Oogway Quotes:

  • Oogway: [the two duel in the Spirit Realm] You've grown stronger!

    Kai: Five *hundred* years in the Spirit Realm; you pick up a thing or two.

    [brandishes jade amulets]

    Kai: I have taken the chi of ever master here!

    Oogway: [gasps] No...

    Kai: [chuckles] Yes... and soon, I will have *your* power, too!

    Oogway: [pleading] When will you realize the more you take, the less you have?

  • [first lines]

    Oogway: Inner peace... inner peace.

    [a flower petal falls on his nose]

    Oogway: Itchy nose...

  • Oogway: [to PO] You must save the world.

  • Po: Maybe I should just quit and go back to making noodles.

    Oogway: Quit, don't quit... Noodles, don't noodles... You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

  • Oogway: My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours, until you let go of the illusion of control.

    Shifu: Illusion?

    Oogway: Yes.

    [points at peach tree]

    Oogway: Look at this tree, Shifu. I cannot make it blossom when it suits me, nor make it bear fruit before its time.

    Shifu: But there are things we *can* control.

    [kicks the tree so that peaches fall]

    Shifu: I can control when the fruit will fall!

    [he slices a peach and throws the pit to the ground]

    Shifu: I can control where to plant the seed! That is no illusion, Master!

    Oogway: Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.

    Shifu: But a peach cannot defeat Tai Lung!

    Oogway: [folding dirt over the peach pit] Maybe it *can*, if you are willing to guide it, to nurture it. To believe in it.

    Shifu: But how? How? I need your help, master!

    Oogway: No, you just need to believe. Promise me, Shifu. Promise me you will believe.

    Shifu: I... I will try.

  • Oogway: One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.

  • Oogway: There are no accidents.

    Shifu: [sighs] Yes, I know. You said that already. Twice.

    Oogway: Well, that was no accident either.

    Shifu: Thrice.

  • Oogway: There are no accidents.

  • Oogway: My time has come.

    [hands his staff to Shifu]

    Shifu: What? What are you...?

    Oogway: You must now continue your journey without me.

    Shifu: No! WAIT! Master! You can't leave me!

    Oogway: You must believe...

    Shifu: MASTER!

    [in a haze of peach blossoms, Oogway ascends to the heavens]

  • Shifu: But who? Who is worthy to be trusted with the secret to limitless power? To become the Dragon Warrior?

    Oogway: I don't know.

  • Oogway: [walking towards Po] Ah! I see that you have found the Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom!

    Po: [Po turns around with a lot of peaches stuffed in his mouth] Is that what this is? I'm so sorry! I just thought it was a regular peach tree!

    Oogway: I understand. You eat when you are upset.

    Po: Upset? I'm not upset. Why, what makes you think I'm upset?

    Oogway: So why *are* you upset?

    Po: [sighs] I probably sucked more today than anybody in the history of kung fu. In the history of China. In the history of sucking!

  • Po: [dazed] What are you pointing at? Oh! Okay. Sorry, I just wanted to see who the Dragon Warrior was.

    Oogway: How interesting.

    Tigress: Master, are you pointing at... me?

    Oogway: Him.

    Po: Who?

    [Moves around, Oogway's finger follows him]

    Oogway: You.

    Po: What?

    Oogway: [Raising Po's arm with his stick] The universe has brought us the Dragon Warrior!

    Po: What?

    TigressCraneMonkeyMantisViper: What?

    Shifu: WHAT?

    Mr. Ping: WHAT?

  • Oogway: Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but Today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

  • Shifu: Master! I have... it's very bad news!

    Oogway: Ah, Shifu. There is just news. There is no good or bad.

    Shifu: Master, your vision. Your vision was right! Tai-Lung has broken out of prison! He's on his way!


    Oogway: That IS bad news.
