A Beautiful Mind
written by Akiva Goldsman, from the book by Sylvia Nasar

Nash: 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. I'm only here tonight because of you. (his wife, Alicia) You are the reason I am. You are all my reasons.

Kudos and much thanks go to Muhammad for this monologue, it is very much appreciated.
