"Well, it seems that no one has noticed," thought Rostov.
"Get well soon, lads!" he continued, turning to the soldiers.

"Well, now tell me about your exploits," said he.

Rostov himself, his legs well back and his stomach drawn in and feeling himself one with his horse, rode past the Emperor with a frowning but blissful face "like a vewy devil," as Denisov expressed it.
"Very well, then, be so good as to wait," said Prince Andrew to the general, in Russian, speaking with the French intonation he affected when he wished to speak contemptuously, and noticing Boris, Prince Andrew, paying no more heed to the general who ran after him imploring him to hear something more, nodded and turned to him with a cheerful smile.
Well, my dear fellow, so you still want to be an adjutant?
Rostov saw how the Emperor's rather round shoulders shuddered as if a cold shiver had run down them, how his left foot began convulsively tapping the horse's side with the spur, and how the well-trained horse looked round unconcerned and did not stir.
"Well, how d'you do, my dear fellow?" said Dolgorukov, who was sitting at tea with Bilibin.
Well, what is Bonaparte like?
"Well and then?" asked the other voice.
If before that you are not ten times wounded, killed, or betrayed, well... what then?...
"Well then," Prince Andrew answered himself, "I don't know what will happen and don't want to know, and can't, but if I want this--want glory, want to be known to men, want to be loved by them, it is not my fault that I want it and want nothing but that and live only for that.
"Well?" returned the old man.
"Well, go and see," he said, after a pause.
Oh, very well, you may stay in attendance on me.
Czartoryski, Novosiltsev, Prince Volkonsky, Strogonov, and the others, all richly dressed gay young men on splendid, well-groomed, fresh, only slightly heated horses, exchanging remarks and smiling, had stopped behind the Emperor.
"How it will be there I don't know, but all will be well!" thought Rostov.
Well, how did it go?
"Well, and you, young man," said he.
The well-known old door handle, which always angered the countess when it was not properly cleaned, turned as loosely as ever.
"All well?" asked Rostov, drawing away his arm.
The servants were bringing in jugs and basins, hot water for shaving, and their well- brushed clothes.
"Well, and is that all?" he asked.
Well, she loves me and you like that.
Well, she says you are to forget all that....
Rostov saw that it had been well considered by them.
"Well then, that's excellent," said he.
"Well, and are you still true to Boris?" he continued.
Well then, you won't understand.
Oh, well then, good-by: go and dress.
Well then, be quick.
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.
Say that everything out of the hothouses must be brought here well wrapped up in felt.
Some of the most important old men were the center of groups which even strangers approached respectfully to hear the voices of well-known men.
Well, I will read them, then!
"Well then, till tomorrow at Sokolniki," said Dolokhov, as he took leave of Rostov in the club porch.
Well, you see, I'll tell you the whole secret of dueling in two words.
"Well begin!" said Dolokhov.
Well, what's this now?
Well, what have you proved?
Very well, but only if you give me a fortune, said Helene.
"Well, the Lord be thanked, Princess," said Mary Bogdanovna, not hastening her steps.
We'll manage very well without a doctor.
Well, I don't know about that, but I am uncomfortable with him.
"Well, you'd better not play," Dolokhov added, and springing a new pack of cards said: "Bank, gentlemen!"
He well remembered that seven afterwards.
I am well and strong and still the same and in the same place.
Well, won't you go on?
"Well--had a good time?" said the old count, smiling gaily and proudly at his son.
"Well!..." said the old count, spreading out his arms and sinking helplessly on the sofa.
Well then, what do you want?
Well, if you are in love, marry him! said the countess, with a laugh of annoyance.
Well then, tell him so.
It's all very well for you, said Natasha, with a responsive smile.
Well, all the same, you must refuse him.
Well then, accept his offer.
He looked at the countess, and seeing her severe face said: "Well, good-by, Countess," and kissing her hand, he left the room with quick resolute strides, without looking at Natasha.
You are young, you are rich, you are clever, you are well educated.
Having entered the courtyard of a large house where the Lodge had its headquarters, and having ascended a dark staircase, they entered a small well-lit anteroom where they took off their cloaks without the aid of a servant.
"Very well," said Smolyaninov, and went on at once: "Have you any idea of the means by which our holy Order will help you to reach your aim?" said he quietly and quickly.
Pierre knew very well what a hieroglyph was, but dared not speak.
I have certainly acquired a taste for war, and it is just as well for me; what I have seen during these last three months is incredible.
