Luther quotes

There is a great difference between faith and good works, just as vast as the difference in value between the tree and the fruit. Fruits disappear and return each year, but the tree remains always. Faith also remains always, but works disappear. In such a shameful way they have misled and deceived us that we go looking for good works and fruit when we should be looking for faith and tree.” Martin Luther, The Adoration of the Sacrament, LW, AE, 36:289
