Charm quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#1. You have a good many little gifts and virtues, but there is no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, and the great charm of all power is modesty. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Charm quotes by Michael  Grant
#2. I want my mom," a little boy cried out suddenly.
Every voice fell silent. The boy had said what they were all feeling.
Caine hopped down from the car and went to the boy. He knelt down and took the boy's hands in his own. He asked the boy's name, and reintroduced himself. "We all want our parents back," he said gently, but loudly enough to be overheard clearly by those nearest. "We all want that. And I believe that will happen. I believe we will see all our moms and dads, and older brothers and sisters, and even our teachers again. I believe that. Do you believe it, too?"
"Yes." The little boy sobbed.
Caine wrapped him in a hug and said, "Be strong. Be your mommy's strong little boy."
"He's good," Astrid said. "He's beyond good."
Then Caine stood up. People had formed a circle around him, close but respectful. "We all have to be strong. We all have to get through this. If we work together to choose good leaders and do the right thing, we will make it."
The entire crowd of kids seemed to stand a little taller. There were determined looks on faces that had been weary and frightened.
Sam was mesmerized by the performance. In just a few minutes' time, Caine had infused hope into a very frightened, dispirited bunch of kids.
Astrid seemed mesmerized too, though Sam thought he detected the cool glint of skepticism in her eyes.
Sam was skeptical himself. He distrusted rehearsed displays. He distrusted charm. But it was hard not to thi #Quote by Michael Grant
Charm quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#3. Johannes Cabal would kill me for saying this, but he's my favorite Zeppelin-hopping detective. The fellow has got all the charm of Bond and the smarts of Holmes
without the pesky morality. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Charm quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#4. It's like the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy, or anyone who delights in anything ephemeral. The charm in a bottle of wine, the craft, all the work that goes into it . . . actually delighting in the fact that it's perishable and goes away I find really helpful. I've gotten a lot of miles out of a beautiful bottle of wine, not just for the taste and the buzz, but the symbolism of delighting in something that goes away. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Charm quotes by Alan King
#5. There's a charm, there's a rhythm, there's a soul to Jewish humor. When I first saw Richard Pryor perform, I told him, 'You're doing a Jewish act.' #Quote by Alan King
Charm quotes by Stephen King
#6. She had considered throwing them out a dozen times but in the end always backed away from the idea, as if some unknown charm would be broken by the act. And #Quote by Stephen King
Charm quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#7. She was entertained only by the gratification of her desires and by the direct exercise of her own charm. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Charm quotes by Archimedes
#8. Spoken of the young Archimedes: ... [he] was as much enchanted by the rudiments of algebra as he would have been if I had given him an engine worked by steam, with a methylated spirit lamp to heat the boiler; more enchanted, perhaps for the engine would have got broken, and, remaining always itself, would in any case have lost its charm, while the rudiments of algebra continued to grow and blossom in his mind with an unfailing luxuriance. Every day he made the discovery of something which seemed to him exquisitely beautiful; the new toy was inexhaustible in its potentialities. #Quote by Archimedes
Charm quotes by E. Lockhart
#9. We all know that Beauty grows to love the Beast. She grows to love him, despite what her family might think for his charm and education, his knowledge of art and his sensitive heart. #Quote by E. Lockhart
Charm quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#10. The prospect of soon losing her companion seemed to give force to every sweet quality and charm which Edith possessed. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Charm quotes by William Shakespeare
#11. This rough magic I here abjure and when I have required some heavenly music, which even now I do, to work mine end upon their senses that this airy charm is for, I'll break my staff, bury it certain fathoms in the earth, and deeper than did ever plummet sound, I'll drown my book. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Charm quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#12. The great charm in argument is really finding one's own opinions, not other people's. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Charm quotes by George Eliot
#13. A human being in this aged nation of ours is a very wonderful hole, the slow creation of long interchanging influences; and charm is a result of two such wholes, the one loving and the one loved. #Quote by George Eliot
Charm quotes by Jane Austen
#14. and the book was closed, and the charm was broken. Then, #Quote by Jane Austen
Charm quotes by Alex Morgan
#15. It's a section of the country where charm oozes from the men as easily as their southern drawls, and the women are soaked in seduction. #Quote by Alex Morgan
Charm quotes by Richard McKenna
#16. My early book learning came to me as naturally as the seasons in ... the little town in which I grew up. ... Quite early I began to find a special charm in an unpeopled world ... of lava rock and sagebrush desert. ... I was often more purely happy at such times than I think I have ever been since. #Quote by Richard McKenna
Charm quotes by Samantha Young
#17. You could charm the pants off absolutely anyone," I told him quietly.
He smirked. "I take it that means you like the idea?"
"I love the idea. I love everything you've said. But I know Ellie's excited about this, so we're going to give our friends what they want."
"Adam mentioned strippers," Braden warned me, his eyes twinkling.
"If Adam books a stripper for you, I'll force Ellie to book a stripper for me.
Chuckling, Braden relaxed back in his chair. "Let's agree to no strippers."
I raised my glass of water and waited for Braden to do the same. "To no strippers."
"To no strippers," he repeated.
"And let's just make this a motto for our marriage. #Quote by Samantha Young
Charm quotes by Arthur Balfour

