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
