Famous Matrix Quotes
It means know thy self. I wanna tell you a little secret, being the one is just like being in love. No one needs to tell you you are in love, you just know it, through and through.
By Oracle on Being in Love
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.
By Neo on Change on Change
That's exactly my point. Exactly! Because you have to wonder: how do the machines know what Tasty Wheat tasted like? Maybe they got it wrong. Maybe what I think Tasty Wheat tasted like actually tasted like oatmeal, or tuna fish. That makes you wonder about a lot of things. You take chicken, for example: maybe they couldn't figure out what to make chicken taste like, which is why chicken tastes like everything!
By Mouse on Chicken
Choice is an illusion, created between those with power, and those without.
By Merovingian on Choice

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.
By Agent Smith on Humanity
Neo, I'm not afraid anymore. The Oracle told me that I would fall in love and that that man...that I loved would be the one. So you see, you can't be dead. You can't be...because I love you. You hear me? I love you.
By Trinity on I Love You
Do you hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability.
By Agent Smith on Inevitability
This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
By Morpheus on Pills
What do all men with power want? More power.
By Oracle on Power
If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain

I know what you're thinking, because right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?
By Cypher on Regret
Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also the most irrelevant.
By Architect on Relevance
Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.
By Morpheus on The Matrix
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
By Morpheus on The Matrix
The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
By Morpheus on The Matrix
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.
By Agent Smith on The Matrix
Sometimes I think about all these people still plugged into the Matrix and when I look at these machines, I.. I can't help thinking that in a way, we are plugged into them.
By Councillor Hamann on The Matrix
I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole.
By Morpheus on The Rabbit Hole
Who has time? Who has time? But then if we do not ever take time, how can we ever have time?
By Merovingian on Time
Tonight let us shake this cave! Tonight let us tremble these halls of earth, steel, and stone! Let us be heard from red core to black sky. Tonight, let us make them remember. This is Zion! And we are not afraid!
By Morpheus on Zion
