Advertising Quotes

Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.

Banksy
