English term or phrase:any man may be rich that will be industrious
Article on alchemy.
In the 1641 pamphlet "A Description of the Famous Kingdome of Macaria", Gabriel Plattes laid out the Hartlib Circle’s general vision of improvement [...] The cornerstone of this plan was to “shew the transmutation of sublunary bodies, in such manner, that any man may be rich that will be industrious."
Not sure about the meaning of "that will be". Thank you
