Yes. A Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware 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.
Yoda to Luke - episode V:the empire strikes back
so did you know that according to wookieepedia, the portal of all things wookiee and other star war cultural phenomena - today is star wars day - may the fourth be with you!
according to the entry, typical festivities include inviting fellow star war aficionados over for a party where the group watches the series in order - of course since it is a party eating, drinking and playing with star wars toys is also the order of the day.
here at casa mouse,unfortunately we only have vhs copies of the first three star wars films (which in terms of the series are actually episodes IV, V, and VI) alas, we no longer have an operational vcr, so we're out of luck. since I didn't know that today was star wars day until this morning when I read my writer's almanac entry, I really didn't do any planning in terms of inviting fellow star war lovers over - oh well, next year we'll plan ahead!
more yoda wisdom, clips from all the star war films. much thanks to christopher matar for putting together this film collage!
