Gatsby 's chances of winning over Daisy come to an end once the summer ends and he does not accept the fact that she is going to be moving away. To enhance his chances, Gatsby tries to go back in time, which he only understands. Emerson believes one 's memory will not be able to uphold all recent enjoyments and there is a reason we live in the present. To feel better about himself, Gatsby is known for his magnificent parties. Everyone who attends his parties knows of Gatsby and that is what Gatsby cares about.
‘100 $Bill’ and ‘Young and Beautiful’ both spoke for Gatsby strongly as they were played in a manner to present him in separate lights and represented both his hopes and his fears. His disregard for riches is easily expressed in the song 100 $ Bill as he pays no attention to the amount he spends in the secret bar or on his extravagant parties, it also shows how he takes business as a pastime not a necessity. However the song Young and Beautiful, brings up how he wants Daisy to love him even when he doesn’t have the riches anymore, which is both a hope and a fear as he is unsure of how far she will allow their ‘affair’ to go. The song also brings up bringing her love to heaven with her, which can be said for Gatsby but does Daisy really want to go with him. 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.
The reality is that he and Daisy would never get back together, he would realize that she is happily married with a child, and he is not part of her class. Nick is the only one that understands the reality in the book. He states: His is proving that Nick is the only one in the book with the eyes of reality. However Gatsby’s illusions are now his reality. Because of all the parties, the drinking, trying to get Daisy, and all the cheating and lying Gatsby created an illusion that is the life of misery and uncertainty that turns into his reality thus leading him to lose his illusions.
That’s what I get for marrying a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen of a ——” (Fitzgerald 16). When Daisy says this it shows the readers that she is truly unhappy and doesn’t like being with someone like Tom. This also has an underlying meaning, Just like Tom never meant to physically hurt her he didn't mean to emotionally hurt her either. Many people used others just to get what they wanted. Daisy used Tom for this, even when she didn’t want to be with him, and the consequences such as pain were not necessarily worth the reward of money.
As well as the value of a human life during these times of war, but the insanity of war and Heller 's solution to insanity is the idea of "there is always a catch" in life is shown to a dramatic extent.

Gatsby’s limitless love for Daisy again is shown after Myrtle’s death when Gatsby decides, “I want to wait here until Daisy goes to bed,” (Fitz 145).
