Even though I would gladly give my life for others, it can never be, for that life is passed which can be sacrificed for love, and now there is a gulf fixed between that life and this existence.
Хотя бы и жизнь свою рад был отдать за других, но уже нельзя, ибо прошла та жизнь, которую возможно было в жертву любви принесть, и теперь бездна между тою жизнью и сим бытием".

А далеко-далеко за ней, в десятках, сотнях миль, едва видимая с другой стороны этого пустого пространства, - такая же кромка.

Он махнул рукой на все свое правильное, благоустроенное, добропорядочное будущее: он знал, что он бросается очертя голову в омут, куда и заглядывать не следовало... Но не это его смущало.
