Quotes are one my favourite things ever. I don’t know why; I guess, maybe, because they can be quite inspirational and motivating. Anyway, here are some of my favourite bookish quotes;
Milk and Honey is a poetry book written by Rupi Kaur. It’s so amazing, inspirational, deep and real. I haven’t really been one for poetry until just recently, so this was definitely a great read to help encourage me to read more poems. There are so many amazing poems in this book, but here are just a few I personally loved the most, in no particular order…
“if you were born with
the weakness to fall
you were born with
the strength to rise”
“how is it so easy for you
to be kind to people he asked
milk and honey dripped
from my lips as i answered
cause people have not
been kind to me”
“she was a rose
in the hands of those
who had no intention of keeping her”
“it takes grace
to remain kind
in cruel situations”
is a museum
of natural disasters
can you grasp how
stunning that is”
as you were designed”
“if the hurt comes
so will the happiness”
“love is not cruel
we are cruel
love is not a game
we have made a game
out of love”
“we are all born
the greatest tragedy is
being convinced we are not”
“most importantly love
like it’s the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
where you’re sitting
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them”
(this one’s in bold because it’s my favourite lol)
what i have
and i am happy
what i’ve lost
and i am
“you look at me and cry
i hold you and whisper
but everything can heal”
“you were a dragon long before
he came around and said
you could fly
you will remain a dragon
long after he’s left”
“perhaps the saddest of all
are those who live waiting
for someone they’re not
–7 billion people”
“he isn’t coming back
whispered my head
he has to
sobbed my heart
“you treat them like they
have a heart like yours
but not everyone can be as
soft and as tender
you don’t see the
person they are
you see the person
they have the potential to be
you give and give till
they pull everything out of you
and leave you empty”
“the one who arrives after you
will remind me love is
supposed to be soft
he will taste
like the poetry
i wish i could write”
“nothing is safer
than the sound of you
reading out loud to me
–the perfect date”
“i know i
for better reasons
but have you seen
that boy he brings
the sun to its
“my favourite thing about you is your smell
you smell like
a little more
human than the rest of us”
“what am i to you he asks
i put my hands in his lap
and whisper you
are every hope
i’ve ever had
in human form”
“there is no bigger illusion in the world
than the idea that a woman will
bring dishonor into a home
if she tries to keep her heart
and her body safe”
Since it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow, I thought it’d be a nice idea to have a cute, fun blog post with a “Mother’s Day” theme. It might help with that personalised card message and inspire some creativity. Who knows? So here are some of the best quotes I found.
“Listen, all around you are spirits, child. They live in the earth, water, stars, if you listen they will guide you. Listen with your heart, you will understand.”
This beauty was said by Grandmother Willow in the film Pocahontas.
“I will always be right here.”
This is said by Queen Elinor in Brave.
“I just want you to be happy, whatever you decide… you will always be my son.”
This is said by Kala in Tarzan.
“Baby mine, don’t you cry. Baby mine, dry your eyes. Rest your head close to my heart.”
This is sang by Dumbo’s mam in the classic movie, Dumbo.
“You have more power than you realize. When the time comes you will know what to do.”
Mrs. Incredible says this quote in the movie, The Incredibles.
“You may hear a voice inside. And if that voice starts to whisper, to follow the brightest star. Moana, that voice inside is who you are.”
This is said by Moana’s Grandmother in the newest Disney film, Moana. It’s pretty similar to Grandmother Willows quote… what a coincidence 😉
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.”
This was said by Thumper in the film Bambi, but I included it because it’s what Thumper’s mother taught him.
“Where there is kindness, there is goodness. And where there is goodness, there is magic. Have courage and be kind.”
One of my favourite Disney quotes ever! This is said by Cinderella’s mother in the new Cinderella movie.
“Even miracles take a little time”
This is said by Cinderella’s fairy Godmother.
“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and snap! The job’s a game”
This is said by Mary Poppins. She’s not exactly a mother, but, she is a mother figure, so I had to include this quote!
“A mother, with her intuition, will know just what to do”
This is a lyric from a song featured in the movie Piglet’s Big Movie. What a cute movie!
Disney villains are usually the most humorous and sassy characters in the film. They are also sometimes the most creepy characters. Here is a collection of some of the best quotes…
“He’s a GUY!” – Hades, Hercules
Yep. Hades is all about that sass.
“I warn you, child. If I lose my temper, you lose your head! Understand?” – The Queen of Hearts, Alice in Wonderland
Don’t you just wish you could talk to the people you hate, or just get annoyed at, like this? AND get away with it??
“The most beautiful girl in town, that makes her the best! And don’t I deserve the best?” – Gaston, Beauty and the Beast
Oh, Gaston, I do admire your confidence. Never denying yourself of anything, or settling for less.
