Suddenly a change passed over the tree.
Suddenly an influx of light filled my house, though the evening was at hand, and the clouds of winter still overhung it, and the eaves were dripping with sleety rain.
The pitch pines and shrub oaks about my house, which had so long drooped, suddenly resumed their several characters, looked brighter, greener, and more erect and alive, as if effectually cleansed and restored by the rain.
He suddenly blushed crimson, and it was plain that he had made a great effort to say this.

She had the air of one who has suddenly lost faith in the whole human race.

Mary! they suddenly exclaimed, and then laughed.

Prince Andrew looked sternly at her and an expression of anger suddenly came over his face.
He signed with a flourish and suddenly turning to his son began to laugh.
"Remember this, Prince Andrew, if they kill you it will hurt me, your old father..." he paused unexpectedly, and then in a querulous voice suddenly shrieked: "but if I hear that you have not behaved like a son of Nicholas Bolkonski, I shall be ashamed!"
Go! he suddenly shouted in a loud, angry voice, opening his door.
On reaching the third company he suddenly stopped.
"Now then, you devil's puppet, look alive and hunt for it!" shouted Denisov, suddenly, turning purple and rushing at the man with a threatening gesture.
Suddenly the strange sound of a far-off whistling and thud was heard, followed by a boom of cannon blending into a dull roar that set the windows rattling.
The flames now died down and were lost in the black smoke, now suddenly flared up again brightly, lighting up with strange distinctness the faces of the people crowding at the crossroads.

Bennigsen stopped speaking and, noticing that Pierre was listening, suddenly said to him:
Now he suddenly saw those badly daubed pictures in clear daylight and without a glass.
He could apparently not refrain from expressing the thoughts that had suddenly occurred to him.

Bennigsen suddenly reddened and paced angrily up and down the room.
About noon they stopped to allow Jim to rest in the shade of a pretty orchard.
The group of these queer creatures which was discovered clustered near the stairs at first remained staring and motionless, glaring with evil eyes at the intruders who had so suddenly appeared in their land.
Do you know of any person who was once poor but who has lately and suddenly become well-to-do?
The sun had been under a cloud all day, and there had been brief showers; but suddenly the sun broke forth in all its southern splendour.
The solemn nothings that fill our everyday life blossom suddenly into bright possibilities.
Then she dropped on the ground and asked for its name and pointed to the pump and the trellis, and suddenly turning round she asked for my name.
She went through these motions several times, mimicking every movement, then she stood very still for a moment with a troubled look on her face, which suddenly cleared, and she spelled, "Good Helen," and wreathed her face in a very large, artificial smile.
As he came in sight of the rose-bushes that grew near the side of the house, he suddenly clapped his hands, and with a little shout of joy stopped to look at them; they were all covered with lovely rosebuds.

The lieutenant was looking about in his usual way and suddenly seemed to grow very merry.
The wide expanse that opened out before the heights on which the Russian batteries stood guarding the bridge was at times veiled by a diaphanous curtain of slanting rain, and then, suddenly spread out in the sunlight, far-distant objects could be clearly seen glittering as though freshly varnished.
Looking down at the waters of the Enns under the bridge, Nesvitski suddenly heard a sound new to him, of something swiftly approaching... something big, that splashed into the water.
Suddenly on the road at the top of the high ground, artillery and troops in blue uniform were seen.
He stood looking about him, when suddenly he heard a rattle on the bridge as if nuts were being spilt, and the hussar nearest to him fell against the rails with a groan.
He looked straight at Prince Andrew and suddenly unwrinkled his forehead.
Prince Andrew suddenly exclaimed, clenching his small hand and striking the table with it, "and what luck the man has!"
"Where are you off to?" he said suddenly to Prince Andrew who had risen and was going toward his room.
His face suddenly softened and tears came into his eyes.
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.
"Quite avare, your excellency," suddenly shouted the colonel, touching his horse and turning purple in the face.
Suddenly something like a birch broom seemed to sweep over the squadron.
