Originally created by Carlo Collodi in 'The Adventures Of Pinocchio', 1883, Jiminy Cricket is a character that has been remodeled and reshaped into various forms of fiction with time.

Walt Disney took the character and made several adaptations out of it, adding more layers to his character. In the movie, Jiminy Cricket helps Pinocchio realize the several elements of human consciousness and distinguish between the rights and the wrongs, the goods, and the evils.

He has been depicted as a fragment of the consciousness, a guide, and an insect (cricket) who can sing and engage in wise talks. It can be said that Jiminy Cricket is present within the consciousness of every individual and this consciousness evolves one into a good or an evil person depending on their actions. The consciousness that Jiminy Cricket vouches for draws influence mainly from the verses of the Bible. So check out these Jiminy Cricket quotes that are filled with motivation to pursue the path of righteousness and self-belief.
