QUESTION
Quote on the 1920’s spirit/American Dream?
I am writing an essay on the American dream in the 1920’s and i need a quote on it for my introdiction. Please help me out! THANKS!

ANSWER
The American Dream is all about what people will do if you allow them the open opportunity. And that’s why an extraordinary number of people come from other countries and achieve greatness here. It’s because they have the desire, the toughness, the willingness to work, and the education, and then they do something with it, and it is extraordinary to see. Other countries are beginning to determine the fact that they can’t succeed against us if they don’t provide more freedom.

Craig McCaw-Pioneer of Telecommunications

“People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they’re all asleep at the switch. Consequently we are living in the Age of Human Error.”

Florence King, American novelist, essayist and columnist.
