'Shawshank Redemption' or Pinterest Quote: Can You Tell The Difference?
It has been 20 long years since Shawshank Redemption first hit theaters. A lot has changed in the world, but one thing that remains is the constant admiration for the film’s inspirational quotes. I mean, what did we expect? The film has the beautiful voice of Morgan Freeman in it, so by nature it had to be inspirational. It’s the Morgan Freeman Rule.
But even accounting for the Morgan Freeman Rule — which I totally made up, by the way — this film that revolves around men in prison has such beautiful quotes, that if you close your eyes and listen to the movie, you could think someone is reciting their Pinterest quote board to you. So can you tell the difference between a Shawshank Redemption quote and a classic Pinterest quote (you know the kind, the sunset background, the Comic Sans font)?
