The Great Gatsby by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. Best Quotes. Life begins with the summer and precisely, we are in summer now. Enjoy the reading!


The Great Gatsby. 2013 movie.

In 1925, The Great Gatsby by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald was published. From the very beginning, the novel was a success. It has been described as the icon of the American Dream: idealism and excesses, a new world full of decadent social behaviors, prohibition and jazz. The main character is the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his romantic passion for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. Time and love are some of the central topics. Here, our selection of quotes. Have a nice day, Yareah friends!

“I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.”

“The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.”

Yes, time…, and time reflected in some personalities, who are mirrors of our deepest feelings. Don’t you like next quote:

“It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor.”

“There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.”

And how about love? Love is fool and only a great author like Fitzgerald can try to explain its consequences:

“I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”

“I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.”

“Angry, and half in love with her, and tremendously sorry, I turned away.”

“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”

Definitely: “Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!”

The novel is placed in the fictional town of West Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922 and it has been brought to the big screen several times: in 1974 by Jack Clayton (Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Sam Waterston, Bruce Dern, Karen Black, Scott Wilson, and Lois Chiles) and in 2013 by Baz Luhrmann (Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke).

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
