Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Frank Delaney
#1. 'The Great Gatsby,' by F. Scott Fitzgerald, remains the most perfect novel that has ever come out of the United States. Everything in the book moves as it should, in the manner of a piece by Bach or Mozart. #Quote by Frank Delaney

[about The Great Gatsby] #Quote by Maxwell Perkins

#10. I developed a mania for Fitzgerald - by the time I'd graduated from high school I'd read everything he'd written. I started with 'The Great Gatsby' and moved on to 'Tender Is the Night,' which just swept me away. Then I read 'This Side of Paradise,' his novel about Princeton - I literally slept with that book under my pillow for two years. #Quote by A. Scott Berg

Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Maureen Corrigan
#14. It's Fitzgerald's thin-but-durable urge to affirm that finally makes Gatsby worthy of being our Great American Novel. Its soaring conclusion tells us that, even though Gatsby dies and the small and corrupt survive, his longing was nonetheless magnificent. #Quote by Maureen Corrigan

Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Robyn Schneider
#17. But I know now that isn't true; history is filled with fictional people. And even the epigraph Fitzgerald placed at the beginning of The Great Gatsby is by a writer who doesn't exist. We have all been fooled into believing in people who are entirely imaginary - made-up prisoners in a hypothetical panopticon. But the point isn't whether or not you believe in imaginary people; it's whether or not you want to. #Quote by Robyn Schneider
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Alison Umminger

Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Azar Nafisi
#19. You don't read Gatsby, I said, to learn whether adultery is good or bad but to learn about how complicated issues such as adultery and fidelity and marriage are. A great novel heightens your senses and sensitivity to the complexities of life and of individuals, and prevents you from the self-righteousness that sees morality in fixed formulas about good and evil. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#20. There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#21. If it wasn't for the mist we could see your home across the bay," said Gatsby. "You always have a green light that burns at the end of your dock."
Daisy put her arm through his abruptly but he seemed absorbed in what he had just said. Possibly it had occurred to him that the colossal significance of that light had now vanished forever. Compared to the great distance that had separated him from Daisy it had seemed very near to him, almost touching her. It had seemed as close as a star to the moon. Now it was again a green light on a dock. His count of enchanted things had diminished by one. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#22. 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. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
#23. He felt that he was leaving behind him his chance of being a certain type of artist. It seemed so much more important to be a certain sort of man. #Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#24. I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#25. But I felt that Tom would drift on forever seeking, a little wistfully, for the dramatic turbulence of some irrecoverable football game #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#26. Standing behind him, Michaelis saw with a shock that he was looking at the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg, which had just emerged, pale and enormous, from the dissolving night. "God sees everything," repeated Wilson. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#27. I am still a little afraid of missing something if I forget that, as my father snobbishly suggested, and I snobbishly repeat, a sense of the fundamental decencies is parcelled out unequally at birth. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by John Green
#28. Why do writers use symbolism?" Okay, so let's say you have a headache and you wanna tell someone about it and you say, "I have a headache!" and other people are like, "Yeah, whatever. Everybody gets headaches." But your headache is not a regular headache, it's a serious headache, so you say, "My brain is on fire!" to try to help these people understand that this is a headache that needs attention! That's a metaphor, right? And you use it so that you can be understood. Now let's say you want to take those same imagistic principles but apply them to a much more complex idea than having a headache, like, for instance, the yearning that one feels for one's dreams. And you can see the dream but you can't cross the bay to get to the green light that embodies your dream. And you want to talk about how socio-economic class in America is a barrier – a bay-like barrier, some would say – that stands between you and the green light and makes that gap unbridgeable. Now, you can just talk about that stuff directly, but when you talk about it symbolically, it becomes more powerful, because instead of being abstract it becomes kind of observable…. So I think that's why. #Quote by John Green
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Kate Beaton
#29. On The Great Gatsby: Fifteen-year-olds can really get behind an essay on what green light means, which is good, because they sure as heck won't relate to any of the characters, who are all huge jerks with enough money to be wasted most of the time on top of being miserable. #Quote by Kate Beaton
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#30. One emotion after another crept into her face like objects into a slowly developing picture. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Garrett Hedlund
#31. I fantasised about F. Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby' - I loved it, and then I read everything J. D. Salinger had to offer. Then I was turned on to Kerouac, and his spontaneous prose, his stream of consciousness way of writing. I admired him so much, and I romanticised so much about the '40s and '50s. #Quote by Garrett Hedlund
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Danielle De Niese
#32. One of my favourite books of all time: 'The Great Gatsby'. I just think it's so well written. #Quote by Danielle De Niese
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Azar Nafisi
#33. Empathy lies at the heart of Gatsby, like so many other great novels
the biggest sin is to be blind to others' problems and pains. Not seeing them means denying their existence. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#34. Hating "The Great Gatsby" (the novel) is like spitting into the Grand Canyon. It will not be going away anytime soon, but you will be. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#35. 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 ... #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#36. I wasn't actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#37. But they made no sound and what I had almost remembered was uncommunicable again. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#38. It was the hour of a profound human change, and excitement was generating on the air. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Pat Conroy
#39. Let me now praise the American writer James Dickey. In 1970, his novel 'Deliverance' was published. I found it to be 278 pages that approached perfection. Its tightness of construction and assuredness of style reminded me of 'The Great Gatsby.' #Quote by Pat Conroy
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#40. Unlike Gatsby and Tom Buchanan I had no girl whose disembodied face floated along the dark cornices and blinding signs and so I drew up the girl beside me, tightening my arms. Her wan scornful mouth smiled and I drew her up again, closer, this time to my face. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#41. A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Ruth E. Carter
#42. I think that The Great Gatsby has had some influence on contemporary dressing. I'm seeing more boyish haircuts and drop-waist sheath dresses. #Quote by Ruth E. Carter
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Helen Gardner
#43. The tragic hero usurps the function of the gods and attempts to remake the world. #Quote by Helen Gardner
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#44. Anything can happen now that we've slid over this bridge, anything at all ... #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Sarah Vowell
#45. I am drawn to Tom Sawyer Island because a tribute to Mark Twain would not be out of place in a theme park of my own design. Should Vowell World ever get enough investors, I'm going to stick my Tom Sawyer Island in Love and Death in the American Novel Land right between the Jay Gatsby Swimming Pool and Tom Joad's Dust Bowl Lanes, a Depression-themed bowling alley renting artfully worn-out shoes. #Quote by Sarah Vowell
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#46. He's just a man names Gatsby. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
#47. I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn't believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer cared. 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... #Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Wolfsheim Great Gatsby quotes by Azar Nafisi
#48. The best work of literature to represent the American Dream is 'The Great Gatsby' by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It shows us how dreaming can be tainted by reality, and that if you don't compromise, you may suffer. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
