Famous Walt Disney quotes

Walt Disney was a great American animator, writer, and film producer, who is often credited as the pioneer of the animation industry as we know it today. We don’t even fully realize, in our daily lives, the many things we use, watch, or experience that are directly descended from the talent and legacy of Walt Disney.

Walt Disney’s empire was built on fantasy, imagination, creativity, and child-like wonder, and he truly believed that children’s minds should be constantly encouraged and developed. Disney teaches us that nothing is more important than spending time with your family, especially your children, and giving them a childhood built on encouragement, love, and laughter.

Walt Disney brings us back to the days of our youth when we dreamed with abandon, before our perceived failures and unrealized dreams began to affect our confidence in ourselves. In Disney’s eyes, curiosity and imagination should be encouraged at all ages, as a means of both professional and personal development. If you have a passion, and are confident in your abilities, no dream is impossible.

Believe in your goals unconditionally, seeing failure not as a setback but as a learning tool. We all long to experience the freedom of dreaming with the innocence and wonder of childhood, and Walt Disney’s quotes are an important reminder that although we may age, our imagination remains limitless.
