It is unbelievable how difficult it can be to choose the perfect quote to share with our Instagram communities! You want your content to resonate with your followers and encourage them to engage with comments and likes. Despite the many thousands of quotes throughout the internet I usually browse about ten web pages of quotes before choosing the ideal quote for my people which is why I compiled this list of my 52 faves (1 for each week!)

Sharing a great quote on a neatly created banner is an excellent Instagram feed “filler”, these work great on the days when you haven’t finished editing a video, didn’t have a recent photoshoot or haven’t gone anywhere interesting to snap some pics for your content. Simply pick a nice quote and use it for your next Instagram post.
