8. Quick, gimme a Dune quote!

The Litany Against Fear

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.

An issue I have with the questions of this meme is the implied familiarity with fairly recent sci-fi series on television, many of which are inaccessible to those who don't have cable TV. Implicit in this is knowledge of Babylon 5 and Farscape, which I only have a bit of familiarity with, mostly from having seen some episodes on DVD. I had to do some web searches to even UNDERSTAND some of what was being refered to in the questions! :-/ GRUMP!!

And there was little reference to literary SF too -- DOUBLE GRUMP!! There's more to science fiction than just TV and movies . . .

You are quite correct. Therefore, it is your mission, since you took an interest, to provide the same sort of questions that will highlight written SF. good Luck Persephone!! I look forward to answering your list of questions.
