I love to watch movie. Pursuit of Happyness really means a lot to me, it gave me some motivation to pursuit what i dream and what i want in life.

Below is the best part of the movie.

"Don't ever let somebody tell you... You can't do something. "

"You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period."

FYI, this movie is based on a true story of Chris Gardner. A salesman living with his wife and only son. He's been selling some weird looking scanner and expensive to doctors, but it not went well. Bored with their life, his wife left him and his son to stay at her mother. (yes, his wife left him because she couldn't bare their struggle life).

His life was in jeopardy and he cannot pay his rent. There is one part where the father and son get evicted from the hotel they are staying at and have to spend a night at a subway station bathroom. That just falls flat for me – he could have done anything except take an internship program in stock-brokering, which pays nothing and is full-time for 6 months at that point, and not have his child sleep at a restroom floor.

And the rest, he succeed in building his empire until today.
