Martin Luther: Well, God once spoke through the mouth of an ass, and...
Martin Luther: Perhaps he is about to do so again. But...
[leaves his rostrum and starts walking around in the classroom. The students follow him very interested with their eyes]
Martin Luther: I will tell you straight what I think. Who here has been to Rome?
