Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen.
      - end of his speech at the Diet of Worms, inscribed on his monument at Worms
        [War]

Human reason is like a drunken man on horseback; set it up on one side, and it tumbles over on the other.
      - [Reason]

I always loved music; whoso has skill in this art, is of a good temperament, fitted for all things. We must teach music in schools. A schoolmaster ought to have skill in music, or I would not regard him; neither should we ordain young men as preachers, unless they have been well exercised in music.
      - [Music]

I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, self.
      - [Conscience]

I do not admit that my doctrine can be judged by anyone.
      - [Doctrine]

I more fear what is within me than what comes from without.
      - [Fear]

I never work better than when I am inspired by anger. When I am angry I can, write, pray, and preach well; for then my whole temperament is quickened, my understanding sharpened, and all mundane vexations and temptations depart.
      - [Anger]

I would not have preachers torment their hearers, and detain them with long and tedious preaching.
      - [Preaching]

I would rather obey than work miracles.
      - [Obedience]

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.
      - [Wisdom]

In His death He is a sacrifice, satisfying for our sins; in the resurrection, a conqueror; in the ascension, a king; in the intercession, a high priest.
      - [Christ]

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
      - [Enemies]

It was with good reason that God commanded through Moses that the vineyard and harvest were not to be gleaned to the last grape or grain; but something to be left for the poor. For covetousness is never to be satisfied; the more it has, the more it wants. Such insatiable ones injure themselves, and transform God's blessings into evil.
      - [Covetousness]

Jews and papists are ungodly wretches; they are two stockings made of one piece of cloth.
      - [Religion]

Let all your preaching be in the most simple and plainest manner; look not to the prince, but to the plain, simple, gross, unlearned people, of which cloth the prince also himself is made. If I, in my preaching, should have regard to Philip Melancthon and other learned doctors, then should I do but little good. I preach in the simplest manner to the unskillful, and that giveth content to all. Hebrew, Greek and Latin I spare until we learned ones come together.
      - [Preaching]

Lord God, I thank Thee that Thou hast been pleased to make me a poor and indigent man upon earth. I have neither house nor land nor money, to leave behind me. Thou hast given me wife and children, whom I now restore to Thee. Lord, nourish, teach, and preserve them as Thou hast me.
      - [Poverty]

Medicine makes people ill, mathematics makes them sad, and theology makes them sinful.
      - [Mathematics : Medicine : Theology]

Men have broad and large chests, and small narrow hips, and more understanding than women, who have but small and narrow breasts, and broad hips, to the end they should remain at home, sit still, keep house, and bear and bring up children.
      - [Women]

Men must have righteous principles in the first place, and then they will not fail to perform virtuous actions.
      - [Principles]

Merit is a work for the sake of which Christ gives rewards. But no such work is to be found, for Christ gives by promise. Just as if a prince should say to me, "Come to me in my castle, and I will give you a hundred florins." I do a work, certainly, in going to the castle, but the gift is not given me as the reward of my work in going, but because the prince promised it to me.
      - [Merit]

Music is a discipline, and a mistress of order and good manners; she makes the people milder and gentler, more moral and more reasonable.
      - [Music]

Music is one of the fairest and most glorious gifts of God, to which Satan is a bitter enemy; for it removes from the heart the weight of sorrow, and the fascination of evil thoughts.
      - [Music]

Music is the art of the prophets, the only art that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.
      - [Music]

Next to theology I give to music the highest place and honor. And we see how David and all the saints have wrought their godly thoughts into verse, rhyme, and song.
      - [Music]

No gown worse becomes a woman than the desire to be wise.
      - [Wisdom]
