She heard him talking to his mother and she heard his conversation with the man in the black car.
The doorbell rang and she felt a rush of panic when she heard Sarah answer the door.
As she was walking down the hall, she heard her name mentioned.

There was another famous artist whose name was Parrhasius. When he heard of the boast which Zeuxis had made, he said to himself, "I will see what I can do."

I have just heard something that surprised me very much.
It seems that Mr. Anagnos had heard of Helen before he received Captain Keller's letter last summer.
I heard Helen screaming, and ran down to see what was the matter.
Everything we have seen and heard is in the mind somewhere.
He had never heard of "talking-gloves"; but I explained that she had seen a glove on which the alphabet was printed, and evidently thought they could be bought.
She would turn her head, smile, and act as though she had heard what was said.
This was the first time that she had heard the word.
As I had never heard it, I inquired of several of my friends if they recalled the words; no one seemed to remember it.

He had never heard of such things before.
It was the only open and cultivated field for a great distance on either side of the road, so they made the most of it; and sometimes the man in the field heard more of travellers' gossip and comment than was meant for his ear: "Beans so late! peas so late!"--for I continued to plant when others had begun to hoe--the ministerial husbandman had not suspected it.
When I paused to lean on my hoe, these sounds and sights I heard and saw anywhere in the row, a part of the inexhaustible entertainment which the country offers.
As I walked in the woods to see the birds and squirrels, so I walked in the village to see the men and boys; instead of the wind among the pines I heard the carts rattle.

Perhaps on that spring morning when Adam and Eve were driven out of Eden Walden Pond was already in existence, and even then breaking up in a gentle spring rain accompanied with mist and a southerly wind, and covered with myriads of ducks and geese, which had not heard of the fall, when still such pure lakes sufficed them.
That devilish Iron Horse, whose ear-rending neigh is heard throughout the town, has muddied the Boiling Spring with his foot, and he it is that has browsed off all the woods on Walden shore, that Trojan horse, with a thousand men in his belly, introduced by mercenary Greeks!

But now the kind October wind rises, rustling the leaves and rippling the surface of the water, so that no loon can be heard or seen, though his foes sweep the pond with spy-glasses, and make the woods resound with their discharges.
One old frequenter of these woods remembers, that as he passed her house one noon he heard her muttering to herself over her gurgling pot--"Ye are all bones, bones!"
Here then men saluted one another, and heard and told the news, and went their ways again.
One night in the beginning of winter, before the pond froze over, about nine o'clock, I was startled by the loud honking of a goose, and, stepping to the door, heard the sound of their wings like a tempest in the woods as they flew low over my house.
I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and had dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.
In dark winter mornings, or in short winter afternoons, I sometimes heard a pack of hounds threading all the woods with hounding cry and yelp, unable to resist the instinct of the chase, and the note of the hunting-horn at intervals, proving that man was in the rear.
Late in the afternoon, as he was resting in the thick woods south of Walden, he heard the voice of the hounds far over toward Fair Haven still pursuing the fox; and on they came, their hounding cry which made all the woods ring sounding nearer and nearer, now from Well Meadow, now from the Baker Farm.
On the 13th of March, after I had heard the bluebird, song sparrow, and red-wing, the ice was still nearly a foot thick.
The faint silvery warblings were heard over the partially bare and moist fields from the bluebird, the song sparrow, and the red-wing, as if the last flakes of winter tinkled as they fell!
The sinking sound of melting snow is heard in all dells, and the ice dissolves apace in the ponds.
I heard a robin in the distance, the first I had heard for many a thousand years, methought, whose note I shall not forget for many a thousand more--the same sweet and powerful song as of yore.
For a week I heard the circling, groping clangor of some solitary goose in the foggy mornings, seeking its companion, and still peopling the woods with the sound of a larger life than they could sustain.
On the third or fourth of May I saw a loon in the pond, and during the first week of the month I heard the whip-poor-will, the brown thrasher, the veery, the wood pewee, the chewink, and other birds.
I had heard the wood thrush long before.
The buckeye does not grow in New England, and the mockingbird is rarely heard here.
Who that has heard a strain of music feared then lest he should speak extravagantly any more forever?
But the jailer said, "Come, boys, it is time to lock up"; and so they dispersed, and I heard the sound of their steps returning into the hollow apartments.
It seemed to me that I never had heard the town-clock strike before, nor the evening sounds of the village; for we slept with the windows open, which were inside the grating.
"From what I have heard," said Pierre, blushing and breaking into the conversation, "almost all the aristocracy has already gone over to Bonaparte's side."
I have heard that it harms the voice to train it at that age.
Countess Apraksina... was heard on all sides.
