Michael Card Notable Quotes:

  • - "Imagination is this bridge between your head and your heart. It's the pathway that the Holy Spirit crosses back and forth on." (from an interview with Patheos.com)

  • - "Seeing ourselves through the eyes of grace frees us to be for others all we need to be. When I am free, most especially of the tyranny of my self-centeredness, then the door of my life can really open out to the otherness of my brothers and sisters. (from an interview with Christianbook.com)

  • - " One of the most important lessons the Lord has taught me is that you are not your gift. That is, you are not defined by what you do or create. Jesus is a wonderful example of this. He would not allow the crowd to define Him by His considerable gifts, even though they tried to do so. Jesus always points away from Himself and His gifts and thereby wins praise for the Father. We are not our gifts. We are called to give more. Like Jesus, we are called to give ourselves. That is the real purpose behind our gifts; they are vehicles for giving the self." (from an interview with Tabletalk Magazine)
