* The first ''Dune'' book puts various quotations from in-universe documents as epigraphs for the chapters, which often cryptically foreshadow things that happen later in the book. Thus, the quotes sort of work the same way Paul's visions of the future do: The reader knows something in advance about later plot points, but often doesn't have the context to work out their significance yet.
