QUOTE  –
Francis Underwood: Do you really want to discuss “courage”, Claire? Because anyone can commit suicide, or spout they’re mouth in front of a camera. But you want to know what really takes courage? Keeping your mouth shut, no matter what you might be feeling. Holding it all together when the stakes are this high.
