  • "No," answered the owner of the big yellow eyes which were blinking at them so steadily; "you are wrong about that.
  • "Oh; are you hungry?" enquired Dorothy, drawing back.
  • And--and--do you eat people?
  • "How old are you?" enquired Zeb, who stared at the yellow eyes as if fascinated.
  • Quite young, I grieve to say; and all of my brothers and sisters that you see here are practically my own age.
  • She's a little fussy, you know, and afraid of growing old, being a widow and still in her prime.
  • Mother usually knows what she is about, but she made a mistake this time; for you are sure to escape us unless you come too near, and you probably won't do that.
  • "Permit me to say," returned the dragonette, "that you are rather impolite to call us names, knowing that we cannot resent your insults.
  • Can you match that pedigree, little girl?
  • "You may be right," replied the Wizard, "but we're a little particular about associating with strangers.

  • "Were you ever before shut up in a cave, far under the earth, with no way of getting out?" enquired the horse, seriously.

  • We've been in the dark quite a while, and you may as well explain what has happened.
  • "Well," said another piglet, "you are a wizard, are you not?"
  • "You can ask Dorothy," said the little man, in an injured tone.
  • "Thank you, my dear, for doing me justice," responded the Wizard, gratefully.
  • Yes. The first time I went to Oz I found you there, ruling the Emerald City.
  • After you went up in a balloon, and escaped us, I got back to Kansas by means of a pair of magical silver shoes.
  • Have you them here with you?
  • "And were you?" asked Zeb, astonished at what he heard.
  • "Do you mean that Princess Ozma will see this cave in her enchanted picture, and see all of us here, and what we are doing?" demanded Zeb.
  • "Don't worry, dear," Dorothy exclaimed, "I'll hold you in my arms, and take you with me."
  • "Couldn't you manage to hold me in your arms?" asked the cab-horse.
  • All I need do is to wish you with me, and there you'll be--safe in the royal palace!
  • They are still proud of their former Wizard, and often speak of you kindly.
  • You're sure to like Billina, when you know her, asserted Dorothy.
  • Couldn't you wish me in some safer place than Oz.
  • You'll just love the folks in Oz, when you get acquainted.
  • But this sawhorse can trot as fast as you can, Jim; and he's very wise, too.
  • But I'm afraid you cannot rule the Emerald City, as you used to, because we now have a beautiful Princess whom everyone loves dearly.
  • "Did you not wear green whiskers at one time?" he asked.
  • "But I assure you, my good people, that I do not wish to rule the Emerald City," he added, earnestly.
  • "In that case you are very welcome!" cried all the servants, and it pleased the Wizard to note the respect with which the royal retainers bowed before him.
  • But she has ordered me to make you welcome and to show you to your apartments.
  • "Do you mean that I'm a freak?" asked Jim, angrily.
  • Would you like it again?
  • Please tell me, Mr. Wizard, whether you called yourself Oz after this great country, or whether you believe my country is called Oz after you.
  • But didn't you cut it almost too short?
  • "That is quite a history," said Ozma; "but there is a little more history about the Land of Oz that you do not seem to understand--perhaps for the reason that no one ever told it you.
  • Many years before you came here this Land was united under one Ruler, as it is now, and the Ruler's name was always 'Oz,' which means in our language 'Great and Good'; or, if the Ruler happened to be a woman, her name was always 'Ozma.'
  • Then the Witches divided up the kingdom, and ruled the four parts of it until you came here.
  • That was why the people were so glad to see you, and why they thought from your initials that you were their rightful ruler.
  • "We owe a great deal to the Wonderful Wizard," continued the Princess, "for it was you who built this splendid Emerald City."
  • "But you ruled it wisely and well for many years," said she, "and made the people proud of your magical art.
  • So, as you are now too old to wander abroad and work in a circus, I offer you a home here as long as you live.
  • You shall be the Official Wizard of my kingdom, and be treated with every respect and consideration.
  • I'm very certain, Oz, that you gave me the best brains in the world, for I can think with them day and night, when all other brains are fast asleep.
  • "How long did you rule the Emerald City, after I left here?" was the next question.
  • "You have everything you wish for," said the Princess.
  • "You have everything you wish for," said the Princess.
  • "How horrid of you, Eureka!" cried Dorothy.
  • "You have queer friends, seems to me," replied the kitten, in a surly tone.
  • Everybody lives in peace here, and loves everybody else; and unless you two, Billina and Eureka, make up and be friends, I'll take my Magic Belt and wish you both home again, IMMEJITLY.
  • It has made me many friends, I assure you, and it beats as kindly and lovingly today as it every did.
  • "How well you disguise it," said the Wizard.
  • Do you take me for a salamander?
  • Do you take me for a tom-cat?
  • Do you take me for a weasel?
  • "You are at least six feet high, and that is higher than any other animal in this country," said the Steward.
  • Fetch it on, but don't cook it, as you value your life.
  • But a rickety wooden thing like you has no right to be alive.
  • "Is it possible that you are a Real Horse?" he murmured.
  • "No; you miss many pleasures," remarked the cab-horse, pityingly.
  • You do not know the relief of brushing away a fly that has bitten you, nor the delight of eating delicious food, nor the satisfaction of drawing a long breath of fresh, pure air.
  • You do not know the relief of brushing away a fly that has bitten you, nor the delight of eating delicious food, nor the satisfaction of drawing a long breath of fresh, pure air.
  • "Oh, I cannot hope ever to be like you," sighed the Sawhorse.
  • You are certainly the most beautiful creature I ever beheld.
  • Your chief fault, my friend, is in being made of wood, and that I suppose you cannot help.
  • You, poor thing! cannot even bleed when you are hurt.
  • You, poor thing! cannot even bleed when you are hurt.
  • "How did you happen to be shod with gold?" he asked.
  • These are friends, and will do you no harm.
  • Have you breakfasted, Sir Horse?
  • Are you here again?
  • "What brought you back?" was the next question, and Dorothy's eye rested on an antlered head hanging on the wall just over the fireplace, and caught its lips in the act of moving.
  • I thought you were stuffed.
  • What were you when you were first alive?
  • "It isn't that," said the Sawhorse, modestly; "but I never tire, and you do."
  • I was born in Kentucky, you know, where all the best and most aristocratic horses come from.
  • Why are you so bad?
  • "Why do you want me?" asked Eureka, disturbed by this threat.
  • You must go to Princess Ozma.
  • "Tell me, Eureka," said the Princess, gently: "did you eat my pretty piglet?"
  • The piglet is gone, and you ran out of the room when Jellia opened the door.
  • So, if you are innocent, Eureka, you must tell the Princess how you came to be in her room, and what has become of the piglet.
  • The fact is that I left my little pet in my dressing-room lying asleep upon the table; and you must have stolen in without my knowing it.
  • When next the door was opened you ran out and hid yourself--and the piglet was gone.
  • "Your Royal Highness and Fellow Citizens," he began; "the small cat you see a prisoner before you is accused of the crime of first murdering and then eating our esteemed Ruler's fat piglet--or else first eating and then murdering it.
  • "Do you mean my kitten must be put in a grave?" asked Dorothy.
  • "Let the Public Accuser continue," called Ozma from her throne, "and I pray you do not interrupt him."
  • "If you have, it is invisible," said the Princess.
  • "Are you still seeing with your mind's eye?" enquired the Scarecrow.
  • Prisoner, what have you to say for yourself?
  • Are you guilty, or not guilty?
  • "Why, that's for you to find out," replied Eureka.
  • If you can prove I'm guilty, I'll be willing to die nine times, but a mind's eye is no proof, because the Woggle-Bug has no mind to see with.
  • Respected Jury and dearly beloved Ozma, I pray you not to judge this feline prisoner unfeelingly.
  • "I'm trying to defend you," remonstrated the Tin Woodman.
  • Where did you find my missing pet, Nick Chopper?
  • If you hadn't happened to find the piglet, Eureka would surely have been executed.
  • "Don't be foolish," advised the Tin Woodman, "or you may be sorry for it."
  • "But why didn't you tell us at first?" she asked.
  • So, if you can find a way to fix it, we'll be much obliged to you.
  • Tomorrow morning I'll go to Kansas and you can go to Californy.
  • Where in the world have you been, my lad?
  • "You may choose any subject that you like best," said the teacher.

  • The caliph wished you to amuse him with pleasant thoughts, and you have filled his mind with melancholy.

  • "I have heard that you are the wisest man in the world," she said, "and surely this simple thing ought not to puzzle you."
  • And the queen said, You are wise, King Solomon.
  • You gather knowledge from the little things which common men pass by unnoticed.
  • "Come with us," they said, "and we will teach you that the king's soldiers are not to be trifled with."
  • "You rebel!" shouted the captain.
  • Down with you, and clean those boots at once.
  • You are going to Exeter with me.
  • I am going to put you in the academy there.
  • He does me a favor by allowing you to ride on the animal, and I do him a favor by taking care of it.
  • But tell me why you so deliberately broke the rule against whispering.
  • "Elihu, you may go home," said the master.
  • If you could only read, you might learn that story and enjoy it.
  • "Will you give it to me, mother?" asked little Alfred.
  • "Mother," he said, "will you let me see that beautiful book again?"
  • And every day since you showed me the book, he has given me a lesson.
  • Read, and you will know, my child.
  • You can never know everything, my child.
  • But you can learn many things from books.
  • "Read, and you will know," said his mother.
  • No book is worth reading that does not make you better or wiser.
  • What will you do with them?
  • "Why didn't you give something to Sarcas?" he asked.
  • "I shall be glad to see what you can do," he said.
  • Tomorrow, you shall be the king's cupbearer.
  • You would hardly have known the young prince when the time came for him to appear before his grandfather.
  • "You have done well" said his grandfather.
  • But you neglected one important thing.
  • This you forgot to do.
  • "Then why didn't you do it?" asked his mother.
  • For the other day, when you sat at dinner with your officers, I noticed that the wine made you act queerly.
  • And you, grandfather, were as bad as the rest.
  • You forgot that you were king.
  • You forgot that you were king.
  • You forgot all your good manners.
  • You tried to dance and fell upon the floor.
  • "Didn't you ever see your father behave so?" asked the king.
  • "Well, boy, what have you got?" asked one of the robbers, as he pulled Otanes from his horse.
  • Where do you carry your gold?
  • You can't make me believe that, said the robber; and he hurried away to rob one of the rich merchants.
  • Soon another came up and said, "My boy, do you happen to have any gold about you?"
  • "You are a brave lad to be joking with robbers" said the man; and he also hurried on to a more promising field.
  • At length the chief of the band called to Otanes and said, "Young fellow, have you anything worth taking?"
  • "Why did you tell us where to find it?" he asked.
  • No one would have thought that a child like you had gold about him.
  • Mount your horse, and my own men will ride with you and see that you reach the end of your journey in safety.
  • "What!" said he, "do you eat gold in this country?"
  • "Very well, then," said the shah, "stay with me a little while and observe what you can."
  • Then he said to the first man, "Have you a son?"
  • The shah turned to the second man: "Have you a daughter?"
  • What would you have done?
  • "And is that what you call justice?" asked the shah.
  • "Then let me ask you a question," said the shah.
  • Did you ever hear of King Charles the Twelfth, of Sweden?
  • But what has the bomb to do with what I wish you to write?
  • When your country is in danger, you should forget your own safety.
  • Give us a few days to learn what sort of laws you will make for us, and then we will say whether we can submit to them or not.
  • "I will give you thirty days to consider the matter," said Coriolanus.
  • You must either jump overboard into the sea or be slain with your own sword.
  • Allow me to sing to you my latest and best song.
  • "Are you lately from Italy?" he asked.
  • What news can you give me concerning my friend Arion, the sweetest of all musicians?
  • Three hours later, the ship came into port, as you have already learned.
  • You may believe the story that you like best.
  • You may believe the story that you like best.
  • Let me tell you something, my little brothers, my little sisters: You ought always to love God and praise Him.
  • Let me tell you something, my little brothers, my little sisters: You ought always to love God and praise Him.
  • He has given you wings with which to fly through the air.
  • He has given you clothing both warm and beautiful.
  • He has given you the air in which to move and have homes.
  • He gives you the rivers and the brooks from which to drink.
  • He gives you the trees in which to build your nests.
  • You toil not, neither do you spin, yet God takes care of you and your little ones.
  • You toil not, neither do you spin, yet God takes care of you and your little ones.
  • "And what can you do, Aesop?" asked Xanthus.
  • "Now which of you will hang this bell on the Cat's neck?" said the old gray Mouse.
  • Listen, and I will tell you of the famous dark day in Connecticut.
  • The poet Whittier has written a poem about him, which you will like to hear.
  • As he was starting away, the friendly innkeeper said, "Which way will you travel, Mr. Randolph?"
  • "I only asked which way you intend to travel," said the man.
  • I have I paid you my bill?
  • Do I owe you anything more?
  • Then, I intend to travel the way I wish to go--do you understand?
  • "Mr. Randolph," answered the innkeeper, "you have paid your bill and don't owe me a cent.
  • Travel the way you wish to go.
  • We shall put you ashore on the first island that we see.
  • You cannot please me better.
  • Take me back, and I will give you no more trouble.
  • _Dearest Carl; You are a good boy to send me all your wages, for now I can pay the rent and buy some warm clothing for your little sister.
  • I thank you for it, and pray that God will bless you.
  • "I think you have been asleep," said the king.
  • I know how you must have been overwearied with long hours of watching.
  • You may send the gold pieces to your mother with my compliments; and tell her that the king will take care of both her and you.
  • I will tell you another story of the same brave and famous king.
  • "Since you love him so well," said the king, "I will tell you something.
  • "You!" cried the woman in great surprise.
  • Are you the Bruce, and are you all alone?
  • They shall go with you and serve you.
  • Then some one outside called loudly, "Have you seen King Robert the Bruce pass this way?"
  • If you have a mind to make haste, we may surprise them.
  • "You are a brave fellow, Mr. Ant," he said; "but you have a heavy load to carry."
  • "You are a brave fellow, Mr. Ant," he said; "but you have a heavy load to carry."
  • You have taught me a lesson.
  • "Shall I wrap it up for you?" asked the market man.
  • Who do you think I am?
  • I happen to be going that way, and I will carry your turkey, if you will allow me.
  • You may follow me.
  • "Here, my friend, what shall I pay you?" said the young gentleman.
  • It was no trouble to me, and you are welcome.
  • "He wished to teach you a lesson," answered the market man.
  • He wished to teach you that no man should feel himself too fine to carry his own packages.
  • "What are you making, Robert?" she asked.
  • His aunt laughed and said, "Well, I hope that you will succeed."
  • I pray that you will look at them and take them at your own price.
  • "Why, what has happened to you?" he asked.
  • Have you been sick?
  • "Why didn't you come to us before?" he asked.
  • Toward what place was the eagle flying when you last saw it?
  • Do you know of any person who was once poor but who has lately and suddenly become well-to-do?
  • "Good friend," he said, "if you should find something that we have lost, what would you do with it?"
  • "Tell us," said Al Mansour to the gardener, "tell us how you came to find that bag."
  • "Well, then," said the caliph, "why did you not return it to us at once?"
  • "There is nothing lacking," he said, "but the ten pieces he has told you about; and I will give him these as a reward."
  • But one day after he had become a man, he said: Tell me about the great world which, you say, lies outside of these palace walls.
  • "If you live long enough," was the answer.
  • What do you mean by that?
  • Where did you find him?
  • "I'll tell you all about it," answered Jacquot.
  • "I am sorry if you do not like it," said Jacquot.
  • But if I had not helped you, you would have been in a worse place.
  • You have stolen my clothes and have given me these ugly things.
  • What do you mean, you ungrateful little rascal?
  • "Now tell us, father," whispered Charlot, "where did you find him?"
  • "I will tell you," he said.
  • You know where the fountain is?
  • "You want your mother, don't you?" said Mrs. Jacquot.
  • "You want your mother, don't you?" said Mrs. Jacquot.
  • Tell us who she is, and we will carry you to her.
  • They let you fall into the water, and you would have been drowned, if it hadn't been for me.
  • "You must tell us who your mother is," said Mrs. Jacquot.
  • We must let her know that you are safe.
  • Now, you charcoal man, where is that child?
  • All your court has been looking for you for the past two hours.
  • But I hope you are now ready to come home with us.
  • I thank you for what you have done for me.
  • You shall have money to buy a larger house and to send your boys to school.
  • "Think what your mother would say if she saw you in the clothes of a poor man's son." said the cardinal.
  • "Come to the palace to-morrow," he said, "and you shall have your clothes.
  • You may bring mine with you.
  • "Well, my boy," said the king, "are you looking for your father?"
  • Do you mean that the one with his hat on will be the king?
  • "Well, my boy," said King Henry, "which do you think is the king?"
  • "My good men," he said, "how many fish do you expect to draw in this time?"
  • "How much will you take for the fish that you are drawing in?" he asked.
  • "How much will you give?" said the fishermen.
  • Be they many or few, you may have all for three pieces of silver.
  • You were to have all the fish that happened to be in the net and nothing else.
  • We didn't sell you the tripod.
  • And so I have brought the prize to you, friend Thales.
  • Tell the wise man why you bring it, and repeat to him the words of the oracle.
  • One of his mottoes was this: "Whatever you do, do it well."
  • "We agree with you," said the messengers; "and we present the prize to you because you are the wisest of the wise."
  • "You are mistaken," answered Pittacus.
  • Will you sell it?
  • "Well, you will not find that man in Rhodes," said he.
  • "I have heard all about that tripod," he said, "and I know why you are carrying it from one place to another.
  • Do you expect to find any man in Corinth who deserves so rich a gift?
  • "We hope that you are the man," said the messengers.
  • I bid you carry it to him.
  • "You have made a mistake," said Chilon.
  • It is to him that you should have taken the tripod.
  • The famous men of whom I have told you in this story are commonly called the Seven Wise Men of Greece.
  • You may come to America and be poor, but if you work hard, your children will have a better life and a better opportunity.
  • From that vantage point, if you had tried to look fifty years ahead to what the world would be like in the year 2500 BC, you would have expected very little change.
  • And you would have been right.
  • If you had looked ahead fifty years to 1240, you wouldn't have anticipated much change.
  • And you would have been right.
  • And you would be right.
  • Can you imagine a world without poverty?
  • Could you have foreseen that the advent of a technology called "air conditioning" in homes would alter the social fabric of the nation?
  • You would have thought this was crazy.
  • You would have said that was crazy.
  • Do you see the difference?
  • But it is the biggest, best store ever, where you can buy anything from anywhere, based on reviews by other buyers, at a discount, and have it gift wrapped, engraved, altered, drop-shipped, and probably delivered by tomorrow.
  • When you hear about a new company and your response is, "Why in the world would anyone want to do that?" it will be because there is no offline corollary.
  • Today, success still requires good execution, but the larger question is: "Can you discover and fulfill a hitherto-unknown, latent desire in people that the Internet enables?"
  • I doubt you need me to prove these assertions—they are probably part of your daily experience.
  • But at a certain point, you don't need any more, and the technology is mature.
  • At this point, if you follow my reasoning, we have established at least the possibility of a bright future.
  • I can't tell you which clips will be watched in a century, but I'm certain that some will be.
  • If my reasoning stopped there, you would probably start fishing around for the receipt for this book and read up on your bookseller's return policy.
  • Long ago, before Gutenberg, if you wanted to know something, you had to memorize it.
  • If somebody outside your village knew something, it did not matter; for you, it did not exist.
  • The reason for this is what I call "The You Don't Know What to Ask Problem."
  • You can know everything in the world and still make bad decisions.
  • You have to have something more: wisdom.
  • It requires knowing what you should do in a given situation.
  • Pushing this to its logical extreme: What if everything you did was digitally remembered?
  • Imagine that every word you said was recorded by your personal recorder and automatically transcribed.
  • This would be very useful: No more struggling to remember what you promised the client you would deliver by Friday; you just look up the transcript.
  • No more trying to retrace your steps to find your car keys; you can see where you left them by checking your GPS system records.
  • Next, imagine everything you do is remembered in detail.
  • Not just that you went to a certain address but that the address was a movie theater and—based on where you sat and that you ordered tickets online—you saw Episode VII of Star Wars.
  • Why would you want a record of this?
  • Every meal you order.
  • Every restaurant you visit.
  • Every word you type.
  • Every book you read.
  • Every phone call you make.
  • When you last went to the dentist.
  • Everything you saw, that your eyeballs tracked to, how long you looked at it—and not just everything you ever looked at, but your physiological response.
  • Every song you download and how many times you play it.
  • Every person you meet (we all have GPS).
  • Every bite you eat, every step you take.
  • Every breath you breathe.
  • Whether you love it or hate it, do you doubt it will happen?
  • The statement is not there because you want the log per se but because the logging of the actions is what documents how much you need to pay.
  • You see it all over the Internet.
  • They will take time to write a great big forum post just for you, a total stranger they will never meet.
  • Certainly, you don't want the whole world to know where you were last night.
  • Again, we aren't talking about anyone knowing anything about you personally.
  • You probably have a device, such as a smart phone, that has an Internet connection and a GPS.
  • That device can track where you are at any time.
  • What can you do with that?
  • Would you contribute your anonymous location to a traffic speed optimization engine?
  • You could ask it, "What is the number of presidents of the United States born on Friday who have older sisters, multiplied by the number of wars lost by Bolivia?" and it could instantly give you an answer.
  • You could ask it, "What is the number of presidents of the United States born on Friday who have older sisters, multiplied by the number of wars lost by Bolivia?" and it could instantly give you an answer.
  • I say "could" because I doubt they have all those databases loaded yet, but you get the idea.
  • You could start looking around for lines that connect things we didn't previously think were connected.
  • When you look at a product on one of its web pages, Amazon suggests other products you might like as well.
  • They show complementary products to the one you are considering.
  • Amazon even tells you what percentage of people buys each one.
  • I daresay if you have purchased anything on Amazon, you have almost certainly, at some point, purchased an additional item Amazon suggested.
  • You are being helped by an excellent salesperson who has been working there for twenty-five years.
  • You have picked out a suit, a sharp grey one with barely detectable pinstripes.
  • Now you need shoes—but which ones?
  • After a few minutes more, you decide this really isn't the suit for you.
  • So the salesperson says, "If you like that suit, then come over here and try this one from Ralph Lauren."
  • In general, when you have such a salesperson, the information is useful.
  • Any time you can move data collection from humans to computers, you get vast improvements in efficiency.
  • Any time you can move data storage from brains to hard drives, you get vast improvements in efficiency.
  • Any time you can move data processing from intellects to CPUs, you get vast improvements in efficiency.
  • Once that is achieved, the sort of event that will happen is: You will be online to order, say, a replacement water filter, and the suggestion engine will propose that along with the filter, you might like to buy ... a pogo stick.
  • Once that is achieved, the sort of event that will happen is: You will be online to order, say, a replacement water filter, and the suggestion engine will propose that along with the filter, you might like to buy ... a pogo stick.

  • These guidebooks are lists of people who live in that area who would be willing to meet you for coffee.
  • Remember your Digital Echo file, that record of everything you do and say?
  • Then imagine if you shared your Digital Echo with a billion other people on the planet.
  • And if each of those billion people in turn shared a million of their life experiences, and you recorded them, you'd have an aggregate number of life experiences so large I had to look it up online.
  • Imagine what you could do with the combined learning of a quadrillion life experiences.
  • You could learn from their success and you could learn from their failure.
  • You could learn from their success and you could learn from their failure.
  • To use a simple example: You are in San Francisco.
  • You are not from there, and you want to go out for Italian food for dinner.
  • You are not from there, and you want to go out for Italian food for dinner.
  • You need an answer to a basic question: "Where should I go for Italian food?"
  • Back in the old days (the 1980s), you only had data—say, the Yellow Pages with its list of restaurants.
  • You had no real knowledge and therefore no way to make a wise decision.
  • Then along came the web, and you had data plus knowledge.
  • You could see which restaurants were rated the highest on Yelp, which ones certain reviewers liked, and so on.
  • You were better off than before, in terms of making a knowledgeable decision.
  • But you still were working with the biased, anecdotal opinions of a few people not very like you.
  • First, it will consider all your friends, people with whom you have actual intimate relationships, and it will look at where they go for Italian food.
  • This system will look at all the restaurants across the country (even around the world) where you have dined frequently.
  • This system will look at all the Italian restaurants around the country that you already like and look at all the ingredients they order online and look for restaurants in San Francisco using the same set of ingredients.
  • It will build a table of all the words used by people like you who have reviewed those restaurants and will look for San Francisco restaurants described with the same words.
  • And my system will come back with a single answer, something like, You should go to Tommaso's on Kearny Street.
  • Would you like a reservation?
  • A day later, the system will ask, "Hey, what did you think of Tommaso's?"
  • And you may say, "Meh."
  • Of course, the system only shapes decisions insofar as you take its guidance, which begs the question: Will people follow suggestions they may not fully understand?
  • You may be thinking that choosing the right place to eat Italian food doesn't constitute wisdom in a King Solomon kind of way.
  • Where are people who are studying what you want to study going?
  • What have the professors at that college ordered online that you have ordered as well?
  • How many people similar to you went to that college and are now on antidepressants?
  • When the salesperson rings up your purchase, no one tells him he had better forget what shoes he sold you with that suit and not to use that information to advise any future clients.
  • Every time you buy a book from Amazon, its employees use your data—information about what you did on their site in the privacy of your own home—to try to sell other people more products.
  • I do not know and certainly don't want to try to prove to you that the future will be like that.
  • So how about this instead: What if I can show you a future where everyone on the planet will live in good health as long as it is possible for their body to live?
  • Could you patent the sun?
  • As I was writing these words, my ten-year-old son came in and asked, "What are you doing?"
  • Expect solutions in the future to come from countries you couldn't find on a map today.
  • And today's primary method for treating cancer is, in a way, very tenth century: Essentially, chemotherapy is a medical way of saying, Let's fill you so full of poison either you or the cancer dies.
  • If the magnitude and increasing complexity of these creations fails to impress you, the sheer quantity should suffice.
  • Given all this, do you really believe this disease still has a chance?
  • Now, you don't know if the radishes make the people get better or if something that makes people crave radishes also beats back skin cancer.
  • Say, for instance, you believe redheads cause more traffic accidents than those with other colors of hair.
  • You can then divide the world into redheads and non-redheads and compare their accident records.
  • So you make sure that if your population of redheads had a million people with a certain distribution of age, the distribution in your non-redhead sample is exactly the same.
  • Then you ask the computer for any other statistical anomalies between these two populations.
  • That sends you down another line of thought.
  • You can see where this is headed.
  • You could begin studying something you have noticed anecdotally in your own life.
  • You could begin studying something you have noticed anecdotally in your own life.
  • You could say, "When I eat corn dogs, I get a headache" and start studying that.
  • You won't have to go eat the other foods; the system will remember every meal you have had and will log your headaches.
  • You won't have to go eat the other foods; the system will remember every meal you have had and will log your headaches.
  • Then, you will search to see if other people have this same problem.
  • You won't be able to identify the other people; you will simply see that 1600 other people seem to have this same corn dog issue.
  • You won't be able to identify the other people; you will simply see that 1600 other people seem to have this same corn dog issue.
  • You will then look to see what other factors they all have in common.
  • In fact, if you laid out all the DNA in your body, it would stretch from the sun to Pluto.
  • That three-billion-letter recipe for making you is what was sequenced—deciphered and written down—in the human genome project.
  • Today, for just a few hundred dollars, you can get a copy of your genome.
  • Of course, if you wanted to print it out and read it, the stack of paper would be many miles high.
  • If you and I both had our DNA sequenced and compared the output, the information would be virtually identical.
  • That difference gives me brown eyes and you blue eyes.
  • With more than thirty thousand genes in your body, you can't expect them all to have cool names.
  • For instance, have you ever seen one of those people on TV who is turning one hundred and says he ate bacon every day of his life?
  • Imagine being Jenner and not even knowing you were dealing with microbes.
  • You would know before you received a treatment how likely it was to work for you—not merely how likely it was to work for the larger population, but for you.
  • You would know before you received a treatment how likely it was to work for you—not merely how likely it was to work for the larger population, but for you.
  • It boggles the mind, especially when you consider that this science is in its infancy.
  • We will discuss the molecular machines called nanites—tiny, molecular-sized robots that will swim around in your body fighting disease, repairing damage, and alerting you to problems (and will likely dramatically increase the human lifespan).
  • If you were a scientist in Jenner's time, your only form of communication was letter writing.
  • You knew little of what any other scientist was working on.
  • If you had access to a library, its stock of medical books and journals was very small.
  • You basically worked alone.
  • If you were a scientist in Pasteur's time, you had more resources.
  • You had a lab and science symposiums.
  • You need to have a basic understanding of how things work in biology.
  • If you were a scientist in Salk's time, you did calculations by hand and wrote observations in notebooks.
  • You still worked almost exclusively with people in your lab or at least in your city.
  • With Skype and similar products, you can even see the person you are working with.
  • You can share your desktop and have whiteboard sessions on your computer.
  • When you travel, you can take your work with you.
  • After all, it was the doctor's job to keep you healthy, not to make money when you were sick.
  • In fact, if you stayed sick long enough in that culture, the doctor had to pay you!
  • If you take low-worth items or raw materials and apply labor to them to make something that has value, you have created wealth.
  • By taking a block of marble and carving a statue, or taking a handful of seed and growing a cornfield, you have combined your labor and know-how with something of little value and have created something of more value.
  • When you trade with someone in a free market, you are giving up something you have for something the other person has, which you value more.
