Nesvitski with a laugh threw his arms round Prince Andrew, but Bolkonski, turning still paler, pushed him away with an angry look and turned to Zherkov.
"What's the matter?" exclaimed Prince Andrew standing still in his excitement.
*(2) Only a hobbledehoy could amuse himself in this way, he added in Russian--but pronouncing the word with a French accent--having noticed that Zherkov could still hear him.
Denisov's face puckered still more.
Lavrushka turned all the bedding over, looked under the bed and under the table, searched everywhere, and stood still in the middle of the room.
With shifting eyes but eyebrows still raised, Telyanin handed him the purse.
Every muscle of Telyanin's pale, terrified face began to quiver, his eyes still shifted from side to side but with a downward look not rising to Rostov's face, and his sobs were audible.
Look at me, cried Denisov who, unable to keep still on one spot, kept turning his horse in front of the squadron.
"I will the bridge fire," he said in a solemn tone as if to announce that in spite of all the unpleasantness he had to endure he would still do the right thing.
For Christ's sake let me alone! cried the wounded man, but still he was lifted and laid on the stretcher.
And fairer still were the faraway blue mountains beyond the river, the nunnery, the mysterious gorges, and the pine forests veiled in the mist of their summits...
"Take this and deliver it," said he to his adjutant, handing him the papers and still taking no notice of the special messenger.
That is true, but still why didn't you capture him?
Prince Auersperg is on this, on our side of the river, and is defending us--doing it very badly, I think, but still he is defending us.
"But still this does not mean that the campaign is over," said Prince Andrew.
"Oh, your excellency!" said Franz, with difficulty rolling the portmanteau into the vehicle, "we are to move on still farther.
I was wrong to laugh at Mack, we're getting it still worse, said Nesvitski.
"Get in," said Kutuzov, and noticing that Bolkonski still delayed, he added: "I need good officers myself, need them myself!"
Kutuzov with his transport had still to march for some days before he could reach Znaim.
Behind the guns were their limbers and still farther back picket ropes and artillerymen's bonfires.
But still, to conceive a future life...
He still looked ahead while Prince Andrew told him what he had seen.
The Cossack was dead, but the horse still struggled.
They were still firing, not at the cavalry which had disappeared, but at French infantry who had come into the hollow and were firing at our men.
He spoke as if those bullets could not kill him, and his half-closed eyes gave still more persuasiveness to his words.
Still no one moved.
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.
The officers' laughter confused him still more.
Still less did he think of injuring anyone for his own advantage.
Pierre signed the deed and after that the princess grew still kinder.
And you are still so young.
That Princess Helene will be beautiful still when she's fifty.
Pierre and Helene still sat talking just as before.
"Still the same," she said to her husband.
Dressed as she used to be in Petersburg society, it was still more noticeable how much plainer she had become.
Princess Mary's self-esteem was wounded by the fact that the arrival of a suitor agitated her, and still more so by both her companions' not having the least conception that it could be otherwise.
It was not the dress, but the face and whole figure of Princess Mary that was not pretty, but neither Mademoiselle Bourienne nor the little princess felt this; they still thought that if a blue ribbon were placed in the hair, the hair combed up, and the blue scarf arranged lower on the best maroon dress, and so on, all would be well.
They forgot that the frightened face and the figure could not be altered, and that however they might change the setting and adornment of that face, it would still remain piteous and plain.
She still could not see him.
Ha, ha, ha! laughed Prince Bolkonski, and Anatole laughed still louder.
Her favorite sonata bore her into a most intimately poetic world and the look she felt upon her made that world still more poetic.
Can it be possible? she thought, not daring to look at his face, but still feeling his eyes gazing at her.
"Devil take 'em!" he muttered, while his head was still covered by the shirt.
Yes or no, yes or no, yes or no! he still shouted when the princess, as if lost in a fog, had already staggered out of the study.
It was untrue to be sure, but still it was terrible, and she could not help thinking of it.
Anna Mikhaylovna, though her circumstances had improved, was still living with the Rostovs.