At the ladies' end an even chatter of voices was heard all the time, at the men's end the voices sounded louder and louder, especially that of the colonel of hussars who, growing more and more flushed, ate and drank so much that the count held him up as a pattern to the other guests.
He had not finished the last verse before the young people began to get ready to dance in the large hall, and the sound of the feet and the coughing of the musicians were heard from the gallery.
The chanting of the service ceased, and the voice of the priest was heard respectfully congratulating the dying man on having received the sacrament.
Pierre heard her say:
"Catch hold of my arm or you'll drop him!" he heard one of the servants say in a frightened whisper.
"Why don't you speak, cousin?" suddenly shrieked the princess so loud that those in the drawing room heard her and were startled.
You should have seen the state of the mothers, wives, and children of the men who were going and should have heard the sobs.
Princess Mary could not understand the boldness of her brother's criticism and was about to reply, when the expected footsteps were heard coming from the study.
This very sentence about Countess Zubova and this same laugh Prince Andrew had already heard from his wife in the presence of others some five times.
It was calm, and at intervals the bugle calls and the shouts of the enemy could be heard from the hill.
Some of them were talking (he heard Russian words), others were eating bread; the more severely wounded looked silently, with the languid interest of sick children, at the envoy hurrying past them.
We heard reports that Prince Auersperg was defending Vienna? he said.
Everywhere he saw friendly looks and heard friendly words.
I heard nothing there.
He heard the cannonade behind him growing louder and more frequent.
Prince Bagration, having reached the highest point of our right flank, began riding downhill to where the roll of musketry was heard but where on account of the smoke nothing could be seen.
But at the moment the first report was heard, Bagration looked round and shouted, "Hurrah!"
"If only they would be quick!" thought Rostov, feeling that at last the time had come to experience the joy of an attack of which he had so often heard from his fellow hussars.
Shots could be heard, but some way off.
"What do you want, your honor?" asked an artilleryman, standing close by, who heard him muttering.
Amid the general rumble, the groans and voices of the wounded were more distinctly heard than any other sound in the darkness of the night.
From all sides were heard the footsteps and talk of the infantry, who were walking, driving past, and settling down all around.
He had not seen the hussars all that day, but had heard about them from an infantry officer.
At one end of the table, the old chamberlain was heard assuring an old baroness that he loved her passionately, at which she laughed; at the other could be heard the story of the misfortunes of some Mary Viktorovna or other.
Suddenly he heard a familiar voice repeating something to him a second time.
"The step must be taken but I cannot, I cannot!" thought Pierre, and he again began speaking about indifferent matters, about Sergey Kuzmich, asking what the point of the story was as he had not heard it properly.
I heard, your honor, that a minister is coming to visit your honor.
Oh!" and she shook her finger at him, "I have even heard of your doings in Paris!"
Mademoiselle Bourienne knew a story, heard from her aunt but finished in her own way, which she liked to repeat to herself.
Tikhon, half asleep, heard him pacing angrily about and snorting.
At first he heard the sound of indifferent voices, then Anna Mikhaylovna's voice alone in a long speech, then a cry, then silence, then both voices together with glad intonations, and then footsteps.
When she heard this Sonya blushed so that tears came into her eyes and, unable to bear the looks turned upon her, ran away into the dancing hall, whirled round it at full speed with her dress puffed out like a balloon, and, flushed and smiling, plumped down on the floor.
Alarmed voices were heard, and a stir of final preparation swept over all the troops.
One voice was heard shouting: "Eyes front!"
But it was the first time he had heard Weyrother's name, or even the term "dispositions."
He was breathless with agitation, his face was red, and when he heard some French spoken he at once began speaking to the officers, addressing first one, then another.
The Emperor! was suddenly heard among the hussars.
And as if in accord with Rostov's feeling, there was a deathly stillness amid which was heard the Emperor's voice.
Rostov saw tears filling the Emperor's eyes and heard him, as he was riding away, say to Czartoryski: What a terrible thing war is: what a terrible thing!
But they heard him at the council of war and will hear him when he talks sense, but to temporize and wait for something now when Bonaparte fears nothing so much as a general battle is impossible.
He asked Weyrother several times to repeat words he had not clearly heard and the difficult names of villages.
You have heard them, and we shall all do our duty.
At the moment he opened his eyes he heard in front of him, where the enemy was, the long-drawn shouts of thousands of voices.
L'Empereur! he now heard distinctly.
Having descended the hill at a trot, he no longer saw either our own or the enemy's fires, but heard the shouting of the French more loudly and distinctly.
In front in the fog a shot was heard and then another, at first irregularly at varying intervals--trata... tat--and then more and more regularly and rapidly, and the action at the Goldbach Stream began.
