[To himself, holding the Everlasting Gobstopper that Charlie has left on his desk]|
WONKA: So shines a good deed in a weary world.
from The Merchant of Venice, Act V, Scene 1
by William Shakespeare [1564-1616]
That light we see is burning in my hall.
How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
[Note that David Seltzer changed the crucial word "naughty" to "weary", giving the line more relevance in the context of the story, e.g. Wonka is weary of the horrible character of most people.]http://home.att.net/~tom.brodhead/wonka.htm
