Luke: "What's in there?"
Yoda: "Only what you take with you."
Luke Skywalker, training with Yoda[src]

Yoda: "Very mysterious."
Luke Skywalker and Yoda[src]

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?"
