Hayao Miyazaki is one of the three winners of the 87th Oscar Lifetime Achievement Award. He became the second Japanese filmmaker after Akira Kurosawa to win this award. Over the years, the animation films produced by Hayao Miyazaki have become unique in the world of animation with their superb technology, touching stories, and warm style.

Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away

1. No matter how hard the road ahead is, as long as you go in the right direction, no matter how bumpy it is, you will be closer to happiness than standing still.

2. I can only send you here. You have to walk the rest of the way by yourself and don’t look back.

3. I don’t know where I’m going, But I’m on my way.

4. There is a road in this world that you cannot take no matter what, and that is the wrong road. If you take a wrong step, you will be shattered into pieces.

5. People often lie to you to make you understand that sometimes, the only person you should trust is yourself.

6. There are many things that you cannot control by yourself. No matter how lonely you are, you still have to keep going. You are not allowed to stop or look back.
