“You must unlearn what you have learned”LUKE ”I don’t believe it”
YODA ”That is why you fail”
“Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering”
“Master Obi-Wan has lost a planet, how embarrassing, how embarrassing”
“There is no why—clear your mind of questions”
LUKE I’m looking for a great warrior…
YODA Ahhh! A great warrior. (laughs and shakes his head)
Wars not make one great.
YODA Soon will I rest. Yes, forever sleep. Earned it, I have.
Yoda sits himself on his bed, with great effort.
LUKE Master Yoda, you can’t die.
YODA Strong am I with the Force… but not that strong! Twilight is upon me and soon night must fall. That is the way of things … the way of the Force.
LUKE But I need your help. I’ve come back to complete the training.
YODA No more training do you require. Already know you that which you need. Remember, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.
Ready, are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained! A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.
(to the invisible Ben, indicating Luke)
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. Hmph. Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these things.
(turning to Luke)
You are reckless!
Run! Yes. A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger… fear… aggression. The dark side 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.
You will know. When you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
No, no, there is no why. Nothing more will I teach you today. Clear your mind of questions. Mmm. Mmmmmmmm.
No! No different! Only different in your mind. You must unlearn what you have learned.
No! Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.
Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hm? Mmmm.
And well you should not.For my ally in 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…(Yoda pinches Luke’s shoulder)… not this crude matter.
(a sweeping gesture) You must feel the Force around you.(gesturing)
Here, between you… me… the tree… the rock… everywhere! Yes, even between this land and that ship!
Yoda turns toward the X-wing fighter. With his eyes closed and his head bowed, he raises his arm and points at the ship., the fighter rises above the water and moves forward as Artoo beeps in terror and scoots away.. The entire X-wing moves majestically, surely, toward the shore. Yoda stands on a tree root and guides the fighter carefully down toward the beach. stares in astonishment as the fighter settles down onto the shore. He walks toward Yoda.
Concentrate… feel the Force flow. Yes. Good. Calm, yes. Through the Force, things you will see. Other places. The future… the past. Old friends long gone.
Hmm. Control, control. You must learn control.
Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.
Hard to see, the dark side is. Discover who this assassin is, we must.
See through you, we can.
Fear is the path to the dark side… fear leads to anger… anger leads to hate.. hate leads to suffering.
ANAKIN : (a little angry) What’s that got to do with anything?
YODA : Eveything. Fear is the path to the dark side… fear leads to anger… anger leads to hate.. hate leads to suffering.
ANAKIN : (angrily) I am not afraid!
YODA : A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. I sense much fear in you.
Always two there are….no more…no less. A master and an apprentice.
