“Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope” is turning 36 today. It is the only Star Wars series film in which Jedi Master Yoda does not make an appearance. Yoda is not mentioned in the movie, as the character had not yet been created. But his succesfully part in the following film “The Empire Strikes Back” made him one of the most important character of the George Lucas saga. Yoda was one of the most renowned Jedi Masters in in the Star Wars movies.  A teacher and spiritual advisor, Yoda is most known for training Luke Skywalker to harness the power of the Force.  The wisdom of the universe is all around him. To inspire and celebrate the release of the Star Wars first movie on 25 May 1977, here are some Yoda most famous quotes. May the Force be with you!

Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

When you look at the dark side, careful you must be. For the dark side looks back.

Always pass on what you have learned.

Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.

You think Yoda stops teaching, just because his student does not want to hear? A teacher Yoda is. Yoda teaches like drunkards drink, like killers kill.

Secret, shall I tell you?  Grand Master of Jedi Order am I. Won this job in a raffle I did, think you? “How did you know, how did you know, Master Yoda?” Master Yoda knows these things. His job it is.

The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see the light, the future is.

In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.

Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

Always in motion is the future.

Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?  Hmm?  Hmm.  And well you should not.  For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force.

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

Named must your fear be before banish it you can.

You will find only what you bring in.

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.

A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things.

Always two there are, a master and an apprentice.

Already know you that which you need.  

Luke: I don’t believe it.  Yoda: That is why you fail.

You will know (the good from the bad) when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.

Many of the truths that we cling to depend on our point of view.

A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.

And well you should not. For my ally in the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. It’s energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we…(Yoda pinches Luke’s shoulder)…not this crude matter. (a sweeping gesture) You must feel the Force around you. (gesturing) Here, between you…me…the tree…the rock…everywhere! Yes, even between this land and that ship!

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

Clear your mind must be, if you are to find the villains behind this plot.

I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience.

Truly how wonderful the mind of a child is.

You must unlearn what you have learned.

Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.

To answer power with power, the Jedi way this is not. In this war, a danger there is, of losing who we are.

Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless.

Blind we are, if creation of this clone army we could not see.

Ohhh. Great warrior. Wars not make one great.
