There is no gown or garment that worse becomes a woman than when she will be wise.

All who call on God in true faith...will certainly be heard.

Martin Luther
We are saved by faith alone, but the faith that saves is never alone.
Martin Luther

This letter [to the Romans] is truly the most important piece in the New Testament. It is purest Gospel. It is well worth a Christian's while not only to memorize it word for word but also to occupy himself with it daily, as though it were the daily bread of the soul. It is impossible to read or to meditate on this letter too much or too well. The more one deals with it, the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes.

Martin Luther
We must meet hate with love. We must meet physical force with soul force.
Martin Luther

War is the greatest plague that can afflict humanity, it destroys religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge is preferable to it.

Martin Luther
When I am angry I can pray well and preach well.
Martin Luther

After the devil himself, there is no worse folk than the pope and his followers.

Martin Luther
Bewilderment is the true comprehension. Not to know where you are going is the true knowledge.
Martin Luther

Whenever the devil harasses you, seek the company of men or drink more, or joke and talk nonsense, or do some other merry thing. Sometimes we must drink more, sport, recreate ourselves, and even sin a little to spite the devil, so that we leave him no place for troubling our consciences with trifles. We are conquered if we try too conscientiously not to sin at all. So when the devil says to you: do not drink, answer him: I will drink, and right freely, just because you tell me not to.

Martin Luther
Christians are to be taught that the pope would and should wish to give of his own money, even though he had to sell the basilica of St. Peter, to many of those from whom certain hawkers of indulgences cajole money.
