So Much Beauty In this World..from the film American Beauty

It was one of those days. A minute away from snowing and there was this electricity in the air.You could almost hear it. And this bag was just dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it for 15 minutes. Thats the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things and this benevolent force that wanted me to know that there was no reason to be afraid. Never. Video is a poor excuse I know but it helps me to remember. I need to remember. Sometimes there is so much beauty in this world that I feel like I can not take it and my heart is going to cave in.

Ricky Fitts

First of all that one second is not one second at all.It streches on forever like an ocean of time. For me, it was lying on my back at boy scout camp watching falling stars.And yellow leaves from the maple trees that lined our street.Or my grandmothers hands and the way her skin seemed like paper.And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand new firebird. And Jamie. And Jamie. And Caroline. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me but it is hard to stay mad when there is so much beauty in this world.Sometimes I feel like I am seeing it all at once and it is too much. My heart fills up like a balloon thats about to burst.And then I remember to relax.To stop trying to hold onto it. And then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but graditude for every single moment of my stupid little life.You have no idea what I am talking about I'm sure but don't worry.You will someday.

Lester Burnham

This film is one of my all time favorites. Other than lusting after a high school cheerleader(I prefer my cheerleaders to be older and wiser but still do love the outfits), I went through a similar experience to what Lester went through.This movie recieved an Academy Award and is a must see if you have not yet done so.

It was a good movie, worth renting and watching again.

Loved the movie but it was a little too Hollywood with Lester getting shot by the homophobic but homo dad.

great movie

here's some other movie quotes for you

"I'll tell you a secret. Something they don't teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again."

”I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams … glitter in the dark near Tanhauser Gate. All those … moments will be lost … in time, like tears … in rain. Time … to die.”
~Blade Runner~

"Every man dies. Not every man really lives."

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo
