Never give up on your dreams. Many adventures still await. "Thanks for the adventure — now go have a new one!" —Ellie
Appreciate the little things. Throughout the movie, Carl is consumed by his desire for the “big adventure” that he never actually got to have with Ellie. In the end he realizes that his relationship with Ellie was the real adventure. We can learn from this by taking the time to appreciate the relationships in our lives, stopping to smell the roses, and enjoying the journey. Life is more about the journey than the destination.
