There are very few movie franchises as iconic as the Star Wars Saga, with pretty much all of them (even the prequels!) being a rich source of classic movie lines. So here is our list of the best quotes from the Star Wars movies. Note that we will continue to add to our list as and when a new Star Wars movie is released. Sit back and prepare to go into a galaxy far, far away into this amazing universe with these great quotes…
1. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999)
'Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.' - Yoda (Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace) Click To Tweet
We all wanted to love this movie after waiting for so long for it to be released, but sadly this film just lacked in every way a movie could. The plot is mostly exposition and the characters are all wooden, but on the positive side it had a great score and some impressive action sequences. Even though most of the dialogue was cringe-worthy we managed to find a few golden nuggets in there.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Always remember, your focus determines your reality.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Your thoughts dwell on your mother.
Anakin: I miss her.
Yoda: Afraid to lose her I think, hmm?
Anakin: What has that got to do with anything?
Yoda: Everything. Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.
2. Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002)
'Sometimes there are things no one can fix.' - Padme (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones) Click To Tweet
The second sequel in the prequel movies suffers pretty much from the same faults as the first movie. The script is still very weak, and the characters are one dimensional and underdeveloped, but with all of that it manages to slightly improve on the underwhelming first prequel movie.
Padme: To be angry is to be human.
Anakin: I’m a Jedi. I can be better than this.
Obi-Wan: Be mindful of your thoughts Anakin. They’ll betray you.
Anakin: Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi’s life. So you might say, that we are encouraged to love.
3. Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005)
'The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.' - Yoda (Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith) Click To Tweet
While this movie still never lived up to the original trilogy standards it was a massive improvement on the first two prequel movies. The characters are fleshed out more and the action sequences are more impressive, but the movie still suffers from seriously bad dialogue. And even though it closes some loose ends concerning the original trilogy, the plot still feels inconsistent. And who can forget Vader’s farcical “Nooooo!” in his most emotional moment, which totally ruined that great scene.
Anakin Skywalker: I won’t let these visions come true, Master Yoda.
Yoda: 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 jealousy. The shadow of greed that is.
Anakin Skywalker: What must I do, Master Yoda?
Yoda: Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.
Yoda: Twisted by the Dark Side, young Skywalker has become. The boy you trained, gone he is consumed by Darth Vader.
4. Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)
'In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.' - Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope) Click To Tweet
George Lucas’s introduction to this amazing space saga with such memorable characters which created a pop culture phenomenon that I don’t think has even been equaled in quite the same way.
Princess Leia: Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.
Han Solo: Damn fool, I knew you were going to say that.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Who’s the more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?
Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Luke Skywalker: I have a very bad feeling about this.
5. Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
'Do or do not. There is no try.' - Yoda (Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back) Click To Tweet
This second sequel in the original trilogy brought in the same ingredients as A New Hope but in a darker more sinister tone, with a more involving plot, and the ultimate classic twist that everyone loves so much!
C-3PO: Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.
Han Solo: Never tell me the odds.
Yoda: You must unlearn what you have learned.
Luke Skywalker: [after Yoda raises Luke’s X-Wing from the bog using the Force] I don’t, I don’t believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.
Princess Leia: Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.
Han Solo: Who’s scruffy-looking?
Princess Leia: I love you.
Han Solo: I know.
Luke: I won’t fail you. I’m not afraid.
Yoda: You will be. You will be.
Darth Vader: Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me.
Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!
Darth Vader: No. I am your father.
Luke: No. No. That’s not true. That’s impossible!
Darth Vader: Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
6. Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983)
'Many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.' - Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi) Click To Tweet
Although the final sequel in the original trilogy gets a little to get going, and is not as mature as its predecessor, it still ends in a rewarding and satisfying note.
Luke Skywalker: The Force runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And my sister has it. Yes, it’s you, Leia.
Princess Leia: I know. Somehow, I’ve always known.
Luke Skywalker: Your thoughts betray you, Father. I feel the good in you, the conflict.
Darth Vader: There is no conflict.
Luke Skywalker: You couldn’t bring yourself to kill me before and I don’t believe you’ll destroy me now.
Darth Vader: You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.
Luke Skywalker: Come with me. Leave everything behind.
Darth Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don’t know the power of the Dark Side. I must obey my master.

The seventh movie in this epic space saga is a true return to form and feels like the original trilogy. Yes, it’s not a perfect movie and it does rehash the main plot points from the original trilogy, but to us that’s didn’t take anything away from it.
Finn: We’ll figure it out, we’ll use the Force!
Han Solo: That’s not how the Force works!
Han Solo: Chewie, we’re home.
Han Solo: Women always figure out the truth. Always.
The first of the standalone anthology movies, which is going to be probably best remembered for bringing back Peter Cushing and some of the best Darth Vadar moments in the Star Wars Saga.
Chirrut Îmwe: The Force is with me. And I am with the Force. And I fear nothing. For all is as the Force wills it.
Cassian Andor: Rebellions are built on hope.
'Hope is like the sun. If you only believe in it when you can see it, you'll never make it through the night.' - Vice Admiral Holdo (Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi) Click To Tweet
Rian Johnson’s sequel of the ongoing saga, which set off a new wave of controversy since the prequels. Although the movie is probably the most visually stunning of the Star Wars movies, the story as whole does not follow suit. Love it or hate it, the movie does offer some great lines.
Yoda: The greatest teacher, failure is.
Kylo Ren: Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.
Vice Admiral Holdo: When I served under Leia, she would say, hope is like the sun. If you only believe in it when you can see it, you’ll never make it through the night.
The second in the standalone movies giving us the backstory to one of the most iconic and popular characters in the Star Wars universe, Han Solo. Sadly, this is a movie that truly should not have been made, but here we are. You can enjoy for what it is, an average fantasy action adventure.
Lando Calrissian: I hate you.
Han Solo: I know.
Tobias Beckett: [to Han] You want know how I’ve survived as long as I have? I trust no one. Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.

J. J. Abrams returns to direct the final episode of the nine-part Skywalker Saga. The story sees the Resistance face the First Order once more, and the end of the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith.
Emperor Palpatine: You are nothing. A scavenger girl is no match for the power in me. I am all the Sith!
Rey: And I am all the Jedi.
