Jenny Holzer
I did meet Sen. Robert Kennedy, and it taught me something about political charisma.

Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence. The key with any gift is in the way that you use it. It doesn’t define you as a person. Rather, it’s an asset to be used judiciously and with an understanding of how it is just a small part of who you are.

I’m a dirty, filthy animal and I’m a dirty comedian, but I got a lot of charisma and charm.
Ralphie May
We can find athletes. The biggest challenge is personality. It’s finding charisma. In most sports, they tell you to turn down the personality. Look like everyone else on the team. It’s the team; it’s not you. In this, it’s the opposite. It’s you, not the team. We want you to become the big star.
Triple H

Paulo Coelho
I love to work. It fascinates me. And I love seeing who’s coming up, who’s got the charisma to last, who’s got the intelligence to move on to other things. I’m so glad now that I’m stuck behind the piano, because when you’re getting older it’s very hard to waddle around the stage.
Elton John
A panel at a beautiful annual literary festival in Brazil, held in the almost Utopian coastal town of Parati, found me matched with Fernando Gabeira. This comparison reduced my own limited charisma value to something like zero: Gabeira has excelled at every cultural activity in Brazil.
Christopher Hitchens
If Chevy Chase had not been an actor, he might have been a very popular guy in advertising or whatever field he would have gone into, because of his charisma.

Jim Ross
Pentagon not only has the untrainable ‘It’ factor but also the rare ability to adapt and succeed wherever he competes.

Kenny Omega
The extravagant and ostentatious lifestyles that pass for charisma in a time when almost anybody talks about charisma but if you think about it there’s precious little to be seen.

Gary Vaynerchuk
If your wife briefly corrects someone with “Actually, I’m bisexual” during conversation, it hardly sounds like attempting to remain an object of desire to me.

Mallory Ortberg
I absolutely love working with David Boreanaz, and Charisma Carpenter I completely adore – she teaches me to dance.

In ‘ABCD1,’ it was only me. The character I play has his own charisma. But In ‘ABCD2,’ the film has gotten bigger with stars like Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Dhawan teaming up with me. The story is also completely different, so viewers can expect something totally new.
Prabhu Deva
There’s a lot of false prophets around and that’s the trouble.

People want a leader. And there will be more and more of them.
Bob Dylan
Everyone says Francois Mitterrand had huge charisma. But before he was president they used to call him badly dressed, old, archaic and say he knew nothing about the economy… until the day he was elected. It’s called universal suffrage. When you’re elected, you become the person that embodies France.
Francois Hollande
People say I’m charming, but I’m uneasy with that word. Quentin Crisp said: ‘Charisma is the ability to influence without logic,’ which is terrifying.
Joe Lycett
I would like to work with my ideal type, Song Hye Kyo sunbae. Although she has an elegant and classic style, her charisma is also strong, and her acting talent is outstanding. If we act together, I think I could learn a lot from her. But I’d probably be nervous a lot of times.
Lee Min-ho
Helen Mirren is, I think, one of the fascinating actresses. Period. She captivates people and has tremendous power and charisma because she has never cashed in on being an exquisite beauty, even though I think she is. I can’t say I’m anything like her, but I hope something similar will happen with me.
Holly Hunter
Charisma’s good every night. Something special is always about to happen. You’ve got to believe it.
Jim Thome

As shallow as it may be, better-looking people have been shown in various studies to have higher self-esteem and more charisma, are considered more trustworthy and are better negotiators.
Andrew Ross Sorkin
First of all, ‘Sarkar’ is not an underworld film. It’s about a man at the head of a feudal set-up in the middle of a cosmopolitan city, where he almost runs a parallel government largely due to his personal charisma. And the film is about his friends and enemies and his family.
Ram Gopal Varma
Ronald Reagan had a kind of shallow movie-star charisma – a combination of makeup and the skill of a good actor – but it wasn’t the real thing, and was something that he could turn off when the cameras weren’t running.

