Thank you, President Cowan, Mrs. President Cowen; distinguished guests, undistinguished guests--you know who you are, honored faculty and creepy Spanish teacher. So and thank you to all the graduating class of , I realize most of you are hungover and have splitting headaches and havent slept since Fat Tuesday, but you cant graduate till I finish, so listen up.尊敬的考恩校长,校长夫人,尊贵的嘉宾,不知名的嘉宾——你们知道自己是谁,不用介绍了,老师们还有令人害怕的西班牙语老师,感谢你们!感谢所有杜兰大学届毕业生们!我知道你们绝大多数还因为宿醉而头痛欲裂,狂欢到今天都还没有睡觉。但没听完我演讲不能毕业,所以要注意听了。When I was asked to make the commencement speech, I immediately said yes. Then I went to look up what commencement meant. Which would have been easy if I had a dictionary, but most of the books in our house are Portias, and theyre all written in Australian. So I had to break the word down myself, to find out the meaning.当我应邀来发表毕业演讲时,我毫不犹豫就答应了,然后我才去查毕业典礼是什么意思。如果我有字典的话就轻松多了,但我家里有的书大多都是波西亚的,而且都是澳式英语,所以我得自己拆分单词,摸索它的意思。Commencement: common, and cement. Common cement. You commonly see cement on sidewalks. Sidewalks have cracks, and if you step on a crack, you break your mothers back. So theres that. But Im honored that youve asked me here to speak at your common cement.Commencement由common和cement构成,意思是“常见的水泥”。在人行道上你常看见水泥。人行道上有裂缝,你踩到了裂缝,撞伤了你妈妈的背。意思就是这样。但是我很荣幸应邀给你们做“常见的水泥”的演讲。I thought that you had to be a famous alumnus-alumini-aluminum-alumis-you had to graduate from this school. And I didnt go to college here, and I dont know if President Cowen know, I didnt go to college at all. Any collge. And Im not saying you wasted your time, or money, but look at me, Im a huge celebrity.我原以为要够有名,并且必须是贵校的校友才能来这里演讲。我没在这儿上过大学,而且,不知道考恩校长是否知道,我根本没念过大学,没上过任何大学。我不是说你们在浪费时间和金钱。看看我,我可是超级成功的名人。201404/290794

I am nearly finished. I have one last hope for you, which is something that I aly had at 21. The friends with whom I sat on graduation day have been my friends for life. They are my childrens godparents, the people to whom Ive been able to turn in times of trouble, people who have been kind enough not to sue me when Ive took their names for Death Eaters. At our graduation we were bound by enormous affection, by our shared experience of a time that could never come again, and, of course, by the knowledge that we held certain photographic evidence that would be exceptionally valuable if any of us ran for Prime Minister.我的演讲即将结束。对你们,我有最后一个希望,也是我21岁时就有的一个希望。毕业那天与我坐在一起的朋友们现在是我终身的挚交,他们是我孩子的教父或教母,是我处于困境时可以求助的人,是在我用他们的名字给《哈利·波特》中的“食死徒”起名而不会起诉我的人。我们在毕业典礼时坐在了一起,因为我们关系亲密,因为我们共同分享了那永远都不能重来的时光。当然,也因为假想要是我们中的任何人竞选首相,那照片将是极有价值的明。So today, I can wish you nothing better than similar friendships. And tomorrow, I hope that even if you remember not a single word of mine, you remember those of Seneca, another of those old Romans I met when I fled down the Classics corridor, in retreat from career ladders, in search of ancient wisdom:所以今天我能送给你们的最好的祝福,就是希望你们能拥有这样的友谊。我希望,即使明天你们不记得我说过的任何一个字,你们还能记得古罗马哲学家塞内加的一句至理明言。我当年没有顺着事业的阶梯向上攀爬,转而与他在古典文学的殿堂相遇,他的古老智慧给了我人生的启迪:As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.生活就像故事一样,不在于长短,而在于品质,这才是最重要的。I wish you all very good lives.祝愿你们拥有美好的生活。Thank you very much.非常感谢大家。201402/275378

You too can have this same transformative effect on the community of Merced and our entire nation. We need your ideas, graduates. We need your resourcefulness. We need your inventiveness.你们也能够给赛德社区乃至我们整个国家带来同样的转变效应。我们需要你们的想法,毕业生们。我们需要你们的智慧。我们需要你们发明创造的才能。And as the students who helped build this school, I ask you, make your legacy a lasting one. Dream big, think broadly about your life, and please make giving back to your community a pert of thar vision. Take the same hope and optimism, the hard work and tenacity that brought you to this point,and carry that with you for the rest of your life in whatever you choose to do. Each and every single day, some young person is out there changing the ways—the world in ways both big and small.正如曾帮助建设这所大学的学生一样,我请求你们把你们的传统传承下去。要有更远大的梦想,思维要更开阔一些,你们梦想应包含为社区务。带着让你们取得今日成就的这种辉煌的希望和乐观精神、努力和坚韧,无论选择什么样的事业,让这些品格陪伴着你们的人生。每一天都有一些年轻人在或多或少地改变着世界。But let me tell you something,as you step out into that big, open world, and you start building your lives, the truth is that you will face tough times, you will certainly have doubts, let me tell you, because I know I did when I was your age. There we will be days when you will worry about whether youre really up for the challenge. Maybe some of you aly feel a little of that right now. Maybe youre wondering: Am I smart enough? Do I really belong? Can I live up to all those expectations that everyone has of me?但是让我来告诉你们,当你们走向那个广阔开放的世界时,你们就开始了建设自己人生的旅程,你们肯定会面对艰难时刻,当然也会有困惑,因为我在你们这个年龄时,曾经也是如此。将来会有那么一天,你会担心自己是否真的有能力迎接挑战。也许你们中的一些人现在已经有了这种感觉。也许你们要问:我足够聪明吗?我真的能够适应吗?我能不辜负所有人对我的期待吗? /201303/228457
