Wisdom from Kung Fu Panda

I spent this rainy Saturday afternoon watching Kung Fu Panda 3 with my niece and nephew.

There’s a lot of wisdom in the Kung Fu Panda franchise. Here are some of my favorite quotes from all three movies.

“If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be better than what you are.” — Master Shifu

“You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.” — Master Oogway

“To make something special you just have to believe it’s special.” — Mr. Ping

“One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.” — Master Oogway

“There is no secret ingredient. It’s just you.” — Po

“You gotta let go of that stuff from past, because it just doesn’t matter! The only thing that matters is what you choose to be now.” — Po

“Your story may not have such a happy beginning but that does not make you who you are, it is the rest of it — who you choose to be.” — Soothsayer

“Your mind is like this water, my friend. When it gets agitated, it becomes difficult to see. But if you allow it to settle, the answer becomes clear.” — Master Oogway

Keep going…
