Jedi Wisdom

For some reason, one of the parts that has stuck with me the longest from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was when Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn were underwater in Naboo. There was a large fish about to eat them, when a larger fish came out and chomped the larger fish up. Qui-Gon then gave the ultimate Jedi parable and said, “There’s always a larger fish.”

Just to make sure that everybody knows, Qui-Gon’s great wisdom would come to our planet from a long time ago, far, far away and be turned into a 16th century Netherlandish parable.

Which would in turn become a rather disturbing print entitled “Big Fish Eats Little Fish” (1556) by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

Just so you know. Jedi wisdom has truly been preserved.
