When I think of the benefactors of the race, whom we have apotheosized as messengers from heaven, bearers of divine gifts to man, I do not see in my mind any retinue at their heels, any carload of fashionable furniture.
It will not see me till it comes very near.
Now, let's see how this might come about.
I take all my other friends to see this king-tree.

"Well, then," answered the stranger, "I will see what they can do for me at the Planters' Tavern, round the corner;" and he rode away.
Do you want to see it?
"What sort of place is this?" asked the boy, trying to see more clearly through the gloom.
He could see a green open space just beyond; and then the woods seemed to be thicker and darker.
We went out to see the hero that had withstood so many tempests, and it wrung my heart to see him prostrate who had mightily striven and was now mightily fallen.
Will we see any dolphins, Dad?
I don't see why it matters.
I guess it was storming so bad that they didn't see or hear the train.

Natasha, very still, peered out from her ambush, waiting to see what he would do.

You see, there is nothing up my sleeve and nothing concealed about my person.
"He draws the buggy you see fastened to him, and we ride in the buggy instead of walking," she explained.
Zeb also wanted to see his home, and although he did not find anyone morning for him, the sight of Hugson's Ranch in the picture made him long to get back there.

I loved "Little Women" because it gave me a sense of kinship with girls and boys who could see and hear.
I could see, absolutely see, the dagger and Lady Macbeth's little white hand--the dreadful stain was as real to me as to the grief-stricken queen.

After that Princess Mary did not see her father for a whole week.
You plotted against me, you lied to Prince Andrew about my relations with that Frenchwoman and made me quarrel with him, but you see I need neither her nor you!
Only they could fail to see it, the prince continued, evidently thinking of the campaign of 1807 which seemed to him so recent.
"To see the Governor by his excellency's order," answered Alpatych, lifting his head and proudly thrusting his hand into the bosom of his coat as he always did when he mentioned the prince....
From this you will see that you have a perfect right to reassure the inhabitants of Smolensk, for those defended by two such brave armies may feel assured of victory.
In this question he saw subtle cunning, as men of his type see cunning in everything, so he frowned and did not answer immediately.
The fact that he did not, as she had feared, order her to be carried away by force but only told her not to let him see her cheered Princess Mary.
All she could see was that his former stern and determined expression had altered to one of timidity and submission.
When she changed her position so that his left eye could see her face he calmed down, not taking his eyes off her for some seconds.
On the contrary, I ask you to go with all your belongings to our estate near Moscow, and I promise you I will see to it that there you shall want for nothing.

I just didn't see any point in spending money on new clothes when my old ones still had a lot of wear in them.
Señor Medena was watching Alex, but from the corner of her eye Carmen could see Alex was looking out the window.
They rounded the corner of the building to see a group of men lounging against the fence, watching a display that made Carmen's blood run cold.
"Let's see," she said under her breath.
As he rode into the yard, his expression made it clear that he didn't come to see the house.
Señor Medena would take care of him and see that he got to the hospital if he needed to go.
The line was silent for so long that she checked her phone to see if the call had been dropped.
Señor Medena would take care of him and see that he got to the hospital if he needed to go.
She wanted to see him happy.
I can see it in his eyes.
"Of course; can't you see?" and again the kitten wandered into the air and back to the edge of the roof.
Dorothy and Zeb now got out of the buggy and walked beside the Prince, so that they might see and examine the flowers and plants better.
"Let's see the pigs," said Eureka, eagerly.
There is no reason, that I can see, why they may not exist in the waters of this strange country.
Let us see your arts, and the sorceries you are able to perform.
"If the Wizard was here," said one of the piglets, sobbing bitterly, "he would not see us suffer so."
"I'll explore it and see," replied the boy.
But I didn't see them go; did you?
Can't you see us?
"We can see you," said another of the piglets.
He picked it up, but could not see what he held.
"So I see, my dear," answered another voice, soft and womanly.
Are you surprised that you are unable to see the people of Voe?
Many large and fierce bears roam in the Valley of Voe, and when they can catch any of us they eat us up; but as they cannot see us, we seldom get caught.
Neither can we see the cruel bears, for they also eat the fruit.
But the fishes that swim in our brooks we can see, and often we catch them to eat.
"Yes, dear," her mistress replied; "there are people living in this house, although we cannot see them.
Looking through this opening they could see the Valley of Voe lying far below them, the cottages seeming like toy houses from that distance.
It did her good to see how the braided man's eyes sparkled when he received this treasure.
On peering out all they could see was rolling banks of clouds, so thick that they obscured all else.

Let us examine our prison and see what it is like.
"Yes; it's a good way off, but I can see it," she replied.
I'll get my spy-glass, and then you can see it more plainly.

It will look at all other people who like the same restaurants and see where they repeatedly go for Italian food in San Francisco.
Read on to see how that momentum has built over time, and continues to build.
Then we see that only people in certain parts of the country are getting better.
The computers would then see that most people who got better bought their radishes in stores stocked from certain farms.

If you could see a way it might be possible, then it must be possible.
My purpose in this chapter will not be to persuade the reader of any political doctrine of trade; please apply your own political and social values as you see fit.
Depending on function, robots can come in all shapes and sizes, and I see no compelling reason to make them like humans.
But in terms of wanting to converse with robots at an emotional level, I just don't see it.
We need no far-out scenarios to see how this will change the world.
Robots can manipulate matter smaller than we can even see, and robots can effortlessly manipulate objects that weigh many tons.
If the labor to build the Mercedes becomes completely robotic and computerized, then why won't we see that same increase in efficiency?
I think we will see commodity prices plummet in the coming years.
Yes, I see the cost of food falling a thousandfold.
An exception worth noting is that the poor who get better products at cheaper prices will see their wealth rise accordingly.
Given that inequalities in income are likely to grow, how I can I contend that we will see an end of poverty?
Finally, when the poor see their income shrink while the income of the rich rises, they will buy into the system less.
They see themselves as defining law, not breaking it.
We will know it is coming when we see more and more jobs once filled by humans being filled by machines.
We will know it is coming when we see the prices of more products fall while their quality increases.

The system will see that just the right amounts of black-eyed peas, potatoes, and corn are grown.
I foresee a day when, on a Sunday afternoon, a family might drive (or actually be driven by their car) out to a farm to see where food comes from.
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.
But again, this could happen in nature, so it is hard to see how we can object to this.
There they can see the world commodity prices for their produce in real time.
I believe we will see the day when food is like that.
We know all this is true because we see signs of it already.

Plus it promotes empathy, the ability to see the other guy's viewpoint.
We have seen it most recently and most profoundly in the Arab Spring, where the motto we see again and again is Ash-sha'b yurid isqat an-nizam, or "The people want to bring down the regime."
Because young people generally understand and utilize technology better than older people, we will see a shift in power and influence toward the young.
We see this process democratized and popularized in the world today.
Instead of reading words on a page and trying to imagine a concept, we can see it, as the old expression goes, in Technicolor.

He went to the door but didn't see anyone so went outside to look for them.
Augustine said this could not be the case because he could neither hear Ambrose nor see his lips moving.
I see us today in a situation like those historical ones.
So let's review my key points to see if they are compelling.
In spite of the massive benefits civilization offers to every person in every station of life, a crazy few will always see it very differently.
As I see it, the grandchildren of those who would strap bombs on themselves today will not be rushing to imitate their elders.
But a world without want and without disease, a world with opportunity for all, is a world where getting along—even when we don't see eye to eye—is going to be a good bit easier.
But we will see it begin to take shape and will know that we were there the moment the world changed.

