Lessons from Jedi Master Yoda

In honor of Star Wars Day, here are the greatest lessons I learned from Master Yoda.

* “Wars not make one great.”

* “Size matters not! Judge me by my size, do you?”

* “CONCENTRATE!”  –just good every day advice. 

On daily tasks:  * “All his life he has looked away to the future…to the horizon.  Never his mind on where he was.”

On accomplishments:  * “Do or do not.  There is no try.”

On faith:  * Luke: “I can’t believe it.”          Yoda: “That is why you fail.”

On aging gracefully:  * “When 900 years old you are, look as good you will not!” 

On being organized:  * “Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has.  How embarrassing.”

On parenting:  * “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.” 

On humility:  * “Anger, fear, aggression…the dark side are they.”

* “Much to learn, you still have.”

And my favorite:  “Fear is the path to the dark side.  Fear leads to anger.  Anger leads to hate.  And hate leads to suffering.”

  1. Good quotes for certain!
    Here’s one of my favs:

    “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…” – Master Yoda

    May the Force be with you!

  2. Oh, yes. A philosophical lesson that helped a young Jedi focus. Am thinking of turning these lessons into it’s own blog….hehehe. And may the Force be with you.
