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

Martin Luther

Anyone who is to find Christ must first find the church. How could anyone know where Christ is and what faith is in him unless he knew where his believers are?

Martin Luther
The Bible is the proper book for men. There the truth is distinguished from error far more clearly than anywhere else, and one finds something new in it every day. For twenty-eight years, since I became a doctor, I have now constantly read and preached the Bible; and yet I have not exhausted it but find something new in it every day.
Martin Luther

The inner man cannot be forced to do out of his own free will, what he should do, except the grace of God change the heart and make it willing.

Martin Luther
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. But one hundred years later, we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still not free.
Martin Luther

Even if all the world were to combine forces, they could not bring about the conception of a single child in any woman's womb nor cause it to be born; that is wholly the work of God.

Martin Luther
Rest in the Lord; wait patiently for Him. In Hebrew, "Be silent in God, and let Him mould thee." Keep still, and He will mould thee to the right shape.
Martin Luther

Human nature is like a drunk peasant. Lift him into the saddle on one side, over he topples on the other side.

Martin Luther
What would it matter if, for the sake of the Christian Church, one were to tell a big lie?
Martin Luther

Astrology is framed by the devil, to the end people may be scared from entering into the state of matrimony, and from every divine and human office and calling.

Martin Luther
Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