From information he had received the evening before, from the sound of wheels and footsteps heard by the outposts during the night, by the disorderly movement of the Russian columns, and from all indications, he saw clearly that the allies believed him to be far away in front of them, and that the columns moving near Pratzen constituted the center of the Russian army, and that that center was already sufficiently weakened to be successfully attacked.
Just then at a distance behind Kutuzov was heard the sound of regiments saluting, and this sound rapidly came nearer along the whole extended line of the advancing Russian columns.
The Tsar heard but obviously did not like the reply; he shrugged his rather round shoulders and glanced at Novosiltsev who was near him, as if complaining of Kutuzov.
But at that very instant a cloud of smoke spread all round, firing was heard quite close at hand, and a voice of naive terror barely two steps from Prince Andrew shouted, Brothers!
He heard the whistle of bullets above him unceasingly and to right and left of him soldiers continually groaned and dropped.
Rostov heard the thud of their hoofs and the jingle of their weapons and saw their horses, their figures, and even their faces, more and more distinctly.
Rostov could already see their faces and heard the command: "Charge!" shouted by an officer who was urging his thoroughbred to full speed.
Hardly had the Horse Guards passed Rostov before he heard them shout, "Hurrah!" and looking back saw that their foremost ranks were mixed up with some foreign cavalry with red epaulets, probably French.
Suddenly he heard musket fire quite close in front of him and behind our troops, where he could never have expected the enemy to be.
After five o'clock it was only at the Augesd Dam that a hot cannonade (delivered by the French alone) was still to be heard from numerous batteries ranged on the slopes of the Pratzen Heights, directed at our retreating forces.
And cries of horror were heard in the crowd.
He listened and heard the sound of approaching horses, and voices speaking French.
He heard the speaker addressed as Sire.
But he heard the words as he might have heard the buzzing of a fly.
The first words he heard on coming to his senses were those of a French convoy officer, who said rapidly: "We must halt here: the Emperor will pass here immediately; it will please him to see these gentlemen prisoners."
But now steps were heard at the door, steps so rapid that they could hardly be his mother's.
Natasha's voice was again heard at the door.
A light footstep and the clinking of spurs were heard at the door, and the young count, handsome, rosy, with a dark little mustache, evidently rested and made sleeker by his easy life in Moscow, entered the room.
On all sides, new and fresh anecdotes were heard of individual examples of heroism shown by our officers and men at Austerlitz.
Young Rostov's ecstatic voice could be heard above the three hundred others.
He only heard Dolokhov's hurried steps, and his figure came in view through the smoke.
At the same instant they heard a report and Dolokhov's angry cry.
He flung down the slab, broke it, and swooping down on her with outstretched hands shouted, "Get out!" in such a terrible voice that the whole house heard it with horror.
The gazettes from which the old prince first heard of the defeat at Austerlitz stated, as usual very briefly and vaguely, that after brilliant engagements the Russians had had to retreat and had made their withdrawal in perfect order.
Oh! she heard as she left the room.
Five minutes later Princess Mary from her room heard something heavy being carried by.
Only when footsteps or voices were heard did they look at one another, the princess anxious and inquiring, the nurse encouraging.
Prince Andrew ran to the door; the scream ceased and he heard the wail of an infant.
Denisov bent over her hand and she heard strange sounds she did not understand.
At this instant, they heard the quick rustle of the countess' dress.
Pierre gave no answer, for he neither heard nor saw anything.
Loud knocks were heard at the door.
He heard those around him disputing in whispers and one of them insisting that he should be led along a certain carpet.
On the previous evening at the Lodge, he had heard that a rumor of his duel had reached the Emperor and that it would be wiser for him to leave Petersburg.
Everywhere one heard curses on Bonaparte, "the enemy of mankind."
Suddenly he thought he heard a strange noise through the door.
"My dear," he heard what seemed to him her despairing whisper behind him.
He heard a rustle behind him and a shadow appeared under the curtain of the cot.
"Ask him to wait," and the sound was heard of a chair being pushed back.
"I was very much surprised when I heard of it," said Prince Andrew.
You heard of the duel?
Suddenly he heard Denisov shouting in a vibrating voice behind the hut, evidently much excited.
Then Denisov's voice was heard shouting farther and farther away.
"Let God and our gweat monarch judge me afterwards!" said Denisov going out, and Rostov heard the hoofs of several horses splashing through the mud.
My neighbor, he added, when he heard who Rostov wanted.
Rostov noticed by their faces that all those gentlemen had already heard that story more than once and were tired of it.
I have heard of such cases and know that His Majesty is very severe in such affairs.
At that moment Zhilinski's voice was heard calling Boris.
Having heard Rostov to the end, the general shook his head gravely.
Hardly had Rostov handed him the letter and finished explaining Denisov's case, when hasty steps and the jingling of spurs were heard on the stairs, and the general, leaving him, went to the porch.
