Martin Luther’s quirky quotes.
“May God punish you, I say, you shameless, barefaced liar, devil’s mouthpiece, who dares to spit out, before God, before all the angels, before the dear sun, before all the world, your devil’s filth.”
From Against the Roman Papacy, an Institution of the Devil, pg. 349 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 41
“For you are an excellent person, as skillful, clever, and versed in Holy Scripture as a cow in a walnut tree or a sow on a harp.”
From Against Hanswurst, pg. 219 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 41
“You are like a magician who conjures gulden into the mouths of silly people, but when they open their mouths they have horse dirt in them.”
From Against the Roman Papacy, an Institution of the Devil, pg. 264 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 41

Final thought from Martin Luther:
“I’m fed up with the world, and it is fed up with me. I’m quite content with that. The world thinks that if it is only rid of me everything will be fine, and it will accomplish this. After all, it’s as I’ve often said: I’m like a ripe stool and the world is like a gigantic anus, and so we’re about to let go of each other.” (Martin Luther, Table Talk, 5537).
