Looking for inspirational quotes from the Wizard of Oz? We just love revisiting our favorite old movies — they're always good for a little nostalgia, and some of them are all-time classics. The Wizard of Oz is one of those movies, and it feels like we're still learning new things about the flick even though it's been almost 80 years since the film's original release. But eight decades or not, this film stands up. (In fact, it still inspires Halloween costumes and party themes to this day!)
What we've really taken away from this film, though, are all the beautiful messages its characters learned on their trek down the yellow brick road. With Scarecrow looking for his brain, the Tin Man aching for a heart, the Cowardly Lion seeking courage, and Dorothy wanting nothing more than to find her way back to her friends and family, this motley crew had a long journey before them. And as they made their way down that yellow brick road and to the Emerald City, they discovered the power of friendship, love, bravery, and wisdom along the way.
And though we'll always love the famous The Wizard of Oz quote, "There's no place like home," (because, truly, there is no place quite as good as home) there are plenty of wise words to live by in this film. They don't all come from the Wizard, either. Dorothy, Glinda, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion all have their share of lines and lessons we hold dear in our hearts. By the end of the flick, all these characters had found what they were looking for — and they'd given us these beautiful inspirational quotes from The Wizard of Oz movie in the process. And yes, those songs get stuck in our head, too — but we don't mind singing along all day to "Follow the Yellow Brick Road." Wouldn't you agree?
