All characters in the series Mr. Robot have different zones in which they try to come out and play their part in their stories. They have their own problems and they convey them to the people through the dialogues. In this post, we will present you with a collection of top Mr. Robot quotes that teach us about love, loneliness, and Society.
1. The Catastrophe
World catastrophes like this, they aren’t caused by lone wolves like you. They occur because men like me allow them. You just had to stumble onto one of them. – Philip Price

2. Error 404
When you delete something, you’re making a choice to destroy it. To never see it again. you choose to delete because you need to free up space. because you don’t want it anymore. because it no longer holds value. is that what happened to Mobley and Trenton? Were they unwanted? Taking up too much space? – Elliot Alderson
The quote was from one of the scenes of the seventh episode of the third season of the show. It talks about the choice of people in life. It puts light on the fact that every choice has an effect on the life of people. If something happens where something is lost, it is their choice that happened to play a role.

The same not only tells how the only those who do not have control over their actions (the puppets) control the politics.
9. A world to escape
The quote talks about the reality of life and how people try to restrict themselves on a screen. It shows that a person might be needing fantasies to get himself out of a situation.
10. You can’t delete me
The power of control is immense. It not only takes over the thoughts of the people of the society but also takes over the control of their actions.
11. Hiding behind masks
Why do they fight so desperately to mask what they are? Or is it that they become who they are when they put on the mask? – Elliot Alderson
The people of the society try to their true feelings behind the mask. In one of the scenes of the second episode of season 2, Elliot Alderson tries to build an explanation for the sleek line between order and chaos. The character is different from society and he does not wear a mask.
12. Same old same
Repeating the same tasks each day without ever having to think about them, isn’t that what everybody does? Keep things on repeat to go along with their NCISes and Lexapro. Isn’t that where it’s comfortable? In the sameness? – Elliot Alderson
The question of sticking to the routine occurs. How can a person be satisfied if he follows the same set of orders daily in his life? How can someone expect the preparation of a change from that person?
We’re all living in each other’s paranoia. – Elliot Alderson
This quote was said by Elliot in the seventh episode of the first season. It talks about how a person in a society depends on the other and how our actions depend upon what we think the ways in which the other people will react.
14. Everything’s so fake
This is the world we live in. People relying on each other’s mistakes to manipulate one another and use one another, even relate to one another. A warm, messy circle of humanity. – Elliot Alderson
This shows the reality of the people. How they are faking as intimacy and play the blame game. People use mistakes made by others to manipulate them.
15. Showing off
A machine is different from humans as they have no emotions and they do as what is fed into them, unlike the humans who do as per their opinions and knowledge.
16. Change the world for good
Every day, we change the world, but to change the world in a way that means anything, that takes more time than most people have. It never happens all at once. It’s slow. It’s methodical, it’s exhausting. We don’t all have the stomach for it. – Elliot Alderson
The quote talks about the way to change the world. It takes a lot of time to change the mindset of people of society. There would always be a few people who will never have the mind to accept what is good and correct.
17. Beauty of rules
Elliot Anderson appreciates the presence of rules and the orders of life. They have chaos hidden behind each of these threatening orders.
18. Something about power
Those who actually believe in themselves and have the courage to take control in life, have the ability to handle the powers given to them unlike those who do not.
I’ve never found it hard to hack most people. If you listen to them, watch them, their vulnerabilities are like a neon sign screwed into their heads. – Elliot Alderson
The quote talks about how it is so easy to rule over the people and how to take control of them through hacking. It is just a simple game of analyzing the vulnerabilities.
20. Unpictured revolution
So this is what a revolution looks like, people in expensive clothing running around. Not how I pictured it. – Elliot Alderson
The quote brings out the irony in the behavior of revolution. How the way to demand a change in society has not changed itself over the years.
21. A bug
A bug is never just a mistake. It represents something bigger. An error of thinking. That makes you who you are. – Elliot Alderson
The comparisons can be drawn between a computer code and the sets of a rule that a person follows in life. There are bugs in a code and the wrong thoughts in the person’s mind which actually makes the person who he is. It is one of the raved Mr. Robot quotes.
This quote by Tyrell Wellick is so true. The man with a gun has limited power but for a man with greater power and authority, the sky is the limit. This is because society trusts a person who has the foundational power like the leaders in society.
23. The worst side
I’m good at reading people. My secret, I look for the worst in them. – Elliot Alderson
The best way of reading the person is not how he or she behaves but the art of searching the worst parts of the person. This quote is said by Elliot in the starting episodes of season 1.
In life, always the real fight is with ourselves. As long as we are true to ourselves, even in the most difficult situations, we are going to succeed.
25. Numbing the pain
Life is so much easier when you’re numb. – Elliot Alderson
It is one of the best Mr. Robot quotes. There is a stage in life where a person is fed up with his or her emotions and one tries to be emotionless until that moment stops affecting them anymore. Everything seems to be simpler when you feel numb.
26. Control is a big hoax
Control is about as real as a one-legged unicorn taking a leak at the end of a double rainbow. – Ray
In season 2, episode number 3, Ray quotes this to Elliot. The concept of control is purely fictitious. It is just in our heads. Nothing has control over anything.
27. The Background Malice
The devil’s at his strongest while we’re looking the other way, like a program running in the background silently, while we’re busy doing other shit. – Elliot Alderson
A devil will have the most power when no one is paying attention. In life, we need to sort things out with our devils so that they do not have the power to ruin us.
28. I don’t know what’s real
How do I take off a mask when it stops being a mask, when it’s as much a part of me as I am? – Elliot Alderson
A person could not figure out the line between the reality of what he actually is and the mask that he is wearing and often gets confused as to what actually he is.
29. Animals in us
Now he’s doing what all small animals do when they’re scared, pretend they’re bigger and scarier. – Mr. Robot
The people tend to pretend they are not scared and try to hide their feelings in life while pretending they are strong. This makes us no different from the small animals.
