Below we list some words of wisdom by Keanu Reeves.

"I always felt a bit alone and isolated from other people...I did a lot of pretending as a child. It was my way of coping with the fact that I didn't feel like I fit in."

"The recognition of the law of the cause and effect, also known as karma, is a fundamental key to understand how you've created your world, with actions of your body, speech and mind. When you truly understand karma, then you realize you are responsible for everything in your life. It is incredibly empowering to know that your future is in your hands."

"Nothing ever truly dies. The universe wastes nothing, everything is simply transformed."

"I guess living without love, without experiencing it or being able to give it is pretty strong punishment."

"Money doesn't mean anything to me. I've made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account. I give lots away and live simply, mostly out of a suitcase in hotels. We all know that good health is much more important."

"Positive energy brings good feelings, and dark energy often means harm. But the destruction in dark energy is also a subtle aspect of construction, like how even forest fires have their benefits. Sometimes enemies are our best teachers, people can learn from their mistakes, destruction sometimes means rebirth."

"Falling in love and having a relationship are two different things."

"The simple act of paying attention can take you a long way."

"Sure I believe in God and the Devil, but they don't have to have pitchforks and a long white beard."

"How do I confront aging? With a wonder and a terror. Yeah, I'll say that. Wonder and terror."

"Our dreams can teach us, instruct us, confuse us... sometimes I think they look to be considered. And in terms of like, they are an opportunity and I think they most certainly could be utilized to focus, to try and achieve - whether it's looking for someone, or influencing us, or inspiring us."

"A relationship is an imaginative act, it's an act of creation. Someone said to me the other day that a relationship between a person and a kid is unconditional; but the relationship between adults, to each other, is conditional, in a sense. But that condition can be the best kind."

"I'm Mickey Mouse. They don't know who's inside the suit."

"Performing an exorcism was like changing your oil. It's a drag, but necessary."

"I mean, I went to a Catholic boys school for a year, but that was to play hockey. Religion class was quite contentious for me."

"Art is about trying to find the good in people, and making the world a more compassionate place."