But at that moment the French who were attacking, suddenly and without any apparent reason, ran back and disappeared from the outskirts, and Russian sharpshooters showed themselves in the copse.
Good-bye, my dear fellow! and for some unknown reason tears suddenly filled his eyes.
Suddenly, near by on the right, shouting and firing were again heard.
Or he would suddenly feel ashamed of he knew not what.
Then it would suddenly seem to him that it was not she but he was so unusually beautiful, and that that was why they all looked so at him, and flattered by this general admiration he would expand his chest, raise his head, and rejoice at his good fortune.
Suddenly he heard a familiar voice repeating something to him a second time.
He suddenly muttered something and went away.
Then rising, he suddenly went up to his daughter.
Suddenly Prince Bolkonski frowned.
She was going straight on through the conservatory, neither seeing nor hearing anything, when suddenly the well-known whispering of Mademoiselle Bourienne aroused her.
Natasha suddenly asked, after a moment's silence.
"Yes, stories!" repeated Rostov loudly, looking with eyes suddenly grown furious, now at Boris, now at Bolkonski.
The Emperor! was suddenly heard among the hussars.
And suddenly, at this thought of death, a whole series of most distant, most intimate, memories rose in his imagination: he remembered his last parting from his father and his wife; he remembered the days when he first loved her.
Suddenly a distant shout aroused him.
His whole appearance and manner were suddenly transformed.
The expression on all their faces suddenly changed to one of horror.
The French were supposed to be a mile and a half away, but had suddenly and unexpectedly appeared just in front of us.
Suddenly he heard musket fire quite close in front of him and behind our troops, where he could never have expected the enemy to be.
And suddenly he was seized by a panic of fear for himself and for the issue of the whole battle.
The foreboding of evil that had suddenly come over Rostov was more and more confirmed the farther he rode into the region behind the village of Pratzen, which was full of troops of all kinds.
Suddenly a cannon ball hissed so low above the crowd that everyone ducked.
Go on! innumerable voices suddenly shouted after the ball had struck the general, the men themselves not knowing what, or why, they were shouting.
Suddenly he again felt that he was alive and suffering from a burning, lacerating pain in his head.
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.
He was already enjoying that happiness when that little Napoleon had suddenly appeared with his unsympathizing look of shortsighted delight at the misery of others, and doubts and torments had followed, and only the heavens promised peace.
He looked up at the opening door and his expression of sleepy indifference suddenly changed to one of delighted amazement.
But on entering Moscow he suddenly came to and, lifting his head with an effort, took Rostov, who was sitting beside him, by the hand.
Such a storm of feelings, thoughts, and memories suddenly arose within him that he could not fall asleep, nor even remain in one place, but had to jump up and pace the room with rapid steps.
But at the moment when he imagined himself calmed by such reflections, she suddenly came into his mind as she was at the moments when he had most strongly expressed his insincere love for her, and he felt the blood rush to his heart and had again to get up and move about and break and tear whatever came to his hand.
"Ah, Princess Mary!" he said suddenly in an unnatural voice, throwing down his chisel.
She looked at Princess Mary, then sat thinking for a while with that expression of attention to something within her that is only seen in pregnant women, and suddenly began to cry.
Suddenly her door opened softly and her old nurse, Praskovya Savishna, who hardly ever came to that room as the old prince had forbidden it, appeared on the threshold with a shawl round her head.
Then suddenly a terrible shriek--it could not be hers, she could not scream like that--came from the bedroom.
He glided silently on one foot half across the room, and seeming not to notice the chairs was dashing straight at them, when suddenly, clinking his spurs and spreading out his legs, he stopped short on his heels, stood so a second, stamped on the spot clanking his spurs, whirled rapidly round, and, striking his left heel against his right, flew round again in a circle.
First he spun her round, holding her now with his left, now with his right hand, then falling on one knee he twirled her round him, and again jumping up, dashed so impetuously forward that it seemed as if he would rush through the whole suite of rooms without drawing breath, and then he suddenly stopped and performed some new and unexpected steps.
