The Great Gatsby
Humility of The Great Gatsby
What is the cost of pursuing a dream?
Like in the book the great Gatsby, when daisy toll tom that “I want to go back in time to change everything with Gatsby”. So that show that Gatsby really like her and her only dream is to be with her and tom dream is to get everything he what like get daisy and myrtle because he is more in love with myrtle then he is with daisy not like Gatsby because he is in love with daisy and he what her back to so he had to be nice and give her space and wait to win her bag because he regrets not telling her.Also in the story daisy gave up on gatsby because she got impatient with her of what she wanted . "Her life shaped. Immediately and the decision must be made by some force of love, of money, of unquestionable practicality that was close at hand”. That why Gatsby and tom gave up in each other dreams and Gatsby had to be humble to daisy because i thing she didn’t what to heart her he wanted her to be happy i think. When Gatsby toll tom that her wife never love him that he love him. “Your wife doesn't love you She's never loved you. She loves me." So in the story tom confronts daisy and tell her if that true and daisy cannot admit that he ever love tom and that show that daisy did really love Gatsby more than tom. Tom in the other hand wanted daisy and myrtle and he could get them both because of daisy true love so tom when to mytle house and when he arrive there mytle was dead and he ask a invesrigator of what happend and they toll him that she was run over and it matche Gastby car description so tom said "He put his anger on the man he alredy hates"So Tom and Gatsby are humility because they show that can be selfish and arrogant and they can have a big ego but they can sometimes be humble.Like he ones said"He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”
