Classic Movie Quote: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

In honor of Celebration V:

“Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless.”


Every Monday we are going to feature a classic quote from our favorite films. Have a suggestion for a future feature? EmailLando Da Pimp.
