“Anakin.” Obi-Wan’s voice had gone soft, and his hand was warm on Anakin’s arm. “There is no other Jedi I would rather have at my side right now. No other man.” Anakin turned, and found within Obi-Wan’s eyes a depth of feeling he had only rarely glimpsed in all their years together; and the pure uncomplicated love that rose up within him then felt like a promise from the Force itself.

“I…wouldn’t have it any other way, Master.”

Favorite Male Character (Part One of Three): Obi-Wan Kenobi

“This is Obi-Wan Kenobi: A phenomenal pilot who doesn’t like to fly. A devastating warrior who’d rather not fight. A negotiator without peer who frankly prefers to sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate. Jedi Master. General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Member of the Jedi Council.

And yet, inside, he feels like he’s none of these things. Inside, he still feels like a Padawan. […]

Being named to the Council came as a complete surprise; even now, he is sometimes astonished by the faith the Jedi Council has in his abilities, and the credit they give to his wisdom.

Greatness was never his ambition. He wants only to perform whatever task he is given to the best of his ability.”

~ Revenge of the Sith Novelization by Matthew Stover

Tbh I call BS on the whole “Jedi don’t sacrifice many to save one” thing which I’ve seen a lot of people talk about in the context of Anakin and Obi-Wan and saving each other. Remember when Mace Windu gathered the entire Jedi for a costly battle to save Obi-Wan? And they didn’t even know Anakin and Padme were there too, it was literally *just* for Obi-Wan. And with Yoda’s approval. So either that rule isn’t really a thing, or the entire order, including Mace Windu and Yoda, has a forbidden attachment to Obi-Wan Kenobi

…which I guess is plausible

“I think that Obi-Wan feels– and this is the way I play it- that the attraction to the dark side is always going to be a part of Anakin and any other Jedi. But Obi-Wan knows the strength of Anakin and thinks he’ll overcome it.

I don’t think Obi-Wan expected anything that happened in Episodes III to V. I think he was so trusting in Anakin and the Force; he had hope and faith. I really don’t think he expected the dark side to be so heavy and actually take Anakin away from him.” ~ James Arnold Taylor
