转: 比尔 Gates 斯坦福州立高校毕业典礼解说1

President Bok, former President Rudenstine, incoming President Faust,
members of the Harvard Corporation and the Board of Overseers, members
of the faculty, parents, and especially, the graduates:

崇敬的Bok校长,Rudenstine前校长,即将就任的Faust校长,俄亥俄州立企业的各位成员,囚禁理事委员会的诸位管事人,各位老师,各位父母,各位同学:

I’ve been waiting more than 30 years to say this: “Dad, I always told
you I’d come back and get my degree.”

有一句话大家了三十年,以往好不容易得以说了:“老爹,笔者一而再跟你说,笔者会回到拿到自家的学位的!”

I want to thank Harvard for this timely honor. I’ll be changing my job
next year … and it will be nice to finally have a college degree on my
resume.

小编要多谢新加坡国立大学在那一个时候给自身那么些光荣。二〇一九年,小编快要换工作了(注:指从微软公司告老)……作者终于能够在简历上写我有三个本科学位,那正是不错呀。

I applaud the graduates today for taking a much more direct route to
your degrees. For my part, I’m just happy that the Crimson has called me
“Harvard’s most successful dropout.” I guess that makes me valedictorian
of my own special class … I did the best of everyone who failed.

本人为今天列席的各位同学感到心花怒放,你们得到学位可比自个儿总结多了。哈佛科的校报称笔者是“澳大福州国立大学历史上最成功的辍学生”。作者想这大致使本人有身份代表本身这一类学生发言……在颇具的失利者里,作者做得最棒。

But I also want to be recognized as the guy who got Steve Ballmer to
drop out of business school. I’m a bad influence. That’s why I was
invited to speak at your graduation. If I had spoken at your
orientation, fewer of you might be here today.

可是,小编还要提示咱们,作者使得SteveBallmer(注:微软总首席执行官)也从俄亥俄州立商院退学了。由此,笔者是个颇具恶劣影响力的人。那正是干吗本身被诚邀来在你们的结束学业典礼上发言。假设自个儿在你们入学欢迎仪式上演说,那么能够坚持不渝到今天在此处毕业的人唯恐会少得多啊。

Harvard was just a phenomenal experience for me. Academic life was
fascinating. I used to sit in on lots of classes I hadn’t even signed up
for. And dorm life was terrific. I lived up at Radcliffe, in Currier
House. There were always lots of people in my dorm room late at night
discussing things, because everyone knew I didn’t worry about getting up
in the morning. That’s how I came to be the leader of the anti-social
group. We clung to each other as a way of validating our rejection of
all those social people.

对本人来说,德克萨斯奥斯汀分校的就学经历是一段特出的经历。学校生活很有趣,我常去旁听作者没选修的课。特拉华Madison分校的课外生活也很棒,小编在Radcliffe过着悠闲自在的光阴。每日小编的起居室里总有诸多人直接待到半夜,钻探着各类工作。因为各样人都知晓作者未曾考虑第3天早起。那使得本人成为了高校里这几个不安分学生的首领,我们相互粘在一道,做出一种拒绝全体正规学生的情态。

Radcliffe was a great place to live. There were more women up there, and
most of the guys were science-math types. That combination offered me
the best odds, if you know what I mean. This is where I learned the sad
lesson that improving your odds doesn’t guarantee success.

Radcliffe是个过日子的好地方。那里的女子比男士多,而且抢先四分之二男子都是理工的。这种情景为小编创造了最佳的机遇,假如你们明白本身的情致。可惜的是,小编就是在此间学到了人生中优伤的一课:机会大,并不等于你就会中标。

One of my biggest memories of Harvard came in January 1975, when I made
a call from Currier House to a company in Albuquerque that had begun
making the world’s first personal computers. I offered to sell them
software.

作者在加州洛杉矶分校科最难忘的回看之一,发生在一九七四年四月。那时,作者从宿舍楼里给位于Albuquerque的一家店铺打了3个电话,那家公司曾经在最先构建世界上率先台个人电脑。笔者提议想向他们出售软件。

I worried that they would realize I was just a student in a dorm and
hang up on me. Instead they said: “We’re not quite ready, come see us in
a month,” which was a good thing, because we hadn’t written the software
yet. From that moment, I worked day and night on this little extra
credit project that marked the end of my college education and the
beginning of a remarkable journey with Microsoft.

