Chapter 1
Dissatisfaction in The Great Gatsby
"Tom talked incessantly, exulting and laughing, but his voice was as remote from Jordan and me as the foreign clamor on the sidewalk or the tumult of the elevated overhead. Human sympathy has its limits, and we were content to let all their tragic arguments fade with the city lights behind."

Explanation: Well, Tom seems pretty satisfied with himself,but no one else is. They're all unhappy with what's just happened, but Tom has control of this situation.
"Instead of being the warm center of the world, the Middle West now seemed like the ragged edge of the universe—so I decided to go East and learn the bond business." Nick Carraway

Explanation: that you'd think that returning from war would make Nick satisfied to live a quiet life with his family,but it doesn't. It just makes him restless and, dissatisfied.
-lack of satisfaction
"Why they came East I don't know. They had spent a year in France for no particular reason, and then drifted here and there unrestfully wherever people played polo and were rich together. This was a permanent move, said Daisy over the telephone, but I didn't believe it – I had no sight into Daisy's heart, but I felt that Tom would drift on forever seeking, a little wistfully, for the dramatic turbulence of some irrecoverable football game." Nick Carraway

Explanation: Tom's problem is that he peaked too early, playing football at Yale. It's hard to be satisfied with a normal life of playing polo and yachting when you've been a gridiron star.
"The lack of satisfaction leads to unhappiness"

Dissatisfaction in The Great Gatsby
"James Gatz – that was really, or at least legally, his name. He had changed it at the age of seventeen and at the specific moment that witnessed the beginning of his career – when he saw Dan Cody's yacht drop anchor over the most insidious flat on Lake Superior." Nick Carraway

Explanation: There's being dissatisfied with your clothes or your haircut, and then there's being dissatisfied with your entire existence. James Gatz is dissatisfied with his whole being, and we're pretty sure this isn't going to end well.
Chapter 8
"They're a rotten crowd," I shouted across the lawn. "You're worth the whole damn bunch put together." Nick Carraway

Explanation: Finally, right before Gatsby dies, Nick realizes that all the people he's been hanging around with are no good. Gee, took you long enough, Nick.
