american dream

  1. The American Dream is an ideal, something to strive for, which, to be honest, hardly any working class or poor American actually ever sees or experiences. But yet, it is the thing that keeps those working and poor Americans going. For it is the underlying American belief that transcends all other all things. It is so deep and so engrained, that it is rarely ever consciously thought or spoken about. It is the thing that many people from other countries don’t see, because they don’t usually get to see or meet the average American.

    Every American has their own interpretation of what the American Dream is, but essentially it is a belief that all people can succeed through hard work, and that all people have the potential to live happy, successful lives, it is about hope and the potential for change.

    For people who believe in the American dream, anything is attainable through hard work. And that no matter how bad it is, how poor you are, where you come from, where you live, what you believe, what race you are, how hard it is, or how long it takes, there is always hope as long as you are willing to work for it.

  2. You don’t have to be an American, or even like Americans, to believe in the American Dream, for it is just a term invented in America describing a concept that is actually universal to all people.

  3. The term "The American Dream” was first used by James Adams - "that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position."
    quote : James Truslow Adams -The Epic of America 1931.
