"You should not write a book before you have heard an old sow fart; and then you should open your jaws with awe, saying, 'Thank you, lovely nightingale, that is just the text for me!'" --Martin Luther, cited in Young man Luther: a study in psychoanalysis and history
"Du solltest nicht ehe ein Buch schreiben, du hättest denn ein Forz von einer alten Sau gehöret. Da solltest du dein Maul gegen aufsperren und sagen: Dank habe, du schöne Nachtigall, da höre ich einen Text, der ist für mich."

This quote comes from a pamphlet written by Luther entitled "Wider Hans Worst" directed against Henry V, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg.
