He seemed to be thinking of something ludicrous and silly, to be feeling contempt and dislike, to be pleased at something and waiting for the favourable moment to turn something into ridicule and to burst into laughter.
Он как будто думал о чем-то смешном и глупом, кого-то терпеть не мог и презирал, чему-то радовался и ждал подходящей минуты, чтобы уязвить насмешкой и покатиться со смеху.

The ridicule and the contempt which had so often been heaped upon him had turned his mind inward and called forth those flowers which he felt would never lose their fragrance.

This was the subject of some ridicule in the legal world, for just by this characteristic our prosecutor had gained a wider notoriety than could have been expected from his modest position.
В юридическом мире над этим несколько смеялись, ибо наш прокурор именно этим качеством своим заслужил даже некоторую известность, если далеко не повсеместно, то гораздо большую, чем можно было предположить в виду его скромного места в нашем суде.

They turn all this affair of the Pope- burning into ridicule; and, indeed, they have made too great a clutter about it, if they had no real reason to apprehend some tumults.
Затею с сожжением папы они пытаются превратить в шутку; впрочем, министры и в самом деле подняли вокруг этого слишком много шума, если только у них не было действительных оснований опасаться каких-нибудь бесчинств.

"Choose, you proud peat!" said the page, drawing off in huge disdain at the calm and unembarrassed ridicule with which his wild proposal was received.
— Ну что же, воля ваша, гордячка вы этакая, — пренебрежительно ответил паж, выказывая свое полное безразличие к тому, что его дикое предложение было встречено весьма спокойно и открыто высмеяно.

And if I dared to turn your beautiful, admirable simplicity to ridicule, forgive me as you would a little child its mischief. Forgive me all my absurdity of just now, which, of course, meant nothing, and could not have the slightest consequence."
А если я осмелилась обратить в насмешку ваше прекрасное... доброе простодушие, то простите меня как ребенка, за шалость; простите, что я настаивала на нелепости, которая, конечно, не может иметь ни малейших последствий...

Мечтал замкнуться где-нибудь в подвале и после многих лет страдания и насмешек выйти оттуда с аэропланом новой конструкции, развивающим неслыханную скорость.
