First Paragraph

Petronius did his best. He wasn't a bad fellow at heart, though he had the foulest mind in Rome and drank like a camel. And he was such an expert in the art of modern living that the Emperor never dared buy a vase or a statue, or even sample an unfamiliar vintage, without his advice. 

- From Epics Are Out of Fashion, a short story by Robert Graves
