"Faust" its written by "Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe”. It is one of the most acclaimed work of Goethe and one of the most eminent works in German literature. Faust is written in two parts Part I is in the form of poem 4612 lines long.
The story starts with the devil making a bet with God that he can deflect his (i.e Gods) favorite human from the righteous path. Later on Mephistopheles (devil) makes a wager with Faust : Mephistopheles will do everything that Faust wants while he’s on earth. If during that time, Faust is pleased with anything the devil gives him that he wants to stay in that moment forever, he will do the devil's bidding in hell. Rest is for you all to read this is the basic setting of the plot ;) Following are the Quotes which I liked::
One meets by accident, emotes and linger,
And by and by one is entangled,
One’s bill increases, then one is in trouble;
One’s rapture grows, then follows grief and pain.
I have studied philosophy,,
The law as well as medicine,
And to my sorrow, theology;
Studied them well with ardent zeal,
Yet here I am, a wretched fool,
No wiser than I was before.
We bow in reverence to him above,
The Lord instructs and helps the helper.
Why must the stream run dry so soon
And I be parched and thirsty once again?
I am too old for mere amusement
And still too young to be without desire.
I don’t know everything, but I am aware of much
From this earth springs all my joys;
It’s the sun that shines on all my sorrows.
Once I must take my leave of them,
Then come what may, it is of no concern.
Precisely where no thought is present
A word appears in proper time.
Words are priceless in an argument.
Words are building stones of systems.
It’s splendid to believe in words;
From words you cannot rob a singe letter.
My peace is gone,
My heart is sore;
I’ll find it never
To be without him
Is like the grave;
The sweet world all
Is turned to gall
