This is a selection of the best Yoda quotes. Yoda, the captivating and wise Jedi character created by George Lucas, appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy, “Star Wars Episode V,” and“The Empire Strikes Back.” Yoda was definitely the greatest Jedi Master of all the time in the Star Wars world. Lucas also confirmed that Star Wars philosophy was influenced by Joseph Campbell. Dr. Campbell was an American mythologist whose work was inspired, among other influences, by Taoism. This is probably why Yoda’s quotes much like Jabba's interior design are, indeed, timeless. 

"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." Fear is a big motivating factor. Sometimes, it motivates people to go to the dark side of their character. Once on the dark side, this may lead people to anger, and anger against someone or something specific may lead to hatred. Hatred invariably leads to suffering.

“May the Force be with you.” May the best in the universe be with you, whatever you call it: a divinity, an inner strength, a spiritual guide, etc. This is a modern way to wish someone good luck. 

“You must unlearn what you have learned.” It’s impossible to get superior results if the same old rules or concepts are applied over and over again. Sometimes, it’s necessary to give up or forget what has been done for years, in order to achieve better results. 

“You will know (the good from the bad) when you are calm, at peace. Passive.” Making important decisions in a moment of rage, desperation, or anxiety will lead to worse results. Guaranteed. A minute of anger can damage a relationship or anything else worthwhile forever.  It is better to wait for calm and make a detailed evaluation about your choices and the paths available. 

“Strong am I with the force.” This is a positive affirmation.  . Identifying and mastering your inner force, whatever that may be (skills, convictions, faith, etc.), will provide you with originality, individuality, and success. 

"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." Success depends on your talents and how well you take advantage of them, not on physical attributes such as size.  A brilliant brain can belong to anybody. It doesn’t matter if the person is tall or short.

"Always in motion is the future." The future is always changing. There is no such thing as one definitive destiny for every person. The actions you take in the present, will affect your future, for e good or bad.

“Always pass on what you have learned.” There is a feeling of pleasure and pride when people share anything to others in need, even if it’s something small.
