Star Wars Meme, Day Seven

7 - Most Powerful Quote

Oh, but this is a tough one. I shall address it as a meal, then, shall I?

"Anger, fear, aggression depression. The dark side are they."
'You must do what you feel is right, of course."
"The Force will be with you...always."
"I don't believe it." "That... is why you fail."
"You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly upon our own point of view."
"Luminous beings are we. Not this crude matter."

All of these quote inspire me from time to time, and I use them all very often to cheer me up. Originally, I listed many other quotes there, until I remembered the question asked for "powerful," not funny or personally meaningful (sorry "MINE! Or I will help you not!"). I'm sure I'm missing some, but alas, it is bed time for wabbit, and I have more to type before I sleep. ;)

"No. I am your father."

You want powerful? Come on. This line is beyond a doubt the single most emotionally charged moment of the trilogy and there's a reason it still blows kids away today. It's simply an amazing twist that we never saw coming, and it deserves its place here. Yes, this is the main course of the powerful lines dinner, and deservedly so. But you know, I really like dessert, too.

"I am a Jedi. Like my father before me."

Yes, I like dessert so much that for me personally, I think it's the winner. The SINGLE most powerful line of the trilogy? This one. It boils the entire story down to to nine words. The Star Wars trilogy contains many wonderful characters and well-supported secondary plot lines, but the whole point is the journey of Luke Skywalker and the subsequent redemption of Anakin Skywalker. It's a tale of redemption, and nothing says that like these nine words, which I use for self-comfort in an entirely different way than the ones listed above. I can't NOT smile when I think about them, and they are my winner by a nose in this particular race.
