Extract Straight From The Movies #2

In this post I’m gonna continued extracting quotes from movies. All of the movies were movies that i’ve watched. So this is a handpicked quotes, not something-random-but-sounds-cool quotes, although some of the quotes I’m gonna quoted here today will naturally cool 😀

Here it goes:

The Shawshank Redemption (1994):

Andy Dufresne: She was beautiful. God I loved her. I just didn’t know how to show it, that’s all. I killed her, Red. I didn’t pull the trigger, but I drove her away. And that’s why she died, because of me.

Andy Dufresne: You know 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 Dufresne: That’s the beauty of music. They can’t get that from you… Haven’t you ever felt that way about music?

I want to know how you feel. | Okay. My feelings say you’re the best. | Your feelings? Who is ”your feelings” anyway? | It’s me. My heart. | Your heart says ”Hi, Manni. She’s the one.” | Exactly. | And you say, ”Thanks for the info. Talk to you soon.” | Exactly. | And you do whatever your heart says? | Well, it doesn’t really ”say” anything. I don’t know, it just feels. | So what does it feel now? | That someone’s asking rather stupid questions. | You aren’t taking me seriously. | Lola, what’s wrong? Do you want to leave me? | I don’t know. I think I have to make a decision. |