A lady seemed surprised that I loved flowers when I could not see their beautiful colors, and when I assured her I did love them, she said, "no doubt you feel the colors with your fingers."
This was the surprise--I was to have the pleasure of taking my dear teacher to see Niagara Falls!...
We went down a hundred and twenty feet in an elevator that we might see the violent eddies and whirlpools in the deep gorge below the Falls.
You see, none of my friends describe things to me so vividly and so beautifully as he does....
Last Saturday our kind teachers planned a delightful trip to Bedloe's Island to see Bartholdi's great statue of Liberty enlightening the world....
...You know our kind teachers take us to see everything which they think will interest us, and we learn a great deal in that delightful way.

Moreover, Miss Sullivan does not see why Miss Keller should be subjected to the investigation of the scientist, and has not herself made many experiments.
She does not see with her eyes, but through the inner faculty to serve which eyes were given to us.
Miss Keller does not as a rule read very fast, but she reads deliberately, not so much because she feels the words less quickly than we see then, as because it is one of her habits of mind to do things thoroughly and well.
After thinking a little while, she added, 'I think Shakespeare made it very terrible so that people would see how fearful it is to do wrong.'

It did not open easily, and she felt carefully to see if there was a keyhole.
Somehow I had expected to see a pale, delicate child--I suppose I got the idea from Dr. Howe's description of Laura Bridgman when she came to the Institution.
You see at a glance that she is blind.
The two letters "c-a," you see, had reminded her of Fridays "lesson"--not that she had any idea that cake was the name of the thing, but it was simply a matter of association, I suppose.
She kept this up for half an hour, then she got up to see what I was doing.

