It is the interest of the commercial world that wealth should be found everywhere.
Edmund Burke commercial quote

Humanity has been institutionalized and we are all the products of commercial and institutional life. We are now born in institutions called hospitals. We are raised in institutions called schools. We are trained for institutional corporate life in institutions called universities. We serve in institutions called corporations. We exist under the master institutions of military and government. We die in institutions called hospitals or nursing homes. From birth to the grave, mankind is an institutional creature.
— Bryant H. McGill

People get passionate about a song. It's been my experience if you put out radio candy, something commercial, it doesn't sell records.
— Trace Adkins

I'm a commercial writer, not an author. Margaret Mitchell was an author. She wrote one book.
— Mickey Spillane
