“Quotes help us understand, inspire, motivate, clarify and show our approach to things around, this is why people and I love quotes.” – Takyou Allah Cheikh Malaynine

A quote about quotes is a fitting way to start the latest installment of the Midwest Marketing blog. There are quotes about life, love, the lack thereof and everything in-between, and marketing quotes fall somewhere in the middle of all of that. Quotes are so meaningful because they mean something different to whoever reads them, they truly are in the eye of the beholder.
