Quote of the Day (‘House of Cards’ Michael Dobbs, on the ‘Difference Between Writing and Politics’)

“There’s a difference between writing and politics. In politics, if somebody shouts at you, you get very angry, and you decide you want to get revenge, but as a writer, you go through pain and you can use that pain. It doesn’t mean you’re not feeling it, but you can analyze that pain to make you better as a writer.” —Michael Dobbs quoted in Alexandra Wolfe, “Weekend Confidential: Michael Dobbs--The British Politician and ‘House of Cards’ Creator Prefers the Writing Life,” The Wall Street Journal, Feb. 28-March 1, 2015
