We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness – Declaration of Independence
Pursuit of happiness. Why did Thomas Jefferson put the ‘pursuit’ part in there?
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?
Why must we be so afraid to embrace it once again? Why must we let it slip through our fingers like water in the palm?
