Context

“«Yes, but it is hard for us to imagine eternity,» remarked Dimmler, who had joined the young folk with a mildly condescending smile but now spoke as quietly and seriously as they.
«Why is it hard to imagine eternity?» said Natásha. «It is now today, and it will be tomorrow, and always; and there was yesterday, and the day before….»
«Natásha! Now it's your turn. Sing me something,» they heard the countess say. «Why are you sitting there like conspirators?»
«Mamma, I don't at all want to,» replied Natásha, but all the same she rose.” source
