It is impossible for one man both to labor day and night to get a living, and at the same time give himself to the study of sacred learning as the preaching office requires.

-Martin Luther
Martin Luther

The Pope is a mere tormentor of conscience. The assembly of his greased and religious crew in praying was altogether like the croaking of frogs, which edified nothing at all.

Martin Luther
None can believe how powerful prayer is, and what it is able to effect, but those who have learned it by experience.
Martin Luther

I have so much to do today that I must set apart more time than usual to pray.

Martin Luther
When the Scripture speaks, God speaks
Martin Luther

We ought not to criticize, explain, or judge the Scriptures by our mere reason, but diligently, with prayer, meditate thereon, and seek their meaning.

Martin Luther
People go through three conversions: The conversion of their head, their heart, and their pocketbook. Unfortunately, not all at the same time.
Martin Luther

Our office...subjects us to great burdens and labors, dangers and temptations, with little reward or gratitude from the world. But Christ himself will be our reward if we labor faithfully.

Martin Luther
Our Lord God doeth work like a printer who setteth the letters backwards; we see and feel well his setting, but we shall see the print yonder - in the life to come.
Martin Luther

Let your holy Angel have charge concerning us, that the wicked one have no power over us.

Martin Luther
Married love burns as fire, and seeks nothing more than the mate. It says, "I want only you"
