The Star Wars universe continues to broaden and generate brand-new characters and broaden on old ones. Ewan McGregors Obi-Wan Kenobi is getting a much-deserved spin-off series that will cover his time on Tatooine in between Episode III and Episode IV.

Obi-Wan is a component in the Star Wars mythos; he is among the greatest Jedi ever to live and likewise takes place to be really quotable. “You were the Chosen One” was among his most unforgettable, however a few of the Jedi Masters best lines from the movie are rooted in his character and can even be relatable today.

“In my experience, theres no such thing as luck.” — A Brand-new Hope (1977)

While providing Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) a refresher course in utilizing the Force, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) says that Lukes deflections versus the training android were absolutely nothing however luck. Han, obviously, has no belief in the Force, however Obi-Wans (Sir Alec Guinness) interactions with both of them show a more extensive development of him as a Jedi.

He is requiring the hotshot pilot to reevaluate his ideas and impart even more the self-confidence in Luke that he can even more than he believes. It is a bit paradoxical, however, since Obi-Wan has definitely had his reasonable share of luck, specifically versus Darth Maul.


“Only a Sith deals in absolutes.” — Vengeance of the Sith (2005)

This is, in itself, an outright and a window into the thinking about the Jedi Order. Nevertheless, Anakins (Hayden Christensen) preliminary line that stimulated this was, “If youre not with me, then youre my enemy.” That is likewise an outright, that makes you believe, how various are the Jedi and Sith?

To be sure, it is a minute that broke Obi-Wans heart, as he was positive that at this moment, his apprentice might not be conserved by the hold the Dark Side had on him.

“Youll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” — A Brand-new Hope (1977)

Hilariously indicate, precise, and once again, paradoxical. Not 30 seconds after getting in Mos Eisley Cantina, Luke is confronted by 2 rogues declaring they dont like him. Had actually Obi-Wan not existed, Luke wouldve remained in rather the jam.

Then, in the really next scene, the heroes are presented to Han Solo, a fugitive hunter who would become their closest ally. Mos Eisley isnt all bad, however its still mainly filled with residue and villainy.

“Im not brave enough for politics.” — Vengeance of the Sith (2005)

Perhaps the most relatable line to come out of Star Wars. Obi-Wan happily steps away to enable Anakin to absorb the spotlight and be the “poster boy” for their triumph versus Count Dooku.

Nevertheless, this line is mainly a lie as Obi-Wan states to Anakin that his loyalty is “to the Republic, to Democracy.” For This Reason, it was most likely simply a method for him to prevent handling people outside the Jedi Council. Its safe to presume this is the most estimated Obi-Wan line at the Thanksgiving table.

“I have the high ground.” — Vengeance of the Sith (2005)

Tactically, Obi-Wan did, have the high ground. As a matter of truth, Obi-Wan remained in the specific opposite situation in Phantom Hazard (1999) throughout his battle with Darth Maul, where Maul had the high ground, yet Obi-Wan had the ability to win due to the Siths conceit; comparable to this battle with Anakin.

Contributed to the truth that Anakin had actually abandoned all his mentors out of his worries and was seduced by the Dark Side, Obi-Wan remained real to the Order and continued to have the ethical high ground.

“Who is more silly? The fool, or the fool who follows him? — A Brand-new Hope (1977)

Another amusing quote of knowledge from Old Ben Kenobi. Obi-Wan has actually certainly led as the fool however has actually likewise done the following, specifically when it concerns some rash choices Anakin has actually made next to him on the battleground.

This is an intriguing philosophical concern; it likewise seems like Obi-Wans variation of “If your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it?”
