We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the second paragraph of the first article of the US Declaration of Independence. The phrase expresses three key examples of “unalienable rights.”The Declaration was established, in part, to protect these rights.
