Happy Birthday, Walt!

Today is Walt Disney's Birthday! The creator of Mickey Mouse and all our favourite animated characters was born on Dec. 1 1905. Sadly, he passed away at only 65 in 1966. But, in that short life, he managed to give us the gift of laughter and fantasy! He had a gift for reaching out to children AND to the child in all of us....here are some insights into the mind of the man who did that so well:

"Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards - the things we live by and teach our children - are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings."  

"A man should never neglect his family for business."


“"Think, Believe, Dream, and Dare.


Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood.”


There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island and at the bottom of the Spanish Main... and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.”


“Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.”

"I don't believe in talking down to children. I don't believe in talking down to any certain segment. I like to kind of just talk in a general way to the audience. Children are always reaching."


"You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway."
