Quote of the Day - Agent Smith

Of late I have noted with satisfaction that there is tangible progress in both my own life and personal growth as well as in that of one particular person extremely close to me. This follows years of stagnation for both of us. This has happened and continues to do so by the grace of God who taught us many things during that Great Stagnation. From this period we continue to draw meaning and identify new lessons applicable to now. While pondering upon these things, a particular sequence of comments from the second Matrix movie as spoken by Agent Smith has come to mind frequently of late. Today I shared this sequence with mom and showed her the scene in the movie in which it appears. I now share this here with you because this is a universal truth applicable to any and all people regardless if they know God or not. We were all created for a purpose and we need purpose in order to derive meaning and connectivity to the universe and the God who created it and all it contains.

Each line is spoken by a different Agent Smith clone/copy to the character Neo. The first line is spoken by the original Agent Smith followed in order by various other versions of himself.

"There is no escaping reason; no denying purpose. Because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist."
"It is purpose that created us."
"Purpose that connects us."
"Purpose that pulls us."
"That guides us."
"That drives us."
"It is purpose that defines us."
"Purpose that binds us."
