VOTD: 'This is Water'.... David Foster Wallace (video)

Probably the most Inspirational thing you'll see all day :)

As we move into Friday and put our busy week to a close.... I urge everybody to watch this truly inspirational video put together by The Glossary based on author David Foster Wallace's 2005  'This is Water' commencement address for the graduating class of Kenyon College

-watch the video below: 

Although the messages in the video touch on things that most of us already realize or have thought of... I immediately started to view things differently. 

The video is a short 9-minute video and I recommend everyone to watch it.
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.We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).-The Glossary
