Sandra Tsing Loh
Sometimes when I’m on the internet, I’ll get this, like, which of these ad experiences would you prefer? And I’ll have a choice of, like, a car, a pharmaceutical item or, you know, clothing. And I’m thinking, like, I don’t want any of these. Do I have to choose?
Terry Gross

Generally, our approach with products at Google is to first develop the right user base and then to figure out what’s the right experience for the ads.
Susan Wojcicki
I think that selling rights is a bad move commercially, not just morally. It cheapens the songs. When people come to my concerts, they often hold up candles when we do “Let It Be.” I don’t think they’d do that anymore if the song suddenly became part of an Oldsmobile ad.
Paul McCartney
Can you be happy with the movies, and the ads, and the clothes in the stores, and the doctors, and the eyes as you walk down the street all telling you there is something wrong with you? No. You cannot be happy. Because, you poor darling baby, you believe them.
Katherine Dunn
In the book, I write about children in first grade who were taught to read by reading want ads. They learned to write by writing job applications. Imagine what would happen if anyone tried to do that to children in a predominantly white suburban school.
Jonathan Kozol
To make [parents] happy, I went to Fordham University for three weeks, while at the same time running ads in Variety, “magician-actor David Copperfield.”

Paula White
The day Metallica’s over, i’m not going to put an ad looking for another band. I’ll put my drumsticks on the shelf and there’s 14 other things I wanna try. Metallica’s the only band I’ve ever been and it’s the only I ever wanna be in.
Lars Ulrich
Consumerist ads brainwash us into individualist and egotistic self-love.
Fatema Mernissi
Properly practiced creativity can make one ad do the work of ten.
William Bernbach
The program is only the excuse to get you to watch the advertising. Without the ads there would be no programs. Advertising is the true content of television and if it does not remain so, then advertisers will cease to support the medium, and television will cease to exist as the popular entertainment it presently is.
Jerry Mander
Whenever anyone does as this ad does, plays the actual words of Donald Trump on national television, his response is to yell, “Liar.” Their strategy is simply to yell, “Liar, liar, liar.”
Ted Cruz
I was a fan of Andy’s since I was a small kid. I recall seeing an ad of famous people on an airplane together. It was caricature drawing. There was Muhammad Ali, there was Miles Davis, and there was Andy Warhol. I had a fascination with him since I was little.
Jeffrey Deitch
I like to read the ‘Financial Times’ when I’m traveling. ‘Economist.’ ‘Ad Busters.’
Mos Def
A carbonated wine foisted upon Americans (who else would drink it?) by winery ad agencies as a way of getting rid of inferior champagne by mixing it with inferior burgundy.
John Ciardi
Facebook has stitched together your social graph. The idea of an interest graph is to bring together everyone that has shared interests. If I can isolate the people who are into mountain biking in Marin, in one place, the ability to put ads against that is really high.
Bill Gurley
I was the first size 14 model to be featured in an ad in the magazine,I was the first size 14 model on the cover!

Franz Kafka

Acting is acting, whether you do it on TV, film, web, theatre or ads. It depends on the person, time and situation, what the individual wants to choose.
Karan Wahi
Advertising is utterly unprofitable, and I could prove it to you in one week. End an ad with an offer to pay five dollars to anyone who writes you that he read the ad through. The scarcity of replies will amaze you.
Claude C. Hopkins
When you think about Uber and Airbnb and the other companies that are turning things upside down, Uber isn’t big ’cause they ran a lot of ads. They’re big because someone took out their iPhone and said to their friend, watch this, and pressed a button and a car pulled up.
Seth Godin
Market research shows that older women like seeing older women in ads, and that younger women do, too – because they see them and are not frightened of growing older.
Isabella Rossellini
Just because your ad looks good is no insurance that it will get looked at. How many people do you know who are impeccably groomed… but dull?
William Bernbach
In China, going public has a cachet from a branding standpoint. It will improve our image to ad agencies, government regulators.
Victor Koo

Richard Brautigan

Dallas Clayton
Every donation received is a potential negative ad. Vetting money is just as important as raising it.
Dick Morris
In our quest to tweet, like, and trend, we have forgotten that brands can be built through advertising. Ads can generate big ideas that can never be trumped by tactics. That is the magic of an ad, and that is what is missing from many ads today.
Jerry Della Femina
I don’t believe in trashing my opponents. I’ve never run a negative ad in my life. I believe in talking about issues, sometimes fighting for the media to talk about the issues, but that’s what I do, and the people will decide.
Bernie Sanders
The thinner a newspaper or magazine is – due to reduced revenue from advertising dollars – the less editorial content because of the standard ad-to-editorial ratio, and the less money there is to support investigative journalism.
Lynda Resnick
We are all bound thither; we are hastening to the same common goal. Black death calls all things under the sway of its laws.
[Lat., Tendimus huc omnes; metam properamus ad unam. Omnia sub leges mors vocat atra suas.]
I remember back in the early days of Microsoft that from the day that you decided that you were just going to put out an ad to a customer – and all you were usually able to tell them was that a new product was available – it was about nine months before you could actually reach the first customer.
Gabe Newell
Men in no way approach so nearly to the gods as in doing good to men.
[Lat., Homines ad deos nulla re propius accedunt, quam salutem hominibus dando.]
Marcus Tullius Cicero
In AI, Spielberg is bleaching the dirt out of the human mind and leaving behind only the vacant gaze of machine ‘love’. Coca Cola ads do much the same thing – and they don’t take two hours.
Bryan Appleyard
Just as infinite access to free music ultimately leads to no one making a living at music anymore, free journalism just doesn’t pay for itself – particularly not when a search engine is serving all the ads.
Douglas Rushkoff
Metallica’s the only band i’ve ever been in. I’m not sure that when it ends in five, ten years, I’m going to put an ad in the paper saying, ‘stupid drummer looking for stupid people to play music with,’ Metallica is it and I think when that ceases, that’s it.
Lars Ulrich
After Survivor, I was driving across country and moving to San Francisco, going to get a job interning at an ad agency. And then they asked me to read for this movie.
Colleen Haskell
Facebook and Myspace are the U.S. audience, which is tried and true when it comes to being susceptible to ads.
Max Levchin

Michael Moore
By the end of the 1950s, American cars were so reliable that their reliability went without saying even in car ads. Thousands of them bear testimony to this today, still running on the roads of Cuba though fueled with nationalized Venezuelan gasoline and maintained with spit and haywire.
P. J. O’Rourke
Other Republican candidates may retort to personal attacks and negative ads.
George W. Bush
It’s short-sighted to think ads won’t one day end up wherever humans are – even the moon.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Not my political ideas. Conservatism didn’t buy this house. First and foremost I’m a businessman. My first goal is to attract the largest possible audience so I can charge confiscatory ad rates. I happen to have great entertainment skills, but that enables me to sell airtime.
Rush Limbaugh
That’s a big trunk,” James said, as we jammed in the leathery old case that looked so much like the black heart of some leviathan. “It fits a tuba, three suitcases, a dead dog, and a garment bag almost perfectly.” “That’s just what they used to say in the ads,” I said.
Michael Chabon
A man polished to the nail.
[Lat., Ad unguem factus home.]
It’s the ‘National Enquirer’ for the ad people
Joe Sedelmaier
When they [Democrats] running all these ads that are characterizing [Mitt] Romney as a rich, insensitive, out of touch, aloof nerd who loved having his dog on the roof of the station wagon, who didn’t care when the wife of an employee dies with cancer.
Rush Limbaugh
I certainly was performing before my writing was published, because I was performing when I was very young. And the thing is I’m very comfortable on stage, so a large portion of my act did come from ad-libs.
Ricky Jay
Both Obama and Romney are just rolling in PAC money. Plus, they have the super PAC’s behind them. They’ve got multi-millionaires and billionaires just buying 30-second ads. It gives each of them tremendous exposure.
Virgil Goode
It is illegal for foreign entities to buy political ads in the United States. But that didn’t stop the purchase of thousands of political ads on Facebook, paid for – in rubles – by foreigners.
Amy Klobuchar
Examples … which might be multiplied ad libitum, show how difficult it often is for an experimenter to interpret his results without the aid of mathematics.
John William Strutt
People complain when ads aren’t relevant, and they complain when ads are too relevant.
Susan Wojcicki
I never wanted to be the face of the brand. You haven’t seen me in my own ads. You don’t see my logo all over my clothes. From the beginning, I wanted the clothes to stand on their own.
John Varvatos
We mocked that concept [‘movies are better than ever’] by doing a sketch that was about a theater trying to get one customer to come in…and that customer was Jerry Lewis. It generated so much controversy that Dean [Martin] and Jerry [Lewis] had to apologize in a full page ad in Variety.
Norman Lear
I got Robbie’s mobile number and rang him. It went to his voicemail: ‘Hi, it’s Robbie – whazzup!’ Like the Budweiser ad. I never called him back. I thought: ‘I can’t be f****** signing that’.
Roy Keane
President Obama’s version of America is a divided one – pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed! We are not better off than we were 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that.
Mia Love
I meet the designers very often, we discuss the products, they show me their ideas, we discuss the ad campaigns and every new invention that we can find for the future.
Bernard Arnault
A good ad which is not run never produces sales.
Leo Burnett
With this new initiative, Disney is doing what no major media company has ever done before in the United States. And what I hope every company will do going forward when it comes to the ads they show and the food they sell they’re asking themselves one simple question: Is this good for our kids?
Michelle Obama
It would be nice to spend billions on schools and roads, but right now that money is desperately needed for political ads.
Andy Borowitz
Eddie Izzard is doing his show in French… Will he be able to fake ad-lib as well in other languages? He’s been speaking French for a while now, but he’s talking about doing his act in German. Haven’t the German people suffered enough?
Andy Kindler
The number of clicks on display ads is not an accurate predictor of the effectiveness of online display ads.
Gian Fulgoni
You can’t show me an ad on TV with hard bodies and say I have to buy that car. You have to tell me why that car is better and safer than another car.
Doris Roberts
Etymology: from Latin ad-, “to” + visum, past participle of videre, “to see”. Advice is what you get from your parents when you are growing up, and from your children when you are growing old.
Evan Esar
For too long we’ve been told about ‘us’ and ‘them.’ Each and every election we see a new slate of arguments and ads telling us that ‘they’ are the problem, not ‘us.’ But there can be no ‘them’ in America. There’s only us.
William J. Clinton
By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or storefront ads, magazine covers or TV shows, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today’s girls.
