ins of leadership to a new president, with American such a strong position to meet the challenges of the future.
我非常高兴能于此时将领导权交给新任总统 ,强大的美国正面临着未来的挑战。
Tonight, want to leave you with three thoughts about our future:
今晚,我希望大家能从 以下三点 审视我们的未来:
First, America must maintain our record of responsibility,
第一,美国必须保持它的良好 财政状况。
Through our last four budgets, we've turned record deficits to record surpluses, and we've been able to pay down $600 billion of our national debt, on track to be debt free by the end of the decade for the first time since 1835,
通过过去四个财政年度 的努力,我们已经把破纪录的财 政赤字变为破纪录的盈 余。
并且,我们已经偿还了 6000亿美元的国债,我们正向10年内彻底偿 还国家债务的目标迈进 ,这将是1835年来的第一 次。
Staying on that course will bring lower interest rates, greater prosperity and the opportunity to meet our big challenges.
只要这样做,就会带来 更低的利率、更大的经济繁荣从而能 够迎接将来更大的挑战 。
If we choose wisely,we can pay down the debt, deal with the retirement of the baby boomers, invest more in our future and provide tax relief.
如果我们做出明智的选 择,我们就能偿还债务,解决(二战后出生的)一 大批人的退休问题,对未来进行更多的投资 ,并减轻税收。
Second, because the world is more connected every day in every way.
第二,世界各国的联系日益紧密。
America's security and prosperity require us to continue to lead in the world.
为了美国的安全与繁荣,我们应继续引领世界。
At this moment in history, more people live in freedom than ever before,
在这个特别的历史时刻,更多的美国人民享有前 所未有的自由。
Our alliances are stronger than ever, People all around the world look to America to be a force for peace and prosperity, freedom and security.
我们的盟国更加强大,全世界人民期望美国成为和平与繁 荣、自由与安全的推动力量。
The global economy is giving more of our own people, and billions around the world, the chance to work and live and raise their families with dignity.
全球经济给予美国民众以及全世界人民更多的机会去工作、生活,更体面地养活家庭。
But the forces of integration that have created these good opportunities also make us more subject to global forces of destruction, to terrorism, organized crime and narco-trafficking, the spread of deadly weapons and disease, the depravation of the global environment.
但是,这种世界融合的趋势一方面为我们创造了良好的机会,又同时使得我们在全球 范围内更容易遭致破坏性力量、恐怖主义、有组织的犯罪、贩毒活动,致命性武器和疾病传播以及全球环境恶化的威胁。
The expansion of trade hasn't fully closed the gap between those of us who live on the cutting edge of the global economy and the billions around the world who live on the knife's edge of survival.
尽管世界贸易不断扩大 ,但它没能缩小处于全球经济繁荣中的我们同数十亿处于死亡边缘的人们之间的距离。
This global gap requires more than compassion, it requires action,
要解决世界贫富两极分 化需要的不是同情和怜 悯,而是实际行动。
Global poverty is a powder keg that could be ignited by our indifference.
全球贫困这个火药桶有可能由于我们的漠不关心而点燃。
In his first inaugural address, Thomas Jefferson warned of entangling alliances,
托马斯?杰斐逊在他的就职演说中告戒我们结盟的危害。
But in our times, America cannot and must not disentangle itself from the world.
但是,在我们这个时代 ,美国不能,也决不能使自己脱离这个世界。
If we want the world to embody our shared values, then we must assume a shared responsibility.
如果我们想把我们共有 的价值观赋予这个世界,我们必须共同承担起这 个责任。
If the wars of the 20th century, especially the recent ones in Kosovo and Bosnia, have taught us anything, it is that we achieve our aims by defending our values and leading the forces of freedom and peace.
如果20世纪的历史战争,尤其是新近在科索沃地 区和波斯尼亚爆发的战争,能够让我们得到某种教训的话,我们从中得到的启示应 该是:由于?卫了我们的价值观并领演讲导了自由与和 平的力量,我们才达到了目标。
We must embrace boldly and resolutely that duty to lead, to stand with our allies in word and deed, and to put a human face on the global economy so that expanded trade benefits all people in all nations, lifting lives and hopes all across the world.
我们必顶坚定勇敢地拥 抱这个信念和责任,在语言和行动上与我们 的盟友站在一起,
领导他们按这条道路前 进;循着在全球经济中 以人为本的观念,让不断发展的贸易能够 使所有国家的所有人受 益,在全世界范围内提高他 们的生活水平和实现他 们的梦想。
Third, we must remember that America cannot lead in the world unless here at home we weave the threads of our coat of many colors into the fabric of one America.
第三,我们必牢记如果 我们不团结一致,美国就不能领先世界。随着我们变得越来越多样化,我们必须更加努力地.
As we become ever more diverse, we must work harder to unite around our common values and our common humanity. We must work harder to overcome our differences.
团结在共同价值观和共同人性的旗帜下,我们要加倍努力地工作.克服生活中存在的种种分歧。
In our hearts and in our laws, we must treat all our people with fairness and dignity, regardless of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation and regardless of when they arrived in our country, always moving toward the more perfect union of our founders' dreams.
于情于法,我们都要让我们的人民 受到公正的待遇,不论他是哪一个民族、 信仰何种宗教、什么性 别或性倾向,或者何时来到这个国家 。我们时时刻刻都要为了 实现先辈们建立高度团结的美利坚 合众国的梦想而奋斗。
Hillary, Chelsea and I join all Americans in wishing our very best to the next president, George W, Bush, to his family and his administration in meeting these challenges and in leading freedom's march in this new century.
