”You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock,’ he says to Daisy. Seen from across the water - and everything else - that separates him from Daisy, the green light offers Gatsby a suitably inaccessible focus for his yearning, something to give definition to desire while indefinitely deferring consummation, something to stretch his arms towards, as he does, rather than circle his arms around, as he tries to. The fragile magic of the game depends on keeping the green light at a distance…lights too closely approached may well lose their supernatural lustre and revert to unarousing ordinariness. You can wish only the the star you can’t reach.’ - Tony Tanner on The Great Gatsby

Elizabeth’s spirits soon rising to playfulness again, she wanted Mr. Darcy to account for his having ever fallen in love with her. “How could you begin?” said she. “I can comprehend your going on charmingly, when you had once made a beginning; but what could set you off in the first place?”
