Are you looking for a yearbook quote for your senior yearbook? Something memorable, funny and inspirational? Well, you came to the right place. This article will help guide you during the process of writing quotes and content for your school's yearbook. Whether you are writing a quote for your yearbook profile page or writing on a friend's page, yearbook quotes give you the opportunity to leave your mark. In other words, it is a time to leave an impression and conclude your academic year in a short message. It may seem like an assignment right now, but trust me, you will love looking back and enjoy reading all the funny messages and quotes your friends left behind.

So, how will you leave your mark? And what will you choose as your yearbook quote? There are several ways to answer this question, but first and foremost, always be yourself.

Types of yearbook quotes:

  • Inspirational quotes
  • Funny quotes
  • Ironic quotes
  • Heartfelt
  • Well wishes
  • Pick your own personal mantra
  • Give a shout-out to the teacher
  • Pick the right song that describes the time right now
  • Honor your friends

1. Write about a memorable moment you had at school.
The school year is full of so many memorable moments, but how do you pick the right one? Think of an experience that's short and sweet, and try to keep your message to about 3-4 lines.

2. Write about something that summarises your experience during high school.
What kind of student are you? Did you participate in any extracurricular activities? If you could describe your experience in one word, what would it be?

3. Write about your obstacles and how you overcame them.
Being a high school student comes with its own challenges. High school is hard, from trying to meet high expectations to the amount of homework to learning things you "won't need" in real life. Share with your fellow students how you overcame these challenges.

4. Share your future plans
What college or university will you attend? What will you major in? What kind of work or career path do you plan on? Where will you be five to ten years from now?

5. Make an inside joke.
Write down a time when you and your fellow classmates laughed together. Was there a shared moment that turned into an inside joke? What are the inside jokes about the school? What is your school's reputation?

6. Thank parents and teachers
Write a thank you message to your teacher or parents for their unwavering support throughout the school year. Let's be honest, you wouldn't be here without them. Write a couple of lines that are simple and straightforward and that show your appreciation. For example, "I couldn't have done it without you, Ms. X!"

7. Write a funny quote, something entertaining or something with meaning.
What's your personal mantra? Whether it's your own phrase or someone else's, quotes can be drawn from anywhere. When writing a yearbook quote, look for inspiration from someone you admire, and even explore quotes from your favorite movie, author, athlete, or public figure.

Here is a list of messages and quotes to share with your friends in the yearbook this year.
