(31) But there were people around him in the compartment, and the senior assistant commander considered it necessary to witty in order to maintain their will in them. (32) The storm interrupted the emergency buoy through which the connection was carried out, and Slava could say nothing more. (ЗЗ) When the boat was lifted, a senior assistant was found at the lowest step of the ramp to the exit hatch. (34) His subordinates were ahead of him. (35) He fulfilled his duty as a naval officer to the very end. (Zb) If they had managed to leave the boat, he would be the last to leave. (37) They died from poisoning.

(1) Hundreds of books have been written about the Battle of Borodino, every minute of this dramatic event has been studied along and across in the smallest detail. (2) But there is one moment, mysterious, almost mystical, which requires deep reflection. (A) Imagine you are playing chess with a distinguished grandmaster. (4) Your position is awful, crowded spectators have already doomedly gave up, offering you not to waste time and throw out the white flag. (5) What will anyone who knows the rules of the game do in this situation? (6) He will analyze the position on the board and, realizing the futility of his resistance, humbly capitulate. (7) Naturally, the example of a chess game only partly explains the situation in which Kutuzov found himself during the Borodino battle. (8) The fate of the motherland is at stake. (9) The picture of the battle changes almost every minute. (10) The roar of guns, the whistle of bullets, the cries of the attackers. (11) Every second they send reports that sometimes contradict each other. (12) An orderly arrives from Barclay de Tolly, the former commander of the Russian army. (13) Barclay transmits: to keep is no longer possible, you need to retreat. (14) Bagration was seriously wounded, the enemy crowding the exhausted Russian soldiers. (15) The position is almost hopeless! (16) What is Kutuzov’s determination based on? (17) On stubbornness? (18) On uncompromising wickedness? (19) In desperation? (20) Or is it simply that the will is paralyzed by fear and the commander is simply powerless to take any decision? (21) No! (22) Why does a chess player not surrender to an experienced opponent? (23) Perhaps he sees a winning move, which the others, hypnotized by the authority of his opponent, do not notice. (24) Kutuzov saw not only the overall picture of the battle: it was clearly not in our favor! (25) He, unlike others, saw the eyes of soldiers. (26) Wise, experienced Barclay, who soberly assessed the situation, seemed senseless to fight a stronger opponent, and this chess logic has its own reason. (27) But it does not take into account one thing: people are not soulless figures subordinate to the grandmaster’s fatal will. (28) A soldier can drop a weapon and raise his arms, or he can stand to death. (29) Kutuzov saw clearly: the fighters are fighting and are not going to yield to the enemy. (30) At that moment it is impossible to approach the artilleryman or the grenadier and say: “Everything, men, stop the slaughter! (31) We lost! ”(32) It was not the logic of military tactics that dominated the battlefield, but personal qualities: will, determination, perseverance. (ZZ) It is in chess a pawn, obeying the rules, is doomed to yield to the power of the queen. (34) In a real battle, another measurement system, and the dedication and bravery of a simple soldier, can be shattered by the cunning plan of the commander crowned with laurels. (35) Kutuzov understood this better than others. (36) “We would have crushed any other army before noon!” One of the French commanders said, and these words clearly sounded confusion caused by the usual calculations, correlations, measures, patterns suddenly stopped acting, because instead of pawns Warriors fought with the enemy. (37) History is truly a textbook of life, its moral lesson does not always fit into a clear and precise formula. (38) But the most important thing is that it turns out when you familiarize yourself with the past and try to comprehend the causes of past victories and defeats, flourishes and decadence – this is a huge value of those seemingly unobtrusive, sometimes invisible elements that make up the human personality. (39) Cowardice and fearlessness, ambition and nobility, greed and disinterestedness, egoism and self-sacrifice, deceit and devotion – the development of humanity determines the power energy of these properties, and the awareness of the moral meaning of the past makes us not external observers, but active participants in history.

(1) Precise human observation is present: we notice the air when it begins to be missed.

