Is parchment then the sacred fount (from Faust)by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
English version by Peter Salm
Original Language German
Is parchment then the sacred fount
from which a draught will quench our thirst forever?
You must draw it from your inward soul
or else you'll not be satisfied.
|-- from Faust, by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe / Translated by Peter Salm|