  • You might remember the story of Kyle MacDonald who famously traded up from one red paperclip to a house, one small exchange at a time between July 2005 and July 2006.
  • That means that as you get more of them, you value each new one less.
  • If you are in a desert dying of thirst, you value the first glass of water very highly, the second glass a bit less, and the 802nd not at all.
  • It means I can trade you a good or service for an intermediate store of value known as money, and then trade that money to the person who actually has the goods I want.
  • Could you have imagined a store like this if you lived a century ago?
  • The cost of interactive information exchange, such as asking questions about products you are contemplating purchasing, has fallen to nearly zero.
  • No matter where you live, if you have access to an Internet connection, you can host an online store and sell to the entire world.
  • Imagine that you personally had to create everything you wanted to use.
  • For instance, you may manufacture widgets from lightweight plastic.
  • You figure out how to make your widget from this new plastic.
  • But for now, I want to leave you with a preposterous thought: In the future, a new Mercedes Benz will cost just $50.
  • You have ten kids but only nine chairs.
  • If you are able to consume more energy, you can do more work and therefore create more.
  • If you are a farmer and work alone, you can only plant as much land as you can personally plow. You can do just a couple of thousand calories of work a day, consuming only the energy produced by the food you ate.
  • Now, if you acquire an ox, a new source of energy, you can plow more.
  • You could power generators that could light up a stadium.
  • But think about how it could play out: If energy truly were free and unlimited, you could, for instance, power tractors everywhere in the world.
  • Here is what I think he meant: If you could see a theoretical possibility for something in physics—"something that might be true"—then given enough time, you eventually could achieve it in reality.
  • If you could see a way it might be possible, then it must be possible.
  • My purpose in this chapter will not be to persuade the reader of any political doctrine of trade; please apply your own political and social values as you see fit.
  • But it is quite likely you will need fewer workers.
  • You might argue that since there is now a surplus of labor in Chad's neighborhood, the price of labor is lowered and Chad will only find work paying $9.75 an hour.
  • You are probably thinking, How can we ever know that?
  • But I intend to show you how in the next chapter: Chad Gets a Better Job .
  • But if you can tolerate it, what follows will explain why free trade sometimes hurts the (net) world economy.
  • You and your spouse both like Oreos.
  • You, personally, are pretty happy with the generic knockoff, which saves you a dollar and tastes the same to you.
  • You, personally, are pretty happy with the generic knockoff, which saves you a dollar and tastes the same to you.
  • You would tend to buy the store brand and pocket the dollar.
  • So here is the situation: You are at the store deciding which ones to buy.
  • If you did not internalize the externalities, you would buy the generic brand and save a dollar.
  • After all, why do you need to internalize them?
  • You are leaving town for a week and a day and will completely avoid your spouse's meltdown.
  • Clearly, from a "big picture" standpoint, you should stick with the Oreos.
  • You could finance the entire government and its (hopefully) noble agenda, by this method alone.
  • And you could feel good about it; after all, you would be increasing efficiency, not merely acting as a leech to the system.
  • Say you have two countries in the world.
  • What determines how much money you or Chad or anyone gets paid?
  • The maximum wage you can earn, though, is defined by supply and demand for labor, and by your negotiating ability, but it also has a cap.
  • It is capped at the value your labor adds to the goods or services you create.
  • If you take something worth a dollar, spend an hour working on it, and your employer sells it for three dollars, no way in the world can you ever make more than two dollars an hour.
  • Why would your employer pay you more than the value you are able to add?
  • If you are a wage earner, then you should love machines.
  • Machines—which still need you as an operator, as far as we can see—magnify your productivity.
  • Think of all the machines you use to do your job.
  • Who do you think makes more money: the person who hauls bricks on his back or the person who operates the forklift that moves the bricks?
  • Who do you think makes more money: the one person who operates the cotton gin we discussed in the last chapter or one of the fifty people he replaced?
  • I am not saying if you enjoy manual labor and being exhausted at the end of the day, you shouldn't do it.
  • I am not saying if you love digging ditches, you should do something else.
  • If you like having sore muscles at the end of a day or working a job that requires little of your mental capacity so you can contemplate Nietzsche, hey, more power to you.
  • How many people do you know who say their job stretches them to their maximum potential?
  • How many people do you suppose would like that?
  • Have I convinced you that replacing people with machines frees people from the bondage of doing machine work?
  • When you imagined dogs being "invented" in the future, you would naturally imagine having conversations with them.
  • Would you want that?
  • Choose whichever of those you are comfortable with, but let me illustrate with a single example.
  • Before you commit to a number, think of this.
  • You might be saying, Well, sure.
  • Finally, you might argue that fees paid as royalties to the owners of the intellectual property needed to build the Mercedes for $50 will not fall by a thousandfold.
  • (If you can reserve judgment on that statement, I'll explain my reasoning in the book's next section.)
  • When computers are in your clothes, medicine, eyeglasses, wallet, tires, walls, makeup, jewelry, cookware, tennis shoes, binoculars, and everything else you own, those things will do more than you can imagine—the stuff of science fiction.
  • Imagine when a five-cent computer in your shoe warns you that the way you are walking will lead to spine problems.
  • Consider the pan you most often cook in today.
  • Let's say you paid $30 for it and you love it.
  • It will be better than any pan you own today.
  • This pan's nanite coating means to clean it, you just wipe it with a nanite rag that doesn't stain.
  • It alerts you when the food is about to start burning and needs stirring.
  • How much would you pay for that pan today?
  • But surely a pan that warns you if your house is burning down or your food will kill you has to be worth $200 to you.
  • Buying this pan for a dollar basically gets you a $2,000 benefit.
  • So whether you are rich or poor in the future, you will own this pan and get this benefit.
  • The house of the future won't just be better than the house you have today.
  • It will do things you don't expect a house to do.
  • First of all, it will keep you safe.
  • It will know everyone who is supposed to be in the house and alert you when someone else is in the house (replacing the family dog of old in whom we never fully placed our trust).
  • Your home will be your castle, and in your castle you will be secure.
  • It will passively recognize you by recognizing your face or your voice or your breathing pattern or the pattern of your footsteps or, most likely, your scent.
  • The house will know where everything in it is; you will never again lose your keys or your child's favorite stuffed animal.
  • It will alert you when you have mice or termites.
  • The house will need scheduled maintenance but will remember when and will ask you for permission.
  • If you ask it to run your bath, it knows you like the water at 104 degrees.
  • Your house will not be "smart" insofar as it will not seem alive to you any more than your garage door opener or your web browser does.
  • This house will be cheaper to build than a house today and worth vastly more to you for all the cool things it does.
  • How do you put a price on this house?
  • Are you finding it hard to fathom by now how almost everything can get cheaper and better?
  • You would not be the first.
  • If you already have a large amount of productivity, technology will amplify it.
  • If you have almost no productivity, amplifying it won't really help all that much.
  • You are right to quote Jefferson, but you chose the wrong quote.
  • You are right to quote Jefferson, but you chose the wrong quote.
  • Whether you look at a single country over a span of time, or a group of countries at a specific point in history, the result is the same.
  • Roughly speaking, if you look at the poorest forty nations in the world, who have an average income per person of about $1,500 a year, their effective tax rates are about 20 percent.
  • On the other hand, if you take the forty richest countries, each person earns on average around $33,000.
  • So you might suspect the tax rate is only 1 percent.
  • We've seen this: If you are running for president of the United States, merely using the words "freeze" and "Social Security" in the same sentence has the retirees of the nation heating up pots of tar and emptying their down pillows.
  • Three centuries later, it became a hereditary right and came with a daily ration of two pounds of bread ("Hey, you don't expect us to cook the free grain, do you?") and occasionally included meat, olive oil, and salt.
  • So today, you make $33,000 and pay 40 percent tax.
  • Tomorrow, you get a thirtyfold raise and are now making a million dollars a year.
  • Or, at least you have that purchasing power.
  • So, how much in taxes would you be willing to pay?
  • Well, on the one hand, you would be kind of cheesed-off.
  • After all, that's the government taking more than half of what you make.
  • But think of it this way: Before, you made $33,000 and paid 40 percent in taxes, so you were left with $20,000 in take-home pay.
  • After your raise, you made $1 million, paid $600,000 in taxes, and were left with $400,000—twenty times more after-tax income.
  • If you want to eat a banana, then you have to create a banana-amount of wealth.
  • You have to do a banana-amount of work.
  • We understand that you can, in theory, save and save and save and then live off the interest of your savings forever.
  • So let's say your parents bought Coca Cola stock their entire life, left it all to you, and you are able to live off the dividend payments of the stock.
  • In fact, you have no other income.
  • Is there anything wrong with you collecting this dividend check for which you did no work at all?
  • If you were male and born on a farm, you were almost certainly going to be a farmer.
  • By the time you were fifteen, you learned everything you needed to know to be a good farmer.
  • And so at an early age, you took a wife, started having children, and supported yourself by farming.
  • It may seem intuitive at first glance, this idea that somehow there are only so many jobs and if you replace people with machines, people have fewer jobs.
  • It will not be welfare (or, at least depending on how you define the term, it will not be perceived as welfare).
  • So yeah, if you told them to choose between working and not working, many would choose to relax.
  • Imagine you live in a large trailer park and you have four young children.
  • Everyone you know lives in the trailer park and they all have about the same level of income.
  • I reasoned that if I could show how poverty will end, then of course hunger would end as well—how many rich people do you hear about going hungry?
  • I personally think the establishment of charitable organizations was driven by the same spirit that drove the creation of new businesses.
  • This makes a great deal of sense: If nutrition isn't governed by universal laws (as physics is) and instead affects different people differently, then the way you will know certain things is by learning through trial and error, through your own experience.
  • First, it is only useful for factors that are immediately bad for you, not factors that will kill you in ten years.
  • In other words, you might not notice the time you ate the MSG and didn't get the headache.
  • Well, yeah, but you also drink a Coca-Cola every day, too.
  • How do you know that isn't doing the trick?
  • Whether you are for the organic food movement or against it, for genetically modified crops or against them, for corporate farms or seed banks or raw food or anything else, is influenced significantly by your larger view of politics.
  • For instance, if you think large corporation are greedy and evil, then when you read about how large corporations produce low-nutrition food or are putting family farms out of business, you will believe it.
  • When you read somewhere else that food produced by large corporations saved millions of lives, you won't believe that.
  • If you think "Western Medicine" is a business whose goal is to keep you sick to sell you medicines, you will tend to move away from genetically modified foods and favor organic.
  • If you love "Western medicine" and think all acupuncturists are "quacks," then you are not likely to heed (or even appreciate) your friend's well-meaning efforts to get you to drink your own urine for its health benefits.
  • This will produce extremely specific nutritional information for just you, will add years to your life, and will increase its quality as well.
  • I am glad you asked.
  • You can be a subsistence farmer and perhaps produce some excess, but given the prior observation about the fundamental volatility of farming, you will always be at risk of not producing enough.
  • You can be a subsistence farmer and perhaps produce some excess, but given the prior observation about the fundamental volatility of farming, you will always be at risk of not producing enough.
  • Regardless of who is "right," the harm comes if you try to do all these things at once.
  • Now, what do you suppose happens when agriculture prices shoot way up?
  • The cost of their imported food doubles, and I guarantee you the foreign-owned factory won't double wages as a result.
  • If you look back across the span of time, you see wood plows being used in 4000 BC, then irrigation five hundred years later.
  • And do you know how he crossed the grains?
  • What if you knew exactly what to plant, when to plant it, when to harvest it?
  • What if you could do agriculture perfectly on a per-grape basis, each grape getting individual attention?
  • Can you imagine a better life for a turnip?
  • You can't do something that long and not have some strong opinions on the matter.
  • Additionally, we had a five-acre garden where we grew everything you can grow in East Texas.
  • If you are not familiar with this whole issue, look into it; it is fascinating and, I think, important.
  • What if a manufactured steak was as good as the best steak you have ever had?
  • Do you really know what is in a hotdog, or are you sure you want to?
  • Other businesses in the food industry—say those pricey health foods you see at fancy grocery stores—optimize for taste and nutrition at the expense of price.
  • You can't have everything.
  • Have you ever eaten GMO foods?
  • Can you guess how many lives these two varieties of rice have already saved?
  • If you worry about gas emissions from cows contributing to climate change, lobby for a cow that doesn't have gas.
  • As noted previously, in the future much of what you do will leave a Digital Echo, a record of its occurrence, down to the very minutia of your life.
  • Part of this will be enabled by very cheap sensors embedded in the things you use.
  • That's all you need to optimize agriculture.
  • You can install Boinc software on your computer, choose a project you want your computer to work on when you are away from it, and maybe do your bit to change the world.

  • If you decide to participate in the loan, you can kick in $25 or more.
  • You cannot give away your right to live.
  • You cannot sell to someone the right to kill you or hold you prisoner.
  • You cannot sell to someone the right to kill you or hold you prisoner.
  • It is akin to saying you have a right to life but not a right to a heart.
  • You should do something about the problem.
  • Some might say something I consider even worse: It is inexcusable that some go hungry while you have so much.
  • I am going to take some of what you have and give it to someone else.
  • If you have a problem with that, take it up with the man with the gun.
  • And if that were not enough, he killed by starvation in the name of a program called—I kid you not—"The Super Great Leap Forward."
  • Everywhere you go in the United States are water fountains.
  • In the United States, you could do it via the tax code, with government only acting as an income redistribution agent but not as a food distributor.
  • You will have ended hunger in the United States.
  • If you knew someone who was a good business partner, was fun to hang out with, but let one of his children starve to death so that he could enjoy a higher standard of living, what would be your opinion of this person?
  • Would you be proud to call him a friend?
  • Maybe you will agree it to be possible, but after reading this chapter, you will likely think it is improbable.
  • I outline forty-five different ways this will happen—surely enough that even if you don't agree with them all, you will still have plenty of reason to be optimistic.
  • The farmer replies, "You can't get there from here."
  • Maybe you think the British ban on fox hunting with dogs is ridiculous.
  • Maybe you think prisoners have it too easy serving time while their victims struggle to piece their lives back together.
  • Ask people in what way they hope the world will become better and you will certainly get replies about reducing poverty, disease, and hunger.
  • Yes, you can still see a cockfight in the United States.
  • The word kumbaya appears in this book only once, and you just saw it.
  • My aim is to show you how war will end and convince you that the end of war is inevitable.
  • So, when I tell you we will see the end of war, if you are over thirty-five years of age, you have every reason to roll your eyes and tell me you have seen this movie before and aren't up for the sequel.
  • You could have the libertarian state, the green state, the clothing-optional state, the state with free public housing for all, the state where puns are outlawed, the state with a two-drink minimum, the fiercely pro-business state—even a state that guarantees free speech but requires that you sing your speech like a show tune.

  • If you have no food and are starving, you might invade your neighbor and take his food.
  • If you have everything you have ever wanted, you have less to gain and more to lose by invading your neighbor.
  • If you made a product the military could use, government contracts came a-flowin'.
  • If you did not, you could retool and make something the military could buy.
  • Imagine you are a defense contractor on top of the world.
  • You would argue that no other widget on the market can beat the C2000, no nation can ever gain widget superiority if the government just buys the C2000—and so they do.
  • You get the contract.
  • You can almost hear the champagne corks popping.
  • Finally, you are making money hand over fist manufacturing the C2000.
  • Are you for it?
  • If the nation stays at peace, you will still sell the C2000.
  • You are already on top of the world, remember?
  • That's certainly good for you; more C2000s means more profit.
  • What would you choose?
  • Even if you don't accept this, try to accept that war is financially disadvantageous to 99 percent of the business owners in the country and that this is new and meaningful.
  • If you are a masseuse, your massage oils might come from Indonesia.
  • In point #7, war would cost you your foreign customers.
  • It used to be that if you conquered another nation, your soldiers became looters and the military got to haul off everything of value in the country.
  • If you visit Rome and make your way to the Forum, nearby you will see the Arch of Titus.
  • If you think about it, it is hard to come up with an exception.
  • Now, in most places you can smoke in your car, in your home, and in remote places away from civilized people.
  • More precisely, it catalogues and tracks them and then allows you to communicate with them easily.
  • 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.
  • Also, simply having a Facebook friend in Albania will tend to make you more interested in the events of Albania.
  • More information leads to more peace, unless you want to argue that ignorance is more peaceful.
  • You still can buy it from the government's bookstore; a recent one ran about two thousand pages and cost about $200.
  • Some argue, Be careful what you ask for.
  • Maybe you don't think this deserves its own point.
  • Would you regard this as good?
  • And if everyone you know speaks English and it is the language of the world, commerce, the Internet, and success, what will be the primary language you teach your children?
  • Honestly, if we all spoke the same language today, would you want to change that?
  • With money, you can buy machinery or hire workers to do your work.
  • If your father is American and your mother Chinese, you will have a different understanding of differences between those countries, and, on balance, will be less amenable to war between those nations.
  • When you have visited a place, you will find it harder to advocate its destruction.
  • How many do you think there are now—ten, twenty, fifty million?
  • You love your country's ideals, goals, values, and aspirations.
  • You view it as your duty to protest when people who do not hold to those values gain power.
  • Can you imagine the public reaction to that today: A quarter of a million people killed or wounded in a single day?
  • I hope that along the way you thought of a few I missed, a few trends or developments that lead toward peace.
  • Whether it is the notion of manufacturing meat or having the computer tell you what you should order at the restaurant, you may have cringed and thought, "Man, that's kind of creepy."
  • You have invented an elixir not of memory, but of reminding.
  • When Augustine finally asked, "What are you doing?," Ambrose replied that he was reading.
  • The libraries that existed, such as the one at Alexandria, contained reading rooms because when you read a book, you read it aloud.
  • You processed the information through your ears.
  • When you reach a step you do not understand, do you not start reading out loud really slowly?
  • In this way, you are processing aurally, which is much slower but more focused than silent reading.
  • It turns out that, even when doing what you love, both passion and profit matter—but that particular piece of wisdom came later with age.
  • Though the world foreseen in this book may seem far away to you, I believe it will be achieved—and once achieved, that it will grow in stability over time.
  • If the whole world had only ten thousand people, how many breakthroughs would you expect?
  • Instead, you have to find small things over which to argue, like whether the capital gains tax should be raised.
  • I hope that, after reading this far, you appreciate that for our age, this is no idle boast.
  • You might be asking, Then what?
  • You cannot touch love either; but you feel the sweetness that it pours into everything.
  • Without love you would not be happy or want to play.
  • You ransack your budget of historic facts much as you would hunt for a bit of silk in a rag-bag.
  • You are sure it is somewhere in your mind near the top--you saw it there the other day when you were looking up the beginnings of the Reformation.
  • You are amazed at all the things you know which are not on the examination paper.
  • You are amazed at all the things you know which are not on the examination paper.
  • In desperation you seize the budget and dump everything out, and there in a corner is your man, serenely brooding on his own private thought, unconscious of the catastrophe which he has brought upon you.
  • Just then the proctor informs you that the time is up.
  • They are like people who when walking with you try to shorten their steps to suit yours; the hypocrisy in both cases is equally exasperating.
  • Love your Heavenly Father with your whole heart and soul, love every child of God as much as ever you can, and remember that the possibilities of good are greater than the possibilities of evil; and you have the key to Heaven.

  • I have chosen this paper because I want the spray of violets in the corner to tell you of my grateful love.
  • I want you to see baby Tom, the little blind and deaf and dumb child who has just come to our pretty garden.
  • If you do come, you will want to ask the kind people of Boston to help brighten Tommy's whole life.
  • I think you will like them too, so I will try to write them for you.
  • You will be glad to hear that Tommy has a kind lady to teach him, and that he is a pretty, active little fellow.
  • My Dear Mr. Brooks: Helen sends you a loving greeting this bright May-day.
  • It is very beautiful to think that you can tell so many people of the heavenly Father's tender love for all His children even when they are not gentle and noble as He wishes them to be.
  • I hope the glad news which you will tell them will make their hearts beat fast with joy and love.
  • I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I was when Mr. Anagnos told me that you had sent him some money to help educate "Baby Tom."
  • Then I knew that you had not forgotten the dear little child, for the gift brought with it the thought of tender sympathy.
  • He is the same restless little creature he was when you saw him.
  • Did you know that the blind children are going to have their commencement exercises in Tremont Temple, next Tuesday afternoon?
  • I enclose a ticket, hoping that you will come.
  • It is Sunday morning, and while I sit here in the library writing this letter you are teaching hundreds of people some of the grand and beautiful things about their heavenly Father.
  • Teacher sends her kind remembrances, and I send you with my picture my dear love.
  • My dear Mr. Munsell, Surely I need not tell you that your letter was very welcome.
  • I laughed when you spoke of old Neptune's wild moods.
  • Need I tell you that I was more than delighted to hear that you are really interested in the "tea"?
  • I will see you to-morrow and then we can make the rest of our plans.
  • You remember teacher and I told you Sunday that I wanted to have a little tea in aid of the kindergarten.
  • You remember teacher and I told you Sunday that I wanted to have a little tea in aid of the kindergarten.
  • Teacher said yesterday, that perhaps Mrs. Spaulding would be willing to let us have her beautiful house, and [I] thought I would ask you about it.
  • Do you think Mrs. Spaulding would help me, if I wrote to her?
  • Please let me know what you think about the house, and try to forgive me for troubling you so much.
  • My dear Carrie--You are to look upon it as a most positive proof of my love that I write to you to-day.
  • My dear Carrie--You are to look upon it as a most positive proof of my love that I write to you to-day.
  • Nevertheless, I must tell you that we are alive,--that we reached home safely, and that we speak of you daily, and enjoy your interesting letters very much.
  • Do you like to ride?
  • Mildred is a sweet little sister and I am sure you would love her.
  • I thank you very much for your photograph.
  • I do not write on a Braille tablet, as you suppose, but on a grooved board like the piece which I enclose.
  • You could not read Braille; for it is written in dots, not at all like ordinary letters.
  • What was the book you sent me for my birthday?
  • I have loved you for a long time, but I did not think you had ever heard of me until your sweet message came.
  • I send you with this letter a pretty book which my teacher thinks will interest you, and my picture.
  • You must have wondered why your letter has not had an answer, and perhaps you have thought Teacher and me very naughty indeed.
  • You must have wondered why your letter has not had an answer, and perhaps you have thought Teacher and me very naughty indeed.
  • You see, it is not very pleasant to write all about one's self.
  • The reports which you have read in the paper about me are not true at all.
  • We received the Silent Worker which you sent, and I wrote right away to the editor to tell him that it was a mistake.
  • I hope you will write to me as often as you can.
  • Now I am going to tell you a secret.
  • Then I shall see you, and dear Mr. Bell, and Elsie and Daisy again!
  • I would like to feel a parrot talk, it would be so much fun! but I would be pleased with, and love any little creature you send me.
  • A lady seemed surprised that I loved flowers when I could not see their beautiful colors, and when I assured her I did love them, she said, "no doubt you feel the colors with your fingers."
  • You can never imagine how I felt when I stood in the presence of Niagara until you have the same mysterious sensations yourself.
  • You can never imagine how I felt when I stood in the presence of Niagara until you have the same mysterious sensations yourself.
  • I suppose you feel so, too, when you gaze up to the stars in the stillness of the night, do you not?...
  • How you would have enjoyed hearing him tell about Venice!
  • You see, none of my friends describe things to me so vividly and so beautifully as he does....
  • Oct. 23, 1894. ...The school is very pleasant, and bless you! it is quite fashionable....
  • ...You know our kind teachers take us to see everything which they think will interest us, and we learn a great deal in that delightful way.
  • I only wish you could have seen and heard him!
  • Indeed, you can never know all the comfort you have given us.
  • I am sure you would like to know Mr. and Mrs. Hutton, they are so kind and interesting.
  • I can never tell you how much pleasure they have given us.
  • Have you read the beautiful poem, "Waiting"?
  • As I sit by the window writing to you, it is so lovely to have the soft, cool breezes fan my cheek and to feel that the hard work of last year is over!
  • We only need you, dear Mr. Hitz, to complete our happiness.
  • Teacher and Mrs. Hopkins both say you must come as soon as you can!
  • We will try to make you comfortable.
  • Have you ever been at Dr. Crouter's Institution?
  • Mr. Howes has probably given you a full account of our doings.
  • We had looked forward to seeing you there, and so we were greatly disappointed that you did not come.
  • We think of you so, so often! and our hearts go out to you in tenderest sympathy; and you know better than this poor letter can tell you how happy we always are to have you with us!
  • We spent about three weeks in Boston, after leaving New York, and I need not tell you we had a most delightful time.
  • But, however this may be, I cannot now write the letter which has lain in my thought for you so long.
  • I know you want to hear how I like my school.
  • I do wish you could come and see for yourself what a beautiful school it is!
  • You will be glad to hear that I passed my examinations successfully.
  • You must tell Mr. Howells when you see him, that we are living in his house....
  • You must tell Mr. Howells when you see him, that we are living in his house....
  • But Johnson, and "The Plague" and everything else must wait a few minutes this afternoon, while I say, thank you, my dear Mrs. Hutton....
  • I think you remember Mr. Chamberlin, the "Listener" in the Boston Transcript.
  • But I know you want to hear about my examinations.
  • I cannot tell you how much I enjoy the country.
  • So you can well imagine how strong and brown I am....
  • This is the first opportunity I have had to write to you since we came here last Monday.
  • Do you know, I cannot help feeling sorry for these trees with all their fashionable airs?
  • You will think I'm pining away for my beloved Wrentham, which is true in one sense and not in another.
  • But, as you know, my heart is usually brimful of happiness.
  • December 22, [1898] ...I suppose Mr. Keith writes you the work-a-day news.
  • You will be glad to hear that I enjoy Mathematics now.
  • TO MRS. LAURENCE HUTTON 12 Newbury Street, Boston, January 17, 1899. ...Have you seen Kipling's "Dreaming True," or "Kitchener's School?"
  • Of course you have read about the "Gordon Memorial College," which the English people are to erect at Khartoum.
  • So you see, I had a foretaste of the pleasure which I hope some day to have of visiting Florence.
  • Why, bless you, I thought I wrote to you the day after the "Eclogues" arrived, and told you how glad I was to have them!
  • Perhaps you never got that letter.
  • You will be glad to hear that the books from England are coming now.
  • I have just had some pictures taken, and if they are good, I would like to send one to Mr. Rogers, if you think he would like to have it.
  • You will be glad to hear that my mother, and little sister and brother are coming north to spend this summer with me.
  • TO MR. WILLIAM WADE Wrentham, Mass., June 5, 1899. ...Linnie Haguewood's letter, which you sent me some weeks ago, interested me very much.
  • I cannot make out anything written in my hand, so you see, Ragnhild has got ahead of me in some things.
  • But you must not think I blame any one.
  • TO MRS. SAMUEL RICHARD FULLER Wrentham, October 20, 1899. ...I suppose it is time for me to tell you something about our plans for the winter.
  • Why, you yourself seem to think that I taught you American braille, when you do not know a single letter in the system!
  • Perhaps, if you would send a copy of this to the head of the Cambridge School, it might enlighten his mind on a few subjects, on which he seems to be in total darkness just now....
  • You are studying English history, aren't you.
  • So you may imagine that we look quite like peacocks, only we've no trains....
  • Colonel Roosevelt was there, on Harvard's side; but bless you, he wore a white sweater, and no crimson that we know of!
  • I do not think I have told you that my dear teacher is reading "The Faery Queen" to me.
  • You know a student's life is of necessity somewhat circumscribed and narrow and crowds out almost everything that is not in books....
  • TO MR. JOHN HITZ 14 Coolidge Ave., Cambridge, Nov. 26, 1900. ...--has already communicated with you in regard to her and my plan of establishing an institution for deaf and blind children.
  • Do tell me what you think about Dr. Bell's suggestion.
  • Tell me truly, do you think me as bad as that?
  • You must believe that.
  • If you doubt it, you'd better come and see for yourself.
  • Perhaps I shall take up these studies later; but I've said goodbye to Mathematics forever, and I assure you, I was delighted to see the last of those horrid goblins!
  • Katie played with Miss Rhoades's rings and took them away, saying with a merry laugh, "You shall not have them again!"
  • TO MRS. LAURENCE HUTTON 14 Coolidge Avenue, Cambridge, December 27, 1900. ...So you read about our class luncheon in the papers?
  • Did I tell you in my last letter that I had a new dress, a real party dress with low neck and short sleeves and quite a train?
  • TO MR. WILLIAM WADE Cambridge, February 2, 1901. ...By the way, have you any specimens of English braille especially printed for those who have lost their sight late in life or have fingers hardened by long toil, so that their touch is less sensitive than that of other blind people?
  • Even Greek can be embossed in it, as you know.
  • You see, I use a typewriter--it is my right hand man, so to speak.
  • I know you will be amused when I tell you that I am deeply interested in politics.
  • If it happens to be blue, and you tell her so triumphantly, she is likely to answer, Thank you.
  • I am glad you know.
  • Why did you ask me?
  • Once when some one asked her to define "love," she replied, "Why, bless you, that is easy; it is what everybody feels for everybody else."
  • I assure you I know quite enough.
  • Have you seen the paper I wrote for the 'report'?
  • You see at a glance that she is blind.
  • The two letters "c-a," you see, had reminded her of Fridays "lesson"--not that she had any idea that cake was the name of the thing, but it was simply a matter of association, I suppose.
  • She follows with her hands every motion you make, and she knew that I was looking for the doll.
  • If you want to, you may read it to my friends.
  • Since I wrote you, Helen and I have gone to live all by ourselves in a little garden-house about a quarter of a mile from her home, only a short distance from Ivy Green, the Keller homestead.
