Sir Leicester in a great chair looks at the file and appears to have a stately liking for the legal repetitions and prolixities as ranging among the national bulwarks.
Сэр Лестер, покоясь в огромном кресле, смотрит на пламя камина и, кажется, величественно одобряет перегруженное бесчисленными повторами судейское многословие, видимо почитая его одним из оплотов нации.

The King will receive you in a manner that cannot displease you; and no doubt you will make an allowance for the customs of the country, if some things should not be to your liking.
Государь примет вас так, что вы не останетесь недовольны и, без сомнения, отнесетесь снисходительно к тем обычаям страны, которые вам, возможно, не понравятся.

The answer he came up with was not much to his liking, but he was a captain in His Divine Emperor's Navy, and so it was not in his nature to show any sign of fear or weakness on his own command deck and before the eyes of his expectant crew.
В конце концов, он пришел к довольно неутешительным выводам, но как командир корабля имперского Военно-космического флота не считал себя вправе обнаружить хотя бы крупицу страха, сомнения или нерешительности на капитанском мостике.

We may add that he not only believed in his honesty, but had, for some reason, a liking for him, although the young man looked as morosely at him as at everyone and was always silent.
Надо прибавить, что не только в честности его он был уверен, но почему-то даже и любил его, хотя малый и на него глядел так же косо, как и на других, и всё молчал.

“They fought well,” Teyeo observed, knowing he should not say it as he said it, but not liking to hear the men and women he had fought against called dusties.
— Эти варвары показали себя хорошими воинами, — ответил Тейео, прекрасно понимая, что ему не следовало говорить подобных слов. Однако ему не нравилось, когда мужчин и женщин, с которыми он сражался, называли смердами.

But in a year we were back and we began doing the same things over again and not liking them so much.
Но год спустя мы вернулись и принялись делать все то же самое снова и снова, хотя не находили в этом прежнего удовольствия.

Duncan nodded-liking the comforting sound of Mr Mundy's voice; liking the quaintness of the words-pluck , Burden , Error , chum ; but not, in his heart, believing any of it.
Дункан кивал, слушая приятный успокаивающий голос мистера Манди и забавные странные слова: «скинь», «Бремя», «Заблуждение», «дружок», но в душе ничему этому не верил.

I found Mr. Hagan, and came away with a liking, and almost a respect for him, although I own he has made a very improvident marriage.
Итак, я посетил мистера Хэгана и покинул его, проникшись к нему симпатией и, я бы даже сказал, уважением, хотя он и заключил безрассудный брак.

I only learned that the marriage, which only failed to take place through the girl's death, was not at all to Praskovya Pavlovna's liking.
Узнал я только, что брак этот, совсем уж слаженный и не состоявшийся лишь за смертию невесты, был самой госпоже Зарницыной очень не по душе...