(4) In the ordinary, in our inconspicuousness there is probably no air on earth closer than the grass. (5) We are accustomed to the world – green. (6) We pour gasoline, fuel oil, kerosene, acids and alkalis on grass. (7) Pour out the factory slag machine and cover and isolate the grass from the sun? (8) Just think! (9) How many herbs are there? (10) Ten square meters. (11) Do not fall asleep man, grass. (12) Grows elsewhere. (13) Once, when winter ended and the antifreeze in the car was no longer needed, I opened the faucet and all the liquid from the radiator spilled onto the ground, onto the lawn under the windows of our village house. (14) Antifreeze spread out in an oblong puddle, then it was washed away by rain, but on the ground, it turns out, there was a severe burn. (15) Among the dense small grass growing on the lawn, a sinister black spot was formed. (16) For three years the earth could not heal the place of the burn, and only then the pleshina again healed with grass. (17) Under the window, of course, noticeable. (18) I regretted that I did not care, I ruined the lawn. (19) But this is under your own window! (20) Every day you walk by, see and remember. (21) But if somewhere far away from the eyes, in a ravine, on a forest edge, in a roadside ditch, yes, God, is there enough grass on the ground? (22) Is it a pity? (23) Just think, slag was poured out (iron cuts, rubble), crushed several millions of blades of grass, really such a higher, compared with herbs, essence, like a man, to think and take care of such insignificance as a blade of grass! (24) Grass. (25) Grass is grass. (26) Its a lot. (27) She is everywhere. (28) In the forest, in the field, in the steppe, on the mountains, even in the desert. (29) Is that here in the desert it is smaller. (30) You begin to notice that, it turns out, it may be like this: there is land, but there is no grass. (31) A terrible, creepy, hopeless sight! (32) I imagine a man in an endless, desert-free desert, like our Earth after some cosmic or non-cosmic catastrophe, when he discovered that on the charred surface of the planet he is the only green sprout from darkness to the sun.

(1) Sergey Nikolaevich Pletenkin returned home, as usual, at half past eight. (2) He worked in a service workshop, right in the center of the city. (A) To justify the fuel, on the way home he made a stop near the central market and picked up, if you are lucky, a fellow traveler. (4) Today, he was incredibly lucky, the soul sang with joy, and he barely unwound, without even washing his hands, immediately rushed to the kitchen to talk about an amazing incident. (5) The wife stood near the sink and washed the dishes. (6) My daughter finished the tea with a disgruntled look and, capriciously sticking out her lower lip, asked: (7) – Mom, why not? (8) – Because. – irritably answered the mother. (9) – Get your father’s leave! (10) Pletenkin impatiently waved his hand, asking for silence, and, squealing with joy, than always irritating his wife, began to tell. (11) – Imagine, I’m going past the central market today, some woman is slowing me down. (12) Asks me to bring her up to the plant management. (13) I look: a leather coat, boots stylish, well, and on the face of such, it is clear that well-groomed. (14) I immediately her: three hundred. (15) She even opened her mouth. (16) Well, nothing, village, I drove it to management. (17) She comes out and gives me five hundred rubles. (18) I am like this: “So, but I don’t have anything to give up!” (19) She looked at me, shook her shoulders and said: “Okay, leave the change to yourself!” (20) Imagine how lucky! (21) – Yeah! (22) There would be all the passengers like that! – stretched his wife. (23) – You go my hands and let’s sit down to have supper. (24) Pletyonkin closed in the bathroom and began washing his hands, scrolling the details of everything that happened again and again. (25) Thick black hair, thin fingers with a wedding ring, a slightly detached look. (26) This look happens to people who have lost something, and now they are looking at where the missing thing should lie, knowing full well that they will not find it there. (27) And suddenly he remembered her! (28) It was Natasha Abrosimova, she studied in a parallel class. (29) Of course, she changed: she was an invisible plain woman, and now she has become a real lady, but the melancholy disappointment in her eyes remains. (30) Once in the eleventh grade, he volunteered to conduct it, led by quiet streets so that they would not be seen together. (31) Her eyes were shining with happiness, and when he asked to write an essay for him to the contest "You and your city", she immediately agreed. (32) Pletenkin won the first place, received a free ticket to St. Petersburg, and after that he no longer paid attention to the bespectacted plain. (33) And only at the graduation ball, having drunk champagne, in an impulse of tearful sentimentality, he tried to explain something to her, and she looked at him with the same weary longing with which she looked today. (34) – Well, it turns out that I deceived you! (35) – Me? – she smiled. (36) – Have you deceived me? (37) – And to whom! – He said, and stupidly grinned. (38) She silently left. (39). Pletenkin frowned his hands. (40) He thought that he would meet her and return her two hundred, no, not two hundred, but all five hundred rubles. (41) But with despair I realized that I would never do that. (42) – Why are you stuck there? (43) Everything is cold on the table! – Having lost patience, my wife shouted from the kitchen. (44) “Have you deceived me?” – he remembered again, and he trudged along to a cooling soup.

