She gropes her way without much certainty in rooms where she is quite familiar.
She does not, it would seem, prove the existence of spirit without matter, or of innate ideas, or of immortality, or anything else that any other human being does not prove.
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."

No one can have read Miss Keller's autobiography without feeling that she writes unusually fine English.
Any teacher of composition knows that he can bring his pupils to the point of writing without errors in syntax or in the choice of words.

It was, for nearly two years after this, rye and Indian meal without yeast, potatoes, rice, a very little salt pork, molasses, and salt; and my drink, water.

The student may read Homer or Ã†schylus in the Greek without danger of dissipation or luxuriousness, for it implies that he in some measure emulate their heroes, and consecrate morning hours to their pages.
The note of this once wild Indian pheasant is certainly the most remarkable of any bird's, and if they could be naturalized without being domesticated, it would soon become the most famous sound in our woods, surpassing the clangor of the goose and the hooting of the owl; and then imagine the cackling of the hens to fill the pauses when their lords' clarions rested!
The wildest animals do not repose, but seek their prey now; the fox, and skunk, and rabbit, now roam the fields and woods without fear.
He came along early, crossing my bean-field, though without anxiety or haste to get to his work, such as Yankees exhibit.
Could he do without factories?
If I suggested any improvement in his mode of life, he merely answered, without expressing any regret, that it was too late.
We are wont to forget that the sun looks on our cultivated fields and on the prairies and forests without distinction.
For the most part I escaped wonderfully from these dangers, either by proceeding at once boldly and without deliberation to the goal, as is recommended to those who run the gauntlet, or by keeping my thoughts on high things, like Orpheus, who, "loudly singing the praises of the gods to his lyre, drowned the voices of the Sirens, and kept out of danger."
The sea, however, is said to be blue one day and green another without any perceptible change in the atmosphere.
Nations come and go without defiling it.
But the only true America is that country where you are at liberty to pursue such a mode of life as may enable you to do without these, and where the state does not endeavor to compel you to sustain the slavery and war and other superfluous expenses which directly or indirectly result from the use of such things.
I have found repeatedly, of late years, that I cannot fish without falling a little in self-respect.
An unclean person is universally a slothful one, one who sits by a stove, whom the sun shines on prostrate, who reposes without being fatigued.

I had dug out the spring and made a well of clear gray water, where I could dip up a pailful without roiling it, and thither I went for this purpose almost every day in midsummer, when the pond was warmest.

However that may be, I was struck by the peculiar toughness of the steel which bore so many violent blows without being worn out.
Neither could I do without them.
I weathered some merry snow-storms, and spent some cheerful winter evenings by my fireside, while the snow whirled wildly without, and even the hooting of the owl was hushed.
We finally retreated without doing any mischief--returned to sleep and "Gondibert."
They were so familiar that at length one alighted on an armful of wood which I was carrying in, and pecked at the sticks without fear.
These trees were alive and apparently flourishing at midsummer, and many of them had grown a foot, though completely girdled; but after another winter such were without exception dead.
Not without reason was its slenderness.
What is a country without rabbits and partridges?
The night veils without doubt a part of this glorious creation; but day comes to reveal to us this great work, which extends from earth even into the plains of the ether.
It is remarkable how long men will believe in the bottomlessness of a pond without taking the trouble to sound it.
Fogs and rains and warmer suns are gradually melting the snow; the days have grown sensibly longer; and I see how I shall get through the winter without adding to my wood-pile, for large fires are no longer necessary.
The Golden Age was first created, which without any avenger Spontaneously without law cherished fidelity and rectitude.
Punishment and fear were not; nor were threatening words read On suspended brass; nor did the suppliant crowd fear The words of their judge; but were safe without an avenger.

As if that were important, and there were not enough to understand you without them.
Maybe they are simply great enough to receive without misgiving.
Others, as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders, serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without intending it, as God.
I answer, that he cannot without disgrace be associated with it.
I quarrel not with far-off foes, but with those who, near at home, co-operate with, and do the bidding of those far away, and without whom the latter would be harmless.
I think that it is enough if they have God on their side, without waiting for that other one.
If there were one who lived wholly without the use of money, the State itself would hesitate to demand it of him.
All her invitations without exception, written in French, and delivered by a scarlet-liveried footman that morning, ran as follows:
It was evident that he did not like the vicomte and was aiming his remarks at him, though without looking at him.
"Yes, if having obtained power, without availing himself of it to commit murder he had restored it to the rightful king, I should have called him a great man," remarked the vicomte.
Alone all the same, without my friends....
"No, he thinks only of himself," muttered the princess without restraining her angry tears.
And that stupid set without whom my wife cannot exist, and those women...
Without a name and without means...
Without a name and without means...
"Jacob, bring a bottle!" shouted the host, a tall, handsome fellow who stood in the midst of the group, without a coat, and with his fine linen shirt unfastened in front.
Fifty imperials... that I will drink a whole bottle of rum without taking it from my mouth, sitting outside the window on this spot" (he stooped and pointed to the sloping ledge outside the window) "and without holding on to anything.
One of the footmen who had stooped to pick up some broken glass remained in that position without taking his eyes from the window and from Dolokhov's back.
Even without a bet, there!
"Ah, my love," answered Anna Mikhaylovna, "God grant you never know what it is to be left a widow without means and with a son you love to distraction!
Boris said no more, but looked inquiringly at his mother without taking off his cloak.
The countess in turn, without omitting her duties as hostess, threw significant glances from behind the pineapples at her husband whose face and bald head seemed by their redness to contrast more than usual with his gray hair.
Of the two soups he chose turtle with savory patties and went on to the game without omitting a single dish or one of the wines.
Sometimes that same look fell on Pierre, and that funny lively little girl's look made him inclined to laugh without knowing why.
It was plain that this "well?" referred to much that they both understood without naming.
The princess continued to look at him without moving, and with the same dull expression.
"And then of course my family has also to be considered," Prince Vasili went on, testily pushing away a little table without looking at her.
They were met by a deacon with a censer and by a servant who passed out on tiptoe without heeding them.
She evidently felt unable to look at him without laughing, but could not resist looking at him: so to be out of temptation she slipped quietly behind one of the columns.
With those about him, from his daughter to his serfs, the prince was sharp and invariably exacting, so that without being a hardhearted man he inspired such fear and respect as few hardhearted men would have aroused.
However painful it may be to me, should the Almighty lay the duties of wife and mother upon me I shall try to perform them as faithfully as I can, without disquieting myself by examining my feelings toward him whom He may give me for husband.
He said nothing to her but looked at her forehead and hair, without looking at her eyes, with such contempt that the Frenchwoman blushed and went away without a word.
