We seriously love Disney Princesses (as if that wasn’t already obvious). Whether it’s Tiana’s pure gumption or Cinderella’s unfailing belief that everything will work out, they are all role models in their own way. We’re especially influenced by the amazing quotes and lyrics in their films (too numerous to even name them all). Try not to cry and/or be super inspired as you read our favorite quotes to live by. JUST TRY.
♫ There must be more than this provincial life! ♫ Belle is the quintessential person to look to for inspiration. She knows that there’s more to life, and instead of waiting for it, she’s going to find it.
♫ When’s it my turn? Wouldn’t I love, love to explore that shore up above? ♫
It’s always your turn, Ariel. Exploration leads to adventure, and adventure leads to all sorts of fun life experiences.
“And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday her dreams of happiness would come true.”
Don’t be a jerk (like Lady Tremaine), and life will probably reward you.
“But they say if you dream a thing more than once, it’s sure to come true…”
We love dreaming, whether it’s day or nighttime. Aurora may have been talking about her (then imaginary) Prince, but this quote could apply to all aspects of life. Whether you’re dreaming about a job, an apartment, or the love of your life, having a positive outlook always helps when trying to make that dream a reality.
♫ I’m like a shooting star, I’ve come so far, I can’t go back, to where I used to be! ♫
So true, Jasmine. It’s important to enjoy the moment, and learn from life’s adventures.
♫ How about a girl who’s got a brain, who always speaks her mind? ♫
Just, yes. Yes to all of this.
“I am Merida, first born of Clan DunBroch, and I’ll be shooting for my own hand!”
Take your fate into your own hands. You can do anything you set your mind to, and Merida proved that!
♫ If you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew. ♫
Pocahontas is so wise. You should always try to put yourself in someone else’s shoes… and hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon.
♫ Then after lunch, it’s puzzles and darts and baking, paper-mache, a bit of ballet and chess! ♫
Hobbies, hobbies, and more hobbies; they make us well-rounded and proactive. (Although, Rapunzel might have spent too much time hobbying, a good balance is totally recommended.)
♫ Remember, you’re the one that can fill the world with sunshine. ♫
Be you. Whatever grey comes along, your personality will always shine through; so let it gleam bright!
♫ I remember Daddy told me, fairy tales can come true. You got to make them happen, it all depends on you! ♫
This quote was hard to choose because basically the entire film is amazing. Still, we had to go with this one. Your success in life depends on you, and you alone. Your hard work is what will help you accomplish your goals.
