This post is inspired by Ryan’s Pixar Cares post yesterday. What an awesome story. Click here to check it out.

I didn’t need his experience. I’ve always been a fan. Their movies are fun, inspirational, beautiful and entertaining for young and old alike. If I had to pick my favorites I’d say Monsters, Inc, The Incredibles, and UP, but really, I could watch any one of them over and over again.

Here are my favorite inspirational quotes from the world of Pixar, and why I love them…

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Edna

“I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.” – Edna Mode in The Incredibles

I posted about this a few times, most notably in I choose to live in the now. How many times to we let our past dictate our future?

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Dory

Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim. -Dory in Finding Nemo

Ahhh Dory. One of my favorite characters of all time and Ellen was cast perfectly. "Just keep swimming" pops into my head all the time and has been left in comments on my blog probably more than any other quote. It’s the perfect mantra when facing anything in life.

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Remy

Change is nature, Dad. The part that we can influence. And it starts when we decide. – Remy in Ratatouille

LOVE this. WE are in control and we can decide to change.

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Mater

“Git-R-Done!” -Mater in Cars

‘nough said!

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar -Flik

Now, it may seem that you can’t do anything, but that’s just because you’re not a tree yet. You just have to give yourself more time. You’re still a seed. -Flik in A Bug’s Life

Ain’t that the truth! We need to give ourselves time to grow and change.

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Captain

I don’t want to survive. I want to live! -Captain in Wall-E

Living consciously. That’s always been my goal and this quote sums it up perfectly.

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Rex

I’m going for fearsome here, but I just don’t feel it! I’m think I’m just coming off as annoying. -Rex in Toy Story

This one makes me laugh but it also reminds me to be self aware. Sometimes what you want to say and what’s being heard are two different things.

8 Inspiring Quotes from Pixar - Randall

Shh. Shh. Shh. Shh. Do you hear that? It’s the winds of change. -Randall in Monsters, Inc.

Yes. It. is. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    This was the best post, Roni! I use Pixar quotes all the time in my head. Dory is my favorite. “well, if you never let ANYTHING happen to him, then nothing will EVER happen to him.” we try so hard, some of us,to tiptoe through life, making sure not to “disturb” the calm and careful not to make waves. But in the end, that prevents us from having a dozen exciting things happen!!
