7Agent Smith THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
Agent Smith: Do you hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability.



3Agent SmithTHE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
Agent Smith: Never send a human to do a machine's job.

4Agent Smith THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
Agent Smith: Tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?



3Agent Smith THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
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. 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. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure.



3Agent Smith THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
Agent Smith: I hate this place. This zoo. This prison. This reality, whatever you want to call it, I can't stand it any longer. It's the smell, if there is such a thing. I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear that I've somehow been infected by it.



3Agent SmithTHE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
Agent Smith: 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 suffering and misery. 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.

4Agent Smith THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Agent Smith
Agent Smith: It seems that you've been living two lives. One life, you're Thomas A. Anderson, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a social security number, pay your taxes, and you. help your landlady carry out her garbage. The other life is lived in computers, where you go by the hacker alias Neo, and are guilty of virtually every computer crime we have a law for. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not.

3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus: This is the world that you know. The world as it was at the end of the twentieth century. It exists now only as part of a neural-interactive simulation that we call the Matrix.



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: 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.



3MorpheusTHE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.

4Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: Welcome to the desert of the real.



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth.



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and you believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? Do you think that's air you're breathing now?



3MorpheusTHE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.

4Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: Come on, Stop trying to hit me and hit me!



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

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



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.



3Morpheus THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Morpheus
Morpheus: You have to let it all go, Neo. Fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.



3Mouse THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

4Neo THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Neo
Neo: I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then 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 or controls, borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

3Neo THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Neo & Morpheus
Neo: Right now we're inside a computer program?
Morpheus: Is it really so hard to believe? Your clothes are different. The plugs in your body are gone. Your hair has changed. Your appearance now is what we call Residual Self-image. It is the mental projection of your digital self.




3Spoon Boy THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Spoon Boy
Spoon Boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead. only try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Trinity
Trinity: I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing. why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You're looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn't really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It's the question that drives us. It's the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.



3Trinity THE MATRIX 1999 FilmOtherQuotesQuotes

Trinity: The answer is out there, Neo, and it's looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.
