I have a lot of favorite quotes from books I loved. Frank Herbert’s Dune gave me several: “The sleeper must awaken”, “I must not fear”, and “Bless the maker and His water” just off the top of my head. Time Enough for Love had a couple also, “Progress doesn’t come from early risers — progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things”, and, “May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live”. I could go on and on with favorite quotes, but the best of them touch on some specific part of the story or better yet, push through to the state of being human. Of course, I also like a good laugh, so some of the quotes I like most are funny AND enlightened!

I love everything Dune, from the books to the video games. Can’t wait for the movie coming out soon. Thanks for reminding me of these quotes!
I’m excited too, even if we have to wait longer for a theatrical release. I read the original series after watching the 1984 movie on TV. Fairly certain it took me a whole summer!