"You are still the same dreamer, I see," remarked Boris, shaking his head.
And you're still the same diplomatist!
Still I remained silent.
And he was still more angry at having omitted to say it.
And at that moment, though the day was still, a light gust of wind blowing over the army slightly stirred the streamers on the lances and the unfolded standards fluttered against their staffs.
Seeing that smile, Rostov involuntarily smiled himself and felt a still stronger flow of love for his sovereign.
Well, my dear fellow, so you still want to be an adjutant?
Everyone at headquarters was still under the spell of the day's council, at which the party of the young had triumphed.
He listened to what Langeron said, as if remarking, "So you are still at that silly business!" quickly closed his eye again, and let his head sink still lower.
The shouting grew still louder and merged into a general roar that only an army of several thousand men could produce.
Rostov, still looking round toward the fires and the shouts, rode with the sergeant to meet some mounted men who were riding along the line.
Officer!" said Bagration to Rostov, "are the enemy's skirmishers still there?"
Dolgorukov was still insisting that the French had retreated and had only lit fires to deceive us.
At five in the morning it was still quite dark.
The fog that was dispersing on the hill lay still more densely below, where they were descending.
Not a single muscle of his face--which in those days was still thin--moved.
But still he did not begin the engagement.
In the morning all that was left of the night mist on the heights was a hoar frost now turning to dew, but in the valleys it still lay like a milk-white sea.
The enemy is still far away, your excellency.
Seeing him, Kutuzov's malevolent and caustic expression softened, as if admitting that what was being done was not his adjutant's fault, and still not answering the Austrian adjutant, he addressed Bolkonski.
What are they doing? he murmured to himself, still not replying to the Austrian.
Kutuzov still in the same place, his stout body resting heavily in the saddle with the lassitude of age, sat yawning wearily with closed eyes.
Having forced his way out of the crowd of fugitives, Prince Andrew, trying to keep near Kutuzov, saw on the slope of the hill amid the smoke a Russian battery that was still firing and Frenchmen running toward it.
Above him there was now nothing but the sky--the lofty sky, not clear yet still immeasurably lofty, with gray clouds gliding slowly across it.
The Horse Guards were galloping, but still holding in their horses.
Rostov, fearing to be crushed or swept into the attack on the French, galloped along the front as hard as his horse could go, but still was not in time to avoid them.
In the village of Hosjeradek there were Russian troops retiring from the field of battle, who though still in some confusion were less disordered.
Better die a thousand times than risk receiving an unkind look or bad opinion from him, Rostov decided; and sorrowfully and with a heart full despair he rode away, continually looking back at the Tsar, who still remained in the same attitude of indecision.
After five o'clock it was only at the Augesd Dam that a hot cannonade (delivered by the French alone) was still to be heard from numerous batteries ranged on the slopes of the Pratzen Heights, directed at our retreating forces.
The nearest soldiers shrank back, the gun driver stopped his horse, but from behind still came the shouts: Onto the ice, why do you stop?
Still the cannon balls continued regularly to whistle and flop onto the ice and into the water and oftenest of all among the crowd that covered the dam, the pond, and the bank.
Above him again was the same lofty sky with clouds that had risen and were floating still higher, and between them gleamed blue infinity.
Looking into Napoleon's eyes Prince Andrew thought of the insignificance of greatness, the unimportance of life which no one could understand, and the still greater unimportance of death, the meaning of which no one alive could understand or explain.
There's the corner at the crossroads, where the cabman, Zakhar, has his stand, and there's Zakhar himself and still the same horse!
He gave her a grateful look, but was still expectant and looking for someone.
Today, when he had caught a glimpse of her, she seemed still more lovely.
"Well, and are you still true to Boris?" he continued.
To him the club entrusted the arrangement of the festival in honor of Bagration, for few men knew so well how to arrange a feast on an open-handed, hospitable scale, and still fewer men would be so well able and willing to make up out of their own resources what might be needed for the success of the fete.
But still tell him to come to the club--it will all blow over.
"All right," said Pierre, still smiling in the same way.
