Now be resolute and turn your back (from Faust)by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
English version by Peter Salm
Original Language German
Now be resolute and turn your back
on our earth's endearing sun!
Be bold and brash and force the gates
from which men shrink and slink away!
Approach the brink serenely and accept the risk
of melting into nothingness.
|-- from Faust, by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe / Translated by Peter Salm|