"Well, what is it?" came a sharp, unpleasant voice.
"Well, I did not expect you, I am very glad," said Prince Andrew.
Well, you see, I'm building.
Well, you want an argument," he added, "come on then."
Well, as I was saying," he continued, recovering his composure, "now there's this recruiting.
Well, there you see!
Well, what do you think about it?
Well, that's it then!
Well, and what do you think?
I understand them so well and have the greatest respect for them.
Well, my boy, the old prince went on, addressing his son and patting Pierre on the shoulder.
She is like a sister to me, and I can't tell you how it offended me... because... well, for that reason....
He could hear that Lavrushka--that sly, bold orderly of Denisov's--was talking, as well as the quartermaster.
"Very well, then!" shouted the little officer, undaunted and not riding away.
"Very well, very well!" muttered the officer, threateningly, and turning his horse he trotted away, jolting in his saddle.
It's well that the charitable Prussian ladies send us two pounds of coffee and some lint each month or we should be lost! he laughed.
"It's certainly well written," said Tushin, "but that's not the point, Vasili Dmitrich," and he also turned to Rostov.
"Well, let it be bad," said Denisov.
Well then, say so!
"Well then, go, go, go..." said Rostov, and refusing supper and remaining alone in the little room, he walked up and down for a long time, hearing the lighthearted French conversation from the next room.
On approaching Alexander he raised his hat, and as he did so, Rostov, with his cavalryman's eye, could not help noticing that Napoleon did not sit well or firmly in the saddle.
During his service, chiefly as an adjutant, Prince Andrew had seen the anterooms of many important men, and the different types of such rooms were well known to him.
The reforming party cordially welcomed and courted him, in the first place because he was reputed to be clever and very well read, and secondly because by liberating his serfs he had obtained the reputation of being a liberal.
Well, I have Pryanichnikov serving under me, a splendid man, a priceless man, but he's sixty.
Though he usually spoke easily and well, he felt a difficulty in expressing himself now while talking with Speranski.
He liked to dine and drink well, and though he considered it immoral and humiliating could not resist the temptations of the bachelor circles in which he moved.
Often after collecting alms, and reckoning up twenty to thirty rubles received for the most part in promises from a dozen members, of whom half were as well able to pay as himself, Pierre remembered the masonic vow in which each Brother promised to devote all his belongings to his neighbor, and doubts on which he tried not to dwell arose in his soul.
Well, you will be coming," he was going to say, "to dine," but changed his mind and said "to take tea with us," and quickly doubling up his tongue he blew a small round ring of tobacco smoke, perfectly embodying his dream of happiness.
"Well, do you recognize your little madcap playmate?" asked the countess.
"Well, what then?" said she.
Well, I won't marry, but let him come if he enjoys it and I enjoy it.
The grandee's well-known mansion on the English Quay glittered with innumerable lights.
You are so discerning, Prince, and understand people's characters so well at a glance.
"Well?" asked Pierre, seeing his friend's strange animation with surprise, and noticing the glance he turned on Natasha as he rose.
In the evening, when Prince Andrew had left, the countess went up to Natasha and whispered: "Well, what?"
"Well, dear heart," said he, "I wanted to tell you about it yesterday and I have come to do so today.
Well, and very nice too!
When Prince Andrew spoke (he could tell a story very well), Natasha listened to him with pride; when she spoke she noticed with fear and joy that he gazed attentively and scrutinizingly at her.
Rostov had become a bluff, good-natured fellow, whom his Moscow acquaintances would have considered rather bad form, but who was liked and respected by his comrades, subordinates, and superiors, and was well contented with his life.
Well, are you glad?
(This shrubbery was a well-known haven of refuge for culprits at Otradnoe.
Well, I don't like Anna Mikhaylovna and I don't like Boris, but they were our friends and poor.
Well then, this! and he tore up the note, and by so doing caused the old countess to weep tears of joy.
"Well, nephew, you're going for a big wolf," said "Uncle."
Having straightened his coat and fastened on his hunting knives and horn, he mounted his good, sleek, well-fed, and comfortable horse, Viflyanka, which was turning gray, like himself.
"Well, Nastasya Ivanovna!" whispered the count, winking at him.
He understands the matter so well that Daniel and I are often quite astounded, said Simon, well knowing what would please his master.
And how well he looks on his horse, eh?
"That black-spotted one of yours is fine--well shaped!" said he.
There, it has beaten them all, the thousand-ruble as well as the one-ruble borzois.
