Quotes from Wilder’s personal life and films:

“I'm not so funny. Gilda [Gilda Radner] was funny. I'm funny on camera sometimes. In life, once in a while. Once in a while. But she was funny. She spent more time worrying about being liked than anything else.”

“I never thought of it as God. I didn't know what to call it. I don't believe in devils, but demons I do because everyone at one time or another has some kind of a demon, even if you call it by another name, that drives them.”

“So my idea of neurotic is spending too much time trying to correct a wrong. When I feel that I'm doing that, then I snap out of it.”

“If I can make my wife laugh, I know I'm on the right track.”

“It's all there, black and white, clear as crystal! You stole fizzy lifting drinks! You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir!” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)

“Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)

“Come with me and you'll be, in a world of pure imagination, take a look and you'll see, into your imagination.” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)

“If you're not gonna tell the truth, then why start talking?”

“The suspense is terrible. I hope it'll last.” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)

“Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)

“What did you expect? Welcome, sonny? Make yourself at home? Marry my daughter? You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons.” (“Blazing Saddles”)

“If the good lord intended us to walk, he never would’ve invented roller skates.” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)

“But Charlie, don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted… He lived happily ever after.” (“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory”)​
