茱莉.安德魯絲為2013年科羅拉多大學柏德分校畢業生演講

 

先生女士們,十分榮幸向各位介紹一個傳奇-茱莉.安德魯絲。(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

哈囉!(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

謝謝(掌聲)。哈囉,水牛們(科羅拉多大學吉祥物),大家好!(歡呼聲)

 

早安,感謝你們一大早如此熱情地歡迎我。昨天我也很晚才就寢(歡呼聲)。我先在珍珠街上吃了一頓美味的晚餐;儘管並非我的21歲生日,我還是去酒吧親了水牛頭(當地流傳的成年禮)(歡呼聲)(掌聲)。我是指-有何不可?說不定有用;然後我繼續前往大學丘的The Sink餐廳。我想我今早似乎在那裡見過在座某些人(歡呼聲),你們還真是精力過人。說真的,現在來杯星巴克拿鐵加濃縮咖啡如何?

 

我十分高興來到這裡,這是我第一次拜訪柏德,確實令人驚艷不已。駛出機場的路上,我沿途欣賞美麗的丘陵。我想走出車外,越過一片草丘,重現我在《真善美》中的著名場景(歡呼聲)(掌聲)。但-我剛好看見「Ralphie」(科羅拉多大學吉祥物水牛)在一旁吃草,他似乎不太高興見到我,因此我打消念頭。

 

事實上,我認為我提到Ralphie時應該謹慎些。我是指,我稱Ralphie為「他」時應該謹慎些;因為據我所知,事實上Ralphie是「雌扮雄」,對嗎?(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

這令我十分高興,因為在《雌雄莫辨》中-為那些沒看過電影或音樂劇的人解釋一下-我飾演一位女扮男裝、又以男性身分扮成女裝的角色;顯然Ralphie和我有某些共同點。(笑聲)

 

DiStefano校監,感謝你的精彩介紹;還有Bruce Benson校長、James Williams院長-這場畢業典禮的主持人;校董會成員、行政人員、教育人員及科羅拉多大學柏德分校全體教職員;感謝你們所做的一切。此外,我衷心感謝畢業生委員會及委員會主席Sosi Papazian(歡呼聲),及畢業典禮主席Erica Rozbruch邀請我參加今天的典禮。

 

今天的畢業生中有位名叫Molly的可愛女孩;當她還是個小女孩時,我就對她十分熟悉。我和她父母一起見證她在這裡的成長,成為一位傑出的青年。CU(科羅拉多大學簡稱)造就了今日和未來的她;以我對她的瞭解,我相信她或許足以代表在座所有畢業生。

 

對於今天沒有家長出席,或因不可抗力失去親人的同學,請瞭解,在座所有人同樣為你慶賀,以你的成就為榮。身為社會的一份子,我們向你們致敬。棒極了!(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

我一直思考今天的情況,以及我能對你們說些什麼。我突然意識到,這場演講將成為你們大學生涯中聆聽的最後一場演講,這讓我嚇得半死。我是指,我能告訴你們什麼?我連高中都沒畢業。十分遺憾,我不曾唸過大學。

 

年輕時,我遊遍英倫諸島,在音樂廳裡引吭高歌;一位初出茅廬、擁有罕見4.5個八度音域的小毛頭。你們或許認為,歷經戲劇和電影生涯,這樣的場合不會令我緊張。但我可以向你們保證,我十分緊張,或在你們熱情的歡迎之前確實如此。

 

今天是值得慶祝的日子,但除此之外,我想你們或許也有點緊張,或許-甚至感到害怕。我是指,你們在群山的懷抱中安穩地度過了幾個年頭,在優秀老師的指導下盡可能接受最好的教育,現在你們站在下階段人生的起點,有些人或許知道未來方向,有些人或許尚未做出決定。無論哪種情況,這是你一生中可能遭遇的諸多轉變中的第一個。相信我,緊張是理所當然的。我記得我曾經對丈夫Blake說-在離開35年後,重返百老匯舞台前夕-我對他說:「你知道,我實在怕得要命。」我開始打退堂鼓。他露出微笑,只是回答:「親愛的,難道妳真的期望有其他感受嗎?」

