Anonymous asked: Upon your suggestion, and in anticipation of upcoming events, I've re-read The Great Gatsby. I feel that I, along with many men in today's American culture, feel a close kinship to Jay Gatsby--more specifically a strong sense of opportunities missed. Do you have advice on how to move past painful mistakes involving business, family, or, in Jay's case, romance? How can one avoid the fateful truth of: "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past"?
Take Fitzgerald’s advice with a twist. Beat on, against the current, ceaselessly into the future. Perseverance is a test of a man’s true character.
