Memorable Quotes

It's no surprise that Disney / Pixar's Onward would be filled with heartwarming quotes that both inspire and resonate with the viewer.  When I listen for quotes that stand out for me in a movie, they tend to be ones that motivate me to want to be a better version of myself or bring a tear to my eye as I empathize with the characters in the movie.  Below are a few of my favorites:

  • "There's a mighty warrior inside of you; you just have to let him out." ~ Barley Lightfoot
  • "You have to take risks in life to have an adventure." ~ The Manticore
  • "And I think with a little bit of magic in your life, you can do just about anything." ~ Ian Lightfoot
  • "I never had a dad, but I always had you." ~ Ian Lightfoot
  • "[He's] very proud of the person you grew up to be." "I owe a lot of that to you." ~ Barley and Ian Lightfoot

You'll notice that two of my favorite quotes are about that bond between brothers.  As a mom with two young boys, watching this relationship on the big screen meant a lot to me.  Despite the fact that the brothers are so different and they don't always agree, it's obvious how much they love and care for each other - every step of this quest, just like they have throughout their lives.  I hope that my boys have a bond like Barley and Ian as they grow up! This movie has a little something for everyone - a tale of an adventurous quest mixed with a story of love and family.
