名人畢業生演講 受用一生的名言精選


1.「請善用你們現在『對自己無所懷疑』這點,因為隨著年紀的增長,我們將越加務實,其中包括認清我們自身的能力與缺陷,而這種現實對我們而言是無益處的。」──2015年於哈佛大學(Natalie Portman 娜塔莉波曼)
"Make use of the fact that you don't doubt yourself too much right now. As we get older, we get more realistic and that includes about our own abilities or lack thereof. That realism does us no favors." -Harvard University, 2015

2.「一個人不可能活著卻從未在任何事上失敗過,除非你活得非常戒慎恐懼、小心翼翼,但結果可能是你根本從未真正活過,在這個狀況下,你還是因為沒活過而未戰先敗了。」  ──2008年於哈佛大學(J.K. 羅琳)
"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default." - Harvard University,
Steve Jobs

3.「死亡幾乎是生命創造的最好的一個東西,它是令生命變化的媒介,它能讓老舊的人事物讓位給新的。現在,所謂的『新』就是你們。但有一天,不會太久,你們也會逐漸變舊變老,然後也被淘汰。我很抱歉我把這一切說得這麼戲劇化,但是這非常真實。你們的時間很有限,所以不要浪費時間去活別人的人生。」──2005年於史丹佛大學  史蒂夫‧賈伯斯
"Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it's quite true. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." – Stanford University, 2005

4.「不管你將爬得多高多遠,總有些時候你會跌倒。......如果你不斷將自己推向高處......根據平均法則,更不必提還有伊卡洛斯神話,你勢必會在某個時刻殞落,這是可以預期的。而當你這麼做的時候,我希望你知道這點,記得這點:世界上根本沒有失敗這回事。所謂失敗只是生命試圖讓我們走向另一個方向。」Oprah Winfrey 歐普拉‧溫芙蕾──2013年於哈佛大學
"It doesn't matter how far you might rise. At some point you are bound to stumble. ... If you're constantly pushing yourself higher ... the law of averages, not to mention the Myth of Icarus, predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction." - Harvard University, 2013

5.「沒有任何其他人對你失敗的關注會比你還大,你是唯一一個沉浸在你的人生很重要這一個點的人。對其他人來說,你的人生只是雷達螢幕上的一個小光點而已,所以繼續前進就是了。」Jerry Zucker (美國電影導演)──2003年於威斯康辛大學
"Nobody else is paying as much attention to your failures as you are. You're the only ones who are obsessed with the importance of your own life. To everyone else, it's just a blip on the radar screen, so just move on." - University of Wisconsin, 2003

6.「沒有人關心你的成長過程多麼艱難,沒有人在乎你是不是遭受到歧視,而且你要記住,無論你經歷了什麼,這些跟你的祖先遭遇的苦難簡直是小巫見大巫──而如果他們都撐過來了,你也可以。」Barack Obama 巴拉克‧歐巴馬──2013年於莫爾豪斯學院
"Nobody cares how tough your upbringing was. Nobody cares if you suffered some discrimination. And moreover, you have to remember that whatever you’ve gone through, it pales in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured — and they overcame them. And if they overcame them, you can overcome them, too." - Morehouse College, 2013

7.「我知道追求和平遠沒有追求戰爭來得引人注意且高潮迭起......但沒有任何一項任務比這個更加緊迫了。」John F. Kennedy 約翰‧甘迺迪──1963年於美國大學
"I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war…But we have no more urgent task." - American University, 1963

8.「沒有什麼比熱情更重要,無論你想要用你的人生做什麼,都一定要充滿激情。這個世界不需要更多灰暗,另一方面,我們也得不到足夠的色彩。沒有人想一輩子平庸,然而完美也不該是任何人的目標。我們永遠不會完美,但記住這三個P:熱情(Passion)+堅持(Persistence)=可能性(Possibility)。」Jon Bon Jovi 邦喬飛──2001年於蒙莫斯大學
"Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate. The world doesn't need any more gray. On the other hand, we can't get enough color. Mediocrity is nobody's goal and perfection shouldn't be either. We'll never be perfect. But remember these three P's: Passion +Persistence = Possibility." - Monmouth University, 2001

9.「我們之中許多人在選擇我們自己的人生道路時,常常依循的是被包裝成實用性的恐懼。我們真正渴望的看起來似乎遙不可及、沒有一點成功的可能性,而且去期待這件事情也顯得很可笑,因此我們從來不敢伸手向全世界索討。」Jim Carrey 金凱瑞
──2014年於Maharishi University of Management
"So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it.” - Maharishi University of Management, 2014

10.「我從不相信運氣,我只相信準備周全。」Bob Knight 鮑伯‧奈特 (籃球教練)──2010年於Trine University
"I don’t believe in luck, I believe in preparation." - Trine University, 2010

11.「只要記住一點,如果你把手插在口袋裡,你絕對沒辦法爬上成功的梯子。」Arnold Schwarzenegger 阿諾‧史瓦辛格─2009年於南加州大學
"Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets." - University of Southern California, 2009

