I watched A Beautiful Mind where the life story of John Nash, the Nobel Prize winner in Economics (1994) unfolds. Not going to give my view of the movie, yet want to share my fevorite scene
The following conversation if between John and Alicia Larde, when he wanted her to explain the love and commitment she had for him. Mind you he is a mathematician. The scene is acted by Russell Crowe (John Nash) and Jennifer Connelly (Alicia Larde)
Alicia: A proof? Verifiable data? Hmm mmm
Well… How big is the universe?
Alicia: How do you know?
John: I know because all the data indicate it
Alicia: But it hasn’t been proven yet?
Alicia: You haven’t seen it. How do you know for sure?
John: I don’t. I just believe it
It’s the same with Love. I guess
Now, the part that you don’t know
Is it if I want to marry you?
was touched by the scene
One day a friend of mine asked me what was it like to be in love? and i am still searching for the answer…
