So my son comes home the other day and noted that I should be watching a Stars Wars movie. “Why?” I asked him. He responded, “because today is May 4th.” I still wasn’t catching on, and so I said, “what does May 4th have to do with my needing to watch a Star Wars Movie?” The response I received after that was one of those “are you kidding me-you really don’t know?” looks and tones as he slowly intoned the answer…”You know dad, may the fourth-be-with-you…” “Ahhhh, I replied.”

In light of May-the-fourth-be-with-you, tonight’s quotes all come from various Star Wars characters dispensing their wisdom, idioms and metaphors. There really are some great thoughts here. If you have a favorite Star Wars quote leave it a s a comment!


Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.  ~Yoda

A Jedi gains power through understanding and a Sith gains understanding through power.  ~Palpatine

Who’s the more foolish: the fool, or the fool who follows him?  ~Obi-Wan Kenobi

The fear of loss is a path to the Dark Side.  ~Yoda

The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.  ~Obi-Wan Kenobi

We seem to be made to suffer. It’s our lot in life.  ~C-3PO

Aaaaaaargh!  ~Chewbacca

I’m Luke Skywalker, I’m here to rescue you!  ~Luke Skywalker

All who gain power are afraid to lose it, even the Jedi.  ~Palpatine

“Luke: What’s in there?
Yoda: Only what you take with you.”

Named must your fear be before banish it you can.  ~Yoda

Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.  ~Yoda

Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, farm boy.  ~Han Solo

Your focus determines your reality.  ~Qui-Gon Jinn

Mom, you said that the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other.  ~Anakin Skywalker

May the Force be with you.