本人很担心,他们会意识自身是三个住在宿舍的学习者,从而挂断电话。然而她们却说:“大家还没准备好,三个月后你再来找大家啊。”那是个好消息,因为当时
软件还平素没有写出来啊。正是从那些时候起,作者日以继夜地在那个小小的的课余项目上干活,那导致了自作者学生生活的了断,以及通往微软公司的不通常的旅程的开始。

What I remember above all about Harvard was being in the midst of so
much energy and intelligence. It could be exhilarating, intimidating,
sometimes even discouraging, but always challenging. It was an amazing
privilege – and though I left early, I was transformed by my years at
Harvard, the friendships I made, and the ideas I worked on.

无论如何,作者对南洋理工科的追思主要都与精神的生命力和智力活动有关。耶路撒冷希伯来的生存令人心花怒放,也令人感到有压力,有时甚至会觉得气馁,但千古充满了挑衅性。生
活在南洋理工科是一种吸引人的特种对待……纵然本人离开得比较早,不过作者在此间的阅历、在此处结识的朋友、在此处发展起来的某个想法,永远地改成了本人。

But taking a serious look back … I do have one big regret.

不过,即便现在几乎地纪念起来,小编确实有三个真正的遗憾。

I left Harvard with no real awareness of the awful inequities in the
world – the appalling disparities of health, and wealth, and opportunity
that condemn millions of people to lives of despair.

本身偏离加州洛杉矶分校的时候,根本没有察觉到那个世界是多么的差异等。人类在正规、能源和机会上的不平等大得可怕,它们使得众多的人们被迫生活在绝望之中。

I learned a lot here at Harvard about new ideas in economics and
politics. I got great exposure to the advances being made in the
sciences.

本人在浦项科技学到了累累工学和政治学的新思考。作者也询问了重重不易上的新进展。

But humanity’s greatest advances are not in its discoveries – but in how
those discoveries are applied to reduce inequity. Whether through
democracy, strong public education, quality health care, or broad
economic opportunity – reducing inequity is the highest human
achievement.

不过,人类最大的上扬并不出自于这个发现,而是来自于那二个有助于削减人类不同的发现。不管通过何种手段——民主制度、健全的共用教育种类、高品质的医疗保健、照旧广大的经济机会——收缩不平等始终是全人类最大的成就。

I left campus knowing little about the millions of young people cheated
out of educational opportunities here in this country. And I knew
nothing about the millions of people living in unspeakable poverty and
disease in developing countries.

作者离开学校的时候,根本不亮堂在这些国度里,有几百万的青年不能得到接受教育的机遇。笔者也不知晓,发展中中原人民共和国家里有为数不少的人们生存在不能够形容的贫乏和病魔之中。

It took me decades to find out.

小编花了几十年才晓得了这个事情。

You graduates came to Harvard at a different time. You know more about
the world’s inequities than the classes that came before. In your years
here, I hope you’ve had a chance to think about how – in this age of
accelerating technology – we can finally take on these inequities, and
we can solve them.

列席的各位同学,你们是在与本人差异的时日来临澳大列日国立的。你们比原先的学习者,更加多地打听世界是哪些的不等同。在你们的洛桑联邦理工科求学进程中,我愿意您们已经考虑过八个题材,那便是在那些新技巧加速前行的时期,大家怎么最终应对这种分化,以及大家如何来化解这些题材。

Imagine, just for the sake of discussion, that you had a few hours a
week and a few dollars a month to donate to a cause – and you wanted to
spend that time and money where it would have the greatest impact in
saving and improving lives. Where would you spend it?

为了切磋的方便人民群众,请想象一下,假若你每一个礼拜能够捐献一些时刻、每一个月能够捐献一些钱——你期望那些日子和钱财,能够用到对拯救生命和立异人类生存有最大效劳的地方。你会选拔什么地点?

For Melinda and for me, the challenge is the same: how can we do the
most good for the greatest number with the resources we have.

