30 Funny Quotes About Friendship To Use For Your Next Instagram Caption

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

New selfie to post with your BFF? You need the perfect quote to pair it with.

Instagram! That fabulous social media platform all about great photos, and of course, even better photo captions.

While we’re following our favorite celebs, influencers, photographers, and meme-creators, we’re also following our friends on Instagram — and vice versa. Naturally, our Instagram feeds include pictures with those friends we know and love.

It may seem like quote captions are reserved for things like seflies or travel pics, but there are actually a lot of fantastic quotes about friendship that we can utilize to caption photos with our besties. Instead of just saying “We’re at the beach”, use a great quote. It’ll make your Instagram account all the more engaging and interesting to check out.


Here’s the thing about choosing quotes, though.

Sure, friendships have a lot of heartwarming qualities and serious conversations, but there’s something that we do with our friends more than anything. We laugh! Maybe it’s laughing at ourselves, or the various things we’ve been experienced together, but laughter is a central factor in every friendship. 

Our friends brighten our day, so why not have your Instagram captions that reflect the silliness and the joy of your friendships?

Funny quotes about friendship make the perfect caption to those pictures together. They are also a better reflection of that moment in time, rather than a simple description or random, aloof caption like like “squad.” Your friends will enjoy the hilarious quotes in your photos offer as well. They’ll make your pals laugh and smile while checking out the pics on your Instagram feed and they will appreciate the extra thought put into it. 


We all know life is crazy busy and when you’re trying to keep up with social media, you don’t always have the time to look up funny friendship quotes online before posting your pic.

Problem solved! 

This list has 30 hilarious quotes that will perfectly capture the fun and awesome relationship you have with your friends.

25 Funny Captions For Instagram Selfies To Make Your Followers LOL

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Everyone loves a quirky sense of humor.

“But first, let me take a selfie.”

Yes, that’s right. The notorious picture-taking style known as selfies.

Fun fact: It’s now a word found in the dictionary. Seriously! That’s just how powerful social media can be.

We see selfies all over our Instagram and social media feeds, and it seems everyone these days is in on the selfie craze.

And when you feel like posting one yourself, it can be tough to think of just the right funny quotes or saying to use as the perfect caption for your pics.

Whether you love them or hate them, sometimes we take a selfie for the simple fact that no one else is around to help us take a photo. What’s a person to do in that situation then?

There’s lots of different purposes for a selfie, too.

Maybe you’re on a fabulous vacation somewhere and want to share it with our friends, family, and followers.

Or you could just be having a really great hair and makeup day and need some photo documentation. No shame.

But again, even if you’ve studied up on how to capture a fantastic selfie for Instagram, you may have absolutely no idea what caption to put with it. Sure, you can be all aloof with some random reference that no one else will understand, but that’s no fun.

If you have a great sense of humor, why not show that off with a hilariously funny Instagram selfie caption?

If you’re trying to build up your social media following or are looking for new ways to engage with your followers, funny captions are way more interesting than just saying ‘mood’ or ‘hey’.

It’s social media. It’s okay to have some fun with it. You don’t always need to take yourself so seriously all the time.

If you’re reading this and are thinking, “Yeah, I want to have some witty captions for my selfies,” keep going.

Here is our collection of the 25 best funny quotes and sayings to use as Instagram selfie captions your followers will appreciate.

1. When you take a selfie at the gym.

“My favorite exercise is a cross between a lunge and a crunch … I call it lunch.”

2. Appearances are deceiving.

“I walk around like everything is fine, but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is sliding off.”

30 Funny Memes To Share With Your BFF For Friendship Day

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Because you and your BFF are true friendship goals.

There’s nothing quite like having a best friend. While we may be fortunate enough to have many friendships throughout our lifetime, a best friend is more than that.

Even though you and your BFF might not be related by blood, it certainly feels like a familial connection. Your best friend is the person who wants you to be happy and successful in life, but she’s also not afraid to speak up if she believes that someone or something is hurting your relationship instead of helping.

