the green light.

In the novel Great Gatsby, Jay gatsby saw a green light at the love of his life, daisy's house. To jay Gatsby that light was a sign that said she was waiting for him.
He had based all of his hope on the fact that she left that light on.
There are many other meanings for the greenlight in life. One such meaning is that its time to go. whether that means taking chances and trying something new, or leaving everything you know in the pursuit of a better life. And in the case of Daisy, her green light was marrying Tom even though she was still in love with Gatsby.
Another character, Jordan Baker, takes every green light that comes her way. She is a flapper, and would lie, cheat, and steal to get to the top. However, she shows a soft spot when she falls in love with Nick.
all of this i decided for myself. that is my source
