2 ‘The Matrix’ Quotes by Merovingian

“You are here because you were sent here. You were told to come here, and then you obeyed. It is, of course, the way of all things. You see, there is only one constant, one universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect.”

Merovingian

“What is the reason? And soon it does not matter. Soon the why and the reason are gone, and all that matters is the feeling itself. And this is the nature of the universe. We struggle against it, we fight to deny it, but it is , of course, pretense. It is a lie. 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. Our only hope, our only peace, is to understand it, to understand the why. “Why” is what separates us from them, you from me. “Why” is the only reals source of power. Without it, you are powerless. And this is how you come to me, without why, without power. Another link in the chain.”

Merovingian

2 ‘Matrix’ Quotes by The Architect
