My American Dream

In my eyes the great American Dream is having enough money to get by simply because if I'm in debt I get depressed. The other part to the american dream is going through life with someone you love and do everything  you can with them cause someday you or them wont be there when you want/ or need them.

Gatsby's/ 1920's  American Dream

The American Dream in the 1920's is to make as much money as possible and to show it off. Big houses, fancy cars, and women.

“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Chapter 2 Page 36

Example #1

The variety's of life are like the variety's of this picture lots of options your the one that decides to capture the moment. For example when Gatsby left home to start a new life for himself.

Example #2

Life is like a man in a suit there's so many ways to do the same thing. Also its always good to be different. For example when the butler is squeezing the fruit they could just do it by hand but you got to get the maximum amount of efficiency out of the same amount of time.

Example #3

There is just somethings that you got to do by yourself and there is others you need someone to help ya along. For example when nick invites Daisy over for tea and Gatsby is nervous so he says he is going to go into town. When talking to a (friend) its better to do it alone and in private no one wants to be that odd 3 rd wheel that's my option any way. Then to continue he invites him to his house also just so he isn't alone with her.

Example #4

In the end you die still wanting what you wanted your hole life. You always want more and more. At the end of the book Gatsby gets out of the pool and just then the phone rings and he thinks its Daisy and then he gets shot, but it wasn't her it was nick. He died thinking that she wanted him but all he ever wanted was to spend the rest of her life with her.
