Advice Luther Gave, and then Never Lived

15 Oct

When it falleth out that two goats meet upon a narrow plank or bridge that is laid over a deep water; how do they behave themselves? neither of them can turn back again, neither can they pass the one by the other, because the bridge is too narrow; if they should thrust one another, then they might both fall into the water and be drowned, nature hath taught them, that the one layeth himself down and permitteth the other to go over him; so that thereby they both remain without hurt. Even so people should rather endure to be trod upon, than to fall into debate and discord one with another. — Martin Luther

As though Luther ever lay down and avoided debate and discord.  As though it were even possible for him to do it.