Our best friends are our protectors just as much as our source of joy. They are the people who we can confide in no matter what.

Nothing is off limits when it comes to conversations between best friends, because there’s a level of trust there that we don’t always have in regular friendships.

In those other friendships, we might be afraid to be completely honest at the risk of upsetting the other person but not with a best friend. We love them and vice-versa, so absolutely we tell it like it is to each other.

That lack of fear is a testament to a true friendship and something that defines what it means to have a best friend. You may have some incredibly deep conversations together, but you’ll have the most awesome time laughing together as well.

A best friend doesn’t necessarily have to be just your closest friend; It can be your spouse or a family member too. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a best friend, which is why it’s important to cherish the one – or ones – that you have.

With Friendship Day, it is the perfect opportunity to show your BFF just how much you appreciate having him or her in your life. This Friendship Day, share these fun best friend memes with your her, and make her cry, laugh, or even cry with laughter.

1. No, that is my best friend.

“When people call my best friend their best friend.”

2. Love you, boo.

“When you and your best friend start venting and talking about how much y’all love and appreciate each other.”

3. We’re pretty awesome.

“When you and your bestie are tight AF.”

4. Equal levels of crazy make great friendships.

“We’ll always be friends because you match my level of crazy.”

5. Meeting your match.

50 Friendship Quotes To Share With Your Best Friend, Human Diary And Other Half

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

True friendship is when you walk into their house and your WiFi connects automatically.

Defining the importance of friendship is difficult at times, but there’s no denying that the bond of two people who consider themselves best friends is powerful. And there’s no better way to appreciate this bond, than to let your best friend know how much you love them, using some of the best friendship quotes of all time.

Friendships teach us many things in life — to see loss, how to find peace with the people closes to us. Having someone as a best friend is a beautiful experience to cherish.

Psychologically, friends are important because they tend to see you in a way you don’t see yourself. So, they can always see through you. This means they can give you reminders of your strengths and dreams. They can tell you when you’re walking down the wrong path and call you out when you’re being selfish.

Remembering your tribe during the tough times of your life helps helps you cope with loneliness. It’s good to have someone that puts your strengths and flaws in a proper perspective.

And then, of course, having a best friend is really, really fun. And enjoying your life surrounded by the friends you’ve made into family is what life is really all about.

Friends are a good reminder to chill out and let loose even though life gets tough because nothing ever lasts anyway.

So read on through these best quotes about friendship to reminisce on the best people in your life. Share them with your friends — your sister from another mister, your childhood friend you haven’t seen for a while. Look to these quotes for comfort and remember to cherish the days ahead with your best friends by your side.

1. Women empower other women.

“The best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend each other, and think the other deserves the world.”

2. For the besties with anger issues.

“You and I are more than friends. We’re like a really small gang.”

3. The first lesson I was taught in college was to find your tribe and stick with them.

“Find your tribe. Love them hard.”

4. A real friend is forgiving and compassionate.

“That’s when I realized what a true friend was. Someone who would always love you-the imperfect you,

50 Friendship Day Memes To Share With Your Besties On Facebook

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Friends are the family that you pick.

Things can get difficult sometimes, and it’s always good to know that you have someone you can count on to be there when times are tough. Or even to talk to about things when times are good!

Having someone who is always there to give you a shoulder when you need to cry, an ear when you need to vent, or even just a hug when it feels like the world is crashing down around you is important. And that’s why friendship can be so unbelievably special.

Think about it: you find a random person in the world and decide that they’re the one you want to share your good and bad times with; they’re the people you would sacrifice a Saturday night in order to bring them soup when they’re sick. They’re the ones who you would fight for — and sometimes they’re the people that challenge you. Not only to make better (or worse!) decisions, but to be the person that you were meant to be.

Friends are the ones that know you better than you know yourself sometimes, and they’re the ones who can set you straight when you’re just not thinking right.

