Ladies and Gentlemen of the House of Mouse don’t be a fool, no sir’ee. Here’s how to live to be a hundred and three!

Always let your conscience be your guide!

I will demonstrate this advice, now.

Savour your youth and beauty because wicked queens, mean stepsisters and evil witches will try to steal ‘em from you every time.

That reminds me, don’t eat apples unless you know where they came from!

Avoid anyone who has a fiendish cackle, a sinister smile or a diabolical glare, not necessarily in that order.

Never sell your voice to a giant sea-witch just because you have a crush on some guy! It’s just not worth it!

When selecting footwear for the big dance, go ahead and write your name in your shoes.

There is nothing to see in the elephant graveyard. End of story.

If your first name is Sleeping and your last name is Beauty, don’t use a spinning wheel! Go out and buy a sewing machine!

And hey, don’t steal bread!

Maybe you’ll meet someone special, maybe you won’t.

Maybe you’ll have puppies, maybe you won’t.

Maybe you’ll join the circus and learn to fly!

Live in the jungle once, but leave before it makes you hard.

Live in the forest once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Treat your elders with respect, and don’t be fooled by bad advice.

If a guy named Foulfellow invites you to a place called Pleasure Island, don’t go! I mean, he’s got the word ‘foul’ right in his name!

But trust me on the conscience thing!