Adora Svitak
The Internet is both great and terrible. As a source of information, a tool for delivering music and art, it’s great. But spamming ads and piracy of music is terrible. It’s stealing.
Gary Wright
The funny thing about advertising is that it’s not a zero-sum game… Historically, in the digital ad world, pie has gotten larger and it’s possible for everyone to win, and it’s perfectly possible that will continue to be true for quite some time.
Eric Schmidt
For the most part, cookies aren’t dangerous. They were created so advertisers could get a better idea of who you are and what you’re interested in, so they could send you ads you’re more likely to find relevant.
Daniel Lyons
I don’t like outside group ads. I don’t like attack ads. I particularly don’t like them now that I’m in the process and they are being used against me.
Ron Johnson
[When a John McCain political campaign video that used her image] That wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad, which means I’m running for President. So thanks for the endorsement white-haired dude, and I want America to know I’m like, totally ready to lead.
Paris Hilton
Ads represent the main channel of intellectual and artistic effort in the modern world.
Marshall McLuhan
I started noticing a lot of big companies are bored with ads; they feel sort of lost in the advertising world. They’re not into magazines anymore.
Gavin McInnes
It’s a gold rush ad we’re selling the shovels.
Josh Williams
Google and Facebook, each in their own way, have revolutionized the delivery of advertising based on search and social networking, creating a sort of anti-Spam: targeted, relevant ads that a consumer might actually welcome rather than spurn.
Marcus Buckingham
Here you have a new technology, and if that technology is going to work, you must allow people to provide central indexes of the data. It’s just like a newspaper that publishes classified ads.
David Boies
I’m sure 50 percent of television ads use rhyme
Paul Muldoon
The ad in the paper said ‘Big Sale. Last Week.’ Why advertise? I already missed it. They’re just rubbing it in.
Yakov Smirnoff
I literally coded Facebook in my dorm room and launched it from my dorm room. I rented a server for $85 a month, and I funded it by putting an ad on the side, and we’ve funded ever since by putting ads on the side.
Mark Zuckerberg
What is God looking for in the world? Assistants? No.
The gospel is not a help-wanted ad. It is a help-available ad. God is not looking for people to work for Him but people who let Him work mightily in and through them.
John Piper
Facilis descensus Averno Noctes atque dies patet atri ianua Ditis Sed revocare gradum superasque evadere ad auras Hoc opus labor est

Iskra Lawrence
The reductio ad absurdum is God’s favorite argument.
George Tyrrell
An ad should be an appetizer, not a buffet.
Lee Clow
I don’t make a Bible argument in the ad, nor have I made a bible argument in the public space. My argument is simple, which is, that for several thousand years in Western civilization, marriage has been the union of one man and one woman. Research is overwhelming that children need mothers and fathers.
Gary Bauer
Ants do no bend their ways to empty barns, so no friend will visit the place of departed wealth.
[Lat., Horrea formicae tendunt ad inania nunquam
Nullus ad amissas ibit amicus opes.]
I still get excited performing live. When you see the immediate reaction from a crowd, its like being a theater performer, its something you can’t get from being a writer or being an ad man … its almost ritualistic.
Marilyn Manson
We didn’t realize it at the time, but the release date, the ad campaign and the poster are so important.
David Zucker
Delusions are often functional. A mother’s opinions about her children’s beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth.
Robert A. Heinlein
What the people now respond – and the goal of those ads is to merely get the name of the medication into the minds of the consumers so that they will ask their doctor about it. That’s the whole goal.
Frank Luntz
When I was in middle school, some of my so-called friends found a catalogue ad I did for Superman pajamas. They made as many copies as they could and pasted them up all over school.
Jensen Ackles
[The people who run things] are so successful in the way they do it now. They could buy me off with a couple of vintage prints, they could have you do an ad, or give you a ribbon… In capitalist countries they reward artists because we’re ineffectual.
Danny Lyon
I ‘ad a toy when I was little,’ said Suzy. She frowned for a moment, then added, ‘Can’t remember what it was. It moved and made me laugh.
Garth Nix
Donald Trump threatened to file a defamation suit against me for running a TV ad that consisted only entirely of his own words on national television. Now, that’s really a remarkable theory, that it is defamation to show people what he said on national TV. I think the voters are smarter than that.
Ted Cruz
It has been reported that Rudolph Giuliani has trademarked the name ‘Rudolph Giuliani’ so other candidates can’t use his name in negative campaign ads. … For similar reasons, Hillary Clinton has trademarked the words ‘ballbuster,’ ‘castrater,’ and ‘nutcruncher.’
Conan O’Brien
It’s about who owns the servers. The servers that store your metrics. The servers that shout the ads. The servers that transmit your chat. The servers that geofence your every movement.
Raph Koster
We’re all about trying to play better every night, not just singing hit songs … we ad lib, and every night there’s jamming .. it’s almost like the Grateful Dead meets Buck Owens some nights, because we’ll go off on little adventures and sometimes we do crash the bus!.
Brad Paisley
The American people have a right to know the source of the money that is being spent. They should be told who is behind the millions of dollars in campaign ads, and they should receive this information before they vote.
Hank Johnson
When I was very young and first worked in Hollywood, the films had bred in me one sole ambition: to get away from them; to live inthe great world outside movies; to meet people who created their own situations through living them; who ad-libbed their own dialogue; whose jokes were not the contrivance of some gag writer.
Anita Loos
Even under Apple founder Steve Jobs, the company did emphasize values. Remember the Think Different ad campaign that used pictures of the Dalai Lama, Amelia Earhart, Mahatma Gandhi? But Jobs focused on the integrity of Apple’s products.
Laura Sydell
WE DIE. You will never hear those words spoken in a television ad. Yet this central fact of human existence colors our world and how we perceive ourselves within it.
Christopher Locke
Basically what they’re saying is, if you want to be on TV, if you want to be a credible candidate, you’ve got to buy ads. And if you’re not buying ads, you’re not a credible candidate, we don’t cover you.
Robert Waterman McChesney
As more ad spending shifts online, the ability to have expertise and to innovate quickly will become critical.
Kara Swisher
There’s a growing sense that the online ad industry is out of control from a privacy perspective and that some rules need to be put in place.
Marc Rotenberg
If I can convince people that good people don’t do attack ads, and that we want good people to represent us, then the attack ads work against themselves.
John Hickenlooper
By 1956, London Transport was recruiting in Barbados, even loaning migrants the costs of their passage to Britain. British Rail placed ads in the Barbados Labour Office and the NHS appealed to West Indian women to come to Britain and train to become nurses.
David Olusoga
I’m a chronic ad-libber. So whoever hires me, often to their chagrin, should know that I will be talking a bunch of smack.
Jay Baruchel
Most ads are about the product or the company that makes it…the best ads are about the customer and how the product will change his life.
Roy H. Williams
In the 1940s, cigarettes would be shown in classy situations, endorsed by celebrities – real A-list Hollywood stars in America – the ads would make claims about tobacco quality or manufacturing science and, bizarrely, some brands had what almost amounted to health claims.
Peter York
We’re very much an advertising agency, but it’s not about creating ads as we know it.
David Droga
The world is changing and how we reach people has changed. It’s no longer throwing ads on your network and putting up billboards. It’s now social media and things move virally, and the networks haven’t always caught up to that.
Malik Yoba
I liked writing the negative ads more than – because it’s more minor chords.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
My ambition was always to bag a lead role in a film, and hence, I refrained from doing any ads, TV serials, music videos, as I felt that a fresh face always works much better. It was a gamble, and I took that gamble telling myself that I will give it my all to bag a lead role.
Ranveer Singh
My background is advertising: I moved to New York from London in 1998 to start up the U.S. office of ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty.
Cindy Gallop
Before I really became interested in fashion, all I would look at in a fashion magazine was the ads. It only dawned on me recently that just looking at the ads really doesn’t teach you everything you need to know about the fashion world.
Mark Indelicato
Everybody uses labels: they give you a handle on things – an over-simplified handle, sure, but without labels, without ads, without words, the world would be an indistinguishable mass, a blur. You can hope, maybe, that people ascribe so many labels to you that none wins out
Vito Acconci
I never took that stuff personally when people said I was too young, too inexperienced. I get politics. I get attack ads. But they said ‘mobbed up family.’ That we were criminals. That kills me.
Alexi Giannoulias
The radio ad “Hi, I’m Jeff Healey from the Jeff Healey Band. Don’t drink and drive. I don’t”. Well, I hope you don’t drive sober either Mr. Healey. You’re blind for God’s sake!
George Carlin
A supermodel needed to be able to be on ‘Sports Illustrated,’ to be able to walk runways, to be able to do beauty ads, to be on covers. And the girls now can no longer be on covers and be in the ads because your actresses have taken over all the jobs. I don’t know what happened, but we want our jobs back.
Kim Alexis
You can enjoy the quality of the ad and not let them pressure you to buy what you don’t really need. I have had fun taking back superlatives and just ordinary good words and phrases from ads and trying to restore some of their life to them.
Corita Kent
People ask ‘How does doing a film compare to doing an ad?’ Well, when you’re doing a commercial you don’t have to sell tickets. You have a captured audience. Which is actually completely rare and great; it gives you a lot of freedom. When you make a film, you have to do advertisements for the film.
Mike Mills
Ads sway kids’ preferences. Star athletes spokespeople sway kids’ preference.
Chuck Norris
My dad used to cut out newspaper ads and post them to me in the hope I’d get a proper job.
Jane Fallon
Leave America and you’ll find that the consumers in many other countries enjoy watching advertising. Not because the products are better, but because the ads are produced to be entertaining. Sometimes they are funny. Sometimes they are dramatic. Sometimes they are just beautiful.
Simon Sinek
You may have seen my firm’s ads screaming, ‘I Hate Annuities.’ Folks ask why we run them. Simple: Because I do.
Kenneth Fisher
Leonard Cohen can give you “Leonard Cohen” – the self-deprecating wit, the slow, considered speech, the perfectly-honed anecdote – Tom Waits is far more comfortable giving a journalist “Tom Waits” the character, whose conversation is really a series of strange tales, learned or ad-libbed.
Sylvie Simmons
Many billboards and magazine ads have resorted to showing isolated body parts rather than full-body portraits of models using or wearing products. This style of photography, known in the industry as abstract representation, allows the viewer to see himself in the advertisement, rather than the model.
Douglas Rushkoff
When you act obnoxious towards people, like on a movie set, they say “we’re ready for you” and I say “oh, go to hell, my feet hurt and my head aches.” You want to have a margarita for lunch, and people like these little ADs and production assistants are like, “well, he’s drinking again.”
