Henry David Thoreau

Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder…

    I totally agree with Henry’s quote, the more you try to chase happiness the more it eludes. Just concentrate o living and happiness will ind you.

    I’m so agreeing with this man..chasing happiness is not a wise decision..focussing on your passion and life will attract happiness

    This is a simple principle that a lot of people fail to heed to. I believe that happiness is a state of mind.

    I had never thought of happiness in this light. It’s very interesting.

    You are right with this,the more we need a thing urgently,the more it elude us. I will have to focus on other things then and let nature run its course.

    I agree yet I also disagree. In my eyes it simply means be natural. Do not force it but do not be lazy either.

    We might never know what the true meaning of happiness is, but it will sure happen to us. We should just wait.

    I totally agree with that especially on the aspect of romantic love. The more I chase it the more it eludes me.

    It’s really hard to find happiness. The more you seek for it, the more you get disappointed.

    I like the quote. In our life, we always tend to find that happiness.

    That’s a beautiful analogy. I find happiness can be very unexpected as well.
