Most people didnt know gatsby

Sometimes they came and went without having met Gatsby at all, came for the party with simplicity of heart that was its own ticket of admission.” Page 41

After tom exposed all of gatsbys secrets and daisy left him, he had lost everything he had to live for since his whole life revolved around daisy. After this moment gatsby had been broken down and he had nothing else to live for, he had ended up were he started as james gatz

This quote later explains why people didnt go to gatsbys funeral. Most people didnt know gatsby well enough, while some didnt even know what he looked like. This shows that gatsby was so obsessed with daisy and geting back with her again, he forgot to live his life and grow as a person. All he thought about was daisy , and he didnt socialize like a normal person would.

so he gave that up and only the dead dream fought on as the afternoon slipped away, trying to touch what was no longer tangible, struggling unhappily, un-despairingly, toward that lost voice across the room.” Page 134

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning—So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
