in persuit of happyness

Saw that movie last night. It was one of those movies that made me think about life, the universe and everything.

One of the thing that catches my attention was when the protagonist laments about the phrase 'Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness' in US of A's declaration of independence. He points out the genius of Thomas Jefferson for including the word 'pursuit' in the phrase, saying that Tom must've been very wise to understand the elusiveness of happiness.

Now comes the part where i tell you all to stop pursuing an ever greater material wealth and be contented with what you already have.
