The Shawshank Redemption Movie Quotes

Buzz Lines: What's Your Favorite Quote From The Shawshank Redemption?

A film about imprisoned men may sound incredibly depressing, but 1994's The Shawshank Redemption actually manages to feel uplifting despite its bleak setting. That's mostly due to prisoners men Andy (Tim Robbins) and Red (Morgan Freeman), who form a fast friendship and say some pretty profound things from behind bars. If you're a Shawshank fan, make sure to weigh in with some of your favorite lines after checking out a few of mine!

  • "Get busy living, or get busy dying." — Red
  • "Lord, it’s a miracle! A man up and vanished like a fart in the wind." — Warden
  • "That's where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory." — Andy

This is one of my favorite movies, so I have a couple here: "Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." -- Andy "The funny thing is, on the outside, I was an honest man, straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook." -- Andy "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." -- Red Heywood: [sorting through books] "The Count of Monte Crisco" Floyd: That's Cristo, you dumb shit. Heywood: By Alexandree... Dum-ass. Dumbass? [Red chuckles.] Andy: Dumbass? [Heywood shows him the book.] Dumas. You know what that's about? Heywood: [confused] Uuh-uh. Andy: You'll like it. It's about a prison break. Red: Well, we ought to file that under Educational too. Oughtn't we?

I love this one: I’m telling you, these walls are funny. First you hate them. Then you get used to them. Enough time passes, it gets so you depend on them. That’s institutionalized.
