Quote of the Day (Playwright Lucy Prebble, on an Effect of Writing Not Achieved by Speaking)

“If you look to writing stuff down, and if you're driven to do that rather than to say something to somebody, maybe it's because saying it doesn't achieve the effect you want. And the writing it down, and separating it from yourself, gives you — for me, I think this is very true — the authority that you worry you lack in person.” —English playwright Lucy Prebble (Enron), quoted in Griselda Murray Brown, “Lunch with the FT: ‘It’s Not That Hard to Empathise With Putin,’” Financial Times, Sept. 28-29, 2019
