The structure of this story is so awesome! It's like three books in one. The first third consists of assassins training in the desert, second is city life and court intrigue, and third is a good old fashioned epic heroic quest.

Markus Herz

“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”

Frank Herbert
“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 permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
