In Bill Gates Book for high school and college graduates, there is a list of 11 things they did not learn in school. In his book, Bill Gates talks about how feelgood, politically-correct teachings created a full generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this education set them up for failure in the real world. 

在比尔-盖茨写给高中毕业生和大学毕业生的书里,有一个单子上面列有11项学生没能在学校里学到的事情。比尔-盖茨在书中谈到让你感觉良好的政治上正确的教导培养出一整代不知现实为何物的年轻人,这种教育只能导致他们成为现实世界中的失败者。

1、Life is not fair, get used to it.

  人生是不公平的,要去适应它。

2、The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.

  这个世界不会在乎你的自尊,这个世界期望你先做出成绩,再去强调自己的感受。

3、You will not make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.

  你不会一离开学校就有百万年薪,你不会马上就是拥有行动电话的副总裁,二者你都必须靠努力赚来。

4、If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesnt have tenure.

  如果你觉得你的老师很严厉,等你有了老板就知道了,老板是没有工作任期保障的。

5、Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.

  在快餐店煎汉堡并不是作贱自己,你的祖父母对煎汉堡有完全不同的定义;他们称之为机遇。

6、If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about our mistakes, learn from them.

  如果你一事无成,不是你父母的错,所以不要只会对自己犯的错发牢骚,从错误中去学习。

7、Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

  在你出生前你的父母并不像现在这般无趣,他们变成这样是因为忙着付你的开销,洗你的衣服,听你吹嘘自己有多了不起。所以,如果你想消灭你父母那一辈中的寄生虫来拯救雨林的话,还是先去清除你房间衣柜里的虫子吧。

8、Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

  你的学校也许已经不再分优等生和劣等生,但生活却仍在作出类似的区分。在某些学校已经废除不及格分;只要你想找到正确答案,学校就会给你无数的机会。而真实人生中却完全不是这么回事。

9、Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

  人生不是学期制,人生没有寒暑假,没有哪个雇主有兴趣协助你找寻自我。自己找时间做吧。

10、Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

  电视上演得并不是真实的人生,真实人生中每个人都要离开咖啡厅去上班。

11、Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

  对书呆子好一点,你未来很可能就为其中一个工作。

第一次接触这11句话,是中学时候在某杂志上看到的,当时只是觉得这些话很有道理。如今早已走上社会,再次翻阅比尔的这11句话的时候,对它们又多了一层更深的体会,可能这就是生活、这就是人生吧。
