He'd lie under there while the cat licked himself all over out on the sidewalk, and pretty soon you could hear the dog begin to whimper and whine, and the cat would just stare down the alley at him and go on washing himself.
Он молча лежал там, а кот на тротуаре тщательно вылизывал себе лапки, и вскоре пес начинал поскуливать и тоненько повизгивать, а кот только посматривал на него своим единственным глазом и продолжал умываться как ни в чем не бывало.

And since things really couldn't be hurt, since things felt nothing, and things don't scream or whimper, as this woman might begin to scream and cry out, there was nothing to tease your conscience later.
А вещи не чувствуют боли, они не кричат и не плачут, как может закричать и заплакать эта женщина, так что совесть тебя потом не мучила.

Immediately Ben began to whimper again, and for a while all of them looked up the drive at the square, paintless house with its rotting portico.
И тотчас Бен захныкал снова, и с минуту все они стояли и смотрели в глубину аллеи, на облупленный квадрат фасада с трухлявыми колоннами.

Oct. 21, 2008: There's a universal tendency to heed Dylan Thomas's exhortation and go out with a bang instead of a whimper.
Существует такая вселенская тенденция: прислушаться к призывам Дилана Томаса и умереть с музыкой, а не со стоном.

A universal whimper arose round Harry, which the chaplain led off, whilst the young Virginian stood, simpering and well pleased, in the midst of this congregation.
И под водительством капеллана вокруг Гарри зазвучал хор благословений и хныканья. Молодой виргинец стоял среди благодарной паствы, смущенно улыбаясь и очень довольный.
