While if you stick to consciousness, even though the same result is attained, you can at least flog yourself at times, and that will, at any rate, liven you up.
Ну, а при сознании хоть и тот же результат выходит, то есть тоже будет нечего делать, но по крайней мере самого себя иногда можно посечь, а это все-таки подживляет.

Bazarov did not care for this measured and rather formal regularity in daily life, like "gliding along rails" he called it; livened footmen and stately butlers offended his democratic sentiments.
Базарову не нравилась эта размеренная, несколько торжественная правильность ежедневной жизни; "как по рельсам катишься", - уверял он: ливрейные лакеи, чинные дворецкие оскорбляли его демократическое чувство.
