人物|校长陈吉宁:从来就不是传统的学院

金大中大半生处于逆境 坚韧不拔被喻“忍冬草”

他的魅力来钢铁一般的意志、自信的乐观主义、坚韧不拔的毅力,来自于准确分析宏观形势,在正确的时间做了正确的事。

The surgery in January, the Olympic games in August. It's very little time, but we will do it.

做优秀的普通人——访刘云浩校友

在我们的一生中,我们能实际拥有的就是“现在”。如果为过往经历感到失望,对未来忧心忡忡,无不影响着我们现在的发挥。我们必须把每一天过的称心如意,这是我们唯一真正拥有的时间。

永远不要成为沉迷于不可控系统的人。不要花费一点时间在你不能完全掌控的事情上陷入思虑。请把专注放在“我能怎样成为更有价值的自己”这个问题上。人有价值才能获得自己和别人的尊重。

Introduction

``You see, the rings of Saturn are vast and majestic, resembling a miracle. To humans, they appear as timeless creations, unchanged throughout eternity. Compared to them, the mountains, rivers, and streams on Earth seem insignificant; we would even prefer to swear allegiance to Saturn's rings. However, from the perspective of cosmic evolution, the rings of Saturn are a fleeting existence, a beautiful exception at best. Since the formation of the solar system, all sorts of magical phenomena have unfolded around the planet. Saturn has witnessed much and experienced even more; for the most part, it has been as unremarkable as other gas giants. Until yesterday, this beautiful anomaly had only just caught up with it. Yet, for Saturn, it's nothing significant—it doesn't need to pause for such things. As a planet, the vast majority of its existence is faithfully spent orbiting a star. Cleaning the dust around the star, getting bigger and stronger, extinguishing the fire in their hearts, and then dying.''

  • Music Pt. II
  • I am a huge fan of classical music. Sibelius and Bruckner are two of my favorite composers.
  • I love listen to Sibelius's symphonies (Favorite: 5 & 7). Find the lonesome, hope and calm in his music.
  • Bruckner is among the few composers whose work captured my interest early on. Find the majesty, sacredness, and redundancy in his music.
  • Simon Rattle's Sibelius Symphonies (BPO). I like the big, thick sound of his BPO cycle.
  • More discussons on Rattle's Sibelius Symphonies. Listen to this.
  • Bruckner - Symphony No 3 in D minor - Celibidache
