Litany Against Fear

By Frank Herbert in the Dune books:

"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. "

Used it in childbirth...

Oh. My blog is just pissing and moaning mostly. But I am literate in science. My math skills are phhhht. So I didn't study science past the basics in College. WANTED to be a scientist as a kid. Actually, I am pretty sciencey for a civilian.

Isn't that a lenticular cloud in your Userpic. See? Sciencey!

I just read "Hunters of Dune." I am ashamed to say if you slap 'Dune' on it I will read it. I was surprised that there are no Dune groups active on LJ.

Did it work for you in childbirth? Keep you from being afraid?

I remember reading three Dune books as a middle school kid....and I remember taking Herbert's insults and using them on kids at school. They didn't know what hit them. I remember thinking the first book was the only one that I'd read again, but I haven't. How did you get so hooked on Dune?

Yes, it is a lenticular cloud. I think lenticles are the coolest!
