For a few minutes the struggle was intensely critical; for while they still slacked out the tightened line in one direction, and still plied their oars in another, the contending strain threatened to take them under.
Несколько мгновений судьба их висела на волоске, они еще послабляли натянувшийся линь, одновременно изо всех сил работая веслами, и обе эти соперничающие силы, казалось, вот-вот утянут их под воду.

But he saw too that in America the struggle was befogged by the fact that the worst Fascists were they who disowned the word "Fascism" and preached enslavement to Capitalism under the style of Constitutional and Traditional Native American Liberty.
А в Америке дело осложняется еще и тем, что наихудшие фашисты отрекаются от слова «фашизм» и проповедуют порабощение капитализму под видом конституционной и традиционной исконно американской свободы.

And we know that despite the most extreme “Narodnik” programmes our intelligentsia have not been able to hold out against the current and have found themselves forced to take up the political struggle.
И мы знаем, что, несмотря на самые «народнические» программы, наша интеллигенция не могла удержаться против течения, вынуждена была взяться за политическую борьбу.

I gained my feet, scooping my sword up; watched Captain Jack struggle up to hands and knees, then haul himself into a sitting position, facing me.
Я встала и спрятала меч в ножны. Капитан Джек, кряхтя и постанывая, тяжело встал сначала на четвереньки, потом поднялся на ноги.

But what can one earn by teaching the children of Russian merchants at ten copecks a lesson, especially with an invalid mother to keep? Even her death did not much diminish the hardships of the young man's struggle for existence.
Но много ли подучишь от русского купца за уроки по гривеннику, да еще с болезненною без ног матерью, которая, наконец, и своею смертью в отдаленной губернии совсем почти не облегчила его?

If it is “for that very reason” that liberalism “is condemned to impotence”, where will the socialists get their strength from when they begin the struggle for “the rights which are the objects of the desires and efforts of the liberals”?
Если либерализм именно «поэтому обречен на бессилие», то откуда возьмутся силы у социалистов, которые станут бороться за «права, составляющие предмет желаний и хлопот либерализма»?

“Party of action”, “the traditions of Narodnaya Volya”, “heroic struggle” – such have been the phrases used to disguise fear of the slightest reference to “formulae learned by rote” of our revolutionary catechism.
«Партия действия», «традиция Народной Воли», «героическая борьба» — вот фразы, которыми прикрывалась боязнь самомалейшего прикосновения к «заученным формулам» нашего революционного катехизиса.

The portionless, who struggle with no such unnecessary inherited encumbrances, find it labor enough to subdue and cultivate a few cubic feet of flesh.
Безземельные, которым не досталась эта наследственная обуза, едва управляются с тем, чтобы покорить и культивировать немногие кубические футы своей плоти.

It acts to accentuate the struggle for pecuniary reputability by visiting with a sharper disapproval all shortcoming and all evidence of shortcoming in point of pecuniary success.
Оно направлено на усиление борьбы за денежную престижность путем наложения резкого неодобрения па всякий промах и всякое свидетельство промаха в деле денежного преуспевания.

Tom stepped out of sight after Carys, and there was a noise of struggle, but Marty had little time to analyze it, as Chad doubled him up with a blow to the stomach.
Том шагнул к Кэрис, скрывшись из поля зрения, послышались звуки борьбы, но у Марти не было времени разобраться в этом, поскольку Чэд согнул его ударом в живот.

Even when the voice was joined by a rudely shaking hand and Susan knew she must wake up, it was a long, hard struggle.
Даже когда ее начала трясти чья-то рука и Сюзан поняла, что проснуться придется, ей потребовалось немало усилий, чтобы разлепить веки.

“What grounds are there for thinking that the struggle of the people against the bourgeoisie would be unthinkable in Russia if forms of social life like those abroad were indeed established there?
«Какое основание думать, что борьба народа с буржуазией в России была бы немыслима, если бы, действительно, в России установились формы общественной жизни, подобные формам заграничной?
