30 A Cinderella Story Quotes on Your Own Happily Ever After

If you love fairy tales with happy endings, then you’ll enjoy this list of A Cinderella Story quotes!

A Cinderella Story takes a more modern approach to our favorite Disney animated movie, Cinderella. Though it’s not made up of castles, princes, and talking animals, this movie is certainly more relatable.

Sam, an orphaned girl, lives with her stepmother, Fiona, and two stepsisters. Together, they manage her late dad’s diner. However, she’s enslaved by Fiona and poorly treated by her two stepsisters; she’s also become an outcast in her school.

However, she meets Austin, falls in love, and learns more about herself and her rights. At the end of the movie, like in Cinderella, she lived happily ever after! She also learned not to depend on others; instead, she took everything into her own hands and fought for her happiness herself!

Read through the collection to gain meaningful wisdom from Sam’s experiences. Also, if you’re a fan, we’re sure you’ll enjoy every line we’ve included in the list!

Travel back to this hit movie and read through the quotes below.

And don’t forget to check out these Love Don’t Cost a Thing quotes and Never Been Kissed quotes.
