 1  Overreacting to an argument with your mom (ie, tearing up her embroidery work) is so unnecessary. It's easier to talk things out with a human mom than have to settle the score with a literal Mama Bear.
—Merida, Brave
 2  One day, your annoying little sister is going to save your butt from a doomed, icy, cold, solitary life. Be nice to her already and save the drama for another day.
—Elsa, Frozen
 3  Look up at the night sky every so often. You'll find magic there.
—Rapunzel, Tangled
 4  Pretty boys who snag you with a love-at-first-sight vibe are worth the heartache. They'll lead you to someone who's worthy of your awesomeness.
—Anna, Frozen
 5  It pays to be good to your furry friends. Have courage and be kind... after all, it takes a courageous and kind girl to befriend rats.

 8  When doing arts and crafts, like experimenting on a spinning wheel, take care at all times. Wear a thimble, if possible.