They might call a halt here or we'll have to do another four miles without eating.
"Denisov, let him alone, I know who has taken it," said Rostov, going toward the door without raising his eyes.
The headquarters were situated two miles away from Salzeneck, and Rostov, without returning home, took a horse and rode there.
Rostov took the money, avoiding Telyanin's eyes, and went out of the room without a word.
The soldiers without turning their heads glanced at one another, curious to see their comrades' impression.
The squadron crossed the bridge and drew out of range of fire without having lost a single man.
But Bogdanich, without looking at or recognizing Rostov, shouted to him:
He went on reading to the end, without raising his eyes at the opening of the door and the sound of footsteps.
Bolkonski, very modestly without once mentioning himself, described the engagement and his reception by the Minister of War.
"The Berlin cabinet cannot express a feeling of alliance," began Hippolyte gazing round with importance at the others, "without expressing... as in its last note... you understand...
They have crossed without striking a blow!
The officer glanced at him, and without replying turned again to the soldier.
He looked straight at his adjutant's face without recognizing him.
Bagration was to make this march without resting, and to halt facing Vienna with Znaim to his rear, and if he succeeded in forestalling the French he was to delay them as long as possible.
The success of the trick that had placed the Vienna bridge in the hands of the French without a fight led Murat to try to deceive Kutuzov in a similar way.
To be able to crush it absolutely he awaited the arrival of the rest of the troops who were on their way from Vienna, and with this object offered a three days' truce on condition that both armies should remain in position without moving.
You command only my advance guard, and have no right to arrange an armistice without my order.
Prince Andrew, without replying, asked the prince's permission to ride round the position to see the disposition of the forces, so as to know his bearings should he be sent to execute an order.
Now you, Captain, and he turned to a thin, dirty little artillery officer who without his boots (he had given them to the canteen keeper to dry), in only his stockings, rose when they entered, smiling not altogether comfortably.
One would think that as an artillery officer you would set a good example, yet here you are without your boots!
The alarm will be sounded and you'll be in a pretty position without your boots!
"The soldiers say it feels easier without boots," said Captain Tushin smiling shyly in his uncomfortable position, evidently wishing to adopt a jocular tone.
It's in charge of the queer fellow we saw without his boots.
"Why," thought Prince Andrew, "that's the captain who stood up in the sutler's hut without his boots."
The officer of the suite ventured to remark to the prince that if these battalions went away, the guns would remain without support.
He carried close to his leg a narrow unsheathed sword (small, curved, and not like a real weapon) and looked now at the superior officers and now back at the men without losing step, his whole powerful body turning flexibly.
Another, without looking round, as though fearing to relax, shouted with his mouth wide open and passed on.
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.
All the guns, without waiting for orders, were being fired in the direction of the conflagration.
Tushin gave no orders, and, silently-- fearing to speak because at every word he felt ready to weep without knowing why--rode behind on his artillery nag.
"And, if your excellency will allow me to express my opinion," he continued, "we owe today's success chiefly to the action of that battery and the heroic endurance of Captain Tushin and his company," and without awaiting a reply, Prince Andrew rose and left the table.
But when he came across a man of position his instinct immediately told him that this man could be useful, and without any premeditation Prince Vasili took the first opportunity to gain his confidence, flatter him, become intimate with him, and finally make his request.
Touched that this statuesque princess could so change, Pierre took her hand and begged her forgiveness, without knowing what for.
Helene smiled, with a look implying that she did not admit the possibility of anyone seeing her without being enchanted.
The architect had told him that it was necessary, and Pierre, without knowing why, was having his enormous Petersburg house done up.
The guests began to disperse, some without taking leave of Helene.
What could all that matter in comparison with the will of God, without Whose care not a hair of man's head can fall?
Anatole stood with his right thumb under a button of his uniform, his chest expanded and his back drawn in, slightly swinging one foot, and, with his head a little bent, looked with beaming face at the princess without speaking and evidently not thinking about her at all.
Life without Princess Mary, little as he seemed to value her, was unthinkable to him.
You have done up your hair in this new way for the visitors, and before the visitors I tell you that in future you are never to dare to change your way of dress without my consent.
Of course, she, a handsome young woman without any definite position, without relations or even a country, did not intend to devote her life to serving Prince Bolkonski, to reading aloud to him and being friends with Princess Mary.
The little princess, like an old war horse that hears the trumpet, unconsciously and quite forgetting her condition, prepared for the familiar gallop of coquetry, without any ulterior motive or any struggle, but with naive and lighthearted gaiety.
How strange, how extraordinary, how joyful it seemed, that her son, the scarcely perceptible motion of whose tiny limbs she had felt twenty years ago within her, that son about whom she used to have quarrels with the too indulgent count, that son who had first learned to say "pear" and then "granny," that this son should now be away in a foreign land amid strange surroundings, a manly warrior doing some kind of man's work of his own, without help or guidance.
Without answering, Rostov shook the soldier's Cross of St. George fastened to the cording of his uniform and, indicating a bandaged arm, glanced at Berg with a smile.
Without boasting, you know, I may say that I know the Army Orders by heart and know the Regulations as well as I do the Lord's Prayer.
Boris inquired what news there might be on the staff, and what, without indiscretion, one might ask about our plans.
Our stories have some weight, not like the stories of those fellows on the staff who get rewards without doing anything!
And the talkative Dolgorukov, turning now to Boris, now to Prince Andrew, told how Bonaparte wishing to test Markov, our ambassador, purposely dropped a handkerchief in front of him and stood looking at Markov, probably expecting Markov to pick it up for him, and how Markov immediately dropped his own beside it and picked it up without touching Bonaparte's.
Not daring to look round and without looking round, he was ecstatically conscious of his approach.
He interrupted him, talked rapidly and indistinctly, without looking at the man he was addressing, and did not reply to questions put to him.
When the reading which lasted more than an hour was over, Langeron again brought his snuffbox to rest and, without looking at Weyrother or at anyone in particular, began to say how difficult it was to carry out such a plan in which the enemy's position was assumed to be known, whereas it was perhaps not known, since the enemy was in movement.
The hussar only sighed without replying and coughed angrily.
The column moved forward without knowing where and unable, from the masses around them, the smoke and the increasing fog, to see either the place they were leaving or that to which they were going.
They were in a hurry enough to start us, and now here we stand in the middle of a field without rhyme or reason.
The infantry passing before him came to a halt without any command being given, apparently obstructed by something in front.
Kutuzov turned round without answering and his eye happened to fall upon Prince Andrew, who was beside him.
He put on the air of a subordinate who obeys without reasoning.
Kutuzov remained in the same place and without answering drew out a handkerchief.
