Music is a discipline, and a mistress of order and good manners, she makes the people milder and gentler, more moral and more reasonable.

Martin Luther

Martin Luther

Heaven and earth, all the emperors, kings, and princes of the world, could not raise a fit dwelling-place for God; yet, in a weak human soul, that keeps His Word, He willingly resides.

Martin Luther
True humility does not know that it is humble. If it did, it would be proud from the contemplation of so fine a virtue.
Martin Luther

No greater mischief can happen to a Christian people, than to have God's word taken from them, or falsified, so that they no longer have it pure and clear. God grant we and our descendants be not witness to such a calamity.

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

God is in all creatures, even in the smallest flowers.

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

The soul can do without everything except the word of God, without which none at all of its wants are provided for.

Martin Luther
A religion that gives nothing, costs nothing, and suffers nothing, is worth nothing.