Sunday, August 4 is International Friendship Day, and it’s such a wonderful thing to celebrate!

Your friends can often be closer than siblings, and shape you in ways you never dreamed possible. So in honor of this most awesome day, grab your bestie, pull them close, and tell them how much you really appreciate them.

What better way to celebrate friendship than by laughing at some of the funniest memes the internet has to offer about situations you’ve likely found yourselves in before?

We’ve found the best friendship memes all about the joys and pure silliness that friendship represents, and we’re sharing them with you and your best friends.

These will make you laugh until you cry and say, “That’s us!”

So, on Friendship Day, appreciate your friends for the awesome people that they are. Look back on the hilarious and good times you’ve had together and make plans for the future so that you two can be racing each other down the halls of your nursing home and cracking jokes about the cute new doctor. They’re your friends, they’re your family.

Here are 50 of the best memes about friendship that will have you and your

National Tequila Day falls on the day after Taco Tuesday… coincidence? I THINK NOT.

Cheers and drink up, because July 24 is National Tequila Day!

Oh yes, tequila. That beloved yet terrifying alcoholic beverage that has the power to either leave us feeling fabulous or wondering what the heck just happened.

Whether it’s enjoying a delicious lime margarita with salt or having the sheer courage to attempt a straight shot, tequila is so popular that naturally, it has it’s own national holiday.

It’s certainly a lucrative business as well. Even celebrities have gotten in on the tequila-making business. Oscar-winning actor George Clooney partnered with his good friend Rande Gerber, who is also Cindy Crawford’s husband, to launch Casamigos Tequila.

The common denominator in these margarita variations though, is tequila. Without it, you’re not drinking a margarita. Sorry!

11. It’s genius!

“What is this Don Julio concoction? And may I partake in its consumption this weekend?”

12. May have to run out of coffee more often.

“I ran out of coffee this morning. Tequila seemed like a reasonable replacement. Everyone is so pretty today.”

11 Linkin Park Songs That Take On A Whole New Meaning After Chester Bennington’s Suicide

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

He shared so much raw beauty with those of us who needed it most.

The loss of Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington to suicide on July 20, 2017, left a deep whole in the hearts of many — not simply because he is “yet another” famous rock star in the long list of famous rock stars who died younger than they should have (he was just 41 years old at the time), but because his music spoke to us in such uniquely direct terms about the pain he struggled with throughout his far too brief life.

Bennington, like his music, was real and raw — about life, about addiction, about his craft, and yes, about the crippling hold of depression.

I don’t know if it’s a Gen X thing, a Xennial thing, or just an adult human trying to make it through this life thing, but as magnificent as Bennington was as an artist, the lyrics of the songs he composed have a magical quality enhanced by virtue of just how brutally real they are.

In a 2009 interview with Spin, he said, “This is just who I am, this is what I write about, what I do, and most of my work has been a reflection of what I’ve been going through in one way or another.”

I’d be willing to bet that at times more numerous than we can imagine over the past several decades, far more than one person found themselves saved in a moment of soul-crushing desperation when they played their favorite Linkin Park songs, took in the strength and security of Bennington’s literal and lyrical voice, and decided to stay here and “MakeChesterProud.

The depth of meaning in his words is all the more obvious now, of course.

Take a moment to look for yourself and find the messages within these excerpts from 11 of the best Linkin Park songs about depression, suicidal thoughts, addiction and even sexual abuse.

1. “Heavy” from One More Light (2017)

According to the lyrics page on Genius, this song “centers around the emotional weight of fixating on oneself… Chester Bennington said in an interview with 102.7 KIIS FM that ‘Heavy’ is a song of enlightenment, where a person takes a step back and realizes that a great deal of emotional strain is self-inflicted.”

The band shared that the lyrics were written based on their discussions amongst themselves about …

50 Great Patriotic Quotes To Help You Celebrate Freedom — And Have A Happy Fourth Of July

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

‘We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.’ — William Faulkner

Happy 4th of July!

