The best quotes for your Instagram

Let’s be honest, sometimes all you need after a long day is a quick quote that speaks to the heart. And since it’s birth in 2010, Instagram has become the perfect place to share beautifully designed quotes with your community.

Aside from being inspirational, it’s also fun to take these special words and bring them to life in new ways, through design. Whether you print them out and stick them on your bedroom wall, or, repurpose them as your phone's wallpaper, quotes have an eternal quality.

Since motivation can be a fickle thing, why not design a few key quotes that resonate with you and keep them up your sleeve for when you’re in need of a pick me up. Here are some Canva templates you can play with below.

Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor - Truman Capote

Change your thoughts and you change the world - Norman Vincent Peale

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today - H. Jackson Brown Jr.

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms - Iris Murdoch

No small act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted - Aesop

If you would like to create your own masterpiece from scratch, head to the Canva editor and tap on the Instagram Post template. From there, you can choose the font, background color, and elements you like. Go wild!

Design tip: When used in graphic images, quotes must take a central position in the design. Quotes are best represented with calligraphy or elegant sans serif fonts.
