Turning problems into potential
¡¡¡¡She had two big wings. My mother must have been almost a saint during her life.",¡¡¡¡That name, it will be remembered, was one of the pieties of his soul; he mingled it with the name of his father in his worship.;The Italians note some of them, such as a man would little think. When they speak , ,¡¡¡¡While Marius had been dreaming with his head pressed to the tree, an idea had crossed his mind; an idea, alas! that he himself judged to be senseless and impossible..¡¡¡¡Of a fourth opinion the most conspicuous representative was the Tsarevich, who could not forget his disillusionment at Austerlitz, where he had ridden out at the head of the Guards, in his casque and cavalry uniform as to a review, expecting to crush the French gallantly; but unexpectedly finding himself in the front line had narrowly escaped amid the general confusion. The men of this party had both the quality and the defect of frankness in their opinions. They feared Napoleon, recognized his strength and their own weakness, and frankly said so. They said: "Nothing but sorrow, shame, and ruin will come of all this! We have abandoned Vilna and Vitebsk and shall abandon Drissa. The only reasonable thing left to do is to conclude peace as soon as possible, before we are turned out of Petersburg.".¡®Diffindo!¡¯ yelled Harry, trying to sever the feelers wrapping themselves tightly around Ron before his eyes, but they would not break.

Changing lives and communities
¡¡¡¡"Well, General, it all looks like war," as if regretting a circumstance of which he was unable to judge..,¡¡¡¡He had laid his hand lightly on Cosette's mouth.,¡¡¡¡"Now he is censured and accused by all who were enthusiastic about him a month ago," Prince Andrew was saying, "and by those who were unable to understand his aims.
