Mikhail Bulgakov

“Now tell me, but briefly, without wearying me, why you have come." "He sent me." "What did he bid you tell me, slave?" "I am not a slave," Matthu Levi answered with growing rage, "I am his disciple." "We speak different languages, as usual," responded Woland, "but this does not change the things we speak about. Well?..." "He read the Master's work," said Matthu Levi, "and he asks you to take the Master with you and reward him with peace. Is that so difficult for you, spirit of evil?" "Nothing is difficult for me," answered Woland, "and you know it very well." He was silent a while, and added: "and why don't you take him with you, into the light?" "He has not earned light, he earned peace," Levi answered sadly.”
