  Remarks by the President on Winning the Nobel Peace Prize

  Rose Garden

  October 9, 2009

  美国总统奥巴马就荣获诺贝尔和平奖发表的讲话

  玫瑰园

  2009年10月9日 

  Good morning.  Well, this is not how I expected to wake up this morning.  After I received the news, Malia walked in and said, "Daddy,you won the Nobel Peace Prize, and it is Bo's birthday!"  And then Sasha added, "Plus, we have a three-day weekend coming up."  So it's good to have kids to keep things in perspective。

  早上好。我没有料到今早醒来是这样。在我接到消息后,玛莉娅(Malia)走进来说:“爸爸,你获诺贝尔奖了,而今天是波(Bo,小狗的名字—译注)的生日!” 萨夏(Sasha)接着说:“还有,我们就要过三天长周末了。”所以,有孩子帮助保持清醒是好事。

  I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the Nobel Committee. Let me be clear:  I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations。

  诺贝尔奖委员会的决定令我既惊讶又深受感动。我要说明:我不认为这是表彰我个人的成就,而是对为实现所有国家人民的愿望发挥美国带头作用的肯定。

  To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative

  figures who've been honored by this prize -- men and women who'veinspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace。

  坦率地说,我认为自己没有资格跻身于获此殊荣的众多变革者之列——是那些男女志士对和平的勇敢追求激励了我和整个世界。

  But I also know that this prize reflects the kind of world that those men and women, and all Americans, want to build -- a world thatgives life to the promise of our founding documents.  And I know that throughout history, the Nobel

  Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it's also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.And that is why I will accept this award as a call to action -- a call forall nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century。

  但我也知道,这个奖反映出这些男女志士及全体美国人民都想建立的那种世界——一个将我国建国纲领的承诺变为现实的世界。我知道,诺贝尔和平奖在历史上从来不是仅用来表彰具体的成就,而是也被作为一种给一系列事业增添动力的手段。因此,我将把接受这个奖视为行动的召唤——一个呼吁所有国家迎接21世纪共同挑战的行动召唤。

  These challenges can't be met by any one leaderor any one nation.  And that's why my administration has worked toestablish a new era of engagement in which all nations must take responsibility for the world we seek.  We cannot tolerate a world inwhich nuclear weapons spread to more nations and in which the terror ofa nuclear holocaust endangers more people.  And that's why we've begunto take concrete steps to pursue a world without nuclear weapons,because all nations have the right to pursue peaceful nuclear power,but all nations have the responsibility to demonstrate their peaceful intentions。

  这些挑战无法由任何一位领袖或任何一个国家应对。因此,本届政府致力于创建一个交往接触的新时代——一个所有国家必须为我们所向往的世界承担责任的时代。我们不能容忍一个核武器向更多国家扩散的世界,不能容忍一个核武大屠杀的恐怖危及更多人民的世界。正因为如此,我们已经开始为争取实现没有核武器世界而采取具体步骤,因为,虽然所有国家都有和平利用核能的权利,但所有国家也都有责任表明他们的和平意图。

  We cannot accept the growing threat posed by climate change, which could forever damage

  the world that we pass on to our children -- sowing conflict andfamine; destroying coastlines and emptying cities.  And that's why all nations must now accept their share of responsibility for transformingthe way that we use energy。

  我们不能让气候变化构成的威胁日益增长——埋下冲突与饥荒的祸种,摧毁海岸线,城市萧疏——给我们将传予子孙后代的世界造成永久性破坏。因此,我们所有国家必须承担各自的责任,改变我们使用能源的方式。

  We can't allow the differences between peoples to define the waythat we see one another, and that's why we must pursue a new beginning among people of different faiths and races and religions; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect。

  我们不能让民族间的差异来界定看待彼此的方式,因此,我们必须在不同信仰、种族和宗教的人民之间谋求一个新开端,一个以互利和互尊为基础的开端。

  And we must all do our part to resolve those conflicts that have caused so much pain and hardship

  over so many years, and that effort must include an unwavering commitment that finally realizes that the rights of all Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and security in nations of their own。

  我们必须竭尽全力解决多少年来导致无数创痛与苦难的冲突,这一努力必须包括坚定不移地致力于最后实现所有以色列人和巴勒斯坦人在各自国家平安生活的权利。

  We can't accept a world in which more people are denied opportunity and dignity

  that all people yearn for -- the ability to get an education and make adecent living; the security that you won't have to live in fear of disease or violence without hope for the future。

  我们不能容许一个使更多人被剥夺机会与尊严的世界——这种人人渴望的机会与尊严体现在,能够受教育,能够过像样的生活;享有安全感,不在疾病或暴力恐怖的威胁下无望过活。

  And even as we strive to seek a world in which conflicts are resolved peacefully and prosperity is widely shared, we have toconfront the world as we know it today.  I am the Commander-in-Chief ofa country that's responsible for ending a war and working in another theater to confront a ruthless adversary that directly threatens the American people and our allies.  I'm also aware that we are dealing with the impact of a global economic crisis that has left millions of Americans looking for work.  These are concerns that I confront everyday on behalf of the American people。

  即便在努力寻求一个和平解决冲突,共享繁荣的世界的同时,我们也必须面对今天我们眼前的世界。我是一国之最高统帅,而这个国家有责任结束一场战争并在另一战场抗击直接威胁美国人民和盟国的无情的敌人。我也清楚,我们正在应对导致数百万美国人待业求职的全球性经济危机的冲击。这些是我必须为美国人民的利益每天迎战的问题。

  Some of the work confronting us will not be completed during my presidency.  Some, like the elimination

  of nuclear weapons, may not be completed in my lifetime.  But I know these challenges can be met so long as it's recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.  This award is not simply about the efforts of my administration -- it's about the courageous efforts of people around the world。

  我们面临的一些工作不可能在我的任期内完成。有些工作,例如全部销毁核武器,可能在我的有生之年也不会完成。但我深信,只要我们认识到这些挑战不可能由一个人或一个国家来独自应对,则最终问题会得到解决。这份奖励针对的并非仅是本届政府的努力,而是全世界人民作出的无畏努力。

  And that's why this award must be shared with everyone who strives for justice and dignity -- for the young woman who marches silently inthe streets on behalf of her right to be heard even in the face of beatings and bullets; for the leader imprisoned in her own home because she refuses to abandon her commitment to democracy; for the soldier who sacrificed through tour after tour of duty on behalf of someone half aworld away; and for all those men and women across the world who sacrifice their safety and their freedom and sometime their lives for the cause of peace。

  因此,这份奖励必须由为正义和尊严而奋斗的每一个人分享——其中包括为争取自己的发言权,甘冒遭受毒打和枪击的危险默默上街游行的年轻妇女;包括因拒绝放弃追求民主而被软禁家中的领袖;包括为了地球他方的人而牺牲自己,一次次奔赴战场的士兵;包括那些在世界各地为了和平事业贡献出自己的安全、自由甚至生命的所有男女人士。

  That has always been the cause of America.  That's why the world has always looked to America.  And that's why I believe America will continue to lead。

  这一直是美国的事业,一直是世界对美国瞩以厚望的原因,也是我认为美国将继续走在最前列的原因。

  Thank you very much。

  谢谢各位。
