Too: “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…”– Thoreau

Or as someone said of the thought “I want happiness” – ‘drop the I, get rid of the want and there it is.’ Since happiness is the letting go of selfish desire, wanting it for yourself is contradictory.
