Walt Disney has prided itself with producing exemplary movies for children. Many of its movies didn’t only touch the hearts of little kids but have also made an impact in the life of many adults.
These movies have been filled with quotes that have inspired people from all walks of life. They were strong enough to motivate anybody, especially those who are undergoing tough times in their lives. Let’s take a look at the top 10 quotes from these heartwarming Disney classics.
The Lion King
“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.”
Life isn’t perfect. We all have our own stories to tell. We may have done some “bad” things in the past, or we have had a lot of failures. However, we must learn from all those failures, and let the lessons that we have learned guide us in our life’s journey.
“Just keep swimming.”
This famous line from Finding Nemo tells us one thing. Never give up. We may be weighed down by the seemingly insurmountable troubles today, but the only time that you would be defeated is when you start to give up! Never stop trying to find solutions to your woes, because soon, you will be able to get out of the “heavy net.” Just keep swimming!
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
“Whistle while your work.”
In everything we do, it’s always our attitude that would count. We may be the smartest guy in town, but if we’re downright lazy, nothing will happen to our lives. So while working, instead of complaining, sing a happy song! Remember, there are so many people out there who are still looking for a job.
“Think happy thoughts.”
Positivity can do so much for us! When we think positively, we are creating a mindset of success. Try to see the difference between telling yourself you can do it, and when you tell yourself that you can’t. The former will surely lead you to accomplish your goals.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
“If watching is all you’re gonna do, then you’re gonna watch your life go by without ya.”
Life offers a lot of opportunities. But these opportunities will not be given to us on a silver platter. We have to grab them. So when opportunity knocks at your door, open it and let it in. It can’t get inside if you don’t turn the knob and open the door.
The Little Mermaid
“The seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake.”
The Little Mermaid reminds us to appreciate what we have. This is the only way we could achieve real happiness. If we would always be on the lookout for what others have, then we would not be able to see God’s goodness in our lives as there would always be something “lacking.”
“You’re only a fool if you give up.”
That’s really one life lesson that Walt Disney wants us all to remember. Never give up. Just like him, he didn’t give up on his dreams. He continued dreaming despite how dire his situation was. The result? He achieved his dreams!
“Always let your conscience be your guide.”
Our conscience is the voice of God. So when we are at a crossroads where we are torn between a couple of things in life, then never close your eyes and heart to your conscience. It is your moral compass, the tiny voice of God telling you to do what is right.
“If you cannot say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.”
Words are very powerful. More than the physical hurt that one might feel, words that strike the heart can create a deeper wound. So for us to avoid hurting others, when we don’t have something nice to say, we better not say anything at all.
The Lion King
“You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become.”
Sometimes, we allow circumstances to define our character. This must not be so. Each of us was born in the image of God; thus, we are born to be great! We have the capability to do awesome things. Remember, that it was in His image and likeness that we were all created. So believe!
