attraction

To know how to suggest is the great art of teaching. To attain it we must be able to guess what will interest; we must learn to read the childish soul as we might a piece of music. Then, by simply changing the key, we keep up the attraction and vary the song.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The satirist is prevented by repulsion from gaining a better knowledge of the world he is attracted to, yet he is forced by attraction to concern himself with the world that repels him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If, Sir, I possessed the power of conveying unlimited sexual attraction through the potency of my voice, I would not be reduced to accepting a miserable pittance from the BBC for interviewing a faded female in a damp basement.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

War is thus divine in itself, since it is a law of the world. War is divine through its consequences of a supernatural nature which are as much general as particular. War is divine in the mysterious glory that surrounds it and in the no less inexplicable attraction that draws us to it. War is divine by the manner in which it breaks out.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Law of Attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the nature of your thought life. Your environment and financial condition are the perfect reflection of your habitual thinking. Thought rules the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The great attraction of fashion is that it diverted attention from the insoluble problems of beauty and provided an easy way -- which money could buy... to a simply stated, easily reproduced ideal of beauty, however temporary that ideal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I'm an avid boxing fan, so that was an attraction as well. And to work with Meg Ryan, Charles Dutton... and I just thought the story was great.More [05/24/2006 12:05:00]
I got in athletics, which gave me self-esteem and made me feel like I had a place in the world; that was the initial attraction with acting for me.More [10/30/2006 12:10:00]
Yes, the companionship is amazing. You know, you can get that physical attraction that happens is great, but then there's an awful lot of time and the rest of the day that you have to fill.More [11/12/2006 12:11:00]

Stifler: Yes, the force is strong in that one.More [05/03/2007 12:05:00]
Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment. Such attraction fades quickly - it cannot compete in the market of leisure pursuits, incorporating as it increasingly does various forms of religious titillation.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]
John Hammond: You know the first attraction I ever built when I came down south from Scotland? Was a Flea Circus, Petticoat Lane. Really quite wonderful. We had a wee trapeze, a roundabout - - a merry-go - - what you call it? A carousel - - and a seesaw. They all moved, motorized of course, but people would swear they could see the fleas. "I see the fleas, mummy! Can't you see the fleas?" Clown fleas, high wire fleas, fleas on parade... But with this place, I - - I wanted to give them something real, something that wasn't an illusion, something they could see and touch. An aim devoid of merit.More [05/17/2008 12:05:00]

In England, the profession of the law is that which seems to hold out the strongest attraction to talent, from the circumstance, that in it ability, coupled with exertion, even though unaided by patronage, cannot fail of obtaining reward.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]
Dr. Fred Richmond:
Like I said... the mother... Now to understand it the way I understood it, hearing it from the mother... that is, from the mother half of Norman's mind... you have to go back ten years, to the time when Norman murdered his mother and her lover. Now he was already dangerously disturbed, had been ever since his father died. His mother was a clinging, demanding woman, and for years the two of them lived as if there was no one else in the world. Then she met a man... and it seemed to Norman that she 'threw him over' for this man. Now that pushed him over the line and he killed 'em both. Matricide is probably the most unbearable crime of all... most unbearable to the son who commits it. So he had to erase the crime, at least in his own mind. He stole her corpse. A weighted coffin was buried. He hid the body in the fruit cellar. Even treated it to keep it as well as it would keep. And that still wasn't enough. She was there! But she was a corpse. So he began to think and speak for her, give her half his time, so to speak. At times he could be both personalities, carry on conversations. At other times, the mother half took over completely. Now he was never all Norman, but he was often only mother. And because he was so pathologically jealous of her, he assumed that she was jealous of him. Therefore, if he felt a strong attraction to any other woman, the mother side of him would go wild.


[Points finger at Lila Crane]



Dr. Fred Richmond:
When he met your sister, he was touched by her... aroused by her. He wanted her. That set off the 'jealous mother' and 'mother killed the girl'! Now after the murder, Norman returned as if from a deep sleep. And like a dutiful son, covered up all traces of the crime he was convinced his mother had committed!

Alexis Davis Cassadine:
The issue in question here is Faith's innocence or guilt, not my romantic life.



Ric Lansing:
Well, if that's what you can call it. You seem to express attraction like some sort of 9-year-old school girl, picking fights and throwing insults around. What happens when you reach your crescendo? Do you punch the object of your affection in the arm?



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
Clearly, you're defensive about your impotence in the court room.



Ric Lansing:
Oh.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
Otherwise, you wouldn't be overcompensating...



Ric Lansing:
I see.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
By making personal attacks on me.



Ric Lansing:
Here come the insults, right on cue.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
That's right.



Ric Lansing:
Alexis, if you want to ask me out for a drink, why don't you just come right out like a big girl and ask me instead of resorting to school-yard tactics?



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
I would rather die of thirst than ever have a drink with you.

What color was her hair?



Trapper John:
Black, shiny. Shiny black hair.



Duke Forrest:
Black. You like black, huh? I'm kinda partial to blondes myself.



