Nay, nay - rise - do not kneel - it is for your sovereign to kneel to thee, Alice, to whom he is a thousand times more devoted than the wanderer Louis dared venture to profess himself.
Нет, нет, встаньте, не преклоняйте колена… Это ваш государь должен стоять перед вами на коленях, Алиса… Он предан вам в тысячу раз больше, чем это посмел бы выразить скиталец Луи.

But if a man is poor and doesn't profess to believe in what some of them scarcely believe themselves, they wouldn't lift a finger to help him against the ignorance of their followers.
Но если человек беден и не заявляет во всеуслышание о своей вере в то, во что они сами едва ли верят, тогда они и мизинцем не шевельнут, чтобы помочь ему в борьбе с невежеством их последователей.

For one cannot profess the theoretical principles of the “great teacher” and deduce Bakuninism or Blanquism from them in practice.
Ведь нельзя же признавать теоретические положения «великого учителя» и умозаключать от них к бакунизму или бланкизму на практике.

I have never been in the way of learning compliments myself, and I don’t profess to understand the art of paying ’em. In fact, despise ’em.
Я лично никогда этому делу не обучался; комплименты не по моей части — скажу прямо, терпеть их не могу.

"In anything that other people deride and despise you invariably profess to see something extraordinarily good!" Varenika was saying in her clear voice, as she articulated each syllable with careful precision.
- Ты всегда стараешься видеть в том, над чем другие смеются и что все презирают, - говорила Варенька своим звучным голосом и отчетливо выговаривая каждую букву, - ты именно во всем этом стараешься находить что-нибудь необыкновенно хорошее.

The Marxism which I profess at present is consequently but a purgatory th rough which my socialist soul must pass to obtain final rest in the lap of Blanquism.
Проповедуемый мною в настоящее время марксизм представляет собою, следовательно, лишь чистилище, через которое должна пройти моя социалистическая душа для окончательного успокоения в лоне бланкизма.
