    1
  • Though she wasn't hungry, she drank, exploring the black curtain shielding his memories as she did.

    1
    1
  • Though she was fatigued, her wounds were healed.

  • You'll not face anyone willing to challenge you for him, ikir, I assure you, though there may be some left who might help him.

    1
    1
  • Though the demon lord didn't move from his spot, she was afraid of causing any sort of confrontation between them.

    1
    1
  • She hesitated, though, not wanting to walk into another trap of Harmony's death dealers.

    1
  • Though I could always wait until tomorrow, after Darkyn deals with you.

  • You were emotional, though.

    1
    1
  • Deidre wasn't certain if there was any affection for his daughter, though his persistence in healing her was a sign of either care or obligation.

    1
    1

    1
    1
  • I waited, though God knows Jeff tried hard enough to get at me!

    1
    1
  • Though whips and chains wouldn't have gotten him to admit it, he was so insanely jealous of his brother's moment of glory he would have sold his soul and auctioned wife Ginger to have done the same damn thing.

    1
    1
  • Then she added, "Even though I don't have a flick of an idea what you're talking about."

    1

    1
  • He hadn't wanted to believe one of his sons betrayed the rest of the Council, though he wasn't exactly surprised, either.

    1
    1
  • It wouldn't have mattered if she had a comfortable bed, though.

    1
    1
  • At first she though exhaustion might be the cause, but when he started working longer hours, it was obvious that wasn't the case.

    1
    1
  • It was hard to believe he didn't understand the source of her distress, and yet he acted as though he was baffled.

    1
    1
  • He was not rough, though he wasn't gentle, either.

    1
    1
  • Isn't there someone closer, though?

    1
    1
  • It had given them no trouble, though.

    1
    1
  • This morning I remembered, though.

    1
    1
  • He wasn't going to eat it, though.

    1

    1
  • There was no point in talking about it to Carmen, though.

    1
    1
  • It wasn't going to change his relationship with his father, though.

    1
    1
  • Though he intended to make the night about the dying woman, he found it was as much about him.

    1
    1
  • Though her hair was pink, there was no mistaking the delicate facial features, porcelain skin and large eyes of the woman who tormented him his entire life then dumped the underworld on him.

    1
    1
  • I have to go to the bathroom first though.

    1
    1
  • It was a sign, though, that things had gone on long enough.

    1
    1
  • You probably know that though, right?

    1
    1
  • Though mainly but a humble route to neighboring villages, or for the woodman's team, it once amused the traveller more than now by its variety, and lingered longer in his memory.

    1
    1
  • But I can assure my readers that Walden has a reasonably tight bottom at a not unreasonable, though at an unusual, depth.

    1
    1
  • No doubt many a smiling valley with its stretching cornfields occupies exactly such a "horrid chasm," from which the waters have receded, though it requires the insight and the far sight of the geologist to convince the unsuspecting inhabitants of this fact.

    1
    1
  • This people must cease to hold slaves, and to make war on Mexico, though it cost them their existence as a people.

    1
    1
  • "What is that?" asked the countess as if she did not know what the visitor alluded to, though she had already heard about the cause of Count Bezukhov's distress some fifteen times.

    1
    1
  • About some Denisov or other, though he himself, I dare say, is braver than any of them.

    1
    1
  • Though he is a German--I congratulate him!

    1
    1
  • Pierre was struck by the modesty of the small though clean house after the brilliant surroundings in which he had last met his friend in Petersburg.

    1
    1
  • With the stern old prince and the gentle, timid Princess Mary, though he had scarcely known them, Pierre at once felt like an old friend.

    1
    1
  • The Emperor, though he met him twice, did not favor him with a single word.

    1
    1
  • Thoughts of home grew stronger the nearer he approached it--far stronger, as though this feeling of his was subject to the law by which the force of attraction is in inverse proportion to the square of the distance.

    1
    1
  • Though Daniel was not a big man, to see him in a room was like seeing a horse or a bear on the floor among the furniture and surroundings of human life.

    1
    1
  • Sonya, as always, did not quite keep pace with them, though they shared the same reminiscences.

    1
    1
  • The old count's troyka, with Dimmler and his party, started forward, squeaking on its runners as though freezing to the snow, its deep-toned bell clanging.