 

今天,我再次記起,恐懼不過是人生的一部分,訣竅是接受它,然後繼續前進。事實上,真正的訣竅是不再關注自己,開始關注別人。我將近30歲時,曾經有段時間老是擔心觀眾的想法。我是指-他們喜歡我嗎?我的表現達到平日水準嗎?等等。我突然意識到,每位觀眾都花了大錢,來觀賞一場他們真正想看的演出。也許他們是經歷一天諸多的壓力後來到這裡;也許正值納稅時期;也許有人的家人病痛纏身、或和心愛的人吵架;我能想到一百種可能。然後我意識到,我的職責是為他們的生活增添光彩,造成某些改變,帶給他們3小時的沉靜、超脫;希望還有快樂。從那一刻起,我開始培養付出的心態;我不再向內看,我開始成長。我開始向外看,著眼於盡可能為他人帶來改變。因此,今天我請你們以同樣方式面對人生。

 

世上有太多付出的機會,我是指,別只是著眼於隨興的善舉-這也無妨-而是計劃性行善。有些處境危險的兒童需要輔導,有些人每天三餐不濟,有些人體弱多病卻無人照料,有些人行動不便。用你們的知識和善心,支持那些無法自立的人,為無法言語的人發聲;成為一座燈塔,照亮那些生命黯淡無光的人;為對抗全球暖化而奮鬥,成為正義的一份子,成為你理想世界的代言人。

 

這並非總是輕而易舉,無論你信仰什麼,總會有懷疑的時刻、黑暗的時刻、逆境的時刻。當逆境來襲時,好-我也可以提供你們一個小訣竅;事實上這並非我的點子。

 

我過去認識一位偉大的英國作家-T.H. White,《永恆之王》是他眾多著作之一。書中包含四部小說,改編自亞瑟王傳奇。這部巨著成為《鳳宮劫美錄》的藍本,我有幸在這齣百老匯音樂劇中飾演關妮薇皇后。T. H. White的寓意-Tim的寓意-是我時時謹記的信念,我十分樂意與大家分享。

 

在《石中劍》中-它是這部磅礡四部曲的首部曲-梅林談到逆境時,曾對年輕的亞瑟王這麼說:「悲傷最大的益處在於使人有所學習,這是唯一不變的真理。也許你會年華老去,內心充滿恐懼;也許你會夜不成眠,聆聽血管紊亂的脈動;也許你會錯過唯一的愛;也許你會目睹世界被邪惡的狂人摧毀,或得知你的榮譽遭卑劣之徒踐踏。唯一的因應之道就是學習。學習這個世界為何瞬息萬變、什麼使它瞬息萬變。這是唯一的方法,使心靈永不枯竭、永不疏離、永不受折磨、永不恐懼或猜疑、永不遺憾。」

 

經過四年孜孜不倦的學習,這或許是你們今天最不想聽見的話。但我真正的意思是:成為終身學習者。當逆境來襲時,走出陰霾、學習某些東西。

 

逆境給我最沉重的打擊是,我因失敗的喉嚨手術而失去唱歌能力。這對我來說彷彿晴天霹靂、失去畢生支柱。我是指,這曾經是我的招牌。當時,我和女兒Emma正開始共同創作一本兒童讀物。某天,我情緒特別低落,當我不斷怨嘆命運的作弄時,她說:「媽,妳不過是找到一個運用聲音的新方式。」說真的,突然間,悲傷的重擔從我肩頭滑落;我衷心接受了這個全新的學習體驗。從那時起,我們共同為所有年齡層兒童創作了30本讀物;我們盡可能為它們配上音樂和美麗的插圖,其中幾本已成為-或正被改編成舞台劇、電影和交響樂。逆境為我鋪了一條路,通往我從未夢想過的新事業。

 

好,這恰巧引出我今天想和大家分享的最後一個主題,我認為這樣東西將以無法衡量的方式豐富你的生命,那就是-藝術。我想各位應該頗為理解。(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

