Only Us – – Small, Solitary

House of Cards - Kevin Spacey

There’s no solace
above or below.
Only us —
battling one another.
I pray to myself,
for myself.

~ House of Cards, 1×12.

  1. I’ve been watching the British version of House Of Cards (which is amazing btw). I can hear Spacey saying this (or his UK counterpart Ian Richardson) – though I question just how ‘small’ his character really believes himself to be.


  2. and we are but a speck in the larger scheme of things…


  3. totally opposite to my point of view


  4. I’ve never seen this show, but I can imagine. Kevin Spacey rocks.


  5. Ummm..

    Having just written a post about the HOC ending, I enjoyed re-visiting this quote. Thanks for the reminder.


  7. Only us, small but larger than life, solitary yet part of the collective human race, striving and arriving, battling one another foolishly … because we are one another.
