Lions and tigers and bears! Oh, my!

Yesterday I finally met that man behind the curtain. That ghost behind the masters whose copy I hold in high esteem. Not Bush’s brain. But close. Someone whose work I’ve admired for decades. Imagine HE answered my ad “need a copywriter?” It’s because he’s leaving the corp copy world to become a screenwriter. Good for him!

In his honor, celebrate FRIDAY and take a one minute vacation to the land of OZ.

“Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma. “

“A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others. “

“Frightened? Child, you're talking to a man who's laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom, and chuckled at catastrophe... I was petrified.”

“He's not only merely dead / She's really most sincerely dead. “

“A place where there isn't any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain.”

“You people should consider yourselves lucky that I'm granting you an audience tomorrow instead of 20 years from now. “

“Now I know I have a heart, because it's breaking.”

“I've got a witch mad at me and you might get into trouble!”

“Only bad witches are ugly.”

“Don't be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don't talk.”