Well, I am like any other dog as long as it's not a question of coursing.
A score of women serfs, old and young, as well as children, popped out from the back entrance to have a look at the hunters who were arriving.
He took the guitar a little above the fingerboard, arching his left elbow with a somewhat theatrical gesture, and, with a wink at Anisya Fedorovna, struck a single chord, pure and sonorous, and then quietly, smoothly, and confidently began playing in very slow time, not My Lady, but the well-known song: Came a maiden down the street.
"Well, little countess; that's it--come on!" cried "Uncle," with a joyous laugh, having finished the dance.
Well, you see, first I thought that Rugay, the red hound, was like Uncle, and that if he were a man he would always keep Uncle near him, if not for his riding, then for his manner.
And then I was saying to myself all the way, 'How well Anisya carried herself, how well!'
Well, sit down by me.
"That is metempsychosis," said Sonya, who had always learned well, and remembered everything.
The soul is immortal--well then, if I shall always live I must have lived before, lived for a whole eternity.
Well, whatever it may be...
Well, you have cheered us up!
Well, Mr. Hussar, and what regiment do you serve in? she asked Natasha.
Well, say you went to the barn now, and listened.
Well, why not, if you're not afraid?
"Sonya, is it well with thee?" he asked from time to time.
Well, run back to her.
Well, and then, Sonya?...
When there were quarrels, his kindly smile and well-timed jests reconciled the antagonists.
The prince is not very well: bile and rush of blood to the head.
"Well, good-by, your excellency, keep well!" said Rostopchin, getting up with characteristic briskness and holding out his hand to the prince.
"Well, good-by, your excellency, keep well!" said Rostopchin, getting up with characteristic briskness and holding out his hand to the prince.
Well, now we'll talk.
He well remembered the last interview he had had with the old prince at the time of the enrollment, when in reply to an invitation to dinner he had had to listen to an angry reprimand for not having provided his full quota of men.
Their box was pervaded by that atmosphere of an affianced couple which Natasha knew so well and liked so much.
Having looked at Natasha he approached his sister, laid his well gloved hand on the edge of her box, nodded to her, and leaning forward asked a question, with a motion toward Natasha.
Well, I'm glad of it!
Well, that can't happen twice!
She looked at Natasha's dresses and praised them, as well as a new dress of her own made of "metallic gauze," which she had received from Paris, and advised Natasha to have one like it.
"Well, friends, I have now thought the whole matter over and this is my advice," she began.
Well, I had a talk with him....
"Well, and he?" asked the count.
"Why could that not be as well?" she sometimes asked herself in complete bewilderment.
"Well, then, are you refusing Prince Andrew?" said Sonya.
"Well, anyway," thought Sonya as she stood in the dark passage, "now or never I must prove that I remember the family's goodness to me and that I love Nicholas.
"Well," he said, "Khvostikov must have two thousand."
Well, thank you for it.
Well, you'll carry her off--all right!
Well and when the money's gone, what then?
Well, here he is!
Well, good-by, Theodore.
"Well, comrades and friends..." he considered for a moment "...of my youth, farewell!" he said, turning to Makarin and the others.
Well, comrades and friends of my youth, we've had our fling and lived and reveled.
"Well, good-by, Matrena," said Anatole, kissing her.
"Well, Prince, may God give you great luck!" said Matrena in her gypsy accent.
"Well, are you ready?" asked Balaga.
Well, if he had carried you off... do you think they wouldn't have found him?
"Well, let her sleep," said Marya Dmitrievna as she went out of the room supposing Natasha to be asleep.
Natasha is not quite well; she's in her room and would like to see you.
The expression of that base and cringing smile, which Pierre knew so well in his wife, revolted him.
Well, how are you?
"Yes, I am well," he said in answer to Pierre's question, and smiled.
"Well, it doesn't matter," said Prince Andrew.
Prince Andrew talked incessantly, arguing now with his father, now with the Swiss tutor Dessalles, and showing an unnatural animation, the cause of which Pierre so well understood.
The officer, the soldiers, and their horses all looked smart and well kept.
"Well, General, it all looks like war," as if regretting a circumstance of which he was unable to judge.
Napoleon was in that well-known after-dinner mood which, more than any reasoned cause, makes a man contented with himself and disposed to consider everyone his friend.
The old prince knew very well that he tormented his daughter and that her life was very hard, but he also knew that he could not help tormenting her and that she deserved it.
"Well, go on!" said his son.