Bill Murray
But I wanted the karaoke-style lyrics in our music videos for two reasons: first, cause nobody has lyric booklets anymore, and when I was growing up, lyric booklets were like little bibles. I want people to be able to access our lyrics without having to go to some gnarly website with banner ads.
Caroline Polachek
Just saw the phony ad by [Ted] Cruz. Totally false. More dirty tricks. He got caught in so many lies. Is this man crazy?
Donald Trump
Subscriptions is the bulk of our business; ads are nice to have on top of that.
Zanny Minton Beddoes
Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite ’em, And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum, And the great fleas themselves, in turn, have greater fleas to go on, While these again have greater still, and greater still, and so on.
Augustus De Morgan
A lot of people see a Nissan ad and they see a finished product in a record store or on iTunes and that’s the face of the band.
Patrick Carney
Realtime ads are the perfect way for an advertiser to connect with users in a social environment.
Kimbal Musk
You can go out and you can run ads all day long on Donald Trump and what he says about women, and you haven’t even gotten close to separating his supporters from him, ’cause that’s not why they’re there.
Rush Limbaugh
You can do a good ad without good typography, but you can’t do a great ad without good typography.
Herb Lubalin
When I think of invention, I always think of America. You’re always seeing ads: ‘Have you got the next big idea?’ There seems to be that spirit in America of inventions and inventors.
Simon Cowell
You little know what a ticklish thing it is to go to law.
[Lat., Nescis tu quam meticulosa res sit ire ad judicem.]
Too many ads that try not to go over the reader’s head end up beneath his notice.
Leo Burnett
I must admit that the existence of Disneyland (which I know is real) proves that we are not living in Judaea in 50 AD. . . . Saint Paul would never go near Disneyland. Only children, tourists, and visiting Soviet high officials ever go to Disneyland. Saints do not.
Philip K. Dick
You must make the product interesting, not just make the ad different.
Rosser Reeves
Faith, hope and charity – faith, hope and charity – those are the tools God gave me. Ad I keep circling around it.
Glenn Beck
It was voters in the Rust Belt that cared about their roads being rebuilt, their highways, their bridges. They felt like the world was crumbling. So I started making ads that would show the bridge crumbling.
Brad Parscale
With any video you see online, like with YouTube, you gotta watch an ad, and that’s gotta stop. And I think it’ll stop by…the shitty network shows they put out will just have the ads in the shows. The characters will be eating Cheetos or whatever.
Derek Waters
I don’t watch television. And certainly not ads; I loathe advertising.
John Hodgman
News is what people don’t want you to print. Everything thing else is ads.
William Randolph Hearst
What every human being should do is eat a vegetarian diet based on whole foods. Period. That’s it. Animal protein is bad for you. Dairy is bad for you. Forget the ads: Milk and eggs are bad for you.
Roger Ebert
One would think America big enough to set aside wilderness preserves for the many of our citizens who seek to escape the incessant crowd, to search for solace in solitude amidst a sanctuary far removed from the banality of beer ads and cigarette commercials.
Frank Church
Be more ambitious. Don’t bunt. When you get a job to do a story or an ad, try and hit the ball out of the park every time
David Ogilvy
I like our ads. I like beautiful women eating burgers in bikinis. I think it’s very American.
Andrew Puzder
Any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood.
Newt Gingrich
I don’t like ads: I’m too susceptible. I find myself in the supermarket buying Ronseal, and I don’t even have a shed.
Claudia Winkleman
The Romans believed that what no man controls, no man can own. Justinian, writing in the sixth century AD, said that the air, flowing water, the sea and the seashore were common to all.
Charles Clover
Well, it’s possible that the new infusion of ad money against Donald Trump kept his margins in Kentucky and Louisiana down a bit. But we’re also seeing something that we’ve never seen in 100 years, which is we are seeing the crackup of a major American political party.
Mara Liasson
I don’t think I’d have been in such a hurry to reach adulthood if I’d known the whole thing was going to be ad-libbed.
Bill Watterson
If you can’t turn yourself into your customer, you probably shouldn’t be in the ad writing bsuiness at all.
Leo Burnett
I can’t tell you how many home businesses are almost in bankruptcy court over a Yellow Pages ad only to find out that the Yellow Pages ad isn’t where their market will look for them, and it cost more than they thought.
Dave Ramsey
Every reader of your ad is interested, else he would not be a reader. You are dealing with someone willing to listen. Then do your level best. That reader, if you lose him now, May never again be a reader
Claude C. Hopkins
I went to a hotel to become a chef and then tried becoming a flight attendant, but no one took me. I then worked in a travel agency and got into advertising and modelling after someone spotted me. So I started doing ads. I did ‘Charminar’ ad, because of which I got two films.
Jackie Shroff
Recent presidents have gone off on ad hoc adventures. They have set unattainable goal because they have framed the issue incorrectly, as they believed their own rhetoric.
George Friedman
If you want a free email service that doesn’t use your words to target ads to you, you’ll have to figure out how to port years and years of Gmail messages somewhere else, which is about as easy as developing your own free email service.
Al Franken
David Ogilvy made his copywriters come up 100 different headlines for every ad they wrote.
David Ogilvy
My biggest achievement is that I can make a lot of people smile just by my presence, even if it’s a Lux ad.
Shahrukh Khan
Apparently we’re now in a state where most ads are full of people looking at us in a way that would heat us up down to our toes if it happened in real life, and we don’t think anything of it.
Max Barry
…only drugs make you feel as good as people in TV ads appear to be.
Hakim Bey
Everyone is using the Internet for almost everything – trailers, ads, movies, and short films. This is the only thing that will reach everybody in the world.
Ali Fazal
I can’t believe they even bothered filling that faculty position again. They might as well rename the class Defense Against the Dark Arts. I mean, seriously, who would answer an ad for this job?
Rachel Vincent
Ted Cruz has been playing an ad about me that is so ridiculously false, no basis in fact. Take ad down, Ted. Biggest liar in politics.
Donald Trump
I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they’re feeling because that’s how I read the seed catalogs in January.
Barbara Kingsolver
We assumed the customers were smart and that they’ll buy what they like, not what the ads tell them to buy.
Renzo Rosso
The media theme was, “June is when you win the presidency,” because that’s what they thought Hillary [Clinton] was doing. Hillary was running ads condemning [Donald] Trump, characterizing Trump, marginalizing Trump.
Rush Limbaugh
We try hard to provide the best user experience possible, and that means the best ads possible, so we work with the brands to come up with the best images.
Alan Schaaf
Combinatorial analysis, in the trivial sense of manipulating binomial and multinomial coefficients, and formally expanding powers of infinite series by applications ad libitum and ad nauseamque of the multinomial theorem, represented the best that academic mathematics could do in the Germany of the late 18th century.
Richard Askey
The Administration’s policy on women is often hard to see because it is written in the font size of pharmaceutical ads.
Kate Clinton
In our case, we focus on quality, and we have a very simple model. If we show fewer ads that are more targeted, those ads are worth more. So we’re in this strange situation where we show a smaller number of ads and we make more money because we show better ads. And that’s the secret of Google.
Eric Schmidt
Improv is not something I had a lot of experience with, because for a long time, my only experience in front of a camera was all television, which is pretty rigid script-wise, except for the occasional scene where you toss in an ad-lib just to elongate something.
Gary Cole
Just because something’s damaged doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be treated with respect.’ ‘Ad,’ Wallace said, ‘it’s a coffee table, not an orphan.
Sarah Dessen
There is a lot of discrimination between artistes from Kerala and from other states. Artistes from other states are paid more here. Once I told the ad guy that you won’t be able to afford me next time. After that, I have neither done any ads nor has anyone approached me.
Tovino Thomas
But I think it’s also hard to get into soccer here. I think purely on a time level on television as well because of the ad breaks. It’s something to do with that as well. You can’t show a complete soccer match here. Which I kind of find a bit of an odd thing.
Parminder Nagra
When you use Facebook, you’re always logged in, and your identity and relationships – to others, to content, to apps and services – are assets Facebook can use to customize your experience (oh, and your ads).
John Battelle
There’s a lot of opportunity for game developers to show value to people, things they want to spend money on. I think offers are just another kind of ads.
Mark Pincus
Advertising isn’t just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought. At every company that sells ads, a significant portion of their engineering team spends their day tuning data mining, writing better code to collect all your personal data.
Jan Koum
I had a job on a newspaper in Wisconsin, and I started off as most reporters did back then: writing obits and free ad giveaways.
Scott Glenn
The marriage rate has hit an all-time low, with 1 in 5 adults over 25 having never been married. In fact, an ad firm has come up with slogans to get people on board. One slogan is: ‘Marriage, satisfaction guaranteed or your money back – half of it, anyway.’
Jimmy Little
Famous Writer needs woman to organize his life and spend his money. Loves to turn off Sunday football and go to the Botanical Gardens with that special someone. Will obtain plastic surgery if necessary.
Joe Bob Briggs
…associational ad hominem attacks remain the left’s favorite rhetorical strategy for undermining opponents.
Jonah Goldberg
Ads are cool.
Claudia Winkleman
You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face. Gatorade ad The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.
Juma Ikangaa
This is a choice, ladies and gentleman, between Texas and Washington. Most of Ted Cruz’s money comes from Washington, from outside the state of Texas, and they’ve run millions and millions of untrue ads against me.
David Dewhurst
That which leads us to the performance of duty by offering pleasure as its reward, is not virtue, but a deceptive copy and imitation of virtue.
[Lat., Nam quae voluptate, quasi mercede aliqua, ad officium impellitur, ea non est virtus sed fallax imitatio simulatioque virtutis.]
Marcus Tullius Cicero
While younger women are told to be thinner and prettier, ads for older women emphasize looking younger and wrinkle free – tapping into the insecurities that many of us have about getting older.
Mel Robbins
Both the Obama and Romney campaigns said they pulled all their political ads today in observance of the September 11th anniversary. But politics wasn’t very far offstage. The Obama campaign sees foreign policy as an advantage this year.
Mara Liasson
I always believe that if you’re looking at a magazine and I’m one of 40 ads, I – in effect – get one-fortieth of your attention. But if, when you close that magazine, you’re still thinking about my ad, I’ve got a lot more than one-fortieth of your attention.
Kenneth Cole
There are 365 days in the year, and as a working actor, you might only work 17 of them. You might only need to do two ads and you can afford to live for the year, but it doesn’t make for a very satisfactory or fulfilling life. The point isn’t to not work – it’s to work.
