Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can Set You free

Beautiful lines about HOPE from the film The Shawshank Redemption

Andy: There the world that aren't made out of stone. There’s something......inside......that they can't get to......that they can't touch. That's yours.
Red: What are you talking about?
Andy: Hope.
Red: Hope??
Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing.
Hope can drive a man insane. It’s got no use on the inside.
Red: Hope is a good thing...Maybe the best of things.
And no good thing ever dies.
Red: I hope I can make it across the border.
I hope to see my friend and shake his hand.
I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams.
I hope….


  1. Ah, Red and the lead actor have this conversation la... Hope is such a wonderful word. Cheers :)

  2. Yup.. Also the Red's ( Morgan Freeman) narration is beautiful...
