People Who Have Accomplished More than You at Every Age
Check it out! I could play Baa Baa Black Sheep.
(Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, age eight) I just composed my first symphony.
I could also play Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
Isn't that the same tune?
(Pablo Picasso, age 14) Do you like it? Some people think it's one of the greatest pieces of Spanish art.
(畢卡索，14 歲) 你喜歡嗎？有些人認為這是西班牙最傑出的藝術品之一。
I like this one better. I painted it earlier this year.
Uhh, mine has...mine has the word "f**k" hidden in it.
(Mary Shelley, age 18) What you're writing?
( 瑪莉‧雪萊，18 歲) 你在寫什麼？
Well, it's college essay. It's 200 words about how I learned a lot in drama club, but what I really learned about...was myself.
That's great! I'm writing Frankenstein, a landmark piece of literature that will remain relevant for centuries to come, and practically invent the genre of science fiction. May I read your thing?
(Alexander the Great, age 20) How did you get so good at this?
(亞歷山大大帝，20 歲) 你怎麼這麼會玩這個啊？
Two years of solid practice, and I'm gonna get even better at it. Two years from now, I'm gonna be the best f***ing person here getting a tiny ball in a cup.
Awesome! I'm gonna spend the next 10 years expanding my current kingdom of Macedon into one of the largest empires of the ancient world. And I'm gonna remain undefeated in battle the whole time. Looks like I'm pretty "the Great" at this too.
I should go to the gym more.
(Usain Bolt, age 22) I just set an Olympic record for the 200-meter! Later...
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait! Twenty-six years—nothing's changed?! What have I done for the past four years?
I'll tell you what I've done.
(Orson Welles, age 26) I just released Citizen Kane, known as the greatest film of all time.
(奧森‧威爾斯，26 歲) 我剛發行了《大國民》這部電影，被稱為史上最佳影片。
(Usain Bolt, age 26) Also, I just set another Olympic record. This one for the 100-meter.
(尤塞恩‧柏特，26 歲) 還有，我剛創下另一個奧運記錄。這次是一百公尺的。
(Yuri Gagarin, age 27) I am first man in space!
(尤里‧加加林，27 歲) 我是第一個上太空的人!
Hey, you wanna watch this sketch I wrote?
(Michelangelo, age 29) Sorry, I'm a little bit busy.
(米開朗基羅，29 歲) 抱歉，我有點忙。
What about you, Usain?
Actually, I shouldn't even be here. I'm not 29 years old yet! Who knows what I'll accomplish by the time I'm this age!
事實上，我根本不應該出現在這。我又還沒 29 歲!天曉得我到這年紀又會完成什麼大事!
