40 Whimsical Quotes From Netflix's The School for Good and Evil to Use as Instagram Captions

Last month, Soman Chainani's beloved first novel of The School for Good and Evil finally got the Netflix adaptation it deserved, and there's a good reason it's taking the world by storm.

The film is about two best friends, Agatha and Sophie, who get whisked away to the fairytale Schools for Good and Evil. While Agatha, who's always been accused of being a witch, joins the School for Good, the beautiful and princess-like Sophie is taken into the School for Evil, and taught to be a villain. Is it all some kind of mistake, or are greater powers at play, seeking to change the Schools forever?

It's a thrilling, sweet and funny start to a great series, and we hope adaptations for the book's five sequels aren't far behind. Loved it as much as we did? Keep scrolling for 40 of the best quotes from the movie to use as your next Instagram caption.
