Luther Quote: Dancing Camels

“To me it is often a source of great pleasure and wonderment to see that the entire female body was created for the purpose of nurturing children.  How prettily even little girls carry babies [in their arms!]  As for the mothers themselves, how deftly they move whenever the whimpering baby either has to be quieted or is to be placed into its cradle!  Get a man to do the same things, and you will say that a camel is dancing, so clumsily will he do the simplest tasks around a baby!”      Luther’s Works V 1, p. 202
