We can all recite those seriously classic Disney quotes. You know, like “a dream is a wish your heart makes” and “hakuna matata” and such. But what about the ones that get left behind? There are some really poignant quotes that just don’t get the same level of love. Here are a few of our favorites…
♫ Rest your head, close to my heart, never to part, baby of mine. ♫ – Dumbo
This scene turns us into sobbing messes every time. Every. Time.
“Man has always learned from the past. After all, you can’t learn history in reverse!” – Archimedes from The Sword in the Stone
Archimedes is super wise.
“I was hiding under your porch because I love you.” – Dug from Up
We love you too, Dug.
“When the three of us were young, we were taught that the world is full of magic.” – Denahi from Brother Bear
Thanks for the reminder, Brother Bear.
♫ Love goes on and on. ♫ – Robin Hood
Robin Hood is kind of a super romantic movie.
“The children aren’t puppies, they’re people. And sooner or later Nana, people have to grow up.” – Mr. Darling from Peter Pan
This one really cuts deep, especially because of Nana’s soul crushing facial expression (WE WOULD NEVER LEAVE YOU BEHIND). This movie is all about never growing up, but Mr. Darling is right on the nose with this one. The great thing about Disney is, you can keep the magic with you at any age.
“We had fantastical feasts… when I lived in the palace.” – Ursula from The Little Mermaid
This quote, guys. Ursula is one sneaky sea witch and this line drives us absolutely crazy. When? How? What? Why did you leave? We need to know more!
“My daddy never did get what he wanted. But he had what he needed.” – Tiana from The Princess and the Frog
Just stop it. We can’t. This family is the best.
“Who’s to say I won’t live forever?” – Captain Jack Sparrow from The Pirates of the Caribbean
It’s this kind of confidence that will help Jack figure out a way to do just that.
“Is there any chance that I’m going to get super-strength in my hand? Because I’m not going to lie. That would be stupendous.” – Flynn Rider from Tangled
Flynn, YOU are stupendous. And perfect. In every way.
