Lust's passion will be served; it demands, it militates, it tyrannizes. - Marquis de Sade

Lust... one side of me calls it such a base emotion. Lust is hardly better than fear, in the opinions of the Bene Gesserit. It is something that makes humans scarcely better than animals, driven by instinct and passion instead of reason and intelligence... lust is something barely to be considered. And I have seen its ravages take my aunt, tear her away from everything she had been into the terrible grip of her overshadowing --

I don't want to think about that. About the way that the lust for continued "life" helped my maternal grandfather take my aunt how it almost allowed mother to take me. If Leto hadn't helped push her back-- but he did. He always will..

...and yet I am also Fremen, and Fremen passion runs hot and strong, always. It is a most careful walk on the dunes of emotion to take, balancing the truth of one side, while not abandoning the other.
