Inspiring quotes by John Forbes Nash Jr.

The top 10 most inspiring quotes by John Forbes Nash Jr.

  • I can observe the game theory is applied very much in economics. Generally, it would be wise to get into the mathematics as much as seems reasonable because the economists who use more mathematics are somehow more respected than those who use less. That’s the trend.
  • You don’t have to be a mathematician to have a feel for numbers.
  • I would not dare to say that there is a direct relation between mathematics and madness, but there is no doubt that great mathematicians suffer from maniacal characteristics, delirium, and symptoms of schizophrenia.
  • I seem to be thinking rationally again in the style that is characteristic of scientists. However, this is not entirely a matter of joy, as if someone returned from physical disability to good physical health. One aspect of this is that rationality of thought imposes a limit on a person’s concept of his relation to the cosmos.
  • In madness, I thought I was the most important person in the world.
  • People are always selling the idea that people with mental illness are suffering. I think madness can be an escape. If things are not so good, you maybe want to imagine something better.
  • The ideas I had about supernatural beings came to me the same way that my mathematical ideas did. So I took them seriously.
  • If things are not so good, you may be one to imagine something better. For me, I was able to imagine myself as in a role of greater importance than I would seem to be ordinarily.
  • I did have strange ideas during certain periods of time.
  • I think mental illness or madness can be an escape also. People don’t develop a mental illness because they are in the happiest of situations, usually. One doctor observed that it was rare when people were rich to become schizophrenic. If they were poor or didn’t have too much money, then it was more likely.

John Forbes Nash Jr. (1928–2015) was a renowned American mathematician whose groundbreaking work in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations profoundly influenced various fields, including economics, evolutionary biology, and artificial intelligence.

Born in Bluefield, West Virginia, Nash displayed an early aptitude for mathematics, earning a Ph.D. from Princeton University with a dissertation on non-cooperative games. This work led to the development of the Nash equilibrium, a key concept in game theory. Despite his professional success, Nash struggled with schizophrenia, a battle that was depicted in the 2001 film “A Beautiful Mind.”

His contributions earned him the 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences and the 2015 Abel Prize. Nash’s life was a testament to the power of intellectual brilliance and perseverance in the face of personal adversity. Tragically, he and his wife, Alicia, died in a car accident in 2015.
