Daisy's Life Expressed by Quote

GATSBY-TNGLGO

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.

What does this quote from Daisy reveal about her life?

A

Daisy drinks too much, especially in the summer, and often misses entire days of her life to alcohol consumption.

B

Daisy is always waiting for something or searching for something to look forward to, but even when what she is waiting for arrives, she is too distracted to notice.

C

Daisy has many plans, and many responsibilities. She wishes there were more hours in a day. When the longest day of the year happens, she usually misses it because she’s so busy.

D

Daisy hates the dark and wishes it would never come. She is so engrossed in her fear of the dark that she cannot even enjoy days of extended daylight.

E

Daisy looks forward to the summer every year, but forgets all of the social obligations that come with warm weather and longer days, so that she can never really enjoy herself.
