Reading: ‘This Is Water’ | David Foster Wallace

What: A transcript of a speech given by David Foster Wallace to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. It’s a firework of wisdom unselfishly dispensing soothing insight on how to remain curious, alert, compassionate, gentle and caring human beings even as daily experiences attempt to persuade us to be otherwise.

Recommendation: Absolutely read this. It’s a book you can keep coming back to. One of his most interesting points concerns the importance of choosing what we think about. See page 14. Here’s the book on my Amazon store for about $10.
