Before we jump into the best quotes from Encanto, it’s important to get to know the characters. Their personalities and magical powers play into a lot of their lines!

Let’s start with the matriarch of the family, Abuela Alma.

Abuela doesn’t have any powers, but after her husband Pedro passed away, the candle she carried to get her oldest kids to safety became magical and created the casita that they all live in today.

Abuela Alma and Pedro’s kids are triplets: Bruno, Pepa, and Julieta.

Bruno can see the future and is an outcast because of it. Hence why we don’t talk about Bruno!

Pepa can control the weather with her mood, which I bet we all wish we could do when it rains on a day you’d like to be outside!

Pepa is married to Felix and they also have three kids, Antonio, Camilo, and Dolores.

Antonio can talk to animals, so he always has some kind of animals following him!

Camilo can shape shift and as a young boy, definitely gets up to trouble with his power!

Dolores has super hearing – as in, she can even hear people blink from far away!

Julieta can heal illness through food, so as you can imagine is the family cook.

Julieta is married to Agustín and they have three kids, Isabela, Luisa, and Mirabel.

Isabela has a green thumb and can grow lots of plants, trees, and flowers quickly.

Luisa has super strength and is often asked to do the heavy-lifting around the home.

Mirabel is the main character in the movie and she worries that she doesn’t have a power. But in the end, she discovers that her power is that she can communicate with the casita.

Phew! Now that you know the key facts about everyone in the Madrigal family, let’s learn about the best quotes from Encanto.

The movie is packed with memorable quotes that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.

And lucky for you, I’ve gathered some of the best ones in this section. So get ready to feel all the feels and join the Madrigal family on their journey.

I am sorry that your life is so great! – Mirabel

Today’s the day I make my family proud. – Mirabel

Sometimes family weirdos get a bad rap. – Mirabel

You’re exactly what this family needs. – Bruno to Mirabel

You’re just as special as anyone else in this family. – Julieta

I wish you could see yourself the way I do. You are perfect just like this. You’re just as special as anyone else in this family. – Julieta

Welcome to the Family Madrigal. There’s so many stairs in the Casa Madrigal. You think there would be another way to get so high ’cause we’re magic, but no. – Mirabel

Abuela Alma: Open your eyes.
Mirabel: This is where our magic comes from?
Abuela Alma: Mmhmm. This candle holds the miracle given to our family.

You have to stop, Mirabel! The cracks started with you. Bruno left because of you. Luisa’s losing her powers. Isabela’s out of control because of you. I don’t know why you weren’t given a gift, but it is not an excuse for you to hurt this family! – Abuela Alma

Mirabel quotes

Hold on tight, amigos y amigas, because we’re diving deep into the mind of Mirabel Madrigal (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz) from Disney’s Encanto.

She’s the main character, but don’t let her sweetness fool you. This chica’s got some serious spunk and sass up her sleeve.

From her quick wit to her fiery spirit, Mirabel is someone you don’t want to mess with. But don’t worry, we’re not here to start any trouble.

We’re here to hear the wisdom that escapes her lips with each passing moment on screen.

So sit back, get cozy, and let’s hear what this Madrigal has to say. ¡Vamos!

Wait – how do I save a miracle?

All I need is a change. All I need is a chance.

The miracle is dying because of you!

I think it’s time you learn you are more than just your gift.

The miracle is not some magic that you’ve got. The miracle is you.

The truth is, gift or no gift, I am just as special as the rest of my family.

Even in our darkest moments, there’s light where you least expect it.

So full of stars and everyone wants to shine. But the stars don’t shine, they burn.

I wasn’t trying to ruin your life. Some of us have bigger problems, you selfish, entitled princess!

I broke into Bruno’s tower. I found his last vision. The family’s in trouble. The magic is dying. The house is breaking. Luisa’s gift is fading. And I think it’s all because of me.

I will never be good enough for you, will I? No matter how hard I try… No matter how hard any of us tries. Luisa will never be strong enough. Isabela won’t be perfect enough. Bruno left our family because you only saw the worst in him.

Isabela quotes

So, let’s delve into some of her best quotes and see if we can’t pick up some tips on how to make our own meals more magical.

So much hides behind my smile.

It’s a dream when we work as a team.

What could I do if I just knew it didn’t need to be perfect?

I just made something unexpected. Something sharp. Something new. It’s not symmetrical or perfect, but it’s beautiful. And it’s mine. What else can I do?

Luisa quotes

You know her, you love her, she’s got the power of super strength, and she’s not afraid to use it. And boy, does Luisa (voiced by Jess Darrow) have a way with words.

In this section, I’ve compiled some of her most memorable quotes, ranging from the uplifting to the downright sassy.

So, sit back, relax, and let’s dive into the mind of Luisa Madrigal.

Who am I if I can’t carry it at all?

I may not be strong, but I’m getting wiser.

It’s pressure like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop.

Watch as she buckles and bends, but never breaks.

I move mountains. I move churches. And I glow ’cause I know what my worth is.

If I could shake the crushing weight of expectations, would that free up some room for joy or relaxation or simple pleasure?

Despite his uncanny ability to see the future, Bruno (John Leguizamo) seems to be quite the outcast in the world of Disney’s Encanto.
