ˇˇˇˇIn the imminent peril in which Jean Valjean found himself, this sombre building had about it a solitary and uninhabited look which tempted him., ,ˇˇˇˇ"Now then, now then, teach us how it goes!

Then she felt of the dear paper within her bosom under her gown, she pressed it to her heart, she felt its angles against her flesh; and if Jean Valjean had seen her at the moment, he would have shuddered in the presence of that luminous and unknown joy, which overflowed from beneath her eyelids.--"Oh yes!" she thought, "it is certainly he! This comes from him, and is for me!";ˇˇˇˇ"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?

RED (V.O.),ˇˇˇˇThere existed an interval of twenty paces between the grand barrier and the lofty houses which formed the background of the street, so that one might say that the barricade rested on these houses, all inhabited, but closed from top to bottom.,,,ˇˇˇˇ"This," answered Nicholas.

Perhaps she will see me," said Pierre.,ˇˇˇˇThey all grew silent.

It was she who had conveyed to Jean Valjean in the Champ de Mars the expressive warning:,ˇˇˇˇUlm, Wagram, Jena, Friedland, died with them.,ˇˇˇˇOf all these men Prince Andrew sympathized most with Pfuel, angry, determined, and absurdly self-confident as he was. Of all those present, evidently he alone was not seeking anything for himself, nursed no hatred against anyone, and only desired that the plan, formed on a theory arrived at by years of toil, should be carried out. He was ridiculous, and unpleasantly sarcastic, but yet he inspired involuntary respect by his boundless devotion to an idea. Besides this, the remarks of all except Pfuel had one common trait that had not been noticeable at the council of war in 1805: there was now a panic fear of Napoleon's genius, which, though concealed, was noticeable in every rejoinder. Everything was assumed to be possible for Napoleon, they expected him from every side, and invoked his terrible name to shatter each other's proposals. Pfuel alone seemed to consider Napoleon a barbarian like everyone else who opposed his theory. But besides this feeling of respect, Pfuel evoked pity in Prince Andrew. From the tone in which the courtiers addressed him and the way Paulucci had allowed himself to speak of him to the Emperor, but above all from a certain desperation in Pfuel's own expressions, it was clear that the others knew, and Pfuel himself felt, that his fall was at hand. And despite his self-confidence and grumpy German sarcasm he was pitiable, with his hair smoothly brushed on the temples and sticking up in tufts behind. Though he concealed the fact under a show of irritation and contempt, he was evidently in despair that the sole remaining chance of verifying his theory by a huge experiment and proving its soundness to the whole world was slipping away from him.,LastIndexNext,ˇ°Ha, ha, ha,ˇ± said Hermione sarcastically. ˇ°Goblins don't need protection.

In Moscow he felt at peace, at home, warm and dirty as in an old dressing gown.,ˇˇˇˇIt was the custom for Mitka to play the balalayka in the huntsmen's room when "Uncle" returned from the chase.

Connoisseurs of such matters declared that rarely had so many beautiful women been assembled in one place.

Enthusiastic whispering was audible.,ˇˇˇˇThe men of this party said and thought that what was wrong resulted chiefly from the Emperor's presence in the army with his military court and from the consequent presence there of an indefinite, conditional, and unsteady fluctuation of relations, which is in place at court but harmful in an army; that a sovereign should reign but not command the army, and that the only way out of the position would be for the Emperor and his court to leave the army; that the mere presence of the Emperor paralyzed the action of fifty thousand men required to secure his personal safety, and that the worst commander in chief if independent would be better than the very best one trammeled by the presence and authority of the monarch..ˇˇˇˇWhen she had finished, she remained wrapped in thought.!
