I'm not sure that's well stated

"It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance that one may come across four or five times in life. It faced - or seemed to face - the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you, with an irresistable prejudice in your favour. It understood you so far as you would like to be understood, believed in you as far as you would like to believe in yourself." - Nick Carraway describing Jay Gatsby's greatness through his smile and reassuring persona.

"The trust was that Jay Gatsby, of West Egg, Long island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. He was a Son of God -- a phrase which, if it means anything, means just that -- and he must be about his Father's business, the service of a vast vulgar and meretricious beauty. So he invented just the sort of Jay Gatsby that a seventeen year old boy would be likely to invent and to this conception he was faithful to the end."