Charm quotes by Oscar Wilde

Charm quotes by Nalini Singh
#20. Where did you learn your charm - the gulag? #Quote by Nalini Singh
Charm quotes by Amy Bloom
#21. The German deli was run by a distant cousin of Kaiser Wilhelm and the Great Neck Jews loved the place; they flocked to Kuch's. They said to one another, What a character he is, Otto, strictly old country, I'm telling you. Gus didn't think that Negroes would rush to shop in a store run by some retired slave owner, eager to share memories of fun times on the plantation, praising Massa's old-fashioned Mississippi charm. Jews were still chasing that absurd, wishful feather. Eventually, Jews would become like everybody else. They'd elevate small grievances; they'd cherish hurt feelings and ill treatment like they were signs of virtue. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Charm quotes by Geoff Ryman
#22. William has learned in his bones that survival takes the form of other people. They must know you, and for that to happen you must know them. Speak with them, charm them, and remember them. #Quote by Geoff Ryman
Charm quotes by Louis Sachar
#23. I remember my fourth grade teacher reading 'Charlotte's Web' and 'Stuart Little' to us - both, of course, by E. B. White. His stories were genuinely funny, thought provoking and full of irony and charm. He didn't condescend to his readers, which was why I liked his books, and why I wasn't a big reader of other children's' books. #Quote by Louis Sachar
Charm quotes by Lord Byron
#24. Muse of the many twinkling feet, whose charms are now extending up from legs to arms. #Quote by Lord Byron
Charm quotes by Michael Scott
#25. Reverse psychology is an awesome tool, I don't know if you guys know about it, but basically you can make someone think the opposite of what you believe, and that tricks them into doing something stupid. Works like a charm. #Quote by Michael Scott
Charm quotes by Charles Baxter
#26. Charm sometimes has a habit of taking its leave of you. (p.256) #Quote by Charles Baxter
Charm quotes by Qian Zhongshu
#27. Why do charming girls all have fathers? She can be hidden away all by herself in one's heart to cuddle, but when her father, uncle, and brother are dragged along with her, the girl stops being so cute and carefree and it's not so easy to conceal her away in your heart anymore. Her charm has been mixed in with the dregs. Some people talk about marriage as though it were homosexual love. It's not the girl they fancy, but her old man or her elder brother they admire. #Quote by Qian Zhongshu
Charm quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#28. Naturalness is the basis of effectiveness. If one poses to be something else, one loses the charm of naturalness. The result is that one accumulates stress. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Charm quotes by Joris-Karl Huysmans
#29. It was here that she was indeed Woman, for here she gave rein to her ardent and cruel temperament. She was living, more refined and savage, more execrable and exquisite. She more energetically awakened the dulled senses of man, more surely bewitched and subdued his power of will, with the charm of a tall venereal flower, on sacrilegious beds, in impious hothouses. #Quote by Joris-Karl Huysmans
Charm quotes by Gustav Stickley
#30. First, there is the bare beauty of the logs themselves with their long lines and firm curves. Then there is the open charm felt of the structural features which are not hidden under plaster and ornament, but are clearly revealed, a charm felt in Japanese architecture. #Quote by Gustav Stickley
Charm quotes by Gail Carson Levine
#31. Would you favor me with a dance?" Over all the others I was his choice! I curtsied, and he took my hand. Our hands knew each other. Char looked at me, startled. "Have we met before, Lady? #Quote by Gail Carson Levine
Charm quotes by Mark Twain
#32. All scenery in California requires distance to give it its highest charm. #Quote by Mark Twain
Charm quotes by Ouida
#33. The art of pleasing is more based on the art of seeming pleased than people think of, and she disarmed the prejudices of her enemies by the unaffected delight she appeared to take in themselves. #Quote by Ouida
Charm quotes by Mary Augusta Ward
#34. The only thing which can keep journalism alive - journalism, which is born of the moment, serves the moment, and, as a rule, dies with the moment - is - again the Stevensonian secret! - charm. #Quote by Mary Augusta Ward
Charm quotes by Jane Austen
#35. Every thing was a friend, or bore her thoughts to a friend; and though there had been sometimes much of suffering to her- though her motives had been often misunderstood, her feelings disregarded, and her comprehension under-valued; though she had known the pains of tyranny, of ridicule, and neglect, yet almost every recurrence of either had led to something consolatory ... and the whole was now so blended together, so harmonised by distance, that every former affliction had its charm. #Quote by Jane Austen
Charm quotes by Oscar Wilde
#36. Don't spoil him. Don't try to influence him. Your influence would be bad. The world is wide and has many marvellous people in it. Don't take away from me the one person who gives to my art whatever charm that possesses: my life as an artist depends on him. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Charm quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#37. He moved with a slow gait. I never saw him dance. He was a man who wrote, who interpreted the world. Wisdom grew out of being handed just the smallest sliver of emotion. A glance could lead to paragraphs of theory. If he witnessed a new knot among a desert tribe or found a rare palm, it would charm him for weeks. When we came upon messages on our travels – any wording, contemporary or ancient, Arabic on a mud wall, a note in English written in chalk on the fender of a jeep – he would read it and then press his hand upon it as if to touch its possible deeper meanings, to become as intimate as he could with the words. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Charm quotes by Osho
#38. The joy of having something comes from the length of time you have been wanting it, expecting it. Happiness really lies in the expectation. So once you achieve it, it loses its charm for you. Every happiness is imaginary: so long as you don't possess it, it seems to be abounding happiness. But as soon as it is actualized, it ceases to be happiness; our hands are as empty as before. And then we seek some other object for our desire, and we begin to expect it again. We feel so unhappy without it and imagine that happiness will come with it. #Quote by Osho
Charm quotes by Edith Wharton
#39. In this interpretative light Mrs. Grancy acquired the charm which makes some women's faces like a book of which the last page is never turned. There was always something new to read in her eyes. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Charm quotes by George Crabbe
#40. I grant indeed that fields and flocks have charms, For him that gazes or for him that farms. #Quote by George Crabbe
Charm quotes by Arthur Schnitzler
#41. When you cannot love or hate anymore, then where is the charm of life? #Quote by Arthur Schnitzler
Charm quotes by Heinrich Heine
#42. But that age ... exerts on us
An almost terrible charm,
Like the memory of things seen
And a life lived in dreams. #Quote by Heinrich Heine
Charm quotes by Paul Hamilton Hayne
#43. And Potomac flowed calmly, scarce heaving her breast, With her low-lying billows all bright in the west, For a charm as from God lulled the waters to rest Of the fair rolling river. #Quote by Paul Hamilton Hayne
Charm quotes by Lorrie Moore
#44. Like everyone he knew, he could discern the hollowness in people's charm only when it was directed at someone other than himself. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Charm quotes by John Fowles
#45. She had something that is gone from the world, from the female world. A sweetness without sentimentality, a limpidity without naivety. She was so easy to hurt, to tease. And when she teased, it was like a caress. #Quote by John Fowles
Charm quotes by Kimberly Pauley
#46. Myth: Vampires have the power to charm people.
Truth: Kinda depends on the vampire if you ask me. #Quote by Kimberly Pauley
Charm quotes by Vincent Price
#47. The jet is a great invention. Besides being a world shrinker, par excellence, it has much of the quality and charm of a roller coaster. And it's big. Once, years ago, on a ten-stop, cross-country air trip, I turned to the man next to me and said, quite genuinely: What keeps these big goddam things up in the air? #Quote by Vincent Price
Charm quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#48. A woman attracts men by her charm and holds them by their vices. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Charm quotes by Richard Gregory
#49. A fine woman shews her charms to most advantage when she seems most to conceal them. The finest bosom in nature is not so fine as what imagination forms. #Quote by Richard Gregory
Charm quotes by Debasish Mridha
#50. I appreciate all the beauty, all the love, all the joy, and all the little wonders and charm around me all the time. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Charm quotes by Kelly Moran
#51. If the gods of Gorgeousness and Charm and Sexiness had a threesome, Jason Burkwell would've been the resulting love child. #Quote by Kelly Moran
Charm quotes by Julian Fellowes
#52. How little Americans know when they disparage acquaintanceship in favour of real, true friendship. It is in acquaintanceship, bringing wiht it as it does delicious dinners, comfortable weekends, gossip shared in picturesque surroundings, but no real intimacy, no responsibility, that the greatest charm of social intercourse lies. #Quote by Julian Fellowes
Charm quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#53. If they want to flirt or initiate a friendship, they should carefully avoid giving the impression they are taking the initiative; men do not like tomboys, nor bluestockings, nor thinking women; too much audacity, culture, intelligence, or character frightens them.

In most novels, as George Eliot observes, it is the dumb, blond heroine who outshines the virile brunette; and in The Mill on the Floss, Maggie tries in vain to reverse the roles; in the end she dies and it is blond Lucy who marries Stephen. In The Last of the Mohicans, vapid Alice wins the hero's heart and not valiant Cora; in Little Women kindly Jo is only a childhood friend for Laurie; he vows his love to curly-haired and insipid Amy.