Stopping beside his horse, with his hand on the saddle, the Emperor turned to the cavalry general and said in a loud voice, evidently wishing to be heard by all:
"Have you heard the password?" asked one Guards' officer of another.
He heard merry girlish cries behind some trees on the right and saw a group of girls running to cross the path of his caleche.
He heard female voices overhead.
Sonya! he again heard the first speaker.
He heard the sound of a scuffle and Sonya's disapproving voice: "It's past one o'clock."
From time to time he heard a soft rustle and at times a sigh.
He did not know Arakcheev personally, had never seen him, and all he had heard of him inspired him with but little respect for the man.
Then suddenly the grating sound of a harsh voice was heard from the other side of the door, and the officer--with pale face and trembling lips--came out and passed through the waiting room, clutching his head.
I had heard of you, as everyone has, he said after a pause.
No one has ever heard him utter a groan or a word of complaint.
After dinner I fell asleep and as I was drowsing off I clearly heard a voice saying in my left ear, "Thy day!"
When she heard of his arrival she almost ran into the drawing room, flushed and beaming with a more than cordial smile.
Natasha heard and felt that several people were asking about her and looking at her.
He kept criticizing his own work, as he often did, and was glad when he heard someone coming.
He had just heard particulars of that morning's sitting of the Council of State opened by the Emperor, and he spoke of it enthusiastically.
While still in the anteroom Prince Andrew heard loud voices and a ringing staccato laugh--a laugh such as one hears on the stage.
Prince Andrew had never before heard Speranski's famous laugh, and this ringing, high-pitched laughter from a statesman made a strange impression on him.
She knew this for certain, though she hardly heard his voice through the closed doors.
The village elder, a peasant delegate, and the village clerk, who were waiting in the passage, heard with fear and delight first the young count's voice roaring and snapping and rising louder and louder, and then words of abuse, dreadful words, ejaculated one after the other.
The countess, who heard at once from the maids what had happened at the lodge, was calmed by the thought that now their affairs would certainly improve, but on the other hand felt anxious as to the effect this excitement might have on her son.
After the cry of the hounds came the deep tones of the wolf call from Daniel's hunting horn; the pack joined the first three hounds and they could be heard in full cry, with that peculiar lift in the note that indicates that they are after a wolf.
After listening a few moments in silence, the count and his attendant convinced themselves that the hounds had separated into two packs: the sound of the larger pack, eagerly giving tongue, began to die away in the distance, the other pack rushed by the wood past the count, and it was with this that Daniel's voice was heard calling ulyulyu.
Involuntarily Rostov recalled all the good he had heard about him from his father and the neighbors.
They could not see the horses, but only heard them splashing through the unseen mud.
And Nicholas heard her spontaneous, happy, ringing laughter.
Natasha and Nicholas often noticed their parents conferring together anxiously and privately and heard suggestions of selling the fine ancestral Rostov house and estate near Moscow.
Sing me something, they heard the countess say.
The whistling sound of the runners on the snow and the voices of girls shrieking were heard from different sides.
They were quietly dropping melted wax into snow and looking at the shadows the wax figures would throw on the wall, when they heard the steps and voices of new arrivals in the vestibule.
From the back porch came the sound of feet descending the steps, the bottom step upon which snow had fallen gave a ringing creak and he heard the voice of an old maidservant saying, Straight, straight, along the path, Miss.
She sat a long time looking at the receding line of candles reflected in the glasses and expecting (from tales she had heard) to see a coffin, or him, Prince Andrew, in that last dim, indistinctly outlined square.
Sonya heard this and Natasha's whisper:
Sonya had not seen anything, she was just wanting to blink and to get up when she heard Natasha say, "Of course she will!"
Sometimes he remembered how he had heard that soldiers in war when entrenched under the enemy's fire, if they have nothing to do, try hard to find some occupation the more easily to bear the danger.
At first she heard only Metivier's voice, then her father's, then both voices began speaking at the same time, the door was flung open, and on the threshold appeared the handsome figure of the terrified Metivier with his shock of black hair, and the prince in his dressing gown and fez, his face distorted with fury and the pupils of his eyes rolled downwards.
Yes, I heard something: he said something awkward in His Majesty's presence.
He began speaking louder, evidently to be heard by everyone.
Princess Mary as she sat listening to the old men's talk and faultfinding, understood nothing of what she heard; she only wondered whether the guests had all observed her father's hostile attitude toward her.
After five minutes of irksome, constrained conversation, they heard the sound of slippered feet rapidly approaching.
"Oh yes, I heard it today," said Shinshin, coming into the Rostovs' box.
While conversing with Pierre, Natasha heard a man's voice in Countess Bezukhova's box and something told her it was Kuragin.
