Luther: Ruined with Christ

If we perish then Christ the Almighty Ruler of the world himself must suffer with us. Even if this cause were to collapse, I would much rather be ruined with Christ than rule with Caesar.

--Martin Luther, in 'Sayings in Which Luther Found Comfort,' in Luther's Works, 43:172 ('this cause' = the sixteenth-century Reformation)
