Jedi characters Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor,) in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
The Jedi are the main protagonists in the Star Wars universe. They are depicted as an ancient monastic, academic, meritocratic and paramilitary organization whose origin dates back approximately 25,000 years before the events of the first film released in the franchise.

The Jedi Order mostly consists of polymaths: teachers, philosophers, scientists, engineers, physicians, diplomats and warriors. The Jedi value knowledge and wisdom, and serve others through acts of charity, citizenship, and volunteerism; this ideology is a recurring theme in the Star Wars universe. The Jedi denounce emotions as the root of mortal suffering; they believe fear, anger and love causes sentient beings to lash out in conflict and impede rational action to do what is right. Their traditional weapon is the lightsaber, a device which generates a blade-like plasma powered by a kyber crystal. The fictional organization has inspired a real-world new religious movement, Jediism.

“The greatest teacher, failure is.” – Yoda

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.” — Yoda

“Do. Or do not. There is no try.” — Yoda

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.” — Yoda

“When gone am I, the last of the Jedi will you be. The Force runs strong in your family. Pass on what you have learned.” — Yoda

“If once you start down the dark side, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will” — Yoda

“If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path, as Vader did, you will become an agent of evil.” — Yoda

“Patience you must have” — Yoda

“You must unlearn what you have learned.” — Yoda

“You will know when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.” — Yoda

“Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.” — Yoda

“The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.” — Yoda

“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.” — Yoda

“Wars not make one great.” — Yoda

“Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.” — Yoda

“Mom, you said that the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other.” — Anakin Skywalker

“Your overconfidence is your weakness.”  — Luke Skywalker

“You can’t stop the change, any more than you can stop the suns from setting.” — Shmi Skywalker
