This same great personage conceived the brilliant idea of sowing his fields with poppies, as the result of an apparently simple calculation; poppy being dearer than rye, he argued, it is consequently more profitable to sow poppy.
Тот же самый сановник вздумал было засеять все свои поля маком, вследствие весьма, по-видимому, простого расчета: мак, дескать, дороже ржи, следовательно, сеять мак выгоднее.

They’re distracting and sow the seeds for all kinds of mistakes and future difficulties, as you have discovered.

I tell you this, that if everyone were to go in for being learned and refined there would be no one to sow the corn and do the trading; they would all die of hunger."

The old sow had finally been captured and she and her brood rooted and grunted happily under the house where they were penned.
Старую свинью в конце концов удалось изловить, и она вместе со своим потомством весело похрюкивала и зарывалась в землю в подполе, куда их упрятали.

In Old Terran cultures almost every animal name has been used as an insult: pig, dog, sow, cow, shark, louse, skunk, worm - the list is endless.
В культуре Старой Земли почти каждое наименование животного служило целям оскорбления: свинья, собака, корова, акула, вошь, скунс, червяк – список был бесконечен.
