Beauty, love and shampoo

Street-Advertising-In-New-York 1

The goal of all marketing is the reduction of a big desire to a small desire. In other words, you long for beauty, love, friendship, wisdom, and it is the job of the marketer to convince you that the way you will achieve these desires is to purchase a certain brand of shampoo.

Never meant to satisfy

Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desire exists. A baby feels hunger; well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex.

If I find in myself a desire which
no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probably explanation is that
I was made for another world.

If none of my earthly pleasure satisfy it, that does not mean the universe is a fraud . . . earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing.

–C. S. Lewis
