Character Idea Evidence
Nick Illusion – You can never fully hide from your true self “I am one of the few honest people that I have ever known”

“I thought you were rather an honest, straightforward person. I thought it was your secret pride.”

“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy”

Daisy Illusion – Not everyone is who they appear to me. “Her voice is full of money,” he said suddenly.”

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made. . . .”

She vanished into her rich house, into her rich, full life, leaving Gatsby

“They weren’t happy… and yet they weren’t unhappy either.”

“Her frightened eyes told that whatever intentions, whatever courage, she had had, were definitely gone.”

“Just mention my name. Or present a green card. I’m giving out green ——”

Gatsby Illusion – you can not reinvent yourself “paid a high price for living too long with a single dream.”

“He threw dust into your eyes just like he did in Daisy’s”

“Can’t repeat the past?” he cried incredulously. “Why of course you can!”

“I keep it always full of interesting people, night and day.”