  • As I wrote you, I meant to go slowly at first.
  • There is a piazza in front, covered with vines that grow so luxuriantly that you have to part them to see the garden beyond.
  • You will be glad to hear that my experiment is working out finely.
  • This morning she planted her doll and showed me that she expected her to grow as tall as I. You must see that she is very bright, but you have no idea how cunning she is.
  • This morning she planted her doll and showed me that she expected her to grow as tall as I. You must see that she is very bright, but you have no idea how cunning she is.
  • I must write you a line this morning because something very important has happened.
  • In a previous letter I think I wrote you that "mug" and "milk" had given Helen more trouble than all the rest.
  • Finding no trace of the cracker there, she pointed to my stomach and spelled "eat," meaning, "Did you eat it?"
  • It's only fair to the child, anyhow, and it saves you much unnecessary trouble.
  • You see, my mind is undisciplined, full of skips and jumps, and here and there a lot of things huddled together in dark corners.
  • It would astonish you to see how many words she learns in an hour in this pleasant manner.
  • Please give my kind regards to Mr. Anagnos and let him see my letter, if you think best.
  • I shall write freely to you and tell you everything, on one condition: It is this: you must promise never to show my letters to any one.
  • You would be amused to see me hold a squealing pig in my arms, while Helen feels it all over, and asks countless questions--questions not easy to answer either.
  • You see, I'm only one inch ahead!
  • Helen is about the same--pale and thin; but you mustn't think she is really ill.
  • I said: You struck Viney and kicked her and hurt her.
  • You were very naughty, and I cannot kiss naughty girl.
  • Will you go with me and find Viney?
  • Helen's pencil-writing is excellent, as you will see from the enclosed letter, which she wrote for her own amusement.
  • You see, I had to use words and images with which she was familiar through the sense of touch.
  • Mrs. Keller took the baby in her arms, and when we had succeeded in pacifying her, I asked Helen, "What did you do to baby?"
  • I do not wonder you were surprised to hear that I was going to write something for the report.
  • You see, she had an idea that the colour of our thoughts matched that of our skin.
  • I have two copies, and will send you one; but you mustn't show it to anybody.
  • Ask him to let you see it.
  • You will go upstairs.
  • You have probably read, ere this, Helen's second letter to the little girls.
  • You will see from her letter that she uses many pronouns correctly.
  • Do you remember what a happy time we had last Christmas?
  • What would happen, do you think, if some one should try to measure our intelligence by our ability to define the commonest words we use?
  • The ring you sent her was in the toe of the stocking, and when I told her you gave it to Santa Claus for her, she said, "I do love Mrs. Hopkins."
  • I suppose you got Helen's letter.
  • I said to her, "You are a naughty girl."
  • You know how the children at the Institution detest it.
  • It was nothing but excitement from first to last--drives, luncheons, receptions, and all that they involve when you have an eager, tireless child like Helen on your hands.
  • It is always: "Oh, Miss Sullivan, please come and tell us what Helen means," or "Miss Sullivan, won't you please explain this to Helen?
  • What will you do with the dollar?
  • I will come to see you when the sun shines.
  • The Sunday-school was in session when we arrived, and I wish you could have seen the sensation Helen's entrance caused.
  • Everybody laughed at her antics, and you would have thought they were leaving a place of amusement rather than a church.
  • I wonder if the days seem as interminable to you as they do to me.
  • Do you realize that this is the last letter I shall write to you for a long, long time?
  • The next word that you receive from me will be in a yellow envelope, and it will tell you when we shall reach Boston.
  • I am too happy to write letters; but I must tell you about our visit to Cincinnati.
  • Do you remember Dr. Garcelon, who was Governor of Maine several years ago?
  • "What would you like, then?" asked the Doctor.
  • You label it SOUR, and he adopts your symbol.
  • If you had called these sensations respectively BLACK and WHITE, he would have adopted them as readily; but he would mean by BLACK and WHITE the same things that he means by SWEET and SOUR.
  • I said: Why do you write those sentences on the board?
  • Wouldn't the children understand if you talked to them about Helen?
  • Turning to my friend, she asked, "Did you cry loud for poor little Florence?"
  • Will you give her yours?
  • Of course, you cannot help it, and I love you just as well as if you were the most beautiful creature in the world.
  • There was a hopeless look in the dull eye that I could not help noticing, and then, as I was thinking where I had seen that horse before, she looked full at me and said, 'Black Beauty, is that you?'
  • I said to her, "Tell me, when you have read the poem through, who you think the mother is."
  • I said: "No. You cannot understand it yet."
  • She was quiet for a moment, and then asked, with spirit: How do you know that I cannot understand?
  • You must remember, dear teacher, that Greek parents were very particular with their children, and they used to let them listen to wise words, and I think they understood some of them.
  • Please tell your little pupil many things when you have much time.
  • Did you ever see God?
  • I then asked her, "Can you think of your soul as separate from your body?"
  • At another time she asked, "Do you not think we would be very much happier always, if we did not have to die?"
  • Why do you not teach me to talk like them?
  • If you knew all the joy I feel in being able to speak to you to-day, I think you would have some idea of the value of speech to the deaf, and you would understand why I want every little deaf child in all this great world to have an opportunity to learn to speak.
  • Why, I use speech constantly, and I cannot begin to tell you how much pleasure it gives me to do so.
  • So you see what a blessing speech is to me.
  • Can you tell me in what paper the article appeared accusing Helen of plagiarism, and giving passages from both stories?
  • Thank you very much for the Report, Gazette, and Helen's Journal.
  • And what do you think he did next!
  • It makes me very happy to please you and my dear teacher.
  • I wonder if you would like to have me tell you a pretty dream which I had a long time ago when I was a very little child?
  • Teacher says it was a day-dream, and she thinks you would be delighted to hear it.
  • I was a very happy little child with rosy cheeks, and large blue eyes, and the most beautiful golden ringlets you can imagine.
  • Do you like my day-dream?
  • If you do, perhaps I will dream again for you some time.
  • Teacher and all of your friends send you their love.
  • I shall be so glad when you come home, for I greatly miss you.
  • I will tell you how King Frost first thought of this kind work, for it is a strange story.
  • But, children, you must make King Frost a visit the very first opportunity you have, and see for yourselves this wonderful palace.
  • The old King will welcome you kindly, for he loves children, and it is his chief delight to give them pleasure.
  • You must know that King Frost, like all other kings, has great treasures of gold and precious stones; but as he is a generous old monarch, he endeavours to make a right use of his riches.
  • I will tell you how King Frost happened to think of painting the leaves, for it is a strange story.
  • I hasten to assure you that Helen could not have received any idea of the story from any of her relations or friends here, none of whom can communicate with her readily enough to impress her with the details of a story of that character.
  • Beautiful flower, you have taught me to see a little way into the hidden heart of things.
  • Forgetful of the tomb, you lay the foundation of your palaces.
  • More even than this, in your wickedness you destroy the peaceful homes of your clients!
  • Without a touch of remorse you drive the father from his land, clasping to his bosom his household gods and his half-naked children.
  • You forget that death comes to the rich and the poor alike, and comes once for all; but remember, Acheron could not be bribed by gold to ferry the crafty Prometheus back to the sunlit world.
  • What old people say you cannot do, you try and find that you can.
  • "What!" exclaimed the Indian as he went out the gate, "do you mean to starve us?"
  • Could you, in such a case, tell surely of any company of civilized men which belonged to the most respected class?
  • Beside, clothes introduced sewing, a kind of work which you may call endless; a woman's dress, at least, is never done.
  • You could sit up as late as you pleased, and, whenever you got up, go abroad without any landlord or house-lord dogging you for rent.
  • You could sit up as late as you pleased, and, whenever you got up, go abroad without any landlord or house-lord dogging you for rent.
  • What mean ye by saying that the poor ye have always with you, or that the fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?
  • If you would know the history of these homesteads, inquire at the bank where they are mortgaged.
  • Or I could refer you to Ireland, which is marked as one of the white or enlightened spots on the map.
  • Are you one of the ninety-seven who fail, or the three who succeed?
  • Why do you take up a handful of dirt?
  • When you have got my ornaments ready, I will wear them.
  • "But," says one, "you do not mean that the students should go to work with their hands instead of their heads?"
  • You will in the meanwhile have earned your fare, and arrive there some time tomorrow, or possibly this evening, if you are lucky enough to get a job in season.
  • You will in the meanwhile have earned your fare, and arrive there some time tomorrow, or possibly this evening, if you are lucky enough to get a job in season.
  • Instead of going to Fitchburg, you will be working here the greater part of the day.
  • And so, if the railroad reached round the world, I think that I should keep ahead of you; and as for seeing the country and getting experience of that kind, I should have to cut your acquaintance altogether.
  • This never costs anything to speak of, unless you plant more than enough.
  • When you have kneaded it well, mould it, and bake it under a cover, that is, in a baking kettle.
  • Indeed, the more you have of such things the poorer you are.
  • Even those who seem for a long while not to have any, if you inquire more narrowly you will find have some stored in somebody's barn.
  • But I have since learned that trade curses everything it handles; and though you trade in messages from heaven, the whole curse of trade attaches to the business.
  • You must have a genius for charity as well as for anything else.
  • Men say, practically, Begin where you are and such as you are, without aiming mainly to become of more worth, and with kindness aforethought go about doing good.
  • I can find you a Newfoundland dog that will do as much.
  • Being superior to physical suffering, it sometimes chanced that they were superior to any consolation which the missionaries could offer; and the law to do as you would be done by fell with less persuasiveness on the ears of those who, for their part, did not care how they were done by, who loved their enemies after a new fashion, and came very near freely forgiving them all they did.
  • Be sure that you give the poor the aid they most need, though it be your example which leaves them far behind.
  • If you give money, spend yourself with it, and do not merely abandon it to them.
  • If you give him money, he will perhaps buy more rags with it.
  • You boast of spending a tenth part of your income in charity; maybe you should spend the nine tenths so, and done with it.
  • You boast of spending a tenth part of your income in charity; maybe you should spend the nine tenths so, and done with it.
  • If you should ever be betrayed into any of these philanthropies, do not let your left hand know what your right hand does, for it is not worth knowing.
  • It makes but little difference whether you are committed to a farm or the county jail.
  • The oftener you go there the more it will please you, if it is good.
  • One value even of the smallest well is, that when you look into it you see that earth is not continent but insular.
  • Our life is like a German Confederacy, made up of petty states, with its boundary forever fluctuating, so that even a German cannot tell you how it is bounded at any moment.
  • Did you ever think what those sleepers are that underlie the railroad?
  • The penny-post is, commonly, an institution through which you seriously offer a man that penny for his thoughts which is so often safely offered in jest.
  • If a man should walk through this town and see only the reality, where, think you, would the "Mill-dam" go to?
  • Weather this danger and you are safe, for the rest of the way is down hill.
  • Will you be a reader, a student merely, or a seer?
  • Read your fate, see what is before you, and walk on into futurity.
  • Follow your genius closely enough, and it will not fail to show you a fresh prospect every hour.
  • He had never seen such a dull and out-of-the-way place; the folks were all gone off; why, you couldn't even hear the whistle!
  • In one heavy thunder-shower the lightning struck a large pitch pine across the pond, making a very conspicuous and perfectly regular spiral groove from top to bottom, an inch or more deep, and four or five inches wide, as you would groove a walking-stick.
  • Men frequently say to me, "I should think you would feel lonesome down there, and want to be nearer to folks, rainy and snowy days and nights especially."
  • How far apart, think you, dwell the two most distant inhabitants of yonder star, the breadth of whose disk cannot be appreciated by our instruments?
  • This which you put seems to me not to be the most important question.
  • You want room for your thoughts to get into sailing trim and run a course or two before they make their port.
  • In my house we were so near that we could not begin to hear--we could not speak low enough to be heard; as when you throw two stones into calm water so near that they break each other's undulations.
  • You need not rest your reputation on the dinners you give.
  • You need not rest your reputation on the dinners you give.
  • He cut his trees level and close to the ground, that the sprouts which came up afterward might be more vigorous and a sled might slide over the stumps; and instead of leaving a whole tree to support his corded wood, he would pare it away to a slender stake or splinter which you could break off with your hand at last.
  • He was so genuine and unsophisticated that no introduction would serve to introduce him, more than if you introduced a woodchuck to your neighbor.
  • He had got to find him out as you did.
  • If you told him that such a one was coming, he did as if he thought that anything so grand would expect nothing of himself, but take all the responsibility on itself, and let him be forgotten still.
  • May be the man you hoe with is inclined to race; then, by gorry, your mind must be there; you think of weeds.
  • While you are planting the seed, he cries--"Drop it, drop it--cover it up, cover it up--pull it up, pull it up, pull it up."
  • That's Roman wormwood--that's pigweed--that's sorrel--that's piper-grass--have at him, chop him up, turn his roots upward to the sun, don't let him have a fibre in the shade, if you do he'll turn himself t' other side up and be as green as a leek in two days.
  • But above all harvest as early as possible, if you would escape frosts and have a fair and salable crop; you may save much loss by this means.
  • I have heard of many going astray even in the village streets, when the darkness was so thick that you could cut it with a knife, as the saying is.
  • If you would know the flavor of huckleberries, ask the cowboy or the partridge.
  • It is a vulgar error to suppose that you have tasted huckleberries who never plucked them.
  • At length you slowly raise, pulling hand over hand, some horned pout squeaking and squirming to the upper air.
  • Viewed from a hilltop it reflects the color of the sky; but near at hand it is of a yellowish tint next the shore where you can see the sand, then a light green, which gradually deepens to a uniform dark green in the body of the pond.
  • The shore is composed of a belt of smooth rounded white stones like paving-stones, excepting one or two short sand beaches, and is so steep that in many places a single leap will carry you into water over your head; and were it not for its remarkable transparency, that would be the last to be seen of its bottom till it rose on the opposite side.
  • You may see from a boat, in calm weather, near the sandy eastern shore, where the water is eight or ten feet deep, and also in some other parts of the pond, some circular heaps half a dozen feet in diameter by a foot in height, consisting of small stones less than a hen's egg in size, where all around is bare sand.
  • From a hilltop you can see a fish leap in almost any part; for not a pickerel or shiner picks an insect from this smooth surface but it manifestly disturbs the equilibrium of the whole lake.
  • Sometimes it would come floating up to the shore; but when you went toward it, it would go back into deep water and disappear.
  • The hills which form its shores are so steep, and the woods on them were then so high, that, as you looked down from the west end, it had the appearance of an amphitheatre for some land of sylvan spectacle.
  • How can you expect the birds to sing when their groves are cut down?
  • As if you were to raise your potatoes in the churchyard!
  • They are so much alike that you would say they must be connected under ground.
  • 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.
  • Do you ever fish?
  • I warn you, mothers, that my sympathies do not always make the usual phil-anthropic distinctions.
  • If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal--that is your success.
  • All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself.
  • The wonder is how they, how you and I, can live this slimy, beastly life, eating and drinking.
  • If you would be chaste, you must be temperate.
  • If you would avoid uncleanness, and all the sins, work earnestly, though it be at cleaning a stable.
  • What avails it that you are Christian, if you are not purer than the heathen, if you deny yourself no more, if you are not more religious?
  • A voice said to him--Why do you stay here and live this mean moiling life, when a glorious existence is possible for you?
  • How do you like the world to-day?
  • I will go with you gladly soon, but I am just concluding a serious meditation.
  • But that we may not be delayed, you shall be digging the bait meanwhile.
  • I would advise you to set in the spade down yonder among the ground-nuts, where you see the johnswort waving.
  • I think that I may warrant you one worm to every three sods you turn up, if you look well in among the roots of the grass, as if you were weeding.
  • Or, if you choose to go farther, it will not be unwise, for I have found the increase of fair bait to be very nearly as the squares of the distances.
  • The parent will sometimes roll and spin round before you in such a dishabille, that you cannot, for a few moments, detect what kind of creature it is.
  • You may even tread on them, or have your eyes on them for a minute, without discovering them.
  • You only need sit still long enough in some attractive spot in the woods that all its inhabitants may exhibit themselves to you by turns.
  • You only need sit still long enough in some attractive spot in the woods that all its inhabitants may exhibit themselves to you by turns.
  • The more you think of it, the less the difference.
  • Like the wasps, before I finally went into winter quarters in November, I used to resort to the northeast side of Walden, which the sun, reflected from the pitch pine woods and the stony shore, made the fireside of the pond; it is so much pleasanter and wholesomer to be warmed by the sun while you can be, than by an artificial fire.
  • Nowadays the host does not admit you to his hearth, but has got the mason to build one for yourself somewhere in his alley, and hospitality is the art of keeping you at the greatest distance.
  • But the ice itself is the object of most interest, though you must improve the earliest opportunity to study it.
  • These bubbles are from an eightieth to an eighth of an inch in diameter, very clear and beautiful, and you see your face reflected in them through the ice.
  • You can always see a face in the fire.
  • He was a man of manners, like one who had seen the world, and was capable of more civil speech than you could well attend to.
  • What do you mean by alarming the citadel at this time of night consecrated to me?
  • Whichever side you walk in the woods the partridge bursts away on whirring wings, jarring the snow from the dry leaves and twigs on high, which comes sifting down in the sunbeams like golden dust, for this brave bird is not to be scared by winter.
  • But I fear that he was not the wiser for all I told him, for every time I attempted to answer his questions he interrupted me by asking, "What do you do here?"
  • It is hardly as if you had seen a wild creature when a rabbit or a partridge bursts away, only a natural one, as much to be expected as rustling leaves.
  • These alders loomed through the mist at regular intervals as you walked half way round the pond.
  • When such holes freeze, and a rain succeeds, and finally a new freezing forms a fresh smooth ice over all, it is beautifully mottled internally by dark figures, shaped somewhat like a spider's web, what you may call ice rosettes, produced by the channels worn by the water flowing from all sides to a centre.
  • Like the water, the Walden ice, seen near at hand, has a green tint, but at a distance is beautifully blue, and you can easily tell it from the white ice of the river, or the merely greenish ice of some ponds, a quarter of a mile off.
  • As it flows it takes the forms of sappy leaves or vines, making heaps of pulpy sprays a foot or more in depth, and resembling, as you look down on them, the laciniated, lobed, and imbricated thalluses of some lichens; or you are reminded of coral, of leopard's paws or birds' feet, of brains or lungs or bowels, and excrements of all kinds.
  • You find thus in the very sands an anticipation of the vegetable leaf.
  • Thus, also, you pass from the lumpish grub in the earth to the airy and fluttering butterfly.
  • You here see perchance how blood-vessels are formed.
  • You may melt your metals and cast them into the most beautiful moulds you can; they will never excite me like the forms which this molten earth flows out into.
  • You may melt your metals and cast them into the most beautiful moulds you can; they will never excite me like the forms which this molten earth flows out into.
  • No, you don't--chickaree--chickaree.
  • You may tell by looking at any twig of the forest, ay, at your very wood-pile, whether its winter is past or not.
  • The sulphur-like pollen of the pitch pine soon covered the pond and the stones and rotten wood along the shore, so that you could have collected a barrelful.
  • If you are chosen town clerk, forsooth, you cannot go to Tierra del Fuego this summer: but you may go to the land of infernal fire nevertheless.
  • Nay, be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.
  • If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.
  • It is a ridiculous demand which England and America make, that you shall speak so that they can understand you.
  • As if that were important, and there were not enough to understand you without them.
  • Extra vagance! it depends on how you are yarded.
  • Say what you have to say, not what you ought.
  • It is not so bad as you are.
  • It looks poorest when you are richest.
  • You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse.
  • God will see that you do not want society.
  • You are defended from being a trifler.
  • The interest and the conversation are about costume and manners chiefly; but a goose is a goose still, dress it as you will.
  • But presently the traveller's horse sank in up to the girths, and he observed to the boy, "I thought you said that this bog had a hard bottom."
  • "So it has," answered the latter, "but you have not got half way to it yet."
  • Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction--a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse.
  • So will help you God, and so only.
  • Every nail driven should be as another rivet in the machine of the universe, you carrying on the work.
  • It is not so important that many should be as good as you, as that there be some absolute goodness somewhere; for that will leaven the whole lump.
  • Oh for a man who is a man, and, as my neighbor says, has a bone in his back which you cannot pass your hand through!
  • You must hire or squat somewhere, and raise but a small crop, and eat that soon.
  • You must live within yourself, and depend upon yourself always tucked up and ready for a start, and not have many affairs.
  • You do not resist cold and hunger, the winds and the waves, thus obstinately; you quietly submit to a thousand similar necessities.
  • You do not resist cold and hunger, the winds and the waves, thus obstinately; you quietly submit to a thousand similar necessities.
  • You do not put your head into the fire.
  • You are so eloquent.
  • Do you know that profound thinker?
  • Why has fate given you two such splendid children?
  • And really you appreciate them less than anyone, and so you don't deserve to have them.
  • "What would you have me do?" he said at last.
  • You know I did all a father could for their education, and they have both turned out fools.
  • If you were not a father there would be nothing I could reproach you with, said Anna Pavlovna, looking up pensively.
  • "Have you never thought of marrying your prodigal son Anatole?" she asked.
  • She has a brother; I think you know him, he married Lise Meinen lately.
  • "Mind, Annette, I hope you have not played a wicked trick on me," she added, turning to her hostess.
  • "Soyez tranquille, Lise, you will always be prettier than anyone else," replied Anna Pavlovna.
  • "You know," said the princess in the same tone of voice and still in French, turning to a general, "my husband is deserting me?
  • Anna Pavlovna in dismay detained him with the words: Do you know the Abbe Morio?
  • "You think so?" rejoined Anna Pavlovna in order to say something and get away to attend to her duties as hostess.
  • Now then, what are you thinking of? she went on, turning to Prince Hippolyte.
  • But how are you to get that balance?
  • "You are off to the war, Prince?" said Anna Pavlovna.
  • Are you not ashamed to deprive us of your charming wife?
  • "I knew you would be here," replied Pierre.
  • Be the kindhearted man you always were, she said, trying to smile though tears were in her eyes.
  • This is what I expected from you--I knew your kindness!
  • You don't know how Kutuzov is pestered since his appointment as Commander in Chief.
  • I won't let you go!
  • Then tomorrow you will speak to the Emperor?
  • "And what do you think of this latest comedy, the coronation at Milan?" asked Anna Pavlovna, "and of the comedy of the people of Genoa and Lucca laying their petitions before Monsieur Buonaparte, and Monsieur Buonaparte sitting on a throne and granting the petitions of the nations?
  • Do you consider that assassination shows greatness of soul? said the little princess, smiling and drawing her work nearer to her.
  • "Won't you come over to the other table?" suggested Anna Pavlovna.
  • But won't you come to this other table? repeated Anna Pavlovna.
  • "But, my dear Monsieur Pierre," said she, "how do you explain the fact of a great man executing a duc--or even an ordinary man who--is innocent and untried?"
  • "He's a low fellow, say what you will," remarked Prince Hippolyte.
  • "How do you expect him to answer you all at once?" said Prince Andrew.
  • I was told a charming Moscow story today and must treat you to it.
  • "Go in, Annette, or you will catch cold," said the little princess, taking leave of Anna Pavlovna.
  • "I rely on you, my dear," said Anna Pavlovna, also in a low tone.
  • "Are you ready?" he asked his wife, looking past her.
  • "I am expecting you, Pierre," said the same voice, but gently and affectionately.
  • "Do you know, you are a terrible chap for all your innocent airs," continued the vicomte.
  • Hippolyte spluttered again, and amid his laughter said, And you were saying that the Russian ladies are not equal to the French?
  • What have you done to Mlle Scherer?
  • Well, have you at last decided on anything?
  • Are you going to be a guardsman or a diplomatist? asked Prince Andrew after a momentary silence.
  • But you must decide on something!
  • Write to me all about it, and I will help you in everything.
  • "Well, why are you going to the war?" asked Pierre.
  • How stupid you men all are not to have married her!
  • Excuse me for saying so, but you have no sense about women.
  • What an argumentative fellow you are, Monsieur Pierre!
  • Now you shall judge between us.
  • You know the Emperor spoke to him most graciously.
  • What do you think?
  • "When are you starting?" he asked.
  • What is it you are afraid of, Lise?
  • "I still can't understand what you are afraid of," said Prince Andrew slowly, not taking his eyes off his wife.
  • No, Andrew, I must say you have changed.
  • Oh, how you have...
  • "Your doctor tells you to go to bed earlier," said Prince Andrew.
  • You had better go.
  • I have long wanted to ask you, Andrew, why you have changed so to me?
  • You are going to the war and have no pity for me.
  • You treat me like an invalid or a child.
  • Did you behave like that six months ago?
  • "Lise, I beg you to desist," said Prince Andrew still more emphatically.
  • It seems so to you because...
  • I assure you I myself have experienced... and so... because...
  • Marry when you are old and good for nothing--or all that is good and noble in you will be lost.
  • You are the first and only one to whom I mention this, because I like you.
  • "You don't understand why I say this," he continued, "but it is the whole story of life.
  • But tie yourself up with a woman and, like a chained convict, you lose all freedom!
  • And all you have of hope and strength merely weighs you down and torments you with regret.
  • If you only knew what those society women are, and women in general!
  • When you meet them in society it seems as if there were something in them, but there's nothing, nothing, nothing!
  • "It seems funny to me," said Pierre, "that you, you should consider yourself incapable and your life a spoiled life.
  • You have everything before you, everything.
  • Let us talk about you, he added after a silence, smiling at his reassuring thoughts.
  • Only I haven't the least idea what I am to do; I wanted to consult you seriously.
  • I am fond of you, especially as you are the one live man among our whole set.
  • Choose what you will; it's all the same.
  • It suits you so badly--all this debauchery, dissipation, and the rest of it!
  • "What would you have, my dear fellow?" answered Pierre, shrugging his shoulders.
  • You give me your word of honor not to go?
  • Kuragin, you part our hands.
  • Wait a bit, you fellows....
  • First of all you must drink!
  • "Go on, you must drink it all," said Anatole, giving Pierre the last glass, "or I won't let you go!"
  • "You have a try, Hercules," said he, turning to Pierre.
  • Devil take you! came from different sides.
  • Have you gone mad?...
  • Why, you go giddy even on a staircase, exclaimed several voices.
  • But mind you come to dinner or I shall be offended, ma chere!
  • On behalf of the whole family I beg you to come, mon cher!
  • "You don't say so!" replied the countess.
  • How can you laugh at it, Count?
  • "Why do you say this young man is so rich?" asked the countess, turning away from the girls, who at once assumed an air of inattention.
  • "But do you know, my dear, that was a capital joke," said the count; and seeing that the elder visitor was not listening, he turned to the young ladies.
  • "You spoil her, Ilya," she added, turning to her husband.
  • How do you do, my dear?
  • I wish you many happy returns of your name day, said the visitor.
  • You see... was all Natasha managed to utter (to her everything seemed funny).
  • "Now then, go away and take your monstrosity with you," said the mother, pushing away her daughter with pretended sternness, and turning to the visitor she added: "She is my youngest girl."
  • You were meaning to go out, weren't you, Mamma?
  • You were meaning to go out, weren't you, Mamma?
  • Do you want the carriage? he asked his mother with a smile.
  • "I have already told you, Papa," said his son, "that if you don't wish to let me go, I'll stay.
  • What a pity you weren't at the Arkharovs' on Thursday.
  • How can you? said he, running up to her.
  • Well, if you do, so much the better, and you can go back to her!
  • How can you torture me and yourself like that, for a mere fancy? said Nicholas taking her hand.
  • You alone are everything! said Nicholas.
  • I don't like you to talk like that.
  • Don't you want to?
  • Would you like to kiss me? she whispered almost inaudibly, glancing up at him from under her brows, smiling, and almost crying from excitement.
  • "How funny you are!" he said, bending down to her and blushing still more, but he waited and did nothing.
  • "Natasha," he said, "you know that I love you, but..."
  • You are in love with me?
  • "With you I will be quite frank," said Anna Mikhaylovna.
  • "Vera," she said to her eldest daughter who was evidently not a favorite, "how is it you have so little tact?
  • Don't you see you are not wanted here?
  • "If you had told me sooner, Mamma, I would have gone," she replied as she rose to go to her own room.
  • "How often have I asked you not to take my things?" she said.
  • "You have a room of your own," and she took the inkstand from Nicholas.
  • "You always manage to do things at the wrong time," continued Vera.
  • You came rushing into the drawing room so that everyone felt ashamed of you.
  • And at your age what secrets can there be between Natasha and Boris, or between you two?
  • "Now, Vera, what does it matter to you?" said Natasha in defense, speaking very gently.
  • We don't interfere with you and Berg.
  • But I'll just tell Mamma how you are behaving with Boris.
  • You have no heart!
  • You are a Madame de Genlis and nothing more" (this nickname, bestowed on Vera by Nicholas, was considered very stinging), "and your greatest pleasure is to be unpleasant to people!
  • Go and flirt with Berg as much as you please, she finished quickly.
  • But don't let's talk about me; tell me how you managed everything.
  • How did you get things settled?
  • "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!
  • "Well, and to whom did you apply about Bory?" asked the countess.
  • You see yours is already an officer in the Guards, while my Nicholas is going as a cadet.
  • To whom did you apply?
  • He said to me, 'I am sorry I can do so little for you, dear Princess.
  • But, Nataly, you know my love for my son: I would do anything for his happiness!
  • Would you believe it, I have literally not a penny and don't know how to equip Boris.
  • It's now two o'clock and you dine at four.
  • He has been to the house, you know, and danced with the children.
