How to Throw the Best Willy Wonka Party Ever

Love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Celebrate your love of literature with this Willy Wonka party! Willy Wonka party ideas are perfect for everyone.One of the things I’ve always wanted to do is throw a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory party. I’ve always loved the Willy Wonka movie (the really old one with Gene Wilder), and in fact, I think I actually like the Willy Wonka movie better than the book (but don’t tell Roald Dahl, because apparently he hated it). To inspire myself to actually host this Willy Wonka party, I’ve put together a list of things I would love at my Willy Wonka party.

Amazon has a nifty feature in Kindle books that you can use to highlight passages. Amazon collects data about these highlighted quotes and shares them with us! These are the most popular Game of Thrones book quotes (or A Song of Ice and Fire quotes if you want to get technical) chosen by Game of Thrones Kindle readers.

Favorite Game of Thrones Book Quotes Chosen by Fans

Love the A Song of Ice and Fire series? This collection of readers favorite Game of Thrones book quotes will hit you right in the feels.“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”
“If you would take a man’s life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die.”
“Always keep your foes confused. If they are never certain who you are or what you want, they cannot know what you are like to do next. Sometimes the best way to baffle them is to make moves that have no purpose, or even seem to work against you.”
“There’s no shame in fear, my father told me. What matters is how we face it.”
“… when you know what a man wants you know who he is, and how to move him.”
“I prefer my history dead. Dead history is writ in ink, the living sort in blood.”
“In the game of thrones, even the humblest pieces can have wills of their own. Sometimes they refuse to make the moves you’ve planned for them.”
“’A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,’ said Jojen. ‘The man who never reads lives only one.’”
“Men live their lives trapped in an eternal present, between the mists of memory and the sea of shadow that is all we know of the days to come.”

British Author Quotes Taken Out of Context

I had such fun writing my last post of quotes taken out of context that today, I’m doing it again! This time, I’m taking British author quotes out of context.

Scroll down to link your post to this week’s Lit Lovers!

Are all online quotes accurate? Turns out, not so much! Take a look at some of these British author quotes taken out of context.

British Author Quotes Taken Out of Context

Take a look at how the meaning of these British author quotes change when they are taken out of context.

George Orwell, 1984

Out of Context: “A lunatic was simply a minority.”

In Context: “Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one.”

George Eliot, Middlemarch

Out of Context: “Men know best about everything.”

In Context: “And, of course men know best about everything, except what women know better.”

William Shakespeare, Hamlet

Out of Context:“Brevity is the soul of wit and tediousness.”

In Context: “Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit, And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I will be brief.”

Are all online quotes accurate? Turns out, not so much! Take a look at some of these British author quotes taken out of context.George Eliot, Middlemarch

British Author Quotes Out of Context: “Pride is not a bad thing.”

In Context: “We mortals, men and women, devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinner-time; keep back the tears and look a little pale about the lips, and in answer to inquiries say, “Oh, nothing!” Pride helps; and pride is not a bad thing when it only urges us to hide our hurts— not to hurt others.”

Charles Dickens, Master Humphrey’s Clock

Out of Context: “Never close your lips to those whom you have already opened your heart.”

In Context: “To conceal anything from those to whom I am attached, is not in my nature. I can never close my lips where I have opened my heart.

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Out of Context: “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” (this one comes from the movie, but is often attributed as a book quote).

In Context: “He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. ‘It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,’ he used to say. ‘You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

A.A. Miline, Winnie the Pooh

British Author Quotes Out of Context: “I used to believe in forever, but forever’s too good to be true.”

In Context: There is no reference for this. Winnie the Pooh, as I uncovered last time, is one of the most wrongfully-quoted stories in the entire history of books (maybe other than religious texts). This line actually comes from Winnie The Pooh’s Most Grand Adventure. You can hear the miss-attributed line at 1:27.
