But as a certain knowledge of history can arouse doubts about that closeness, the reader is reminded that the ways of history “have sometimes been too crooked and the most hazardous that could be imagined”.
Но так как некоторое знакомство с историей может вызвать сомнение в подобной близости, то читателям и ставится на вид, что исторические пути «бывали иной раз слишком кривыми и наиболее рискованными из всех, какие можно придумать».

The circles, in consequence, were jabbed crooked, and his panels, losing their symmetry, became comparatively pleasing to the untrained eye--and once he jabbed his finger.
Поэтому окружности получались неровные, а прямоугольники — кривые, но они стали только приятнее для неискушенного взгляда; а однажды он даже порезал палец.

Her dark eyes flashed, her lipsticked gash of a mouth tightened into a thin line as she raised a crooked index finger; she used it to emphasize her words by jabbing it at Kate.
Темные глаза женщины блеснули, мазок губной помады сжался в узкую линию, когда она вскинула согнутый указательный палец; направляя его в сторону Кейт, она подчеркивала свои слова.

"The pistol was a wretched thing, very crooked and wouldn't carry farther than fifteen paces at the most. However, it would send your skull flying well enough if you pressed the muzzle of it against your temple.
Пистолет этот дрянь, берет в сторону и бьет всего шагов на пятнадцать; но уж, конечно, может своротить череп на сторону, если приставить его вплоть к виску.
