There are tons of great Star Wars quotes that can come in handy for all sorts of everyday uses, and some of them are famous and come up constantly (It's a trap!) but some of the more obscure ones may only be recognized by true fans, and even then, once taken out of context, they may be hard spot.
I've compiled a list of both famous and lesser-known Star Warsquotes, in no particular order, and only from the original trilogy.
