Here is a page of quotes of Reen. Some may have not been actually said by Reen, but by Ruin in order to influence Vin.


...Ruthlessness was the very most practical of emotions.


...the surest way to stay alive in the underworld was to make yourself indispensable.


The only reason to be subservient to those with power is so that you can learn to someday take what they have.


Never trust a man who tells you good news (...) Its the oldest, but easiest, way to con someone.


Focus keeps a thief alive.


Never let your life depend on the competence of someone else whose life isn't also on the line.