And suddenly the whole world centered for him on anticipation of the next note, the next phrase, and everything in the world was divided into three beats: "Oh mio crudele affetto."...
And suddenly, in the most casual tone, which made him feel ashamed of himself, he said, as if merely asking his father to let him have the carriage to drive to town:
Nonsense! cried the count, suddenly reddening with an apoplectic flush over neck and nape as old people do.
And he suddenly smiled, in an unexpected and tenderly paternal way.
Pierre, perplexed, looked round with his shortsighted eyes without obeying, and suddenly doubts arose in his mind.
He was joyfully planning this new life, when Prince Vasili suddenly entered the room.
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.
Suddenly he thought he heard a strange noise through the door.
Pierre went with rapid steps to the door and suddenly came face to face with Prince Andrew, who came out frowning and looking old.
Pierre suddenly began, lowering his head and looking like a bull about to charge, why do you think so?
Pelageya suddenly grew quite pale and clasped her hands.
And you who have a son! she began, her pallor suddenly turning to a vivid red.
Suddenly he heard Denisov shouting in a vibrating voice behind the hut, evidently much excited.
"Now, what are you pestewing me for?" cried Denisov, suddenly losing his temper.
Rostov, in common with the whole army from which he came, was far from having experienced the change of feeling toward Napoleon and the French- -who from being foes had suddenly become friends--that had taken place at headquarters and in Boris.
As soon as he noticed a French officer, who thrust his head out of the door, that warlike feeling of hostility which he always experienced at the sight of the enemy suddenly seized him.
And suddenly with a determination he himself did not expect, Rostov felt for the letter in his pocket and went straight to the house.
"How can you judge what's best?" he cried, the blood suddenly rushing to his face.
Suddenly, he did not know why, he felt a pang.
What does it mean? she suddenly exclaimed.
In his soul there suddenly arose such an unexpected turmoil of youthful thoughts and hopes, contrary to the whole tenor of his life, that unable to explain his condition to himself he lay down and fell asleep at once.
All the best moments of his life suddenly rose to his memory.
Prince Andrew suddenly decided finally and decisively.
Then suddenly the grating sound of a harsh voice was heard from the other side of the door, and the officer--with pale face and trembling lips--came out and passed through the waiting room, clutching his head.
I dreamed that I was walking in the dark and was suddenly surrounded by dogs, but I went on undismayed.
Suddenly a smallish dog seized my left thigh with its teeth and would not let go.
And suddenly Brother A. came and, taking my arm, led me to a building to enter which we had to pass along a narrow plank.
It seemed as if I chattered incessantly with other people and suddenly remembered that this could not please him, and I wished to come close to him and embrace him.
But I replied that I should be ashamed to do it, and suddenly everything vanished.
And suddenly I saw him lying like a dead body; then he gradually recovered and went with me into my study carrying a large book of sheets of drawing paper; I said, "I drew that," and he answered by bowing his head.
Suddenly everybody stirred, began talking, and pressed forward and then back, and between the two rows, which separated, the Emperor entered to the sounds of music that had immediately struck up.
That tremulous expression on Natasha's face, prepared either for despair or rapture, suddenly brightened into a happy, grateful, childlike smile.
And this simple reflection suddenly destroyed all the interest Prince Andrew had felt in the impending reforms.
Everything that had formerly appeared mysterious and fascinating in Speranski suddenly became plain and unattractive.
In the midst of a phrase he ceased speaking and suddenly felt tears choking him, a thing he had thought impossible for him.
"Oh, there was childish love?" suddenly asked Prince Andrew, blushing unexpectedly.
Suddenly Pierre heaved a deep sigh and dumped his heavy person down on the sofa beside Prince Andrew.
What did I tell you? said Pierre suddenly, rising and beginning to pace up and down the room.
Once she came to her mother, tried to say something, and suddenly began to cry.
The countess began to soothe Natasha, who after first listening to her mother's words, suddenly interrupted her:
Natasha repeated suddenly, only now realizing that the marriage was to be postponed for a year.
