Examples from texts

And in a glass cupboard in the passage were several shillings-worth of test-tubes and chemicals, a tripod, a glass retort, and a damaged Bunsen burner, manifesting that the 'Scientific laboratory' mentioned in the prospectus was no idle boast.
А в стеклянном шкафу в коридоре хранилось несколько грошовых пробирок, кое-какие химикаты, треножник, стеклянная реторта и испорченная бунзеновская горелка, свидетельствующие о том, что «научная лаборатория», указанная в проспекте, не пустые слова.

'I seldom showed it - never - I know that. But I had that belief in you, that if I had been asked to name the person in the world least likely to retort upon me, I would have named you, confidently.'
– Я редко это показывала, никогда, я знаю; но я так доверяла вам, что если бы мне предложили назвать человека, который менее всего способен ответить на обиду обидой, я бы не колеблясь назвала вас.

But the meek Father's words had little effect and even provoked a mocking retort. "That's all pedantry and innovation, no use listening to it," the monks decided.
Но речи смиренного отца пронеслись без внушения и даже вызвали отпор насмешливый: "это всё ученость и новшества, нечего и слушать", — порешили про себя иноки.

And, if looking into this eye of mine, he dares to offer a word in answer, to retort upon him before he can take his breath, "Add another word to that, you dusty old dog, and you're a beggar."'
- И если, глядя мне в глаза, он посмеет ответить хотя бы слово, оборвать его, чтоб он дух не успел перевести: "Еще одно слово, старый грязный пес, и ты нищий".

Robert Buckman's book Can We Be Good without God? quotes the same admirable retort by a John Frum disciple, this time to a Canadian journalist some forty years after David Attenborough's encounter.
В книге Роберта Бакмана "Можно ли быть хорошим без бога?" цитируется тот же восхитительный ответ почитателя Джона Фрума, данный канадскому журналисту примерно через 40 лет после встречи Сэма и Дэвида Аттенборо.
