Quotes

Paul: 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.

Duke Leto Atreides: I'll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.

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.

Princess Irulan: A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then, that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the Universe is the spice melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over four-thousand years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of the Universe without moving. Oh yes, I forget to tell you. The spice exists on only one planet in the entire Universe. A desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. Hidden away within the rocks of these deserts are a people known as the Fremen, who have long held a prophecy, that a man would come, a messiah, who would lead them to true freedom. The planet is Arrakis. Also known as Dune.

Paul: 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.

Guildmaster: 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.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: Do you know of the Water of Life? The bile from the ill-borne worms of Arrakis?

Paul: I have heard of it.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: It's very dangerous. The Bene Gesserit sisterhood would use it to see - within. There is a place - terrifying to us. To women. It is said: a man will come, the Kwisatz Haderach. He will go where we can not. Many men have tried.

Paul: They tried and failed?

Reverend Mother Mohiam: They tried and died.

Paul: Emperor Shaddam IV, there are Guild Heighliners above us containing many Great Houses of the Laandsraad. Send them back.

Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: How dare you speak to me in...

Guild Worker: Stop your speaking!

Paul: You have some idea of what I could do.

Paul: [the Reverend Mother Mohiam growls at him] Don't try your powers on me. Try looking into that place where you dare not look.You'll find me there, staring back at you.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: [DELETED LINE] Silence him, Jessica!

Lady Jessica: [DELETED LINE] Silence him yourself, if you can.

Paul: [DELETED LINE] For ninety generations you and your Bene Gesserit have labored in secret to produce a living, breathing super-weapon... one that would empower you to overthrow both the Guild and the Emperor. Indeed. This weapon, I am. And these goals, I have achieved. *But I will NEVER be YOURS to control.*

Reverend Mother Mohiam: [Using the Voice] *You mustn't speak... *

Paul: [Also using the Voice, which overpowers her] SILENCE!

[she is knocked backward against several Guild Workers]

Paul: I remember your gom jabbar, now you'll remember mine. I can kill with a word.

Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: I sit on the throne!

Paul: You will sit on the throne on Selusa Secundus, your prison planet. Either that, or you will die.

[he walks towards Chani]

Paul: The princess shall have no more of me than my name... no child of mine, nor touch, nor softness of glance, nor instant of desire.

[he tenderly strokes her cheek]

Paul: This is promise to you, my love.

Lady Jessica: Think on it, Chani. We who carry the name of concubine... history will call us wives.

Thufir Hawat: [raises knife, to everyone's shock, but drops it and turns back to Feyd] Did you truly believe, even for a moment, that I would fail my Duke TWICE?

[He rips out his own heart plug, then collapses into Paul's arms]

Thufir Hawat: Three generations of... you...

Duke Leto Atreides: What have you discovered about the Fremen, Duncan? Tell me. Why haven't we heard from you?

Duncan Idaho: My lord, I suspect so much. I think they are the allies we seek. They are strong, fierce. They do not give their loyalty easily or quickly. As you know, the Imperium has never been able to take a census of the Fremen. Everyone thinks that there are but few, wandering here and there in the desert. My lord, I suspect an incredible secret has been kept on this planet: that the Fremen exist in vast numbers - vast. And it is they who control Arrakis.

Lady Jessica: I must be sure you want this. It has to be tonight, under these influences. I could hear you with the wind.

Lady Jessica: And I whispered 'I love you'.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: Jessica!

Lady Jessica: [enters]

[inner voice]

Lady Jessica: My son - lives!

Reverend Mother Mohiam: I sense your teachings in him. Ignore the regular order of training. His safety requires the Voice.

Paul: I've heard enough of my safety! What about my father? I heard you talking. You speak as if he were dead, well he's not!

Lady Jessica: Paul.

Paul: Well he's not! And he won't die. Tell me he won't die.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: What can be done, has been done.

Paul: Dr. Yueh, do you have any information on the worms of Arrakis?

Dr. Wellington Yueh: I've obtained a film book of a small specimen. Only a 125 meters long.

Paul: Only?

Dr. Wellington Yueh: There have been documented sightings of worms as large as 450 meters in the deep desert. That's far from where we'll be in Arrakeen. The desert belt and south polar region are marked forbidden.

Paul: How do the Fremens survive there?

Dr. Wellington Yueh: We don't know much about the Fremen. They live in the deep desert. Some of them in the cities. They have blue-within-blue eyes.

Paul: Ah, the eyes. Yes. A saturation of the blood by the spice Melange.

Dr. Kynes: Where there is spice and spice mining, there are always worms.

Paul: Always?

Dr. Kynes: Always.
