(last lines) Nick Carraway: 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.
Jay Gatsby: I knew it was a great mistake for a man like me to fall in love...
Nick Carraway: You can't repeat the past. Jay Gatsby: Can't repeat the past? Nick Carraway: No... Jay Gatsby: Why, of course you can... of course you can.
