A character of the most famous Sci-Fi movie uses this sentence at a turning point:

"Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering. - Master Yoda."

He tells this to Anakin when he falls in love with queen Amidala / Padme. It is a warning, but Anakin doesn't listen.

In japanese this sentence becomes:


Osore ha Dark Side (daaku saido) ni tsujiru. Osore ha okuri ni; okuri ha nikushimi ni, nikushimi ha kutsuu he.
