The Land Before Time Quotes

  • Littlefoot: Mother, what's a long neck?
    Littlefoot's Mother: Well, that's what we are, Dear.
    Littlefoot: Why can't I play with that three-horn? We were having fun.
    Littlefoot's Mother: Well, we all stick to our own kinds. The three-horns, the spike-tails, the swimmers, the flyers... we never do anything together.
    Littlefoot: Why?
    Littlefoot's Mother: Because we're different. It's always been that way.
    Littlefoot: Well, why?
    Littlefoot's Mother: Oh, don't worry so much. When we reach the Great Valley, there'll be many many long necks for you to play with.
    Littlefoot: [sighs] I wish we were there now.
    Littlefoot's Mother: Well, it's a long way yet. Past the Great Rock that Looks Like a Long Neck, and pass the Mountains that Burn... still a long way, but we'll get there.
    Littlefoot: Have you ever seen the Great Valley?
    Littlefoot's Mother: No.
    Littlefoot: Well, how do you know it's really there?
    Littlefoot's Mother: Some things you see with your eyes, others you see with your heart.
    Littlefoot: I don't understand, Mother.
    Littlefoot's Mother: You will, my son. You will.

The same loving faces he looked into on the day of his birth. And they all grew up together in the valley, generation upon generation, each passing on to the next. The tale of their ancestor's journey to the valley long ago.


  • Narrator: One herd had only a single baby, their last hope for the future. And they called him Littlefoot. .All that remained of his herd was his mother, grandmother and his grandfather. He knew them by sight, by scent, and by their love. He knew they would be together, always.
