This amazing book is set in Geneva, Switzerland, where, as I understand it, the majority of people speak German. So can someone please translate this line?

I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe

Thank you in advance.

The line isn't actually from the book, but from the film adaptation.

I'll wait for one of our German native-speakers to render this before attempting it myself.
