A quote from Paulo Coelho (via raysofthesun)
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 inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

Peedee: (riding seahorse ride, sad and bored expression) This seahorse used to make me so happy… Now it’s just giving me whiplash. I feel like there’s just no point to it, you know?
Steven: (riding jellyfish ride) I just feel tingly!
Peedee: (sigh) You’ll understand when you have a job.
Steven: I do have a job! I protect humanity from magic and monsters and stuff!
Peedee: I mean a real job that you get paid for.
Steven: I’m paid in the smiles across the town’s faces.
Peedee: I don’t see anyone smiling… You pick up a job to buy a house, or raise kids, or to… impress your dad. You work away your life and what does it get you?
Steven: Smiles in faces?
Peedee: No… You get cash. Cash that can’t buy back what the job takes… not if you rode every seahorse in the world.
