He needed to cling to something to help bear his weight so he could rest in the water from time to time, and if it couldn't be this hatch cover, he would have to leave it and find something else.
Чтобы доплыть до берега, ему требовалось уцепиться за какой-нибудь плавающий предмет и таким образом время от времени давать себе отдых. И если крышку люка нельзя было использовать для этой цели, следовало найти что-то другое.

I needed someone to share that fear with, someone to cling to.
И мне требовался кто-то, с кем можно разделить свой страх, кто-то, к кому можно прислониться.

I cling to each instant with all my heart: I know that it is unique, irreplaceable and yet I would not raise a finger to stop it from being annihilated.
И каждым мгновением я безгранично дорожу – я знаю: оно неповторимо, незаменимо, – но я не шевельну пальцем, чтобы помешать ему сгинуть.

As she often said, she would have let herself be devoured; it seemed so sweet to feel all this life cling to her and encompass her with the warmth of eider-down.
Она часто говаривала, что с охотой дала бы им себя съесть, – так приятно ей было чувствовать, как вокруг нее бьется жизнь, теплая, пушистая…

And I'll tell you something, for your goodness to me; you've won a good man, not a light of love, you cling to him alone; cling to him stronger than death.
А я тебе, за твою доброту, вот что скажу: попался тебе человек хороший, не ветреник, ты уже держись одного крепче смерти держись.

Here it is, cling to that, don't let them trample me, they're going to kill me if I don't get up, I have to move with them, get up and walk with them, run with them or they'll crush me.
Вот он, за него надо держаться, потому что меня раздавят, растопчут, убьют, если не встану, я должен отправиться с ними, встать и идти с ними, бежать с ними, ибо, в противном случае, меня просто разнесут на кусочки.

Is the nature of men such, that they can reject miracle, and at the great moments of their life, the moments of their deepest, most agonising spiritual difficulties, cling only to the free verdict of the heart?
Так ли создана природа человеческая, чтоб отвергнуть чудо и в такие страшные моменты жизни, моменты самых страшных основных и мучительных душевных вопросов своих оставаться лишь со свободным решением сердца?
