  • Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
  • Forgiveness is God's command.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I more fear what is within me than what comes from without.
  • 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.

  • Reason is the enemy of faith.
  • The Lord commonly gives riches to foolish people, to whom he gives nothing else.
  • You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.
