------------------------------------ it is such an honor and pleasure for me to be back at yale, especially on the
occasion of the 300th anniversary. i have had so many memories of my time here, and
as nick was speaking i thought about how i ended up at yale law school. and it tells
a little bit about how much progress we’ve made.
what i think most about when i think of yale is not just the politically charged
atmosphere and not even just the superb legal education that i received. it was at
yale that i began work that has been at the core of what i have cared about ever since.
i began working with new haven legal services representing children. and i studied
child development, abuse and neglect at the yale new haven hospital and the child
study center. i was lucky enough to receive a civil rights internship with marian
wright edelman at the children’s defense fund, where i went to work after i graduated.
those experiences fueled in me a passion to work for the benefit of children,
particularly the most vulnerable. now, looking back, there is no way that i could have predicted what path my life
would have taken. i didn’t sit around the law school, saying, well, you know, i think
i’ll graduate and then i’ll go to work at the children’s defense fund, and then
the impeachment inquiry, and nixon retired or resigns, i’ll go to arkansas. i didn’
t think like that. i was taking each day at a time. but, i’ve been very fortunate because i’ve always had an idea in my mind about
what i thought was important and what gave my life meaning and purpose. a set of values
and beliefs that have helped me navigate the shoals, the sometimes very treacherous
sea, to illuminate my own true desires, despite that others say about what l should
care about and believe in. a passion to succeed at what l thought was important and
children have always provided that lone star, that guiding light. because l have that
absolute conviction that every child, especially in this, the most blessed of nations
that has ever existed on the face of earth, that every child deserves the opportunity
to live up to his or her god-given potential. but you know that belief and conviction-it may make for a personal mission
statement, but standing alone, not translated into action, it means very little to
anyone else, particularly to those for whom you have those concerns.when i was thinking about running for the united states senate-which was such
an enormous decision to make, one i never could have dreamed that i would have been
making when i washere on campus-i visited a school in new york city and i met a young woman, who
was a star athlete. and it doesn’t mean that once having made that choice you will always succeed.
in fact, you won’t. there are setbacks and you will experience difficult
disappointments. you will be slowed down and sometimes the breath will just be knocked
out of you. but if you carry with you the values and beliefs that you can make a
difference in your own life, first and foremost, and then in the lives of others.
you can get back up, you can keep going. but it is also important, as i have found, not to take yourself too seriously,
because after all, every one of us here today, none of us is deserving of full credit.
i think every day of the blessings my birth gave me without any doing of my own. i
chose neither my family nor my country, but they as much as anything i’ve ever done,
determined my course. you have been there trying to serve because you have believed both that it was
the right thing to do and because it gave something back to you. you have dared to
care.well, dare to care to fight for equal justice for all, for equal pay for women,
against hate crimes and bigotry. dare to care about public schools without qualified
teachers or adequate resources. dare to care about protecting our environment. dare
to care about the 10 million children in our country who lack health insurance. dare
to care about the one and a half million children who have a parent in jail. the seven
million people who suffer from hiv/aids. and thank you for caring enough to demand
that our nation do more to help those that are suffering throughout this world with
hiv/aids, to prevent this pandemic from spreading even further. and so bring your values and experiences and insights into politics. dare to help
make, not just a difference in politics, but create a different politics. some have
called you the generation of choice. you’ve been raised with multiple choice tests,
multiple channels, multiple websites and multiple lifestyles. you’ve grown up
choosing among alternatives that were either not imagined, created or available to
people in prior generations. you’ve been invested with far more personal power to customize your life, to
make more free choices about how to live than was ever thought possible. and i think
as i look at all the surveys and research that is done, your choices reflect not only
freedom, but personal responsibility. the social indicators, not the headlines, the social indicators tell a positive
story: drug use and cheating and arrests being down, been pregnancy and suicides,
drunk driving deaths being down.it is not the vast conspiracy you may have heard about; rather it’s a silent
conspiracy of cynicism and indifference and alienation that we see every day, in our
popular culture and in our prodigious consumerism.but as many have said before and as vaclav havel has said to memorably, “it cannot
suffice just to invent new machines, new regulations and new institutions. it is
necessary to understand differently and more perfectly the true purpose of our
existence on this earth and of our deeds.” and i think we are called on to reject,
in this time of blessings that we enjoy, those who will tear us apart and tear us
down and instead to liberate our god-given spirit, by being willing to dare to dream
of a better world. during my campaign, when times were tough and days were long i used to think about
the example of harriet tubman, a heroic new yorker, a 19th century moses, who risked
her life to bring hundreds of slaves to freedom. she would say to those who she gathered
up in the south where she kept going back year after year from the safety of auburn,
new york, that no matter what happens, they had to keep going. if they heard shouts
behind them, they had to keep going. if they heard gunfire or dogs, they had to keep
going to freedom. well, those aren’t the risks we face. it is more the silence and
apathy and indifference that dogs our heels.thirty-two years ago, i spoke at my own graduation from wellesley, where i did
call on my fellow classmates to reject the notion of limitations on our ability to
effect change and instead to embrace the idea that the goal of education should be human liberation and the
freedom to practice with all the skill of our being the art of making possible. thank you and god bless you all.篇三：名人英语演讲稿名人英语演讲稿 tribute to diana
是一个不分阶层的人。this is the text of earl spencers tribute to his sister at her funeral. there
is some very deep, powerful and heartfelt sentiment. would that those at whom it is
aimed would take heed. the versions posted on several news services had minor errors.
