Over the past thirteen years since her debut in Star Wars, Ahsoka Tano has become one of the franchise’s richest and most beloved characters, an incredible aspect of both The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels. As well as having powerful and iconic scenes in both those shows, the Togrutan has given fans a vast catalog of great quotes.

From empowering statements to moments of wisdom to emotional declarations to goosebump-inducing moments of dialogue, Ahsoka Tano has given fans of hers many quotes that will stick with them forever.
“It’s Every Citizens Duty To Challenge Their Leaders, To Keep Them Honest, And Hold Them Accountable If They’re Not.”
This quote comes from season 3, episode 6 of The Clone Wars – “The Academy.”
The wisdom of Ahsoka Tano cannot be understated. Even early in her life as a Jedi, she showcased a great intelligence geared towards doing good for the people of the Galaxy, as can be seen clearly when she teaches the cadets on Mandalore.
Ahsoka’s point about a citizen’s duty to hold leadership accountable is relevant in Star Wars and real life. She inspired the cadets and, with her lessons, ended up temporarily putting an end to a huge chunk of corruption on Mandalore. This quote is so resonant and brilliant from the young Jedi and is often forgotten about.
“In My Experience, When You Think You Understand The Force, You Realize Just How Little You Know.”
This quote comes from season 2, episode 20 of Star Wars: Rebels – “The Mystery Of Chopper Base.”
When debating about the parameters for a true Jedi, the names most often thrown in with that idea are the likes of Kanan Jarrus, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Ahsoka Tano, with the latter’s mission in life to help people, and all of their respect for the Force is incredible.
Ahsoka says this quote to Ezra, who rather amusingly replies that he never thought he understood the Force to begin with. This quote rings true for fans and characters alike. Every time it seems as though there is more understanding about the mystical energy, everybody realizes that the surface has hardly been scratched.
“When I Was Out There, All Alone, All I Had Was Your Training And The Lessons You Taught Me. And Because Of You I Did Survive. And Not Only That, I Was Able To Lead Others To Survive As Well.”
This quote comes from season 3, episode 22 of The Clone Wars – “Wookiee Hunt.”
One of the first and most significant tests of Ahsoka’s abilities came when she got captured by a group of Trandoshans with escape looking impossible. Upon her eventual return to safety, she and Anakin share an emotional reunion.
It is a wonderful scene between the two. Anakin’s worry about Ahsoka and guilt over her capture, Ahsoka’s gratitude to everything Anakin had taught her to that point, was heartwarming. The two genuinely are one of the greatest duos in The Clone Wars and Star Wars overall.
“You Should Have Seen Him In Person. Anakin Skywalker, He Was My Master.”
– This quote comes from season 2, episode 18 of Star Wars: Rebels – “Shroud Of Darkness.”
Ahsoka never lost her love, admiration, and gratitude to Anakin, as shown beautifully in the scene in Rebels where she watches a holorecording of his teachings and tells Ezra about him.

Ahsoka goes on to say about her former master “He was powerful, rarely lost a battle. What would have surprised people was how kind he was. He cared deeply about his friends and looked out for them until the end.” It is such a touching moment for fans of their relationship, knowing how much she admires him. This scene makes the revelation later in the same episode about Anakin’s true fate all the more painful.
“You’re A Good Soldier Rex. So Is Every One Of Those Men Down There. They May Be Willing To Die, But I Won’t Be The One Who Kills Them.”
This quote comes from season 7, episode 12 of The Clone Wars – “Victory And Death.”
Anakin and Ahsoka are always the relationship fans will think of first and foremost, but that should never take away from the friendship of Rex and Ahsoka, which may well be the best one in all of Star Wars TV.
Ahsoka says this quote to Rex in the Siege of Mandalore arc, an arc with so many phenomenal quotes for the two. As Rex cries about what is going on, Ahsoka tells him they will not kill Jesse and the other men of the 332nd company. The strength of Ahsoka here is admirable, refusing to take the lives of good, innocent soldiers knowing their search to kill her and Rex is not their choice. It is a moment that inspires such respect for Ahsoka.
“Then I Definitely Outrank You.”
This quote comes from season 2, episode 21 of Star Wars: Rebels – “Twilight Of The Apprentice: Part 1.”
In “Twilight of the Apprentice,” Ahsoka and Rex have their last known conversation as Ahsoka sets off for Malachor. It mirrors their very first conversation as Rex repeats his iconic quote, “In my book, experience outranks everything.”
This line is Ahsoka’s reply to that, and the entire scene is a small, beautiful moment that turns out to be a temporary goodbye between them. After all, they had been through to that point, they deserved a goodbye, and combined with Rex’s reaction to Ahsoka’s presumed demise at the end of the episode, this moment is a powerful one.
“My Older Brother Taught Me.”
This quote comes from season 7, episode 5 of The Clone Wars – “Gone With A Trace.”
For all the criticisms of the Martez sisters arc in season 7, it was crucial for Ahsoka’s journey and gave audiences some wonderful Ahsoka moments, including this.

Inquiring where Ahsoka learned to fight, Ahsoka says this line to Trace. So instinctively calling Anakin her brother is both sweet and heartbreaking to watch. She so obviously missed him at this point but knew she had to do what she was doing. It hits fans right in the feels.
“You Can’t Save Your Master, And I Can’t Save Mine.”
This quote comes from season 4, episode 13 of Star Wars: Rebels – “A World Between Worlds.”
“A World Between Worlds” answered the long-standing question of whether or not Ahsoka lived, and due to some wild cosmic circumstances, she thankfully did. In the episode, both she and Ezra had to come to the realization they had lost their masters.
Ezra desperately clings to the idea that he could save Kanan, but Ahsoka talks him down, knowing it would not work, that everyone would die, and that Kanan’s moving sacrifice should be honored. Ezra had to let go, as did Ahsoka, something both characters did after leaving the World Between Worlds.
“Maybe, But I Have To Sort This Out On My Own, Without The Council, And Without You.”
This quote comes from season 5, episode 20 of The Clone Wars – “The Wrong Jedi.”
One of the most heartbreaking Star Wars moments ever comes in season 5 of The Clone Wars when Ahsoka Tano walks away from the Jedi Order, rightfully feeling that they had let her down and that she had to figure stuff out, alone.
Everything about this quote and the exchange with Anakin hurts fans. Anakin’s admission about knowing what it is like to want to leave, Ahsoka basically saying she knows he suffers, and then the goodbye, it is all so brilliantly, painfully crafted, and is a moment fans will never forget.
“I’m No Jedi.”
This quote comes from season 2, episode 22 of Star Wars: Rebels – “Twilight Of The Apprentice: Part 2.”
Ahsoka’s most iconic quote is undoubtedly “I’m no Jedi.” But more than that, the line represents pretty much every line uttered between Ahsoka and Vader during their duel on Malachor.
“Anakin! I won’t leave you, not this time.” “Then I will avenge his death.” “It wouldn’t be the first time.” “Anakin.” All the dialogue is perfect for the duel and the combatants. Ahsoka’s fierce admission that she is not a Jedi fits the character wonderfully and adds even more to an already emotionally fuelled battle.