对Melinda(注:盖茨的老伴)和本人的话,那也是大家面临的标题:大家怎么能将大家具有的能源发挥出最大的成效。

During our discussions on this question, Melinda and I read an article
about the millions of children who were dying every year in poor
countries from diseases that we had long ago made harmless in this
country. Measles, malaria, pneumonia, hepatitis B, yellow fever. One
disease I had never even heard of, rotavirus, was killing half a million
kids each year – none of them in the United States.

在议论进度中,Melinda和自家读到了一篇小说,里面说在那多少个贫困的国度,每年有数百万的孩子死于那几个在United States早已小意思的病症。咽肿、疟疾、肺水肿、乙型肝脓肿、黄热病、还有一种以前本身尚未据说过的轮状病毒,这几个病症每年造成50万娃儿去世,可是在美利坚合众国一例过逝病例也并未。

We were shocked. We had just assumed that if millions of children were
dying and they could be saved, the world would make it a priority to
discover and deliver the medicines to save them. But it did not. For
under a dollar, there were interventions that could save lives that just
weren’t being delivered.

大家被震惊了。大家想,要是几百万幼童正在与世长辞线上挣扎,而且她们是能够被挽救的,那么世界应该将用药物拯救他们当作头等大事。不过实际并非如此。那多少个价格还不到一美金的救生的药剂,并从未送到他俩的手中。

If you believe that every life has equal value, it’s revolting to learn
that some lives are seen as worth saving and others are not. We said to
ourselves: “This can’t be true. But if it is true, it deserves to be the
priority of our giving.”

假使您相信种种生命都以一模一样的,那么当你发觉某个生命被挽救了,而另一部分性命被扬弃了,你会感觉到不能够经受。大家对自个儿说:“事情不容许那样。借使那是实在,那么它应该是我们大力的头等大事。”

So we began our work in the same way anyone here would begin it. We
asked: “How could the world let these children die?”

之所以,大家用任何人都会想到的不二法门起初工作。大家问:“那些世界怎么能够眼睁睁看着这一个孩子死去?”

The answer is simple, and harsh. The market did not reward saving the
lives of these children, and governments did not subsidize it. So the
children died because their mothers and their fathers had no power in
the market and no voice in the system.

答案很不难,也很令人狼狈。在市经中,拯救小孩子是一项尚未毛利的行事,政坛也不会提供协理。这么些娃娃之所以会死去,是因为她俩的老人家在经济上没有实力,在政治上没有能力发出声音。

But you and I have both.

而是,你们和作者在经济上有实力,在政治上可以发出声音。

We can make market forces work better for the poor if we can develop a
more creative capitalism – if we can stretch the reach of market forces
so that more people can make a profit, or at least make a living,
serving people who are suffering from the worst inequities. We also can
press governments around the world to spend taxpayer money in ways that
better reflect the values of the people who pay the taxes.

我们得以让市集更好地为穷人服务,假诺大家能够统一筹划出一种更有创新性的资本主义制度——如若大家能够改变市镇,让更加多的人方可拿到净利润,也许至少可以保全生活——那么,那就足以帮到那多少个正在极端差别的光景中受苦的芸芸众生。大家还是能向整个世界的政坛施加压力,须求他们将纳税人的钱,花到更适合纳税义务人价值观
的地点。

If we can find approaches that meet the needs of the poor in ways that
generate profits for business and votes for politicians, we will have
found a sustainable way to reduce inequity in the world. This task is
open-ended. It can never be finished. But a conscious effort to answer
this challenge will change the world.

倘诺我们能够找到这么一种办法,既能够帮到穷人,又能够为商贩带来净利润,为军事家带来选票,那么我们就找到了一种收缩世界性不同的可不断的迈入征程。这几个职分是无比的。它不容许被全然形成,可是别的自觉地缓解那个难题的尝尝,都将会改变那么些世界。

I am optimistic that we can do this, but I talk to skeptics who claim
there is no hope. They say: “Inequity has been with us since the
beginning, and will be with us till the end – because people just …
don’t … care.” I completely disagree.

