Quotes Jeremy Liked

Frank Herbert
“The gift of words is the gift of deception and illusion.”
Frank Herbert, Children of Dune

Frank Herbert
“The purpose of argument is to change the nature of truth.”
Frank Herbert, Children of Dune

Frank Herbert
“Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class -- whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.”
Frank Herbert, Children of Dune

Frank Herbert
“Good governance never depends upon laws, but upon the personal qualities of those who govern. The machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery. The most important element of government, therefore, is the method of choosing leaders.”
Frank Herbert, Children of Dune
