Googlemail was so kind to link to an AskYahoo page about the well-known phrase "The American dream".

The original text by writer and historian John Truslow Adams contains the following quote:


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.


Just saying.

Just as the Declaration of Independence talks about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Not Mercedes, a fancy house in the suburbs and the pursuit of a great career.
