"This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away, to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was, hmm? What he was doing. Hmm. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things." ―Yoda, before training Luke Skywalker[src]
"Like fire across the galaxy the Clone Wars spread."
"When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not, hmm?" ―Yoda, grown weak with old age[src]
"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, lecturing Luke on the Force[src]
Yoda: "Yes. We would like our meal comped." Waitress: "Your meal will be comped." Mace Windu: "Stop that! What happened to only using the Force for knowledge and defense?" Yoda: "I was. Defending my wallet I was from the evil price hikes."
"Secret, shall I tell you? Grand Master of Jedi Order am I. Won this job in a raffle I did, think you? 'How did you know, how did you know, Master Yoda?' Master Yoda knows these things. His job it is." ―MasterYoda, to Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy[src]
"Soon will I rest. Yes, forever sleep. Earned it, I have."
Dooku: "What do you want? Tell me what you want and I will show you how the dark side can help you achieve it. Do you want friends? The dark side can compel them for you. Lovers? The dark side understands passion in a way you never have. Do you want riches—endless life—deep wisdom…?"
Droid: "This bowl contains a substance my sensors cannot identify as food. Please wait here, and I will bring you one of today's specials."
Yoda: [grabs edge of bowl] "Ignorant machine! Not on menu, my food ever is. Made special for me, was this!"
Droid: [starts tug-of-war over bowl] "Preliminary readings cannot confirm the edibility of the contents of this bowl. Please wait here, and I will bring you one of today's specials."
Yoda: [whaps droid with cane] "Back! Mine! Go away!"
Droid: "You are bound to enjoy today's special. Baked dru'un slices in fish sauce. Wait here, and I will bring you some." [Yoda hits droid again; tug-of-war results in bowl shattering and contents flying everywhere] [with satisfaction] "Oh, dear, a spill. Let me clean that up for you."
Yoda: "A Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger. Fear. Aggression. The dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow. Quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice."
Luke: "Vader… Is the dark side stronger?"
Yoda: "No! No…no. Quicker. Easier. More seductive."
Luke: "But how am I to know the good side from the bad?"
Yoda: "You will know, when you are calm. At peace. Passive."
"An infinite mystery is the Force. The more we learn, the more we discover how much we do not know." ―Yoda[src]
Yoda: "Only a fully trained Jedi knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor. If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path, as Vader did, you will become an agent of evil."
"Believe I do, Senator, that a free society must guard its freedom zealously, lest wake one morning it does to find all freedom disappeared." ―Yoda, to Bail Organa[src]
Yoda: "Like a river, the Force flows through you. Learned much you have, in these past three months. And more quickly than any student I have taught before."
Leia: "Even my father?"
Yoda: "Strong was the Force with Anakin, before he became Vader. Yet impatient and stubborn he was. Constantly pushing to excel beyond his ability. More sublime, your approach has been." [Leia kills a swamp slug that sprays water everywhere] "Yet learned you have not the hazards of using a superheated blade against a foe made mainly of water."
"What use saving the galaxy is if so much hurt and pain one must cause? The Jedi way that is not. No. Hurt you I won't. Trust you I will, trust you…and the Force. The Jedi way that is. Be good to speak again it will." ―Jedi MasterYoda reconsiders mind-wiping Arhul Hextrophon to protect his secret after the latter finds him on Dagobah[src]
Luke: "I saw a city in the clouds."
Yoda: "Mmm. Friends you have there."
Luke: "They were in pain."
Yoda: "It is the future you see."
Luke: "The future... Will they die?"
Yoda: "Difficult to say. Always in motion is the future."
