See the way the handle on her pruning shears matches her gardening clogs?

“But it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.”

- Ricky Fitts, American Beauty (1999)

I ILLEGALLY downloaded American Beauty this weekend
and watched it in bed on Sunday. This is one of my favourite
quotes of all time. I always cry in the scene.
