Quote Me

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Quote Me, and this is what it said:

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

And this is my response:

I do not have a favorite quote at this time, but here is a quote from the Dune –ย Wikiquote page for the Dune novels that I found today and that I thought was interesting, and that I might use on my About Page one day:

Odd as it may seem, great struggles such as the one you can see emerging from my journals are not always visible to the participants.

Much depends on what people dream in the secrecy of their hearts.

I have always been as concerned with the shaping of dreams as with the shaping of actions.

Between the lines of my journals is the struggle with humankind’s view of itself โ€” a sweaty contest on a field where motives from our darkest past can well up out of an unconscious reservoir and become events with which we not only must live but contend.

It is the hydra-headed monster which always attacks from your blind side.

I pray, therefore, that when you have traversed my portion of the Golden Path you no longer will be innocent children dancing to music you cannot hear.

The end,
