Ralph Waldo Emerson in his journal entry of 15 March 1870 notes:

My new book sells faster, it appears, than either of its foregoers. This is not for its merit, but only shows that old age is a good advertisement. Your name has been seen so often that your book must be worth buying.

(cf. RalphWaldoEmerson (5 Aug 2003), ...)
