The Best Life Lessons We Learn From Movies

There is so much that I have ever learned from movies, I mean let’s be honest Disney is like a god when it comes to life lessons. There are quotes in movies that when you’re in the moment, they hit you hard, right in your heart, or there are quotes that are exactly what you need to hear at that moment. Either way, there are quotes for everything in so many different movies, but I know I have learned so much from the quotes that I have chosen. So are you ready to go on a movie adventure?

“There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.” The Theory of Everything.

“Even miracles take a little time.” – Cinderella.

“We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.” – Interstellar.

“If you let people’s perception of you dictate your behaviour, you will never grow as a person.” – Boy Meets World.

“After a while, you learn to ignore the names people call you and just trust who you are.” – Shrek The Third.

“You control your destiny, you don’t need magic to do it. And there is no magical shortcuts to solving your problems.” – Brave.

“There is always hope, my friend, though it often comes in forms not looked for. The key is knowing how to see it and seizing that opportunity.” – Star Wars.
