"How often it is that the angry man rages denial of what his inner self is telling him."
- “The Collected Sayings of Muad’Dib” by the Princess Irulan, Dune by Frank Herbert
"Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic."
- from “The Sayings of Muad’Dib” by the Princess Irulan, Dune by Frank Herbert
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
- a Bene Gesserit saying, Dune by Frank Herbert
