学习资料

President Levin, thank you very much. Dean Brodhead, fellows of the Yale Corporation, fellow Yale parents, families, and graduates: It’s a special privilege to receive this honorary degree. I was proud 33 years ago to receive my first Yale degree. I’m even prouder that in your eyes I’ve earned this one.

I congratulate my fellow honorees. I’m pleased to share this honor with such a distinguished group.I congratulate all the parents who are here. It’s a glorious day when your child graduates from college. It’s a great day for you; it’s a great day for your wallet.

Most important, congratulations to the class of 2001. To those of you who received honors,awards, and distinctions, I say, well done. And to the C students— I say, you, too, can be President of the United States. A Yale degree is worth a lot, as I often remind Dick Cheney~who studied here,but left a little early. So now we know—if you graduate from Yale,you become President. If you drop out, you get to be Vice President

I appreciate so very much the chance to say a few words on this occasion. I know Yale has a tradition of having no commencement speaker. I also know that you5ve carved out a single exception. Most people think that to speak at Yale’s commencement, you have to be President. But over the years, the specifications have become far more demanding. Now you have to be a Yale graduate, you have to be President, and you have had to have lost the Yale vote to Ralph Nader.

This is my first time back here in quite a while. I’m sure that each of you will make your own journey back at least a few times in your life. If you’re like me, you won’t remember everything you did here. That can be a good thing. But there will be some people, and some moments, you will never forget.

Take,for example, my old classmate, Dick Brodhead,the accomplished dean of this great university. I remember him as a young scholar, a bright lad~a hard worker. We both put a lot of time in at the Sterling Library, in the reading room, where they have those big leather couches. We had a mutual understanding~ Dick wouldn’t read aloud,and I wouldn’t snore.

Our course selections were different, as we followed our own path to academic discovery. Dick was an English major, and loved the classics. I loved history, and pursued a diversified course of study. I like to think of it as the academic road less traveled.

For example, I took a class that studied Japanese Haiku. Haiku, for the uninitiated, is a 15th century form of poetry, each poem having 17 syllables. Haiku is fully understood only by the Zen masters. As I recall, one of my academic advisers was worried about my selection of such a specialized course. He said I should focus on English. I still hear that quite often. But my critics don’t realize I don’t make verbal gaffes. I’m speaking in the perfect forms and rhythms of ancient Haiku.

I did take English here, and I took a class called “The History and Practice of American Oratory,” taught by Rollin G. Osterweis. And, President Levin, I want to give credit where credit is due. I want the entire world to know this~everything I know about the spoken word, I learned right here at Yale.

As a student, I tried to keep a low profile. It worked. Last year the New York Times interviewed John Morton Blum because the record showed I had taken one of his courses. Casting his mind’s eye over the parade of young faces down through the years, Professor Blum said, and I quote, “I don’t have the foggiest recollection of him.”

But I remember Professor Blum. And I still recall his dedication and high standards of learning. In my time there were many great professors at Yale. And there still are. They’ve the ones who keep Yale going after the commencements, after we have all gone our separate ways. I’m not sure I remembered to thank them the last time I was here, but now that I have a second chance, I thank the professors of Yale University.

That’s how I’ve come to feel about the Yale experience—grateful. I studied hard, I played hard, and I made a lot of lifelong friends. What stays with you from college is the part of your education you hardly ever notice at the time. It’s the expectations and examples around you, the ideals you believe in, and the friends you make.

In my time, they spoke of the “Yale man.” I was really never sure what that was. But I do think that I’m a better man because of Yale. All universities, at their best, teach that degrees and honors are far from the full measure of life. Nor is that measure taken in wealth or in titles. What matters most are the standards you live by, the consideration you show others, and the way you use the gifts you are given.

Now you leave Yale behind, carrying the written proof of your success here, at a college older than America. When I left here, I didn’t have much in the way of a life plan. I knew some people who thought they did. But it turned out that we were all in for ups and downs, most of them unexpected. Life takes its own turns, makes its own demands, writes its own story. And along the way, we start to realize we are not the author.

We begin to understand that life is ours to live, but not to waste, and that the greatest rewards are found in the commitments we make with our whole hearts~to the people we love and to the causes that earn our sacrifice. I hope that each of you will know these rewards. I hope you will find them in your own way and your own time.

For some, that might mean some time in public service. And if you hear that calling, I hope you answer. Each of you has unique gifts and you were given them for a reason. Use them and share them. Public service is one way—an honorable way— to mark your life with meaning.

