point counterpoint

A Quote by Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald on innocence, nature of love, love, point counterpoint, and red herring

"Oh, you want too much!" she cried to Gatsby. "I love you now—isn't that enough? I can't help what's past." She began to sob helplessly. "I did love him once—but I loved you too."
Gatsby's eyes opened and closed.
"You loved me too?" he repeated.
"Even that's a lie," said Tom savagely. "She didn't know you were alive. Why—there're things between Daisy and me that you'll never know, things that neither of us can ever forget."

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 - 1940)
