Gore Vidal died Tuesday night at age 86. The Daily Beast has compiled a selection of some of his best quotes:
"Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn."
"Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically by definition be disqualified from ever doing so."
"Fifty percent of people won't vote, and fifty percent don't read newspapers. I hope it's the same fifty percent."
"The United States was founded by the brightest people in the country— and we haven't seen them since."
