Eleven pipers piping (eleven PR quotes)

On the eleventh day of Christmas, the true love received eleven pipers piping which represent the eleven disciples. (Don’t have a clue where I’m going with this one but just stick with me!)

The dictionary meaning of ‘disciple’ is either: a personal follower of Christ during his life, especially one of the twelve Apostles or a follower or pupil of a teacher, leader, or philosopher.

So, this time I decided to compile a list of eleven quotes from influential people, who could be considered a teacher, a leader or philosopher. Here we go:

“The counsel on public relations is not an advertising man but he advocates for advertising where that is indicated. Very often he is called in by an advertising agency to supplement its work on behalf of a client. His work and that of the advertising agency do not conflict with or duplicate each other.” – Edward Bernays

“Public-relations specialists make flower arrangements of the facts, placing them so the wilted and less attractive petals are hidden by sturdy blooms.” – Alan Harrington

“We believe PR should be practiced to serve the public interest, to develop mutual understanding between organizations and their publics.” – James E. Grunig

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing about.” –  Benjamin Franklin

“PR is a mix of journalism, psychology, and lawyering – it’s an ever-changing and always interesting landscape.” – Ronn Torossian

“Without publicity there can be no public support, and without public support every nation must decay.” – Benjamin Disraeli

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffet

“If I was down to the last dollar of my marketing budget I’d spend it on PR!” – Bill Gates

“Publicity is absolutely critical. A good PR story is infinitely more effective than a front page ad.” – Richard Branson

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power.” – Malcolm X

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” – Rudyard Kipling
