一位美国专栏女作家写给年青人看的“人生感语”,有些令人鼓舞,有些令人看化。
  
  *不知能不能在此发MV,若不能发上,麻烦班竹删丢此贴。
  
  
  
  Ladies and gentlemen of the class of '99
  
  "WEAR SUNSCREEN!"
  
  If I could offer you only one tip for the future, "sunscreen" would be it.
  
  The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists,
  
  whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience.
  
  I will dispense this advice NOW!
  
  Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth.
  
  Oh, never mind.
  
  You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded.
  
  But trust me, in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.
  
  You are not as fat as you imagine.
  
  Don't worry about the future.
  
  Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.
  
  The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind,
  
  The kind that blindside you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday.
  
  Do one thing every day that scares you.
  
  Sing
  
  Don't be reckless with other people's hearts.
  
  Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
  
  Floss
  
  Don't waste your time on jealousy.
  
  Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.
  
  The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself.
  
  Remember compliments you receive.
  
  Forget the insults.
  
  If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
  
  Keep your old love letters.
  
  Throw away your old bank statements.
  
  Stretch
  
  Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life.
  
  The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives.
  
  Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't.
  
  Get plenty of calcium.
  
  Be kind to your knees.
  
  You'll miss them when they're gone.
  
  Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't.
  
  Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't.
  
  Maybe you'll divorce at 40.
  
  Maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.
  
  Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much,
  
  or berate yourself either.
  
  Your choices are half chance.
  
  So are everybody else's.
  
  Enjoy your body.
  
  Use it every way you can.
  
  Don't be afraid of it or of what other people think of it.
  
  It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.
  
  Dance
  
  Even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.
  
  Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.
  
  Do not read beauty magazines.
  
  They will only make you feel ugly.
  
  
  
  "Brother and sister together we'll make it through,
  Someday a spirit will take you and guide you there
  I know that you're hurting but I've been waiting there for you
  and I'll be there just helping you out
  whenever I can..."
  
  
  Get to know your parents.
  
  You never know when they'll be gone for good.
  
  Be nice to your siblings.
  
  They're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
  
  Understand that friends come and go,
  
  but with a precious few you should hold on.
  
  Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle, because the older you get,
  
  the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.
  
  Live in "New York City" once, but leave before it makes you hard.
  
  Live in "Northern California" once, but leave before it makes you soft.
  
  Travel
  
  Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise.
  
  Politicians will philander.
  
  You, too, will get old.
  
  And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young,
  
  prices were reasonable, politicians were noble, and children respected their elders.
  
  Respect your elders.
  
  Don't expect anyone else to support you.
  
  Maybe you have a trust fund.
  
  Maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse.
  
  But you never know when either one might run out.
  
  Don't mess too much with your hair or by the time you're 40 it will look 85.
  
  Be careful whose advice you buy,
  
  but be patient with those who supply it.
  
  Advice is a form of nostalgia.
  
  Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal,
  
  wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.
  
  But trust me on the sunscreen.

  Everybody's Free (to wear sunscreen)是芝加哥Tibune報的一位專欄作家 - Mary Schmich於1997年發表的一篇文章。有一天Schmich在街上走著走著,看到了幾位年輕女孩在烈陽下做日光浴,腦海中馬上飄過一個想法:『小姐,至少該擦擦防曬油(Sunscreen)吧....』,老人勸說心態一上身,Schmich馬上文思泉湧,趕緊到了附近的咖啡店坐下來,揮筆寫成這篇獻給年輕朋友的「警示文]
  
  這篇文章被【紅磨坊】導演巴茲魯曼在一場畢業生致詞的場合中拿出來引用,之後還拍成了MTV發行單曲,1999年收錄在Something for Everybody這張專輯裡。此首歌紅了之後出現了很多翻唱和改編,當然也有不少反諷的歌詞出現,有興趣的人輸入歌名再加"parody"就可以找到。
  以下:
  
  盡情享受跟隨青春而來的力量和美貌。啊算了,你一定是失去青春後才會明白那力量和美貌。但是相信我,再過20年你將檢視自己此時的照片,而不敢相信那時錯失了多少機會,而那時的你看起來又是多麼地光彩耀人。
  
  你沒有想像中的胖。
  
  每天做一件讓自己感到害怕的事。
  
  開口歌唱。
  
  不要浪費時間嫉妒別人。有時你贏了,有時你輸了。這場比賽很漫長,而往往到最後只剩下你自己。
  
  記住人家給你的讚美,忘記人家給你的羞辱。不過若真的辦到了,記得告訴我祕訣。
  
  把往日的情書留下來,把那些過期的銀行帳單丟了。
  
  伸展自己的身體。
  
  不要因為不知道要做什麼而感到罪惡。我認識很多有趣的人在22歲時都還不知道人生的志向。某些更有趣的四十歲中年人到現在都還不知道。
  
  好好對待自己的膝蓋,當它們不在時你會非常懷念。
  
  跳舞吧,就算你只敢在客廳裡扭動扭動。
  
  看清楚使用說明書,就算你不打算遵守它。
  
  不要碰時裝美容雜誌,它們只會讓你感到醜陋。
  
  好好和爸媽相處,你不知道他們何時會離開你,永遠地。
  
  明白朋友來來去去這個道理,但是特別的幾個一定得牢牢抓住。用心經營你們之間地理或生活 慣上的差異,因為你會發現當年紀越長,那些年輕時的死黨越不可缺。
  
  一生住紐約一次,在它使你變得難以親近前趕緊離開。一生住加州一次,在它使你變得意志軟弱前趕緊離開。
  
  旅行。
  
  接受一些無法改變的事實。物價上漲,政客玩弄政權,而你則是會漸漸變老。當你老的時候,你大概會想起以前那段美妙時光,那段物價過得去,政客清廉,而年輕人還算尊老敬賢的日子。
  不要把自己頭髮搞來搞去。不然等你到了45歲,會看起來像85。
  
  至少至少要相信我,一定要擦防曬乳。
