Examples from texts

But I understood: there was a quiver of something different in her voice, not abrupt, harsh and unyielding as before, but something soft and shamefaced, so shamefaced that I suddenly felt ashamed and guilty.
Но я уже все понял: в ее голосе уже что-то другое дрожало, не резкое, не грубое и несдающееся, как недавно, а что-то мягкое и стыдливое, до того стыдливое, что мне самому как-то вдруг перед ней стыдно стало, виновато стало.

The water churned around her as she gripped his hips, as she felt the muscles she’d admired quiver for her.
Вода кипела вокруг нее. Она ухватила Рорка за бедра и почувствовала, как напряглись мышцы, которыми она только что любовалась.

Yet here the water, which, both above and below, was so unruffled, showed a transient quiver, a rippling of its surface, as though it were surprised to find even this light veil cast over it.
Тем не менее, вода, которая и выше и ниже этой купы дерев текла однообразно‑спокойно, возле них была подернута рябью; по ее прозрачной коже проходило волнение, точно она удивлялась тому, что по ней волочится кончик какого‑то покрывала.

"Forgive me," he decided to say at last, and his voice had a little quiver of emotion, and he laid his hand on hers upon her knee.
— Простите меня, — наконец сказал он слегка дрожащим от волнения голосом и накрыл своей ладонью руку Анны-Вероники, лежавшую на ее колене.

The giant Borderman removed the arrow with its message from his quiver, fitted it to the ash bow and slipped forward into the night.

Masha was all a-quiver, like birch-bark in the fire; her delicate fingers flew playfully over the guitar, her dark-skinned throat slowly heaved under the two rows of amber.
Машу всю поводило, как бересту на огне; тонкие пальцы резво бегали по гитаре, смуглое горло медленно приподнималось под двойным янтарным ожерельем.
