With finals season finally upon us, we need all the motivation we can get to power through those essays and exams. Luckily, the Clog has scoured a long list of DreamWorks movies to hand-pick a series of the most inspirational quotes to revive your spirits.

For those who may feel a little lost right now when it comes to the future

“One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.” — “Kung Fu Panda”

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called present.” — “Kung Fu Panda”

“I guess destiny isn’t the path chosen for us, but the path we choose for ourselves.” — “Megamind”

For those who feel a little discouraged

You don’t have to live at the top of the reef to be somebody.” — “Shark Tale”

“After a while, you learn to ignore the names people call you and just trust who you are.” —”Shrek the Third” 

“There’s a benefit from losing: You get to learn from your mistakes.” — “Megamind”

“But with love comes loss. … It’s part of the deal. Sometimes it hurts, but in the end, it’s all worth it. There’s no greater gift than love.” — “How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World”

For those who want to be encouraged

Dreams can begin small. You just have to … bet it all. Bet it all!” — “Shark Tale”

Ultimately, the movies we watched when we were little may seem a little childish to us now, but the inspirational quotes and motivation we received from them are timeless.
