"Karamazov's a riddle to me all the same.
-- А всё-таки Карамазов для меня загадка.

The brothers Karamazov
Dostoevsky, Fyodor
And the son who breaks into his father's house and murders him without murdering him is not even a romance- this is a sphinx setting us a riddle which he cannot solve himself.
А сын, вломившийся к отцу, убивший его, но в то же время и не убивший, это уж даже и не роман, не поэма, это сфинкс, задающий загадки, которые и сам уж конечно не разрешит.

The "new" answers don't spoil the old riddle, for there are no land mammals native to Antarctica.
На самом деле «новые» ответы не подходят для старинной головоломки, потому что в Антарктике нет наземных млекопитающих, включая медведей.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, HARPER LEE, AND Flannery O'Connor smiled down on me, as if mocking my inability to solve the riddle of their shared quality.
Джордж Вашингтон, Харпер Ли и Фланнери О'Коннор улыбались мне со стен, словно иронизируя над моей неспособностью догадаться, что же у них общего.