Natasha suddenly cried, and again burst into sobs.
I'll do anything! she said, suddenly checking her tears.
But a fortnight after his departure, to the surprise of those around her, she recovered from her mental sickness just as suddenly and became her old self again, but with a change in her moral physiognomy, as a child gets up after a long illness with a changed expression of face.
Once, when in a room with a lamp dimly lit before the icon Theodosia was talking of her life, the thought that Theodosia alone had found the true path of life suddenly came to Princess Mary with such force that she resolved to become a pilgrim herself.
Milka, a black-spotted, broad-haunched bitch with prominent black eyes, got up on seeing her master, stretched her hind legs, lay down like a hare, and then suddenly jumped up and licked him right on his nose and mustache.
Then, unexpectedly, as often happens, the sound of the hunt suddenly approached, as if the hounds in full cry and Daniel ulyulyuing were just in front of them.
Suddenly the wolf's whole physiognomy changed: she shuddered, seeing what she had probably never seen before--human eyes fixed upon her--and turning her head a little toward Rostov, she paused.
Nearer and nearer... now she was ahead of it; but the wolf turned its head to face her, and instead of putting on speed as she usually did Milka suddenly raised her tail and stiffened her forelegs.
But here Nicholas only saw that something happened to Karay--the borzoi was suddenly on the wolf, and they rolled together down into a gully just in front of them.
With his hand on his saddlebow, he was ready to dismount and stab the wolf, when she suddenly thrust her head up from among that mass of dogs, and then her forepaws were on the edge of the gully.
Now they drew close to the fox which began to dodge between the field in sharper and sharper curves, trailing its brush, when suddenly a strange white borzoi dashed in followed by a black one, and everything was in confusion; the borzois formed a star-shaped figure, scarcely swaying their bodies and with tails turned away from the center of the group.
"He doesn't play that part right!" said "Uncle" suddenly, with an energetic gesture.
Where is he now? she thought, and her face suddenly became serious.
Yes, first I thought that we are driving along and imagining that we are going home, but that heaven knows where we are really going in the darkness, and that we shall arrive and suddenly find that we are not in Otradnoe, but in Fairyland.
Once in the regiment I had not gone to some merrymaking where there was music... and suddenly I felt so depressed...
And do you remember how we rolled hard-boiled eggs in the ballroom, and suddenly two old women began spinning round on the carpet?
After sitting a while, she suddenly hears someone coming... a sleigh drives up with harness bells; she hears him coming!
"Have you told her?" asked Natasha, suddenly beaming all over with joy.
"Of course she will!" whispered Natasha, but did not finish... suddenly Sonya pushed away the glass she was holding and covered her eyes with her hand.
And this life suddenly seemed to Pierre unexpectedly loathsome.
She was surrounded by young men who, she fancied, had suddenly learned to appreciate her worth.
After dinner, when the footman handed coffee and from habit began with the princess, the prince suddenly grew furious, threw his stick at Philip, and instantly gave instructions to have him conscripted for the army.
"Oh, my God, Count, there are moments when I would marry anybody!" she cried suddenly to her own surprise and with tears in her voice.
Her irritability had suddenly quite vanished, and her anxious, imploring eyes were fixed on him with greedy expectation.
Natasha suddenly shrank into herself and involuntarily assumed an offhand air which alienated Princess Mary still more.
A sensation she had not experienced for a long time--that of hundreds of eyes looking at her bare arms and neck--suddenly affected her both agreeably and disagreeably and called up a whole crowd of memories, desires and emotions associated with that feeling.
But suddenly a storm came on, chromatic scales and diminished sevenths were heard in the orchestra, everyone ran off, again dragging one of their number away, and the curtain dropped.
"And do you know, Countess," he said, suddenly addressing her as an old, familiar acquaintance, "we are getting up a costume tournament; you ought to take part in it!
Only after she had reached home was Natasha able clearly to think over what had happened to her, and suddenly remembering Prince Andrew she was horrified, and at tea to which all had sat down after the opera, she gave a loud exclamation, flushed, and ran out of the room.
