Fran Lebowitz: America Hates Smart People

From "Public Speaking":

America's always hated eggheads. When they invent the term "elite", they don't mean rich. America loves rich people. They mean smart. "We don't want these elites in here, we don't want any smart people in here."

  1. Just bookmarking another great Fran Lebowitz quote from the movie:

    "I have a tremendous resistance to authority, even if it's my own."
