He cleared his throat, took a sip of water, broke the nib of a quill against the desk, and, folding his bony hands before him, began.
Он откашлялся, отпил глоток воды из стакана, царапнул гусиным пером о пюпитр и, сложив на животе костлявые руки, начал.

In a little while he was hard at work again, and the only sounds in the room were the ticking of the clock and the subdued shrillness of his quill, hurrying in the very centre of the circle of light his lampshade threw on his table.
Тишину в комнате нарушало лишь тиканье часов да поскрипывание пера, бегавшего по бумаге в самом центре светлого круга, отбрасываемого лампой на стол.

“Well, if you really think so,” the planter said hesitantly; and he began pulling money out of his pockets, money that was mixed with tangled string, and pieces of chalk, and a bit of a quill pen, and a broken key.
— Ну, если вы, правда, так думаете, — нерешительно произнес плантатор и начал выгребать из кармана деньги вместе со спутанной веревочкой, кусочками мела, обломком гусиного пера и ключом без бородки.

One day she saw Aileen sweep in from her carriage, wearing warm brown furs, smart polished boots, a street-suit of corded brown wool, and a fur toque sharpened and emphasized by a long dark-red feather which shot upward like a dagger or a quill pen.
Однажды она видела, как из коляски вышла Эйлин в коричневом костюме, соболях, элегантных лакированных ботинках и меховом токе с длиннымпредлинным темнокрасным пером, торчавшим над головой словно шпиль или лезвие кинжала.

So was the fact that he had once been as alive as we were, had set a quill to this parchment with a warm, living hand.
Когда-то он был таким же живым, как мы теперь, и держал перо теплой живой рукой.

I rejoice, however to perceive that he wrote with a broad-pointed quill pen, and I can hardly doubt that we will find some impression upon this blotting-pad.
Это значит, что он писал мягким широким пером. И я почти уверен, что в этом случае нам может помочь пресс-папье.

The ear has no external leaf whatever; and into the hole itself you can hardly insert a quill, so wondrously minute is it.
Китовое ухо совершенно лишено какой бы то ни было наружной раковины, да и самое отверстие так удивительно мало, что в него едва войдет гусиное перо.

Writing in the age of the Internet is really different from the days when Victor Hugo would stand by a writing desk and write great novels on one continuous strip of paper with a quill pen.
Творчество в эпоху Интернета значительно отличается от творчества той эпохи, когда Виктор Гюго неторопливо писал длинные, прекрасные романы.

The clerk wrote down his words, for I heard the quill scratching on the paper, and as he wrote, Guatemoc turned his head and saw me.
Я услышал, как заскрипело перо по бумаге: писец записал его слова. В этот миг Куаутемок повернул голову и увидел меня.

During the actual transmission she behaved perfectly, to my amazement, doing all the things that I wanted: she gurked fearsomely, stamped her feet, and rattled her quills like castanets, as though she were a born television star.
И вот – передача. К моему удивлению, Далила вела себя образцово, делала все, что от нее требовалось: грозно рявкала, топала нотами, гремела иглами, как кастаньетами, – звезда, да и только.

One stage hand received a sharp stab in the calf of his leg, two pieces of scenery were irretrievably damaged, and the entire set was pierced so full of porcupine quills it looked as though we had been fighting off an Indian attack.
Одному рабочему игла вонзилась в икру, две декорации были совсем испорчены, а остальные утыканы иглами так, словно мы попали под град стрел, отражая нападение краснокожих.
