Through this twilight universe Daisy began to move again with the season;

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VIII) on Rap Genius


In “high society,” the social season brings obligations with it. Daisy saw in Tom a life she was accustomed to and more than that, security. You have Gatsby, constantly moving, not in control, at the whim of an “impersonal government,” and at his foil, the stern, secure, Tom Buchanan. He was wealthy, and he was in control.
