The American Dream
En Amérique, le principe s'applique toujours à ce jour selon lequel n'importe qui, quelle que soit son origine, peut devenir riche - s'il travaille suffisamment dur pour cela. Le vieil adage « de la misère à la richesse » résume très bien cette idéologie. Donc ça veut dire : tu aussi peux le rendre riche si tu fais un effort!
In America, the principle still applies to this day that anyone, regardless of their origin, can become rich - if they only work hard enough for it. The old adage “from rags to riches” sums up this ideology very well. So it means: You too can get rich if you make an effort!