Then she went all round the table to see who was there, and finding no one but me, she seemed bewildered.
I had an idea that I could win the love and confidence of my little pupil by the same means that I should use if she could see and hear.
After a long time Mrs. Keller said that she would think the matter over and see what Captain Keller thought of sending Helen away with me.
There is a piazza in front, covered with vines that grow so luxuriantly that you have to part them to see the garden beyond.
It is amusing and pathetic to see Helen with her dolls.
He says the gentleman was not particularly interested, but said he would see if anything could be done.
One day this week Captain Keller brought Belle, a setter of which he is very proud, to see us.
I realize that it hurts to see their afflicted little child punished and made to do things against her will.
I think she wanted to see what would happen.
Helen didn't come up to my room after supper, and I didn't see her again until breakfast-time.
This morning she planted her doll and showed me that she expected her to grow as tall as I. You must see that she is very bright, but you have no idea how cunning she is.
Often, when the weather is fine, we drive from four to six, or go to see her aunt at Ivy Green or her cousins in the town.
I see an improvement in Helen day to day, almost from hour to hour.
Nothing would do but I must go somewhere with her to see something.
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."
You see, my mind is undisciplined, full of skips and jumps, and here and there a lot of things huddled together in dark corners.
WE MAKE A SORT OF GAME OF IT and try to see who can find the words most quickly, Helen with her fingers, or I with my eyes, and she learns as many new words as I can explain with the help of those she knows.
It would astonish you to see how many words she learns in an hour in this pleasant manner.
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.
Please give my kind regards to Mr. Anagnos and let him see my letter, if you think best.
If, indeed, they apply to me even remotely, I do not see that I deserve any laudation on that account.
No one can see her without being impressed.
You would be amused to see me hold a squealing pig in my arms, while Helen feels it all over, and asks countless questions--questions not easy to answer either.
You see, I'm only one inch ahead!
If she could see and hear, I suppose she would get rid of her superfluous energy in ways which would not, perhaps, tax her brain so much, although I suspect that the ordinary child takes his play pretty seriously.
One can easily see her meaning.
I heard Helen screaming, and ran down to see what was the matter.
Helen's pencil-writing is excellent, as you will see from the enclosed letter, which she wrote for her own amusement.
In conclusion she asked her mother if she should like to see "very high mountain and beautiful cloudcaps."
You see, I had to use words and images with which she was familiar through the sense of touch.
But it hardly seems possible that any mere words should convey to one who has never seen a mountain the faintest idea of its grandeur; and I don't see how any one is ever to know what impression she did receive, or the cause of her pleasure in what was told her about it.
He invited her to come to see him at Hot Springs.
It was amusing to see her hold it before her eyes and spell the sentences out on her fingers, just as I had done.
It seems as if a child who could see and hear until her nineteenth month must retain some of her first impressions, though ever so faintly.
She likes to have me tell her what I see in pictures.
You see, she had an idea that the colour of our thoughts matched that of our skin.
Ask him to let you see it.
You will see from her letter that she uses many pronouns correctly.
I told her that I could see things with my eyes, and that she could see them with her fingers.
One of the leopards licked her hands, and the man in charge of the giraffes lifted her up in his arms so that she could feel their ears and see how tall they were.
It was very sweet to see the children's eager interest in Helen, and their readiness to give her pleasure.
I SEE NO SENSE IN "FAKING" CONVERSATION FOR THE SAKE OF TEACHING LANGUAGE.
When I see that she is eager to tell me something, but is hampered because she does not know the words, I supply them and the necessary idioms, and we get along finely.
It was touching and beautiful to see Helen enjoy her first Christmas.
Of course, she hung her stocking--two of them lest Santa Claus should forget one, and she lay awake for a long time and got up two or three times to see if anything had happened.
I can't believe that the colour-impressions she received during the year and a half she could see and hear are entirely lost.
I will come to see you when the sun shines.
I am going to Memphis to see them soon, and they will hug and kiss me.
The children were so pleased to see her at Sunday-school, they paid no attention to their teachers, but rushed out of their seats and surrounded us.
At last it became necessary to kill him, and, when Helen next asked to go and see him, I told her that he was DEAD.
Sitting beside her in the car, I describe what I see from the window--hills and valleys and the rivers; cotton-fields and gardens in which strawberries, peaches, pears, melons, and vegetables are growing; herds of cows and horses feeding in broad meadows, and flocks of sheep on the hillside; the cities with their churches and schools, hotels and warehouses, and the occupations of the busy people.
Mr. Anagnos came to see me Thursday.
Mr. Wilson and Mr. Mitchell came to see us Sunday.
Mr. Anagnos went to Louisville Monday to see little blind children.
I could see the way Ginger looked; all her beauty gone, her beautiful arched neck drooping, all the spirit gone out of her flashing eyes, all the playfulness gone out of her manner.
The cat can see the mouse.
The cat can see the mouse.
I must go now to see my garden.
Did you ever see God?
That is why I cannot see God.
I explained to her that some deaf children were taught to speak, but that they could see their teachers' mouths, and that that was a very great assistance to them.
Occasionally she broke out into a merry laugh, and then she would reach out and touch the mouth of any one who happened to be near her, to see if he were laughing also.
I also discuss the political situation with my dear father, and we decide the most perplexing questions quite as satisfactorily to ourselves as if I could see and hear.
So you see what a blessing speech is to me.
In mentioning a visit to Lexington, Mass., she writes: As we rode along we could see the forest monarchs bend their proud forms to listen to the little children of the woodlands whispering their secrets.
I should like much to see it, and to obtain a few copies if possible.
But, children, you must make King Frost a visit the very first opportunity you have, and see for yourselves this wonderful palace.
I asked Miss Sullivan to go at once to see Mrs. Hopkins and ascertain the facts in the matter.
Surely the writer must become as a little child to see things like that.
It is wonderful to see flowers bloom in the midst of a snow-storm!
Beautiful flower, you have taught me to see a little way into the hidden heart of things.
Naturally I love peace and hate war and all that pertains to war; I see nothing admirable in the ruthless career of Napoleon, save its finish.
There are also rare and beautiful moments when I see and hear in Dreamland.
In Arcadia, when I was there, I did not see any hammering stone.
Well, there I might live, I said; and there I did live, for an hour, a summer and a winter life; saw how I could let the years run off, buffet the winter through, and see the spring come in.
Let the reports of all the learned societies come to us, and we will see if they know anything.
Read your fate, see what is before you, and walk on into futurity.
It was pleasant to see my whole household effects out on the grass, making a little pile like a gypsy's pack, and my three-legged table, from which I did not remove the books and pen and ink, standing amid the pines and hickories.
It was worth the while to see the sun shine on these things, and hear the free wind blow on them; so much more interesting most familiar objects look out of doors than in the house.
I see these men every day go about their business with more or less courage and content, doing more even than they suspect, and perchance better employed than they could have consciously devised.
As I walk along the stony shore of the pond in my shirt-sleeves, though it is cool as well as cloudy and windy, and I see nothing special to attract me, all the elements are unusually congenial to me.
As for lodging, it is true they were but poorly entertained, though what they found an inconvenience was no doubt intended for an honor; but as far as eating was concerned, I do not see how the Indians could have done better.
But fewer came to see me on trivial business.
Many a traveller came out of his way to see me and the inside of my house, and, as an excuse for calling, asked for a glass of water.
Half-witted men from the almshouse and elsewhere came to see me; but I endeavored to make them exercise all the wit they had, and make their confessions to me; in such cases making wit the theme of our conversation; and so was compensated.
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.
As I walked in the woods to see the birds and squirrels, so I walked in the village to see the men and boys; instead of the wind among the pines I heard the carts rattle.
I hardly ever failed, when I rambled through the village, to see a row of such worthies, either sitting on a ladder sunning themselves, with their bodies inclined forward and their eyes glancing along the line this way and that, from time to time, with a voluptuous expression, or else leaning against a barn with their hands in their pockets, like caryatides, as if to prop it up.
Viewed from a hilltop it reflects the color of the sky; but near at hand it is of a yellowish tint next the shore where you can see the sand, then a light green, which gradually deepens to a uniform dark green in the body of the pond.
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.
From a hilltop you can see a fish leap in almost any part; for not a pickerel or shiner picks an insect from this smooth surface but it manifestly disturbs the equilibrium of the whole lake.
I see where the breeze dashes across it by the streaks or flakes of light.
Though I passed over it as gently as possible, the slight undulations produced by my boat extended almost as far as I could see, and gave a ribbed appearance to the reflections.
I see by its face that it is visited by the same reflection; and I can almost say, Walden, is it you?
It was worth the while, if only to feel the wind blow on your cheek freely, and see the waves run, and remember the life of mariners.