To be feminine is to show oneself as weak, futile, passive, and docile. The girl is supposed not only to primp and dress herself up but also to repress her spontaneity and substitute for it the grace and charm she has been taught by her elder sisters. Any self-assertion will take away from her femininity and her seductiveness. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Charm quotes by Marissa Meyer
#54. Naturally, Cinder got some on her gown - a smear of yellow frosting on the enormous skirt. She was mortified until Iko adjusted the skirt so the folds would hide it. "It was inevitable," Iko said with a wink. "It's part of your charm." Cinder #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Charm quotes by Kim Harrison
#55. I sniffed, wiping my eyes. "Look at that," I muttered. "The bastard
made me cry."
Jenks' wings made a cool spot on my neck. "Want me to pixy him?"
"No. But now I don't have the chance of a ghost's fart in a windstorm
to get that Pandora charm." That's not really what was bothering me,
though. It was Trent. Why did I even care what he thought? #Quote by Kim Harrison
Charm quotes by Victoria Schwab
#56. He lowers my hand and untangles his fingers. The noise fades, my chest loosening by degrees until I can breathe, like coming up through water. Again my eyes are drawn to the leather cord around his neck, the charm buried beneath the black fabric of his shirt. My gaze drifts down his arms, past his rolled sleeves, toward the hand that just let go of mine. Even in the twilight I can see a faint scar.
"Looks like you've lost a couple fights of your own," I say, running my fingers through the air near his hand, not daring to touch. "How did you get that?"
"A stint as a spy. I wasn't much good."
A crooked line runs down the back of his hand. "And that?"
"Scuff with a lion."
Watching Wesley lie is fascinating.
"And that?"
"Caught a piranha bare-handed."
No matter how absurd the tale, he says it steady and simple, with the ease of truth. A scratch runs along his forearm. "And that?"
"Knife fight in a Paris alley."
I search his skin for marks, our bodies drawing closer without touching.
"Dove through a window."
"Icicle."
"Wolf."
I reach up, my fingers hovering over a nick on his hairline.
"And this?"
"A History. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Charm quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#57. The charm, one might say the genius, of memory is that it is choosy, chancy and temperamental. #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Charm quotes by Javier Marias
#58. For me that's the only way of understanding a particular term that everyone here bandies about quite happily, but which clearly can't be quite that straight forward because it doesn't exist in many languages, only in Italian and Spanish, as far as I know, but then again, I don't know that many languages. Perhaps in German too, although I can't be sure: el enamoramiento--the state of falling or being in love, or perhaps infatuation. I'm referring to the noun, the concept; the adjective, the condition, are admittedly more familiar, at least in French, although not in English, but there are words that approximate that meaning ... We find a lot of people funny, people who amuse and charm us and inspire affection and even tenderness, or who please us, captivate us, and can even make us momentarily mad, we enjoy their body and their company or both those things, as is the case for me with you and as I've experienced before with other women, on other occasions, although only a few. Some become essential to us, the force of habit is very strong and ends up replacing or even supplanting almost everything else. It can supplant love, for example, but not that state of being in love, it's important to distinguish between the two things, they're easily confused, but they're not the same ... It's very rare to have a weakness, a genuine weakness for someone, and for that someone to provoke in us that feeling of weakness. #Quote by Javier Marias
Charm quotes by Laurel Lea
#59. Charm is the enchanted dart, light and subtle as a hummingbird. But it is deceptive in one thing: like a sense of humor, if you think you've got it, you probably haven't. #Quote by Laurel Lea
Charm quotes by Jules Verne
#60. Her shining tresses, divided in two parts, encircle the harmonious contour of her white and delicate cheeks, brilliant in their glow and freshness. Her ebony brows have the form and charm of the bow of Kama, the god of love, and beneath her long silken lashes the purest reflections and a celestial light swim, as in the sacred lakes of Himalaya, in the black pupils of her great clear eyes. Her teeth, fine, equal, and white, glitter between her smiling lips like dewdrops in a passion-flower's half-enveloped breast. Her delicately formed ears, her vermilion hands, her little feet, curved and tender as the lotus-bud, glitter with the brilliancy of the loveliest pearls of Ceylon, the most dazzling diamonds of Golconda. Her narrow and supple waist, which a hand may clasp around, sets forth the outline of her rounded figure and the beauty of her bosom, where youth in its flower displays the wealth of its treasures; and beneath the silken folds of her tunic she seems to have been modelled in pure silver by the godlike hand of Vicvarcarma, the immortal sculptor. #Quote by Jules Verne
Charm quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
#61. Nature eschews regular lines; she does not shape her lines by a common model. Not one of Eve's numerous progeny in all respects resembles her who first culled the flowers of Eden. To the infinite variety and picturesque inequality of nature we owe the great charm of her uncloying beauty. #Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier
Charm quotes by Kevin Dutton
#62. Ruthlessness, charm, focus, mental toughness, fearlessness, mindfulness (living in the moment), and action. Who wouldn't, at certain points in their lives, benefit from kicking one or two of them up a notch? What was important was being able to turn them back down. #Quote by Kevin Dutton
Charm quotes by Clint Eastwood
#63. You have to teach yourself to act but Michael Chekhov will give you the necessary tools - and for me, Psychological Gesture and Centers are extremely valuable They work like a charm. I've used them all along and still do. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Charm quotes by Robert Goolrick
#64. It was a story of people who don't choose life over death until it's too late to know the difference, people whose goodness is forgotten, left behind like a child's toy in a dusty playroom, people who see many things and remember only a handful of the them and learn from even fewer, people who hurt themselves, who wreck their own lives and then go on to wreck the lives of those around them, who cannot be helped or assuaged by love or kindness or luck or charm, who forget kindness, the feeling and practice of it, and how it can save even the worst, most misshapen life from despair. It was just a story about despair. #Quote by Robert Goolrick
Charm quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#65. It was a scent that lacked coyness, made no concessions to charm. Like standing on the edge of a great and terrifying cliff, it was shocking, beautiful, sublime. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Charm quotes by Karina Halle
#66. His smile is infectious. But again, so was the plague. #Quote by Karina Halle
Charm quotes by Erma Bombeck
#67. In two decades I've lost a total of 789 pounds. I should be hanging from a charm bracelet. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Charm quotes by Julia Quinn
#68. Your talents are for pointing guns and removing necklaces off ladies' necks?'
'I charm the necklaces off their necks ... Kindly make the distinction.'
'Oh, please.'
'I charmed you.'
She was all indignation. 'You did not.'
'Recall the night in question, Miss Eversleigh. The moonlight, the soft wind.'
'There was no wind.'
'You're spoiling my memory,' he growled.
'There was no wind,' she stated. 'You are romanticizing the encounter.'
'Can you blame me? he returned, smiling at her wickedly. 'I never know who is going to step through the carriage door. Most of the time I get a wheezy old badger. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Charm quotes by Boman Irani
#69. There's a great charm in theatre; I enjoyed doing it for twelve years and did lots of plays. At this chapter of my life, I am a cinema actor, and I would like to continue to be so, and at some point I would return to the theatre. #Quote by Boman Irani
Charm quotes by George Dzundza
#70. The writers are writing human beings, and they're writing about the human condition and how difficult it is to function in that condition. I think it's one of the charms of the show, the idea of redemption and working towards becoming better people, for everybody involved. #Quote by George Dzundza
Charm quotes by Peggy Martinez
#71. I told you that one day we'd both be able to reach for our dreams. Sometimes that means we have to let go of the people who would trample our souls so we can soar." Jen smiled sadly as she ran a finger over the ribbon charm. "And sometimes that means living in the moment and loving without restraint ... no matter how much time we may have together. #Quote by Peggy Martinez
Charm quotes by Tylerfucklin
#72. Derek turned to face Stiles, his expression falling into a very familiar stare of utter disgruntled bitchiness. "Would you like more water?"

Stiles squinted, resisting the urge to mutter, ' not sure if angry, or just emotionally constipated,' under his breath. Instead, he pursed his lips and attempted to lay on the old Stilinski charm by blurting out, "I could do with something a little... harder."

It was almost disturbing how Derek was able to stare back at Stiles without blinking once. "I have beer," he said slowly, cautiously.

Stiles narrowed his eyes, echoing the tone of Derek's voice, "...harder."

".... pudding?" Derek ventured, as if pudding was actually a viable option when Stiles was demanding something harder than beer. #Quote by Tylerfucklin
Charm quotes by Alexander Pushkin
#73. With womankind, the less we love them, the easier they become to charm. #Quote by Alexander Pushkin
Charm quotes by Julian Barnes
#74. By now, I probably preferred secondhand books to new ones. In America such items were disparagingly referred to as "previously owned"; but this very continuity of ownership was part of their charm. A book dispensed its explanation of the world to one person, then another, and so on down the generations; different hands held the same book and drew sometimes the same, sometimes a different wisdom from it. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Charm quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#75. What rent do you pay here?" I inquired. "I don't know, - what is it, Sam?" "All we make," answered Sam. It is a depressing place, - bare, unshaded, with no charm of past association, only a memory of forced human toil, - now, then, and before the war. They are not happy, these black men whom we meet throughout this region. There is little of the joyous abandon and playfulness which we are wont to associate with the plantation Negro. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Charm quotes by Nicholas Haslam
#76. I don't feel I have to charm somebody, I feel I want to know them; it's a different thing. #Quote by Nicholas Haslam
Charm quotes by Debasish Mridha
#77. Love is the giving from the heart
Without expecting any return.
Love is the sharing the beauty of life
Without expecting any charm or joy
Love is the caring with kindness
Without knowing caring is the joy. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Charm quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#78. It was a good ten minutes before I realized Roman and I had been sitting in silence. I stole a look at him out of the corner of my eye, but he seemed unbothered by quiet as I was.

