Examples from texts

Besides, I meddle not the least with any party, but write without passion, prejudice, or ill-will against any man, or number of men, whatsoever.
Кроме того, я не смотрю на вещи с точки зрения какой-нибудь партии, но пишу беспристрастно, без предубеждений, без зложелательства к какому-нибудь лицу или к какой-нибудь группе лиц.

Taunts and rebuffs, of course, don't matter; the point is that one never obtains one's object in that way: no one listens to you, however much you meddle ... and every one gets to dislike you."
На щелчки и насмешки, конечно, наплевать, но главное в том, что этим маневром ничего и не достигнешь: никто тебя не послушается, как ни вторгайся... и все тебя разлюбят.

If only he could get at that anonymous letter-writer, he would teach him not to meddle and stir up mud at the bottom of water which he wished should remain stagnant!...
Попадись ему только автор этого анонимного письма, он бы его отучил соваться в чужие дела и поднимать грязь со дна болота, когда другим желательно, чтобы она оставалась на дне…

И я решился задать ему вопрос, который задал несколько лет тому назад и на который получил такой резкий ответ, что больше не решался касаться его: не считает ли он нужным упразднить рабство?