Sarah Snook
We want consumers to say, ‘That’s a hell of a product’ instead of, ‘That’s a hell of an ad.’
Leo Burnett
If you take a look at the way the premium content is monetized, there’s a lot of different models out there. Sometimes you pay for an individual episode, for example on iTunes. Other times you pay for a subscription. And other times it’s free ad-supported.
Jason Kilar
It’s not rocket science: The best ads tell great stories. They look and feel like the content you’re already consuming. They invite you in. They make you laugh. They teach you something. They also sell.
David Droga
I think our slow, humble beginnings in surf shops, ski shops, bike shops, and motorcycle shops have been extremely important for our success. GoPro is all about celebrating an active lifestyle and sharing that with other people. It’s authentic. It’s not a brand that we went out and bought a bunch of ads for to create.
Nick Woodman
I had this crazy job, though, when I first got to Los Angeles… I answered this ad in the back of the newspaper to be a telephone psychic, and I did that for two days.
Jenna Fischer
If you look at the heritage of the best advertising, you can make stuff that is great for both readers and advertisers. I don’t think Don Draper would have loved banner ads.
Jonah Peretti
There are some people who only know me for cornflakes ads, and that’s fine. I have a charmed life.
Rob Brydon
Any business that is trying to sell something should be willing to spend a couple dollars for a stock photo to not have ads in it and not distract the user from using the product they’re trying to sell.
Jon Oringer
As a former lifelong Republican, it pains me to tell you that today’s Republicans – and their standard-bearers, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan – just aren’t up to the task. They’re beholden to ‘my way or the highway’ bullies, indebted to billionaires who bankroll ads and allergic to the very idea of compromise.
Charlie Crist
Apart from films I’ve been shooting a lot of ads and signing on with a lot of brands as their primary endorser.
Amyra Dastur
Ads are the cave art of the twentieth century.
Marshall McLuhan
“Stuffed and Unstrung” started as a workshop, actually, classes within our company. We found that our puppeteers were not ad libbing as well as traditionally, Jim Henson Company puppeteers have. We’re sort of famous for going off script a little bit and ad libbing.
Brian Henson
Every three weeks before an election the TV ads expressing great concern about our trade policy and the loss of jobs to China and other low-wage countries. And then it’s forgotten about the day after the election.
Bernie Sanders
I’m the worst ad anyone could possibly be for abstaining from anything.
Matt Roper
But it was very hard for people to separate me out from Hillary Clinton. All their ads were Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, and me. They said I was more liberal than these guys, and that if I went to Washington I’d be supporting their agenda. I found that extremely difficult to overcome.
Brad Carson
If you have all the research, all the ground rules, all the directives, all the data – it doesn’t mean the ad is written. Then you’ve got to close the door and write something – that is the moment of truth which we all try to postpone as long as possible.
David Ogilvy
With the advent of wearable technology, companies will soon be able to better provide ads to customers based on their real-time activity.
Robert Scoble
If you’d put it in a Powerpoint deck don’t put it in your ad
Lee Clow
Chances are that neither the client nor the agency will ever know very much about what role the ad has played in sales or profits of the client, either short-term or long-term.
Michael Schudson
The cost of campaigning has skyrocketed in recent years because of the falloff in TV viewership. With only one-third as many people watching TV as did 20 years ago, politicians have responded by buying three times as many ads, driving the cost of campaigning to levels which only favored candidates can afford.
Dick Morris
I love improv-ing, you know, from very early on when I started acting the school that I went to and everything was very big on ad-libbing and improv-ing and messing things up, so I feel very comfortable doing stuff like that.
Jennifer Lopez
When you’re reading a newspaper and you’re seeing ads on the page, it’s not kind of invasive. Like, it’s on the page next to the article. You can look at it or not. You can turn the page when you’re ready. On the internet, the ads – many of the ads – just are so controlling. They insist that you see them.
Terry Gross
In New York there are between four and six big designers, and the shows last one week. There is something wrong here. It’s our fault. We can’t stand up for it. They take our ads, don’t they? Why don’t they want to stay longer in Milan? Why do we have to comply? We have the most beautiful brands, they are Italians.
Franca Sozzani
The Democrats’ ads convince me that Governor Romney can’t sing, but his record convinces me he knows how to lead, and I think you know which skill we need more.
Artur Davis
On our way home we were waiting for the bus when a very fat, pompous-looking woman reeled out of a pub shouting, “Melancholia? Ad nauseam.”
Joe Orton
The oppressed always learned from and copied the oppressor. When the tables were turned, the stage was set for another round of revenge and violence — roles reversed. And reversed and reversed ad nauseam.
Frank Herbert
Millennials don’t want to be bombarded by ads. But what is so interesting to me, though, is how willingly they accept native content. Or native advertising – it’s not even native content.
Debbie Millman
As long as we, in the United States, continue to insist that our politicians have to spend all of their time raising millions of dollars for television ads, it will be corrupt. If we leave it up to the politicians to clean up lobbying and finance reform, nothing is going to change.
Kevin Spacey
It’s the relationships between people that are more important than the sort of far away fantasies of what the good life is, the world of supermodels and Bud ads.
Mira Sorvino
It’s cheaper to buy and use and place ads on Facebook than it is to buy print and radio.
Michael Rapino
I won’t sell my songs for no TV Ad.
Adam Yauch
I gotta tell, that’s one of the things in Hollywood that has not been a barrier. I’ve gotten lots of offers, and I did try my hand at it, I directed two commercials. I won best commercial of ad week [laughs] on my first try.
John Leguizamo
The line was originally, ‘Captain Phillips, get a load of me: fancy-free on the seven seas,’ but I ad-libbed.
Barkhad Abdi
I want to make sure (a user) can’t get through … an online experience without hitting a Microsoft ad.
Steve Ballmer
We tend to think of politics as bad, full of dirty tricks, negative ads, big campaigns, but I am here to explore the original meaning of politics, which is positive and has to do with balancing competing interests and looking for solutions.
Eric Liu
Cable boxes are, almost without exception, awful. They’re under-powered computers running very badly designed software. Their channel guides are slow, poorly laid out, and usually riddled with ads.
Alex Pareene
I had a bad stutter when I was really young. I couldn’t get a sentence out. Like, ‘D-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-ad.’ And that turned into a mumble.
Channing Tatum
I starred in Dr. Pepper commercials and Buick ads.
Joe Piscopo
We have to move away from the entirely ad-supported business because the needs of it means that it has to keep driving into privacy, and that’s not good for anyone because we all need to have something about us that is secret from some people.
Andrew Keen
The English language is rather like a monster accordion, stretchable at the whim of the editor, compressible ad lib.
Robert Burchfield
One of the things that was probably to Dad’s discredit was that he was never a fund-raiser. But he didn’t live in an era of TV ads.
Bob Latta
He who overlooks a healthy spot for the site of his house is mad and ought to be handed over to the care of his relations and friends.
Marcus Terentius Varro
The real fact of the matter is that nobody reads ads. People read what interests them, and sometimes it’s an ad.
Howard Gossage
I kind of got popular as a spoken word artist, and I ended up doing some ads and audio stuff for Nike and Sprite.
Dante Basco
Back when I was a kid, I used to tear pages out of magazines and stick them on my bedroom wall – I had the Eternity ads on my wall and the CK One ads. My whole childhood, those were on my wall, and cut to 20 years later, being asked to be the face of one of Calvin Klein’s new fragrances is kind of surreal.
Charlie Hunnam
Exxon, one of the companies that has spent tens of millions of dollars denying climate change, denying any responsibility to deal with, taking government subsidies on a massive scale, now their ads are all about, ‘Oh, we want a clean future. We’re looking at clean energy and all that stuff.’
David Suzuki
Being the one person out there committed to not running negative ads – voters respond to that.
John Hickenlooper
I’ll just say this: The last problem Paris Hilton has is being in a John McCain ad.
Rush Limbaugh
I remember really loving the CoverGirl ads when I was younger – there was something very cool about how they always put the girls in white. It looked so clean.
Christie Brinkley
Articles themselves are condensed to narrow columns of text across 5, 6, 7 pages, and ads that are really distracting for the reader, so it’s not a pleasant experience to ‘curl up’ with a good website.
Mike McCue
A good ad should be like a good sermon: It must not only comfort the afflicted, it also must afflict the comfortable.
Bernice Fitz-Gibbon
I understand that Donald’s [Trump] been strongly supported by the NRA. The gun lobby’s on his side. They’re running millions of dollars of ads against me.
Hillary Clinton
The thing is, I was on YouTube like the golden era, I think. Before ads came in, it was really cool back then.
Bo Burnham
I think daily deals are a good idea. Any ad people view as content is a good ad, and that’s true for daily-deal ads too.
Matt Cohler
For girls it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight actually. Not with like everybody, I don’t put out like a Craigslist ad or anything, but if I got a steady I’m going to be like ‘yo, fight time’s coming up.
Ronda Rousey
I regard a great ad as the most beautiful thing in the world.
Leo Burnett
Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown, ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him by the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned: —-Introibo ad altare Dei.
James Joyce
People don’t understand the logistics of advertising. To have the ads purchased and run, you need to have a series of products that work together.
Susan Wojcicki
Contrology is not a fatiguing system of dull, boring, abhorred exercises repeated daily “ad-nauseam.” Neither does it demand you joining a gymnasium nor the purchasing of expensive apparatus. You may derive all the benefits of Contrology in your own home.
Joseph Pilates
You have to grab moments when they happen. I like to improvise and ad lib.
Denzel Washington
Every time a candidate came up from the base, that is with popular support, the Republican establishment went into high gear to destroy them with massive propaganda attack ads and so on. It was one after another, each one crazier than the last.
Noam Chomsky
If you are looking for a kindly, well-to-do older gentleman who is no longer interested in sex, take out an ad in The Wall Street Journal.
Abigail Van Buren
Google started as a free search engine. It’s still free, but now it’s making a lot of money on ads, right? A lot of money.
Terry Gross
The once inviolate frame within which programs or commercials were displayed on television – always separately – has been violated to a pulp. Program content is seen increasingly as a mere backdrop on which ads are posted like billboards on a fence.
Tom Shales
When I was younger and bands were formed that way, out of friendships rather than anything else. It wasn’t like we put up want ads.
David Pajo
Everywhere I look, there are ads marking Mother’s Day. Mostly they conform to stereotype: flowers, jewelry, perfume. Not a lot of books. Not many computers. Few tools. Little that’s useful.
