What many children think of with dread, as a painful plodding through grammar, hard sums and harder definitions, is to-day one of my most precious memories.

Something I said made her think she detected in my words a confession that I did remember Miss Canby's story of "The Frost Fairies," and she laid her conclusions before Mr. Anagnos, although I had told her most emphatically that she was mistaken.
In the savage state every family owns a shelter as good as the best, and sufficient for its coarser and simpler wants; but I think that I speak within bounds when I say that, though the birds of the air have their nests, and the foxes their holes, and the savages their wigwams, in modern civilized society not more than one half the families own a shelter.
What do you think of it, Prince?
Is it possible to plan or think of anything now?

Think about that: Poverty in the United States is defined as higher than the average income of the planet.
I do not think so.
So think about this.
But think of it this way: Before, you made $33,000 and paid 40 percent in taxes, so you were left with $20,000 in take-home pay.
Let's think about that for a moment.
First, think of the concept of interest.
I describe these three situations because each, in its own way, illustrates how I think the future will play out regarding income and wealth.
I think that incomes will rise dramatically to many times what they presently are, in real dollars.
I think most people around the world will seek personal excellence.

I personally think the establishment of charitable organizations was driven by the same spirit that drove the creation of new businesses.
Why are people so quick to vilify those on the "other side" of the issue—and why do we even think in terms of sides?
I am not only what I eat but am also what I do, what I drink, what I think about, and more.

Think of how a few thousand years of human civilization got us to a certain amount of computational power.
I think the future I describe is pretty secure.
I think the range of problems that technology can solve is confined to technological problems.
However, I don't think finding these solutions means an end to all our troubles.

I think the technological leap beyond the next one will take us to the stars.
I think we will learn to conquer distance though a method of which we cannot yet conceive.
But the rumble of the machinery made me think it was thundering, and I began to cry, because I feared if it rained we should not be able to have our picnic out of doors.

Do you think the lovely moon was glad that I could speak to her?
I think you are very kind and patient, and I love you very dearly.
I think it is so pleasant to make everybody happy.
Why does the dear Father in heaven think it best for us to have very great sorrow sometimes?
I can almost think I see you with your father and mother and little sister, with all the brightness of the beautiful country about you, and it makes me very glad to know how glad you are.
We like to think that the sunshine and the winds and the trees are able to love in some way of their own, for it would make us know that they were happy if we knew that they could love.
But do you not think that God is happy too because you are happy?
All this is what you are to think of and to understand more and more as you grow older.
Think of it now, and let it make every blessing brighter because your dear Father sends it to you.
It almost makes me think the world would get along as well without seeing and hearing as with them.
Just think of an army of blind people, with guns and cannon!
Think of the poor drummers!
Then think how much kindness you are sure of as long as you live.

It makes me think that all people are good and loving.
It is very beautiful to think that people far away in England feel sorry for a little helpless child in America.
I used to think, when I read in my books about your great city, that when I visited it the people would be strangers to me, but now I feel differently.
I think you will like them too, so I will try to write them for you.
Please think of me always as your loving little sister, HELEN KELLER.
It is very beautiful to think that you can tell so many people of the heavenly Father's tender love for all His children even when they are not gentle and noble as He wishes them to be.

Please let me know what you think about the house, and try to forgive me for troubling you so much.

My little brother, Phillips, is not well, and we think the clear mountain air will benefit him.
I have loved you for a long time, but I did not think you had ever heard of me until your sweet message came.
But when the bright, pleasant autumn days came, and I felt strong again I began to think about the sketch.
I often think of the pleasant time we had all together in Boston last spring.
I do try to think that he is still near, very near; but sometimes the thought that he is not here, that I shall not see him when I go to Boston,--that he is gone,--rushes over my soul like a great wave of sorrow.
But I do not think so.
I do not know what books we have, but I think it is a miscellaneous (I think that is the word) collection....
We are all discoverers in one sense, being born quite ignorant of all things; but I hardly think that is what she meant.
Think what a joy it would be to all of my friends to hear me speak naturally!!
...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.
I think he is very handsome indeed....
We think of you so, so often! and our hearts go out to you in tenderest sympathy; and you know better than this poor letter can tell you how happy we always are to have you with us!
They were the entrance examinations for Harvard College; so I feel pleased to think I could pass them.
I think you remember Mr. Chamberlin, the "Listener" in the Boston Transcript.
I do think I could work all day long without feeling tired if they would let me.
Just think, I shall soon finish my grammar!
I think Greek is the loveliest language that I know anything about.
I find I get on faster, and do better work with Mr. Keith than I did in the classes at the Cambridge School, and I think it was well that I gave up that kind of work.
My teacher and other friends think I could ride a Columbia tandem in the country with perfect safety.
They also think your suggestion about a fixed handlebar a good one.
I ride with a divided skirt, and so does my teacher; but it would be easier for her to mount a man's wheel than for me; so, if it could be arranged to have the ladies' seat behind, I think it would be better....
You will think I'm pining away for my beloved Wrentham, which is true in one sense and not in another.
I think Mr. Keith is a wonderful teacher, and I feel very grateful to him for having made me see the beauty of Mathematics.
