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. – F. Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby. Chapter 1, Daisy Buchanan. This quote tells us that behind Daisy’s cheerful exterior there is a deep sadness inside her. And being married to an unfaithful husband doesn’t help.