(1) Early in the morning, in the dark, I went up and walked to the train, driving in a crowded car. (2) Then – a slushy platform. (A) Urban winter gloomy twilight. (4) The human stream carries you to the entrance to the subway. (5) There is a crush: at the door, at the turnstiles, at the escalators, in the underground passages. (6) In the yellow electric light, a silent human river flows and flows. (7) In the evening, look, hear enough, get tired, barely wander. (8) Again – the subway, its dungeons. (9) Get out of there, take a breath and hurry to the train, in her evening crush, praying God not to cancel. (10) So did my life in Moscow: day after day, another week after week. (11) Then you will get up dark, and you will be stuck to the house after dark. (12) I am not happy with anything, even with winter and snow. (13) December has already gone, hurrying by the New Year. (14) One evening I was doubly lucky: the train was not canceled and the car was not painfully stuffed. (15) I sat down, turned the newspaper. (16) Although there is something to read: killed, blown up, robbed. (17) Evening train, tired people. (18) Third, closeness, blowing from the vestibule, someone grumbles. (19) He closed his eyes, but he didn’t have time to doze off: young girls started talking nearby. (20) Well, that did without the wretched "shorter", "cool." (21) Ordinary girlish chatter: lectures, practice, off-words, study. (22) Then they remembered the New Year, because it is not far away. (23) “It’s time to buy presents,” one of them said. (24) – Why give? (25) And everything is expensive. (26) – You have not prepared gifts yet ?! – the other girl was horrified. (27) – When will you have time ?! (28) – And you? (29) – Oh, I have almost everything ready. (30) Mom, I was still in the fall, when I was in Kimry, I bought slippers on felt, the old man was selling. (31) Handmade, inexpensive. (32) Mommy’s feet hurt. (33) And there – felt. (34) Oh, how mom will be delighted! – her voice rang with such joy, as if she herself had been given something very good. (35) I raised my head, looked: an ordinary young girl. (36) The face is lively, sweet, the voice, like a bell, rings. (37) – And dad. (38) We have such a good dad, hard-working. (39) And I will give him. (40) And the grandfather. (41) And to grandma. (42) Not only me and the neighbors, but it seems that the entire carriage was already listening to the happy story of a girl about New Year’s gifts. (43) Probably, everyone, like me, retreated, daytime, savory was forgotten, and awakened, flooded with something else, because indeed the New Year is close. (44) I got out of the car with a light heart, did not hurry, skipping hurrying. (45) The road is glorious: birches and pines guard the path; it doesn’t hurt cold, but it’s warm at heart. (46) Thanks to the girl who took the train. (47) And to help her – a crimson clean sunset over the black spruces, a small river mumbling in the darkness under a flexible wooden walkway, speaking far away, children’s laughter and, of course, hope. (48) So walk on, man.

(1) There are animals that cannot hear, and their soul is filled with the emptiness of a dead silence. (2) There are animals that are endowed with only one ability — to feel the warmth of an approaching victim, and, hiding in pitch darkness, they do not know any feeling, except for the hunger sucking their womb. (H) It’s one thing when we talk about a dumb fish or a reptile that is unable to fly, and it’s another thing when some people show complete atrophy of those abilities that would seem peculiar to a person by its very essence. (4) Fyodor Tyutchev wrote about these spiritual cripples: “They do not see or hear, they live in this world like in the dark. ". (5) If a person does not perceive beauty, then the world for him becomes monotonous, like wrapping paper; if he does not know what a nobility is, then the whole human history for him is represented by an endless chain of meanness and intrigue, and by touching the high movements of the human spirit, he leaves greasy imprints of his hands. (6) Once, in one of the metropolitan newspapers, known for its accusatory pathos, I came across an article in which the author claimed that patriotism is peculiar only to gray, primitive, underdeveloped people, in which individual feeling has not yet fully matured. (7) Then the author, proving the thesis that heroic selflessness is not generated by nobility, as is commonly thought, but by the underdevelopment of the personality, gives excerpts from Uliana Gromova’s farewell letter. (8) During the Great Patriotic War, this girl became one of the leaders of the underground organization “Young Guard”, which included people, many of whom were not even twenty years old. (9) The guys pasted leaflets with reports on the situation at the front, hung out red flags, showed everyone that the invaders had conquered the city, but did not conquer the people. (10) The fascists seized the underground workers, savagely tortured them, and then executed them. (11) Before her death, Ulyana Gromova managed to write a letter to her relatives. (12) The author of the article finds punctuation and spelling errors in this short message: here the address is not marked with commas, here is the wrong letter in the case ending of the noun. (13) Hence the conclusion: the girl is a typical trio, gray mediocrity, she has not yet realized the pricelessness of human life, and therefore went to her death easily, without regrets. (14) When people sit at the table, they wash their hands before eating. (15) When you touch the high and the sacred, you must first wash the soul from the everyday, vain, dusty, shallow. (16) Cruel and merciless enemies attacked our homeland, and Komsomol members, almost children, began to fight with them. (17) This is called a feat! (18) When they were tortured, tortured, cut, burned, they said nothing to the enemy. (19) And this is also called a feat! (20) A feat that is born of a high awareness of its responsibility to the country, because the enemy can be defeated only this way: by sacrificing your life. (21) I agree that every person has the right to his point of view, I know that the worst enemy of all progress are not critics, but steadfast "supporters". (22) But the whole question is who carries the knowledge. (23) If people who have no love for their homeland, who do not know what heroism is, reflect on the essence of patriotism, then it will be the same as if sea ramps philosophized in the pitch darkness of the eternal underwater night.

