Yesterday brought sad news that Gene Wilder died at the age of 83. We may have lost a tremendous comedic actor, but in less than 24 hours, we gained some moving tributes to the man who made us smile by his work on the big screen. Countless tweets, posts and articles highlighted his famous quotes, many of which are very uplifting.
“If you want to view paradise, simply look around & view it. Anything you want to, do it. Want to change the world? There’s nothing to it.”

I have not seen many of Wilder’s movies, but one definitely stands out…Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Three years ago, I wrote two posts about the movie and the many things we can learn (both intentionally and unintentionally).
Today felt like a good time to share those posts. Enjoy…
