Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… and one fine morning - so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
― The Great Gatsby, F.Scott Fitzgerald (via s-unflowerfields)
I looked at it as not a love story any more, but as a man obsessed with a version of his past that he never got to complete, something that was missing. Even though this woman right in front of him was everything he thought would complete him, she was a relic of the past, she didn’t really exist.
― Leonardo Dicaprio on playing Gatsby
