Top 10 Star Wars Quotes (and what makes them great)

Best Star Wars Quotes

Aside from the obvious famous Star Wars quotes such as “Use the Force, Luke” and “I am your father,” the Star Wars movies really do hide some literary gems within their screenplays, which, in some cases, are beautifully delivered.

I have thus compiled a list of ten Star Wars quotes based on a number of qualities; delivery, style, humour, meaning, poetic nature, importance and charisma. I did not want to simply include a regurgitated top ten with “I am your father” at number one – we all know and love those kinds of quotes. This list is a more speculative look at the whole series, including quotes that define characters, plots, and do everything from send chills down the spine to positively inspire generations of fellow nerds.

Hopefully this list will conjure thought, review, memory and debate amongst us all. Enjoy!

Top 10 Star Wars Quotes

Film: Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi
Who: Yoda to Luke Skywalker
What makes it great?
In cinema, the Degoba system is possibly one of the most ambitious and atmospheric sets ever made, especially at the time of production in the late 70s/ early 80s. The swamp-ish scenery and aged frailty of Yoda’s appearance emphasises a beautiful theme in the Star Wars films – the past. The past is a theme that the original saga concentrates on a lot in terms of narrative and plot, and the visits to Yoda in Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi personify (or more accurately, Yodafy) this theme in the character of Yoda and the decaying nature of his home. Luke is trained in the Force by a slowly dying master, whose wisdom knows no boundaries. This whole context is summed up in this beautiful, quirky and humorous quote from Yoda that reveals his age, his connection to Luke’s past and his modest and humble personality as a shaman-esqsue old prophet.

    A couple of the the Emperor’s lines in Jedi are good when he’s zapping Luke:

    ‘Young fool, only now, at the end, do you understand…’

    ‘You’ve paid the price for your lack of vision!’

    “The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.” That’s my favorite quote. It says a lot about Vader and what people throughout the movie think of the force.

    Anakin:Are you an angel?
    Padme: What?
    Anakin: An angel. I’ve heard the deep space pilots talk about them. They’re the most beautiful creatures in the universe. They live on the moons of Iego, I think.

    This dialogue shows the deep admiration that Anakin felt about Padme, since the moment he met her.

    It’s really upsetting that the quote “Only a Sith deals in absolutes.” Wasn’t on this list. (Obi-Wan > Anakin, SWIII)

    The force is strong with you young Skywalker. But you are not a Jedi yet.

    These are not the droids you are looking for.

    At last, we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last, we will have revenge.
