I didn’t know when I began to watch this film that I’d be jotting down Cars 3 Quotes. I mean, you don’t really see many inspirational quotes for kids. As you know, I don’t really have a Cars aged son anymore. But, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a good message when I hear/see one. I watched this film for the first time on a flight to LA. For me, it’s nostalgic, the kind of film that takes me back to my earliest years of motherhood. In a way, I’ve grown as an adult to the Cars franchise, so I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to see it. I expected exceptional animation and pure entertainment. What I didn’t expect the super deep, next level inspirational quotes. So I thought it would be fun to write them down and share them with you. I even made some shareable graphics for your Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook feeds.
