.
I had used it all through my school work, and never any other system.

TO MR. WILLIAM WADE Cambridge, February 2, 1901. ...By the way, have you any specimens of English braille especially printed for those who have lost their sight late in life or have fingers hardened by long toil, so that their touch is less sensitive than that of other blind people?
It was written out of my heart, and perhaps that is why it met a sympathetic response in other hearts.
He quoted the passages in which she explains that college is not the "universal Athens" she had hoped to find, and cited the cases of other remarkable persons whose college life had proved disappointing.
On the other hand she does not know another's expression.
Her life has been a series of attempts to do whatever other people do, and to do it as well.
Her success has been complete, for in trying to be like other people she has come most fully to be herself.
Miss Keller's effort to reach out and meet other people on their own intellectual ground has kept her informed of daily affairs.
This sense is not, however, so finely developed as in some other blind people.
Most blind people are aided by the sense of sound, so that a fair comparison is hard to make, except with other deaf-blind persons.
This much is certain, she cannot have any sense that other people may not have, and the existence of a special sense is not evident to her or to any one who knows her.
She is no more mysterious and complex than any other person.
She does not, it would seem, prove the existence of spirit without matter, or of innate ideas, or of immortality, or anything else that any other human being does not prove.
Now that she has grown up, nobody thinks of being less frank with her than with any other intelligent young woman.
Her sympathy is of the swift and ministering sort which, fortunately, she has found so often in other people.
For Dr. Howe is the great pioneer on whose work that of Miss Sullivan and other teachers of the deaf-blind immediately depends.
Science and faith together led him to try to make his way into the soul which he believed was born in Laura Bridgman as in every other human being.
After the first year or two Dr. Howe did not teach Laura Bridgman himself, but gave her over to other teachers, who under his direction carried on the work of teaching her language.
There are two other reasons why Miss Sullivan's records are incomplete.
It must be remembered that Miss Sullivan had to solve her problems unaided by previous experience or the assistance of any other teacher.
But whether Helen stays at home or makes visits in other parts of the country, her education is always under the immediate direction and exclusive control of her teacher.
One eye is larger than the other, and protrudes noticeably.
She devoted herself to her dolls the first evening, and when it was bedtime she undressed very quietly, but when she felt me get into bed with her, she jumped out on the other side, and nothing that I could do would induce her to get in again.
Helen loves to dig and play in the dirt like any other child.
If I say, "Where is baby's other ear?" she points it out correctly.
The other day I substituted the words SMALL and LARGE for these signs, and she at once adopted the words and discarded the signs.
She has felt dead squirrels and rabbits and other wild animals, and is anxious to see a "walk-squirrel," which interpreted, means, I think, a "live squirrel."
The other day a friend brought her a new doll from Memphis, and I thought I would see if I could make Helen understand that she must not break it.
The other night when I went to bed, I found Helen sound asleep with a big book clasped tightly in her arms.
When I asked her about it in the morning, she said, "Book--cry," and completed her meaning by shaking and other signs of fear.
Besides the chickens, we have several other additions to the family--two calves, a colt, and a penful of funny little pigs.
I happened to tell her the other day that the vine on the fence was a "creeper."
She discovered a hole in her boot the other morning, and, after breakfast, she went to her father and spelled, "Helen new boot Simpson (her brother) buggy store man."
There isn't a living soul in this part of the world to whom I can go for advice in this, or indeed, in any other educational difficulty.
Besides, they said Helen's wonderful deliverance might be a boon to other afflicted children.
She asked the other day, "Who made all things and Boston?"
She is also beginning to realize that she is not like other children.
The other day she asked, "What do my eyes do?"
For the first lesson I had two balls, one made of worsted, large and soft, the other a bullet.
Then she took the other ball and made her sign for LARGE by spreading both hands over it.
Then her attention was called to the hardness of the one ball and the softness of the other, and she learned SOFT and HARD.
Instantly she caught the idea, and asked me to find DOG and many other words.
For weeks we did nothing but talk and read and tell each other stories about Christmas.
The other day Helen came across the word grandfather in a little story and asked her mother, "Where is grandfather?" meaning her grandfather.
She knows that her father shoots partridges and deer and other game.
She hugged and kissed me, and the quiet-looking divine who sat on the other side of her.
She responds quickly to the gentle pressure of affection, the pat of approval, the jerk of impatience, the firm motion of command, and to the many other variations of the almost infinite language of the feelings; and she has become so expert in interpreting this unconscious language of the emotions that she is often able to divine our very thoughts.
Even before I knew her, she had handled a dead chicken, or bird, or some other small animal.
Helen had been given a bed and carriage for her dolls, which she had received and used like any other gift.
She is fond of fun and frolic, and loves dearly to be with other children.
She bends over her book with a look of intense interest, and as the forefinger of her left hand runs along the line, she spells out the words with the other hand; but often her motions are so rapid as to be unintelligible even to those accustomed to reading the swift and varied movements of her fingers.
One day, while her pony and her donkey were standing side by side, Helen went from one to the other, examining them closely.
The intellectual improvement which Helen has made in the past two years is shown more clearly in her greater command of language and in her ability to recognize nicer shades of meaning in the use of words, than in any other branch of her education.
I have always talked to Helen exactly as I would talk to a seeing and hearing child, and I have insisted that other people should do the same.
I explained to her that the soul, too, is invisible, or in other words, that it is without apparent form.
By experiment, by studying other children, Miss Sullivan came upon the practical way of teaching language by the natural method.
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.
But it is evident that precisely what the deaf child needs to be taught is what other children learn before they go to school at all.
I am told that Miss Keller speaks better than most other deaf people.
She kept one hand on the singer's mouth, while the other rested on the piano, and she stood in this position as long as any one would sing to her, and afterward she would make a continuous sound which she called singing.
Hard consonants were, and indeed still are, very difficult for her to pronounce in connection with one another in the same word; she often suppresses the one and changes the other, and sometimes she replaces both by an analogous sound with soft aspiration.
Other people say they have no success in making Miss Keller "hear" them.
In this, as in all other things, Miss Sullivan has been the wise teacher.
She excels other deaf people because she was taught as if she were normal.
On the other hand, the peculiar value to her of language, which ordinary people take for granted as a necessary part of them like their right hand, made her think about language and love it.
But as she was not able to find her copy, and applications for the volume at bookstores in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Albany, and other places resulted only in failure, search was instituted for the author herself.
He has two neighbours, who live still farther north; one is King Winter, a cross and churlish old monarch, who is hard and cruel, and delights in making the poor suffer and weep; but the other neighbour is Santa Claus, a fine, good-natured, jolly old soul, who loves to do good, and who brings presents to the poor, and to nice little children at Christmas.
You must know that King Frost, like all other kings, has great treasures of gold and precious stones; but as he is a generous old monarch, he endeavours to make a right use of his riches.
In this case Helen Keller held almost intact in her mind, unmixed with other ideas, the words of a story which at the time it was read to her she did not fully understand.
All use of language is imitative, and one's style is made up of all other styles that one has met.