For the first time in a long while, I didn't feel like I had to say anything. There was no one to comfort tor convince. There was no one to charm or encourage. I disappeared into myself as I drove on, trying to find my center. I could breathe. Be still.

What I hadn't expected was how much Roman seemed to need it, too.

Some people feared silence. They did anything to fill it, talking about things that didn't matter, asking questions just to hear some kind of response. it seemed to me that a lot of people saw it as a kind of failure. Evidence that they weren't interesting enough, or that a bond wasn't strong enough. Or maybe they were just nervous about what it would reveal about themselves. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Charm quotes by Terry Mancour
#79. If I didn't know better, I'd swear he was trying to charm her. Of course the transgenically-enchanted Alka Alon, male and female, were beings of surpassing beauty in human eyes, I'd learned. But few humans would have the temerity to even consider such a liaison. Tyndal apparently had a secret temerity mine somewhere I didn't know about. "What #Quote by Terry Mancour
Charm quotes by Charles Dickens
#80. To surround anything, however monstrous or ridiculous, with an air of mystery, is to invest it with a secret charm, and power of attraction which to the crowd is irresistible. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Charm quotes by Epictetus
#81. To adorn our characters by the charm of an amiable nature shows at once a lover of beauty and a lover of man. #Quote by Epictetus
Charm quotes by Osa Johnson I Married Adventure
#82. Unexpected difficulties, I think, are at once the challenge and the charm of the lives of all explorers. #Quote by Osa Johnson I Married Adventure
Charm quotes by Hilda Doolittle
#83. Love has no charm
when Love is swept to earth:
you'd make a lop-winged god,
frozen and contrite,
of god up-darting,
winged for passionate flight. #Quote by Hilda Doolittle
Charm quotes by Eloisa James
#84. He'd never seen a lady's hair down in a public place, and here was Miss Jerningham - Gabby - blithely shaking her curls, as if the crowd of stevedores, sailors, and boatmen around her were naught.
'A lady does not groom herself in public!'
'I'm afraid I'm used to being on display,' she said brightly. 'In the village, my father and I were the only Europeans. My hair was considered to be a good-luck charm- #Quote by Eloisa James
Charm quotes by Meg Cabot
#85. The practice does lose its charm if overused - #Quote by Meg Cabot
Charm quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#86. Gardening is a luxury occupation: an ornament, not a necessity, of life ... Fortunate gardener, who may preoccupy himself solely with beauty in these difficult and ugly days! He is one of the few people left in this distressful world to carry on the tradition of elegance and charm. A useless member of society, considered in terms of economics, he must not be denied his rightful place. He deserves to share it, however humbly, with the painter and poet. #Quote by Vita Sackville-West
Charm quotes by Avijeet Das
#87. The charm is in waiting... The fragrance of a hope... The sublimity of a dream... The eloquence of a silence... The resplendence of darkness... The heat of winter... The cold of summer... The flashback of a memory... The unliving of a moment... #Quote by Avijeet Das
Charm quotes by Shalom Auslander
#88. I kind of like it up here, Kugel said. It's got a certain fatalistic charm, a certain je ne sais fucked. #Quote by Shalom Auslander
Charm quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#89. My city. I pondered that phrase, wondered why Barrons felt that way. He never said "our world." He always said "your world." But he called Dublin his city. Merely because he'd been in it so long? Or had Barrons, like me, been beguiled by her tawdry grace, fallen for her charm and colorful dualities?
I looked around "my" bookstore. That was what I called it. Did we call the things of our heart our own, whether they were or not? #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Charm quotes by Carrie Fisher
#90. Vultures are difficult to charm unless you're off somewhere rotting in the noonday sun. Casually rotting…a glib cadaver. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Charm quotes by Josei Toda
#91. True greatness means that, even if you forget what you've done for others, you never forget what others have done for you. It means always doing your utmost to repay debts of gratitude. Such people radiate integrity, depth of character, bigheartedness and charm. #Quote by Josei Toda
Charm quotes by Brander Matthews
#92. To be clear is the first duty of a writer; to charm and to please are graces to be acquired later. #Quote by Brander Matthews
Charm quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#93. A lie isn't a lie until someone believes it. It doesn't matter how charming you are if there's no one to charm. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Charm quotes by Dean Koontz
#94. You can con God and get away with it, Granny said, if you do so with charm and wit. If you live your life with imagination and verve, God will play along just to see what outrageously entertaining thing you'll do next. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Charm quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#95. Rivalry adds so much to the charm of one's conquests. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Charm quotes by Joe Ducie
#96. I could do anything - be anything.
I could be a blackberry farmer.
I could worry about phone bills and nipping out to the corner shop for milk and bread of a morning.
Little Declan Jr. could learn to walk and talk with his real father, alive and well, and I could teach him how to wear a waistcoat with just the right amount of tragic charm, take him to school in a few years, maybe makehim a little sister to look out for, someone to keep him on his toes. He could play a sport - tennis, maybe, or football. I'd attend parent-teacher meetings and have after-work drinks with the neighbors, talking about how well so-and-so is doing, and why yes, Declan Jr. is learning to play the piano. Top of his class, you know - he has his mother's grace…
I could see all of that, as clear in my mind as sunlight on fresh snow, and so much more.
Just living day to day. One morning we could have picnics, my family and I, next to blue glacial lakes. One afternoon my son would be old enough to meet a girl, get in a fight, need to shave. One evening his sister will need help with her homework, and he'll complain, but he'll help.
And then one day the Elder Gods would descend from a blood-red sky in chariots lashed together from bone and flame and take away all my blackberries. #Quote by Joe Ducie
Charm quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#97. Charm is the ability to insult people without offending them; nerdiness the reverse #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Charm quotes by Nick Park
#98. Americans like the British kind of quirkiness and the strange accent. They find it kind of cute or something, with a certain charm. #Quote by Nick Park
Charm quotes by Virginia Woolf
#99. With a stranger he felt a renewal of hope because they could not say that he had not done what he had promised, and yielding to his charm would give him a fresh start - #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Charm quotes by Sylvia Plath
#100. This is my first snow at Smith. It is like any other snow, but from a different window, and there lies the singular charm of it. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Charm quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#101. Vin," he said flatly, "did you just suggest that we attend a ball being held in the middle of a city we're besieging?"
"You think it's a good idea," Vin said, smiling impishly.
"It's a crazy idea," Elend said. "I'm emperor - I shouldn't be sneaking into the enemy city so I can go to a party."
Vin narrowed her eyes, staring at him.
"I will admit, however," Elend said, "that the concept does have considerable charm. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Charm quotes by James Gates Percival
#102. Happy the life, that in a peaceful stream,
Obscure, unnoticed through the vale has flow'd;
The heart that ne'er was charm'd by fortune's gleam
Is ever sweet contentment's blest abode. #Quote by James Gates Percival
Charm quotes by Stephen King
#103. Holly sighs. "I'm out of cigarettes, too." "Those things will kill you," Jerome says. She gives him a flat look. "Yes! That's part of their charm. #Quote by Stephen King
Charm quotes by Nora Roberts
#104. He walked outside onto the terrace and sat. Obviously settled and comfortable, he poured coffee. There were ways and ways to gain trust, he thought. With
a bird with a broken wing, it took patience, care, and a gentle touch. With a high-strung horse that had been whipped, it took diligence and the risk of being kicked. With a woman, it took a certain amount of charm. He was willing to combine all three. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Charm quotes by Kristy Cunning
#105. Why do I feel bad about leaving him behind?

