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

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

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.
