Having Nick invite Daisy over so that Gatsby can see her

Jay Gatsby is a good, honorable man. He's honest (though sometimes shady and vague) and ambitious. He is completely devoted to Daisy - he'd do anything for her. He also is very true to his vision of Daisy. He sees only the good in her. However, Gatsby lives in the past. He is unable to move on from five years previous, when Daisy loved him, and see that she is with Tom now and has loved someone else since he went to war. He is unable to see the bad in Daisy. He is also stuck on his dreams of her. He fantasized and dreamed about her five years, making her seem greater than she actually was. Then when he really saw her he wasn't able to see anything different. Gatsby spends his money recklessly, (mostly to appeal to Daisy through means of lavish parties) and uses Nick's friendship to get closer to what he wants -Daisy.

When Nick meets Gatsby standing in front of Daisy's house after the accident, the conversation goes like this (quoting exactly): Nick asks "'Was Daisy driving?' [Gatsby says] 'Yes,' he said after a moment, 'but of course I'll say I was. You see, when we left New York she was very nervous and she though it would steady her to drive'".

The green lights symbolize the future he wishes to have, but only regarding Daisy. The lights were intended for Gatsby to see upon his return from the army but after Daisy is married and unaware of his return, they only shine the light of hope into Gatsby.
