Collage 670

Obviously, the Russian nest was devastated and destroyed; but beyond the destruction of the Russian order of life, Pierre felt unconsciously that the French had established their own quite different but firm order over this devastated nest...Pierre felt like an insignificant chip of wood fallen into the wheels of a machine unknown to him but functioning well. pp. 962-3
