Walt Disney – wow, what an inspiration;
Walt Disney, the founder of Disney and all the famous cartoons we used to watch when we were younger, took a passion for drawing and animation and turned it into one of the biggest multi-billion dollar companies in the world.
Disney originally started locally, selling his own drawings and paintings, before taking on other roles such as being a cartoonist for the school paper.
As time passed Walt became more involved with animation and opened his own business. It was so popular that before long he had his own studio.
But Disney had to declare bankruptcy, and it wasn’t until him and his brother moved to Hollywood and started again, that Disney started to become successful.
Here’s a compilation of the best and most memorable Walt Disney quotes:
