"Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man."
--from "Collected Sayings of Muad'Dib" by the Princess Irulan

"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

"Many have marked the speed with which Muad'Dib learned the necessities of Arrakis. The Bene Gesserit, of course, know the basis of this speed. For the others, we can say that 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. It's shocking to find how many people do not believe they can learn, and how many more believe learning to be difficult. Muad'Dib knew that every experience carries its lesson." --from "The Humanity of Muad'Dib" by the Princess Irulan


“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.”
-- The Litany Against Fear

Bump."The mind can go either

Bump.  This is an incredibly insightful novel.  This should be the companion guide to the coaching program pretty much.

"The mind can go either direction under stress--- toward positive or toward negative: on or off.  Think of it as a spectrum whose extremes are unconsciousness at the negative end and hyperconsciousness at the positive end.  The way the mind will lean under stress is trongly influenced by training"

Dune is a book?  How come I

Dune is a book?  How come I have never heard of this.  The first one is amazing, because it's so fucking true.  You put greatness in the hands of man who is unready and it will destroy him.  The second one is beautiful as well. Sounds like I have to read this

Looks like the guy who has the movie rights is just waiting for the right oppurtunity.  Movie would be pretty cool

"We came from Caladan - a paradise world for our form of life. There existed no need on Caladan to build a physical paradise or a paradise of the mind - we could see the actuality all around us. And the price we paid was the price men have always paid for achieving a paradise in this life - we went soft, we lost our edge."
