May peace, balance, compassion, and gratitude endure.  

“Yoda : Yes, run! Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.

Luke : Vader… Is the dark side stronger?

Yoda : No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.

Luke : But how am I to know the good side from the bad?

Yoda : You will know… when you are calm, at peace, passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, NEVER for attack.”
