Children no older than you had to work twelve hours a day for cruel masters who flogged them with whips if they worked too slowly and fed them on nothing but stale breadcrusts and water.
Детям, твоим сверстникам, приходилось работать двенадцать часов в день на жестоких хозяев; если они работали медленно, их пороли кнутом, а питались они черствыми корками и водой.

Overhead was a woolly warm sky; underfoot feverish soft grass; and from all quarters the languorous breeze bore faint reminiscences of stale sewage upon its wings.
Над головой простиралось теплое, словно шерстяное, небо; под ногами шуршала трава, и отовсюду апатичный бриз нес на своих крыльях легкое напоминание о сточных канавах.

In the club you leaned into each other and talked loud over the music about parents and food and the difference between the taste of a fresh cigarette in your mouth and the smell of stale smoke.
В клубе вас потянуло друг к другу, вы громко, перекрикивая музыку, разговаривали о родителях, о еде, о разнице между вкусом свежей сигареты и запахом насквозь прокуренного помещения.

The ragamuffin reeked of stale, cheap alcohol, and his gaze, directed past Momos at the niggardly donor, was filled with a fierce, burning hatred.
От оборванца несло сивушным перегаром, а взгляд, устремленный в обход Момуса, на скупердяя-дарителя, был полон жгучей, лютой ненависти.

Adjustment to America—the food, the manners, the glorious showers—hadn’t been too grueling, but the houseguest thing was quickly becoming stale.
Снова привыкнуть к Америке и ее кухне, типичной манере общения и маниакальному пристрастию к личной гигиене было не особенно трудно, но не следовало злоупотреблять гостеприимством Лили.

The living room smelt of stale tobacco and something that could have been patchouli oil – been a while since Rebus had come across that particular scent.
В гостиной пахло остывшим табачным дымом и чем-то, напоминающим масло пачулей; Ребус, впрочем, не был уверен на все сто, так как в последний раз сталкивался с этим запахом довольно давно.

The old generations of apes and sub-men before us had aged minds; their narrow reluctant wisdom was the meagre profit, hoarded and stale and sour, of innumerable lives.
У поколений обезьян и полулюдей, которые предшествовали нам, ум был дряхлый – вся их узкая неподвижная мудрость была скудным плодом бесчисленных жизней, плодом, тщательно хранимым, утратившим свежесть и кислым.

With a bread knife Miss Martha made a deep slash in each of the stale loaves, inserted a generous quantity of butter, and pressed the loaves tight again.
Хлебным ножом она сделала глубокий надрез в каждой черствой булке, всунула туда изрядное количество масла и снова плотно прижала булки.

By the time we found ourselves lying on the stale, neat bed, I had already learned something of the negotiation between lovers and their clothing.
К тому времени, как мы оказались на жесткой, гладко застеленной кровати, я уже знала кое-что об отношениях между любовниками и их одеждой.
