Examples from texts

Вернулись переселенцы, нет хлеба, в избах "кто хохочет, кто на стену лезет", но всё это так просто, что даже не верится, чтобы это было на самом деле.
The emigrants had returned, there was no bread; in the huts "some were laughing, some were delirious"; but it all looked so ordinary that one could not believe it really was so.

Все больны, все бредят, кто хохочет, кто на стену лезет; в избах смрад, ни воды подать, ни принести ее некому, а пищей служит один мёрзлый картофель.
Every one is sick, every one delirious, some laughing, others frantic; the huts are filthy; there is no one to fetch them water, no one to give them a drink, and nothing to eat but frozen potatoes.

И к тому же противоречия: горд, а мне предан рабски, -- предан рабски, а вдруг засверкают глазенки и не хочет даже соглашаться со мной, спорит, на стену лезет.
There were contradictions in him, too: he was proud, but he was slavishly devoted to me, and yet all at once his eyes would flash and he'd refuse to agree with me; he'd argue, fly into a rage.

Все унывают, все повесивши нос ходят, и в то же время все исполнены надеждой и чуть что, так на стену и лезут.
They are all depressed, they all walk with downcast heads, and at the same time they are all filled with hope, and on the smallest excuse they lose their heads and fly off into ecstasies.

- Что ты на стены-то лезешь? - досадливо проговорила Белоконская: - человек ты добрый, да смешной: два гроша тебе дадут, а ты благодаришь точно жизнь спасли.
"What are you making such a fuss about?" said the old lady, with annoyance. "You are a good fellow, but very silly. One gives you a halfpenny, and you are as grateful as though one had saved your life.
