Mankind has a free will; but it is free to milk cows and to build houses, nothing more.

-Martin Luther
Martin Luther

The God whom we worship is not a weak and incompetent God. He is able to beat back gigantic waves of opposition and to bring low prodigious mountains of evil. The ringing testimony of the Christian faith is that God is able.

Martin Luther
It's not what I don't know that bothers me - it's what I do know and don't do!
Martin Luther

Martin Luther
Jesus Christ never died for our good works. They were not worth dying for. But he gave himself for our sins, according to the Scriptures.
Martin Luther

God foreknows nothing by contingency, but that He foresees, purposes, and does all things according to His immutable, eternal, and infallible will. By this thunderbolt, "Free-will" is thrown prostrate, and utterly dashed to pieces.

Martin Luther
Sleep is a most useful and most salutary operation of nature. Scarcely any minor annoyance angers me more than the being suddenly awakened out of a pleasant slumber. I understand that in Italy they torture poor people by depriving them of sleep. `Tis a torture that cannot long be endured.
Martin Luther

I do not admit that my doctrine can be judged by anyone.

Martin Luther
I have so much to do today, I'll need to spend another hour on my knees.
Martin Luther

I oppose the war in Vietnam because I love America. I speak out against it not in anger but with anxiety and sorrow in my heart, and above all with a passionate desire to see our beloved country stand as a moral example of the world.

Martin Luther
At Sussen, the Devil carried off, last Good Friday, three grooms who had devoted themselves to him.
