The inspiration for this conversation from Chapter 5 of The Red String, Vol. 1 of the Days of the Guardian series,  comes from Frank Herbert, the author of the classic science fiction novel, Dune.  Of course, the quote is not complete and taken out of context by the warped educational system of the Days of the Guardian world.

Frank Herbert
