Quote of the Day – Gore Vidal on Gossip and History


I was sad to learn of the death of Gore Vidal last night. He was a great deep thinker, always challenged authority, and was an all-around smarty pants.

Everybody likes a bit of gossip to some point, as long as it’s gossip with some point to it. That’s why I like history. History is nothing but gossip about the past, with the hope that it might be true. – Gore Vidal
