”[Elsa] symbolizes all of us who just hold so much in, and we’re afraid, especially as women, to unleash our power, in fear that people aren’t going to like us or we’re going to put people off. So, it’s about embracing that, harnessing that, and letting it go, and it’s such a great message, for young girls especially.” - Idina Menzel

a few words from herb elliot, olympic running champion: 

"poetry, music, forest, oceans, solitude-they were what developed enormous spiritual strength. i came to realize that spirit, as much or more than physical conditioning, had to be stored up before a race."
