"All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."
It wasn't until Walt was able to successfully create animation with audio--on the heels of Al Jolsen's The Jazz Singer, that Walt Finally seemed to make it--but the demands he placed on himself and his colleagues for excellence and novelty strained his family life, business life and his own mental health --eventually suffering a breakdown, realizing at last the need to balance work with leisure. He did come back stronger, but continued to struggle with a need not only to outdo himself, but ultimately, whether he realized it or not at the time, with a desire to create leisure for the common man. Very Interesting, indeed, that what Disney World represents today is Leisure itself, fantasy, and family.