I have already heard much of you in Petersburg and wanted to get to know you, said she to Natasha with her stereotyped and lovely smile.
I had heard about you from my page, Drubetskoy.
Have you heard he is getting married?
But suddenly a storm came on, chromatic scales and diminished sevenths were heard in the orchestra, everyone ran off, again dragging one of their number away, and the curtain dropped.
She did not know what to say and turned away as if she had not heard his remark.
Natasha blushed scarlet when she heard this.
"Adorable! divine! delicious!" was heard from every side.
Natasha looked at the fat actress, but neither saw nor heard nor understood anything of what went on before her.
Burning lips were pressed to hers, and at the same instant she felt herself released, and Helene's footsteps and the rustle of her dress were heard in the room.
I had heard that it happens like this, and you must have heard it too, but it's only now that I feel such love.
I have heard what elopements are like, continued Dolokhov with a wink.
On the Arbat Square the troyka caught against a carriage; something cracked, shouts were heard, and the troyka flew along the Arbat Street.
Have you heard she has broken off her engagement without consulting anybody?
One of Pierre's acquaintances, while they were talking about the weather, asked if he had heard of Kuragin's abduction of Rostova which was talked of in the town, and was it true?
Pierre dined at the club that day and heard on all sides gossip about the attempted abduction of Rostova.
Old Prince Bolkonski heard all the rumors current in the town from Mademoiselle Bourienne and had read the note to Princess Mary in which Natasha had broken off her engagement.
As soon as he reached Moscow, Prince Andrew had received from his father Natasha's note to Princess Mary breaking off her engagement (Mademoiselle Bourienne had purloined it from Princess Mary and given it to the old prince), and he heard from him the story of Natasha's elopement, with additions.
I have received a refusal from Countess Rostova and have heard reports of your brother-in-law having sought her hand, or something of that kind.
What did he say? was heard in the ranks of the Polish uhlans when one of the aides-de-camp rode up to them.
He heard hurried footsteps beyond the door, both halves of it were opened rapidly; all was silent and then from the study the sound was heard of other steps, firm and resolute--they were those of Napoleon.
He passed into the next room, and the deep, querulous sounds of his voice were at once heard from there.
Have you heard of Raevski's exploit?
And the officer gave them details of the Saltanov battle, which he had heard at the staff.
The command was heard to "mount" and the soldiers crossed themselves and mounted.
Dress your ranks! the order of the regimental commander was heard ahead.
Our advanced line, already in action, could be heard briskly exchanging shots with the enemy in the dale.
The sounds, which he had not heard for so long, had an even more pleasurable and exhilarating effect on Rostov than the previous sounds of firing.
As Natasha, at her mother's side, passed through the crowd behind a liveried footman who cleared the way for them, she heard a young man speaking about her in too loud a whisper.
She heard, or thought she heard, the names of Kuragin and Bolkonski.
And it seemed to her that God heard her prayer.
As soon as Petya found himself in the square he clearly heard the sound of bells and the joyous voices of the crowd that filled the whole Kremlin.
"Hurrah!" was heard on all sides.
Poor dear, he's as white as a sheet!--various voices were heard saying.
Suddenly the sound of a firing of cannon was heard from the embankment, to celebrate the signing of peace with the Turks, and the crowd rushed impetuously toward the embankment to watch the firing.
Several approving voices were heard in the crowd.
Glinka, the editor of the Russian Messenger, who was recognized (cries of "author! author!" were heard in the crowd), said that "hell must be repulsed by hell," and that he had seen a child smiling at lightning flashes and thunderclaps, but "we will not be that child."
"I only said that it would be more to the purpose to make sacrifices when we know what is needed!" said he, trying to be heard above the other voices.
There was a rustling among the crowd and it again subsided, so that Pierre distinctly heard the pleasantly human voice of the Emperor saying with emotion:
The Emperor ceased speaking, the crowd began pressing round him, and rapturous exclamations were heard from all sides.
He stood at the back, and, though he had heard hardly anything, understood everything in his own way.
Having heard that Count Mamonov was furnishing a regiment, Bezukhov at once informed Rostopchin that he would give a thousand men and their maintenance.
As he approached Smolensk he heard the sounds of distant firing, but these did not impress him.
Suddenly the strange sound of a far-off whistling and thud was heard, followed by a boom of cannon blending into a dull roar that set the windows rattling.
At that moment the pitiful wailing of women was heard from different sides, the frightened baby began to cry, and people crowded silently with pale faces round the cook.
Well, have you heard the great news?
So he rattled on, telling all the gossip he had heard among the orderlies.
Several times, waking up, she heard his groans and muttering, the creak of his bed, and the steps of Tikhon and the doctor when they turned him over.
The princess heard her, not heeding her words but occasionally looking up at her and listening to the sound of her voice.