this is precisely as it was deliverd. i stand before you today the representative of a family in grief, in a country
in mourning before a world in shock. we are all united not only in our desire to pay our respects to diana but rather
in our need to do so. for such was her extraordinary appeal that the tens of millions of people taking
part in this service all over the world via television and radio who never actually
met her, feel that they, too, lost someone close to them in the early hours of sunday
morning. it is a more remarkable tribute to diana than i can ever hope to offer her
today. today is our chance to say thank you for the way you brightened our lives, even
though god granted you but half a life. we will all feel cheated, always, that you
were taken from us so young and yet we must learn to be grateful that you came along
at all. only now you are gone do we truly appreciate what we are now without and we want
you to know that life without you is very, very difficult. we have all despaired at our loss over the past week and only the strength of
the message you gave us through your years of giving has afforded us the strength
to move forward. there is a temptation to rush to canonize your memory. there is no need to do
so. you stand tall enough as a human being of unique qualities not to need to be seen
as a saint. indeed to sanctify your memory would be to miss out on the very core of
your being, your wonderfully mischievous sense of humor with the laugh that bent you
double, your joy for life transmitted wherever you took your smile, and the sparkle
in those unforgettable eyes, your boundless energy which you could barely contain.but your greatest gift was your intuition, and it was a gift you used wisely.
this is what underpinned all your wonderful attributes. and if we look to analyze
what it was about you that had such a wide appeal, we find it in your instinctive
feel for what was really important in all our lives. without your god-given sensitivity, we would be immersed in greater ignorance
at the anguish of aids and hiv sufferers, the plight of the homeless, the isolation
of lepers, the random destruction of land mines. diana explained to me once that it
was her innermost feelings of suffering that made it possible for her to connect with
her constituency of the rejected. the world sensed this part of her character and cherished her for her
vulnerability, whilst admiring her for her honesty. the last time i saw diana was
on july the first, her birthday, in london, when typically she was not taking time
to celebrate her special day with friends but was guest of honor at a fund-raising
charity evening. she sparkled of course, but i would rather cherish the days i spent with her in
march when she came to visit me and my children in our home in south africa. i am
proud of the fact that apart from when she was on public display meeting president
mandela, we managed to contrive to stop the ever-present paparazzi from getting a
single picture of her. that meant a lot to her. these were days i will always treasure. it was as if wed been transported back
to our childhood, when we spent such an enormous amount of time together, the two
youngest in the family.fundamentally she hadnt changed at all from the big sister who mothered me as
a baby, fought with me at school and endured those long train journeys between our
parents homes with me at weekends. it is a tribute to her level-headedness and strength
that despite the most bizarre life imaginable after her childhood, she remained intact,
true to herself. there is no doubt that she was looking for a new direction in her life at this
time. she talked endlessly of getting away from england, mainly because of the treatment she
received at the hands of the newspapers. i dont think she ever understood why her genuinely good intentions were sneered
at by the media, why there appeared to be a permanent quest on their behalf to bring
her down. it is baffling. my own, and only, explanation is that genuine goodness is
threatening to those at the opposite end of the moral spectrum. it is a point to remember that of all the ironies about diana, perhaps the greatest
was this; that a girl given the name of the ancient goddess of hunting was, in the
end, the most hunted person of the modern age. she would want us today to pledge ourselves to protecting her beloved boys william
and harry from a similar fate. and i do this here, diana, on your behalf. we will
not allow them to suffer the anguish that used regularly to drive you to tearful
despair.beyond that, on behalf of your mother and sisters, i pledge that we, your blood
family, will do all we can to continue the imaginative and loving way in which you
were steering these two exceptional young men, so that their souls are not simply
immersed by duty and tradition but can sing openly as you planned. we fully respect the heritage into which they have both been born, and will always
respect and encourage them in their royal role. but we, like you, recognize the need
for them to experience as many different aspects of life as possible, to arm them
spiritually and emotionally for the years ahead. i know you would have expected
nothing less from us.
