On May 21, 2005, David Foster Wallace got up before the graduating class of Kenyon college and delivered one of history’s most memorable commencement addresses. It wasn’t until Wallace’s death in 2008 that the speech took on a life of its own under the title This Is Water, and was even adapted into a short book. Now, the fine folks of The Glossary have remixed an abridged version of Wallace’s original audio with a sequence of aptly chosen images

Impressive speech, used parts of it for the white coat ceremony. Students should stay aware of their experiences during their clerkships, stay aware of their situation and learning opportunities. This is water…..

Thanks Brain Pickings
