The Pursuit of Happyness Quotes



The Pursuit of Happyness  is one of my all time favorite movie. It always inspires me.The Pursuit of Happyness is a 2006 American biographical drama film based on Chris Gardner's nearly one-year struggle with homelessness.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the movie The Pursuit of Happyness:

Christopher Gardner: You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can't do it. You want something? Go get it. Period.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Gardner: I met my father for the first time when I was 28 years old. I made up my mind that when I had children, my children were going to know who their father was.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Martin Frohm: What would you say if man walked in here with no shirt, and I hired him? What would you say?
Christopher Gardner: He must have had on some really nice pants.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Gardner:  It's not "H-A-P-P-Y-N-E-S-S." Happiness is spelled with an "I" instead of a "Y."
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher: Dad, you wanna hear something funny? There was a man who was drowning, and a boat came, and the man on the boat said "Do you need help?" and the man said "God will save me". Then another boat came and he tried to help him, but he said "God will save me", then he drowned and went to Heaven. Then the man told God, "God, why didn't you save me?" and God said "I sent you two boats, you dummy!"
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Gardner: It was at that time that I thought about Thomas Jefferson writing that Declaration of Independence. Him saying that we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I thought about how he knew to put the 'pursuit' in there, like no one can actually have happiness. We can only pursue it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Gardner: Probably means there's a good chance. Possibly means we might or we might not.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Gardner: [narrating] This part of my life... this part right here? This part is called "being stupid."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reverend Williams: The important thing about that freedom train, is it's got to climb mountains. We ALL have to climb mountains, you know. Mountains that go way up high, and mountains that go deep and low. Yes, we know what those mountains are here at Glide. We sing about them.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Gardner: [narrating] This part of my life... this part right here? This is called "happyness."