As to the two-handed alphabet, I think it is much easier for those who have sight than the manual alphabet; for most of the letters look like the large capitals in books; but I think when it comes to teaching a deaf-blind person to spell, the manual alphabet is much more convenient, and less conspicuous....
My teacher's eyes are no better: indeed, I think they grow more troublesome, though she is very brave and patient, and will not give up.
I have just had some pictures taken, and if they are good, I would like to send one to Mr. Rogers, if you think he would like to have it.
I would like so much to show him in some way how deeply I appreciate all that he is doing for me, and I cannot think of anything better to do.
I think I shall enjoy the "Odyssey" most of all.
She has not had a vacation for twelve years, think of it, and all that time she has been the sunshine of my life.
Now her eyes are troubling her a great deal, and we all think she ought to be relieved, for a while, of every care and responsibility.
Well, I must confess, I do not like the sign-language, and I do not think it would be of much use to the deaf-blind.
Just think, she cannot use the manual alphabet!
But you must not think I blame any one.
Why, you yourself seem to think that I taught you American braille, when you do not know a single letter in the system!
The waist is trimmed with pink and green brocaded velvet, and white lace, I think, and has double reefers on the front, tucked and trimmed with velvet, and also a row of tiny white buttons.
I do not think I have told you that my dear teacher is reading "The Faery Queen" to me.
My friends think it very strange that they should hesitate so long, especially when I have not asked them to simplify my work in the least, but only to modify it so as to meet the existing circumstances.
Do tell me what you think about Dr. Bell's suggestion.
Tell me truly, do you think me as bad as that?
The dear, sweet little girl, it makes my heart ache to think how utterly she is cut off from all that is good and desirable in life.
Please do not think either of these very unpleasant thoughts.
When a psychologist asked her if Miss Keller spelled on her fingers in her sleep, Miss Sullivan replied that she did not think it worth while to sit up and watch, such matters were of so little consequence.
They are, I think, the only ones of their kind in America.
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.'
In the diary that she kept at the Wright-Humason School in New York she wrote on October 18, 1894, "I find that I have four things to learn in my school life here, and indeed, in life--to think clearly without hurry or confusion, to love everybody sincerely, to act in everything with the highest motives, and to trust in dear God unhesitatingly."
I had a lot to say, and couldn't stop to think how to express things neatly.
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.
I don't think she has any special tenderness for them--I have never seen her caress them; but she dresses and undresses them many times during the day and handles them exactly as she has seen her mother and the nurse handle her baby sister.
I think, however, she will learn quickly enough by and by.
I think "no" and "yes," conveyed by a shake or a nod of my head, have become facts as apparent to her as hot and cold or as the difference between pain and pleasure.
I think she wanted to see what would happen.
I think she understood perfectly well; for she slapped her hand two or three times and shook her head.
Helen's instincts are decidedly social; she likes to have people about her and to visit her friends, partly, I think, because they always have things she likes to eat.
In a previous letter I think I wrote you that "mug" and "milk" had given Helen more trouble than all the rest.
Whereas, if the child is left to himself, he will think more and better, if less showily.
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."
I think I shall find them helpful.
Please give my kind regards to Mr. Anagnos and let him see my letter, if you think best.
Helen is about the same--pale and thin; but you mustn't think she is really ill.
But so far nobody seems to have thought of chloroforming her, which is, I think, the only effective way of stopping the natural exercise of her faculties.
It gives her something to do, and keeps her quiet, which I think is desirable while this enervating weather lasts.
But in this case I don't think I made a mistake.
She was much pleased with the letter, and after she had asked all the questions she could think of, she took it to her mother, who was sewing in the hall, and read it to her.
"What colour is think?" was one of the restful questions she asked, as we swung to and fro in the hammock.
Quick as a flash she said, "My think is white, Viney's think is black."
She likes stories that make her cry--I think we all do, it's so nice to feel sad when you've nothing particular to be sad about.
I think, too, that they quicken all the child's faculties, because they stimulate the imagination.
I do not think anyone can read, or talk for that matter, until he forgets words and sentences in the technical sense.
What would happen, do you think, if some one should try to measure our intelligence by our ability to define the commonest words we use?
When I told her that Santa Claus would not come until she was asleep, she shut her eyes and said, "He will think girl is asleep."
In a flash she answered, "I think Uncle Frank is much (too) old to read very small letters."
Helen was petted and caressed enough to spoil an angel; but I do not think it is possible to spoil her, she is too unconscious of herself, and too loving.
She seemed to think at first that the children all belonged to the visiting ministers; but soon she recognized some little friends among them, and I told her the ministers didn't bring their children with them.
I think Mrs. Keller has definitely decided to go with us, but she will not stay all summer.
I think it is her joyous interest in everything and everybody.
Then she added: I think she is very dead.
I said to her, "Tell me, when you have read the poem through, who you think the mother is."
She even enters into the spirit of battle; she says, "I think it is right for men to fight against wrongs and tyrants."
If I suggest her leaving a problem in arithmetic until the next day, she answers, "I think it will make my mind stronger to do it now."
You must remember, dear teacher, that Greek parents were very particular with their children, and they used to let them listen to wise words, and I think they understood some of them.
