同时,也是一个自信前行的国家,走出战争的阴霾,塑造和平景象,保障每个人的自由与尊严,我们相信美国是一个慷慨大度的国家,一个悲天悯人的国家,更是一个海纳百川的国家。我们要接纳在我国学习并对我们的国旗宣誓满怀梦想的移民。 (来源:老牌的英语学习网站 http://www.EnglishCN.com)


To the young boy on the south side of Chicago who sees a life beyond the nearest street corner.
也要接纳,身处芝加哥南部市井之中却能志存高远的男孩。


To the furniture worker's child in North Carolina who wants to become a doctor or a scientist, an engineer or an entrepreneur, a diplomat or even a president - that's the future we hope for. That's the vision we share. That's where we need to go - forward.
还要接纳北卡州家具工人的孩子,他们梦想着成为医生、科学家、工程师、企业家、外交官,甚至是总统——那正是我们所期望的未来。是我们共同的愿景,是我们的目标——前进。


That's where we need to go.
那是我们的目标。


Now, we will disagree, sometimes fiercely, about how to get there. As it has for more than two centuries, progress will come in fits and starts. It's not always a straight line. It's not always a smooth path.
对于如何实现这一目标我们可能会意见向左,有时分歧很大。两个多世纪以来,一直如此,我们总会断断续续地取得进步。前进的路线总有曲折,不会一直是平坦通途。


By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won't end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward. But that common bond is where we must begin. Our economy is recovering. A decade of war is ending. A long campaign is now over.
认识到我们拥有共同的希望和梦想,单靠这一点无法终结所有的政治僵局或解决我们所有的问题,即使建立共识,作出推动这个国家向前所必要的艰难妥协,这些艰辛的工作也无法得以替代。但我们必须以这一共同纽带为起点。我们的经济正在复苏,为期十年的战争已近尾声,一场漫长的竞选现已结束。


(APPLAUSE)
(掌声)


And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, I have learned from you, and you've made me a better president. And with your stories and your struggles, I return to the White House more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead.
无论我是否赢得了你的选票,我倾听了你的呼声,从你身上得到了教益,你是我成长为更优秀的总统。带着你们的故事和奋斗史,我回到白宫时,对面临的任务和未来,会更为坚定、更有激情。


Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual.
今晚,你们投票换来的将会是积极的行动,而不是以往那样的政治游戏。


You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. And in the coming weeks and months, I am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. Reducing our deficit. Reforming our tax code. Fixing our immigration system. Freeing ourselves from foreign oil. We've got more work to do.
你们选择了我们,是让我们关注你们的就业, 而非我们自己的官位。在接下来的数周、数月中,我期待着与两党领袖进行接触与合作,共同应对我们必须携手攻克的难关。降低赤字,改革税法,完善移民体系,摆脱对进口石油的依赖,我们还有更多的工作要完成。


(APPLAUSE)
(掌声)


OBAMA: But that doesn't mean your work is done. The role of citizens in our Democracy does not end with your vote. America's never been about what can be done for us. It's about what can be done by us together through the hard and frustrating, but necessary work of self-government. That's the principle we were founded on.
奥巴马:但这并不意味着你们的任务已经结束,公民在我们的民主体系中所扮演的角色,并不止于投票。美利坚的意义并不在于别人能为我们做什么,而是在我们能一起做什么。而这依靠的就是公民自治,这虽然困难而又往往令人灰心,但却是不可或缺的。


This country has more wealth than any nation, but that's not what makes us rich. We have the most powerful military in history, but that's not what makes us strong. Our university, our culture are all the envy of the world, but that's not what keeps the world coming to our shores.
这是我们的建国理念,我们国家的财富多于其他任何国家,但我们的富有并不源于此,我们有史上最强的军事力量,但这并不是我们力量的源头。我们的大学,我们的文化,为世界所歆羡,可这并非吸引各国人民前来我国的根源。


What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. The belief that our destiny is shared; that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations. The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That’s what makes America great.
真正让美国与众不同的,是将这个地球上最多元化的国家的人民团结到一起的那些纽带。是我们共命运的信念,是只有当我们肩负某些对彼此以及对后代的责任美国才能走下去的信念,是无数的美国人前赴后继为之奋斗的自由──它既赋予了我们权利,也给我们带来了责任;是爱、慈善、义务和爱国。正是这些让美国变得伟大。


I am hopeful tonight because I’ve seen the spirit at work in America. I’ve seen it in the family business whose owners would rather cut their own pay than lay off their neighbors, and in the workers who would rather cut back their hours than see a friend lose a job. I’ve seen it in the soldiers who reenlist after losing a limb and in those SEALs who charged up the stairs into darkness and danger because they knew there was a buddy behind them watching their back.
