April A-Z Challenge, April 29, Letter Y: Yoda

Yoda is an inspiring character in the Star Wars universe. Extremely wise. Small and unimposing by size, but actually extremely powerful. Modest about himself to the very end. And very funny with a sometimes biting but very coy sense of humour.

I always found enjoyment in the scenes with Yoda, and also learned a lot too from his various quotes. It’s nice when you can watch a science fiction / fantasy film and learn something while at the same time sitting back and having a good time.

My favourite Yoda quote is when he tells Luke:

Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

In other words, don’t just say you will try to do something, but you aren’t sure you will be successful. Believe in yourself and your abilities. “Just do it” as Nike would say. But Yoda said it better. 🙂
