Pinocchio Quotes

Walt Disney: Pinocchio QuotesReleased on February 7, 1940, Pinocchio was Walt Disney’s second Full Length Animated Feature film behind Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. With the success of Snow White, Walt wanted to do a story that would again appeal to a wide range of people and tell a great moral story while maintaining that now familiar Disney flair for entertainment. The plot of the film involves a humble toy maker named Geppetto who carves a wooden puppet he names Pinocchio. One evening, Geppetto wishes upon a star that Pinocchio can be made into a real boy as it has been Geppetto’s lifelong dream to have a child of his own. That same evening, after Geppetto is fast asleep, his house is visited by the blue fairy, who brings Pinocchio to life and tells him he can become a real boy if he proves himself “brave, truthful, and unselfish”.

Though Pinocchio was slow  to reach financial success, the film was heralded as one of Walt Disney’s crowning achievements critically. In fact, the song When You Wish Upon A Star became so popular, the Walt Disney Company later used it as their company anthem. Pinocchio is a great piece of American Animation and over time has been recognized as among the best Walt Disney delivered during his lifetime.

“Pretty, huh? I’ll bet a lot of you folks don’t believe that, about a wish coming true, do you? Well, I didn’t, either. Of course, I’m just a cricket singing my way from hearth to hearth, but let me tell you what made me change my mind.”

“What does an actor want with a conscience, anyway?”

“Go ahead. Make a fool of yourself, and maybe you’ll listen to your conscience.”

In honor of Alice’s 62nd birthday, we present a collection of great quotes from the Lewis Carroll novels that inspired the Disney Classic film. Enjoy!

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”

“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, or you wouldn’t have come here.”

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

“Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.”

“You used to be much more…’muchier.’ You’ve lost your muchness.”

Mad Hatter: “Why is a raven like a writing-desk?”
“Have you guessed the riddle yet?”the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
“No, I give it up,” Alice replied: “What’s the answer?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter

“Alice came to a fork in the road. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
‘Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat.
‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
‘Then,’ said the Cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.”

“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
“Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.”

“You would have to be half mad to dream me up.”

“We’re all mad here.”

“I’m afraid I can’t explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?”

“And what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversation?”

“Off with their heads!”

“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”

“Have I gone mad?”
“I’m afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usually are.”

“My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.”

“Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don’t much care where.
The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
Alice: …So long as I get somewhere.
The Cheshire Cat: Oh, you’re sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.”

“Or else what?” said Alice, for the Knight had made a sudden pause.
“Or else it doesn’t, you know.”

Peter Pan Illustration

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”


“Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning. ”


“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”


“All children, except one, grow up.”


“Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time.”


“You need not be sorry for her. She was one of the kind that likes to grow up. In the end she grew up of her own free will a day quicker than the other girls.”


“There could not have been a lovelier sight; but there was none to see it except a little boy who was staring in at the window. He had ecstasies innumerable that other children can never know; but he was looking through the window at the one joy from which he must be for ever barred.”

Aboard Captain Hook's Ship

“Stars are beautiful, but they may not take part in anything, they must just look on forever.”


“If you cannot teach me to fly, teach me to sing.”


“All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.”


“If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one, you may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colors suspended in the darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape, and the colors become so vivid that with another squeeze they must go on fire.”


“Can anything harm us, mother, after the night-lights are lit?”
“Nothing, precious,” she said; “they are the eyes a mother leaves behind her to guard her children.”


“For long the two enemies looked at one another, Hook shuddering slightly, and Peter with the strange smile upon his face.
“So, Pan,” said Hook at last, “this is all your doing.”
“Ay, James Hook,” came the stern answer, “it is all my doing.”
“Proud and insolent youth,” said Hook, “prepare to meet thy doom.”
“Dark and sinister man,“For long the two enemies looked at one another, Hook shuddering slightly, and Peter with the strange smile upon his face.
“Dark and sinister man,” Peter answered, “have at thee.”

Peter Pan vs. Captain Hook

“..children know such a lot now, they soon don’t believe in fairies, and every time a child says, ‘I don’t believe in fairies,’ there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead.”


“Stars are beautiful, but they may not take an active part in anything, they must just look on for ever. It is a punishment put on them for something they did so long ago that no star now knows what it was. So the older ones have become glassy-eyed and seldom speak (winking is the star language), but the little ones still wonder.”


“She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes, one within the other, that come from the puzzling East, however many you discover there is always one more; and her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner.”
