Assuming quite the pose of a society woman (heaven knows when and where she had learned it) she talked with her partner, fanning herself and smiling over the fan.

From that day the eldest princess quite changed toward Pierre and began knitting a striped scarf for him.

Princess Mary grew quite unconscious of her face and coiffure.
The little princess, like an old war horse that hears the trumpet, unconsciously and quite forgetting her condition, prepared for the familiar gallop of coquetry, without any ulterior motive or any struggle, but with naive and lighthearted gaiety.

This was quite true, but the count, the countess, and Natasha looked at her reproachfully.

The house stood cold and silent, as if quite regardless of who had come to it.
Is everything quite all right?

The same love of others, a desire to do something for them, a desire for their approval.--So I lived for others, and not almost, but quite, ruined my life.
"Yes, if you put it like that it's quite a different matter," said Prince Andrew.
Princess Mary's embarrassment on her people's account was quite unnecessary.
So he was brought, quite blind, straight to her, and he goes up to her and falls down and says, 'Make me whole,' says he, 'and I'll give thee what the Tsar bestowed on me.'
Pelageya suddenly grew quite pale and clasped her hands.
It struck him as a surprise that Alexander treated Bonaparte as an equal and that the latter was quite at ease with the Tsar, as if such relations with an Emperor were an everyday matter to him.

The old oak, quite transfigured, spreading out a canopy of sappy dark-green foliage, stood rapt and slightly trembling in the rays of the evening sun.
Now reason suggested quite the opposite.

During the first weeks of his stay in Petersburg Prince Andrew felt the whole trend of thought he had formed during his life of seclusion quite overshadowed by the trifling cares that engrossed him in that city.
Had Speranski sprung from the same class as himself and possessed the same breeding and traditions, Bolkonski would soon have discovered his weak, human, unheroic sides; but as it was, Speranski's strange and logical turn of mind inspired him with respect all the more because he did not quite understand him.
I looked at him, still holding him in my arms, and saw that his face was young, but that he had no hair on his head and his features were quite changed.

Before Sonya and her mother, if Boris happened to be mentioned, she spoke quite freely of that episode as of some childish, long-forgotten matter that was not worth mentioning.
You have quite turned his head, I can see that....
You have quite turned his head, and why?
Only not quite my taste--he is so narrow, like the dining-room clock....
Peronskaya was quite ready.
She is quite equal to Marya Antonovna.
Beautiful and clever... they say Prince--is quite mad about her.
"I have the pleasure of being already acquainted, if the countess remembers me," said Prince Andrew with a low and courteous bow quite belying Peronskaya's remarks about his rudeness, and approaching Natasha he held out his arm to grasp her waist before he had completed his invitation.
"If she goes to her cousin first and then to another lady, she will be my wife," said Prince Andrew to himself quite to his own surprise, as he watched her.
They received Pierre in their small, new drawing-room, where it was impossible to sit down anywhere without disturbing its symmetry, neatness, and order; so it was quite comprehensible and not strange that Berg, having generously offered to disturb the symmetry of an armchair or of the sofa for his dear guest, but being apparently painfully undecided on the matter himself, eventually left the visitor to settle the question of selection.
The party was very successful and quite like other parties he had seen.
Prince Andrew seemed, and really was, quite a different, quite a new man.
"You know that from the very day you first came to Otradnoe I have loved you," she cried, quite convinced that she spoke the truth.
After their engagement, quite different, intimate, and natural relations sprang up between them.

