The Pursuit of Happyness

It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking: How did he know to put the “pursuit” part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue. And maybe we can actually never have it… no matter what. How did he know that?

Az egyetlen baj, az volt ezzel a filmmel, hogy már megint arra kellett gondolnom, hogy jelenleg a legnagyobb gondom az iskola, s nem érek vele semmit. Mert 1o év múlva senkit nem fog érdekelni, hányast kaptam a felmérőimre. Tudom, hogy most ez a dolgom, stb. De mégis…

… when I was young and I’d get an A on a history test or whatever, I’d get this good feeling about all the things that I could be. And then I never became any of them.
