Few months ago, I went out with old friends from high school and I was telling them: – Hey, do…
10 unexpected inspirational quotes in animation movies (from The Land Before Time to Kung Fu Panda)
Do you like animation movies?
I loooooove them!
And what I love the most is the fact that you can have different interpretations depending on how old you are.
I remember when talking to a 7 years old boy about “Up”, I said:
I looove the movie but I cried right at the beginning! It was sad.
And then he looked at me, with the look like “are you sure we’re talking about the same movie?” and then he asked me why. And naturally I said:
Well, do you remember when there’s a flashback of the grumpy old guy’s life? You see that he can’t have kids and then his wife dies and they didn’t have a chance to realize their dream to go to South America together. That’s sad!
He just laughed and said:
That’s not saaaaad! Hey do you remember the dog? He’s so fuuuun!!!!
And there he was remembering aaaaaaall the conversations with the dog (ahah ^^).
Anyway, here are 10 quotes from some animation movies (I watched of course!) that inspired me.
From The Land Before Time (1988) aaaaaall the way to Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016), you’re gonna be inspired by these amazing quotes.
#1 – The Land Before Time (Universal Pictures, 1988)
Litthlefoot’s Mother: Let your heart guide you. It whispers so listen closely.
#2 – Beauty and The Beast (Disney, 1991)
Belle: I want adventure in the great wide somewhere.
I want it more than I can tell.
And for once it might be grand.
To have someone understand.
I want so much more than they’ve got planned…
#3 – Mulan (Disney, 1998)
Mulan: Look at me… I will never pass for a perfect bride. Or a perfect daughter. Can it be, I’m not meant to play this part? Now I see, that if I were truly to be myself, I would break my family’s heart. Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me? Why is my reflection someone I don’t know? Somehow I cannot hide who I am, though I’ve tried. When will my reflection show who I am inside?
#4 – Mulan
The Emperor Of China: The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.
The Emperor Of China: You don’t meet a girl like that every dynasty.
#5 – Meet the Robinsons (Disney, 2007)
Lewis: Look, I’m sorry your life turned out so bad. But don’t blame me you messed it up yourself. You just focused on the bad stuff when all you had to do was… let go of the past and keep moving forward…
#6 – Kung Fu Panda (DreamWorks, 2008)
Mr. Ping: The secret ingredient is… nothing!
Mr. Ping: You heard me. Nothing! There is no secret ingredient.
Po: Wait, wait… it’s just plain old noodle soup? You don’t add some kind of special sauce or something?
Mr. Ping: Don’t have to. To make something special you just have to believe it’s special.
#7 – WALL·E (Disney, 2008)
Captain: Out there is our home. *HOME*, Auto. And it’s in trouble. I can’t just sit here and-and-do nothing.

AUTO: On the Axiom, you will survive.
Captain: I don’t want to survive. I want to live.
#8 – Big hero 6 (Disney, 2014)

#9 – Kung Fu Panda 3 (DreamWorks, 2016)
Master Shifu: If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be better than what you are.
Po: But I like who I am!
