The passivity and political indifference of the Russian peasant could not embarrass one who expected no great independent political action from the working class in the West.
Пассивность и политический индифферентизм русского крестьянства не могли смущать того, кто не ожидал большой политической самодеятельности от рабочего класса Запада.

He seemed to use them rather as instruments to search other people's thoughts, than as agents to reveal his own: the which combination of keenness and reserve was considerably more calculated to embarrass than to encourage.
Казалось, он пользуется ими как орудием для проникновения в мысли других людей, а не для того, чтобы открывать собственные; это сочетание проницательности и замкнутости могло скорее привести в замешательство, чем ободрить.

The tea stood on the table; we did not touch it. I had got to the point of purposely refraining from beginning in order to embarrass her further; it was awkward for her to begin alone.
Чай стоял на столе; мы до него не дотрогивались: я до того дошел, что нарочно не хотел начинать пить, чтоб этим отяготить ее еще больше; ей же самой начинать было неловко.

An air of splendour, sufficiently faded to be melancholy, and sufficiently dazzling to clog and embarrass the details of life with a show of state, reigned in these rooms.
В этих комнатах царила роскошь, в достаточной мере поблекшая, чтобы казаться меланхолической, и в достаточной мере ослепительная, чтобы затруднять повседневную жизнь показным великолепием.