Today I visit not only my alma mater, but the city of my birth. My life began just a few blocks from here, but I was raised in West Texas. From there, Yale always seemed a world away, maybe a part of my future. Now it’s part of my past, and Yale for me is a source of great pride.

I hope that there will come a time for you to return to Yale to say that, and feel as I do today. Congratulations and God bless.

莱文总统,非常感谢你。Dean Brodhead,耶鲁公司的研究员,研究员耶鲁的父母,家庭,和毕业生:获得这个荣誉学位是一种特权。33年前我获得了我的第一个耶鲁学位,为此我感到骄傲。我在你的眼睛甚至自豪,我已经赢得了这一。
 
我祝贺各位获奖者。我很高兴能和这样一个杰出的团体分享这个荣誉,我祝贺所有在这里的父母。这是你的孩子从大学毕业的光荣的一天。今天对你来说是个好日子,今天是你钱包的好日子。
 
最重要的是祝贺2001班。对于那些获得荣誉、荣誉和荣誉的人,我说,做得很好。对C学生,我说,你也可以成为美国总统。耶鲁大学的学位很有价值,因为我经常提醒Dick Cheney,他在这里学习,但提早离开了。现在我们知道如果你从耶鲁大学毕业,你会成为总统。如果你退学,你将成为副总统。
 
我非常感谢有机会在这个场合说几句话。我知道耶鲁有一个没有毕业典礼演讲人的传统。我也知道,you5ve雕出了一个例外。大多数人认为要在耶鲁大学毕业典礼上发言,你必须当总统。但是这些年来,规范已经变得越来越苛刻了。现在你必须成为耶鲁大学毕业生,你必须成为总统,而你不得不失去耶鲁大学给拉尔夫·纳德的选票。
 
这是我第一次回到这里。我相信你们每个人一生中至少会有几次旅行回来。如果你像我一样,你不会记得你在这里做的每件事。这可能是件好事。但会有一些人,有些时刻,你永远不会忘记。
 
采取,例如,我的老同学,Dick Brodhead,完成这个伟大的大学院长。我记得他是个年轻的学者,一个聪明的小伙子,一个勤奋的工人。我们都投入了大量的时间在斯特林图书馆,在阅览室,在那里他们有那些大的真皮沙发。我们有一个相互的理解,迪克不会大声朗读,我也不会打鼾。
 
我们的课程选择是不同的,因为我们遵循了自己的学术发现道路。迪克是英语专业的学生,酷爱古典文学。我热爱历史,追求多样化的学习过程。我喜欢把它看作是少走的学术之路。
 
例如,我选了一门研究日本俳句。Haiku, for the uninitiated, is a 15th century form of poetry, each poem having 17 syllables. 俳句只有禅学大师完全理解。我记得,我的一位学术顾问担心我选择这样一门专业课程。他说我应该集中精力学习英语。我仍然经常听到这个消息。但我不知道我的批评不要失言。我在完美的形式和古代俳句的节奏说。
 
我把英语在这里,和我在一个叫“的历史和美国的演讲实践课,“Rollin G. Osterweis教的。而且,莱文总统,我想在信用到期时给予信贷。我想让全世界都知道这一点,我所知道的关于口语的一切,我都是在耶鲁学习的。
 
作为一名学生,我试图保持低调。它的工作。去年,纽约时报采访John Morton Blum因为记录显示,我把他的一个课程。铸造自己心灵的眼睛在年轻的面孔游行通过几年下来,Blum教授说,我说,“我没有他的一点回忆。”
 
但我记得Blum教授。我仍然记得他的奉献精神和高标准的学习。在我的时代,耶鲁有许多伟大的教授。仍然有。他们一直会在毕业典礼上耶鲁的,之后我们都分道扬镳。我不记得上次来这里时我是否感谢他们,但现在我有了第二次机会,我感谢耶鲁大学的教授们。
 
这就是我对耶鲁大学的感激之情的感受。我努力学习,努力学习,交了很多终身朋友。从大学里留下来的东西是你所受教育的一部分,那时你几乎不曾注意到。这是你周围的期望和榜样,你所信仰的理想和你所做的朋友。
 
在我的时代,他们谈到了“耶鲁人”,我真的不知道那是什么。但我确实认为我是一个更好的人,因为耶鲁。所有大学,在最好的情况下,都教授学位和荣誉远不是生活的全部尺度。在财富或头衔中也不采取这种措施。最重要的是你生活的标准,你给别人的考虑,以及你使用礼物的方式。
 
现在你离开耶鲁,带着你成功的书面证明,在一个比美国大的学院。当我离开这里的时候,我并没有太多的人生计划。我认识一些人,他们认为他们做到了。
