Star Wars Challenge Day 13

Today's topic is "Favorite Quote" :)
I have a LOT of favorite quotes- from the films, from the books, and from the t.v show. Some are emotional and some are funny and both will appear here :).

Obi Wan: You were the Chosen One. It was said you would destroy the Sith, not join them. Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness.
Anakin: I HATE YOU!!!
Obi Wan: You were My brother Anakin, I loved you.
Obi Wan and Anakin in Revenge of the Sith.

Anakin: Obi-Wan! May the Force be with you.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Goodbye old friend, and May the Force be with you.
Last words they say to each other as friends. Revenge of the Sith

There is no emotion, there is peace
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge
There is no passion, there is serenity
There is no chaos, there is harmony
There is no death, there is the Force.
- The Jedi Code (Standard version of the Old Jedi Order)

Anakin: Master, I've disappointed you. I have not been very appreciative of you're training....I have been arrogant and I apologize. I've just been so frustrated with the Council.
Obi-Wan: You are strong and wise, Anakin, and I am very proud of you. I have trained you since you were a small boy. I have taught you everything I know. And you have become a far greater Jedi than I could ever hope to be.
Revenge of the Sith

"It's not the size of the Jedi or the amount of power running through her lightsaber, but the strength of her heart."
―Barriss Offee

Obi-Wan Kenobi : I promised once never to remind you,
Siri Tachi: Its not you who is reminding me, is it? So much time has past.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: And so little.
Siri Tachi: And we've changed so much.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Yes. You're more beautiful. And smarter. And stronger.
Siri Tachi: And you, you've grown sadder.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You can see that?
Siri Tachi: Forgive me if I still think I know you better than anyone else.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You do.
Obi-Wan Kenobi and Siri Tachi in Secrets of the Jedi

This is Obi-Wan Kenobi: a phenomenal pilot who doesn't like to fly. A devastating warrior, who'd rather not fight. A negotiator without peer, who'd frankly rather sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate......He is a Jedi Master, General in the Grand Army, Member of the Jedi Council........He is modest, centered, and always kind......He has become a hero......He is the ultimate Jedi......It is characteristic of Obi-Wan that he is unaware of this....and he is proud to be Anakin Skywalker's best friend.
Quotes about Obi-Wan from the Revenge of the Sith novelization.

"Blast this is why I hate flying!" Obi Wan Kenobi in Attack of the Clones

"We cannot control how we feel. Only how we choose to handle our feelings"---Qui Gon Jinn

They are closer than friends. Closer than brothers... Neither can imagine life without the other. War has forged their two lives into one... They're a team. They're the team. And both of them are sure they always will be.
Revenge of Sith novelization

The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins-but in the heart of its strength lies its weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold back.
Love is more than a candle.
Love can ignite the stars.
Revenge of the Sith adult novelization

Anakin:(in his mind) Obi-Wan, old buddy, old pal, this would be a really good time to wake up. - ROTS novel

"So this is how liberty dies? With Thunderous Applause"

Palpatine: Are all you're rescues so...entertaining? (Obi-Wan looks at Anakin, frowning. Anakin shrugs)

"There is no shame in falling, There is only shame if you refuse to rise once again."
―Pernicar (A Jedi Master who fought in the Sith Wars)

Yoda: Fear is the path to the darkside. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
-The Phantom Menace

"For Anakin, there is nothing more important than friendship. He is the most loyal man I've ever met—loyal beyond reason in fact.....I think abstractions like peace don't mean much to him. He's loyal to people, not to principles. And he expects loyalty in return. He will stop at nothing to save me, for example, because he thinks I would do the same for him(Yoda and Mace look at him)....because he knows I would do the same for him."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi (ROTS novelization)

Anakin: You worry too much.
Obi-Wan: I have too-
Anakin: -because I don't worry at all, right?
Obi-Wan: How did you know I was going to say that? - Revenge of the Sith novel

"He is like my brother...I cannot do it."

