Since it was foreordained that he and Beatrice were to come together again, to produce a child named Chrono, Constant was under no compunction to seek and woo her, to send her so much as a get-well card.
Раз уж было точно предсказано, что он снова встретится с Беатрисой, чтобы зачать сына по имени Хроно, Констант не собирался увиваться за ней, добиваться ее, — даже открытки с пожеланием доброго здоровья он ей посылать не собирался.

"An hour," said Ahab, standing rooted in his boat's stern; and he gazed beyond the whale's place, towards the dim blue spaces and wide wooing vacancies to leeward.
— Час, — сказал Ахав, который стоял как вкопанный у себя в лодке, устремив рассеянный взор по ветру, туда, где тянулись туманные голубые просторы и широкие манящие дали.
