Examples from texts

Это наводило на мысли о мрачной, унылой, безнадежной деятельности. Так оно и было до 1957 года. Крокетт, которого сливки общества Салимова Удела считали недалеко ушедшим от лентяя-неумехи, решил тогда, что будущее - за трейлерами.

Рассказывали, что они немало времени проводят за игральным столом, что им невероятно везет, что они задают роскошные обеды и ужины, принимая сливки здешнего общества, что выделяются своей эксцентричностью…
They were notorious for their assiduity at the tables and for their luck, for the dinners and suppers they gave at places frequented by the very opulent, and for their eccentric appearance.
