“But why speak against yourself?”
“Because only peasants, or the most uggs for kids inexperienced novices deny everything flatly at examinations. If a man is ever so little developed and experienced, he will certainly try to admit all the external facts that can’t be avoided, but will seek other explanations of them, will introduce some special, unexpected turn, that will give them another significance and put them in another light. Porfiry might well reckon that I should be sure to answer so, and say I had seen them to give an uggs on sale air of truth, and then make some explanation.”

“Go in alone!” said Raskolnikov suddenly. “I will be back directly.”
“Where are you going? Why, we are just here.”
“I can’t help it. … I will come in half an hour. Tell them.”
“Say what you like, I will come with you.”