Hawkeye Pierce:
I knew it. I knew you had a - - had an attraction for Hotlips Houlihan.



Trapper John:
Hear, hear.



Duke Forrest:
Go to Hell, Captain Pierce. You know I damn near puke every time I look at her. 'Sides, I'll bet she's not a real blond.



Hawkeye Pierce:
How dare you say that about an officer of the United States Army, sir.



Duke Forrest:
I'll not only say it, but I'll back it with twenty bucks, how's that?



Hawkeye Pierce:
You have yourself a bet, sir.


[to Trapper]



Hawkeye Pierce:
You're my witness.



Trapper John:
I'll be a witness, but who's going to be the poor schmuck who finds out?



Duke Forrest:
We... We gotta all see it together. Somehow.

Linda:
I feel some sort of a mystical attraction for Van Gogh. Why is that?



Allan:
I don't know. I just know he was a great painter and he cut off an ear for a girl that he loved.



Linda:
That's the kind of thing you would do for a girl.



Allan:
I'd really have to like her a lot.

And men?



Woof:
What do you mean...?



Prison Psychiatrist:
You have any sexual attraction towards men?



Woof:
You mean if I'm a homosexual or something like that?



Prison Psychiatrist:
Yeah.



Woof:
Well, I wouldn't kick Mick Jagger out of my bed, but uh, I'm not a homosexual, no.

Kelly:
Remember, attraction is a three-way street. Or is it a one-way tunnel? Hmm, in any case, I do know it's a four-lane highway, but it takes two to use the car-pool lane. I guess what I'm trying to say is, what the younger generation has learned is that there's nothing for us to watch on CBS, and you've got to be yourself. A man has to love you for you, not some costume. He's gotta love who you are.

Lois Lane:
[to Clark] All right, maybe, somewhere very deep inside me is some eensy-weensy, microcosmic - although highly unlikely - possibility that I feel some sort of unmotivated, completely unrealistic attraction to you.

Well, Potsy's a nice boy, dear. Why shouldn't you like him?

We heard you the first time, son, you've got a homosexual attraction to Potsy.

Phyllis:
I wish I was dead, Jack!



Jack Maitland:
I once thought I'd gas myself but I hadn't a shilling for the meter.



Phyllis:
I've behaved abominable, absolutely abominable, to the Major. I can't go through with it... What you said about my marrying him to get away from here was perfectly true. I pretended to myself that it wasn't. After you said that, I couldn't pretend any longer. And then he tried to kiss me... It was horrible!



Jack Maitland:
I can well believe it. Kissed by Major Luddington? Dear me, no!



Phyllis:
Jack, what shall I do?



Jack Maitland:
I believe a glass of water with a dash of ENO's fruit salts and some...



Phyllis:
Jack, take me away from here! I'm not asking you to marry me, just let me live with you. Surely, if you loved me once, you could bear to have me with you now.



Jack Maitland:
You may be the same as you were four years ago but I am different. The difference is roughly represented by not having your name in the programme and having it in lights outside the theatre. When I needed you, you wouldn't have me. Now I DON'T need you. I find my work sufficient.



Phyllis:
I can't humble myself any further! If you find me boring you might at least have the decency to try and conceal it!



Jack Maitland:
I should be more impressed by all this if you hadn't made it perfectly plain that my attraction for you consists in my being a possible mean of removing you from the tedium of Betworthy.



Phyllis:
Oh, go on hit me! I'm too tired of it all to hit back. Anyhow, none of you'll be bothered with me for much longer.



Jack Maitland:
People who talk about suicide never commit it. A person who means business just pulls out the gun and presses the trigger.

I can't see the attraction of standing ankle deep in mud, trying to catch a fish too stupid to come any where near us.

I hope I'm not a tourist attraction - I'm sure that they come here really because St. Andrews is just amazing, a beautiful place.More [03/30/2010 12:03:00]
When you think about it, we actors are kind of prostitutes. We get paid to feign attraction and love. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone, doing things people in a normal monogamous relationship would never do with anyone who's not their partner. It's really kind of gross.More [07/08/2011 01:07:27]

Leo is a total gentleman, but when it comes to women, he just gets, well, bored. He's a very bright guy and so far, with the exception of maybe [ex-girlfriends] Bar [Rafaeli] and Giselle [Bundchen], he often finds he loses interest pretty quickly. You can only keep interested because of the sexual attraction for so long.More [11/11/2012 09:11:08]

I think that obviously, there is a perverse attraction to a fundamentally changed world or the end of the world. There is a death wish, a perverse death wish. Not just for ourselves, not just for the movie 'Death Wish,' but for the end of all human life.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I think romance is friendship and attraction sort of meeting together and that does influence what I'm writing a lot. I try to establish the attraction, obviously, but I also think it's important to show the characters having actual conversations about things other than their feelings for each other - and to develop their friendship on the page.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Marriage of attraction is a gamble anyway, so you might as well marry into a family that is similar to your own, and make that much less of an adjustment. But the 'love marriage', as it is called, is equally common in India now. But it would be interesting to do a comparison of what would work better. Marriage is hard work, and it is a gamble.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