In attendance on him was the head of the imperial staff, Quartermaster General Prince Volkonski, as well as generals, imperial aides-de-camp, diplomatic officials, and a large number of foreigners, but not the army staff.

A third, in the absence of opponents, between two councils would simply solicit a special gratuity for his faithful services, well knowing that at that moment people would be too busy to refuse him.
Young Count Toll objected to the Swedish general's views more warmly than anyone else, and in the course of the dispute drew from his side pocket a well-filled notebook, which he asked permission to read to them.
Well, of course, what more is there to explain?
He is sleeping well as it is, after a sleepless night.
"Well, but supposing Mary Hendrikhovna is 'King'?" asked Ilyin.
"You'll never get well like that," she would say, forgetting her grief in her vexation, "if you won't obey the doctor and take your medicine at the right time!
Unexpectedly, in the middle of the service, and not in the usual order Natasha knew so well, the deacon brought out a small stool, the one he knelt on when praying on Trinity Sunday, and placed it before the doors of the sanctuary screen.
Well, what about my plan?
"Well, mon cher, have you got the manifesto?" asked the old count.
Well, and what news from the army?
Well, Papa, I tell you definitely, and Mamma too, it's as you please, but I say definitely that you must let me enter the army, because I can't... that's all....
"Well, Peter Kirilych, let's go and have a smoke," he said.
"Well, then, au revoir!" said the count, and went out of the room.
Petya wiped his perspiring face with his hands and pulled up the damp collar which he had arranged so well at home to seem like a man's.
(He was well acquainted with the senator, but thought it necessary on this occasion to address him formally.)
"Well, at last I've finished, now I'll rest," thought the prince, and let Tikhon undress him.
Three well-fed roans stood ready harnessed to a small conveyance with a leather hood.
"Well, good-by!" said Prince Andrew, bending over to Alpatych.
Well, is she pretty?
But before the words were well out of his mouth, his cap flew off and a fierce blow jerked his head to one side.
"Well, supposing I do love him?" thought Princess Mary.
It's all vewy well--only not for those who get it in the neck.
Well, good-by, General, he added, and rode into the yard past Prince Andrew and Denisov.
Well, what is it?
"Well, that's all!" said Kutuzov as he signed the last of the documents, and rising heavily and smoothing out the folds in his fat white neck he moved toward the door with a more cheerful expression.
"Well, my dear, and how are we getting on?" he asked, moving to the door of the room assigned to him.
Well, sit down, sit down here.
I am going because... well, because everyone is going: and besides--I am not Joan of Arc or an Amazon.
Natalie is quite well again now, isn't she?
"Well, and how is she?" asked Pierre.
She is well, but sad.
"Well then, sell it," said he.
On the other question, how the battle of Borodino and the preceding battle of Shevardino were fought, there also exists a definite and well- known, but quite false, conception.
Well, you know, I wanted to see...
Well, that's not my line.
We have ten thousand carts, but we need other things as well--we must manage as best we can!
Well, you see, that's difficult to explain....
"Well, send number three company again," the officer replied hurriedly.
Well, you can do that later, but the chief thing is the left flank.
Well, and how's Moscow?
"Well, then, you know more than anyone else, be it who it may," said Prince Andrew.
"Well, and what do you think of Kutuzov's appointment?" he asked.
Well, to mention only firewood and fodder, let me inform you.
Well, say your father has a German valet, and he is a splendid valet and satisfies your father's requirements better than you could, then it's all right to let him serve.
While Russia was well, a foreigner could serve her and be a splendid minister; but as soon as she is in danger she needs one of her own kin.
Ah, well, it's not for long! he added.
Well, what is Paris saying? he asked, suddenly changing his former stern expression for a most cordial tone.
Napoleon at the battle of Borodino fulfilled his office as representative of authority as well as, and even better than, at other battles.
Well, Rapp, do you think we shall do good business today?
Napoleon's generals--Davout, Ney, and Murat, who were near that region of fire and sometimes even entered it--repeatedly led into it huge masses of well-ordered troops.
On the other table, round which many people were crowding, a tall well-fed man lay on his back with his head thrown back.
A new horizon and new labors were opening out, full of well-being and prosperity for all.
"Give me your hand," said he and, turning it over so as to feel the pulse, added: "You are not well, my dear fellow.
"Well, gentlemen, I see that it is I who will have to pay for the broken crockery," said he, and rising slowly he moved to the table.