(1) I saw it on a suburban dance floor. (2) A cheerful, horned-nosed, flexible, with a purple tint of black eyes, he invited her to dance with such a brutal, greedy look that she was frightened even by looking at him with the miserable, confused look of an ugly girl who did not expect attention. (3) – What are you, what are you! (4) – Solve it? – he repeated insistently and showed large white teeth with a smile. (5) – I will be very nice. (6) She looked around, as if in search of help, quickly wiped her fingers with a handkerchief, said with a hem: (7) – Probably, we will fail. (8) I’m bad. (9) —Nothing. (10) Please. (11) Sometime. (12) The handsome man danced impassively, dandy and, full of cold arrogance, did not look at her, she was trampling ineptly, shaking her skirt, aiming intense eyes at his tie, and suddenly threw up her head with a jerk – they stopped dancing around, left the circle, heard a whistle ; apparently they were watched by his friends and made remarks with caustic mockingness, mimicked her movements, shaking and writhing in laughter. (13) Her partner stone depicted a city boyfriend, but she understood everything, all the unforgivable baseness, but did not push it away, did not run out of the circle, just took a hand off his shoulder and, scarcely blushing, tapped his finger on his chest, as usual, knocking on the door . (14) He, surprised, leaned toward her, raised his eyebrows, she slowly looked up to his pupils from bottom to top with an impenetrable-contemptuous expression of an experienced beautiful woman, confident of her irresistibleness, and did not say anything. (15) It is impossible to forget how he changed in the face, then he let go of her and, in confusion, somehow too defiantly led to the column where her friends were standing. (16) She had thick lips, gray and very large, as if sunken, wild eyes. (17) She would be ugly if it were not for dark long eyelashes, almost yellow rye hair and that look from the bottom up, transforming her into a beauty and remained forever in my memory.

(1) In a recent TV program, where there was a lively discussion about the problems of modern education, a fashionable TV star broke out in an angry tirade addressed to teachers.

(3) I confess: I, an elderly man who grew up in the post-war years, were stunned by some wicked public outraged over a shrine. (4) At first, it seemed to me that what was happening – a scene from a movie and a TV star simply played a negative role. (5) But, unfortunately, it was not a film, and, unfortunately, for some reason, no one from the public found it possible to say a word in defense of the teachers. (6). It was April 1947. (7) We, separated from the war with our fathers, grew without a king in our heads, not recognizing any laws or rules. (8) Hunger, constant deprivation, harsh living conditions – all this left its mark on our characters. (9) Then it was considered normal to show your disregard for the teachers in every possible way, and the more arrogantly you behaved, the more you were respected in the boyish company. (10) Physics teacher Ivan V. Matveyev came to us in the seventh grade. (11) He walked slowly, with effort leaning on his wand, and when he accidentally touched the corner of the desk with his wounded leg, his face trembled slightly from the pain. (12) At the end of the month, he received a return and returned from work. (13) He was met by a local gang to take away the money. (14) The teacher, a short, burly man, shifted his wand from his right hand to his left, then with two fingers — fore and middle — gently tapped the leader on his upper lip. (15) He collapsed on the ground, the teacher looked at the stupid brigands and stumbled on. (16) The news that the teacher, jokingly, scattered the whole gang, instantly spread throughout the town, and since Ivan Vasilyevich led physics in our class, all seventh-graders considered themselves to some degree or other to this feat. (17) We even mastered several characteristic gestures of our teacher, began to speak slowly, protractedly, with our appearance showing that the teacher shared with us secret techniques and now God forbid anyone to offend us. (18) Once I saw Ivan Vasilyevich, going down from the school porch, gave a hand to a mathematics teacher following him. (19) That reddened embarrassed and thanked the physicist. (20) On the same day, in obedience to an unaccountable desire to be like a teacher in everything, I gave my mother a hand as she passed through the shaky ladder through the heating main. (21) Mom smiled in surprise, then hugged me and said, looking tenderly with moist eyes: “Thank you, dear! (22) You are already quite big with me! ”(23) Trying to seem adults, we began to indulge in tobacco at almost six years old. (24) But when they realized that our teacher did not smoke, many, including myself, left this habit. (25) Once Petka Fedorov cursed with obsity – the usual thing for us. (26) Ivan Vasilyevich, having heard the indecent word, whispered Petka: (27) – This is called man’s weakness. (28) Since then, I have diligently avoided obscene words in my speech. (29) Mentally looking back over the past years, I understand how much this great person gave me a lot of the right, the wise and the necessary. (30) Even today I still want to hold on to his strong hand, which leads me along the road of life.
