We all need motivation, a gentle push in the right direction from time to time to give us that extra bit of inspiration. There’s no better way to take on life’s struggles than with some wise words and inspirational quotes from beloved animated films. Here are some of the most awe inspiring quotes from your favorite animated films!

When things get tough, we can always count on the characters in our favorite animated films to motivate us. The most modern of animated films up to date, Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’, features the ever-encouraging phrase “take a breath, remember who you are and why you’re here”. This is an incredibly powerful motto to live by, reminding us to stay true to ourselves and what we believe in.

Of course, how can anyone forget ‘The Lion King’ and the always inspiring Mufasa who said “I’m only brave when I have to be, being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble”. This goes to show that true bravery doesn’t come from cheesy one-liners or taking unnecessary risks, but from having the courage and strength to face your fears.

Quotes From ‘Toy Story’

Some of the most enduring quotes can be found in ‘Toy Story’, where the characters show us that life isn’t just about being a ‘big man’ with power and money. For example, when Woody says to Buzz in the first movie: “You are a toy! You aren’t the real Buzz Lightyear; you’re an action figure!“. Such a simple quote speaks volumes on why it is important to be content with who you are.

Quotes From ‘Finding Nemo’

The wisdom of ‘Finding Nemo’ is a timeless classic. Marlin showed so much courage and selflessness to rescue his son Nemo and this was reflected in the most memorable quote of the film: “I shall call him ‘squishy’, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my squishy”. As sweet as it is, it speaks volumes about how life can be unpredictable and yet, if we look around us, we are surrounded by beautiful opportuninty.

Quotes From ‘Frozen’

In ‘Frozen’ we learn that sometimes all you need is a little faith and understanding. We can take away so much inspiration from the ever popular “Let It Go” song which tells us to accept our mistakes and move on. Anna was so brave to believe again and embrace unknown risks, but it’s not surprising, since she was spiritually guided by her parents words of “always let your heart be your guide”.

Quotes From ‘Up’

In perhaps one of the saddest animated films, ‘Up’ proved that even when it feels like life has thrown one too many bad days at you, being surrounded by people who love and support you can make all the difference. Its most powerful phrase comes from the heartbroken yet determined Carl: “Adventure is out there”. It’s incredible how much this phrase can relate to us and how much it can inspire us to never give up and look beyond what we can see..
