It’s Star Wars day!!! May the Fourth be with you! We are big Star Wars fans here at Thesis Editor and wanted to share some of our favorite quotes from a galaxy far, far away with you. But these aren’t just random Star Wars quotes (although those are great, too): these are quotes that are applicable to the thesis or dissertation-writing process.

“Your focus determines your reality.” – Qui-Gon Jinn, Episode I, The Phantom Menace

Focus and work determine how things turn out, especially with your dissertation or thesis!


“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda, Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back

(With this one, we would say trying absolutely is important, but the most important thing is to just GET STARTED, which counts as doing).


“In my experience there is no such thing as luck.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi, Episode IV, A New Hope

Often, what is seen as “luck” is the result of hard work, perseverance, and preparation. Same with your dissertation. No one gets “lucky” with their dissertation – it’s a result of work.


“Fear is the path to the dark side.” – Yoda, Episode I, The Phantom Menace

While writing a thesis or dissertation may be intimidating, there’s nothing to be afraid of!

“The greatest teacher, failure is.” – Yoda, Episode VIII, The Last Jedi

Failure can teach us a lot; the important thing is not to give up, but to learn from it.


"Be careful not to choke on your aspirations." - Darth Vader, Rogue One

Don't bite off more than you can chew: narrow down your topic to something manageable so you don't get overwhelmed or pick something so big you can't really delve deeply into any one aspect. Make sure you have a clear plan so that you can meet your goals.


“The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.” – Qui-Gon Jinn, Episode I, The Phantom Menace

This is a good one to remember when you are tempted to fill your dissertation with “fluff” or filler material, just to make page counts. Just because you can write it, doesn’t mean you should – make your writing count.

"Help me, Thesis Editor, you're my only hope." - Princess Leia, Episode IV, A New Hope that's not exactly how the line went, but if you're feeling stuck or lost with your work, Thesis Editor is here to help!

I cannot sing the praises of Thesis Editor highly enough.

I am a third year PhD student and I had been struggling for months with my quantitative analysis (both running and interpreting my tests). Any support I had sought out from my institution ended up leaving me more confused than when I arrived. I came across Thesis Editor whilst I was searching online for some stats help, and I am so thankful that I did.

If like I was, you are struggling with an aspect of your PhD, perhaps do not seem to be able to get the help you need from your institution or outside, you will not regret using Thesis Editor.

Dawn, the Director, was absolutely brilliant from beginning to end. I was contacted promptly after my initial enquiry, and there was a very quick turnaround to which a quote was given after assessing my work. I was then assigned a statistitian, Dr Musicha, and received extremely comprehensive feedback within one week. This was then followed by a 1-hour consultation. My consultation with Dr Musicha was nothing less than phenomenal. Honestly I cannot even put into words how much I gained in the hour together. He not only helped me built my knowledge but practically had me share my screen and walked me through my challenges on SPSS so I had a thorough understanding - something that has not been done with my university throughout my PhD. I was taught more in that hour about my quant stats than I have by anyone else. He was also just so kind, and encouraging and really boosted my confidence.

Using Thesis Editor has been an invaluable investment, and I can only thank Dawn and Dr Musicha so dearly.
