Thus every matter, if it is to be done well, calls for the attention of the whole person.

-Martin Luther
Martin Luther

As long as a man is persuaded that he can make even the smallest contribution to his salvation, he remains self-confident and does not utterly despair of himself, and so is not humbled before God. Such a man plans out for himself a position, an occasion, a work, which shall bring him final salvation, but which will not.

Martin Luther
I cannot forbid a person to marry several wives, for it does not contradict Scripture.
Martin Luther

False preachers are worse than deflowerers of virgins.

Martin Luther
There are three conversions necessary (for the Christian life): the conversion of the heart, the mind, and the purse.
Martin Luther

Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.

Martin Luther
How great, therefore, the wickedness of human nature is! How many girls there are who prevent conception and kill and expel tender fetuses, although procreation is the work of God.
Martin Luther

I have lived to see the greatest plague on earth -- the condemning of God's word, a fearful thing, surpassing all other plagues in the world; for thereupon most surely follow all manner of punishments, eternal and corporal.

Martin Luther
Undoubtedly they do more and viler things than those which we know and discover
Martin Luther

I hate myself, that I cannot believe it so constantly and surely as I should; but no human creature can rightly know how mercifully God is inclined toward those that steadfastly believe in Christ.

Martin Luther
Rough, boisterous, stormy and altogether warlike, I am born to fight against innumerable monsters and devils.