I liked it better when I just wanted to key his car to feel good.

He's like Anna. Once they're in your life, you just adapt to their creepy ways and start to find the weird charm in them. Damn him for making me miss her, and damn him for worming his way into the part of my mind that makes me worry about him.

"Are you going to be okay?" I ask when the knocking gets really obnoxious.

He groans.

"Only if you make her stop before I have to kill her and really piss Arion off."

With that, I remember Damien is also a monster, and I turn and head off with the assurance he's a big boy who can take care of himself, even when he looks sad, miserable, and a little lonely. #Quote by Kristy Cunning
Charm quotes by Kendare Blake
#106. The state of shock is losing its
charm. I want my brain back. Can't it just shake itself off like
a dog already and get back to work? #Quote by Kendare Blake
Charm quotes by Robertson Davies
#107. The great charm of cats is their rampant egotism, their devil-may-care attitude toward responsibility, their disinclination to earn an honest dollar ... #Quote by Robertson Davies
Charm quotes by Fumiko Enchi
#108. It's no game. Believe me, she is a woman of far greater complexity than you - or anyone - realize. The secrets inside her mind are like flowers in a garden at nighttime, filling the darkness with perfume. Oh, she has extraordinary charm. Next to that secret charm of hers, her talent as a poet is really only a sort of costume. #Quote by Fumiko Enchi
Charm quotes by Tatiana De Rosnay
#109. The opening lines of a book are so important. You really need to somehow charm your reader. If you can't get her attention in the first pages, you may have lost her. There has to be an ambience. #Quote by Tatiana De Rosnay
Charm quotes by Mason Cooley
#110. The nonsense that charms is close to sense. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Charm quotes by Garry Wills
#111. Groves, with his eye for sizing up people who could get things done, saw the deep ambition Oppenheimer covered with his surface charm. #Quote by Garry Wills
Charm quotes by Addison Moore
#112. Kenny is a drug, and I've just had the best hit of my life. I'm not losing this addiction. I'm in, all the way, pledging my voluntarily servitude to the gateway of my desire. Kenny was the freedom I was longing for. Love and all this wild pent up desire, proved to be the combination that set me free. But only Kenny had the power to unleash me. She scrubbed the impurity from my life and washed clean the world, so I could see it stark and clear for the very first time. Kenny perfumed my existence with her regal charm, her sovereign splendor. Kenny is in everyway sublime. #Quote by Addison Moore
Charm quotes by Gustave Eiffel
#113. There is an attraction and a charm inherent in the colossal that is not subject to ordinary theories of art ... The tower will be the tallest edifice ever raised by man. Will it therefore be imposing in its own way? #Quote by Gustave Eiffel
Charm quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#114. Her voice is full of money, ...
That was it. I'd never understood before. It was full of money- that was the inexhaustible charm that rose and fell in it, the jingle of it, the cymbals' song of it ... High in a white palace the king's daughter, the golden girl ... #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Charm quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#115. You have an idea what the new country looks like. Still, you are very much at home, although not truly at peace, in the old country. You know the ways of the old country, it's joys and pains, its happy and sad moments. You have spent most of your days there. Even though you know that you have not found there what your heart most desires, you remain quite attached to it. It has become part of your very bones.

Now you have come to realize that you must leave it and enter the new country, where your Beloved dwells. You know that what helped and guided you in the old country no longer works, but what else do you have to go by? You are being asked to trust that you will find what you need in the new country. That requires the death of what has become precious to you: influence, success, yes, even affection and praise.

Trust is so hard, since you have nothing to fall back on. Still, trust is what is essential. The new country is where you are called to go, and the only way to go there is naked and vulnerable.

It seems that you keep crossing and recrossing the border. For a while you experience a real joy in the new country. But then you feel afraid and start longing again for all you left behind, so you go back to the old country. To your dismay, you discover that the old country has lost its charm. Risk a few more steps into the new country, trusting that each time you enter it, you will feel more comfortable and be able to stay longer. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Charm quotes by Roberto Bolano
#116. Write in the morning, revise in the afternoon, read at night, and spend the rest of your time exercising your diplomacy, stealth, and charm. #Quote by Roberto Bolano
Charm quotes by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera
#117. [She] had the indefinable charm of someone who said little but thought much. Miss Prim had always felt that such people were at a marked advantage. They never said anything tactless, never spouted nonsense, never had cause to regret their words or justify themselves. #Quote by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera
Charm quotes by Saffron Burrows
#118. Location work has its charms, and can seem glamorous on the outside, but I think living at home and having the stability of a home life once you've finished work is very underrated! #Quote by Saffron Burrows
Charm quotes by Jean-Paul Belmondo
#119. Charm is the ability to make others forget that you look as you do. #Quote by Jean-Paul Belmondo
Charm quotes by Corinne Michaels
#120. You're not horrible. I don't think what we're doing is horrible. Neither of us thought we'd be here. I think with my good looks and charm you were doomed." Liam winks. #Quote by Corinne Michaels
Charm quotes by Marcel Proust
#121. When we are in love, our love is too vast to be wholly contained within ourselves; it radiates outwards, reaches the resistant surface of the loved one, which reflects it back to its starting-point; and this return of our own tenderness is what we see as the other's feelings, working their new, enhanced charm on us, because we do not recognize them as having originated in ourselves. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Charm quotes by Noel Coward
#122. Consider the public. Never fear it nor despise it. Coax it, charm it, interest it, stimulate it, shock it now and then if you must, make it laugh, make it cry, but above all never, never, never bore the living hell out of it. #Quote by Noel Coward
Charm quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#123. Just before they boarded the yacht, Cassandra glanced at Tom and reached up to a delicate necklace she'd worn constantly since the day he'd given it to her. She touched the little charm, made in the shape of Euler's infinity symbol, that hung at the hollow of her throat.
And as always, the private signal made him smile. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Charm quotes by Carl Jung
#124. Unconscious assumptions or opinions are the worst enemy of woman; they can even grow into a positively demonic passion that exasperates and disgusts men, and does the woman herself the greatest injury by gradually smothering the charm and meaning of her femininity and driving it into the background. Such a development naturally ends in profound psychological disunion, in short, in a neurosis. #Quote by Carl Jung
Charm quotes by Michel Foucault
#125. This book first arose out of a passage in [Jorge Luis] Borges, out of the laughter that shattered, as I read the passage, all the familiar landmarks of my thought - our thought that bears the stamp of our age and our geography - breaking up all the ordered surfaces and all the planes with which we are accustomed to tame the wild profusion of existing things, and continuing long afterwards to disturb and threaten with collapse our age-old distinction between the Same and the Other. This passage quotes a 'certain Chinese encyclopaedia' in which it is written that 'animals are divided into: (a) belonging to the Emperor, (b) embalmed, (c) tame, (d) suckling pigs, (e) sirens, (f) fabulous, (g) stray dogs, (h) included in the present classification, (i) frenzied, (j) innumerable, (k) drawn with a very fine camelhair brush, (l) et cetera, (m) having just broken the water pitcher, (n) that from a long way off look like flies'. In the wonderment of this taxonomy, the thing we apprehend in one great leap, the thing that, by means of the fable, is demonstrated as the exotic charm of another system of thought, is the limitation of our own, the stark impossibility of thinking that. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Charm quotes by G. Norman Lippert
#126. It stretched off into dim infinity, dotted with floating globes of silvery light. Mr. Grey had been told that the globes were swampfire, encased in a timeloop charm so they were inextinguishable. He'd never even heard of swampfire, much #Quote by G. Norman Lippert

