ĦĦĦĦSome one, a person to whom one replies not, took the responsibility on himself.,ĦĦĦĦ*"Ah, it's you! Do you want something to eat? Don't be afraid, they won't hurt you.",ĦĦĦĦWellington, uneasy but impassive, was on horseback, and there remained the whole day in the same attitude, a little in advance of the old mill of Mont-Saint-Jean, which is still in existence, beneath an elm, which an Englishman, an enthusiastic vandal, purchased later on for two hundred francs, cut down, and carried off. Wellington was coldly heroic.,!ĦĦĦĦYou will say to me, `But her mother is dead.' Good; in that case I can only give the child up to the person who shall bring me a writing, signed by her mother, to the effect that I am to hand the child over to the person therein mentioned; that is clear.",ĦĦĦĦJust then Count Bezukhov was announced. Husband and wife glanced at one another, both smiling with self-satisfaction, and each mentally claiming the honor of this visit.,ĦĦĦĦ"I am not sorry.,ĦĦĦĦAll at once, on turning round, he thought he perceived in the portion of the street which he had just passed through, far off in the obscurity, something which was moving.;ĦĦĦĦHaving started farming from necessity, he soon grew so devoted to it that it became his favorite and almost his sole occupation. Nicholas was a plain farmer: he did not like innovations, especially the English ones then coming into vogue. He laughed at theoretical treatises on estate management, disliked factories, the raising of expensive products, and the buying of expensive seed corn, and did not make a hobby of any particular part of the work on his estate. He always had before his mind's eye the estate as a whole and not any particular part of it. The chief thing in his eyes was not the nitrogen in the soil, nor the oxygen in the air, nor manures, nor special plows, but that most important agent by which nitrogen, oxygen, manure, and plow were made effective- the peasant laborer. When Nicholas first began farming and began to understand its different branches, it was the serf who especially attracted his attention. The peasant seemed to him not merely a tool, but also a judge of farming and an end in himself. At first he watched the serfs, trying to understand their aims and what they considered good and bad, and only pretended to direct them and give orders while in reality learning from them their methods, their manner of speech, and their judgment of what was good and bad. Only when he had understood the peasants' tastes and aspirations, had learned to talk their language, to grasp the hidden meaning of their words, and felt akin to them did he begin boldly to manage his serfs, that is, to perform toward them the duties demanded of him. And Nicholas' management produced very brilliant results....

ĦĦĦĦ"Just so. There's no need for me to marry him. But... just so.",ĦĦĦĦThus in a time of trouble ever memorable to him after the birth of their first child who was delicate, when they had to change the wet nurse three times and Natasha fell ill from despair, Pierre one day told her of Rousseau's view, with which he quite agreed, that to have a wet nurse is unnatural and harmful. When her next baby was born, despite the opposition of her mother, the doctors, and even of her husband himself- who were all vigorously opposed to her nursing her baby herself, a thing then unheard of and considered injurious- she insisted on having her own way, and after that nursed all her babies herself.,ĦĦĦĦ"God grant only that Prince Kutuzov assumes real power and does not allow anyone to put a spoke in his wheel," observed Anna Pavlovna., ,ĦĦĦĦ"No, Mamma, he doesn't want to sleep," said little Natasha with conviction. "He's laughing.",ĦĦĦĦ"There is something so enchanting in the smile of melancholy," she said to Boris, repeating word for word a passage she had copied from a book. "It is a ray of light in the darkness, a shade between sadness and despair, showing the possibility of consolation.",,...

ĦĦĦĦ"This," answered Nicholas. "You say it rests with me. Well, I don't like Anna Mikhaylovna and I don't like Boris, but they were our friends and poor. Well then, this!" and he tore up the note, and by so doing caused the old countess to weep tears of joy. After that, young Rostov took no further part in any business affairs, but devoted himself with passionate enthusiasm to what was to him a new pursuit- the chase- for which his father kept a large establishment.,ĦĦĦĦ Researches in slang mean discoveries at every step.,!right at home. I know some big ol' bull queers who'd love to make your acquaintance...especially that big white mushy butt of yours...,ĦĦĦĦIf we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, the possibility of life is destroyed.,,.ERNIE...

ĦĦĦĦ"I had the pleasure," replied Prince Andrew, "not only of taking part in the retreat but of losing in that retreat all I held dear- not to mention the estate and home of my birth- my father, who died of grief. I belong to the province of Smolensk."! ,,ĦĦĦĦThe impression produced by this first discharge was freezing. The attack had been rough, and of a nature to inspire reflection in the boldest.,ĦĦĦĦBesides, he felt that she was devoted and trustworthy.,ĦĦĦĦAnd, as if to make the Russian general still more conscious of his dependence on brute force, Davout sent an adjutant to call the officer on duty.,FEVRIER 1637..