Thus it is that any child may be taught to use correct English by not being allowed to read or hear any other kind.
Her vocabulary has all the phrases that other people use, and the explanation of it, and the reasonableness of it ought to be evident by this time.
Writing for other people, she should in many cases be true to outer fact rather than to her own experience.
It is true, on the other hand, that in her descriptions, she is best from the point of view of art when she is faithful to her own sensations; and this is precisely true of all artists.
Passing a cornfield the other day, close by a hat and coat on a stake, I recognized the owner of the farm.
Adam and Eve, according to the fable, wore the bower before other clothes.
But this puts an infinitely worse face on the matter, and suggests, beside, that probably not even the other three succeed in saving their souls, but are perchance bankrupt in a worse sense than they who fail honestly.
On the one side is the palace, on the other are the almshouse and "silent poor."
Each stick was carefully mortised or tenoned by its stump, for I had borrowed other tools by this time.
They were a real cereal fruit which I ripened, and they had to my senses a fragrance like that of other noble fruits, which I kept in as long as possible by wrapping them in cloths.
Man is an animal who more than any other can adapt himself to all climates and circumstances.
I heard it proposed lately that two young men should travel together over the world, the one without money, earning his means as he went, before the mast and behind the plow, the other carrying a bill of exchange in his pocket.
While my townsmen and women are devoted in so many ways to the good of their fellows, I trust that one at least may be spared to other and less humane pursuits.
But in other directions, even from this point, I could not see over or beyond the woods which surrounded me.
Instead of three meals a day, if it be necessary eat but one; instead of a hundred dishes, five; and reduce other things in proportion.
Some give directions to be waked every half-hour, doubtless for no other purpose; and then, to pay for it, they tell what they have dreamed.
It is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art.
The one hundred and twenty-five dollars annually subscribed for a Lyceum in the winter is better spent than any other equal sum raised in the town.
The whistle of the locomotive penetrates my woods summer and winter, sounding like the scream of a hawk sailing over some farmer's yard, informing me that many restless city merchants are arriving within the circle of the town, or adventurous country traders from the other side.
As they come under one horizon, they shout their warning to get off the track to the other, heard sometimes through the circles of two towns.
While these things go up other things come down.
To walk in a winter morning in a wood where these birds abounded, their native woods, and hear the wild cockerels crow on the trees, clear and shrill for miles over the resounding earth, drowning the feebler notes of other birds--think of it!
I may be affected by a theatrical exhibition; on the other hand, I may not be affected by an actual event which appears to concern me much more.
We meet at meals three times a day, and give each other a new taste of that old musty cheese that we are.
Many of our houses, both public and private, with their almost innumerable apartments, their huge halls and their cellars for the storage of wines and other munitions of peace, appear to be extravagantly large for their inhabitants.
When the night arrived, to quote their own words--He laid us on the bed with himself and his wife, they at the one end and we at the other, it being only planks laid a foot from the ground and a thin mat upon them.
I had more visitors while I lived in the woods than at any other period in my life; I mean that I had some.
Beside, there were wafted to me evidences of unexplored and uncultivated continents on the other side.
Men of business, even farmers, thought only of solitude and employment, and of the great distance at which I dwelt from something or other; and though they said that they loved a ramble in the woods occasionally, it was obvious that they did not.
When they were growing, I used to hoe from five o'clock in the morning till noon, and commonly spent the rest of the day about other affairs.
That's Roman wormwood--that's pigweed--that's sorrel--that's piper-grass--have at him, chop him up, turn his roots upward to the sun, don't let him have a fibre in the shade, if you do he'll turn himself t' other side up and be as green as a leek in two days.
"The earth," he adds elsewhere, "especially if fresh, has a certain magnetism in it, by which it attracts the salt, power, or virtue (call it either) which gives it life, and is the logic of all the labor and stir we keep about it, to sustain us; all dungings and other sordid temperings being but the vicars succedaneous to this improvement."
I saw an old man the other day, to my astonishment, making the holes with a hoe for the seventieth time at least, and not for himself to lie down in!
But why should not the New Englander try new adventures, and not lay so much stress on his grain, his potato and grass crop, and his orchards--raise other crops than these?
We should really be fed and cheered if when we met a man we were sure to see that some of the qualities which I have named, which we all prize more than those other productions, but which are for the most part broadcast and floating in the air, had taken root and grown in him.
The village appeared to me a great news room; and on one side, to support it, as once at Redding & Company's on State Street, they kept nuts and raisins, or salt and meal and other groceries.
I had gone down to the woods for other purposes.
Once in a while we sat together on the pond, he at one end of the boat, and I at the other; but not many words passed between us, for he had grown deaf in his later years, but he occasionally hummed a psalm, which harmonized well enough with my philosophy.
You may see from a boat, in calm weather, near the sandy eastern shore, where the water is eight or ten feet deep, and also in some other parts of the pond, some circular heaps half a dozen feet in diameter by a foot in height, consisting of small stones less than a hen's egg in size, where all around is bare sand.
I have in my mind's eye the western, indented with deep bays, the bolder northern, and the beautifully scalloped southern shore, where successive capes overlap each other and suggest unexplored coves between.
I have said that Walden has no visible inlet nor outlet, but it is on the one hand distantly and indirectly related to Flint's Pond, which is more elevated, by a chain of small ponds coming from that quarter, and on the other directly and manifestly to Concord River, which is lower, by a similar chain of ponds through which in some other geological period it may have flowed, and by a little digging, which God forbid, it can be made to flow thither again.
In these as in other respects, however, it is a lesser twin of Walden.
This was probably the same phenomenon to which I have referred, which is especially observed in the morning, but also at other times, and even by moonlight.
But the only true America is that country where you are at liberty to pursue such a mode of life as may enable you to do without these, and where the state does not endeavor to compel you to sustain the slavery and war and other superfluous expenses which directly or indirectly result from the use of such things.
Let the noon find thee by other lakes, and the night overtake thee everywhere at home.
This creature succeeded by other means than temperance and purity.
Those same stars twinkle over other fields than these.--But how to come out of this condition and actually migrate thither?
Sometimes I had a companion in my fishing, who came through the village to my house from the other side of the town, and the catching of the dinner was as much a social exercise as the eating of it.
Many other substitutes might, perhaps, be found.
I had often since seen its crumpled red velvety blossom supported by the stems of other plants without knowing it to be the same.
These forms are more agreeable to the fancy and imagination than fresco paintings or other the most expensive furniture.
I amused myself one winter day with sliding this piecemeal across the pond, nearly half a mile, skating behind with one end of a log fifteen feet long on my shoulder, and the other on the ice; or I tied several logs together with a birch withe, and then, with a longer birch or alder which had a hook at the end, dragged them across.
Mechanics and tradesmen who come in person to the forest on no other errand, are sure to attend the wood auction, and even pay a high price for the privilege of gleaning after the woodchopper.
We talked of rude and simple times, when men sat about large fires in cold, bracing weather, with clear heads; and when other dessert failed, we tried our teeth on many a nut which wise squirrels have long since abandoned, for those which have the thickest shells are commonly empty.
