Famous quotes containing the word commercial:

    The commercial class has always mistrusted verbal brilliancy and wit, deeming such qualities, perhaps with some justice, frivolous and unprofitable.
    Dorothy Nevill (1826–1913)

    The home is a woman’s natural background.... From the beginning I tried to have the policy of the store reflect as nearly as it was possible in the commercial world, those standards of comfort and grace which are apparent in a lovely home.
    Hortense Odlum (1892–?)

    There is every reason to rejoice with those self-styled prophets of commercial disaster, those harbingers of gloom,
    Over the imminent lateness of the denouement that, advancing slowly, never arrives,
    At the same time keeping the door open to a tongue-in-cheek attitude on the part of the perpetrators....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
