When we think of wise Disney characters, often we think of Mufasa, Fairy Godmother, or Jiminy Cricket. But we have news for you—there are so many other wise Disney characters that don’t get the attention they deserve. We paired a few of our favorite ones with one of their best quotes:
Doorknob, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland
Believe in yourself. If a doorknob has this positive of an outlook, you can too.
“I have just met you, and I love you!”
Have an open heart. It seems to work for Dug.
Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio
“Always let your conscience be your guide.”
Listen to that little (cricket) voice inside your head.
Mufasa, The Lion King
“Look inside yourself. You are more than what you have become.”
Things can’t always be “Hakuna Matata.” How will you deal with it?
“You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.”
It’s important to keep an open mind, without literally having to walk in someone else’s shoes.
Ralph, Wreck-It Ralph
“I’m bad, and that’s good. I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”
Love who you are.
Alice, Burton’s Alice in Wonderland
“You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”
Embrace it. We’re all a little bonkers in our own way.
The Emperor, Mulan
“A single grain of rice can tip the scale. One man may be the difference between victory and defeat.”
It just takes one person to start a movement, or to save China.
Auguste Gusteau, Ratatouille
“If you focus on what you have left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead!”
If your past is the sewer, surely better things are to come.
“Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart.”
Warm hugs will also thaw a frozen heart.
“Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.”
March to your own beat. Merida is the perfect example.
