Charm is a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question.

If there is sin against life, it consists in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings -- that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.
You cannot travel on the path until you become the path itself.
The devil has the power to assume a pleasing shape.
And oftentimes excusing of a fault doth make the fault the worse by the excuse.
Men at sometime are the masters of their fate.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves; we are underlings.
They say men are molded out of faults, and for the most, become much more the better; for being a little bad. [Measure For Measure]

If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.
Life is indeed darkness save when there is urge, and all urge is blind save when there is knowledge, and all knowledge is vain save when there is work, and all work is empty save when there is love.
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolutions.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And what is it to cease breathing but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
The end is never as satisfying as the journey. To have achieved everything but to have done so without integrity and excitement is to have achieved nothing.
Whether joy or sorrowful, the heart needs a double, because a joy shared is doubled and a pain that is shared is divided.
He who binds to himself a joy doth the winged life destroy. But he who kisses the joy as it flies lives in Eternity's sunrise.
