You do not need to restrict your text to quotes made by famous people; you can also add sayings, sage pieces of wisdom, jokes, puns and quips.

Where To Find Popular Quotations

  • Search dedicated popular quotation sites.
  • Do a web search or image search  for popular quotations and the category, (for example “popular motivational quotes”, “business quotes” “funny quotes”.
  • Pinterest is a good source to find popular picture quotes. Find popular quotations, jokes, sayings and add them to your own background images. Look for those that have been repinned the most.
  • Reproduce quotes you have seen on Facebook, judging popularity by how many shares they have had. You may not want to publish yours straight away, even if it is on your own image; your friends may have shared the quote already. To quote Marie Antoinette “There is nothing new except what has been forgotten.”
  • Look on different social networks to where you are going to post yours. For example, if you are going to post on Facebook look on G+ or vice versa.
  • Yourself:be creative and think up some yourself, or adapt other quotes.
  • Note down funny and clever remarks you hear on TV. Comedians are a good source for this.
