Y is for YODA

Welcome to Yes, This Will Be On the Test.
Waving to visitors, new followers, and fellow A to Z participants. I’m sending virtual hugs to you all for taking a moment to stop by.

I’ll be sharing my “take-aways.” All those snigglets, golden nuggets, and lessons learned from other creative sources.

Scroll down this link to find other wonderful A to Z participants.


You didn't really think I'd get through the whole A to Z without a Star Wars post, did you?

That Yoda it one of a kind, isn't he? Green, wrinkly, wise and aces with a lightsaber. 

He even brings Christmas cheer. 



The best thing about Yoda are his quotes, even though as a teacher and writer, his syntax makes my teeth hurt. 

Here are a few of my faves.

"Do or do not. There is no try."

"Always pass on what you have learned."

"Remember what you have learned, save you it can."

Luke: I can't believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.

TAKE AWAY - When you create a mentor, it's okay if he looks like your cat.

Any other favorite Yoda quotes or moment out there?

  3. Love Yoda! I've had the "Do or do not, there is not try" up in my classroom for years :)

  4. Yoda! My ex-husband was looking for years for the "Star Wars Christmas Special" on VHS. Apparently at that time (the 90s) it was worth big money if you could find it.

    1. I have the CD - I'd die a thousand deaths of happiness to have the actual show. I remember watching it.

  9. 'There is no try' has always bugged me LOL Because there is, actually. That being said, I do like Yoda. It's awesome how he's this tiny mis-shapen looking dude, but he's pretty freaking powerful despite (or because of?) all that.

  10. I love Yoda. I loved in the prequels how they showed him fighting with his lightsaber. That was amazing. And the fact that Count Dooku was his padawan. That really shows how old Yoda is, though I love his quote in Return of the Jedi: "When 900 years old you get, look as good you will not."
