    “Power is a lot like real estate, it’s all about location, location,
    location. Closer you are to the source, the higher your property value.
    Centuries from now, when people watch this footage, who will they see
    smiling just at the edge of the frame.”
     
    “Well a lot of mess I did. Making plans, very little sleep. Take a step
    back, look at the bigger picture. That’s how you devour a whale, one
    bite at a time. Give and take. Welcome to Washington.”
     
    They’ve done us a great favor. We’re no longer bond by allegiances. We
    serve no one. We live by one rule, and one rule only: Never again will
    we allow ourselves to be put in such a position.
     
    There’re 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. Moments like this require someone who will act or do
    the unpleasant thing or the necessary thing.
    痛苦分两种,一种让你变得更加坚强;另一种毫无意义,只让你图受折磨。

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. I have no patience for useless things. Moments like
this require someone who will act or do the unpleasant thing or the
necessary thing. There, no more pain.

Give and take.

【EP01】

A person’s character isn’t determined by how he or she enjoys victory
but rather how he or she endures defeat. Nothing can help us endure dark
times better than our faith.

    • Frank:“There are two kinds of pain, 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. Moments like this require someone who
      will act, or do the unpleasant thing, or the necessary thing.”
    • Frank:“I love that woman. I love her more than sharks love
      blood.”
    • Frank:”Oh, is foreplay over?”
          – Zoe: “I read somewhere that JFK never lasted more than three
      minutes.”
          – Frank:”The point been?”
          – Zoe: “Time is precious. Powerful people don’t have the luxury of
      foreplay.”
    • Catherine:”Kern is a boy scout.”
          – Frank:”Nobody is a boy scout, not even boy scouts.”
    • Russo:”It was just this one time, Frank, I swear to God.”
          – Frank:”Than you must hold God in every low esteem, because we both
      know that’s a lie.”
    • Frank:”Power’s a lot like real estate, it’s all about location,
      location, location. The closer you are to the source, the higher your
      property value.”

Forward! That is the battle cry. Leave ideologies for the Armchair
General, does me no good.

【EP02】

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

    • Frank:“Such a waste of time. He chose money over power- in this
      town, a mistake that nearly everyone makes. Money is the McMansion in
      Sarasota that starts falling apart after ten years. Power is the old
      stone building that stands for centuries.”
    • Frank:”What a martyr craves more than anything is a sword to fall
      on, so you sharpen the blade, hold it at just the right angle, and then
      3, 2,1.”

It’s the number of days since April 4, 1999.As of this morning, that’s
5185.The bigger that number gets, the more it frightens me, because I
know all it takes is one drink to go back to zero. Most people see fear
as a weakness. It can be. Sometimes for my job, I have to put fear in
other people. I know that’s not right. But if I’m honest, like the
fourth step asks us to be, I have to be ruthless, because failure is not
an option. The same goes for my sobriety. I have to be ruthless with
myself. I have to use my fear. I t makes me stronger. Like everyone in
this room, I can’t control who I am. But I can control the zero. Fuck
the zero.

【EP04】

I must not lose my resolve. I will march forward, even if I have to do
so…alone.

    • Frank:“I know you take a lot of pride in your manhood, Bob, and
      it’s impressive, but as big as it is, Linda can still shut the door on
      it.”
    • Frank:”You see, Freddy believes that if a fridge falls off a
      minivan, you better swerve out of its way. I believe it’s a fridge’s job
      to swerve out of mine.”

Speculation is a poor form of investment.

【EP05】

Not an easy thing to say no to the most powerful man in the free world.
Sometimes the only way to gain your superior’s respect is to defy him.

    • Claire:” You know what Francis said to me when he proposed? I
      remember his exact words. He said, ‘Claire, if all you want is
      happiness, say no. I’m not gonna give you a couple of kids and count the
      days until retirement. I promise you’ll be freedom from that. I promise
      you’ll never be bored.’ You know he was the only man. And there were a
      lot of others proposed. But he was the only one who understood me. He
      didn’t pu me on some pedestal. He knew that I didn’t want to be adored
      or coddled. So he took my hand and put a ring on it. Because he knew I’d
      say yes. He’s a man who know how to take he wants.”

Friends make the worst enemies.

The rational and the irrational complement each other. Individually,
they are far less powerful.

Proximity to power deludes some into believing they wield it. I put an
end to that sort of thinking before it begins.

It only takes ten seconds to crush a man’s ambitions. I need to take
care that I protect mine.

Once someone is exposed, they’re at your mercy.

We may have our disagreements, Linda, but that doesn’t mean we can’t
look out for each other.

A great man once said that everything in life is about sex. Except sex,
sex is about power.
