Greetings one and all. Curious what each member of this forum feels is their favorite quotes from SWs.

No limit on choices!

Personally for me there are a couple that stand out.

"There is no shame in falling, for all stumble. There is only shame if you refuse to stand back up again." Jedi Master Pernicar's force ghost to General Hoth on Ruusan

"I stand in your way. What you see...you will not achieve." Jedi Master Luke Skywalker to Lord Nyax on Coruscant

"Remember, you can't look dignified while having fun." Wes Janson to Myn Donos on Hawkbat base
"I do not intend to be the Emperor's servant forever..."-High Inquisitor Jerec

"The New Order has never fallen. Only the Emperor."-Grand Moff Ardus Kaine

"Hello There"

"Dew it"

"No one is immune from failure. All have tasted the bitterness of defeat and disappointment. A Warrior must not dwell on that failure but must learn from it and continue on."
“In this world, whenever there is light, there are also shadows. As long as the concept of winners exist, there must also be losers. The selfish desire of wanting to maintain peace causes wars and hatred is born to protect love.“

"There are thousands of warriors out here. You are only one man!"

"I am only one Jedi."

"You're insane!"

"No. I am Ganner. This threshold is mine. I claim it for my own. Bring on your thousands, one at a time or all in a rush. I don't give a damn. NONE SHALL PASS."

-Ganner Rhysode and Nom Anor, Battle of the World Well
"History is on the move, Captain. Those who cannot keep up will be left behind, to watch from a distance. And those who stand in our way will not watch at all."
Grand Admiral Thrawn

"But...it was so artistically done."
Grand Admiral Thrawn

"It is such a quiet thing, to fall. But far more terrible is to admit it." ―Kreia

"The New Order has never fallen. Only the Emperor. … The Emperor may be dead, but the Empire lives on!" ―Ardus Kaine

"This is Moff Ranulf Yage, formerly of the Sith Imperial Navy. My daughter is right. The Sith have no honor. I am joining her defection to His Imperial Majesty, Roan Fel of Bastion—if he will have me. Other captains of the Sith Empire who wish to join me should signify so immediately or be blown out of the sky as hostile vessels. Yage out." ― Moff Yage

"I am Ganner Krieg — Knight of the Empire! You have betrayed my Emperor, sullied the Empire, killed my friends, and struck down she I have sworn on my life to protect! I will leave your bones for the beasts to crack." ― Ganner Krieg

"All thoughts are worth listening to, whether later judged to be of value or not." ~ Thrawn (Outbound Flight)

"Trust me, have i ever gotten you killed before?" ~ Jax Pavan (Coruscant Nights: Jedi Twilight)

"Does the warmaster truly wish a disquisition upon the New Republic's perverse system of government? It has to do with a bizarre concept called democracy, in which ruling power is given to whoever is most skillful at directing the herd instincts of the largest masses of their most ignorant citizens..." ~ Nom Anor (New Jedi Order: Traitor)

"We'll put that in your biography. General Antilles was so good he couldn't fail when he tried to." ~ Tycho Celchu (New Jedi Order: Rebel Dream)
Quote from: RonMaverick291 (Gametrailers)

"Who's more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?" Obi-Wan to Han Solo on the Death Star.

"I find your lack of faith disturbing" Darth Vader to Conan Antonio Motti on the Death Star.

"Sergeant, why are you so certain no one is coming?"
"We're just clones, sir. We're meant to be expendable."
"Not to me." Plo Koon and Clone Sergeant Sinker in the wreckage of the Triumphant.

Says the Jedi Master who isn't expendable

Exar Kun: (spends a couple pages trying to seduce Corran Horn to the dark side, using the usual suspects)
Corran: No.
Exar Kun: No?
Corran: No. You don't get it, do you? You've already lost and you're continuing down that losing path. Haven't the last four thousand years taught you anything?
Exar Kun: I know more than you could ever hope to learn in four thousand years or forty thousand years.
Corran: That may be. But I know the one thing you don't. You're never going to win. You destroy those who oppose you, and what does that leave you?
Exar Kun: The faithful.
Corran: From among whom arises a rival. You have a schism.
Exar Kun: And I destroy the heretics.
Corran: Yes, you do. And again and again that cycle repeats itself and you let it go on because you've forgotten the most fundamental truth of reality: Life creates the Force. When Kyp destroyed Carida, he diminished your power. When you destroyed Gantoris, you diminished your power. You're a predator over-grazing your prey, but you can't stop because the dark side fills you with this aching hunger that will never be satisfied.

Possibly one of my all time favorites and a fundamental reason the Dark Side never wins in the end even if it does in short term.

Kreia had countless of them (thanks to Chris Avellone and other great people of Obsidian) and for the novels, Allston and Stackpole are the kings. But to change, a political speech of Princess Leia :

"This is not the end. Two years ago, the Yuuzhan Vong entered our galaxy. They came not as friends and equals, though we would gladly have welcomed them as such, but as thieves and conquerors. They saw a galaxy at peace and mistook the strength of our convictions for frailty of arms, the wisdom of compromise for the timidity of cowards. They attacked without provocation or mercy, slaying billions of our citizens, enslaving entire worlds, and sacrificing millions of beings to appease the bloodlust of their imaginary gods. They believed we would be easily defeated, because they believed we would yield without a fight. They were wrong. We have fought at Dubrillion, Ithor, the Black Bantha, Borleias, and Corellia—we have fought them every leg of the way from the Outer Rim into the Core. We have lost untold numbers of loved ones, my own son Anakin and my husband’s dear friend Chewbacca among them, and now we are battling in the skies over Coruscant itself. We are still fighting. Soon, the enemy will be on our rooftops, in our homes, roaming the dark underlayers of our city. To those able to evacuate and to those trapped behind, I say the same thing I would tell my twins—were I able to reach them behind enemy lines: Keep fighting. This is not the end. Twice already, Jedi-led forces have decimated Yuuzhan Vong fleets, and we enter each battle with new weapons and better tactics. We have prevailed against ruthless enemies before, against Palpatine, against Thrawn, against the Ssi-ruuk. This is a war we know how to win. Keep fighting until you can fight no longer, then exhaust the enemy chasing you, and turn and fight some more. Keep fighting. I promise you, we will prevail."

where do you think it was inspired from? many concepts in SW are rooted in real life, specifically WW2
do you know what really makes me mad? that the NR didn't make as many different SSDs as the empire. they would have won much faster had they done so. it's just not fair. but, if their were more NR SSDs, they would be absolute SUPER-CARRIERS.

but, i'm a member of the PA at heart, and my wish here is to join the ranks of grand admirals... sorry, the elite imperial alignment

In fact I was tempted to put a Winston Churchill quote to go with ;D

I think the best tribute to Winston Churchill in SW books is the "ACKBAR IS BACK" from Destiny's Way.
