The given line in the novel has been used by the Gatsby. This term was used by Gatzby in a conversation with Nick Caraway. When Gatzby told the false story related to his life to Nick Caraway, he wanted to state the desire of Gatzby that he is someone who is not only rich, but also the member of the society. Gatzby further said that he doesn’t want himself to be the one among the strangers as he drift.

This kind of line said by Gatzby reflects that he is someone who is very self-conscious about his own self. He is such a person who is rich and he is also the important member in the society. Gatzby is a person who is well aware of the fact that the Nick and Daisy are both cousins of each other. Therefore, he ensured that Nick knows about him well. In order to do so, he also lies about himself. He boasts that he is a very good person. Gatzby wants to make sure that Nick carries a good image about him. He just wants to demonstrate that how good is he as a person. He wants Nick to believe that he is very good and ideal American boy. In order to boast about himself, he also tells lie to Nick. He clearly specifies through the saying that he just any normal person but he is the kind of person who is respected by the society and community (Fitzgerald, 1925).
