Walt Disney Inspirational Quotes

the way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing

Walt Disney was a great believer in avoiding procrastination. He not only had amazing ideas, he actually took action to put them into practice. 

Walt was not afraid of failure. He experienced many challenges in his life which most people would not have overcome. 

2. “If you can dream it you can do it”

3.“When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.” 

“When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.” 

Walt Disney could very easily have given up when he experienced a setback. However, his success was due to the fact that he learned from his challenges and built something from his disappointments.

Many people would have given up in the face of adversity. Early in his career, Walt Disney lost the rights to his very successful character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. 

Instead of giving up at this point, Disney saw that he had to find a solution. On the train ride home, he created Mickey Mouse.

Even with the creation of one of the most iconic characters of all time, Disney was still not home and dry. It took numerous rejections before he could convince a bank to give him the money to develop his idea. And as we know “It was all started by a Mouse”

4.“When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do. And one thing it takes to accomplish something is courage.” 


5  “A man should never neglect his family for business.”

Walt Disney built an Empire. However, he never lost sight of the fact that the most important thing was family.

Walt Disney married his beloved wife Lillian and they had two children Diane Marie Disney and Sharon Mae Disney. After the birth of Diane, Lillian was advised not to have more children so they adopted Sharon Mae in 1936.

Frozen Inspirational Quotes

There are some hidden gems in these Frozen Inspirational Quotes.

9. “All one can do is the next right thing”.


This line is spoken by Grand Pabbie and then it is repeated by Anna later in the Frozen 2 movie.

The wisdom of this quote is that you have to make decisions in life that are best at the time that you make them. You can’t always plan ahead, as circumstances often change in ways you can never imagine.

All you can do is use the wisdom you have in order to make the right decision for your situation right now.

10. “It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small”

This is one of the lines from Elsa’s iconic ballad “Let it Go”.

its funny how some distance makes everything seem small

There are so many messages in this song and many people identify with Elsa’s struggle and her emerging realization that things which she has worried about in the past, really weren’t the important things. 

Sometimes it is very difficult to see how to deal with a situation because you are too confined by it. Once Elsa is beginning to find her freedom she sees things from a very different perspective.

Disney Princess Inspirational Quotes

Disney Princesses have truly evolved over the last 80 years since Snow White first launched the unprecedented animation movie success of Walt Disney. 

These Disney Princess inspirational quotes are worth reflecting upon.

 11. “I’m like a shooting star, I’ve come so far, I can’t go back, to where I used to be”. 

Wise words from Disney Princess Jasmine in the movie Alladin.


Sometimes periods of growth can be hard to sustain. Even when we have moved forward we need to make sure that we remain positive and use what we have learned. 

12. “You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.”

Pocahontas is the only Disney Princess based on a real historical figure. She has many words of wisdom to share and this is one of our favorites, which is from the inspirational song Colors of the Wind.



Often we get so fixed in our own point of view and close off people who we think are different. John Smith sees Pocahontas’ people as “ignorant savages”. Open your heart to others and you will learn more than you ever thought possible.

13. “I remember Daddy told me, fairy tales can come true. You got to make them happen, it all depends on you”!

princesstiana quote


Words of inspiration from Princess Tiana in the movie “The Princess and the Frog”. Tiana works hard to make her dreams of owning her own restaurant come true. Against all the odds she makes it work because she takes control and makes it happen.



Wishing on a star doesn’t cut it for this modern Disney Princess. She knows that hard work pays off and you can’t just sit around waiting for your dreams to come true.

14. “Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.”

The age-old debate about how much of our lives are already determined by fate is one of the central themes of Disney Pixar’s Brave movie. 



Feisty Merida is the eleventh Disney Princess and was the first, and so far only, Princess to be created by the Pixar movie studio.

Quite rightly determined not to be forced into a life she knows is not the right one for her, she overcomes the conflict between free will and destiny.

15. “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”

Wise words from The Emporer in the brilliant Disney movie “Mulan”. 


Sometimes it seems as though there is little hope and it is very difficult to see a solution. However, those who overcome such difficulties are the ones who will flourish and grow stronger.
