David Foster Wallace, Kenyon College, Commencement

Congratulations to the Class of 2013 wherever you are.

As your graduation gift, I’d like to share with you the video found  below. It contains nine and half minutes of essential wisdom that you undoubtedly didn’t get in any class and that everyone can use, no matter what stage of life you currently find yourselves in.  The late David Foster Wallace delivered the following remarks in 2005 when he was asked to give the Commencement address at Kenyon College but his thoughts are timeless. (Thanks to Kevin Spacey for tweeting the video and reminding me of its existence.)

Have a nice day! 🙂