    1
    1
  • Though Balashev was used to imperial pomp, he was amazed at the luxury and magnificence of Napoleon's court.

    1
    1
  • Napoleon turned to him with a pleasant, though slightly ironic, smile.

    1
    1
  • But though externally all remained as of old, the inner relations of all these people had changed since Prince Andrew had seen them last.

    1
    1
  • At first sight, Pfuel, in his ill-made uniform of a Russian general, which fitted him badly like a fancy costume, seemed familiar to Prince Andrew, though he saw him now for the first time.

    1
    1
  • Without heeding the end of the Italian's remarks, and as though not hearing them, the Emperor, recognizing Bolkonski, addressed him graciously.

    1
    1
  • Though he concealed the fact under a show of irritation and contempt, he was evidently in despair that the sole remaining chance of verifying his theory by a huge experiment and proving its soundness to the whole world was slipping away from him.

    1
    1
  • 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.

    1
    1
  • On all sides, the hussars were busy with the dragoons; one was wounded, but though his face was bleeding, he would not give up his horse; another was perched up behind an hussar with his arms round him; a third was being helped by an hussar to mount his horse.

    1
    1
  • Even to Natasha herself it was pleasant to see that so many sacrifices were being made for her sake, and to know that she had to take medicine at certain hours, though she declared that no medicine would cure her and that it was all nonsense.

    1
    1
  • But when he had gone into another room, to which the countess hurriedly followed him, he assumed a grave air and thoughtfully shaking his head said that though there was danger, he had hopes of the effect of this last medicine and one must wait and see, that the malady was chiefly mental, but...

    1
    1
  • "Reinforcements?" said Napoleon in a tone of stern surprise, looking at the adjutant--a handsome lad with long black curls arranged like Murat's own--as though he did not understand his words.

    1
    1
  • Though there was no advantage in sending Friant's division instead of Claparede's, and even an obvious inconvenience and delay in stopping Claparede and sending Friant now, the order was carried out exactly.

    1
    1
  • After hearing what was being said by one or other of these groups he generally turned away with an air of disappointment, as though they were not speaking of anything he wished to hear.

    1
    1
  • He sat, sunk deep in a folding armchair, and continually cleared his throat and pulled at the collar of his coat which, though it was unbuttoned, still seemed to pinch his neck.

    1
    1
  • But the abbe, though he evidently enjoyed the beauty of his companion, was absorbed in his mastery of the matter.

    1
    1
  • Though people were afraid of Marya Dmitrievna she was regarded in Petersburg as a buffoon, and so of what she had said they only noticed, and repeated in a whisper, the one coarse word she had used, supposing the whole sting of her remark to lie in that word.

    1
    1
  • Afterwards when he recalled those thoughts Pierre was convinced that someone outside himself had spoken them, though the impressions of that day had evoked them.

    1
    1
  • Though this news was being concealed from the inhabitants, the officials--the heads of the various government departments--knew that Moscow would soon be in the enemy's hands, just as Count Rostopchin himself knew it, and to escape personal responsibility they had all come to the governor to ask how they were to deal with their various departments.

    1
    1
  • Though she concealed from him her intention of keeping him under her wing, Petya guessed her designs, and instinctively fearing that he might give way to emotion when with her--might "become womanish" as he termed it to himself--he treated her coldly, avoided her, and during his stay in Moscow attached himself exclusively to Natasha for whom he had always had a particularly brotherly tenderness, almost lover-like.

    1
    1
  • Natasha quietly repeated her question, and her face and whole manner were so serious, though she was still holding the ends of her handkerchief, that the major ceased smiling and after some reflection-- as if considering in how far the thing was possible--replied in the affirmative.

    1
    1
  • The major-domo to whom these entreaties were addressed, though he was sorry for the wounded, resolutely refused, saying that he dare not even mention the matter to the count.

    1
    1
  • From the anteroom Berg ran with smooth though impatient steps into the drawing room, where he embraced the count, kissed the hands of Natasha and Sonya, and hastened to inquire after "Mamma's" health.

    1
    1
  • In fact, however, though now much farther off than before, the Rostovs all saw Pierre--or someone extraordinarily like him--in a coachman's coat, going down the street with head bent and a serious face beside a small, beardless old man who looked like a footman.

    1
    1
  • 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.

