wild-goose chase

A Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on dream, happiness, possibility, wild-goose chase, and world

Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us on a wild-goose chase, and is never attained.  Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864)
