“Trinity: It is the question that drives us.”

“Morpheus: You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he’s expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo.

?Morpheus: Why not?
?Neo: Because “I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.”

“Morpheus: Time is always against us.”

“Morpheus to Neo: Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?”

“Morpheus to Neo: What is “real”? How do you define “real”? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, taste and see then “real” is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”

“Morpheus: You have to let it all go, Neo. Fear, Doubt and Disbelief. Free your mind.”

“Child: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth.

That drives us. lt is purpose that defines. Purpose that binds us.”

“Councillor: Comprehension is not a requisite of cooperation.”

“The Merovingian: Beneath our poised appearance, the truth is, we are completely out of control.
Causality. There is no escape from it. We are forever slaves to it.

It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.”

“Neo: What are you doing?
Trinity: I’m going with you.

Trinity: No? Let me tell you what I believe. I believe that Morpheus means more to me than he does to you. I believe if you are really serious about rescuing him, you are going to need my help. And since I am the ranking officer on this ship, if you don’t like it… I believe you can go to hell. Because you’re not going anywhere else. Tank, load us up.”

Neo: I know you’re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you’re afraid… you’re afraid of us. You’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future.

I’m going to hang up this phone, and then I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see. I’m going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.”

“[on the war that devastated the Real World]
Morpheus: We don’t know who struck first, us or them. But we do know it was us that scorched the sky. At the time, they were dependent on solar power. It was believed they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the sun.”

“Morpheus: Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.”

“Morpheus: Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.”

“Agent Smith: I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.”

“Neo: “What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?”
Morpheus: No, Neo. I’m trying to tell you that when you’re ready, you won’t have to.”

“Agent Smith : Have you ever stood and stared at it, marveled at its beauty, its genius? Billions of people just living out their lives, oblivious. Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world, where none suffered, where everyone would be happy? It was a disaster. No one would accept the program, entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world, but I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through misery and suffering. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this, the peak of your civilization. I say your civilization, because as soon as we started thinking for you, it really became our civilization, which is of course what this is all about. Evolution, Morpheus, evolution. Like the dinosaur. Look out that window. You’ve had your time. The future is our world, Morpheus. The future is our time.”

“Spoon Boy : There is no Spoon.”

“Trinity : The Matrix Has You….”

“The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.”
? Morpheus The Matrix

“What is real? How do you define ‘real’? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then ‘real’ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”
