[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.”Altruism, CleverClogs, Community, Connecting, Joy, Lovely Prepare For Feels, Thank Feck The World Balances Out Somehow
