The person who takes the banal and ordinary and illuminates it in a new way can terrify. We do not want our ideas changed. We feel threatened by such demands. “I already know the important things!” we say. Then Changer comes and throws our old ideas away. #Idea #QuotsySept19

Frank Herbert‘s Dune series immediately came to mind for its exploration of what it means to be #Human. I could share a million quotes from these books! Here‘s just a couple..

“If we cannot adjust our differences peacefully, then we are less than human” ― Heretics 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.” — Dune

“Confine yourself to observing & 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 & play it to the hilt. Otherwise, you are caught off balance, continually surprised by the shifting play. Non-players often whine & complain that luck always passes them by. They refuse to see that they can create some of their own luck.” #shift #QuotsyMay19

“Everything you do, everything you sense and say is experiment. No deduction final. Nothing stops until dead and perhaps not even then, because each life creates endless ripples. Induction bounces within and you sensitize yourself to it. Deduction conveys illusions of absolutes. Kick the truth and shatter it!” #bounce #QuotsyJan19

“All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is #magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted.” #QuotsyDec18

"The love the Bene Gesserit tried to deny was everywhere, Odrade thought. In small things and big. How many ways there were to prepare delectable, life-sustaining foods, recipes that really were embodiments of loves old and new. This bouillabaisse so smoothly restorative on her tongue; its origins were planted deeply in love; the wife at home using that part of the day's catch her husband could not sell." #Soup #QuotsyNov18

I thought of this scene for #grill: "Conversation rarely occurred unless Mother Superior initiated it. Gentle initiation, usually, easing into more intimate matters. Others around them listened avidly....Someone behind Odrade whispered: "She has Streggi on the coals tonight." On the coals. Odrade knew the expression. It had been used in her acolyte days." #QuotsyAug18

April wasn't a great month as far as reading goes. I read four books. Only one of them counted towards a reading challenge (#LitsyAtoZ2018) & I fell behind on my Goodreads challenge. However, I did meet my #CampNanowrimo goal of 15,000 words/15 hours of revision! I'm hoping to get back on track with my reading challenges in May.

Sometimes, I think it's depressing that everything is #temporary, but I suppose it can be liberating too, from a certain point of view. #QuotsyApril18

I don't know if this counts as a #girlcrush, but what I've always loved about the Dune series is the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood and all of the strong female characters: Jessica, who defied the Sisterhood for love; Chani, smart, fierce & loyal; Darwi Odrade, who wasn't afraid to rock the boat; and Ghanima, Sheeana, Taraza, Lucilla, Rebecca, Murbella to name a few more! #OctoberPhotoChallenge
