I learned about serif and san-serif typefaces, aboutvarying the amount of space between different lettercombinations, about what makes great typographygreat. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in away that science can't capture, and I found itfascinating. None of this had even a hope of anypractical application in my life. But ten years later,when we were designing the first Macintosh computer,it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautifultypography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never hadmultiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts.
我学习写带短截线和不带短截线的字体,根据不同字母组合调整其间距,并学习怎样把版式调整得更好。这门课太棒了,既有历史价值,又有艺术造诣,这一点科学就做不到,我觉得它妙不可言。当时我并不指望书法在我以后的生活中能有什么使用价值。但是,十年之后,我们在设计第一台Macintosh计算机时,它一下子浮现在我眼前。于是,我们把这些东西全都设计进了Macintosh计算机中。这是第一台有这么漂亮的文字版式的计算机。要不是我当初在大学里偶然选了这门课,Macintosh计算机绝不会有那么多种印刷字体或间距安排合理的字号。
And since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that no personal computer would have them. If Ihad never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on that calligraphy class, and personalcomputers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible toconnect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear lookingbackwards 10 years later.
要不是 Windows 照搬了 Macintosh, 个人电脑可能不会有这些字体和字号。要是我当初没有退学,我绝不会碰巧选了这门书法课。个人电脑也可能不会有现在这些漂亮的版式了。当然,我在大学里不可能从这些点滴上看到它与将来的关系,十年之后再回头看,两者之间的关系就非常、非常清楚了。
Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust insomething—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever—because believing that the dots will connectdown the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off thewell-worn path, and that will make all the difference.
你们同样不可能从现在这个点上看到将来;只有回头看时,才会发现它们之间的关系。所以,你们要相信这些点滴迟早会连接在一起。你们必须相信某些东西——勇气、命运、生命、以及因果报应,等等。要相信,这些点会为你铺平前进的道路,会给与你听从自己的心声的自信,会引导你走自己的路,然后取得成就。
