Luther, early 1530's:
World, death, devil, hell, away and leave me in peace! You have no hold on me. If you will not let me live, then I will die. But you won't succeed in that. Chop my head off, and it won't harm me. I have One who will give me a new one.
--Off the Record with Martin Luther: An Original Translation of the Table Talks (trans. Charles Daudert; Hansa-Hewlett 2009), 402
