Wherein the reader is led, once quickly, then again more slowly, down the highways and a few byways of Einstein's geometrodynamics— without benefit of a good mathematical compass.
В которой читателя сначала бегло, а затем более подробно знакомят с основными положениями и некоторыми более второстепенными вопросами геометродинамики Эйнштейна, не пользуясь в качестве компаса преимуществами хорошего математического аппарата.

Straight toward the north, day and night, our destination compass led us after the fleeing flier upon which it had remained set since I first attuned it after leaving the thern fortress.
Днем и ночью летел наш аэроплан прямо к северу. Наш «компас назначения» все еще был направлен на судно врага с того момента, как я установил его, вылетев из крепости жрецов.

Although he was new, he already understood that out side was his ka, just as it was the ka of winter's wind to swing through only half the compass: from north to east and then back again to bleak north once more.
Он только что вошел в этот мир, но уже понимал, что находиться вне любого круга — его ка, точно так же, как ка зимнего ветра — мотаться взад‑вперед только по половине круга, от севера до востока, потом от востока через север до запада, и обратно.

He was crouched together into the smallest possible compass, his luminous green eyes turned over his shoulder regarding me.
Он весь съежился, обернувшись через плечо, его блестящие зеленые глаза смотрели на меня.

"Enough, Mr. Griffith," interrupted Manual; "a column of troops is not to be steered like a ship, by compass, and bearings and distances;--trust me, sir, the march shall be conducted with proper discretion, though in a military manner."
— Довольно, мистер Гриффит, — перебил его Мануэль. — Колонну солдат не ведут, как корабль, по компасу, пеленгам и расчетам дальности. Поверьте мне, сэр, мой отряд пойдет с должной осторожностью, но так, как подобает солдатам!

'Hush,' said Sam, swinging himself on to the wall, and crouching there in as small a compass as he could reduce himself to, 'only me, miss, only me.'
— Тише! — сказал Сэм, перемахнув на забор и съежившись, чтобы занимать как можно меньше места. Это только я, мисс, только я.

Putting her GPS compass away, she hauled out the locket from the chair around her neck that she wore under her sweater. She focused on the image and felt —
Спрятав GPS-навигатор, она сняла с шеи висевший под свитером на цепочке медальон, сосредоточила все внимание на рисунке, ощутила…

Imagination, fancy, and invention, they are wholly strangers to, nor have any words in their language, by which those ideas can be expressed; the whole compass of their thoughts and mind being shut up within the two forementioned sciences..
Воображение, фантазия и изобретательность совершенно чужды этим людям, в языке их нет даже слов для выражения этих понятий, и вся их умственная деятельность заключена в границах двух упомянутых наук.

And I walk down the path into the woods, this time carrying my compass, glancing at it every once in a while to get a general idea of where the cabin is.
Снова прошелся по лесной дороге, на этот раз прихватив с собой компас. Поглядывал на него, сверяя направление к дому.

The problem of trisecting the general angle by a ruler and compass construction is unsolvable in one sense; but in another is solved by its being shown that the required construction cannot exist.
Проблема трисекции произвольного угла с помощью циркуля и линейки в некотором смысле неразрешима; но в другом смысле она решена тем, что показано несуществование требуемого построения.

Why, man, the very Quakers have renounced it, and have got in its stead a gallant recorder, called Hypocrisy, that is somewhat like Sincerity in form, but of much greater compass, and combines the whole gamut.
Даже квакеры — и те отказались от нее, заменив ее доброй старой флейтой по имени Лицемерие, которая наружностью напоминает Искренность, но голос у нее гораздо больше и берет всю гамму.

According to the Humvee’s trip meter we traveled exactly a mile and a half and according to its compass we traveled south and west, and then we arrived at the crime scene.
Если верить спидометру «хаммера», мы преодолели ровно полторы мили, перемещаясь на юго-запад. Наконец мы вновь оказались на месте преступления.
