She did not care for a brilliant marriage; she was eminently a woman calculated to soothe and sweeten the life of any man; decidedly pretty, if not absolutely handsome.
Блеска она не любила, не только не грозила хлопотами и крутым переворотом, но могла даже усладить и успокоить жизнь. Собой она была очень хороша, хотя и не так эффектна.

Never did a morning watch appear so long to the two young sailors, who were thus deprived, by resentment and pride, of that frank and friendly communion that had for so many years sweetened the tedious hours of their long and at times dreary service.
Никогда еще ночная вахта не казалась столь долгой этим молодым морякам, лишенным из-за своей ссоры и неумеренной гордости откровенной и дружеской беседы, которая вот уже много лет скрашивала утомительные часы их долгого и часто унылого бдения.

They know that the “iron law” of wages is the death sentence for modern society and are not against sweetening this law to repeal the sentence.
Они знают, что «железный закон» заработной платы есть смертный приговор современному обществу и не прочь позолотить этот закон для отмены приговора.

And then-the glory-so that a cricket song sweetens his ears, the smell of the earth rises chanting to his nose, and dappling light under a tree blesses his eyes.
Но вдруг — озарение; и вот уже песня сверчка пленяет твой слух; земля, гудя травами, посылает тебе свои запахи; рябь солнца, просеянная сквозь листву, ласкает взгляд.
