Quotes of the Day for 12 August 2000 – Shopping

Julius Rosenwald was born on this day in 1862, and you've probably never heard the name before. Just before the turn of the century he took control over the operation of Sears, Roebuck and Company, made sure orders were filled and warranties honored, and built a retail powerhouse. Before we race off to the mall this weekend, a few quotes on Shopping.

Van's signature


The quotes:

Marrying a man is like buying something you've been admiring for a long time in a shop window. You may love it when you get it home, but it doesn't always go with everything in the house.
     - Jean Kerr

If you don't find it in the index, look very carefully through the entire catalogue.
     - Sears, Roebuck, and Co., Consumer's Guide

Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends.
     - Cindy Lew

Early in my business career I learned the folly of worrying about anything. I have always worked as hard as I could, but when a thing went wrong and could not be righted, I dismissed it from my mind.
     - Julius Rosenwald