The soldiers started firing without orders.
Rostov without hearing Boris to the end spurred his horse.
The Emperor without waiting for an answer turned away and said to one of the officers as he went: Have these gentlemen attended to and taken to my bivouac; let my doctor, Larrey, examine their wounds.
The men who set the tone in conversation--Count Rostopchin, Prince Yuri Dolgorukov, Valuev, Count Markov, and Prince Vyazemski--did not show themselves at the club, but met in private houses in intimate circles, and the Moscovites who took their opinions from others--Ilya Rostov among them--remained for a while without any definite opinion on the subject of the war and without leaders.
In his person, honor was shown to a simple fighting Russian soldier without connections and intrigues, and to one who was associated by memories of the Italian campaign with the name of Suvorov.
Bagration appeared in the doorway of the anteroom without hat or sword, which, in accord with the club custom, he had given up to the hall porter.
The committeemen met him at the first door and, expressing their delight at seeing such a highly honored guest, took possession of him as it were, without waiting for his reply, surrounded him, and led him to the drawing room.
He remembered the expression Dolokhov's face assumed in his moments of cruelty, as when tying the policeman to the bear and dropping them into the water, or when he challenged a man to a duel without any reason, or shot a post-boy's horse with a pistol.
Pierre, with downcast eyes, drank out of his glass without looking at Dolokhov or answering him.
Dolokhov walked slowly without raising his pistol, looking intently with his bright, sparkling blue eyes into his antagonist's face.
In marrying her without loving her; in deceiving yourself and her.
That I shall be the laughingstock of all Moscow, that everyone will say that you, drunk and not knowing what you were about, challenged a man you are jealous of without cause.
"Hm... Hm...!" growled Pierre, frowning without looking at her, and not moving a muscle.
We'll manage very well without a doctor.
After a while he re-entered it as if to snuff the candles, and, seeing the prince was lying on the sofa, looked at him, noticed his perturbed face, shook his head, and going up to him silently kissed him on the shoulder and left the room without snuffing the candles or saying why he had entered.
Her glittering eyes, filled with childlike fear and excitement, rested on him without changing their expression.
The doctor with his shirt sleeves tucked up, without a coat, pale and with a trembling jaw, came out of the room.
Prince Andrew turned to him, but the doctor gave him a bewildered look and passed by without a word.
He was standing close to the door and as soon as it opened his rough old arms closed like a vise round his son's neck, and without a word he began to sob like a child.
He was pointedly attentive to Sonya and looked at her in such a way that not only could she not bear his glances without coloring, but even the old countess and Natasha blushed when they saw his looks.
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.
"Another verse," she said, without noticing Nicholas.
"I am so glad you've come!" said Natasha, without answering him.
And without noticing that he was singing, to strengthen the si he sung a second, a third below the high note.
He got up without saying a word and went downstairs to his own room.
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.
After Denisov's departure, Rostov spent another fortnight in Moscow, without going out of the house, waiting for the money his father could not at once raise, and he spent most of his time in the girls' room.
He filled the girls' albums with verses and music, and having at last sent Dolokhov the whole forty-three thousand rubles and received his receipt, he left at the end of November, without taking leave of any of his acquaintances, to overtake his regiment which was already in Poland.
Without undressing, he lay down on the leather sofa in front of a round table, put his big feet in their overboots on the table, and began to reflect.
Without changing his careless attitude, Pierre looked at them over his spectacles unable to understand what they wanted or how they could go on living without having solved the problems that so absorbed him.
Without changing his careless attitude, Pierre looked at them over his spectacles unable to understand what they wanted or how they could go on living without having solved the problems that so absorbed him.
The stranger sat without stirring, either resting or, as it seemed to Pierre, sunk in profound and calm meditation.
His servant was also a yellow, wrinkled old man, without beard or mustache, evidently not because he was shaven but because they had never grown.
Pierre looked at that aged, stern, motionless, almost lifeless face and moved his lips without uttering a sound.
"How about the horses?" he asked, without looking at Pierre.
"Can he really be going away leaving me alone without having told me all, and without promising to help me?" thought Pierre, rising with downcast head; and he began to pace the room, glancing occasionally at the Mason.
"I have come to you with a message and an offer, Count," he said without sitting down.
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.
The source of blessedness is not without us but within....
Pierre, perplexed, looked round with his shortsighted eyes without obeying, and suddenly doubts arose in his mind.
But before Prince Vasili had finished his playful speech, Pierre, without looking at him, and with a kind of fury that made him like his father, muttered in a whisper:
And Prince Vasili had to go without receiving any explanation.
Mind you gallop off to Korchevo without delay and carry out instructions!
He folded it up without reading it and reread his father's letter, ending with the words: "Gallop off to Korchevo and carry out instructions!"
Prince Andrew recognized her without looking and held out his hand to her.
What evil and error are there in it, if people were dying of disease without help while material assistance could so easily be rendered, and I supplied them with a doctor, a hospital, and an asylum for the aged?
I envy him, but you want to make him what I am, without giving him my means.
I'm alive, that is not my fault, so I must live out my life as best I can without hurting others.
One would sit without moving, undertaking nothing....
The old prince disputed it chaffingly, but without getting angry.
Denisov patted him on the shoulder and began rapidly pacing the room without looking at Rostov, as was his way at moments of deep feeling.
The case, as represented by the offended parties, was that, after seizing the transports, Major Denisov, being drunk, went to the chief quartermaster and without any provocation called him a thief, threatened to strike him, and on being led out had rushed into the office and given two officials a thrashing, and dislocated the arm of one of them.
In it was the petition to the Emperor drawn up by the auditor, in which Denisov, without alluding to the offenses of the commissariat officials, simply asked for pardon.
When he and Boris were alone, Rostov felt for the first time that he could not look Boris in the face without a sense of awkwardness.
He could not himself go to the general in attendance as he was in mufti and had come to Tilsit without permission to do so, and Boris, even had he wished to, could not have done so on the following day.
All is over between us, but I won't leave here without having done all I can for Denisov and certainly not without getting his letter to the Emperor.
Napoleon, without looking, pressed two fingers together and the badge was between them.
The process in his mind went on tormenting him without reaching a conclusion.
All the plans Pierre had attempted on his estates--and constantly changing from one thing to another had never accomplished--were carried out by Prince Andrew without display and without perceptible difficulty.
He had in the highest degree a practical tenacity which Pierre lacked, and without fuss or strain on his part this set things going.
The girl was shouting something but, seeing that he was a stranger, ran back laughing without looking at him.
"But where is it?" he again wondered, gazing at the left side of the road, and without recognizing it he looked with admiration at the very oak he sought.
Arakcheev turned his head toward him without looking at him.
