Well, and did you ask yourself, you who can swim, what could be the reason of such a strange ... step on the part of a woman, not poor ... and not a fool ... and not ugly?
- Ну - и спрашивали вы себя, вы, умеющий плавать, какая может быть причина такого странного... поступка со стороны женщины, которая не бедна... и не глупа... и не дурна?

Future things swim before me, as in empty outlines and skeletons; all the past is somehow grown dim.
Будущее проплывает передо мной пустыми очертаниями и остовами; а прошлое словно затянуто дымкой.

There she sees among others one noteworthy set of sinners in a burning lake; some of them sink to the bottom of the lake so that they can't swim out, and 'these God forgets' -- an expression of extraordinary depth and force.
Там есть между прочим один презанимательный разряд грешников в горящем озере: которые из них погружаются в это озеро так что уж и выплыть более не могут, то "тех уже забывает бог" -- выражение чрезвычайной глубины и силы.

Anyway, everyone is screaming, ‘Get out! Get out!’ but we just swim in the cold water. We make it way out to the middle of the lake and we stop swimming. We turn toward the shore and wave to the people.
Все нам кричали: выходите из воды, вернитесь на берег! Но мы заплыли на самую середину озера, повернулись и помахали людям руками.

The tub in her room was empty and she hadn't wanted to disturb Taneh by getting someone to fill it, but another bath, or at least a swim, would be just the thing for starting off the day.
Ванна в ее комнате была пуста, однако беспокоить Тэнгл не хотелось, хотя Минда и не прочь была умыться, а по возможности и поплавать.

Lavretsky did not at once understand what he had read; he read it a second time, and his head began to swim, the ground began to sway under his feet like the deck of a ship in a rolling sea.
Лаврецкий не сразу понял, что такое он прочел; прочел во второй раз - и голова у него закружилась, пол заходил под ногами, как палуба корабля во время качки.

No one can cross the bridge without leave, so we will simply have to swim over to-night.
Без пропуска через мост никого не пускают, поэтому ночью мы просто переправимся через канал вплавь.

In such structure of Aquatir it is possible simultaneously to swim and to shoot from the air into the water, for example from smooth-bore weapon or long-bar- reled rifles that are not intended for underwater shooting.
В такой конструкции акватира можно одновременно плавать и стрелять из воздуха в воду, например, из охотничьего гладкоствольного или нарезного длинноствольного оружия, которые не приспособлены для подводной стрельбы.
«Excuse me,» I began, «but I heard that two girls were tragically attacked by an alligator at the swim club last night.
– Понимаете, я слышал, будто вчера вечером в бассейне недалеко отсюда двух молоденьких женщин съел крокодил.

He waved his arms as though he were trying to swim out and clutched at a bedstead, and at the same moment felt Nikita hit him twice on the back.
Он, точно желая выплыть, замахал руками и ухватился за чью-то кровать, и в это время почувствовал, что Никита два раза ударил его в спину.
