Famous quotes containing the words council, supreme and/or church:

    I think that cars today are almost the exact equivalent of the great Gothic cathedrals: I mean the supreme creation of an era, conceived with passion by unknown artists, and consumed in image if not in usage by a whole population which appropriates them as a purely magical object.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    For often at Church I’ve seen the stained high glass
    Pour out the Virgin and Saints, twist and untwist
    The mortal youth of Christ astride an ass.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
