"Diamonds are forever"
Just like your love and marriage will be...
Strange they don't tell you how a diamond can be spoiled with one small, errant strike...
Perhaps there's an analogy in there after all.
The author of the advertising slogan "every kiss begins with K" deserves a punch in the nose, if I never heard it again it would be too soon. Clearly I would not appreciate a diamond from Kay but I would be okay with one from De Beers :)

I'm wondering Tammi, if you received so many negative icons because some didn't understand that this quote is a commentary on how superficial the realm of politics and news reporting can be. Speaking for myself, it makes sense to me.

"...it must be hard to be a beautiful woman and no one will look at your soul..."

Age does not make you MATURE. It is the actions and behaviors that you display during adverse situations that do.

You cannot love without accepting that there is always a chance of loss or hurt. This is exactly what makes love so powerful, its like playing poker, the stakes are high, and so the reward is higher.

Love those who don't love you. When hate is directed toward you, repel it with love and use their hatred as motivation to show that tolerance, kindness, and acceptance are better ways to get ahead in this world.

Ahh, but you know the slogan. So Kay Jewelers spent their money well.

The marketers nightmare is that you remember the commercial but don't remember who that commercial is promoting.

Put it in context with really expensive advertising - Super Bowl commercials.

Off the cuff, this is all I can recall:

Budweiser is up there from over the years.
Dortios chips.
GoDaddy.com

Only 1 out of 3 there do I buy and it's not because of the advertising.

Back on topic:

What I find much more interesting about your quote is not the quote itself (which is interesting) but the judgeits given.

13 spam (?)
13 off topic (huh?!? that was a direct quote)
13 mean (?)

The coincidence of the numbers there is interesting.

If I had to guess, you have pissed off one person who only lives to make their mark on the world by exploiting Topix judgeits to make themselves feel superior.

Please, please, please.
Provide an attribution for your quotes.

Even if it's "unknown".

Give credit where credit is due.
