Star Wars

Qui-Gon Jinn

Your focus determines your reality

Starkiller

For the first time, he understood that the Force didn’t come in two shades only: dark and light, distinct and combative, never meeting in the middle to form gray. Those were ideals, and ideals existed solely for philosophers and theoreticians to argue over. In the real world, dark and light co-existed in varying proportions; nothing was ever static…we’re always moving, he thought, toward the dark or toward the light. It’s impossible to stand still…Some hovered eternally in gray, never entirely choosing a side. There were, in fact, no actual sides, just the direction in which one happened to be moving. It was all relative.

Bail Organa

We should be forgiving of those who fail.

Juno Eclipse

A life without hope was worse than no life at all.

Trust your feelings
Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them.
There are alternatives to fighting.

We can admit that we’re killers, but we’re not going to kill today. That’s all it takes.
Man stagnates if he has no ambition, no desire to be more than he is.
All men are brothers.
I don’t believe in the no-win scenario.
What I have done, I had to do.
May fortune favour the foolish.
I don’t want my pain taken away! I need my pain.
Some people are afraid of what might happen.

Spock

I neither enjoy the idea of command nor am I frightened of it. It simply exists.
I’m not interested in the opinion of the majority.
If there are self-made purgatories, then we all have to live in them. Mine can be no worse than someone else’s.
Pain is a thing of the mind. The mind can be controlled.

Leonard McCoy

We all need our darker side. It’s half of who we are.
Life and death are seldom logical.
War is never imperative.
