about

"You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father."
"What I told you was true, from a certain point of view."

By the time he meets Luke, Obi-Wan Kenobi has had a lot of time living by himself in the desert, and he seems to have spent that time working on his "point of view", to the point where almost everything he says is demonstrably false, from anyone else's point of view.

He still sounds ever so wise though.

lyrics

When Qui-Gon died, I tried to take over
You could say I lied when I said I could shoulder
The weight of the task I asked from Master Yoda

But I was so keen to be seen as respected
You've got to think it through and see things from my perspective

What I said was true from a certain point of view
If you think about it right I always did the best for you
In the right frame of mind, my decisions hold true
There was nothing I could do
From a certain point of view

I left you to your fate and crawled under a boulder
Out here in the wastes I grew nothing but older
I had to just keep believing what I told you:

The man in you had been superseded by machine
The friend I had was dead - just a robot there instead -
Twisted and evil

What I said was true from a certain point of view
If you think about it right I always did the best for you
In the right frame of mind, my decisions hold true
There was nothing I could do
From a certain point of view
