This Is Water: Choose to Think Freely 09:23

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace gave a commencement speech to the graduating class of Kenyon College. While the speech did not become widely known until after Wallace's tragic death, his powerful words challenge people from all walks of life to think in a differently light. Just in time for graduation season, The Glossary created this compelling tribute to the speech. According to The Glossary, "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."