Then suddenly it became clear to Sonya that Natasha had some dreadful plan for that evening.
Don't make jokes! cried Anatole, suddenly rolling his eyes.
"We won't speak of it any more, my dear," said Pierre, and his gentle, cordial tone suddenly seemed very strange to Natasha.
"Ah, he has passed judgment... passed judgement!" said the old man in a low voice and, as it seemed to Prince Andrew, with some embarrassment, but then he suddenly jumped up and cried: "Be off, be off!
But when Volkonski said, with a frown, that it was in the Emperor's name that he asked his opinion, Pfuel rose and, suddenly growing animated, began to speak:
They had hardly begun to play before the doctor's disheveled head suddenly appeared from behind Mary Hendrikhovna.
Tears suddenly rose in her eyes, she turned away, lifted her music before her eyes, began singing again, and again began walking up and down the room.
Natasha began resolutely and suddenly stopped.
For a while the crowd was less dense, but suddenly all heads were bared, and everyone rushed forward in one direction.
But in spite of this he continued to struggle desperately forward, and from between the backs of those in front he caught glimpses of an open space with a strip of red cloth spread out on it; but just then the crowd swayed back--the police in front were pushing back those who had pressed too close to the procession: the Emperor was passing from the palace to the Cathedral of the Assumption--and Petya unexpectedly received such a blow on his side and ribs and was squeezed so hard that suddenly everything grew dim before his eyes and he lost consciousness.
Several people were sorry for Petya, and suddenly a crowd turned toward him and pressed round him.
Suddenly the sound of a firing of cannon was heard from the embankment, to celebrate the signing of peace with the Turks, and the crowd rushed impetuously toward the embankment to watch the firing.
Pierre suddenly saw an outlet for his excitement.
On seeing the soldiers he was about to shout at them, but suddenly stopped and, clutching at his hair, burst into sobs and laughter:
All his loquacity was suddenly arrested and replaced by a naive and silent feeling of admiration.
When she had taken leave of him and remained alone she suddenly felt her eyes filling with tears, and then not for the first time the strange question presented itself to her: did she love him?
"No!" he suddenly said to Berthier.
"Go away..." exclaimed Napoleon suddenly and morosely, and turned aside.
Napoleon was experiencing a feeling of depression like that of an ever- lucky gambler who, after recklessly flinging money about and always winning, suddenly just when he has calculated all the chances of the game, finds that the more he considers his play the more surely he loses.
Another time, general attention was attracted by a small brown dog, coming heaven knows whence, which trotted in a preoccupied manner in front of the ranks with tail stiffly erect till suddenly a shell fell close by, when it yelped, tucked its tail between its legs, and darted aside.
And suddenly a new unexpected memory from that realm of pure and loving childhood presented itself to him.
"And who may you be?" one of them suddenly asked Pierre, evidently meaning what Pierre himself had in mind, namely: "If you want to eat we'll give you some food, only let us know whether you are an honest man."
Scarcely had Pierre laid his head on the pillow before he felt himself falling asleep, but suddenly, almost with the distinctness of reality, he heard the boom, boom, boom of firing, the thud of projectiles, groans and cries, and smelled blood and powder, and a feeling of horror and dread of death seized him.
It was felt that everything would suddenly break up and change, but up to the first of September nothing had done so.
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.
The officer came nearer and suddenly his face flushed crimson.
"I consider," Natasha suddenly almost shouted, turning her angry face to Petya, "I consider it so horrid, so abominable, so...
Suddenly he sniffed and put his face closer to the window.
When he was informed that among others awaiting him in his reception room there was a Frenchman who had brought a letter from his wife, the Countess Helene, he felt suddenly overcome by that sense of confusion and hopelessness to which he was apt to succumb.
But no, it can't be true that I am in Moscow, he suddenly thought.
"Isn't it fine, eh, Uncle Ignat?" said the boy, suddenly beginning to strike the keyboard with both hands.
"Murderer!" he shouted suddenly to the publican.
