Well, that's praiseworthy, and it's better for you... and if you reach a line you won't overstep, you will be unhappy... and if you overstep it, maybe you will be still unhappier....
Что ж, и похвально; тебе же лучше... и дойдешь до такой черты, что не перешагнешь ее -- несчастна будешь, а перешагнешь -- может, еще несчастнее будешь...

But young people carried away by their own wit don't think of that 'when they overstep all obstacles' as you wittily and cleverly expressed it yesterday.
А об этом и не подумает увлекающаяся остроумием молодежь, "шагающая через все препятствия" (как вы остроумнейшим и хитрейшим образом изволили выразиться).

There is a line in everything which it is dangerous to overstep; and when it has been overstepped, there is no return."
Во всем есть черта, за которую перейти опасно; ибо, раз переступив, воротиться назад невозможно.

"And, if so, could you bring yourself in case of worldly difficulties and hardship or for some service to humanity- to overstep obstacles?...
-- А коль так-с, то неужели вы бы сами решились -- ну там ввиду житейских каких-нибудь неудач и стеснений или для споспешествования как-нибудь всему человечеству -- перешагнуть через препятствие-то?..

However, these arguments would only hold good in case of Nastasia acting as others might in such an emergency. She was much more likely to overstep the bounds of reasonable conduct by some extraordinary eccentricity.
Но всё это в таком только случае, если бы Настасья Филипповна решилась действовать, как все, и как вообще в подобных случаях действуют, не выскакивая слишком эксцентрично из мерки.

Now that the array is allocated, we can access the elements in the normal way, provided we do not overstep the bounds.
Теперь в памяти размещен весь массив, так что мы можем обращаться к его элементам, как обычно, при условии, что индексы не выходят за пределы допустимого диапазона.

At this the President intervened and checked the over-zealous speaker, begging him not to exaggerate, not to overstep the bounds, and so on, as presidents always do in such cases.
Тут председатель вступился и осадил увлекшегося, попросив его не преувеличивать, оставаться в должных границах, и пр., и пр., как обыкновенно говорят в таких случаях председатели.

Napoleon attracted him tremendously, that is, what affected him was that a great many men of genius have not hesitated at wrongdoing, but have overstepped the law without thinking about it.
Наполеон его ужасно увлек, то есть, собственно, увлекло его то, что очень многие гениальные люди на единичное зло не смотрели, а шагали через, не задумываясь.

He has suffered a great deal and is still suffering from the idea that he could make a theory, but was incapable of boldly overstepping the law, and so he is not a man of genius.
Он очень страдал и теперь страдает от мысли, что теорию-то сочинить он умел, а перешагнуть-то, не задумываясь, и не в состоянии, стало быть человек не гениальный.

As I spoke she got up from her seat, and turned more and more crimson; but suddenly she seemed in alarm at something, at the overstepping of some line which should not have been crossed and she quickly interrupted me.
Пока я говорил, она подымалась с места и всё более и более краснела; но вдруг как бы испугалась чего-то, какой-то черты, которую не надо бы перескакивать, и быстро перебила меня:

It was the same curious fact he had noted so many times before, in A Company; Warden was scrupulously fair, in his own eccentric way, he never overstepped his own private, self-constructed line of equity.
Еще в первой роте он много раз с удивлением замечал, что Тербер на свой чудаковатый лад непогрешимо честен и никогда не нарушает установленные им самим нормы справедливости.

Above all, he knew where to draw the line. He could restrain himself on occasion, and in his relations with the teachers he never overstepped that last mystic limit beyond which a prank becomes an unpardonable breach of discipline.
Главное, знал меру, умел при случае сдержать себя самого, а в отношениях к начальству никогда не переступал некоторой последней и заветной черты, за которою уже проступок не может быть терпим, обращаясь в беспорядок, бунт и в беззаконие.
