  • “Living in an advanced society where regardless of what country or religion anyone is part of, everybody gets equal opportunities and isn’t treated differently.” (A.

  • "He hadn't once ceased looking at Daisy, and I think he revalued everything in his house according to the measure of response it drew from her well-loved eyes" (Fitzgerald, 1925, pg 98). An ideal American Dream Gatsby had was to get the girl of his dreams, Daisy, and he tried to get it by attracting her attention in not illegal or dishonest ways.
  • "I found out what your ‘drug stores’ were.’ He turned tous and spoke rapidly. ‘He and this Wolfshiem bought up alot of side-street drug stores here and in Chicago and soldgrain alcohol over the counter. " (Fitzgerald, 1925, pg 143). This is Gatsby's Corrupt American Dream as he is achieving what he wants, to gain money, through a dishonest and illegal way, by selling alcohol.
