"There's no way to happiness. Happiness is the way." This is perhaps the best description about happiness I've ever read.
Yes, happiness shouldn't be the goal, but the way or the attitude. Every living being on earth is striving for happiness, because it's our nature, the way of life. When a human being feels unhappy, unsatisfied, not because he/she couldn't archive this or that, it's because they're just not living with their nature, with the attitude of being happy. Technology have provided human the tremendous power to seek for better living from nature. But if we forget the way of nature, the basic rights for all living being on earth, then we're just rushing our world to a dead end.
The earth don't seek for happiness, happiness is the seed of all lives.
