“That’s the beauty of music. They can’t get that from you…haven’t you ever felt that way about music?”

“I played a mean harmonica as a younger man. Lost interest in it though. Didn’t make much sense in here.”

“Here’s where it makes the most sense. You need it so you don’t forget.'”

“Forget?”

“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.”

“What’re you talking about?”

“Hope.”

“Hope? Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. It’s got no use on the inside. You’d better get used to that idea.”

–Andy and Red, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, from Different Seasons, Stephen King
