谷歌创始人Larry Page密西根大学演讲(节选)

I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams.I know that sounds completely nuts.But, since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition.In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name.They all travel as if they are pack dogs and stick to each other like glue.
The best people want to work on the big challenges.That is what happened with Google.Our mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.How can that not get you excited?But we almost didn't start Google actually because my co-founder Sergey and I were too worried about dropping out of our Ph.D. program.None of you have that issue it seems.You are probably on the right track, if you feel like a sidewalk worm during a rainstorm!That is about how we felt after we maxed out three credit cards buying hard disks off the back of a truck.That was actually the first hardware for Google.
我认为,自古精英出狂人。这话听起来挺没溜,但正因为别人没你疯狂。你的对手就很少事实上,狂人屈指可数。碰巧我都认识,他们比狗仔队还忙,比亲戚还走得近,乐于接受一个又一个挑战。谷歌就有这样一帮人,我们的任务是整合全世界的信息,使其随手可得,随时可用。碉堡吧?但谷歌差一点夭折,因为我和我的搭档Sergey担心丢了博士学位。好在你们已经毕业。当时我们坚信自己是一只暴风雨里的小小鸟,总有一天会飞得很高。即使刷爆了三张信用卡,买来谷歌的第一批硬盘,也不曾后悔。

Parents and friends:more credit cards always help.What is the one sentence summary of how you change the world?Always work hard on something uncomfortably exciting!As a Ph.D. student, I actually had three projects I wanted to work on.Thank goodness my advisor said,"why don't you work on the web for a while".He gave me some seriously good advicebecause the web was growing with people and activity, even in 1995!Technology and especially the Internet can really help you be lazy.Lazy? What I mean is a group of three people can write software that millions can use and enjoy.
Can three people answer the phone a million times?Find the leverage in the world,so you can be truly lazy!Overall, I know it seems like the world is crumblingout there,but it is actually a great time in your life to get a little crazy, follow your curiosity, and be ambitious about it.Don't give up on your dreams. The world needs you all!
家长们,同学们。事实证明:多几张信用卡总是有用的,如果用一句话总结:如何改变世界。为了迷狂般的梦想而奋斗终生!其实在读博期间,我想参加三个项目.还好导师建议道:"为什么不先研究网络呢?"这个建议实在太好了,因为1995年网络就开始了迅猛发展。科技,尤其是网络确实能让人顺利变"懒"。你看三个人做的软件,能解决上百万人的需求问题,你让三个接线员回答上百万人的问题试试?只找到能撬起地球的杠杆,才能让人成功变懒。世界正在瞬息万变,但对你而言,这是个绝佳的时机!你可以不顾一切地追寻奇思,实现妙想,不要放弃梦想,世界需要你们!

So here's my final story:On a day like today, you might feel exhilarated —like you've just been shot out of a cannon at the circus and even invincible.Don't ever forget that incredible feeling.But also always remember that the moments we have with friends and family,the chances we have to do things that might make a big difference in the world,or even to make a small difference to the ones we love all those wonderful chances that life gives us,life also takes away.It can happen fast, and a whole lot sooner than you think.In late March 1996, soon after I had moved to Stanford for graduate school,my Dad had difficulty breathing and drove to the hospital.Two months later, he died.I was completely
devastated.Many years later, after a startup, after falling in love,and after so many of life's adventures,I found myself thinking about my Dad.Lucy and I were far away in a steaming hot village walking through narrow streets.
我还想说个故事:如果某天你如现在这般欣喜若狂,就像从马戏团的炮口轰了出来 ,一头冲向蓝天。请铭记那一刻的美妙,同时请铭记那些和家人朋友共处的时光,铭记每一个上天赋予你改造世界的机遇,铭记为所爱的人做出的改变,铭记生活赋予的一切美好,但生活也能轻易将它夺走。人生无常,1996年3月下旬,我到斯坦福大学读研不久,我的父亲便因呼吸困难住进了医院。两个月以后,他去世了。我当时几乎崩溃,许多年后,我创业,恋爱。历生命的种种后,我总会想起我的父亲。我和Lucy去过一个偏远又炎热的村庄,在狭窄的街道上散步。