He understands the matter so well that Daniel and I are often quite astounded, said Simon, well knowing what would please his master.
"Uncle" wrapped Natasha up warmly and took leave of her with quite a new tenderness.
No. I'm quite, quite all right.
Nicholas guessed what his mother's remarks were leading to and during one of these conversations induced her to speak quite frankly.
When I was quite little that used to be so with me.
Sonya, as always, did not quite keep pace with them, though they shared the same reminiscences.
Whether they were playing the ring and string game or the ruble game or talking as now, Nicholas did not leave Sonya's side, and gazed at her with quite new eyes.
He was only quite at ease when having poured several glasses of wine mechanically into his large mouth he felt a pleasant warmth in his body, an amiability toward all his fellows, and a readiness to respond superficially to every idea without probing it deeply.
She had quite abandoned the hope of getting married.
Julie, with whom she had corresponded for the last five years, was in Moscow, but proved to be quite alien to her when they met.
"I have read our protests about the Oldenburg affair and was surprised how badly the Note was worded," remarked Count Rostopchin in the casual tone of a man dealing with a subject quite familiar to him.
Her irritability had suddenly quite vanished, and her anxious, imploring eyes were fixed on him with greedy expectation.
If you'll allow me to leave my Natasha in your hands for a quarter of an hour, Princess, I'll drive round to see Anna Semenovna, it's quite near in the Dogs' Square, and then I'll come back for her.
No, I had better not think of him; not think of him but forget him, quite forget him for the present.
"And how can Sonya love Nicholas so calmly and quietly and wait so long and so patiently?" thought she, looking at Sonya, who also came in quite ready, with a fan in her hand.
Countess Bezukhova quite deserved her reputation of being a fascinating woman.
She could say what she did not think--especially what was flattering--quite simply and naturally.
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 is madly, quite madly, in love with you, my dear.
At that moment this all seemed quite easy, simple, and clear to Natasha.
I am quite out of horses.
Natasha is not quite well; she's in her room and would like to see you.
He thought she would give him her hand as usual; but she, stepping up to him, stopped, breathing heavily, her arms hanging lifelessly just in the pose she used to stand in when she went to the middle of the ballroom to sing, but with quite a different expression of face.
Napoleon almost screamed, quite to his own surprise.
He had grown, become rosier, had curly dark hair, and, when merry and laughing, quite unconsciously lifted the upper lip of his pretty little mouth just as the little princess used to do.
It was one of the millions of proposals, one as good as another, that could be made as long as it was quite unknown what character the war would take.
"Be quite easy," he continued playfully, as he adroitly took the gold coin in his palm.
They're quite beside themselves; I have already told them...
And not the face she had known ever since she could remember and had always seen at a distance, but the timid, feeble face she had seen for the first time quite closely, with all its wrinkles and details, when she stooped near to his mouth to catch what he said.
He saw that his hero and commander was following quite a different train of thought.
And the people too are quite mutinous--they no longer obey, even my maid has taken to being rude.
I can tell you quite clearly, because I constructed nearly all our entrenchments.
"On the contrary it's very interesting!" replied Pierre not quite truthfully.
The question that had perturbed Pierre on the Mozhaysk hill and all that day now seemed to him quite clear and completely solved.
Though it was not clear what the artist meant to express by depicting the so-called King of Rome spiking the earth with a stick, the allegory apparently seemed to Napoleon, as it had done to all who had seen it in Paris, quite clear and very pleasing.
A young round-faced officer, quite a boy still and evidently only just out of the Cadet College, who was zealously commanding the two guns entrusted to him, addressed Pierre sternly.
The infantry moved in the same way, sometimes running to quite other places than those they were ordered to go to.
But the liveliest attention was attracted by occurrences quite apart from, and unconnected with, the battle.
Learned military authorities quite seriously tell us that Kutuzov should have moved his army to the Kaluga road long before reaching Fili, and that somebody actually submitted such a proposal to him.
The first people to go away were the rich educated people who knew quite well that Vienna and Berlin had remained intact and that during Napoleon's occupation the inhabitants had spent their time pleasantly in the company of the charming Frenchmen whom the Russians, and especially the Russian ladies, then liked so much.
Pierre went on with the soldiers, quite forgetting that his inn was at the bottom of the hill and that he had already passed it.
Pierre did not understand what his benefactor was saying, but he knew (the categories of thoughts were also quite distinct in his dream) that he was talking of goodness and the possibility of being what they were.
But hard as they all worked till quite late that night, they could not get everything packed.
He was being conveyed in a caleche with a raised hood, and was quite covered by an apron.
The countess glanced at her daughter, saw her face full of shame for her mother, saw her agitation, and understood why her husband did not turn to look at her now, and she glanced round quite disconcerted.
Sonya too was busy all this time, but the aim of her efforts was quite different from Natasha's.
Tradesmen and their assistants (of whom there were but few) moved about among the soldiers quite bewildered.
The Povarskaya was quite still and deserted.
Having reached his country house and begun to give orders about domestic arrangements, the count grew quite tranquil.
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.