His words and attitude always suppose a better state of things than other men are acquainted with, and he will be the last man to be disappointed as the ages revolve.
There was one other with whom I had "solid seasons," long to be remembered, at his house in the village, and who looked in upon me from time to time; but I had no more for society there.
The Concord hunter told him what he knew and offered him the skin; but the other declined it and departed.
Early in the morning, while all things are crisp with frost, men come with fishing-reels and slender lunch, and let down their fine lines through the snowy field to take pickerel and perch; wild men, who instinctively follow other fashions and trust other authorities than their townsmen, and by their goings and comings stitch towns together in parts where else they would be ripped.
Many have believed that Walden reached quite through to the other side of the globe.
In order to see how nearly I could guess, with this experience, at the deepest point in a pond, by observing the outlines of a surface and the character of its shores alone, I made a plan of White Pond, which contains about forty-one acres, and, like this, has no island in it, nor any visible inlet or outlet; and as the line of greatest breadth fell very near the line of least breadth, where two opposite capes approached each other and two opposite bays receded, I ventured to mark a point a short distance from the latter line, but still on the line of greatest length, as the deepest.
Sometimes, also, when the ice was covered with shallow puddles, I saw a double shadow of myself, one standing on the head of the other, one on the ice, the other on the trees or hillside.
I did not know whether they had come to sow a crop of winter rye, or some other kind of grain recently introduced from Iceland.
The one melts, the other but breaks in pieces.
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.
On the third or fourth of May I saw a loon in the pond, and during the first week of the month I heard the whip-poor-will, the brown thrasher, the veery, the wood pewee, the chewink, and other birds.
The other side of the globe is but the home of our correspondent.
The material was pure, and his art was pure; how could the result be other than wonderful?
But it is not the less necessary for this; for the people must have some complicated machinery or other, and hear its din, to satisfy that idea of government which they have.
It is not a man's duty, as a matter of course, to devote himself to the eradication of any, even the most enormous wrong; he may still properly have other concerns to engage him; but it is his duty, at least, to wash his hands of it, and, if he gives it no thought longer, not to give it practically his support.
If I devote myself to other pursuits and contemplations, I must first see, at least, that I do not pursue them sitting upon another man's shoulders.
I have other affairs to attend to.
I think that it is enough if they have God on their side, without waiting for that other one.
Associations formed elsewhere, springing from a feeling of humanity, or any other cause, have nothing whatever to do with it.
The other day at the Apraksins' I heard a lady asking, 'Is that the famous Prince Andrew?'
He stood a little while before the glass, smiled, and walked toward the other door.
Hardly had Boris gone than Sonya, flushed, in tears, and muttering angrily, came in at the other door.
Then she slipped down among the flowerpots on the other side of the tubs and stood, hanging her head.
Go to the other girls, or...
Boris and Natasha were at the other window and ceased talking when Vera entered.
The other guests seeing that Shinshin was talking came up to listen.
The other guests were all conversing with one another.
After them other couples followed, filling the whole dining hall, and last of all the children, tutors, and governesses followed singly.
At one end of the table sat the countess with Marya Dmitrievna on her right and Anna Mikhaylovna on her left, the other lady visitors were farther down.
Midway down the long table on one side sat the grownup young people: Vera beside Berg, and Pierre beside Boris; and on the other side, the children, tutors, and governesses.
At the ladies' end an even chatter of voices was heard all the time, at the men's end the voices sounded louder and louder, especially that of the colonel of hussars who, growing more and more flushed, ate and drank so much that the count held him up as a pattern to the other guests.
Of the four crystal glasses engraved with the count's monogram that stood before his plate, Pierre held out one at random and drank with enjoyment, gazing with ever- increasing amiability at the other guests.
Marya Dmitrievna's deep voice suddenly inquired from the other end of the table.
After she had played a little air with variations on the harp, she joined the other young ladies in begging Natasha and Nicholas, who were noted for their musical talent, to sing something.
As soon as the provocatively gay strains of Daniel Cooper (somewhat resembling those of a merry peasant dance) began to sound, all the doorways of the ballroom were suddenly filled by the domestic serfs--the men on one side and the women on the other--who with beaming faces had come to see their master making merry.
The other couples could not attract a moment's attention to their own evolutions and did not even try to do so.
When the Military Governor had gone, Prince Vasili sat down all alone on a chair in the ballroom, crossing one leg high over the other, leaning his elbow on his knee and covering his face with his hand.
The Military Governor himself? was being asked at the other side of the room.
Prince Vasili said no more and his cheeks began to twitch nervously, now on one side, now on the other, giving his face an unpleasant expression which was never to be seen on it in a drawing room.
Pausing for a moment, Pierre noticed several other men of the same kind hiding in the shadow of the house on both sides.
The part of the room behind the columns, with a high silk-curtained mahogany bedstead on one side and on the other an immense case containing icons, was brightly illuminated with red light like a Russian church during evening service.
On leaving the bed both Prince Vasili and the princess passed out by a back door, but returned to their places one after the other before the service was concluded.
The sick man was so surrounded by doctors, princesses, and servants that Pierre could no longer see the reddish-yellow face with its gray mane-- which, though he saw other faces as well, he had not lost sight of for a single moment during the whole service.
"Wants to turn on the other side," whispered the servant, and got up to turn the count's heavy body toward the wall.
"But, my dear princess," answered Anna Mikhaylovna blandly but impressively, blocking the way to the bedroom and preventing the other from passing, "won't this be too much for poor Uncle at a moment when he needs repose?
One of my two brothers is already abroad, the other is with the Guards, who are starting on their march to the frontier.
Tikhon knew that neither the son's arrival nor any other unusual event must be allowed to disturb the appointed order of the day.
The two women let go of one another, and then, as if afraid of being too late, seized each other's hands, kissing them and pulling them away, and again began kissing each other on the face, and then to Prince Andrew's surprise both began to cry and kissed again.
I don't want any other life, and can't, for I know no other.
On the way to his sister's room, in the passage which connected one wing with the other, Prince Andrew met Mademoiselle Bourienne smiling sweetly.
A member of the Hofkriegsrath from Vienna had come to Kutuzov the day before with proposals and demands for him to join up with the army of the Archduke Ferdinand and Mack, and Kutuzov, not considering this junction advisable, meant, among other arguments in support of his view, to show the Austrian general the wretched state in which the troops arrived from Russia.
And that other one with him, the Austrian, looked as if he were smeared with chalk--as white as flour!
He bowed his head and scraped first with one foot and then with the other, awkwardly, like a child at a dancing lesson.
You tell the colonel in the presence of other officers that an officer has stolen...
I'm not to blame that the conversation began in the presence of other officers.
"You speak to the colonel about this nasty business before other officers," continued the staff captain, "and Bogdanich" (the colonel was called Bogdanich) "shuts you up."
"It is an illness, there's no other way of explaining it," said the staff captain.
The turrets of a convent stood out beyond a wild virgin pine forest, and far away on the other side of the Enns the enemy's horse patrols could be discerned.