If Prince Andrew heard that I was in the power of the French!
She had heard vaguely that there was such a thing as "landlord's corn" which was sometimes given to the peasants.
Sighs were the only sound heard in the crowd.
'I'll give you grain, indeed!' she says, voices in the crowd were heard saying.
Never will that moment return for him or for me when he might have said all he longed to say, and not Tikhon but I might have heard and understood him.
From behind the door I heard how he lay down on his bed groaning and loudly exclaimed, 'My God!'
I said then that it was not in order, voices were heard bickering with one another.
"Yes, I heard," said he sympathetically, and after a short pause added: "Yes, it's Scythian warfare.
In the midst of his explanation shouts were heard from the army, growing more incoherent and more diffused, mingling with music and songs and coming from the field where the review was held.
While this was being given, Prince Andrew heard the whisper of a woman's voice and the rustle of a silk dress behind the door.
Do you know what I heard today?
He had not decided what it should mean when he heard the voice of the eldest princess at the door asking whether she might come in.
They'll be here in a minute... voices were suddenly heard saying; and officers, soldiers, and militiamen began running forward along the road.
After he had returned, voices were heard outside the shed.
After they had gone Pierre approached Prince Andrew and was about to start a conversation when they heard the clatter of three horses' hoofs on the road not far from the shed, and looking in that direction Prince Andrew recognized Wolzogen and Clausewitz accompanied by a Cossack.
They rode close by continuing to converse, and Prince Andrew involuntarily heard these words:
The first shots had not yet ceased to reverberate before others rang out and yet more were heard mingling with and overtaking one another.
A crowd of military men was assembled there, members of the staff could be heard conversing in French, and Kutuzov's gray head in a white cap with a red band was visible, his gray nape sunk between his shoulders.
But the men in the battery seemed not to notice this, and merry voices and jokes were heard on all sides.
Pierre, who had not noticed these sounds before, now heard nothing else.
Sometimes shouts were heard through the firing, but it was impossible to tell what was being done there.
Talk was rarely heard in the ranks, and it ceased altogether every time the thud of a successful shot and the cry of "stretchers!" was heard.
But when our artillery or cavalry advanced or some of our infantry were seen to move forward, words of approval were heard on all sides.
My God!-- voices among the officers were heard saying.
Oh, ooh! his frightened moans could be heard, subdued by suffering and broken by sobs.
"Sire?" asked the adjutant who had not heard the remark.
One terrible question absorbed him and to that question he heard no reply from anyone.
Gentlemen, I have heard your views.
I have heard of certain projects concerning... you know.
Pierre heard the other voices repeat.
Scarcely had Pierre laid his head on the pillow before he felt himself falling asleep, but suddenly, almost with the distinctness of reality, he heard the boom, boom, boom of firing, the thud of projectiles, groans and cries, and smelled blood and powder, and a feeling of horror and dread of death seized him.
"I have heard nothing," Pierre replied unconcernedly.
Perhaps you have heard of that affair with the proclamation.
We have heard of your prowess.
"But I heard," said Natasha.
I tell you, Papa" (he smote himself on the breast as a general he had heard speaking had done, but Berg did it a trifle late for he should have struck his breast at the words "Russian army"), "I tell you frankly that we, the commanders, far from having to urge the men on or anything of that kind, could hardly restrain those... those... yes, those exploits of antique valor," he went on rapidly.
And Berg related all that he remembered of the various tales he had heard those days.
They knew their Natasha, and alarm as to what would happen if she heard this news stifled all sympathy for the man they both liked.
"We heard so," replied the man.
All the rest of that day Pierre spent alone in his benefactor's study, and Gerasim heard him pacing restlessly from one corner to another and talking to himself.
She heard the sound of quick footsteps in the quiet street.
In the midst of the song cries were heard, and fighting and blows in the passage and porch.
He'll explain... voices in the rear of the crowd were suddenly heard saying, and the general attention turned to the police superintendent's trap which drove into the square attended by two mounted dragoons.
The crowd halted, pressing around those who had heard what the superintendent had said, and looking at the departing trap.
Do they think we're dogs? voices in the crowd were heard saying more and more frequently.
Those standing in front, who had seen and heard what had taken place before them, all stood with wide-open eyes and mouths, straining with all their strength, and held back the crowd that was pushing behind them.
How could he be alive? voices in the crowd could be heard saying.
He was driving to the Yauza bridge where he had heard that Kutuzov was.
The caleche flew over the ground as fast as the horses could draw it, but for a long time Count Rostopchin still heard the insane despairing screams growing fainter in the distance, while his eyes saw nothing but the astonished, frightened, bloodstained face of "the traitor" in the fur-lined coat.
He's not bad! low voices could be heard saying.
