BOOK NINE: 1812,¡¡¡¡From scruples, the mother proceeded to uneasiness:,¡¡¡¡He was in the court-room.,¡¡¡¡With the enemy's approach to Moscow, the Moscovites' view of their situation did not grow more serious but on the contrary became even more frivolous, as always happens with people who see a great danger approaching. At the approach of danger there are always two voices that speak with equal power in the human soul: one very reasonably tells a man to consider the nature of the danger and the means of escaping it; the other, still more reasonably, says that it is too depressing and painful to think of the danger, since it is not in man's power to foresee everything and avert the general course of events, and it is therefore better to disregard what is painful till it comes, and to think about what is pleasant. In solitude a man generally listens to the first voice, but in society to the second. So it was now with the inhabitants of Moscow. It was long since people had been as gay in Moscow as that year.,,¡¡¡¡"Follow me!" of that child threatened, of his friends to succor or to avenge, all hesitation had vanished, and he had flung himself into the conflict, his two pistols in hand. With his first shot he had saved Gavroche, and with the second delivered Courfeyrac.!¡¡¡¡Was it a man?,BOOK SIX: 1808 - 10, .

What did he say?" was heard in the ranks of the Polish Uhlans when one of the aides-de-camp rode up to them..,¡¡¡¡The old count, knowing his son's ardor in the hunt, hurried so as not to be late, and the hunstmen had not yet reached their places when Count Ilya Rostov, cheerful, flushed, and with quivering cheeks, drove up with his black horses over the winter rye to the place reserved for him, where a wolf might come out. Having straightened his coat and fastened on his hunting knives and horn, he mounted his good, sleek, well-fed, and comfortable horse, Viflyanka, which was turning gray, like himself. His horses and trap were sent home. Count Ilya Rostov, though not at heart a keen sportsman, knew the rules of the hunt well, and rode to the bushy edge of the road where he was to stand, arranged his reins, settled himself in the saddle, and, feeling that he was ready, looked about with a smile.,¡¡¡¡It was at the most intense point of this preoccupation that Enjolras accosted him.,¡¡¡¡Anatole glanced round at his sister and rose submissively, ready to follow Pierre. Pierre, taking him by the arm, pulled him toward himself and was leading him from the room.!
¡¡¡¡"Come, come, Natasha!" said the count, as he turned back for his daughter. "How beautiful she is!" Natasha without saying anything stepped up to her father and looked at him with surprised inquiring eyes....? Leo Tolstoy.? Leo Tolstoy,¡¡¡¡Cosette laid her head on the shoulder of the good man and said not a word.,¡¡¡¡She had not slept well, that was all, her eyes were sunken and she was pale.!¡¡¡¡She made a sign of satisfaction and contentment.;
¡¡¡¡He was right; the plan of battle conceived by him was, as we have seen, really admirable.,¡¡¡¡On August 24 Davydov's first partisan detachment was formed and then others were recognized. The further the campaign progressed the more numerous these detachments became.,¡¡¡¡He had, or thought that he had, a connivance, one might almost say a complicity, of events in his favor, which was equivalent to the invulnerability of antiquity.,¡¡¡¡Natasha smiled bashfully..,¡¡¡¡During the movement of the Russian army from Tarutino to Krasnoe it lost fifty thousand sick or stragglers, that is a number equal to the population of a large provincial town. Half the men fell out of the army without a battle..¡¡¡¡The Emperor straightened himself up and fell to thinking..
¡¡¡¡Above the door it said, "Number 50"; the inside replied, "no, Number 52.",¡¡¡¡"But can this be compared...?" said Pierre.,¡¡¡¡At the moment when Cosette emerged, bucket in hand, melancholy and overcome as she was, she could not refrain from lifting her eyes to that wonderful doll, towards the lady, as she called it. The poor child paused in amazement.,;¡¡¡¡The tears flowed faster still from the countess' eyes. She took his hand and kissed it.,¡¡¡¡And that dear portrait of the divine Shakespeare which we sold one evening that we might sup!,,...