He sucked and swallowed the cold snow, his lips quivered but his eyes, still smiling, glittered with effort and exasperation as he mustered his remaining strength.
To the great regret of myself and of the whole army it is still uncertain whether he is alive or not.
Still lower, beyond the turn of the staircase, one could hear the footstep of someone in thick felt boots, and a voice that seemed familiar to Princess Mary was saying something.
"Ah, what have you done to me?" it still seemed to say, and Prince Andrew felt that something gave way in his soul and that he was guilty of a sin he could neither remedy nor forget.
And believe me, if I still value my life it is only because I still hope to meet such a divine creature, who will regenerate, purify, and elevate me.
There now, I like your Denisov though he is a rake and all that, still I like him; so you see I do understand.
It may be arrogant of me, but still it is best to say it.
"Still, don't ruin yourself!" said Dolokhov with a side glance at Rostov as he continued to deal.
I am well and strong and still the same and in the same place.
"Everything's still the same with them," thought Nicholas, glancing into the drawing room, where he saw Vera and his mother with the old lady.
He had begun to think of the last station and was still pondering on the same question--one so important that he took no notice of what went on around him.
He paused, his gaze still on Pierre, and moved aside on the sofa by way of inviting the other to take a seat beside him.
He felt afraid of what would happen to him and still more afraid of showing his fear.
It must be so, but I am still so weak that I love my life, the meaning of which is only now gradually opening before me.
A bass voice (Pierre was still blindfolded) questioned him as to who he was, when and where he was born, and so on.
Pierre himself grew still more confused, blushed like a child till tears came to his eyes, began looking about him uneasily, and an awkward pause followed.
But what was still stranger, though of this Prince Andrew said nothing to his sister, was that in the expression the sculptor had happened to give the angel's face, Prince Andrew read the same mild reproach he had read on the face of his dead wife: "Ah, why have you done this to me?"
He still had all the letters in his hand.
Princess Mary was still standing by the cot, gently rocking the baby.
He did not look round, but still gazing at the infant's face listened to his regular breathing.
Each made the other a warning gesture and stood still in the dim light beneath the curtain as if not wishing to leave that seclusion where they three were shut off from all the world.
Instead of the new life he had hoped to lead he still lived the old life, only in new surroundings.
He did not know that since the nursing mothers were no longer sent to work on his land, they did still harder work on their own land.
The house lay behind a newly dug pond filled with water to the brink and with banks still bare of grass.
The homestead consisted of a threshing floor, outhouses, stables, a bathhouse, a lodge, and a large brick house with semicircular facade still in course of construction.
He quickly entered the small reception room with its still-unplastered wooden walls redolent of pine, and would have gone farther, but Anton ran ahead on tiptoe and knocked at a door.
The sun had sunk half below the horizon and an evening frost was starring the puddles near the ferry, but Pierre and Andrew, to the astonishment of the footmen, coachmen, and ferrymen, still stood on the raft and talked.
Old women's nonsense--old women's nonsense! he repeated, but still he patted Pierre affectionately on the shoulder, and then went up to the table where Prince Andrew, evidently not wishing to join in the conversation, was looking over the papers his father had brought from town.
The foul air, to which he had already begun to get used in the corridor, was still stronger here.
He stood still, looking silently around.
His face was purple, his eyes were rolled back so that only the whites were seen, and on his bare legs and arms which were still red, the veins stood out like cords.
"Yes, your honor," the soldier replied complacently, and rolling his eyes more than ever he drew himself up still straighter, but did not move.
His pale waxen face was still freckled and his eyes were rolled back.
How are you, how are you? he called out, still in the same voice as in the regiment, but Rostov noticed sadly that under this habitual ease and animation some new, sinister, hidden feeling showed itself in the expression of Denisov's face and the intonations of his voice.
Only the man who had the next bed, a stout Uhlan, continued to sit on his bed, gloomily frowning and smoking a pipe, and little one-armed Tushin still listened, shaking his head disapprovingly.
In the army, Bonaparte and the French were still regarded with mingled feelings of anger, contempt, and fear.
