For, by their very nature, they assailed, they corrupted, they undermined every state undertaking; their flaunting existences distorted and disguised all the values of life.

It was so agreeable to Staff-Captain Mikhailoff to walk about in this company that he forgot the dear letter from T , and the gloomy thoughts which had assailed him in connection with his impending departure for the bastion.
Штабс-капитану Михайлову так приятно было гулять в этом обществе, что он забыл про милое письмо из Т., про мрачные мысли, осаждавшие его при предстоящем отправлении на бастион, и, главное, про то, что в 7 часов ему надо было быть дома.

Sin assumed a thousand guises, assailed him through his eyes and ears, flew boldly at his throat, leaped treacherously upon his shoulders, or stole torturingly into his bones.
Грех принимал тысячи форм, он входил через глаза, проникал сквозь уши, схватывал его открыто за горло, предательски вскакивал к нему на плечи, терзал его до самого мозга костей.
