What better way to celebrate Father's Day than with some words of wisdom from The Lion King's poppa cat Mufasa? Below, Digital Spy presents eight great quotes from the character so brilliantly brought to life by the soothing voice of James Earl Jones:
"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope."
"When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life."
"You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life."
"Remember who you are. You are my son, and the one true king. Remember who you are."
"There's more to being a king than getting your way all the time."
"Simba, I'm only brave when I have to be. Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble."
"Simba, let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars... So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I."
"A king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, Simba, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king."
