"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
- Romans 8:38-39 (ESV)
"It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further… And one fine morning -
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Love the way F. Scott Fitzgerald writes and these two sentences are the perfect literary end to possibly the most beautiful novel ever written; they absolutely capture the feelings evoked by the fate of Jay Gatz.
