“I will love you as a drawer loves a secret compartment,
and as a secret compartment loves a secret,
and as a secret loves to make a person gasp,
and as a gasping person loves a glass of brandy to calm their nerves,
and as a glass of brandy loves to shatter on the floor,
and as the noise of glass shattering loves to make everyone else gasp,
and as someone else gasping loves a nearby desk to lean against,
even if leaning against it presses a lever that loves to open a drawer
and reveal a secret compartment.
I will love you until all such compartments are opened and discovered,
and until all the secrets have gone gasping into the world.
I will love you until all the codes and hearts
have been broken and until every anagram and egg
has been unscrambled.”
~ Lemony Snicket
