Therefore, its meaning is dependent upon the context in which it is used; the term may apply to both the information and its form. A communiqué (pronounced /kəˈmjuːnɨkeɪ/) is a brief report or statement released by a public agency.

Famous quotes containing the word message:

    if once the message greet him
    That his True Love doth stay,
    If Death should come and meet him,
    Love will find out the way!
    —Unknown. Love Will Find Out the Way (l. 53–56)

    The message you give your children when you discipline with love is “I care too much about you to let you misbehave. I care enough about you that I’m willing to spend time and effort to help you learn what is appropriate.” All children need the security and stability of food, shelter, love, and protection, but unless they also receive effective and appropriate discipline, they won’t feel secure.
    Stephanie Marston (20th century)

    The photographic image ... is a message without a code.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)
