Day86 - Gatsby

Bathtime and the closing chapters of The Great Gatsby. Such a pleasure in language, I feel very much at home, comfortable, honored to be reading such beauty.

"No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart."

"Stupid with liquor."

"If that was true he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. He must have looked up at an unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about...like that ashen, fantastic figure gliding toward him through the amorphous trees."

"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther... And one fine morning. So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."


  1. Good for you! I adore Gatsby too! I cant agree more on the first quote - it's long been one of my favourites.

  2. Now I'm hesitant to read anything else! Still savoring the literary aftertaste that glistens on my lips.
