Quotes / Just Like Robin Hood

It ain't what you takin', it's who you takin' it from.
Omar Little, The Wire

Overture: Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, riding through the land/Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, without a merry band/He steals from the poor and gives to the rich/stupid bitch!

Overture: We said, 'He steals from the poor and gives to the rich'.
Mr. Moore: ...wait a tic. Blimey, this redistribution of wealth is trickier than I thought.

He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man and he gave him what-for

Zeke: So what're ya gonna do with the prize money if you win?
Cassiopeia: Eh, give it to some good cause I can't just pinch things for. I never did figure out how to steal parents for space-orphans.

Not all Euthanatoi are killers; you prefer Aces (or Jokers) over Kings. Luck - good or bad - is the hand you deal, and it's much less permanent than death. It's amazing how much sudden poverty can teach a person. On the other hand, your way with fortune helps the needy. Slot machines are child's play, and you get a warm feeling from the shouts of joy you inspire. Lady Luck can flash a dazzling smile.
The Agent of Fortune, Mage: The Ascension - Tradition Book: Euthanatos