On July 4, 1776, fifty-six leaders of the Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence. With this signing, our Founding Fathers declared themselves, along with the 2.5 million people living in the thirteen colonies, members of a new, independent nation: The United States of America.

This year’s Independence Day — July 4, 2019 — marks the 243rd anniversary of our country’s founding and the birth of the American dream.

Every year, patriotic folks across the nation celebrate our freedom and this momentous occasion with firework displays, BBQ parties, parades, outdoor games and lots (and lots!) of American-made beer, as scores of American flags can be seen soaring across the nation.

In fact, The National Retail Federation (NRF) reports that “Eighty-six percent of Americans plan to celebrate Independence Day this year, spending a total $6.7 billion on food items, according to NRF’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics. Cookouts, barbecues and picnics continue to be the most popular activity (61%), followed by fireworks and community celebrations (40%).”

Some of the most popular menu items include hamburgers, ribs, potato salad, and hot dogs.

Meanwhile, U.S. Census Bureau data released by the Department of Commerce estimates that in 2012, $368.6 million worth of fireworks were purchased from retailers across the country.

Check out this spectacular display of fireworks in New York City that took place a few years ago (pretty impressive, huh?):

Displays and events like these bring families, friends, and community members together to mark the day and put their American pride on full display.

And being able to celebrate this American pride and patriotism is one of this country’s greatest hallmarks.

Over the years, many have spoken out about what makes America such a remarkable country.

The following quotes and sayings from their statements are patriotic, inspiring, and thought-provoking.

They reflect on our country’s long, unique history as the land of the free and home of the brave. And they show us what it means to be an American and have pride in this country’s values, including liberty, freedom, opportunity, and honesty.

Love is an inexplicable feeling that everyone seeks to define.

We constantly seek the meaning and definition of love in romance books, rom-coms and romantic movies, love songs and love quotes written or spoken by the people we find most inspiring in our lives.

As if our own experiences are not enough, we listen to sweet stories shared by our friends and family, whether in person or on social media, not only because we love these people and hearing about their experiences so much, but also because we simply love love.

So it’s understandable that most of us truly enjoy finding relatable Instagram and Facebook stories from people who’s thoughts reinforce and validate what we feel about our own love life.

We’ve collected some of our favorite quotes about love that, at least in our opinion, perfectly describe this phenomenon.

Feel free to share these in your Instagram story, as the perfect caption to go along with that cute couple’s selfie you’ve been dying to share, or in private texts or DMs to your significant other.

So without further ado, here are the 40 best love quotes to use for good Instagram captions or stories.

20 Best Frank Ocean Songs With Raw, Genuine Lyrics For When Life Gets You Down

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Music for when you’re sad, anxious, lonely, contemplative, drunk, hungover, happy and nostalgic.

Anyone who knows me knows I love Frank Ocean. I have all his albums, know almost every word to each of his songs, flew to Los Angeles to see him live (I cried my eyes out the entire show) and have a shirt with his beautiful face on it.

But my devotion to him goes much further than simply liking and listening to his music. It’s much more transcendental than that. His music touches me in so many ways and each lyrically rich verse and melodic tune is significant for me in different ways and reminds me of certain stages in my life.

Frank Ocean’s first studio album, channel ORANGE, came out in the summer of 2012 when I was beginning my Junior year of college. When I listen to the album now, I’m instantly transported back to a time when my roommates and I would blast Frank Ocean’s songs in our apartment all day or when we would go to the beach and play his music through our portable speakers. That album got me through long, sleepless nights of homework and cramming for exams.

When I studied abroad in Spain, I would play his album whenever I was feeling homesick and missed my friends. It brought me so much comfort to know they were at home singing along to the same songs I was.

His highly anticipated second album, Blond, was released in the summer of 2016. It came out at a time when I was starting a new chapter in my life — a new house, new job and new friends. When I listen to that album, I think of my summer romance and the countless times we would drive around in his car, listening and singing along to Frank Ocean.

