Happy Star Wars Day! (May the Fourth Be with You)

posted by vreiss

yodaI’ve just learned that today, May 4th, is Star Wars Day–get it? (May the fourth be with you!) Love that! In honor of that force that illuminates and supports and creates all, here are some inspiring, wise Star Wars quotes. Oh, and if you want to really distract yourself, check out this way-cool Yoda translator!

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” – Yoda

“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.” – Yoda

LUKE: “I can’t believe it.”

YODA: “That is why you fail.”

“No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda

      “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.” – Darth Vader

It’s against my programming to impersonate a deity.” – C3PO

HAN SOLO: “Who are you?”

PRINCESS LEIA: “Someone who loves you.”

“Named must your fear be before banish it you can.” – Yoda

“May the Force be with you.” – Yoda

Waking Up to Your Dreams (by Wendy Schuman)
Are you a frustrated dreamer? I know I am.

I want to linger in that realm and tap into the guidance and insight rising from a wi
