Famous quotes containing the words media and/or cool:

    The question confronting the Church today is not any longer whether the man in the street can grasp a religious message, but how to employ the communications media so as to let him have the full impact of the Gospel message.
    Pope John Paul II (b. 1920)

    Beauty sat bathing by a spring,
    Where fairest shades did hide her;
    The winds blew calm, the birds did sing,
    The cool streams ran beside her.
    My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye
    To see what was forbidden:
    But better memory said Fie;
    So vain desire was chidden—
    Anthony Munday (1553–1633)
