the-pursuit-of-happyness

Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they are going to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.
—  Will Smith
And it was at that time that I thought about Thomas Jefferson writing the Declaration of Independence. Him saying that we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And I thought about how he knew to put the ‘pursuit’ in there, like no one can actually have happiness, we can only pursue it.

Just saw your list of fave Kane/Toews moments,and I think I need a refresher. When did the following things happen: 40. Possibly watching The Pursuit of Happyness together, 42. Patrick likes 1988, 57. Patrick staring at Jonny as he talks with Sharpy, and Patrick calling Jonny the LeBron of the NHL? :) Thanks very much!

Those are some great moments!

40. Here is the screenshot I put together for the poll choice (compiled from posts in my tag the Pursuit of Happyness):

At the end of July, he said he saw the movie the other day. Prospect camp was at the beginning of July (July 2-6), and Kane and Toews were roommates. So maybe Jonny showed Patrick his favourite movie?

42. From Kaner’s old blog:

(I like that both Patrick and his father like 1988.)

57. Sharpy is filming Kaner talking here for the Sharpy Cam. At the beginning of the first gif, you see Kaner look directly at Sharpy, but then the rest of the time he glances at Jonny (who is sitting on Sharpy’s other side) as he’s talking:

Patrick calling Jonny the LeBron of the NHL:

He really looks up to LeBron and he thought of Jonny. <3
