Veined with a delicate tracery of pipes for the cooling fluid, they looked like the wings of some vast dragonfly, and from certain angles gave Discovery a fleeting resemblance to an old-time sailing ship,
Покрытые сеткой тонких трубок, несущих охлаждающую жидкость, они походили на крылья гигантской стрекозы, и со стороны, под определенным углом зрения, «Дискавери» чем-то напоминал старинный парусный корабль.

He already watched over her with a guardian's watchful care, thrusting aside the stones and brambles, jealous lest the breeze should waft a fleeting kiss upon those darling locks which were his alone.
Он оберегал ее, как ревнивый страж, удалял камни и колючки с ее пути, следил, чтобы ветер не посягнул на право ласкать ее обожаемые волосы, принадлежавшие ему одному.

I began to feel irritated, and to interpret every fleeting glance which he cast at Monsieur Frost as a mute inquiry: "Why has this fellow come to see me?"
Я начинал приходить в раздраженное состояние духа, каждый взгляд Ивина ловил на лету и, когда он встречался с глазами Фроста, переводил его вопросом: "И зачем он приехал к нам?"

From those questions alone, from the miracle of their statement, we can see that we have here to do not with the fleeting human intelligence, but with the absolute and eternal.
Уж по одним вопросам этим, лишь по чуду их появления, можно понимать, что имеешь дело не с человеческим текущим умом, а с вековечным и абсолютным.

From the vantage point of this cosmic perspective, we see therefore that the conditions for life as we know it are but a fleeting episode in a much larger tapestry.
Рассматривая вселенную в таких грандиозных временных масштабах, мы, таким образом, видим, что условия известной нам жизни являются всего лишь микроскопическим штрихом на гигантском гобелене истории.

The shingles seemed even colder than the floor, and she had a fleeting longing for the jogging shoes tucked in the back of her closet in Manhattan.
Черепица оказалась еще холоднее, чем пол, и Кэролайн с сожалением вспомнила о кроссовках, оставленных дома в шкафу.

For a fleeting moment she wished that she had never joined Pastwatch, rather than to face this moment, to have it be her hand that pulled the switch.
На мгновение ей захотелось, чтобы она никогда не работала в Службе, чтобы не было этого момента, чтобы ее рука не потянула переключатель.

She even had one fleeting memory of seeing the Earl of Edgecombe twirling Frances about one corner of the room, holding her rather closer than Mr. Huckerby would approve of.
Краем глаза она уловила в отдалении вальсирующих графа Эджкома и Френсис. Граф прижимал ее к себе ближе, чем одобрил бы мистер Хакерби.

'I think, my dear son,' returned Mrs. Maylie, laying her hand upon his shoulder, 'that youth has many generous impulses which do not last; and that among them are some, which, being gratified, become only the more fleeting.
— Я думаю, дорогой мой сын, — ответила миссис Мэйли, положив руку ему на плечо, — что юности свойственны благородные стремления, которые не бывают длительными, а среди них есть такие, которые, будучи удовлетворены, оказываются еще более мимолетными.

After supper four girls of the village danced for them, without music, their movements and footfalls so light and swift that they seemed bodiless, a play of light and dark in the glow of the fire, elusive, fleeting.
После ужина для них стали танцевать без музыки четверо девушек; девушки двигались и ступали так легко и быстро, что казались бестелесными, казались игрой света и тьмы в отблесках пламени.
