The mere word “Disney” invites you to a very special universe. It’s one of magical Disney Parks, beloved characters, catchy songs and unforgettable movies. Yes, there’s probably a Disney film or two that tugs at your heartstrings and teleports you back to your childhood (“The Little Mermaid,” here’s to you).

With all of this Disney bounty, a collection of famous Disney quotes awaits. Here, you’ll find inspiring words from Walt Disney himself. His candid thoughts on getting started and giving back will reignite your imagination and keep you moving forward whenever you’ve fallen into a rut. 

And there’s no shortage of quotes from your favorite Disney movies. There are ones about love, like the sweet “Alice in Wonderland” line, “I’ll miss you when I wake up,” and “I’d rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you,” from “Pocahontas.” Maybe you have other relationships in mind. “Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten,” is a gem from “Lilo and Stitch,” as is “You and I are a team. Nothing is more important than our friendship,” from “Monsters, Inc.” Not all Disney quotes are meant to be heartwarming. “First of all, I would like to make one thing clear: I never explain anything,” said the one and only Mary Poppins. And from “The Lion King,” there’s the sobering, “It is time.” 

It’s time to refresh your memory on some of the best lines bestowed upon us by the Disney universe. It may be difficult to pick a favorite, but as they say in “The Little Mermaid,” “Life’s full of tough choices, isn’t it?”
