Line(s) of the Day #TheShawshankRedemption

Shawshank Redemption

(narrating) I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a grey place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.

Red (Morgan Freeman) in The Shawshank Redemption (1994), adapted from a novella by Stephen King.

  1. When Stephen King is good he’s very very good, but when he’s bad he’s horrid. Says mother goose and I agree! I love this movie. I recently read 11/22/63 and it’s incredible. I really enjoyed it. Have you read that one?
