Frank Herbert (1920-1986) created the most beloved novel in the annals of science fiction, Dune.

-"Why do you test for humans?" he asked.
--"To set you free."
--"Once men turned their thinking over to machines in hope that this would set them free.
   But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them."
--"Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a man's mind," Paul quoted.
--"Right out of the Butlerian Jihad and the Orange Catholic Bible," she said.