Charm quotes by Molly Haskell
#128. Movies both reflect and create social conditions, but their special charm is to offer fantasy clothes as virtual reality, a world where people consume without the tedium of labor. Characters float in a world where the bill never comes due ... and we wonder why we're a debtor nation! #Quote by Molly Haskell
Charm quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#129. But time, it is like a charm. You never have as much as you think. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Charm quotes by Leo Tolstoy

Charm quotes by James Riley
#131. I was actually thinking about writing, maybe," Owen said. "About Charm?" Kiel asked, raising an eyebrow. "No?" Owen said, probably a bit too fast too be believable. "I have some other ideas. #Quote by James Riley
Charm quotes by Patrick Suskind
#132. She was one of those languid women, made of dark honey, smooth and sweet, and terribly sticky, who take control of a room with a syrupy gesture, a toss of the hair, a single slow whiplash of the eyes - and all the while remain as still as the centre of a hurricane, apparently unaware of the force of gravity by which they irresistibly attract themselves the yearnings and the souls of both men and women. #Quote by Patrick Suskind
Charm quotes by Ernst Junger
#133. The vastness and deadly desolation of the field, the long-distance operation of steel machines, and the relay of every movement in the night drew an unyielding Titan's mask over the proceedings. You moved toward death without seeing it; you were hit without knowing where the shot came from. Long since had the precision shooting of the trained marksman, the direct fire of guns, and with it the charm of the duel, given way to the concentrated fire of mechanized weapons. The outcome was a game of numbers: Whoever could cover a certain number of square meters with the greater mass of artillery fire, won. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Charm quotes by Erasmus Darwin
#134. By firm immutable immortal laws Impress'd on Nature by the GREAT FIRST CAUSE,
Say, MUSE! how rose from elemental strife
Organic forms, and kindled into life;
How Love and Sympathy with potent charm
Warm the cold heart, the lifted hand disarm;
Allure with pleasures, and alarm with pains,
And bind Society in golden chains. #Quote by Erasmus Darwin
Charm quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#135. The beauty of science hugely outranks the charms of superstition. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Charm quotes by Robert Browning
#136. Last night I saw you in my sleep:
And how your charm of face was changed!
I asked, 'Some love, some faith you keep?'
You answered, 'Faith gone, love estranged.'
Whereat I woke--- a twofold bliss:
Waking was one, but next there came
This other:"Though I felt, for this,
My heart break, I loved on the same. #Quote by Robert Browning
Charm quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#137. Let them like the Tibetans, chew the cud of their "om mane padme hum" innumerable times, or, as in Benares, count the name of the God Ram-Ram-Ram (etc. with or without charm) on their fingers; or honour Vishnu with his thousand names of invocation, Allah with his ninety-nine; or they may make use of the prayer-wheels and the rosary: the main thing is that they are settled down for a time at this work and are tolerable to look at. This kind of prayer has been invented for the benefit of the pious who have thought and elevations of their own. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Charm quotes by Robert B. Parker
#138. Susan told me on the way out," Hawk said, "how you been spreading your charm around town and now they ready to lynch your ass."
"Charm can only carry you so far," I said. #Quote by Robert B. Parker
Charm quotes by Carl Friedrich Gauss
#139. A great part of its [higher arithmetic] theories derives an additional charm from the peculiarity that important propositions, with the impress of simplicity on them, are often easily discovered by induction, and yet are of so profound a character that we cannot find the demonstrations till after many vain attempts; and even then, when we do succeed, it is often by some tedious and artificial process, while the simple methods may long remain concealed. #Quote by Carl Friedrich Gauss
Charm quotes by John Milton
#140. Sweet is the breath of morn, her rising sweet, With charm of earliest birds. #Quote by John Milton
Charm quotes by William Shakespeare
#141. Now old desire doth in his death-bed lie,
And young affection gapes to be his heir;
That fair for which love groan'd for and would die,
With tender Juliet match'd, is now not fair.
Now Romeo is beloved and loves again,
Alike betwitched by the charm of looks,
But to his foe supposed he must complain,
And she steal love's sweet bait from fearful hooks:
Being held a foe, he may not have access
To breathe such vows as lovers use to swear;
And she as much in love, her means much less
To meet her new-beloved any where:
But passion lends them power, time means, to meet
Tempering extremities with extreme sweet. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Charm quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#142. Don't embrace mediocrity; its main charm is to make you fall in love with failure. Speed off ... Excellence awaits you at the end of your journey! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Charm quotes by E.B. White
#143. Clubs, fraternities, nations - these are the beloved barriers in the way of a workable world, these will have to surrender some of their rights and some of their ribs. A 'fraternity' is the antithesis of fraternity. The first (that is, the order or organization) is predicated on the idea of exclusion; the second (that is, the abstract thing) is based on a feeling of total equality. Anyone who remembers back to his fraternity days at college recalls the enthusiasts in his group, the rabid members, both young and old, who were obsessed with the mystical charm of membership in their particular order. They were usually men who were incapable of genuine brotherhood, or at least unaware of its implications. Fraternity begins when the exclusion formula is found to be distasteful. The effect of any organization of a social and brotherly nature is to strengthen rather than diminish the lines which divide people into classes; the effects of states and nations is the same, and eventually these lines will have to be softened, these powers will have to be generalized. #Quote by E.B. White
Charm quotes by Thomas Bulfinch
#144. Thus we hope to teach mythology not as a study, but as a relaxation from study; to give our work the charm of a story-book, yet by means of it to impart a knowledge of an important branch of education. #Quote by Thomas Bulfinch
Charm quotes by Henry James
#145. In a play, certainly, the subject is of more importance than in any other work of art. Infelicity, triviality, vagueness of subject, may be outweighed in a poem, a novel, or a picture, by charm of manner, by ingenuity of execution; but in a drama the subject is of the essence of the work-it is the work. If it is feeble, the work can have no force; if it is shapeless, the work must be amorphous. #Quote by Henry James
Charm quotes by Victoria Vane
#146. Marcus stood at the mantel mirror, fussing with his lace cuffs, adjusting his cravat and openly admiring his reflection. "I'll beguile her with the full power of my persuasive charm."
"And should that fail?"
Marcus turned to his secretary with a slow, devious grin. "Why, Nick, I'd have thought it obvious. I'll just have to ruin her."
-A BREACH OF PROMISE #Quote by Victoria Vane
Charm quotes by Frank Kermode
#147. It is one of the great charms of books that they have to end. #Quote by Frank Kermode
Charm quotes by Adam Hochschild
#148. When Leopold wrote that the precise frontiers of the new state or states would be defined later, [German Chancellor] Bismarck said to an aide, His Majesty displays the pretensions and naive selfishness of an Italian who considers that his charm and good looks will enable him to get away with anything. #Quote by Adam Hochschild
Charm quotes by Paul Auster
#149. That's how it is with want. As long as you lack something you yearn for it without cease. if only I could have that one thing, you tell yourself, all my problems would be solved. But once you get it, once the object of your desires is thrust into your hands, it begins to lose its charm. Other wants assert themselves, other desires make themselves felt, and bit by bit you discover that you're right back where you started. #Quote by Paul Auster
Charm quotes by Saoirse Ronan
#150. I grew up my whole life in Ireland and obviously sound very, very Irish. I feel like it's just one of those things that just charms the socks off of people. #Quote by Saoirse Ronan
Charm quotes by Stephanie Kuehn
#151. Because blood is blood, and every family has its own force.
Its own flavor.

