Martin Luther quotes (58)

All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired.
Martin Luther   Category: Faith

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   Category:

Be a sinner and sin strongly, but more strongly have faith and rejoice in Christ.
Martin Luther   Category: Faith

Be thou comforted, little dog, Thou too in Resurrection shall have a little golden tail.
Martin Luther   Category:

Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.
Martin Luther   Category:

Blood alone moves the wheels of history.
Martin Luther   Category:

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Martin Luther   Category:

Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Martin Luther   Category:

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

Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
Martin Luther   Category:

Faith is permitting ourselves to be seized by the things we do not see.
Martin Luther   Category:

Faith must trample under foot all reason, sense, and understanding.
Martin Luther   Category:

First I shake the whole Apple tree, that the ripest might fall. Then I climb the tree and shake each limb, and then each branch and then each twig, and then I look under each leaf.
Martin Luther   Category:

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
Martin Luther   Category: Nature

For where God built a church, there the Devil would also build a chapel.
Martin Luther   Category:

Forgiveness is God's command.
Martin Luther   Category:

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
Martin Luther   Category:

Grant that I may not pray alone with the mouth; help me that I may pray from the depths of my heart.
Martin Luther   Category:

I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.
Martin Luther   Category:

I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, Self.
Martin Luther   Category:

I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.
Martin Luther   Category:

I feel much freer now that I am certain the pope is the Antichrist.
Martin Luther   Category:

I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess.
Martin Luther   Category:

I more fear what is within me than what comes from without.
Martin Luther   Category:

I shall never be a heretic; I may err in dispute, but I do not wish to decide anything finally; on the other hand, I am not bound by the opinions of men.
Martin Luther   Category:

If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.
Martin Luther   Category:

If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don't want to go there.
Martin Luther   Category:

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

If you young fellows were wise, the devil couldn't do anything to you, but since you aren't wise, you need us who are old.
Martin Luther   Category:

Justice is a temporary thing that must at last come to an end; but the conscience is eternal and will never die.
Martin Luther   Category:

Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.
Martin Luther   Category: Marriage

Music is the art of the prophets and the gift of God.
Martin Luther   Category:

My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.
Martin Luther   Category:

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

Nothing good ever comes of violence.
Martin Luther   Category:

Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.

Martin Luther   Category:

People must have righteous principals in the first, and then they will not fail to perform virtuous actions.

Pray, and let God worry.
Martin Luther   Category:

Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian weapon.

Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has.

The reproduction of mankind is a great marvel and mystery. Had God consulted me in the matter, I should have advised him to continue the generation of the species by fashioning them out of clay.
Martin Luther   Category:

The will is a beast of burden. If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills; if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills; Nor can it choose its rider... the riders contend for its possession.
Martin Luther   Category:

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
