"You can’t, if you can’t feel it, if it never
Rises from the soul, and sways
The heart of every single hearer,
With deepest power, in simple ways.
You'll sit forever, gluing things together,
Cooking up a stew from other’s scraps,
Blowing on a miserable fire,
Made from your heap of dying ash.
Let apes and children praise your art,
If their admiration’s to your taste,
But you'll never speak from heart to heart,
Unless it rises up from your heart’s space. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part
“Whatever is the lot of human kind
I want to taste within my deepest self.
I want to seize the highest and the lowest,
to load its woe and bliss upon my breast,
and thus expand my single self titanically
and in the end go down with all the rest. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part

And rightly so, for all that comes to be

“You are aware of only one unrest;
Oh, never learn to know the other!
Two souls, alas, are dwelling in my breast,
And one is striving to forsake its brother.
Unto the world in grossly loving zest,
With clinging tendrils, one adheres;
The other rises forcibly in quest
Of rarefied ancestral spheres.
If there be spirits in the air
That hold their sway between the earth and sky,
Descend out of the golden vapors there
And sweep me into iridescent life.
Oh, a magic cloak came into my hands
To carry me to distant lands,
I should not trade it for the choicest gown,
Nor for the cloak and garments of the crown. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, Part One

Strength is the lot of but a few priveledged men; but austere perseverance, harsh and continuous, may be employed by the smallest of us and rarely fails of its purpose, for its silent power grows irresistibly greater with time. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part

Dear kids, I do not take offense;
Recall: the Devil, he is old,
Grow old yourselves, and he'll make sense! "

“I have now, ah! Philosophy,
Law and medicine,
And unfortunately also theology
Thoroughly studied, with ardent effort.
There I stand now, poor fool me!
And am as smart as before;
Hot masters, hot doctor even
And already moving for ten years
Up, down and across and crooked
Fool my students-
And see that we cannot know anything!
It just wants to burn my heart.
I am smarter than all the monkeys
Doctors, masters, clerks and priests;
I have no scruples or doubts
I am not afraid of hell or the devil
For that all of my joy has been torn from me,
Don't imagine what is right to know
Don't think I can teach
To reform and convert people. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust: The tragedy first part
"That which issues from the heart alone,
Will bend the hearts of others to your own. "

“Dear me! how long is art!
And short is our life!
I often know amid the scholar's strife
A sinking feeling in my mind and heart.
How difficult the means are to be found
By which the primal sources may be breached;
And long before the halfway point is reached,
They bury a poor devil in the ground. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part

And rightly so; because everything that arises
it is worth it that it perishes;
So it would be better if nothing happened.
So is all that you sin,
Destruction, in short evil,
My real element. "
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part
