Gatsby fell in love with Daisy’s grace and charm; therefore, Gatsby lied to her about his life in order to convince her that he was good enough.

Gatsby, a man who had achieved so many of his dreams; a great house, lots of money, and even knew the rich and famous, still needed one thing to be happy and that thing was the love of his life, Daisy. Daisy, the prize that Gatsby wanted for five long years, is awarded to him when Daisy tells Gatsby she loves him. Gatsby's happiness was ephemeral and lacking because soon Daisy would retract her love and give it to Tom, taking away Gatsby's ultimate dream. When Nick, one of Gatsby’s few true friends, visits him after Daisy went back to Tom, he notices something very strange about Gatsby’s house. When he arrives "there was an inexplicable amount of dust everywhere" (Fitzgerald p147).
He threw ridiculously large and excessive parties with all different kinds of people. Nick even lists the many different people that came and notes that “All these people came to Gatsby’s house in the summer,” to demonstrate the wide variety of people that Gatsby lured to his parties. The reasoning behind attracting so many people was to either lure Daisy or to lure people that she knew. Gatsby was very successful at this because he attracted Jordan Baker, Daisy’s childhood friend, and Nick Carraway, Daisy’s cousin. He worked with them in order to reunite with Daisy, and up until that point his plan was flawless.

He has no hobby except for being desperately in love with a woman who he knew once, but doesn’t anymore.

He knows that she’s married now, but it doesn’t stop him trying to woo her. He doesn’t think about Tom’s feelings for Daisy.

Though time, oceans, and culture left us feeling despair at times, the fire in our hearts that is love, has given us the powerful force within that is hope. In the novel Persuasion, by Jane Austen, many characters experience circumstances of great pain and despair, as well as circumstances of promising hope. At times I thought I wouldn’t be able to handle the pain when we said goodbye. The last kiss we shared and as we finally parted, I would leap forward for one more kiss. And one more.
However, when I picked up the book, it was almost the saddest story I’ve ever read. Different from readers of the last century, shocking, pornographic, immoral are no longer the most frequently adjectives to describe the feeling after reading the book. It would rather be beautiful, poetic and intriguing for us readers. Driven by the irresistible desire, Humbert Humbert guides us through the most innocent land of love with its filthiest means. “You have to be an artist and a madman, a creature of infinite melancholy, with a bubble of hot poison in your loins and a super-voluptuous flame permanently aglow in your subtle spine.” In his epilogue, Nabokov states that Lolita has no moral, while Humbert is the classical hero with his tragic flaw.