Quicker, quicker- and that they should leave me in peace!" ,¡¡¡¡They caused that revolution, at first so remarkable for its unanimity, to degenerate into a quarrel. In the Revolution of July, as in all progress accomplished by fits and starts, there had been secret fractures; these riots rendered them perceptible.,¡¡¡¡We repeat it,-- to use that word, to do thus, to invent such an expression, is to be the conqueror!.¡¡¡¡When this legion had been reduced to a handful, when nothing was left of their flag but a rag, when their guns, the bullets all gone, were no longer anything but clubs, when the heap of corpses was larger than the group of survivors, there reigned among the conquerors, around those men dying so sublimely, a sort of sacred terror, and the English artillery, taking breath, became silent.,,!Whereby you may see, that the river of Lethe runneth as well above ground, as below. There is an abstruse astrologer that saith; If it were not for two things, that are constant (the one is, that (he fixed stars ever stand at like distance, one from another, and never come nearer together, nor go further asunder, the other, that the diurnal motion perpetually keepeth time); no individual would last one moment ,¡¡¡¡The Russians did not seek out the best position but, on the contrary, during the retreat passed many positions better than Borodino. They did not stop at any one of these positions because Kutuzov did not wish to occupy a position he had not himself chosen, because the popular demand for a battle had not yet expressed itself strongly enough, and because Miloradovich had not yet arrived with the militia, and for many other reasons. The fact is that other positions they had passed were stronger, and that the position at Borodino (the one where the battle was fought), far from being strong, was no more a position than any other spot one might find in the Russian Empire by sticking a pin into the map at hazard.!
¡¡¡¡ In addition to the philological origins just indicated, slang possesses other and still more natural roots, which spring, so to speak, from the mind of man itself.,, ,¡®He¡ªhe sent me on purpose?¡¯,¡¡¡¡While he was discussing this modest dinner, he had, twice or thrice, noticed in a confused way, Toussaint's stammering words as she said to him:,¡¡¡¡". . .

