    Andy Dufresne is DaveinDiego. long rockstar hair, teaching the brothers, persecuted by the man, always on the right side of the argument. good for you bro.



    Andy Dufresne: That's the beauty of music. They can't get that from you... Haven't you ever felt that way about music?
    Red: I played a mean harmonica as a younger man. Lost interest in it though. Didn't make much sense in here.
    Andy Dufresne: Here's where it makes the most sense. You need it so you don't forget.
    Red: Forget?
    Andy Dufresne: 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.
    Red: What're you talking about?
    Andy Dufresne: Hope.

    when Andy locks himself in the office and plays classical music for the inmates, i got misty.

    Hey freds yo.

    I agree with the op btw. No one can see a mans soul, some folks think they can though, and they seem to always have negative thoughts.

    I'm about positiveness myself.

    In 1966, Andy Dufresne escaped from Shawshank prison. All they found of him was a muddy set of prison clothes, a bar of soap, and an old rock hammer, damn near worn down to the nub. I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to tunnel through the wall with it. Old Andy did it in less than twenty. Oh, Andy loved geology. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature. An ice age here, million years of mountain building there. Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes really, pressure, and time. That, and a big goddamn poster. Like I said, in prison a man will do most anything to keep his mind occupied. Turns out Andy's favorite hobby was totin' his wall out into the exercise yard, a handful at a time. I guess after Tommy was killed, Andy decided he'd been here just about long enough. Andy did like he was told, buffed those shoes to a high mirror shine. The guards simply didn't notice. Neither did I... I mean, seriously, how often do you really look at a mans shoes? Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness I can't even imagine, or maybe I just don't want to. Five hundred yards... that's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile.

    I only watched that movie like one time, but if "Andy" is about positivity, he sounds like my kinda guy.
