Examples from texts

Take criticism for example. If a promising young critic has to say, 'It's natural for a hen to lay eggs,' it takes him at least twenty whole pages to expound this mighty truth, and even then he doesn't quite manage it!
В критике... если молодому передовому рецензенту нужно сказать, что "курице свойственно нести яйца", - подавай ему целых двадцать страниц для изложения этой великой истины - да и то он едва с нею сладит!

Sanin proceeded to expound his case, that is to say, again, a second time, to describe his property, not touching this time on the beauties of nature, and now and then appealing to Polozov for confirmation of his 'facts and figures.'
Санин принялся "излагать дело", то есть опять, во второй раз, описывать свое имение, но уже не касаясь красот природы и от времени до времени ссылаясь на Полозова, для подтверждения приводимых "фактов и цифр".

“I wanted to expound my views to the meeting in the most concise form possible, but I see that I should need to add a great many verbal explanations, and so the whole exposition would occupy at least ten evenings, one for each of my chapters.
- Я хотел изложить собранию мою книгу по возможности в сокращенном виде; но вижу, что потребуется еще прибавить множество изустных разъяснений, а потому всё изложение потребует по крайней мере десяти вечеров, по числу глав моей книги.

But there is another aspect of the matter, and it concerns not the substance of our views but the form in which we chose to expound them.
Но есть другая сторона дела, касающаяся не сущности наших взглядов, а избранной нами формы изложения.

"Yes, really," I answered, and an idea crossed my mind which I proceeded to expound further. "Let me prove it to you.

THE MONKS WERE PUZZLED BY THIS REPLY, AND AFTER A SHORT WHILE INQUIRED AGAIN: "MASTER, WHAT DHARMA DO YOU EXPOUND IN ORDER TO LIBERATE OTHERS?"
Монахов удивил этот ответ, и после небольшой паузы они вновь спросили: - Мастер, какую дхарму истолковываешь ты, чтобы дать освобождение другим?

So Buddha says that if anybody says that Buddha expounds the dharma, he thereby slanders the Buddha and you, those dharma masters were doing the same thing - teaching, expounding.
Потому Будда сказал, что, если кто-то говорит, что Татхагата истолковывает дхарму, он оговаривает Будду. Эти же мастера дхармы делали именно это - учили, истолковывали.
