„Ich bin der Geist, der stets verneint!
Und das mit Recht; denn alles, was entsteht,
Ist wert, dass es zugrunde geht;
Drum besser wär’s, dass nichts entstünde.
So ist denn alles, was ihr Sünde,
Zerstörung, kurz das Böse nennt,
Mein eigentliches Element.“

Mephistopheles // Goethe – Faust, der Trägodie erster Teil

I am the Spirit that denies!
And rightly too; for all that doth begin
Should rightly to destruction run;
‚Twere better then that nothing were begun.
Thus everything that you call Sin,
Destruction – in a word, as Evil represent-
That is my own, real element.

Mephistopheles // Goethe – Faust: The First Part of the Tragedy

These little yellow books by Reclam Publishing are known to every student in germany. The company releases those with every piece of classic literature you can Imagine: Schiller, Lessing, Goethe, Homer, Wilde, Milton, Shakespeare and many many more. Most important part about those is that they are cheap. You can pick them up starting at 2 Euros (but therefor the print is pretty small). I got a couple of those in school, but I really started to need them in university. I was reading about 3 to 5 of those a week, so you can imagine, how many I got.
