Scott FitzgeraldSupplemental Book existingven while we feel that with another part of ourselves we slip away from our loved one s reach and start needing new horizons new lands to Hark! The Herald Angels Scream explore new hearts to conuer Is there such thing as loving only with a part of yourself or is love something that sweeps you completely and you love with your whole being Do humans have the potential the depth to love absolutely and completely Or is love fragmented like we are fragmented Is it possible for the part that loves and the part that stays indifferent orven hates to be two sides of the same coin two faces of the same feeling Dick Diver goes on loving his wife but a part of him grows cold This terrible contradiction comes not from weakening of his love for her but from his inability to connect to her Are love and connection the same thing I thought so I am not so sure any He loves her but feels disconnected from her He moved on through the rain demoniac and frightened the passions of many men inside him and nothing simple that he could see If we are ready to love without connection does that make our love Colloquial Polish: The Complete Course for Beginners extraordinarily strong or not strongnough Can a man who loves a woman whole heartedly accept only half of her fragments of her isn t the strongest kind of love the one that compels us to ither have a full possession of somebody or walk away because we love them too much to bear to have only fragments of them Or is the strongest love the one because of which we are ready to make any sacrifices and accept ven the smallest particles when Bidadari yang Mengembara even the smallest piece is better than nothing when we are ready to sacrifice our life our pride our veryssence Dick Diver feels like he has lost an Red River Girl essential part of himself a part that leaves any real feeling in him incomplete If we sacrifice too much for the loved one so much as we no longer feel as ourselves can love survive Does true love transcends all Which is the stronger The love we bear for the other person or our sense of self When the sense of self vanishes do we keep loving Would Dick have been happier had he left Nicole Would he have been happy with Rosemary I think not When we love somebody we bear all their baggage their pain overwhelms us it becomes a part of us but the same is valid for their joy forverything amazing they are and La strada delle croci everything amazing they give us We are overwhelmed but the mere fact that we love someone so deeply as to let ourselves be overwhelmed gives us a sense of security and belonging and fullness He knew that the price of his intactness was incompleteness They made no love that day but when he left her outside the sad door on the Zurichsee and she turned and looked at him he knew her problem was one they had together for good now Is his love for her weakness or strength Or both When we truly love how much do we belong to ourselves and how much to the other person There were now no plans than if he had arbitrarily made some indissoluble mixture with atoms joined and inseparable you could throw it all out but never again could they fit back into atomic scale As he held her and tasted her and as she curved in further and further toward him new to herself drowned andngulfed in love he was thankful to have an xistence at all if only as a reflection in her wet yes I believe that no two people are absolutely alike or absolutely different therefore there is no such thing as an absolute harmony or absolute disconnection The relationship between Dick and Nicole however strong or weak keeps on living and tearing him apart When the relationship does not bring us happiness when the pain prevails is it still love Does true love mean that no matter the circumstances we can always find some happiness some spark there Or do we love The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth even when the passion no longerxists and desperation and mptiness fill our hearts and minds and hang over us and touch us like a pale cold sun so alike and unlike the real one that once kept it all alive but has now melted and disappeared into space leaving us merely with the memory It was not so much infatuation as a romantic memory She was still his girl Tender Is the Night left me incredibly satisfied and yearning at the same time I wish Scott Fitzgerald had developed Nicole s character Or Rosemary s But with Dick himself being the main focus and how his love and longing pain and loneliness affect his life and personality they were of a catalyst for him than actual characters in the novel I think that had Fitzgerald given them personality this would
