| 美国首席大法官在儿子中学毕业典礼的致辞

朗读:翩翩


Now the commencement speakers will typically also wish you good luck and extend good wishes to you. I will not do that, and I’ll tell you why. 

通常,毕业典礼的演讲嘉宾都会向你们表示祝贺,并向你们致以真挚的祝愿。我不会这么做,让我来告诉你为什么。


Michael Jackson


From time to time in the years to come, I hope you will be treated unfairly, so that you will come to know the value of justice. I hope that you will suffer betrayal because that will teach you the importance of loyalty.

在未来的岁月里,我希望你会遭遇不公正对待,唯有如此,你才能懂得公正的价值。我希望尝到背叛的滋味,这样你才会懂得忠诚的重要。

Sorry to say, but I hope you will be lonely from time to time so that you don’t take friends for granted.

很抱歉,我还希望你会时常有孤独感,如此你才不会把良朋益友视为理所当然。


Audrey Hepburn


I wish you bad luck, again, from time to time so that you will be conscious of the role of chance in life and understand that your success is not completely deserved and that the failure of others is not completely deserved either. 

我祝你偶尔运气不佳,这样你才会意识到机遇在人生中扮演的角色,从而明白你们的成功并非命中注定,别人的失败也非天经地义。


And when you lose, as you will from time to time, I hope every now and then, your opponent will gloat over your failure. It is a way for you to understand the importance of sportsmanship.

当你偶尔遭遇失败时,希望你的对手会因为你的失败而幸灾乐祸,如此你才能意识到有风度的竞争精神的重要性。


Leonardo Dicaprio


I hope you’ll be ignored so you know the importance of listening to others, and I hope you will have just enough pain to learn compassion.

希望你会被别人忽视,这样你才能意识到倾听别人的重要性,同时希望你有足够的同情心去学习同情。


Whether I wish these things or not, they’re going to happen. And whether you benefit from them or not will depend upon your ability to see the message in your misfortunes.

不论我愿不愿意,这些迟早都会发生。而你是否从中受益,取决于你能否参透人生苦难所带来的价值。

精华语录


The Greek philosopher Socrates said, ‘The unexamined life is not worth living.’ And while ‘just do it’ might be a good motto for some things, it’s not a good motto when it’s trying to figure out how to live your life that is before you.

希腊哲学家苏格拉底曾说,“未经审视的人生是没有意义的”。对某些事而言,“Just do it”,或许是一个不错的座右铭,但在你还未想明白要过怎样的人生之前,这个座右铭其实并不怎么样。


And one important clue to living a good life is to not to try to live the good life. The best way to lose the values that are central to who you are is frankly not to think about them at all.

拥有美好人生的一个最好的路径,就是不要试图过轻松的人生。如果你们不思考,就会丢掉对自己至关重要的价值观。
