The Great Gatsby Quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
50 Of The Most Beautiful Lines In "The Great Gatsby"
I decided to call to him. Miss Baker had mentioned him at dinner, and that would do for an introduction. But I didn't call to him, for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone—he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way, and, far as I was from him, I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward—and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock. When I looked once more for Gatsby he had vanished, and I was alone again in the unquiet darkness. Love the one you're with, or love the one you were with?

He talked a lot about the past, and I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was. Angry, and half in love with her, and tremendously sorry, I turned away. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time.
