Yet, I must confess to a certain disappointment at finding that no one paid any particular attention to my politeness and good-humour.
Должен, однако, сознаться, что мне было несколько неприятно то, что никто не обратил особенного внимания на мою кротость и добродетель.

I was taken back again to those schooldays I had been reflecting on, when cruel children would imitate my movements, and I confess that as I watched the novice staggering about, bent and gesticulating, the hair rose on my neck.
В какое-то мгновение я вновь почувствовал себя затравленным школьником, мишенью для насмешек и издевательств. Наблюдая за согбенным, нарочито жестикулирующим безумцем, я ощущал, как волосы у меня становятся дыбом.

And if I put you in prison,- say you've been there a month, or two, or three- remember my word, you'll confess of yourself and perhaps to your own surprise.
А засади я вас в тюремный-то замок - ну месяц, ну два, ну три посидите, а там вдруг и, помяните мое слово, сами и явитесь, да еще как, пожалуй, себе самому неожиданно.

"Just now, I confess," began the prince, with more animation, "when you asked me for a subject for a picture, I confess I had serious thoughts of giving you one.

I confess I might well have resented that blind, deaf fate, which, with no apparent reason, seemed to have decided to crush me like a fly; but why did I not stop at resentment?
Согласен, что я мог тогда злиться на темный и глухой жребий, распорядившийся раздавить меня, как муху, и, конечно, не зная зачем; но зачем же я не кончил одною злостью?

"Oh, if you put it in that way " cried the general, excitedly, "I'm ready to tell the whole story of my life, but I must confess that I prepared a little story in anticipation of my turn."

Although I am convinced that at that moment Karl Ivanitch was speaking with absolute sincerity (for I know how good his heart was), I confess that never to this day have I been able quite to reconcile his words with the bill.
Что Карл Иваныч в эту минуту говорил искренно это я утвердительно могу сказать, потому что знаю его доброе сердце; но каким образом согласовался счет с его словами, остается для меня тайной.