  • Remember that, my dear, and be nice to him, as you so well know how to be.
  • "My dear," she said to her son, once more stimulating him by a touch, "you promised me!"
  • He wanted to thank you himself.
  • Believe me, Prince, a mother's heart will never forget what you have done for us.
  • Are you here on leave? he went on in his usual tone of indifference.
  • Are you living with your mother?
  • "Still the same; but what can you expect, this noise..." said the princess, looking at Anna Mikhaylovna as at a stranger.
  • I have come, and am at your service to help you nurse my uncle.
  • I imagine what you have gone through, and she sympathetically turned up her eyes.
  • "On the contrary," replied the prince, who had plainly become depressed, "I shall be only too glad if you relieve me of that young man....
  • "How do you do, cousin?" said Pierre.
  • You don't recognize me?
  • I recognize you only too well, too well.
  • The count is suffering physically and mentally, and apparently you have done your best to increase his mental sufferings.
  • Hm.... If you wish to kill him, to kill him outright, you can see him...
  • You will let me know when I can see him.
  • He sent for Pierre and said to him: My dear fellow, if you are going to behave here as you did in Petersburg, you will end very badly; that is all I have to say to you.
  • The count is very, very ill, and you must not see him at all.
  • "Do you remember me?" asked Boris quietly with a pleasant smile.
  • "Count Rostov asks you to come to dinner today," said he, after a considerable pause which made Pierre feel uncomfortable.
  • Then you are his son, Ilya?
  • Only fancy, I didn't know you at first.
  • Do you remember how we went to the Sparrow Hills with Madame Jacquot?...
  • "You are mistaken," said Boris deliberately, with a bold and slightly sarcastic smile.
  • So you are Boris?
  • And what do you think of the Boulogne expedition?
  • The English will come off badly, you know, if Napoleon gets across the Channel.
  • Just now they are talking about you and your father.
  • "And it must seem to you," said Boris flushing slightly, but not changing his tone or attitude, "it must seem to you that everyone is trying to get something out of the rich man?"
  • But I just wish to say, to avoid misunderstandings, that you are quite mistaken if you reckon me or my mother among such people.
  • Do you suppose I... who could think?...
  • Perhaps you did not like it?
  • Will you come to dinner at the Rostovs'?
  • "No, but I say," said Pierre, calming down, "you are a wonderful fellow!
  • What you have just said is good, very good.
  • Of course you don't know me.
  • You might think that I...
  • It's queer," he added after a pause, "that you should have suspected me!"
  • "And so you think Napoleon will manage to get an army across?" asked Boris with a smile.
  • But why do you expect that he will leave us anything?
  • "What is the matter with you, my dear?" she said crossly to the maid who kept her waiting some minutes.
  • Don't you wish to serve me?
  • Then I'll find you another place.
  • You see, my dear...
  • Well, you see, Count, I want some money.
  • "When would you like them, your excellency?" asked Dmitri.
  • Do you wish it brought at once?
  • You expect to make an income out of the government?
  • "Well, my boy, you'll get along wherever you go--foot or horse--that I'll warrant," said Shinshin, patting him on the shoulder and taking his feet off the sofa.
  • "You have only lately arrived?" the countess asked him.
  • You have not yet seen my husband?
  • You have been in Paris recently, I believe?
  • You are very kind...
  • "Well, you old sinner," she went on, turning to the count who was kissing her hand, "you're feeling dull in Moscow, I daresay?
  • You must look for husbands for them whether you like it or not....
  • You must look for husbands for them whether you like it or not....
  • It would be better if you went to the war.
  • *Do you know the proverb?
  • *(4) I just ask you that.
  • "What you said just now was splendid!" said his partner Julie.
  • What are you making such a noise about over there?
  • "What are you thumping the table for?" she demanded of the hussar, "and why are you exciting yourself?
  • Do you think the French are here?
  • You know my son's going, Marya Dmitrievna?
  • You may die in your bed or God may spare you in a battle, replied Marya Dmitrievna's deep voice, which easily carried the whole length of the table.
  • You may die in your bed or God may spare you in a battle, replied Marya Dmitrievna's deep voice, which easily carried the whole length of the table.
  • "You won't ask," Natasha's little brother was saying; "I know you won't ask!"
  • "You had better take care!" said the countess.
  • "Ice pudding, but you won't get any," said Marya Dmitrievna.
  • "Nicholas is going away in a week's time, his... papers... have come... he told me himself... but still I should not cry," and she showed a paper she held in her hand--with the verses Nicholas had written, "still, I should not cry, but you can't... no one can understand... what a soul he has!"
  • God is my witness," and she made the sign of the cross, "I love her so much, and all of you, only Vera...
  • "Sonya," she suddenly exclaimed, as if she had guessed the true reason of her friend's sorrow, "I'm sure Vera has said something to you since dinner?
  • Do you remember how we and Nicholas, all three of us, talked in the sitting room after supper?
  • I don't quite remember how, but don't you remember that it could all be arranged and how nice it all was?
  • And we are only second cousins, you know.
  • You know I have told him all about it.
  • "Don't you cry, Sonya, dear love, darling Sonya!" and she kissed her and laughed.
  • Do you think so?...
  • "Do you know, that fat Pierre who sat opposite me is so funny!" said Natasha, stopping suddenly.
  • Mamma told me to ask you to join the dancers.
  • Do you know the Daniel Cooper?
  • "Do you think he can last till morning?" asked the German, addressing Lorrain in French which he pronounced badly.
  • Ah, is it you, cousin?
  • "You have made the place warm, I must say," he remarked.
  • "And I?" he said; "do you think it is easier for me?
  • I love you all, like children of my own, as you know.
  • You know, Catiche, that we--you three sisters, Mamontov, and my wife-- are the count's only direct heirs.
  • You know, Catiche, that we--you three sisters, Mamontov, and my wife-- are the count's only direct heirs.
  • I know, I know how hard it is for you to talk or think of such matters.
  • Do you know I have sent for Pierre?
  • But... in short, the fact is... you know yourself that last winter the count made a will by which he left all his property, not to us his direct heirs, but to Pierre.
  • Do you understand that in consideration of the count's services, his request would be granted?...
  • "I can tell you more," continued Prince Vasili, seizing her hand, "that letter was written, though it was not sent, and the Emperor knew of it.
  • He will then be the legal heir to everything and you won't get anything.
  • "My dear Princess Catherine Semenovna," began Prince Vasili impatiently, "I came here not to wrangle with you, but to talk about your interests as with a kinswoman, a good, kind, true relation.
  • If you don't believe me, then believe an expert.
  • Yes, but you are not the only one.
  • "Do you or do you not know where that will is?" insisted Prince Vasili, his cheeks twitching more than ever.
  • You must remember, Catiche, that it was all done casually in a moment of anger, of illness, and was afterwards forgotten.
  • I value your friendship and wish you to have as good an opinion of me.
  • Tell me all you know about the will, and above all where it is.
  • You understand that my sole desire is conscientiously to carry out his wishes; that is my only reason for being here.
  • We've got to it at last--why did you not tell me about it sooner?
  • "Ah, my friend!" she said, touching his arm as she had done her son's when speaking to him that afternoon, "believe me I suffer no less than you do, but be a man!"
  • I have loved you like a son from the first.
  • "If you do not understand these sentiments," he seemed to be saying, "so much the worse for you!"
  • Go and take something, my poor Anna Mikhaylovna, or you will not hold out.
  • You know how fond the count is of her.
  • Dear princess, I beg and implore you, have some pity on him!
  • "Why don't you speak, cousin?" suddenly shrieked the princess so loud that those in the drawing room heard her and were startled.
  • Why do you remain silent when heaven knows who permits herself to interfere, making a scene on the very threshold of a dying man's room?
  • "Remember that you will answer for the consequences," said Prince Vasili severely.
  • You don't know what you are doing.
  • You don't know what you are doing.
  • "What are you doing!" she cried vehemently.
  • He is dying and you leave me alone with him!
  • I know you well enough to be sure that this will not turn your head, but it imposes duties on you, and you must be a man.
  • You know, Uncle promised me only the day before yesterday not to forget Boris.
  • I hope, my dear friend, you will carry out your father's wish?
  • "Wait a bit, here's a letter for you," said the old man suddenly, taking a letter addressed in a woman's hand from a bag hanging above the table, onto which he threw it.
  • "Read this if you like, Father," said the princess, blushing still more and holding out the letter.
  • I don't want to have you like our silly ladies.
  • I will confess to you, dear Mary, that in spite of his extreme youth his departure for the army was a great grief to me.
  • This young man, of whom I spoke to you last summer, is so noble-minded and full of that real youthfulness which one seldom finds nowadays among our old men of twenty and, particularly, he is so frank and has so much heart.
  • Someday I will tell you about our parting and all that was said then.
  • You are fortunate, for the latter are generally the stronger!
  • But you will understand that I have no desire for the post.
  • A propos of marriages: do you know that a while ago that universal auntie Anna Mikhaylovna told me, under the seal of strict secrecy, of a plan of marriage for you.
  • I don't know what you will think of it, but I consider it my duty to let you know of it.
  • Read the mystical book I am sending you; it has an enormous success here.
  • I embrace you as I love you.
  • So you still love me, my romantic Julie?
  • You complain of our separation.
  • Why do you suppose that I should look severely on your affection for that young man?
  • I cannot agree with you about Pierre, whom I knew as a child.
  • In regard to this project of marriage for me, I will tell you, dear sweet friend, that I look on marriage as a divine institution to which we must conform.
  • You should have seen the state of the mothers, wives, and children of the men who were going and should have heard the sobs.
  • Adieu, dear and kind friend; may our divine Saviour and His most Holy Mother keep you in their holy and all-powerful care!
  • Ah, you are sending off a letter, Princess?
  • "Ah, dear friend," replied Princess Mary, "I have asked you never to warn me of the humor my father is in.
  • You are Mademoiselle Bourienne, said the little princess, kissing her.
  • "I dreamed last night..."--"You were not expecting us?..."
  • Mary, you have got thinner?...
  • And you have grown stouter!...
  • "So you are really going to the war, Andrew?" she said sighing.
  • You at least must tackle him properly, or else if he goes on like this he'll soon have us, too, for his subjects!
  • "Yes, Father, I have come to you and brought my wife who is pregnant," said Prince Andrew, following every movement of his father's face with an eager and respectful look.
  • You know me: I am busy from morning till night and abstemious, so of course I am well.
  • Well, go on," he continued, returning to his hobby; "tell me how the Germans have taught you to fight Bonaparte by this new science you call 'strategy.'"
  • The prince, who generally kept very strictly to social distinctions and rarely admitted even important government officials to his table, had unexpectedly selected Michael Ivanovich (who always went into a corner to blow his nose on his checked handkerchief) to illustrate the theory that all men are equals, and had more than once impressed on his daughter that Michael Ivanovich was "not a whit worse than you or I."
  • "I'm glad, glad, to see you," he said, looking attentively into her eyes, and then quickly went to his place and sat down.
  • "You must walk, walk as much as possible, as much as possible," he said.
  • While you and I never thought much of him.
  • Michael Ivanovich did not at all know when "you and I" had said such things about Bonaparte, but understanding that he was wanted as a peg on which to hang the prince's favorite topic, he looked inquiringly at the young prince, wondering what would follow.
  • Who told you that?
  • When you get there you'll find out what those Hofs- kriegs-wurst-Raths are!
  • No, my dear boy," he continued, "you and your generals won't get on against Buonaparte; you'll have to call in the French, so that birds of a feather may fight together.
  • No, lad, either you fellows have all lost your wits, or I have outlived mine.
  • May God help you, but we'll see what will happen.
  • You may laugh as much as you like, but all the same Bonaparte is a great general!
  • You may laugh as much as you like, but all the same Bonaparte is a great general!
  • "You think I'm an old man and don't understand the present state of affairs?" concluded his father.
  • You are not angry with me for coming?
  • You have changed so, Andrusha, she added, as if to explain such a question.
  • What a treasure of a wife you have, said she, sitting down on the sofa, facing her brother.
  • "You live in the country and don't think the life terrible," he replied.
  • But think, Andrew: for a young society woman to be buried in the country during the best years of her life, all alone--for Papa is always busy, and I... well, you know what poor resources I have for entertaining a woman used to the best society.
  • You know I always was a savage, and now am even more so.
  • To be quite frank, Mary, I expect Father's character sometimes makes things trying for you, doesn't it?
  • "You are good in every way, Andrew, but you have a kind of intellectual pride," said the princess, following the train of her own thoughts rather than the trend of the conversation--"and that's a great sin.
  • "You are good in every way, Andrew, but you have a kind of intellectual pride," said the princess, following the train of her own thoughts rather than the trend of the conversation--"and that's a great sin.
  • I only wish you were all as happy as I am.
  • I will tell you the truth, Andrew... is Father's way of treating religious subjects.
  • No--promise that you will not refuse!
  • It will give you no trouble and is nothing unworthy of you, but it will comfort me.
  • Think what you please!
  • I know you are just like Father.
  • Think as you please, but do this for my sake!
  • Andrew, I bless you with this icon and you must promise me you will never take it off.
  • To please you... said Prince Andrew.
  • Thank you, my dear.
  • As I was saying to you, Andrew, be kind and generous as you always used to be.
  • I do not think I have complained of my wife to you, Masha, or blamed her.
  • Why do you say all this to me?
  • I have said nothing to you, but you have already been talked to.
  • I thought you were in your room, she said, for some reason blushing and dropping her eyes.
  • What do you thank me for?
  • If you have anything to say, say it.
  • Say what you want.
  • Don't be afraid; I won't tell anyone, but you know it yourself.
  • Give this letter to Michael Ilarionovich. * I have written that he should make use of you in proper places and not keep you long as an adjutant: a bad position!
  • Here are some jottings for you to read when I am gone.
  • You will find them useful.
  • "Remember this, Prince Andrew, if they kill you it will hurt me, your old father..." he paused unexpectedly, and then in a querulous voice suddenly shrieked: "but if I hear that you have not behaved like a son of Nicholas Bolkonski, I shall be ashamed!"
  • "You need not have said that to me, Father," said the son with a smile.
  • "I also wanted to ask you," continued Prince Andrew, "if I'm killed and if I have a son, do not let him be taken away from you--as I said yesterday... let him grow up with you....
  • You will soon be dressing your men in petticoats!
  • What have you been after?
  • The commander in chief is expected and you leave your place?
  • I'll teach you to dress the men in fancy coats for a parade....
  • Well, why don't you speak?
  • Whom have you got there dressed up as a Hungarian? said the commander with an austere gibe.
  • Your excellency, you gave him leave yourself, on the march.
  • That's just like you young men, said the regimental commander cooling down a little.
  • One says a word to you and you...
  • What?" he added with renewed irritation, "I beg you to dress your men decently."
  • "I request you to have the goodness to change your coat," he said as he turned away.
  • You told me to remind you of the officer Dolokhov, reduced to the ranks in this regiment.
  • You told me to remind you of the officer Dolokhov, reduced to the ranks in this regiment.
  • Have you a complaint to make?
  • The Emperor is gracious, and I shan't forget you if you deserve well.
  • "You won't bear me a grudge, Prokhor Ignatych?" said the regimental commander, overtaking the third company on its way to its quarters and riding up to Captain Timokhin who was walking in front.
  • I am the first to apologize, you know me!
  • In Poland, if you please, he nearly killed a Jew.
  • You know he has important connections...
  • Well, then, you just...
  • I thank you all!
  • No, friend, he is sharper-eyed than you are.
  • You were near him.
  • The Austrians, you see, are putting them down.
  • Give me a biscuit, you devil!
  • And did you give me tobacco yesterday?
  • Ah, well, never mind, here you are.
  • You just sit still and are drawn along.
  • "My dear fellow, how are you?" said he through the singing, making his horse keep pace with the company.
  • I am as you see.
  • "And how do you get on with the officers?" inquired Zherkov.
  • Why, have you too much money?
  • Come if you need anything.
  • And Kutuzov smiled in a way that seemed to say, You are quite at liberty not to believe me and I don't even care whether you do or not, but you have no grounds for telling me so.
  • And Kutuzov smiled in a way that seemed to say, You are quite at liberty not to believe me and I don't even care whether you do or not, but you have no grounds for telling me so.
  • "But you know the wise maxim your excellency, advising one to expect the worst," said the Austrian general, evidently wishing to have done with jests and to come to business.
  • "Why are you so glum?" asked Nesvitski noticing Prince Andrew's pale face and glittering eyes.
  • Don't you understand that either we are officers serving our Tsar and our country, rejoicing in the successes and grieving at the misfortunes of our common cause, or we are merely lackeys who care nothing for their master's business.
  • * "Forty thousand men massacred and the army of our allies destroyed, and you find that a cause for jesting!"
  • * (2) "It is all very well for that good-for-nothing fellow of whom you have made a friend, but not for you, not for you."
  • Will you have coffee?
  • As soon as you left, it began and went on.
  • "I saw you riding this morning..." he added.
  • I'll teach you what to do and show you what kind of rivet to use.
  • "Have you told them to bring the horse?" asked Telyanin, getting up and looking carelessly about him.
  • Have you got it, Denisov?
  • But where are you off to?
  • "You see, my fwiend," he said, "we sleep when we don't love.
  • You yourself told him to come.
  • Well, what are you standing there for, you sca'cwow?
  • "Please, Denisov, let me lend you some: I have some, you know," said Rostov, blushing.
  • Where have you put it, Wostov?
  • "Wait, haven't you dropped it?" said Rostov, picking up the pillows one at a time and shaking them.
  • No, I remember thinking that you kept it under your head like a treasure, said Rostov.
  • It must be where you put it.
  • You're always like that; you thwow a thing down anywhere and forget it.
  • "Now then, you devil's puppet, look alive and hunt for it!" shouted Denisov, suddenly, turning purple and rushing at the man with a threatening gesture.
  • If the purse isn't found I'll flog you, I'll flog you all.
  • "I must have that purse, I tell you," shouted Denisov, shaking his orderly by the shoulders and knocking him against the wall.
  • You are mad, I tell you.
  • "And I tell you, don't you dahe to do it!" shouted Denisov, rushing at the cadet to restrain him.
  • "Do you understand what you're saying?" he said in a trembling voice.
  • "Ah, may the devil take you and evewybody," were the last words Rostov heard.
  • Are you going to have lunch too?
  • "That money is Denisov's; you took it..." he whispered just above Telyanin's ear.
  • "If you need it, take the money," and he threw the purse to him and ran out of the inn.
  • "And I tell you, Rostov, that you must apologize to the colonel!" said a tall, grizzly-haired staff captain, with enormous mustaches and many wrinkles on his large features, to Rostov who was crimson with excitement.
  • "You just wait a moment, my dear fellow, and listen," interrupted the staff captain in his deep bass, calmly stroking his long mustache.
  • You tell the colonel in the presence of other officers that an officer has stolen...
  • No one thinks you a coward, but that's not the point.
  • "You speak to the colonel about this nasty business before other officers," continued the staff captain, "and Bogdanich" (the colonel was called Bogdanich) "shuts you up."
  • "You speak to the colonel about this nasty business before other officers," continued the staff captain, "and Bogdanich" (the colonel was called Bogdanich) "shuts you up."
  • Well, have it so, and you talked a lot of nonsense to him and must apologize.
  • "I did not expect this of you," said the staff captain seriously and severely.
  • Is that how you look at it?
  • And Bogdanich was a brick: he told you you were saying what was not true.
  • You landed yourself in it.
  • And now, when one wants to smooth the thing over, some conceit prevents your apologizing, and you wish to make the whole affair public.
  • You are offended at being put on duty a bit, but why not apologize to an old and honorable officer?
  • You're quick at taking offense, but you don't mind disgracing the whole regiment!
  • You may take offense or not but I always stick to mother truth.
  • No, gentlemen, no... you mustn't think...
  • Well, what else do you want?...
  • "I tell you," shouted Denisov, "he's a fine fellow."
  • No one shall hear a word from me," said Rostov in an imploring voice, "but I can't apologize, by God I can't, do what you will!
  • "Well, it's as you like," said the staff captain.
  • "What brings you here?" cried the officers turning to the newcomer.
  • But how did you come here?
  • You look as if you'd just come out of a hot bath.
  • Why are you not eating anything, gentlemen?
  • "Thank you very much, Prince," answered one of the officers, pleased to be talking to a staff officer of such importance.
  • "What a fine fellow you are, friend!" said the Cossack to a convoy soldier with a wagon, who was pressing onto the infantrymen who were crowded together close to his wheels and his horses.
  • You can't wait a moment!
  • Don't you see the general wants to pass?
  • Are there many more of you to come?
  • There, Fedotov, you should be quartered on them!
  • "Where are you going?" asked an infantry officer who was eating an apple, also half smiling as he looked at the handsome girl.
  • "Take it if you like," said the officer, giving the girl an apple.
  • Where are you shoving to?
  • Now, then, you there! get out of the way!
  • "Nesvitski, Nesvitski! you numskull!" came a hoarse voice from behind him.
  • Stop there, you devil with the cart!
  • I'll hack you with my saber! he shouted, actually drawing his saber from its scabbard and flourishing it.
  • "What a dandy you are today!" said Nesvitski, looking at Denisov's new cloak and saddlecloth.
  • "Don't kick up the dust, you infantry!" jested an hussar whose prancing horse had splashed mud over some foot soldiers.
  • I'd like to put you on a two days' march with a knapsack!
  • "Take a stick between your legs, that'll suit you for a horse!" the hussar shouted back.
  • But you are strong, healthy, cheerful, and excited, and are surrounded by other such excitedly animated and healthy men.
  • And why are you stopping here?
  • Don't you see the skirmishers are retreating?
  • "You spoke to me of inflammable material," said he, "but you said nothing about firing it."
  • "You spoke to me of inflammable material," said he, "but you said nothing about firing it."
  • You said the bridge would be burned, but who would it burn, I could not know by the holy spirit!
  • "How did you get here?" said he, turning to Zherkov.
  • But you are damp!
  • Let me wring you out!
  • "You were saying, Mr. Staff Officer..." continued the colonel in an offended tone.
  • "Colonel," interrupted the officer of the suite, "You must be quick or the enemy will bring up his guns to use grapeshot."
  • You should dismount, he said.
  • How you look at things!
  • You worked like wegular bwicks and it's nasty work!
  • But this sort of thing is the very devil, with them shooting at you like a target.
  • "Here's something for you to report," said Zherkov.
  • There you will find the adjutant on duty, said the official.
  • He will conduct you to the Minister of War.
  • You say the affair was decisive?
  • His Majesty will no doubt wish to see you, but not today.
  • You must have a rest.
  • However, I will let you know.
  • Thank you very much.
  • His Majesty will probably desire to see you, he added, bowing his head.
  • And I am sitting here ill, as you see.
  • You with all your forces fall on the unfortunate Mortier and his one division, and even then Mortier slips through your fingers!
  • Why didn't you capture one, just one, marshal for us?
  • We had expected, as I told you, to get at their rear by seven in the morning but had not reached it by five in the afternoon.
  • And why didn't you do it at seven in the morning?
  • That is true, but still why didn't you capture him?
  • "It is now my turn to ask you 'why?' mon cher," said Bolkonski.
  • Bring us nice news of a victory by the Archduke Karl or Ferdinand (one archduke's as good as another, as you know) and even if it is only over a fire brigade of Bonaparte's, that will be another story and we'll fire off some cannon!
  • You abandon Vienna, give up its defense--as much as to say: 'Heaven is with us, but heaven help you and your capital!'
  • You abandon Vienna, give up its defense--as much as to say: 'Heaven is with us, but heaven help you and your capital!'
  • The one general whom we all loved, Schmidt, you expose to a bullet, and then you congratulate us on the victory!
  • You see that your victory is not a matter for great rejoicing and that you can't be received as a savior.
  • You see that your victory is not a matter for great rejoicing and that you can't be received as a savior.
  • "But joking apart," said Prince Andrew, "do you really think the campaign is over?"
  • Can you fancy the figure he cut?...
  • Oh, you Don Juan!
  • You serpent! cried several voices.
  • "Oh, I must give you a treat," Bilibin whispered to Bolkonski.
  • Kuragin is exquisite when he discusses politics--you should see his gravity!
  • "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...
  • If we were in Vienna it would be easy, but here, in this wretched Moravian hole, it is more difficult, and I beg you all to help me.
  • You can undertake the theater, I society, and you, Hippolyte, of course the women.
  • You can undertake the theater, I society, and you, Hippolyte, of course the women.
  • We'll take you in hand.
  • "When speaking to the Emperor, try as far as you can to praise the way that provisions are supplied and the routes indicated," said Bilibin, accompanying him to the hall.
  • Well, talk as much as you can, anyway.
  • He has a passion for giving audiences, but he does not like talking himself and can't do it, as you will see.
  • But where do you come from not to know what every coachman in the town knows?
  • And you didn't see that everybody is packing up?
  • And off they go and take the bridge, cross it, and now with their whole army are on this side of the Danube, marching on us, you, and your lines of communication.
  • The sergeant, who was evidently wiser than his general, goes up to Auersperg and says: 'Prince, you are being deceived, here are the French!'
  • Murat, seeing that all is lost if the sergeant is allowed to speak, turns to Auersperg with feigned astonishment (he is a true Gascon) and says: 'I don't recognize the world-famous Austrian discipline, if you allow a subordinate to address you like that!'
  • Come, you must own that this affair of the Thabor Bridge is delightful!
  • "Where are you off to?" he said suddenly to Prince Andrew who had risen and was going toward his room.
  • But you meant to stay another two days?
  • Why are you going?
  • Why are you going?
  • I know you think it your duty to gallop back to the army now that it is in danger.
  • But as you are a philosopher, be a consistent one, look at the other side of the question and you will see that your duty, on the contrary, is to take care of yourself.
  • You and I will travel comfortably in my caleche.
  • Where and why are you going, when you might remain here?
  • You are faced by one of two things," and the skin over his left temple puckered, "either you will not reach your regiment before peace is concluded, or you will share defeat and disgrace with Kutuzov's whole army."
  • You are faced by one of two things," and the skin over his left temple puckered, "either you will not reach your regiment before peace is concluded, or you will share defeat and disgrace with Kutuzov's whole army."
  • "My dear fellow, you are a hero!" said Bilibin.
  • "I'll flatten you into a pancake!" shouted the angry officer to the soldier.
  • Don't you see it's a woman? said Prince Andrew riding up to the officer.
  • I'll teach you to push on!...
  • "Let them pass, I tell you!" repeated Prince Andrew, compressing his lips.
  • "And who are you?" cried the officer, turning on him with tipsy rage, "who are you?
  • Are you in command here?
  • Go back or I'll flatten you into a pancake, repeated he.
  • Do as you like.
  • You won't be able to find either your baggage or anything else now, Prince.
  • You must be ill to shiver like that, he added, noticing that Prince Andrew winced as at an electric shock.
  • "Second line... have you written it?" he continued dictating to the clerk.
  • "Well, have you finished?" said he to Kozlovski.
  • My blessing, and may Christ be with you in your great endeavor!
  • I cannot find words to express to you my displeasure.
  • You command only my advance guard, and have no right to arrange an armistice without my order.
  • You are causing me to lose the fruits of a campaign.
  • You are in a position to seize its baggage and artillery.
  • The Austrians let themselves be tricked at the crossing of the Vienna bridge, you are letting yourself be tricked by an aide-de-camp of the Emperor.
  • Why didn't you mention it, Prince?
  • I would have offered you something.
  • You know it won't do to leave your posts like this.
  • 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.
  • "Well, aren't you ashamed of yourself, Captain Tushin?" he continued.
  • One would think that as an artillery officer you would set a good example, yet here you are without your boots!
  • "Kindly return to your posts, gentlemen, all of you, all!" he added in a tone of command.
  • You can see everything from there; let's go there, Prince.
  • "Thank you very much, I will go on alone," said Prince Andrew, wishing to rid himself of this staff officer's company, "please don't trouble yourself further."
  • "We have orders to drive you off here, and we shall drive you off," said Dolokhov.
  • "Only take care you and your Cossacks are not all captured!" said the French grenadier.
  • "We'll make you dance as we did under Suvorov...," * said Dolokhov.
  • Now, Sidorov, you have a try!
  • Another, a younger voice, interrupted him: "Afraid or not, you can't escape it anyhow."
  • Oh, you clever people, said a third manly voice interrupting them both.
  • Of course you artillery men are very wise, because you can take everything along with you--vodka and snacks.
  • He asked, "Whose company?" but he really meant, "Are you frightened here?" and the artilleryman understood him.
  • "There, you see!" and he drew attention to the bullets whistling, singing, and hissing continually around them.
  • I beg of you, I beg of you," he repeated, "to occupy the position and prepare for an attack."
  • If you vere in the cavalry...
  • Vill you be so goot to come to ze front and see dat zis position iss no goot?
  • You forget yourself, Colonel.
  • I beg you will remember this, your excellency!
  • "What do you want, your honor?" asked an artilleryman, standing close by, who heard him muttering.
  • "What, are you wounded, my lad?" said Tushin, approaching the gun on which Rostov sat.
  • You couldn't see a thing.
  • "You don't mind your honor?" he asked Tushin.
  • You picked it up?...
  • Good luck to you, fellow countrymen.
  • Gentlemen, I thank you all; all arms have behaved heroically: infantry, cavalry, and artillery.
  • "I think I sent you?" he added, turning to the staff officer on duty.
  • "Oh, but you were there?" said Prince Bagration, addressing Prince Andrew.
  • "I had not the pleasure of seeing you," said Prince Andrew, coldly and abruptly.
