There’s a new word trending among millennials now and that’s ‘quodophile’. If you are a wordsmith, you might already know what it means. Well, quodophile defines a person who loves quotes. Do you happen to be one of them? We heard yes. Opening the web and reading some heart touching quotes and captions has a different kind of pleasure altogether. These quotes are probably one of the shortest forms of written expressions, yet profoundly meaningful.
Now that we are home stuck and socially distancing ourselves, some positive quotes might keep us optimistic and in good spirits. Taking this to heart, we’ve curated some cool quarantine-inspired quotes and captions to bring back that beautiful smile on your face.
Starting Off With 15 Quotations
1. “Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” – This is a quote by the American actress and media executive, Oprah Winfrey. It rightfully implies, if we maintain social distancing now, we will get back our best days soon.
2. “Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.” – Did we ever imagine even in our worst dream that the world will be on the verge of this pandemic? Never. But this quote by Joseph Campbell encourages us to turn the crisis into an opportunity to discover our ‘deeper powers’. And we are actually doing it, even subconsciously.
3. Home is a shelter for storms- all sorts of storms. – What can be more perfect than this quote by William J. Bennett at this moment? On this note, we tell y’all once again to stay at home as much as possible. The storm outside has taken the form of a pandemic and home, and only home can keep us safe now.
4. “Don’t think of introversion as something that needs to be cured… Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to.” – While extroverts are dying to socialize now, introverts are actually finding peace amid quarantine. This quote by the American writer Susan Cain is deeply motivating. Spend the quarantine time by doing things that make you happy, be it cooking, or painting on the canvas, or reading a good novel. The choice is yours.
5. “What a lovely surprise to finally discover how unlonely being alone can be.” – Being alone gives us the opportunity to focus on ourselves better. We get enough time to think about versatile aspects, identify our hidden strengths and work on our weaknesses. This quote by actress Ellen Burstyn is true to every bit.
6. “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less”. -Whatever we are going through is unfortunate. But we can at least not panic, understand the situation and do the needful to put the calamities at bay soon. Take some inspiration from the above quote by Marie Curie.
7. “Life imposes things on you that you can’t control, but you still have the choice of how you’re going to live through this.” -Here’s another amazing quote by Celine Dion. The pandemic wasn’t in our hands, but making efforts to combat the virus spread, that is the ‘choice’ we all need to make now for a better tomorrow.
8. “If you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars. – This quote by Rabindranation Tagore suggests that if we focus only on the negativity, we might miss the brighter side of things. The pandemic has cocooned us to the four walls of our homes, but then how can we forget to notice how mother nature is healing by herself. Air pollution has dropped,ozone hole is fixed, river waters have become clearer, rare animals are paying visits to the cities. What can be more beautiful than this?
9. “Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.” -Such a lovely quotation by poet Rumi it is! Our minds are the gateways to oodles of beliefs and notions. So, instead of feeling isolated, we can actually dig into them. After all, self-realization is also an art.
10. “If winter comes, can Spring be far behind?” -This is the concluding line of the poem Ode to the West Wind by Percy Bysshe Shelley. It’s a statement of hope implying that after the rough days, good times will surely come.
11. “It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome”. – This quote by William James instantly reminded me of Sikkim and the stringent measures they have taken and are still taking to be the only coronavirus free Indian State.
12. “There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day.” – This line by The Sherman Brothers is a testimony of positivity. Whatever happens, we must always keep faith in the good.
13. Doing “Namaste” is the new craze of 2020. It is how we say “Hi” these days. -Though the author of this quote is unknown, this is doing rounds on the internet nowadays. Now that’s something quirky and impactful at the same time.
14. “Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.” – This quote by Mason Cooley has perfectly unveiled the feeling of an ardent reader. Reading is a wonderful way to find respite when everything else falls apart. And it can take us to several places through our imaginations.
15. “One day this will be over and we will be grateful for life in ways we never felt possible before.” –This quote by Matt Haig is the ultimate truth that we need to swear by now. We all are pretty sure that life after quarantine will be much different than before. After passing one of the biggest storms in our lifetime, we will be more disciplined and responsible for sure.
The Social Media Captions
Here’s a soulful Facebook caption on social distancing. It reads as follows:
“Distance teaches us to appreciate the days that we are able to spend together and distance teaches us the definition of patience. It is a reminder that every moment together is special and every second together should be cherished.”
Some more out here:
“2020 is introverts’ reign. Extroverts vomiting. Introverts dancing!”
“I have come to know that we really can spend whole life in 2BHK and singing in balconies!”
“Nama’stay on the couch.”
“O Coronavirus, I wash my hands off you!” ( Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu)
“Not all banks are COVID-19 friendly.” (
“Have you ever eaten a clock? It’s so time-consuming.”
“I have noticed the growth of my nose’s hairs! And they are growing slowly! I have to do something for it! Social distancing gives you the pleasure of seeing minor details!”
“You don’t need a gym to remain healthy. I can do at home. Now I can save a lot of money. Thank you Quarantine and social distancing!”