希拉里、切尔西和我同 美国人民一起,向即将就任的布什总统 、他的家人及美国新政府 致以衷心的祝福,希望 新政府能够勇敢面对挑 战,并高扛自由大旗在新世 纪阔步前进。
As for me, I'll leave the presidency more idealistic. More full of hope than the day.
对我来说,当我离开总统宝座日时,我充满更多的理想。比初进白宫时更加充满希望.
I arrived and more confident than ever that America's best days lie ahead.
并且坚信美国的好日子还在后面 。
My days in this office are nearly through, but my days of service, I hope, are not.
我的总统任期就要结束了,但是我希望我为美国人 民服务的日子永远不会结束。
In the years ahead, I will never hold a position higher or a covenant more sacred than that of president of the United States.
在我未来的岁月里,我再也不会担任一个能 比美利坚合众国总统更 高的职位、签订一个比美利坚合众 国总统所能签署的更为 神圣的契约了。
But there is no title I will wear more proudly than that of citizen.
当然没有任何一个头衔能让我比作为一个美国 公民更为自豪的了。
Thank you. God bless you, and God bless America.
谢谢你们!愿上帝保佑 你们!愿上帝保佑美国

A Speech of Louis V. Gerstner Jr. Chairman and CEO of IBM in Beijing
IBM董事长兼首席执行官郭士纳在北京的演讲
IBM has enjoyed a relationship with China that has endured for more than half a century.
IBM和中国的合作已长这半个多世纪。
But I do not believe there has ever been a more exciting time to be doing business here, as vast new opportunity is created by your sweeping modernization and ambitious government-led reform programs for thousands of state-owned enterprises.
但是我认为和中国做生意,以前从未有过比现在更 令人鼓舞的时刻;因为贵国的全面现代化和在政府领导下的对成千上万国营企业雄心勃勃的改 革计划为我们提供了新的,广阔的机遇。
This transformation, I believe, will underscore the critical importance of information technology as a driver of competitive success and real economic growth for China.
我认为;对中国而言,信息技术作为在竞争中取胜和真正经济增长的推动 力量,它在这场变革中的重要作用将得到进一步加强。
So today, I want to talk to you about what I believe has to be the agenda of a leader of an enterprise - business, government agency, university, hospital, bank anywhere in the world - the agenda regarding this technology.
所以,今天我想和各位 谈一谈信息技术。我认为它必定已列入世 界各地企事业机构领导人的议 事日程,不管是企业、政府部门 、大学、医院还是银行。
Some of you know that before I came to IBM, my background was a lot like yours.
各位当中有些人知道, 在来IBM任职之前,我的背景在许多方面和 你们都是一样的。
I was a customer of IBM. I was a customer of the computer industry.
我那时是1BM的客户,或者说我是计算机产业 的客户。
I arrived at IBM with a firmly held conviction that this technology is one of those transformational technologies that comes along every hundred years or so and changes everything in our society.
到IBM任职时,我有一 个坚定的信念:信息技术是一项划时代 的技术;这样的技术一百年左右 才会出现一次,而且它的到来会改变人 类社会的一切。
Today, in almost every industry in almost every part of the world there are many examples of enterprises applying this technology to seize competitive advantage and to create enormous challenges for their competitors .
今天,在世界上几乎每 一个角落的几乎任何一 个产业里都有许多企业通过运用 信息技术来获得竞争优势,向竞争对手展开挑战。
I think we're seeing information technology reach the point that all transformational technologies reach when they are no longer controlled by just a small group of skilled professionals, and they cross over to mass acceptance and ubiquity.
我认为我们正在目睹信 息技术进入所有划时代的技术 都会经历的一个重要阶 段,它们不再只为少数专业 人员所掌握,而转变到为大众所接受 ,并无处不在。
Networking technology is still in its infancy, yet it has reached already the point where we can call it a new mass medium. Less than 5 years after the birth of the World Wide Web, some 90 million people are online around the world, and that number will be hundreds of millions before too long.
虽然网络技术还处于初 级阶段,但是它已经可以被称为一个新的大众媒体。互联网诞生还不到五年,全球已有九千万人在使 用它。不需要多久,使用它的人将数以亿计。
Here in China, the number of Internet users has nearly doubled since just last October, to more than 1 million users.
在中国,自去年10月到现在,互联网络使用者的人数几乎已翻了一番,达到 100多万。
And I've seen statistics that say your Internet population will exceed 7 million people by the year 20
  01.
我所掌握的统计资料表明,到2001年,中国互联网络使用者将 超过七百万人。
And we all know it fast past that. The last statistic I read said that there are some where thirty millions Internet users in China. So prove the point I read later in this book. Don't spoil people with too many numbers

Welcoming an American Company欢迎美商致辞
I'm very happy that you have successfully established a branch office in Guangzhou.
我非常高兴你们最终把分支机构建在广州。
Your presence here will greatly contribute to the Guangdong business community as a whole.你们的参与对广东商界将是一个极大的贡献。
I understand that the majority of employees here are Chinese, and I think you have made a wise decision, because such constructive employment practices will greatly promote a better understanding of both American and Chinese cultures.
我听说雇员中大多数是 中国人,我认为你们的决策是正 确的,因为这个具有建设性的雇佣体系将会有力地推进中美双方文化的了解。
I wish you the best of luck in your new venture, and also hope you will be able to make a unique contribution to the economy of both countries.
祝你们的新事业蒸蒸日 上,同时希望你们为中美两 国经济做出卓越的贡献。