The first people to go away were the rich educated people who knew quite well that Vienna and Berlin had remained intact and that during Napoleon's occupation the inhabitants had spent their time pleasantly in the company of the charming Frenchmen whom the Russians, and especially the Russian ladies, then liked so much.
They went away because for Russians there could be no question as to whether things would go well or ill under French rule in Moscow.
"Well, yes," said she, "it may be that he has other sentiments for me than those of a father, but that is not a reason for me to shut my door on him.
Well my dear child, you know how your father's heart rejoices to know that you...
Well then, Peter Kirilych, come along with us, we'll take you there.
Well, good-by, Peter Kirilych--isn't it?
That will help them to get well quicker.
Oh, well, you know people often invent things.
Well, he took that icon home with him for a few days and what did he do?
Well, mon cher, what are you doing personally?
"Well, perhaps," said he with a sigh.
"Well, Vasilich, is everything ready?" asked the count, and stroking his bald head he looked good-naturedly at the officer and the orderly and nodded to them.
Well, what of it... do what's necessary... said the count, muttering some indefinite order.
"Well, never mind, some of the things can be unloaded," he added in a soft, confidential voice, as though afraid of being overheard.
Please let me have one, I will pay the man well, and...
"It's all very well for you, Ivan Sidorych, to talk," said the first tradesman angrily.
"An officer, I have to see him," came the reply in a pleasant, well-bred Russian voice.
"Oh well... it can't be helped!" said he in a tone of vexation and placed his hand on the gate as if to leave.
I know the law very well, mates!
As a hungry herd of cattle keeps well together when crossing a barren field, but gets out of hand and at once disperses uncontrollably as soon as it reaches rich pastures, so did the army disperse all over the wealthy city.
"Well then, take me and execute me!" he went on, speaking to himself and bowing his head with a sad but firm expression.
"Well, does no one speak French in this establishment?" he asked again.
Well, and what are we to do with this man? he added, addressing himself to Pierre as to a brother.
They called it limonade de cochon (pig's lemonade), and Morel spoke well of the limonade de cochon he had found in the kitchen.
The great redoubt held out well, by my pipe! continued the Frenchman.
Well, if you hadn't told me you were Russian, I should have wagered that you were Parisian!
Well, I don't esteem you the less for it.
Well, let's have another bottle of this Moscow Bordeaux, shall we?
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.
The buildings in Carriage Row, across the river, in the Bazaar and the Povarskoy, as well as the barges on the Moskva River and the timber yards by the Dorogomilov Bridge, were all ablaze.
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.
"It may turn out very well," he thought, "but if not, they'll know how to arrange matters."
Everything seemed to him pleasant and easy during that first part of his stay in Voronezh and, as usually happens when a man is in a pleasant state of mind, everything went well and easily.
There were a great many ladies and some of Nicholas' Moscow acquaintances, but there were no men who could at all vie with the cavalier of St. George, the hussar remount officer, the good-natured and well-bred Count Rostov.
Jauntily shifting the position of his legs in their tight riding breeches, diffusing an odor of perfume, and admiring his partner, himself, and the fine outlines of his legs in their well-fitting Hessian boots, Nicholas told the blonde lady that he wished to run away with a certain lady here in Voronezh.
Well then, remember, this is not a joke!
And on taking leave of the governor's wife, when she again smilingly said to him, "Well then, remember!" he drew her aside.
Well, all right, thanks.
"Well, are they all right?" said the soldier with a smile.
Well, and you, have you a family estate, sir?
"Well, and have you little ones?" he went on asking.
"Well, my dear fellow, I was still living at home," he began.
We had a well-to-do homestead, plenty of land, we peasants lived well and our house was one to thank God for.
But we are always judging, 'that's not well--that's not right!'
"Well, I think you must be sleepy," said he, and began rapidly crossing himself and repeating:
"Well, of course," replied Platon quickly, "the horses' saints.
He could do everything, not very well but not badly.
He liked to talk and he talked well, adorning his speech with terms of endearment and with folk sayings which Pierre thought he invented himself, but the chief charm of his talk lay in the fact that the commonest events--sometimes just such as Pierre had witnessed without taking notice of them--assumed in Karataev's a character of solemn fitness.
When during those first days he remembered that he would have to die, he said to himself: Well, what of it?
She had learned to knit stockings since Prince Andrew had casually mentioned that no one nursed the sick so well as old nurses who knit stockings, and that there is something soothing in the knitting of stockings.
Well, what do you, what do you feel in your soul, your whole soul--shall I live?
