"episode 15 from season 4 quote" is from the famous Art of War by Sun Tzu. Also others are often borrowed from other sources, I recognize. Often, they are not original, yet enjoyable.

not, the quotes ends with the word themselves, not ego--I have been watching the episodes online and it clearly has the word themselves in the opening

I have added a note explaining the cause of the change of "Season 1 episode 3" moral. The moral was changed to "...themselves" but then reverted back to "...ego"

Its so great that you have compiled this list. However, I feel that you should know that Clone Wars is being canceled by Disney and there is a large fan movement to keep the show going. Please join your fellow fans in saving this amazing show . All you have to do is tweet #SaveTheCloneWars to @Disney , and join the page on Facebook. Show Disney that you care and that this sort of thing will not be tolerated. There is also a letter writing campaign which I suggest you also join.

Yes i heard, its really sad to know my favourite series ending :( I shall join the facebook page you mentioned in hopes that we can change this fate. However we must always remember that things must eventually come to an end so even if they finish off this show, they MUST bring in something new and improved to the viewers after ;)

Hey there! Curious if you put together season 6 yet? I had seasons 1-5 printed onto canvas (SW font of course!) for my husband for our anniversary last year. Hoping to do the same this year. I could watch them all myself again on Netflix, but then it would show up in recently watched and he would wonder why I was watching them without him!!! Haha. Thanks :) And great job!

Here is season 6:

The truth about yourself is always the hardest to accept.
The wise benefit from a second opinion.
When is doubt, go to the source.
The popular belief isn’t always the correct one.
To love is to trust. To trust, is to believe.
Jealousy is the path to chaos.
Deceit is the weapon of greed.
Without darkness there cannot be light.
Wisdom is born in fools as well as wise men.
What is lost is often found.
Madness can sometimes be the path to truth.
Death is just the beginning.
Facing all that you fear will free you from yourself.
