David Ogilvy Quotes

Never write an advertisement which you wouldn’t want your own family to read. You wouldn’t tell lies to your own wife. Don’t tell them to mine. Do as you would be done by.

Good products can be sold by honest advertising.

If you’re trying to persuade people to do something, or buy something, it seems to me you should use their language. —David Ogilvy
