47 Friday Quotes and Sayings to Wrap Up Before the Weekend

No more asking you're friends, "Is it Friday yet?" because, Thank Goodness, It's Friday! It's hard to focus when you are excited for the weekend but give your best for the last eight hours at work, filled with meetings and beating deadlines. The following Friday quotes come in handy when you need help to boost your motivation for the last day of the week at the office.

Following Saturday, Friday is America's favorite day of the week, according to a survey by YouGov. We immediately make plans with friends during lunch to hang out, grab a drink, go to a club, and do other fun Friday night activities. While some choose to stay in, relax, and prepare for the weekend ahead.

Whatever you're planning today, kickstart your weekend by reading our Friday quotes below.

Best Friday Inspirational Quotes

Throughout decades of pop culture, TGIF is the most common phrase we associate with Friday. However, it did not start with the food chain of the same name - based on internet claims, it began with a local newspaper in 1941.

Then, in 1965, the TGI Friday's restaurant chain opened in New York, and in 1978 a movie about disco culture had a title of the same name. The presence of this phrase is undeniable in our daily vocabulary, and it makes sense because it perfectly captures what we all feel about Friday.

Other than saying TGIF to express anticipation of the weekend, use the following Friday quotes as well.

Lively Friday Quotes To Get You Excited

It’s the last workday of the week, and it's common to be distracted by weekend expectations, but let's stay focused while working on a Friday afternoon. Suppose you are a manager or a supervisor. In that case, you can still make Friday productive by conducting lighter activities that overall motivate the staff.

Award shows, silly weekly surveys, and tried and tested party games can ease the stress and remove creative blocks for everybody. Creating a relaxed environment welcomes the weekend mood. And it also fosters teamwork and productivity for a better workweek.

Start your work-life balance in the office by sharing these Friday quotes with your workmates.

Quotes About Friday Night Activities And Getting Out

We enjoy our Friday nights in different ways. Sometimes we feel like partying with friends to decompress, while on other Fridays, we like to stay indoors with the family. 

But are we always present? A study collected 250,000 entries of people's feelings at random intervals with the help of a web app. The research concluded that we spend almost half of our waking time thinking about anything other than the present1

They mentioned our wandering minds accounted for about 10.8 percent of our happiness. Contemplating the past and the future is a cognitive feat but comes with an emotional cost.

So stop thinking about work. Instead, stay in the present, practice mindfulness, and be happy while you experience the activities mentioned in the Friday quotes below.