Prince Andrew spent half his time at Bald Hills with his father and his son, who was still in the care of nurses.
Everything was stone-still, like the moon and its light and the shadows.
Again all was silent, but Prince Andrew knew she was still sitting there.
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.
The same inquisitive, challenging, and rather mocking eyes still looked at him.
Seeing that her mother was still praying she ran on tiptoe to the bed and, rapidly slipping one little foot against the other, pushed off her slippers and jumped onto the bed the countess had feared might become her grave.
A third of the visitors had already arrived, but the Rostovs, who were to be present, were still hurrying to get dressed.
She was still sitting before a looking-glass with a dressing jacket thrown over her slender shoulders.
They had decided to be at the ball by half past ten, and Natasha had still to get dressed and they had to call at the Taurida Gardens.
Don't come in, Papa! she cried to her father as he opened the door--speaking from under the filmy skirt which still covered her whole face.
"Say what you like," exclaimed Sonya, in a despairing voice as she looked at Natasha, "say what you like, it's still too long."
But they had still to call at the Taurida Gardens.
On entering the ballroom the regular hum of voices, footsteps, and greetings deafened Natasha, and the light and glitter dazzled her still more.
Yes, she is still the most beautiful of them all, our Marya Antonovna!
In the middle of the cotillion, having completed one of the figures, Natasha, still out of breath, was returning to her seat when another dancer chose her.
While still in the anteroom Prince Andrew heard loud voices and a ringing staccato laugh--a laugh such as one hears on the stage.
Speranski, wearing a gray swallow-tail coat with a star on the breast, and evidently still the same waistcoat and high white stock he had worn at the meeting of the Council of State, stood at the table with a beaming countenance.
Still laughing, Speranski held out his soft white hand to Prince Andrew.
Before Magnitski had finished his story someone else was anxious to relate something still funnier.
(He smiled still more pleasantly.)
"What has happened to her?" he asked himself with still greater surprise.
This return to the subject of Natalie caused Prince Andrew to knit his brows with discomfort: he was about to rise, but Vera continued with a still more subtle smile:
When she had finished her first exercise she stood still in the middle of the room and sang a musical phrase that particularly pleased her.
It is true that Natasha is still young, but--so long as that?...
"Did your mother tell you that it cannot be for a year?" asked Prince Andrew, still looking into her eyes.
Sometimes the others would get up and go away and the couple, left alone, still remained silent.
He grew still more irritable, and it was Princess Mary who generally bore the brunt of his frequent fits of unprovoked anger.
Simon did not finish, for on the still air he had distinctly caught the music of the hunt with only two or three hounds giving tongue.
The wolf paused, turned its heavy forehead toward the dogs awkwardly, like a man suffering from the quinsy, and, still slightly swaying from side to side, gave a couple of leaps and with a swish of its tail disappeared into the skirt of the wood.
No, it's impossible! thought Nicholas, still shouting with a hoarse voice.
There was still hope.
The old count went home, and Natasha and Petya promised to return very soon, but as it was still early the hunt went farther.
While still at a distance he took off his cap and tried to speak respectfully, but he was pale and breathless and his face was angry.
Do you want a taste of this?... said the huntsman, pointing to his dagger and probably imagining himself still speaking to his foe.
Rugay, his back still muddy, came into the room and lay down on the sofa, cleaning himself with his tongue and teeth.
On the tray was a bottle of herb wine, different kinds of vodka, pickled mushrooms, rye cakes made with buttermilk, honey in the comb, still mead and sparkling mead, apples, nuts (raw and roasted), and nut-and-honey sweets.
"Ah, there are still lights in the drawing-room!" she said, pointing to the windows of the house that gleamed invitingly in the moist velvety darkness of the night.
Count Ilya Rostov had resigned the position of Marshal of the Nobility because it involved him in too much expense, but still his affairs did not improve.
There was still the hunting establishment which Nicholas had enlarged.
Natasha was still as much in love with her betrothed, found the same comfort in that love, and was still as ready to throw herself into all the pleasures of life as before; but at the end of the fourth month of their separation she began to have fits of depression which she could not master.
