Nocte iube me dormire.
Now I think he means something like 'At night I must sleep'. But 'Iube' is Imperative (active) so is 'iube' like 'necesse' in necesse est (and is the 'necesse' in 'necesse est' an imperative?)? - I never thought about it.
Strictly speaking it seems to make no sense. 'Iube' is an order. Yet he's referring to himself.
