Scene: Conversation following a graduation ceremony between a new grad and Obi Wan Kenobi.
Reference:  Quotes are from the Obi Wan Kenobi character in Star Wars movies.

 

Grad:  Excuse me Mr. Kenobi.  Mr. Kenobi.  Mr. Kenobi can I ask you a question?

Obi Wan:  “Use the force.”

Grad:  Okay, will I be lucky enough to have a successful career and life?

Obi Wan:  “In my experience, there’s no such thing as luck.”

Grad:  You’re saying I should choose the right career and hone a marketable skill?

Obi Wan:  “Skill is the child of patience.”

Grad:  So, if I work really hard, I will get rich?

Obi Wan:  “You’ll find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view”

Grad:  Well what if my point of view is to have lots of money no matter what?

Obi Wan:  “Don’t give in to hate. That Leeds to the dark side.”

Grad:  You’re saying that integrity and intention are more important than money?

Obi Wan:  “Everything casts two shadows”

Grad:  Huh? Do you mean that there is good and bad, happiness and struggle to anything? And, it is how I define ‘rich’ that makes the difference in which shadow prevails?

Obi Wan:   “May the force be with you.”
