选项A*

Please respond to one of the following quotations in an essay. It is not necessary to research, read, or refer to the texts from which these quotations are taken; we are looking for original, personal responses to these short excerpts. Remember that your essay should be personal in nature and not simply an argumentative essay.

  • 写文书 "Rigorous reasoning is crucial in mathematics, and insight plays an important secondary role these days. In the natural sciences, I would say that the order of these two virtues is reversed. Rigor is, of course, very important. But the most important value is insight---insight into the workings of the world. It may be because there is another guarantor of correctness in the sciences, namely, the empirical evidence from observation and experiments."
    ---Kannan Jagannathan, Professor of Physics, Amherst College
  • 写文书 "Translation is the art of bridging cultures. It's about interpreting the essence of a text, transporting its rhythms and becoming intimate with its meaning… Translation, however, doesn't only occur across languages: mentally putting any idea into words is an act of translation; so is composing a symphony, doing business in the global market, understanding the roots of terrorism. No citizen, especially today, can exist in isolation—that is, untranslated.”
    ---Ilan Stavans, Professor of Latin American and Latino Culture, Amherst College, Robert Croll '16 and Cedric Duquene '15, from "Interpreting Terras Irradient," Amherst Magazine, Spring 2015.
  • 写文书 "Creating an environment that allows students to build lasting friendships, including those that cut across seemingly entrenched societal and political boundaries… requires candor about the inevitable tensions, as well as about the wonderful opportunities, that diversity and inclusiveness create.”
    ---Carolyn "Biddy" Martin, President of Amherst College, Letter to Amherst College Alumni and Families, December 28, 2015.
  • 写文书 "Difficulty need not foreshadow despair or defeat. Rather achievement can be all the more satisfying because of obstacles surmounted."
    ---Attributed to William Hastie, Amherst Class of 1925, the first African-American to serve as a judge for the United States Court of Appeals

翻译:请用短文的形式回应下面的一段引文。研究、阅读或引用它们的出处是不必要的。我们希望看到对这些引文的原创的、个性化的回应。请记住你的短文的性质应该是带有你个性的,而不单纯是一篇议论文。

  • “严密的推理在数学中是至关重要的,近来洞察力也会扮演重要的辅助角色。但在自然科学中,我得承认这两个美德的次序要颠倒过来。严密当然还是很重要的。但最重要的价值在于洞察力——对世界运作原理的洞悉。这或许是因为科学里有另一个保证正确性的因素的缘故,即由观察和实验得来的经验证据。”
    ---Kannan Jagannathan,阿默斯特学院物理教授
  • “翻译是连接不同文化的艺术。翻译是关于阐释文本的内在,转递它的韵律以及亲近它的含义……然而翻译并不只是针对语言而言——把任何想法灌注到词里都可以视为是翻译的一种,而谱写交响乐、进行国际贸易或理解恐怖主义的根源也属于翻译。尤其是在今天,没有公民能孤立存在,或者换种说法,拒绝翻译而存在。”
    ---Ilan Stavans,阿默斯特学院拉丁美洲与拉丁文化教授,与两位学生Robert Croll与Cedric Duquene合著的文章《阐释“光耀大地”》,发表于2015年春校刊。“光耀大地”(Terras Irradient)为阿默斯特校训
  • “创造一个让学生突破社会和政治藩篱而建立长久友谊的环境……需要坦率直面多元文化和兼容并蓄的议题。它们既会不可避免造成紧张,又能同时创造妙不可言的机会。”
    ---Carolyn “Biddy” Martin,阿默斯特学院校长,致校友和校友家属的信,2015年12月28日
  • “困难并不预兆着绝望或失败。克服的障碍往往带来更大的满足感。”
    ---据称是William Hastie所言。阿默斯特学院1925级毕业生,美国联邦上诉法院的第一位黑人法官