She shook her head decidedly, and said: My enemies would think I was running away.
After a moment she went on: A. says God is everywhere, and that He is all love; but I do not think a person can be made out of love.
"She sends the sunshine and rain to make them grow," Helen replied; and after a moment she added, "I think the sunshine is Nature's warm smile, and the raindrops are her tears."
I think my mother got me from heaven, but I do not know where that place is.
The daisies and the pansies will think I have forgotten them.
I told her that God was everywhere, and that she must not think of Him as a person, but as the life, the mind, the soul of everything.
I then asked her, "Can you think of your soul as separate from your body?"
At another time she asked, "Do you not think we would be very much happier always, if we did not have to die?"
"But," said Helen, quickly, "I think God could make some more worlds as well as He made this one."
When her friend added that some of the pupils he had seen in Budapest had more than one hundred tunes in their heads, she said, laughing, "I think their heads must be very noisy."
She does not think of one wrong act as harmless, of another as of no consequence, and of another as not intended.
Too often, I think, children are required to write before they have anything to say.
Teach them to think and read and talk without self-repression, and they will write because they cannot help it.
It may be true, as some maintain, that language cannot express to us much beyond what we have lived and experienced; but I have always observed that children manifest the greatest delight in the lofty, poetic language which we are too ready to think beyond their comprehension.
Reading, I think, should be kept independent of the regular school exercises.
It would, I think, be hard to make her feel just how to pronounce DICTIONARY without her erring either toward DICTIONAYRY or DICTION'RY, and, of course the word is neither one nor the other.
The only signs which I think she may have invented were her signs for SMALL and LARGE.
If you knew all the joy I feel in being able to speak to you to-day, I think you would have some idea of the value of speech to the deaf, and you would understand why I want every little deaf child in all this great world to have an opportunity to learn to speak.
Do not think of to-days failures, but of the success that may come to-morrow.
On the other hand, the peculiar value to her of language, which ordinary people take for granted as a necessary part of them like their right hand, made her think about language and love it.
In one of his letters, speaking of how God in every way tells us of His love, he says, "I think he writes it even upon the walls of the great house of nature which we live in, that he is our Father."
No one shall be allowed to think it was anything wrong; and some day she will write a great, beautiful story or poem that will make many people happy.
And what do you think he did next!
He stood still a moment to look about him, and think what he should do first.
Well, one day King Frost was trying to think of some good that he could do with his treasure; and suddenly he concluded to send some of it to his kind neighbour, Santa Claus, to buy presents of food and clothing for the poor, that they might not suffer so much when King Winter went near their homes.
I will tell you how King Frost happened to think of painting the leaves, for it is a strange story.
To be sure, I take the keenest interest in everything that concerns those who surround me; it is this very interest which makes it so difficult for me to carry on a conversation with some people who will not talk or say what they think, but I should not be sorry to find more friends ready to talk with me now and then about the wonderful things I read.
I rarely have dreams that are not in keeping with what I really think and feel, but one night my very nature seemed to change, and I stood in the eye of the world a mighty man and a terrible.
Yet they honestly think there is no choice left.
I think that it would be better than this, for the students, or those who desire to be benefited by it, even to lay the foundation themselves.
I do not mean that exactly, but I mean something which he might think a good deal like that; I mean that they should not play life, or study it merely, while the community supports them at this expensive game, but earnestly live it from beginning to end.
And so, if the railroad reached round the world, I think that I should keep ahead of you; and as for seeing the country and getting experience of that kind, I should have to cut your acquaintance altogether.
I think that the man is at a dead set who has got through a knot-hole or gateway where his sledge load of furniture cannot follow him.
Many think that seeds improve with age.
I think I shall not buy greedily, but go round and round it as long as I live, and be buried in it first, that it may please me the more at last.
What should we think of the shepherd's life if his flocks always wandered to higher pastures than his thoughts?
Did you ever think what those sleepers are that underlie the railroad?
I think that there are very few important communications made through it.
Children, who play life, discern its true law and relations more clearly than men, who fail to live it worthily, but who think that they are wiser by experience, that is, by failure.
We think that that is which appears to be.
If a man should walk through this town and see only the reality, where, think you, would the "Mill-dam" go to?
I think that the richest vein is somewhere hereabouts; so by the divining-rod and thin rising vapors I judge; and here I will begin to mine.
Do they not talk and think faster in the depot than they did in the stage-office?
To walk in a winter morning in a wood where these birds abounded, their native woods, and hear the wild cockerels crow on the trees, clear and shrill for miles over the resounding earth, drowning the feebler notes of other birds--think of it!
Men frequently say to me, "I should think you would feel lonesome down there, and want to be nearer to folks, rainy and snowy days and nights especially."
How far apart, think you, dwell the two most distant inhabitants of yonder star, the breadth of whose disk cannot be appreciated by our instruments?
I think I shall never revisit those scenes.
They had nothing to eat themselves, and they were wiser than to think that apologies could supply the place of food to their guests; so they drew their belts tighter and said nothing about it.
Such an exuberance of animal spirits had he that he sometimes tumbled down and rolled on the ground with laughter at anything which made him think and tickled him.
