Is it not wonderful news to believe that salvation lies outside ourselves?

Martin Luther

When I was a child there were many witches, and they bewitched both cattle and men, especially children.

Martin Luther
There is no wisdom save in truth. Truth is everlasting, but our ideas about truth are changeable. Only a little of the first fruits of wisdom, only a few fragments of the boundless heights, breadths and depths of truth, have I been able to gather.
Martin Luther

Either sin is with you, lying on your shoulders, or it is lying on Christ, the Lamb of God.

Martin Luther
If you could understand a single grain of wheat you would die of wonder.
Martin Luther

Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.

Martin Luther
Drive them [Jews] like mad dogs from our land... let not one of them live...
Martin Luther

Amen meaneth assuredly, namely, that I am sure that petitions of this kind are accepted by my Heavenly Father, and heard by him, because he hath commanded us, that we should pray after this manner, and hath promised that he will hear us. Amen, Amen: that is, truly, certainly, so be it.

Martin Luther
As concerning faith we ought to be invincible, and more hard, if it might be, than the adamant stone; but as touching charity, we ought to be soft, and more flexible than the reed or leaf that is shaken with the wind, and ready to yield to everything.
Martin Luther

There is no justification without sanctification, no forgiveness without renewal of life, no real faith from which the fruits of new obedience do not grow.

Martin Luther
Love is an image of God, and not a lifeless image, but the living essence of the divine nature which beams full of all goodness.
