Are you a fan of quotes but short on time? Us too. When you’re looking for your next Instagram caption, a cool and snappy message to send to a friend or your texting teen, some long quotes just won’t cut it. And much like the one-liner joke, there’s something so refreshing about a really short quote.

When it comes to sentences, size doesn’t matter — keeping a message short can go a long way. Although there are many words you can use to tell someone how you feel, sometimes all you need are three. Being brief isn’t a bad thing because small phrases can still pack a punch. So with that in mind, we’ve rounded up the most memorable three-word quotes with bite-sized nuggets of humor and wisdom.
