Corey Archibald says:

Andy Dufresne from Shaw shank redemption, this man was truly genius. He was
Creative, ambitious and had a head full of knowledge. He learn from some of
the most intense life experience that will ever occur in our human
lifetime. A man of wisdom. even if his body was prisoned in his cell… His
mind was free, free because he had hope that one day he would get out of
the prison he was trapped, to go somewhere his soul wanted to be. Don’t be
the person who hopes for something because you want it so badly but your
mind is prisoned by the odds of failure. Be like Andy that didn’t thought
outside the box but… Thought like there was no box. The only limits to
our intelligent human mind is the one we think are true, but are they