But I see that if I were to live in a wilderness I should again be tempted to become a fisher and hunter in earnest.
They are but one appetite, and we only need to see a person do any one of these things to know how great a sensualist he is.
See those clouds; how they hang!
I would advise you to set in the spade down yonder among the ground-nuts, where you see the johnswort waving.
Let me see; where was I?
I will just try these three sentences of Confut-see; they may fetch that state about again.
Or I heard the peep of the young when I could not see the parent bird.
I took up the chip on which the three I have particularly described were struggling, carried it into my house, and placed it under a tumbler on my window-sill, in order to see the issue.
Once I was surprised to see a cat walking along the stony shore of the pond, for they rarely wander so far from home.
If I endeavored to overtake him in a boat, in order to see how he would manoeuvre, he would dive and be completely lost, so that I did not discover him again, sometimes, till the latter part of the day.
How surprised must the fishes be to see this ungainly visitor from another sphere speeding his way amid their schools!
It was surprising to see how serenely he sailed off with unruffled breast when he came to the surface, doing all the work with his webbed feet beneath.
Though the sky was by this time overcast, the pond was so smooth that I could see where he broke the surface when I did not hear him.
I was surprised to see how thirsty the bricks were which drank up all the moisture in my plaster before I had smoothed it, and how many pailfuls of water it takes to christen a new hearth.
These bubbles are from an eightieth to an eighth of an inch in diameter, very clear and beautiful, and you see your face reflected in them through the ice.
One day when I came to the same place forty-eight hours afterward, I found that those large bubbles were still perfect, though an inch more of ice had formed, as I could see distinctly by the seam in the edge of a cake.
You can always see a face in the fire.
How blind that cannot see serenity!
I do not see how he can ever die; Nature cannot spare him.
I often performed this duty of hospitality, waited long enough to milk a whole herd of cows, but did not see the man approaching from the town.
And perhaps at evening I see the hunters returning with a single brush trailing from their sleigh for a trophy, seeking their inn.
Such a man has some right to fish, and I love to see nature carried out in him.
I never chanced to see its kind in any market; it would be the cynosure of all eyes there.
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.
They also showed me in another place what they thought was a "leach-hole," through which the pond leaked out under a hill into a neighboring meadow, pushing me out on a cake of ice to see it.
Perhaps I shall hear a solitary loon laugh as he dives and plumes himself, or shall see a lonely fisher in his boat, like a floating leaf, beholding his form reflected in the waves, where lately a hundred men securely labored.
Fogs and rains and warmer suns are gradually melting the snow; the days have grown sensibly longer; and I see how I shall get through the winter without adding to my wood-pile, for large fires are no longer necessary.
When the warmer days come, they who dwell near the river hear the ice crack at night with a startling whoop as loud as artillery, as if its icy fetters were rent from end to end, and within a few days see it rapidly going out.
It was a warm day, and he was surprised to see so great a body of ice remaining.
You here see perchance how blood-vessels are formed.
With the liability to accident, we must see how little account is to be made of it.
The phÅ“be had already come once more and looked in at my door and window, to see if my house was cavern-like enough for her, sustaining herself on humming wings with clinched talons, as if she held by the air, while she surveyed the premises.
I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace.
God will see that you do not want society.
I see far inland the banks which the stream anciently washed, before science began to record its freshets.
I heartily accept the motto,--"That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
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.
See what gross inconsistency is tolerated.
I see this blood flowing now.
I did not see why the schoolmaster should be taxed to support the priest, and not the priest the schoolmaster: for I was not the State's schoolmaster, but I supported myself by voluntary subscription.
I did not see why the lyceum should not present its tax-bill, and have the State to back its demand, as well as the Church.
Let us see who is the strongest.
I pumped my fellow-prisoner as dry as I could, for fear I should never see him again; but at length he showed me which was my bed, and left me to blow out the lamp.
It was to see my native village in the light of the Middle Ages, and our Concord was turned into a Rhine stream, and visions of knights and castles passed before me.
Soon after he was let out to work at haying in a neighboring field, whither he went every day, and would not be back till noon; so he bade me good-day, saying that he doubted if he should see me again.
Let him see that he does only what belongs to himself and to the hour.
You see... was all Natasha managed to utter (to her everything seemed funny).
Don't you see you are not wanted here?
It was pleasant and touching to see these little girls in love; but apparently the sight of them roused no pleasant feeling in Vera.
You see yours is already an officer in the Guards, while my Nicholas is going as a cadet.
Still, I will take Boris and go to see him at once, and I shall speak to him straight out.
We will see how Taras distinguishes himself today.
I only need see Prince Vasili Sergeevich: he is staying here, is he not?
"Princess Drubetskaya to see Prince Vasili Sergeevich," he called to a footman dressed in knee breeches, shoes, and a swallow-tail coat, who ran downstairs and looked over from the halfway landing.
I absolutely must see him, however painful it may be for me.
Can I see him? asked Pierre, awkwardly as usual, but unabashed.
Can I see the count?
Olga, go and see whether Uncle's beef tea is ready--it is almost time, she added, giving Pierre to understand that they were busy, and busy making his father comfortable, while evidently he, Pierre, was only busy causing him annoyance.
You will let me know when I can see him.
The count is very, very ill, and you must not see him at all.
I have come with my mother to see the count, but it seems he is not well.
The count came waddling in to see his wife with a rather guilty look as usual.
You see, my dear...
Well, you see, Count, I want some money.
Just see how these nestlings are growing up, and she pointed to the girls.
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.
Now I see it all!
Last winter she wheedled herself in here and told the count such vile, disgraceful things about us, especially about Sophie--I can't repeat them--that it made the count quite ill and he would not see us for a whole fortnight.
She felt that as she brought with her the person the dying man wished to see, her own admission was assured.
He has asked to see you.
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.
Once more Pierre looked questioningly at Anna Mikhaylovna to see what he was to do next.
She led him into the dark drawing room and Pierre was glad no one could see his face.
It uplifts the soul to see such men as the old count and his worthy son, said she.
Though in the new reign he was free to return to the capitals, he still continued to live in the country, remarking that anyone who wanted to see him could come the hundred miles from Moscow to Bald Hills, while he himself needed no one and nothing.
Ah, Andrew, I did not see you.
"Nonsense, nonsense!" cried the old man, shaking his pigtail to see whether it was firmly plaited, and grasping his by the hand.
"I'm glad, glad, to see you," he said, looking attentively into her eyes, and then quickly went to his place and sat down.
May God help you, but we'll see what will happen.
I don't understand how a man of his immense intellect can fail to see what is as clear as day, and can go so far astray.
But even in this I can see lately a shade of improvement.
It was an autumn night, so dark that the coachman could not see the carriage pole.
He seized his son by the hand with small bony fingers, shook it, looked straight into his son's face with keen eyes which seemed to see through him, and again laughed his frigid laugh.
The Austrians, you see, are putting them down.
See, the fifth company is turning into the village already... they will have their buckwheat cooked before we reach our quarters.
Involuntarily he felt a joyful agitation at the thought of the humiliation of arrogant Austria and that in a week's time he might, perhaps, see and take part in the first Russian encounter with the French since Suvorov met them.
He waited a moment to see whether the cornet would answer, but he turned and went out of the corridor.
"You see, my fwiend," he said, "we sleep when we don't love.
We don't see it like that.
Now then, let's see how far it will carry, Captain.
Don't you see the general wants to pass?
Just see, the German sausage is making tracks, too!
See how smart she's made herself!
See, here's an officer jammed in too-- different voices were saying in the crowd, as the men looked at one another, and all pressed toward the exit from the bridge.
"Just see where it carries to!" a soldier near by said sternly, looking round at the sound.
The soldiers without turning their heads glanced at one another, curious to see their comrades' impression.
You'll see--we shall retire.
Don't you see the skirmishers are retreating?
"Let him see whether I am a coward!" he thought.
Another instant and I shall never again see the sun, this water, that gorge!...
See if I don't get promoted to a sublieutenancy.
His Majesty will no doubt wish to see you, but not today.
His Majesty will probably desire to see you, he added, bowing his head.
You see that your victory is not a matter for great rejoicing and that you can't be received as a savior.
"If we live we shall see," replied Bilibin, his face again becoming smooth as a sign that the conversation was at an end.
Kuragin is exquisite when he discusses politics--you should see his gravity!
"We must let him see Amelie, she's exquisite!" said one of "ours," kissing his finger tips.
The Empress' chamberlain invited him to see Her Majesty.
The archduchess also wished to see him.
And you didn't see that everybody is packing up?
He lets them enter the tÃªte-de-pont. * They spin him a thousand gasconades, saying that the war is over, that the Emperor Francis is arranging a meeting with Bonaparte, that they desire to see Prince Auersperg, and so on.
