Here are some memorable quotes by "Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi" (portrayed by Alec Guinness) in "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope" (1977), a film by George Lucas.
If you know of any good ones, please do not hesitate to post them!
[responding to the legend that Obi-Wan-Kenobi was dead] Oh, he's not dead...not yet.
For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the Dark Times. Before the Empire.
He was the best starpilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. I understand you've become quite a good pilot yourself. And he was a good friend. Which reminds me, I have something here for you. You father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn't allow it. He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damned-fool idealistic crusade like your father did.
Your father's lightsaber.[Hands it to Luke] This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. [Luke turns it on and begins swinging it around while Ben continues.] An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire.
A former Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned evil, helped the empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights.

They didn't. But we are meant to think they did. These tracks are side by side. Sandpeople always ride single file to hide their numbers.

Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
These aren't the droids you're looking for.
I feel a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.
In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.
You've taken your first step into a larger world.
That's no moon... it's a space station.
Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?
Your destiny lies along a different path from mine.
Only a master of evil, Darth.
You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
Use the Force, Luke. Let go, Luke. Luke, trust me.
Remember, the Force will be with you. Always.
