Self-Made:  The name implies enough.  There was no inheritance bequethed, no dowry received.  There were no paths made clear, or fortunes bestowed.

The pride of accomplishing something, despite the odds or unfortunate circumstances of birth, is almost reward enough to the self-made man (or woman).  Except that it’s not.

We, the self-made, have something to prove, something to achieve.  We, the self-made, will not rest until our names are written, in stone, on a brick, or monument, or foundation, marking our success.