While Pierre, standing in the middle of the room, was talking to himself in this way, the study door opened and on the threshold appeared the figure of Makar Alexeevich, always so timid before but now quite transformed.
I am quite at your service.
"Yes--love," he thought again quite clearly.
The art of his reading was supposed to lie in rolling out the words, quite independently of their meaning, in a loud and singsong voice alternating between a despairing wail and a tender murmur, so that the wail fell quite at random on one word and the murmur on another.
We are at home on Thursdays--today is Thursday, so please come and see us quite informally, said the governor, taking leave of him.
He felt that the being before him was quite different from, and better than, anyone he had met before, and above all better than himself.
Nicholas noticed this, as he noticed every shade of Princess Mary's character with an observation unusual to him, and everything confirmed his conviction that she was a quite unusual and extraordinary being.
Nicholas blushed and was confused when people spoke to him about the princess (as she did when he was mentioned) and even when he thought of her, but in her presence he felt quite at ease, and said not at all what he had prepared, but what, quite appropriately, occurred to him at the moment.
It was the same face he had seen before, there was the same general expression of refined, inner, spiritual labor, but now it was quite differently lit up.
This unexpected and, as it seemed to Nicholas, quite voluntary letter from Sonya freed him from the knot that fettered him and from which there had seemed no escape.
It seemed that he had quite forgotten Pierre.
His faculties were quite numbed, he was stupefied, and noticing nothing around him went on moving his legs as the others did till they all stopped and he stopped too.
His head was quite round, his back, chest, shoulders, and even his arms, which he held as if ever ready to embrace something, were rounded, his pleasant smile and his large, gentle brown eyes were also round.
He did not himself know his age and was quite unable to determine it.
Is he quite well?
He dreamed that he was lying in the room he really was in, but that he was quite well and unwounded.
The discovery of these laws is only possible when we have quite abandoned the attempt to find the cause in the will of some one man, just as the discovery of the laws of the motion of the planets was possible only when men abandoned the conception of the fixity of the earth.
As often happens when someone we have trusted is no longer before our eyes, it suddenly seemed quite clear and obvious to him that the sergeant was an impostor, that he had lied, and that the whole Russian attack would be ruined by the absence of those two regiments, which he would lead away heaven only knew where.
It is quite light.
Adjutants and generals galloped about, shouted, grew angry, quarreled, said they had come quite wrong and were late, gave vent to a little abuse, and at last gave it all up and went forward, simply to get somewhere.
General Bagovut, a fighting old soldier of placid temperament, being also upset by all the delay, confusion, and cross-purposes, fell into a rage to everybody's surprise and quite contrary to his usual character and said disagreeable things to Toll.
And his division remained under fire for some time quite uselessly.
But if the aim of the battle was what actually resulted and what all the Russians of that day desired--to drive the French out of Russia and destroy their army--it is quite clear that the battle of Tarutino, just because of its incongruities, was exactly what was wanted at that stage of the campaign.
The historians quite falsely represent Napoleon's faculties as having weakened in Moscow, and do so only because the results did not justify his actions.
"It's good, quite good, thank you," said the Frenchman, in French, "but there must be some linen left over."
He now often remembered his conversation with Prince Andrew and quite agreed with him, though he understood Prince Andrew's thoughts somewhat differently.
Dokhturov went to Malo- Yaroslavets, but Kutuzov lingered with the main army and gave orders for the evacuation of Kaluga--a retreat beyond which town seemed to him quite possible.
An army has suffered defeat, and at once a people loses its rights in proportion to the severity of the reverse, and if its army suffers a complete defeat the nation is quite subjugated.
That unknown quantity is the spirit of the army, that is to say, the greater or lesser readiness to fight and face danger felt by all the men composing an army, quite independently of whether they are, or are not, fighting under the command of a genius, in two--or three-line formation, with cudgels or with rifles that repeat thirty times a minute.
Please excuse its not being quite dry.
Next day when Denisov had left Pokrovsk, having quite forgotten about this peasant, it was reported to him that Tikhon had attached himself to their party and asked to be allowed to remain with it.
I was quite forgetting! he suddenly cried.
It was still quite dark outside.
The Cossacks saw that his arms and legs jerked rapidly though his head was quite motionless.
If the aim of the Russians consisted in cutting off and capturing Napoleon and his marshals--and that aim was not merely frustrated but all attempts to attain it were most shamefully baffled--then this last period of the campaign is quite rightly considered by the French to be a series of victories, and quite wrongly considered victorious by Russian historians.
There never was or could have been such an aim, for it would have been senseless and its attainment quite impossible.
But the French troops quite rightly did not consider that this suited them, since death by hunger and cold awaited them in flight or captivity alike.
I thought quite differently.
But she is quite original, strange, new, and unknown.
Let us be quite, quite friends.
Not merely in these cases but continually did that old man--who by experience of life had reached the conviction that thoughts and the words serving as their expression are not what move people--use quite meaningless words that happened to enter his head.
One's quite frozen and the other's an awful swaggerer.
One was taller than the other; he wore an officer's hat and seemed quite exhausted.
