A Quote by Frank Patrick Herbert on existence, freedom, kindness, questions, and survival

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase... The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who do survive.

A Quote by Frank Patrick Herbert on certainty, government, and popularity

If you think of yourselves as helpless and ineffectual, it is certain that you will create a despotic government to be your master. The wise despot, therefore, maintains among his subjects a popular sense that they are helpless and ineffectual.

A Quote by Frank Patrick Herbert on action, attitude, emptiness, failure, god, knowledge, life, men, religion, and teaching

Much of what has been called religion has an unconscious attitude of hostility toward life. True religion must teach that life is filled with joys pleasing to the eye of God, that knowledge without action is empty. All men must see that the teaching of religion by rule and rote is largely a hoax. The proper teaching is recognized with ease. You can know it without fail because it awakens within you that sensation which tells you this is something you've always known.
