Was anders suche zu
Des Chaos wunderlicher Sohn!
Seek something else to undertake,
You, Chaos' odd, fantastic son!
This is another quote that many people use, even though
quite often far from this context. It is easy to imagine
the situation people use it. The context we have here
is the following: Mephistopheles complains that he was
not able to reduce everything to its initial state, the
nothing. After everything he has tried to achieve his
goal, life is always reborn. It is impossible for him
to destroy the entity and now he tries to destroy separate
parts. Then Faust tells him that it would be more valuable
to do something else. He calls him the son of chaos, because
before God created, the earth was chaos.