He'll explain... voices in the rear of the crowd were suddenly heard saying, and the general attention turned to the police superintendent's trap which drove into the square attended by two mounted dragoons.
The ship moves independently with its own enormous motion, the boat hook no longer reaches the moving vessel, and suddenly the administrator, instead of appearing a ruler and a source of power, becomes an insignificant, useless, feeble man.
A vein in the young man's long thin neck swelled like a cord and went blue behind the ear, and suddenly his face flushed.
I command it... shouted Rostopchin, suddenly growing pale like Vereshchagin.
At the moment when Vereshchagin fell and the crowd closed in with savage yells and swayed about him, Rostopchin suddenly turned pale and, instead of going to the back entrance where his carriage awaited him, went with hurried steps and bent head, not knowing where and why, along the passage leading to the rooms on the ground floor.
One God is above us both!--Vereshchagin's words suddenly recurred to him, and a disagreeable shiver ran down his back.
Count Rostopchin suddenly grew pale as he had done when the crowd closed in on Vereshchagin.
But when he returned to the house convinced that Moscow would not be defended, he suddenly felt that what before had seemed to him merely a possibility had now become absolutely necessary and inevitable.
Pierre had first experienced this strange and fascinating feeling at the Sloboda Palace, when he had suddenly felt that wealth, power, and life--all that men so painstakingly acquire and guard--if it has any worth has so only by reason of the joy with which it can all be renounced.
He paused and then suddenly seeing the pistol on the table seized it with unexpected rapidity and ran out into the corridor.
Suddenly a fresh sound, a piercing feminine scream, reverberated from the porch and the cook came running into the vestibule.
The Frenchman listened in silence with the same gloomy expression, but suddenly turned to Pierre with a smile.
"The Emperor," Pierre repeated, and his face suddenly became sad and embarrassed, "is the Emperor...?"
When the captain went out and he was left alone, suddenly he came to himself and realized the position he was in.
"The colonel of those Wurttembergers is delightful," he suddenly said.
The captain gazed intently at him as he had done when he learned that "shelter" was Unterkunft in German, and his face suddenly brightened.
And suddenly remembering his intention he grew dizzy and felt so faint that he leaned against the fence to save himself from falling.
And suddenly the sequence of these thoughts broke off, and Prince Andrew heard (without knowing whether it was a delusion or reality) a soft whispering voice incessantly and rhythmically repeating "piti-piti- piti," and then "titi," and then again "piti-piti-piti," and "ti-ti" once more.
And suddenly thoughts and feelings again swam to the surface of his mind with peculiar clearness and force.
And his attention was suddenly carried into another world, a world of reality and delirium in which something particular was happening.
Prince Andrew collected all his strength in an effort to recover his senses, he moved a little, and suddenly there was a ringing in his ears, a dimness in his eyes, and like a man plunged into water he lost consciousness.
As he was going along a foot path across a wide- open space adjoining the Povarskoy on one side and the gardens of Prince Gruzinski's house on the other, Pierre suddenly heard the desperate weeping of a woman close to him.
It had a peculiarly strong effect on him because at the sight of the fire he felt himself suddenly freed from the ideas that had weighed him down.
Pierre suddenly replied in French.
"Have they surrendered my ancient capital without a battle?" asked the Emperor quickly, his face suddenly flushing.
He suddenly frowned, as if blaming himself for his weakness, and raising his head addressed Michaud in a firm voice:
Nicholas suddenly felt a desire and need to tell his most intimate thoughts (which he would not have told to his mother, his sister, or his friend) to this woman who was almost a stranger.
From the time Rostov entered, her face became suddenly transformed.
Why don't I pray for what I want? he suddenly thought.
Neither he nor she said a word about what "Natasha nursing him" might mean, but thanks to this letter Nicholas suddenly became almost as intimate with the princess as if they were relations.
Sonya suddenly almost screamed, catching her companion's arm and stepping back from the door.
"No, monseigneur," he said, suddenly remembering that Davout was a duke.
When they got him to the post he grew quiet, as if he suddenly understood something.
