Needing a little "Hakuna Matata!" to pick up your day? All the stress of daily life leaving a bit of a Scar in your happiness? Look no further for funny and inspirational quotes than the 1994 classic The Lion King! A love movie filled with the joy, romance, trepidation, and tragedy essential to any coming of age story, The Lion King explores "The Circle of Life," the idea that "you should never take more than you give." Let these quotes remind you that, like Simba, misfortune and tragedy don't have to define our futures.
Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.
Oh, and just between us, you might want to work on that little roar of yours. Hmm?
There’s a good lad. You run along now and have fun. And remember… its our little secret.
Oh, Simba, you must understand. The pressures of ruling a kingdom…
Temper, temper. I wouldn’t *dream* of challenging you.
I’m only brave when I *have* to be. Simba, being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble.
Now this looks familiar. Hmmmm, where have I seen this before? Let me think… Oh, yes, I remember! This is just the way your father looked before he died. And here’s my little secret…I killed Mufasa.
Run away Simba…Run. Run away and never return.
Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.
I was first in line, until the little hair ball was born!
Remember who you are. You are my son, and the one true King. Remember who you are.
I despise guessing games.
Oooh… I quiver with *fear*…
Ahh, so you haven’t told them your little secret. Well, Simba, now’s your chance to tell them. Tell them who is responsible for Mufasa’s death!
But Simba, I am family! It’s the hyenas, who are the real enemy! It was their fault! It was their idea!
Where is your hunting party? They’re not doing their job.
I’m surrounded by idiots…
If it weren’t for you Mufasa would still be alive. It’s your fault he’s dead. Do you deny it?
And he’s absolutely right! It’s far too dangerous. Only the bravest lions go there.
A king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun.
Simba, it’s to die for.
No, Simba, you’re in trouble again. But this time, Daddy isn’t here to save you. And now everyone knows *why*!
Don’t turn your back on me, Scar!
You know the law: never mention that name in my presence. I am the king!
You’re in trouble again. But this time Daddy isn’t here to save you and now everyone knows *why*!
You run along now, and have fun. And remember… it’s our little secret
Truth? But, truth is in the eye of the behol.
Mufasa’s death was a terrible tragedy; but to lose Simba, who had barely begun to live… For me it is a deep personal loss. So it is with a heavy heart that I assume the throne. Yet, out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new era… in which lion and hyena come together, in a great and glorious future!
Long live the king
You deliberately disobeyed me!
Look, Simba. Everything the light touches is our kingdom.
Well, forgive me for not leaping for joy. Bad back, you know.
When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.
I’m the king. I can do whatever I want.
What am I going to do with him?
There’s more to being a king than getting your way all the time.
Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars….So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I.
Whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you, and so will I.
It’s the lioness’s job to do the hunting.
Well, as far as brains go, I got the lion’s share. But, when it comes to brute strength… I’m afraid I’m at the shallow end of the gene pool.
Oh, must this all end in violence? I’d hate to be responsible for the death of a family member.
Out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new era
Oops! Oh, dear, I’ve said too much! Well, I suppose you’d have found out sooner or later, you being so clever and all. Just promise me you’ll never visit that dreadful place!
A king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, Simba, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.
You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of life.
I’m *ten* times the king Mufasa was!
Oh, Zazu, do lighten up. Sing something with a little bounce in it.
Before sunrise, he’s *your* son.