In the performer’s body, you don’t care how you look. It doesn’t matter if you’re old, fat, beautiful, or ugly. It doesn’t change anything. The only thing is your charisma and how you express your idea.
Marina Abramovic
I don’t have a steady relationship. That’s something that women in politics deal with. For some reason, men in politics seem to have a larger charisma, and women drop around their feet. I haven’t noticed that so much for me.
Lara Giddings
For example, a man who might not have enormous charisma, who could be president 40 years ago, and who was a deserving president, I don’t know that George Washington would be a president today, I don’t know that Abe Lincoln would, I don’t know that Roosevelt would.
Sydney Pollack
A great conductor possesses that certain charisma and talent that demand the ears and the attention of an audience. I can’t tell you how that happens, but I’m sure it has an inner basis that is never learned.

Peter Berg
With realistic and deglamourised roles and live sound, the charisma of a star is not enough. Can you be many different people?
Rajiv Menon
Jeanne Moreau, Lauren Bacall, they had this unconventional beauty, this amazing charisma.
Josephine de La Baume
Adam Clayton Powell Jr. was a very savvy character. His drinking and carousing, his charisma and intelligence… the things he did in Congress. He passed for white, then became a black advocate.
Ron Cephas Jones
A good villain exudes charisma and power. He has principles, though; that just gives him a level of dimension. It makes him seem to be a bit unpredictable, because he’s usually deemed as some type of evil, ruthless person, and then he shows you his principles, and you don’t know what to think of it.
Pusha T
The three most charismatic leaders in this century inflicted more suffering on the human race than almost any trio in history: Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. What matters is not the leader’s charisma. What matters is the leader’s mission.

Tenzin Palmo
Charisma is not so much getting people to like you as getting people to like themselves when you’re around.

Charm is an intangible. Chutzpah, charm, charisma, that kind of thing, you can’t buy it. You either have it or you don’t.
Colm Feore
Not many people do what Jameis Winston did: first year as a starter winning a national championship, only one loss in his two years as a starter. He’s got great charisma. He’s polarizing for some people, but he’s a rare talent.
Jon Gruden
If the company depends entirely on you – your creativity, ingenuity, inspiration, salesmanship or charisma – nobody will want to buy it. The risk and the dependency are too great.

Jim Rohn
Good actors aren’t enough. You need charisma. Can you imagine ‘Casablanca’ without Bogart and Bergman?
Sydney Pollack
Too many people are confusing charisma with autocrat, fat cat. So I think we have to be a little more sophisticated when we hold up or tear down these stereotypes. Whether we call it charisma or not, a leader cannot be self-effacing to the point of being wimpy.
Noel Tichy
There isn’t a single player I would pay to watch. A great entertainer needs to have charisma.
George Best
Leadership is not about having the charisma or speaking inspirational words, but about leading with example.
Zainab Salbi
The real goal of a spiritual tradition should not be ascent, but openness, vulnerability, and this does not require great experiences but, on the contrary, very ordinary ones. Charisma is easy; presence, self-remembering, is terribly difficult, and where the real work lies.
Morris Berman
Sir Alex Ferguson is the most impressive person I’ve met in terms of charisma and achievement.

Jane Birkin
God has blessed me with a certain amount of presence and a certain amount of charisma.
Ving Rhames
I’m a believer that charisma makes a huge difference in people’s decisions to follow you. However, it’s not just that you say it well, but it’s that you know it well. It helps if you can say it well enough that people want to follow you. Charisma isn’t required, but it makes a big difference.
Don Yaeger
I have no natural charisma or personality, really.
Daniel Bryan
I do like British guys. If I had to pick one it would be Ewan McGregor. I met him once and he was gorgeous even if he is a little short. He has the most amazing charisma.
Eva Longoria
Seldom do we experience the charisma and character of a dynamic personality such as Lou Holtz, the very successful former football coach of Notre Dame.

Carl Pohlad
Charisma on stage is not necessarily evidence of the Holy Spirit.

Jon Jones
