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

— Frank Herbert

“The child who refuses to travel in the father’s harness, this is the symbol of man’s most unique capability. “I do not have to be what my father was. I do not have to obey my father’s rules or even believe everything he believed. It is my strength as a human that I can make my own choices of what to believe and what not to believe, of what to be and what not to be.”

— Frank Herbert, Children of Dune

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

— Frank Herbert

A person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing you to grow. Without them, it sleeps- seldom to awaken. The sleeper must awaken.

— Frank Herbert

Nature does not make mistakes. Right and wrong are human categories.

— Frank Herbert

Confine yourself to observing and you always miss the point of your life. The object can be stated this way: Live the best life you can. Life is a game whose rules you learn if you leap into it and play it to the hilt. Otherwise, you are caught off balance, continually surprised by the shifting play. Non-players often whine and complain that luck always passes them by. They refuse to see that they can create some of their own luck.

— Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class — whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.

— Frank Herbert, Children of Dune

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.

— Frank Herbert, Dune

Seek freedom and become captive of your desires. Seek discipline and find your liberty.

— Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
