I said this before in my Barcelona Quotes, Instagram captions and puns blogpost and in my Bali Quotes, Instagram captions and puns blogpost – I sometimes feel so uninspired if it comes down to captions. My Instagram captions usually consists of a personal story or I write about a blogpost I just uploaded. A quote can be so nice to post sometimes since it’s so easy and fun to read for your followers!

These Paris quotes are also perfect to write down if you’re making a travel photo album. I wrote a blogpost about two ways to create a travel photo album: the online way and the traditional way. It’s amazing to do this and always remember and be able to look back on your trips. This is what I like to do on a rainy Sunday – just grab my big photo album with all my travel photos in it and think of those times.

As usual, I divided this blogpost about Paris quotes in two sections: the actual Paris quotes to use everywhere and anywhere and the Instagram puns. I love a good Instagram pun so I always try to include these too! You can use them anywhere you want so it’s really up to you where you’re going to post them. I sometimes post a full travel quote and I sometimes post an Instagram pun about a specific destination.

And if you want to pick novel ideas, you go to Paris.” – Roman Payne

“The Louvre is the book in which we learn to read. We must not, however, be satisfied with retaining the beautiful formulas of our illustrious predecessors.

Time and reflection, moreover, little by little modify our vision, and at last comprehension comes to us.” – Paul Cezanne

Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” – Tom of Finland

“Paris is the only city where you can step out of a railway station —and see, the Seine with its bridges and bookstalls, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Tuileries Gardens, the Place de la Concorde, the beginning of the Champs Elysees—what other city offers as much as you leave a train?“ – Margaret Anderson

“Just add three letters to Paris, and you have Paradise.” – Jules Renard
