The learned Faust

Habe nun, ach! Philosophie,
Juristerei und Medizin
und leider auch Theologie
durchaus studiert mit heißem Bemühn.
Da steh’ ich nun, ich armer Tor!
und bin so klug als wie zufor....

I have now, alas, studied thoroughly,
With strenuous effort,
Philosophy, law and medicine
And unfortunately even theology.
Thus I now stand, I poor fool,
and am none the wiser....

—Goethe, Faust I.