Dimmler had finished the piece but still sat softly running his fingers over the strings, evidently uncertain whether to stop or to play something else.
"No, I don't believe we ever were in animals," said Natasha, still in a whisper though the music had ceased.
Faster still the two troykas flew side by side, and faster moved the feet of the galloping side horses.
Zakhar, while still keeping his arms extended, raised one hand with the reins.
They were still surrounded by the magic plain bathed in moonlight and spangled with stars.
And if this is really Melyukovka, it is still stranger that we drove heaven knows where and have come to Melyukovka, thought Nicholas.
Sonya was unhappy at the separation from Nicholas and still more so on account of the hostile tone the countess could not help adopting toward her.
There was still no improvement in the countess' health, but it was impossible to defer the journey to Moscow any longer.
On coming home, while his valets were still taking off his things, he picked up a book and began to read.
Why do you ask me that? said Princess Mary, still thinking of that morning's conversation with her father.
"Really?" asked Princess Mary, looking into Pierre's kindly face and still thinking of her own sorrow.
The countess was still unwell and unable to travel but it was impossible to wait for her recovery.
Natasha suddenly shrank into herself and involuntarily assumed an offhand air which alienated Princess Mary still more.
"Dear me, Michael Kirilovich has grown still stouter!" remarked the count.
His face looked sad, and he had grown still stouter since Natasha last saw him.
Still less could he be accused of ambition.
She was still too agitated by the encounter to be able to talk of the affair calmly.
On returning late in the evening Sonya went to Natasha's room, and to her surprise found her still dressed and asleep on the sofa.
Sonya began watching her friend still more attentively and noticed that at dinner and all that evening Natasha was in a strange and unnatural state.
Lie still, stay like that then, I won't touch you.
But still he pitied Prince Andrew to the point of tears and sympathized with his wounded pride, and the more he pitied his friend the more did he think with contempt and even with disgust of that Natasha who had just passed him in the ballroom with such a look of cold dignity.
"Is he still here?" she asked, quickly.
"Though it was tÃªte-Ã -tÃªte," Anatole continued, "still I can't..."
I know his pride will not let him express his feelings, but still he has taken it better, far better, than I expected.
Still getting stouter? he said with animation, but the new wrinkle on his forehead deepened.
"Then she is here still?" said Prince Andrew.
She stopped and breathed still more quickly, but did not shed tears.
She began to cry and a still greater sense of pity, tenderness, and love welled up in Pierre.
At midnight dancing was still going on.
It still depends on Your Majesty to preserve humanity from the calamity of another war.
"Your Majesty," replied Balashev, "my master, the Emperor, does not desire war and as Your Majesty sees..." said Balashev, using the words Your Majesty at every opportunity, with the affectation unavoidable in frequently addressing one to whom the title was still a novelty.
He became still more absorbed in his task when the Russian general entered, and after glancing over his spectacles at Balashev's face, which was animated by the beauty of the morning and by his talk with Murat, he did not rise or even stir, but scowled still more and sneered malevolently.
Contrary to his expectation, Davout, after hearing him, became still surlier and ruder.
Balashev took out the packet containing the Emperor's letter and laid it on the table (made of a door with its hinges still hanging on it, laid across two barrels).
Napoleon was silent, still looking derisively at him and evidently not listening to him.
Has he not thought that I may do the same? and he turned inquiringly to Balashev, and evidently this thought turned him back on to the track of his morning's anger, which was still fresh in him.
Dessalles, the tutor he had brought from Switzerland, was wearing a coat of Russian cut and talking broken Russian to the servants, but was still the same narrowly intelligent, conscientious, and pedantic preceptor.
What meant still more to him was that he sought and did not find in himself the former tenderness for his son which he had hoped to reawaken by caressing the boy and taking him on his knee.
Prince Andrew's eyes were still following Pfuel out of the room when Count Bennigsen entered hurriedly, and nodding to Bolkonski, but not pausing, went into the study, giving instructions to his adjutant as he went.
