Disney Wisdom That Will Set You for Life

I mean, really, what else do you need?

The Lion King

The basics.

Mufasa: Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.

Simba: But, Dad, don’t we eat the antelope?

Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.

Aladdin

Things to know.

Jafar in disguise: You’ve heard of the golden rule, haven’t you? The one who has the gold, makes the rules (add disgusting wheezing laugh).

Bambi

Manners.

Thumper: If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.

Sleeping Beauty

Skillfully telling your family you met someone.

Prince Philip: I said I met the girl I was going to marry. I don’t know who she was, a peasant girl, I suppose.

(Shortened quote follows)

King Hubert: You’re a prince, and you’re going to marry a princess!

Prince Philip: Now, Father, you’re living in the past. This is the 14th century. Nowadays –

King Hubert: Nowadays I’m still the king, and I command you to come to your senses –

Prince Philip: And marry the girl I love.

King Hubert: Exactly!

The Little Mermaid

Understanding teenagers (because at some point we’ll all need to).

Sebastian: Teenagers. They think they know everything. You give them an inch, they swim all over you.

Pocahontas

How to make friends and share hobbies.

John Smith: Pocahontas, that tree is talking to me…

Pocahontas: And you should talk back!
