* In ''[[{{Dragaera}} Five Hundred Years After]]'', one of Khaavren's guardsmen says that since most of the civilians were evacuated, Dragaera City is so quiet that the Guards aren't really needed. Khaavren asks if he's ever spent any time in the jungle, where there are dzur or dragons? The guardsman says he has. Well, if he was out in the jungle and all the birds and little critters suddenly hid or went quiet, would he feel ''safe''? The guardsman sees Khaavren's point.
* In Jerry Pournelle's ''[[CoDominium Falkenberg's Legion]]'', Falkenberg says, "Things are going well. When that happens I wonder what I've overlooked."

* Techs will also be unsettled if the shop's gone too quiet. A noisy server room means the fans are working. A ''quiet'' one means the fan or the server has gone out - neither of which if good news.

** TruthInTelevision as there often are no sounds anywhere around the concentration or death camps; the fires and smell and other outputs from the camp tends to drive most normal animals away. No birds singing, no animals making any noise... ''nothing''. Those places are eerily quiet. But considering that over six million people died in those places... it's easy to see why.