"Use your finger, Mary Hendrikhovna, it will be still nicer," said Rostov.
As soon as he had left the room all the officers burst into loud laughter and Mary Hendrikhovna blushed till her eyes filled with tears and thereby became still more attractive to them.
Seeing his gloomy face as he frowned at his wife, the officers grew still merrier, and some of them could not refrain from laughter, for which they hurriedly sought plausible pretexts.
Still laughing and talking, the officers began hurriedly getting ready and again boiled some muddy water in the samovar.
That curly grass which always grows by country roadsides became clearly visible, still wet with the night's rain; the drooping branches of the birches, also wet, swayed in the wind and flung down bright drops of water to one side.
As soon as the sun appeared in a clear strip of sky beneath the clouds, the wind fell, as if it dared not spoil the beauty of the summer morning after the storm; drops still continued to fall, but vertically now, and all was still.
A few minutes later it reappeared brighter still from behind the top of the cloud, tearing its edge.
Rostov still had the same indefinite feeling, as of shame.
But while Nicholas was considering these questions and still could reach no clear solution of what puzzled him so, the wheel of fortune in the service, as often happens, turned in his favor.
On her way home at an early hour when she met no one but bricklayers going to work or men sweeping the street, and everybody within the houses was still asleep, Natasha experienced a feeling new to her, a sense of the possibility of correcting her faults, the possibility of a new, clean life, and of happiness.
Pierre still went into society, drank as much and led the same idle and dissipated life, because besides the hours he spent at the Rostovs' there were other hours he had to spend somehow, and the habits and acquaintances he had made in Moscow formed a current that bore him along irresistibly.
Petya stopped short, flushed till he perspired, but still got out the words, "when our Fatherland is in danger."
For a moment the crowd stood still, but then it made another rush forward.
He sat on his elevation--the pedestal of the cannon--still agitated as before by the thought of the Emperor and by his love for him.
The firing was still proceeding when officers, generals, and gentlemen-in-waiting came running out of the cathedral, and after them others in a more leisurely manner: caps were again raised, and those who had run to look at the cannon ran back again.
The people are still hoping to see Your Majesty again.
Petya's eyes grew bloodshot, and still more excited by the danger of being crushed, he rushed at the biscuits.
Prince Vasili, who still occupied his former important posts, formed a connecting link between these two circles.
On waking she listened to what was going on behind the door and, hearing him groan, said to herself with a sigh that things were still the same.
Princess Mary stopped at the porch, still horrified by her spiritual baseness and trying to arrange her thoughts before going to her father.
He was still lying on the bed as before, but the stern expression of his quiet face made Princess Mary stop short on the threshold.
But such undercurrents still existed among the people and gathered new forces ready to manifest themselves just as strangely, unexpectedly, and at the same time simply, naturally, and forcibly.
With mournful pleasure she now lingered over these images, repelling with horror only the last one, the picture of his death, which she felt she could not contemplate even in imagination at this still and mystic hour of night.
Following Dunyasha, Alpatych advanced to Rostov, having bared his head while still at a distance.
This memory carried him sadly and sweetly back to those painful feelings of which he had not thought lately, but which still found place in his soul.
Since Prince Andrew had last seen him Kutuzov had grown still more corpulent, flaccid, and fat.
But the bleached eyeball, the scar, and the familiar weariness of his expression were still the same.
Kutuzov, his hands still pressed on the seat, glanced at him glumly.
He found him reclining in an armchair, still in the same unbuttoned overcoat.
"I'll tell you what to do," he continued, as Prince Andrew still did not reply: "I will tell you what to do, and what I do.
Only the eldest princess, the one with the stony face and long waist, was still living in Pierre's house.
The ancients have left us model heroic poems in which the heroes furnish the whole interest of the story, and we are still unable to accustom ourselves to the fact that for our epoch histories of that kind are meaningless.
In that case we should probably have defended the Shevardino Redoubt--our left flank-- still more obstinately.