Margaret Heffernan
I was a dog groomer. I delivered radiators; I was a photography producer. I typed classified ads for many years. It was my longest term job – years of typing classified ads while I was in bands.
Janet Weiss
I’m not even really a joke-teller. I can do ad-lib and banter, but I don’t do jokes.
Bruce Forsyth
Cultural expectations shade and color the images that parents-to-be form. The baby product ads, showing a woman serenely holding her child, looking blissfully and mysteriously contented, or the television parents, wisely and humorously solving problems, influence parents-to-be.
Ellen Galinsky
If you think about how healthcare is delivered, it’s on an ad hoc basis. Someone comes into a hospital, someone comes into a pharmacy, someone comes into a doctor. But beyond those touchpoints, the patients are on their own. There’s no real continuity of care.
Chris Viehbacher
I was still in school when I heard about this audition for this fairness cream ad. I got selected and subsequently, did a lot of ads and I got noticed by Ramesh Taurani and Ken Ghosh and ‘Ishq Vishk’ happened.
Amrita Rao
Sooner or later, people are going to figure out if all you run is negative attack ads you don’t have much of a vision for the future or you’re not ready to articulate it.
John McCain
Ads need to be little pieces of entertainment.
William Shatner
I love fashion. What I love is the ability to express yourself, to be able to make a product and shoot an ad campaign that tosses you out into the world and lets you have a voice in contemporary culture, iconography. I felt a little bit neutered not having that voice.
Tom Ford
The infamous political ads like Carly Fiorina’s ‘Demon Sheep’ and Christine O’Donnell’s ‘I Am Not a Witch’ are so confusing, it’s almost like they were paid for by Democrats.
Meghan McCain
If people really don’t want ads, they can go find their information however it is they want. It’s a free world on that matter.
Carol Bartz
In a way, you might say that David Duke is the son of Willie Horton. Duke is more overt, of course, but he’s really just pushing the same buttons and sending the same coded messages that the Horton ads did so effectively for the Bush campaign last year.
Judd Rose
It would be nice if Patrick Murphy was half as upset about Democrats removing God and Jerusalem from their platform, or booing when they were added back in, as he is pretending to be about our new tv ad which simply points out what happened.
Allen West
Sometimes I try to improve the language, the lines, or the delivery, but I don’t ad-lib because I think that makes it really hard for everybody else involved.
Harrison Ford
I ordered a Kindle 2 from Amazon. How could I not? There were banner ads for it all over the Web. Whenever I went to the Amazon Web site, I was urged to buy one.
Nicholson Baker
How do you stand out as a fashion ad campaign? By using people off the street it does generate buzz.
Alber Elbaz
I have a theory that the best ads come from personal experience. Some of the good ones I have done have really come out of the real experience of my life, and somehow this has come over as true and valid and persuasive.
David Ogilvy
If I hit you and you hit me and I hit you back and you hit me back and go on, you see, that goes on ad infinitum. It just never ends. Somewhere somebody must have a little sense, and that’s the strong person.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I like to read the classified ads every morning. Just the cars for sale. Love to look at cars for sale, Don’t buy them, of course. Just look. But I don’t like to talk to people.
Ken Berry
If you’re trying to get something done, there will always be people who don’t want to see you get something done, or who have a stake in the status quo. And if they approach that through ad hominem criticism of you, you’ve got to have enough confidence and thickness of skin to be able to endure.
Susan Rice
People hate negative tactics, but the fact is, as the 3 a.m. ad demonstrates, they can be very effective.
Susan Estrich
In the year and a half I was on SNL, I never saw anybody ad lib anything. For a very good reason – the director cut according to the script. So, if you ad libbed, you’d be off mike and off camera.
Harry Shearer
I think what people are really crying out for is simple information they can trust when they’re bombarded by attack ads, fundraising pitchers and all sort of comment and opinion all over the place increasingly.
Steve Hilton
I never liked filming the ads, but they were so well received.
Frank Perdue
Norman Rockwell, the Brueghel of the 20th century bourgeoisie, the Holbein of Jell-O ads and magazine covers; by common assent, the most American artist of all.
Jerry Adler
I’ve done a number of Super Bowl ads. And that is the best advertising of the year. That is when people realize they’re going to be compared directly against other ads.
Jerry Seinfeld
Hey, what if those crop circles are just ads for Target?
Dennis Miller
The culture isn’t set up to embrace what we think and feel. Any doubt about that, just watch the ads on TV. They tell you where the dominant culture’s values are – and they’re not vegan!
Tom Regan
I have been directing ads and videos for quite some time. And I wanted to direct films.
Divya Khosla Kumar
A lot of consumers actively enjoy advertising, especially fashion print ads and clever TV commercials. The nostalgic cable channel TVLand features not only vintage shows but also vintage commercials.
Virginia Postrel
In market research I did at Microsoft Corp. in the early 1990s, I estimated that the ‘Wall Street Journal’ took in about 75 cents per copy from subscribers, $1.25 at the newsstand and a whopping $5 per copy from ads. The ad revenue let them run a far bigger newsroom than subscribers were paying for.
Nathan Myhrvold
By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or storefronts ads, magazine covers or TV show, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today’s girls.
Adora Svitak
My father was in the ad business, and he wanted to be a painter.
Bruce Campbell
They know they got the TV ad, they know they got the name recognition, they know that they can do a tie in with McDonald’s or some fast food outlet and the money is just gonna flow in.
Gene Siskel
Television doesn’t want to admit it has those dreadful roach ads on anyway.
Michael O’Donoghue
…the crimes of violence committed for selfish, personal motives are historically insignificant compared to those committed ad majorem gloriam Dei, out of a self-sacrificing devotion to the flag, a leader, a religeous faith or political conviction.
Arthur Koestler
Client companies and advertising agencies are old-world-order places. The systems and processes and structures come from a time when you shot the TV commercial, then you did the print ads, then you did everything else – including the website. Everything has changed, but the systems haven’t.
Cindy Gallop
It’s a wonderful thing to see a segment of our population that is open and eager to learn more about Chinese culture. It has filtered into the mainstream. You see credit-card ads on TV with white couples and Chinese babies.
Iris Chang
After months of negotiations, Iran has finally agreed to reduce its nuclear weapons program. Which was great until Putin showed up and said, ‘Hi, I’m here about Craigslist ad for nukes.’
Jimmy Fallon
Movies you pay for – well, sometimes they throw some ads at the beginning now – but generally you pay for ads. And that business model – actually, much more ancient, paying for stuff – is much more straightforward in terms of the incentives of the people who are then giving you the stuff.
Tim Wu
I have learned that it is far easier to write a speech about good advertising than it is to write a good ad.
Leo Burnett
I’m a big Sarah Michelle Gellar [Buffy the Vampire Slayer] fan. Huge. I love her. She’s gorgeous. I see her Maybelline ads, and I’m like, ‘How can she be that pretty?’
Kirsten Storms
Republicans are already trying to paint Hillary Clinton as too old to be president. In fact, a new ad claims she’s so old that she could be a Republican.
Conan O’Brien
I came in as an engineer and worked on artificial intelligence at Google. I worked on related sites and matching advertising to queries with some of our earliest ads.
Marissa Mayer
Reductio ad absurdum, which Euclid loved so much, is one of a mathematician’s finest weapons. It is a far finer gambit than any chess play: a chess player may offer the sacrifice of a pawn or even a piece, but a mathematician offers the game.
G. H. Hardy
The movie Fifty Shades of Grey is considerably better written than the book. It is also sort of classy-looking, in a generic, TV-ad-for-bath-oil way.
Lisa Schwarzbaum
In an interview with a journalist, you look petty taking the pot shot but in a slick ad you can really do damage – including unfair damage – from afar. It is not that much different than waging a war by a drone than by hand-to-hand combat.
Greta Van Susteren
In general, I think man-on-the- street ads and endorsement spots are having less and less effect on people. The electorate’s getting very sophisticated, and they want to make their own judgments.
Roger Ailes
It’s really frightening, American food on the whole. That’s what always strikes me, coming from Europe: There’s just so much of it! Then you plop down in front of the TV and watch ads for Weight Watchers. ‘Lose weight now!’ Well, eat less!
Hugh Grant
The obvious reductio ad absurdum is Holocaust deniers: Should their perspective be provided, for “balance,” any time someone writes about the Holocaust?
Chris Mooney
A lot of people recognize me from the MyPillow ads, and they often stop and ask for pictures. It’s a blessing.
Mike Lindell
IQ is a commodity, data is a commodity. I’m far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read ‘Tech Crunch,’ ‘Ad Age.’ I would rather be living in the trenches. I would rather be going to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to watch people shop with their smartphones.
Gary Vaynerchuk
Anything that causes you to doubt, to raise either objections or just concerns about it – and they always put the information right at the bottom of the screen so you can’t really read it – every time you see a company do that, the ad becomes less effective. The communication becomes less effective.
Frank Luntz
Most short stories have but one plot. The very best, however, have what I call a plot-and-a-half – that is, a main plot and a small subplot that feeds in a twist or an unexpected piece of business that ads crunch and flavor to the story as a whole.
Elizabeth Sims
I’ve been lucky – all the ads I’ve got, I’ve got to be myself. I haven’t had to act too much or tried too hard to be someone I’m not. I think that’s why people sort of like them. Even the Fastrack ads I did with Genelia.
Virat Kohli
No one`s dropped a cent – there`s no negative ads up against Donald Trump in Iowa which is crazy to think about.
Chris Hayes
I did beef ads for about eight years because I love the people in that industry, and there are a lot of people who make their living in the beef world. Ranchers, primarily.
Sam Elliott
We had all week to rehearse. An audience would come in at the end of the week and we’d our little show. Most of the ad- libbing happened during the week on the show.
Dick Van Dyke
For me, being on set is no different than being at a dinner table or riding the subway next to someone; inevitably their life story is always more compelling than most ads in magazines and most commercials and reality TV and all the stuff we’re sold and told is valuable.
Victoria Mahoney
In the media, traditional media like print, we had boundaries. You know, we had spaces that ads didn’t leave. They stayed where they were on the page. They didn’t float around over the text. And we’re kind of lost on the internet. We don’t have any barriers. We have a demand for growth that is insistent.
Tim Wu
It cracks me up to see these ads for TV – for Depends or for glue for your dentures. The people in them look 55 with a hint of gray. Where are the people who are falling apart? We don’t see that.
