The Sleeper Must Awaken
The Sleeper Must Awaken! The sleeper must awaken. If we never challenge ourselves, dare to be more, dare to achieve more, dare to take risks, dare to make ourselves uncomfortable, or dare to fail there will always be something inside us; that life altering, life lasting power to excel that sleeps inside us.

The events of Dune take place in the far future, long after an AI uprising known as the Butlerian Jihad. The Bene Gesserit Sisterhood is one example of this, an order of women focusing on physical and mental training. Civilization is organized in a kind of feudal system headed by the Padishah Emperor, with the ruling class being a group of noble houses that make up a body called the Landsraad. The other major entity is the Spacing Guild, a group that holds a monopoly on all interstellar travel and banking. As the novel begins, House Atreides has just been given stewardship of the planet Arrakis, also known as Dune, the source of the valuable spice melange, a geriatric agent which extends the life of those who take it. House Atreides is essentially at war with House Harkonnen, who previously held control of the desert planet. In the week before their departure to Arrakis, when all the final scurrying about had reached a nearly unbearable frenzy, an old crone came to visit the mother of the boy, Paul.