At present he still forgot what was said to him and still did not see what was before his eyes, but he now looked with a scarcely perceptible and seemingly ironic smile at what was before him and listened to what was said, though evidently seeing and hearing something quite different.
"Yes, yes," she said, answering something quite different.
They say men are friends when they are quite different.
Really he is quite unlike him-- in everything.
The weariness she had plainly shown before had now quite passed off.
I am happy for your sake, said Princess Mary, who because of those tears quite forgave Natasha's joy.
The state of the count's affairs became quite obvious a month after his death, surprising everyone by the immense total of small debts the existence of which no one had suspected.
He could not have said by what standard he judged what he should or should not do, but the standard was quite firm and definite in his own mind.
He understood what she was weeping about, but could not in his heart at once agree with her that what he had regarded from childhood as quite an everyday event was wrong.
It really seemed that Sonya did not feel her position trying, and had grown quite reconciled to her lot as a sterile flower.
But today she quite forgot that and was hurt that he should be angry with her without any reason, and she felt unhappy.
That happened only when, as was the case that day, her husband returned home, or a sick child was convalescent, or when she and Countess Mary spoke of Prince Andrew (she never mentioned him to her husband, who she imagined was jealous of Prince Andrew's memory), or on the rare occasions when something happened to induce her to sing, a practice she had quite abandoned since her marriage.
And she deduced the essentials of his wishes quite correctly, and having once arrived at them clung to them tenaciously.
Thus in a time of trouble ever memorable to him after the birth of their first child who was delicate, when they had to change the wet nurse three times and Natasha fell ill from despair, Pierre one day told her of Rousseau's view, with which he quite agreed, that to have a wet nurse is unnatural and harmful.
But only what was really good in him was reflected in his wife, all that was not quite good was rejected.
The countess was now over sixty, was quite gray, and wore a cap with a frill that surrounded her face.
At tea all sat in their accustomed places: Nicholas beside the stove at a small table where his tea was handed to him; Milka, the old gray borzoi bitch (daughter of the first Milka), with a quite gray face and large black eyes that seemed more prominent than ever, lay on the armchair beside him; Denisov, whose curly hair, mustache, and whiskers had turned half gray, sat beside countess Mary with his general's tunic unbuttoned; Pierre sat between his wife and the old countess.
They were for the most part quite insignificant trifles, but did not seem so to the mother or to the father either, now that he read this diary about his children for the first time.
"I quite, quite approve, my dearest!" said he with a significant look, and after a short pause he added: "And I behaved badly today.
As I see it you were quite right, and I told Natasha so.
Natasha and Pierre, left alone, also began to talk as only a husband and wife can talk, that is, with extraordinary clearness and rapidity, understanding and expressing each other's thoughts in ways contrary to all rules of logic, without premises, deductions, or conclusions, and in a quite peculiar way.
You won't escape!--from that moment this conversation began, contrary to all the laws of logic and contrary to them because quite different subjects were talked about at one and the same time.
"I have quite lost the knack of talking to ladies," he said.
But in spite of every desire to regard it as known, anyone reading many historical works cannot help doubting whether this new force, so variously understood by the historians themselves, is really quite well known to everybody.
As soon as historians of different nationalities and tendencies begin to describe the same event, the replies they give immediately lose all meaning, for this force is understood by them all not only differently but often in quite contradictory ways.
A third class of historians--the so-called historians of culture-- following the path laid down by the universal historians who sometimes accept writers and ladies as forces producing events--again take that force to be something quite different.
The historians of culture are quite consistent in regard to their progenitors, the writers of universal histories, for if historical events may be explained by the fact that certain persons treated one another in such and such ways, why not explain them by the fact that such and such people wrote such and such books?
The universal historians give contradictory replies to that question, while the historians of culture evade it and answer something quite different.
This reply is quite satisfactory if we believe that the power was given him by God.
A military organization may be quite correctly compared to a cone, of which the base with the largest diameter consists of the rank and file; the next higher and smaller section of the cone consists of the next higher grades of the army, and so on to the apex, the point of which will represent the commander-in-chief.
This consciousness is a source of self-cognition quite apart from and independent of reason.
But even if--imagining a man quite exempt from all influences, examining only his momentary action in the present, unevoked by any cause--we were to admit so infinitely small a remainder of inevitability as equaled zero, we should even then not have arrived at the conception of complete freedom in man, for a being uninfluenced by the external world, standing outside of time and independent of cause, is no longer a man.
In the same way we can never imagine the action of a man quite devoid of freedom and entirely subject to the law of inevitability.
It was one thing to tell herself everything was resolved, but quite another to thoroughly accept something she had always considered wrong.
It was quite another to trick her into betraying her father.
Judging by the conversation she had overheard yesterday between Darcie and Bordeaux, the woman had lived through quite an experience of her own.
Yes. Quite a few.

