I do not make films primarily for children. I make them for the child in all of us, whether we be six or sixty.

I don't believe in playing down to children, either in life or in motion pictures. I didn't treat my own youngsters like fragile flowers, and I think no parent should. Children are people, and they should have to reach to learn about things, to understand things, just as adults have to reach if they want to grow in mental stature. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil, and that is what our pictures attempt to do.

Okay, I've missed you. Not in a 'we're gonna make out' way, not even in an 'I forgive you' way. Just in an 'I've missed you' way.

But there are mistakes that are necessary. Sometimes you have to die a little bit to get back to live a little longer.

Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

An idea is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.

What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea! Resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate.

There’s a difference between saying good bye and letting go. Saying good bye is 'I'll see you again when I'm ready to hold your hand, and when you're ready to hold mine.' Letting go is 'I'll miss your hand. But I realized it's not mine to hold, and I will never hold it again.'
