Sentence 3: "I, Tiberius Claudius . . ., who was once, and not so long ago either, known to my friends and relatives and associates as "Claudius the Idiot," or "that Claudius," . . . or at best as "Poor Uncle Claudius," am now about to write this strange history of my life; starting from my earliest childhood and continuing year by year until I reach the fateful point of change where, some eight years ago, at the age of fifty-one, I suddenly found myself caught in what I may call the "golden predicament" from which I have never since become disentangled." --I, Claudius, by Robert Graves (opening sentence)
