2014.03.17【英译中】Good bye and good luck (节选)

    Scientific and technological advances are enabling us to comprehend the furthest reaches of the cosmos, the most basic constituents of matter, and the miracle of life. At the same time, today, the actions, and inaction, of human beings imperil not only life on the planet, but the very life of the planet.

  Globalization is making the world smaller, faster and richer. Still, 9/11, avian flu, and Iran remind us that a smaller, fatster world is not necessarily a safer world.

  Our world is bursting with knowledge - but desperately in need of wisdom. Now, when sound bites are getting shorter, when instant messages crowd out essays, and when individual lives grow more frenzied, college graduates capable of deep reflection are what our world needs.

  For all these reasons I believed - and I believe even more strongly today - in the unique and irreplaceable mission of universities.

科技的进步使我们有能力探索宇宙的最深处,了解物质构成的基本成分以及生命的奇迹。

同时,如今人类的所作所为不仅危害到了地球上的生物,还危害到了地球的生命。

全球化使世界变得更小、更快、更富裕。然而,9.11事件和禽流感却提醒我们,更小更快捷的世界未必是一个更安全的世界。

我们的世界知识在爆炸性的增长,但是却极度需要智慧。现在,新闻原声摘要播出越来越短,即时消息取代了详细的阐述,个人生活越来越疯狂,这个世界需要能够深入思考的大学生

基于这些原因,我相信——并且今天更加坚定地相信——大学独特而不可取代的使命。
