Some were naked and carrying their clothes; others half-naked, or more or less dressed, in school uniforms, grey, blue, fawn, jacketed or jerseyed.
Кое-кто был голый – те держали одежду под мышкой, кто-то был полуодет, другие даже одеты, в школьных формах, серых, синих, коричневых – кто в свитерке, кто в курточке.

He's devoted to his country - not like our empty patriots who fawn on the people; pour into us, they say, thou living water!

Contrary to legend - and there are so many legends about wolves, although mostly they are legends about the way men think about wolves - a trapped wolf is more likely to whine and fawn than go wild with rage.
О волках существует великое множество легенд, хотя большинство из них является легендами о том, что люди думают о волках. Так вот, вопреки этим легендам загнанный волк скорее будет выть и вилять хвостом, чем беситься от ярости.

Besides he fawned upon Pyotr Stepanovitch in a slavish way, and he, in his turn, had obtained by this time a strange and unaccountable influence over Yulia Mihailovna.

The great author trembled nervously before the revolutionary youth of Russia, and imagining, in his ignorance, that the future lay in their hands, fawned upon them in a despicable way, chiefly because they paid no attention to him whatever.
