12月1日 香港中文大学第六十九届颁授学位典礼 校长赠言

This morning when I flipped through the programme of our degree conferring ceremony

and glanced through your names, I laid my hands on the list and prayed for each and

every one of you.

 

I pray that after you leave school, you will live a life that is worth living. You may ask:

What is a life that is worth living?

 

First, live a simple life. Having gone through your studies and curricula in the past three

to five years, you are now equipped with ample knowledge and professional skills. I am

sure you will start a splendid career. Let me remind you that happiness has nothing to do

with money and material wealth. A cozy home, simple clothing and healthy meals are the

best you can ask for. Living a simple life instead of craving for luxury is more likely to

give you unspeakable satisfaction.

 

Second, live a noble life. The dark sides of our society are many: unfairness, exploitation,

deception, to name a few. I urge you to honour your alma mater by carrying yourself in a

dignified way. Take no advantage of the under-privileged and be fair to everyone. Do no

harm to yourself and to others. A noble life is one with a clear conscience, an abidance by

justice and an uncompromised standard in morality. It is a rewarding life.

 

Third, live a humble life. Humble as a servant to serve the others as needed. Always think

of the betterment of the society, our nation and mankind as a whole. A humble person

does not insist on his own view, but listen to the others with an open mind. A great

person does not always look up to the summit of the highest mountain, but kneel down to

wash the feet of his brothers.

 

If you can live a noble, simple and humble life, you will have a fulfilled life. You will

love your family, cherish your friends and take good care of your own health. You will

ask NOT what your Society can do for you, but what you CAN do for your Society.

 

I believe that the success of university education should not be measured by the monthly

income of her graduates, or by the kind of cars they drive, the boats they sail, but by the

impact and contributions to mankind they’ve made. You will  be representing CUHK

wherever you go. Be a real CUer and make us proud.

 

My sons and daughters, when  I read your names, I pray that you will live a life that is

worth living.

 

 

第六十九届大会(颁授学位典礼)

香港中文大学林荫大道

二零一一年十二月一日

我对毕业同学的临别赠言

 

 

今天早上我翻阅了毕业礼的典礼程序。当我见到毕业生名册上你们的名字,我按

手其上,低头为你们每一位祷告。

 

我祈求你们离校后,都能过着「不负此生」的生活。你们或会问,怎样才算是「不

负此生」的生活呢?

 

首先,我希望你们能俭朴(SIMPLE)地生活。在过去的三至五年间,大家完成了大学各项课

程,以真才实学和专业知识好好的装备了自己。我肯定大家都能学以致用,前程

锦绣。但容我提醒各位一句:快乐与金钱和物质的丰盛并无必然关系。一个温馨

的家、简单的衣着、健康的饮食,就是乐之所在。漫无止境的追求奢华,远不如

俭朴生活那样能带给你幸福和快乐。

 

其次,我希望你们能过高尚(NOBLE)的生活。我们的社会有很多阴暗面:不公、剥削、诈

骗等等。我吁请大家为了母校的声誉,务必要庄敬自强,公平待人,不可欺侮弱

势的人,也不可以做损及他人或自己的事。高尚的生活是对一己的良知无悔,维

护公义,事事均以道德为依归。这样高尚地过活,你们必有所得。

 

其三,是我希望你们能过谦卑(HUMBLE)的生活。我们要有服务他人的谦卑心怀,时刻不忘

为社会、国家以至全人类出力。一个谦卑的人并不固执己见,而是会虚怀若谷地

聆听他人的言论。伟大的人物也不整天仰望山巅: ,他亦会蹲下来为他的弟兄濯

足。

 

假如你拥有高尚的情操、过着俭朴的生活、并且存谦卑的心,那么你的生活必会

非常充实。你会是个爱家庭、重朋友,而且关心自已健康的人。你不会着意于社

会能给你什么,但会十分重视你能为社会出什么力。

 

我相信一所大学的价值,不能用毕业生的工资来判断。更不能以他们开的汽车,

住的房子来作准,而是应以它的学生在毕业后对社会,对人类的影响为依归。所

以,诸位毕业会成为我校的代表。做个令我们骄傲的「中大人」罢!

 

各位毕业同学,在我的心目中大家都是我的儿女。当我诵念你们的名字时,我默

祷你们都能不负此生。

12月5日

奶奶的手术上上周四顺利结束了,29号到3号来这儿玩,这四天的精气神都挺好,回到家也不觉得累,总算松了口气。

其实很多事情没有什么如果不如果,费那么多心思去想些有的没的,还不如珍惜现在已经拥有的,努力创造自己想要拥有的。12月,已经到了2011年的尾声,虽然会很忙,但是也希望自己不要忙到迷失了自己,Life is always moving on. 以此为诫。