Looking down over the rails Prince Nesvitski saw the rapid, noisy little waves of the Enns, which rippling and eddying round the piles of the bridge chased each other along.
"How's it you're not drunk today?" said Nesvitski when the other had ridden up to him.
But you are strong, healthy, cheerful, and excited, and are surrounded by other such excitedly animated and healthy men.
With his shaggy head thrown back like birds when they drink, pressing his spurs mercilessly into the sides of his good horse, Bedouin, and sitting as though falling backwards in the saddle, he galloped to the other flank of the squadron and shouted in a hoarse voice to the men to look to their pistols.
These were the questions each man of the troops on the high ground above the bridge involuntarily asked himself with a sinking heart--watching the bridge and the hussars in the bright evening light and the blue tunics advancing from the other side with their bayonets and guns.
At that instant the sun began to hide behind the clouds, and other stretchers came into view before Rostov.
They had known each other previously in Petersburg, but had become more intimate when Prince Andrew was in Vienna with Kutuzov.
But Vienna is on the other side.
Then followed other questions just as simple: Was Kutuzov well?
But as you are a philosopher, be a consistent one, look at the other side of the question and you will see that your duty, on the contrary, is to take care of yourself.
And God only knows where your man Peter is, said the other adjutant.
Prince Andrew smiled involuntarily as he looked at the artillery officer Tushin, who silent and smiling, shifting from one stockinged foot to the other, glanced inquiringly with his large, intelligent, kindly eyes from Prince Andrew to the staff officer.
His idea was, first, to concentrate all the artillery in the center, and secondly, to withdraw the cavalry to the other side of the dip.
The retirement of the center to the other side of the dip in the ground at the rear was hurried and noisy, but the different companies did not get mixed.
As if urging each other on, the soldiers cried at each shot: Fine!
At the foot of the hill, a pale hussar cadet, supporting one hand with the other, came up to Tushin and asked for a seat.
With one hand he supported the other; he was pale and his jaw trembled, shivering feverishly.
Amid the general rumble, the groans and voices of the wounded were more distinctly heard than any other sound in the darkness of the night.
They were quarreling and fighting desperately, each trying to snatch from the other a boot they were both holding on to.
"One was damaged," answered the staff officer, "and the other I can't understand.
He was afraid of getting some other officer into trouble, and silently fixed his eyes on Bagration as a schoolboy who has blundered looks at an examiner.
He was alone now, except for a soldier who was sitting naked at the other side of the fire, warming his thin yellow body.
When he read that sentence, Pierre felt for the first time that some link which other people recognized had grown up between himself and Helene, and that thought both alarmed him, as if some obligation were being imposed on him which he could not fulfill, and pleased him as an entertaining supposition.
At the other end sat the younger and less important guests, and there too sat the members of the family, and Pierre and Helene, side by side.
At one end of the table, the old chamberlain was heard assuring an old baroness that he loved her passionately, at which she laughed; at the other could be heard the story of the misfortunes of some Mary Viktorovna or other.
And the other one is not here.
"It is done!" she said to the count, pointing triumphantly to the countess, who sat holding in one hand the snuffbox with its portrait and in the other the letter, and pressing them alternately to her lips.
About some Denisov or other, though he himself, I dare say, is braver than any of them.
They had not met for nearly half a year and, being at the age when young men take their first steps on life's road, each saw immense changes in the other, quite a new reflection of the society in which they had taken those first steps.
And the two friends told each other of their doings, the one of his hussar revels and life in the fighting line, the other of the pleasures and advantages of service under members of the Imperial family.
Farther and farther he rode away, stopping at other regiments, till at last only his white plumes were visible to Rostov from amid the suites that surrounded the Emperors.
Prince Andrew did neither: a look of animosity appeared on his face and the other turned away and went down the side of the corridor.
At dawn on the sixteenth of November, Denisov's squadron, in which Nicholas Rostov served and which was in Prince Bagration's detachment, moved from the place where it had spent the night, advancing into action as arranged, and after going behind other columns for about two thirds of a mile was stopped on the highroad.
Then Miloradovich looked round significantly at the other generals.
"Well and then?" asked the other voice.
Rostov spurred his horse, called to Sergeant Fedchenko and two other hussars, told them to follow him, and trotted downhill in the direction from which the shouting came.
He had felt perfectly sure that there were other troops in front of him and that the enemy must be at least six miles away.
One in a black uniform with white plumes in his hat rode a bobtailed chestnut horse, the other who was in a white uniform rode a black one.
Count! shouted Berg who ran up from the other side as eager as Boris.
One with a white plume in his hat seemed familiar to Rostov; the other on a beautiful chestnut horse (which Rostov fancied he had seen before) rode up to the ditch, struck his horse with his spurs, and giving it the rein leaped lightly over.
Those speeches were intended for quite other conditions, they were for the most part to be spoken at a moment of victory and triumph, generally when he was dying of wounds and the sovereign had thanked him for heroic deeds, and while dying he expressed the love his actions had proved.
Other columns after losing half their men were retreating in disorderly confused masses.
He did not regain consciousness till late in the day, when with other wounded and captured Russian officers he was carried to the hospital.
I'll tell you all about it some other time.
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!
The dinner, both the Lenten and the other fare, was splendid, yet he could not feel quite at ease till the end of the meal.
After the fish, which made a certain sensation, the count exchanged glances with the other committeemen.
Rostov was talking merrily to his two friends, one of whom was a dashing hussar and the other a notorious duelist and rake, and every now and then he glanced ironically at Pierre, whose preoccupied, absent-minded, and massive figure was a very noticeable one at the dinner.
Pierre went home, but Rostov with Dolokhov and Denisov stayed on at the club till late, listening to the gypsies and other singers.
He was pressing one hand to his left side, while the other clutched his drooping pistol.
Helene laughed, "that Dolokhov was my lover," she said in French with her coarse plainness of speech, uttering the word amant as casually as any other word, "and you believed it!
The old man too came up and kissed the waxen little hands that lay quietly crossed one on the other on her breast, and to him, too, her face seemed to say: "Ah, what have you done to me, and why?"
He paused, his gaze still on Pierre, and moved aside on the sofa by way of inviting the other to take a seat beside him.
"I must also inform you," said the Rhetor, "that our Order delivers its teaching not in words only but also by other means, which may perhaps have a stronger effect on the sincere seeker after wisdom and virtue than mere words.
Pierre hurriedly began taking off his right boot also and was going to tuck up the other trouser leg to save this stranger the trouble, but the Mason told him that was not necessary and gave him a slipper for his left foot.
After that they took his right hand, placed it on something, and told him to hold a pair of compasses to his left breast with the other hand and to repeat after someone who read aloud an oath of fidelity to the laws of the Order.
"In our temples we recognize no other distinctions," read the Grand Master, "but those between virtue and vice.
Pierre tried several times to speak, but, on one hand, Prince Vasili did not let him and, on the other, Pierre himself feared to begin to speak in the tone of decided refusal and disagreement in which he had firmly resolved to answer his father-in-law.
