From Infinity and Beyond
Beyond happy endings and uplifting story lines, the coupling of technology to fantasy by Disney was the reconciling of something totally ruled by finality, by utilitarian purpose, to a reality that is pleasure in and of itself, it was the reconciling of temporality to poetry. That the world one lived in was so prodigal to grant the wonderful results of the association of these two polarities was not just a revelation, but cumulating. It was Disney’s generosity.