May be the man you hoe with is inclined to race; then, by gorry, your mind must be there; you think of weeds.
Some think it is bottomless.
For four months in the year its water is as cold as it is pure at all times; and I think that it is then as good as any, if not the best, in the town.
Commonly they did not think that they were lucky, or well paid for their time, unless they got a long string of fish, though they had the opportunity of seeing the pond all the while.
I think that I do not mistake.
I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man; wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea!
Who would live there where a body can never think for the barking of Bose?
I think that I am near the end of it.
I think that I may warrant you one worm to every three sods you turn up, if you look well in among the roots of the grass, as if you were weeding.
When they make us an offer, is it wise to say, We will think of it?
The more you think of it, the less the difference.
Little did the dusky children think that the puny slip with its two eyes only, which they stuck in the ground in the shadow of the house and daily watered, would root itself so, and outlive them, and house itself in the rear that shaded it, and grown man's garden and orchard, and tell their story faintly to the lone wanderer a half-century after they had grown up and died--blossoming as fair, and smelling as sweet, as in that first spring.
I think that he must be the man of the most faith of any alive.
When I crossed Flint's Pond, after it was covered with snow, though I had often paddled about and skated over it, it was so unexpectedly wide and so strange that I could think of nothing but Baffin's Bay.
It was a small cavity under ten feet of water; but I think that I can warrant the pond not to need soldering till they find a worse leak than that.
Men seeing the nature of this man like that of the brute, think that he has never possessed the innate faculty of reason.
Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction--a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse.
We think that we can change our clothes only.
I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward.
I cast my vote, perchance, as I think right; but I am not vitally concerned that that right should prevail.
Men generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them.
They think that, if they should resist, the remedy would be worse than the evil.
One would think, that a deliberate and practical denial of its authority was the only offence never contemplated by government; else, why has it not assigned its definite, its suitable and proportionate, penalty?
I think that it is enough if they have God on their side, without waiting for that other one.
For my own part, I should not like to think that I ever rely on the protection of the State.
But I think, again, This is no reason why I should do as they do, or permit others to suffer much greater pain of a different kind.
"And what do you think of this latest comedy, the coronation at Milan?" asked Anna Pavlovna, "and of the comedy of the people of Genoa and Lucca laying their petitions before Monsieur Buonaparte, and Monsieur Buonaparte sitting on a throne and granting the petitions of the nations?
And to think it is Cyril Vladimirovich Bezukhov's son who amuses himself in this sensible manner!
This Buonaparte has turned all their heads; they all think of how he rose from an ensign and became Emperor.
"I should think not," said Vera, "because there can never be anything wrong in my behavior.
I don't mind what they think of me.
"I often think, though, perhaps it's a sin," said the princess, "that here lives Count Cyril Vladimirovich Bezukhov so rich, all alone... that tremendous fortune... and what is his life worth?
Let people think what they will of me, it's really all the same to me when my son's fate is at stake.
And what do you think of the Boulogne expedition?
I think the expedition is quite feasible.
You might think that I...
"And so you think Napoleon will manage to get an army across?" asked Boris with a smile.
I can't think why his nieces put it off.
Then just think what can be done with two hundred and thirty rubles!
It was just the moment before a big dinner when the assembled guests, expecting the summons to zakuska, * avoid engaging in any long conversation but think it necessary to move about and talk, in order to show that they are not at all impatient for their food.
Do you think the French are here?
Do you think so?...
"Do you think he can last till morning?" asked the German, addressing Lorrain in French which he pronounced badly.
"And I?" he said; "do you think it is easier for me?
One must think of the future, of all of you...
I know, I know how hard it is for you to talk or think of such matters.
The princess smiled as people do who think they know more about the subject under discussion than those they are talking with.
Rousing himself, Pierre followed Anna Mikhaylovna out of the carriage, and only then began to think of the interview with his dying father which awaited him.
Think that he is your father... perhaps in the agony of death.
I think he will not be out of place in a family consultation; is it not so, Prince?
I don't know what you will think of it, but I consider it my duty to let you know of it.
"You think I'm an old man and don't understand the present state of affairs?" concluded his father.
Prince Andrew smiled as he looked at his sister, as we smile at those we think we thoroughly understand.
"You live in the country and don't think the life terrible," he replied.
But think, Andrew: for a young society woman to be buried in the country during the best years of her life, all alone--for Papa is always busy, and I... well, you know what poor resources I have for entertaining a woman used to the best society.
"He always was rather harsh; and now I should think he's getting very trying," said Prince Andrew, apparently speaking lightly of their father in order to puzzle or test his sister.
Think what you please!
Think as you please, but do this for my sake!
I do not think I have complained of my wife to you, Masha, or blamed her.
However, I think the regiment is not a bad one, eh?
He now looked like a man who has time to think of the impression he makes on others, but is occupied with agreeable and interesting work.
You're wrong to think that of me...
He just sends a ball and they think they'll all be killed, a sergeant was saying angrily and reproachfully.
Rostov did not think what this call for stretchers meant; he ran on, trying only to be ahead of the others; but just at the bridge, not looking at the ground, he came on some sticky, trodden mud, stumbled, and fell on his hands.
