David Ogilvy quotes :
The secret of long life is double careers. One to about age sixty, then another for the next thirty years.David Ogilvy
I do not regard advertising as entertainment or an art form, but as a medium of information.David Ogilvy
Advertising is a business of words, but advertising agencies are infested with men and women who cannot write. They cannot write advertisements, and they cannot write plans. They are helpless as deaf mutes on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera.David Ogilvy
In the modern world of business, it is useless to be a creative, original thinker unless you can also sell what you create.David Ogilvy
Can advertising foist an inferior product on the consumer? Bitter experience has taught me that it cannot. On those rare occasions when I have advertised products which consumer tests have found inferior to other products in the same field, the results have been disastrous.David Ogilvy
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
Never write an advertisement which you wouldn't want your family to read. You wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't tell them to mine.David Ogilvy
Remove advertising, disable a person or firm from proclaiming its wares and their merits, and the whole of society and of the economy is transformed. The enemies of advertising are the enemies of freedom.David Ogilvy
Good copy can't be written with tongue in cheek, written just for a living. You've got to believe in the product.David Ogilvy