  • You might have taken some from the covering troops.
  • Prince Andrew broke the silence with his abrupt voice, you were pleased to send me to Captain Tushin's battery.
  • "Thank you; you saved me, my dear fellow!" said Tushin.
  • He was always hearing such words as: "With your remarkable kindness," or, "With your excellent heart," "You are yourself so honorable Count," or, "Were he as clever as you," and so on, till he began sincerely to believe in his own exceptional kindness and extraordinary intelligence, the more so as in the depth of his heart it had always seemed to him that he really was very kind and intelligent.

  • We start tomorrow and I'm giving you a place in my carriage.
  • No one has ever complained yet of being too much loved; and besides, you are free, you could throw it up tomorrow.
  • But you will see everything for yourself when you get to Petersburg.
  • It is high time for you to get away from these terrible recollections.
  • Wait a bit, I have something in view for you this evening.
  • Don't you think so?
  • So you have never noticed before how beautiful I am?
  • You had not noticed that I am a woman?
  • Yes, I am a woman who may belong to anyone--to you too, said her glance.
  • "Well, I will leave you in your little corner," came Anna Pavlovna's voice, "I see you are all right there."
  • A little later when he went up to the large circle, Anna Pavlovna said to him: "I hear you are refitting your Petersburg house?"
  • And you are still so young.
  • "If you marry it will be a different thing," she continued, uniting them both in one glance.
  • The old princess sighed sadly as she offered some wine to the old lady next to her and glanced angrily at her daughter, and her sigh seemed to say: "Yes, there's nothing left for you and me but to sip sweet wine, my dear, now that the time has come for these young ones to be thus boldly, provocatively happy."
  • How absent-minded you are, my dear fellow.
  • "Well, what of it, if you all know it?" thought Pierre.
  • When did you get the letter?
  • "I think I may congratulate you," whispered Anna Pavlovna to the old princess, kissing her soundly.
  • "This happiness is not for you," some inner voice whispered to him.
  • I loved your father... and she will make you a good wife...
  • "Do you hear how he's walking?" said Tikhon, drawing the architect's attention to the sound of the prince's footsteps.
  • "You thought!" shouted the prince, his words coming more and more rapidly and indistinctly.
  • I'll teach you to think! and lifting his stick he swung it and would have hit Alpatych, the overseer, had not the latter instinctively avoided the blow.
  • Are you unwell today?
  • Do you want anything?
  • Prince Vasili's two valets were busy dressing him, and he looked round with much animation and cheerfully nodded to his son as the latter entered, as if to say: "Yes, that's how I want you to look."
  • Remember, for you everything depends on this.
  • "You know they've come, Marie?" said the little princess, waddling in, and sinking heavily into an armchair.
  • Are you going to remain as you are, dear princess? she began.
  • They'll be announcing that the gentlemen are in the drawing room and we shall have to go down, and you have not smartened yourself up at all!
  • You have a maroon dress, have it fetched.
  • You know the fate of your whole life may be at stake.
  • I prefer you in your little gray everyday dress.
  • "You will change it, won't you?" said Lise.
  • "You will change it, won't you?" said Lise.
  • It was as if he said to them: I know you, I know you, but why should I bother about you?
  • It's not as at Annette's * receptions where you always ran away; you remember cette chere Annette!
  • "Why is it you were never at Annette's?" the little princess asked Anatole.
  • "And didn't Hippolyte tell you?" asked Prince Vasili, turning to his son and seizing the little princess' arm as if she would have run away and he had just managed to catch her, "didn't he tell you how he himself was pining for the dear princess, and how she showed him the door?
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • "You must do as you please," said Prince Bolkonski, bowing to his daughter-in-law, "but she need not make a fool of herself, she's plain enough as it is."
  • "You must do as you please," said Prince Bolkonski, bowing to his daughter-in-law, "but she need not make a fool of herself, she's plain enough as it is."
  • "Now you, young prince, what's your name?" said Prince Bolkonski, turning to Anatole, "come here, let us talk and get acquainted."
  • Now tell me, my dear boy, are you serving in the Horse Guards? asked the old man, scrutinizing Anatole closely and intently.
  • So, my dear boy, you wish to serve the Tsar and the country?
  • Well, are you off to the front?
  • "You may go," he said to Anatole.
  • "And so you've had him educated abroad, Prince Vasili, haven't you?" said the old prince to Prince Vasili.
  • "Well, do you think I shall prevent her, that I can't part from her?" said the old prince angrily.
  • Only let me tell you, I want to know my son-in-law better.
  • You know my principles--everything aboveboard?
  • You know, you see right through people.
  • You know, you see right through people.
  • When your father writes to tell me that you are behaving well I will give you my hand to kiss.
  • "I told you it was all lumps and holes!" the little princess repeated.
  • "I have had a proposition made me concerning you," he said with an unnatural smile.
  • "I expect you have guessed that Prince Vasili has not come and brought his pupil with him" (for some reason Prince Bolkonski referred to Anatole as a "pupil") "for the sake of my beautiful eyes.
  • Last night a proposition was made me on your account and, as you know my principles, I refer it to you.
  • "How am I to understand you, mon pere?" said the princess, growing pale and then blushing.
  • Prince Vasili finds you to his taste as a daughter-in-law and makes a proposal to you on his pupil's behalf.
  • "I do not know what you think, Father," whispered the princess.
  • He will take you with your dowry and take Mademoiselle Bourienne into the bargain.
  • I give you freedom.
  • He receives his orders and will marry you or anybody; but you are free to choose....
  • I know you will pray over it.
  • Well, pray if you like, but you had better think it over.
  • I love you more than ever," said Princess Mary, "and I will try to do all I can for your happiness."
  • You who are so pure can never understand being so carried away by passion.
  • Do you wish or not to be Prince Anatole Kuragin's wife?
  • My desire is never to leave you, Father, never to separate my life from yours.
  • My dear, I must tell you that this is a moment I shall never, never forget.
  • But, my dear, will you not give us a little hope of touching this heart, so kind and generous?
  • I thank you for the honor, but I shall never be your son's wife.
  • "Very, very glad to have seen you," repeated he, embracing Prince Vasili.
  • No, dearest, sweet one, honey, I won't give up--I know you know something.
  • "You are a little slyboots," she said.
  • But for God's sake, be careful, you know how it may affect your mamma.
  • It's true that all you women are crybabies, remarked Petya, pacing the room with large, resolute strides.
  • You are all blubberers and understand nothing.
  • "You haven't read the letter?" asked Sonya.
  • Hold your tongue, Petya, what a goose you are!
  • Do you remember him?
  • "No, Sonya, but do you remember so that you remember him perfectly, remember everything?" said Natasha, with an expressive gesture, evidently wishing to give her words a very definite meaning.
  • You don't remember Boris? asked Sonya in surprise.
  • "Shall you write to him?" she asked.
  • And you won't feel ashamed to write to him?
  • Why should you be ashamed?
  • "Not more stupid than you, madam," said the nine-year-old Petya, with the air of an old brigadier.
  • "Why are you crying, Mamma?" asked Vera.
  • "Well, how are you going to get out of that?" he remarked.
  • Oh, you petisenfans, allay cushay dormir! he exclaimed, imitating his Russian nurse's French, at which he and Boris used to laugh long ago.
  • Dear me, how you have changed!
  • Oh, you damned dandies!
  • Why do you shout so?
  • "I did not expect you today," he added.
  • I only sent you the note yesterday by Bolkonski--an adjutant of Kutuzov's, who's a friend of mine.
  • I did not think he would get it to you so quickly....
  • "As you see," he said.
  • You know, of course, that His Imperial Highness rode with our regiment all the time, so that we had every comfort and every advantage.
  • "Oh, you Guards!" said Rostov.
  • "If you really want it," said he.
  • "Yes, and I have some money and a letter to give you," he added.
  • "Well, they've sent you a tidy sum," said Berg, eying the heavy purse that sank into the sofa.
  • I can tell you for myself...
  • Do go somewhere, anywhere... to the devil!" he exclaimed, and immediately seizing him by the shoulder and looking amiably into his face, evidently wishing to soften the rudeness of his words, he added, "Don't be hurt, my dear fellow; you know I speak from my heart as to an old acquaintance."
  • "Go across to our hosts: they invited you," added Boris.
  • Well, have you sent Gabriel for some wine?
  • "Why have you thrown that away?" asked Boris.
  • "You are still the same dreamer, I see," remarked Boris, shaking his head.
  • Come, how are you? asked Rostov.
  • Well, as you see.
  • Would you believe it, Count, I was not at all alarmed, because I knew I was right.
  • 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.
  • 'Hey, are you dumb?' he shouted.
  • And what do you think, Count?
  • In the middle of his story, just as he was saying: "You cannot imagine what a strange frenzy one experiences during an attack," Prince Andrew, whom Boris was expecting, entered the room.
  • "Of whom you imagine me to be one?" said Prince Andrew, with a quiet and particularly amiable smile.
  • Well then, on Friday after the review I shall expect you, Drubetskoy.
  • The Tsar addressed the officers also: "I thank you all, gentlemen, I thank you with my whole heart."
  • You have earned the St. George's standards and will be worthy of them.
  • When he entered, Prince Andrew, his eyes drooping contemptuously (with that peculiar expression of polite weariness which plainly says, "If it were not my duty I would not talk to you for a moment"), was listening to an old Russian general with decorations, who stood very erect, almost on tiptoe, with a soldier's obsequious expression on his purple face, reporting something.
  • I am very sorry you did not find me in yesterday.
  • Well, my dear fellow, so you still want to be an adjutant?
  • He would say a lot of pleasant things, ask you to dinner" ("That would not be bad as regards the unwritten code," thought Boris), "but nothing more would come of it.
  • But this is what we'll do: I have a good friend, an adjutant general and an excellent fellow, Prince Dolgorukov; and though you may not know it, the fact is that now Kutuzov with his staff and all of us count for nothing.
  • We shall see whether he cannot attach you to himself or find a place for you somewhere nearer the sun.
  • And do you know, my dear fellow, it seems to me that Bonaparte has decidedly lost bearings, you know that a letter was received from him today for the Emperor.
  • I tell you he is in our hands, that's certain!
  • You know Bilibin--he's a very clever fellow.
  • My brother knows him, he's dined with him--the present Emperor--more than once in Paris, and tells me he never met a more cunning or subtle diplomatist--you know, a combination of French adroitness and Italian play-acting!
  • Do you know the tale about him and Count Markov?
  • You know the story of the handkerchief?
  • But I have come to you, Prince, as a petitioner on behalf of this young man.
  • You know I should be very glad to do all in my power both for you and for this dear young man.
  • You know I should be very glad to do all in my power both for you and for this dear young man.
  • But you see... another time!
  • If you like, your honor!
  • Can't you do it more gently? said the Emperor apparently suffering more than the dying soldier, and he rode away.
  • No, you don't understand!
  • "Yes, you have seen him?" said Prince Andrew.
  • "I wish you good luck and success, gentlemen!" he added and went out after shaking hands with Dolgorukov and Bilibin.
  • What do you think he replied?
  • Yes, yes, if you please!
  • But the Austrian general, continuing to read, frowned angrily and jerked his elbows, as if to say: "You can tell me your views later, but now be so good as to look at the map and listen."
  • He listened to what Langeron said, as if remarking, "So you are still at that silly business!" quickly closed his eye again, and let his head sink still lower.
  • "So you think he is powerless?" said Langeron.
  • You have heard them, and we shall all do our duty.
  • If before that you are not ten times wounded, killed, or betrayed, well... what then?...
  • What do you make of it? said Rostov to the hussar beside him.
  • Why, don't you hear it?
  • Oh, very well, you may stay in attendance on me.
  • The Russian army is advancing against you to avenge the Austrian army of Ulm.
  • They are the same battalions you broke at Hollabrunn and have pursued ever since to this place.
  • "What division are you?" shouted an adjutant, riding up.
  • Then why are you here?
  • You should have gone on long ago, now you won't get there till evening.
  • You should have gone on long ago, now you won't get there till evening.
  • Who told you that?...
  • Kindly do as you are ordered.
  • "You know, Michael Ilarionovich, we are not on the Empress' Field where a parade does not begin till all the troops are assembled," said the Tsar with another glance at the Emperor Francis, as if inviting him if not to join in at least to listen to what he was saying.
  • "However, if you command it, Your Majesty," said Kutuzov, lifting his head and again assuming his former tone of a dull, unreasoning, but submissive general.
  • "God be with you, general!" said the Emperor.
  • "You are wounded?" he asked, hardly able to master the trembling of his lower jaw.
  • Why are you hindering us?
  • "You can give the message to His Majesty," said Dolgorukov, hurriedly interrupting Bagration.
  • "Have you?" he said.
  • "Can you imagine it?" and he began describing how the Guards, having taken up their position and seeing troops before them, thought they were Austrians, and all at once discovered from the cannon balls discharged by those troops that they were themselves in the front line and had unexpectedly to go into action.
  • "Where are you off to?" asked Boris.
  • "Who is it you want?" he asked.
  • "Take this road, your honor, that way you will be killed at once!" a soldier shouted to him.
  • They'd kill you there!
  • "Oh, what are you talking about?" said another.
  • "Oh, you fool!" said the old man, spitting angrily.
  • The nearest soldiers shrank back, the gun driver stopped his horse, but from behind still came the shouts: Onto the ice, why do you stop?
  • "You are the commander of the Emperor Alexander's regiment of Horse Guards?" asked Napoleon.
  • Young man, you will go far!
  • "Well, and you, young man," said he.
  • How do you feel, mon brave?
  • Can't you hurry up?
  • What do you think?
  • You shall have three rubles for vodka--get on!
  • Let me have a look at you, your excellency.
  • You are most welcome!
  • "No, but listen," she said, "now you are quite a man, aren't you?
  • I want to know what you men are like.
  • Are you the same as we?
  • How are you going to speak to her-- thou or you?
  • No, call her you, please!
  • I'll tell you all about it some other time.
  • No, I'll tell you now.
  • You know Sonya's my dearest friend.
  • Well, she loves me and you like that.
  • Why, you remember before you went away?...
  • Well, she says you are to forget all that....
  • It makes it as if you were marrying her because you must, and that wouldn't do at all.
  • "Well, and are you still true to Boris?" he continued.
  • Then what are you up to now?
  • Have you seen Duport?
  • Well then, you won't understand.
  • "No, but don't you think it's nice?" she kept repeating.
  • And so you no longer wish to marry Boris?
  • You call him Vaska?
  • He kissed her hand and addressed her not as thou but as you--Sonya.
  • "How strange it is," said Vera, selecting a moment when all were silent, "that Sonya and Nicholas now say you to one another and meet like strangers."
  • Now, if you would only help a bit!
  • You military men like that sort of thing.
  • "Really, Papa, I believe Prince Bagration worried himself less before the battle of Schon Grabern than you do now," said his son with a smile.
  • Yes, you talk, but try it yourself!
  • "That's it, that's it!" exclaimed the count, and gaily seizing his son by both hands, he cried, "Now I've got you, so take the sleigh and pair at once, and go to Bezukhov's, and tell him 'Count Ilya has sent you to ask for strawberries and fresh pineapples.'
  • All Moscow repeated Prince Dolgorukov's saying: "If you go on modeling and modeling you must get smeared with clay," suggesting consolation for our defeat by the memory of former victories; and the words of Rostopchin, that French soldiers have to be incited to battle by highfalutin words, and Germans by logical arguments to show them that it is more dangerous to run away than to advance, but that Russian soldiers only need to be restrained and held back!
  • "What are you about?" shouted Rostov, looking at him in an ecstasy of exasperation.
  • Don't you hear it's His Majesty the Emperor's health?
  • "Why, I didn't recognize you!" he said.
  • "Why don't you renew the acquaintance?" said Dolokhov to Rostov.
  • "How dare you take it?" he shouted.
  • What are you about? whispered their frightened voices.
  • "You shan't have it!" he said distinctly.
  • I challenge you! he ejaculated, and, pushing back his chair, he rose from the table.
  • And do you feel quite calm?
  • Well, you see, I'll tell you the whole secret of dueling in two words.
  • If you are going to fight a duel, and you make a will and write affectionate letters to your parents, and if you think you may be killed, you are a fool and are lost for certain.
  • 'Everyone fears a bear,' he says, 'but when you see one your fear's all gone, and your only thought is not to let him get away!'
  • "I should not be doing my duty, Count," he said in timid tones, "and should not justify your confidence and the honor you have done me in choosing me for your second, if at this grave, this very grave, moment I did not tell you the whole truth.
  • You were not right, not quite in the right, you were impetuous...
  • You were not right, not quite in the right, you were impetuous...
  • You know, Count, it is much more honorable to admit one's mistake than to let matters become irreparable.
  • How do you feel? he asked.
  • How did I come to do it?"--"Because you married her," answered an inner voice.
  • Just you try it on....
  • * "You clear out of this."
  • But if you are alive--live: tomorrow you'll die as I might have died an hour ago.
  • If you won't answer, I'll tell you...
  • You believe everything you're told.
  • Helene laughed, "that Dolokhov was my lover," she said in French with her coarse plainness of speech, uttering the word amant as casually as any other word, "and you believed it!
  • Well, what have you proved?
  • 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.
  • Helene raised her voice and became more and more excited, "A man who's a better man than you in every way..."
  • And how could you believe he was my lover?
  • If you were cleverer and more agreeable, I should prefer yours.
  • I beg you, muttered Pierre hoarsely.
  • Very well, but only if you give me a fortune, said Helene.
  • "I'll kill you!" he shouted, and seizing the marble top of a table with a strength he had never before felt, he made a step toward her brandishing the slab.
  • Do you feel it?
  • No, you know it's too soon for news.
  • What is the matter with you, my darling?
  • Oh, you are very pale! said Princess Mary in alarm, running with her soft, ponderous steps up to her sister-in-law.
  • You young ladies should not know anything about it.
  • "I've come to sit with you a bit, Masha," said the nurse, "and here I've brought the prince's wedding candles to light before his saint, my angel," she said with a sigh.
  • "You did not get my letter?" he asked, and not waiting for a reply-- which he would not have received, for the princess was unable to speak-- he turned back, rapidly mounted the stairs again with the doctor who had entered the hall after him (they had met at the last post station), and again embraced his sister.
  • I love you all and have done no harm to anyone; why must I suffer so?
  • "I expected help from you and I get none, none from you either!" said her eyes.
  • You can't come in!
  • You can't! said a terrified voice from within.
  • "I love you all, and have done no harm to anyone; and what have you done to me?"--said her charming, pathetic, dead face.
  • "Ah, what have you done to me?" it still seemed to say, and Prince Andrew felt that something gave way in his soul and that he was guilty of a sin he could neither remedy nor forget.
  • The old man too came up and kissed the waxen little hands that lay quietly crossed one on the other on her breast, and to him, too, her face seemed to say: "Ah, what have you done to me, and why?"
  • I know you understand Fedya, my dear count; that, believe me, is why I am so fond of you.
  • I have an adored, a priceless mother, and two or three friends--you among them--and as for the rest I only care about them in so far as they are harmful or useful.
  • But you don't understand it.
  • There now, I like your Denisov though he is a rake and all that, still I like him; so you see I do understand.
  • And do you know he has fallen in love with Sonya?
  • Nicholas, will you come to Iogel's?
  • He asked you, and Vasili Dmitrich * is also going.
  • "And I was looking for you," said Natasha running out to him.
  • "I told you, but you would not believe it," she said triumphantly.
  • Do you know, Nicholas--don't be angry--but I know you will not marry her.
  • I know, heaven knows how, but I know for certain that you won't marry her.
  • "Now you don't know that at all!" said Nicholas.
  • If you refuse him on my account, I must tell you the whole truth.
  • I love you, and I think I love you more than anyone else....
  • I love you as a brother and always shall, and I want nothing more.
  • You are an angel: I am not worthy of you, but I am afraid of misleading you.
  • You are an angel: I am not worthy of you, but I am afraid of misleading you.
  • Who are you talking about?
  • "My dear count, you were one of my best pupils--you must dance," said little Iogel coming up to Nicholas.
  • Don't you wecollect what bad use I made of your lessons?
  • You were only inattentive, but you had talent--oh yes, you had talent!
  • You were only inattentive, but you had talent--oh yes, you had talent!
  • "I'll sing for you a whole evening," said Natasha.
  • "You may punt," he said.
  • Or are you afraid to play with me?
  • Do you remember we had a talk about cards...
  • "Why don't you play?" he asked.
  • Yes, you might, but I am afraid of getting the accounts mixed.
  • So I ask you to put the money on your cards, replied Dolokhov.
  • Or are you afraid of me? he asked again.
  • Well, won't you go on?
  • I only want to see whether you will let me win this ten, or beat it.
  • "You owe forty-three thousand, Count," said Dolokhov, and stretching himself he rose from the table.
  • "I say, Rostov," said Dolokhov clearly, smiling and looking Nicholas straight in the eyes, "you know the saying, 'Lucky in love, unlucky at cards.'
  • Your cousin is in love with you, I know.
  • Nicholas, have you come?
  • At that moment she was oblivious of her surroundings, and from her smiling lips flowed sounds which anyone may produce at the same intervals and hold for the same time, but which leave you cold a thousand times and the thousand and first time thrill you and make you weep.
  • I told you it would not be enough.
  • I am telling you the fact, said Natasha indignantly.
  • I come to ask you what to do, and you call it 'nonsense!'
  • If it is true that Monsieur Denisov has made you a proposal, tell him he is a fool, that's all!
  • Well then, what do you want?
  • Well, if you are in love, marry him! said the countess, with a laugh of annoyance.
  • Mamma, are you cross?
  • Do you want me to go and tell him? said the countess smiling.
  • It's all very well for you, said Natasha, with a responsive smile.
  • You should have seen how he said it!
  • Well, all the same, you must refuse him.
  • It's high time for you to be married, answered the countess sharply and sarcastically.
  • And there's nothing for you to say.
  • No, but you are so nice... but it won't do...not that... but as a friend, I shall always love you.
  • "Vasili Dmitrich, I thank you for the honor," she said, with an embarrassed voice, though it sounded severe to Denisov--"but my daughter is so young, and I thought that, as my son's friend, you would have addressed yourself first to me.
  • In that case you would not have obliged me to give this refusal.
  • Will you have the portmanteaus brought in?
  • You are young and I am old.
  • I should like to help you as far as lies in my power.
  • Where are you traveling from?
  • "But if for reason you don't feel inclined to talk to me," said the old man, "say so, my dear sir."
  • "Allow me to ask," he said, "are you a Mason?"
  • "I know your outlook," said the Mason, "and the view of life you mention, and which you think is the result of your own mental efforts, is the one held by the majority of people, and is the invariable fruit of pride, indolence, and ignorance.
  • "Just as I may suppose you to be deluded," said Pierre, with a faint smile.
  • "I ought to tell you that I do not believe... do not believe in God," said Pierre, regretfully and with an effort, feeling it essential to speak the whole truth.
  • You cannot know Him.
  • You do not know Him and that is why you are unhappy.
  • You do not know Him and that is why you are unhappy.
  • "If He were not," he said quietly, "you and I would not be speaking of Him, my dear sir.
  • "I don't understand," he said, "how it is that the mind of man cannot attain the knowledge of which you speak."
  • You are young, you are rich, you are clever, you are well educated.
  • You are young, you are rich, you are clever, you are well educated.
  • And what have you done with all these good gifts?
  • Are you content with yourself and with your life?
  • How have you spent it?
  • You have become the possessor of wealth.
  • How have you used it?
  • What have you done for your neighbor?
  • Have you ever thought of your tens of thousands of slaves?
  • Have you helped them physically and morally?
  • You have profited by their toil to lead a profligate life.
  • That is what you have done.
  • Have you chosen a post in which you might be of service to your neighbor?
  • You have spent your life in idleness.
  • A man offended you and you shot him, and you say you do not know God and hate your life.
  • Will you not rest here?
  • Where are you going to now, my dear sir?
  • I agree with all you have said.
  • With my whole soul I wish to be what you would have me be, but I have never had help from anyone....
  • You are going to Petersburg.
  • Allow me to give you a piece of advice.
  • "I have come to you with a message and an offer, Count," he said without sitting down.
  • A person of very high standing in our Brotherhood has made application for you to be received into our Order before the usual term and has proposed to me to be your sponsor.
  • Do you wish to enter the Brotherhood of Freemasons under my sponsorship?
  • "One more question, Count," he said, "which I beg you to answer in all sincerity--not as a future Mason but as an honest man: have you renounced your former convictions--do you believe in God?"
  • "Whatever happens to you," he said, "you must bear it all manfully if you have firmly resolved to join our Brotherhood."
  • "When you hear a knock at the door, you will uncover your eyes," added Willarski.
  • "I wish you courage and success," and, pressing Pierre's hand, he went out.
  • "For what have you come hither?" asked the newcomer, turning in Pierre's direction at a slight rustle made by the latter.
  • Why have you, who do not believe in the truth of the light and who have not seen the light, come here?
  • What do you seek from us?
  • "Very well," said Smolyaninov, and went on at once: "Have you any idea of the means by which our holy Order will help you to reach your aim?" said he quietly and quickly.
  • Have you sought for means of attaining your aim in religion?
  • "Now I must disclose to you the chief aim of our Order," he said, "and if this aim coincides with yours, you may enter our Brotherhood with profit.
  • Think this over and I will come to you again.
  • "I must also inform you," said the Rhetor, "that our Order delivers its teaching not in words only but also by other means, which may perhaps have a stronger effect on the sincere seeker after wisdom and virtue than mere words.
  • This chamber with what you see therein should already have suggested to your heart, if it is sincere, more than words could do.
  • You will perhaps also see in your further initiation a like method of enlightenment.
  • "If you are resolved, I must begin your initiation," said the Rhetor coming closer to Pierre.
  • What you have with you: watch, money, rings....
  • "And now, in token of candor, I ask you to reveal to me your chief passion," said the latter.
  • "That passion which more than all others caused you to waver on the path of virtue," said the Mason.
  • The second pair of man's gloves he was to wear at the meetings, and finally of the third, a pair of women's gloves, he said: Dear brother, these woman's gloves are intended for you too.
  • Give them to the woman whom you shall honor most of all.
  • This gift will be a pledge of your purity of heart to her whom you select to be your worthy helpmeet in Masonry.
  • My dear fellow, what have you been up to in Moscow?
  • Why have you quarreled with Helene, mon cher?
  • You are under a delusion, said Prince Vasili, as he entered.
  • I know all about it, and I can tell you positively that Helene is as innocent before you as Christ was before the Jews.
  • And why didn't you simply come straight to me as to a friend?
  • You behaved as becomes a man who values his honor, perhaps too hastily, but we won't go into that.
  • But consider the position in which you are placing her and me in the eyes of society, and even of the court, he added, lowering his voice.
  • She is living in Moscow and you are here.
  • I expect you feel it so yourself.
  • Let us write her a letter at once, and she'll come here and all will be explained, or else, my dear boy, let me tell you it's quite likely you'll have to suffer for it.
  • Prince, I did not ask you here.
  • I said so even at the time when everybody was in raptures about him, when he had just returned from abroad, and when, if you remember, he posed as a sort of Marat at one of my soirees.
  • "You absolutely must come and see me," she said in a tone that implied that, for certain considerations he could not know of, this was absolutely necessary.
  • "You know her husband, of course?" said Anna Pavlovna, closing her eyes and indicating Helene with a sorrowful gesture.
  • But what was still stranger, though of this Prince Andrew said nothing to his sister, was that in the expression the sculptor had happened to give the angel's face, Prince Andrew read the same mild reproach he had read on the face of his dead wife: "Ah, why have you done this to me?"
  • "If you please, your excellency, Petrusha has brought some papers," said one of the nursemaids to Prince Andrew who was sitting on a child's little chair while, frowning and with trembling hands, he poured drops from a medicine bottle into a wineglass half full of water.
  • "Oh, leave off, you always talk nonsense and keep putting things off-- and this is what comes of it!" said Prince Andrew in an exasperated whisper, evidently meaning to wound his sister.
  • As you please... really...
  • I think so... but as you please, said Princess Mary, evidently intimidated and confused that her opinion had prevailed.
  • I beg you--give it him!
  • Mind you gallop off to Korchevo without delay and carry out instructions!
  • "Since the day of our brilliant success at Austerlitz," wrote Bilibin, "as you know, my dear prince, I never leave headquarters.
  • 'The enemy of the human race,' as you know, attacks the Prussians.
  • Get along with you!'
  • We civilians, as you know, have a very bad way of deciding whether a battle was won or lost.
  • I was coming to tell you so.
  • "Well, I did not expect you, I am very glad," said Prince Andrew.
  • I can't tell you how much I have lived through since then.
  • Well, you see, I'm building.
  • I will introduce you to her.
  • But of course you know her already, he said, evidently trying to entertain a visitor with whom he now found nothing in common.
  • And would you now like to look round my place?
  • Pierre blushed, as he always did when it was mentioned, and said hurriedly: I will tell you some time how it all happened.
  • But you know it is all over, and forever.
  • But you know how it all ended, don't you?
  • You heard of the duel?
  • And so you had to go through that too!
  • "And who has told you what is bad for another man?" he asked.
  • No, I shall not agree with you, and you do not really believe what you are saying.
  • "When you see my sister, Princess Mary, you'll get on with her," he said.
  • "Perhaps you are right for yourself," he added after a short pause, "but everyone lives in his own way.
  • You lived for yourself and say you nearly ruined your life and only found happiness when you began living for others.
  • You lived for yourself and say you nearly ruined your life and only found happiness when you began living for others.
