Only in America can you rise from nothing and make a name and money for yourself. The opportunites are there for the taking and the hard work.
You know, I have read this before and several people have told this to me as well, and everytime I hear this, I just cant help laughing abt the *ONLY* in America part.
I believe that hard work always pays, never mind whether you are in America or elsewhere. The world is full of examples where people have arisen from very humble beginings so go on to become great rich men. Ofocurse this is not true for everyone who works hard, but I think it holds true in America as well.
