On the Force:

"Concentrate. Feel the Force flow. Not outside or inside, but a part of all it is. Through the Force, things you will see. Reacges across time and space it does. Other places. The future... the past. Old friends long gone. Always in motion is the future."

"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? 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 crude matter. You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you... me... the tree... the rock... everywhere."

"In balance is the Force. The Dark and the Light. With out one, there is no other. The Dark Side, tempting it is. Quick, easy at first, but a trap is the Dark Side. Corrupting, evil. Once you start down the Dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. For the Light Side, patience you need. Control. Peace and harmony it is."

On Jedi Knights:

"A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. Adventure. Heh!. Excitement. heh! A Jedi craves not these things."

"A Jedi's strength from the Force"

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

"For the Jedi, there is no emotion..."

On war:

"Great warriors? Wars not make on great"

On the darkside:

"Beware the darkside. Anger, fear, aggression. The Darkside of the Force are shy. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Comsume you it will."

"The darkside in not stronger. No. Quicker, easier, more seductive. you will know the good from the bad when you are calm, at peace. Passive."

"If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path, you will become an agent of evil"

"Don't give in to hate. That leads to the darkside"

On training:

"No different. Only different in your mind"

"Many truths we cling to, greatly to our own point to view they depend."

"There is no why. Clear your mind of questions. Then you will understand."

On using the Force:

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

On belief:

"You do not believe. That is why you fail."

Various Others...

Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi:

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.

For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times, before the Empire.

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

Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn:

Feel, don't think, use your instincts.

Don't center on your anxiety... Keep your concentration here and now where it belongs.

Be mindful of the Living Force

Teachings of Master Skywalker:

Master: In researching the Corellian Jedi I saw a name - probably an ancestor of yours. You may have even named for him. He was Keiran Halcyon. You can use his name. It is close enough to your own for you to respond to it, yet far enough away to give you the cover you need.

Student: It is dishonorable for me to strike someone who is defenseless Master: Then, if you will not strike, he has won. Won without striking a blow. That is a lesson for you to learn.

Master: Remember, today you are in your infancy in the Force. The lessons learned here are but the beginning

I have trained many students. It has been my quest to bring back the Jedi Knights. To defend the Republics much as they did in the past. I have lost many students along the way. And I will lost many more...

My place is here with the other trainees, helping them to become strong. These are the next generation, the only way the Jedi Knights will be reborn in the galaxy.
