This quote was said by Frank Underwood in House of Cards (season 2), one of my favourite TV shows.
This is how I understand this quote:
You have the power to change something you don’t like
Often times we find ourselves suffering in situations we don’t really enjoy living in. Truth is that there is no reason to live so.
If something isn’t working out for you, if you are unhappy, the change it.
Turn over the table.
