Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#1. Saints!" his father gasped. "This city is worse than the guidebooks said!"
"Da, it isn't the city," Jesper said, pulling the pistol from his coat. "They're after me. Or after us. Hard to say."
"Who's after you?"
Jesper exchanged a glance with Wylan. Jan Van Eck? A rival gang looking to settle a score? Pekka Rollins or someone else Jesper had borrowed money from? "There's a long list of potential suitors. We need to get out of here before they introduce themselves more personally. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#2. Now, I assume you don't want me to cart you back to Fjerda or the Shu Han?"

It was clear Nina had finished the translation when Kuwei yelped, "No!"

"Then your choices are Novyi Zem and the Southern Colonies, but the Kerch presence in the colonies is far lower. Also, the weather is better, if you're partial to that kind of thing. You are a stolen painting, Kuwei. Too recognizable to sell on the open market, too valuable to leave lying around. You are worthless to me."

"I'm not translating that," Nina snapped.

"Then translate this: My sole concern is keeping you away from Jan Van Eck, and if you want me to start exploring more definite options, a bullet is a lot cheaper than putting you on a ship to the Southern Colonies."

Nina did translate, though haltingly.

Kuwei responded in Shu. She hesitated. "He says you're cruel."

"I'm pragmatic. If I were cruel, I'd give him a eulogy instead of a conversation. So, Kuwei, you'll go to the Southern Colonies, and when the heat has died down, you can find your way to Ravka or Matthias' grandmother's house for all I care."

"Leave my grandmother out of this," Matthias said. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#3. Our hopes rest with you, Mister Brekker. If you fail, all the world will suffer for it."
"Oh, it's worse than that, Van Eck. If I fail, I don't get paid."
The look of disgust on the merch's face was something that deserved its own DeKappel oil to commemorate it.
"Don't look so disappointed. Just think how miserable you would have been to discover this canal rat had a patriotic streak. You might actually have had to uncurl that lip and treat me with something closer to respect."
"Thank you for sparing me that discomfort #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#4. Where do think the money went?" he repeated.
"Guns?" asked Jesper.
"Ships?" queried Inej.
"Bombs?" suggested Wylan.
"Political bribes?" offered Nina. They all looked at Matthias. "This is where you tell us how awful we are," she whispered.
He shrugged. "They all seem like practical choices. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#5. What did you say to Van Eck on the bridge?" Kaz asked at last. "When we were making the trade?"
"You will see me once more, but only once."
"More Suli proverbs?"
"A promise to myself. And Van Eck."
"Careful, Wraith. You're ill-suited to the revenge game. I'm not sure your Suli Saints would approve."
"My Saints don't like bullies. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#6. I guess we need to find a way to the quarry?" Jesper said.
Wylan coughed. "No we don't, just a general store."
"But you told Kaz the mineral - "
"It's present in all kinds of paints and enamels. I wanted to make sure I had a reason to go to Olendaal."
"Wylan Van Eck, you lied to Kaz Brekker." Jesper clutched a hand to his chest. "And you got away with it! Do you give lessons?"
Wylan felt ridiculously pleased - until he thought about Kaz finding out. Then he felt a little like the first time he'd tried brandy and ended up spewing his dinner all over his own shoes. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#7. Do you want to beat Van Eck?" Kaz asked.

Nina blew out an exasperated breath. "Of course."

Kaz's eyes scanned the room, moving from face to face. "Do you? Do you want your money? The money we fought, and bled, and nearly drowned for? Or do you want Van Eck to be glad he picked a bunch of nobodies from the Barrel to scam? Because no one else is going to get him for us. No one else is going to care that he cheated us or that we risked our lives for nothing. No one else is going to make this right. So I'm asking, do you want to beat Van Eck?"

"Yes," said Inej. She wanted some kind of justice.

"Soundly," said Nina.

"Around the ears with Wylan's flute," said Jesper.

