Cavuto: Happiness Must Be Pursued
“The pursuit of happiness is not a meaningless American platitude but a profoundly insightful formulation. Happiness, to be achieved, must be pursued. It cannot be handed to you. You must determine what goals to set, what principles to follow, what traits of character to embody, what level of self-assessment and self-criticism to practice, what people to deal with and on what terms. You must then put your vision into practice, carving out a life that for you counts as a thriving one. None of this is easy. All of it demands sustained thinking and careful action, neither of which can be performed for you.”