12.「當你因為天真而被斥責──而且你總有一天會──提醒批評你的人,一個業餘的人造了方舟,而專家則建了鐵達尼號。」Peyton Manning 培頓‧曼寧 (美式足球員)─2014年於維吉尼亞大學
"When you are chided for your naivete—and you will be—remind your critics that an amateur built the ark and experts built the Titanic." - University of Virginia, 2014

13.「今天我想和你們談談關於天賦與選擇之間的差異。聰明是一種天賦,善良則是一種選擇。天賦可以讓你很輕鬆──畢竟上天已經送給你了。選擇則可能很艱難。如果你不小心,您可能會被自己的天賦蒙蔽雙眼,而如果你被蒙蔽,這很有可能會對你的選擇造成阻礙。」Jeff Bezos 傑佛里‧貝索斯 (亞馬遜公司創始人)─2010年於普林斯頓大學
"What I want to talk to you about today is the difference between gifts and choices. Cleverness is a gift, kindness is a choice. Gifts are easy--they're given after all. Choices can be hard. You can seduce yourself with your gifts if you're not careful, and if you do, it'll probably be to the detriment of your choices." - Princeton University, 2010

14.「你也必須知道,總有些外部力量在那裡,會令你躊躇、阻礙你真正擁有你的成功。......我自己就親身經歷過。當我第一次加入Facebook團隊,有一個擁有許多讀者的部落格發表了嚴重到難以置信圖畫來詆毀我。......最後,我最好和唯一的反應就只是做我的該做的工作,並把它做好。當Facebook的業績改善,垃圾話也就消失了。」Sheryl Sandberg 雪莉‧桑德伯格 (企業家)─2011年於巴納德學院
"You should also know that there are external forces out there that are holding you back from really owning your success. ... I've experienced this firsthand. When I first joined Facebook, there was a well-read blog out in the Valley that devoted some incredibly serious pixels to trashing me. ... [I]n the end, my best and only response was just to do my job and do it well. When Facebook's performance improved, the trash talk went away." - Barnard College, 2011

15.「跟隨你的激情,保持誠實面對自己,永遠不要依循別人的路──除非你是在樹林裡而且你迷路了,然後你看到一條小徑,這種時候無論什麼狀況你都應該乖乖跟著走。」Ellen DeGeneres 艾倫‧狄珍妮─2009年於杜蘭大學
"Follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someone else's path unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path then by all means you should follow that." - Tulane University, 2009

16.「當你展開自己的旅程,你該做的第一件事就是丟掉在店裡買的地圖,然後著手開始自己畫一張。」Michael Dell 麥可‧戴爾 (戴爾公司創始人)─2003年於德克薩斯大學
"As you start your journey, the first thing you should do is throw away that store-bought map and begin to draw your own." - University of Texas, 2003

17.「這世界的可塑性比你想像的大得多,而且它正在等將它打造成形。現在,如果我是一個民謠歌手,我可能會立刻切換開關,開始唱起『如果我有一支鐵鎚』,帶動你們所有人一起唱起來搖擺起來。不過就像我說的,我來自龐克窯管樂團,所以我寧願現在拳頭裡就直接握著一支鐵鎚。」Bono 波諾 (愛爾蘭樂團U2主唱)─2004年於賓州大學
“The world is more malleable than you think and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape. Now if I were a folksinger I'd immediately launch into "If I Had a Hammer" right now get you all singing and swaying. But as I say I come from punk rock, so I'd rather have the bloody hammer right here in my fist.” - University of Pennsylvania, 2004

18. 「沒有人會記得反對者,到最後還留著的都是建造者,再更久之後,甚至連建造者都會被淡忘,留下的只剩他們創造的事物所帶來的漣漪,而這很好──這是一件好事。」Bill Clinton 比爾‧柯林頓─2010年於耶魯大學
"Nobody remembers the naysayers. In the end, all that endures are the builders, and in the end even the builders are forgotten and all that endures are the ripples of what they built, and that’s good — that’s a good thing.” - Yale University, 2010

19. 「別讓複雜性停住你的腳步,要有行動力。承擔所有巨大的不平等,這將會變成你生命中最好的經驗之一。」Bill Gates 比爾蓋茲─2007年於哈佛大學
"Don’t let complexity stop you. Be activists. Take on the big inequities. It will be one of the great experiences of your lives." - Harvard University, 2007

20.「聖靈告訴我:『只有當你沒有從中習得教訓時,你才會真的失去什麼。』」Chuck Norris 查克‧羅禮士年於自由大學
"The Holy Spirit said to me, ‘The only time you lose at something is when you don’t learn from that experience." - Liberty University, 2008

21. 「這個世界不會在乎你摔倒多少次,只要比你站起來的次數少一次就可以了。」Aaron Sorkin 艾倫‧索金 (美國編劇)-2012年於雪城大學
"The world doesn’t care how many times you fall down, as long as it’s one fewer than the number of times you get back up." - Syracuse University, 2012