On seeing these peasants, who were evidently still amused by the novelty of their position as soldiers, Pierre once more thought of the wounded men at Mozhaysk and understood what the soldier had meant when he said: "They want the whole nation to fall on them."
Then they rode downhill and uphill, across a ryefield trodden and beaten down as if by hail, following a track freshly made by the artillery over the furrows of the plowed land, and reached some fleches * which were still being dug.
From the fleches they rode still farther to the left, along a road winding through a thick, low-growing birch wood.
That all this should still be, but no me....
They slander him as a traitor, and the only result will be that afterwards, ashamed of their false accusations, they will make him out a hero or a genius instead of a traitor, and that will be still more unjust.
And I?... and he is still alive and gay!
Having sat still for a while he touched--himself not knowing why--the thick spot of paint representing the highest light in the portrait, rose, and recalled de Beausset and the officer on duty.
When Napoleon came out of the tent the shouting of the Guards before his son's portrait grew still louder.
The dispositions drawn up by Weyrother for the battle of Austerlitz were a model of perfection for that kind of composition, but still they were criticized--criticized for their very perfection, for their excessive minuteness.
He asked whether the Russians had not withdrawn, and was told that the enemy's fires were still in the same places.
He was not sleepy and it was still not nearly morning.
It was still only four o'clock.
The punch was finished and there was still nothing to do.
The sun, just bursting forth from behind a cloud that had concealed it, was shining, with rays still half broken by the clouds, over the roofs of the street opposite, on the dew- besprinkled dust of the road, on the walls of the houses, on the windows, the fence, and on Pierre's horses standing before the hut.
It seemed as if those smoke clouds sometimes ran and sometimes stood still while woods, fields, and glittering bayonets ran past them.
From the left, over fields and bushes, those large balls of smoke were continually appearing followed by their solemn reports, while nearer still, in the hollows and woods, there burst from the muskets small cloudlets that had no time to become balls, but had their little echoes in just the same way.
We can get a view from there and in our battery it is still bearable, said the adjutant.
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 ranks of the infantry disappeared amid the smoke but their long- drawn shout and rapid musketry firing could still be heard.
Projectiles began to fall still more frequently in the battery.
Around the cannon the men moved still more briskly and busily.
The young officer, with his face still more flushed, commanded the men more scrupulously than ever.
The young officer still sat in the same way, bent double, in a pool of blood at the edge of the earth wall.
The red-faced man was still twitching, but they did not carry him away.
Still, it is better to wait before we rejoice.
The wounded man was shown his amputated leg stained with clotted blood and with the boot still on.
"Our fire is mowing them down by rows, but still they hold on," said the adjutant.
At the beginning of the battle they stood blocking the way to Moscow and they still did so at the end of the battle as at the beginning.
From all this talk he saw only one thing: that to defend Moscow was a physical impossibility in the full meaning of those words, that is to say, so utterly impossible that if any senseless commander were to give orders to fight, confusion would result but the battle would still not take place.
He sat, sunk deep in a folding armchair, and continually cleared his throat and pulled at the collar of his coat which, though it was unbuttoned, still seemed to pinch his neck.
They were ashamed to be called cowards, ashamed to leave, but still they left, knowing it had to be done.
Toward the end of the battle of Borodino, Pierre, having run down from Raevski's battery a second time, made his way through a gully to Knyazkovo with a crowd of soldiers, reached the dressing station, and seeing blood and hearing cries and groans hurried on, still entangled in the crowds of soldiers.
The yard was crowded with peasant carts, some loaded high and already corded up, others still empty.
At first she found it amusing to give away dresses and ribbons to the maids, but when that was done and what was left had still to be packed, she found it dull.
Natasha moved a few steps forward and stopped shyly, still holding her handkerchief, and listened to what the housekeeper was saying.
Natasha quietly repeated her question, and her face and whole manner were so serious, though she was still holding the ends of her handkerchief, that the major ceased smiling and after some reflection-- as if considering in how far the thing was possible--replied in the affirmative.
The old count, suddenly setting to work, kept passing from the yard to the house and back again, shouting confused instructions to the hurrying people, and flurrying them still more.
