Gatsby says, “You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock” (Fitzgerald 90). The green lantern is a famously remembered object in this novel because it represents Gatsby’s hope for his relationship with Daisy and his determination to pursue the dream of reuniting with Daisy, and subsequently becoming a member of the “old money” class himself. Gatsby eventually becomes overridden with trying to impress Daisy, which makes him look desperate rather than a mysterious man portrayed in beginning of the story.

This self-explanatory quote backs how the color green also symbolizes Gatsby’s downfall and not just his dream of becoming old money.
