It's so nice to see you've managed to take the most respected art form in China and use it to pursue nothing but fame.
—Sarcastically, to Croc

Oogway: “I know how you can all get what you want. Not just fame and fortune.

Oogway: “Compassion.
—To Monkey, before he leaves

From Secrets of the Scroll

We knows the ways of the universe? Where and when a raindrop might fall? How strong the wind will blow? Is it all just an accident? Or could it be destiny?... Accident? Or destiny? Little does Po know that it was just such an accident that brought the Furious Five together all those years ago. This is the story of how the Five came to be.
—Opening narration

Oogway: “She wants to make you proud.
Shifu: “Well, maybe I could be proud if she was doing the correct form. [breaks a tea cup]

Shifu: “Is there another kind? [breaks another tea cup]

Oogway: “The cleaner, the comedian, the dancer and even the little doctor. It was no accident that you found them.
Tigress: “I failed Shifu
Oogway: “Worse. You're failing yourself. No matter how much you try, you will never be Shifu. The question is... Can you be Tigress?

Now know this, old friend. Whomever I choose will not only bring peace to the Valley, but also to you.
—To Shifu about the Dragon Warrior

There are no accidents.
—To Shifu about Po falling from the sky

Quit, don't quit. Noodles, don't noodles. [Po looks back at him, confused] You are too concerned with what was and what will be. There's a saying: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
—To Po

Oogway: “My old friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours, until you let go of the illusion of control.
Shifu: “Illusion?
Oogway: “Yes. Look at this tree, Shifu. I cannot make it blossom when it suits me, nor make it bear fruit before its time.
Shifu: “But there are things we can control! [kicks the tree and a fruit falls] I can control when the fruit will fall! And I can control...[tosses a peach in the air, leaps up, and splits it with a chop, freeing the seed] ... where to plant the seed... hi-yah! This is no illusion, master.
Oogway: “Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple, or an orange... but you will get a peach.

Long ago, I had a brother in arms. I was an ambitious young warrior leading a great army. Fighting by my side was Kai, my closest friend. One day, we were ambushed. I was badly wounded. My friend carried me for days looking for help, until we came to a secret village high in the mountains. An ancient place of healing. A village of pandas. Yes, pandas. Pandas who used the power of Chi to heal me. They taught me how to give Chi. But Kai wanted the power all to himself. He saw that what could be given could also be taken. I had to stop him. Our battle shook the Earth until finally, I banished Kai to the Spirit Realm. SHould he ever return to the Mortal Realm, he can only be stopped by a true master of Chi.
