Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
―Yoda —

Clear, your mind must be if you are to discover the real villains behind the plot.
―Yoda to Obi-Wan
Around the survivors, a perimeter create!
Much to learn, you still have.
―Yoda to Dooku
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is.
Careful you must be when sensing the future, Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.
―Yoda to Anakin Skywalker
Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.
―Yoda to Anakin Skywalker
If a special session of Congress there is, easier for us to enter the Jedi Temple it will be.

If into the security recordings you go, only pain will you find.
―Yoda to Obi-Wan Kenobi
Twisted by the dark side, young Skywalker has become.
―Yoda to Obi-Wan Kenobi

At an end your rule is… and not short enough it was.
―Yoda to Palpatine
Into exile I must go. Failed, I have.
―Yoda to Bail Organa
If so powerful you are, why leave?

Faith in your new apprentice, misplaced may be. As is your faith in the dark side of the Force.
No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.
―Yoda to Luke —

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!
―Yoda —
Yes. A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware 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.
―Yoda to Luke
And well you should not! For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. The Force surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock…everywhere! Even between the land and the ship.
―Yoda to Luke
Through the Force, things you will see. Other places. The future…the past…old friends long gone.
―Yoda to Luke
Strong am I with the Force, but not that strong. Twilight is upon me, and soon night must fall. That is the way of things… the way of the Force.
―Yoda to Luke Skywalker
Remember, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.
―Yoda to Luke Skywalker

When all choices seem wrong, choose restraint.
―recalled by Mace Windu

On many long journeys have I gone. And waited, too, for others to return from journeys of their own. Some return; some are broken; some come back so different only their names remain.
To be Jedi is to face the truth, and choose. Give off light, or darkness, Padawan. Be a candle, or the night, Padawan: but choose!
―Yoda to Whie Malreaux
When you look at the dark side, careful you must be … for the dark side looks back.