He blinked, went red, got up and sat down again, struggling with himself to do what was for him the most difficult thing in life--to say an unpleasant thing to a man's face, to say what the other, whoever he might be, did not expect.
There were other guests and the countess talked little to him, and only as he kissed her hand on taking leave said unexpectedly and in a whisper, with a strangely unsmiling face: Come to dinner tomorrow... in the evening.
Each made the other a warning gesture and stood still in the dim light beneath the curtain as if not wishing to leave that seclusion where they three were shut off from all the world.
He consoled himself with the thought that he fulfilled another of the precepts--that of reforming the human race--and had other virtues--love of his neighbor, and especially generosity.
The estates he had not before visited were each more picturesque than the other; the serfs everywhere seemed thriving and touchingly grateful for the benefits conferred on them.
They went out and walked about till dinnertime, talking of the political news and common acquaintances like people who do not know each other intimately.
The one and the other may serve as a pastime.
The whole world was divided into two unequal parts: one, our Pavlograd regiment; the other, all the rest.
The soldiers had biscuits dealt out to them freely, and they even shared them with the other squadrons.
In answer to Rostov's renewed questions, Denisov said, laughing, that he thought he remembered that some other fellow had got mixed up in it, but that it was all nonsense and rubbish, and he did not in the least fear any kind of trial, and that if those scoundrels dared attack him he would give them an answer that they would not easily forget.
His neighbor on the other side, who lay motionless some distance from him with his head thrown back, was a young soldier with a snub nose.
His face had the same swollen pallor as the faces of the other hospital patients, but it was not this that struck Rostov.
Rostov even noticed that Denisov did not like to be reminded of the regiment, or in general of that other free life which was going on outside the hospital.
He noted this down that same evening, among other facts he felt to be of historic importance.
Boris, with one leg crossed over the other and stroking his left hand with the slender fingers of his right, listened to Rostov as a general listens to the report of a subordinate, now looking aside and now gazing straight into Rostov's eyes with the same veiled look.
"What is it?" asked the person in the other room.
On other estates the serfs' compulsory labor was commuted for a quitrent.
The other half he spent in "Bogucharovo Cloister," as his father called Prince Andrew's estate.
Then suddenly the grating sound of a harsh voice was heard from the other side of the door, and the officer--with pale face and trembling lips--came out and passed through the waiting room, clutching his head.
Having talked for a little while in the general circle, Speranski rose and coming up to Prince Andrew took him along to the other end of the room.
Sulphur is of an oily and fiery nature; in combination with salt by its fiery nature it arouses a desire in the latter by means of which it attracts mercury, seizes it, holds it, and in combination produces other bodies.
It seemed as if I chattered incessantly with other people and suddenly remembered that this could not please him, and I wished to come close to him and embrace him.
Now the other sister, though they are the same family, is quite different-- an unpleasant character and has not the same intelligence.
Seeing that her mother was still praying she ran on tiptoe to the bed and, rapidly slipping one little foot against the other, pushed off her slippers and jumped onto the bed the countess had feared might become her grave.
"If you please, Miss! allow me," said the maid, who on her knees was pulling the skirt straight and shifting the pins from one side of her mouth to the other with her tongue.
Before and behind them other visitors were entering, also talking in low tones and wearing ball dresses.
The count was at the other end of the room.
The other guests were Gervais, Magnitski, and Stolypin.
Pierre disturbed the symmetry by moving a chair for himself, and Berg and Vera immediately began their evening party, interrupting each other in their efforts to entertain their guest.
After Boris came a lady with the colonel, then the general himself, then the Rostovs, and the party became unquestionably exactly like all other evening parties.
Could she, like other women" (Vera meant herself), "love a man once for all and remain true to him forever?
The party was very successful and quite like other parties he had seen.
It was as if they had not known each other till now.
What had she to do with the justice or injustice of other people?
This comforting dream and hope were given her by God's folk-- the half-witted and other pilgrims who visited her without the prince's knowledge.
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 they were carried forward--and you did not look at the other page.
The other day when he came out from Mass in full uniform, Michael Sidorych...
After listening a few moments in silence, the count and his attendant convinced themselves that the hounds had separated into two packs: the sound of the larger pack, eagerly giving tongue, began to die away in the distance, the other pack rushed by the wood past the count, and it was with this that Daniel's voice was heard calling ulyulyu.
The count turned and saw on his right Mitka staring at him with eyes starting out of his head, raising his cap and pointing before him to the other side.
"Uncle's" huntsman was galloping from the other side across the wolf's path and his borzois once more stopped the animal's advance.
Two huntsmen galloped up to the dogs; one in a red cap, the other, a stranger, in a green coat.
Well, I am like any other dog as long as it's not a question of coursing.
Anisya Fedorovna's smiling face reappeared in the doorway and behind hers other faces...
I have no other friend like her and never shall have.
Such were Dimmler the musician and his wife, Vogel the dancing master and his family, Belova, an old maiden lady, an inmate of the house, and many others such as Petya's tutors, the girls' former governess, and other people who simply found it preferable and more advantageous to live in the count's house than at home.
At other times she praised Julie to him and advised him to go to Moscow during the holidays to amuse himself.
What she drew from the guitar would have had no meaning for other listeners, but in her imagination a whole series of reminiscences arose from those sounds.
While they were talking a maid thrust her head in at the other door of the sitting room.
Half an hour later there appeared among the other mummers in the ballroom an old lady in a hooped skirt--this was Nicholas.
With screams squeals, and waving of whips that caused even the shaft horses to gallop--the other sleighs followed.
With Sonya's help and the maid's, Natasha got the glass she held into the right position opposite the other; her face assumed a serious expression and she sat silent.
Ah! from suffering there is no other refuge.
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.
Natasha, on the other hand, having put on her best gown, was in the highest spirits.
Marya Dmitrievna, who knew how the prince had received the Rostovs, pretended not to notice how upset Natasha was and jested resolutely and loudly at table with the count and the other guests.
But looking into his eyes she was frightened, realizing that there was not that barrier of modesty she had always felt between herself and other men.
Natasha went back to her father in the other box, now quite submissive to the world she found herself in.
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.
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.
Dolokhov, who needed Anatole Kuragin's name, position, and connections as a bait to draw rich young men into his gambling set, made use of him and amused himself at his expense without letting the other feel it.
There is no other way for me, the letter began.
Dolokhov shouted to him from the other room.
Natasha looked from one to the other as a hunted and wounded animal looks at the approaching dogs and sportsmen.
After all, you must understand that besides your pleasure there is such a thing as other people's happiness and peace, and that you are ruining a whole life for the sake of amusing yourself!
A deed done is irrevocable, and its result coinciding in time with the actions of millions of other men assumes an historic significance.
Before leaving, Napoleon showed favor to the emperor, kings, and princes who had deserved it, reprimanded the kings and princes with whom he was dissatisfied, presented pearls and diamonds of his own--that is, which he had taken from other kings--to the Empress of Austria, and having, as his historian tells us, tenderly embraced the Empress Marie Louise--who regarded him as her husband, though he had left another wife in Paris--left her grieved by the parting which she seemed hardly able to bear.
