You cannot conceive the excitement which my appearance in such a costume made in Paris, and when I came to the Rue de Rivoli I should think I had a quarter of a mile of folk riding or running behind me.
Вы себе представить не можете, какой переполох вызвало мое появление в Париже в таком наряде, и, когда я выехал на рю де Риволи, за мной тянулся целый хвост конных и пеших длиной по меньшей мере в четверть мили.

I remember he said one time that a woman who knows all about men usually knows one part very well and can’t conceive the other parts, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there.”
Помню, он сказал мне как-то, что когда женщина считает себя знатоком мужчин, то обычно видит в них только одно и ни о чем другом даже не догадывается, а ведь в мужчинах много чего есть.

Before that blind face and that even more terrifying voice, I cowered as silently as I had when he first found me; but it was worse now, because I was older and could almost conceive of what he meant.
Я молча сжалась перед этим слепым лицом и еще более жутким голосом, как тогда, когда он впервые подобрал меня; но теперь было хуже, потому что я стала старше и почти понимала, что он имеет в виду.
