Ok, scrappers and other crafters, lets list our favorite Disney related quotes here. It can be almost anything that you think is a great quote for scrapping and crafting. Rules: It must be something Disney related, ride related, movie related, etc. Please, let's not list long personal quotes, but a cute short phrase would be fine. (e.g. Mickey's house really is magical!) I think you get the point. Also, if you can, please list the reference (who said it, under what context, etc.) Remember, the goal here is to make a list of quotes, titles, and phrases that would be great for a Disney scrapbooking/crafting reference. I have a few at work that I'll post tomorrow.

"Look Alive People, Look Alive".

It was when Mushu was waking the ancestors up. I put this in the autograph books I made. I used a large brad for the gong and a small brad tied to a 1/2 a toothpick, it was tied with embroidery floss.

"Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever".
-Walt Disney

I think this is a nice quote for a page with photos from parties, vacations, soccer games, or dance recitals :)

ALL QUOTES are from Disney himself


On Mickey Mouse


"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."


"Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence. He was a means to an end."


"When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



On Disneyland


"To all that come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America... with hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world."


"It's something that will never be finished. Something that I can keep developing...and adding to."


"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world."


"We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together."


"Disneyland is the star.Everything else is in the supporting role."


"It has that thing - the imagination, and the feeling of happy excitement- I knew when I was a kid."



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


On Walt Disney World


"Here in Florida, we have something special we never enjoyed at Disneyland...the blessing of size. There's enough land here to hold all the ideas and plans we can possibly imagine."


"I've always said that there will never be another Disneyland, and I think it's going to work out that way. But it will be the equivalent of Disneyland. We know the basic things that have family appeal. There are many ways that you can use those certain basic things and give them a new decor, a new treatment. This concept here will have to be something that is unique, so there is a distinction between Disneyland in California and whatever Disney does in Florida."


"Believe me, it's the most exciting and challenging assignment we have ever tackled at Walt Disney Productions.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



On Epcot


"But the most exciting and by far the most important part of our Florida Project...in fact, the heart of everything we'll be doing in Disney World...will be our Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow! We call it EPCOT."


"It's like the city of tomorrow ought to be. A city that caters to the people as a service function. It will be a planned, controlled community, a showcase for American industry and research, schools, cultural and educational opportunities.


"EPCOT will be an experimental prototype community of tomorrow that will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world for the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise."


"I don't believe there's a challenge anywhere in the world that's more important to people everywhere than finding solutions to the problems of our cities. But where do we begin... how do we start answering this great challenge? Well, we're convinced we must start answering the public need. And the need is for starting from scratch on virgin land and building a special kind of new community that will always be in a state of becoming. I twill never cease to be a living blueprint of the future, where people actually live a life they can't find anywhere else in the world."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



On Animation


"Cartoon animation offers a medium of storytelling and visual entertainment which can bring pleasure and information to people of all ages everywhere in the world."


"In learning the art of storytelling by animation, I have discovered that language has an anatomy. Every spoken word, whether uttered by a living person or by a cartoon character, has its facial grimace, emphasizing the meaning."


"Animation can explain whatever the mind of man can conceive. This facility makes it the most versatile and explicit means of communication yet devised for quick mass appreciation."


"I take great pride in the artistic development of cartoons. Our characters are made to go through emotions which a few short years ago would have seemed impossible to secure with a cartoon character. Some of the action produced in the finished cartoon of today is more graceful than anything possible for a human to do."


"Animation is different from other parts. Its language is the language of caricature. Our most difficult job was to develop the cartoon's unnatural but seemingly natural anatomy for humans and animals."


"To think six years ahead - even two or three - in this business of making animated cartoon features, it takes calculated risk and much more than blind faith in the future of theatrical motion pictures. I see motion pictures as a family-founded institution closely related to the life and labor of millions of people. Entertainment such as our business provides has become a necessity, not a luxury. Curiouly, it is the part which offers us the greatest re assurance about the future in the animation field."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



On Fantasy


"Fantasy, if it's really convincing, can't become dated for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time."


"Sheer animated fantasy is still my first and deepest production impulse. The fable is the best storytelling device ever conceived, and the screen is its best medium."


"Fantasy, when properly done in the one medium best adapted to its nature, need never stale for the family taste."

A man should never neglect his family for business.
Walt Disney

Adults are interested if you don't play down to the little 2 or 3 year olds or talk down. I don't believe in talking down to children. I don't believe in talking down to any certain segment. I like to kind of just talk in a general way to the audience. Children are always reaching.

Walt Disney

Laughter is America's most important export.

Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad 20 years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.
Walt Disney

Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood.
Walt Disney

Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.
Walt Disney

Or heritage and ideals, our code and standards - the things we live by and teach our children - are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.
Walt Disney

People look at you and me to see what they are supposed to be. And, if we don't disappoint them, maybe, just maybe, they won't disappoint us.
