We are so excited that Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender is finally streaming on Netflix, introducing the iconic series to a whole new generation. It’s just as entertaining and powerful as it ever was, and we’re thrilled to see it explode in popularity yet again.

Not only is it beautiful, well-written and funny, but it tells exactly the types of stories we need to hear right now. Its wise characters also happen to be endlessly quotable, and we happen to think a number of its classic quotes double as amazing Instagram captions.

For that shot of you deciding to make the very most of whatever life serves up:

“Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not.”



For once you’ve finally let go of that grudge you’ve been holding:

“It’s easy to do nothing. It’s hard to forgive.”

For the pic of you training to be the best you can possibly be:

“With fierce determination, passion, and hard work, you can accomplish anything. Raw talent is not enough”



For the group shot with the people who support you, no matter what:

“It’s always best to believe in one’s self, but a little help from others can be a great blessing!”



For when you’ve managed to lift yourself out of a tough moment:

“In the darkness, hope is something you give yourself.”



For the image that shows you correcting old mistakes:

“The past can be a great teacher.”



For when you have to eat a slice of humble pie:

“Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source.”



For when a minor setback doesn’t stop you from giving your all to a cause that matters:

“Sometimes it hurts more to hope and it hurts more to care. But you have to promise me that you won’t stop caring.”



For the big group photo with people of all colors and creeds that shows we’re all human:

“We all have the same roots, and we are all branches of the same tree”

For when you believe you’ve found your true calling:

“There are reasons each of us are born. We have to find those reasons.”



For that snuggly pic with the person you love most in the world:

“Love is brightest in the dark.”



For that post-breakup pic when you’re ready to try something new:

“When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change.”



For that shot of you learning from an unexpected source:

“It is important to draw wisdom from different places. If you take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale.”



For showcasing that win you really had to work for:

“I don’t need luck, though. I don’t want it. I’ve always had to struggle and fight, and that’s made me strong. It’s made me who I am.”

For that pic of you being your odd, independent and wonderful self:

“As long as I’m confident with who I am, it doesn’t matter what other people think”



For that pic of you building your own happiness after a difficult time:


“You can’t always see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if you keep moving, you will come to a better place.”



For proclaiming that nothing will stop you:

“You can’t knock me down!”

For the times being charitable makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside:

“Sometimes the best way to solve your own problems is to help someone else.”



For when a tiny zit feels like the end of the world:

“Normal teenagers worry about bad skin. I don’t have that luxury.”



For showing off your action-oriented problem-solving skills:

“Harsh words can’t solve problems; action will”



For when the kindness of your friends brings out the very best in you:

“There is nothing wrong with letting the people who love you help you.”
