Mr.Shawshank Speaks..

“I could see why some of the boys
took him for snobby. He had a quiet
way about him, a walk and a talk
that just wasn’t normal around
here. He strolled. like a man in a
park without a care or worry. Like
he had on an invisible coat that
would shield him from this place. ”

“Believe what you want. These walls
are funny. First you hate ’em, then
you get used to ’em. After long
enough, you get so you depend on
’em. That’s “institutionalized.”
“That there are things in this world
not carved out of gray stone. That
there’s a small place inside of us
they can never lock away, and that
place is called hope. “
“Andy Dufresne, who crawled through
a river of shit and came out clean
on the other side. Andy Dufresne,
headed for the Pacific. “
“Sometimes it makes me sad, though,
Andy being gone. I have to remind
myself that some birds aren’t meant
to be caged, that’s all. Their
feathers are just too bright… “
“Dear Red. If you’re reading this,
you’ve gotten out. And if you’ve
come this far, maybe you’re willing
to come a little further. You
remember the name of the town,
don’t you? I could use a good man
to help me get my project on
wheels. I’ll keep an eye out for
you and the chessboard ready.

Remember, Red. Hope is a good
thing, maybe the best of things,
and no good thing ever dies. I will
be hoping that this letter finds
you, and finds you well. Your
friend. Andy. “

From ‘Good Will Hunting’

“….And if I asked you about love I’d get a sonnet, but you’ve never looked at a woman and been truly vulnerable. Known that someone could kill you with a look. That someone could rescue you from grief. That God had put an angel on Earth just for you. And you would’nt know how it felt to be her angel. To have the love be there for her forever. Through anything, through cancer. You wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting up in a hospital room for two months holding her hand and not leaving because the doctors could see in your that the term “visiting hours” didn’t apply to you. And you wouldn’t know about real loss, because that only occurs when you lose something you love more than yourself, and you’ve never dared to love anything that much. I look at you and I don’t see an intelligent confident man, I don’t see a peer, and I don’t see my equal. I see a boy…”
“…My wife’s been dead two years, Will. And when I think about her, those are the things I think about most. Little idisyncracies that only I knew about. Those made her my wife. And she had the goods on me too. Little things I do out of habit. People call these things imperfections Will. It’s just who we are. And we get to choose who we’re going to let into  our weird worlds. You’re not perfect. And let me save you the suspense, this girl you met is’nt either. The question is, whether or not you’re perfect for each other. You can know everything in the world, but the only way you’re findin’ that one out is by giving it a shot…”
“That’s what I’m saying, Will. You’ll never have that kind of relationship in  a world where you’re afraid to take the first step because all you’re seeing are the negative things that might happen ten miles down the road”
