Notice how many times Fitzgerald uses the words hope or dream.

This novel is based upon hopes and dreams..... the desire to make dreams come true, so hopes can be realized. Gatsby's dream was to be wealthy enough that he'd be deemed worthy of Daisy. He accomplished his dream of wealth and placed his hopes on wealth (and love) to achieve his ultimate purpose, which was to marry the girl he fell in love with, so many years before.
