The main basis of this story is that Gatsby is in love with a married woman, Daisy Buchanan, and Gatsby goes to an ambitious extent to win her over. Gatsby’s love for Daisy begins when he meets her early in his life during the war. They were both in love with each other but Daisy could not marry Gatsby because he was too poor. Gatsby then left the war to attend Oxford and Daisy married a rich man named Tom Buchanan. After legendary actions in the war and successful business opportunities, Gatsby vowed to become vastly rich and win
However, Myrtle’s ambition was money, because when Wilson neither produced riches nor at the very least, gave her the love initially wanted, she turned to Tom to receive them both. Myrtle was a “gold-digger”, but she also believed that he would genuinely love her and pick her over Daisy, even though Tom gave no indication of doing so. Like Daisy, breathed out wealth, Myrtle had breathed out vitality and sensuality, hoping for Tom to chose her as his love and for him to give her riches and luxury. As for Daisy, much like Myrtle, was also chasing both money and love, at different points in her life. Daisy, initially wanted love, and she displayed that, by first waiting for Gatsby and then once again when she was newly married with Tom.
He drank excessively, only the most superb drinks of course, or he served large amounts to large quantities of people. Gatsby, following his creator’s perspective of romanticism, was all about finding his love. Gatsby had a forbidden love named Daisy who was married, but this did not stop Gatsby from achieving what he wanted. He thrived off of his lust for her and her world of seduction that captivated him. Gatsby had a belief that he may win Daisy’s heart if he was able to possess wealth.
The desire for love impairs the moral judgment of the individuals, especially Gatsby in the novel. As much as the readers of 1984 wish to cast Gatsby as a great man for his love for Daisy, his attachment to Daisy is actually nothing more than an illusion as he cannot distinguish his feeling as desire or love. True love is a deep attachment to someone in an unconditional and a sacrificial manner where one is selfless to put the other before oneself and is understanding of the other’s flaws. Yet, Gatsby possesses none of the characteristics. Although Gatsby knows that Daisy is married to Tom Buchanan, he hosts dazzling parties and even “[buys] the [mansion] so that Daisy would be just across the bay” (Fitzgerald, 78).
After they have figured out that love is irreplaceable, they give up on the attachment to burgled materials. Although love is human basic need, as one of the famous proverbs “Love is blind.” Goes, we tend to become blind and lose common sense when we fall in love. Love is basically created by the influence of our ideals. Therefore, in order to foster a strong love between a couple, to ignore realistic things
But when the two are reunited after nick sets up a meeting and when she sees Gatsby’s house she learns that she is rich and becomes attracted to him again simply for the fact that he has money. Gatsby is a very good example for this theme and his actions show just how far he is willing to go to get what he wants. Before the war Gatsby was in love with daisy but he was poor and she moved on by marrying tom who was wealthy. But when Gatsby gets back and learns this and he does everything he possible could to become rich in the hopes of attracting daisy and making
But this point of view for someone who has never ever taste love or shared love, when they look as a spectator to my love they find it as absurd or silly. The close look at Marcel’s approach will help us to know that certain human phenomena like love hope and fidelity can only understand only when they are accepted as important experiences for the understanding of human being. Marcel considers love as something concrete which even erosions of time and death cannot destroy. He says: “The questions turns upon our knowing whether the inevitable erosions of time and death can never ever destroy that by which this being we love is truly a being.” Obviously Marcel tries to say that value that we give for ones we love can never be lost by time and death. I think death cannot stop us to love our dear ones.
While all objects may become legitimate objects of love, we must recognise that each object of our love can only provide us with so much happiness and satisfaction. Saint Augustine further argues that love becomes disordered when one expects more from the object of love than what it is capable of giving. Our love becomes disordered when the manner with which we attach ourselves to the object of our love and our expectations from this loving act exceed what the object of our love can actually provide us. He also cautions that disordered love leads to many, if not all, forms of human pathology. This tendency towards disordered love is common for fans, or people whose objects of love are celebrities, public figures, or people who are generally inaccessible to them.
Anger is not always wrong, but love doesn’t lose control. Once when I was very angry with one of my sons, friends, or with my partner, letting cutting words fling from my mouth, a small voice was saying inside of me: “Hey, you’re not loving.” The voice was right. What we have to do is to apologize, and keep the aura of love lives on. Love keeps no record of wrongs Keeping score and getting even is destructive. Peter says that “love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).
Memories with your love one is very important so as long as you can, you express your feelings, love and dedication to them. I therefore that “Love is blind”. Love is you love your person with no reasons and you can’t explain it. I’m very touched and emotional to the part on how they become happy, by loving their weaknesses and trust to each other. In a relationship, no matter what happen you will do your best just to protect your love one.
