The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

'What're you talking about?' 'Hope'

Andy Dufresne [Tim Robbins]: That's the beauty of music. They can't get that from you... Haven't you ever felt that way about music?

Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding [Morgan Freeman]: I played a mean harmonica as a younger man. Lost interest in it though. Didn't make much sense in here.

Andy Dufresne: Here's where it makes the most sense. You need it so you don't forget.

Red: Forget?

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.


  1. One of the best Movies of all time."He crawled through a river of shit and came out clean."

  2. Too true, Kshitij. Andy Dufresne teaches you how to survive under the most trying circumstances and come out triumphant. He also says never lose hope, and that's all we really have, don't we? Hope.
