Brand  – NOTABLE QUOTABLE –  “If you give someone a present, and you give it to them in a Tiffany box, it’s likely that they’ll believe that the gift has higher perceived value than if you gave it to them in no box or a box of less prestige. That’s not because the receiver of the gift is a fool. But instead, because we live in a culture in which we gift wrap everything– our politicians, our corporate heads, our movie, and TV stars, and even our toilet paper.” – Michael Levine (The PR consultant of choice for Nike, Pizza Hut, Michael Jackson, Prince, etc.)
