I’ve never had the feeling I couldn’t walk out and get a job doing something. Walt Disney

I’m not the first to say that failure, when approached properly, can be an opportunity for growth. Ed Catmull (Creativity, Inc.)

In a fear-based, failure-averse culture, people will consciously or unconsciously avoid risk. They will seek instead to repeat something safe that’s been good enough in the past. Their work will be derivative, not innovative. But if you can foster a positive understanding of failure, the opposite will happen. Ed Catmull

Failures can be seen as information or they can be seen as a threat to your sense of self. Embracing the former definition will help you learn and improve. Succumbing to the latter will make you timid and resentful. The Stoic Emperor

All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride. Sophocles

No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Chris Hardwick

When you make a mistake, you should learn to take a deep breath, grit your teeth, and then examine your own recollections of the mistake as ruthlessly and as dispassionately as you can manage. Daniel Dennett

Walt Disney said that he does not make films primarily for children. He makes them for the child in all of us, “whether he be 6 or 60.”

Disney’s business was happiness. He brought tears and smiles to kids, young and old, around the world, and had a very specific recipe for doing so.  His recipe was the four Cs: Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy.  He said that “the greatest of these is Confidence.  Without confidence, you won’t get past the challenges and critics that stand before you.”

We can learn a lot from Walt Disney’s timeless words of wisdom, and we wanted to find some of the best Disney movie quotes that have resonated with us as life lessons throughout the years.

We also created free printables with four of our favorite quotes. Click the images below, and feel free to download and print these quotes, share them with friends, or hang them up wherever you need a little inspiration!
