There's a difference between beauty and charm. A beautiful woman is one I notice. A charming woman is one who notices me. - John Erskine

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy: They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust

I called the devil, and he came, And with wonder his form did I closely scan; He is not ugly, and is not lame, But really a handsome and charming man. A man in the prime of life is the devil, Obliging, a man of the world, and civil; A diplomatist too, well skilled in debate, He talks quite glibly of church and state. - Heinrich Heine

In dress, habits, manners, provincialism, routine and narrowness, he acquired that charming insolence, that irritating completeness, that sophisticated crassness, that overbalanced poise that makes the Manhattan gentleman so delightfully small in his greatness.

Hither the heroes and nymphs resort, To taste awhile the pleasures of a court; In various talk thin-structive hours they past, Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last; One speaks the glory of the British Queen, And one describes a charming Indian screen, A third interprets motions, looks and eyes; At every word a reputation dies. - Alexander Pope
