this makes more sense to my soul, part 2

here's a quote from the movie american beauty. it's said by a man who was murdered - after his murder, as he looks back:

"i guess i could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me. 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 onto 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.

"you have no idea what i'm talking about, i'm sure. but don't worry; you will someday."
