While “Mad Men” may be the best scripted show currently on TV, it’s the real advertising profession that oozes provocation and controversy. So it’s been said:

  • The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. Anonymous
  • Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don’t know which half. John Wanamaker
  • Advertising is legalized lying. H. G. Wells
  • Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don’t have for something they don’t need. Will Rogers
  • A man who stops advertising to save money is like a man who stops a clock to save time. Henry Ford