Countess Bezukhova was present among other Russian ladies who had followed the sovereign from Petersburg to Vilna and eclipsed the refined Polish ladies by her massive, so-called Russian type of beauty.
They rode through the village of Rykonty, past tethered French hussar horses, past sentinels and men who saluted their colonel and stared with curiosity at a Russian uniform, and came out at the other end of the village.
He heard hurried footsteps beyond the door, both halves of it were opened rapidly; all was silent and then from the study the sound was heard of other steps, firm and resolute--they were those of Napoleon.
He went in silence from one corner of the room to the other and again stopped in front of Balashev.
To the one camp belonged the old prince, Mademoiselle Bourienne, and the architect; to the other Princess Mary, Dessalles, little Nicholas, and all the old nurses and maids.
To the third party--in which the Emperor had most confidence--belonged the courtiers who tried to arrange compromises between the other two.
They insisted on the retention of the camp at Drissa, according to Pfuel's plan, but on changing the movements of the other armies.
This view was very general in the upper army circles and found support also in Petersburg and from the chancellor, Rumyantsev, who, for other reasons of state, was in favor of peace.
In the troubled waters of conflicting and intersecting intrigues that eddied about the Emperor's headquarters, it was possible to succeed in many ways unthinkable at other times.
There was about him something of Weyrother, Mack, and Schmidt, and many other German theorist-generals whom Prince Andrew had seen in 1805, but he was more typical than any of them.
An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets himself and other people.
First they camped gaily before Vilna, making acquaintance with the Polish landowners, preparing for reviews and being reviewed by the Emperor and other high commanders.
"Don't mess Mary Hendrikhovna's dress!" cried other voices.
The French dragoon officer was hopping with one foot on the ground, the other being caught in the stirrup.
Pierre still went into society, drank as much and led the same idle and dissipated life, because besides the hours he spent at the Rostovs' there were other hours he had to spend somehow, and the habits and acquaintances he had made in Moscow formed a current that bore him along irresistibly.
We ourselves will not delay to appear among our people in that Capital and in other parts of our realm for consultation, and for the direction of all our levies, both those now barring the enemy's path and those freshly formed to defeat him wherever he may appear.
They looked at each other with dismayed and embarrassed faces.
If the noble awistocwacy of the pwovince of Moscow thinks fit, it can show its loyalty to our sov'weign the Empewah in other ways.
Adraksin was in uniform, and whether as a result of the uniform or from some other cause Pierre saw before him quite a different man.
Many other orators spoke after the excited nobleman, and all in the same tone.
"I only said that it would be more to the purpose to make sacrifices when we know what is needed!" said he, trying to be heard above the other voices.
One of the old men nearest to him looked round, but his attention was immediately diverted by an exclamation at the other side of the table.
The other was the mayor, a man with a thin sallow face and narrow beard.
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.
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.
They say the other day Matthew Ivanych Platov drove them into the river Marina and drowned some eighteen thousand in one day.
Half the street was in shadow, the other half brightly lit by the sun.
The roar of guns, the whistling of projectiles, and the piteous moaning of the cook, which rose above the other sounds, did not cease for a moment.
On the sloping descent to the Dnieper Alpatych's cart and that of the innkeeper's wife, which were slowly moving amid the rows of soldiers and of other vehicles, had to stop.
Napoleon's historian Thiers, like other of his historians, trying to justify his hero says that he was drawn to the walls of Moscow against his will.
He is as right as other historians who look for the explanation of historic events in the will of one man; he is as right as the Russian historians who maintain that Napoleon was drawn to Moscow by the skill of the Russian commanders.
In the room were her nurse and other women.
The sun had reached the other side of the house, and its slanting rays shone into the open window, lighting up the room and part of the morocco cushion at which Princess Mary was looking.
Dunyasha, the nurse, and the other maids could not say in how far Mademoiselle Bourienne's statement was correct.
Some people began to laugh, others continued to watch in dismay the executioner who was undressing the other man.
On the other question, how the battle of Borodino and the preceding battle of Shevardino were fought, there also exists a definite and well- known, but quite false, conception.
Why was it more strongly fortified than any other post?
By crossing to the other side of the Kolocha to the left of the highroad, Napoleon shifted the whole forthcoming battle from right to left (looking from the Russian side) and transferred it to the plain between Utitsa, Semenovsk, and Borodino--a plain no more advantageous as a position than any other plain in Russia--and there the whole battle of the twenty-sixth of August took place.
We have ten thousand carts, but we need other things as well--we must manage as best we can!
"Borodino," the other corrected him.
The faces all expressed animation and apprehension, but it seemed to Pierre that the cause of the excitement shown in some of these faces lay chiefly in questions of personal success; his mind, however, was occupied by the different expression he saw on other faces--an expression that spoke not of personal matters but of the universal questions of life and death.
He did not know that it would become more memorable to him than any other spot on the plain of Borodino.
They plunder other people's houses, issue false paper money, and worst of all they kill my children and my father, and then talk of rules of war and magnanimity to foes!
The ball represented the terrestrial globe and the stick in his other hand a scepter.
After giving these and other commands he returned to his tent, and the dispositions for the battle were written down from his dictation.
General Sorbier must be ready at the first order to advance with all the howitzers of the Guard's artillery against either one or other of the entrenchments.
All this, like the other parts of the disposition, was not and could not be executed.
There was a bridge ahead of him, where other soldiers stood firing.
He did not notice the sound of the bullets whistling from every side, or the projectiles that flew over him, did not see the enemy on the other side of the river, and for a long time did not notice the killed and wounded, though many fell near him.
In line with the knoll on both sides stood other guns which also fired incessantly.
The infantry moved in the same way, sometimes running to quite other places than those they were ordered to go to.
From the other side a battalion commander rode up.
For a little while he was left alone and involuntarily witnessed what was taking place on the other two tables.
On the other table, round which many people were crowding, a tall well-fed man lay on his back with his head thrown back.
Two doctors--one of whom was pale and trembling--were silently doing something to this man's other, gory leg.
Other crowds, exhausted and hungry, went forward led by their officers.
A modern branch of mathematics having achieved the art of dealing with the infinitely small can now yield solutions in other more complex problems of motion which used to appear insoluble.
Men leave their customary pursuits, hasten from one side of Europe to the other, plunder and slaughter one another, triumph and are plunged in despair, and for some years the whole course of life is altered and presents an intensive movement which first increases and then slackens.
After hearing what was being said by one or other of these groups he generally turned away with an air of disappointment, as though they were not speaking of anything he wished to hear.
On the other side sat Count Ostermann- Tolstoy, seemingly absorbed in his own thoughts.
They waited for him from four till six o'clock and did not begin their deliberations all that time but talked in low tones of other matters.
The other generals, however, understood it and, leaving aside the question of Moscow, spoke of the direction the army should take in its retreat.
"Well, yes," said she, "it may be that he has other sentiments for me than those of a father, but that is not a reason for me to shut my door on him.
Pierre heard the other voices repeat.
