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.”
