Examples from texts

Yet though convinced that he had acted rightly, some kind of unpleasant after-taste remained, and to stifle that feeling he dwelt on a thought that always tranquilized him — the thought of his own greatness.
Но, несмотря на то, что он был уверен, что поступал так, как должно, у него оставалась какая-то неприятная отрыжка, и, чтобы заглушить это чувство, он стал думать о том, что всегда успокаивало его: о том, какой он великий человек.

We will destroy that desire; we'll make use of drunkenness, slander, spying; we'll make use of incredible corruption; we'll stifle every genius in its infancy.
Мы уморим желание: мы пустим пьянство, сплетни, донос; мы пустим неслыханный разврат; мы всякого гения потушим в младенчестве.

I'm going to sit here and keep watch" He scrubbed his eyes with his knuckles and tried to stifle a rending yawn.
Буду всю ночь сидеть и сторожить. – Он потер кулаками глаза и едва сдержал душераздирающий зевок.

To stifle petty thoughts he made haste to reflect that he himself, and Hobotov, and Mihail Averyanitch, would all sooner or later perish without leaving any trace on the world.
Чтобы заглушить мелочные чувства, он спешил думать о том, что и он сам, и Хоботов, и Михаил Аверьяныч должны рано или поздно погибнуть, не оставив в природе даже отпечатка.

"His passion might well, for a moment, stifle not only the fear of arrest, but even the torments of conscience.

When she opened her lips for the kiss which was to stifle her, the hyacinths and tuberoses shot out their perfume and enveloped her with so deep, so great a sigh that the chorus of the roses could be heard no more.
Она раскрыла рот, ища поцелуя, которому суждено было задушить ее, – и тогда задышали гиацинты и туберозы, они обволокли ее своим дурманящим дыханием, таким шумным, что оно покрыло собою даже хор роз.

She threw herself, face downwards, on the sofa, trying to stifle them, but still her body heaved and throbbed like a captured bird.
Она бросилась лицом на диван, старалась заглушить их, но все ее тело поднималось и билось, как только что пойманная птичка.

The great majority of people live active and satisfactory enough lives behind their masks to enable them to stifle more or less painlessly any emptiness they may feel whenever they stop and listen to their heart.
Большинство людей проживает со своей маской достаточно активную и удовлетворительную жизнь, чтобы более или менее безболезненно подавить ощущение пустоты, возникающее, когда они останавливаются и прислушиваются к своему сердцу.

But she began to stifle as passion drew nigh with the clove-like breath of the carnations, which burst upon her in brazen notes that seemed to drown all others.
Но тут Альбина стала задыхаться все больше и больше, точно страсть хлынула на нее вместе с внезапным вступлением пряного, острого запаха гвоздики, чьи трубные звуки покрыли на время все остальное.

'You should have heard him yell,' Nate said. He snorted laughter, then put one small fist up to his mouth to stifle any further impropriety.
- Слышал бы ты, как он завопил, - сказал Нат и фыркнул, но тут же прижал кулачок ко рту, подавляя дальнейшее недостойное хихиканье.

She was sitting in the corner, on a trunk. Bent forward, with her head and arms on the bed close by, she was crying bitterly, doing her utmost to stifle her sobs that she might not be heard.
Она сидела в углу, на сундуке, и, склонившись с руками и с головой на подле стоявшую кровать, горько плакала, изо всех сил крепясь и скрадывая голос, чтобы не услышали.
