This is water : some thoughts, delivered on a significant occasion about living a compassionate life
by David Foster Wallace
College can seem like a bewildering and overwhelming time and so rarely can a book crystallize a student’s purpose in just the right way. Fortunately, David Foster Wallace’s 2005 commencement speech (reprinted as this book) articulates the point of higher education so well that I’m haunted by it on a near daily basis.
