Элис Данскомб, ты не знаешь и тысячной доли тех мучений, которые меня заставляли терпеть высокорожденные негодяи, завидуя заслугам, на которые они не способны, и умаляя славу деяний, которые им недоступны!

Did this laziness result only from the repression of his ambition, or did he feel that it would detract from his superiority if he made adequate efforts—that only mediocre people have to work?
Проистекала ли эта леность только из его вытесненного честолюбия или же он чувствовал, что, если будет прилагать должные усилия, это уменьшит ощущение собственного превосходства — ведь только посредственным людям надо работать не покладая рук?

Avdotya Romanovna was remarkably good looking; she was tall, strikingly well-proportioned, strong and self-reliant- the latter quality was apparent in every gesture, though it did not in the least detract from the grace and softness of her movements.
Авдотья Романовна была замечательно хороша собою -- высокая, удивительно стройная, сильная, самоуверенная, -- что высказывалось во всяком жесте ее и что, впрочем, нисколько не отнимало у ее движений мягкости и грациозности.
