"Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That's the only way to become what you are meant to be."
Kylo Ren

Luke Skywalker: What do you know about the Force?
Rey: It's a power that Jedi have that lets them control people and... make things float.
Luke: Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.

Luke: Breathe. Reach out with your feelings. What do you see?
Rey: The island. Life. Death and decay, that feeds new life. Warmth. Cold. Peace. Violence.
Luke: And between it all?
Rey: Balance and energy. A force.
Luke: And inside you?
Rey: Inside me, that same force.
Luke: And this is the lesson. That Force does not belong to the Jedi. To say that if the Jedi die, the light dies, is vanity. Can you feel that?

"We are the spark that will light the fire that'll burn the First Order down."
Poe Dameron

"This is not going to go the way you think."
Luke Skywalker

"I only know one truth. It's time for the Jedi... to end."
Luke Skywalker

"That's how we're gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, but saving what we love."
Rose Tico

“Hope is like the sun. If you only believe it when you see it you’ll never make it through the night.”
General Leia Organa Solo

"I saw darkness. I sensed it building in him. I'd seen it in moments during his training. But then I looked inside, and it was beyond what I ever imagined. Snoke had already turned his heart. He would bring destruction, pain, death, and the end of everything I love because of what he will become. And for the briefest moment of pure instinct, I thought I could stop it. It passed like a fleeting shadow. And I was left with shame and with consequence. And the last thing I saw were the eyes of a frightened boy whose master had failed him."
Luke Skywalker on how Ben Solo became Kylo Ren

"Heeded my words not, did you? "Pass on what you have learned." Strength, mastery, hmm...but weakness, folly, failure, also. Yes: failure, most of all. The greatest teacher, failure is. Luke, we are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters."

"The Rebellion is reborn today. The war is just beginning. And I will not be the last Jedi."
Luke Skywalker

Poe Dameron: Attention! This is Commander Poe Dameron of the Republic fleet. I have an urgent communique for General Hux.
General Hux: This is General Hux of the First Order. The Republic is no more. Your fleet are Rebel scum and war criminals. Tell your precious princess there will be no terms, there will be no surrender—
Poe: Hi, I'm holding for General Hux.
Hux: This is Hux. You and your friends are doomed. We will wipe your filth from the galaxy!
Poe: (pauses) Okay, I'll hold.
Hux: Hello?
Poe: Hello? Yup, I'm still here.
Hux: Can you— can he hear me?
Poe: Hux?
Captain Canady: (a First Order monitor nods) He can.
Poe: With an "H"? Skinny guy? Kinda pasty?
Hux: (becoming increasingly annoyed) I can hear you. Can you hear me?
Poe: Look, I can't hold forever. If you reach him, tell him Leia has an urgent message for him...
Canady: I believe he's tooling with you, sir.
Poe: ...about his mother.
Hux: (enraged) Open fire!

Snoke: (referring to General Hux) You wonder why I keep a rabid cur in such a place of power? A cur's weakness, properly manipulated, can be a sharp tool. How's your wound?
Kylo Ren: It's nothing.
Snoke: Hmm. The mighty Kylo Ren. When I found you, I saw what old masters live to see: raw, untamed power...and beyond that, something truly special. The potential of your bloodline. A new Vader. Now, I fear I was mistaken.
Kylo Ren: I've given everything I have to the Dark Side...
Snoke: Take that ridiculous thing off. (Ren takes off his helmet, revealing his bandaged facial scar) Yes... there it is. You have too much of your father's heart in you, young Solo.
Kylo Ren: I killed Han Solo. When the moment came, I didn't hesitate!
Snoke: And look at you. The deed split your spirit to the bone. You were unbalanced, bested by a girl who had never held a lightsaber! You failed!! (an enraged Ren tries to attack Snoke, but he blasts him back with Force lightning; the Praetorian guards draw their weapons in response) Skywalker lives! The seed of the Jedi Order lives! As long as he does...hope lives in the galaxy. I thought you would be the one to snuff it out. Alas, you are no Vader. You are just a child in a mask.

Luke: Lesson two. Now that they are extinct, the Jedi are romanticized, deified. But if you strip away the myth and look at their deeds, the legacy of the Jedi is failure. Hypocrisy, hubris.
Rey: That's not true.
Luke: At the height of their powers, they allowed Darth Sidious to rise, create the Empire, and wipe them out. It was a Jedi Master who was responsible for the training and creation of Darth Vader.
Rey: And a Jedi who saved him. Yes. Your father was the most hated man in the galaxy. He caused so much death and destruction for many years. But you saw there was conflict inside him. You believed that he wasn't gone. That he could be turned.
Luke: And I became a legend. For many years, there was balance and then I saw Ben. My nephew with that mighty Skywalker blood. In hubris, I thought I could train him; I could pass on my strengths. Han was Han about it, but...Leia trusted me with her son. I took him, and a dozen students, and began a training temple. By the time I realized I was no match for the darkness rising in him, it was too late.
