God is entirely and personally present in the wilderness, in the garden, in the field.

Martin Luther
In a mouse we admire God's creation and craft work. The same may be said about flies.
Martin Luther

The first thing I ask is that people should not make use of my name, and should not call themselves Lutherans but Christians. What is Luther? The teaching is not mine. Nor was I crucified for anyone...How did I, poor stinking bag of maggots that I am, come to the point where people call the children of Christ by my evil name?

Martin Luther

Martin Luther

Thus my learning is not my own; it belongs to the unlearned and is the debt I owe themMy wisdom belongs to the foolish, my power to the oppressed. Thus my wealth belongs to the poor, my righteousness to the sinners.

Martin Luther

Martin Luther

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
Grant that I may not pray alone with the mouth; help me that I may pray from the depths of my heart.
