Ah... a poster my sister had on her dorm room wall phrased it a bit differently: Do not concentrate on the pursuit of happiness; that way lies grief. Instead, concentrate on the happiness of pursuit. (Somewhat paraphrased, I believe).

I think it gave my sister the thumbs up to be a slut in college.

Ang- Perhaps you prefer this (albeit more grim) version:

"The search for happiness ... always ends in the ghastly sense of the bottomless nothingness into which you will inevitably fall if you strain any further."