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.
Don't you see it's a woman? said Prince Andrew riding up to the officer.
Prince Andrew, without replying, asked the prince's permission to ride round the position to see the disposition of the forces, so as to know his bearings should he be sent to execute an order.
You can see everything from there; let's go there, Prince.
Our front line and that of the enemy were far apart on the right and left flanks, but in the center where the men with a flag of truce had passed that morning, the lines were so near together that the men could see one another's faces and speak to one another.
To the left from that village, amid the smoke, was something resembling a battery, but it was impossible to see it clearly with the naked eye.
"He wants to see a battle," said Zherkov to Bolkonski, pointing to the accountant, "but he feels a pain in the pit of his stomach already."
As he approached, a ringing shot issued from it deafening him and his suite, and in the smoke that suddenly surrounded the gun they could see the gunners who had seized it straining to roll it quickly back to its former position.
The nearer they got to the hollow the less they could see but the more they felt the nearness of the actual battlefield.
"There, you see!" and he drew attention to the bullets whistling, singing, and hissing continually around them.
One could already see the soldiers' shaggy caps, distinguish the officers from the men, and see the standard flapping against its staff.
Vill you be so goot to come to ze front and see dat zis position iss no goot?
Before him, on the right, Rostov saw the front lines of his hussars and still farther ahead a dark line which he could not see distinctly but took to be the enemy.
Just see the smoke!
You couldn't see a thing.
But you will see everything for yourself when you get to Petersburg.
Even if Anna Pavlovna did not say so, he could see that she wished to and only refrained out of regard for his modesty.
The aunt coughed, swallowed, and said in French that she was very pleased to see Helene, then she turned to Pierre with the same words of welcome and the same look.
Princess Helene asked to see the portrait of the aunt's husband on the box lid.
He did not see her marble beauty forming a complete whole with her dress, but all the charm of her body only covered by her garments.
"Well, I will leave you in your little corner," came Anna Pavlovna's voice, "I see you are all right there."
He did not see, hear, or understand anything clearly.
Some, as if unwilling to distract her from an important occupation, came up to her for a moment and made haste to go away, refusing to let her see them off.
"Aline," he said to his wife, "go and see what they are about."
After dinner, he went to see his daughter-in-law.
Katie," she said to the maid, "bring the princess her gray dress, and you'll see, Mademoiselle Bourienne, how I shall arrange it," she added, smiling with a foretaste of artistic pleasure.
And she saw Mademoiselle Bourienne, with her ribbon and pretty face, and her unusually animated look which was fixed on him, but him she could not see, she only saw something large, brilliant, and handsome moving toward her as she entered the room.
She still could not see him.
That is what we shall see! he added aloud.
Glad to see you!
You know, you see right through people.
And don't I see that that idiot had eyes only for Bourienne--I shall have to get rid of her.
That day Nicholas Rostov received a letter from Boris, telling him that the Ismaylov regiment was quartered for the night ten miles from Olmutz and that he wanted to see him as he had a letter and money for him.
"As you see," he said.
"You are still the same dreamer, I see," remarked Boris, shaking his head.
The day after the review, Boris, in his best uniform and with his comrade Berg's best wishes for success, rode to Olmutz to see Bolkonski, wishing to profit by his friendliness and obtain for himself the best post he could--preferably that of adjutant to some important personage, a position in the army which seemed to him most attractive.
We shall see whether he cannot attach you to himself or find a place for you somewhere nearer the sun.
But you see... another time!
Next day, the army began its campaign, and up to the very battle of Austerlitz, Boris was unable to see either Prince Andrew or Dolgorukov again and remained for a while with the Ismaylov regiment.
The next day the Emperor stopped at Wischau, and Villier, his physician, was repeatedly summoned to see him.
At six in the evening, Kutuzov went to the Emperor's headquarters and after staying but a short time with the Tsar went to see the grand marshal of the court, Count Tolstoy.
"Ma foi!" said he, "tomorrow we shall see all that on the battlefield."
Shall I go with some of my hussars to see? replied Rostov.
Bagration stopped and, before replying, tried to see Rostov's face in the mist.
"Well, go and see," he said, after a pause.
The column moved forward without knowing where and unable, from the masses around them, the smoke and the increasing fog, to see either the place they were leaving or that to which they were going.
The fog had grown so dense that though it was growing light they could not see ten paces ahead.
Go, my dear fellow, and see whether the third division has passed the village.
Yes, see it is!... for certain....
But Prince Andrew did not see how it ended.
How was it I did not see that lofty sky before?
He could see puffs of musketry smoke that seemed to chase one another down the hillsides, and clouds of cannon smoke rolling, spreading, and mingling with one another.
I shall see it close, he thought.
Rostov could already see their faces and heard the command: "Charge!" shouted by an officer who was urging his thoroughbred to full speed.
He could see nothing more, for immediately afterwards cannon began firing from somewhere and smoke enveloped everything.
And here, where at any moment the Emperor may see them....
I saw him just as I see you....
He did not turn his head and did not see those who, judging by the sound of hoofs and voices, had ridden up and stopped near him.
The first words he heard on coming to his senses were those of a French convoy officer, who said rapidly: "We must halt here: the Emperor will pass here immediately; it will please him to see these gentlemen prisoners."
Prince Andrew did not see how and by whom it was replaced, but the little icon with its thin gold chain suddenly appeared upon his chest outside his uniform.
It was Natasha, Sonya, and Petya, who had come to see whether they were getting up.
See! she said, but could not maintain herself on her toes any longer.
I have to see him in any case.
He seemed to see and hear nothing of what was going on around him and to be absorbed by some depressing and unsolved problem.
Well, you see, I'll tell you the whole secret of dueling in two words.
'Everyone fears a bear,' he says, 'but when you see one your fear's all gone, and your only thought is not to let him get away!'
The combatants advanced along the trodden tracks, nearer and nearer to one another, beginning to see one another through the mist.
It was evident that her eyes did not see Princess Mary but were looking within... into herself... at something joyful and mysterious taking place within her.
Why, if he was so jealous, as I see things he should have shown it sooner, but he lets it go on for months.
There now, I like your Denisov though he is a rake and all that, still I like him; so you see I do understand.
For two days after that Rostov did not see Dolokhov at his own or at Dolokhov's home: on the third day he received a note from him:
I only want to see whether you will let me win this ten, or beat it.
To say "tomorrow" and keep up a dignified tone was not difficult, but to go home alone, see his sisters, brother, mother, and father, confess and ask for money he had no right to after giving his word of honor, was terrible.
This chamber with what you see therein should already have suggested to your heart, if it is sincere, more than words could do.
You will perhaps also see in your further initiation a like method of enlightenment.
The candles were then extinguished and some spirit lighted, as Pierre knew by the smell, and he was told that he would now see the lesser light.
Then the candles were relit and he was told that he would see the full light; the bandage was again removed and more than ten voices said together: "Sic transit gloria mundi."
"Go!" he repeated, amazed at himself and glad to see the look of confusion and fear that showed itself on Prince Vasili's face.
"You absolutely must come and see me," she said in a tone that implied that, for certain considerations he could not know of, this was absolutely necessary.
It seemed as if from some words Boris had spoken that evening about the Prussian army, Helene had suddenly found it necessary to see him.
Buxhowden is commander-in-chief by seniority, but General Bennigsen does not quite see it; more particularly as it is he and his corps who are within sight of the enemy and he wishes to profit by the opportunity to fight a battle 'on his own hand' as the Germans say.
Well, you see, I'm building.
"When you see my sister, Princess Mary, you'll get on with her," he said.
But as I see it, physical labor is as essential to him, as much a condition of his existence, as mental activity is to you or me.
Why do I alone not see what you see?
You see a reign of goodness and truth on earth, but I don't see it.
You say you can't see a reign of goodness and truth on earth.
If I see, clearly see, that ladder leading from plant to man, why should I suppose it breaks off at me and does not go farther and farther?
"Let us go and see my sister," he said to Pierre when he returned.
It will serve her right, she will be confused, but you will see her 'God's folk.'
Come, and you'll see for yourself.
* Delighted to see you.
I am very glad to see you.
"Did you see it yourselves?" he inquired.
"I have known you a long time, you see, and am as fond of you as of a brother," she said.
Rostov moved to the window to see whom he was speaking to, and saw the quartermaster, Topcheenko.
Rostov explained that he wanted to see Major Denisov of the hussars, who was wounded.
"But if you'll step into the officers' wards you'll see for yourself," he added, turning to Rostov.
"What is there to see?" said the assistant.
"See where we've met again!" said the little man.
What struck him was that Denisov did not seem glad to see him, and smiled at him unnaturally.
"I should like to see the great man," he said, alluding to Napoleon, whom hitherto he, like everyone else, had always called Buonaparte.
Very glad, very glad to see you, he said, however, coming toward him with a smile.
"I see I'm intruding," Rostov repeated.
"I may see him at any moment," thought Rostov.
Crowds of officers and civilians drew near merely to see him.