One by one, they nodded. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#8. You've seen what this drug can do. I assure you it is just the beginning. If jurda parem is unleashed on the world, war is inevitable. Our trade lines will be destroyed, and our markets will collapse. Kerch will not survive it. Our hopes rest with you, Mister Brekker. If you fail, all the world will suffer for it."
"Oh, it's worse than that, Van Eck. If I fail, I don't get paid. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#9. Drop heavy," Kaz shouted, and Wylan let loose with every rocket, flash bomb, and bit of demo he'd been able to fit into the boat. The sky above the Van Eck house exploded in an array of light, smoke, and sound as the guards dove for cover.
Kaz put his arms to work, feeling the boat slide into the current as they passed into the glittering traffic of Geldcanal.
"In and out without him ever knowing?" said Rotty. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#10. When this is all over, when Van Eck has been put in his place, when Rollins goes running, and the money is paid, these will still be my streets. I can't live in a city where I can't hold up my head."
"If you have a head to hold up," said Jesper.
"I've taken knives, bullets, and too many punches to count, all for a little piece of this town," said Kaz. "This is the city I bled for. And if Ketterdam has taught me anything, it's that you can always bleed a little more. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#11. Matthias joined them at the table. "The Shu woman we faced was stronger than me, Jesper, and Wylan put together."
"You heard right," said Jesper. "Stronger than Wylan. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#12. Jes, I've thought about this-"
"Thought of me? Late at night? What was I wearing?"
"I've thought about your powers," Wylan said, cheeks flushing pinker. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Jan Van Ruysbroeck
#13. I must rejoice beyond the bounds of time … though the world may shudder at my joy, and in its coarsness know not what I mean.
#Quote by Jan Van Ruysbroeck
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#14. There is no safe," Kaz snarled. "Not in the Barrel. Not anywhere." He threw his strength into rowing. No seal. No ship. Their money spent.
"What do we do now?" Wylan said quietly, his voice barely audible above the sound of the water and the other boats on the canal.
"Pick up a pair of oars and make yourself useful," said Kaz. "Or I'll put your pampered ass in the drink and let your father fish you out. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#15. Jesper swung first. Kaz dodged right and then they were grappling. They slammed into the wall, knocked heads, drew apart in a flurry of punches and grabs. Wylan turned to Inej, expecting her to object, for Matthias to separate them, for someone to do something, but the others just backed up, making room. Only Kuwei showed any kind of distress.
Jesper and Kaz swung around, crashed into the mechanism of the clock, righted themselves. It wasn't a fight, it was a brawl--graceless, a tangle of elbows and fists.
"Ghezen and his works, someone stop them!" Wylan said desperately. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#16. What makes you think we can do this? There will be other teams out there, trained soldiers and spies, people with years of experience."
"This isn't a job for trained soldiers and spies. It's a job for thugs and thieves. Van Eck knows it, and that's why he brought us in. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#17. Go on, Van Eck, threaten me. Tell me all the little things I am. You lay a finger on me and Kaz Brekker will cut the baby from your pretty wife's stomach and hang its body from a balcony at the Exchange. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#18. Inej," Wylan called from one of the rolling bins. "These are our clothes."

He reached in and, one after the other, pulled out Inej's little leather slippers.

Her face broke into a dazzling smile. Finally, a bit of luck. Kaz didn't have his cane. Jesper didn't have his guns. And Inej didn't have her knives. But at least she had those magic slippers.

"What do you say, Wraith? Can you make the climb?"

"I can."

Jesper took the shoes from Wylan. "If I didn't think these might be crawling with disease, I would kiss them and then you. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#19. Van Eck raised a brow. How old are you, girl? Sixteen? Seventeen? Nations rise and fall. Markets are made and unmade. When power shifts, someone always suffers. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Deyth Banger
#20. Reincarnation do you know this word??
No?

Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#21. He didn't take her out of the city," she'd said, cheeks glowing with color for the first time since she'd emerged from her battle with parem . "It's obvious he's keeping her there."
But Kaz had simply gazed into the middle distance with that odd look on his face and said, "Too obvious."
"Kaz - "
"How would you like a hundred kruge ?"
"What's the catch?"
"Exactly. Van Eck's making it too easy. He's treating us like marks. But he isn't Barrel born, and we aren't a bunch of dumb culls ready to jump at the first shiny lure he flashes. Van Eck wants us to think she's on that island. Maybe she is. But he'll have plenty of firepower waiting for us too, maybe even a few Grisha using parem ."
"Always hit where the mark isn't looking," Wylan had murmured.
"Sweet Ghezen," said Jesper. "You've been thoroughly corrupted. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Jan Van Ruysbroeck
#22. The depths themselves remain uncomprehended. This is the dark silence in which all lovers are lost. #Quote by Jan Van Ruysbroeck
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#23. If this was the plan, what was the point to trying to smuggle in those lockpicks?" Wylan asked.

