F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned
In two weeks it’ll be the longest day in the year….Do you always watch for the longest day of the year and then miss it? I always watch for the longest day in the year and then miss it.
