Yoda's Teaching-Yoda's Most Famous Words of Wisdom

Throughout Yoda's life, the Jedi Master probably had many, many wise sayings and advice for his apprentices and followers. Unfortunatly, most of these are not known. Those that are known, he said to Luke during his important training on Dagobah. Since then, they have become very famous among Star Wars fans or anyone who has ever seen the movie. But most forget the logic and importance behind these words of wisdom. As you read over these, remember that these sayings were made after obtaining 900 years of knowledge:

Wars not make one great.

Patience! For the Jedi it is time to eat as well.

Adventure, heh, excitement, heh, a Jedi craves not these things.

A Jedi's strengthflows from the force.

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. The dark side.

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.

A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.

The dark side is quicker, easier, more seductive.

Only different in your mind. You must unlearn what you have learned.

Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Size matters not.

Your ally is the Force. A powerful ally it is.

Life creates it [the force], makes it grow. It's energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we.

You must feel the Force around you.

Through the Force, things you will see. Other places. The future...the past. Old friends long gone.

You must learn control.

Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.

Only a fully trained Jedi Knight with the Force as his ally will conquer Vader and his Emperor.

If you choose the quick and easy path, you will become an agent of evil.

Strong is Vader. Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.

When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not. Hmm?

Vader. You must confront Vader. Then, only then, a Jedi will you be. And confront him you will.

Do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor
