In preparation for tea with Daisy, Gatsby sends someone to Nick's house to cut the grass and put flowers in. But he was worried because it was a gloomy day.
Perseverance to Achieve the Dream
*nervous chuckle* "uhhh hello."
" 'I want you and Daisy to come over to my house,' he said. 'I'd like to show her around' " (Fitzgerald 89).
"There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams" (Fitzgerald 95).Gatsby bought his house so he could see Daisy's from across the lake. Although Daisy is next to him, the green light is fading along with his dream of being with her.
My border quotes are here:"Possibly it had occurred to him that the colossal significance of that light had now vanished forever" (Fitzgerald 93). "as though in her actual and astounding presence none of it was any longer real" (Fitzgerald 92).
Not In That Way by Sam Smith"I'd never ask you cause deep downI'm certain I know what you'd say"
Gatsby always came off as confident, but that all change the moment Daisy was in his presence. At first he was very timid and did not know what to do. As the evening went on he started getting his confidence back and moved everyone to his house.
In the beginning Gatsby was a nervous wreck when he was about to see Daisy again after all these years. As the night went on, they were more and more comfortable with each other. After getting to know Daisy again Gatsby felt like he could be his real self.
After all these years, Gatsby is still in love with Daisy. Although he will always have a place in her heart, Daisy loves him but is not in love with him. https://genius.com/Sam-smith-not-in-that-way-lyrics
After working hard, Gatsby grew rich and was close to achieving the American Dream. Having Daisy, his true love, would complete his dream. This shows that money can not but happiness but love can make you happy.
