Faust (1926)
Faust: All things in heaven and on earth are wonderful! But the greatest miracle of all is man's freedom to choose between good and evil!

Faust: We are lost! Belief will not help you, nor shall knowledge! Everything is lies!

Faust: I call thee for help, O Spirit of Darkness: Show thyself! Come forth, evil demon! I call to thee as thou callest thyself, by thy unholy name: MEMPHISTO, appear!

Faust: Deliver me, O elixir of death!

Faust: Every man is free to die!

Mephisto: Poor Faust, why do you seek death when you have not yet lived?
Faust: I hate life!
Mephisto: Your life was only dust and decay! Pleasure is everything!
Faust: I am too old!
Mephisto: I offer you the greatest happiness: Youth! Seize it!

Faust: Damn! Damn the delusion of youth!


Doctor Faustus (1967)
Doctor Faustus: [speaking about Helen of Troy] Was this the face that launched a thousand ships and burnt the topless towers of Illium? Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss!

[Mephistopheles has come to Faustus' study]
Doctor Faustus: Where are you damned?
Mephistopheles: In hell.
Doctor Faustus: How comes it, then, that thou art out of hell?
Mephistopheles: Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it. / Think'st thou that I, who saw the face of God / And tasted the eternal joys of heaven, / Am not tormented with ten thousand hells / In being deprived of everlasting bliss?


Lesson Faust (1994)
Faust: How comes it then that thou art now out of hell with me?
Mefistofele: Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it. Thinks thou that I, who saw the face of God and tasted the eternal joys of heaven, am not tormented with ten thousand hells in being deprived of everlasting bliss?

Mefistofele: Heaven is not so wondrous.
Faust: How so?
Mefistofele: It was made for man, therefore is man much more exquisite.
Faust: If it was made for man, it was made for me! I shall renounce the magic and repent!
