Animation Dark Tide I: Onslaught Quotes

“You’re telling us they used rocks to kill a star destroyer?”
-Borsk Fey’lya about the Yuuzhan Vong

“There are some among Jedi that view strength as how far you can move something, or how easily you can break something. The real strength of a Jedi comes from within, from his heart and mind. Some Jedi move rocks just to prove they can move them, but the strongest Jedi don’t see any reason to move rocks when that isn’t going to solve the immediate problem.”
-Corran Horn

“Ever broken a limb?”
“My leg.”
“You remember it hurt, right?”
“Yes.”
“But you don’t remember how much it hurt. The mind is like that. You forget the really sharp pains so you’ll continue going on. Women forget the pain of childbirth or we’d all be only children.”
-Corran Horn and Ganner Rhysode.

“As they say on Tatooine, when being hunted by a krayt dragon, you don’t have to be faster than it is, you just have to be faster than the slowest guy in the group you’re with.”
-Corran Horn

“He described you as ‘two old guys.’”
“No respect among the young anymore, is there Tycho?”
“None, Wedge, none at all. Probably the fault of the command staff.”

Animation Dark Tide II: Ruin Quotes

“This is not a council of war. The Jedi do not go to war. We are protectors and defenders, not aggressors.”

That you can’t say that, Father, tells me just how bad it really is.’
-Jacen Solo

“A preemptive strike at a target, for example, is merely proactive defense.”
-Ganner Rhysode

“Now you’re going to tell me that you knew all this stuff because girls mature faster than boys.”
Women, Jacen, women mature faster than boys.”
-Jacen and Jaina Solo

“You can feel very bad, devastated, over the death of one person, but can you multiply that a billion times when a planet is destroyed?”

“You saw what you wanted to see.”

-Wedge Antilles and Jagged Fel

“If there ever comes a time when folks look forward to the return of the man who killed Ithor, well, we know that means the invasion is completely out of hand and things are truly beyond saving.”

-Anakin Solo

“If someone is aiming a blaster at your ally, do you raise your ligthsaber to prevent it, or do you do nothing because a Jedi isn’t supposed to take aggressive action? I mean, where’s the line, Jacen? We’re in a war for survival , and defense sometimes means having to eliminate the opposition.”
-Anakin Solo

“If actions were always judged by their consequence, we’d spend half our lives making amends.”
-Luke Skywalker

“The future isn’t fixed. It’s made up of possibilities. I saw without seeing.”

Animation Balance Point Quotes

“I only know that you can’t fight darkness with darkness. So maybe a Jedi shouldn’t fight violence with violence, either. Sometimes, I even think that the more you fight evil, the more you empower it.”
-Jacen Solo

“Their freedom to make choices means they are free to make wrong ones.”
-Luke Skywalker

“Mara, anything could kill any one of us, today, tomorrow. The Yuuzhan Vong could pull down one of Coruscant’s moons, or we could fall out of a window. Life is risk.”

“How many of you does it take to kill someone you call coward?”
-Jacen Solo

‘Plainly, the strength of a hundred-odd Jedi couldn’t keep the galaxy from falling to this menace. One misstep--at one critical moment, by one pivotal person--could doom everyone they’d sworn to protect. No military force could stop this invasion, because it was a spiritual battle. And if one pivotal person fell to the dark side--or even used the ravishing, terrifying power of light in a wrong way--then this time, everything they knew might slide into stifling darkness.’
-Jacen Solo

“Give us your Jeedai. All of them, without exception. Any species, any age, any stage of training. Hold them back, hide them, and you see how your worlds will be treated. But I will reward--with special gifts!--the person who brings me the Jeedai with whom I especially wish to speak. Give me Jacen Solo, alive. So that I may give him to the gods.”
-Tsavong Lah