"Send me to kill the Emperor. I will not kill Anakin."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi to Yoda

Obi-Wan: What took you so long?
Anakin: Well, you know, Master, I couldn't find a speeder that I really liked...
Obi-Wan: There he is.
Anakin: ...with an open cockpit and the right speed capabilities.
Obi-Wan: If you spent as much time practicing your saber techniques as you did your wit, you'd rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.
Anakin: I thought I already did.
Obi-Wan: Only in your mind, my very young apprentice.
Attack of the Clones

"It can't be, it can't be! I can't watch any more! "
―Obi-Wan Kenobi in ROTS

"He will not let me down. He never has."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi about Anakin Skywalker in ROTS

They stood a moment, side by side.
Anakin didn't look at him; he stared into the door, through the door, searching in its shimmering depths for a hint of an unguessable future.
He couldn't imagine not being at war.
"Anakin." Obi-Wan's voice had gone soft, and his hand was warm on Anakin's arm.
"There is no other Jedi I would rather have at my side right now. No other man."
Anakin turned, and found within Obi-Wan's eyes a depth of feeling he had only rarely glimpsed in all their years together; and the pure uncomplicated love that rose up within him then felt like a promise from the Force itself.
"I...I wouldn't have it any other way, Master."
"I believe," his onetime Master said with a gently humourous look of astonishment at the words coming out of his mouth, "that you should get used to calling me Obi-Wan."
"Obi-Wan,", Anakin said, "let's go get the Chancellor."
"Yes," Obi-Wan said. "let's." - Revenge of the Sith novel

Nether pilot was wearing a helmet so Anakin could hear Obi-Wan plainly when he shouted: “For all the jinks and jokes you’ve taken me through there’s no one else I’d rather fly with.”
Anakin canted his head and smiled. “It’s about you admitted it. Can I take that to mean you’ll follow my lead without question?”
“To the best of my ability,” Obi-Wan said. “I may not always be able to remain at your wing but I won’t be far off and I’ll always have you back.”
“When I call for help you’ll come speeding to the rescue.”
“The day you call for help, I’ll know that we’re both in over our heads.”
Anakin adopted a serious look. “Obi-Wan you don’t know how many times you’ve already rescued me.”
Obi-Wan swallowed the lump that formed in his throat. “Then whatever lies ahead for us shouldn’t be a problem.”
Anakin laughed lightly. "Who'll restore peace to the galaxy is we don't?" Obi-Wan returned a tight-lipped nod.
"At least you said we." - Labyrinth of Evil

"So uncivilized..."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi

"Only Sith deal in absolutes."
--Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan: I was beginning to wonder if you got my message.
Anakin: I transmitted just as you had requested, Master. Then we decided to come and rescue you.
Obi-Wan:(looks up at his hands which are chained) Good job.
Attack of the Clones

Two lone starfighters.
Two is enough.
Though this is the end of the age of heroes.
It has saved it's best for last.
(From the Revenge of the Sith adult novelization by Matthew Stover)

Obi-Wan: Master Yoda, I gave Qui-Gon my word. I will train Anakin. Even without the approval of the Council if I must.
-The Phantom Menace

Anakin: What will happen to me now?
Obi-Wan: The Council has granted me permission to train you. You will be a Jedi....I promise.
-The Phantom Menace

Qui-Gon: You've been a good apprentice, Obi-Wan; and you're a much wiser man than I am. I foresee you will become a great Jedi Knight- The Phantom Menace

His bones were crumbling now, they were turning to ash. He was dying...he was dying. The Sith had won.
With his last breath, he smashed the holocron. And the fires went out.
-Wild Space

The crystal is the heart of the blade. The heart is the crystal of the Jedi. The Jedi is the crystal of the Force. The Force is the blade of the heart. All are intertwined: the crystal, the blade, the Jedi. You are one."
---Luminara Unduli

Obi-Wan: We took them from their homes. We promised their families-ROTS novel

"Jedi create light, but the Sith do not create darkness. They merely use the darkness that is always there."
―Mace Windu

