Walt Disney was born on this day, December 5, in 1901. He is an idol of mine, and such a huge inspiration, for his unbridled imagination, firm belief and proof that dreams can come true, and tremendous vision. I am simply in awe of his legacy to this world.
In my blog I shine the light on wonderful memories of Walt Disney World and how it makes me feel so connected to my mom and to Ben, and for that I will always be grateful.
So, in honor of Walt’s birthday, I have put together just a few of his quotes that are special to me.
“That’s the real trouble with the world. Too many people grow up.”
“People who have worked with me say I am ‘innocence in action.’ They say I have the innocence and unself-consciousness of a child.”
“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever.”
“The greatest moments in life are not concerned with selfish achievements but rather with the things we do for the people we love and esteem.”
“I hope we never lose sight of one thing-that it was all started by a mouse.”
“Why be a governor or a senator when you can be king of Disneyland?”
Happy Birthday, Walt, the consummate child at heart!
