I posted something on this subject on the "Lines from the saga that mirror each other" thread a while back, but thought it might generate some discussion here. Does anyone else see a sharp contrast in Obi-Wan's teachings to Anakin in AOTC, when compared to Qui-Gon teaching Obi-Wan, and (Ep4) Obi-Wan and Yoda teaching Luke? Mostly I've noticed some opposites in dialogue. Basically Obi-Wan says wiser things in the OT than the PT, and in the OT matches Qui-Gon, Palpatine and Yoda better. Qui-Gon in TPM: "Feel, don't think. Trust your instincts." Whereas; Obi-Wan in AOTC: "Patience. Use the force. Think." Also; Obi-Wan in ANH: "Stretch out with your feelings." And Palpatine, the mentor Anakin turns to perhaps for something he isn't getting from the Jedi... "In time will learn to trust your feelings. Then you will be invincible." I get the impression that Qui-Gon, Yoda, Palpatine and OT Obi-Wan are far better teachers than PT Obi-Wan. Don't get me wrong, he likely did love Anakin, but possibly couldn't provide the Master Anakin truely needed. Another one... Anakin: "I try Master." Yoda in ESB: "Do or do not. There is no try." And... Obi-Wan: "This weapon is your life!" ESB Yoda: "Your weapons. You will not need them." It seems Obi-Wan has learnt from his mistakes and redeems himself with Luke. I don't think it is just a coincidence. It seems there is possibly more weight to Obi-Wan's comments, that he failed in Anakin's training, than meets the eye. Any Thoughts?
