All I know is that this substitution of persons stops with
you, because nothing
can be substituted for you, and because for me it was for all
eternity that this
succession of terrible and charming enigmas was to come to
an end at your feet.
You are not an enigma for me.
I say that you have turned me from enigmas forever.
— André Breton, from Nadja. (Grove Press January 11, 1994) Originally published 1928.
