Pursuit of Happiness

Dari film itu ada satu kalimat yang sangat kuingat. Kalimat yang diucapkan Gardner pada Christopher saat mereka usai bermain basket. Satu hari aku ingin mengatakannya pada anakku.

“Hey… Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you’ve got to 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…”

  1. Satu film bagus yang lain…
    Kalo menyerah kita gak akan pernah jadi apa2.
    Btw, di bukunya si chris gardner ini pernah jadi asisten perawat gitu lho.. waktu masih gabung ma AL AS

  2. Yang terlintas setelah nonton film ini tadi: Kebahagiaan memang tidak langsung jatuh ke pangkuan kita. Kebahagiaan itu harus diupayakan. Diperjuangkan. Ada jatuh-bangun. Dan bahkan sebelum bangun, yang sering dialami adalah jatuh, jatuh, dan jatuh. Ketika mengalami jatuh yang bertubi-tubi banyak orang kehilangan harapan. Banyak orang melihat bahwa kejatuhan itu adalah akhir dari segalanya. Bahwa itu adalah jalan buntu, tidak ada jalan keluar. Film ini memberi semangat: harapan selalu ada bagi mereka yang teguh. Jalan selalu ada bagi mereka yang tegar. Harapan dan jalan untuk bahagia — dalam hal apapun.

    FAVE QUOTES:

    Christopher Gardner: [to his son] 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: Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me.

    Christopher Gardner: [about the spelling mistakes in the graffiti of a building] It’s not “H-A-P-P-Y-N-E-S-S” Happiness is spelled with an “I” instead of a “Y”
    ***
    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?

    Christopher: Hey 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!”

    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