The road is long, but it is worth the journey, for a true master of Form Three is invincible."
―Luminara Unduli on Form Three (Soresu)

Qui-Gon Jinn: You would have died for me. Your courage was extraordinary, even for a Jedi. I would be honored to accept you as my Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I accept, Master, Qui-Gon Jinn.
Qui-Gon: Of course, you would not have succeeded with your plan. I would have stopped you from dying for me.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You would not have been able to stop me, Master
(They stare and smile at each other)
Jedi Apprentice: The Dark Rival

"Let her go, Anakin! Let...her...go!"
―Obi-Wan Kenobi, ordering Darth Vader to release Padmé Amidala

Obi-Wan: Padme. Move away from him.
Padme: Obi-Wan? No.
Anakin: You. You brought him here.
Padme: Anakin?
Obi-Wan: Padme, move away. He's not who you think he is. He will harm you. - ROTS novel

Sun suddenly burst through the clouds overhead, dazzling Qui-Gon's sight. The glare caused Obi-Wan's features to blur and dissolve. For a moment, Qui-Gon didn't see the boy. He saw an elder man, alone, living on a desolate planet, his only companions his dark memories. Qui-Gon felt the same shiver he'd experienced in O-Vieve's presence. Did he just have a vision of himself as an elder? Was that the dark vision O-Vieve had seen for him? Then a sudden truth pierced him. 'That isn't me. It is Obi-Wan.'
Jedi Apprentice: The Fight for Truth

“Overlooked as a Padawan, he was to become one of the most revered Masters of all.”
- Quote on the back of "The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi"

Obi-Wan:(putting his hand on his Master's shoulder) Let me help you, Master.
Qui-Gon: There is no help for me now. There is only revenge.
- Jedi Apprentice: The Death of Hope

Obi-Wan: Are you angry at the pack, or the table? Or me? - Obi-Wan to Siri in "Secrets of the Jedi"

Obi-Wan: You kill without thought or feeling. But I am not you. - Secrets of the Jedi.

At last he had learned the secret that Qui-Gon had always had to teach him. It had taken him years of loss to learn it. It had taken a death that had sent him to his knees. But he had finally learned it. He had learned to live with an open heart.
- the end of "Secrets of the Jedi"

Obi-Wan: You said torment.
Anakin: Excuse me?
Obi-Wan: You said, 'The things that normally torment you don't bother you at all.' Not that thing that trouble you, but torment you. It was a strong word. What torments you, Anakin?
Anakin: Perhaps I spoke for strongly than I meant to
Obi-Wan: That is not an answer.
Anakin: Sometimes I don't want to be the Chosen One!
Obi-Wan: That is not surprising. Many gifts can be burdens.
Anakin: The Force is so strong. I can feel it so much. I feel so much. I don't want to feel so much! Why am I chosen? Why is it me? Can't I refuse it? Can't you let me refuse it? Can't you take it away?
Obi-Wan: Anakin-
Anakin: Take it from me. Please, Master.(the depth of shock and compassion showed in his eyes, in the way he gently placed his hands on Anakin's shoulders)
Obi-Wan: My Padawan. I would do anything for you. I would bear your burdens for you if I could. But I cannot. But I will help you.. I will always help you. I will not leave you. Things between us have not run smoothly lately. But you must never doubt my commitment to you.
Anakin: And mine to you.
- Jedi Quest- The Moment of Truth

--Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Citadel Rescue

"I'm not testing you, Obi-Wan. Life tests you! Every day it brings you new chances for triumph or defeat. And if you pass the test, it doesn't make you a Jedi. It makes you human."
―Qui-Gon Jinn, to Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan: And how do I get there?
The Father: You cannot interfere.
Obi-Wan: The way I see it, if we were not supposed to interfere, Ahsoka and I wouldn't be here in the first place! (turns to Ahsoka) Look after the ship, I'm going to find Anakin(gets on speeder and flies away).
---The Ghost of Mortis

