The Devil and Tom Walker
"The Devil and Tom Walker" is a short story by Washington Irving that first appeared in his 1824 collection Tales of a Traveller, as part of the "Money-Diggers" section. The story is very similar to the German legend of Faust. More at Wikipedia
You can type the title into your favorite search engine and find that quote and a bazillion links to sites with more info, notes, and stuff like that. Nobody here is going to read the book for you or try to explain impressions that you are supposed to get by yourself.
Of course if you can express exactly what help you need, then someone here might have an answer for you.