Every day thousands of men wounded at Borodino were brought in by the Dorogomilov gate and taken to various parts of Moscow, and thousands of carts conveyed the inhabitants and their possessions out by the other gates.
When Natasha set to work two cases were standing open in the ballroom, one almost full up with crockery, the other with carpets.
"I won't!" cried Natasha, with one hand holding back the hair that hung over her perspiring face, while with the other she pressed down the carpets.
That's what other people do.
The postilion and all the other servants did the same.
The footman sprang onto the box of the moving coach which jolted as it passed out of the yard onto the uneven roadway; the other vehicles jolted in their turn, and the procession of carriages moved up the street.
In Kudrino, from the Nikitski, Presnya, and Podnovinsk Streets came several other trains of vehicles similar to the Rostovs', and as they passed along the Sadovaya Street the carriages and carts formed two rows abreast.
But as soon as the man had left the room Pierre took up his hat which was lying on the table and went out of his study by the other door.
Kutuzov himself had driven round by side streets to the other side of Moscow.
The main army was on the other side of Moscow or beyond it.
Two officers, one with a scarf over his uniform and mounted on a lean, dark-gray horse, the other in an overcoat and on foot, stood at the corner of Ilyinka Street, talking.
Come along then! the publican and the tall young fellow repeated one after the other, and they moved up the street together.
Why were bundles of useless papers from the government offices, and Leppich's balloon and other articles removed?
When lunatics command our armies God evidently means these other madmen to be free.
"I had other duties," thought he.
Other detachments passed through the Kremlin and encamped along the Moroseyka, the Lubyanka, and Pokrovka Streets.
Many of them appropriated several houses, chalked their names on them, and quarreled and even fought with other companies for them.
All around the quarters occupied by the French were other regions still unexplored and unoccupied where, they thought, yet greater riches might be found.
Moscow when occupied by the enemy did not remain intact like Berlin, Vienna, and other towns, simply because its inhabitants abandoned it and did not welcome the French with bread and salt, nor bring them the keys of the city.
The other was that vague and quite Russian feeling of contempt for everything conventional, artificial, and human--for everything the majority of men regard as the greatest good in the world.
One was an officer--a tall, soldierly, handsome man--the other evidently a private or an orderly, sunburned, short, and thin, with sunken cheeks and a dull expression.
The captain, on the other hand, seemed very cheerful.
Two of the gazers went round to the other side of the coach and sat down on its steps.
It's more to the left, why, Little Mytishchi is over there, and this is right on the other side.
Stepping cautiously from one foot to the other she ran like a kitten the few steps to the door and grasped the cold door handle.
Though with the intimacy now established between the wounded man and Natasha the thought occurred that should he recover their former engagement would be renewed, no one--least of all Natasha and Prince Andrew--spoke of this: the unsettled question of life and death, which hung not only over Bolkonski but over all Russia, shut out all other considerations.
The French followed him with astonishment in their eyes chiefly because Pierre, unlike all the other Russians who gazed at the French with fear and curiosity, paid no attention to them.
As he was going along a foot path across a wide- open space adjoining the Povarskoy on one side and the gardens of Prince Gruzinski's house on the other, Pierre suddenly heard the desperate weeping of a woman close to him.
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.
Other French soldiers standing below went up to the drawer.
The other, whose appearance particularly struck Pierre, was a long, lank, round-shouldered, fair-haired man, slow in his movements and with an idiotic expression of face.
With the naive conviction of young men in a merry mood that other men's wives were created for them, Rostov did not leave the lady's side and treated her husband in a friendly and conspiratorial style, as if, without speaking of it, they knew how capitally Nicholas and the lady would get on together.
But, my dear boy, among other things you are too attentive to the other, the blonde.
Nicholas took the two letters, one of which was from his mother and the other from Sonya.
The other, from the countess, described their last days in Moscow, their departure, the fire, and the destruction of all their property.
She had in fact seen nothing then but had mentioned the first thing that came into her head, but what she had invented then seemed to her now as real as any other recollection.
In spite of this he was placed that day with the other arrested suspects, as the separate room he had occupied was required by an officer.
On the third day he was taken with the others to a house where a French general with a white mustache sat with two colonels and other Frenchmen with scarves on their arms.
He felt this in the looks of the soldiers who, marching in regular ranks briskly and gaily, were escorting him and the other criminals; he felt it in the looks of an important French official in a carriage and pair driven by a soldier, whom they met on the way.
He and the other prisoners were taken to the right side of the Virgin's Field, to a large white house with an immense garden not far from the convent.
One was tall and thin, the other dark, shaggy, and sinewy, with a flat nose.
One crossed himself continually, the other scratched his back and made a movement of the lips resembling a smile.
Having unwound the string that tied the band on one leg, he carefully coiled it up and immediately set to work on the other leg, glancing up at Pierre.
While one hand hung up the first string the other was already unwinding the band on the second leg.
Pierre heard the same kind voice saying at the other end of the shed.
To all the other prisoners Platon Karataev seemed a most ordinary soldier.
"Come, come to him, Mary," said Natasha, leading her into the other room.
In one thin, translucently white hand he held a handkerchief, while with the other he stroked the delicate mustache he had grown, moving his fingers slowly.
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.
That flank march might not only have failed to give any advantage to the Russian army, but might in other circumstances have led to its destruction.
This letter having no other object, I pray God, monsieur le Prince Koutouzov, to keep you in His holy and gracious protection!
One man said he had seen Ermolov ride past with some other generals, others said he must have returned home.
Orlov-Denisov, still waiting for the other columns to arrive, advanced no further.
One of the first bullets killed him, and other bullets killed many of his men.
That night the doors were again broken open, the padlocks smashed, the books mutilated, and other disorders perpetrated.
'You see, St. Thomas,' he said to me the other day.
The other day if it had not been for you that affair would have ended ill.
What concern was it of his that somewhere or other that woman was leading the life she preferred?
The officers, who had come from the other sheds, were all strangers to Pierre and much better dressed than he.
Kutuzov sat up with one leg hanging down from the bed and his big paunch resting against the other which was doubled under him.
Each of them desired nothing more than to give himself up as a prisoner to escape from all this horror and misery; but on the one hand the force of this common attraction to Smolensk, their goal, drew each of them in the same direction; on the other hand an army corps could not surrender to a company, and though the French availed themselves of every convenient opportunity to detach themselves and to surrender on the slightest decent pretext, such pretexts did not always occur.
To strain the facts to fit the rules of history: to say that the field of battle at Borodino remained in the hands of the Russians, or that after Moscow there were other battles that destroyed Napoleon's army, is impossible.
In such actions, instead of two crowds opposing each other, the men disperse, attack singly, run away when attacked by stronger forces, but again attack when opportunity offers.
Ten men, battalions, or divisions, fighting fifteen men, battalions, or divisions, conquer--that is, kill or take captive--all the others, while themselves losing four, so that on the one side four and on the other fifteen were lost.
Two of the commanders of large parties--one a Pole and the other a German--sent invitations to Denisov almost simultaneously, requesting him to join up with their divisions to attack the convoy.
