Daily Figment 81 - Book Update and Review


There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island and at the bottom of the Spanish Main...and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.

--Walt Disney, p. 155,The Quotable Walt disney


Thanks, Walt.

This is a great little book that is more for breezing through than for digesting all at once. The quotes are divided into sixteen different sections and cover various topics: animation, business, money, success, children, music, life and more. The book was compiled by the Disney Geeks hero Dave Smith, director of the Walt Disney Archives (hey, he's a librarian, just like me!).

The book is in a small format and probably has over 350 quotes. Disney did a great job with the graphic design of the pages--usually there are one or two quotes per page with an iconic graphic along side.

The following quote is for all of my blogging friends:

It is a curious thing that the more the world shrinks because of electronic communications, the more limitless becomes the province of storytelling.

--Walt Disney, p. 210.

This is a book that I wholeheartedly recommend for every level of Disney Geek. You will keep this one close at hand for inspiration, pleasure reading and discovery.