"Away from the smell of powder, they probably think it easy to gain victories!" he thought.
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.
Well, I think it is.
The bigwigs here think so too, but they daren't say so.
"But joking apart," said Prince Andrew, "do you really think the campaign is over?"
I know you think it your duty to gallop back to the army now that it is in danger.
One would think that as an artillery officer you would set a good example, yet here you are without your boots!
"I think I sent you?" he added, turning to the staff officer on duty.
Still less did he think of injuring anyone for his own advantage.
Don't you think so?
He had often begun to make reflections or think aloud in her company, and she had always answered him either by a brief but appropriate remark--showing that it did not interest her--or by a silent look and smile which more palpably than anything else showed Pierre her superiority.
"How can one talk or think of such trifles?" thought Pierre.
"I think I may congratulate you," whispered Anna Pavlovna to the old princess, kissing her soundly.
I'll teach you to think! and lifting his stick he swung it and would have hit Alpatych, the overseer, had not the latter instinctively avoided the blow.
She thought: "If I seem not to notice he will think that I do not sympathize with him; if I seem sad and out of spirits myself, he will say (as he has done before) that I'm in the dumps."
Perhaps he did not really think this when he met women--even probably he did not, for in general he thought very little--but his looks and manner gave that impression.
"Well, do you think I shall prevent her, that I can't part from her?" said the old prince angrily.
I try to be reserved because in the depth of my soul I feel too near to him already, but then he cannot know what I think of him and may imagine that I do not like him.
"I do not know what you think, Father," whispered the princess.
Go to your room, think it over, and come back in an hour and tell me in his presence: yes or no.
Well, pray if you like, but you had better think it over.
I think if he writes, I will write too, she said, blushing.
I did not think he would get it to you so quickly....
And what do you think, Count?
Only when Prince Andrew was gone did Rostov think of what he ought to have said.
But what was most amusing," he continued, with a sudden, good-natured laugh, "was that we could not think how to address the reply!
"However, I think General Kutuzov has come out," said Prince Andrew.
Kutuzov looked sternly at his adjutant and, after a pause, replied: I think the battle will be lost, and so I told Count Tolstoy and asked him to tell the Emperor.
What do you think he replied?
"So you think he is powerless?" said Langeron.
I don't think Ilya drives anyone except the Tsar!
I don't think about him or anyone else, and I don't want anything of the kind.
"No, but don't you think it's nice?" she kept repeating.
There will be time enough to think about love when I want to, but now I have no time.
If you are going to fight a duel, and you make a will and write affectionate letters to your parents, and if you think you may be killed, you are a fool and are lost for certain.
"Mary Bogdanovna, I think it's beginning!" said Princess Mary looking at the midwife with wide-open eyes of alarm.
I think there were not many such gallant sons of the fatherland out there as he.
I love you, and I think I love you more than anyone else....
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.
"I know your outlook," said the Mason, "and the view of life you mention, and which you think is the result of your own mental efforts, is the one held by the majority of people, and is the invariable fruit of pride, indolence, and ignorance.
Drawing nearer, he recognized in the Rhetor a man he knew, Smolyaninov, and it mortified him to think that the newcomer was an acquaintance--he wished him simply a brother and a virtuous instructor.
Think this over and I will come to you again.
I think so... but as you please, said Princess Mary, evidently intimidated and confused that her opinion had prevailed.
I go to bed after two in the morning, thoughts come and I can't sleep but toss about till dawn, because I think and can't help thinking, just as he can't help plowing and mowing; if he didn't, he would go to the drink shop or fall ill.
No, but why do you think so?
Pierre suddenly began, lowering his head and looking like a bull about to charge, why do you think so?
You should not think so.
Well, what do you think about it?
What do I think about it?
I think it would be best not to bring it before the Emperor, but to apply to the commander of the corps....
What d'you think of the treat?
At such moments Princess Mary would think how intellectual work dries men up.
"I think, however, that these condemnations have some ground," returned Prince Andrew, trying to resist Speranski's influence, of which he began to be conscious.
He did nothing, did not even think or find time to think, but only talked, and talked successfully, of what he had thought while in the country.
It was evident that the thought could never occur to him which to Prince Andrew seemed so natural, namely, that it is after all impossible to express all one thinks; and that he had never felt the doubt, "Is not all I think and believe nonsense?"
He did not think of doubting Freemasonry itself, but suspected that Russian Masonry had taken a wrong path and deviated from its original principles.
I think you know it already.
"I should think so!" replied Natasha's laughing eyes.
Natasha had not had a moment free since early morning and had not once had time to think of what lay before her.
What do you think of Natalie?
What do you think, Prince?
Le cousinage est un dangereux voisinage. * Don't you think so?
I don't think, and don't want to think about it!
And what do you think, dear friend?
Perhaps, I often think, she was too angelically innocent to have the strength to perform all a mother's duties.
In spite of my wish to see you, I do not think so and do not want to do so.
I do not think my brother will ever marry again, and certainly not her; and this is why: first, I know that though he rarely speaks about the wife he has lost, the grief of that loss has gone too deep in his heart for him ever to decide to give her a successor and our little angel a stepmother.
I do not think he would choose her for a wife, and frankly I do not wish it.