Boris, too, with his friend Zhilinski, came to see the Preobrazhensk banquet.
So vividly did he recall that hospital stench of dead flesh that he looked round to see where the smell came from.
Prince Andrew had to see the Marshal of the Nobility for the district in connection with the affairs of the Ryazan estate of which he was trustee.
He was glad to see Prince Andrew, as he was to see any new visitor, and insisted on his staying the night.
Do just come and see what a moon!...
The field marshal made an appointment to see him, received him graciously, and promised to inform the Emperor.
A few days later Prince Andrew received notice that he was to go to see the Minister of War, Count Arakcheev.
The Petersburg Freemasons all came to see him, tried to ingratiate themselves with him, and it seemed to them all that he was preparing something for them and concealing it.
It was just then that he received a letter from his wife, who implored him to see her, telling him how grieved she was about him and how she wished to devote her whole life to him.
Without replying either to his wife or his mother-in-law, Pierre late one night prepared for a journey and started for Moscow to see Joseph Alexeevich.
I knew that if I once let myself see her I should not have strength to go on refusing what she wanted.
She need not know how hard it was for me to see her again.
He entered his wife's drawing room as one enters a theater, was acquainted with everybody, equally pleased to see everyone, and equally indifferent to them all.
"You see," said Berg to his comrade, whom he called "friend" only because he knew that everyone has friends, "you see, I have considered it all, and should not marry if I had not thought it all out or if it were in any way unsuitable.
You have quite turned his head, I can see that....
Don't you see the plumes?... was whispered among the crowd.
* "Delighted to see you."
See how the men, young and old, pay court to her.
But see, those two, though not good-looking, are even more run after.
"There's someone else we know--Bolkonski, do you see, Mamma?" said Natasha, pointing out Prince Andrew.
They do not even seem to see me, or if they do they look as if they were saying, 'Ah, she's not the one I'm after, so it's not worth looking at her!'
He invited Prince Andrew to come and see them, and asked his daughter whether she was enjoying herself.
"Very pleased to see you, Prince," he said.
He decided that he must attend to his son's education by finding a tutor and putting the boy in his charge, then he ought to retire from the service and go abroad, and see England, Switzerland and Italy.
One morning Colonel Berg, whom Pierre knew as he knew everybody in Moscow and Petersburg, came to see him.
See how I managed from my first promotion.
And I, you see, am hard at it.
Pierre did not come either and Natasha, not knowing that Prince Andrew had gone to see his father, could not explain his absence to herself.
Natasha was looking at the mirror, but did not see herself.
Five years have passed since then, and already I, with my petty understanding, begin to see clearly why she had to die, and in what way that death was but an expression of the infinite goodness of the Creator, whose every action, though generally incomprehensible to us, is but a manifestation of His infinite love for His creatures.
In spite of my wish to see you, I do not think so and do not want to do so.
"You see he writes," said she, showing her son a letter of Prince Andrew's, with that latent grudge a mother always has in regard to a daughter's future married happiness, "he writes that he won't come before December.
Never let me see your face here again, you villain!
Though Daniel was not a big man, to see him in a room was like seeing a horse or a bear on the floor among the furniture and surroundings of human life.
Nicholas did not hear his own cry nor feel that he was galloping, nor see the borzois, nor the ground over which he went: he saw only the wolf, who, increasing her speed, bounded on in the same direction along the hollow.
Nicholas could already see not far in front of him the wood where the wolf would certainly escape should she reach it.
Nicholas standing in a fallow field could see all his whips.
Nicholas dismounted, and with Natasha and Petya, who had ridden up, stopped near the hounds, waiting to see how the matter would end.
You see it's damp weather, and you could rest, and the little countess could be driven home in a trap.
See, she's got a little hunting horn!
Anisya, go and see if the strings of my guitar are all right.
They could not see the horses, but only heard them splashing through the unseen mud.
Well, you see, first I thought that Rugay, the red hound, was like Uncle, and that if he were a man he would always keep Uncle near him, if not for his riding, then for his manner.
There was still the hunting establishment which Nicholas had enlarged.
From her feminine point of view she could see only one solution, namely, for Nicholas to marry a rich heiress.
Several times the countess, with tears in her eyes, told her son that now both her daughters were settled, her only wish was to see him married.
She could not see people unconcernedly, but had to send them on some errand.
And tapping with her heels, she ran quickly upstairs to see Vogel and his wife who lived on the upper story.
But you see, you remember!
It was so light that he could see the moonlight reflected from the metal harness disks and from the eyes of the horses, who looked round in alarm at the noisy party under the shadow of the porch roof.
Nicholas glanced round at Sonya, and bent down to see her face closer.
See whom she looks like!
"Then it's all right?" said Nicholas, again scrutinizing the expression of his sister's face to see if she was in earnest.
"Sit down, Natasha; perhaps you'll see him," said Sonya.
"I see someone with a mustache," said Natasha, seeing her own face.
She sat a long time looking at the receding line of candles reflected in the glasses and expecting (from tales she had heard) to see a coffin, or him, Prince Andrew, in that last dim, indistinctly outlined square.
"Why is it others see things and I don't?" she said.
"Now, Miss Sonya is sure to see something," whispered Dunyasha; "while you do nothing but laugh."
When shall I see him!
Self- sacrifice was her most cherished idea but in this case she could not see what she ought to sacrifice, or for whom.
Only not to see it, that dreadful it!
Metivier came to see the prince about twice a week.
Metivier, who came in the morning with his felicitations, considered it proper in his quality of doctor de forcer la consigne, * as he told Princess Mary, and went in to see the prince.
Tell her so if you see her before I do.
"I can always arrange so as not to see her often," thought Boris.
You see I have known him a long time and am also fond of Mary, your future sister-in-law.
Tomorrow you'll go with your father to see her.
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.
God is my witness, I did not know you had honored us with a visit, and I came in such a costume only to see my daughter.
And his eyes--how I see those eyes! thought Natasha.
One can see at once that they're engaged....
She even turned so that he should see her profile in what she thought was its most becoming aspect.
Nobody will know and I shall never see him again, she told herself.
The day after the opera the Rostovs went nowhere and nobody came to see them.
Count Rostov was displeased to see that the company consisted almost entirely of men and women known for the freedom of their conduct.
Yesterday, as you know, I went to see Prince Bolkonski.
And I am sorry I went to see him and took her, said the old count.
Princess Mary went on to ask Natasha to fix a time when she could see her again.
You see how I am suffering!
You'll see what a man he is!
Marya Dmitrievna went on admonishing her for some time, enjoining on her that it must all be kept from her father and assuring her that nobody would know anything about it if only Natasha herself would undertake to forget it all and not let anyone see that something had happened.
When the count came to see her she turned anxiously round at the sound of a man's footstep, and then her face resumed its cold and malevolent expression.
He went to Tver to see Joseph Alexeevich's widow, who had long since promised to hand over to him some papers of her deceased husband's.
When he returned to Moscow Pierre was handed a letter from Marya Dmitrievna asking him to come and see her on a matter of great importance relating to Andrew Bolkonski and his betrothed.
Natasha is not quite well; she's in her room and would like to see you.
Pierre felt it strange to see this calm, indifferent crowd of people unaware of what was going on in his soul.
It seemed to him essential to see Natasha.
Pierre saw the distracted count, and Sonya, who had a tear-stained face, but he could not see Natasha.
Prince Andrew had arrived in the evening and Pierre came to see him next morning.
Give this to the countess... if you see her.
Prince Andrew, as if trying to remember whether he had something more to say, or waiting to see if Pierre would say anything, looked fixedly at him.
Did you see the Emperor?
The Cossacks-- those rascals--see how they run!
There he is, do you see him?
I've seen him twice, as I see you now.
"Vivat!" shouted the Poles, ecstatically, breaking their ranks and pressing against one another to see him.
In the contrary case, Your Majesty, I shall see myself forced to repel an attack that nothing on my part has provoked.
"If there is a point we don't see it, or it is not at all witty," their expressions seemed to say.
That day he did not see his father, who did not leave his room and admitted no one but Mademoiselle Bourienne and Tikhon, but asked several times whether his son had gone.
One could see that he wished to pass through the rooms as quickly as possible, finish with the bows and greetings, and sit down to business in front of a map, where he would feel at home.
I am very glad to see you!
He could already see how these men, who looked so small at the foot of the hill, jostled and overtook one another, waving their arms and their sabers in the air.
Rostov reined in his horse, and his eyes sought his foe to see whom he had vanquished.
Doctors came to see her singly and in consultation, talked much in French, German, and Latin, blamed one another, and prescribed a great variety of medicines for all the diseases known to them, but the simple idea never occurred to any of them that they could not know the disease Natasha was suffering from, as no disease suffered by a live man can be known, for every living person has his own peculiarities and always has his own peculiar, personal, novel, complicated disease, unknown to medicine--not a disease of the lungs, liver, skin, heart, nerves, and so on mentioned in medical books, but a disease consisting of one of the innumerable combinations of the maladies of those organs.
