The 10 best Gore Vidal quotes
Writer and thinker extraordinairre Gore Vidal died late last night in his Hollywood Hills home at the age of 86. He was a marvelous political commentator, as well as being a world renowned author and playwright. Luckily for him, he escaped just in time from having to endure something called “Chick-fil-a Appreciation Day.” Excellent timing as always, sir.
We’ve collected some of Gore Vidal’s best quotes, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
