This morning, when I was writing #micropoetry on Twitter, I noticed that #FaustianFriday was trending. In my opinion, this a far better topic than most of what I see trending on there: either everyone is screaming about politics, or a celebrity has died. It’s never good news.

The creative hashtags make for some fun or inspiring topics, however. So, although #FaustianFriday isn’t trending on WordPress, I thought I would share some quotes about those infamous deals made with literary devils. Below are some “Faustian” quotes for my #FridayPhilosophy.

“They made a deal and they liked the deal, until they had to pay the price.” – Brent Weeks

“You can have my soul when I don’t want it anymore.” – V.E. Schwab

“Sometimes a deal with the devil is better than no deal at all.” – Lawrence Hill

“The devil divides the world between atheism and superstition.” – George Herbert

“Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.” – Hama Tuma

“We are our own devils; we drive ourselves out of our Edens.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Happy Friday and blessings to you all.

Faustian #FridayPhilosophy
