seguire la felicità

Post by ruthelsa » Sun Jul 27, 2014 10:14 pm

Ciao a tutti,

Looking for translation of the Italian phrase "seguire la felicità" which I believe means "follow happiness". Would anyone be able to confirm this for me? Does it mean to seek out happiness? :)

Grazie!!

While it does literally mean to follow happiness, I cannot remember having heard that expression. Look for happiness I am not too keen on, but we can say to seek happiness. :)

That's right, but italians would normally say "INseguire la felicità" which means "to pursue happiness".
Bye!

"To pursue happiness" is a good translation. But I would also translate it as "following your dreams", if in the context of the sentence 'happiness' has the same meaning of 'dreams'.

Usually this sentence is preceded by a subject and a verb, for example: Scelgo di seguire la felicità
To seek out the happiness is "Cercare la felicità".
Where did you find this sentence?
