The shore is composed of a belt of smooth rounded white stones like paving-stones, excepting one or two short sand beaches, and is so steep that in many places a single leap will carry you into water over your head; and were it not for its remarkable transparency, that would be the last to be seen of its bottom till it rose on the opposite side.
The forest has never so good a setting, nor is so distinctly beautiful, as when seen from the middle of a small lake amid hills which rise from the water's edge; for the water in which it is reflected not only makes the best foreground in such a case, but, with its winding shore, the most natural and agreeable boundary to it.

William Gilpin, who is so admirable in all that relates to landscapes, and usually so correct, standing at the head of Loch Fyne, in Scotland, which he describes as "a bay of salt water, sixty or seventy fathoms deep, four miles in breadth," and about fifty miles long, surrounded by mountains, observes, "If we could have seen it immediately after the diluvian crash, or whatever convulsion of nature occasioned it, before the waters gushed in, what a horrid chasm must it have appeared!

Everything was similar: the ladies' subtle talk, the cards, the general raising his voice at the card table, and the samovar and the tea cakes; only one thing was lacking that he had always seen at the evening parties he wished to imitate.
"Have you seen the young countess?" he asked.
That instant, when Nicholas saw the wolf struggling in the gully with the dogs, while from under them could be seen her gray hair and outstretched hind leg and her frightened choking head, with her ears laid back (Karay was pinning her by the throat), was the happiest moment of his life.
Nicholas, though he had never seen Ilagin, with his usual absence of moderation in judgment, hated him cordially from reports of his arbitrariness and violence, and regarded him as his bitterest foe.
Natasha ate of everything and thought she had never seen or eaten such buttermilk cakes, such aromatic jam, such honey-and-nut sweets, or such a chicken anywhere.
But no-- this is something new I've never seen before.
And really, that evening, Sonya was brighter, more animated, and prettier than Nicholas had ever seen her before.
Sonya had not seen anything, she was just wanting to blink and to get up when she heard Natasha say, "Of course she will!"
And when saying this she herself fancied she had really seen what she described.
Had he not seen the possibility of, and passionately desired, the regeneration of the sinful human race, and his own progress to the highest degree of perfection?
The Rostovs had not seen him since their arrival.
Why, you have read his letter and you have seen him.
"Come into the courtyard or you'll be seen; she'll come out directly," said she.
Yes, I have just seen him.
Pierre without greeting his wife whom he had not seen since his return-- at that moment she was more repulsive to him than ever--entered the drawing room and seeing Anatole went up to him.
The Comte de Turenne showed him into a big reception room where many generals, gentlemen-in-waiting, and Polish magnates--several of whom Balashev had seen at the court of the Emperor of Russia--were waiting.
Armfeldt says our army is cut in half, and Paulucci says we have got the French army between two fires; Michaud says that the worthlessness of the Drissa camp lies in having the river behind it, and Pfuel says that is what constitutes its strength; Toll proposes one plan, Armfeldt another, and they are all good and all bad, and the advantages of any suggestions can be seen only at the moment of trial.
The crowd drew up to the large table, at which sat gray-haired or bald seventy-year-old magnates, uniformed and besashed almost all of whom Pierre had seen in their own homes with their buffoons, or playing boston at the clubs.
One of the visitors, usually spoken of as "a man of great merit," having described how he had that day seen Kutuzov, the newly chosen chief of the Petersburg militia, presiding over the enrollment of recruits at the Treasury, cautiously ventured to suggest that Kutuzov would be the man to satisfy all requirements.
At that moment, on the road leading from the big house, two women and a man in a white hat were seen coming toward the officers.
Since Prince Andrew had last seen him Kutuzov had grown still more corpulent, flaccid, and fat.
Prince Andrew told Kutuzov all he knew of his father's death, and what he had seen at Bald Hills when he passed through it.
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.
It's not the soldiers only, but I've seen peasants today, too....
All he had seen that day, all the significant and stern expressions on the faces he had seen in passing, were lit up for him by a new light.
No one had seen him.
From that point of view he gazed at the Oriental beauty he had not seen before.
He was the same as ever, but the feverish color of his face, his glittering eyes rapturously turned toward her, and especially his neck, delicate as a child's, revealed by the turn-down collar of his shirt, gave him a peculiarly innocent, childlike look, such as she had never seen on him before.
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.
"Yes, yes!" cried Natasha opening her eyes wide, and vaguely recalling that Sonya had told her something about Prince Andrew whom she had seen lying down.
I saw him lying on a bed," said she, making a gesture with her hand and a lifted finger at each detail, "and that he had his eyes closed and was covered just with a pink quilt, and that his hands were folded," she concluded, convincing herself that the details she had just seen were exactly what she had seen in the mirror.
She had in fact seen nothing then but had mentioned the first thing that came into her head, but what she had invented then seemed to her now as real as any other recollection.
She not only remembered what she had then said--that he turned to look at her and smiled and was covered with something red--but was firmly convinced that she had then seen and said that he was covered with a pink quilt and that his eyes were closed.
Sonya was softened, excited, and touched by all that had occurred that day, especially by the mysterious fulfillment she had just seen of her vision.
Why was he in the yard of a burning house where witnesses had seen him?
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.
But there seemed to be no one to celebrate this holiday: everywhere were blackened ruins, and the few Russians to be seen were tattered and frightened people who tried to hide when they saw the French.
He had changed very much since Princess Mary had last seen him.
"But why are you angry?" remonstrated Tikhon, "just as if I'd never seen your Frenchmen!
The princess seemed to see nothing more extraordinary in that than if he had seen Anna Semenovna.
She was going to say that to speak of love was impossible, but she stopped because she had seen by the sudden change in Natasha two days before that she would not only not be hurt if Pierre spoke of his love, but that it was the very thing she wished for.
You and I haven't seen anything of one another yet...
It was the first time Carmen had seen Alondra actually laugh.
You've seen our house.
You should have seen her when he came in carrying a doll.
I would have seen the train.
He was unusually coordinated for such a large man, at least any she had seen up to now.
You should have seen Allen's face.
Nothing she had seen indicated he was using drugs.
Either he hadn't seen her or he preferred not to mention it.
It might have been something she would suspect if she had ever seen him in the pool.
I've never seen him this way before.
If she had asked about the building when we passed it, I might have figured she had never seen it, but she pretended she didn't notice.
I ain't seen her take the whip to you once.
I don't believe I have ever seen you in a dress before.
No, I haven't seen it, but I won't be driving the forty miles every day, either.
Do you realize that's the first time I've ever seen you smile?
Yes; for they eat of the dama-fruit, as we all do, and that keeps them from being seen by any eye, whether human or animal.
He had seen considerable of life in the cities in his younger days, and knew that this regal palace was no place for him.
Its wooden legs moved so fast that their twinkling could scarcely be seen, and although so much smaller than the cab-horse it covered the ground much faster.
They told him about the wonderful things they had seen there.
He might be seen every day with a bag of charcoal on his back, carrying it to some of his customers.
When have we seen so many fortunes made by so many so quickly?
Say from whom you had it.' 'I have seen no papers, I made it up myself.'
You should have seen her ecstasy, and how he caught it for having stayed away so long.
Either she had never seen him angry or he had cleverly concealed it - like every other emotion.
Have you seen his room lately?
He must have seen something besides tracks or he wouldn't be so concerned.
