He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete.

Similarities Between Titanic and The Great Gatsby

A young man who was born dirt poor

with plans of starting out fresh in New York

who falls in love with a woman named after a flower

and pretends to be someone he’s not along the way

and his true love is already taken by a huge douche

but he doesn’t care

then he dies in water

And Leo still doesn’t get a freaking Oscar
