„I do not love the Sabbath,
The soapsuds and the starch,
The troops of solemn people
Who to Salvation march.“

— Robert Graves
Context: I do not love the Sabbath, The soapsuds and the starch, The troops of solemn people Who to Salvation march. I take my book, I take my stick On the Sabbath day, In woody nooks and valleys I hide myself away. To ponder there in quiet God's Universal Plan, Resolved that church and Sabbath Were never made for man. "The Boy out of Church".

„Love, Fear and Hate and Childish Toys
Are here discreetly blent“

„Wisdom made him old and wary
Banishing the Lords of Faery.“

„I, Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus … this, that and the other“

— Robert Graves
Context: I, Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus … this, that and the other (for I shall not trouble you yet with all my titles), 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 ‘Claudius the Stammerer’, or ‘Clau-Clau-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. Ch. 1.

„We forget cruelty and past betrayal,
Heedless of where the next bright bolt may fall.“

— Robert Graves
Context: But we are gifted, even in November, Rawest of seasons, with so huge a sense Of her nakedly worn magnificence We forget cruelty and past betrayal, Heedless of where the next bright bolt may fall. "The White Goddess," lines 18–22, from Poems and Satires (1951).
