Famous movie The Shawshank Redemption quotes,he Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Director: Frank Darabont,Stars: Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton
Andy Dufresne: Get busy living, or get busy dying.
Red: Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.
Andy Dufresne: Forget that… there are places in this world that aren't made out of stone. That there's something inside… that they can't get to, that they can't touch. That's yours.
Red: What're you talking about?
Andy Dufresne: Hope.
"Same old shit. Different day."
Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid.
That's where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory.
Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
Red: [narrating] Andy Dufresne – who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side.
Red: There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret. Not because I'm in here, because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try to talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone, and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bullshit word. So you go on and stamp your form, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don't give a shit.
Red: [narrating] Sometimes it makes me sad, though… Andy being gone. I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend.
