A quote from The Matrix, spoken by Neo in reference to a bit of wisom he learned from a child bending spoons with his mind. It signifies that a person cannot truly manipulate reality, a person can only manipulate him/herself. Only when a person changes him/herself can he/she change reality.
Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, only realize the truth... THERE IS NO SPOON. Then you will see that it not the spoon that bends, it is yourself.

Quote from The Matrix, stating that the spoon Neo holds in his hand is not real, along with everything around him. Because of this, he learns how to manipulate it with his mind.

When people use it on the internet, they usually use it as a means of non-sense.

The first meaning is that you can't change the world, because you don't have control over it. But you can change yourself and your perceptions of the reality. Later in the movie, in the elevator scene, it means that the impossible only is impossible for those who don't dare to make it possible. It means that you can break barriers if you believe in yourself. Neo feared that going up to the top of the building holding up the elevator cable is something crazy. But them, he remembered the spoon boy, and, as there is no spoon, there is no impossible, c'os he believed he could do it.
A: - Oh, my! This is impossible!
B: - No! There is no spoon! (and the job is done).

When two people lie on their sides and the outside individual has their body against the other's back and an arm over them. It's recommended that if you're on the outside, you fold the arm of the side you're laying on up so you can lay your head on it instead of having it pinned beneath your partner. A leg over their hip is welcome and comfortable.

A spoon is an imaginary unit of energy used by people with illnesses and disabilities. These people use spoons to describe daily activites with a limited source of energy.

The Spoon Theory was developed by Christine Miserandino, a woman with Lupus to describe units of energy to her friend. She gave her friend a handful and asked her friend to list her morning routine. As each activity was said, a spoon was removed from the handful.

For example, getting out of bed costs "one spoon", and getting dressed/showering costs two or three.
I didn't have enough spoons to do the dishes AND shower before bed.