Roz Chast
When your reasons for believing something are justified ad hoc, you are left susceptible to further discoveries undermining the rationale for that belief.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
As a final example, let’s remember Jeremy Glick, whose father died in the World Trade Center. After his name appeared in an ad opposing war in Iraq, Mr. Glick was invited on The Factor .. I’m not going to dress you down anymore.
Bill O’Reilly
America Online customers are upset because the company has decided to allow advertising in its chat rooms. I can see why: you got computer sex, you can download pornography, people are making dates with 10 year-olds. Hey, what’s this? A Pepsi ad? They’re ruining the integrity of the Internet!
Jay Leno
The cave art of Madison Avenue has been by far the most innovative and educative art form of the twentieth century.
Marshall McLuhan
When we launched The Deck, I hoped other networks would take inspiration from it and figure out how to increase engagement while minimizing clutter. I even tried to sell my studio’s media clients on the notion of fewer, better-priced, better-targeted ads.
Jeffrey Zeldman
I actually wanted to be a fashion designer. I did a lot with the sewing machine at home – – for Barbie or for carnival or just for fun. Then I saw this ad in the newspaper. And as young girls sometimes do some stupid things, I filled in the coupon and sent in my photos.
Heidi Klum
When you’re feeling overwhelmed in business, one smart idea can beat the biggest Super Bowl ad.
Courtney Love
Why should I have to say bye to one thing to do another? I can do lots of things at one time, and as much as I love to do films, I’d love to do ads as well!
Tena Desae
One of the earliest requested features was to do premium filters where a brand could sponsor a filter. It’s just not in our wheelhouse. It doesn’t feel ‘Instagram’-my in the way that the high-quality brand ads do.
Kevin Systrom
Ad astra per aspera. Translated: “to the stars through difficulties”.
John James Ingalls
I usually turn over when ads appear on television. But – very rarely – I am gripped by a particularly beautiful one, and wonder if art historians of the future will point to these televisual delights as our best art.
Alice Roberts
Users are trying to discover apps; we are trying to improve the app discovery process, and developers are trying to reach users. If you step back, it’s a problem we solved with search and ads in search.
Sundar Pichai
Lasting solutions are always difficult to come to. But they will have to persevere. I’ve been repeating ad nauseam that we in Burma we are weak with regard to the culture of negotiated compromises, that we have to develop the ability to achieve such compromises.
Aung San Suu Kyi
I’ve done many ads because that’s my new career. It’s an inspiring extension for my mind.
Karl Lagerfeld
Seventy years of ad-lib material, and I am speechless.
Bob Hope
Traditional ad agencies have so much to unlearn.
Edward Boches
If we are negative by nature, we Americans are more human than most. The Founding Fathers loved going negative. Heck, the Declaration of Independence is one long negative ad.
Paul Begala
Instead of just purchasing an ad campaign, target test and measure. Give an ad a small try. If the response is enough to pay for the ad, make it larger. With a franchise, ask the most successful franchisees what they did. Ask the bottom five guys what they did and avoid it.
Dave Ramsey
In fact, is beginning to use a lot of the language and phraseology that we have used. In fact, I think I saw Hillary Clinton TV ad, and I thought it was me.
Hillary Clinton
I loved the fact that I was suddenly no longer dependent on whether a store took out an ad in the right place, or on the word on the street.
Neil Gaiman
I did Playboy. There was an ad in the paper for playmates. Playboy called me and flew me to Los Angeles, and I was on the March cover of 1992.
Anna Nicole Smith
You can find old Jewish newspapers from Detroit that have my promotional ad in them. It was a totally insane time in my life. Paul Rudd was also a bar mitzvah emcee, you know? It was like being a local rock star in Detroit.
James Wolk
I went to Tokyo three years ago. It was a job, though. I did an ad campaign for IBM, so they flew me out there to take pictures of me. It was IBM Global. It went to Australia, France, London, all over the world. But I think the ad campaign was a failure, because of me.
Bobby Lee
I’m not a big fan of the high-altitude approach of mega TV ads.
Foster Friess
In the old days, that was my ad-lib for hecklers in the joints I worked. It stuck with me. I hardly say it now, say, to fans, even though people do send me hockey pucks.
Don Rickles
I also do not like the idea of soft money, these issue ads – people don’t know where the money is coming from, millions and millions of dollars outside of the control of a candidate – there’s no accountability.
Scott McCallum
Advertisers don’t want to put their ads next to the investigative story; it’s extremely difficult to do that. And very few people today actually read those serious news stories on the Web now.
Pierre Omidyar
Infiniti ads are part of an exciting new trend called “Advertising Whose Sole Purpose Is to Irritate You.”
Dave Barry
It is harder to lie in an interview. A good interview – and it can be polite – is not a one way street like a candidate controlled ad. An interview is not programmed by the candidate and so the candidate can’t be exactly sure what will be asked.
Greta Van Susteren
You should never write your own resume, personal ad, or obituary.В  In all three cases it is better to show your humility by letting someone else lie for you.
David Hayden
As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads, which I am very proud of.
Joanna Krupa
I did Hilary Duff’s ‘With Love’ music video-slash-fragrance ad.
Kellan Lutz
As for editorial content, that’s the stuff you separate the ads with.
Roy Thomson, 1st Baron Thomson of Fleet
Paris Hilton has launched a new champagne in a can called Rich Prosecco. For the ad campaign Paris posed wearing nothing but gold paint. That’s a unique way to cover up herpes.
Chelsea Handler
They’ve gone to great length to disguise the fact that I’m not in the band, even sending out a photo to promoters with my picture in it which then winds up in some of the ads on the flyers.
Jello Biafra
There is no evidence that super PACs have led to a greater percentage of negative ads.
Bradley A. Smith
Now I can broadcast to an audience of several million people on the ‘Today’ programme. I can talk about the day’s news. But on radio, believe it or not, we have notes and scripts. And while we might ad lib the odd wryly amusing asides, they come at the frequency of a suburban bus. About one every 90 minutes.
Evan Davis
evolution is a tinkerer, an ad-hocker, and a jury-rigger. It works with what it has on hand, not with what it has in mind. Some of its inventions prove elegant, while in others you can see the seams and dried glue.
Natalie Angier
Every ad for every film is exactly the same.
Robert Altman
My first acting job happened by accident when I was really young. I was in fifth grade and my teacher saw an ad in the paper and took me to the audition after school and I got the part.
Ajay Naidu
Natural politicians are skilled actors, recreating reality, adjusting and ad-libbing, synthesizing the scenes, saying the same thing over and over again and making it seem that theyare saying it for the first time.
David Maraniss
If anyone doubts the influence of drug company ads on patients and physicians – consider all those wasted billions of dollars for a pill that sells for more than six times as much as another drug that does the same thing, made by the same company.
Robert Bazell
Give the public the ‘image’ of what it thinks it ought to be, or what television commercials or glossy magazine ads have convinced us we ought to be, and we will buy more of the product, become closer to the image, and further from reality.
Madeleine L’Engle
Yelp is – I mean, Yelp’s not even good for looking up the restaurant’s phone number because, you know, on the site, they just want you to read their reviews and look at their ads. They don’t even actually want to give you the information about the restaurant or the menu.
Andrew Zimmern
When you run ads saying you are going to save social security, my friend, that’s all hat and no cattle.
John McCain
Although contemporary advertising is relatively young, it already has a considerable tradition. Each new ad is encountered against a background of thousands of earlier ads.
Guy Cook
When you only have a million dollar annual budget and a Super Bowl ad costs $4 million, you have to do something very creative to get onto the Super Bowl.
Allen St. Pierre
Thank heaven Election Day is over. No more campaign ads, no more mud-slinging, no more candidates pretending they’re straight. It’s over!
Craig Ferguson
I quit the tax job then and decided that I was going to play in a band. I answered ads in the Village Voice and went through two days of auditioning for bands.
Robert Quine
I think that genius comes not just from having great mental processing power. It comes from being able to, as Steve Jobs’ ad said, think different.
Walter Isaacson
What i’m trying to get at is that to me nothing felt glamorous or exciting or sexually liberating about it. I also think the amount of money you can make escorting is exaggerated (it wasn’t uncommon for me to see ads for escorts for 40-60$/hr where I live.)
Marie Calloway
Writing good ads is easy when you have something to say.
Roy H. Williams
I struggle as a writer, and I’m convinced that if I was at school now, I’d be termed as having ADS. Two minutes and I’m drifting.
Johnny Vegas
I suppose Spotify is a good thing. The ads are quite annoying, but a lot of people seem to like it and use it. I don’t myself, but it seems like a good idea, and the labels are getting a huge amount of money off it, but the artists aren’t, so that must be good for them… but not us.
Calvin Harris
That’s the kind of ad I like, facts, facts, facts.
Samuel Goldwyn
Why one Ad is worth more to a paper than 40 Editorials.
Will Rogers
If you look at an old piece of sheet music, there’s all kinds of text on it, there are ads, there are proclamations of the greatest songs’ success, there’s artwork. So there is a tactile, physical experience of learning the song and the way it’s notated.
The first ads for medical marijuana have started airing on television in California. The ads are quite expensive. It costs a lot of money to buy 30 seconds during ‘Spongebob Squarepants.’
Craig Ferguson
Google is a business that gets paid when users want to see – want to click on – the ad. If we show ads that no one wants to see, we don’t generate revenue.
Susan Wojcicki
It is hard to get good actors who also do television, ads and films. Theatre requires six weeks of rehearsal for a play.
Lillete Dubey
If you want a free email service that doesn’t use your words to target ads to you, you’ll have to figure out how to port years and years of Gmail messages somewhere else, which is about as easy as developing your own free email service.
Al Franken
when I moved to Canada in ’93, I started reading fashion magazines, and that’s where I spotted the M.A.C ad that RuPaul were in. That’s sort of how I first “met” you – in the red bodysuit. That was so iconic to me.
Jason Wu
Today, you’ve got hedge fund billionaires aligned with Karl Rove, running ads against me to try to get Democrats to vote for you [Bernie Sanders]. I know this game. I’m going to stop this game.
Hillary Clinton
Before he became ‘a working actor,’ as he now proudly calls himself, Jamie Dornan initially caught the public’s attention as a model – you may remember him from those greasy underwear ads with Eva Mendes, among many others.
Elvis Mitchell
Good governance is not fire-fighting or crisis-management. Instead of opting for ad-hoc solutions the need of the hour is to tackle the root cause of the problems.
Narendra Modi
Once they become AKC registered, the newspapers will become flooded with ads for them. And you’ll see Border collies in pet stores and animal shelters.