Even to Natasha herself it was pleasant to see that so many sacrifices were being made for her sake, and to know that she had to take medicine at certain hours, though she declared that no medicine would cure her and that it was all nonsense.
But when he had gone into another room, to which the countess hurriedly followed him, he assumed a grave air and thoughtfully shaking his head said that though there was danger, he had hopes of the effect of this last medicine and one must wait and see, that the malady was chiefly mental, but...
She hardly ever left the house and of those who came to see them was glad to see only one person, Pierre.
The doctor who came to see her that day ordered her to continue the powders he had prescribed a fortnight previously.
Don't you see we're all standing still?
Petya stood on tiptoe and pushed and pinched, but could see nothing except the people about him.
If he could only see the Emperor he would be happy!
The people are still hoping to see Your Majesty again.
The same evening that the prince gave his instructions to Alpatych, Dessalles, having asked to see Princess Mary, told her that, as the prince was not very well and was taking no steps to secure his safety, though from Prince Andrew's letter it was evident that to remain at Bald Hills might be dangerous, he respectfully advised her to send a letter by Alpatych to the Provincial Governor at Smolensk, asking him to let her know the state of affairs and the extent of the danger to which Bald Hills was exposed.
She returned to the garden and sat down on the grass at the foot of the slope by the pond, where no one could see her.
"I can see through you and three yards into the ground under you," he continued, gazing at the floor in front of Dron.
But she remembered too how he had changed of late toward Mademoiselle Bourienne and could not bear to see her, thereby showing how unjust were the reproaches Princess Mary had mentally addressed to her.
He wanted to see me, and I was standing close by, outside the door.
With wide-open eyes she gazed at the moonlight and the shadows, expecting every moment to see his dead face, and she felt that the silence brooding over the house and within it held her fast.
After the hussars had come to the village and Rostov had gone to see the princess, a certain confusion and dissension had arisen among the crowd.
I should like very much to see her, said Pierre.
Of his intimate friends only the Rostovs remained, but he did not go to see them.
To distract his thoughts he drove that day to the village of Vorontsovo to see the great balloon Leppich was constructing to destroy the foe, and a trial balloon that was to go up next day.
Napoleon, riding to Valuevo on the twenty-fourth, did not see (as the history books say he did) the position of the Russians from Utitsa to Borodino (he could not have seen that position because it did not exist), nor did he see an advanced post of the Russian army, but while pursuing the Russian rearguard he came upon the left flank of the Russian position--at the Shevardino Redoubt--and unexpectedly for the Russians moved his army across the Kolocha.
Can one see from there?...
There they are, there... you can see them.
One can see them with the naked eye...
You see down there where the rows of hay are lying in the hollow, there's the bridge.
Well, you see, that's difficult to explain....
Yesterday our left flank was there at Shevardino, you see, where the oak is, but now we have withdrawn our left wing--now it is over there, do you see that village and the smoke?
He explained his wish to be present at the battle and to see the position.
You will see everything best from where Count Bennigsen will be.
But I should like to see the right flank.
You see... but Boris did not finish, for at that moment Kaysarov, Kutuzov's adjutant, came up to Pierre.
Through a gap in the broken wall he could see, beside the wooden fence, a row of thirty year-old birches with their lower branches lopped off, a field on which shocks of oats were standing, and some bushes near which rose the smoke of campfires-- the soldiers' kitchens.
I wish to see the battle.
I went to see them, but missed them.
You see, we were going away, so he would get it all; wasn't it so, your excellency? and again Timokhin turned to the prince.
Now we see light...
I see that I have begun to understand too much.
"I'll see you later," he added, and summoned de Beausset, who by that time had prepared the surprise, having placed something on the chairs and covered it with a cloth.
You are fond of travel, and in three days you will see Moscow.
You surely did not expect to see that Asiatic capital.
It is too soon for him to see a field of battle.
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.
You'll see everything from there and it's less dangerous, and I'll come for you.
Several soldiers gathered by the wall of the trench, looking out to see what was happening in front.
"Go, my dear fellow," he said to Ermolov, "and see whether something can't be done."
Ah, they don't see it! came identical shouts from the ranks all along the regiment.
I see only a coincidence of occurrences such as happens with all the phenomena of life, and I see that however much and however carefully I observe the hands of the watch, and the valves and wheels of the engine, and the oak, I shall not discover the cause of the bells ringing, the engine moving, or of the winds of spring.
"Well, gentlemen, I see that it is I who will have to pay for the broken crockery," said he, and rising slowly he moved to the table.
Only Marya Dmitrievna Akhrosimova, who had come to Petersburg that summer to see one of her sons, allowed herself plainly to express an opinion contrary to the general one.
Prince Vasili, who of late very often forgot what he had said and repeated one and the same thing a hundred times, remarked to his daughter whenever he chanced to see her:
Just then the lady companion who lived with Helene came in to announce that His Highness was in the ballroom and wished to see her.
He could see the clear starry sky between the dark roofs of two penthouses.
No, I don't want that, I don't want to see and understand that.
The count wants to see you particularly.
Without going home, Pierre took a cab and drove to see the Moscow commander-in-chief.
"But you see what he writes..." said another, pointing to a printed sheet he held in his hand.
There, you see, mon cher!
Pierre dressed hurriedly and, instead of going to see them, went to the back porch and out through the gate.
She began to think she would never live to see such happiness.
I see you were right, but just take out the top one.
(He liked to see new faces.)
Vasilich, you'll see to it.
Here's Berg coming to see us, said she, looking out of the window.
Somebody after all must see to things.
"Mamma, it's impossible: see what is going on in the yard!" she cried.
May I see to it?
Almost at the head of the line she could see the raised hood of Prince Andrew's caleche.
His major-domo came in a second time to say that the Frenchman who had brought the letter from the countess was very anxious to see him if only for a minute, and that someone from Bazdeev's widow had called to ask Pierre to take charge of her husband's books, as she herself was leaving for the country.
"An officer, I have to see him," came the reply in a pleasant, well-bred Russian voice.
"What did you want to see the count for?" she asked.
We too will take part..." the reader went on, and then paused ("Do you see," shouted the youth victoriously, "he's going to clear up the whole affair for you...."), "in destroying them, and will send these visitors to the devil.
The superintendent of police, whom the crowd had stopped, went in to see him at the same time as an adjutant who informed the count that the horses were harnessed.
They were both pale, and the superintendent of police, after reporting that he had executed the instructions he had received, informed the count that an immense crowd had collected in the courtyard and wished to see him.
See this? shouted Makar Alexeevich, brandishing the pistol.
You see, I have bullets enough in my body already.
Here is one I got at Wagram" (he touched his side) "and a second at Smolensk"--he showed a scar on his cheek--"and this leg which as you see does not want to march, I got that on the seventh at the great battle of la Moskowa.
I pity those who did not see it.
"See how it's flaring," said one.
See what it's doing now.
You can even see the crows flying.
You can see it from the window, she said to her cousin, evidently wishing to distract her mind.
And as if in order not to offend Sonya and to get rid of her, she turned her face to the window, looked out in such a way that it was evident that she could not see anything, and again settled down in her former attitude.
But you didn't see it!
And could she see him?
Horribly unlike a man as that body looked, she must see him.
If only it were possible for me to see her once more!
But Prince Andrew did not see that, he saw her shining eyes which were beautiful.
The beautiful Armenian still sat motionless and in the same attitude, with her long lashes drooping as if she did not see or feel what the soldier was doing to her.
I see, Colonel, from all that is happening, that Providence requires great sacrifices of us...
It appears so to us because we see only the general historic interest of that time and do not see all the personal human interests that people had.
We are at home on Thursdays--today is Thursday, so please come and see us quite informally, said the governor, taking leave of him.
"Anna Ignatyevna wants to see you, Nicholas," said she, pronouncing the name so that Nicholas at once understood that Anna Ignatyevna was a very important person.
Pray come and see me.
But see here, to tell the truth, Aunt...
You see, Aunt, Mamma has long wanted me to marry an heiress, but the very idea of marrying for money is repugnant to me.
So you see there can be no question about- said Nicholas incoherently and blushing.
The day after her party the governor's wife came to see Malvintseva and, after discussing her plan with the aunt, remarked that though under present circumstances a formal betrothal was, of course, not to be thought of, all the same the young people might be brought together and could get to know one another.
Assuming that she did go down to see him, Princess Mary imagined the words he would say to her and what she would say to him, and these words sometimes seemed undeservedly cold and then to mean too much.
In men Rostov could not bear to see the expression of a higher spiritual life (that was why he did not like Prince Andrew) and he referred to it contemptuously as philosophy and dreaminess, but in Princess Mary that very sorrow which revealed the depth of a whole spiritual world foreign to him was an irresistible attraction.
