Doused in an appeasing pink, Jaipur has, over the years, come to don the title of India’s “Pink City.” Rich in its historical heritage, every corner of Jaipur holds an interesting antidote and touch of old-world Charm.

Round and round the circle Completing the Charm So the knot be unknotted The cross be uncrossed The crooked be made straight And the curse be ended.
The passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing 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.wolfgang amadeus mozart
Charm ache with air, and agony with words.

The imitator dooms himself to hopeless mediocrity. The inventor did it because it was natural to him, and so in him it has a Charm. In the imitator something else is natural, and he bereaves himself of his own beauty, to come short of another man's.ralph waldo emerson
'Tis impious pleasure to delight in harm.And beauty should be kind, as well as Charm.granville, george, 1st baron lansdowne
Duluth! The word fell upon my ear with a peculiar and indescribable Charm, like the gentle murmur of a low fountain stealing forth in the midst of roses, or the soft sweet accent of an angel’s whisper in the bright, joyous dream of sleeping innocence. ’T was the name for which my soul had panted for years, as the hart panteth for the water-brooks.j(ames) proctor knott
What is Charm, it is not a moral quality.. it is not intellectual for no man by much thinking is able to add a grain of it to his personality. One either has it or has it not, it cannot be acquired or even cultivated. It is not physical even.. it seems to be added to the human personality, an aura, a glow, the gold dust upon a butterfly's wing, the bloom upon a peach.flora thompson
Hast thou a Charm to stay the morning-star In his steep course? So long he seems to pause On thy bald awful head, ? sovran Blanc!Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Only in the theatre was it possible to see the performers and to be warmed by their personal Charm, to respond to their efforts and to feel their response to the applause and appreciative laughter of the audience. It had an intimate quality; audience and actors conspired to make a little oasis of happiness and mirth within the walls of the theatre. Try as we will, we cannot be intimate with a shadow on a screen, nor a voice from a box.Robertson Davies
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.carl jung
Man could direct his ways by plain reason, and support his life by tasteless food; but God has given us wit, and flavour, and brightness, and laughter, and perfumers, to enliven the days of man's pilgrimage, and to "Charm his pained steps over the burning marle."sydney smith
Auspicious Hope! in thy sweet garden grow Wreaths for each toil, a Charm for every woe.thomas campbell
I have been here a fortnight and I think I shall be here fifteen or twenty days longer, although I do not very much like the place, for this puddling in a tub continually is no Charm to me.
An object in possession seldom retains the same Charm that it had in pursuit.pliny the younger
Every failure is a step to success. Every detection of what is false directs us towards what is true: every trial exhausts some tempting form of error. Not only so; but scarcely any attempt is entirely a failure; scarcely any theory, the result of steady thought, is altogether false; no tempting form of Error is without some latent Charm derived from Truth.william whewell
'Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble, there 's no place like home; A Charm from the skies seems to hallow us there, Which sought through the world is ne'er met with elsewhere.john howard payne
One is struck by the beauty and Charm of the temple architecture - harmonious conglomeration of both Kerala and Tamil styles of architecture.
Sweet is the breath of morn, her rising sweet, With Charm of earliest birds.john milton
Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a Charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.
