Elena did not know that every man's happiness is built on the unhappiness of another, that even his advantage, his comfort, like a statue needs a pedestal, the disadvantage, the discomfort of others.
Елена не знала, что счастие каждого человека основано на несчастии другого, что даже его выгода и удобство требуют, как статуя - пьедестала, невыгоды и неудобства других.

Facing it, beside the little door, stood the font – a former holy-water stoup resting on a stonework pedestal.
Напротив, возле низенькой двери, стояла купель, старинная кропильница на каменной подставке.

Stopping beside a small couch, Koroviev put his lamp on a pedestal, gestured to Margarita to sit down and then placed himself beside her in an artistic pose, one elbow leaned elegantly on the pedestal.
Возле какого-то диванчика Коровьев остановился, поставил свою лампадку на какую-то тумбу, жестом предложил Маргарите сесть, а сам поместился подле в живописной позе — облокотившись на тумбу.

He took hold of a straight-backed chair and moved it slowly and steadily into the hall near the front door and climbed up on it and stood for a moment like a statue on a pedestal, his wife standing under him, waiting.
Он взял стул с прямой спинкой, не спеша отнес его в переднюю, поставил у стены возле входной двери, взобрался на него. С минуту постоял неподвижно, как статуя на пьедестале, а Милдред стояла рядом, глядя на него снизу вверх, и ждала.

"Even if there is something of the 'pedestal' about it, so much the better," I said."A pedestal may be a pedestal but in itself it's a very precious thing.
- Даже если тут и "пьедестал", то и тогда лучше, - продолжал я, - пьедестал хоть и пьедестал, но сам по себе он очень ценная вещь.

In the third room something was heard to fall on the floor with a ringing crash: it was a large glass vase -- not an expensive one -- on a marble pedestal which Dmitri had upset as he ran past it.
В третьей комнате послышалось, как вдруг что-то упало об пол, разбилось и зазвенело: это была большая стеклянная ваза (не из дорогих) на мраморном пьедестале, которую, пробегая мимо, задел Дмитрий Федорович.

This 'pedestal' is, anyway, an 'ideal' of a sort, and it's by no means an improvement that some modern souls are without it: it's better to have it even in a slightly distorted form!
Этот "пьедестал" ведь всё тот же "идеал", и вряд ли лучше, что в иной теперешней душе его нет; хоть с маленьким даже уродством, да пусть он есть!

If he remained so late praying in the church, it was because he entertained the mad idea that the great golden Virgin would at last come down from her pedestal.
Он оставался так поздно в церкви за молитвой потому, что лелеял безумную мысль: быть может, пресвятая дева в конце концов сойдет к нему.

Maxwell ducked beneath the velvet rope that guarded the pedestal and clambered up beside the Artifact, crouching down beside it, fumbling in his pocket for the interpreting apparatus.
Максвелл нырнул под бархатный канат, огораживавший пьедестал, вскарабкался к самому Артефакту и скорчился рядом с ним, нащупывая в кармане аппарат-переводчик.

She had among other things to represent a 'statue,' and she chose as a pedestal the hideous Nirmatsky, told him to bow down in an arch, and bend his head down on his breast.
Ей пришлось, между прочим, представлять "статую" и она в пьедестал себя выбрала безобразного Нирмацкого, велела ему лечь ничком, да еще уткнуть лицо в грудь.