"We ought to go, don't you think so?" said Nicholas.
"You mustn't think we'll be in anyone's way, Uncle," she said.
"Ah, he has found one, I think," said Ilagin carelessly.
"Don't dare to think about it," she said to herself, and sat down again smilingly beside "Uncle," begging him to play something more.
Don't you think so?...
"I should think so!" he replied.
"I think this used to be Natasha," thought Nicholas, "and that was Madame Schoss, but perhaps it's not, and this Circassian with the mustache I don't know, but I love her."
It hurt her to think that while she lived only in the thought of him, he was living a real life, seeing new places and new people that interested him.
I have a solution ready, but have no time now--I'll think it all out later on!
What do you think of it, my dear?
"I think, Princess, it is not convenient to speak of that now," she said with external dignity and coldness, though she felt the tears choking her.
No, I had better not think of him; not think of him but forget him, quite forget him for the present.
Oh, better not think of it--not till he comes back! she told herself, and began looking at the faces, some strange and some familiar, in the stalls.
She could say what she did not think--especially what was flattering--quite simply and naturally.
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.
She could no longer think of him by herself calmly and continuously as she had done before.
As soon as she began to think of him, the recollection of the old prince, of Princess Mary, of the theater, and of Kuragin mingled with her thoughts.
"I don't think so when I look at you!" said Anatole, following Natasha.
She's afraid you might think that she does not like you.
"Do not think, however," she wrote, "that my father is ill-disposed toward you.
"But think what you are doing," cried Sonya.
Think of your father and of Nicholas.
Why do you think so badly of me?
I don't think anything, only I don't understand this...
Now don't think badly of me or of him.
I don't think badly of anyone: I love and pity everybody.
Do you think I am not grateful?
I helped you, but all the same I must tell you the truth; it is a dangerous business, and if you think about it--a stupid business.
I think you remember that, your excellency?
Well, if he had carried you off... do you think they wouldn't have found him?
From the pretense of illness, from his daughter's distress, and by the embarrassed faces of Sonya and Marya Dmitrievna, the count saw clearly that something had gone wrong during his absence, but it was so terrible for him to think that anything disgraceful had happened to his beloved daughter, and he so prized his own cheerful tranquillity, that he avoided inquiries and tried to assure himself that nothing particularly had happened; and he was only dissatisfied that her indisposition delayed their return to the country.
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.
I... I didn't think of it.
Natasha was evidently dismayed at the thought of what he might think she had meant.
Prince Andrew did not think it proper to write and challenge Kuragin.
Not only could he no longer think the thoughts that had first come to him as he lay gazing at the sky on the field of Austerlitz and had later enlarged upon with Pierre, and which had filled his solitude at Bogucharovo and then in Switzerland and Rome, but he even dreaded to recall them and the bright and boundless horizons they had revealed.
Does he think me a scoundrel, or an old fool who, without any reason, keeps his own daughter at a distance and attaches this Frenchwoman to himself?
If you think someone has wronged you, forget it and forgive!
God forbid that he should be humane, should love, or pity, or think of what is just and unjust.
If the thought that things looked bad chanced to enter anyone's head, he tried to be as cheerful as befits a good soldier and not to think of the general trend of affairs, but only of the task nearest to hand.
He had grown accustomed when going into action to think about anything but what would seem most likely to interest him--the impending danger.
They could not think of anything but how to help her.
When they prayed for those who hate us, she tried to think of her enemies and people who hated her, in order to pray for them.
Only at prayer did she feel able to think clearly and calmly of Prince Andrew and Anatole, as men for whom her feelings were as nothing compared with her awe and devotion to God.
What do you think?"--she was speaking hurriedly, evidently afraid her strength might fail her-- "Will he ever forgive me?
No, I think I'll go home.
"I think that before discussing these questions," Pierre continued, "we should ask the Emperor--most respectfully ask His Majesty--to let us know the number of our troops and the position in which our army and our forces now are, and then..."
Of the war Princess Mary thought as women do think about wars.
Princess Mary saw Dessalles' embarrassed and astonished look fixed on her father, noticed his silence, and was struck by the fact that her father had forgotten his son's letter on the drawing-room table; but she was not only afraid to speak of it and ask Dessalles the reason of his confusion and silence, but was afraid even to think about it.
For Christ's sake think of us! cried his wife, referring to the rumors of war and the enemy.
Just what I think, Yakov Alpatych.
But despite this, thanks to his regiment, Prince Andrew had something to think about entirely apart from general questions.
She could understand nothing, think of nothing and feel nothing, except passionate love for her father, love such as she thought she had never felt till that moment.
I understand that you could not, and cannot, think of yourself, but with my love for you I must do so....
He hopes we should be in time to get away tomorrow, but I think it would now be better to stay here, said Mademoiselle Bourienne.
If you think something more is wanted, tell me!
She felt that she could not understand them however much she might think about them.
She tried to think of something else and to pray, but could do neither.
* "Think it over; get into the barque, and take care not to make it a barque of Charon."
"No, I think the sale will come off in a few days," said someone.
You don't think Moscow is in danger?