There was also much china standing on the tables, and still more was being brought in from the storeroom.
Berg, the Rostovs' son-in-law, was already a colonel wearing the orders of Vladimir and Anna, and he still filled the quiet and agreeable post of assistant to the head of the staff of the assistant commander of the first division of the Second Army.
You have still time to get away....
The loaded carts were still standing in the yard.
The count stood still at the window and listened.
We will still take all the most necessary things.
Pierre took her outstretched hand and kissed it awkwardly as he walked along beside her while the coach still moved on.

The caleche flew over the ground as fast as the horses could draw it, but for a long time Count Rostopchin still heard the insane despairing screams growing fainter in the distance, while his eyes saw nothing but the astonished, frightened, bloodstained face of "the traitor" in the fur-lined coat.
He seemed still to hear the sound of his own words: Cut him down!
Troops were still crowding at the Yauza bridge.
It was a weary and famished, but still a fighting and menacing army.
All around the quarters occupied by the French were other regions still unexplored and unoccupied where, they thought, yet greater riches might be found.
And the risk to which he would expose his life by carrying out his design excited him still more.
But the French entered and still Pierre did not retire--an irresistible curiosity kept him there.
Still smiling, the French officer spread out his hands before Gerasim's nose, intimating that he did not understand him either, and moved, limping, to the door at which Pierre was standing.
The satisfaction of his hunger and the wine rendered the captain still more lively and he chatted incessantly all through dinner.
Pierre still considered that it would be a useful and worthy action to slay the evildoer, but now he felt that he would not do it.

Finally, the latest episode in Poland still fresh in the captain's memory, and which he narrated with rapid gestures and glowing face, was of how he had saved the life of a Pole (in general, the saving of life continually occurred in the captain's stories) and the Pole had entrusted to him his enchanting wife (parisienne de coeur) while himself entering the French service.
He said that in all his life he had loved and still loved only one woman, and that she could never be his.

In that world some structure was still being erected and did not fall, something was still stretching out, and the candle with its red halo was still burning, and the same shirtlike sphinx lay near the door; but besides all this something creaked, there was a whiff of fresh air, and a new white sphinx appeared, standing at the door.
He ran round to the other side of the lodge and was about to dash into that part of it which was still standing, when just above his head he heard several voices shouting and then a cracking sound and the ring of something heavy falling close beside him.

When he had finished that business it was already too late to go anywhere but still too early to go to bed, and for a long time he paced up and down the room, reflecting on his life, a thing he rarely did.

He glanced through it, then read it again, and then again, and standing still in the middle of the room he raised his shoulders, stretching out his hands, with his mouth wide open and his eyes fixed.
In their attitude toward him could still be felt both uncertainty as to who he might be – perhaps a very important person – and hostility as a result of their recent personal conflict with him.

Having crossed over, by a forced march, to the Tula road beyond the Pakhra, the Russian commanders intended to remain at Podolsk and had no thought of the Tarutino position; but innumerable circumstances and the reappearance of French troops who had for a time lost touch with the Russians, and projects of giving battle, and above all the abundance of provisions in Kaluga province, obliged our army to turn still more to the south and to cross from the Tula to the Kaluga road and go to Tarutino, which was between the roads along which those supplies lay.

But even if we admitted that Kutuzov, Chichagov, and others were the cause of the Russian failures, it is still incomprehensible why, the position of the Russian army being what it was at Krasnoe and at the Berezina (in both cases we had superior forces), the French army with its marshals, kings, and Emperor was not captured, if that was what the Russians aimed at.

It was already six in the morning and he still paced up and down the room.
Well, Savelich, do you still not wish to accept your freedom?
With Mademoiselle Bourienne's help the princess had maintained the conversation very well, but at the very last moment, just when he rose, she was so tired of talking of what did not interest her, and her mind was so full of the question why she alone was granted so little happiness in life, that in a fit of absent-mindedness she sat still, her luminous eyes gazing fixedly before her, not noticing that he had risen.
