Laughter is timeless, Imagination has no age, and Dreams are forever.” – Walt Disney

I know I’ve mentioned it before in my writings, but for my newer readers who don’t know me, My name is Ashley, and I’m a mouskaholic.  While Disney is my passion, it is not my career (yet… maybe someday!)  I am currently employed as a 7-12 grade choir director at a suburban school district in Northeast Ohio.  I am currently in my 11th year of teaching which seems unreal!!!  I DEFINITELY don’t feel like I’m old enough to have been teaching 11 years!

With that being said, I have WONDERFUL students, who often present me with gifts of art work!  One of my dry erase boards in my room is basically covered in artwork that my students have given me! I have one student who just finished a super cool “fauvism” portrait of Robin Williams, and another student who turned some “Words of Walt” into a work of art.  So today’s quote is one that my student turned into art for me!

Words of Walt

“People still think of me as a cartoonist, but the only thing I lift a pen or pencil for these days is to sign a contract, a check, or an autograph.”

It still amazes me to think of Walt’s humble beginnings and the empire that he has built.  He started as a struggling cartoonist and was able to create something truly wonderful.

Words of Walt- Animated Films

“Because the eye is the most sensitive and dependable of our sense organs, the motion picture offers the widest, direct avenue to our emotions.  Whereas the still picture can suggest only a fragment of fact or fiction, the cartoon-in-motion is without limit in communicating ideas, events, and human relations.”

Words of Walt- Mickey Mouse

This is probably one of the most famous quotes by Walt Disney, and one of my all time favorites-

“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing- that it was all started by a mouse.”

To me this quote is a symbol and a beacon of what Disney is.  There is SO much that goes on at Disney on a daily basis.  So much to see and do, but don’t lose sight of the fact that it was all started by a mouse, something small.  It’s not always about the large moments, sometimes it’s about the small things.

Words of Walt-Mickey Mouse

“Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence.  He was a means to an end.  He popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad twenty years ago on a train 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.  Born of necessity, the little fellow literally freed us of immediate worry.  He provided the means for expanding our organization to its present dimensions and for extending the medium of cartoon animation toward new entertainment levels.  He spelled production liberation for us.”

Words of Walt- Characters

Disney has created so many lovable characters over the years.  They all possess their own unique personalities, and there is a reason behind that… Walt Disney.

“Until a character becomes a personality it cannot be believed.  Without personality, the character may do funny or interesting things, but unless people are able to identify themselves with the character, it’s actions will seem unreal.  And without personality, a story cannot ring true to the audience.”
