"Advertisers are the interpreters of our dreams – Joseph interpreting for Pharoah.

Like the movies, they infect the routine futility of our days with purposeful adventure. Their weapons are our weaknesses: fear, ambition, illness, pride, selfishness, desire, ignorance. And these weapons must be kept as bright as a sword."

– E. B. White, "Truth in Advertising," The New Yorker (July 11, 1936) White wrote Stuart Little, The Elements of Style (with William Strunk, Jr.), Charlotte’s Web and other works.
