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 further... And one fine morning... So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaslessly into the past. F. Scott Fitzgerald ~ The Great Gatsby ~
