This lead to him thinking everything was perfect and heading off to war, leaving Daisy behind. When he returned, he still had the same dream that he had once accomplished, but it had become unrealistic because Daisy was married. Gatsby’s dream began to cloud his reality and he didn’t give up on it. Despite it being unreachable, Gatsby’s dream continued to be very important to him, as he felt “that if he had searched harder, he might have found her” (152-153). He didn’t know how to win Daisy over, but that didn’t stop him from trying and searching.
She is the reason for his conflicting desires and his urge to speed up the engagement process. When he realizes he loves Ellen and confesses his love to her and his desire to marry her instead of May, it is too late. During his marriage to May he repeatedly tries to visit Ellen and to convince her to start an affair with him. Ellen however might not be concerned about society's opinion on her, but she is concerned about other people's feelings and she does not want to be the reason for their suffering. Newland claims to like her kindness on the other side he does not understand her reasoning against the affair.
This can also be seen when Daisy tells Gatsby, “Oh, you want too much!” (Fitzgerald 132). Daisy goes along with Gatsby’s plan to be together at first, but in the end she thinks twice about leaving Tom for Gatsby. The wealthy, even Daisy who professed her love for Gatsby, will never truly accept him as one of their own. Myrtle finds herself in a similar position because she believes Tom will leave Daisy to be with her. However, Tom claims, “[Daisy] is a Catholic and they don’t believe in divorce” (Fitzgerald 33).
Something of this nature is hard to ever forget and move on from. Daisy evidently thought she could move on by marrying Tom Buchanan, but in Jay’s case, he never lost that spark and love for Daisy. It is possible that this foreshadows Jay and Daisy committing an affair together because of the strength of that past passion when they finally meet again. Due to the emotions that Jay and Daisy shared in the past, they do not think about how their actions concerning their affair will affect those around them, mainly Tom Buchanan. In the following quote we can see how Jay and Daisy had an effect on
Daisy proves to be easily swayed and shallow from the start, if only Gatsby could have foresaw it before it affected when he returned from war expecting to have Daisy. Before Gatsby left for war, Daisy promised that she would wait for him, however, when Gatsby returned, he found the situation to be different from expected, yet was willing to persuade her to come back to him despite her disloyalty. “Daisy cannot wait for Gatsby to return from war. Since she desires a love which is defined rather than limbo; she quickly accepts her new love in Tom Buchanan. Her decision is to marry Tom” (Marling 7).
Christian never informs Roxane that Cyrano was the one who really wrote the letters because he dies in combat. Christian would have told if he had lived, but sadly Roxane never learns and has to live with the sorrow of her false love dying. Although ignorant, Christian is noble and honest. He tries to make Roxane love him for reasons other than the letters and even tries to tell her they were from Cyrano. Though he fails, knowing that what was happening was not right makes him honest, and doing his best to tell Roxane regardless of his love for her makes him noble.
She’s already gone’” (112). Mark Fossie thought that everything was going right for him, however he did not realize that Mary Anne would leave him because of the war.

James Harden reportedly pressured Khloe Kardashian to move Lamar Odom out of her house and the reality star complied to her beau 's request, but this didn 't sit well with Odom and he is furious that he will no longer live with his estranged wife. It seems a good idea for Kardashian to keep both men happy by giving them what she feels is the best for their relationships. The 31-year-old knows that if she wants to keep her romance alive with Harden, she must not give him any reason to be worried and doubt her loyalty. On the other hand, she can 't just completely shun Odom away from her life, so she reportedly rented a place for the troubled athlete to continue his recovery after being released from the hospital. “James is happy about the arrangement, but Lamar is pissed,” the source told HollywoodLife exclusively.
David Henry tries to give Norah the best she deserves, and did not want to lose Phoebe at a young age to devastate her. Although David tried his hardest for everything to become perfect, in the end of it all, the lie he withholds creates more damage and grieve then what would have occurred by keeping
Gatsby was a good person at heart but in flesh all you saw were lies, Daisy saw that in him too. In the end Gatsby’s hope on winning Daisy back was so high that ever time the phone rang or every corner he turned he looked and waited for her but she was nowhere to be seen. During his last day, last hours of breath he spent the time waiting for Daisy to call him and tell him that she was ready to run away with him and live happily ever after, “ I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn’t believe it would come and perhaps he no longer cared (Fitzgerald 169).” but she never did call. In his last few hours at the chance to run away and save himself for the death that was awaiting him he spent the time at home, in his pool waiting for her to call. When he took his final breath he was shot by mistake.