“And there, my faithful huntsman, you will kill her” – Evil Queen, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
This is actually quite a slightly creepy quote. But, at least she knows (or, at least, thinks) she can trust her huntsman…
“Here in town it’s only she, who is as beautiful as me” – Gaston, Beauty and the Beast
Again; I love Gaston’s self-confidence. It’s actually goals!
“Dear, this whole romance that you’ve invented, just proves you’re too naive to be here. Why would he like you?” – Mother Gothel, Tangled
This is a pretty sad quote. She just knocks Rapunzel’s confidence right down without a second thought.
“You poor, simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me. Me! The mistress of evil” – Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty
Well, she’s not exactly wrong. It was quite a difficult job to defeat her, so she kind of has a point here…
“Triton’s daughter will be mine and then I’ll make him writhe. I’ll see him wriggle like a worm on a hook” – Ursala, The Little Mermaid
That’s such a gross image *spew*.
“A snake, am I? Perhaps you’d like to see how sss-snake-like I can be” – Jafar, Aladdin
Jafar is literally like, “challenge accepted.” I love it.
“I’ve never liked your spinach puffs” – Yzma, The Emperor’s New Groove
That’s way harsh, Yzma. How dare you.
“Oh, Anna. If only there was someone out there who loved you” – Prince Hans, Frozen
I’m still shocked at this, how could he do that to poor Anna?! D:
“Death is the only adventure you have left” – Captain Hook, Peter Pan
That’s pretty creepy, Captain Hook.
“A llama? He’s supposed to be dead!” – Yzma, The Emperor’s New Groove
This is probably the most memorable quote of the movie.
“I killed Mufasa” – Scar, The Lion King
I blame Scar for (probably) traumatising me. How can he say that with what almost sounds like joy?!
“Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” – Evil Queen, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Another iconic line. I probably use this line whenever I look in the mirror; it’s a good confidence boost.
“The world is cruel. The world is wicked” – Judge Claude Frollo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Well, to be fair to him, he’s not exactly wrong.
“It’s called a cruel irony, like my dependence on you” – Yzma, The Emperor’s New Groove
I couldn’t leave this one out. Yzma is probably one of the sassiest villains ever.
“The world is dark and selfish and cruel. If it finds even the slightest ray of sunshine. It destroys it” – Mother Gothel, Tangled
Gothel and Frollo seem to be sharing similar thoughts here. Coincidence? I think not!
(It probably is just a coincidence)
“I’m surrounded by idiots” – Scar, The Lion King
This is basically what goes on in my head 90% of the time 😉
“More good women have been lost to marriage than to war, famine, disease and disaster” – Cruella Deville, 101 Dalmatians
That’s a great confidence boost and just what every bride-to-be wants to hear!
So there are some of the best Disney villain quotes! There are a lot more amazing quotes from villains, but they all won’t be able to fit here.
(I do not own any of these images, they belong to Disney)
Disney has hundreds – millions – of famous quotes. But, there are some which you should probably listen to throughout your everyday life. I pretty much follow these quotes everyday, and I think that’s why I’m such a happy and positive person.
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all” – Bambi
What goes around, comes around. And what good will you get from being a Negative Nancy?
“Where there is kindness, there is goodness. And where there is goodness, there is magic. Have courage and be kind” – Cinderella
Stay positive!! Try to see the good in everything. Try to see the world, not how it is, but how it could be.
“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
Everyone has a different story, different problems. You don’t really know what someone is going through so stop thinking ‘everyone else has it easier than you’!
“The very thing that held you down is going to carry you up” – Dumbo
Try to use the negative in your life as motivation. If someone tells you you can’t do something; prove them wrong! Unless it’s illegal, of course.
“I promise. And when I promise something, I never ever break that promise. Ever” – Tangled
If you can’t keep a promise, then how can you expect people to trust you?
“A little consideration, a little thought for others makes all the difference” – Winnie the Pooh
This is slightly similar to the Cinderella and Pocahontas quote. Try to be more considerate for others, because you don’t know what they’re going through.
“Just keep swimming” – Finding Nemo
Keep moving forward and be positive :).
“I never look back darling, it distracts me from the now” – The Incredibles
Yes, you may have made mistakes in the past that keep you up at two in the morning. But, what good will it do if you keep reminding yourself about it? Let it go.
“There is no one I’d rather be, than me” – Wreck it Ralph
Be proud to be you!
“Ohana means family. And family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten” – Lilo and Stitch
Family is important. Keep them.
“Just because it’s what’s done, it doesn’t mean it’s what should be done” – Cinderella
Just because everyone else does something, it doesn’t mean it’s right. Stand up for what you believe in.
“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within” – Beauty and the Beast
Who wants to have an ugly personality?
“You must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul” – Ratatouille
Don’t judge people by where they come from, and don’t let others do so to you.
“You may hear a voice inside. And if that voice starts to whisper, to follow the brightest star. Moana, that voice inside is who you are” – Moana
Be who you’re meant to be. (Again, unless it’s illegal).
