The Pursuit of Happiness

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.  – James Oppenheim

the holy grail

The pursuit of happiness is the holy grail. Pursuing happiness is like trying to get ahead of the river while swimming in it.  We may pursue but grasp happiness we may not. It can only be experienced.


Everything worthwhile is here and now. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t seek after big goals. It just means that we take here and now with us, wherever we go. True happiness and fulfillment may only be found therein.
