Now that is interesting. Happen to have sources to name? However, though your points that fit the topic more closely, what I actually meant was something different.
Happiness is not something you have, but something you are, a state to achieve. You cannot "pursue" it. No external influence can bring you happiness if you are not happy, nor can take it if you are happy, even though external forces may bring excitement or grief.
Of course, assuming it was a rewording, it would be doubly ironic that this fallacy has been the ideal for many generations to follow..