你們當中有些人將從事深奧的科學或醫學研究;有些人將投入法律、哲學或公職領域;有些人將投入科技或工程領域(歡呼聲)(掌聲)。希望有些人投入藝術這個美妙的世界,這是我大半輩子有幸徜徉的樂園(歡呼聲)(掌聲)。但我想說的是,無論人生道路帶領你走向何方,設法讓藝術成為生命中有意義的部分。它們是靈魂的食糧,賦予我們活力、令人心曠神怡,鼓舞我們、塑造我們、使我們謙卑。它們以無遠弗屆的方式將我們連繫在一起,它們是傳播善意的最佳共同語言。它們是一面鏡子,使我們能檢視人性和所有人性的複雜面。

 

備受尊崇的作家Katherine Anne Porter曾經寫道:「藝術永存;它們因信仰而存在。無論遭受阻礙、打壓或忽視,它們的本質、形式和作用不曾改變。它們比政府、教條和社會,甚至比孕育它們的社會和文明更長壽。它們永不磨滅,因為它們代表信仰的本質和唯一的真實。它們是廢墟清除後,我們將再次找回的東西。」

 

很棒的文筆,這些美麗的詞藻並非意味著藝術是無敵的。喔,差遠了。在這個充斥許多事物的世界中,它們是脆弱的;當預算大斧落下時,它們往往是首先被犧牲的。因此我懇請各位,在往後人生中大力支持和提倡藝術。

 

我十分自豪身為洛杉磯愛樂樂團董事會成員,藉由這個身份,我積極參與我們的推廣計畫。我鼓勵各位共襄盛舉,成為藝術消費者,參與你作夢也沒想過自己可能參與的事:芭蕾、歌劇、電影、當地交響樂團、音樂劇、社區劇場、公園音樂會、博物館。鼓勵他人,尤其是社區裡的年輕人共襄盛舉;其中的收穫和回報確實是無價的。

 

因此以上是我的想法,當你們體驗這場美妙的成年禮時。你們前程似錦,你們有幸就讀這所卓越的學府,你們已擁有邁向成功的工具。帶著你們的好運,勇敢前行。當你們邁向下階段人生篇章時,明智地使用這些工具;堅持學習的道路;明白前方不免存在恐懼和逆境;勇往直前,戰勝一切!(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

 

還有-讓藝術成為生命的一部分;誠實以對,以同理心對待他人;輕鬆生活,慷慨付出。

 

請記住,我們都是世界公民,責任中蘊含著驚人的力量。讓你所做的一切、留下的每一個腳步、接觸的每一樣事物,都因你的參與而變得更美好。最重要的是:保持正直;這將證明你值得信賴。你已準備好接管這個世界,世界將給你實質的回報。

 

恭喜,親愛的同學。今天,四周的群山確實因為2013年畢業生而充滿生機。

 

棒極了!(歡呼聲)(掌聲)

About this talk

Legendary actress Julie Andrews bid a warm adieu to more than 6,000 University of Colorado graduates Friday morning, invoking references to her beloved movies and telling the Class of 2013 to "live lightly on this Earth and give generously."

About the transcript
Hallo Buffalo People!
 
Good morning and thank you for welcoming me as you have THIS EARLY IN THE MORNING!!! I had a very late evening. It started out with a lovely dinner on Pearl Street, and even though it was not my 21st birthday, I made my way to The Pub to kiss the buffalo (why not?) and then I segued to The Sink on The Hill where I saw some of you this morning. You all have such stamina. How good does a Starbucks latte with an extra shot of espresso sound right now?
 
I am so pleased to be here. This is my first visit to Boulder and it is truly breathtaking. As I was driving in from the airport I was looking at these lovely hills. I wanted to step out of the car and walk over to a grassy knoll and make my signature turn from The Sound of Music then I saw “Ralphie” grazing in the grass and he did not look pleased to see me, so I thought better of it.
 
