The end of the tunnel

One memorable image that relates to this same question can be found in the film The Shawshank Redemption
(which was inspired in part by a famous tunnel escape from Eastern
State). The warden gives the main character, Andy Dufresne, a Bible
upon his incarceration with an admonition that "the answer lies
within." Near the film's end, after Andy's escape, the warden finds
that the Bible has been placed in his safe with a note that reads: "The
answer lies within." Inside the Bible, the warden finds a cavity carved
from the pages in the shape of the rock hammer used to slowly dig
Andy's way to freedom. Andy and the warden saw the problem quite
differently from one another and their answers to the problem differed
accordingly, and dramatically.
