He is a legend. And I think his successful legent mainly thanks for his wonderful wife. Otherwise it's hard to get this success.

I really admired the wife of John Nash, because she was always within the side of her husband no matter what the consequences going on with him, still she continued to love him. And we should always follow her attitude that loving a person is endless, that no matter what happened, you will always love him.

he is definately a legend. even though he may have suffered from mental illness, he still tried he very level best to make things right in his life and not let his illness get to him. on top of that, his wife who was always there to give him emotional support and stick by him. he may not have been known if not for this movie but i think that now, he would definately remain in our minds knowing that there was someone like john nash who had a beautiful mind.

I think that he is an outstanding individaul, if that is what you mean. The movie exaggerated the facts of his life somewhat, while he was definitelly delusional, the delusions rarelly took the form of actual hallucinations. Still, the fact that he managed to win the Nobel prize, despite his altered view of the world is very amazing.

Yes, John Nash is definitely a legend. A person who has done something good for the entire humanity and who have made a significant difference within himself is considered a legend. Winning a Nobel Prize is a great honor for a person. And it only means that you have had a significant contribution to the entire humanity. With it, you have played a significant contribution to the development of every individual who is taking part it todays vast changing world. A vast changing world which is due to the rapid development of technology and mind that brought about by the creativeness and idealogies of every individual.

The man definetly was a genuis! his theorys helped shape modern society. His wife must have been an incredible women. I think his real genius was to be able to gradually ignore his illness, which of itself says a lot about his mind!!
