Looking for inspiration to start pursuing your small business dreams? Let the "Force" be your guide...

Can you name the characters who said these out of this world quotes? Bonus question, which Star Wars film are each of them from?

"No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try."
"Easy is the path to wisdom for those only not blinded by themselves."
"Hope is like the sun. If you only believe in it when you see it, you'll never make it through the night."
"It's better to die in pursuit of your dreams than to live a life without hope."
"Always remember, your focus determines your reality"
"Never tell me the odds."
"The longing you seek is not behind you. It is in front of you."
"Questions are more true than answers; this is the beginning of wisdom."
"The greatest teacher is failure."
And last but certainly not least "May the Force be with you."

RIP Peter Mayhew.
