What's a good quote from or to Fagin in Oliver Twist that shows how greedy he is?

Here's a good one:
" 'When the boy is worth a hundred pounds to me, am I to lose what chance threw me in the way of getting safely, through the whims of a drunken gang that I could whistle away the lives of! And me bound, too, to a born devil, that only wants the will and has the power'".
This statement by Fagin is directed to Nancy and shows the depth of his greed and exploitation of the people around him. Pg. 201-202
