Luther on Chastity and Happiness

"Few are the women and maidens today that even think they can be happy and chaste at the same time. Their tongues are sharp and coarse, their behavior is worldly and unchaste. This is the lifestyle that is 'in' today. Yet chastity and happiness should and could stand side by side, if they would but behold this example [of the Virgin Mary]."

Sermon for The Visitation, House Postils, v. 4, p. 346
