When it comes to Disney movies, no one can tell a story quite as they can. Whether it’s an original like Encanto or a classic tale revamp like Tangled, the characters infused into the storylines are what makes the movies so magical. The stories not only take the viewer on a magical journey, but each also gives us at least one earworm that embeds itself into the fabric of who we are.

For some, Disney shows up when “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” pops into our heads while the room is quiet for a brief moment. For others, it’s a quote by a character that you’re reminded of when you need some advice. Every Disney movie has some life lesson to learn: a reminder to be your authentic self, to love and support your family, or why choosing kindness is never the wrong move.

In honor of everything we’ve learned watching Disney movies and the lessons our kids learn too, we’ve rounded up 26 inspirational quotes. Each one will give you precisely what you need, at the best time.
