Almost all of these lines are common quotes and cliches in the States. Credit the creative team for the concept, if you like, but not for original lines. This one's actually lifted from Grace Hopper's famed quote, "It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission."

Since I don't see Grace credited anywhere on the ad, I'd say these are borderline plagiaristic.
