1. It takes a strong man to save himself, and a great man to save another.


2. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.


3. Some birds arent meant to be caged, thats all. Their feathers are just too bright!


4. I find Im so excited. I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope...


5. Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.


6. These walls are kind of funny like that. First you hate them, then you get used to them. Enough time passed, get so you depend on them.


7. Theres not a day going by I dont feel regret. Not because Im in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then. Then a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I cant. That kids long gone and this old man is all thats left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? Its just a bull word. So you go on and stamp your form, sorry, and stop wasting my time...


8. I guess it comes down to a simple choice: get busy living or get busy dying.
