Famous quotes containing the words gore vidal, vidal and/or evaluation:

    I’m all for bringing back the birch, but only between consenting adults.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
    —Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    Evaluation is creation: hear it, you creators! Evaluating is itself the most valuable treasure of all that we value. It is only through evaluation that value exists: and without evaluation the nut of existence would be hollow. Hear it, you creators!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
