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

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

Sweet sleep be with us, one and all!And if upon its stillness fallThe visions of a busy brain,We'll have our pleasure o'er again,To warm the heart, to Charm the sight,Gay dreams to all! good night, good night.joanna baillie
How unjust life is, to make physical Charm so immediately apparent or absent, when one can get away with vices untold for ever.Margaret Drabble
Go! you may call it madness, folly;You shall not chase my gloom away!There 's such a Charm in melancholyI would not if I could be gay.samuel rogers
Myriads of daisies have shone forth in flower Near the lark's nest, and in their natural hour Have passed away; less happy than the one That by the unwilling ploughshare died to prove The tender Charm of poetry and love.william wordsworth
The public has lost the habit of movie-going because the cinema no longer possesses the Charm, the hypnotic charisma, the authority it once commanded. The image it once held for us all that of a dream we dreamt with our eyes open has disappeared. Is it still possible that one thousand people might group together in the dark and experience the dream that a single individual has directed?Federico Fellini
A phrase much used in political circles in this country is "playing into the hands of".:; It is a sort of Charm or incantation to silence uncomfortable truths.:; When you are told that by saying this, that or the other you are "playing into the hands of" some sinister enemy, you know that it is your duty to shut up immediately.george orwell
Whoever has ever attempted to translate poetry knows how very difficult it is, both to transmit adequately the message and to recreate the rhyme and rhyme scheme. De Zayas has been remarkably successful in tackling both difficulties. Throughout the book we sense his easy recreation of the mood, the Charm, the musicality of the language, and the meter of Rilke’s poems.
You may seek it with thimbles and seek it with care; You may hunt it with forks and hope; You may threaten its life with a railway-share; You may Charm it with smiles and soap.
Thou that singest wheat and woodland, tilth and vineyard, hive and horse and herd; All the Charm of all the Muses often flowering in a lonely word.