Beyond Shamshevo, Dolokhov was to observe the road in the same way, to find out at what distance there were other French troops.
Tikhon scratched his back with one hand and his head with the other, then suddenly his whole face expanded into a beaming, foolish grin, disclosing a gap where he had lost a tooth (that was why he was called Shcherbaty--the gap-toothed).
The arrival of Dolokhov diverted Petya's attention from the drummer boy, to whom Denisov had had some mutton and vodka given, and whom he had had dressed in a Russian coat so that he might be kept with their band and not sent away with the other prisoners.
"Oh, he's a hard nut to crack," said one of the officers who was sitting in the shadow at the other side of the fire.
However, he did not look at them now, but thought of other things.
His feeling of pity for this man frightened him and he wished to go away, but there was no other fire, and Pierre sat down, trying not to look at Platon.
So they asked the old man: 'What are you being punished for, Daddy?'--'I, my dear brothers,' said he, 'am being punished for my own and other men's sins.
Now it happened that in the group was the very man who had killed the other merchant.
One army fled and the other pursued.
She was gazing in the direction in which he had gone--to the other side of life.
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.
She saw his face, heard his voice, repeated his words and her own, and sometimes devised other words they might have spoken.
When one went out the other became restless and hastened to rejoin her.
She did not think of applying submission and self-abnegation to her own life, for she was accustomed to seek other joys, but she understood and loved in another those previously incomprehensible virtues.
"Well, you know," said the sharp-nosed man they called Jackdaw in a squeaky and unsteady voice, raising himself at the other side of the fire, "a plump man gets thin, but for a thin one it's death.
One was taller than the other; he wore an officer's hat and seemed quite exhausted.
About the same time he received letters from Prince Vasili and other Petersburg acquaintances speaking of his wife's debts.
The Cossacks carried off what they could to their camps, and the householders seized all they could find in other houses and moved it to their own, pretending that it was their property.
When two people quarrel they are always both in fault, and one's own guilt suddenly becomes terribly serious when the other is no longer alive.
Sometimes it seemed to him that other people were all as pleased as he was himself and merely tried to hide that pleasure by pretending to be busy with other interests.
Whether the preservation of my father's house in Moscow, or the glory of the Russian arms, or the prosperity of the Petersburg and other universities, or the freedom of Poland or the greatness of Russia, or the balance of power in Europe, or a certain kind of European culture called "progress" appear to me to be good or bad, I must admit that besides these things the action of every historic character has other more general purposes inaccessible to me.
Why did it happen in this and not in some other way?
Chance puts the Duc d'Enghien in his hands and unexpectedly causes him to kill him--thereby convincing the mob more forcibly than in any other way that he had the right, since he had the might.
The other way out--his mother's death-- never entered his head.
She is a very admirable young woman and you always liked her, but now suddenly you have got some notion or other in your head.
Among other things he spoke of the Bogucharovo elder.
In winter he visited his other villages or spent his time reading.
Countess Mary sat at the other end of the table.
And she not only saw no need of any other or better husband, but as all the powers of her soul were intent on serving that husband and family, she could not imagine and saw no interest in imagining how it would be if things were different.
She would begin to say something to her in a low tone from the other end of the room.
This meant two stockings, which by a secret process known only to herself Anna Makarovna used to knit at the same time on the same needles, and which, when they were ready, she always triumphantly drew, one out of the other, in the children's presence.
It is only to prevent some Pugachev or other from killing my children and yours, and Arakcheev from sending me off to some Military Settlement.
Then I took the matter in hand: I left him alone and began with nurse's help to get the other children up, telling him that I did not love him.
Of course he is right there," said Countess Mary, "but he forgets that we have other duties nearer to us, duties indicated to us by God Himself, and that though we might expose ourselves to risks we must not risk our children."
Having interrupted one another they both stopped to let the other continue.
They killed the king and many other people.
If instead of a divine power some other force has appeared, it should be explained in what this new force consists, for the whole interest of history lies precisely in that force.
One historian says that an event was produced by Napoleon's power, another that it was produced by Alexander's, a third that it was due to the power of some other person.
But the universal historian Gervinus, refuting this opinion of the specialist historian, tries to prove that the campaign of 1813 and the restoration of the Bourbons were due to other things beside Alexander's will--such as the activity of Stein, Metternich, Madame de Stael, Talleyrand, Fichte, Chateaubriand, and others.
This conception is the one handle by means of which the material of history, as at present expounded, can be dealt with, and anyone who breaks that handle off, as Buckle did, without finding some other method of treating historical material, merely deprives himself of the one possible way of dealing with it.
If the whole activity of the leaders serves as the expression of the people's will, as some historians suppose, then all the details of the court scandals contained in the biographies of a Napoleon or a Catherine serve to express the life of the nation, which is evident nonsense; but if it is only some particular side of the activity of an historical leader which serves to express the people's life, as other so-called "philosophical" historians believe, then to determine which side of the activity of a leader expresses the nation's life, we have first of all to know in what the nation's life consists.
The herd goes in that direction because the animal in front leads it and the collective will of all the other animals is vested in that leader.
That is, power is power: in other words, power is a word the meaning of which we do not understand.
On the other hand, even if we admitted that words could be the cause of events, history shows that the expression of the will of historical personages does not in most cases produce any effect, that is to say, their commands are often not executed, and sometimes the very opposite of what they order occurs.
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.
(1) Power is the relation of a given person to other individuals, in which the more this person expresses opinions, predictions, and justifications of the collective action that is performed, the less is his participation in that action.
Or in other words, the conception of a cause is inapplicable to the phenomena we are examining.
Atoms attract each other and atoms repel one another.
In regard to this question, history stands to the other sciences as experimental science stands to abstract science.
To solve the question of how freedom and necessity are combined and what constitutes the essence of these two conceptions, the philosophy of history can and should follow a path contrary to that taken by other sciences.
Man's free will differs from every other force in that man is directly conscious of it, but in the eyes of reason it in no way differs from any other force.
In another form but along the same path of reflection the other sciences have proceeded.
In the one case as in the other, on both sides the struggle provokes passion and stifles truth.
On the one hand there is fear and regret for the loss of the whole edifice constructed through the ages, on the other is the passion for destruction.
For a few minutes they held on to each other, kissing as if they hadn't seen each other in a week.
Well... they had been flirting with each other in the car.
It was probably the first money, other than the air fares, Señor Medena had been able to spend on Alex - and even then he had to do it through Felipa.
"You speak to each other across the room with your eyes," she said as if it were some incredible feat.
By whoever invited all these other people - I suppose because she was someone I knew.
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.
"I'll take her in the other room," she said, shaking her head when Alex started to assist her.
They loved one child as much as the other, but one child could never take the place of another.
I guess my life isn't very interesting to other people, but Alex and I like the way we live.
On the other side of the thick entry door was a sitting room with lush wine colored carpet.
Fighting with each other wasn't going to do anything but play into the hands of those instigating the trouble.
Alex was lounging with one shoulder against the wall on the other side of the family room when Carmen walked in.
He rolled to face her, his other hand seeking her waist and drawing her close.