He dreamed that he was lying in the room he really was in, but that he was quite well and unwounded.
So fresh instructions were sent for the solution of difficulties that might be encountered, as well as fresh people who were to watch Kutuzov's actions and report upon them.
When Grekov returned, Count Orlov-Denisov, excited both by the abandoned attempt and by vainly awaiting the infantry columns that still did not appear, as well as by the proximity of the enemy, resolved to advance.
"I prefer not to take lessons from anyone, but I can die with my men as well as anybody," he said, and advanced with a single division.
He well knew that nothing but confusion would come of this battle undertaken against his will, and as far as was in his power held the troops back.
The genuine as well as the false paper money which flooded Moscow lost its value.
Its furry tail stood up firm and round as a plume, its bandy legs served it so well that it would often gracefully lift a hind leg and run very easily and quickly on three legs, as if disdaining to use all four.
When one has studied, you see, one likes education and well-bred people.'
"Well, you know it's burned, so what's the use of talking?" said the major.
Well, what is it?
There was within him a deep unexpressed conviction that all would be well, but that one must not trust to this and still less speak about it, but must only attend to one's own work.
They are like children from whom one can't get any sensible account of what has happened because they all want to show how well they can fight.
When the flight of the French army along the Smolensk road became well defined, what Konovnitsyn had foreseen on the night of the eleventh of October began to occur.
But such a war does not fit in under any rule and is directly opposed to a well-known rule of tactics which is accepted as infallible.
Through these forests Denisov and his party rode all day, sometimes keeping well back in them and sometimes coming to the very edge, but never losing sight of the moving French.
"Well, I am glad to see you," Denisov interrupted him, and his face again assumed its anxious expression.
"Well, all wight," said Denisov.
"Well, old fellow," said he to the peasant guide, "lead us to Shamshevo."
Denisov at once cheered up and, calling Petya to him, said: "Well, tell me about yourself."
And not waiting for a reply he answered his own question: You see I was told to find out--well, I am finding out....
"Well, never mind!" and immediately, blushing and looking anxiously at the officers to see if they appeared ironical, he said:
Well, you must excuse me, because... because...
Well, are you coming with me? he asked Petya.
"Well, now he'll come away," Petya thought every moment as he stood by the campfire listening to the talk.
Well now, good-by.
"Well, you should get some sleep now," said the Cossack.
Well, and that boy?
Perhaps he was really sitting on a wagon, but it might very well be that he was not sitting on a wagon but on a terribly high tower from which, if he fell, he would have to fall for a whole day or a whole month, or go on falling and never reach the bottom.
Well, go on, my music!
"Well, is ev'wything weady?" asked Denisov.
"Well, how are you?" he asked.
But well as he knew it, Pierre now listened to that tale as to something new, and the quiet rapture Karataev evidently felt as he told it communicated itself also to Pierre.
Well, one night the convicts were gathered just as we are, with the old man among them.
Well, and what do you think, dear friends?
The soldiers, who are worn out with hunger and fatigue, need these supplies as well as a few days' rest.
You will get well-- quite well.
She spoke so well today, said Princess Mary.
It's well that I'm a musketeer... he sang, pretending to hiccough after each syllable.
Well, he's a poor sort of soldier...
Yes, it's all very well, but when a man's feet are frozen how can he walk?
"Well, you know," said the sharp-nosed man they called Jackdaw in a squeaky and unsteady voice, raising himself at the other side of the fire, "a plump man gets thin, but for a thin one it's death.
Well, what do you think?
Well, anyhow we're going to end it.
In spite of the severe frost some hundred generals and staff officers in full parade uniform stood in front of the castle, as well as a guard of honor of the Semenov regiment.
And by old habit he asked himself the question: Well, and what then?
And he immediately gave himself the answer: Well, I shall live.
"Well, tell me... now, how did you get food?" he would ask.
Pierre felt particularly well disposed toward them all, but was now instinctively on his guard for fear of binding himself in any way.
"Well, that's all--everything," said Natasha.
"Well, good night, Mary!" said Natasha.
With a short coat and his hair cropped; just as if, well, just as if he had come straight from the bath...
"Well, good night," said Natasha.
Well, what's to be done if it cannot be avoided?
Well, Savelich, do you still not wish to accept your freedom?
But probably he knows it well enough and is only pretending.
"Well," he went on with an evident effort at self-control and coherence.
Very well, I'll go.
In this case he did well and in that case badly.
