Hello, Freedom students.  Let’s end this work week right with a fantastic English quote from Yoda.  Yes, that Yoda!


Yoda is a character from the Star Wars franchise.  He is a small, green, troll-like character, who claims to be over 900 years old.  Yoda was considered the oldest and wisest of all the Jedi, and was the leader of the Jedi before the war.  The character first appeared in the 1980 movie The Empire Strikes Back.  Originally, Yoda was a puppet, and was voiced by the very famous Frank Oz.


One of the main characters, Luke, is sent to a distant swamp planet named Dagobah, where Yoda lived in hiding.  Once there, Yoda taught Luke what it is to be a Jedi and has one of the most famous and memorable lines in the entire Star Wars series.




Since the movie premiered in 1980, this quote has been used by many people as a way to say “don’t give up”!  What do you think?  Do you agree with this quote?  I do!  My father used to quote it to me all the time when I felt ready to give up.  Let us know your Yoda stories in the comments below!
