This is Water

Most commencement speeches aren’t worth remembering. This is Water, an address delivered in 2005 to Kenyon College by novelist David Foster Wallace, is one of the few exceptions.

After Wallace died in 2008, the speech (of which you can read a full transcription here) took on a life of it’s own and even became a book. The book version is pretty great, so is this condensed, video version by The Glossary.
