The following is the tagline of film Shawshank Redemption:

Fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set you free!

I want to make an aphorism of similar kind such as:

Fear can make you a loser, hope can make a king.

Please help me to make the above aphorism better. Should you have any other idea you are welcome.

In my prior post I wrote:

1: Shawshank Redemption is also one of my favourite movies.

But I think the above sentence was wrong to say in the given context. The correct choice should had been:

2: Shawshank Redemption is one of my favourite movies too.

Am I correct?
Jackson6612...........

How about this one?

But I think the above sentence is (not 'was') wrong in the given context. The correct wording should have been:

2: Shawshank Redemption is one of my favourite movies too.

Am I correct? Either sentence is fine.

"Learn" might be a better word to use.
