This is one of the reasons West Eggers are not accepted by East Eggers. Since Gatsby is not born into wealth, he won’t be able to live in East Egg. Gatsby throughout the story is never satisfied with the things he has and always wants more even when he made a fortune, Daisy is a trophy to have in Gatsby’s eyes. Gatsby’s life is a success story everyone wants, yet to him, his heroism in the Great War and the wealth he gained at a young age is nothing to him. He has dedicated himself to a girl he did not even know for all that
He seems to bypasses her wants there as well as in the confessing of who Daisy really loves and we never see him ask her. Allowing your own dreams cloud your vision and block others doesn’t always lead you down the best path, as he becomes very selfish when it comes to

If Tom cared about Daisy he would not be seeing other women, it was also revealed that Myrtle was not the first person Tom had an affair with, which just proves this even further. The actions Tom takes near the end of the story show how hypocritical Tom really is. For some reason, Tom is irritated that Gatsby and Daisy seem to have feelings for each other, but his affair with Myrtle is completely fine with him. To Tom, there is nothing wrong with him cheating on Daisy, but Daisy wanting to be with Gatsby is a horrid thing, even

That very concept of their love being forbidden, also made it all the more intense, for the idea of having a prohibited love, like William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, made it all the more desirable. Gatsby was remembering back five years to when Daisy was not married and they were together: His heart began to beat faster as Daisy 's white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his
As he grows-up, he uses his wealth and power to build and buy his own happiness (love). His powerful status separates him from others throughout the years, and his life ends in loneliness at Xanadu. (Fig.2) The sad truth is when he is surrounded by nothing but his possessions, poor substitutions instead of his real friends/family that were once part of his life are nowhere to be found. (Fig, 1) (Citizen Kane,

That feeling is still there but just his money isn’t enough to bring it all back and make her leave him. In the story Nick and Gatsby have a conversation where Gatsby says “"Can 't repeat the past?" [...]"Why of course you can!" He looked around him wildly, as if the past were lurking here in the shadow of his house, just out of reach of his hand.
Later he meets Gatsby and Jordan baker, a friend of Daisy’s, at one of his parties. Jordan tells Nick about Gatsby 's love for Daisy. Daisy and Gatsby meet when Gatsby was in the army and he was known as James Gatz. They shared the same feeling for each other but since gatsby couldn’t financially support Daisy they never saw each other again.

The example shows how Jonas was naive because he did not know all of the evils that the world had created by means of color. He did not know the effects of color on the world throughout history. Eventually, jonas’s naivety gave way to wisdom after he had learned about the previous world. Wisdom was shown later in the novel after Jonas learned about both the freedoms and restrictions of the old world.
