Teaser Tuesday (23 August)

(Hrrmm, I really should finish my review of The Big Rock Candy Mountain!)

Teaser Tuesday is a bookish thing hosted by Should Be Reading, in which people share an excerpt from their current read.

“Attack now or never; with a single ship, or all the force in the Empire; by military force or economic pressure; by candid declaration of war or by treacherous ambush. Do whatever you wish in your fullest exercse of free well. You will still fail.”

“Because of Hari Seldon’s dead hand?”

“Because of the dead hand of the mathematics of human behavior that can neither be stopped, swerved, nor delayed.”

The two faced each other in deadlock, until the general stepped back.

He said simply, “I’ll take that challenge. It’s a dead hand against a living will.”                                                    

p. 23 Foundation and Empire. From The Foundation Trilogy. I read this a few years ago but I had an itch to read the original trilogy again.
