Luke: I don't, I don't believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.

Luke: All right, I'll give it a try.
Yoda: No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Yoda: I am wondering, why are you here?
Luke: I'm looking for someone.
Yoda: Looking? Found someone, you have, I would say, hmmm?
Luke: Right...
Yoda: Help you I can. Yes, mmmm.
Luke: I don't think so. I'm looking for a great warrior.
Yoda: Ohhh. Great warrior. Wars not make one great.

Luke: I can't. It's too big.
Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

Luke: I want my lamp back. I'm gonna need it to get out of this slimy mudhole.
Yoda: Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is.

Luke: I saw a city in the clouds. They were in pain.
Yoda: It is the future you see.
Luke: Will they die?
Yoda: Difficult to see. Always in motion is future.
Luke: I've gotta go to them.
Yoda: Decide you must what to serve them best. If you leave now, help them you could, but you would destroy all for which they have fought and suffered.

Obi-Wan: If you choose to face Vader, you will do it alone. I cannot interfere.
Luke: I understand. R2. Fire up the converters.
Obi-Wan: Luke. Don't give in to hate. That leads to the Dark Side.
Yoda: Strong is Vader. Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.
Luke: I will. And I'll return, I promise.

Yoda: Stopped they must be; on this all depends. Only a fully-trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor.
Obi-Wan: Patience.
Luke: And sacrifice Han and Leia?
Yoda: If you honor what they fight for? Yes.

Obi-Wan: Obi-Wan Kenobi? Obi-Wan... Now, that's a name I haven't heard in a long time... A long time.
Luke: I think my uncle knows him. He said he was dead.
Obi-Wan: Oh, he's not dead... Not yet.
Luke: You know him?
Obi-Wan: Of course I know him: He's me.

Luke: It's a good thing you have these compartments.
Han Solo: Yeah, I use them for smuggling. I'd never thought I'd be smuggling myself in them.

C-3PO: Master Luke, sir. Pardon me for asking, but what should R2 and I do if we're discovered here?
Luke: Lock the door.
Han Solo: And hope they don't have blasters.
C-3PO: That isn't very reassuring.

I'm not such a bad pilot myself.
