Willy Wonka Quotes to Awaken Your Imagination

Enter ‘a world of pure imagination’ with these classic Willy Wonka quotes.

When Roald Dahl published Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in 1964, he probably didn’t know that his children’s novel about the owner of a candy empire would become a story cherished by families for generations. That, however, was set in stone when Gene Wilder portrayed the eccentric character in the 1971 film adaptation. 

The classic film took viewers into a chocolate fantasyland paradise where everything you see is edible (or eatable) – though you shouldn’t eat the people. 

Willy Wonka may have been the owner of a very prestigious candy factory, but he had no problem dishing out sass to misbehaving children and their parents. Wilder’s delivery of Wonka’s sarcastic lines is a large part of what makes this classic film so quotable.
