The spot chosen must be respected

There must be differences of taste here as elsewhere. The spot chosen must be respected, not only because it was the home for the time, however short, but also because here was privacy, ray bans sunglasses
and it was not right that such should be at any time invaded, if rightly and obviously sought--at least, so was it judged by those who inhabited the island at this period. That Murphy noticed all these things goes without saying. He kept them mostly to himself, after the manner of his kind; but he watched nevertheless closely, his black eyebrows moving continually just above his eyes, as he lay in the rough grass in the shade of the pollard willows, or beneath the whispering aspens.

After a while he began to grow stronger and more comely, his ears darkened, and his eyes--put in, as they say, with a dirty thumb--grew larger, taking on that exceeding brightness that made passers-by look and look again.

The old horse in the shafts knew the ways of the dogs well, and would shorten his pace, and indeed pull up altogether, if a thoughtless one was likely to be injured. It was probably from this that Murphy suffered all his life from a mistaken notion that it was the duty of horses, as well as drivers of all kinds, to get out of his way, and not he necessarily out of theirs.
