Intro: American Dream is something to constantly aim for, but should never be achieved.
In Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, Gatsby has a very deep-rooted desire for Daisy and goes through any means necessary to achieve his dream of attaining Daisy. After Gatsby’s death, one of the more evident displays of Gatsby’s efforts to try and make himself “old money” is his “schedule” (173). Gatsby’s efforts to achieve his goal directly correspond to Fitzgerald’s message that the American Dream is something to constantly aim for, but should never be achieved. Furthermore, Fitzgerald also seems to be saying that the great value of a dream is not in achieving it, but in working and developing oneself in order to reach one’s dream.
