Gatsby associates it with Daisy, and in the darkness he even reaches towards it with hope and yet despair. Though in addition Gatsby's search for Daisy is generally related to his search for the American dream. So the color of green is also a representation for more than just the green light. More specifically it is also the color of envy and money. These are two very prominent themes in the book. In relation to Gatsby, he is envious of Tom since he has something which he can never buy, Daisy. She has a lot of personal significance to Jay and for him to know that she sleeps beside a "no good man" each night infuriates him with envy and motivates him to strive even harder for his goal.

The path to damnation, though, is easy to find being very wide and beaten flat by all the travelers. The House of Holiness was built on rock foundations, in logical opposition with the House of Pride. This symbolizes that the holiness and righteousness are strong, everlasting and constant as the rock itself. It is also an allusion to St. Peter whose name means 'rock' and who is in the New Testament regarded as the guide to the people of God. The House of Pride, on the other hand, was built only on sand without any mortar and as such is only superficial, temporary, only an illusion.

However years later Gerald re-read the book and realizes that much of the book events were taken right from their lives back then. Much of Living Well is the Best Revenge is dedicated to disproving Tender is the Night. The characters Nicole and Dick Driver do however bear a strong resemblance to the Murphys although there is some exaggeration and poetic license taken with the characters. Sara, in Living Well is the Best Revenge, is described as a delicate beauty with golden hair.

"Hills Like White Elephants" By Ernest Hemingway: speculation based on details, of the couples negotiation subjects. Basic characterization of the couple included.
The soundest theory of the subject of negotiation is that it is about abortion. We are only given the girl's name in the story, her name is Jig. The "American" wants Jig to have an abortion as throughout the dialogue is attempts to convince Jig to go through with the operation, "It's really an awfully simple operation, Jig". The assumption that must be made is that the American wants the operation as he is afraid of responsibility that will come with the child.