Charm quotes by Herman Melville
#152. These temporary apprehensions, so vague but so awful, derived a wondrous potency from the contrasting serenity of the weather, in which, beneath all its blue blandness, some thought there lurked a devilish charm, as for days and days we voyaged along, through seas so wearily, lonesomely mild, that all space, in repugnance to our vengeful errand, seemed vacating itself of life before our urn-like prow. #Quote by Herman Melville
Charm quotes by Cassandra Clare
#153. What a pretty dress," Ariadne said to Cordelia, her voice warm. Her own gown was of flattering wine-colored silk. "I believe that's the shade they call 'ashes of roses.' Very popular in Paris."
"Oh, yes," Cordelia said eagerly. She'd known so few girls growing up - just Lucie, really - so how did one impress them and charm them? It was desperately important. "I did get this dress in Paris, as a matter of fact. On Rue de la Paix. Jeanne Paquin made it herself."
She saw Lucie's eyes widen in concern. Rosamund's lips tightened. "How fortunate you are," she said coolly. "Most of us here in the poky little London Enclave rarely get to travel abroad. You must think us so dull."
"Oh," said Cordelia, realizing she had put her foot in it. "No, not at all - "
"My mother has always said Shadowhunters aren't meant to have much of an interest in fashion," said Catherine. "She says it's mundane."
"Since you've spoken of Matthew's clothes admiringly so often," said Ariadne tartly, "should we assume that rule is only for girls? #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Charm quotes by J.K. Rowling

Charm quotes by Bill Jay
#157. If there is a single factor which separates the best photographers from the wannabes it is the quantity of images which they produce. They seem to be forever shooting. I have watched many of them as they take picture after picture even when they are not photographing. [ ... ] Often these intimate images do not look as though they were taken by the same photographer. And that is their fascination and charm. #Quote by Bill Jay
Charm quotes by Charles Lamb
#158. Antiquity! thou wondrous charm, what art thou? that being nothing art everything? When thou wert, thou wert not antiquity - then thou wert nothing, but hadst a remoter antiquity, as thou calledst it, to look back to with blind veneration; thou thyself being to thyself flat, jejune, modern! What mystery lurks in this retroversion? or what half Januses are we, that cannot look forward with the same idolatry with which we for ever revert! The mighty future is as nothing, being everything! the past is everything, being nothing! #Quote by Charles Lamb
Charm quotes by Bayard Taylor

Charm quotes by William Wilberforce
#160. It makes no sense to take the name of Christian and not cling to Christ. Jesus is not some magic charm to wear like a piece of jewelry we think will give us good luck. He is the Lord. His name is to be written on our hearts in such a powerful way that it creates within us a profound experience of His peace and a heart that is filled with His praise. #Quote by William Wilberforce
Charm quotes by Mary Robertson
#161. Pat and I smiled to see a small evening bag with a short handle hooked over her left elbow. We wondered why she would carry a handbag in her own home. What would she possibly need from it?
I was longing to walk over to Her Majesty, the Queen, and tell her, mother to mother, "Your Majesty, we've known Lady Diana quite well for the past year and a half. We'd like you to know what a truly lovely young woman your son is about to marry." A sincere and uncontroversial prewedding remark. Unfortunately, this was not only the groom's mother but also Her Majesty, the Queen of England. Protocol prevented our approaching her, since we had not been personally introduced. I toyed briefly with the idea of walking up to her anyway and pretending that, as an American, I didn't know the rules. But I was afraid of a chilling rebuff and did not want to embarrass Diana, who had been kind enough to invite us. Pat did not encourage me to plunge ahead. In fact, this time he exclaimed, "Have you lost your mind?" Maybe I should have taken a chance. Too timid again!
Our next glimpse of the royal family was Prince Philip, socializing a room or two away from the queen and surrounded by attractive women. He was a bit shorter than he appears in photographs, but quite handsome with a dignified presence and a regal, controlled charm. Pat was impressed by how flawlessly Prince Philip played his role as host, speaking graciously to people in small groups, then moving smoothly on to the next group, u #Quote by Mary Robertson

Charm quotes by James E. Faust
#163. I wonder if you sisters full understand the greatness of your gifts and talents and how all of you can achieve the "highest place of honor" in the Church and in the world. One of your unique, precious, and sublime gifts is your femininity, with its natural grace, goodness, and divinity. Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos, and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love, your spirituality, delicacy, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity, and quiet strength. It is manifest differently in each girl or woman, but each of you possesses it. Femininity is part of your inner beauty.

One of your particular gifts is your feminine intuition. Do not limit yourselves. As you seek to know the will of our Heavenly Father in your life and become more spiritual, you will be far more attractive, even irresistible. You can use your smiling loveliness to bless those you love and all you meet, and spread great joy. Femininity is part of the God-given divinity within each of you. It is your incomparable power and influence to do good. You can, through your supernal gifts, bless the lives of children, women, and men. Be proud of your womanhood. Enhance it. Use it to serve others. #Quote by James E. Faust
Charm quotes by Henry James

Charm quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#165. We love a girl for very different qualities than understanding. We love her for her beauty, her youth, her mirth, her confidingness, her character, with its faults, caprices and God knows what other inexpressible charms; but we do not love her understanding. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Charm quotes by Herman Melville
#168. Woe to him whom this world charms from Gospel duty. Woe to him who seeks to pour oil upon the waters when God has brewed them into a gale. Woe to him who seeks to please rather than to appal. Woe to him whose good name is more to him than goodness. Woe to him who, in this world, courts not dishonor! Woe to him who would not be true, even though to be false were salvation. Yea, woe to him who, as the great Pilot Paul has it, while preaching to others is himself a castaway. #Quote by Herman Melville
Charm quotes by Brent Weeks
#169. All women are whores," she said. "Whether they sell their bodies or their smiles and their charm or their childbearing years and submission to a man. The world makes a woman a whore, but a woman makes her terms. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Charm quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#170. A right mind and generous affection hath more beauty and charms than all other symmetries in the world besides; and a grain of honesty and native worth is of more value than all the adventitious ornaments, estates, or preferments; for the sake of which some of the better sort so oft turn knaves. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
Charm quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#171. I took you out to dinner to warn you of charm. I warned you expressly and in great details of the Flyte family. Charm is the great English blight. It does not exist outside these damp islands. It spots and kills anything it touches. It kills love; it kills art; I greatly fear, Charles, it has killed you. Anthony Blanche to Charles #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Charm quotes by Margaret Fuller
#172. All around us lies what we neither understand nor use. Our capacities, our instincts for this our present sphere are but half developed. Let us confine ourselves to that till the lesson be learned; let us be completely natural; before we trouble ourselves with the supernatural. I never see any of these things but I long to get away and lie under a green tree and let the wind blow on me. There is marvel and charm enough in that for me. #Quote by Margaret Fuller
Charm quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#173. That which is desirable in young girls means, naturally, that which is desirable to men. Of all cultivated accomplishments the first is 'innocence.' Beauty may or may not be forthcoming; but 'innocence' is 'the chief charm of girlhood. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Charm quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#174. Simultaneously, in the most complete ambiguity, they [media] propagate the brutal charm of the terrorist act, they are themselves terrorists, insofar as they themselves march to the tune of seduction. #Quote by Jean Baudrillard
Charm quotes by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
#175. Nevertheless the passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of disgust; and music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music. #Quote by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Charm quotes by Alexander Von Humboldt
#176. What we glean from travellers' vivid descriptions has a special charm; whatever is far off and suggestive excites our imagination; such pleasures tempt us far more than anything we may daily experience in the narrow circle of sedentary life. #Quote by Alexander Von Humboldt
Charm quotes by Horace
#177. All else-valor, a good name, glory, everything in heaven and earth-is secondary to the charm of riches. #Quote by Horace
Charm quotes by Andrew Morton
#178. Meeting the Prince of Wales

