"I was walking with my brother, the brother of my childish years, the brother of whom, I must say, I never think, and whom I now hardly remember., That assumption would destroy the possibility of the existence of laws, that is, of any science whatever. If there is even a single body moving freely, then the laws of Kepler and Newton are negatived and no conception of the movement of the heavenly bodies any longer exists. If any single action is due to free will, then not a single historical law can exist, nor any conception of historical events., `The liberty of one citizen ends where the liberty of another citizen begins.', "Is everything ready?" said Jondrette.,; ;

The prowler executed the required feint, and said:--, "Don't mess Mary Hendrikhovna's dress!" cried other voices.,! This conception is the one handle by means of which the material of history, as at present expounded, can be dealt with, and anyone who breaks that handle off, as Buckle did, without finding some other method of treating historical material, merely deprives himself of the one possible way of dealing with it. The necessity of the conception of power as an explanation of historical events is best demonstrated by the universal historians and historians of culture themselves, for they professedly reject that conception but inevitably have recourse to it at every step.,espials; which enquire the secrets of the house, and bear tales of them to others. , During the whole time of his convalescence in Orel Pierre had experienced a feeling of joy, freedom, and life; but when during his journey he found himself in the open world and saw hundreds of new faces, that feeling was intensified. Throughout his journey he felt like a schoolboy on holiday. Everyone- the stagecoach driver, the post-house overseers, the peasants on the roads and in the villages- had a new significance for him. The presence and remarks of Willarski who continually deplored the ignorance and poverty of Russia and its backwardness compared with Europe only heightened Pierre's pleasure. Where Willarski saw deadness Pierre saw an extraordinary strength and vitality- the strength which in that vast space amid the snows maintained the life of this original, peculiar, and unique people. He did not contradict Willarski and even seemed to agree with him- an apparent agreement being the simplest way to avoid discussions that could lead to nothing- and he smiled joyfully as he listened to him. , "Citizens," said Enjolras, "what that man did is frightful, what I have done is horrible..but there be secret and hidden virtues, that bring forth fortune; certain deliveries of a man\'s self, which have no name.

The recognition of man's free will as something capable of influencing historical events, that is, as not subject to laws, is the same for history as the recognition of a free force moving the heavenly bodies would be for astronomy., "And you all listen to me!" said Rostov to the peasants. "Be off to your houses at once, and don't let one of your voices be heard!", Prince Andrew in his riding cloak, mounted on a black horse, was looking at Alpatych from the back of the crowd.,, The coachman turned to the inside travellers., I mean to bring them up virtuously, and they shall be honest, and nice, and believe in God, by the sacred name!, The replies this theory gives to historical questions are like the replies of a man who, watching the movements of a herd of cattle and paying no attention to the varying quality of the pasturage in different parts of the field, or to the driving of the herdsman, should attribute the direction the herd takes to what animal happens to be at its head.;

,, Napoleon looked up and down the river, dismounted, and sat down on a log that lay on the bank. At a mute sign from him, a telescope was handed him which he rested on the back of a happy page who had run up to him, and he gazed at the opposite bank. Then he became absorbed in a map laid out on the logs. Without lifting his head he said something, and two of his aides-de-camp galloped off to the Polish Uhlans.. the drama was not only melancholy; it was also obscure.. Monsieur mon frere,, But for all that Willarski found it pleasanter now than it had been formerly to be with Pierre, and came to see him every day.

ANDY, What was quite unprecedented, she neither struck her nor said an insulting word to her.,Andy is working the line.. It is because water is no longer drawn there. Why is water not drawn there?, The sole importance of the crossing of the Berezina lies in the fact that it plainly and indubitably proved the fallacy of all the plans for cutting off the enemy's retreat and the soundness of the only possible line of action- the one Kutuzov and the general mass of the army demanded- namely, simply to follow the enemy up. The French crowd fled at a continually increasing speed and all its energy was directed to reaching its goal. It fled like a wounded animal and it was impossible to block its path. This was shown not so much by the arrangements it made for crossing as by what took place at the bridges. When the bridges broke down, unarmed soldiers, people from Moscow and women with children who were with the French transport, all- carried on by vis inertiae- pressed forward into boats and into the ice-covered water and did not, surrender., "You came in opportunely!" ejaculated Bossuet.,!
