They are my past. Everyone is haunted by their past.

Nash

You wanted to see if I was crazy and would screw everything up if I actually won.

Nash

It's not my problem and it's not your problem. It's their problem. Your answers are not on that wall. They're out there, where you've been working.

Charles

Nash: This is a group playing touch football. This is a flock of pigeons fighting over bread crumbs. And this is a woman chasing a man who stole her purse.
Charles: John, you watched a mugging. That's weird.

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.

Nash

Alicia: [about stars] I once tried to count them all. I, actually, made it to 4,348.
Nash: You are exceptionally odd.
Alicia: I bet you're very popular with the girls.

You want to know what's real? This... [putting her hand on his heart and his hand on her face] ... this is real.

Alicia

I was wondering Professor Nash, if I could take you to dinner ... You do eat, don't you?

Alicia

Alicia: How big is the universe?
Nash: Infinite.
Alicia: How do you know?
Nash: I know because all the data indicates it's infinite.
Alicia: But it hasn't been proven yet.
Nash: No.
Alicia: You haven't seen it.
Nash: No.
Alicia: How do you know for sure?
Nash: I don't, I just believe it.
Alicia: It's the same with love I guess.

Nash: Alicia, does our relationship warrant long-term commitment? I need some kind of proof, some kind of verifiable, empirical data.
Alicia: I'm sorry, just give me a moment to redefine my girlish notions of romance.

Find a truly original idea. It is the only way I will ever distinguish myself. It is the only way I will ever matter.

Nash

Perhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart.
