“Grudges seldom hurt anyone except the one bearing them.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Should I warm the oven and bake you a batch of hero cookies? - Zephyra ”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“I want the honest truth about something. Could you really fight with someone who did as much damage to you as my father has done to me? (Urian)
I subjected myself to the goddess who drugged me to the point I couldn’t protect my sister and nephew the night they were brutally slaughtered, and they were the only two people in the universe who’d ever given two shits about me. Later that same day, she stood back and let her twin brother butcher me on the floor like an animal, yet within hours after that I sold myself to her to protect mankind. For the sake of the Dark-Hunters, I subjected myself to her cruel whims for eleven thousand years. So, yeah, Urian, I think I could manage to suck it up for an hour to protect the rest of the world. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Because I cursed him to it. (Acheron)
Be glad I’m not physically there or I’d slap you upside the head. You know how free will works, so stop the whining and get off the cross. Someone needs the wood. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Enough, children. In case you haven’t noticed, we have a major situation playing out. We have to find and stop War, corral the gallu, protect Apostolos, and get Savitar out of here. (Apollymi)
Why the later? (Jared)
Because I hate his guts. (Apollymi)
I hate you, too, precious. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“If you leave here, War can find you again. What are you going to do if that happens? (Tory)
Leave bloodstains on his best shirt. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“How you figure that, grom? Your mother’s the Destroyer. It’s a title she not only earned, but one she relishes. And you’re sending me in with only a few Charonte as backup. What did I ever do to you? (Savitar)
Man up, Sav. You’re whining like a little girl. (Acheron)
If your mother has her way, she’ll turn me into one, and I look like shit in pink. Thanks, kid. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“You’re the one who unleashed him. (Savitar)
Yeah, well, let’s move on from the blame game. I was having suicidal thoughts and it seemed like a good idea at the time. In retrospect, not so much. (Stryker)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“You know you’re the only man alive I’d ever follow after what I’ve been through. You’re also the only one I respect. (Urian)
And you’re one of the extremely few I trust. (Acheron)
Brothers? (Urian)
Brothers to the end. Now before we get all girly and cry, get your ass upstairs and prepare for what’s coming. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“So are we going to continue glaring angrily at each other while we pose in our tough stances? Or use our time to work out a plan that hopefully doesn’t end with our mutual deaths? (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“For the record, we’re not friends. (Stryker)
For the record, I don’t care. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“you're so full of shit, you ought to be a cow manure”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“You stubborn bastard. Take it from someone who knows firsthand, there’s a lot to be said for forgiveness. Grudges seldom hurt anyone except the one bearing them."
"And there’s a lot to be said for knocking enemies upside their heads and cracking skulls open."
Ash & Urian”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Gods, how I’ve missed you. (Stryker)
I hate you with every beat of my heart. (Zephyra)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“The man hates your guts more than Stryker does. You’ll be lucky if he doesn’t pull your spine out through your nostrils. (Tory)
Nice to have Miss Merry Sunshine back again. Any other Eeyore outlooks you’d like to share? (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Works for me. For the ones we love, today we’re allies. Tomorrow we resume our natural order of mortal enemies. Gentlemen, and I use that term loosely for all of us, have we an accord? (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Should we start making preparations here? (Tory)
Punk-ass won’t come to my island! He knows better. You don’t tap on the Devil’s shoulder unless you’re willing to dance to his tune. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“You are such an optimist. My Spidey-sense is tingling all over the place. (Tory)
That’s from eating the ice cream. Relax. (Acheron)
Relax. Trust me. It’ll be all right. Isn’t that how I ended up dead? (Danger)
Stop feeding her anxiety. (Acheron)
Anxiety. The Simi’s never eaten that before. Is that tasty? (Simi)
Not really. (Danger)
Oh. Maybe we should put barbecue sauce on it. Everything’s better with barbecue. (Simi)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Your father abandoned us. (Zephyra)
I know. You’ve told me that enough that it’s permanently seared into my brain. Still, he’s a part of me and I’d like to have closure. (Medea)
You really need to stop watching Oprah. (Zephyra)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“A clever enemy would kiss my hand, then stab at my back while I was distracted. (Stryker)
A coward’s action. Truly. Don’t insult either one of us with such a suggestion. I don’t believe in petty juvenile attacks. I go after what I want, and when it’s the life of an enemy I don’t want there to be any mistaking my intention. If you’re worth my hatred, then you’re worth my letting you know that I’m coming for you. (Zephyra)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“In every house, there was always one malcontent jealous prick out to destroy everyone else just for spite. The entire history of the earth was written in the blood of those betrayed by the very people they’d foolishly trusted. (Stryker)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Looks like I missed a party. Good. I wasn’t really in the mood to off demons this evening. Haven’t had my coffee yet. (Jared)
You drink coffee? (Stryker)
No, but it was my pathetic attempt at humor. (Jared)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“You stubborn bastard. Take it from someone who knows firsthand, there’s a lot to be said for forgiveness. Grudges seldom hurt anyone except the one bearing them. (Acheron)
And there’s a lot to be said for knocking enemies upside their heads and cracking skulls open. (Urian)
To everything there is a season, and tonight ours is to stand together or lose everything. I’m not fighting for Stryker or to save your sister. I’m fighting to protect the ones I love. The ones who will suffer most if War isn’t stopped. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“I’ll abide by my word, but you will never win me back! Believe me, in two weeks I will slice open your throat, drink from your blood, and then pierce your heart and laugh while your body explodes into dust. (Zephyra)
Beautiful imagery. You should write for Hallmark. (Stryker)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“We all have regrets, Urian. Nothing that lives is immune from that nasty emotion. (Acheron)
So what? You want me to go kiss and make up? (Urian)
Hardly. But I want you to set aside your own hurt and anger to see clearly for a minute. This isn’t about you and your father anymore than it’s about me and Nick hating each other over something we can’t change. This is about saving the lives of a million innocent people. People like Phoebe who don’t deserve to be hunted and killed. If I can stand at the side of my enemies for the greater good, so can you. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“We’re not that strong anymore. (Hades)
Oops, guess I screwed up. Inability to see the consequences of our thoughtless acts must run in the family. So much for my father being a god of prophecy, huh? (Stryker)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Trust me, baby, you weren’t that good. I was just a better actress than you were actor. (Zephyra to Stryker)
Ew! No offense, Mum, I don’t want to know who you’ve slept with. Kill the sexual bantering and him before I go deaf from it. (Medea)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“You bit me? (Stryker)
We use what we have. (Zephyra)
That’s such a girl move. (Stryker)
But it works. Maybe if you fought like a girl and not a stunted baboon, you’d actually win. (Zephyra)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“Little brother, I don’t mean to be a downer, but we’re talking about War here. There’s no way to mitigate damages. He won’t let us. I was there with twenty-five Chthonians to fight him and he spanked our hides like we were Lemurian slave women. Two of us had our hearts ripped out and shoved down our throats while he laughed, then he licked the blood clean from his fingers and came at the rest of us. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night