"A member without salary," repeated Arakcheev.
Mon cher, even in this case you can't do without Michael Mikhaylovich Speranski.
Closing his eyes, he bowed a la francaise, without taking leave, and trying to attract as little attention as possible, he left the room.
He was told that it would not, and without waiting for the usual formalities he left the lodge and went home.
Without replying either to his wife or his mother-in-law, Pierre late one night prepared for a journey and started for Moscow to see Joseph Alexeevich.
Read the Scriptures, but without proper feeling.
In Petersburg they were provincials, and the very people they had entertained in Moscow without inquiring to what set they belonged, here looked down on them.
The count was so disconcerted by this long-foreseen inquiry that without consideration he gave the first reply that came into his head.
Berg smiled meekly, kissed the count on the shoulder, and said that he was very grateful, but that it was impossible for him to arrange his new life without receiving thirty thousand in ready money.
Natasha sat down and, without joining in Boris' conversation with the countess, silently and minutely studied her childhood's suitor.
In her behavior to her mother Natasha seemed rough, but she was so sensitive and tactful that however she clasped her mother she always managed to do it without hurting her or making her feel uncomfortable or displeased.
"Why not?" said Natasha, without changing her position.
"Don't do it without me!" called Natasha.
She smilingly raised her hand and laid it on his shoulder without looking at him.
It goes without saying that one must be conscientious and methodical.
She was sitting by her sister at the tea table, and reluctantly, without looking at him, made some reply to Boris who sat down beside her.
Everyone in the house realized for whose sake Prince Andrew came, and without concealing it he tried to be with Natasha all day.
At last I live, but I can't live without her!
After a few days they grew accustomed to him, and without restraint in his presence pursued their usual way of life, in which he took his part.
Religion alone can explain to us what without its help man cannot comprehend: why, for what cause, kind and noble beings able to find happiness in life--not merely harming no one but necessary to the happiness of others--are called away to God, while cruel, useless, harmful persons, or such as are a burden to themselves and to others, are left living.
He mustn't be without a stepmother either!
This comforting dream and hope were given her by God's folk-- the half-witted and other pilgrims who visited her without the prince's knowledge.
But in the spring of that year, he received a letter from his mother, written without his father's knowledge, and that letter persuaded him to return.
To throw off this burden as quickly as possible, on the third day after his arrival he went, angry and scowling and without answering questions as to where he was going, to Mitenka's lodge and demanded an account of everything.
On the fifteenth, when young Rostov, in his dressing gown, looked out of the window, he saw it was an unsurpassable morning for hunting: it was as if the sky were melting and sinking to the earth without any wind.
As soon as they had passed the fence they all spread out evenly and quietly, without noise or talk, along the road and field leading to the Otradnoe covert.
Natasha sat easily and confidently on her black Arabchik and reined him in without effort with a firm hand.
The height of happiness was reached--and so simply, without warning, or noise, or display, that Rostov could not believe his eyes and remained in doubt for over a second.
She ran without hurry, evidently feeling sure that no one saw her.
The huntsmen got the fox, but stayed there a long time without strapping it to the saddle.
"A full-grown one?" asked Ilagin as he approached the whip who had sighted the hare--and not without agitation he looked round and whistled to Erza.
He spoke without himself knowing whom to or what about.
At the same moment Natasha, without drawing breath, screamed joyously, ecstatically, and so piercingly that it set everyone's ear tingling.
Without looking at anyone, "Uncle" blew the dust off it and, tapping the case with his bony fingers, tuned the guitar and settled himself in his armchair.
They had not as many visitors as before, but the old habits of life without which the count and countess could not conceive of existence remained unchanged.
Though she blamed herself for it, she could not refrain from grumbling at and worrying Sonya, often pulling her up without reason, addressing her stiffly as "my dear," and using the formal "you" instead of the intimate "thou" in speaking to her.
Natasha came into the room, went up to Sonya, glanced at what she was doing, and then went up to her mother and stood without speaking.
She sat awhile, wondering what the meaning of it all having happened before could be, and without solving this problem, or at all regretting not having done so, she again passed in fancy to the time when she was with him and he was looking at her with a lover's eyes.
When they had undressed, but without washing off the cork mustaches, they sat a long time talking of their happiness.
Natasha began, and without replying to Sonya's words of comfort she got into bed, and long after her candle was out lay open-eyed and motionless, gazing at the moonlight through the frosty windowpanes.
Coldly, without looking at her son, she sent for her husband and, when he came, tried briefly and coldly to inform him of the facts, in her son's presence, but unable to restrain herself she burst into tears of vexation and left the room.
Sonya listened silently with downcast eyes to the countess' cruel words, without understanding what was required of her.
The countess, with a coldness her son had never seen in her before, replied that he was of age, that Prince Andrew was marrying without his father's consent, and he could do the same, but that she would never receive that intriguer as her daughter.
Natasha set to work to effect a reconciliation, and so far succeeded that Nicholas received a promise from his mother that Sonya should not be troubled, while he on his side promised not to undertake anything without his parents' knowledge.
There was never a dinner or soiree at the club without him.
Young ladies, married and unmarried, liked him because without making love to any of them, he was equally amiable to all, especially after supper.
He was only quite at ease when having poured several glasses of wine mechanically into his large mouth he felt a pleasant warmth in his body, an amiability toward all his fellows, and a readiness to respond superficially to every idea without probing it deeply.
She did not go out into society; everyone knew that her father would not let her go anywhere without him, and his failing health prevented his going out himself, so that she was not invited to dinners and evening parties.
But without finishing what she was saying, Princess Mary burst into tears.
"I don't know how to answer your question," he said, blushing without knowing why.
Boris began, wishing to sting her; but at that instant the galling thought occurred to him that he might have to leave Moscow without having accomplished his aim, and have vainly wasted his efforts--which was a thing he never allowed to happen.
You know not a day passes now without some new fashion....
Of course Prince Andrew is not a child and can shift without him, but it's not nice to enter a family against a father's will.
Natasha and Princess Mary looked at one another in silence, and the longer they did so without saying what they wanted to say, the greater grew their antipathy to one another.
When the count returned, Natasha was impolitely pleased and hastened to get away: at that moment she hated the stiff, elderly princess, who could place her in such an embarrassing position and had spent half an hour with her without once mentioning Prince Andrew.
Natasha glanced at her ironically without knowing why.
Dolokhov, who needed Anatole Kuragin's name, position, and connections as a bait to draw rich young men into his gambling set, made use of him and amused himself at his expense without letting the other feel it.
Natasha without saying anything stepped up to her father and looked at him with surprised inquiring eyes.
The Rostovs went away without staying for supper.
