Advertising Food Quotations

“Let advertisers spend the same amount of money improving their product that they spend on advertising and they wouldn't have to advertise it.”
Will Rogers (1879-1935)

"Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper."
Thomas Jefferson

“Advertisements are now so numerous that they are very negligently perused, and it has therefore become necessary to gain attention by magnificence of promises, and by eloquences sometimes sublime and sometimes pathetic. Promise, large promise, is the soul of an advertisement.”
Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
English writer, lexicographer, critic & conversationalist

“The trade of advertising is now so near to perfection that it is not easy to propose any improvement. But as every art ought to be exercized in due subordination to the public good, I cannot but propose it as a moral question to these masters of the public ear, whether they do not sometimes play too wantonly with our passions.”
Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) 'The Idler' (1759)
English writer, lexicographer, critic & conversationalist

“Chewing gum! A new and superior preparation of Spruce Gum.”

Chicago ‘Daily Democrat’
Advertisement for the first commercial chewing gum, October 25, 1850

“It is not necessary to advertise food to hungry people, fuel to cold people, or houses to the homeless.”
John Kenneth Galbraith (1908 -)
