A short film by The Glossary of the late writer David Foster Wallace‘s inspirational 2005 speech to the graduation class of Kenyon College Ohio. The Glossary sez:

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.
