Saturday's Movie Moment: The Shawshank Redemption: Hope




I hope...you remain mindful of the good things that keep your dreams, wishes, and plans alive- and live everyday with the excited spirit and open heart of a child...

I adored so many scenes in this movie, but now I'm certain this is my favorite one.


I hope you've enjoyed this Saturday's favorite movie moment.

Have a happy and fun week-end~ Cheers~

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I'm certain I've seen Shawshank Redemption at least 20 times.

Mushy said...

A very nice interlude for my wonderful lazy Saturday afternoon.

I hope yours is as nice.

Thanks.

Another great choice!

Ann said...

Misty Dawn, I think we've about tied each other...I wish Stephen King would write more novels like this instead of horror.

Obviously, his scary novels are fantastic too, but I'm too impressionable to read or watch the movies.

Anyway, I'm glad I picked a movie you like my friend. Happy Saturday and have a great week-end~ :))

Ooops ... blogger is acting strange with me again today. If this is a double comment, that's why! :-)
This is one of my fav. movies too. A film that can give you that happy, "there is always hope" feeling is usually going to be in my BEST list!
Hope you are doing well my friend, and the advice to "live everyday with the excited spirit and open heart of a child" is definitely one to live by. Excellent!

This is definitely in my top ten, I watched it for the umpteenth time last week :)

Have you watched The Green Mile? I loved the movie but liked the book that little bit more :)

Ann said...

Claire, Yes, I've seen the Green Mile and adored it, but I haven't read the book.

However, now that you have recommended it, I need to remind myself to get it. I should have known all of his books are better than the movies. His wife is a good writer too.

I read one of hers that was real good, Pearl is the title. Actually, it may be her only one...her name is Tabatha King. I don't think I'm spelling her first name right, but you've probably heard of her anyway.

I'm glad you enjoyed the clip and thanks for the comment~

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
