Examples from texts

But this thirst for lawlessness proceeds most frequently, perhaps, from a latent craving for discipline and 'seemliness'--(I am using your own words).
Но это желание беспорядка - и даже чаще всего - происходит, может быть, от затаенной жажды порядка и "благообразия" (употребляю ваше слово)?

You wouldn't believe, Alexey, how I want to live now, what a thirst for existence and consciousness has sprung up in me within these peeling walls.
-- Ты не поверишь, Алексей, как я теперь жить хочу, какая жажда существовать и сознавать, именно в этих облезлых стенах, во мне зародилась!

If the fellow thirsts after ghostly comfort, as he is much more like to thirst after a quartern of brandy, there is Corporal Humgudgeon, who commands the _corps de garde_, will preach and pray as well as the best of ye.
Если этот негодяй жаждет духовного утешения, хотя гораздо больше похоже, что он жаждет четверти водки, на это есть капрал Хамгаджон, начальник охраны: он может проповедовать и молиться не хуже любого из вас…

Some drivelling consumptive moralists -- and poets especially -- often call that thirst for life base.
Эту жажду жизни иные чахоточные сопляки-моралисты называют часто подлою, особенно поэты.

But the ocean was vast, and we did not know whither we were sailing, and every hour the agony of thirst pressed us more closely.
Но океан велик, а мы даже не знали, в какую сторону плывем. С каждым часом страшная жажда терзала нас все сильнее.

The landscape generally was wild, lacking even a threadlet of water, dying of thirst, and flying away in clouds of dust at the least breath of wind.
Весь горизонт, казалось, угрюмо томился жаждой, изнывая без струйки воды; при малейшем дуновении его застилала завеса пыли.

But the only thing that mattered about a river, its flow of water, would no longer be there to quench their thirst.
Но воды – того единственного, что нужно реке, чтобы быть рекой и утолить их жажду, – там больше не будет.

Mr Swiveller replied that he had very recently been assuaging the pangs of thirst, but that he was still open to 'a modest quencher,' if the materials were at hand.
Мистер Свивеллер ответил, что он не так давно утолил мучившую его жажду, но тем не менее не откажется от «маленькой чарочки», если все нужное для соответствующей смеси под руками.

During the ten days that the shipwrecked dog had passed on the "Waldeck," it had kept at a distance, feeding itself, they knew not how, but having also suffered cruelly from thirst.
В те десять дней, которые они провели вместе на борту потерпевшего крушение корабля, Динго по-прежнему сторонился товарищей по несчастью. Как и чем он питался в эти дни, осталось неизвестным, но так же, как и люди, он жестоко страдал от жажды.