Yes, prayer can move mountains, but one must have faith and not pray as Natasha and I used to as children, that the snow might turn into sugar-- and then run out into the yard to see whether it had done so.
Next day Nicholas took his mother's letter and went to see Princess Mary.
His pale face was calm, his eyes closed, and they could see his regular breathing.
He replied that he had gone out to see what was happening in Moscow.
No flames were seen, but columns of smoke rose on all sides, and all Moscow as far as Pierre could see was one vast charred ruin.
Here and there he could see churches that had not been burned.
This man was doing something to his legs in the darkness, and though Pierre could not see his face he felt that the man continually glanced at him.
How can one see all this and not feel sad?
But he, my younger brother, had five little ones, while I, you see, only left a wife behind.
I come home on leave and I'll tell you how it was, I look and see that they are living better than before.
Can I see him--can I? asked the princess.
In spite of her one desire to see her brother as soon as possible, and her vexation that at the moment when all she wanted was to see him they should be trying to entertain her and pretending to admire her nephew, the princess noticed all that was going on around her and felt the necessity of submitting, for a time, to this new order of things which she had entered.
"You, you... will see," was all Natasha could say.
I don't know why, but you will see what he is like.
Princess Mary suddenly said in a trembling voice, would you like to see little Nicholas?
Yes, I shall be very glad to see him.
With a great effort he tried to return to life and to see things from their point of view.
The needles clicked lightly in her slender, rapidly moving hands, and he could clearly see the thoughtful profile of her drooping face.
From General Wintzingerode's reports, I see that an enemy corps of ten thousand men is moving on the Petersburg road.
You'll see what a mess there'll be tomorrow.
His wrath, once expended, did not return, and blinking feebly he listened to excuses and self-justifications (Ermolov did not come to see him till the next day) and to the insistence of Bennigsen, Konovnitsyn, and Toll that the movement that had miscarried should be executed next day.
"The word attack is always on your tongue, but you don't see that we are unable to execute complicated maneuvers," said he to Miloradovich who asked permission to advance.
If not, the Guards will not so much as see a little smoke.
'You see, St. Thomas,' he said to me the other day.
When one has studied, you see, one likes education and well-bred people.'
See, it fits well!
"You see, dear man, this is not a sewing shop, and I had no proper tools; and, as they say, one needs a tool even to kill a louse," said Platon with one of his round smiles, obviously pleased with his work.
You see it's burned down, and there's an end of it....
Just see what the blackguards have looted....
See what that one has behind in the cart....
See how that fellow has loaded himself up, he can hardly walk!
See that fellow there sitting on the trunks....
That fellow's dropped his sack and doesn't see it.
In carriages--see how comfortably they've settled themselves!
Pierre did not see the people as individuals but saw their movement.
Suddenly he burst out into a fit of his broad, good-natured laughter, so loud that men from various sides turned with surprise to see what this strange and evidently solitary laughter could mean.
A man got up and came to see what this queer big fellow was laughing at all by himself.
Napoleon is at Forminsk, said Bolkhovitinov, unable to see in the dark who was speaking but guessing by the voice that it was not Konovnitsyn.
They want to run to see how they have wounded it.
On coming to a path in the forest along which he could see far to the right, Denisov stopped.
"Well, I am glad to see you," Denisov interrupted him, and his face again assumed its anxious expression.
From the spot where the peasant was standing they could see the French.
"You see, I took him first thing at dawn," Tikhon continued, spreading out his flat feet with outturned toes in their bast shoes.
Then I see he's no good and think I'll go and fetch a likelier one.
In the twilight saddled horses could be seen, and Cossacks and hussars who had rigged up rough shelters in the glade and were kindling glowing fires in a hollow of the forest where the French could not see the smoke.
"Well, never mind!" and immediately, blushing and looking anxiously at the officers to see if they appeared ironical, he said:
No one replied a word to Dolokhov's laughter, and a French officer whom they could not see (he lay wrapped in a greatcoat) rose and whispered something to a companion.
Petya rode beside him, longing to look round to see whether or not the French were running after them, but not daring to.
He did not see and did not hear how they shot the prisoners who lagged behind, though more than a hundred perished in that way.
"You see, brothers..." said he when the shouts had ceased... and all at once his voice and the expression of his face changed.
You see, brothers, I know it's hard for you, but it can't be helped!
We'll see our visitors off and then we'll rest.
It is hard for you, but still you are at home while they--you see what they have come to, said he, pointing to the prisoners.
It was pitiful to see them, boys, put in the dancer.
Kutuzov alone would not see this and openly expressed his opinion that no fresh war could improve the position or add to the glory of Russia, but could only spoil and lower the glorious position that Russia had gained.
He could not see an aim, for he now had faith--not faith in any kind of rule, or words, or ideas, but faith in an ever-living, ever-manifest God.
Terenty, when he had helped him undress and wished him good night, often lingered with his master's boots in his hands and clothes over his arm, to see whether he would not start a talk.
There were several prisoners from the French army in Orel, and the doctor brought one of them, a young Italian, to see Pierre.
Everyone was pleased to see Pierre, everyone wished to meet him, and everyone questioned him about what he had seen.
Perhaps she will see me, said Pierre.
A few minutes later the footman returned with Dessalles, who brought word from the princess that she would be very glad to see Pierre if he would excuse her want of ceremony and come upstairs to her apartment.
Pierre had failed to notice Natasha because he did not at all expect to see her there, but he had failed to recognize her because the change in her since he last saw her was immense.
The countess is in a dreadful state; but it was necessary for Natasha herself to see a doctor.
I had no idea and could not imagine what state he was in, all I wanted was to see him and be with him, she said, trembling, and breathing quickly.
"And did you really see and speak to Napoleon, as we have been told?" said Princess Mary.
Not only did I never see him but I heard nothing about him--I was in much lower company!
Shall I have a talk with him and see what he thinks?
The princess seemed to see nothing more extraordinary in that than if he had seen Anna Semenovna.
Let's see what will come of it!
Though Princess Mary and Natasha were evidently glad to see their visitor and though all Pierre's interest was now centered in that house, by the evening they had talked over everything and the conversation passed from one trivial topic to another and repeatedly broke off.
I see a force producing effects beyond the scope of ordinary human agencies; I do not understand why this occurs and I talk of genius.
See what you believed in!
Do you now see that it was not he but I who moved you?
He could see no way out of this situation.
Remembering her friendly relations with all the Rostovs which had made her almost a member of the family, she thought it her duty to go to see them.
One day you are dull, and the next you refuse to see anyone.
Why, you said yourself you don't want even to see her.
"You can see the woman in her already," she said in French, pointing to little Natasha.
I will go and see, said Countess Mary and left the room.
These questions, then as now, existed only for those who see nothing in marriage but the pleasure married people get from one another, that is, only the beginnings of marriage and not its whole significance, which lies in the family.
If only you could see what I was like without you, how I suffered!
You see, he holds it up.
"Now, Nicholas," she added, turning to her husband, "I can't understand how it is you don't see the charm of these delicious marvels."
Doesn't see anything, doesn't remember anything, she went on, repeating her usual phrases.
"Look, Anna Timofeevna," she added to her companion, "see what a box for cards my son has brought us!"
They see treason everywhere and are afraid of everything.
"Oh, I'll go and see," said Pierre, jumping up.
The conversation turned on the contemporary gossip about those in power, in which most people see the chief interest of home politics.
You say that everything here is rotten and that an overthrow is coming: I don't see it.
As I see it you were quite right, and I told Natasha so.
What business was it of mine when I married and was so deep in debt that I was threatened with prison, and had a mother who could not see or understand it?
You see, I don't say that we ought to oppose this and that.
"Did you see her?" she added, after a pause.
Only then, as a result of the contradiction, will they see that they are both wrong.
And so these historians also see and admit historical events which are exceptions to the theory.
The historians, in accord with the old habit of acknowledging divine intervention in human affairs, want to see the cause of events in the expression of the will of someone endowed with power, but that supposition is not confirmed either by reason or by experience.
They do not see that the role of the natural sciences in this matter is merely to serve as an instrument for the illumination of one side of it.
In every action we examine we see a certain measure of freedom and a certain measure of inevitability.
But in the Crusades we already see an event occupying its definite place in history and without which we cannot imagine the modern history of Europe, though to the chroniclers of the Crusades that event appeared as merely due to the will of certain people.
My action seems to me free; but asking myself whether I could raise my arm in every direction, I see that I raised it in the direction in which there was least obstruction to that action either from things around me or from the construction of my own body.
See you at five, OK?
Alex had been the one who helped her see them as true family, and yet he was having issues accepting his own father.
He was respectful of her concerns, but they didn't see eye-to-eye on any of it - except the fact that they both wanted another child.