"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… [nudging Luke's arm] crude matter! You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock… everywhere! Even between the land and the ship."
---Yoda in "The Empire Strikes Back

Obi-Wan: There powers are too strong for us, Anakin! Save Ahsoka!
--Star Wars: The Clone Wars- Overlords

"Every Task Requires full attention," she told Siri sternly. Then she turned back to Qui Gon and murmured,
"But I'm having trouble myself"
---Jedi Apprentice book 13

"An Important lesson for Padawans" Adi said, overhearing them.
Obi Wan threw a glance at Qui Gon
"And for Stubborn Masters"
Qui Gon took a placid sip of tea.
"I have no idea what your talking about" He said.

Girl: Whats with the funny Clothing?
(looks down at Jedi Robes)
Obi Wan Kenobi: It's my new bathrobe.
-Jedi Apprentice-The Threat Within

Siri: For you, Slam
Obi-Wan(looking at robe in disgust) Questionable taste, to say the least.
Siri: Tyro said that Slam is well known as a dandy. You have to wear it.
(with a look of total disgust, Obi-Wan puts on the robe)
Siri: Now you need some boots to match. (picks up a pair) Here.
Obi-Wan: No......
Siri: Oh, for galaxy's sake, don't be such a stick-in-the-swamp. Don't you want to capture Zan Arbor?
Obi-Wan:(looking at himself in the mirror: I really hate this. I look like a full feathered idiot!
Siri: I think you look....incredible.(breaks out into laughing.
Obi-Wan: So glad to amuse. (finds Siri's outfit) There you go, Valadon.
Siri:(takes outfit) Where's the rest of it?
Obi-Wan: I'm afraid that's it.
Siri: I'm not going to wear this!(tosses the garment away)
Obi-Wan: Don't be such a stick-in-the-swamp! Don't you want to capture Zan Arbor? (Siri pulls the outfit on over her tunic)
Obi-Wan: I don't think that's how you're supposed to wear it.
Siri: We're not on Romin yet!
-----Jedi Quest: The Changing of the Guard

Obi-Wan:(in his mind) Oh, dear. I seem to have fallen down a ravine.
-Wild Space

"Jedi do not fight for peace. That's only a slogan, and is as misleading as slogans always are. Jedi fight for civilization, because only civilization creates peace. We fight for justice because justice is the fundamental bedrock of civilization: an unjust civilization is built upon sand. It does not long survive a storm."
―Mace Windu

Luke: "Then I am alone. I am the last of the Jedi." Obi-Wan: "Not the last of the old Jedi, Luke. The first of the new."

Depa: You can't-you can't just forgive me.

Obi-Wan:" Relax, your going to love it."

I know. I still have much to learn.-Obi-Wan

  1. very nice quotes. must have taken awhile to get all written down. good job.

  2. Thank you! I had some on my Facebook account but I also had to find some in books and online.

  3. Love love love this. The part in Changing of the Guard when Obi-Wan is donning Slam's clothes is so fun. :D There are a couple books mentioned here that I must read now. :D

  4. Thank you very much! I just LOVE that scene in The Changing of the Guard- very humorous. Hope you enjoy the Star Wars books you were wanting to read. Which ones were they?

  5. The Revenge of the Sith novel (I've read part but had to return it to the library), Secrets of the Jedi (almost finished but same thing, had to be returned), The Death of Hope (haven't been able to get my hands on that yet), and considering Labyrinth of Evil. :)

  6. You should read those books! They are all really AWESOME :). I'd also suggest Wild Space- Obi-Wan is really cool in that one.

  7. I read Wild Space once - Obi-Wan was cool! Loved all the Jedi Apprentice references, but it was kind of intense at the end. Once I work through all the other books I want to read (and reread), I'll try to get those!

  8. Okay, awesome! :) They're really good!

  9. And I also loved the Jedi Apprentice references in Wild Space. And Obi-Wan was just SO COOL! Karen Miller, at least in this novel, wrote Obi-Wan very well( I also love how Jude Watson and Matthew Stover write him)
