Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter – to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning –

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. (9.152-153)

The problem with chasing the future is that you just end up chasing your own death. Andrew Marvell even wrote a poem about it.
