Frank Underwood’s best lines

Because House of Cards wouldn't be the same without the wisdom of America's most ruthless politician...

“Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I cannot respect someone who doesn’t see the difference.”

“I love that woman. I love her more than sharks love blood.”

“Friends make the worst enemies.”

“Power is a lot like real estate. It’s all about location, location, location. The closer you are to the source, the higher your property value.”

“There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that’s only suffering. I have no patience for useless things.”

“There’s no better way to overpower a trickle of doubt than with a flood of naked truth.”

“For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy. There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted.”

“The road to power is paved with hypocrisy, and casualties. Never regret.”

 “A great man once said, everything is about sex. Except sex. Sex is about power.”

“I’ve always loathed the necessity of sleep. Like death, it puts even the most powerful men on their backs.”

“Shake with your right hand, but hold a rock in your left.”

“The best thing about human beings is that they stack so neatly.”

 “Democracy is so overrated.”
