Money can't buy you happiness, but I'd rather cry in a Bentley.

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic 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.”

It's so beautiful that it almost makes me want to believe in the "green light."

The word is "orgastic" .... and that's a whole different word! But, great piece!

Beautiful. I love The Great Batsby. You have done a great job. The unique brushstroke you used gives the piece a very impressionistic feel. It's incredible.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Great Job!
