Examples from texts

She talked to-day at dinner with a gaiety and carelessness so false, so shockingly out of her character, that I secretly longed to silence her and take her away.
Сегодня за обедом она разговаривала с такой искусственной веселостью и небрежностью, так не вяжущейся с ее характером, что мне втайне хотелось заставить ее замолчать и увести ее.

To rush in a car, to silence rudely those people who were anxious to tell him things, to cut short conversations on the plea of urgent necessity all this was the breath of life to Inspector Slack.
