Throughout a movie and 6 seasons Star Wars The Clone Wars gave us a lot of inspirational quotes. Both with its opening Fortune Jedi Cookies at the beginning of each episodes and also with the dialogues between the characters. This shows once again how amazing the writing for this series was. This post gathers some of the best inspirational quotes that the Emmy-Winning series gave us throughout the years.
I will first start with the Fortune Jedi Cookies. Quoting each of the fortune cookies would take too much time so here is a selection of the finest jedi proverbs.
The best one is probably the one from 05×20 The Wrong Jedi. This one is always to keep in your mind :
01×11 Dooku Captured: “The winding path to peace is always a worthy one, regardless of how many turns it takes.”
01×12 The Gungan General : “Fail with honor rather than succeed by fraud.”
01×16 Hidden Enemy: “Truth enlightens the mind, but won’t always bring happiness to your heart.”
02×05 Landing At Point Rain: “Believe in yourself, or no one else will.”
02×15 Senate Murders: “Searching for the truth can be easy. Accepting the truth can be hard.”
02×13 Voyage of Temptation: “Fear not for the future, weep not for the past.”
03×05 Corruption: “The challenge of hope is to overcome corruption.”
03×20 Citadel Rescue: “Without honor, victory is hollow.”
04×04 Shadow Warrior: “Who a person truly is cannot be seen with the eye.”
04×10 Carnage of Krell: “Our actions define our legacy.”
04×14 A Friend in Need: “Friendship shows us who we really are.”
04×18 Crisis on Naboo: “Trust is the greatest of gifts, but it must be earned.”
05×03 Front Runners: “To seek something is to believe in its possibility.”
05×06 The gathering: “He who faces himself, finds himself.”
05×07 A Test of Strenght: “The young are often underestimated.” Something that I think is totally true nowadays.
05×08 Bound For Rescue: “When we rescue others, we rescue ourselves.”
05×18 The Jedi Who Knew Too Much: “Courage begins by trusting oneself.”
06×04 Orders: “The popular belief isn’t always the correct one.” Something that can be applied to the prequel haters ideology who are quite vocal on the internet. The prequel lovers (which I’m part of) are a much more bigger fandom that the haters pretend to say, it is just the prequel lovers are not as vocal as the haters and that the haters are much more put in the spotlight than the lovers. When you don’t love something, don’t bash it, talk about the things you love.
06×05 An Old Friend: “To love, is to trust. To trust is to believe.”
06×08 The Disappeared Part 1: “Without darkness there cannot be light.”
06×09 The Disappeared Part 2: “Wisdom is born in fools as well as wise men.”
06×13 Sacrifice: “Facing all that you fear will free you from yourself.”
Now I’m going to give some of the best inspirational quotes directly from characters dialogues :
The Clone Wars Movie:
“A very wise jedi once said nothing happens by accident.” – Anakin
“Master Yoda has a saying: Old sins cast long shadows.” – Ahsoka
“Your past can ruin your future if you allow it. But you forget it was master Skywalker who said: I don’t want to talk about my past.” – Anakin For this one which do you prefer, Yoda’s saying or Skywalker’s saying ?
Master Yoda is right that you can’t let your past ruin your future but Anakin is also right in the way that he had a difficult past and talking about it is probably not the best thing as it can re-open wounds from the past.
01×10 Lair of Grievous
“To answer power with power the jedi way this is not, in this war a danger there is of losing who we are.” – Yoda, you can easily replace jedi by human in generals.
01×13 Jedi Crash
“Don’t lose a thousand lives just to save one.” – Aayla
This following dialogue is a very wise one and it is something to think about.
“What difference does it make who started the war and who only wants to end it? No side is free of fault. It takes two to fight.” – Tee Watt Kaa
“But isn’t liberty worth fighting for?” – Aayla Secura
“But is it worth killing for?” – Tee Watt Kaa
01×14 Defenders of Peace
“Sometimes it takes courage to stick to one’s believes” – Aayla Secura
“To die for one’s people is a great sacrifice. To live for one’s people, an even greater sacrifice.” – Riyo Chuchi
02×14 Duchess of Mandalore
“Sometimes the line between friend and foe is blurred.” – Obi-Wan
03×16 Altar of Mortis
“There’s always hope.” – Anakin
03×20 Citadel Rescue
“Unfortunately war tends to distort our point of view. If we sacrifice our code, even for victory, we may lose that which is most important: our honor.” – Obi-Wan
04×09 Plan of Dissent
“Live to fight another day, boys. Live to fight another day.” – Hardcase
“The Danger is not to know the truth.” – Yoda
“No longer certain that one ever does win a war I am. For in fighting the battles, the bloodshed, already lost we have.” – Yoda
