  After three years of this work, I went to law school, because I wanted to understand how the law should work for those in need. I became a civil rights lawyer and taught constitutional law, and after a time, I came to understand that our cherished rights of liberty and equality depend on the active participation of an awakened electorate. It was with these ideas in mind that I arrived in this capital city as a State Senator.

  我在这个职位上一待就是三年,之后我去了(哈佛)法学院学习,因为我想要弄明白法律是如何为那些需要帮助的人提供服务的。我成了一名民权事务律师,并教授宪法课程。之后不久,我逐渐意识到我们所珍惜的自由与平等的权利依赖于全体选民的觉醒和积极参与。怀着这些想法,我来到了州首府,成为了一名州参议员。

  It was here, in Springfield, where I saw all that is America converge—farmers and teachers, businessmen and laborers, all of them with a story to tell, all of them seeking a seat at the table, all of them clamoring to be heard. I made lasting friendships here—friends that I see in the audience today.

  正是在这里—斯普林菲尔德市,我眼见了美国所融汇的一切—农民和教师,商人和公司员工—所有人都有着各自的故事,所有人都希望获得一席之地,所有人都强烈期望自己的发言能够受到重视。我在这里获得了永恒的友谊—我看到许多朋友也在今天的听众当中。

  It was here we learned to disagree without being disagreeable— that it’s possible to compromise so long as you know those principles that can never be compromised; and that so long as we’re willing to listen to each other, we can assume the best in people instead of the worst.

  正是在这里,我们学会了用和颜悦色的方式去对待意见不一—在坚持原则的情况下,达成共识;只要我们愿意倾听对方的意见,我们就能以人性的真善美而非假恶丑与人进行交往。
