Joe Louis and I were the first modern national sports figures who were black... But neither of us could do national advertising because the South wouldn't buy it. That was the social stigma we lived under.
The American conception of advertising is to arouse desires and stimulate wants, to make people dissatisfied with the old and out-of-date and by constant iteration to send them out to work harder to get the latest model—whether that model be an icebox or a rug or a new home.bruce fairchild barton
Though some still see the Internet, for example, as a democratic structure for international individual expression, it is more realistic to recognize it as only the latest technological vehicle to be turned, sooner or later, to corporate advantage - for advertising, marketing and general corporate aggrandizement.herbert schiller
The moral of all this?is that we have the kind of advertising we deserve.Dorothy L(eigh) Sayers
Manya small thing has beenmade large by theright kind of advertising.
I had never thought of advertising as a life work, though I had on the side, written some very successful copy.bruce fairchild barton
I've had some wonderful ideas for getting the dominating going. I've got some extremely subtle advertising slogans that should get the public behind us. Things like "Vote for EL Wisty and lovely nude ladies will come and dance with you." It's a complete lie, of course, but you can't afford to be too scrupulous if you're going to dominate the world.Peter Cook
The very first law in advertising is to avoid the concrete promise and cultivate the delightfully vague.bill cosby
I think of the company advertising "Thought Processors" or the college pretending that learning BASIC suffices or at least helps, whereas the teaching of BASIC should be rated as a criminal offence: it mutilates the mind beyond recovery.edsger w. dijkstra
There's an attitude or a view that the money parents pay in school fees should go to the core business of teaching and learning, and any money that doesn't go there is somehow less-than-appropriate spending. The same attitude doesn't come into play when you go to the supermarket - you just accept that some money will go to advertising... We just want to keep our name there in people's minds.simon gipson
I'm the only guy who actually invented anything of the judges. They got a couple of advertising hacks, and a venture capitalist.doug hall
It is true that advertising often gives information and is valuable for doing so, but some forms of advertising give precious little information, and even that little is wrong.randal marlin
Human beings today ... are surrounded by huge institutions we can never penetrate: the City [London's Wall Street], the banking system, political and advertising conglomerates, vast entertainment enterprises. They've made themselves user friendly, but they define the tastes to which we conform. They're rather subtle, subservient tyrants, but no less sinister for that.j. g. ballard
Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.mark twain
Fact and fiction carry the same intrinsic weight in the marketplace of ideas. Fortunately, reality has no advertising budget.daniel suarez
Modern publication wishes to minimize discussion. …Phrases ... are carefully chosen not to stimulate reflection, but to evoke stock responses of approbation or disapprobation. Headlines and advertising teem with them, and we seem to approach a point at which failure to make the stock response is regarded as faintly treasonable.richard weaver
By saturating the public domain with false sincerity, advertising makes genuine sincerity more difficult
The concept of man as mass robot was both an expression of and a powerful motive force in industrialized mass society. It was the basis for behavioural engineering in commercial, economic, political and other advertising and propaganda; the expanding economy of the 'affluent society' could not subsist without such manipulation. Only by manipulating humans ever more into Skinnerian rats, robots buying automata, homeostatically adjusted conformers and opportunists (or, bluntly speaking, into morons and zombies) can this great society follow its progress toward ever increasing gross national product.
America is one of few advanced nations that allow direct advertising of prescription drugs.Robert Reich
As the United States Supreme Court declared in the landmark case of Hustler v. Falwell , an advertising parody which portrayed the leader of the MOral Majority as having engaged in a drunken incestuous rendezvous with his other, could not reasonably have been interpreted as stating actual facts about him.
Jimbo Wales founded the Bomis search engine and Web site at the onset of the dot-com boom in 1996. Bomis helped people find 'erotic photography,' and earned money through advertising as well as subscription fees for premium content.
The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.
advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
