Quote 1 Pg. 130; " She never Loved you, DID YOU HEAR?" HE CRIED. "SHE WAS ONLY MARRIED YOU BECAUSE I WAS POOR AND SHE TIRED OF WAITING FOR ME. IT WAS A TERRIBLE MISTAKE, BUT HER HEART SHE NEVER LOVED ANYONE EXCEPT ME!" - jAY GASTBY IN this quote, a theme arises. the theme that is shown through gatsby is peer pressure. the reason I say this is because he keeps telling daisy in the course of the couple pages before, "isn't that true??" His questioning finally makes daisy crack which is a nther quotw I will show later and contrast the theme of that quote. Quote 2 "Please Don't." Her voice was cold, but the rancor was gone from it. She looked at gatsby. "there, jay," she said but her hand as she tried to light a cigarette and the burning match on the carpet." - Daisy Buchanan. Here a theme of mere inosense/irritation is portrayed. as jay pressures previously, "you love me, Don't you??" This causes daisy to crack with irritation and nervousness. As the quote ends with her, "...as she tried to light a cigarette was trembling." by her nervousness, she uses the cigarette as a vice for relief and comfort. Quote 3
"who are you, anyhow?" broke out tom. "you're one of that bunch that hangs around with meyer wolfsheim- that much I happen to know. I've made a little investigation into your affairs- and I'll carry it further to-morrow." -Tom Buchanan The them of this quote most definitely expresses tom's attitude towards gatsby and jealous. the jealous is shown through the fact that he further investigated Gatsby's background to see the truth of who he really is. as tom jealous/anger escalates it can turn into things like this. Quote 4 quote 5
"WE're all in white here." murmered jordan. -Jordan baker The theme, obvioulsy of this quote is white. It is a huge symbol of the book and pops up quite often. To me, I see White as a common symbol. IT symbolizes "the pureness" of everyone. though, the pureness is a cover up for what truly hides under everyone's feelings. "She doesn't look like her father," explained daisy. "she looks like me. She's got my hair and shape of the face." -Daisy Buchanan
The theme I find in this quote is carelessness. the reason I find this is because daisy didn't acknowledge anything about her daughter but her looks. she doesn't describe anything to gatsby but the way she looks. I find it sad because that is a very shallow thing to only notice about a person, especially when it is her own daughter. THE GREAT GATSBY C

QUOTE 3 NEXT CHAPTER "Go away now, old sport?"
- Jay Gatsby Here, Gatsby's Feelings are held back and trust. After he had built all his trust with nick, he didn't want to share his feelings. he feels as if there is nothing else to say to nick, but suddenly his feelings are opened and told. he finally tells nick what had happened with a tremendously long and intriguing story. "GOd SEes everthing."
Repeated Wilson. Here, George wislon shows a theme of distrust from his wife. he was explaining how God knows what she was doing and that god truly does see everything. as he told her this before she passed, he was looking out the window at the advertisement of the eyes. He had come to believe that was truly god. the distrust comes from the relationship between his wife and his relationship with her. GOd and him knew the what his wife was doing which was the distrust. "No- I don't think this afternoon."
-Nick Carraway Here, Nick shows the theme of Support of friendship. as jordan asks to see him, he says he can't because he wants to be their for gatsby and his troubles. this shows how good and strong of a friendship their is between gatsby and nick. they are there now not only to support each other but just be there in comfort.

E mr. wolfsheim meant that he "created" Gatsby and that in the beginning gatsby had had nothing. I, personally, do not agree with mr. wolfsheim. The reason I don't agree with him, is that fact that everyone starts somewhere no matter how they are; poor or rich. "he had a big future before him, you know. he was only a young man, but he had a lot of brain power here." -MR.GAtz This quote to me shows that someone can't create or bring you out of nothing. Gatsby's father states that he had a lot of brain power. See, qualities are already apart of a person so they can't come from nothing. Each person has personality to support them in whatever they are participating such as businesses, sports, jobs, etc. "If he'd of lived, he'd of been a great man. A man like James J. Hill. He'd of helped build up the country." -MR. Gatz This quote I think symbolizes another aspect that you have before you think or someone says "you were out of nothing." The reason the quote shows this is because it uses support from close relatives such as Gatsby's father. If he knew of this support, it could boost him to have confidence and use the useful qualities that he has molded himself into. QUOTE 1 QUOTE 2 Quote-explanation Quote-explanation
