My quest has taken me through the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional and back...

Nash

Good morning, eager young minds.

Nash

Mathematicians won the war. Mathematicians broke the Japanese codes... and built the A-bomb. Mathematicians... like you. The stated goal of the Soviets is global Communism. In medicine or economics, in technology or space, battle lines are being drawn. To triumph, we need results. Publishable, applicable results. Now who among you will be the next Morse? The next Einstein? Who among you will be the vanguard of democracy, freedom, and discovery? Today, we bequeath America's future into your able hands. Welcome to Princeton, gentlemen.

Nash: I will not buy you gentlemen beer.
Bender: Oh, we're not here for beer, my friend.

Bender: What did the doctor say?
Sol: Is he sick?
Alicia: I don't know. I want to see what John's been working on.
Sol: Alicia, you know you can't go in his office.
Bender: You know it's classified, Alicia.

What you don't know... is if I want to marry you.

Alicia

Mathematics... mathematics is never going to lead you to higher truth and you know why? Because it's boring!

This class will be a waste of your - and what is infinitely worse - my time.

Nash

MIT Student: Can we open up the window, Professor? It's hot in here.
John Nash: Your comfort comes second to my ability to hear my own voice.

General: You ever... just know something, Dr. Nash?
Nash: Constantly.

John Nash: And then, on the way home, Charles was there again. Sometimes I miss talking to him. Maybe Rosen is right. Maybe I have to think about going back to the hospital.
Alicia Nash: Maybe try again tomorrow.

John Nash: Hello, Martin.
Martin Hansen: Jesus Christ.
John Nash: No. I don't have that one. My savior complex takes a different form.

A Beautiful Mind Quotes

Hansen: You scared?
Nash: Terrified. Mortified. Petrified. Stupefied... by you.

If we all go for the blonde and block each other, not a single one of us is going to get her. So then we go for her friends, but they will all give us the cold shoulder because no on likes to be second choice. But what if none of us goes for the blonde? We won't get in each other's way and we won't insult the other girls. It's the only way to win. It's the only way we all get laid.