  • "But what do you mean by living only for yourself?" asked Pierre, growing excited.
  • The others, one's neighbors, le prochain, as you and Princess Mary call it, are the chief source of all error and evil.
  • Le prochain--your Kiev peasants to whom you want to do good.
  • "You are joking," replied Pierre, growing more and more excited.
  • "Yes, if you put it like that it's quite a different matter," said Prince Andrew.
  • I build a house and lay out a garden, and you build hospitals.
  • Well, you want an argument," he added, "come on then."
  • "Come, let's argue then," said Prince Andrew, "You talk of schools," he went on, crooking a finger, "education and so forth; that is, you want to raise him" (pointing to a peasant who passed by them taking off his cap) "from his animal condition and awaken in him spiritual needs, while it seems to me that animal happiness is the only happiness possible, and that is just what you want to deprive him of.

  • I envy him, but you want to make him what I am, without giving him my means.
  • But as I see it, physical labor is as essential to him, as much a condition of his existence, as mental activity is to you or me.
  • You can't help thinking.
  • The third thing--what else was it you talked about? and Prince Andrew crooked a third finger.
  • He has a fit, he is dying, and you come and bleed him and patch him up.
  • It would be different if you grudged losing a laborer--that's how I regard him--but you want to cure him from love of him.
  • Why aren't you serving in the army?
  • No, thank you very much!
  • Then you are serving?
  • And why do you serve?
  • Well, there you see!
  • "Yes, but it is not as you imagine," Prince Andrew continued.
  • So that's what I'm sorry for--human dignity, peace of mind, purity, and not the serfs' backs and foreheads, which, beat and shave as you may, always remain the same backs and foreheads.
  • I shall never agree with you, said Pierre.
  • No, but why do you think so?
  • Pierre suddenly began, lowering his head and looking like a bull about to charge, why do you think so?
  • You should not think so.
  • I myself thought like that, and do you know what saved me?
  • Well, what do you think about it?
  • Why are you silent?
  • You say: join our brotherhood and we will show you the aim of life, the destiny of man, and the laws which govern the world.
  • You say: join our brotherhood and we will show you the aim of life, the destiny of man, and the laws which govern the world.
  • How is it you know everything?
  • You see a reign of goodness and truth on earth, but I don't see it.
  • "Do you believe in a future life?" he asked.
  • You say you can't see a reign of goodness and truth on earth.
  • You say you can't see a reign of goodness and truth on earth.
  • You know that there is a there and there is a Someone?
  • It will serve her right, she will be confused, but you will see her 'God's folk.'
  • "Andrew, why didn't you warn me?" said the princess, with mild reproach, as she stood before her pilgrims like a hen before her chickens.
  • She looked at him with her beautiful radiant eyes and seemed to say, "I like you very much, but please don't laugh at my people."
  • * "You must know that this is a woman."
  • Where have you been?
  • When I was in Kiev, Crazy Cyril says to me (he's one of God's own and goes barefoot summer and winter), he says, 'Why are you not going to the right place?
  • "All right, all right, you can tell us afterwards," said Princess Mary, flushing.
  • "Did you see it yourselves?" he inquired.
  • "Oh, master, what are you saying?" exclaimed the horrified Pelageya, turning to Princess Mary for support.
  • And he dreamed that the Holy Virgin Mother of the Kiev catacombs came to him and said, 'Believe in me and I will make you whole.'
  • It's the real truth I'm telling you, I saw it myself.
  • Well, and what do you think?
  • God will punish you, she said admonishingly, turning to Pierre.
  • And you who have a son! she began, her pallor suddenly turning to a vivid red.
  • Master, what have you said?
  • "Now, why need you do it?" said Princess Mary.
  • Why did you come to me?...
  • "You are very kind," she said to him.
  • "I have known you a long time, you see, and am as fond of you as of a brother," she said.
  • "How do you find Andrew?" she added hurriedly, not giving him time to reply to her affectionate words.
  • Perhaps I'll come and sit with you at supper.
  • Say what you like....
  • She is like a sister to me, and I can't tell you how it offended me... because... well, for that reason....
  • "Ah, what a mad bweed you Wostovs are!" he muttered, and Rostov noticed tears in his eyes.
  • I ordered you not to let them eat that Mashka woot stuff!
  • "I warn you, Captain," one of the officers, a short thin man, evidently very angry, was saying.
  • "Haven't I told you I won't give them up?" replied Denisov.
  • You will answer for it, Captain.
  • "Now, what are you pestewing me for?" cried Denisov, suddenly losing his temper.
  • I shall answer for it and not you, and you'd better not buzz about here till you get hurt.
  • I enter, and at the table... who do you think?
  • So it's you who's starving us to death!
  • But what are you shouting for?
  • Oh, do the best you can!
  • "What do you want, sir?" said the doctor.
  • What do you want?
  • The bullets having spared you, do you want to try typhus?
  • I can't tell you, sir.
  • Have you got it, Makeev?
  • Tushin, Tushin, don't you remember, who gave you a lift at Schon Grabern?
  • How are you, how are you? he called out, still in the same voice as in the regiment, but Rostov noticed sadly that under this habitual ease and animation some new, sinister, hidden feeling showed itself in the expression of Denisov's face and the intonations of his voice.
  • You know the auditor told you it was a bad business.
  • You know the auditor told you it was a bad business.
  • "The auditor wrote out a petition for you," continued Tushin, "and you ought to sign it and ask this gentleman to take it.
  • You won't find a better opportunity.
  • "You are speaking of Buonaparte?" asked the general, smiling.
  • "You will go far," he said, and took him to Tilsit with him.
  • Very glad, very glad to see you, he said, however, coming toward him with a smile.
  • No, I only wonder how you managed to get away from your regiment.
  • As if you could come at a wrong time! said Boris, and he led him into the room where the supper table was laid and introduced him to his guests, explaining that he was not a civilian, but an hussar officer, and an old friend of his.
  • But if you are tired, come and lie down in my room and have a rest.
  • So you don't want to do anything?
  • "Whom do you want?" someone inquired.
  • Whom have you come from?
  • Are you an officer?
  • And go along with you... go, and he continued to put on the uniform the valet handed him.
  • Where are you off to?
  • Have you seen Lazarev?
  • "Have you heard the password?" asked one Guards' officer of another.
  • "How can you judge what's best?" he cried, the blood suddenly rushing to his face.
  • How can you judge the Emperor's actions?
  • Are you not weary of that stupid, meaningless, constantly repeated fraud?
  • "But when are you coming to bed?" replied another voice.
  • "You go to sleep, but I can't," said the first voice, coming nearer to the window.
  • Oh, how can you sleep?
  • Oh, you only spoil things for me.
  • You are proposing new military laws?
  • Mon cher, even in this case you can't do without Michael Mikhaylovich Speranski.
  • "We were talking to him about you a few days ago," Kochubey continued, "and about your freed plowmen."
  • "Oh, is it you, Prince, who have freed your serfs?" said an old man of Catherine's day, turning contemptuously toward Bolkonski.
  • Just the same as now--I ask you, Count--who will be heads of the departments when everybody has to pass examinations?
  • I had heard of you, as everyone has, he said after a pause.
  • I hope you will find him sympathetic and ready to co- operate in promoting all that is reasonable.
  • "What do you mean?" asked Speranski quietly, lowering his eyes.
  • * "If you regard the question from that point of view."
  • "If you will do me the honor of calling on me on Wednesday," he added, "I will, after talking with Magnitski, let you know what may interest you, and shall also have the pleasure of a more detailed chat with you."
  • That is why it is a sin for men like you, Prince, not to serve in these times!
  • But nobody possesses it, so what would you have?
  • Talking of my family affairs he said to me, the chief duty of a true Mason, as I have told you, lies in perfecting himself.
  • Do you know it?
  • I think you know it already.
  • And I said, "I should have known you had I met you by chance," and I thought to myself, "Am I telling the truth?"
  • "You see," said Berg to his comrade, whom he called "friend" only because he knew that everyone has friends, "you see, I have considered it all, and should not marry if I had not thought it all out or if it were in any way unsuitable.
  • "You see," said Berg to his comrade, whom he called "friend" only because he knew that everyone has friends, "you see, I have considered it all, and should not marry if I had not thought it all out or if it were in any way unsuitable.
  • She is so... you know?...
  • Well, you will be coming," he was going to say, "to dine," but changed his mind and said "to take tea with us," and quickly doubling up his tongue he blew a small round ring of tobacco smoke, perfectly embodying his dream of happiness.
  • You shall be satisfied....
  • Only excuse me, my dear fellow, I'll give you twenty thousand and a note of hand for eighty thousand as well.
  • "Well, do you recognize your little madcap playmate?" asked the countess.
  • How handsome you have grown!
  • Natasha, you are sixteen.
  • You say Boris is nice.
  • What are you thinking about?
  • You have quite turned his head, I can see that....
  • You have quite turned his head, and why?
  • What do you want of him?
  • You know you can't marry him.
  • You know you can't marry him.
  • Because he is young, because he is poor, because he is a relation... and because you yourself don't love him.
  • How do you know?
  • Speak, Mamma, why don't you say anything?
  • I'll tell you some things about myself.
  • How can you know?
  • What do you think?
  • Narrow, you know--gray, light gray...
  • Natasha continued: Don't you really understand?
  • "You flirt with him too," said the countess, laughing.
  • Don't you see the plumes?... was whispered among the crowd.
  • You won't do it right.
  • "Whenever will you be ready?" asked the count coming to the door.
  • Oh, Papa! how nice you look!
  • "If you please, Miss! allow me," said the maid, who on her knees was pulling the skirt straight and shifting the pins from one side of her mouth to the other with her tongue.
  • "Say what you like," exclaimed Sonya, in a despairing voice as she looked at Natasha, "say what you like, it's still too long."
  • That is the Dutch ambassador, do you see?
  • "There's someone else we know--Bolkonski, do you see, Mamma?" said Natasha, pointing out Prince Andrew.
  • You remember, he stayed a night with us at Otradnoe.
  • "Oh, you know him?" said Peronskaya.
  • "Allow me to introduce you to my daughter," said the countess, with heightened color.
  • "Very pleased to see you, Prince," he said.
  • "Where are you off to so early?" asked Speranski.
  • Unfortunately she could not grant my request, but I hope, Count, I shall be more fortunate with you, he said with a smile.
  • What is it you wish, Colonel?
  • I wished to ask the countess and you to do me the honor of coming to tea and to supper.
  • So you will do me the favor.
  • You can get to know something, you can ask for something.
  • You can get to know something, you can ask for something.
  • What do you think?
  • You are so discerning, Prince, and understand people's characters so well at a glance.
  • What do you think of Natalie?
  • What do you think, Prince?
  • Now you know, Count," she said to Pierre, "even our dear cousin Boris, who, between ourselves, was very far gone in the land of tenderness..."
  • "You are friendly with Boris, aren't you?" asked Vera.
  • "You are friendly with Boris, aren't you?" asked Vera.
  • I expect he has told you of his childish love for Natasha?
  • Yes, you know between cousins intimacy often leads to love.
  • Le cousinage est un dangereux voisinage. * Don't you think so?
  • I must have a talk with you, said Prince Andrew.
  • You know that pair of women's gloves?
  • "I... but no, I will talk to you later on," and with a strange light in his eyes and restlessness in his movements, Prince Andrew approached Natasha and sat down beside her.
  • Mamma, are you asleep?
  • "Ah, it's you!" said Pierre with a preoccupied, dissatisfied air.
  • And I, you see, am hard at it.
  • "Well, dear heart," said he, "I wanted to tell you about it yesterday and I have come to do so today.
  • Why don't you speak?
  • What did I tell you? said Pierre suddenly, rising and beginning to pace up and down the room.
  • Do you know the condition I am in?
  • I know you are glad for my sake.
  • I only got back last night," he said glancing at Natasha; "I want to have a talk with you, Countess," he added after a moment's pause.
  • I will call you, said the countess in a whisper.
  • Do you give it to me? said Prince Andrew.
  • And I wished to tell you of that, said Prince Andrew.
  • "I will send her to you," said the countess, and left the room.
  • I have loved you from the very first moment I saw you.
  • Why doubt what you cannot but know?
  • Do you love me?
  • "Did your mother tell you that it cannot be for a year?" asked Prince Andrew, still looking into her eyes.
  • "Hard as this year which delays my happiness will be," continued Prince Andrew, "it will give you time to be sure of yourself.
  • Why do you say that?
  • "You know that from the very day you first came to Otradnoe I have loved you," she cried, quite convinced that she spoke the truth.
  • "You know that from the very day you first came to Otradnoe I have loved you," she cried, quite convinced that she spoke the truth.
  • In a year you will learn to know yourself....
  • He came every day to the Rostovs', but did not behave to Natasha as an affianced lover: he did not use the familiar thou, but said you to her, and kissed only her hand.
  • "You have known Bezukhov a long time?" he asked.
  • Do you like him?
  • Do you know I have entrusted him with our secret?
  • "Whatever trouble may come," Prince Andrew continued, "I beg you, Mademoiselle Sophie, whatever may happen, to turn to him alone for advice and help!
  • "You want to make him"--little Nicholas--"into an old maid like yourself!
  • Your loss is so terrible that I can only explain it to myself as a special providence of God who, loving you, wishes to try you and your excellent mother.
  • And what do you think, dear friend?
  • You ask whether we shall spend next winter in Moscow.
  • In spite of my wish to see you, I do not think so and do not want to do so.
  • You will be surprised to hear that the reason for this is Buonaparte!
  • This irritability is, as you know, chiefly directed to political questions.
  • He, as I wrote you before, has changed very much of late.
  • You write that in Petersburg he is spoken of as one of the most active, cultivated, and capable of the young men.
  • May God keep you in His holy and mighty care.
  • My dear friend, Mademoiselle Bourienne, sends you kisses.
  • You know me and my relations with Father.
  • Perhaps you will go and live with him too? he added, turning to Princess Mary.
  • Well, are you glad?
  • And are you very much in love?
  • "You don't at all understand," she said.
  • "You see he writes," said she, showing her son a letter of Prince Andrew's, with that latent grudge a mother always has in regard to a daughter's future married happiness, "he writes that he won't come before December.
  • Never let me see your face here again, you villain!
  • But you know, my dear boy, it's a pity you got excited!
  • You were angry that he had not entered those 700 rubles.
  • But they were carried forward--and you did not look at the other page.
  • And what I have done, I have done; but, if you like, I won't speak to him again.
  • No, I beg you to attend to the business.
  • Forgive me if I have caused you unpleasantness.
  • I understand it all less than you do.
  • You say it rests with me.
  • "Can you resist it?" those eyes seemed to be asking.
  • "We ought to go, don't you think so?" said Nicholas.
  • "You are going?" asked Natasha.
  • I knew you would!
  • Sonya said you wouldn't go, but I knew that today is the sort of day when you couldn't help going.
  • "You know it is my greatest pleasure," said Natasha.
  • It's not fair; you are going by yourself, are having the horses saddled and said nothing to us about it.
  • Mamma said you mustn't, said Nicholas to Natasha.
  • I knew you wouldn't be able to resist it and it's a good thing you're going.
  • "You mustn't think we'll be in anyone's way, Uncle," she said.
  • "A good thing too, little countess," said "Uncle," "only mind you don't fall off your horse," he added, "because--that's it, come on!--you've nothing to hold on to."
  • If you scare away the beast, Daniel'll give it you!
  • "Have you seen the young countess?" he asked.
  • "Blast you!" he shouted, holding up his whip threateningly at the count.
  • "Ah, but you are a crusty fellow, friend!" said the count.
  • Do you want a taste of this?... said the huntsman, pointing to his dagger and probably imagining himself still speaking to his foe.
  • "Yes, she's fast enough," replied Nicholas, and thought: "If only a full-grown hare would cross the field now I'd show you what sort of borzoi she is," and turning to his groom, he said he would give a ruble to anyone who found a hare.
  • For myself, I can tell you, Count, I enjoy riding in company such as this... what could be better?
  • "And you, Michael Nikanorovich?" he said, addressing "Uncle."
  • Try yours against one another, you two, and I'll look on!
  • "Rugay, here's a pad for you!" he said, throwing down the hare's muddy pad.
  • And if you put up at my house that will be better still.
  • You see it's damp weather, and you could rest, and the little countess could be driven home in a trap.
  • You see it's damp weather, and you could rest, and the little countess could be driven home in a trap.
  • "How is it you didn't go head over heels?" asked the boldest of all, addressing Natasha directly.
  • Now do you understand 'Uncle'? her expression said to Rostov.
  • Why don't you enter the service, Uncle?
  • That's for you--I haven't brains enough.
  • Why have you shut it?
  • "Do you play then?" asked Natasha.
  • "What were you thinking about just now, Nicholas?" inquired Natasha.
  • Well, you see, first I thought that Rugay, the red hound, was like Uncle, and that if he were a man he would always keep Uncle near him, if not for his riding, then for his manner.
  • Don't you think so?...
  • "I know, I expect you thought of him," said Nicholas, smiling as Natasha knew by the sound of his voice.
  • "No, you have not understood me," said his mother, not knowing how to justify herself.
  • You have not understood me, Nikolenka.
  • I would sacrifice anything for you--even my feelings.
  • "No, you have not understood me, don't let us talk about it," she replied, wiping away her tears.
  • 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.
  • "Why are you wandering about like an outcast?" asked her mother.
  • What do you want?
  • Yes, go to the yard and fetch a fowl, please, a cock, and you, Misha, bring me some oats.
  • And you, Theodore, get me a piece of chalk.
  • "Oh, you are there!" said Sonya with a start, and came near and listened.
  • "Where were you going?" she asked.
  • "You always find something to do, but I can't," said Natasha.
  • Do you remember when I was punished once about some plums?
  • You were all dancing, and I sat sobbing in the schoolroom?
  • I remember that I came to you afterwards and wanted to comfort you, but do you know, I felt ashamed to.
  • He was gray, you remember, and had white teeth, and stood and looked at us...
  • "Sonya, do you remember?" asked Nicholas.
  • But you see, you remember!
  • And do you remember how we rolled hard-boiled eggs in the ballroom, and suddenly two old women began spinning round on the carpet?
  • Do you remember what fun it was?
  • Yes, and you remember how Papa in his blue overcoat fired a gun in the porch?
  • Dimmler struck a chord and, turning to Natasha, Nicholas, and Sonya, remarked: "How quiet you young people are!"
  • "Do you know," said Natasha in a whisper, moving closer to Nicholas and Sonya, "that when one goes on and on recalling memories, one at last begins to remember what happened before one was in the world..."
  • "May I join you?" said Dimmler who had come up quietly, and he sat down by them.
  • Why are you sitting there like conspirators?
  • Besides, you wouldn't have room to turn round there.
  • If you must go, go to the Melyukovs'.
  • "You go ahead, Zakhar!" shouted Nicholas to his father's coachman, wishing for a chance to race past him.
  • "No you won't, master!" he shouted.
  • "Aren't you cold?" he asked.
  • Well, you have cheered us up!
  • Well, Mr. Hussar, and what regiment do you serve in? she asked Natasha.
  • You wouldn't go, it takes courage...
  • Well, say you went to the barn now, and listened.
  • It depends on what you hear; hammering and knocking--that's bad; but a sound of shifting grain is good and one sometimes hears that, too.
  • Mamma, tell us what happened to you in the barn.
  • But none of you would go?
  • "Natasha!" he whispered in French, "do you know I have made up my mind about Sonya?"
  • "Have you told her?" asked Natasha, suddenly beaming all over with joy.
  • Oh, how strange you are with that mustache and those eyebrows!...
  • Natasha--are you glad?
  • You have done splendidly.
  • So you are glad and I have done right?
  • "You mustn't laugh, Miss," said Dunyasha.
  • You sit down now, Sonya.
  • You absolutely must, tonight!
  • "Now, Miss Sonya is sure to see something," whispered Dunyasha; "while you do nothing but laugh."
  • "You saw him?" urged Natasha, seizing her hand.
  • Nicholas, you are talking nonsense!
  • Be quiet, be quiet, be quiet, I tell you!... she almost screamed, so as to drown his voice.
  • "And if you allow yourself," he screamed in a fury, addressing Princess Mary for the first time, "to forget yourself again before her as you dared to do yesterday, I will show you who is master in this house.
  • Don't let me set eyes on you; beg her pardon!
  • "You don't understand?" shouted the prince, "but I do!
  • Did you hear of the last event at the review in Petersburg?
  • There now, you turned Metivier out by the scruff of his neck because he is a Frenchman and a scoundrel, but our ladies crawl after him on their knees.
  • "You noticed nothing?" her look asked.
  • "Have you known that young man long, Princess?" he asked.
  • Do you like him?
  • Why do you ask me that? said Princess Mary, still thinking of that morning's conversation with her father.
  • "You have observed that?" said Princess Mary.
  • At present he is hesitating whom to lay siege to-- you or Mademoiselle Julie Karagina.
  • Would you marry him?
  • "Ah, how bitter it is to love someone near to you and to feel that..." she went on in a trembling voice, "that you can do nothing for him but grieve him, and to know that you cannot alter this.
  • "Have you any news of the Rostovs?" she asked, to change the subject.
  • You have known them a long time, said Princess Mary.
  • Tell her so if you see her before I do.
  • "Ah, my dear, I can't tell you how fond I have grown of Julie latterly," she said to her son.
  • What do you think of it, my dear?
  • You know my feelings for you!
  • Now what are you dawdling for? she cried to the maids.
  • I'm heartily glad you have come and are staying with me.
  • What do you want tomorrow?
  • Whom will you send for?
  • You know not a day passes now without some new fashion....
  • And what have you to do yourself? she asked the count sternly.
  • If you will be so kind, I'll fix a time and go down to the estate just for a day, and leave my lassies with you.
  • I congratulate you on your betrothed.
  • You know that old Prince Nicholas much dislikes his son's marrying.
  • You see I have known him a long time and am also fond of Mary, your future sister-in-law.
  • She has asked me to bring you two together.
  • When he comes, he'll find you already know his sister and father and are liked by them.
  • "There, my dear princess, I've brought you my songstress," said the count, bowing and looking round uneasily as if afraid the old prince might appear.
  • I beg you to excuse me, to excuse me...
  • God is my witness, I did not know you had honored us with a visit, and I came in such a costume only to see my daughter.
  • I beg you to excuse me...
  • I beg you to excuse me, excuse me!
  • But if you only knew how offensive it was... as if I...
  • It wasn't your fault so why should you mind?
  • I can't tell you, I don't know.
  • "Do you recognize him?" said he.
  • They swear by him, they offer him to you as they would a dish of choice sterlet.
  • Dear count, you must let me look after your daughters!
  • 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?
  • "Let me introduce my brother to you," said Helene, her eyes shifting uneasily from Natasha to Anatole.
  • "And do you know, Countess," he said, suddenly addressing her as an old, familiar acquaintance, "we are getting up a costume tournament; you ought to take part in it!
  • Do come!" and putting out his hand to her bouquet and dropping his voice, he added, "You will be the prettiest there.
  • "You know, I adore little girls, they lose their heads at once," pursued Anatole.
  • How can you live in Moscow and go nowhere?
  • No, I won't let you off!
  • "But anything suits you, my charmer!" she remarked.
  • My brother dined with me yesterday--we nearly died of laughter--he ate nothing and kept sighing for you, my charmer!
  • He is madly, quite madly, in love with you, my dear.
  • You must certainly come.
  • If you love somebody, my charmer, that is not a reason to shut yourself up.
  • I don't care to have anything to do with Bezukhova and don't advise you to; however, if you've promised--go.
  • "I don't think so when I look at you!" said Anatole, following Natasha.
  • You are enchanting... from the moment I saw you I have never ceased...
  • You are enchanting... from the moment I saw you I have never ceased...
  • I tell you I am madly, madly, in love with you!
  • Is it my fault that you are enchanting?...
  • I cannot come to visit you but is it possible that I shall never see you?
  • I love you madly.
  • Yesterday, as you know, I went to see Prince Bolkonski.
  • Being here, you had to pay your respects.
  • Though I don't like letting you go, it is the best way.
  • She's afraid you might think that she does not like you.
  • "A man told me to give you this-" and she handed Natasha a letter.
  • I can't hide it from you any longer.
  • You know, we love one another!
  • "Ah, Sonya, if you only knew how happy I am!" cried Natasha.
  • You don't know what love is....
  • "Well, then, are you refusing Prince Andrew?" said Sonya.
  • Oh, you don't understand anything!
  • How is it you have loved a man for a whole year and suddenly...
  • Why, you have only seen him three times!
  • Natasha, I don't believe you, you're joking!
  • You can't understand it....
  • 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.
  • You don't understand that.
  • "But think what you are doing," cried Sonya.
  • How could you let him go so far? she went on, with a horror and disgust she could hardly conceal.
  • "I told you that I have no will," Natasha replied.
  • Why can't you understand?
  • What do you mean?
  • If you tell, you are my enemy! declared Natasha.
  • You want me to be miserable, you want us to be separated....
  • You want me to be miserable, you want us to be separated....
  • "But what has happened between you?" she asked.
  • You know Prince Andrew gave you complete freedom--if it is really so; but I don't believe it!
  • You know Prince Andrew gave you complete freedom--if it is really so; but I don't believe it!
  • Natasha, have you considered what these secret reasons can be?
  • Don't you understand? she cried.
  • Why, you have read his letter and you have seen him.
  • If you only knew! exclaimed Natasha.
  • If he is an honorable man he should either declare his intentions or cease seeing you; and if you won't do this, I will.
  • And what are you saying!
  • How dare you say he is dishonorable?
  • Don't you know that I love him? screamed Natasha.
  • I don't want to quarrel with you, but go, for God's sake go!
  • You see how I am suffering!
  • Oh, Sonya, if you knew him as I do!
  • "But you haven't refused Bolkonski?" said she.
  • Why do you think so badly of me?
  • "Natasha," said she, "you asked me not to speak to you, and I haven't spoken, but now you yourself have begun.
  • It won't be you, but I, who'll suffer.
  • "Makarka" (their name for Makarin) "will go through fire and water for you for nothing.
  • If you only knew... it's the devil knows what!
  • "You wait a bit," he called after him.
  • I'm telling you this for the last time.
  • Well, thank you for it.
  • Do you think I am not grateful?
  • I helped you, but all the same I must tell you the truth; it is a dangerous business, and if you think about it--a stupid business.
  • Why, they'll have you in the criminal court....
  • Let me have what you can to go to the fair.
  • "I say, Balaga," said Anatole, putting his hands on the man's shoulders, "do you care for me or not?
  • What horses have you come with?
  • Didn't we get you to Tver in seven hours?
  • I think you remember that, your excellency?
  • "Do you know, one Christmas I drove from Tver," said Anatole, smilingly at the recollection and turning to Makarin who gazed rapturously at him with wide-open eyes.
  • Will you believe it, Theodore Ivanych, those animals flew forty miles?
  • Thank you for everything and farewell! said Anatole.
  • All take glasses; you too, Balaga.
  • Why, she'll rush out more dead than alive just in the things she is wearing; if you delay at all there'll be tears and 'Papa' and 'Mamma,' and she's frozen in a minute and must go back--but you wrap the fur cloak round her first thing and carry her to the sleigh.
  • Fool, I told you the sable one!
  • "Well, Prince, may God give you great luck!" said Matrena in her gypsy accent.
  • "Well, are you ready?" asked Balaga.
  • Who are you? asked Anatole in a breathless whisper.
  • "You shameless good-for-nothing!" said she.
  • It's no use pretending: you listen when I speak to you!
  • I'd treat you differently, but I'm sorry for your father, so I will conceal it.
  • "Do you hear what I am saying or not?" she added.
  • I won't tell you how guilty you are.
  • You know that yourself.
  • Why have you interfered at all?
  • Who asked you to? shouted Natasha, raising herself on the sofa and looking malignantly at Marya Dmitrievna.
  • "But what did you want?" cried Marya Dmitrievna, growing angry again.
  • Were you kept under lock and key?
  • Why carry you off as if you were some gypsy singing girl?...
  • Well, if he had carried you off... do you think they wouldn't have found him?
  • "He is better than any of you!" exclaimed Natasha getting up.
  • If you hadn't interfered...
  • What is the matter with you, my angel?
  • Are you ill? asked the count.
  • Behave as if you know nothing either, she said.
  • And stay to dinner if you care to! she called after Pierre.
  • Have you heard she has broken off her engagement without consulting anybody?
  • Marya Dmitrievna is with her and she too asks you to come.
  • "Yes, you are a great friend of Bolkonski's, no doubt she wants to send him a message," said the count.
  • Let him tell you whether I have told the truth.
  • "Natalya Ilynichna," Pierre began, dropping his eyes with a feeling of pity for her and loathing for the thing he had to do, "whether it is true or not should make no difference to you, because..."
  • You don't know what a plight he had to endure.
  • "Where you are, there is vice and evil!" said Pierre to his wife.
  • I must speak to you, he added in French.
  • "If you allow yourself in my drawing room..." whispered Helene, but Pierre did not reply and went out of the room.
  • You promised Countess Rostova to marry her and were about to elope with her, is that so?
  • "When I tell you that I must talk to you!..." repeated Pierre.
  • Did you promise to marry her?
  • Have you any letters of hers?
  • "Secondly," he continued after a short pause, again rising and again pacing the room, "tomorrow you must get out of Moscow."
  • "Thirdly," Pierre continued without listening to him, "you must never breathe a word of what has passed between you and Countess Rostova.
  • I know I can't prevent your doing so, but if you have a spark of conscience...