Only so could I be completely happy; but now I have to choose, and I can't be happy without either of them.
She probably opened the letter without knowing who it was from.
"But I can't live without him!" cried Natasha.
Dolokhov, without answering, took the cloak, threw it over Matrena, and wrapped her up in it.
"Marya Dmitrievna, for God's sake let me in to her!" she pleaded, but Marya Dmitrievna unlocked the door and went in without giving her an answer....
What troubles one has with these girls without their mother!
Have you heard she has broken off her engagement without consulting anybody?
Pierre without greeting his wife whom he had not seen since his return-- at that moment she was more repulsive to him than ever--entered the drawing room and seeing Anatole went up to him.
Having entered his study Pierre closed the door and addressed Anatole without looking at him.
"Thirdly," Pierre continued without listening to him, "you must never breathe a word of what has passed between you and Countess Rostova.
Pierre too when she had gone almost ran into the anteroom, restraining tears of tenderness and joy that choked him, and without finding the sleeves of his fur cloak threw it on and got into his sleigh.
Without each of these causes nothing could have happened.
Without lifting his head he said something, and two of his aides-de-camp galloped off to the Polish uhlans.
But the Emperor and Balashev passed out into the illuminated garden without noticing Arakcheev who, holding his sword and glancing wrathfully around, followed some twenty paces behind them.
To enter Russia without declaring war!
The noncommissioned officer began talking with his comrades about regimental matters without looking at the Russian general.
As soon as the King began to speak loud and fast his royal dignity instantly forsook him, and without noticing it he passed into his natural tone of good-natured familiarity.
Without moving from where he stood he began speaking in a louder tone and more hurriedly than before.
Yes, I know you have made peace with the Turks without obtaining Moldavia and Wallachia; I would have given your sovereign those provinces as I gave him Finland.
Napoleon, without giving them a glance, turned to Balashev:
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?
The boy, curly- headed like his mother and glowing with health, sat on his knee, and Prince Andrew began telling him the story of Bluebeard, but fell into a reverie without finishing the story.
Prince Andrew, without replying, put him down from his knee and went out of the room.
Give him real power, for war cannot be conducted successfully without unity of command, and he will show what he can do, as he did in Finland.
If our army is well organized and strong and has withdrawn to Drissa without suffering any defeats, we owe this entirely to Barclay.
Whatever question arose, a swarm of these drones, without having finished their buzzing on a previous theme, flew over to the new one and by their hum drowned and obscured the voices of those who were disputing honestly.
Without heeding the end of the Italian's remarks, and as though not hearing them, the Emperor, recognizing Bolkonski, addressed him graciously.
Rostov and Ilyin hastened to find a corner where they could change into dry clothes without offending Mary Hendrikhovna's modesty.
"But you take it without sugar?" she said, smiling all the time, as if everything she said and everything the others said was very amusing and had a double meaning.
Without greeting the officers, he scratched himself and asked to be allowed to pass as they were blocking the way.
But Rostov went off to his squadron without waiting for tea.
Now he rode beside Ilyin under the birch trees, occasionally plucking leaves from a branch that met his hand, sometimes touching his horse's side with his foot, or, without turning round, handing a pipe he had finished to an hussar riding behind him, with as calm and careless an air as though he were merely out for a ride.
As they took the places vacated by the uhlans, bullets came from the front, whining and whistling, but fell spent without taking effect.
Rostov, without waiting to hear him out, touched his horse, galloped to the front of his squadron, and before he had time to finish giving the word of command, the whole squadron, sharing his feeling, was following him.
He acted as he did when hunting, without reflecting or considering.
In another moment Rostov's horse dashed its breast against the hindquarters of the officer's horse, almost knocking it over, and at the same instant Rostov, without knowing why, raised his saber and struck the Frenchman with it.
When sent for by Count Ostermann, Rostov, remembering that he had charged without orders, felt sure his commander was sending for him to punish him for breach of discipline.
All that day and the next his friends and comrades noticed that Rostov, without being dull or angry, was silent, thoughtful, and preoccupied.
The doctors said that she could not get on without medical treatment, so they kept her in the stifling atmosphere of the town, and the Rostovs did not move to the country that summer of 1812.
She not merely avoided all external forms of pleasure--balls, promenades, concerts, and theaters--but she never laughed without a sound of tears in her laughter.
Without any need of self-restraint, no wish to coquet ever entered her head.
He frowned before his looking glass, gesticulated, shrugged his shoulders, and finally, without saying a word to anyone, took his cap and left the house by the back door, trying to avoid notice.
After standing some time in the gateway, Petya tried to move forward in front of the others without waiting for all the carriages to pass, and he began resolutely working his way with his elbows, but the woman just in front of him, who was the first against whom he directed his efforts, angrily shouted at him:
The assembled nobles all took off their uniforms and settled down again in their homes and clubs, and not without some groans gave orders to their stewards about the enrollment, feeling amazed themselves at what they had done.
One day he would order his camp bed to be set up in the glass gallery, another day he remained on the couch or on the lounge chair in the drawing room and dozed there without undressing, while--instead of Mademoiselle Bourienne--a serf boy read to him.
Yakov Alpatych heard without heeding.
Alpatych, without answering or looking at his host, sorted his packages and asked how much he owed.
Prince Andrew without replying took out a notebook and raising his knee began writing in pencil on a page he tore out.
Without waiting to hear him out, Prince Andrew asked:
The interpreter translated these words without the last phrase, and Bonaparte smiled.
She spent the night of the fourteenth as usual, without undressing, in the room next to the one where the prince lay.
In front of it stood carriages without horses and things were being packed into the vehicles.
Princess Mary listened without understanding him; she led him to the house, offered him lunch, and sat down with him.
Many of them were punished, some sent to Siberia, many died of cold and hunger on the road, many returned of their own accord, and the movement died down of itself just as it had sprung up, without apparent reason.
Dron was one of those physically and mentally vigorous peasants who grow big beards as soon as they are of age and go on unchanged till they are sixty or seventy, without a gray hair or the loss of a tooth, as straight and strong at sixty as at thirty.
Having wrung a submissive "I understand" from Dron, Alpatych contented himself with that, though he not only doubted but felt almost certain that without the help of troops the carts would not be forthcoming.
Without saying anything of this to the princess, Alpatych had his own belongings taken out of the carts which had arrived from Bald Hills and had those horses got ready for the princess' carriages.
Princess Mary looked at her companion without understanding what she was talking about.
As it is, some go three days without eating.
She was glad such cares presented themselves, enabling her without scruple to forget her own grief.
Some of the men bared their heads, others stared at the new arrivals without doffing their caps.
Rostov glanced angrily at Ilyin and without replying strode off with rapid steps to the village.
