We’ll add the best quotes once the series is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.
Gaal Dornick: When I was a child, at the edge of the galaxy, I heard stories about a man who could forecast the future. But the story remained dark to me until many years later. Until it became my story. Until it became the only story.
Hari Seldon: You’re familiar with my work, psychohistory?
Gaal Dornick: Every mathematician has read your theory.
Hari Seldon: It’s not a theory. It’s the future of mankind expressed in numbers. And the empire won’t like the future I predict.
Man: History is littered with charlatans and false messiahs.
Brother Dusk: We should kill them.
Brother Day: We can murder the man, but what about the movement, brother? Martyrs tend to have a long half-life.
Gaal Dornick: His math was right. The empire is dying.
Hari Seldon: Wars will be endless. A thousand worlds reduced to cinders.
Hari Seldon: Change is frightening. Especially to those in power. But we can soften the fall.
Gaal Dornick: So what’s the plan?
Hari Seldon: Many years from now, if humanity is to climb from the ashes, the coming generations will need the knowledge to build upon, a foundation.
Gaal Dornick: We must preserve only the most essential pieces of civilization. Deciding what is remembered, what is forgotten.
Gaal Dornick: This is the plan. We’re not turning around now.
Man: We are now staring down the barrel of a crisis.
