Had Huxley and Lincoln been born and educated in our time, they would have been the first to cringe with the rest of us at their own Victorian sentiments and unctuous tone.
Если бы Гексли и Линкольн родились и получили образование в наши дни, они вместе с нами отшатнулись бы от собственных оскорбительно-дидактических, в духе Викторианской эпохи, заявлений.

That vision made Bruenor cringe, for the orcs and dwarves visible in the drawing were not meeting in battle or even in parlay.
Бренор недовольно поморщился, едва на них взглянув, так как изображенные там орки и дворфы не сражались между собой и даже не вели переговоры.

He would cringe and flinch, if they stepped near him or made any sudden movement, and he avoided the touch of their elven-cloaks; but he was friendly, and indeed pitifully anxious to please.
Он поджимался и вздрагивал от их внезапных движений, боялся подходить близко и с ужасом сторонился их эльфийских плащей, но был приветлив и жалко угодлив.

Everywhere the weak execrate the powerful, before whom they cringe; and the powerful beat them like sheep whose wool and flesh they sell.
Везде слабые ненавидят сильных, перед которыми они пресмыкаются, а сильные обходятся с ними, как со стадом, шерсть и мясо которого продают.

A despot that has its priests and its slaves, a despot to whom all do homage with love and superstition hitherto inconceivable, before which science itself trembles and cringes in a shameful way.
Деспот, имеющий своих жрецов и рабов, деспот, пред которым всё преклонилось с любовью и суеверием, до сих пор немыслимым, пред которым трепещет даже сама наука и постыдно потакает ему.
