  • You're a liar and a criminal and she'll never want to be with a crook like you!
  • “To me, the American Dream means always being able to keep my family safe, and that no matter what I do, I know that no harm will come to them". This illustrates my dad just wants to have a happy and healthy family, and that is his dream.
  • "Look here, this is a book he had when he was a boy. It just shows you... on the last fly-leaf was printed the word schedule and the date September 12, 1906. And underneath:"(Fitzgerald, 1925, P.173). This demonstrates how at first Gatsby just wanted to make a good honest living for himself and the ones he loved.
  • "I found out what your 'drug-stores' were." He turned to us and spoke rapidly. "He and this Wolfsheim bought up a lot of side-street drug-stores here and in Chicago and sold grain alcohol over the counter. That's one of his little stunts. I picked him for a bootlegger the first time I saw him, and I wasn't far wrong"(Fitzgerald, 1925, P. 133). This portrays how Gatsby got his American Dream, but it was a criminal, corrupt one.