“He says he’d rather be dead than leave me. According to him, we’re family. I guess that makes me the psycho uncle no one wants to talk to. And he’s the kid with only imaginary friends for company. ‘Normal’ Rockwell, here we come. (Jared)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from One Silent Night

“The idols of the nations are silver and gold, The work of men's hands; 13 They have a mouth, but they shall not speak; They have eyes, but they shall not see; 14 They have ears, but they shall not hear; They have noses, but they shall not smell; 15 They have hands, but they shall not feel; They have feet, but they shall not walk; They shall make no sound with their throats. 16 May those who make them become like them, And all who trust in them.”
― quote from The Orthodox Study Bible


“You have to stop thinking about Billystorm in that way, right now! You have a different destiny, one that involves the future of the whole Clan. And it is a path that you must walk alone.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from SkyClan's Destiny


“Well,” Leigh said, because there was nothing else. She looked back at the picture of herself and Pam in the blue dresses. “We did have it easier than she did. I’m sure we did. And I should thank her for that, I guess.”

Pam nodded. She looked calm, untroubled. Leigh, tapped her foot on the ottoman and glanced at her mother’s photographs. “But it felt like that was all she saw when she looked at us.” She leaned forward to get Pam’s attention. She wanted her sister to understand, to see things the way she had. “You know? I always felt like she never saw me, me as a individual. Do you know what I am saying? She gave us everything she ever wanted. But she never thought about what we wanted that it may be different. Or that we might need something that she didn’t. She never saw us separate from herself. She never saw us.” She paused, nodding in agreement with herself. That was it. She decided. She’d never put words to the feeling before, but that was it. That had been the whole trouble between them.

But when she looked back at Pam, her satisfaction vanished. Her sister’s mouth was pulled tight, her eyes wide. She looked away from Leigh, saying nothing, still the loyal confidante. But Leigh already knew. She knew what she couldn’t guess before, what Pam thought of the two of them on the porch swing, Kara talking, Pam listening. Leigh didn’t have to guess anymore. She could hear the words come out of her daughter’s mouth as clearly as they’d just come out of her own.”
― Laura Moriarty, quote from The Rest of Her Life


“Doobie always wanted to see the badge. It was shiny, and he was eight.”
― Eoin Colfer, quote from Half-Moon Investigations


“I wanted to live a proper life with deep, interwoven relationships for better or worse, which only death could separate.”
― Ninni Holmqvist, quote from The Unit

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
