50,000 workers at the yue yen nike factory in china would have to work for nineteen years to earn what nike spends on advertising in one year.

Naomi Klein

An animal’s memory is not in words, they’ve got to be in pictures – it’s very detailed so let’s say the animal gets afraid of something. Like, for example you beat the dog up and they’re looking at you and your Nike shoes or any sneaker or anything like a Nike, he’s likely to be afraid of that – so anything without that Nike wingtip, he’s likely to be fine. If you think about it, that’s a different picture, than a Nike type shoe. Its specific because its sensory based.

Nike used to be known as Blue Ribbon Sports. What’s now Sara Lee used to be Consolidated Foods. And Exxon was once Standard Oil Company of New Jersey. These were name changes that worked. But for all the ones that do, there are 10 or 20 that don’t.

Part of an icon’s power comes from its indivisibility. The swoosh cannot be further deconstructed into its component parts. Just as golden arches mean McDonald’s, and the little red tab means Levi’s, the swoosh is Nike. The product is its icon, inseparably and without exception. To buy a pair of Nike shoes is to buy the Nike swoosh.
Douglas Rushkoff

Michael Bierut

Perhaps the most powerful lesson other brands can learn from Nike is the need to act in accordance with the reality of the world we live in.

Simon Mainwaring

For some, I realize, business is the all-out pursuit of profits, period, full stop, but for us business was no more about making money than being human is about making blood.
Phil Knight

Marathon running, like golf, is a game for players, not winners. That is why Callaway sells golf clubs and Nike sells running shoes. But running is unique in that the world’s best racers are on the same course, at the same time, as amateurs, who have as much chance of winning as your average weekend warrior would scoring a touchdown in the NFL.
Hunter S. Thompson

Naomi Klein

America’s universities are filled with economically ignorant haters of the free market, so university campuses have become major forums for union denunciations of such companies as Nike, Wal-mart, and others. Faculty and students claim to be concerned about ‘social justice,’ but they are simply being used as dupes by unions who are not at all concerned with justice of any sort. Rather, their main concern is increasing the coffers of union treasuries by driving non-union competitors from the market.
Thomas DiLorenzo

George Carlin

“nothing,” he muttered. “we were just cuddling. Um, what’s going on?.
