Good bye and good luck!
by Lawrence H. Summers, President of Harvard University

再见,好运!
哈佛大学校长 劳伦斯 萨默斯

Today, I speak from this podium a final time as your president. As I depart, I want to thank all of you - students, faculty, alumni and staff - with whom I have been privileged to work over these past years. Some of us have had our disagreements, but I know that which unites us transcends that which divides us. I leave with a full heart, grateful for the opportunity I have had to lead this remarkable institution.

今天,我将以校长的身份,最后一次在这个讲台上演讲。即将离任前,我要感谢诸位学生、教师、校友和员工,而且非常荣幸在过去的5年里能与你们共事。我们中的一些人意见不尽相同, 但是,我知道,我们的共识远远超越分歧。我心满意足的离开哈佛,感激你们给我机会领导这所杰出的学府。

Since I delivered my inaugural address, 56 months ago, I have learned an enormousamount—about higher education, about leadership, and also about myself. Some things look different to me than they did five years ago. The world that today’s Harvard’s graduates are entering is a profoundly different one than the world administrators entered.

自从56个月前我发表上任讲话以来,我学到了很多——关于高等教育,关于领导艺术,也关于自我完善。在我看来,现在与5年前不同了。今天的哈佛毕业生正在进入的世界和管理人员当年所进入的世界相比已是大相径庭了。

It is a world where opportunities have never been greater for those who know how to teach children to read, or those who know how to distribute financial risk; never greater for those who understand the cell and the pixel; never greater for those who can master, and navigate between, legal codes, faith traditions, computer platforms, political viewpoints.

现今世界,机遇对于这些人来说是空前的:他们知道如何教子女阅读;他们知道如何组合投资;他们懂得基本存储单元和像素概念;他们能掌握各种法典、传统信仰、计算机平台、政治观点并在其中游刃有余。

It is also a world where some are left further and further behind - those who are not educated, those trapped in poverty and violence, those for whom equal opportunity is just a hollow phrase.

同时,现今世界,一些人越来越落后于时代。这些人没受过教育、深陷于贫穷和暴力、平等机遇对他们而言,仅是一句空话。

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.

科技进步正在使我们能够探索宇宙的边陲、物质最基本的成分及生命的奇迹。

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.

与此同时,今天,人类所做的及没能做到的事情,不仅危害到这个星球上的生命,也危害到该星球的寿命。

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

全球化正在使地球变得愈来愈小、愈来愈快和愈来愈富有。尽管如此,9/11、禽流感及伊朗提醒我们,更小更快的世界决不意味着其更安全。
