Famous quotes containing the words television and/or web:

    Never before has a generation of parents faced such awesome competition with the mass media for their children’s attention. While parents tout the virtues of premarital virginity, drug-free living, nonviolent resolution of social conflict, or character over physical appearance, their values are daily challenged by television soaps, rock music lyrics, tabloid headlines, and movie scenes extolling the importance of physical appearance and conformity.
    Marianne E. Neifert (20th century)

    The soul knows only the soul; the web of events is the flowing robe in which she is clothed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