I've known her [the Queen] since I was tiny so it was no big deal. No interest in Andrew and Edward--never thought about Andrew. I kept thinking, 'Look at the life they have, how awful' so I remember him coming to Althorp to stay, my husband, and the first impact was 'God, what a sad man.' He came with his Labrador. My sister was all over him like a bad rash and I thought, 'God, he must really hate that.' I kept out of the way. I remember being a fat, podgy, no make-up, unsmart lady but I made a lot of noise and he liked that and he came up to me after dinner and we had a big dance and he said: 'Will you show me the gallery?' and I was just about to show him the gallery and my sister Sarah comes up and tells me to push off and I said 'At least, let me tell you where the switches are to the gallery because you won't know where they are,' and I disappeared. And he was charm himself and when I stood next to him the next day, a 16-year old, for someone like that to show you any attention--I was just so sort of amazed. 'Why would anyone like him be interested in me?' and it was interest. That was it for about two years. Saw him off and on with Sarah and Sarah got frightfully excited about the whole thing, then she saw something different happening which I hadn't twigged on to, i.e. when he had his 30th birthday dance I was asked too.
'Why is Diana coming as well?' [my] sister asked. I said: 'Well, I don't know but I'd like to come.' 'Oh, #Quote by Andrew Morton
Charm quotes by Josie Litton
#179. You are the third bride wed for peace," Cymbra said with a smile. "And to be frank, it has not been an easy road for the two of us who went before. Yet knowing what we do now, neither Krysta nor I would ever have chosen a different path."
"How much choice did you have?"
To Rycca's surprise, Cymbra laughed. "In my case, none." She sighed in mocking languor. "I still remember Wolf's deeply romantic proposal. He told me that if I did not wed him, he would kill my brother."
"He what?"
"Oh,don't worry, he's gotten much better." She laughed again, fondly. "Much, much better.Besides, Dragon is the one who was always good with women."
Rycca could not dispute that but neither could she ignore what she had just been told.Shocked, she asked, "What did you do?"
"Do? Why,I punched him,of course. What else could I do? He went to our wedding worried that the blow still showed."
"You...punched him?" The ethereal beauty beside her had struck the fierce Wolf?
"Rycca,dear sister, something you must learn at once.Wolf and Dragon are both wonderful men but they are also overwhelming. It is part of their charm. Nontheless,with them it is always best to be firm. For that matter, the same can be said of my brother, as Krysta learned readily enough."
"She and Lord Hawk seem devoted to each other."
"As are Wold and I. That doesn't mean one should be a meek little woman rubbing feet."
"What a horrible notion! However did you think of it?"
"Oh, #Quote by Josie Litton
Charm quotes by J.D. Robb
#180. Mind the faeries," Brian said with a grin. "Christ, it's been years since I stepped into a country wood. Roarke, do you remember when we skinned those Germans in the hotel, then hid out for two days with travelers in the wood down in Wexford till the heat was off?"
"Jesus, I'm standing right here," Eve pointed out. "Cop."
"There was that girl," Brian continued, unabashed. "Ah, the sultry beauty. And no matter how I tried to charm her, she only had eyes for you."
"Again, right here. Married."
"It was long ago and far away. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Charm quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#181. Prince Andrei liked dancing, and wishing to escape as quickly as possible from the political and clever talk which everyone addressed to him, wishing to break up the circle of restraint he disliked, caused by the Emperor's presence, he danced, and had chosen Natasha because Pierre pointed her out to him and because she was the first pretty girl who caught his eye; but scarcely had he embraced that slender supple figure, and felt her stirring so close to him and smiling so near him, than the wine of her charm rose to his head, and he felt himself revived and rejuvenated when after leaving her he stood breathing deeply and watching the other dancers. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Charm quotes by James Whitcomb Riley
#182. In fact, to speak in earnest, I believe it adds a charm
To spice the good a trifle with a little dust of harm #Quote by James Whitcomb Riley
Charm quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#183. He knows he used to be able to control you with charm, affection and promises. He also remembers how well intimidation or aggression worked at other times. Now both of these tools are losing their effectiveness, so he tries to increase the voltages. He may switch erratically back and forth between the two like a doctor who cycles a patient through a range of antibiotics, trying to find the one that will get the infection under control. And the analogy is an apt one, because an abuser sees his (ex-) partner's growing strength and independence as a sickness rather than as the harbinger of health that it actually is. #Quote by Lundy Bancroft
Charm quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#184. Zeal is more often checked after long years in the same service than when novelty gives a charm to our work. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Charm quotes by Homer
#185. Then thus incensed, the Paphian queen replies: "Obey the power from whom thy glories rise: Should Venus leave thee, every charm must fly, Fade from thy cheek, and languish in thy eye. Cease to provoke me, lest I make thee more The world's aversion, than their love before; Now the bright prize for which mankind engage, Than, the sad victim, of the public rage." At this, the fairest of her sex obey'd, And #Quote by Homer
Charm quotes by M. Sukru Hanioglu
#186. A stranger visiting a new town would first face the question, Are you from Anatolia or Rumelia? Ottoman popular culture attributed sophisticated characteristics to the Rumelians, such as wisdom, charm, and gentlemanly behavior. Anatolians, by contrast, were stereotyped as courageous, honest, and straightforward. #Quote by M. Sukru Hanioglu
Charm quotes by Mark Twain
#187. The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk. #Quote by Mark Twain
Charm quotes by Kristen Ashley
#188. It was silly, but I couldn't let go of the hope that one day he'd walk in, look at me, smile and maybe pop
by my table to have a chat where I would boggle his mind with my brilliance. I'd charm him with my
manner. Then he'd ask me out on a date. At the end of which, maybe, hopefully, I'd finally be able to
touch his hair (amongst other things).
This never happened. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Charm quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#189. Woman learns how to hate in proportion as she forgets how to charm. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Charm quotes by Yukio Mishima
#190. Once I had started my solitude I realised anew that it was easy for me to become accustomed to this state and that the most effortless existence for me was in fact one in which I was not obliged to speak to anyone. My fretful attitude to life left me. Each dead day had its charm #Quote by Yukio Mishima

Charm quotes by Arzum Uzun
#192. I found the kingdom of far far away, prince charming would not be so far. #Quote by Arzum Uzun
Charm quotes by Carolyn Brown
#193. Deke met them on the porch and led the way into the house. Taller than the Dawson brothers, he was every bit as handsome with thick brown hair that he wore long enough to be sexy, hazel eyes, and broad shoulders. Women tended to flock to him like a moth to a burning candle. But taming Deke would be harder than training a Dawson cowboy to the halter. He was full of tough cowboy charm, and it would take a special woman to rope him and get him aimed toward the altar. #Quote by Carolyn Brown
Charm quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#194. What did I fear, and why? - I, to whom the night had been
a more familiar face
than that of man
I, in whom that element of hereditary superstition from which none of us is altogether free had given to solitude and darkness and silence only a more alluring interest and charm! #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Charm quotes by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
#195. A quiet woman is a firearm with a silencer. #Quote by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Charm quotes by Anne Geddes
#196. I have a deep love and respect for children and I cannot imagine photographic life without them playing a major part. I hope that through my work as a photographer, I have been able to pass on my appreciation of their beauty and charm. #Quote by Anne Geddes
Charm quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#197. The accepted and betrothed lover has lost the wildest charm of his maiden in her acceptance of him. She was heaven whilst he pursued her as a star: she cannot be heaven, if she stoops to such a one as he. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Charm quotes by Walt Whitman
#198. There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Charm quotes by Hermann Hesse
#199. Charm me. Furiously. Torment me. In detail. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Charm quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#200. They [his readers, whom he asks to be his friends] will find that I have always loved truth so passionately that I have often resorted to lying as a way of first introducing it into minds which were ignorant of its charms (Casanova, p.34, Vol 1 Preface). #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
