For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.

The reproduction of mankind is a great marvel and mystery. Had God consulted me in the matter, I should have advised him to continue the generation of the species by fashioning them out of clay.

Martin Luther
If you want to interpret well and confidently, set Christ before you, for He is the man to whom it all applies, every bit of it.
Martin Luther

I am much afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labour in explaining the Holy Scriptures, and engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which means are not unceasingly occupied with the Word of God must be corrupt.

Martin Luther
Divinity consists in use and practice, not in speculation.
Martin Luther

We will win our freedom because the sacred heritage of our nation and the eternal will of God are embodied in our echoing demands.

Martin Luther
Science gives man knowledge which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control.
Martin Luther

God's love gives in such a way that it flows from a Father's heart, the well-spring of all good. The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious; as among ourselves we say of even a trifling gift, "It comes from a hand we love," and look not so much at the gift as at the heart.

Martin Luther
Women should remain at home, sit still, keep house, and bear and bring up children...If a woman grows weary and, at last, dies from childbearing, it matters not. Let her die from bearing - she is there to do it.
Martin Luther

Isaiah calls the Church barren because her children are born without effort by the Word of faith through the Spirit of God. It is a matter of birth, not of exertion.

Martin Luther
Stubbornness should have been my middle name.
