Charm

Famous quotes containing the word charm:

    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?
    Oliver Goldsmith (1728–1774)

    The charm of knowledge would be small indeed, were it not that there is so much shame to be overcome on the way to it.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Slavery and servility have produced no sweet-scented flower annually, to charm the senses of men, for they have no real life: they are merely a decaying and a death, offensive to all healthy nostrils. We do not complain that they live, but that they do not get buried. Let the living bury them; even they are good for manure.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
