DuneBook - 1990
Frank Herbert’s classic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience."
—Frank Herbert, Dune
Best affirmation ever:
“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.”
Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear
"There was pain in him -- like a blister all that remained of some lost yesterday that Time had pruned off him"
