Famous quotes containing the words brands and/or hostess:
“Mistakes, scandals, and failures no longer signal catastrophe. The crucial thing is that they be made credible, and that the public be made aware of the efforts being expended in that direction. The marketing immunity of governments is similar to that of the major brands of washing powder.”
—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
“You are retired
As if you were a feasted one and not
The hostess of the meeting.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
