The right to the pursuit of happiness means…

Ayn_Rand_Atlas_Shrugged

“The right to the pursuit of happiness means man’s right to live for himself, to choose what constitutes his own, private, personal happiness and to work for its achievement. Each individual is the sole and final judge in this choice. A man’s happiness cannot be prescribed to him by another man or by any number of other men. … These rights are the unconditional, personal, private, individual possession of every man, granted to him by the fact of his birth and requiring no other sanction.  Such was the conception of the founders of our country, who placed individual rights above any and all collective claims.” — Ayn Rand
