Whoever has skill in music is of good temperament and fitted for all things. We must teach music in schools.

Martin Luther
Albert Durer, the famous painter, used to say he had no pleasure in pictures that were painted with many colors, but in those which were painted with a choice simplicity. So it is with me as to sermons.
Martin Luther

I think these things [firearms] were invented by Satan himself, for they can't be defended against with (ordinary) weapons and fists. All human strength vanishes when confronted with firearms. A man is dead before he sees what's coming.

Martin Luther
Blessed is the man that hath not walked in the way of the Sacramentarians, nor sat in the seat of the Zwinglians, nor followed the Council of the Zurichers.
Martin Luther

It is a miracle how God has so long preserved His Book! How great and glorious it is to have the Word of God!

Martin Luther
It is pleasing to God whenever thou rejoices or laughest from the bottom of thy heart
Martin Luther

I do not deny that medicine is a gift of God, nor do I refuse to acknowledge science in the skill of many physicians; but, take the best of them, how far are they from perfection? A sound regimen produces excellent effects. When I feel indisposed, by observing a strict diet and going to bed early, I generally manage to get round again, that is, if I can keep my mind tolerably at rest. I have no objection to the doctors acting upon certain theories, but, at the same time, they must not expect us to be the slaves of their fancies.

Martin Luther
Strange, though I am saved from sin, I am not saved from sinning.
Martin Luther

If you are not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don't want to go there.

Martin Luther
I am not permitted to let my love be so merciful as to tolerate and endure false doctrine. When faith and doctrine are concerned and endangered, neither love nor patience are in order....when these are concerned, neither toleration nor mercy are in order, but only anger, dispute, and destruction - to be sure, only with the Word of God as our weapon.
