Quotes by Hayao Miyazaki
Watching John Lasseter’s films, I think I can understand better than anyone that what he’s doing, is going straight ahead with his vision and working really hard to get that vision into film form. And I feel that my understanding this of him is my friendship towards him.— Hayao Miyazaki
I do all my work by storyboard, so as I draw the storyboard, the world gets more and more complex, and as a result, my North, South, East, West directions kind of shift and go off base, but it seems like my staff as well as the audience, doesn’t quite realize that this has happened. Don’t tell them about it.— Hayao Miyazaki
I wish I was better at art. I love some of the great artists of the 19th century and, compared to them, I just feel I lack this technique that they had. They have so much skill.— Hayao Miyazaki
Animators can only draw from their own experiences of pain and shock and emotions.— Hayao Miyazaki
I think it’s really good for a family or children to have a dog, cat, bird or whatever to grow up with.— Hayao Miyazaki
