The Great Jedi Quote Post.

I love the Jedi – in fact, I identify as Jedi in a religious sense. Aside from the cool swishy robes and – obviously – lightsabers, one of the things I love most about them is their outlook on life. The Jedi Code is a pretty good one to live by, and some of the quotes attributed to various Jedi are pretty deep.

So, I’m attempting (in what will probably be an ongoing project) to catalogue the best Jedi quotes, from all incarnations of them (canon ones at least), in one place, both for my reference, and for others, because you can never find that one quote you half-remember when you need it! If you have any suggestions for the list, drop us a mail or post in the comments, making sure to state the Jedi responsible, and if possible where it’s from – the ones we like will be added to our own little web holocron of Jedi wisdom!

 

Master Yoda

Grandmaster Yoda:

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.” (Episode III: Revenge of the Sith)

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” (Episode I: The Phantom Menace)

“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.”

“Do, or do not. There is no try” (Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back)

“To be Jedi is to face the truth, and choose. Give off light, or darkness, Padawan. Be a candle, or the night.” (Dark Rendezvous)

“When you look at the dark side, careful you must be. For the dark side looks back.”

 

 

Obi-wan kenobi

Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi:

“Many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view” (Episode VI: Return of the Jedi)

A great leap forward often requires first taking two steps back.” (Clone Wars: Mystery of a Thousand Moons)

Missions are not about winning and losing. They are about leaving good behind. (Jedi Apprentice Special Edition: Deceptions)

 

 

anakin-skywalker-with-jedi-lightsaber

Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker:

“If you don’t crash once in a while, you’re probably not in the fight” (Hero of the Confederacy)

 

 

Jedi Knight Luminara Unduli

Jedi Knight Luminara Unduli:

“When the way before you is not clear, let your actions be guided by the Force.”

“One can fail at a task but still learn the lesson.” (Medstar 1: Battle Surgeons)

 

Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn

Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn:

“Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.” (Episode I: The Phantom Menace)

“The ability to speak does not make you intelligent” (Episode I: The Phantom Menace)

“Life does not treat you fairly or unfairly, it merely is. It is up to each of us to be fair, or unfair

A Series of Series Part 2

In my last post I wrote about the television series that I have watched recently and I got up to Pretty Little Liars which is back on! Horray!
But going back to the break from it until now; I stumbled upon American Horror Story on Netflix and I almost didn’t watch it. I’d never heard of it before and I made the assumption that it’d be really cheesy and have a really annoying cast but I gave it a go anyway and I am so glad I did because it was phenomenal. I was about ten minutes it when I realised that I was already hooked and from then on I couldn’t wait for each episode and I kept trying to work out where it’d go from there and it was constantly on my mind. There are currently five seasons and as far as I know there will be a 6th. I’ve only seen Murder House, Asylum, Coven and Freak Show but I am looking forward to seeing Hotel. Each season is a different story so the first one is Murder House which is about a family moving in to a really big, old fashioned and relatively creepy looking house which they soon discover is haunted. It’s actually quite a complex storyline involving an enormous cast and various back stories, flash backs and so on but it is put together so flawlessly it’s like a work of art. The main cast all end up playing multiple roles in each season and you might have them recurring in each season or take a break through one and appear later on but it really shows how incredible their acting skills are because you either fall in love or hate a character and then see that actor in a different role soon after and forget that they just played someone else before (like actors do duh). I absolutely love Jessica Lange, I think that she is incredible and I was sad to hear that she won’t be involved in American Horror Story anymore. I also absolutely love Evan Peters which surprised me because I saw him in Sleepover (2004) and absolutely couldn’t stand him but he has come such a long way in the past eleven years and not only is he one of the most talented actors I’ve seen in a while…he’s also a bit of a heart throb. He reminds me a lot of a young Johnny Depp. Anyway this is something I’d highly recommend especially if you are a fan or have been a fan of horror movies or television series. I’ll be doing a full post about this in the near future as it is brilliant and deserves more written about it.
After this I gave Bates Motel a go, but after the two episodes I wasn’t impressed and although I may give it another go in the future I decided to move on to Orange Is The New Black which I’d heard from so many people how good it was and knew a small amount about it before watching it but this one grew on me as I didn’t love it to start off with but over time I think it’s just got better and better. The cast is absolutely superb, especially Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon (That 70’s Show), Taryn Manning (Crossroads), Natasha Lyonne (American Pie) and Madeline Brewer. To be honest with you, I could list them all as they are all incredible actors and actresses. This is an amazing show based on a memoir written by Piper Kerman on her own experiences in a women’s prison for drug trafficking and money laundering back in 2004. I would highly recommend this series, it’s a moving story with a great amount of comedy thrown in, and there are so many different characters all with interesting back stories. I can’t wait for this to return as we are currently up to Series 3 and eagerly waiting to find out what happens next.
So here we are… back to the present and waiting for the next episode of the amazing Pretty Little Liars. It’s absolutely fantastic, the beginning of this season jumps forward five years and the girls all meet up again in Rosewood and it gets messy again with a new A, more lies and more twists.


It’s Nearly Chriiiiiiistmas!!!

So lets not mess about, Christmas is only a week away and I am flipping excited!!!

I absolutely love Christmas. I love the twinkly lights, the cheesy songs, the Christmas specials on telly, the Christmas films, the presents, advent calenders, the tree… EVERY THING!!!

I think having a little baby has brought the magic of Christmas back as well so it’s even more exciting.

I love the family and friend aspect of Christmas the most, it’s a time to spend with your loved ones and spoil each other with gifts and give soppy cards. I love treating people to gifts that’s my favourite part.

But I also love…

Strawberry Cream :-D

Merry Geekmas: Attire

So, your nerd cave is looking pretty festive now, what with your dying pine tree being adorned with all manner of sparkly goodness and a strange incarnation of Santa with the body of a Horse, but what about you? You’re still there, wearing your drab non-festive clothes that you wear all year ’round. Let’s festivise (may or may not be an actual word) you!