¡¡¡¡He recognized the voice of the eldest daughter.,¡¡¡¡And he tore the charge from the nail.,¡¡¡¡Then the ex-convict smiled with the pensive smile of the angels.,¡¡¡¡Natasha did not remember how that day passed nor that night, nor the next day and night. She did not sleep and did not leave her mother. Her persevering and patient love seemed completely to surround the countess every moment, not explaining or consoling, but recalling her to life.,the latter of whom, it is said; iuventutem egit enwibus, imo fwonbus, plenorn. And ,...¡¡¡¡"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."!
on a limited scale.,¡¡¡¡And she laughed....? Leo Tolstoy;¡¡¡¡Denisov, frowning, took the envelope and opened it.,¡¡¡¡Cosette, without troubling herself to understand anything, was inexpressibly happy with that doll and that kind man.,;198 EXT -- PRISON -- NIGHT (1966) 198,CHAPTER XIX ,¡¡¡¡This transformation took place last night. I met the victim this morning in high spirits..
¡¡¡¡Jondrette fumbled in his trousers pocket and handed her five francs....He began to pace up and down before Harry and Wormtail, eyes sweeping the graveyard all the while. After a minute or so, he looked down at Harry again, a cruel smile twisting his snakelike face. ,¡¡¡¡He saw that black form standing out in relief against the white pavement, illuminated by the moon; to advance was to fall into this man's hands; to retreat was to fling himself into Javert's arms.,;¡¡¡¡During the winter Prince Andrew had come to Bald Hills and had been gay, gentle, and more affectionate than Princess Mary had known him for a long time past. She felt that something had happened to him, but he said nothing to her about his love. Before he left he had a long talk with his father about something, and Princess Mary noticed that before his departure they were dissatisfied with one another.,¡¡¡¡One matter connected with his management sometimes worried Nicholas, and that was his quick temper together with his old hussar habit of making free use of his fists. At first he saw nothing reprehensible in this, but in the second year of his marriage his view of that form of punishment suddenly changed.;
Its narrow beam traveled from black trunk to black trunk, illuminating the ground. And then it fell upon a pair of feet. ,¡¡¡¡Let us finish with this man at once.,The cardinals of Rome, which are theologues, and friars, and schoolmen, have a phrase of notable contempt and scorn towards civil business: for they call all temporal business, of wars, embassages, judicature, and other employments, sbarene\', which is, under-sheriffiies; as if they were but matters for under-sheriffs and catohpoles; though many times, those under-sheriffiies do more good than their high speculations. St Paul, when he boasts of himself, he doth oft interlace; I speak like a fool; but speaking of his calling, he saith.,¡¡¡¡Apart from these two concepts which in their union mutually define one another as form and content, no conception of life is possible.,,;¡¡¡¡There was something of the sharpshooter in his genius.,;
¡¡¡¡"Well, all wight," said Denisov.,¡¡¡¡"Yes, of course that's true," said Pierre with a cheerful smile. "I don't need all that at all. By being ruined I have become much richer.",¡¡¡¡Nicholas tried to keep silence when his mother spoke of the princess, but his silence irritated her., , ,...
¡¡¡¡And then there was nothing more for the poor. All had vanished..¡¡¡¡GAVROCHE WOULD HAVE DONE BETTER TO ACCEPT ENJOLRAS' CARBINE,,, ...¡¡¡¡He had not yielded to this sort of first summons; he had just made every possible effort to continue the journey; he had loyally and scrupulously exhausted all means; he had been deterred neither by the season, nor fatigue, nor by the expense; he had nothing with which to reproach himself.,¡¡¡¡She has chromate-of-lead-colored hair, like Titian's mistress, and she is a good girl..,¡¡¡¡But an aged workman had died in the infirmary of the factory a few days before, leaving behind him nothing but his blouse..¡¡¡¡They all went without knowing whither or why they were going. Still less did that genius, Napoleon, know it, for no one issued any orders to him. But still he and those about him retained their old habits: wrote commands, letters, reports, and orders of the day; called one another sire, mon cousin, prince d'Eckmuhl, roi de Naples, and so on. But these orders and reports were only on paper, nothing in them was acted upon for they could not be carried out, and though they entitled one another Majesties, Highnesses, or Cousins, they all felt that they were miserable wretches who had done much evil for which they had now to pay. And though they pretended to be concerned about the army, each was thinking only of himself and of how to get away quickly and save himself. ;
,¡¡¡¡Although no absolute satisfaction is given to philosophy, either to circumscribe the cause or to limit the effect, the contemplator falls into those unfathomable ecstasies caused by these decompositions of force terminating in unity., ,,¡¡¡¡"You malicious, bare-pawed little wretch!",¡¡¡¡All was over, Cosette had fallen back into deep, seraphic love. The abyss of Eden had yawned once more..¡¡¡¡With the exception of this issue which was left free, and which constituted what Folard in his strategical style would have termed a branch and taking into account, also, the narrow cutting arranged on the Rue de la Chanvrerie, the interior of the barricade, where the wine-shop formed a salient angle, presented an irregular square, closed on all sides.,.
¡¡¡¡After Prince Andrews engagement to Natasha, Pierre without any apparent cause suddenly felt it impossible to go on living as before. Firmly convinced as he was of the truths revealed to him by his benefactor, and happy as he had been in perfecting his inner man, to which he had devoted himself with such ardor- all the zest of such a life vanished after the engagement of Andrew and Natasha and the death of Joseph Alexeevich, the news of which reached him almost at the same time. Only the skeleton of life remained: his house, a brilliant wife who now enjoyed the favors of a very important personage, acquaintance with all Petersburg, and his court service with its dull formalities. And this life suddenly seemed to Pierre unexpectedly loathsome. He ceased keeping a diary, avoided the company of the Brothers, began going to the Club again, drank a great deal, and came once more in touch with the bachelor sets, leading such a life that the Countess Helene thought it necessary to speak severely to him about it. Pierre felt that she right, and to avoid compromising her went away to Moscow.,,,¡¡¡¡It was there, that, about 1829, was committed that mysterious assassination, called "The assassination of the Fontainebleau barrier," whose authors justice was never able to discover; a melancholy problem which has never been elucidated, a frightful enigma which has never been unriddled.;¡¡¡¡They had taken up position for this final action, some on the heights of Rossomme, others on the plain of Mont-Saint-Jean.

