The Pursuit of Happyness

TenTenLa Gibberish

Christopher Gardner: Hey. Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me. All right?
Christopher: All right.
Christopher Gardner: You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.

Christopher Gardner: It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?

就如Gardner想的,他會奇怪為何Jefferson在說「每個人都有生存、自由、和追尋快樂的權利」時,怎會知道要放追尋這個詞在快樂前面一樣,我也好奇為何Christopher會知道夢想是要用保護這個詞的。

我一直以為夢想是用「不放棄,堅持,追逐」的。我不知道原來首先,它是要被保護的。因為原來夢想involve的不只是你自己的意志,你自己的精神,還要面對很多外界的干擾、襲擊、摧毀;乃至於自我審查。

得悉要看守、保護自己的夢想這件事有多麼意外。我就有多麼天真。

我以後都要學習堅定地按我自己的意思,我的決定行事。絕對不再懦弱、庸懶地甘於讓決擇權放其他人手裡。