Donald McCaig
All business models have something challenging about them, but the problem with the attention merchant business model they have is they need to keep increasing the amount of ads they deliver to people and therefore make their product worse.
Tim Wu
In a new campaign ad, Jeb Bush referenced ‘The Godfather’ and said his nickname used to be ‘Veto Corleone’ because he vetoed so many bills in Florida. When you’re the third person in your family to run for president, maybe you shouldn’t bring up a movie trilogy where the third one was clearly the worst.
Jimmy Fallon
Even if, as is generally the case, everything that the ad says about the product is scrupulously honest, or at any rate scrupulously avoids outright dishonesty, the implication of the direct address of most commercials – that the announcer speaks with the viewer’s welfare at heart – is fraudulent.
Michael Schudson
I don’t know why people think I’m this ad-lib dude.
Mike Epps
And finally, and most importantly, the next time we go to war, don’t give a specific reason for the war that the left can seize upon and later flog us with it ad nauseam, just do it. Remember, the first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club.
Dennis Miller
Ads shouldn’t be in people’s way.
Chris Hughes
I don’t think anyone would object to Facebook selling ads or having ads directed at me, as long as people didn’t think those ads were manipulated by personal data.
Ro Khanna
Over at Barb Bowman, she’s arguing that we should turn off Facebook’s tracking of ads. I totally disagree; those trackers make newsfeed filtering work better and potentially could help bring me better ads, which improves my life.
Robert Scoble
Donald Trump has many ads about Hillary Clinton’s character and it’s fair to look at both.
Matt Schlapp
If candidates spend money on ads and other political speech and their opponents are rewarded with government handouts to attack them, that chills speech and is unconstitutional. Non-participating candidates certainly don’t volunteer to allow their opponents to receive taxpayer subsidies to bash them.
Bradley A. Smith
Darkwing Duck and Don Karnage are the most fun to do, because they’re both probably the closest to me – I kinda improvise a lot of them, kinda ad lib.
Jim Cummings
And the fifteenth century was an impassioned age, so ardent and serious in its pursuit of art that it consecrated everything with which art had to ad as a religious object.
Walter Pater
I have a lot of respect for advertising. If I didn’t teach and could go back in time, I might try and become a copywriter. I especially like print ads that combine a photo with a short caption or tag line.
Elaine Equi
Being a good Hans Haacke student, part of his influence on me is that there’s no difference between a gallery show and a film – or even an ad and a T-shirt-in terms of cultural legitimacy. They’re just different contexts in which to have some sort of communication.
Mike Mills
Living in the West, you see how there’s only two versions of how Asian men are supposed to be. Either they’re very nice, yuppie husbands with children in ads, or they’re IT geeks.
Kevin Kwan
Every ad is an investment in the long-term image of a brand.
David Ogilvy
When I first met Adèle I was like, ‘Wow, this girl has a strong character!’ She has something very free about her. I’m not used to it. Some actresses are too self-aware, they strike a pose. Adèle is a force of nature.
Lea Seydoux
Any seasoned deal maker will tell you that spontaneous negotiation’s a bad strategy; the ad hoc approach will leave you ripped-off, busted, conned, stiffed, outsmarted and generally holding the shitty end of the stick.
Glen Duncan
I have been struck by the pervasive frequency of pompously patriotic ads for the defense industry, usually accompanied by deferential salutations to our men and women who are heroically sacrificing their lives in our defense. Do we really need all of that for our security?
Zbigniew Brzezinski
Ads featuring real women and real beauty are such a necessary component to offset the potentially dangerous programming out there for little girls.
Rashida Jones
I gotta be involved. I still write ads; I still run around and rally the creative people.
Jerry Della Femina
There are ways you can find people to help you market your company on the Internet. If you have the right people helping you, you can get the word out. Newspaper and TV ads are expensive. If you can get the word out through social media, that’s a big advantage.
Michael Franzese
The notion of ever more old people needing ever more young people, who will in turn grow old and need even more young people, and so on ad infinitum, is an obvious ecological Ponzi scheme.
David Attenborough
I showed what I can do with butter, right? Eighty-five percent increase in sales. I’m very proud of them Country Life ads. They were funny and clever and classy like the Toblerone ads I grew up with.
John Lydon
Ads sell a great deal more than products. They sell values, images, and concepts of success and worth.
BrenГ© Brown
The reason we make money is because we have a few different business models. One is ads: we get incredibly high click rates because most people on Scribd are searching the site for something, or they came from a search engine, and they’re looking for something specific.
Trip Adler
I guess it’s ironic. I just did the Gucci cologne ad, and I was the cologne thief in junior high.
James Franco
British podcasts tend to shamefacedly shuffle the ads towards the end. Americans put them up front and promote them enthusiastically. I think the Americans have it right.
David Hepworth
In a recent attack ad, the NRA claims that President Obama cares about his own children more than he cares about other children. In response, President Obama was like, ‘Yeah, that’s how families work.’
Jimmy Fallon
We obviously – I’m from Michigan, so we saw a disproportionate number of these social media ads targeting us, targeting our population. So I want to close that loophole. That’s my amendment, so that no foreign entity can buy an ad for or against a candidate in our democracy.
Elissa Slotkin
Consumers never complain about ads being too smart.
Lee Clow
I am so spoiled. I cannot watch a show where it gets interrupted for ads. I have to TiVo it and skip through the ads, because the culture of advertising is so false and phony that I just… ugh, you know?
Alan Ball
People turn off the news, stop reading in-depth magazine articles – especially young people. Look at the increasing reluctance of young people to vote. I think a lot of that is directly – you can lay it at the feet of these negative campaigns and relentless attack ads.
John Hickenlooper
More than 80% of our revenue comes from people viewing ads on mobile devices. Inside Twitter, we talk and think mobile first.
Shailesh Rao
Why is it when you turn on the TV you see ads for telephone companies, and when you turn on the radio you hear ads for TV shows, and when you get put on hold on the phone you hear a radio station?
Jerry Seinfeld
The ad industry thinks their clients are their customers. They think the companies who pay for the production are the ones they are supposed to serve. So the ads they produce make their clients happy… but infuriate the rest of us.
Simon Sinek
My men’s-underwear print ads are very popular!
Calvin Klein
I would audition for 50-60 ads in a month and would get nothing. It affected me not just mentally but also physically. I put on 14 KGs in those two years.
Rohit Saraf
Today it is not the classroom nor the classics which are the repositories of models of eloquence, but the ad agencies.
Marshall McLuhan
The ads that podcasts manage to sell tell you a lot about who they think is listening. They include services that promise to make your investment portfolio ethical, deliver exotic, ready meals to your home, or guarantee better sleep thanks to luxury bed linen.
David Hepworth
There are a lot of people that don’t scour websites regularly or read music reviews. They need whatever, the other kinds of stuff, whether it’s an appearance on Lettterman or posters or ads. They need to kind of be hit more in the face and be told that there’s something new out there.
David Byrne
The algorithms that orchestrate our ads are starting to orchestrate our lives.
Eli Pariser
One of the most overused phrases in political commentary is that someone is running a ‘negative’ campaign filled with ‘attack’ ads.
Mercedes Schlapp
Most ads are ignored because every customer has a mental filter that evaluates and dismisses both of these languages of Ad-Speak with a single question: What are they not telling me?
Roy H. Williams
The Internet is all about accessing entertainment. Realistically, 50 to 80 percent of all traffic is people downloading stuff for free. If you can turn that huge market share into something that you can monetize, even if it is just with ads, you will end up making more money than with all other revenue streams combined.
Kim Dotcom
Positivism eliminates any kind of natural law principle – for example, that there are economic laws which can be transgressed only at your peril. With positivism, there is a tendency to leap into ad hoc economic theory.
Murray Rothbard
Growing up female in America. What a liability! You grew up with your ears full of cosmetic ads, love songs, advice columns, whoreoscopes, Hollywood gossip, and moral dilemmas on the level of TV soap operas. What litanies the advertisers of the good life chanted at you! What curious catechisms!
Erica Jong
I live and reign since I have abandoned those pleasures which you by your praises extol to the skies.
[Lat., Vivo et regno, simul ista reliqui
Quae vos ad coelum effertis rumore secundo.]
The White Horse video which was directed by Marco Ovando started off with a biker theme. Once Ava Sanjurjo came in as stylist along with Marco & I it really took it’s own shape. It was all very improvised but wound up paying homage to NY and night life. People say it reminds them of a Guess ad which I love!
Nomi Ruiz
When I was a student at Princeton University, I was working part time in a grocery store. I saw an ad for teachers of a prep course. I don’t remember what it paid, but it was easily double or triple the minimum wage.
John Katzman
I was in Minnesota, where I was born, and I did print ads and commercials. And that was always cool ’cause when you’re little, you can only work two hours a day, and it changes.
Yara Shahidi
Hillary [Clinton] had started running a million-dollar ad campaign trying to define [Donald] Trump as temperamentally unfit for the office and intellectually unfit. No experience. It’s dangerous to let Trump anywhere near the nuclear codes and the push button and so forth.
Rush Limbaugh
So what starts is ad hoc and you never know where it’s going to lead, so it’s important to keep an open mind about those things.
Evan Parker
Here is what the practical impact of Citizens United means. What Citizens United means is that corporations call hundreds of millions of dollars into television ads, radio ads, and other forms of advertising to defeat those candidates who stand up and take them on.
Bernie Sanders
I will be in Orlando during the atheist convention to do my best to counter the assaults upon Christ of the atheists. I also plan on running a large newspaper ad in the Orlando Sentinel addressed to the atheists and warning the Orlando area of the atheists’ vile plans for their children.
Bill Murray
Remember that the headline and the appeals are ONE AND THE SAME. In successful ads, the appeal is almost always expressed in the headline.
John Caples
Man is a means and not an end, and he is a means to economic or political ends which are not really ends in themselves but means to other ends which in their turn are means and so ad infinitum
Christopher Dawson
If I was gay, there would be no closet. You would never see the closet I came out of. Why? Because I’d have burned it for kindling by the time I was twelve… If I was gay, at this stage of the game?age 37, aging alternative icon?I’d be taking out ads.
Henry Rollins
Any ad consciously attended to is comical. Ads are not meant for conscious consumption. They are intended as subliminal pills for the subconsious in order to exercise an hypnotic spell, especially on sociologists.
Marshall McLuhan
A lot of weird ads. Sally Struthers with that little kid: ‘Just 55 cents, the price of a cup of coffee, feeds this kid and his family for a week.’ Yeah, where is that? ‘Cause I wanna move there.
