Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I nothing had, and yet enough for youth–Joy in Illusion, ardent thirst for Truth. Give unrestrained, the old emotion, The bliss that touched the verge of pain, The strength of Hate, Love’s deep devotion,–O, give me back my youth again! ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust: First Part. (Bantam Books; Reissue edition August 1, 1988) Originally published 1808.
