I have listened to "This is Water" hundreds of times. At first, I would listen and laugh. Now, years later, I listen and cry. The text hasn't changed, I have. This is the best 20 minute synopsis of the purpose of life that I have ever heard.
(Also highly recommended - "Every Love Story is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace")

This is a great commencement speech. Perhaps the greatest ever. I highly recommend this recording. Give it a listen.

This speech is strikingly objective. What it is not is condescending repetitive or cliché. Wallace does not strive to give you good advise but to simple remind you to breathe, when it is all too simple to forget how to. If you're a David Foster Wallace fan, this is undoubtedly a gem to keep.
