Some people never observe anything. Life just happens to them. They get by on little more than a kind of dumb persistence, and they resist with anger and resentment anything that might lift them out of that false serenity.

"You must teach me someday how you do that", he said "the way you thrust your worries aside and turn to practical matters. It must be a Bene Gesserit thing"

"It's a female thing," she said.

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.

There is unknown all around us all the time. That is where you seek knowledge.

Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us?

When strangers meet, great allowances should be made for differences of custom and training.

When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that is according to your principles; when I am stronger than you, I take away your freedom because that is according to my principles.

Most discipline is hidden discipline, designed not to liberate but to limit. Do not ask Why? Be cautious with How? Why? leads inexorably to paradox. How? traps you in a universe of cause and effect. Both deny the infinite.

Answers are a perilous grip on the universe. They can appear sensible yet explain nothing.

A hunchback does not see his own hunch – Folk Saying.
Bene Gesserit Commentary: The hunch may be seen with the aid of mirrors but mirrors may show the whole being.

Uproot your questions from their ground and the dangling roots will be seen. More questions!

Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

No sweeteners will cloak some forms of bitterness. If it tastes bitter, spit it out. That’s what our earliest ancestors did.

Spend energies on those who make you strong. Energy spent on weaklings drags you to doom. (HM rule)

Humans are born with a susceptibility to that most persistent and debilitating disease of intellect: self-deception. The best of all possible worlds and the worst get their dramatic coloration from it. As nearly as we can determine, there is no natural immunity. Constant alertness is required.
