You must begin on the outside and walk it to its center without stopping. There is considerable resistance and the feat is quite an ordeal. If you stop, if you attempt to depart the Pattern before completing it, it will destroy you.
Ты должна выдержать испытание - дойти до центра Лабиринта не останавливаясь и никуда не сворачивая, иначе погибнешь.

It is a warfare of limited aims between combatants who are unable to destroy one another, have no material cause for fighting and are not divided by any genuine ideological difference
Это военные действия с ограниченными целями, причем противники не в состоянии уничтожить друг друга, материально в войне не заинтересованы и не противостоят друг другу идеологически.

I maintain that nothing need be destroyed, that we only need to destroy the idea of God in man, that's how we have to set to work.
По-моему и разрушать ничего не надо, а надо всего только разрушить в человечестве идею о боге, вот с чего надо приняться за дело!

We will destroy that desire; we'll make use of drunkenness, slander, spying; we'll make use of incredible corruption; we'll stifle every genius in its infancy.
Мы уморим желание: мы пустим пьянство, сплетни, донос; мы пустим неслыханный разврат; мы всякого гения потушим в младенчестве.

I would look first for an escape, and then for a means to destroy the creature while he slept, so that whether I succeeded or failed in vanquishing him I might immediately flee.
Прежде всего надо искать пути к бегству, затем — средства уничтожить это чудовище во сне. Тогда, даже если мне не удастся одолеть его, я смогу немедленно бежать.