He said the peasants were obdurate and that at the present moment it would be imprudent to "overresist" them without an armed force, and would it not be better first to send for the military?
Without considering what he would do he moved unconciously with quick, resolute steps toward the crowd.
One can't get on without it.
It was said that Mamonov's regiment would cost him eight hundred thousand rubles, and that Bezukhov had spent even more on his, but that the best thing about Bezukhov's action was that he himself was going to don a uniform and ride at the head of his regiment without charging anything for the show.
"You spare no one," continued Julie to the young man without heeding the author's remark.
The stout man rose, frowned, shrugged his shoulders, and evidently trying to appear firm began to pull on his jacket without looking about him, but suddenly his lips trembled and he began to cry, in the way full-blooded grown-up men cry, though angry with himself for doing so.
To anyone who looks at the field of Borodino without thinking of how the battle was actually fought, this position, protected by the river Kolocha, presents itself as obvious for an army whose object was to prevent an enemy from advancing along the Smolensk road to Moscow.
Despite the presence of the commander-in-chief, who attracted the attention of all the superior officers, the militiamen and soldiers continued their prayers without looking at him.
Just then Boris, with his courtierlike adroitness, stepped up to Pierre's side near Kutuzov and in a most natural manner, without raising his voice, said to Pierre, as though continuing an interrupted conversation:
Bennigsen did not know this and moved the troops forward according to his own ideas without mentioning the matter to the commander-in-chief.
Now he suddenly saw those badly daubed pictures in clear daylight and without a glass.
Then all these Westphalians and Hessians whom Napoleon is leading would not follow him into Russia, and we should not go to fight in Austria and Prussia without knowing why.
With courtly adroitness de Beausset half turned and without turning his back to the Emperor retired two steps, twitching off the cloth at the same time, and said:
"Short and energetic!" he remarked when he had read over the proclamation which he had dictated straight off without corrections.
Having listened to a suggestion from Davout, who was now called Prince d'Eckmuhl, to turn the Russian left wing, Napoleon said it should not be done, without explaining why not.
"Without doubt, sire," replied Rapp.
Your excellency! he kept repeating pertinaciously while he shook Pierre by the shoulder without looking at him, having apparently lost hope of getting him to wake up.
"Grapeshot!" the senior shouted, without answering the question, looking over the wall of the trench.
The officer, without answering him, strode across to the opposite side.
The marshals and generals, who were nearer to the field of battle but, like Napoleon, did not take part in the actual fighting and only occasionally went within musket range, made their own arrangements without asking Napoleon and issued orders where and in what direction to fire and where cavalry should gallop and infantry should run.
The handsome boy adjutant with the long hair sighed deeply without removing his hand from his hat and galloped back to where men were being slaughtered.
Napoleon shrugged his shoulders and continued to pace up and down without replying.
Kutuzov, without looking at Wolzogen, gave directions for the order to be written out which the former commander-in-chief, to avoid personal responsibility, very judiciously wished to receive.
Without moving from that spot or firing a single shot the regiment here lost another third of its men.
"What is the connection of that man with my childhood and life?" he asked himself without finding an answer.
Kutuzov could not yet admit the possibility of retreating beyond Moscow without a battle.
Bennigsen, who had chosen the position, warmly displayed his Russian patriotism (Kutuzov could not listen to this without wincing) by insisting that Moscow must be defended.
He was convinced that he alone could maintain command of the army in these difficult circumstances, and that in all the world he alone could encounter the invincible Napoleon without fear, and he was horrified at the thought of the order he had to issue.
Is it better to give up Moscow without a battle, or by accepting battle to risk losing the army as well as Moscow?
At that very time, in circumstances even more important than retreating without a battle, namely the evacuation and burning of Moscow, Rostopchin, who is usually represented as being the instigator of that event, acted in an altogether different manner from Kutuzov.
The same thing that took place in Moscow had happened in all the towns and villages on Russian soil beginning with Smolensk, without the participation of Count Rostopchin and his broadsheets.
Helene was faced by a new problem--how to preserve her intimacy with both without offending either.
A venial sin, for you acted without evil intention.
Without going home, Pierre took a cab and drove to see the Moscow commander-in-chief.
"If he is accused of circulating Napoleon's proclamation it is not proved that he did so," said Pierre without looking at Rostopchin, "and Vereshchagin..."
"Why, nothing," answered Pierre without raising his eyes or changing the thoughtful expression of his face.
And going to his bed he threw himself on it without undressing and immediately fell asleep.
Without any pretense she was now afraid of everything.
Sonya and Natasha slept in the sitting room without undressing.
Flourishing his arms in despair the count left the room without replying.
The count stood by the window and listened without turning round.
And Dunyasha, with clenched teeth, without replying but with an aggrieved look on her face, hastily got into the coach to rearrange the seat.
Gerasim, being a servant who in his time had seen many strange things, accepted Pierre's taking up his residence in the house without surprise, and seemed pleased to have someone to wait on.
That same evening-- without even asking himself what they were wanted for--he procured a coachman's coat and cap for Pierre, and promised to get him the pistol next day.
The first troops started at once, and during the night they marched slowly and steadily without hurry.
Here and there a couple of bees, by force of habit and custom cleaning out the brood cells, with efforts beyond their strength laboriously drag away a dead bee or bumblebee without knowing why they do it.
In another corner two old bees are languidly fighting, or cleaning themselves, or feeding one another, without themselves knowing whether they do it with friendly or hostile intent.
But there were no dealers with voices of ingratiating affability inviting customers to enter; there were no hawkers, nor the usual motley crowd of female purchasers--but only soldiers, in uniforms and overcoats though without muskets, entering the Bazaar empty-handed and silently making their way out through its passages with bundles.
The general orders them all to be driven out at once, without fail.
Where?... he shouted to three infantrymen without muskets who, holding up the skirts of their overcoats, were slipping past him into the Bazaar passage.
How can one do without government?
After supper he lay down on a sofa without undressing, and was awakened soon after midnight by a courier bringing him a letter from Kutuzov.
Since the world began and men have killed one another no one has ever committed such a crime against his fellow man without comforting himself with this same idea.
I shall not give up Moscow without a battle!
The unaccustomed coarse food, the vodka he drank during those days, the absence of wine and cigars, his dirty unchanged linen, two almost sleepless nights passed on a short sofa without bedding--all this kept him in a state of excitement bordering on insanity.
Without taking leave of his new friend, Pierre left the gate with unsteady steps and returning to his room lay down on the sofa and immediately fell asleep.
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.
When he had reached the fence, still without finding those he sought, he stopped and looked about him.
And without knowing how this aimless lie had escaped him, he went along with resolute and triumphant steps between the French soldiers.
