Martin Luther Quote
“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
Probably apocryphal. The earliest reference for this quote was found in a letter of the Hessian Church from October 1944.
“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.”