I put my trust, therefore, in your mother's blood. I delivered you to her sister, her only remaining relative.¡¯...!;,¡¡¡¡Anatole consented and went to Moscow, where he put up at Pierre's house. Pierre received him unwillingly at first, but got used to him after a while, sometimes even accompanied him on his carousals, and gave him money under the guise of loans.,.¡¡¡¡At that moment Nicholas and Countess Mary came in. Pierre with the baby on his hand stooped, kissed them, and replied to their inquiries. But in spite of much that was interesting and had to be discussed, the baby with the little cap on its unsteady head evidently absorbed all his attention..,¡¡¡¡Do you know me?"!

The colonel of the Polish Uhlans, a handsome old man, flushed and, fumbling in his speech from excitement, asked the aide-de-camp whether he would be permitted to swim the river with his Uhlans instead of seeking a ford. In evident fear of refusal, like a boy asking for permission to get on a horse, he begged to be allowed to swim across the river before the Emperor's eyes. The aide-de-camp replied that probably the Emperor would not be displeased at this excess of zeal.,¡¡¡¡They were two really pretty little girls, more bourgeois than peasant in looks, and very charming; the one with shining chestnut tresses, the other with long black braids hanging down her back, both vivacious, neat, plump, rosy, and healthy, and a delight to the eye.,¡¡¡¡He was on the battle-field of Waterloo....¡¡¡¡"Yes, I know," said Countess Mary. "Natasha told me.",¡¡¡¡"Well, adorer and courtier of the Emperor Alexander, why don't you say anything?" said he, as if it was ridiculous, in his presence, to be the adorer and courtier of anyone but himself, Napoleon.

? Leo Tolstoy;¡¡¡¡Pierre wished to say that he was ready to sacrifice his money, his serfs, or himself, only one ought to know the state of affairs in order to be able to improve it, but he was unable to speak. Many voices shouted and talked at the same time, so that Count Rostov had not time to signify his approval of them all, and the group increased, dispersed, re-formed, and then moved with a hum of talk into the largest hall and to the big table. Not only was Pierre's attempt to speak unsuccessful, but he was rudely interrupted, pushed aside, and people turned away from him as from a common enemy. This happened not because they were displeased by the substance of his speech, which had even been forgotten after the many subsequent speeches, but to animate it the crowd needed a tangible object to love and a tangible object to hate. Pierre became the latter. Many other orators spoke after the excited nobleman, and all in the same tone. Many spoke eloquently and with originality.!!¡¡¡¡"When will her mother come? She has worried me to death! Now mind, don't tell her everything!" said she to Pierre. "One hasn't the heart to scold her, she is so much to be pitied, so much to be pitied."!¡¡¡¡Rostov gazed at what was happening before him as at a hunt. He felt instinctively that if the hussars struck at the French dragoons now, the latter could not withstand them, but if a charge was to be made it must be done now, at that very moment, or it would be too late. He looked around.

¡¡¡¡At the beginning of winter Prince Nicholas Bolkonski and his daughter moved to Moscow. At that time enthusiasm for the Emperor Alexander's regime had weakened and a patriotic and anti-French tendency prevailed there, and this, together with his past and his intellect and his originality, at once made Prince Nicholas Bolkonski an object of particular respect to the Moscovites and the center of the Moscow opposition to the government.;,¡¡¡¡"He ought to have acted in this way and in that way.
