5 Best Don Draper Quotes From Season 1

Looking for the five best Don Draper quotes from Season 1? Many words can be used to best describe Don Draper, one of the lead characters in the television show "Mad Men": classy, womanizing and business-savvy. However, it is much easier to get to the essence of Don Draper by looking at his words. Here are the five best Don Draper quotes from Season 1 of "Mad Men."

  1. "People were buying cigarettes before Freud was born." This quote demonstrates Don Draper's incredible business skills.  One thing that has made Don Draper so successful in his career, as well as his life, is his ability to read and understand people.
  2. "I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one." Don Draper is a character that few can pinpoint exactly. He has a devil-may-care attitude, which this quote exemplifies.
  3. "You can't convince me for a second that you were ever unloved." Remember when we said that womanizing was one of Don Draper's most defining characteristics? This quote is a perfect example of that characteristic in action. Draper gets the women because he is suave, classy and always has an aura of mystery surrounding him.
  4. "[Nostalgia] is not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels – around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved." Don Draper has quite the checkered past, facts of which he rarely reveals. This intimate quote demonstrates that tortured past of his. Because he has been through so much in his life, perhaps that is why he is able to understand the wants and needs of others so well.
  5. "People tell you who they are, but we ignore it – because we want them to be who we want them to be." We may never know everything there is to know about Don Draper. We do know that he has a rather disillusioned view of the world and the people in it. Maybe that is the essence of Don Draper?
