Inspirational Quotes and Lessons Learned from Disney’s Cruella

One of my favorite things about Disney movies is that they always have a great message and some lessons we can take away and apply to our own lives. Even though Disney’s Cruella is a movie about one of the greatest and some might say most evil villains of all time, it is packed with tons of great inspirational quotes and lessons. In this post, I will be sharing a few of my favorites from the film. If you are looking for funny quotes from Disney’s Cruella I have a post for that too.

Warning: This post may contain spoilers of the movie so continue at your own risk.

“A new day brings new opportunities” – Cruella

Cruella said after her mother died, “Sad story. Genius girl turns into stupid girl who gets her mother killed, and ends up alone. But a new day brings new opportunities or at least a couple of petty thieves. Horace and Jasper.” I think it is important to remember to be grateful for each new day of life we are given. We should focus on the future and the new opportunity we are given to become the person we want to be and do the things we want to do. Each new day will bring its challenges but with them will come new and exciting adventures.

“From the very beginning, I’ve always made a statement. Not everyone appreciated that, but I wasn’t for everyone.” – Cruella

One of the hardest lessons to learn in life is that no matter what you do you can’t please everyone and not everyone is going to like you. This is personally hard for me because I am a people pleaser and just try to be nice to everyone. Just know that you need to be your true self and not change to please others. Not everyone will appreciate it but the important people around you will and that is what truly matters. Most important though is that you will be happy being you.

“But as good as things were, I felt I was meant for more in this life. I just didn’t know what” – Cruella

Let me preface this by saying first and most importantly it is important for us to look for the good in every situation and count our blessings. We will be happier in life if we can find the positive things in our current state in life. That being said I also think it is very important that we aren’t complacent. We should always be striving to progress in life and reach new heights. Our potential is far greater than we can possibly imagine and we will never reach it if we stop trying to stretch ourselves.

“Cruella was in a box a long time, now Estella can be the one who makes guest appearances!” -Cruella

Similar to the previous quote, sometimes because of the judgments we receive from others, it is hard to embrace who we really are or who we are trying to become. Horace and Jasper, Estella’s best friends did not even like Cruella at first but eventually, they were able to get along.

“From an early age I realized I saw the world differently than everyone else.” – Cruella

If you think about all of the great people of history, they probably saw the world differently than most. Jeff Bezos saw the future of bookstores and turned it into a billion-dollar e-commerce enterprise. Elon Musk has sometimes crazy dreams for the future of transportation and energy. Walt Disney had a crazy idea for a theme park but yet look at the success of Disneyland. Thinking or being different isn’t a bad thing but instead will help us fulfill our purpose during our life.

“I’m not like her, I’m better.” – Cruella

This is one of my favorite quotes from the movie. Cruella is comparing herself to her birth mother, the Baroness. Cruella, although a villain, proves to not be as evil as her mother. Although I don’t think we should compare ourselves with others, I think we should compare our current selves with our past selves and hopefully, we can say the same. Am I better than me a day, week, or even years ago? If not, what can I do today to be better!

“It’s funny how those happy accidents can change the whole direction of your life.” – Cruella

Cruella had a rough childhood but look at how strong, talented, and driven she became because of those challenges. I have noticed that in my life when an accident happens or a door closes it always seems to work out for the best. After being let go from one job, I was able to find an even better opportunity. I think we can all recall times in our lives when an “accident” turned into a great opportunity. In the end, it comes down to how we choose to react to life.

“You can’t care about anyone else. Everyone else is an obstacle. You care what an obstacle wants or feels you’re dead. If I cared about any one or thing I might have died like so many brilliant women with a drawer full of unseen genius and a heart full of sad bitterness.” – Baroness

The baroness really is an evil person but I think her point is somewhat valid. No, we shouldn’t push people off a cliff if they are an obstacle, but we shouldn’t let anything or anyone prevent us from reaching our dream. It’s often said that we are a reflection of the people we hang around the most, so if those people are obstacles from you reaching your potential maybe we should limit our associations with them. Do you ever wonder how many people had life or world-changing ideas that took them to the grave because they were too scared to try? Sad to think about.

I hope you enjoyed these inspirational quotes from Disney’s Cruella. Did you notice any that I missed? What is your favorite lesson learned from Disney’s Cruella.
