I’ll say fist for the moment

These six words need an explanation.  I had a quote from Goethe’s Faust in mind (one great poet versus another one, answering Debbie’s Shakespeare) when I compiled these photos and was looking for the standard translation into English.  I entered a few keywords in the search mask including the name Faust and English and was rewarded with the above gem of the google translator.

Goethe: Faust I

If ever I to the moment shall say:
Beautiful moment, do not pass away!

Werd ich zum Augenblicke sagen:
Verweile doch! du bist so schön!

The rest of the quotation is actually a denial of the perfect moment, or rather the striving for an ever more perfect one – so I’ll just ignore it for the purpose of this post.