在那个难点上,小编是乐观的。可是,笔者也赶上过这么些感到绝望的嫌疑主义者。他们说:“不等同从人类诞生的第②天就存在,到人类灭亡的末了一天也将存在。——因为人类对这一个难点根本不在乎。”小编一心不可能同意那种看法。

I believe we have more caring than we know what to do with.

自家深信,难题不是我们不在乎,而是咱们不理解如何是好。

All of us here in this Yard, at one time or another, have seen human
tragedies that broke our hearts, and yet we did nothing – not because we
didn’t care, but because we didn’t know what to do. If we had known how
to help, we would have acted.

此时在这几个庭院里的全体人,生命中总有这么或那样的随时,目睹人类的喜剧,感到特别可悲。可是大家什么样也没做,并非大家东风吹马耳,而是因为大家不通晓做什么和咋办。假如大家理解哪些做是卓有成效的,那么我们就会选用行动。

The barrier to change is not too little caring; it is too much
complexity.

改变世界的阻止,并非人类的漠然,而是世界实在太复杂。

To turn caring into action, we need to see a problem, see a solution,
and see the impact. But complexity blocks all three steps.

为了将关心转变为行动,我们须要找到难点,发现消除办法的方式,评估结果。不过世界的复杂使得全数这么些手续都讨厌做到。

Even with the advent of the Internet and 24-hour news, it is still a
complex enterprise to get people to truly see the problems. When an
airplane crashes, officials immediately call a press conference. They
promise to investigate, determine the cause, and prevent similar crashes
in the future.

即使有了互连网和24小时直播的新闻台,让大千世界的确意识难题所在,仍旧12分困难。当一架飞机坠毁了,官员们会立时举行消息公布会,他们承诺进行考察、找到原因、防止未来再一次发生类似事故。

But if the officials were brutally honest, they would say: “Of all the
people in the world who died today from preventable causes, one half of
one percent of them were on this plane. We’re determined to do
everything possible to solve the problem that took the lives of the one
half of one percent.”

只是假设那么些领导敢说心声,他们就会说:“在前几天这一天,环球全数能够制止的与世长辞在那之中,只有0.5%的死者来自于本次空难。大家锐意尽一切努力,调查那个0.5%的驾鹤归西原因。”

The bigger problem is not the plane crash, but the millions of
preventable deaths.

总之,更注重的难点不是这一次空难,而是别的几百万可防止止的归西事件。

We don’t read much about these deaths. The media covers what’s new – and
millions of people dying is nothing new. So it stays in the background,
where it’s easier to ignore. But even when we do see it or read about
it, it’s difficult to keep our eyes on the problem. It’s hard to look at
suffering if the situation is so complex that we don’t know how to help.
And so we look away.

我们并不曾过多机遇理解那个死去事件。媒体连日来报告音讯,几百万人即将死去并非消息。借使没有人电视发表,那么那一个事件就很不难被忽视。另一方面,尽管大家确实目睹了轩然大波作者照旧看到了相关报纸发表,大家也很难持续关心这几个事件。望着客人受苦是令人伤心的,何况难题又如此繁复,大家一直不知底哪些去帮助她
人。所以大家会将脸转过去。

If we can really see a problem, which is the first step, we come to the
second step: cutting through the complexity to find a solution.

尽管大家确实意识了难点所在,也只是是横跨了第三步,接着还有第壹步:那便是从复杂的轩然大波中找到消除办法。

Finding solutions is essential if we want to make the most of our
caring. If we have clear and proven answers anytime an organization or
individual asks “How can I help?,” then we can get action – and we can
make sure that none of the caring in the world is wasted. But complexity
makes it hard to mark a path of action for everyone who cares — and that
makes it hard for their caring to matter.

只要我们要让关心落实,我们就必须找到化解办法。假若大家有三个显明的和有限支撑的答案,那么当其余集体和个体产生疑问“如何自己能提供支援”的时
候,大家就能采用行动。大家就可以保障不浪费一丁点举世人类对客人的青眼。可是,世界的复杂使得很难找到对全球每两个有慈善的人都有效的行走措施,
由这个人类对客人的关心往往很难爆发实效。
