“It’s never good when you blindly follow some belief system or group of people without consciously deducing whether what they do is right or wrong. The number one test is to wonder what would happen if you openly, but respectfully, questioned your commander’s decision when you think it’s wrong. If the answer in any way resembles punishment, pain, or ridicule, rather than an explanation, you are probably not working for the good guys.” Gavin”
Shayne Silvers, The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller Box Set
“Any man of God who actively condones hatred of another group, especially blanket hate for any people different from himself, has lost his way. Truly.”
Shayne Silvers, Rage

“I had entered that critical stage in a woman’s life – that place when emotion starved to death and the only two options left to fill that void was to become a serial killer or to take a long, hot shower.”
Shayne Silvers, Whispers
“Paperback and buckram books decorated the floor, torn open to leave loose pages lying about like the useless guts of an eviscerated animal. Fury smoldered deep down inside my stomach, as if I were looking at heaps of dead children lying about the room instead. Books were my children. It was sacrilegious. Hundreds”

“Here’s the thing about vampires: I hate them. Have for years. They’re like cockroaches. I mean I get it: they’re simply scuttling around doing what they need to do to survive just like the rest of us. But that doesn’t mean I don’t feel the urge to squeal and stomp the second I see one.”
Shayne Silvers, Whiskey Ginger
“War is wild, but one must know when to be wild, and when to keep calm. Too cold, and you become calloused, brittle, and breakable. Too hot, and your emotions rule you, stealing your control. But to be strategically ruthless? Analytically wild? In a General, these qualities are priceless. For everything else, there’s soldiers,”
Shayne Silvers, Wild Side
“It was a gift of mine. Annoying people to immeasurable levels of hatred.”
Shayne Silvers, Grimm
“An old Cherokee man was teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he told the boy. “It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One is evil — he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” After a few moments to make sure he had the boy’s undivided attention, he continued. “The other wolf is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside of you, boy, and inside of every other person, too.” The grandson thought about this for a few minutes before replying. “Which wolf will win?” The old Cherokee man simply said, “The one you feed, boy. The one you feed…”

“You see, women spoke on many different levels. Men were snipers, focusing only on the one thing directly in front of us, where women were raging cyclones of a dozen assassins hidden inside a single person. Their conversations sliced and diced an innocent gentleman on several planes of existence… at the same time, and without him being aware of the fatality.”
Shayne Silvers, Blood Debts
“Right,” I muttered to myself, impaling the tiny positive-mental-attitude goblin who lived inside the deep, dark, super-black castle fortress of my soul. It was roommates with my silent love for The Sound of Music and cat memes. But”
Shayne Silvers, Tiny Gods
“There are 1,013,900 words in the English language, and none of them accurately portray how badly I want to hit you over the head with a chair. A heavy Amish chair.” Gavin…”

“a small but functional kitchen which seemed overwhelmed by the sheer volume of assorted cookware. Pots, pans, cutting boards, strainers, even a damn rolling pin lay strewn about—as if at any moment Suzy Homemaker might burst in to bake us a fucking souffle. Now, before you start defending your God-given right to bear Teflon, keep in mind I have nothing against people who religiously cook their own meals—I simply don’t understand them. Especially my fellow city dwellers. I mean, why waste all that time preparing dinner when you live in a town chock full of restaurants and bars that deliver damn near 24/7?”
Shayne Silvers, Witches Brew
“I’d considered letting a doctor give me a once over, but I was more than a little afraid she’d come back with a diagnosis that included grave looks and statements like “shouldn’t be upright” or “requires immediate surgery.”
Shayne Silvers, Cosmopolitan
“For the duration of another Big Bang. For the single flutter of a Hummingbird’s wings. For no time at all. Because”
Shayne Silvers, Beast Master
“The rules of grammar are just as important as the rules of engagement in war. Without them, we are barbarians,” I argued.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“Answers can be dangerous… All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why,”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“Nothing is written in stone.” “The Ten Commandments are. And I think we both know that neither of us would pull off an A on that grading scale.”
Shayne Silvers, Grimm
“I’ve heard that you can either choose to smile or cry about problems, but either way, it doesn’t change the fact that they still happened.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“Love is precious, and shouldn’t be wasted on every passing whim, or it will mean nothing by the time you truly wish to share it with someone who matters.” I said softly.

Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“apparently, she has a thing for Twilight.” “Despicable movie.”
Shayne Silvers, Obsidian Son
“In my opinion, there’s something inexplicably wrong with your life when you find yourself in a strip club before noon on a weekday. To me, it felt as culturally insensitive as using a fork to eat sushi: just because you can do it, doesn’t mean you should.”
Shayne Silvers, Witches Brew

“Wait!” I called out. “Did she just say Fook and Yu?” I asked incredulously. Achilles was now sobbing with laughter. I pointed at the blue sapphire dragons. “No, I think this is really important, guys. Their names are Fook and Yu? I really need to know the answer to this. I’m not concerned about the necklace. This is way more important.”
Shayne Silvers, Nine Souls

“It’s hard to say this without being judged a cynic, but from a business standpoint, it was kind of incredible how effective the Christian marketing department had been throughout history. Stunning, as a matter of fact.”
Shayne Silvers, Whispers
