伯纳德·施瓦茨(Bernard L. Schwartz)名言

My father was an entrepreneur - a sign maker, and he had about 20 employees - and often he'd take me to business meetings, and I would listen to him talk with his workers and customers. We would also talk a lot about business over dinner.

我父亲是一位企业家——一位标牌制造商,他有大约20名员工——他经常带我去参加商业会议,我会听他和他的工人和客户交谈。晚餐时我们还会谈很多生意。

I used to give out Mickey Mouse awards to people. I like Mickey Mouse because he represented certain values. He invested in people, was good to his friends and hard on his enemies. Once a year, I would have our management team from each division come to an offsite, and I would talk about Mickey Mouse.

我过去常常给人们颁发米老鼠奖。我喜欢米老鼠,因为他代表了某些价值观。他投资于人,对朋友很好,对敌人很严厉。一年一次,我会让我们每个部门的管理团队到异地来,我会谈论米老鼠。

In very big companies, you find less entrepreneurialism than you really want to see. Success is defined as 'don't make a mistake.' And you get to be the C.E.O. by outlasting everybody else, then you're there for five or six years, and you want to get your bonus on the way out.

在大公司,你发现创业精神比你真正想看到的要少。成功的定义是“不要犯错”,你可以通过超越其他人而成为首席执行官,然后你在那里呆了五、六年,你想在离开的路上得到奖金。

Entrepreneurialism, to me, means being able to fail. And I believe that kind of leadership is not necessary only in business, but it's necessary for running countries, too. You've got to be able to believe in something strongly enough that you want to do it even if there's a risk of failure.

对我来说,创业精神意味着能够失败。我相信这种领导不仅在商业上是必要的,而且在管理国家上也是必要的。你必须有足够的信心去做某件事,即使有失败的风险,你也要这样做。

With the sole exception of President Bill Clinton, whose 'bridge to the 21st century' evoked the vision and optimism of other great Democratic presidents of the 20th century, such as FDR and John F. Kennedy, pessimism about America's economic future has been the hallmark of modern progressivism.

只有克林顿总统例外,他的“通向21世纪的桥梁”唤起了20世纪其他伟大的民主党总统的远见和乐观,如罗斯福和约翰F。对美国经济未来的悲观主义一直是现代进步主义的标志。

The 2008 Democratic presidential candidates would be wise to note that unwarranted negativism is dangerous and badly underestimates the strengths of the American people to adapt to and prosper with change.

2008年的民主党总统候选人应该明智地注意到,毫无根据的消极主义是危险的,并且严重低估了美国人民适应变化和繁荣的力量。

There's something about me that wants to grow a big company. I don't deny that. I enjoy the game, and the only way to really enjoy it is to win. I like to win. It's more fun.

我有点想成为一家大公司。我不否认这一点。我喜欢这场比赛,而真正享受这场比赛的唯一方法就是获胜。我喜欢赢。更有趣。
