"Hope is a dangerous thing, my friend."
"Hope is a dangerous thing, my friend, it can kill a man..."
"Hope is a good thing, maybe even the best of things. And good things never die."
If you don't recognize this quote, you need to stop reading this article and go watch The Shawshank Redemption right now. Trust me, you won't regret it. It's a beautifully told tale of redemption (go figure), friendship, and hope. Seriously, it's one of the 10 best movies ever made. Tell your dad you want to watch it, he'll be thrilled!
