What You Can Learn from Yoda

What You Can Learn from Yoda. 30 Yoda quotes you can apply to your life.

I love Yoda.   I think he is beyond adorable and wise!  My son informed me that May 4th is International Star Wars Day.  I asked him, “Is that really a day?”  He said “Yes, may the 4th be with you.”  Ha!  A funny little pun, on Yoda’s “May the force be with you.”
