Goethe’s Faust – God speaks with Mephistopheles:

God:
Have you nothing else to name?
Do you always come here to complain?
Does nothing ever go right on the Earth? 295

Mephistopheles:
No, Lord! I find, as always, it couldn’t be worse.
Im so involved with Mans wretched ways,
Ive even stopped plaguing them, myself, these days.
