Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“I am the spirit that negates.
And rightly so, for all that comes to be
Deserves to perish wretchedly;
'Twere better nothing would begin.
Thus everything that that your terms, sin,
Destruction, evil represent—
That is my proper element.”


Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust - Part One
