I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.

“You hang onto your pain like it means something, like it’s worth something.  Well let me tell you, it’s not worth shit.  Let it go.  Infinite possibilities and all he can do is whine.”

“Well, what am I supposed to do?”

“What do you think?  You can do anything, you lucky bastard, you’re alive!  What’s a little pain compared to that?”

“It can’t be so simple.”

“What if it is?”

I have no idea to this day…

Category : Quotes

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 gray 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.
