The young girl was so buoyant that she made all of us feel crushed.

Queequeg started dressing by putting his hat on, then--still minus his pants--he looked for his boots. He crushed himself under the bed when I inferred he was booting himself, though by no law of manners is any man required to be private when putting on his boots.
(Adapted from Ch 4, Moby Dick)

I inferred from our conversation that he will sing a song at Christmas this year.

A little less conversation, a little more action, was what I felt obliged to say to those two trainees who spent two hours chatting over a cold cup of coffee after lunch, but they didn't seem I was to be taken seriously.

Well, was it because of my clumsy English? Anyway, I know I'm still a trainee in English learning, but by the by not at all in navigation. I am quite an experienced sailor; I can steer a pair of oars well during the waves, I can perform flamenco and tango on swing deck, and, not boasting, I can dialogue with dolphins and seagulls.

I once read a Marvel's Thor parody only with Egypt instead of Nordic mythology that a character had to steer the Solar System.

Seriously, could you watch the Prince of Egypt until its very end and not shed a single tear?

"Maybe 'to steer a pair of oars' is awkward and should be better replaced with 'to steer a boat with a pair of oars'."
After muttering this in annoyance, his tears started to fall along his cheeks. But soon the strong seawind blew them dry.

The beggars from this town never say anything clearly, they only mutter. I ALWAYS ask "what" even knowing what they want because I'm that dumb.

There was only one guesthouse in this small town, with only one room still available. And that's how I got acquainted with Ben. Moonlight flew in through the window when we started our polite, social chat, and I didn't expect this occasional talk, with a casual beginning, would have changed my life from then on.

Under the beautiful moonlight, we sat by the campfire and roasted marshmallows.

Don't be mistaken - Jannipäev, Estonian celebration, is about bonfire and not campfire - don't go telling Estonians they have to jump over the bonfire, you'll be making yourself enemies.

On 23 August 1989, approximately two million of Estonians, Latvians, and Lithuanians joined their hands across their homelands to form a human chain which spanned more than six hundred kilometers. It was a peaceful political demonstration and was called the Baltic Chain or Chain of Freedom. (Adapted from wikipedia)

The average life span of a mouse is shorter than a turtle.

The turtle was feasting on kelp and posidonia when a Portuguese man o' war bumped into her whilst sailing the most whimsical gales of the Atlantic.

The Portuguese men o' war laughed mischievously as they hid behind a large algae leaf so that the thick moon fish, swimming around hungry for a snack, could not see them.

I was swimming against the stream when I realized I had forgotten my umbrella.

With perfunctory derring-do, I ventured outside without an umbrella. The pluvious gales were ululating against my whey face. I tried to plough through the inundated byway that petered into the city, but suddenly, like a schlemiel, I fell into a pond that I hadn't realized was there. Two kids looking at me through the sash window of their house, cachinnated in a way that sounded almost like a threnody.

Will you be my schlemiel? And let me be your schlimazel.
(A schlemiel is an inept, clumsy person. The term is often presented alongside schlimazel, an chronically unlucky person. A Yiddish saying explains that "a schlemiel is somebody who often spills his soup and a schlimazel is the person it lands on".
Both schlemiel and schlimazel are English words of Yiddish origin, and so is bagel.)
