The truth is often terrifying, which I think is one of the motifs of Larry and Andrew's cinema. The cost of knowledge is an important theme. In the second and third films, they explore the consequences of Neo's choice to know the truth. It's a beautiful, beautiful story.
Everything you'll ever need to know is within you; the secrets of the universe are imprinted on the cells of your body.
No single man can be taken as a model for a perfect figure, for no man lives on earth who is endowed with the whole of beauty.
All you have to do is to pay attention; lessons always arrive when you are ready, and if you can read the signs, you will learn everything you need to know in order to take the next step.
But, you know, when I choose a film I need to believe in it and believe I can do something special with it, and after a while that means not trying to judge or analyze why I should do it. You have to follow this intuition thing, which is a mystery to me.
Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.
No human being will ever know the Truth, for even if they happen to say it by chance, they would not even known they had done so.
Man can embody truth bet he cannot know it.
It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.
What beauty is, I know not, though it adheres to many things.
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Sublime upon sublime scarcely presents a contrast, and we need a little rest from everything, even the beautiful.
The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.
He who knows does not speak; He who speaks does not know. He who is truthful is not showy; He who is showy is not truthful. He who is virtuous does not dispute; He who disputes is not virtuous. He who is learned is not wise; He who is wise is not learned. Therefore the sage does not display his own merits.
It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.
The truth is - I found myself doing these huge action-adventure movies, and um, and which are cool man. And I really love doing them. And thankfully I haven't had too much dialogue, because if I had I would have really made a mess of it. You know what I mean?
Beauty comes from a life well lived. If you've lived well, your smile lines are in the right places, and your frown lines aren't too bad, what more do you need?
I'm definitely a messy person... I know where everything is but I just can't organize. I don't make lists and find scripts on the laundry machine, and under my bed, or in the bathroom, kitchen. It's bad, I really need to take control.
Man can embody truth but he cannot know it.
I'll tell you what I did need to learn was tolerance, and I think I've been actually given a daily opportunity to practice that, and it's - it's - and I know that that sounds almost like a backhanded slap, and it is in a way because I haven't been successful at it every day.
They know they're going to look beautiful, and I don't think women should look like costumes. They shouldn't look like fashion victims.
Without the way, there is no going; without the truth, there is no knowing; without the life, there is no living.
No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn't know it.
I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.
Last night the United States dropped four 2,000 pound bombs on Saddam Hussein. I don't know anything about explosives, but, my God, do those things even need to explode?
