It was more horrifying to see the shock in her eyes than it was to witness the hundreds of ridiculous things I saw each and every day at work; the way she looked at me with that pure, unadulterated pity triggered something inside me.
И сейчас видеть шок в ее ясных глазах было ужаснее, чем день за днем замечать смехотворность моей работы; она смотрела на меня с такой искренней жалостью, что что-то во мне не выдержало и сломалось.

He was adrift on the shoreless tides of delirium, speaking very quickly- 'It's a pity,-a great pity; but it's helped, and it must be eaten, Master George.
Он бредил и говорил быстро-быстро, словно торопясь скорее все высказать. — Жаль, очень жаль, но ничего не поделаешь. Каша заварилась, надо ее расхлебывать.

There was no recovering Miss Taylor–nor much likelihood of ceasing to pity her; but a few weeks brought some alleviation to Mr. Woodhouse.
Мисс Тейлор уж не воротить было назад – а значит, по всей видимости, не устранить и причину жалеть ее, но все же по прошествии нескольких недель мистер Вудхаус испытал некоторое облегчение.
