Try not. Do or do not. There is no 'try'.
My sister and I have been watching Star Wars in the last few weeks, and we've finally made it to the original trilogy. We've been amazed at how much better the older movies are, despite the crap graphics and ridiculous nature of the films. Yoda, especially, has been ruined in the newer films in the series, and his tendency to speak backwards sentences has been turned into a comic and ridiculous joke. In the old movies, however, he spouts many wise sayings just like the one above, and he is actually the wise character they try to make him out to be in the newer films.
It's such a shame what George Lucas has done to this fantastic character. I miss the old Yoda and the old George Lucas. Who's with me?
