an exclusive desire for happiness is the surest way to prevent happiness from coming into being. happiness has a way of “sneaking up” on persons when they are pre-occupied with other things; but when persons deliberately and single-mindedly set off in pursuit of happiness, it vanishes utterly from sight and cannot be captured.
