There's no freedom quite like the freedom of being constantly underestimated.
"Jeg har barn som liker å stjele. Jeg har barn som ikke tenker på å stjele det ene eller den andre, og jeg har barn som tåler å stjele bare fordi de vet at de ikke har noe annet å gjøre. Men ingen - og jeg mener ingen - har noen gang vært sulten på det som denne gutten. Hvis han hadde en blodig flenge tvers over halsen og en healer prøvde å sy den igjen, ville Lamora stjele nålen og tråden og dø leende. Han ... stjeler for mye."
“Some day, Locke Lamora,” he said, “some day, you’re going to fuck up so magnificently, so ambitiously, so overwhelmingly that the sky will light up and the moons will spin and the gods themselves will shit comets with glee. And I just hope I’m still around to see it.”
“Oh please,” said Locke. “It’ll never happen.”
"That's cheating," said Locke. "That's six times in a row, and you've had the Duke's hand for two of them." "Of course I'm cheating," said Chains. "Game's no fun unless you cheat. When you figure out how I'm cheating, then I'll know you're starting to improve."
"You're all liars," said Locke as their eyes turned expectantly to him. "We're only doing this because nobody else in Camorr is good enough to pull this off, and nobody else is dumb enough to get stuck doing it in the first place." "Bastard!" They shouted in unison forgetting their surroundings for a bare moment.
As he (Locke) left the receiving room, he allowed himself a brief smirk of pleasure; two guards now looked almost as frightened of him as the waiter did. It was strange how readily authority could be conjured from nothing but a bit of jackassery.
"Because, Locke Lamora, some day you're going to dine with barons and counts and dukes. You're going to dine with merchants and admirals and generals and ladies of every sort! And when you do..." Chains put two fingers under Locke's chin and tilted the boy's head up so they were eye to eye. "When you do, those poor idiots won't have any idea that they're really dining with a thief."
