List of A Beautiful Mind quotes.

Nash: In competitive behavior someone always loses. Charles: Well, my niece knows that, John, and she's about this high. Nash: See if I derive an equilibrium where prevalence is a non-singular event where nobody loses, can you imagine the effect that would have on conflict scenarios, arm negotiations... Charles: When did you last eat? Nash: ...currency exchange? Charles: When did you last eat? You know, food. Nash: You have no respect for cognitive reverie, you know that? Charles: Yes. But pizza - now, pizza I have enormous respect for. And of course beer. (leaves) Nash: (throws stuff down and follows) I have respect for beer. I have respect for beer!

Hansen: Cowards, all of you. Come on. Whoever wins, Sol does his laundry for the semester. Sol: Does that seem unfair to anybody? Bender: No, not at all.

Nash: Classes will dull your mind, destroy the potential for authentic creativity.
