    In the novel "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the narrator, Nick Carraway, says the line "So we drove on toward death through the cooling twilight." This quote reflects Nick's contemplative and somewhat pessimistic outlook on life.

This quote showcases Nick's introspective nature and his ability to perceive the darker aspects of the world around him.
