We’re back with more incredibly important, nay, life-changing quotes. Get ready. Put down your beverages (because we don’t want you spitting them out in shock and awe as you read these quotes). Basically, be prepared for more mind-blowing truths spoken by some of your favorite characters.
“You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” – Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh
Ugh. Christopher Robin with the wisdom. He’s only a kid and yet that was the best pep talk we’ve heard in forever.
“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” – Lilo, Lilo & Stitch
We’re grabbing a tissue. Family is more than just your relatives. It’s also the people you choose to surround yourself with. And, as Lilo says, it means that no one has to be alone.
“Even miracles take a little time.” – Fairy Godmother, Cinderella
The Fairy Godmother knows what she’s talking about. Miracles can take time, so don’t sit around waiting for them. We mean, it’s great if they happen, but if not, make your own miracles.
“Go. Live your dream.” – Hook Hand Thug, Tangled
Seriously, everyone. Live your dreams! Work hard and think positively and get out there and do what you love. (End speech.)
“You’re mad, bonkers, off your head! But I’ll tell you a secret: all the best people are.” – Charles Kingsleigh, Alice in Wonderland
We’re more than a little relieved to hear that all the best people are a bit mad. This quote just makes us smile. And think. And then smile again.
“And don’t spend your time lookin’ around for something you want that can’t be found.” – Baloo, The Jungle Book
Great point, Baloo. We spend so much time pining after things in life that we don’t really need. Maybe we should take the bear’s advice and let the necessities come to us once in awhile.
“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” – Narrator, Beauty and the Beast
If there’s one thing we learned from Beauty and the Beast, it’s that it matters more who you are on the inside than what you look like on the outside. If there are two things we learned from Beauty and the Beast, the second would be that if it’s not baroque, don’t fix it. Sound advice.
“I’d rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you.” – John Smith, Pocahontas
Well this is just beautiful in that we-have-chills/takes-our-breath-away kind of way. We need a moment.
“Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it.” – Helen Parr/Elastigirl, The Incredibles
We knew Helen Parr had super skills, she’s Elastigirl after all, and clearly one of those skills is wisdom, because she says this and…wow. Just wow.
“I know every mile will be worth my while. I would go most anywhere to feel like I belong.” – Hercules, Hercules
Going the distance is literal for Hercules’ journey, but it’s also a super deep metaphor for taking the time to find out who you are. Putting the glad in gladiator is only possible after you’re happy just being you.
“Maleficent doesn’t know anything about love, or kindness, or the joy of helping others. You know, sometimes I don’t think she’s really very happy.” – Fauna, Sleeping Beauty
Woah. We’ve never considered that maybe Maleficent is unhappy and that’s the root of her need to harm others. What if someone had just given her a hug? Hugs, guys.
“No matter what anyone says, you’ll always be a prince to me.” – Genie, Aladdin
Oh boy. Just when you think the Genie is all jokes he says something like this. And he’s right. Being a prince is about more than wearing a crown. For Aladdin, it’s about being a good person.
“Authority should derive from consent of the governed, not from threat of force!” – Barbie, Toy Story 3
Is it just us or did Barbie just get very political? In any case, we’re on board. Viva la revolution (of toys)!
“Fact is there’s nothin’ out there you can’t do. Yeah, even Santa Claus believes in you.” – Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, The Muppet Movie
How empowering is it to think that Santa Claus believes in us, just as much as we believe in him? Dr. Teeth has no idea just how heavy duty his melodious tunes really are….or does he?
“So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I.” – Mufasa, The Lion King
Aaaand cue the tears. Kings are going to guide Simba, and vicariously, us too. We suddenly feel important and special. Thanks, Mufasa.