When I’m sad, anxious, lonely, contemplative, drunk, hungover, happy, stoned, aloof or nostalgic, I turn on Frank Ocean, and he helps put my mind at ease.

Despite his obvious musical talents, which have won him two Grammys and seven nominations, Frank Ocean just has an authentic aurora about him that captivates me, along with so many others.

Ocean is not a celebrity. He is an artist. He stays out of the spotlight as much as possible and uses his God-given talents to speak his truth, create and share with the public. His music …

30 Quotes From Famous Historical Leaders To Inspire You To Make Your Mark On The World

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Here’s a boost from other the movers and shakers of the world.

Who else remembers doing assignments in school on specific leaders throughout history? Kings and queens born into their stations, elected officials, activists — they all found their way into our textbooks.

Some leaders are more memorable than others due to what they accomplished in their position of political power. Take William Henry Harrison, for example. What did he do as the ninth president of the United States? Not much, since he died of pneumonia a month after his inauguration. To be fair, he was an accomplished military officer. But not the smartest move to forgo wearing a coat on a cold and wet day in early March while giving a two-hour long inaugural speech. Unfortunately, that’s William Henry Harrison’s legacy.

But the majority of US presidents are memorable in other, more positive, ways. We read books about them, watch movies and musicals about them, even willingly after grade school!

Presidents aren’t the only leaders we look up to, though. They don’t even represent most of us. In fact, all 45 presidents have been men. We have women to admire, too. And people with different ethnic backgrounds. A leader doesn’t have to be someone elected into office.

A leader is someone who influences thinking. They inspire and speak for voices often left unheard. They are people others want to follow.

There are times in our lives when we need to take a stand. History is made every day — every minute and every second all around the world. Why not be a part of it?

You can do so much with so little. With cultivation, a little can become a lot. A mere idea in a moment can become a movement.

First, however, you need to be in the right mindset to think big. Some of the biggest thinkers in history can help with that.

Here are thirty quotes from thirty different historical leaders that have made their mark on history to inspire you to make yours as well.

1. Remember to go forth with love in your heart.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

2. Rise up.

“Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.” — Alexander Hamilton

3. Self-reliance is key.

“I will have here but one mistress

25 Best Zooey Deschanel Quotes On Acting, Being ‘Too Cute’, Anxiety & Being Yourself

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

There’s nobody like her.

Some of us know her as Jess from New Girl, but Zooey Claire Deschanel has had so many more roles in movies and TV shows including 500 Days of Summer, Bridge to Terabithia, and Elf. Not only is Zooey an entertaining and talented actress, but she is also a singer/songwriter!

Zooey was born on January 17th, 1980 into a showbiz family. Her father Caleb Deschanel was a cinematographer and her mother Mary Jo Deschanel was an actress. Plus, her sister Emily Deschanel is an actress, director and producer best known for her work in the leading role in the crime drama Bones (in which Zooey has quest starred as well).

Zooey’s quirky, funny, and exciting personality has caught the attention of so many and has helped her land so many roles.

She is definitely one of those people who you see on TV and watch their interviews and think to yourself “hey, we’d be best friends!” Her personality shines through any screen, which is a truly amazing thing. I mean, if you didn’t know already, she befriended Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Hudson in grade school.

Zooey has accomplished so much in her career even though she only started it after she finished high school. She’s worked with comedy and drama projects, she can really do it all!

(Like me).

Live, laugh, love — Yeah, you know the drill.

I know, I know, you’ve heard it all before. And trust me, I get it. When you’re going through a rough time, sometimes inspirational words of wisdom are the absolute last thing you want to hear. Yeah, yeah. I know everything happens for a reason. Please keep your positive energy, cliches and self-care advice to yourself; I’ll handle this by napping too much and eating junk food — thanks.

I used to be firmly against “good vibes” of any kind. I was the relentlessly cynical friend who made it my job to always point out when the glass was really half empty. (Yes, I was a delight at parties.)
