On Happiness

"Everything in this world is going up. And happiness is going down, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
How many of us, I wonder, can recall that childhood moment when we experienced happiness as a state of being.
That single moment of untarnished joy. That moment when everything in our world, inside and out was alright. Everything was alright.
But now we’ve become a colony of adults and everything is all wrong. All the time! It’s as if we were on a quest to get it back.
And yet the more we focus on our own personal happiness, the more it is useless.
In fact, it’s only when we are otherwise engaged, you know, focused on, absorbed, inspired, communicating, discovering, learning dancing, for heavens sake that we experience happiness as a by product, a side effect.
Oh no. We should concern ourselves not so much with the pursuit of happiness, but with the happiness of a pursuit."
-(fragment wykładu profesora Coremana o szczęściu, z filmu "Hector and the Search for Happiness)