She still didn't quite trust he'd keep his word, but she prayed with every ounce of her soul that he did.
Deidre still didn't quite believe the others were right.
Cynthia sighed, not quite sure how to answer.
That's quite a coincidence, their being out here at the time we learn about the bones.
I can't answer that for sure, but don't you think their sudden interest in the property and the discovery of the bones is quite a coincidence?
That's quite a coincidence, isn't it?
The world faded into shadow and light then into an uncomfortable darkness, not quite sleep but not consciousness either.
What he couldn't quite rationalize: what he would've done if she hadn't gotten lucky and Darkyn didn't want his mate.
The cultured mannerisms that made talking to Andre comfortable were quite different from Wynn.
Deidre lay awake in bed for quite a while, sorting through the events of the weekend.
Quite sure, my Prince.
"Not quite," said he, finally.
I think I shall keep this Wizard until a new Sorcerer is ready to pick, for he seems quite skillful and may be of use to us.
"No," answered the little man, "you are quite right.
Next the Wizard poured a pool of oil from the can upon the glass floor, where it covered quite a broad surface.
So he carried the lantern back for quite a distance, while Dorothy and the Wizard followed at his side.
The meat was smoking hot and the knives and forks were performing strange antics and jumping here and there in quite a puzzling way.
We who live here much prefer to be invisible; for we can still hug and kiss one another, and are quite safe from the bears.

And I am afraid of him; I have now become quite calm, quite calm.
Quite beside themselves, Yakov Alpatych; they've fetched another barrel.
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.
So the histories say, and it is all quite wrong, as anyone who cares to look into the matter can easily convince himself.

I've been quite a problem to you, haven't I?
The decision made to face death soon, the only thing she hadn't quite worked out was how she planned to do it.
Once more something whistled, but this time quite close, swooping downwards like a little bird; a flame flashed in the middle of the street, something exploded, and the street was shrouded in smoke.
That redoubt was quite senseless in front of the position where the battle was accepted.
There is quite a list, isn't there?
