Famous quotes containing the words star wars, wars, saving and/or star:
“The obvious parallels between Star Wars and The Wizard of Oz have frequently been noted: in both there is the orphan hero who is raised on a farm by an aunt and uncle and yearns to escape to adventure. Obi-wan Kenobi resembles the Wizard; the loyal, plucky little robot R2D2 is Toto; C3PO is the Tin Man; and Chewbacca is the Cowardly Lion. Darth Vader replaces the Wicked Witch: this is a patriarchy rather than a matriarchy.”

Of wars, and what are wars but politics

“The flame from the angels sword in the garden of Eden has been catalysed into the atom bomb; Gods thunderbolt became blunted, so mans dunderbolt has become the steel star of destruction.”