And at once, without leaving the church, thanks were rendered to the Creator for His help and for the victory.
"Have they surrendered my ancient capital without a battle?" asked the Emperor quickly, his face suddenly flushing.
The tales and descriptions of that time without exception speak only of the self-sacrifice, patriotic devotion, despair, grief, and the heroism of the Russians.
With the naive conviction of young men in a merry mood that other men's wives were created for them, Rostov did not leave the lady's side and treated her husband in a friendly and conspiratorial style, as if, without speaking of it, they knew how capitally Nicholas and the lady would get on together.
Either black is particularly becoming to her or she really has greatly improved without my having noticed it.
But he never thought about her as he had thought of all the young ladies without exception whom he had met in society, nor as he had for a long time, and at one time rapturously, thought about Sonya.
As had occurred before when she was present, Nicholas went up to her without waiting to be prompted by the governor's wife and not asking himself whether or not it was right and proper to address her here in church, and told her he had heard of her trouble and sympathized with his whole soul.
Why do you come in without being called? cried Nicholas, quickly changing his attitude.
Without raising his eyes, he said in a low voice:
On the faces of all the Russians and of the French soldiers and officers without exception, he read the same dismay, horror, and conflict that were in his own heart.
Without finishing what he had begun to say he made a hopeless movement with his arm and went away.
Without understanding what was said to him, Pierre got up and went with the soldiers.
He looked at them without understanding who they were, why they were there, or what they wanted of him.
And here we live, thank heaven, without offense.
And indeed he only had to lie down, to fall asleep like a stone, and he only had to shake himself, to be ready without a moment's delay for some work, just as children are ready to play directly they awake.
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.
Hard as she had tried to prepare herself, and now tried to remain tranquil, she knew that she would be unable to look at him without tears.
When Princess Mary began to cry, he understood that she was crying at the thought that little Nicholas would be left without a father.
Without haste or agitation he awaited what was coming.
He looked at her without moving and saw that she wanted to draw a deep breath after stooping, but refrained from doing so and breathed cautiously.
And without considering the multiplicity and complexity of the conditions any one of which taken separately may seem to be the cause, he snatches at the first approximation to a cause that seems to him intelligible and says: "This is the cause!"
If instead of imagining to ourselves commanders of genius leading the Russian army, we picture that army without any leaders, it could not have done anything but make a return movement toward Moscow, describing an arc in the direction where most provisions were to be found and where the country was richest.
Following the wounded hare he made his way far into the forest and came upon the left flank of Murat's army, encamped there without any precautions.
The officer searched till six o'clock in the evening without even stopping to eat.
Ermolov came forward with a frown on his face and, hearing what the officer had to say, took the papers from him without a word.
Without replying, the sergeant, with a resolute air, mounted and rode away with Grekov whose men had quickly assembled.
Had the Cossacks pursued the French, without heeding what was behind and around them, they would have captured Murat and everything there.
All this had to be dealt with, the prisoners and guns secured, the booty divided--not without some shouting and even a little fighting among themselves--and it was on this that the Cossacks all busied themselves.
Coming out onto a field under the enemy's fire, this brave general went straight ahead, leading his men under fire, without considering in his agitation whether going into action now, with a single division, would be of any use or no.
He remained in Moscow till October, letting the troops plunder the city; then, hesitating whether to leave a garrison behind him, he quitted Moscow, approached Kutuzov without joining battle, turned to the right and reached Malo-Yaroslavets, again without attempting to break through and take the road Kutuzov took, but retiring instead to Mozhaysk along the devastated Smolensk road.
And lastly you too, peasants, come from the forests where you are hiding in terror, return to your huts without fear, in full assurance that you will find protection!
The Frenchman, having pushed his head and hands through, without raising his eyes, looked down at the shirt and examined the seams.
Pierre saw that Platon did not want to understand what the Frenchman was saying, and he looked on without interfering.
And now without thinking about it he had found that peace and inner harmony only through the horror of death, through privation, and through what he recognized in Karataev.
But Pierre believed it without any mental reservation.
"Pass on, pass on!" he continued without looking at Pierre.
They marched very quickly, without resting, and halted only when the sun began to set.
From whom? he asked immediately but without hurry, blinking at the light.
In battle he was always under fire, so that Kutuzov reproved him for it and feared to send him to the front, and like Dokhturov he was one of those unnoticed cogwheels that, without clatter or noise, constitute the most essential part of the machine.
He often fell asleep unexpectedly in the daytime, but at night, lying on his bed without undressing, he generally remained awake thinking.
Everywhere Kutuzov retreated, but the enemy without waiting for his retreat fled in the opposite direction.
What is the use of that, when a third of their army has melted away on the road from Moscow to Vyazma without any battle?
Its first period had passed: when the partisans themselves, amazed at their own boldness, feared every minute to be surrounded and captured by the French, and hid in the forests without unsaddling, hardly daring to dismount and always expecting to be pursued.
Having arranged matters thus, Denisov and Dolokhov intended, without reporting matters to the higher command, to attack and seize that convoy with their own small forces.
Since then, and until evening, the party had watched the movements of the French without attacking.
It was necessary to let the French reach Shamshevo quietly without alarming them and then, after joining Dolokhov who was to come that evening to a consultation at a watchman's hut in the forest less than a mile from Shamshevo, to surprise the French at dawn, falling like an avalanche on their heads from two sides, and rout and capture them all at one blow.
He took off his wet felt cloak in a corner of the room, and without greeting anyone went up to Denisov and began questioning him about the matter in hand.
We can't start the affair without knowing for certain how many there are.
And without waiting for an answer from the sentinel, who had stepped aside, Dolokhov rode up the incline at a walk.
When they had descended to the bridge Petya and Dolokhov rode past the sentinel, who without saying a word paced morosely up and down it, then they descended into the hollow where the Cossacks awaited them.
Some fellows do things just anyhow, without preparation, and then they're sorry for it afterwards.
"Wait?... Hurrah-ah-ah!" shouted Petya, and without pausing a moment galloped to the place whence came the sounds of firing and where the smoke was thickest.
After the second day's march Pierre, having examined his feet by the campfire, thought it would be impossible to walk on them; but when everybody got up he went along, limping, and, when he had warmed up, walked without feeling the pain, though at night his feet were more terrible to look at than before.
And without linking up the events of the day or drawing a conclusion from them, Pierre closed his eyes, seeing a vision of the country in summertime mingled with memories of bathing and of the liquid, vibrating globe, and he sank into water so that it closed over his head.
They all went without knowing whither or why they were going.
Half the men fell out of the army without a battle.