  • After all, you must understand that besides your pleasure there is such a thing as other people's happiness and peace, and that you are ruining a whole life for the sake of amusing yourself!
  • Amuse yourself with women like my wife--with them you are within your rights, for they know what you want of them.
  • They are armed against you by the same experience of debauchery; but to promise a maid to marry her... to deceive, to kidnap....
  • Don't you understand that it is as mean as beating an old man or a child?...
  • "I don't know that and don't want to," he said, not looking at Pierre and with a slight tremor of his lower jaw, "but you have used such words to me--'mean' and so on--which as a man of honor I can't allow anyone to use."
  • "Is it satisfaction you want?" said Pierre ironically.
  • You could at least take back your words.
  • If you want me to do as you wish, eh?
  • "I take them back, I take them back!" said Pierre, "and I ask you to forgive me."
  • And if you require money for your journey...
  • Give this to the countess... if you see her.
  • "I say, do you remember our discussion in Petersburg?" asked Pierre, "about..."
  • If you wish to be my friend never speak to me of that... of all that!
  • I should like to know, did you love...
  • Pierre did not know how to refer to Anatole and flushed at the thought of him--"did you love that bad man?"
  • You have your whole life before you, said he to her.
  • You have your whole life before you, said he to her.
  • Did you see the Emperor?
  • Vive l'Empereur!... preur!--If they make me Governor of India, Gerard, I'll make you Minister of Kashmir-- that's settled.
  • There he is, do you see him?
  • I've seen him twice, as I see you now.
  • I won't detain you longer, General.
  • "Your Emperor's orders are obeyed in your army, but here," said Davout, "you must do as you're told."
  • "You are perfectly at liberty to treat me with respect or not," protested Balashev, "but permit me to observe that I have the honor to be adjutant general to His Majesty...."
  • "You will be treated as is fitting," said he and, putting the packet in his pocket, left the shed.
  • I have received the letter you brought from the Emperor Alexander and am very glad to see you.
  • You are flurried--compose yourself!
  • "So now you want me to retire beyond the Niemen--only the Niemen?" repeated Napoleon, looking straight at Balashev.
  • If you gave me Petersburg and Moscow I could not accept such conditions.
  • You say I have begun this war!
  • And you offer me negotiations when I have expended millions, when you are in alliance with England, and when your position is a bad one.
  • You offer me negotiations!
  • What has she given you? he continued hurriedly, evidently no longer trying to show the advantages of peace and discuss its possibility, but only to prove his own rectitude and power and Alexander's errors and duplicity.
  • I hear you have made peace with Turkey?
  • 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.
  • You have not two hundred thousand men, and I have three times that number.
  • I give you my word of honor," said Napoleon, forgetting that his word of honor could carry no weight--"I give you my word of honor that I have five hundred and thirty thousand men this side of the Vistula.
  • The Turks will be of no use to you; they are worth nothing and have shown it by making peace with you.
  • "Know that if you stir up Prussia against me, I'll wipe it off the map of Europe!" he declared, his face pale and distorted by anger, and he struck one of his small hands energetically with the other.
  • Yes, I will throw you back beyond the Dvina and beyond the Dnieper, and will re- erect against you that barrier which it was criminal and blind of Europe to allow to be destroyed.
  • That is what you have gained by alienating me!
  • Napoleon nodded condescendingly, as if to say, I know it's your duty to say that, but you don't believe it yourself.
  • I will detain you no longer, General; you shall receive my letter to the Emperor.
  • If there is any misunderstanding and discord between you and Mary, I can't blame her for it at all.
  • Let not a trace of you remain here!...
  • I am very sorry you can't.
  • "Why do you say that?" replied Princess Mary.
  • Why do you say that, when you are going to this terrible war, and he is so old?
  • "I understand you" (she looked down).
  • If you think someone has wronged you, forget it and forgive!
  • And then you will know the happiness of forgiving.
  • Why, you yourselves know everything better than I do.
  • Have you heard of Raevski's exploit?
  • And why do you stand there gaping?
  • "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.
  • "No, gentlemen, you have had your sleep, but I have not slept for two nights," replied the doctor, and he sat down morosely beside his wife, waiting for the game to end.
  • You know, we could crush them....
  • "You'll never get well like that," she would say, forgetting her grief in her vexation, "if you won't obey the doctor and take your medicine at the right time!
  • You know Nicholas has received a St. George's Cross?
  • But I don't want to interrupt you, he added, and was about to go to the drawing room.
  • But why do you ask me?
  • "I don't know myself," Natasha answered quickly, "but I should not like to do anything you disapproved of.
  • I believe in you completely.
  • You don't know how important you are to me, how much you've done for me....
  • You don't know how important you are to me, how much you've done for me....
  • What do you think?"--she was speaking hurriedly, evidently afraid her strength might fail her-- "Will he ever forgive me?
  • What do you think?
  • What do you think?
  • "Yes, you... you..." she said, uttering the word you rapturously-- "that's a different thing.
  • "Well, mon cher, have you got the manifesto?" asked the old count.
  • And have you heard?
  • And how about you, Count Peter Kirilych?
  • If they call up the militia, you too will have to mount a horse, remarked the old count, addressing Pierre.
  • Here's a patriot for you! said Shinshin.
  • Everything seems funny to you, but this isn't at all a joke....
  • "But did you notice, it says, 'for consultation'?" said Pierre.
  • Well, Papa, I tell you definitely, and Mamma too, it's as you please, but I say definitely that you must let me enter the army, because I can't... that's all....
  • But you said yourself that we would sacrifice everything.
  • Be quiet, I tell you! cried the count, with a glance at his wife, who had turned pale and was staring fixedly at her son.
  • And I tell you--Peter Kirilych here will also tell you...
  • Your mother's milk has hardly dried on your lips and you want to go into the army!
  • There, there, I tell you, and the count moved to go out of the room, taking the papers, probably to reread them in his study before having a nap.
  • Why, you meant to spend the evening with us....
  • Why are you going?
  • Why are you upset? asked Natasha, and she looked challengingly into Pierre's eyes.
  • "Because I love you!" was what he wanted to say, but he did not say it, and only blushed till the tears came, and lowered his eyes.
  • What are you shoving for, young lordling?
  • Don't you see we're all standing still?
  • What are you up to?
  • Are you satisfied now? said he.
  • I'm old and weak and this is what you wanted.
  • You plotted against me, you lied to Prince Andrew about my relations with that Frenchwoman and made me quarrel with him, but you see I need neither her nor you!
  • Well, Michael Ivanovich," he suddenly went on, raising his head and pointing to the plan of the building, "tell me how you mean to alter it...."
  • "You brute, you murderer!" screamed a thin, pale woman who, with a baby in her arms and her kerchief torn from her head, burst through the door at that moment and down the steps into the yard.
  • Lucky you jumped aside, or it would have wiped you out!
  • "What are you staring at?" he shouted to the cook, who in her red skirt, with sleeves rolled up, swinging her bare elbows, had stepped to the corner to listen to what was being said.
  • "Scoundrel, what are you doing?" shouted the innkeeper, rushing to the cook.
  • I'll teach you to run into the yards!
  • "Why are you here?" he asked.
  • Why are you here?
  • Let me know at once when you will start.
  • "You are a colonel?" shouted the chief of staff with a German accent, in a voice familiar to Prince Andrew.
  • Houses are set on fire in your presence and you stand by!
  • You must please excuse me, he went on apologetically.
  • "Well then," continued Prince Andrew to Alpatych, "report to them as I have told you"; and not replying a word to Berg who was now mute beside him, he touched his horse and rode down the side street.
  • "If you noticed some disorder in the garden," said Alpatych, "it was impossible to prevent it.
  • Well, and what are you going to do?
  • Will you stay here if the enemy occupies the place? asked Prince Andrew.
  • You must go away too, take away what you can and tell the serfs to go to the Ryazan estate or to the one near Moscow.
  • You must go away too, take away what you can and tell the serfs to go to the Ryazan estate or to the one near Moscow.
  • Wouldn't you like to? said he.
  • "We'll clear it out for you in a minute," said Timokhin, and, still undressed, ran off to clear the men out of the pond.
  • I swear to you on my honor that Napoleon was in such a fix as never before and might have lost half his army but could not have taken Smolensk.
  • There is a rumor that you are thinking of peace.
  • God forbid that you should make peace after all our sacrifices and such insane retreats!
  • You would set all Russia against you and every one of us would feel ashamed to wear the uniform.
  • You would set all Russia against you and every one of us would feel ashamed to wear the uniform.
  • So I write you frankly: call out the militia.
  • Well, have you heard the great news?
  • Do you know what he said to the Emperor?
  • You are a Cossack?
  • The doctor thought he had guessed them, and inquiringly repeated: "Mary, are you afraid?"
  • "Always thoughts... about you... thoughts..." he then uttered much more clearly than he had done before, now that he was sure of being understood.
  • Why didn't you come in?
  • "Thank you... daughter dear!... for all, for all... forgive!... thank you!... forgive!... thank you!..." and tears began to flow from his eyes.
  • You must be prepared for everything, said the Marshal, meeting her at the house door.
  • "I can see through you and three yards into the ground under you," he continued, gazing at the floor in front of Dron.
  • You drop this nonsense and tell the people to get ready to leave their homes and go to Moscow and to get carts ready for tomorrow morning for the princess' things.
  • And don't go to any meeting yourself, do you hear?
  • What is it you have got into your heads, eh?...
  • What are you thinking of, eh?
  • I'll go to the police officer, and you tell them so, and that they must stop this and the carts must be got ready.
  • Yes, you can well enjoy the evening now!
  • He is gone and no one will hinder you, she said to herself, and sinking into a chair she let her head fall on the window sill.
  • I understand that you could not, and cannot, think of yourself, but with my love for you I must do so....
  • Has he spoken to you of going away? she asked.
  • "You know, chere Marie," said Mademoiselle Bourienne, "that we are in danger--are surrounded by the French.
  • Because, you will agree, chere Marie, to fall into the hands of the soldiers or of riotous peasants would be terrible.
  • "From whom did you get this?" she asked.
  • Why shouldn't you go away, your excellency?
  • You can go, said Dron.
  • But why didn't you tell me, Dronushka?
  • "Give it to the peasants, let them have all they need; I give you leave in my brother's name," said she.
  • They say they don't agree to leave Bogucharovo as you ordered.
  • You must have given my message wrong.
  • I only said that you were to give them the grain.
  • "If you order it they will go away," said he.
  • I am giving you everything, my friends, and I beg you to take everything, all our grain, so that you may not suffer want!
  • On the contrary, I ask you to go with all your belongings to our estate near Moscow, and I promise you I will see to it that there you shall want for nothing.
  • You shall be given food and lodging.
  • "But why don't you want to take it?" she asked again.
  • "Why don't you speak?" she inquired of a very old man who stood just in front of her leaning on his stick.
  • If you think something more is wanted, tell me!
  • We are sorry for you, but we're not willing.
  • "But you can't have understood me," said Princess Mary with a sad smile.
  • Why don't you want to go?
  • 'I'll give you grain, indeed!' she says, voices in the crowd were heard saying.
  • "Who do you belong to?" he asked.
  • "Then you are Russians?" the peasant asked again.
  • "And is there a large force of you here?" said another, a short man, coming up.
  • "But why have you collected here?" he added.
  • "What do you want, my pretty?" said Ilyin with a smile.
  • "My mistress, daughter of General in Chief Prince Nicholas Bolkonski who died on the fifteenth of this month, finding herself in difficulties owing to the boorishness of these people"--he pointed to the peasants--"asks you to come up to the house....
  • "I have the honor to report to you the actual truth," said Alpatych.
  • God has sent you! exclaimed deeply moved voices as Rostov passed through the anteroom.
  • Go when you please, and I give you my word of honor that no one shall dare to cause you annoyance if only you will allow me to act as your escort.
  • The peasants are rioting, and you can't manage them?
  • I'll flay you all alive!...
  • What does it matter to you whether our homes are ruined or not?
  • You begrudged your lump of a son," a little old man suddenly began attacking Dron-- "and so they took my Vanka to be shaved for a soldier!
  • What do you want with him?... asked Karp.
  • It's as the old men have decided--there's too many of you giving orders.
  • Are you the Elder?
  • "And you all listen to me!" said Rostov to the peasants.
  • "Aye, when I look at you!..." said one of them to Karp.
  • You know it has cost money!
  • How can you chuck it in like that or shove it under the cord where it'll get rubbed?
  • If you don't want to make me blush, please don't thank me!
  • What do you want?
  • Did you take part in the campaign? he asked.
  • So you are Pwince Andwew Bolkonski?
  • Ah, how do you do, my dear prince?
  • How do you do, my dear boy?
  • "What?" said Kutuzov, in the midst of Denisov's explanations, "are you ready so soon?"
  • "What relation are you to Intendant General Kiril Andreevich Denisov?" asked Kutuzov, interrupting him.
  • I tell you once for all, my dear fellow," said he, "into the fire with all such things!
  • If I decline the honor of being with you, believe me...
  • The regiments would not be what they are if the would-be advisers served there as you do.
  • I remember you at Austerlitz....
  • I remember, yes, I remember you with the standard! said Kutuzov, and a flush of pleasure suffused Prince Andrew's face at this recollection.
  • I missed you at Bucharest, but I needed someone to send.
  • "I'll tell you what to do," he continued, as Prince Andrew still did not reply: "I will tell you what to do, and what I do.
  • If you want anything come straight to me.
  • "You don't spare anyone," said Julie Drubetskaya as she collected and pressed together a bunch of raveled lint with her thin, beringed fingers.
  • "You spare no one," continued Julie to the young man without heeding the author's remark.
  • No, no," she said to the militia officer, "you won't catch me.
  • Speak of the sun and you see its rays! and she smiled amiably at Pierre.
  • "We were just talking of you," she said with the facility in lying natural to a society woman.
  • "You will, of course, command it yourself?" said Julie, directing a sly, sarcastic glance toward the militia officer.
  • You don't think Moscow is in danger?
  • Then why are you leaving?
  • You know, Count, such knights as you are only found in Madame de Souza's novels.
  • You know, Count, such knights as you are only found in Madame de Souza's novels.
  • What do you mean? demanded Pierre, blushing.
  • Come now, Count, you know!
  • I know you were friendly with Natalie, and so... but I was always more friendly with Vera--that dear Vera.
  • Do you know what I heard today?
  • Do you know that she has lost her father?
  • But do you know who rescued her?
  • "Excuse my coming to you, cousin," she said in a reproachful and agitated voice.
  • You know some decision must be come to.
  • I ask just one thing of you, cousin," she went on, "arrange for me to be taken to Petersburg.
  • Where do you get your information from?
  • If you don't want to do this...
  • You take everything so to heart, said Pierre, and began laying out his cards for patience.
  • "Where are you going?" shouted Pierre to the man, who was driving to Lubyanka Street.
  • "To the Governor's, as you ordered," answered the coachman.
  • Your excellency, how come you to be here? asked the doctor.
  • Well, you know, I wanted to see...
  • "Why should you be God knows where out of sight, during the battle?" he said, exchanging glances with his young companion.
  • Anyhow his Serene Highness knows you and will receive you graciously.
  • That's what you must do.
  • Ah, I also wanted to ask you where our position is exactly? said Pierre.
  • "I would go with you but on my honor I'm up to here"--and he pointed to his throat.
  • You know, Count, there'll be a battle tomorrow.
  • "May I ask you," said Pierre, "what village that is in front?"
  • There they are, there... you can see them.
  • I can tell you quite clearly, because I constructed nearly all our entrenchments.
  • You see down there where the rows of hay are lying in the hollow, there's the bridge.
  • Well, you see, that's difficult to explain....
  • Yesterday our left flank was there at Shevardino, you see, where the oak is, but now we have withdrawn our left wing--now it is over there, do you see that village and the smoke?
  • And you, are you one of the doctors?
  • How did you get here? said a voice.
  • "This is what you must do," said Boris.
  • You will see everything best from where Count Bennigsen will be.
  • I am in attendance on him, you know; I'll mention it to him.
  • But if you want to ride round the position, come along with us.
  • Of course you know Dmitri Sergeevich?
  • Well, you can do that later, but the chief thing is the left flank.
  • Can you point it out to me?
  • We shall pass it and I'll take you to him.
  • "To tell you the truth, between ourselves, God only knows what state our left flank is in," said Boris confidentially lowering his voice.
  • You see... but Boris did not finish, for at that moment Kaysarov, Kutuzov's adjutant, came up to Pierre.
  • "You mean the left flank?" asked Kaysarov.
  • I concluded that if I reported to your Serene Highness you might send me away or say that you knew what I was reporting, but then I shouldn't lose anything...
  • "What are you saying about the militia?" he asked Boris.
  • "So you want to smell gunpowder?" he said to Pierre.
  • I beg you to forgive me.
  • "It will interest you," said he.
  • What brings you here?
  • "I have come... simply... you know... come... it interests me," said Pierre, who had so often that day senselessly repeated that word "interesting."
  • So you understand the whole position of our troops?
  • "Yes--that is, how do you mean?" said Pierre.
  • "Well, then, you know more than anyone else, be it who it may," said Prince Andrew.
  • "Well, and what do you think of Kutuzov's appointment?" he asked.
  • What do you think of him?
  • You see, we were going away, so he would get it all; wasn't it so, your excellency? and again Timokhin turned to the prince.
  • Well, say your father has a German valet, and he is a splendid valet and satisfies your father's requirements better than you could, then it's all right to let him serve.
  • You talk about our position, the left flank weak and the right flank too extended, he went on.
  • The fact is that those men with whom you have ridden round the position not only do not help matters, but hinder.
  • And if you like I will tell you that whatever happens and whatever muddles those at the top may make, we shall win tomorrow's battle.
  • That's what I was saying to you-- those German gentlemen won't win the battle tomorrow but will only make all the mess they can, because they have nothing in their German heads but theories not worth an empty eggshell and haven't in their hearts the one thing needed tomorrow--that which Timokhin has.
  • "So you think we shall win tomorrow's battle?" asked Pierre.
  • I'm not telling it right; no, you don't understand, though he encouraged her by saying that he did understand, and he really had understood all she wanted to say.
  • "I'll see you later," he added, and summoned de Beausset, who by that time had prepared the surprise, having placed something on the chairs and covered it with a cloth.
  • You have hurried here.
  • "I am very sorry to have made you travel so far," said he.
  • "Sire, I expected nothing less than to find you at the gates of Moscow," replied de Beausset.
  • You are fond of travel, and in three days you will see Moscow.
  • You are fond of travel, and in three days you will see Moscow.
  • You surely did not expect to see that Asiatic capital.
  • You will have a pleasant journey.
  • This is the battle you have so longed for.
  • Behave as you did at Austerlitz, Friedland, Vitebsk, and Smolensk.
  • Let it be said of each of you: "He was in the great battle before Moscow!"
  • Well, Rapp, do you think we shall do good business today?
  • "Do you remember, sire, what you did me the honor to say at Smolensk?" continued Rapp.
  • Let life go on in it unhindered and let it defend itself, it will do more than if you paralyze it by encumbering it with remedies.
  • "Do you know, Rapp, what military art is?" asked he.
  • Do you remember at Braunau he commanded an army for three weeks and did not once mount a horse to inspect his entrenchments....
  • "What year did you enter the service?" he asked with that affectation of military bluntness and geniality with which he always addressed the soldiers.
  • "How have you got here?" he said, and galloped on.
  • May I come with you? he asked.
  • "Why have you come here, Count?" he asked with a smile.
  • "Yes, I'll come with you," replied Pierre, looking round for his groom.
  • "You don't seem to be used to riding, Count?" remarked the adjutant.
  • I congratulate you, Count, on your baptism of fire!
  • You must not be here.
  • "Are you afraid, then?" said Pierre.
  • "What else do you expect?" answered the soldier.
  • "Are you bowing to a friend, eh?" remarked another, chaffing a peasant who ducked low as a cannon ball flew over.
  • "Now then, you foxes!" said another, laughing at some militiamen who, stooping low, entered the battery to carry away the wounded man.
  • "You are very fiery, Belliard," said Napoleon, when he again came up to the general.
  • "Now then, what do you want?" asked Napoleon in the tone of a man irritated at being continually disturbed.
  • What do you say? asked Napoleon.
  • You know nothing about it.
  • Then you do not think, like some others, that we must retreat?
  • And you," he continued, addressing another, "ride along the line and announce that tomorrow we attack."
  • What are you waiting for?
  • I tell you surely...
  • What are you waiting for? he cried angrily to the dressers.
  • What are you doing?
  • You may go and kill whom you please, but I don't want to do so anymore!
  • You may go and kill whom you please, but I don't want to do so anymore!
  • "Give me your hand," said he and, turning it over so as to feel the pulse, added: "You are not well, my dear fellow.
  • Think what you are saying!
  • Allow me to tell you, your excellency, that that question has no meaning for a Russian.
  • Some of you will not agree with me.
  • "You should take some rest, your Serene Highness," replied Schneider.
  • A woman sacrifices herself for you, she suffers, and this is her reward!
  • What right have you, monseigneur, to demand an account of my attachments and friendships?
  • "You won't deign to demean yourself by marrying me, you..." said Helene, beginning to cry.
  • "You won't deign to demean yourself by marrying me, you..." said Helene, beginning to cry.
  • You swerved from it.
  • What did you commit by so acting?
  • A venial sin, for you acted without evil intention.
  • If now you married again with the object of bearing children, your sin might be forgiven.
  • Perhaps you think you have invented a novelty?
  • "Helene, I have a word to say to you," and he would lead her aside, drawing her hand downward.
  • I have heard of certain projects concerning... you know.
  • Well my dear child, you know how your father's heart rejoices to know that you...
  • You have suffered so much....
  • Tell me, as you would a sister, what I ought to do.
  • "You are not taking me unawares, you know," said he.
  • "You are not taking me unawares, you know," said he.
  • But I love them, you know, and don't want to distress either of them.
  • "Even divorce you?" said he.
  • You don't understand anything.
  • Oh, Mamma, how is it you don't understand that the Holy Father, who has the right to grant dispensations...
  • And so I pray God to have you, my friend, in His holy and powerful keeping--Your friend Helene.
  • "And who may you be?" one of them suddenly asked Pierre, evidently meaning what Pierre himself had in mind, namely: "If you want to eat we'll give you some food, only let us know whether you are an honest man."
  • "Would you like a little mash?" the first soldier asked, and handed Pierre a wooden spoon after licking it clean.
  • Where have you to go to?
  • Well then, Peter Kirilych, come along with us, we'll take you there.
  • How is it you are on foot?
  • And where are you going, please?
  • The count wants to see you particularly.
  • He asks you to come to him at once on a very important matter.
  • "But you see what he writes..." said another, pointing to a printed sheet he held in his hand.
  • But what have you heard?
  • Oh, well, you know people often invent things.
  • But what did you hear?
  • Perhaps you have heard of that affair with the proclamation.
  • "It's a complicated story, you know," said the adjutant.
  • He asked one, 'From whom did you get it?' 'From so-and-so.'
  • 'From whom did you get it?' and so on till he reached Vereshchagin, a half educated tradesman, you know, 'a pet of a trader,' said the adjutant smiling.
  • They asked him, 'Who gave it you?'
  • 'From whom did you get the proclamation?' 'I wrote it myself.'
  • 'How could you have written it yourself?' said he, and he took up the Hamburg Gazette that was lying on the table.
  • And what do you think?
  • 'No,' said he, 'I have not read any papers, I made it up myself.' 'If that's so, you're a traitor and I'll have you tried, and you'll be hanged!
  • Say from whom you had it.' 'I have seen no papers, I made it up myself.'
  • You know that sort of tradesman's son, a dandy and lady-killer.
  • His father keeps a cookshop here by the Stone Bridge, and you know there was a large icon of God Almighty painted with a scepter in one hand and an orb in the other.
  • "Ah, how do you do, great warrior?" said Rostopchin as soon as the short man had left the room.
  • There, you see, mon cher!
  • It has now come to my knowledge that you lent him your carriage for his removal from town, and that you have even accepted papers from him for safe custody.
  • "That is for me to know, but not for you to ask," shouted Rostopchin.
  • But I did not summon you to discuss my actions, but to give you advice--or an order if you prefer it.
  • I beg you to leave the town and break off all communication with such men as Klyucharev.
  • Well, mon cher, what are you doing personally?
  • Be off as soon as you can, that's all I have to tell you.
  • You will, won't you, dear?
  • You will, won't you, dear?
  • "Then you have nobody in Moscow?" she was saying.
  • You would be more comfortable somewhere in a house... in ours, for instance... the family are leaving.
  • "Which one do you want, Ma'am'selle?" said he, screwing up his eyes and smiling.
  • There now, young lady, you do take things into your head!
  • Are you asleep, Mamma?
  • Will you let them come?
  • I beg you not to indulge in trifles now, but to help to pack, and tomorrow we must go, go, go!...
  • "You can't, Miss, we have tried to," said the butler's assistant.
  • I see you were right, but just take out the top one.
  • Are you staying in my house?
  • You know, love, I wanted to tell you...
  • You know, I think, my dear... let them be taken... where's the hurry?
  • You said yourself that we have a hundred thousand rubles' worth of things in the house.
  • Do as you please!
  • If you have no pity on me, have some for the children.
  • "Papa, what are you doing that for?" asked Natasha, who had followed him into her mother's room.
  • But in general I can tell you, Papa, that such a heroic spirit, the truly antique valor of the Russian army, which they--which it" (he corrected himself) "has shown or displayed in the battle of the twenty-sixth-- there are no words worthy to do it justice!
  • 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.
  • Yes, Mamma, I tell you sincerely that these are hard and sad times for every Russian.
  • But why are you so anxious?
  • You have still time to get away....
  • "And I have a great favor to ask of you, Papa," said he.
  • I went in out of curiosity, you know, and there is a small chiffonier and a dressing table.
  • You know how dear Vera wanted a chiffonier like that and how we had a dispute about it.
  • It pulls out and has a secret English drawer, you know!
  • I wish to give her a surprise, you see.
  • Do you know what it's about?
  • You can't possibly have ordered it!
  • What do you want?
  • Oh, do as you like!
  • My dear, you order what is right....
  • You know I don't understand about it, said she, dropping her eyes shamefacedly.
  • You'll sit on the box, won't you, Petya? cried Natasha.
  • "Why, didn't you know, Miss?" replied the maid.
  • You say he is dying?
  • Don't you know I can't sit like that?
  • How can you talk such nonsense?
  • What are you doing?
  • Why are you like this?
  • Are you remaining in Moscow, then?
  • You were at the battle, we heard.
  • But what is the matter with you, Count?
  • You are not like yourself....
  • Makar Alexeevich, the brother of my late master--may the kingdom of heaven be his--has remained here, but he is in a weak state as you know, said the old servant.
  • Will you step into the study?
  • As it was sealed up so it has remained, but Sophia Danilovna gave orders that if anyone should come from you they were to have the books.
  • "Look here," he added, taking Gerasim by a button of his coat and looking down at the old man with moist, shining, and ecstatic eyes, "I say, do you know that there is going to be a battle tomorrow?"
  • I beg you not to tell anyone who I am, and to do what I ask you.
  • Will you have something to eat?
  • Where are you off to?...
  • "But how are you going to stop them?" replied another officer.
  • We won't grudge trifles, you are welcome to anything--we shall be delighted!
  • If you please, could not guards be placed if only to let us close the shop....
  • Take what any of you like!
  • "It's all very well for you, Ivan Sidorych, to talk," said the first tradesman angrily.
  • Just you wait a bit!
  • "I'll give you something gently, you monkey you!" cried Mavra Kuzminichna, raising her arm threateningly.
  • Who do you want?
  • "What did you want to see the count for?" she asked.
  • Christ be with you, sir!
  • "Haven't you robbed people enough--taking their last shirts?" said a voice addressing the publican.
  • What have you killed a man for, you thief?
  • "I daresay you would like to bind me!" shouted the publican, pushing away the men advancing on him, and snatching his cap from his head he flung it on the ground.
  • You think I won't get to him?
  • And what did you think?
  • They told you that for fun, and you believed it!
  • We too will take part..." the reader went on, and then paused ("Do you see," shouted the youth victoriously, "he's going to clear up the whole affair for you...."), "in destroying them, and will send these visitors to the devil.
  • "The count has not left, he is here, and an order will be issued concerning you," said the superintendent of police.
  • Now why are you asking silly questions about the Fire Brigade?
  • Do you expect me to give you two battalions--which we have not got--for a convoy?
  • I don't need you to tell me what to do! exclaimed Rostopchin angrily.
  • Thank you for coming.
  • I'll come out to you in a moment, but we must first settle with the villain.
  • And you said the French...
  • He'll show you what law is! the mob were saying as if reproving one another for their lack of confidence.
  • Deal with him as you think fit!
  • Where are you going?...
  • Pull up, I tell you! he cried in a piercing voice, and again shouted something breathlessly with emphatic intonations and gestures.
  • When, having bought the coat merely with the object of taking part among the people in the defense of Moscow, Pierre had met the Rostovs and Natasha had said to him: Are you remaining in Moscow?...
  • No, you shan't get it, he yelled.
  • * "Are you the master here?"
  • "Master, not here--don't understand... me, you..." said Gerasim, trying to render his words more comprehensible by contorting them.
  • "You are not wounded?" he asked.
  • You shall pay for this, said the Frenchman, letting go of him.
  • You have saved my life.
  • You are French, said he.
  • You shall tell me all about that presently.
  • You have saved my life!
  • You ask his pardon?
  • "You will be called in when you are wanted," he said.
  • "You will be called in when you are wanted," he said.