A few instants after the echo of the reports resounding over the stone- built Kremlin had died away the French heard a strange sound above their head.
"Fire!" repeated the officer once more, and the reports of a musket and of two cannon shots were heard simultaneously.
He did not know how or when this thought had taken such possession of him, but he remembered nothing of the past, understood nothing of the present, and all he saw and heard appeared to him like a dream.
Sighs were heard, words of prayer, and the sobbing of the count's old valet.
Through the open window the moans of the adjutant could be heard more distinctly.
First she heard her mother praying and sighing and the creaking of her bed under her, then Madame Schoss' familiar whistling snore and Sonya's gentle breathing.
Soon after that Natasha heard her mother's even breathing.
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.
They heard the sound of voices behind them.
In another side street a sentinel standing beside a green caisson shouted at him, but only when the shout was threateningly repeated and he heard the click of the man's musket as he raised it did Pierre understand that he had to pass on the other side of the street.
He heard nothing and saw nothing of what went on around him.
Though he heard and saw nothing around him he found his way by instinct and did not go wrong in the side streets that led to the Povarskoy.
As he was going along a foot path across a wide- open space adjoining the Povarskoy on one side and the gardens of Prince Gruzinski's house on the other, Pierre suddenly heard the desperate weeping of a woman close to him.
He ran round to the other side of the lodge and was about to dash into that part of it which was still standing, when just above his head he heard several voices shouting and then a cracking sound and the ring of something heavy falling close beside him.
Shouts of approval were heard from the crowd around, and at the same moment a mounted patrol of French uhlans appeared from round the corner.
What's that? asked Anna Pavlovna, securing silence for the mot, which she had heard before.
When he heard these words and saw the expression of firm resolution in the Emperor's eyes, Michaud--quoique etranger, russe de coeur et d'ame-- at that solemn moment felt himself enraptured by all that he had heard (as he used afterwards to say), and gave expression to his own feelings and those of the Russian people whose representative he considered himself to be, in the following words:
As soon as Nicholas entered in his hussar uniform, diffusing around him a fragrance of perfume and wine, and had uttered the words "better late than never" and heard them repeated several times by others, people clustered around him; all eyes turned on him, and he felt at once that he had entered into his proper position in the province--that of a universal favorite: a very pleasant position, and intoxicatingly so after his long privations.
She has heard from her niece how you rescued her...
Princess Mary, having learned of her brother's wound only from the Gazette and having no definite news of him, prepared (so Nicholas heard, he had not seen her again himself) to set off in search of Prince Andrew.
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.
As soon as she heard his voice a vivid glow kindled in her face, lighting up both her sorrow and her joy.
But when she heard of Prince Andrew's presence in their house, despite her sincere pity for him and for Natasha, she was seized by a joyful and superstitious feeling that God did not intend her to be separated from Nicholas.
She heard the sound of their voices through the door.
He felt it in the merry sounds of regimental music he heard from the left side of the field, and felt and realized it especially from the list of prisoners the French officer had read out when he came that morning.
Pierre heard the French consulting whether to shoot them separately or two at a time.
Probably a word of command was given and was followed by the reports of eight muskets; but try as he would Pierre could not afterwards remember having heard the slightest sound of the shots.
He heard what they said, but did not understand the meaning of the words and made no kind of deduction from or application of them.
When Princess Mary heard from Nicholas that her brother was with the Rostovs at Yaroslavl she at once prepared to go there, in spite of her aunt's efforts to dissuade her--and not merely to go herself but to take her nephew with her.
That she had not heard from Prince Andrew himself, Princess Mary attributed to his being too weak to write or to his considering the long journey too hard and too dangerous for her and his son.
She turned away and was about to ask the countess again how to go to him, when light, impetuous, and seemingly buoyant steps were heard at the door.
As soon as Natasha, sitting at the head of Prince Andrew's bed, heard of Princess Mary's arrival, she softly left his room and hastened to her with those swift steps that had sounded buoyant to Princess Mary.
Princess Mary heard him and did not understand how he could say such a thing.
Princess Mary heard his words but they had no meaning for her, except as a proof of how far away he now was from everything living.
Suddenly the beast was heard to moan.
While still at a distance he heard as he rode the merry sounds of a soldier's dance song proceeding from the house.
"In the meadows... in the meadows!" he heard, accompanied by whistling and the sound of a torban, drowned every now and then by shouts.
As always happens the men, starting cheerfully, began to halt; murmurs were heard, there was a sense of confusion, and finally a backward movement.
Some of the prisoners who had heard Pierre talking to the corporal immediately asked what the Frenchman had said.
Moreover, just as Pierre was speaking a sharp rattle of drums was suddenly heard from both sides.
What have they done? the prisoners on one side and another were heard saying as they gazed on the charred ruins.
