This Is Water [#geekgirl]


[Whenever I hear/read/am-exposed-to the genius of David Foster Wallace, I always feel that awful gut-twist of sadness when realising, again, that he took himself away from the world. RIP DFW.]

“In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.”
