"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning-
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
-The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

When I first saw Mia on the set I thought she was ravishing, just breathtaking. The New England summer sun was hitting her face under this chiffon lilac hat and she looked just like my father’s Daisy should look.
Frances Scott Fitzgerald (daughter of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald), after visiting The Great Gatsby set in 1974 (via lovelymiafarrow)
We are all queer fish, queerer behind our faces and voices than we want any one to know or than we know ourselves. When I hear a man proclaiming himself an ‘average, honest, open fellow,’ I feel pretty sure that he has some definite and perhaps terrible abnormality which he has agreed to conceal- and his protestation of being average and honest and open is his way of reminding himself of his misprision.
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Rich Boy”
Of course all life is a process of breaking down, but the blows that do the dramatic side of the work— the big sudden blows that come, or seem to come, from outside— the ones you remember and blame things on and, in moments of weakness, tell your friends about, don’t show their effect all at once.