Kaz folded his arms. "Ever hear about the dying man whose medik told him he'd been miraculously cured? He danced into the street and was trampled to death by a horse. You have to let the mark feel like he's won. Were the guards studying Matthias and wondering if he looked familiar? Were they looking for trouble when Jesper went into the showers with paraffin sloughing off his arms? No, they were too busy congratulating themselves on catching me. They thought they'd neutralized the threat. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#24. Pick up the pace," Kaz said, eyeing his watch.
"If I spill a single drop of this, it will burn straight through the floor onto my father's dinner guests."
"Take your time. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Jan L.A. Van De Snepscheut
#25. The difference between theory and practice is larger in practice than the difference between theory and practice in theory. #Quote by Jan L.A. Van De Snepscheut
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#26. When they were only a few yards from the stone hull, Inej halted and watched the mists wreathing the branches. "He was going to break by legs," she said. "Smash them with a mallet so they'd never heal…."
She took a shaky breath. The words came like a string of gunshots, rapid-fire, as if she resented the very act of speaking them. "I didn't know if you would come."
Kaz couldn't blame Van Eck for that. Kaz has built that doubt in her with every cold word and small cruelty.
"We're your crew, Inej. We don't leave our own at the mercy of merch scum." It wasn't the answer he wanted to give. It wasn't the answer she wanted.
When she turned to him, her eyes were bright with anger.
"He was going to break my legs," she said, her chin held high, the barest quaver in her voice. "Would you have come for me then, Kaz? When I couldn't scale a wall or walk a tightrope? When I wasn't the Wraith anymore?"
Dirtyhands would not. The boy who could get them through this, get their money, keep them alive, would do her the courtesy of putting her out of her misery, then cut his losses and move on.
"I would come for you," he said, and when he saw the wary look she shot him, he said it again. "I would come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together - knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting."
The wind rose. The boughs of the willows whis #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#27. It was a calculated risk."
"It was cross-your-fingers-and-hope-for-the-best. Believe me, I know the difference. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#28. Wylan's grin broadened. His brow lifted. If that wasn't an invitation …
"Well, hell," Jesper muttered. He closed the distance between them and took Wylan's face in his hands. He moved slowly, deliberately, kept the kiss quiet, the barest brush of his lips, giving Wylan the chance to pull away if he wanted to. But he didn't. He drew closer.
(...)
He pulled back, dropped his hands, feeling unspeakably awkward. What did you say after a terrible kiss? He'd never had cause to wonder.
That was when he saw Kuwei standing in the doorway, mouth open, eyes wide and shocked.
"What?" Jesper asked. "Do the Shu not kiss before noon?"
"I wouldn't know," Kuwei said sourly.
Not Kuwei.
"Oh, Saints," Jesper groaned. That wasn't Kuwei in the doorway. It was Wylan Van Eck, budding demolitions expert and wayward rich kid. And that meant he'd just kissed …
The real Kuwei plunked that same listless note on the piano, grinning shamelessly up at him through thick black lashes. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#29. Does this bother you, merchling?"
"I don't enjoy feeling like a thief."
"After everything he's done?"
"Yes."
"So much for righteous. You do realize we're stealing your money?"
"Jesper said the same thing, but I'm sure my father wrote me out of his will as soon as Alys became pregnant."
"That doesn't mean you're any less entitled to it."
"I don't want it. I just don't want him to have it."
"What a luxury to turn your back on luxury. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Jacob Zuma
#30. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival in Cape Town was the beginning of all South Africa's problems. #Quote by Jacob Zuma
Jan Van Eck quotes by Irving Stone
#31. 'I saw the light of your room through the bottom of the door,' said vice-admiral, 'the watchman told me he had seen you in the yard four o'clock in the morning. How many hours per day do you work?'
'It depends. Sometimes eighteen, sometimes twenty.'
'Twenty!' Uncle Jan shook his head, his face became even more concerned. Vice-admiral could not believe that there would be such a thickhead in Van Gogh family. #Quote by Irving Stone
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#32. He swept the red cloak around Inej's shoulders in a rain of petals and blossoms as she continued to strap on her knives. She looked almost as startled as the flower seller.
"What?" he asked as he tossed her a Mister Crimson mask that matched his own.
"Those were my mother's favorite flower."
"Good to know Van Eck didn't cure you of sentiment."
"Nice to be back, Kaz."
"Good to have you back, Wraith. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#33. Pull your shirt up over your mouth," he told Wylan.
"What?"
"Stop being dense. You're cuter when you're smart."
Wylan's cheeks went pink. He scowled and pulled his collar up. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Jan Van Eck quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#34. Van Eck promised us thirty million kruge ," said Kaz. "That's exactly what we're going to take. With another one million for interest, expenses, and just because we can."
Wylan broke a cracker in two. "My father doesn't have thirty million kruge lying around. Even if you took all his assets together."
"You should leave, then," said Jesper. "We only associate with the disgraced heirs of the very finest fortunes. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