Kutuzov merely shrugged his shoulders when one after another they presented projects of maneuvers to be made with those soldiers-- ill-shod, insufficiently clad, and half starved--who within a month and without fighting a battle had dwindled to half their number, and who at the best if the flight continued would have to go a greater distance than they had already traversed, before they reached the frontier.
Kutuzov replied: "And I shall not abandon Moscow without a battle," though Moscow was then already abandoned.
His actions--without the smallest deviation--were all directed to one and the same threefold end: (1) to brace all his strength for conflict with the French, (2) to defeat them, and (3) to drive them out of Russia, minimizing as far as possible the sufferings of our people and of our army.
Everything was done without any orders being given.
He was alone in a strange town, without acquaintances.
All his life he had looked over the heads of the men around him, when he should have merely looked in front of him without straining his eyes.
To that question, "What for?" a simple answer was now always ready in his soul: "Because there is a God, that God without whose will not one hair falls from a man's head."
"Yes, in these days it would be hard to live without faith..." remarked Princess Mary.
Natasha without waiting for Princess Mary to finish again looked inquiringly at Pierre.
And then such a death... without friends and without consolation!
We lived under the late count--the kingdom of heaven be his!--and we have lived under you too, without ever being wronged.
Pierre's insanity consisted in not waiting, as he used to do, to discover personal attributes which he termed "good qualities" in people before loving them; his heart was now overflowing with love, and by loving people without cause he discovered indubitable causes for loving them.
Impregnable Malta surrenders without a shot; his most reckless schemes are crowned with success.
The man who had devastated France returns to France alone, without any conspiracy and without soldiers.
The countess passed a fortnight in an armchair by his pillow without undressing.

Within four years he had paid off all his remaining debts without selling any of his wife's property, and having received a small inheritance on the death of a cousin he paid his debt to Pierre as well.
When a decision had to be taken regarding a domestic serf, especially if one had to be punished, he always felt undecided and consulted everybody in the house; but when it was possible to have a domestic serf conscripted instead of a land worker he did so without the least hesitation.
Having taken precautions against the general drunkenness to be expected on the morrow because it was a great saint's day, he returned to dinner, and without having time for a private talk with his wife sat down at the long table laid for twenty persons, at which the whole household had assembled.
But today she quite forgot that and was hurt that he should be angry with her without any reason, and she felt unhappy.
And without a word to his wife he went to the little sitting room and lay down on the sofa.
Having sat awhile with her visitors without understanding anything of what they were saying, she softly left the room and went to the nursery.
Without you, or when something comes between us like this, I seem lost and can't do anything.
Having abandoned the conception of the ancients as to the divine subjection of the will of a nation to some chosen man and the subjection of that man's will to the Deity, history cannot without contradictions take a single step till it has chosen one of two things: either a return to the former belief in the direct intervention of the Deity in human affairs or a definite explanation of the meaning of the force producing historical events and termed "power."
For us that movement of the peoples from west to east, without leaders, with a crowd of vagrants, and with Peter the Hermit, remains incomprehensible.
Not to speak of the fact that no description of the collective activity of men can do without the conception of power, the existence of power is proved both by history and by observing contemporary events.
Without admitting divine intervention in the affairs of humanity we cannot regard "power" as the cause of events.
Without such justification there would be no reply to the simplest question that presents itself when examining each historical event.
He feels that however impossible it may be, it is so, for without this conception of freedom not only would he be unable to understand life, but he would be unable to live for a single moment.
In actual life each historic event, each human action, is very clearly and definitely understood without any sense of contradiction, although each event presents itself as partly free and partly compulsory.
All cases without exception in which our conception of freedom and necessity is increased and diminished depend on three considerations:
But in the Crusades we already see an event occupying its definite place in history and without which we cannot imagine the modern history of Europe, though to the chroniclers of the Crusades that event appeared as merely due to the will of certain people.
Without answering, he headed for the fireplace and opened the wood box.
She laughed without humor.
Without waiting for her to reply, he strode away, pausing only long enough to shrug into his denim jacket.

At that time I eagerly absorbed everything I read without a thought of authorship, and even now I cannot be quite sure of the boundary line between my ideas and those I find in books.
As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.
No way of thinking or doing, however ancient, can be trusted without proof.
It was very pleasant, when I stayed late in town, to launch myself into the night, especially if it was dark and tempestuous, and set sail from some bright village parlor or lecture room, with a bag of rye or Indian meal upon my shoulder, for my snug harbor in the woods, having made all tight without and withdrawn under hatches with a merry crew of thoughts, leaving only my outer man at the helm, or even tying up the helm when it was plain sailing.
They speak of moving society, but have no resting-place without it.
"It is the Buonapartists who say that," replied the vicomte without looking at Pierre.
Old Rostov could not tell his wife of what had passed without tears, and at once consented to Petya's request and went himself to enter his name.
What for a long while specially surprised and delighted him were the women, young and healthy, without a dozen officers making up to each of them; women, too, who were pleased and flattered that a passing officer should joke with them.
If only you could see what I was like without you, how I suffered!
But the father whom the boy did not remember appeared to him a divinity who could not be pictured, and of whom he never thought without a swelling heart and tears of sadness and rapture.
After the deaths of her son and husband in such rapid succession, she felt herself a being accidentally forgotten in this world and left without aim or object for her existence.
* Without faith or law.
Natasha and Pierre, left alone, also began to talk as only a husband and wife can talk, that is, with extraordinary clearness and rapidity, understanding and expressing each other's thoughts in ways contrary to all rules of logic, without premises, deductions, or conclusions, and in a quite peculiar way.
Besides, when I was in Petersburg I felt (I can say this to you) that the whole affair would go to pieces without me--everyone was pulling his own way.
This conception is the one handle by means of which the material of history, as at present expounded, can be dealt with, and anyone who breaks that handle off, as Buckle did, without finding some other method of treating historical material, merely deprives himself of the one possible way of dealing with it.
They can be used and can circulate and fulfill their purpose without harm to anyone and even advantageously, as long as no one asks what is the security behind them.
However inaccessible to us may be the cause of the expression of will in any action, our own or another's, the first demand of reason is the assumption of and search for a cause, for without a cause no phenomenon is conceivable.
And so the conception of the action of a man subject solely to the law of inevitability without any element of freedom is just as impossible as the conception of a man's completely free action.
In the first case, if inevitability were possible without freedom we should have reached a definition of inevitability by the laws of inevitability itself, that is, a mere form without content.
In the second case, if freedom were possible without inevitability we should have arrived at unconditioned freedom beyond space, time, and cause, which by the fact of its being unconditioned and unlimited would be nothing, or mere content without form.
Inevitability without content is man's reason in its three forms.

Without looking away, he addressed his request to Connie.
