歩き疲れた 夜にたたずむ
流れる涙を記憶に重ねて

出会いの数だけ 別れはあるけど
限りない時が続くと信じてた

傷つけ合った言葉さえ 今は抱きしめ
振り返るだけ I feel alone

How should I love you
How could I feel you
Without you
数え切れない思い出が時間を

今天,很榮幸來到各位從世界上最好的學校之一畢業的畢業典禮上。我從來沒從大學畢業過,說實話,這是我離大學畢業最近的一刻。今天,我只說三個故事,不談大道理,三個故事就好。

第一個故事,是關於人生中的點點滴滴如何串連在一起。

我在里德學院(Reed College)待了六個月就辦休學了。到我退學前,一共休學了十八個月。那麼,我為什麼休學?(聽眾笑)

這得從我出生前講起。

我的親生母親當時是個研究生,年輕未婚媽媽,她決定讓別人收養我。她強烈覺得應該讓有大學畢業的人收養我,所以我出生時,她就準備讓我被一對律師夫婦收養。但是這對夫妻到了最後一刻反悔了,他們想收養女孩。所以在等待收養名單上的一對夫妻,我的養父母,在一天半夜裡接到一通電話,問他們「有一名意外出生的男孩,你們要認養他嗎?」而他們的回答是「當然要」。後來,我的生母發現,我現在的媽媽從來沒有大學畢業,我現在的爸爸則連高中畢業也沒有。她拒絕在認養文件上做最後簽字。直到幾個月後,我的養父母保證將來一定會讓我上大學,她的態度才軟化。

This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005.

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.
