Walt Disney Quotes on Business
"My biggest problem? Well, I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my life. MONEY. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true. From the very start it was a problem. Getting the money to open Disneyland. About seventeen million, it took. And we had everything mortgaged, including my family. But we were able to get it open and in the ten or eleven years now we have been pouring more money back in. In other words, like the old farmer, you have to pour it back into the ground if you want it to grow. That's my brother's philosophy and mine, too." Walt Disney
"You can dream, you can create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world… but it requires people to make the dream a reality." Walt Disney

"All you've got to do is own up to your ignorance honestly, and you'll find people who are eager to fill your head with information." Walt Disney

"If we are to have a true and honest culture, we must be aware of the self-appointed tyrant who puts a fence around painting or art or music or literature and shouts 'This is my preserve. Think as I do or keep out.'" Walt Disney.
"We get advance reactions to our movies at previews and if the women's reaction is good, I feel fine. If it is adverse, I begin to worry. I feel women are more honest about this than men. The men are more sentimental in one way - that is, they will sit there with tears streaming down their faces and will then come out and say "Mfff." They won't admit it, because they are more cynical or shy or think it unmanly to show their sentiment. But the children, of course, are the most honest of all." Walt Disney.
"Since the beginning of mankind, the fable-tellers have not only given us entertainment but a kind of wisdom, humor, and understanding that, like all true art, remains imperishable through the ages."Walt Disney.
"Do a good job. You don't have to worry about the money; it will take care of itself. Just do your best work - then try to trump it." Walt Disney.
"I don't pose as an authority on anything at all, I follow the opinions of the ordinary people I meet, and I take pride in the close-knit teamwork within my organization." Walt Disney.
"Inside every sophisticated grownup adult is a little kid just dying to get out." Walt Disney.
