From the moment it first appeared on Netflix, "House of Cards" has been a smash hit. The star-studded show's drama and intensity are part of what makes it so wonderful, but perhaps the show's best quality is its well-written script. In every episode, you can count on at least a few memorable words. There have been many such moments on the show, so picking the best quotes is no easy task. Still, there are a number of lines that really stand out above the rest, and here they are.

1. "Friends make the worst enemies"

2. "Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries"

3. "Generosity is its own form of power"

4. "Of all the things I hold in high regard, rules are not one of them"

5. "I will march forward, even if I have to do so alone"

6. "Do not start a war you know you're going to lose"

7. "The only problem with common sense is that it's so common"

8. "If you don't like how the table is set, turn over the table"

9. "There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted"

10. "I will win and I will leave a legacy"
