‘De wrok, godin, van Peleus’ zoon Achilles / moet u bezingen.’
Het eerste woord uit de Europese literatuur is afschuwelijk.
Homeros, ‘Ilias. Wrok in Troje’, vert. Patrick Lateur
“We used to make each other stronger, or at least I thought so. But that was a lie. We were making you stronger. And now I’m just weak and small, and I can’t stand that feeling any longer.” Claire Underwood
House of Cards, wrok in Washington D.C.
“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.”
“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.”
“Democracy is so overrated.”
“Proximity to power deludes some into thinking they wield it.”
“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.”
“The nature of promises, Linda, is that they remain immune to changing circumstances.”
“A great man once said, everything is about sex. Except sex. Sex is about power.”
“From this moment on you are a rock. You absorb nothing, you say nothing, and nothing breaks you.”
“I’ve always loathed the necessity of sleep. Like death, it puts even the most powerful men on their backs.”
“The best thing about human beings is that they stack so neatly.”
