In case you are searching for the best Star Wars quotes (and by this, we mean quotes from the three Star Wars movies), then you are in the right place.

With a plot that focuses on the victory of good over evil and the tragic fall and subsequent salvation of a hero, the movie franchise has so become a part of our culture that it will be impossible to disentangle the two.
There is hardly anyone who has never seen a Star Wars film or encountered something from it via quotations or references but in case you are one of such few people who have not, relax as we introduce you to the world of these enthralling films through some of the most memorable Star Wars quotes.
