Carta de Ray Bradbury a jóvenes estudiantes: "Sé tú mismo"

Carta de Ray Bradbury a jóvenes estudiantes: "Sé tú mismo" | vulbus incognita StarBase (VISB) | Scoop.it

En 1991 el escritor Ray Bradbury, escribió una carta a escolares a petición del profesor William Stanhope. Estas fueron las palabras que el autor quiso enviarles:

"Querido, William Stanhope:

La decisión más importante de mi vida se produjo cuando tenía nueve años... Coleccionaba las tiras de Buck Rogers de 1929 cuando un compañero de quinto curso se rió de mí.

Rompí los tebeos. Una semana después, rompí a llorar.

¿Por qué lloraba? ¿Quién ha muerto?

Por mí, fue la respuesta. ¡Había roto el futuro!

Eso es lo que había hecho.

Y después de aquello nunca volví a escuchar a ningún otro maldito e idiota compañero de clase que dudara de mí.

¿Qué aprendí?

A ser yo mismo y nunca permitir que otros juzgasen por mí o interfiriesen en mi vida.

Chicos, haced lo mismo. Sé tú mismo. Ama lo que tú (verdadramente) amas.

Con los mejores deseos.

Ray B. 28/10/1991"

cita Bradbury

cita Bradbury | vulbus incognita StarBase (VISB) | Scoop.it

"No puedes aprender a escribir en una universidad. Es un lugar muy malo para los escritores porque los profesores siempre piensan que saben más que uno, y no es cierto. Ellos tienen muchos prejuicios. Digamos: a ellos les gusta Henry James, pero ¿qué pasa si no quieres escribir como Henry James? (…) La biblioteca, por otro lado, no tiene límites. La información está ahí para que la interpretes. No hay nadie que te diga que pensar, que te diga si eres bueno o no. Lo descubres por ti mismo."

Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation | vulbus incognita StarBase (VISB) | Scoop.it

by Patricia Stewart
June 7th, 2012
Author : Patricia Stewart, Staff Writer
Jennifer surveyed the interior of the sleek two-person starcruiser. “Nice ship, Larry. What did you say you paid for it?”
“One point five on Giarcslist. That’s 50% under market.”
“Wow,” she replied as she added an emphasizing whistle. “What’s the catch?”
“There’s no catch. I’m just an excellent negotiator.”
Larry could feel her laser eyes of doubt boring through his mendacious grin. “Oh, okay,” he relented. “It’s an Arcturian ship. Strictly voice command.”
“But it accepts standard galactic too, right?”
“Well, not at the moment. But when we get it back to Sol, I can get a translator module installed.”
“We’re more than seven thousand light years from home,” Jennifer pointer out. “Are you planning to hire an Arcturian pilot? Because if you are, you can let me off right now. Those reptiles smell awful.”
“Relax, sweetheart,” Larry replied as he pulled an object from his flightsuit’s vest pocket. “It came with a ‘Larousse Arcturian-English Pocket Dictionary’.”
“What’s that? Is that a book? Are you kidding me? A paper book? That’s it; I’m taking a cab home. You tell that salesman to redock this instant.”
“Really, Jennifer, you need to take a sed. Besides, he’s already docked with another customer. Look, just sit down in the co-pilot’s seat. I’ll just warm up with a few simple commands. How hard can it be? That’s my girl. Now, just buckle up, and enjoy the view.”
Jennifer reluctantly engaged her harness, but folded her arms in a stern ‘I’ll do it, but I won’t like it’ posture.
“Look at that,” said Larry pointing out beyond the cockpit’s panoramic forward port. “The Messier 4 Globular Cluster. Four hundred thousand stars. Beautiful, isn’t it. A quick tour, and then straight home. You’ll see; it’ll be fun.” Larry quickly leafed through the dictionary and found the warp commands. The book had seen better days, he conceded, but he couldn’t let Jennifer see him struggling. He slid his index finger down the badly stained page searching for the correct phrase. “Ah, here it is,” he guessed, “warp one. Okay, here we go.”
Swallowing hard, he gave the three word command, “Whöle. Êeesh. Ick¢.” The tiny ship lurched forward at maximum warp, straight ahead into the globular cluster. Larry, who had been standing, was thrown aftward, into the canted bulkhead. Cursing himself for forgetting to activate the inertial dampeners, he clawed himself forward into the pilot’s seat. Jennifer was screaming hysterically. Stars streaked past them like a meteor storm on steroids. In the distance, Larry spotted a stationary dot of light that was getting brighter by the second. Realizing that he only had seconds to avert the collision, he ripped into the dictionary looking for the ‘All Stop” command. Finding it quicker that he could have dreamed, he frantically yelled, “Kähs-Oope¢.”
Larry slammed head first into the viewport, as the ship came to an abrupt stop a mere one hundred thousand kilometers in front of a boiling red giant. “Dammit,” he moaned as he checked his forehead tentatively for blood. Then, turning his attention toward Jennifer, he asked, “Are you alright, Honey?”
In shock, Jennifer stared at the behemoth orb hovering directly in front of the ship. Solar prominences large enough to engulf several dozen Jupiters, danced around the periphery in ultra slow motion. In awe, she exclaimed “Holy shit,” and the tiny ship lurched forward at maximum warp.

“With school turning out more runners, jumpers, racers, tinkerers, grabbers, snatchers, fliers, and swimmers instead of examiners, critics, knowers, and imaginative creators, the word ‘intellectual,’ of course, became the swear word it deserved to be.”

Con la escuela convirtiendo en más corredores, saltadores, corredores, manitas, los usurpadores, arrebatadores, volantes, y los nadadores en lugar de los examinadores, críticos, conocedores y creadores imaginativos, la palabra "intelectual", por supuesto, se convirtió en la palabra juro que merecía ser
