Luther

Did you know that Martin Luther did not went to monestary and became a priest because he was almost thunderstruck. Our teacher used this funny explanation in school and I was deeply impressed by it when I was a boy.

Much more later I read a book about important historical persons. This book contained an excerpt about the “Luthers Tischreden”, a script of speeches he made during daily dinners. One of the students living in Luthers house wrote down the speeches. And there you can read the explanation of Luther himself!

Why he went to menestary in Luthers words: “My parents were so grim in education that I fleed in the arms of the priests. One day I was beaten almost to blood becaus of some stolen cherries!”

It was all a matter of education, something psychological. It had nothing to do with luck or god.
