A Little Nonsense Now and Then is Relished by The Wisest of Men

I am a big fan of Gene Wilder's sarcasm in his portrayal of Willy Wonka in the musical classic "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", as you can see by the title of this post.  I love the end scene where they fly out of the building through the glass elevator and travel over the whole city. The element of the journey of your dreams combined with the song aspect is a great combination. I have often felt that life should be set to a soundtrack. 

As Mr. Wonka quoted:

"We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems."