    1
    1
  • Rostopchin, though he had patriotic sentiments, was a sanguine and impulsive man who had always moved in the highest administrative circles and had no understanding at all of the people he supposed himself to be guiding.

    1
    1
  • "Vereshchagin was tried and condemned to death," thought Rostopchin (though the Senate had only condemned Vereshchagin to hard labor), "he was a traitor and a spy.

    1
    1
  • Though tattered, hungry, worn out, and reduced to a third of their original number, the French entered Moscow in good marching order.

    1
    1
  • "A Frenchman or a Russian prince incognito," said the officer, looking at Pierre's fine though dirty linen and at the ring on his finger.

    1
    1
  • The conflict of magnanimity between the mother and the daughter, ending in the mother's sacrificing herself and offering her daughter in marriage to her lover, even now agitated the captain, though it was the memory of a distant past.

    1
    1
  • Natasha did not move, though her little bare foot, thrust out from under the quilt, was growing cold on the bare floor.

    1
    1
  • Though with the intimacy now established between the wounded man and Natasha the thought occurred that should he recover their former engagement would be renewed, no one--least of all Natasha and Prince Andrew--spoke of this: the unsettled question of life and death, which hung not only over Bolkonski but over all Russia, shut out all other considerations.

    1
    1
  • 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.

    1
    1
  • But Pierre, though he felt that something unusual was happening around him, did not realize that he was approaching the fire.

    1
    1
  • When--free from soldiers, wagons, and the filthy traces of a camp--he saw villages with peasants and peasant women, gentlemen's country houses, fields where cattle were grazing, posthouses with stationmasters asleep in them, he rejoiced as though seeing all this for the first time.

    1
    1
  • The adjutant, also, had evidently had no evil intent though he might have refrained from coming in.

    1
    1
  • It was the unexpected realization of the fact that he still valued life as presented to him in the form of his love for Natasha, and a last, though ultimately vanquished, attack of terror before the unknown.

    1
    1
  • Napoleon, with his usual assurance that whatever entered his head was right, wrote to Kutuzov the first words that occurred to him, though they were meaningless.

    1
    1
  • As in the Austerlitz dispositions, it was written--though not in German this time:

    1
    1
  • And they did indeed get somewhere, though not to their right places; a few eventually even got to their right place, but too late to be of any use and only in time to be fired at.

    1
    1
  • Thus he stumbled on Bagovut's corps in a wood when it was already broad daylight, though the corps should long before have joined Orlov-Denisov.

    1
  • He no longer seemed stout, though he still had the appearance of solidity and strength hereditary in his family.

    1
    1
  • And the corporal leaned against the door and offered Pierre his pipe, though whenever he offered it Pierre always declined it.

    1
    1
  • He now often remembered his conversation with Prince Andrew and quite agreed with him, though he understood Prince Andrew's thoughts somewhat differently.

    1
    1
  • Pierre went up to him, though he knew his attempt would be vain.

    1
    1
  • In the early days of October another envoy came to Kutuzov with a letter from Napoleon proposing peace and falsely dated from Moscow, though Napoleon was already not far from Kutuzov on the old Kaluga road.

    1
    1
  • But though they all realized that it was necessary to get away, there still remained a feeling of shame at admitting that they must flee.

    1
    1
  • When Pierre and his wife entered the drawing room the countess was in one of her customary states in which she needed the mental exertion of playing patience, and so--though by force of habit she greeted him with the words she always used when Pierre or her son returned after an absence: High time, my dear, high time!

  • Of course he is right there," said Countess Mary, "but he forgets that we have other duties nearer to us, duties indicated to us by God Himself, and that though we might expose ourselves to risks we must not risk our children."

  • For instance, if you have a Facebook friend Abigail in Albania whom you only met once at a rock-paper-scissors competition years ago, you will generally regard Abigail's first-hand account as authoritative, even though you don't really know Abigail all that well.

    2
  • My teacher's eyes are no better: indeed, I think they grow more troublesome, though she is very brave and patient, and will not give up.

    1
    2
  • She would turn her head, smile, and act as though she had heard what was said.

    1
    2
  • When her attention was drawn to a marble slab inscribed with the name FLORENCE in relief, she dropped upon the ground as though looking for something, then turned to me with a face full of trouble, and asked, "Were is poor little Florence?"