Actually, I should be careful referring to Ralphie as a “he.” As I understand it, Ralphie is really a she playing a he which pleases me no end. In “Victor/”Victoria” (for those of you who have not seen the movie or Broadway musical), I played a character that was a she, playing a he, playing a she. Clearly, Ralphie and I can relate!
 
Chancellor DiStefano, thank you for your lovely introduction and together with President Bruce Benson, Dean James Williams (our Graduation Marshall this morning) and The Regents, Administrators, Educators and staff of the University of Colorado, Boulder, thank you for all that you do. Also, my heartfelt appreciation to The Senior Class Council, its President, Sosi (So-See) Papazian and Commencement Chair, Erica Rozbruch,  for inviting me to attend today.
 
This is a world-class university that is providing a world-class education. Someone mentioned to me as I was preparing my remarks that CU is the best public “Ivy League School” in the country incredible minds extraordinary professors and educators cutting edge research .
 
There is a lovely graduate among you today by the name of Molly whom I have known very well since she was a little girl. Together with her parents, I have watched her flourish here and become an incredible human being. CU has helped weave the fabric of who she is today and what she will become tomorrow. Knowing her as I do, I believe she represents all of you.
 
To those students who are here today without a parent (or parents), or missing loved ones due to events beyond their control, please know that everyone here is celebrating and honoring you also, and your accomplishments. As a community, we all salute you. (APPLAUD STUDENTS)
 
I’ve been thinking about today, and what I could say to you. It suddenly occurred to me that one of the last speeches you will hear in college will be this one. That scared me half to death. I mean, what can I tell you? I never finished high school I never, sadly, attended college. As I youngster, I was traveling the length and breadth of the British Isles, singing my head off in the Music Halls—a theater brat, with a freaky 4 1/2 octave range. You might assume that after a life in theater and film, I wouldn’t be nervous in a situation like this, but I can assure you that I am or was, before your very warm welcome.
 
Today is about celebration, but despite that, you might just also be feeling a little nervous—and, perhaps even fearful. Here you are you’ve been safely nestled in these mountains for the past few years. You’ve had amazing mentors guiding your way through the best possible education. And now, you stand on the threshold of the next phase of your life.
 
Some of you may know what lies ahead of you; perhaps some of you haven’t made a decision yet. Whatever the case, this is the first of many transitions you will likely encounter in your lifetime. Believe me, feeling nervous is par for the course.
 
I remember saying once to my husband, Blake, on the eve of my return to Broadway after a 35 years absence, “You know, I’m really feeling VERY frightened about this” and I began to tear up. He simply replied, “Darling, did you actually expect to feel anything else?” I remembered—yet again—that fear is a part of life. The trick is to recognize it and then press on anyway. In fact, the REAL TRICK is to stop focusing on oneself and start focusing on others. There was a time in my late 20s when I worried all the time what audiences thought (“will they like me?” “am I up to par?, etc.”)—and it suddenly dawned on to me that everyone in the audience had paid good money to come see a show they really wanted to see, and possibly, they were there after a day of dealing with a lot of stress. Maybe it was tax time, perhaps someone had a family member who was ill, or had a fight with a loved one—I could think of a hundred scenarios. I realized that I was in a position to brighten their day to make a difference to give them 3 hours of surcease, of transcendence, and hopefully, joy. From that moment on, I began to develop a mindset of giving. I stopped looking inward, I began to grow up and I started looking outward, with an eye toward making a difference wherever and whenever I could.
 
Today, I invite YOU to start looking at life the same way.
 
There are so many opportunities for giving in this world. Don’t engage in random acts of kindness, engage in planned acts of kindness. There are at-risk children who need to be mentored. There are people who go hungry every day, there are those who are infirm and have no one to look after them. Some have experienced a paralyzing loss. Use your knowledge and your heart to stand up for those who can’t stand. Speak for those who can’t speak. Be a beacon of light, for those whose lives have become dark. Fight the good fight against global warming. Be a part of all that is good and decent. Be an ambassador for the kind of world YOU want to live in.
 
