Alice Dunscombe, you know not a thousandth part of the torture that I have been made to feel, by high-born miscreants, who envy the merit they cannot equal, and detract from the glory of deeds that they dare not attempt to emulate.
Элис Данскомб, ты не знаешь и тысячной доли тех мучений, которые меня заставляли терпеть высокорожденные негодяи, завидуя заслугам, на которые они не способны, и умаляя славу деяний, которые им недоступны!

You must begin on the outside and walk it to its center without stopping. There is considerable resistance and the feat is quite an ordeal. If you stop, if you attempt to depart the Pattern before completing it, it will destroy you.
Ты должна выдержать испытание - дойти до центра Лабиринта не останавливаясь и никуда не сворачивая, иначе погибнешь.

It would be justified to once again notice that the Sorbonne Declaration was not attempt to limit cultural or educational diversity and does not contain the ideas that might lead to such interpretation thereof.
Оправданно еще раз заметить: Сорбоннская декларация не являлась попыткой ограничить культурное или образовательное многообразие и не содержит в себе идей, допускающих подобное ее толкование.

Twice, after tortuous effort, squirming and twisting, he failed in breasting the big trunk, and on the third attempt, after infinite exertion, he cleared it only to topple helplessly forward and fall on his face in the tangled undergrowth.
Человек дважды тщетно пытался, карабкаясь и извиваясь, переползти через огромный ствол и лишь после третьей попытки почти на исходе сил одолел его только для того, чтобы беспомощно свалиться в густой кустарник.

I will not for the time attempt to define my spiritual condition; if I were to give an account of it the reader would scarcely believe in it.

He did not attempt to dispute the uselessness and absurdity of the word “fatherland,” acknowledged the pernicious influence of religion, but firmly and loudly declared that boots were of less consequence than Pushkin; of much less, indeed.
Он бесспорно согласился в бесполезности и комичности слова "отечество"; согласился и с мыслию о вреде религии, но громко и твердо заявил, что сапоги ниже Пушкина и даже гораздо.

Then that scoundrel Colonel Shchetkin drove up and said (here Myshlaevsky twisted his expression in an attempt to imitate the features of the detested Colonel Shchetkin and he began talking in a thin, grating lisp):
Приезжает эта лахудра – полковник Щеткин и говорит (тут Мышлаевский перекосил лицо, стараясь изобразить ненавистного ему полковника Щеткина, и заговорил противным, тонким и сюсюкающим голосом):

It would therefore be an inefficient allocation of resources to attempt to duplicate those services by establishing a separate translation unit for the Office of the Prosecutor.
Поэтому было бы нерационально выделять ресурсы на оплату попыток продублировать эти службы путем создания отдельной группы письменных переводов в Канцелярии Обвинителя.

Поэтому мы попытаемся описать эти процессы (особенно в последних разделах главы) таким образом, чтобы они были применимы и при более общих обстоятельствах, нежели те, что рассматриваются здесь.
