Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.

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.

Arrakis teaches the attitude of the knife — chopping off what's incomplete and saying: "Now it's complete because it's ended here."

Mood? What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises — no matter the mood! Mood's a thing for cattle or making love or playing the baliset. It's not for fighting.

Bureaucracy destroys initiative. There is little that bureaucrats hate more than innovation, especially innovation that produces better results than the old routines. Improvements always make those at the top of the heap look inept. Who enjoys appearing inept?

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.

Paradox is a pointer telling you to look beyond it. If paradoxes bother you, that betrays your deep desire for absolutes. The relativist treats a paradox merely as interesting, perhaps amusing or even, dreadful thought, educational.

The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.

The people I distrust most are those who want to improve our lives but have only one course of action.

One of the best things to come out of the home computer revolution could be the general and widespread understanding of how severely limited logic really is.

Frank Herbert (Forfatter av Dune-serien)

It is a wise man that does know the contented man is never poor, whilst the discontented man is never rich.

Nå begynner jeg å gå tom for sitater fra Dune, så heretter blir det kjekke sitater fra hvor som helst.

Jeg begynner med et riktig gammelt et:

Nullum esse librum tammalum, ut nom aliqua parte podesset.

(Ingen bok er så dårlig at den ikke i en eller annen forbindelse kan være nyttig)
Plinius d.e.

Husk alltid at du er unik. Akkurat som alle andre.

Ukjent
