This quote from chapter 5 is an example of the theme of the American Dream.

Americans, while occasionally willing to be serfs, have always been obstinate about being peasantry."

 

I feel this is a particularly fitting quote because Americans are willing to work hard to become something, but we are not satisfied never being able to rise above where we are.