It won’t always be easy. Whatever you embrace, there will be moments of doubt, moments of darkness, moments of adversity. And when adversity strikes, well—I can offer you a little trick for that as well. Actually, it’s not mine. I used to know the great English author, T.H. White. Among other things, he wrote “The Once and Future King,” (four novels in one book that encompassed his adaptation of the Arthurian legends). That vast tome became the base of the show “Camelot,” in which I was fortunate enough to play the role of Queen Guinevere on Broadway. T. H. White’s message—Tim’s message—is one I carry with me wherever I go and I would love to share it with you today. In “The Sword in the Stone,” (book one of this magnificent quartet), Merlin says the following about adversity to young King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad is to learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honor trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then—to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” After four years of intense learning, this may be the last thing you want to hear today. But I am talking about becoming a life-long learner. When adversity hits go out and learn something.
 
Adversity hit me big-time when I lost my ability to sing due to a botched throat operation. It was devastating for me to lose the very thing that had sustained me my entire life. It was my identity. My daughter, Emma, and I had just begun writing a children’s book together, having a particularly low moment one day, bemoaning my fate, and she said, “Mum you have simply found a new way of using your voice.” Suddenly the weight of sadness fell from my shoulders and I embraced this new learning experience wholeheartedly. Since then, we have written 30 books together for children of all ages, packaging them whenever we can with music and visual delights—and several of them have since been, or are currently being, developed into projects for theater, filmed entertainment and symphony. Adversity paved the way to a new career for me that I never dreamed of.
 
Which just happens to bring me to the last topic I’d love to share with you today, the thing I believe will enrich your lives beyond measure for evermore…. and that is the arts. Some of you will do profound things in the fields of science or medicine, some in the area of law or philosophy or government service, others in the area of technology or engineering and hopefully some of you in the arts that wonderful sandbox I have had the joy and opportunity to play in for most of my life.
 
Wherever your path may take you, I urge you to make the arts a meaningful part of your life in some way. They are food for the soul. They revitalize us. They transport us, inspire us, shape us, humble us. They connect us worldwide in ways that nothing else can. They are the best common denominator for the proliferation of good in the world. They are the mirror with which we can view humanity and all of its complexities.
 
The esteemed author, Katherine Anne Porter, wrote: “The arts live continuously, and they live literally by faith; their nature and their shapes and their uses survive unchanged in all that matters through times of interruption, diminishment, neglect; and they outlive governments and creeds and societies, even the very civilizations that produced them. They cannot be destroyed all together because they represent the substance of faith and the only reality. They are what we find again when the ruins are cleared away.”
 
Those beautiful words don’t mean that the arts are invincible. As with so many things in our world today, they are vulnerable—and they are often the first thing to go when the budget axe falls.
 
I implore you to vigorously support and advocate for the arts for the rest of your lives. I am a very proud Board member of The Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and in that capacity I am active in our outreach programs. I challenge you to do the same. Be a consumer of the arts. Attend things you never thought you would ever go to in your wildest imagination—the ballet, opera, your local philharmonic, musicals, community theatre, concerts in the park, museums. Encourage others, particularly the youth in your communities, to do the same. The gifts and the rewards are priceless.
 
So, those are my thoughts today as you experience this wonderful rite of passage. You all have such bright futures in front of you. You have been blessed to attend this extraordinary institution. You have been given the tools for successes yet to be realized. Take your good fortune and run with it. Use those tools wisely as you embark upon this next chapter of your lives. Keep learning as you go. Acknowledge that there will be fear and adversity, and then go out and kick butt! Make the arts part of your life. Tell the truth be present for and compassionate toward others. Live lightly on this earth and give generously. Remember that we are all Citizens of this world. There is awesome power in accountability. Leave every place you go, everything you touch, a little better for your having been there. Above all, keep your integrity in this way you will demonstrate you can be trusted, you’re ready for stewardship and the world will respond in-kind.
 
Congratulations, dear students. These hills, today, are truly alive, with the graduating class of 2013.
