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 let it pass over me and through me. And when it has passed I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where it has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
– Paul

We must totally destroy all spice production on Arrakis. The Guild and the entire Universe depends on spice. He who can destroy a thing, controls a thing.

Put your right hand in the box.

This is part of the weirding way that we will teach you. Some thoughts have a certain sound, that being the equivalent to a form. Through sound and motion, you will be able to paralyze nerves, shatter bones, set fires, suffocate an enemy or burst his organs. We will kill until no Harkonnen breathes Arrakeen air.

Stilgar, do we have wormsign?
– Paul
Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.
– Stilgar

Shield Practice.
– Gurney Halleck
Shield Practice? Gurney, we had practice this morning. I’m not in the mood.

Not in the mood? Mood’s a thing for cattle and loveplay, not fighting!
– Gurney Halleck
I’m sorry Gurney.
– Paul
Not sorry enough.
Gurney Halleck

A Secret Report within the Guild. Four Planets have come to our attention regarding a plot which could jeopardise Spice Production: Planet Arrakis, Source of the Spice. Planet Caladan, home of House Atreides. Planet Geidi Prime, home of House Harkonnen. Planet Kaitain, Home of the Emperor of the Known Universe. Send a third-stage Guild Navigator to Kaitain to demand details from the Emperor. The Spice must flow.
– Guildmaster

Father! The sleeper has awakened!

Long live the fighters!

When you see the Baron remember the tooth!

A million deaths were not enough for Yueh!
– Lady Jessica

Why are you going to prolong the inevitable? I will kill you!
– Feyd-Rautha

May the Hand of God be with you.

May the Hand of God be with us all, Duncan.

I’m dead to everyone unless I become what I may be.

Tell me of your homeworld, Usul.

Now remember, walk without rhythm, and we won’t attract the worm.

You have no need for your weapons with me, Gurney Halleck.