Robert Schimmel
Ads are planned and written with some utterly wrong conception. They are written to please the seller. The interests of the buyer are forgotten.
Claude C. Hopkins
We’ve come to be consumed by a 24-hour, slash-and-burn, negative ad, bickering, small-minded politics that doesn’t move us forward.
Barack Obama
If you have a native monetization system where the atomic unit of content is the ad unit, that scales down all the way to a small screen experience. That’s why Twitter is performing so well on mobile.
Fred Wilson
I don’t like ads. I don’t like selling things. That’s not me.
Nuseir Yassin
“Spirituality comes from questioning everything but at the same time accepting everything. You can even be spiritual watching TV. When the ad comes on and says, “Don’t hate me because I am beautiful,” question that.”
K. D. Lang
Last week John McCain said the fundamentals of our economy are strong. This week, he said it’s the worst crisis since World War II. So he suspended his campaign, unless you count doing interviews, airing attack ads, sending out surrogates on TV to attack Obama.
Bill Maher
I don’t think people in Hawaii like negative ads, whether it’s done by an independent group or whether it’s done by the campaign itself.
Colleen Hanabusa
I would write ads for deodorants or labels for catsup bottles if I had to.
John Updike
Plan the sale when you plan the ad
Leo Burnett
When George Bush used the Willie Horton ad, he knew what he was doing.
Paul Tsongas
When you don’t have accountability, there’s no limit to the things that people will say. One of the restraints on the vitriol and the filth that so often is part of the American political debate is that candidates have to stand by their ads.
Sheldon Whitehouse
‘Targeting’ is polite ads-speak for the data levers that Facebook exposes to advertisers, allowing that predatory lot to dissect the user base – that would be you – like a biology lab frog, drawing and quartering it into various components, and seeing which clicked most on its ads.
Antonio Garcia Martinez
Even though I played national level badminton, I told my parents when I was in 10th that I was not interested in continuing. Being a model or actor fascinated me from a young age, and I even did a couple of ads when I was just eight years old.
Deepika Padukone
The election is in full-swing. Republicans have taken out round-the-clock ads promoting George Bush. Don’t we already have that? It’s called Fox News.
Craig Kilborn
jace’s clothes had been clean,stylish,ordinary. Sebastian had been wearing a long black wool trench coat that had looked expensive. Like an evil Burbeery ad, Simon said when she was done.
Cassandra Clare
Web media needs to move to TV metaphor – with full-screen imagery and other content interrupted with full-screen ads.
Nick Denton
Far more thought and care go into the composition of any prominent ad in a newspaper or magazine than go into the writing of their features and editorials.
Marshall McLuhan
The television industry claims they are only reflecting society with their programming and have no influence on behavior. If that is the case then why do businesses spend millions on TV ads that have no influence?
Randall Wright
Certainly, living in the U.S., as I have for over two decades, you see how Asians are portrayed in the media… I didn’t see myself represented, you know, when I used to look at ads on TV.
Kevin Kwan
Politico reports, multiple advisers to the Right To Rise super Pac concede privately that the $40 million spent on positive ads aimed at telling Bush`s story yielded no tangible dividends.
Chris Hayes
I love Queen Latifah! Queen Latifah is so beautiful! Every time you see her, if it’s in a cosmetics ad, or on the red carpet, she’s always flawless.
Yvette Nicole Brown
The White House begun airing their TV commercials to re-elect the president, and the John Kerry campaign is condemning his use of 9/11 in the ads. He said, it is unconscionable to use the tragic memory of a war in order to get elected, unless of course, it’s the Vietnam War.
Jay Leno
You haven’t seen me in my own ads. You don’t see my logo all over my clothes. From the beginning, I wanted the clothes to stand on their own.
John Varvatos
Tumultuouness,if coupled to discipline and cool mind,is not such a bad sort of thing.That unless one wants to live a stunningly boring life,one ought to terms with one`s darker side ad one`s darker energies
Kay Redfield Jamison
In a sense, knowledge shrinks as wisdom grows, for details are swallowed up in principles. The details for knowledge which are important, will be picked up ad hoc in each avocation of life, but the habit of the active utilization of well-understood principles is the final possession of WISDOM.
Alfred North Whitehead
TiVo and other digital recording devices have confounded advertisers. The ad industry sees the technology as a threat to their product.
Simon Sinek
You know, the whole philosophy of ad hoc combinations has its strengths and its weaknesses.
Evan Parker
Funny, ‘ow you can ‘old a jewel in your ‘and, and toss it away, and not even know what you ‘ad until it’s gone.
Jennifer Donnelly
We’ve come to be consumed by a 24-hour, slash-and-burn, negative ad, bickering, small-minded politics that doesn’t move us forward. Sometimes one side is up and the other side is down. But there’s no sense that they are coming together in a common-sense, practical, nonideological way to solve the problems that we face.
Barack Obama
It did what all ads are supposed to do: create an anxiety relievable by purchase.
David Foster Wallace
I can say that every ad that I control, that I’m going to make sure my ads are positive.
John Hickenlooper
I really wanted to have a different approach of beauty because when I came to America, they were still heavily, heavily plastic. The ads were so heavily retouched.
Francois Nars
An ad that pretends to be art is – at absolute best – like somebody who smiles warmly at you only because he wants something from you.
David Foster
Ads get a bad reputation sometimes because they’re not useful. They’re not relevant, or slow.
Susan Wojcicki
I don’t want to kill ads. I think advertising is great, and I’m very aware that there’s multiple revenue streams in television, subscription and advertising. But I also don’t want to put my head in the sand, and I think the world is changing.
Charlie Ergen
Epic will manually curate the Epic Games storefront rather than relying on algorithms or paid ads.
Tim Sweeney
‘Ms.’ always flouted the rules of the ad world that say, especially for products directed at women, that the ad must be connected to the editorial. You don’t have food ads unless you have recipes. You don’t get clothing ads unless you have lavish fashion coverage. We never did that; every other women’s magazine does.
Gloria Steinem
I was not getting work, even after auditioning for films. So I started working in a studio as a photographer; I assisted a cinematographer for two ads. I was thinking that I will get into photography or cinematography or assist someone. But then the ‘Dangal’ offer came, and I was busy with the auditions.
Fatima Sana Shaikh
Publicists cater to bloggers because they can play them; bloggers cater to publicists because they want their ads.
Stephen Rodrick
There is no such thing as a good or bad ad in isolation. What is good at one moment is bad at another. Research can trap you into the past.
William Bernbach
Anyone who is secure about herself shouldn’t be threatened by the ads I do.
Calvin Klein
Ads are not written to entertain. When they do, those entertainment seekers rare little likely to be the people whom you want. This is one of the greatest advertising faults. Ad writers abandon their part. They forgot they are salesmen and try to be performers. Instead of sales, they seek applause
Claude C. Hopkins
I understand that people can start to say stop it, let me have a break and look at my emails without having an ad pop up.
Maurice Levy
Advertising isnt just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought. At every company that sells ads, a significant portion of their engineering team spends their day tuning data mining, writing better code to collect all your personal data.
Jan Koum
The aim is to influence customers to use your product on their own, again and again without relying on overt calls to action such as ads or promotions.
Nir Eyal
Commercials certainly pay more than films. I was pleasantly surprised at the profitability of commercials when I did my first ad for a popular soap brand years ago. I was paid a huge amount of money for a mere 30 seconds of screen presence. After that, ads have been a regular feature in my career.
Amruta Khanvilkar
For men may prove and use their friends, as the poet expresses it, usque ad aras, meaning that a friend should not be required to act contrary to the law of God.
Miguel de Cervantes
The Romans dominated Egypt for four hundred years, from the time of Augustus (30 BC to 395 AD).
Michael Tsarion
To stumble twice against the same stone, is a proverbial disgrace.
[Lat., Culpa enim illa, bis ad eundem, vulgari reprehensa proverbio est.]
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Nullum ad nocendum tempus angustum est malis.
No time is too short for the wicked to injure their neighbors.
Seneca the Younger
I said during the course of the campaign I didn’t like it and I don’t like the idea of having an opponent’s picture on your ads and it would be nice to see candidates sign a pledge like that.
Scott McCallum
That’s how I taught myself how to draw – tracing the ads and petting new clothes on the models.
Stephen Sprouse
The gospel creates the church, which spreads the gospel, which creates more churches, which in turn spread the gospel further ad infinitum.
John Stott
The report begins by asserting that it is a ‘comprehensive’ look at Benghazi resulting from an intensive investigation of nearly two years. Neither claim is true. Instead, the report is a reflection of a dysfunctional committee and the reluctant, ad hoc approach to Benghazi of its leadership and top staff.
Stephen F. Hayes
Calvin: They say the world is a stage. But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines. Hobbes: Maybe that’s why it’s hard to tell if we’re living in a tragedy or a farce. Calvin: We need more special effects and dance numbers.
Bill Watterson
Even though voters overwhelmingly dislike negative ads, they do influence voters’ opinions about a candidate.
Mercedes Schlapp
Using realtime ads, even mortgage companies can create ads that matter to you right now.
Kimbal Musk
My being bought as a politically outspoken artist is a more potent advertising tool for Apple than a 100 more explicit ads.
Nulla (enim) res tantum ad dicendum proficit, quantum scriptio Nothing so much assists learning as writing down what we wish to remember.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
In the last couple of weeks I have seen the ads for the Wonder Bra.
Is that really a problem in this country? Men not paying enough attention to women’s breasts?
Hugh Grant
If you look at yourself and life through the lens of your ego, you’ll feel isolated, ganged up on, alone, dfferent, and not part of the crowd. If you look through the lens of Spirit, knowing we’re all one, you’ll always feel safe, secure, ad loved.
Sonia Choquette
Online advertising may not be much more successful than an old double-barrel, but – like a good spray of buckshot – it makes up for its lack of accuracy with sheer volume. There are 10 unique ads listed with every Gmail message in your queue, each tied to the message content. And a paying sponsor.
Douglas Rushkoff
I’ve done a fair amount of commercials. I did a bunch of Champion spark plug ads and Levi’s and Molson Beer. You wouldn’t know it. But some of it’s damn good.
Ry Cooder
That’s where you come in. I want into that guy’s mind, and you need to tell me how to do it.” Ad shrugged. “Personally, I’d just use a hacksaw, but—” “There are potential consequences and side effects,” Eddie said carefully. “Like what?” “Well, worst case… he could end up like Adrian.
