15 Ways In Which Pixar Teaches You Everything About Life
12. What Your Identity Means - Helen
'Put these on. Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it.' Helen, The Incredibles. What it teaches: It is crucial to maintain who you are through every ordeal that you might be confronted with. Your identity matters more than we give it credit for. We must protect it even in the face of predicaments because at the end what matters is not what you do but who you are. Ask Batman.
11. We All Need Somebody - Dory
'No. No, you can't... STOP. Please don't go away. Please? No one's ever stuck with me for so long before. And if you leave... if you leave... I just, I remember things better with you. I do, look. P. Sherman, forty-two... forty-two... I remember it, I do. It's there, I know it is, because when I look at you, I can feel it. And-and I look at you, and I... and I'm home. Please... I don't want that to go away. I don't want to forget.' Dory, Finding Nemo. What it teaches: No one wants to be left alone. While we might have difficulty in accepting that, loneliness is one of the greatest fears humans have as social animals. It is essential to hold onto people, even if that entails admitting your fear of being left alone. We are at our best when with someone else someone we trust and love.
10. Making Sacrifices - Woody
'I can't stop Andy from growing up. But I wouldn't miss it for the world.' Woody, Toy Story 2. What it teaches: Coming from a mostly inanimate wooden cowboy, this teaches a fundamental lesson in acceptance. Through two lines, Woody tells us - as he realizes himself that the world comprises of inevitabilities that we must reconcile ourselves of. There are things that we can do absolutely nothing about and the only way to overcome this handicap is by accepting and making the most of it.
I'm Saahil from India and no, I don't own an elephant.
I write. I think P. G. Wodehouse might just be the greatest author of all times. Manhattan was definitely Woody Allen's masterpiece (yes, over Annie Hall). The Shawshank Redemption is overrated. I love debating. I've always dreamed of shooting zombies with a sawed-off during an apocalypse. I own a dog. The Sixth Sense was a fluke. Sheldon Cooper is probably the worst TV character right now. I play table tennis. I am socially awkward. I don't know how to end this. My editor's probably going to cream me for this. But, whatever.
