why the pursuit part?

People who feel familiar with the title must have seen the movie "The Pursuit of Happiness".In that movie, the main actor Chris, when left by his wife in despair, thought to himself, "It was right then that I started thinking about Tomas Jefferson, with the Declaration of Independence, the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking, how did he ever know to put the pursuit part in there? Maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue, but maybe we can actually never have it, no matter what. How did he know that?..."I think I now understand the reason why Tomas put "the pursuit" in the Declaration of Independence, in a very different way Chris perceived it: Happiness is something we must pursue. Actually, there could not be true happiness of any kind without "the pursuit".

  It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson, 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 hace it no matter what.
  That's what Chris told us but the whole movie is telling us to pursue, to protect and to work hard to find the happiness in your heart. I remember what he told his son when playing basketball:
  Don't ever let somebody tell you, you can't do something. You got a dream, you gonna protect it. People can't do something themselves they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want something, go get it, period.
  I don't know what happiness exactly but I know if we want to find out the answer, we must start to go to the way of pursuit. Happiness never come when we only thinking.
  The answer of what's happiness is not important, but we work hard to seek it, to make our dreams come true no matter how difficult, no matter how many crisis there waiting for us,no matter how many embarrassed and despaired moments, that's important.

一个同学说每次他需要热血的时候就看这部电影,因此就好奇这部电影是否有这样的魔力而找来看看了。
看完之后对其中这段心理自白印象深刻:
It was right then that I started thinking about Tomas Jefferson, with the Declaration of Independence, the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking, how did he ever know to put the pursuit part in there? Maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue, but maybe we can actually never have it, no matter what. How did he know that?..."
是的,幸福是用来追求的而不是用来拥有的。所以我们不应当沮丧我们没有幸福,而是应当看到我们正走在追求幸福的路上。

 Chris is shown running throughout the movie. Remember the title of the movie: "The PURSUIT of Happiness." Chris places emphasis on "pursuit." Jefferson, when he penned the Declaration of Independence, did not promise Americans happiness, but only the right to pursue it. Chris says, at one point in the movie, paraphrase, "I am happy right now. It is a fleeting moment." We experience happiness in eyeblinks. The rest of the time we, like Chris, are chasing after it.
