Yet, though I could discern a great similarity between his disposition and my own (or perhaps it was because I could so discern it), the impression which he produced upon me at first was anything but agreeable.
Но несмотря на то, что в его направлении я находил много общего с своим - или, может быть, именно поэтому, - чувство, которое он внушил мне, когда я в первый раз увидал его, было далеко не приязненное.

In a void, under the effects of gravitation, all bodies move with the same velocities; the Moon s gravitation lends both Earth and steamer the same acceleration so we cannot discern any loss in weight.

In their faces I could discern anxiety for my health, so, although I felt so well after my twelve-hours' sleep that I could have got up directly, I thought it best to let them continue thinking that I was unwell.
По лицам их заметно было, что боялись за мое здоровье. Я же чувствовал себя так хорошо и легко после двенадцатичасового сна, что сейчас бы вскочил с постели, ежели бы мне не неприятно было расстроить их уверенность в том, что я очень болен.

This she performed very demurely; but the party on whom the salutation was conferred, thought he could discern in her manner an arch and mischievous exultation over his secret disappointment.
Она выполнила это весьма церемонно, но молодому человеку, к которому эти знаки почтения были обращены, почудилось в ее манере какое-то насмешливо-озорное торжество по поводу постигшего его разочарования.
