Notable and Quotable: Walt Disney


"Think beyond your lifetime if you want to accomplish something truly worthwhile."

Ran across this quote about two years back as I was reading about Walt and his plans. Can't even remember which book or article it was, but what a find! It stuck with me when I started thinking about this blog.

Wish the majority of suits at the Mouse House would think this way as well. Think beyond short term profits and what makes shareholders instantly happy.

Walt's advice is good for our personal lives as well. If we took this advice to heart, it seems to me that we would live a little bit differently as we make our mark in the world. Maybe a little more kindly, maybe a little more generously, maybe with a bit more purpose. Maybe even with the thought that there is more to life than just what we see here on earth.

Eternity is always right ahead of our short time here on the planet. Live well and wisely.
