The Wisdom of Famous Cartoon Characters

alex atkins bookshelf quotationsEveryone knows that cartoons and animated films of the Disney variety are for kids. However, they are written by adults and sometimes, tired of writing halfwitted jokes and inane conversation, they manage to sneak in a few life lessons along the way. And given the rapid-fire pace of dialogue in kiddie shows, you have to listen pretty closely to separate the wheat from the chaff. The hope is that some of this wisdom might make a lasting impression on the kids who are watching (and perhaps the adults watching with them) so they can learn from it. Here is some of the wisdom of famous cartoon and animated film characters.

Merida (Brave): “Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.”

Aladdin (Aladdin): “Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what outside, but what is inside that counts.”

Alice (Alice in Wonderland): “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”

The Blue Fairy (Pinocchio): “Always let your conscience be your guide.”

Eeyore (Winnie the Pooh): “A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.”

Snow White (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs): “You’re never too old to  be young.”

Mulan (The Emperor of China): “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of them all.”

Stitch (Lilo & Stitch): “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”

Zeus (Hercules): “A true hero is not measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.”

Mewtwo (Pokemon): “I see now that the circumstances of one’s birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.”

Chef G (Ratatouille): “You must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul.”

Rafiki (The Lion King): “Oh yes the past can hurt you, but you can either run from it or learn from it.”

Jack Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas): “Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it.”

Master Shift (King Fu Panda): “Anything is possible when you have inner peace.”