From all sides, like the roar of the sea, were heard the rattle of wheels, the tramp of feet, and incessant shouts of anger and abuse.
For a long time, oaths, angry shouts, and fighting could be heard from all sides.
There was a stir in the next room and he heard the steps of Toll, Konovnitsyn, and Bolkhovitinov.
When Denisov had come to Pokrovsk at the beginning of his operations and had as usual summoned the village elder and asked him what he knew about the French, the elder, as though shielding himself, had replied, as all village elders did, that he had neither seen nor heard anything of them.
Tikhon followed behind and Petya heard the Cossacks laughing with him and at him, about some pair of boots he had thrown into the bushes.
Vesenya!-- Vesenny! laughing voices were heard calling to one another in the darkness.
The sound of bare feet splashing through the mud was heard in the darkness, and the drummer boy came to the door.
Petya had heard in the army many stories of Dolokhov's extraordinary bravery and of his cruelty to the French, so from the moment he entered the hut Petya did not take his eyes from him, but braced himself up more and more and held his head high, that he might not be unworthy even of such company.
"Don't talk Russian," said Dolokhov in a hurried whisper, and at that very moment they heard through the darkness the challenge: "Qui vive?" * and the click of a musket.
Having ridden up the road, on both sides of which French talk could be heard around the campfires, Dolokhov turned into the courtyard of the landowner's house.
Dolokhov, as if he had not heard the question, did not reply, but lighting a short French pipe which he took from his pocket began asking the officer in how far the road before them was safe from Cossacks.
Not all the Cossacks and hussars were asleep; here and there, amid the sounds of falling drops and the munching of the horses near by, could be heard low voices which seemed to be whispering.
Likhachev got up, rummaged in his pack, and soon Petya heard the warlike sound of steel on whetstone.
He heard footsteps in the darkness and a black figure appeared.
"Ozheg-zheg, Ozheg-zheg..." hissed the saber against the whetstone, and suddenly Petya heard an harmonious orchestra playing some unknown, sweetly solemn hymn.
And at first from afar he heard men's voices and then women's.
In an instant the tramp of horses galloping forward was heard, shouts came from various sides, and then more shots.
A volley was heard, and some bullets whistled past, while others plashed against something.
When he did so and heard the subdued moaning with which Karataev generally lay down at the halting places, and when he smelled the odor emanating from him which was now stronger than before, Pierre moved farther away and did not think about him.
When Pierre reached the fire and heard Platon's voice enfeebled by illness, and saw his pathetic face brightly lit up by the blaze, he felt a painful prick at his heart.
Pierre heard them ask.
All around he heard his comrades sobbing with joy.
She saw his face, heard his voice, repeated his words and her own, and sometimes devised other words they might have spoken.
She heard Dunyasha's words about Peter Ilynich and a misfortune, but did not grasp them.
The sight of her father, the terribly wild cries of her mother that she heard through the door, made her immediately forget herself and her own grief.
Natasha neither saw nor heard her.
One part of it dispersed and waded knee-deep through the snow into a birch forest to the right of the village, and immediately the sound of axes and swords, the crashing of branches, and merry voices could be heard from there.
About midnight they heard the sound of steps in the snow of the forest, and the crackling of dry branches.
They had heard all that before.
He had heard that the Rostovs were at Kostroma but the thought of Natasha seldom occurred to him.
Princess Mary, frowning in her effort to hold back her tears, sat beside Natasha, and heard for the first time the story of those last days of her brother's and Natasha's love.
Dessalles' voice was heard outside the door asking whether little Nicholas might come in to say good night.
I heard of it in Orel and you cannot imagine how it shocked me.
Not only did I never see him but I heard nothing about him--I was in much lower company!
I heard that they were arranging a match for her with young Rostov.
I heard about that affair of hers at the time.
Then through the door she heard Nicholas clearing his throat again and stirring, and his voice said crossly:
At that moment they heard the sound of the door pulley and footsteps in the hall and anteroom, as if someone had arrived.
She was nursing her boy when the sound of Pierre's sleigh was heard at the front door, and the old nurse--knowing how to please her mistress-- entered the room inaudibly but hurriedly and with a beaming face.
As I entered the anteroom I heard Andrusha's peals of laughter and that meant that all was well.
"Come, Anna Makarovna," Pierre's voice was heard saying, "come here into the middle of the room and at the word of command, 'One, two,' and when I say 'three'... You stand here, and you in my arms--well now!
Denisov, dissatisfied with the government on account of his own disappointments in the service, heard with pleasure of the things done in Petersburg which seemed to him stupid, and made forcible and sharp comments on what Pierre told them.
Natasha, who had long expected to be fetched to nurse her baby, now heard the nurse calling her and went to the nursery.
"Are you ill?" he heard Dessalles' voice asking.
