Louisa May Alcott
Charm is the quality in others, that makes us more satisfied with ourselves.
Henri Frederic Amiel

Pliny the Elder
When lovely woman stoops to folly, and finds too late that men betray, what charm can soothe her melancholy, what art can wash her guilt away?
'Charm' - which means the power to effect work without employing brute force - is indispensable to women. Charm is a woman's strength just as strength is a man's charm.

Reservoir Dogs is a small film, and part of its charm was that it was a small film. I'd probably make it for $3 million now so I'd have more breathing room.
Charming people live up to the very edge of their charm, and behave as outrageously as the world lets them.
Logan Pearsall Smith
There are popular celebrities, there are unpopular celebrities and then there are the walking dead. You know the walking dead when you see them: they look like Mel Gibson, still striving for drunken charm in an L.A.

To be a Bond girl you need courage, charm, determination and feistiness.

Early in the morning, I fell in love with the girl that later on became my wife. At that time, we were so naive. I wanted to charm her, so I read her Capital by Marx. I thought somehow she would be convinced by the strength of his criticism about capital.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
