19 Inspirational Quotes from Children's Books & Films

I'm a big fan of fairytales and children's stories, and not only for the magical characters and colourful illustrations. Children's books and films are filled with some pretty wise and inspirational quotes about life and love (probably more so than most adult books and films!)

It was pretty hard to narrow this down as there are so many wonderful quotes out there (so this might need a 'part two') but here's a few highlights from my findings.