  • I owe my life to you and offer you my friendship.
  • I offer you my friendship.
  • Will you now be so good as to tell me with whom I have the honor of conversing so pleasantly, instead of being in the ambulance with that maniac's bullet in my body?
  • You are an officer... a superior officer perhaps.
  • You have borne arms against us.
  • I owe you my life.
  • You belong to the gentry? he concluded with a shade of inquiry in his tone.
  • Your baptismal name, if you please.
  • Monsieur Pierre, you say....
  • Yes, my dear Monsieur Pierre, I owe you a fine votive candle for saving me from that maniac....
  • You see, I have bullets enough in my body already.
  • Here is one I got at Wagram" (he touched his side) "and a second at Smolensk"--he showed a scar on his cheek--"and this leg which as you see does not want to march, I got that on the seventh at the great battle of la Moskowa.
  • It was a tough job you set us there, my word!
  • You may be proud of it!
  • You are certainly brave foes.
  • And you made us pay dear for it.
  • So you are one of us soldiers! he added, smiling, after a momentary pause.
  • Well, if you hadn't told me you were Russian, I should have wagered that you were Parisian!
  • You can tell a Parisian two leagues off.
  • You have been to Paris and have remained Russian.
  • Well, I don't esteem you the less for it.
  • It is I, Ramballe, who tell you so....
  • I assure you I was his enemy eight years ago.
  • When I understood what he wanted--when I saw that he was preparing a bed of laurels for us, you know, I said to myself: 'That is a monarch,' and I devoted myself to him!
  • By the way, you know German, then?
  • "How do you say it?" the captain asked quickly and doubtfully.
  • No, really, have you anything against me? he asked Pierre.
  • "Thank you," said Pierre.
  • I must tell you, mon cher," he continued in the sad and measured tones of a man who intends to tell a long story, "that our name is one of the most ancient in France."
  • What are you staring at, you good-for-nothing?...
  • But what do you think, Daniel Terentich?
  • You can even see the crows flying.
  • You can see it from the window, she said to her cousin, evidently wishing to distract her mind.
  • But you didn't see it!
  • You are trembling all over.
  • Sonya, are you asleep?
  • "What trouble would it be to you?" he said.
  • "You fellows have no conscience," said he to the valet who was pouring water over his hands.
  • It's such pain, you know, that I wonder how he can bear it.
  • It is possible to love someone dear to you with human love, but an enemy can only be loved by divine love.
  • "I love you," said Prince Andrew.
  • "I love you more, better than before," said Prince Andrew, lifting her face with his hand so as to look into her eyes.
  • You have no heart, you don't feel for your own child!
  • You have no heart, you don't feel for your own child!
  • * "You can't pass!"
  • Haven't you seen a child? cried Pierre.
  • After all, one must be human, you know....
  • "Hurry up, you others!" he called out to his comrades.
  • We must be human, we are all mortal you know! and the Frenchman with the spot on his cheek ran back to his comrades.
  • Have you lost anyone, my dear fellow?
  • Do you know her?
  • All right, you can tell all about it at the court-martial.
  • Do you speak French?
  • "Do you speak French?" the officer asked again, keeping at a distance from Pierre.
  • "Who are you?" asked the interpreter in poor Russian.
  • You must answer the chief.
  • I will not tell you who I am.
  • "Where are they taking you to, you poor dear?" said she.
  • "You are speaking of the poor countess?" said Anna Pavlovna, coming up just then.
  • You can yourself imagine the effect this news has had on me, and your silence increases my astonishment.
  • Have you brought me sad news, Colonel?
  • Did you not notice discouragement?...
  • "Sire, will you allow me to speak frankly as befits a loyal soldier?" he asked to gain time.
  • You set me at ease, Colonel.
  • Colonel Michaud, do not forget what I say to you here, perhaps we may recall it with pleasure someday...
  • You are Count Ilya Rostov's son?
  • "Anna Ignatyevna wants to see you, Nicholas," said she, pronouncing the name so that Nicholas at once understood that Anna Ignatyevna was a very important person.
  • You know you let me call you so?
  • You know you let me call you so?
  • She has heard from her niece how you rescued her...
  • Oh, what a fellow you are!
  • "Do you know, dear boy," began the governor's wife with a serious expression on her kind little face, "that really would be the match for you: would you like me to arrange it?"
  • "Whom do you mean, Aunt?" asked Nicholas.
  • I will make a match for you with the princess.
  • Do you want me to do it?
  • But, my dear boy, among other things you are too attentive to the other, the blonde.
  • You see, Aunt, Mamma has long wanted me to marry an heiress, but the very idea of marrying for money is repugnant to me.
  • I will tell you the truth.
  • You know Sonya, my cousin?
  • So you see there can be no question about- said Nicholas incoherently and blushing.
  • You know Sonya has nothing and you yourself say your Papa's affairs are in a very bad way.
  • You know Sonya has nothing and you yourself say your Papa's affairs are in a very bad way.
  • Your mother in despair, and you all ruined....
  • No, my dear, you and Sonya ought to understand that.
  • But you don't suppose I'm going to get you married at once?
  • "What a matchmaker you are, Aunt..." said Nicholas, kissing her plump little hand.
  • "You have met him, Aunt?" said she in a calm voice, unable herself to understand that she could be outwardly so calm and natural.
  • "Have you seen the princess?" she asked, indicating with a movement of her head a lady standing on the opposite side, beyond the choir.
  • "There is one thing I wanted to tell you, Princess," said Rostov.
  • Why do you come in without being called? cried Nicholas, quickly changing his attitude.
  • I shall not be at peace till you promise me this.
  • Natasha, what are you about?
  • "You remember," said Sonya with a solemn and frightened expression.
  • You remember when I looked in the mirror for you... at Otradnoe at Christmas?
  • You remember when I looked in the mirror for you... at Otradnoe at Christmas?
  • Do you remember what I saw?
  • I saw it then and told everybody, you and Dunyasha.
  • "Sonya!" said the countess, raising her eyes from her letter as her niece passed, "Sonya, won't you write to Nicholas?"
  • You cannot know me, General, I have never seen you...
  • No, monseigneur, you cannot have known me.
  • What proof have I that you are not lying?
  • "How can you show me that you are telling the truth?" said Davout coldly.
  • "You are not what you say," returned Davout.
  • "You are not what you say," returned Davout.
  • So you've come, you rascal?
  • You should do like this.
  • And how did they arrest you, dear lad?
  • Why, are you a soldier then?
  • And do you feel sad here?
  • What did you say? asked Pierre.
  • Well, and you, have you a family estate, sir?
  • "Well, and have you little ones?" he went on asking.
  • But he, my younger brother, had five little ones, while I, you see, only left a wife behind.
  • I come home on leave and I'll tell you how it was, I look and see that they are living better than before.
  • 'Michael,' he says, 'come here and bow down to his feet; and you, young woman, you bow down too; and you, grandchildren, also bow down before him!
  • Do you understand?' he says.
  • Our luck is like water in a dragnet: you pull at it and it bulges, but when you've drawn it out it's empty!
  • "Well, I think you must be sleepy," said he, and began rapidly crossing himself and repeating:
  • "What prayer was that you were saying?" asked Pierre.
  • But what was that you said: Frola and Lavra?
  • Now you've curled up and got warm, you daughter of a bitch! said Karataev, touching the dog that lay at his feet, and again turning over he fell asleep immediately.
  • I love you and have known you a long time.
  • "This is my niece," said the count, introducing Sonya--"You don't know her, Princess?"
  • I think you must be tired, Princess.
  • "You, you... will see," was all Natasha could say.
  • "You, you... will see," was all Natasha could say.
  • I don't know why, but you will see what he is like.
  • And his cold, stern look replied: "Because you are alive and thinking of the living, while I..."
  • How are you, Mary?
  • "And have you brought little Nicholas?" he asked in the same slow, quiet manner and with an obvious effort to remember.
  • "How are you now?" said Princess Mary, herself surprised at what she was saying.
  • * "Thank you for coming, my dear."
  • And so you have met Count Nicholas, Mary?
  • "He wrote here that he took a great liking to you," he went on simply and calmly, evidently unable to understand all the complex significance his words had for living people.
  • Andrew, would you like...
  • Princess Mary suddenly said in a trembling voice, would you like to see little Nicholas?
  • "Mary, you know the Gosp..." but he broke off.
  • What did you say?
  • "Nothing. You mustn't cry here," he said, looking at her with the same cold expression.
  • You are not asleep?
  • I felt you come in.
  • No one else gives me that sense of soft tranquillity that you do... that light.
  • Natasha, I love you too much!
  • Well, what do you, what do you feel in your soul, your whole soul--shall I live?
  • What do you think?
  • "But you have not slept," she said, repressing her joy.
  • I beg your Highness to credit what he says to you, especially when he expresses the sentiment of esteem and special regard I have long entertained for your person.
  • This letter having no other object, I pray God, monsieur le Prince Koutouzov, to keep you in His holy and gracious protection!
  • In view of all this information, when the enemy has scattered his forces in large detachments, and with Napoleon and his Guards in Moscow, is it possible that the enemy's forces confronting you are so considerable as not to allow of your taking the offensive?
  • On the contrary, he is probably pursuing you with detachments, or at most with an army corps much weaker than the army entrusted to you.
  • Remember that you have still to answer to our offended country for the loss of Moscow.
  • You have experienced my readiness to reward you.
  • That readiness will not weaken in me, but I and Russia have a right to expect from you all the zeal, firmness, and success which your intellect, military talent, and the courage of the troops you command justify us in expecting.
  • If I did not know you I should think you did not want what you are asking for.
  • "You think he went off just by chance?" said a comrade, who was on the staff that evening, to the officer of the Horse Guards, referring to Ermolov.
  • I'll have you shot!
  • Really... what do you think?
  • Will you have them fetched back?
  • "The word attack is always on your tongue, but you don't see that we are unable to execute complicated maneuvers," said he to Miloradovich who asked permission to advance.
  • Terrible examples have taught you how he punishes disobedience and crime.
  • It will take care of you, of your needs, and of your welfare.
  • You will recognize them by the white ribbon they will wear on the left arm.
  • You, peaceful inhabitants of Moscow, artisans and workmen whom misfortune has driven from the city, and you scattered tillers of the soil, still kept out in the fields by groundless fear, listen!
  • You, peaceful inhabitants of Moscow, artisans and workmen whom misfortune has driven from the city, and you scattered tillers of the soil, still kept out in the fields by groundless fear, listen!
  • He desires to end your misfortunes and restore you to your homes and families.
  • You will soon find means of satisfying your needs.
  • You shall receive proper pay for your work.
  • 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!
  • Besides, Monsieur Kiril, you have only to say a word to the captain, you know.
  • When one has studied, you see, one likes education and well-bred people.'
  • The other day if it had not been for you that affair would have ended ill.
  • "You see, dear man, this is not a sewing shop, and I had no proper tools; and, as they say, one needs a tool even to kill a louse," said Platon with one of his round smiles, obviously pleased with his work.
  • "It's good, quite good, thank you," said the Frenchman, in French, "but there must be some linen left over."
  • You know, Sokolov, they are not all going away!
  • You may be better off than we others, said Pierre.
  • "What are you disputing about?" said the major angrily.
  • You see it's burned down, and there's an end of it....
  • What are you pushing for?
  • Yes, I told you--the whole quarter beyond the river, and so it is.
  • "Well, you know it's burned, so what's the use of talking?" said the major.
  • Yes, I dare say, that's the way they'll let you pass...
  • You should wake the captain first.
  • You damned rascal, where do you always hide it? said the voice of the man who was stretching himself, to the orderly.
  • You damned rascal, where do you always hide it? said the voice of the man who was stretching himself, to the orderly.
  • Did you get here quickly?
  • What news have you brought me?
  • "Well, I am glad to see you," Denisov interrupted him, and his face again assumed its anxious expression.
  • "Michael Feoklitych," said he to the esaul, "this is again fwom that German, you know.
  • But can you stay till tomowwow?
  • May I stay with you? cried Petya.
  • We only fooled about with the lads for fun, you know!
  • Gave you a twist? the Cossacks would banter him.
  • "Well, where did you disappear to?" inquired Denisov.
  • Why did you push yourself in there by daylight?
  • Well, why haven't you taken one?
  • "You see, I took him first thing at dawn," Tikhon continued, spreading out his flat feet with outturned toes in their bast shoes.
  • Why didn't you bwing that one?
  • As if I don't know what sort you want!
  • What a bwute you are!...
  • So I went for them with my ax, this way: 'What are you up to?' says I.
  • 'Christ be with you!' shouted Tikhon, waving his arms with an angry scowl and throwing out his chest.
  • "Yes, we saw from the hill how you took to your heels through the puddles!" said the esaul, screwing up his glittering eyes.
  • Why didn't you bwing the first one?
  • "You are a bwute!" said Denisov.
  • "I'll give you a hundwed sharp lashes--that'll teach you to play the fool!" said Denisov severely.
  • "But why are you angry?" remonstrated Tikhon, "just as if I'd never seen your Frenchmen!
  • Only wait till it gets dark and I'll fetch you any of them you want--three if you like.
  • "So then what do you think, Vasili Dmitrich?" said he to Denisov.
  • Oh, you want a knife? he said, turning to an officer who wished to cut himself a piece of mutton.
  • I have some raisins, fine ones; you know, seedless ones.
  • Would you like some?... and Petya ran out into the passage to his Cossack and brought back some bags which contained about five pounds of raisins.
  • "You want a coffeepot, don't you?" he asked the esaul.
  • "You want a coffeepot, don't you?" he asked the esaul.
  • Or perhaps your flints are giving out, or are worn out--that happens sometimes, you know.
  • Please take as many as you want, or all if you like....
  • Let me kiss you, dear old fellow!
  • Do you want something to eat?
  • * "Thank you, sir."
  • I'll go with you! cried Petya.
  • "There's no need for you to go at all," said Denisov, addressing Dolokhov, "and as for him, I won't let him go on any account."
  • Well, you must excuse me, because... because...
  • You'll take me, won't you? he said, turning to Dolokhov.
  • "Have you had that youngster with you long?" he asked Denisov.
  • "Yes, and where do you put the others?" inquired Dolokhov.
  • I only say that I'll certainly go with you, said Petya shyly.
  • "But for you and me, old fellow, it's time to drop these amenities," continued Dolokhov, as if he found particular pleasure in speaking of this subject which irritated Denisov.
  • "Now, why have you kept this lad?" he went on, swaying his head.
  • Because you are sorry for him!
  • You send a hundred men away, and thirty get there.
  • You say they'll die.
  • Well, are you coming with me? he asked Petya.
  • I am asking you if the colonel is here.
  • "Is that you, Clement?" he asked.
  • "If you were counting on the evening soup, you have come too late," said a voice from behind the fire with a repressed laugh.
  • "Do you hear?" he asked.
  • "Really!" he cried, "you are such a hero!
  • But, devil take you, I haven't slept because of you!
  • Do you know I have only just come back!
  • "Well, you should get some sleep now," said the Cossack.
  • Don't you want any?
  • You can have some.
  • Please, my dear fellow, will you sharpen my saber for me?
  • Can you do it?
  • "What are you sharpening?" asked a man coming up to the wagon.
  • It's ready, your honor; you can split a Frenchman in half with it!
  • "I ask one thing of you," he said sternly, "to obey me and not shove yourself forward anywhere."
  • "Well, how are you?" he asked.
  • So they asked the old man: 'What are you being punished for, Daddy?'--'I, my dear brothers,' said he, 'am being punished for my own and other men's sins.
  • And the old man said, 'God will forgive you, we are all sinners in His sight.
  • Well, and what do you think, dear friends?
  • Do you understand, my child? said the teacher.
  • "Do you understand, damn you?" shouted a voice, and Pierre woke up.
  • You will get well-- quite well.
  • She stopped him and said: Terrible for you, but not for me!
  • You know that for me there is nothing in life but you, and to suffer with you is the greatest happiness for me, and he took her hand and pressed it as he had pressed it that terrible evening four days before his death.
  • You know that for me there is nothing in life but you, and to suffer with you is the greatest happiness for me, and he took her hand and pressed it as he had pressed it that terrible evening four days before his death.
  • Go away, all of you; it's not true!
  • "Natasha, you love me?" she said in a soft trustful whisper.
  • Natasha, you would not deceive me?
  • How glad I am you have come.
  • Won't you have some tea?
  • "You have improved in looks and grown more manly," continued the countess, taking her daughter's hand.
  • What are you saying...
  • You are tired--try to sleep.
  • Why did you bring me away?
  • "Mary," she said timidly, drawing Princess Mary's hand to herself, "Mary, you mustn't think me wicked.
  • "I give you that column, lads," he said, riding up to the troops and pointing out the French to the cavalry.
  • "What were you saying?" he asked the general, who continuing his report directed the commander-in-chief's attention to some standards captured from the French and standing in front of the Preobrazhensk regiment.
  • "I thank you all!" he said, addressing the soldiers and then again the officers.
  • I thank you all for your hard and faithful service.
  • Honor to you forever.
  • "You see, brothers..." said he when the shouts had ceased... and all at once his voice and the expression of his face changed.
  • You see, brothers, I know it's hard for you, but it can't be helped!
  • You see, brothers, I know it's hard for you, but it can't be helped!
  • It is hard for you, but still you are at home while they--you see what they have come to, said he, pointing to the prisoners.
  • Where are you shoving to?
  • Here, you of the Sixth Company!
  • Devils that you are!
  • You may want us one of these days.
  • What are you stopping for?
  • "What are you up to?" suddenly came the authoritative voice of a sergeant major who came upon the men who were hauling their burden.
  • "There are gentry here; the general himself is in that hut, and you foul-mouthed devils, you brutes, I'll give it to you!" shouted he, hitting the first man who came in his way a swinging blow on the back.
  • Can't you make less noise?
  • "Don't you like it?" said a laughing voice, and moderating their tones the men moved forward.
  • What has become of you, you son of a bitch?
  • Are you lost or have the wolves eaten you?
  • "And you, Jackdaw, go and fetch some wood!" said he to another soldier.
  • What a fellow you are for dancing!
  • "Well, you know," said the sharp-nosed man they called Jackdaw in a squeaky and unsteady voice, raising himself at the other side of the fire, "a plump man gets thin, but for a thin one it's death.
  • "What a lot of those Frenchies were taken today, and the fact is that not one of them had what you might call real boots on," said a soldier, starting a new theme.
  • As they turned them over one seemed still alive and, would you believe it, he jabbered something in their lingo.
  • "But they're a clean folk, lads," the first man went on; "he was white-- as white as birchbark--and some of them are such fine fellows, you might think they were nobles."
  • Well, what do you think?
  • And do you know, Daddy, the day before yesterday we ran at them and, my word, they didn't let us get near before they just threw down their muskets and went on their knees.
  • You would think the women had spread out their linen, said one of the men, gazing with admiration at the Milky Way.
  • You warm your back and your belly gets frozen.
  • What are you pushing for?
  • "You won't do it again, eh?" said one of the soldiers, winking and turning mockingly to Ramballe.
  • Why talk rubbish, lout that you are--a real peasant! came rebukes from all sides addressed to the jesting soldier.
  • Oh, you fine fellows, my kind, kind friends!
  • Do you want some more to eat?
  • When on the following morning the Emperor said to the officers assembled about him: "You have not only saved Russia, you have saved Europe!" they all understood that the war was not ended.
  • When on the following morning the Emperor said to the officers assembled about him: "You have not only saved Russia, you have saved Europe!" they all understood that the war was not ended.
  • "Well, tell me... now, how did you get food?" he would ask.
  • "If all Russians are in the least like you, it is sacrilege to fight such a nation," he said to Pierre.
  • You, who have suffered so from the French, do not even feel animosity toward them.
  • "You are letting yourself go, my dear fellow," he said.
  • He spoke of you even at the very last, she went on, turning her eyes from Pierre to her companion with a shyness that surprised him for an instant.
  • Do you really not recognize her?
  • You know it happened the very day we were rescued.
  • "How can you ask why?" said Princess Mary.
  • What a happy thing that he saw you again, he added, suddenly turning to Natasha and looking at her with eyes full of tears.
  • "Do you take vodka, Count?" asked Princess Mary, and those words suddenly banished the shadows of the past.
  • And are you building?
  • "Tell me, you did not know of the countess' death when you decided to remain in Moscow?" asked Princess Mary and immediately blushed, noticing that her question, following his mention of freedom, ascribed to his words a meaning he had perhaps not intended.
  • I heard of it in Orel and you cannot imagine how it shocked me.
  • "And did you really see and speak to Napoleon, as we have been told?" said Princess Mary.
  • But it's true that you remained in Moscow to kill Napoleon?
  • I guessed it then when we met at the Sukharev tower, do you remember?
  • No, you can't understand what I learned from that illiterate man--that simple fellow.
  • "People speak of misfortunes and sufferings," remarked Pierre, "but if at this moment I were asked: 'Would you rather be what you were before you were taken prisoner, or go through all this again?' then for heaven's sake let me again have captivity and horseflesh!
  • I say this to you, he added, turning to Natasha.
  • I am not to blame for being alive and wishing to live--nor you either.
  • Do you know, Mary...
  • Well, Savelich, do you still not wish to accept your freedom?
  • We lived under the late count--the kingdom of heaven be his!--and we have lived under you too, without ever being wronged.
  • Are you starting tomorrow? asked Savelich.
  • I'll tell you later.
  • "Do you know her?" asked Pierre.
  • No; I mean do you know Natasha Rostova?
  • "So you are going to Petersburg tomorrow?" she asked.
  • I will call round in case you have any commissions for me, said he, standing before Princess Mary and turning red, but not taking his departure.
  • "Yes, I wanted to tell you," said he, answering her look as if she had spoken.
  • "I am thinking of what you have told me," answered Princess Mary.
  • You are right that to speak to her of love at present...
  • "I know that she loves... will love you," Princess Mary corrected herself.
  • What makes you think so?
  • You think I may hope?
  • And I will write to you, she said.
  • I wanted to listen at the door, but I knew you would tell me.
  • Whatever you tell me, I will do.
  • Then why are you crying?
  • Think what fun it will be when I am his wife and you marry Nicholas!
  • Natasha, I have asked you not to speak of that.
  • See what you believed in!
  • Do you now see that it was not he but I who moved you?
  • You don't meet such men nowadays....
  • "Oh, Nicholas, how can you talk like that?" cried Sonya, hardly able to conceal her delight.
  • "She is a very admirable and excellent young woman," said she, "and you must go and call on her.
  • You would at least be seeing somebody, and I think it must be dull for you only seeing us.
  • You would at least be seeing somebody, and I think it must be dull for you only seeing us.
  • You used to want to, and now you don't.
  • You used to want to, and now you don't.
  • Really I don't understand you, my dear.
  • One day you are dull, and the next you refuse to see anyone.
  • Why, you said yourself you don't want even to see her.
  • She is a very admirable young woman and you always liked her, but now suddenly you have got some notion or other in your head.
  • You hide everything from me.
  • Well, I have asked you, and now I won't interfere any more since you have secrets from your mother.
  • Well, then, I'll go if you wish it.
  • Are you going already, Count?
  • "Yes, yes," said she, "but you have no reason to regret the past, Count.
  • As I understand your present life, I think you will always recall it with satisfaction, because the self-sacrifice that fills it now...
  • "I thought you would allow me to tell you this," she said.
  • "I had come so near to you... and to all your family that I thought you would not consider my sympathy misplaced, but I was mistaken," and suddenly her voice trembled.
  • "I don't know why," she continued, recovering herself, "but you used to be different, and..."
  • "Thank you, Princess," he added softly.
  • You must tell me!
  • For some reason you wish to deprive me of our former friendship.
  • But what is the matter with you, Mary? he suddenly asked.
  • "Mary," he said softly, going up to her, "it will never happen again; I give you my word.
  • "Nicholas, when did you break your cameo?" she asked to change the subject, looking at his finger on which he wore a ring with a cameo of Laocoon's head.
  • "I give you my word of honor it shan't occur again, and let this always be a reminder to me," and he pointed to the broken ring.
  • "Mary, you must despise me!" he would say.
  • "You should go, go away at once, if you don't feel strong enough to control yourself," she would reply sadly, trying to comfort her husband.
  • "You should go, go away at once, if you don't feel strong enough to control yourself," she would reply sadly, trying to comfort her husband.
  • "You know," said Natasha, "you have read the Gospels a great deal--there is a passage in them that just fits Sonya."
  • "You know," said Natasha, "you have read the Gospels a great deal--there is a passage in them that just fits Sonya."
  • She is a sterile flower, you know--like some strawberry blossoms.
  • You always have such strange fancies!
  • Why did you bring him here?
  • You have no idea how unhappy, how lonely, I feel when you are like that.
  • You have no idea how unhappy, how lonely, I feel when you are like that.
  • Oh, how absurd you are!
  • Without you, or when something comes between us like this, I seem lost and can't do anything.
  • "You can see the woman in her already," she said in French, pointing to little Natasha.
  • You reproach us women with being illogical.
  • But you know you may be unfair.
  • You are too fond of this one, his wife whispered in French.
  • You should have seen her ecstasy, and how he caught it for having stayed away so long.
  • It's time you two were parted, she added, looking smilingly at the little girl who clung to her father.
  • That creature said: You are angry, you are jealous, you would like to pay him out, you are afraid--but here am I!
  • That creature said: You are angry, you are jealous, you would like to pay him out, you are afraid--but here am I!
  • You are pleased, you've had a good time....
  • But you were enjoying yourself.
  • If only you could see what I was like without you, how I suffered!
  • "And have you talked everything well over with Prince Theodore?" she asked.
  • You see, he holds it up.
  • "Now, Nicholas," she added, turning to her husband, "I can't understand how it is you don't see the charm of these delicious marvels."
  • "What do you think of this?" said he, unrolling a piece of stuff like a shopman.
  • "Thank you, my dear, you have cheered me up," said she as she always did.
  • But best of all you have brought yourself back--for I never saw anything like it, you ought to give your wife a scolding!
  • She is like a mad woman when you are away.
  • What are you saying about the government?
  • "You know," he added, stopping at the door, "why I'm especially fond of that music?
  • "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!
  • "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!
  • "When you are here he can't tear himself away," she said.
  • I will bring him to you directly, Monsieur Dessalles.
  • You and I haven't seen anything of one another yet...
  • "Well, what would you do?" asked Denisov.
  • "Well, you know whom," said Pierre, with a meaning glance from under his brows.
  • Why are you here?
  • No independent men, such as you or I, are left.
  • And what position will you adopt toward the government?
  • It is not at all what you suppose; but that is what the German Tugendbund was, and what I am proposing.
  • "I will tell you this," he said, rising and trying with nervously twitching fingers to prop up his pipe in a corner, but finally abandoning the attempt.
  • You say that everything here is rotten and that an overthrow is coming: I don't see it.
  • But you also say that our oath of allegiance is a conditional matter, and to that I reply: 'You are my best friend, as you know, but if you formed a secret society and began working against the government- -be it what it may--I know it is my duty to obey the government.
  • And you may argue about that as you like!
  • Uncle Pierre, you... no...
  • If Papa were alive... would he agree with you? he asked.
  • What are you writing, Mary?
  • You weren't in the study.
  • Have you any idea why he went to Petersburg?
  • I am sorry you weren't there.
  • A pity you were not there--what would you have said?
  • As I see it you were quite right, and I told Natasha so.
  • Well, I don't think you need reproach yourself on his account.
  • All that the fondest mother could do for her son you have done and are doing for him, and of course I am glad of it.
  • And then there are you and the children and our affairs.
  • No, but I know I must work to comfort my mother, to repay you, and not to leave the children such beggars as I was.
  • "You know, Mary, today Elias Mitrofanych" (this was his overseer) "came back from the Tambov estate and told me they are already offering eighty thousand rubles for the forest."
  • You won't escape!--from that moment this conversation began, contrary to all the laws of logic and contrary to them because quite different subjects were talked about at one and the same time.
  • But I understand that you value what opens up a fresh line, said she, repeating words Pierre had once uttered.
  • "You know how much I..." he began to soften down what he had said; but Natasha interrupted him to show that this was unnecessary.
  • So you say ideas are an amusement to him....
  • "Ah, I'm so sorry I wasn't there when you met the children," said Natasha.
  • 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.
  • You see, I don't say that we ought to oppose this and that.
  • What I say is: 'Join hands, you who love the right, and let there be but one banner--that of active virtue.'
  • "Do you know what I am thinking about?" she asked.
  • Would he have approved of you now, do you think?
  • I love you awfully!
  • If only you did not go away!
  • Do you remember how we quarreled?
  • "Did you see her?" she added, after a pause.
  • Oh, do you know?
  • While you were talking in the study I was looking at you, Natasha began, evidently anxious to disperse the cloud that had come over them.
  • You are as like him as two peas--like the boy.
  • No. What did you say?
  • "No, you go on, I was talking nonsense," said Natasha.
  • And what were you going to say?
  • I only wanted to tell you about Petya: today nurse was coming to take him from me, and he laughed, shut his eyes, and clung to me.
  • "Have you done this?" he said, pointing to some broken sealing wax and pens.
  • I loved you, but I have orders from Arakcheev and will kill the first of you who moves forward.
  • "Are you ill?" he heard Dessalles' voice asking.
  • Modern history replying to these questions says: you want to know what this movement means, what caused it, and what force produced these events?
  • Undoubtedly some relation exists between all who live contemporaneously, and so it is possible to find some connection between the intellectual activity of men and their historical movements, just as such a connection may be found between the movements of humanity and commerce, handicraft, gardening, or anything else you please.
