Frank Herbert Quote: “Muad’Dib learned rapidly because his first training was in how to learn. And the first lesson of all was the basic trust that he could learn.

You put aside understanding itself. This universe cannot be seen, cannot be heard, cannot be detected in any way by fixed perceptions. It is the ultimate void where no preordained screens occur upon which forms may be projected. You have only one awareness here – the screen of the magi: Imagination! Here, you learn what it is to be human. You are a creator of order, of beautiful shapes and systems, an organizer of chaos.”
Frank Herbert Quote: “The basic lesson of our relativistic universe is that things change. Any power must always meet a greater power.”
Frank Herbert Quote: “In their passion for sameness, the tyrants made themselves more and more powerful. All others grew correspondingly weaker and weaker.