Not only did the Russians not fortify the position on the field of Borodino to the left of, and at a right angle to, the highroad (that is, the position on which the battle took place), but never till the twenty- fifth of August, 1812, did they think that a battle might be fought there.
The cavalry ride to battle and meet the wounded and do not for a moment think of what awaits them, but pass by, winking at the wounded.
The officer appeared abashed, as though he understood that one might think of how many men would be missing tomorrow but ought not to speak of it.
And should your Serene Highness require a man who will not spare his skin, please think of me....
I don't think this interests you?
"Well, and what do you think of Kutuzov's appointment?" he asked.
What do you think of him?
"So you think we shall win tomorrow's battle?" asked Pierre.
Well, Rapp, do you think we shall do good business today?
Then you do not think, like some others, that we must retreat?
For people accustomed to think that plans of campaign and battles are made by generals--as any one of us sitting over a map in his study may imagine how he would have arranged things in this or that battle--the questions present themselves: Why did Kutuzov during the retreat not do this or that?
People accustomed to think in that way forget, or do not know, the inevitable conditions which always limit the activities of any commander in chief.
Think what you are saying!
Perhaps you think you have invented a novelty?
She began to think she would never live to see such happiness.
After all, ours are things that can be bought but think what being left behind means to them!...
You know, I think, my dear... let them be taken... where's the hurry?
"I can't think what the servants are about," said the countess, turning to her husband.
You think I won't get to him?
Do they think we're dogs? voices in the crowd were heard saying more and more frequently.
Deal with him as you think fit!
"I think not," answered the Frenchman, feeling himself over.
Afterwards when he had received a name and wealth he dared not think of her because he loved her too well, placing her far above everything in the world, and especially therefore above himself.
But what do you think, Daniel Terentich?
"I think she's asleep, Mamma," said Sonya softly.
They all knew very well that the enchanting countess' illness arose from an inconvenience resulting from marrying two husbands at the same time, and that the Italian's cure consisted in removing such inconvenience; but in Anna Pavlovna's presence no one dared to think of this or even appear to know it.
And as long as my sister Natasha was engaged to her brother it was of course out of the question for me to think of marrying her.
How can one think of it!
I didn't think they would come so soon.
"Well, I think you must be sleepy," said he, and began rapidly crossing himself and repeating:
I think you must be tired, Princess.
If I did not know you I should think you did not want what you are asking for.
"You think he went off just by chance?" said a comrade, who was on the staff that evening, to the officer of the Horse Guards, referring to Ermolov.
I think I could? he returned, inquiringly.
Then I see he's no good and think I'll go and fetch a likelier one.
"So then what do you think, Vasili Dmitrich?" said he to Denisov.
"If grown-up, distinguished men think so, it must be necessary and right," thought he.
When he did so and heard the subdued moaning with which Karataev generally lay down at the halting places, and when he smelled the odor emanating from him which was now stronger than before, Pierre moved farther away and did not think about him.
He did not think of Karataev who grew weaker every day and evidently would soon have to share that fate.
Still less did Pierre think about himself.
Well, and what do you think, dear friends?
Karataev continued, his face brightening more and more with a rapturous smile as if what he now had to tell contained the chief charm and the whole meaning of his story: What do you think, dear fellows?
Natasha as usual answered before she had time to think what she would say.
What does she think about me?
"Mary," she said timidly, drawing Princess Mary's hand to herself, "Mary, you mustn't think me wicked.
She did not think of applying submission and self-abnegation to her own life, for she was accustomed to seek other joys, but she understood and loved in another those previously incomprehensible virtues.
"But they're a clean folk, lads," the first man went on; "he was white-- as white as birchbark--and some of them are such fine fellows, you might think they were nobles."
You would think the women had spread out their linen, said one of the men, gazing with admiration at the Milky Way.
He remembered a general impression of the misfortunes and sufferings of people and of being worried by the curiosity of officers and generals who questioned him, he also remembered his difficulty in procuring a conveyance and horses, and above all he remembered his incapacity to think and feel all that time.
Just then he was only anxious to get away as quickly as possible from places where people were killing one another, to some peaceful refuge where he could recover himself, rest, and think over all the strange new facts he had learned; but on reaching Orel he immediately fell ill.
When was he going to Petersburg and would he mind taking a parcel for someone?--he replied: "Yes, perhaps," or, "I think so," and so on.
"What can one say or think of as a consolation?" said Pierre.
As he listened he did not think of Prince Andrew, nor of death, nor of what she was telling.
Pierre in shamefaced and happy confusion glanced occasionally at her, and tried to think what to say next to introduce a fresh subject.
What makes you think so?
You think I may hope?
"Yes, I think so," said Princess Mary with a smile.
Think what fun it will be when I am his wife and you marry Nicholas!
I do not know why a certain event occurs; I think that I cannot know it; so I do not try to know it and I talk about chance.
Let me live like a man and think of my soul and of God.
You would at least be seeing somebody, and I think it must be dull for you only seeing us.
He wished to help her and say something pleasant, but could think of nothing to say.
As I understand your present life, I think you will always recall it with satisfaction, because the self-sacrifice that fills it now...
And all Nicholas did was fruitful--probably just because he refused to allow himself to think that he was doing good to others for virtue's sake.
