Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

What did Thomas Jefferson mean when he referred to the "pursuit of happiness"?

My thought is that pursue means to chase or go after. Happiness is not handed to us on a silver platter. It is a choice.

"Posterity--you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it."

~John Quincy Adams

Happy 4th of July
