Try as she might to intensify that longing, summon it to her aid, lean on it, the feeling of distaste only grew stronger.
Теперь она старалась вспомнить как можно явственнее свою тогдашнюю мечту, воскресить ее, опереться на нее. Тщетно. Ощущение неприязни было сильнее.

Abbe Mouret had gone to lean against the wooden screen which separated the choir from the nave, by the side of Brother Archangias.
Аббат Муре стал рядом с братом Арканжиа и прислонился к деревянной перегородке, отделявшей хоры от средней части церкви.

In its turn, the lean solution formed after the evaporation is, prior to carrying out the absorption, also cooled and throttled, while the strong solution is after the absorption compressed, heated and sent for a re-vaporization.
В свою очередь слабый раствор, образовавшийся после выпаривания, перед проведением абсообпии также охлаждают и дросселируют, а крепкий раствор после абсорбции сжимают, нагревают и подают для повторного выпаривания.
A raw-boned, hook-nosed chestnut horse shambled unsteadily under his weight; two lean, crook-pawed greyhounds kept turning round just under the horse's legs.
Чахлая горбоносая рыжая лошадь металась под ним как угорелая; две борзые собаки, худые и криволапые, тут же вертелись у ней под ногами.

In a lean organization people have room to move without colliding with one another and can do their work without having to explain it all the time.
В "малонаселенной" организации всем хватает места, чтобы спокойно работать, не сталкиваясь с чужими "сферами влияния". Сотрудники могут спокойно заниматься своим делом, без необходимости постоянно объяснять, "что они там делают".

In a pure MM world where no financing decision matters, the financial manager would lean toward taking the project but would not be heartbroken if it were discarded.
В мире ММ, где решения по финансированию не имеют значения, финансовый менеджер мог бы согласиться принять проект, но мог бы без малейшего сожаления и отказаться от него.

The sight of the lean almond trees, the scanty corn crops, the weak vines, on either side of the way, soothed him, delivered him from the perturbation into which the lusty atmosphere of the Paradou had thrown him.
Тощие миндальные деревья, скудные хлеба, жалкие лозы по обе стороны тропы действовали на аббата умиротворяюще, отгоняя тревогу и смятение, в которые было ввергли его слишком пышные ароматы Параду.

The air coming through the opened inlet windows 44 will lean the fuel-air mixture, which may decrease the operating stability of the engine.
Поступающий через открытые впускные окна 44 воздух обеднит топливовоздушную смесь, что может понизить стабильность работы двигателя.
The few patches of arable ground were like scattered pools of blood, red fields with rows of lean almond trees, grey-topped olive trees and long lines of vines, streaking the soil with their brown stems.
Только изредка, точно кровавые ссадины, виднелись клочки возделанной земли – бурые поля, обсаженные рядами тощих миндальных деревьев, увенчанные серыми верхушками маслин, изборожденные коричневыми лозами виноградников.

If a budget battle forces you to pare down your wish list for a server, lean toward improving I/O before upping processor speed.
Если бюджет требует сокращения расходов на аппаратные средства сервера, стоит сначала обратить внимание на улучшение производительности подсистемы ввода-вывода и только после этого рассматривать более мощные процессоры.
