Words of Advice from Bill Gates:
Life is wonderful, but it is also challenging at times.
Bill Gates  is one of the most successful businessman in history.   He
recently gave the following advice to a group of students about 11 things
they may not learn in school.   He talked about how feel-good, politically
correct teachings created a full generation of kids with no concept of
reality.   This concept will set them up for failure in the real world.
We want all of you to be very successful, so consider some of his words:

Rule 1.人生並不公平─你要適應它。
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2.這個世界並不在乎你的自尊,你想要對自己感到滿意,就得先成就些什麼事。
Rule 2:The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you
to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3.你不可能離開學校就可以有四萬美元的年薪,也不可能成為配有汽車電話的副
Rule 3:You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school.
You won't be a vice-president with a car phone, until you earn both.

Rule 4.如果你認為你的老師很嚴苛,等你有了老闆你就知道了。
Rule 4:If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He
doesn't have tenure.

Rule 5.煎漢堡並不會讓你有失身分,你的祖父母對煎漢堡有不同的定義,他們稱之為
Rule 5:Flipping burger is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a
different word for burger flipping they called it opportunity.

Rule 6.如果你搞砸了,那並不是你父母的錯,因此,不要抱怨你的錯誤,而是從中記
Rule 6:If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about
your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7.在你出生之前,你的父母並不像現在這麼乏味,他們之所以如此,是因此他們
Rule 7:Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they now are.
They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening
to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from
the parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your
own room.

Rule 8.你的學校可能已經廢除優等生和劣等生的分法,但人生並沒有。在某些學校裡,
Rule 8:Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life has
not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you
as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the
slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9.生命並不是以學期來劃分的。你不會有暑假,更不會有老闆有興趣幫助你發現
Rule 9:Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very
few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your
own time.

Rule 10.電視並非真實的人生。在真時的世界裡,人們得離開咖啡廳去工作。
Rule 10:Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to
leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11.有善的對待討厭鬼,你可能最後會為其中一個人工作。
Rule 11:Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
