John Nash’s Nobel Lecture

Thank you. I've always believed in numbers and the equations and logics that lead to reason. But after a lifetime of such pursuits, I ask, "What truly is logic? Who decides reason?" My quest has taken me through the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional -- and back. And I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life: it is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reasons can be found. Perhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart. I'm only here tonight because of you. You are the reason I am. You are all my reasons. Thank you.
