“Help! This was my last cry. My mouth filled with water, I struggled against being drawn the abyss. Suddenly my clothes were seized by a strong hand, and I felt myself quickly drawn up to the surface of the sea; and I heard, yes, I heard these words pronounced in my ear: If master would be so good as to lean on my shoulder, master would swim with much greater ease. I seized with one hand my faithful Conseil s arm. Is it you? said I, you? Myself, answered Conseil; and waiting master s orders. That shock threw you as well as me in the sea? No; but, being in my master s service, I followed him. The worthy fellow thought that was but natural.”

“The adjective “Faustian” describes the insatiable striving for the unattainable, the impossible, for all knowledge and all power, for the infinite and perfect. The Faustian human will bow to no tyrant God. He will worship no God. He will never be a slave, servant or serf. He will have no lord and no master. Religious people regard Faust as having “sold his soul to the Devil”. In fact, Faust liberated his soul from the Devil (the Abrahamic God) so that he himself could become a God.”
