Amy Grant quotes (32)

Anybody who's ever gone through a hard time - any outsider's perception, no matter how much information they're given, they have no idea what the person's life is like.
Amy Grant   Category:

But my experience is that people who have been through painful, difficult times are filled with compassion.
Amy Grant   Category:

But now it's kind of a given that a 15-year-old would have a record deal and sell a quarter of a million records. No one's expecting her to answer any deep theological questions. And I'll tell you, I was asked some deep theological questions from the git-go.
Amy Grant   Category:

But to make a holiday record that involves favorite American songs and then also get to sing about Jesus birth, it just seemed like a real easy, subtle way to combine a couple of things that I love.
Amy Grant   Category:

Come Christmas Eve, we usually go to my mom and dad's. Everybody brings one gift and then we play that game when we all steal it from each other. Some are really cool, others are useful and some are a bit out there.
Amy Grant   Category:

Depending on what day of the week it is and what time of the month it is, I'm a good friend or not a good friend. I'm more or less a good mom or not a good mom, more or less a good mate or not a good mate. That's just life, whether or not you're public.
Amy Grant   Category:

Do I think all contemporary Christian music is good? No.
Amy Grant   Category:

Every good relationship, especially marriage, is based on respect. If it's not based on respect, nothing that appears to be good will last very long.
Amy Grant   Category:

Everybody's entitled to think whatever they want and to express that, but my personal day-to-day experience does not come into contact with any of those people.
Amy Grant   Category:

For me, the backdrop of half the experiences of life includes music.
Amy Grant   Category:

I can look at the future with anticipation. And it's comforting to know that someday, as Christians, we'll be able to look back and have a little more clarity on why certain things in life happened.
Amy Grant   Category:

I can look back at different times in my life when I felt I could not find my way out of whatever it was. I'm not necessarily talking about marriage, but I wanted to pack it in. I wanted to disappear. A lot of that has to do with being in the public eye.
Amy Grant   Category:

I did the best I could, and in some arenas, my best was not good enough. I've made some bad choices.
Amy Grant   Category:

I feel a part of the congregation. I've never had to do special music. The kids sing in the choir. It's just normal. We're treated like everybody else.
Amy Grant   Category:

I just think people should find the music that helps them through the day and enjoy that. I've never felt like, if somebody does or doesn't like what I'm doing, it's a morality issue.
Amy Grant   Category:

I love being with my children. They're fascinating people.
Amy Grant   Category:

I think for a woman, the hardest thing about growing old is becoming invisible. There's something very front and center about being young.
Amy Grant   Category:

I think that if my kids are completely convinced of God's unfailing love for them, whether they fail or not, they'll have confidence to persevere in life.
Amy Grant   Category:

I was taught a lot of Bible at home and had a voracious appetite for reading the Bible.
Amy Grant   Category:

I'm frustrated by something, it's my fault for exposing myself to it in the first place. The rumor mill always seemed like a grass fire to me. Why walk out in the middle of the field, it's just going to flame out and go away just like everything else does?
Amy Grant   Category:

I'm not anxious to be anywhere other than where I am right now.
Amy Grant   Category:

I've found that music allows years to fold like an accordion over each other, so I guess you don't feel the passage of time as much.
Amy Grant   Category:

If you went to your closet today, would you pull out the same outfit you wore 10 or 15 years ago? You wear feelings and faith differently as well.
Amy Grant   Category:

In the past, when I'd recorded during a break in a tour, it was so easy to sing, because I felt strong. Also, like so many new mothers, I wasn't getting a lot of sleep, and sleeping is such a huge part of being able to sing.
Amy Grant   Category:

It's human nature to be curious about people, and to be more curious about young people than old people. We want to cheer something on at the same time we want to tear it down. That's just so normal.
Amy Grant   Category:

Life goes by really fast, and it seems that there are times when you're burying a lot of friends and family. And then there are times that feel really precious and everybody is doing okay. This is one of those times.
Amy Grant   Category:

Since I travel so much, it's always great to be home. There's nothing like getting to raid my own refrigerator at two in the morning.
Amy Grant   Category: Home

The fact of the matter is, when I'm on tour, I'm juggling so hard to keep all the balls in the air that I don't often get to really enjoy what I'm out there doing.
Amy Grant   Category:

The people I've been exposed to have been people of amazing integrity.
Amy Grant   Category:

There's a beauty to wisdom and experience that cannot be faked. It's impossible to be mature without having lived.
Amy Grant   Category: Experience

Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there's shadow - no, not just shadow, but fullness. You've got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that's real.
Amy Grant   Category:

You have to treat people gently because we're all in a process. What might seem like a good idea to somebody at 21 is probably not going to seem like a good idea at 50, but you don't know that until you get there.