I didn't even think of being angry, he replied.
"Mary, dear, I think he is asleep--he was so tired," said Sonya, meeting her in the large sitting room (it seemed to Countess Mary that she crossed her path everywhere).
He wanted to smile but dared not even think of doing so.
"What do you think of this?" said he, unrolling a piece of stuff like a shopman.
She had to eat, sleep, think, speak, weep, work, give vent to her anger, and so on, merely because she had a stomach, a brain, muscles, nerves, and a liver.
"Yes, I think so," he said reluctantly, and left the study.
I think that punishment by depriving children of sweets only develops their greediness.
Well, I don't think you need reproach yourself on his account.
He took this as a sign of approval and a confirmation of his thoughts, and after a few minutes' reflection continued to think aloud.
She looked at him and did not think, but felt, about something different.
It would be a mistake to think that this is ironic--a caricature of the historical accounts.
The man who worked most with his hands could not think so much about what he was doing, or reflect on or command what would result from the common activity; while the man who commanded more would evidently work less with his hands on account of his greater verbal activity.
She wasn't vain enough to think that turned him to drinking, though.
What did you really think when you found out Alex was a Mexican?
Just about time I think the two of you are making progress, something like this comes up.
We wouldn't want them to think we were doing anything immoral.
Umm. Well, I think something like 50% of marriages fail - maybe more.
I think she was merely directing the comment at you because she thought you might want to know.
Do you think I'm high maintenance?
I think Alex makes a concentrated effort to drive his father crazy.
Yeah, I think it's more like a miniature rodeo.
Maybe they think they have.
I think maybe Alex married you to get away from his family.
Alex wouldn't lie, but if he was given enough time to think about it, he could certainly evade the issue.
I don't think of it that way.
Let's not think of unpleasant things right now.
"I think grandfather likes you," he said one morning to Carmen.
No, I think I've seen enough.
There was no reason for him to think his father might be romantically interested in her.
She left him there to think about his actions - only he would probably stew on hers instead.
Sure, he'd had some rough times, but she had never done anything to make him think she would be unfaithful.
I think you owe me an explanation.
"You think he is handsome," Dulce continued, "and you love him.
How long did he think he could hide them - or avoid them, for that matter?
She took out some of his and hers so he wouldn't think she was packing to leave him.
"I think we'd better stick to the river, after this," said Dorothy.
"That I have forgotten," replied the Gump's Head, "and I do not think it is of much importance.
I think this is the loveliest country in the world; but not being fairies Jim and I feel we ought to be where we belong--and that's at the ranch.
"I cannot think of leaving these little things here to be trampled upon," said the general.
He was very proud to think of this, and he wished that he might grow up to be like them.
He looked at the beast, and--what do you think it was?
"Do you think there will be a battle?" asked the blacksmith.
Yes, I think we may risk it.
Well, I have here a puzzle which I think will test your wisdom.
I think that he must have fallen upon some bushes and vines that grew in some parts of the chasm.
The Romans answered, We must have time to think of this matter.
"Well, I can make some oars," said Robert; "but I think there ought to be still another and a better way.
"I wonder why we didn't think of something like that long ago," said his father.
Yes, I think so, said Jacquot.
"Think what your mother would say if she saw you in the clothes of a poor man's son." said the cardinal.
Think of what all the fine ladies would say.
"It is well," said he, "that neither a merchant nor a fisherman shall have it; for such men think only of their business and care really nothing for beauty."
Think of the optimism!
I can't think of anything offline to compare it to.
Think about it this way: All the technology accumulated from the dawn of time to today has given us a certain amount of processing power.
But I do think we will see an end to any effective constraints relating to computers' ability to process data and transfer information.
That said, if I had to pick one function I think the Internet will turn out to "be," it is this: The Internet will become a repository and a set of applications for storing the sum total of all life experiences of all people on earth.
I think to the extent the data is not identifiable to a person and is only used to make suggestions to others, people will participate.
Think about notable astronomers of centuries past, who collected their own data through years of careful observation.
You could start looking around for lines that connect things we didn't previously think were connected.
When we consider the costs of all the wrong decisions ever made—a calculation I don't even know how to approach—we will think of it as a diminishing problem receding into the past.
Of all the celebrated accomplishments of science, I think none is more significant than the end of certain diseases, especially the scourge of polio.
I think that is the case with polio and smallpox, which means they weren't eliminated because they were easy, but because they were awful.
When we think of decoding the genome, we typically think in terms of the human genome.
Why do I think this?
And like our example with energy, technology and human innovation could make other things that are now scarce—or that we think of now as scarce—not so at all.
First, many things in the physical world that we think of as scarce are not really scarce, just presently beyond our ability to capture.
Now, think about machines.
Think of all the machines you use to do your job.
I think most people want this.
I think a lot would.
Think of the shape of that curve and project it into the future.
Try to think of the advances we have seen so far in history as the very tip of the iceberg, a hint of what is possible, not even being within sight of what is possible.
Finally I noticed a very obvious error in the sequence and for an instant I concentrated my attention on the lesson and tried to think how I should have arranged the beads.
I was more interested, I think, in the great rock on which the Pilgrims landed than in anything else in Plymouth.
